I couldn't possibly be prepared when I received THREE packed envelopes in one day from Nancy Bell Scott. She is so compassionate that when I run out of trash--she sends me hers. There is a little bit of everything in this huge trash pile: cut up pieces of hard cover book, hand written notes galor, lock of hair!, studio scraps, food packaging, stamps, mail, receipts--too numerous to name. i am learning so much about Nancy and am so grateful that she is keeping me in garbage for weeks. She has even promised to send more when I am out. That might be by the real apocalypse of 2012 in which we will all be part of the rubble. Thanks Nancy:)

That's easy Snooker. It's not litterpo! It's litter-ature! Very litter-ary.

DK, just saw your message about the "X" in Fluxus. Heck, yes. Haven't you noticed the stamps from the Fluxus mail-art you receive? I think even Kat has one. Here's one from Tiziana in Italy. I'm wondering if Fluxus will just be known as X someday:

I suppose if we burned everything, all that would be left is ash-emics.

I do remember you posting this. His website is hilarious. I love 'fluxus is a pain in art's ass'

The matchbox is not a D-Koy. You remember that? "Use these matches to destroy all art...:? By Ben Vautier - European Fluxus guy of the Old Fluxus. Pretty radical.

Excuse me for getting all fired up!

It's a bit extreme, but okay. Where is the bonfire?
