BTW - John Dowd is a mail art cult figure. There was a show of his work at Printed Matter in NYC April May 2017. That got some coverage here at IUOMA.

Well, Facebook censored my link to the John Dowd show because there was a pic of his bare butt. Can you believe?

Hi Karl, thanks. I came across this issue of "So & So" by chance in a box of stuff I had. (You know how that is.) I have no memory of it or how I got it, but - yeah - it's a great collection and ahead of its time when you consider it was published in 1980.

Of course, it's getting interest on Facebook. But nobody remembers John Marron. I'm sure he is connected to the L=A=N=Gpoets. I think So & So was considered a LANGPO organ. But no one can confirm or deny.

Anyway, yeah, I wanted to share. It's a great piece of history. Unfortunately, you're not in this one Carl! How rare.

By Philip Whalen. In "So & So 8" (zine). Visual Syntax Issue. Summer 1980. Edited by John Marron, Folsom St. San Francisco, CA, USA. Contains vispo and m-a. For the Beatniks - The character Warren Coughlin in Jack Kerouac's "Dharma Bums" is based on Whalen. And Whalen is a very fine poet as well. This is either a journal page or reprint, based on the date. I think Whalen kept journals.
