Smiles & Smirks

Art with a measure of humour is required by Walmarth Corporation for its chain of supermarkets, located in the Queendom of Retailia and in Cascadia Artpost. Through this collaboration Cascadia Artpost and Mail Art Martha are continuing to give impulse to Trashpo, the artistic vision of Diane Keys.

‘Walmarth Corporation is an entertaining and witty parody of corporate, consumer culture. Cascadia Artpost’s painstaking realization of Mail Art Martha’s ideas through detailed, special effects style models makes Walmarth Corporation one of the crowning achievements of Trashpo in the half-decade that it has been producing a large quantity of art.’

In addition to Trashpo the Corporation has now expanded to include political satire, parody, comics, caricature and witty playfulness.
Your contribution is needed to fill the shelves.

Thanks William. Not sure I agree either with women being a joke on men or the other way around. Nothing funny the way humanity is behaving at present.

Thank you Fleur.

IUOMA came back to me!

I suppose Ruud adding a SSL certificate did the trick. My PC is full of security apps and it kept saying IUOMA is not secure. It took a while to become effective, sometimes things do not happen immediate in the www.
I was depressed and not sleeping well which I put to the strange life we are leading but it was not that. Now I am full of zest and gleeeeee! yi peeeee!
So you have to put up with me again!

That is how  I felt, grounded to pulp.

Thank you Michael you got it!

Martha, I was glad to get your message that this venue is working for you again. I've had some problems in the past, too, but they worked themselves out after a few hours. The ning platform does seem to be a bit flaky.

What an ordeal, Martha! I hope that everything gets cleared up soon.

Sorry to hear that Martha.  Damn those pesky trojans!   Hope you are all sorted soon.  Hope we all are!  It's going to be a long tough Winter!  Still, we have our mail art to keep us warm and the new THING that never needs batteries!

Well it worked. I am shut out of most of IUOMA ning, apparently a spammer got to my page some weeks ago. First, all pictures diaappeared then my list of contacts too, so I cannot message anybody. I have been investigating and it is (probably, I am not sure of anything now) my browser vrus defenses. I found out that a trojan can be put in your computer which is then triggered off by a bit of code in a jpg. Amazing.
All to get to my millions it seems.
But Trump is coming round to conceed and we are going to have several vaccines soon!
So cheers to all and over and out.
