Flop note one

"I don't know.  Looks kinda 20th C to me.  I have some 5¼" disks here somewhere."
Bradford commented on Jayne Barket Lyons's group A Touch of Vintage
"True.  It's been gone for weeks leaving no way to alter/delete posts.  The Ning-Nerds need to put down their snacks and fix something."
Bradford commented on Iver Zinaver's photo

Hello (b)

"I know I haven't seen a spiny weirdolope shrooming since the 1960s."
Bradford replied to Ilya Semenenko-Basin's discussion The old envelopes
"Commemorative envelopes in the Space/Astronomy area are collectible as-is or as the basis for further embellishment."
Bradford commented on Mel Anie's event Musiamo Cent (Mail art call)
"The link to 5ftstoryhouse returns a "SERVER NOT FOUND" error message."

Musiamo Cent (Mail art call) at Specific Everywhere

January 31, 2021 at 1am to May 10, 2021 at 11:45pm
Mail Art Call: I am building Musiamo Cent (Museum 100). If you want to be a building block for the first museum in a land that does not yet exist but to which I hold the blueprint, send a piece of mail art. The inaugural collection for Musiamo Cent will be curated over 100 days as a fictional parallel to documenta 15.  Submissions received from now will be entered with in-situ text into the museum collection on the 5Ft Storyhouse blog from 31 Jan - 10 May 2021 (100 days). No returns. All welcome. Thank you. Sala hantle.Mailing address is on Mel Anie's profile.(A working link to the blog is above in the event details.)See More
Bradford commented on Sabela Baña's blog post I received mail art of Vittore Baroni from Italy
"I can't pick a favorite from all this treasure, but I can agree that I'm also from a pre-digital age."

"The guy who does WIPE does, doesn't he? All kinds of tissue papers? This is special anti-bacterial, anti-this, anti-that; pro-support. "

":) Aside from the 'potatoes', did you see the postmark on this stamp? It's especially for you!!!"
Bradford posted photos
Bradford commented on Michael Leigh's group Mail Art UK
"I forgot to add, sorry about your privatized postal rates going up every year.  As you can see from the table I posted, our rates do not go up as often and are lower overall.  The future, I cannot predict."
Bradford commented on Carien van Hest's photo


"Yes, a very resourceful and creative idea.  To think of how many Rolodexes™ I've passed up at thrift stores!  Once filled with ATCs/Artistamps, it becomes a Dial-A-Mood."

Profile Information

Mail-Artist since:
Hmmm, been doin' weird things with mail since the early 70s, but only with friends/family until 1994.
My Website (without http://):
Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
The usual reasons: it's truly democratic (if you ignore the poor folks who don't have mail service) and it is NECESSARY for my soul to create/share art in such a fashion. I can't quite put a finger on why I went from collecting stamps to making my own stamps when in my early teens thinking I was the only weirdo on the planet to do such a thing.

Dear Bradford, thank you for your feedback on my poems. I could tell you the addresses on the Internet where all available English translations of my poems are located.

Hi Bradford! Thank you for the welcome to IUOMA! I apologize for the late reply- still learning the site. Happy New Year!

Thanks, will try that. I got a friend who is an IT geek whom I should have consulted. I tried to send this from Messages and it did not go when I hit send. Why is it only this site affected and no any other? Really weird.

Thanks for the comment on my Workspace photos, Bradford.

That coffee mug you commented on is my favorite and one that I was recently gifted from a friend who lived above the Propt Theater in Chicago. They recently left their original theater space and had a huge open house with lots of free stuff to take...I couldnt help but accept it as my friend placed it ontop of the armfull of theater stuff I went home with:)

21.10.20 Dare Sir Bradford,...looking forward to the second coming of the Yves Klein postcard ("Leap into the Void")  -a monumental  event in contemporary art.......& the Doonesbury Cartoon Postage Stamps (via Michael Thompson) .....I had not ever heard of that one but  what an exciting,strange & exceptionable collectible that must be even among traditional  & conservative stamp collectors!!!!!   SinCelery, Richard Canard

I mailed my first piece in 1990, but perhaps some of the old envelopes that I've employed have earlier dates on them, but I can't contend that my work pre-dates 1990. My first was a stamp of Bug Bunny taken from a magazine with his ears extending beyond the borders of the cartoon perforations. My motivation came from an article about a Doonesbury cartoon that was drawn as postage stamps and folks cut those out, glued them to envelopes and sent them successfully through the mail.
