"Ficus offers proof of something I have feared recently: An "Insect Trust" has burrowed or burroughs into the asemic movement. These are produced by mutations caused by the ever-more-powerful chemicals needed in the extermination process. I…"

"25.12.21 Dare Ficus S.,  ...what bugs me about this bark-beetle asemic calligraphy business is the fact that it is far more interesting than the combinations that I can create.Thanx for sharing . SinCelery, Richard Canard"

"I've stumbled upon a New to me [fr, "neuf"] source of asemic writing and... since it's 'written' by insects I shall assume that, as writing, it is unintentional!"

Thanks to IUOMA member Carmela Rizzuto (California, USA) for sharing this initially on the IUOMA platform.

Hi thanks for your comment on The Face of Trashpo, the proper title for Mask Catt.

I wonder if you received snail mail from me? It was Foldilope #9 which is dedicated to DK and Trashpo.

I don't know if  it is 'human error'' ( my own fault) or the technology getting in the way but I missed your comment of December 28. By now I cannot remember to what it referred but it was nice of you. Thanks!

Oh, my eyes are watching me and so are yours! It has taken me a few days to even realise you left this link. My apologies but I don't have a watch and I run by a different time. It's usually very fast but sometimes I am a bit slow too; depends on routes of diversion. But when it comes to trashpo, nuevo or old-vo, I haven't even got onto that path yet. So I am very curious to find out where I am going. Thank you in advance, devil-lo.

love the scan of the P. Orridge collage! Im a big fan of a lot of their work....yes Gen was both very human and very cosmic.... thanks for sharing! I will surely send some things your way very soon...just about caught up with responses after a few days off that routine (partly due to a couple cassette collaborations I needed to finish up and mail away)

More soon,

Mah Nu
