RECVD MAILART DSF 11-12-20 AND POSTED

"This is water long gone under the bridge, but I was pranked by these too. They are fake DSF Cult. First, Michael Kelly (aka) DSF is a tremendous correspondent, brilliant artist. None of this should impact DSF as a respected Eternal…"

"One's own natural fragmentation can become really exhausting every 3 or 4 or 7 years. I appreciate the thought-provoking comments, Mel Anie and DVS, thanks."

"Nancy, this one is a minimalist you! It's so busily tranquil.  DVS, if we're not worrying about genre, I'd love to cross some sundried  fragments to a JL foundation, please."

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
