Started Feb 12 0 Replies

I wonder if there might be enough interest in Gyotaku, Japanese fish printing, to have a group or maybe a sub-group of Ruud Janssen's Rubber Stamping group?Y'r ol' Bud, FikeContinue

WHO KNEW MICHAEL VOO DOO?

"WHO KNEW MICHAEL VOO DOO?" is the question that appeared on the edge of an envelope that I received from Adam Roussopoulos (detail pictured to the left), and after finding out just a handful of facts, I'd like to know more about this enigmatic mail artist.Michael Voo Doo was a prolific mid-1980s to 90s  mail artist/collagist situated in Lake Park, FL.Within the bounds of the TOS (Terms of Service for the Ning), it would be wonderful to have recollections of Michael Voo Doo posted in this discussion, along with examples of his work -- which was described as macabre on one website.Factsheet Five 39 (1990 Dec) reported him in their mailart News list in the following manner:•Weird stuff continues to emanate from Michael Voodoo (PO Box 12461, Lake Park, FL 33403), now including snazzy business cards to go along with his disturbing and enigmatic collages.So who out there knew Michael Voo Doo? Please let us know!See More

I got Fiked, and I liked it. Thank you for the amazing envelope + letter, documentation, echinacea & psychedelia. I will post your piece to "Envelopes" group asap. The "World Peace through World Trade" 8-cent stamp made me cry for the Rust Belt. Sending snail mail batch around mid-month when the new Halloween stamps drop on the 11th Oct. ⍣ <-- Wittgenface.

Really enjoyed receiving your cool art--thanks so much!  It will be a little while till I can reply because I'm in the middle of a few projects so please don't think I forgot.  My husband Dave (also on this site) liked your work so much he posted it on IOUMA Facebook.  I too am sad about Steve Dalachinsky--today, September 29th, is actually his birthday...

Greetings, Fike. Yes, I've been with IUOMA for years — still prefer real mail, though.

Sorry but you can't join the Groucho Marx Group. This is nothing personal, as no-one can join the Group. That's what Groucho wanted, and that's what happens. There are lots of other Groups though....

I guess I do. Or at least, that's wot the clicky-button said on the previous page. from which [by clicking] 'I' got 'here'. [virtually].

Currently [re]reading all of William Gibson, at least the novels and a wonderful read he is! Taking a break with Thomas M. Disch's "334" over these past few nites, charging up the ol' memory B4 lites out each eve. Richard Brautigan awaits also.

Soon we start ripping out the floor of the computer 'den' at strangulensis Manor.

If you like to use old US postage on your mail art envelopes...

Posted on October 4, 2014 at 5:01pm 0 Comments

Karl Anderson's a good source who I've used for several orders over the past few years.

His current list and very detailed information on requirements for ordering from him are found at:

http://www.andersonstampandcoin.com/Pricelist.pdf

Currently, he is selling mint US 3-cent stamps from the 1940's-50's for very little over face value.

Y'r Ol' Bud,     Fike
