LIVE-ED alters fike image card based on DKA artistamp image of fike.

Posted on October 8, 2019 at 5:33pm 1 Comment

First [in my very porous memory] fikeCard altered by LIVE_ED Giecek

I have a blog???!

Posted on July 14, 2018 at 12:34pm 0 Comments

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:

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