The Arses Of England

Posted on September 23, 2022 at 8:02pm 0 Comments

High on my list of arses today are Quazi Quateng , Liz Truss, in fact all of the Tory party.

Postcard from the 90's ( or was it late 80's?)  in a series commissioned by Boomerang cards who used to supply cinema foyers and student unions around the country with free cards.  Other cards in the "Beautiful Britain "  series were "The Arses Of…

Hi Michael,  I'd like to send you some mail (whether it is mail ART or not is up to you! ... ha!)  Don't see your mailing address on your profile.  Have sent you a request to be a friend also.  Thanks!

Hi Michael, I contacted the Special Collections department about it recently - but they are not open so I haven't 'seen' any of it yet. Another online avenue of exploration for me to follow up at the moment - I am stumbling along. I am very intrigued by the history and development of mail art. I didn't really know anything about it until I stumbled into it as a result of these lockdowns. It's one of those, 'curious things'.

The emails were empty appart from a link. Also they say to come from Yahoo but the wastedpapiers address said 'damimas.com' All very strange.
I do not want to write to your Yahoo address in case it is compromised.

Michael Good morning.
John has received two strange emails apparently from you . Their Yahoo adresses are wastedpapierscand wastedpapiersv
Did you send them? This is also strange as you and I have been recently communicating via Protonmail which is very safe. It is free with no ads. I do not use Yahoo anymore it drove me crazy with ads.
I hope your email has not been hacked

I love that orange dog!

I am also enjoying self isolation, we are taking it very seriously and started a week before the official date.

But I still have that I-cannot-cope-feeling. To think that some of my non-mail artists friends are bored. What is that?  Do you know?

This is for you, from Retailia with love.
