Sounds like a PBS special.

xx Jones sent me this lovely still-life of the Fleur du Mars. A martian can be seen in the lower right quadrant. (They are far more bulbous than we had previously imagined). Thank you xx.

A snap from Nancy's recent visit to the Moab of her mind. It occurs to me that I have oriented it wrong. Sigh...I'm sorry, Nancy. What do you think of my latest font: Speeding Bullet from Comiccraft. (These product placements help lower your costs and mine). Thank you, Nancy.

In a similar color scheme La Marchesa de Albuquerque, a literal stone's throw away from where I type, sent me this petroglyphic boar or pig...Cochino....Very cool. The question is: Are there two or is the approximation of one running? Well, that's one question anyway. Thank you, Marchesa and welcome back to Mail Art after your hiatus.

Nadine's wide-eyed New Year's Baby. He's an old soul. Nadine, like Diane Keys, is a trash anthropologist by nature. Along with the New Year Baby she sent me this door hanger she found hanging around.

As a former resident of the state I think I can say without fear of contradiction from Nadine that this is about as pure a reflection of the Southern California sensibility as one can find anywhere. What's new, aside from the sheer beauty of the phrase, "Squat Goddess", is the militarization. The Boot Camp, The Operations, not to mention going toe to toe with your similarly inclined neighbors. The weaponized body. I must say that Tim and Carly do not appear menacing in their adorable inset but I'm not sure I'd want to live next door to them. I think I could mano a mana with Carly after she had eaten a heavy meal. Here's some copy from the other side. An endorsement, in fact, from Vani:

"I missed seeing the muscles and tone I used to see in the mirror. I wanted my old body back, but I was skeptical that I could really see much change in 6 weeks.

Well, I was wrong.

My 'guns' are back, (sic) I can see the definition in my quads again and my ab muscles are well on their way to being restored to their former glory!"

I can see clearly now the flab has gone, I can see the definition in my quads again. Thank you, Nadine.

A cool collage from Raphael 'L. The boy seems chastened as he listens to the Gospel of the Mute Museum, loosely based on Advice and Consent. Thank you, Raphael 'L.

And now a special treat! The debut of Chocolate Now, my almost 3rd video.

thanks Dk. Couldn't come up with that one.

'gdf cosmic' was a no brainer.

Art martyrs, those kids. Love them.

Same experience with D's first link too Nancy, except it took me to a YouTube video i made for erni bar a couple of years ago.

What is TMI?

No way! David please say that it is a honorary Royal Plaque (I spy King Arthur at its base)

on the wall of the famous Stafford Exclusive Club, yes?

Comment by Nancy Bell Scott on January 27, 2014 at 4:07pm

By the way, it appears we're on a tombstone here. Thankfully there's no date.

I'll just flat out give her a bigger one, and I ain't rich.

What deprived childhoods, forcing cookies when all they want is eggs and other healthy stuff. "It's hard as a rock, Mom!" They are mail-art stars! We'd expect no less from DKult children of Elgin. Great movie!! 

Comment by David Stafford on January 26, 2014 at 10:49pm

Okay, I'm going to start running these in the Elgin Examiner for a few weeks to build up curiosity. Then we'll do a full page spread with an appeal for funds to buy you a bigger tub. I've seen some nice ones at the K-Mark.

Bite Me for David Stafford

btw, the purple bucket in the background is my art studio

Comment by Nancy Bell Scott on January 26, 2014 at 8:17pm

The first comment looks extra wacked-out now. Especially the part about "your '70s hairdo," which of course was an attempt to throw people off the (wrong) track.
