"Prisoner of T.O.X.I.S." by Diane Keys (Elgin, Illinois, USA)

Mail-art by IUOMA member Diane Keys (Elgin, Illinois, USA)

October 19, 2014 - In September my uneventful (and much-needed) hiatus from online activity and the network prompted the Queen of Trash to unleash a DKult dragnet, as she seems to have been convinced of a new and sinister T.O.X.I.S. conspiracy. While concerns were unfounded, it produced some D-Klassic mail-art:

DK - 10.18.2014 - 2

The irony is that I have made many public allegations about other mail-artists being held hostage and re-programmed in a fabled "Mexican clinic" for Manchurian candidate-like participation in obscure plots. Depending on which versions of the stories you encounter, The Clinic is run by T.O.X.I.S., Neoists or both.

In addition to these two remarkable, approximately 8.5 x 11 inch panels above, the envelope contained a generous sampling of authentic trash from Elgin, the dream of many a Kulter:

And even more presented to you here as a spontaneous scannerbed composition:

DK - 10.18.2014 - 4

All this came in a wonderfully decorated envelope:

DK - 10.18.2014 - 5

The reverse:

DK - 10.18.2014 - 6

Many thanks to DK for the concern. Will the complete truth of what happened during those weeks in September 2014 eventually be revealed? Perhaps. Perhaps there is little to report that would not be mundane or boring. Or perhaps, for now: “You want the truth? You can’t handle the truth” because “The truth is ‘out there.'”

New DKULTNY promo-prop (promotional propaganda): “DKult – It’s the new scientology.”

Hi Neil! I'm really glad you're back. I've been holding back some work you sent me - I don't know how long it has been.

Ya know, Bob Dobbs is far from being forgotten. There's a guy on Facebook claiming to be Bob, and he posts Bob pics all day and all night. Don't know how he does it. He also posts podcast links for the Church of the Subgenius. If you don't get those, I can give you the link. They're still doing it. (or maybe I did? Can't remember.)

tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENce who is now an IUOMA member is an official saint in the church. Check him out.

Rebecca, I try to do the fanzine quarterly. It's time. Spy notebooks? Code from Carina? Sounds like you've had some programming too.
