Happy Year o' the Pig and all that. But wait...there's more. I'm finishing off my gargantuan scanning project. And now I have all these old magazines that I'm wondering what to do with. I've considered selling them on Etsy but it seems like a fool's errand since the market seems saturated with this crap but in the past I've sent stuff out to mail artists in bulk form. Some of you have already received packages from this collection (mostly women's magazines from the 40s including many, many issues of American Home, Ladies Home Journal etc) and can testify to how life changing they've been. (Insert testimonials here). I'm now once again asking if those in the mail art community are interested in receiving these odds and ends (lightly filtered for things of interest). As before I would like to be reimbursed for the postage but that's the only catch. My flickr site (linked above) will give you an idea of what kind of stuff is here but be forewarned a lot of it is just old and dull. So....with that caveat let me know. I suppose I should add that I would prefer that you not sell it yourself but that's outta my hands, isn't it?

Okay, Ladies...we are all square. Katerina and Toni's monies received. Thank you! I hope everyone finds something of interest or use in these decaying talismans. I have more if anyone's interested. The cost for mailing is usually between $15 and $20.

OMG David, I would LOVE another package of stuff from you! And I will happily send you postage -- in advance if you like. I can pay you on Paypal if you're hooked up with them. Otherwise, I do still have a checkbook! Thank you in advance!!!!!

Okay Katerina, I'll mix you up a good batch. Nancy, it's uncanny how sane I'm starting to look in that pic. 1976. I was up against Carter and Ford.

Back by popular demand, here is Dave's presidential run poster. Is he crazy cute or what! :
