Nudity in Mail Art - Censored Content

Posted on February 17, 2009 at 1:00am 3 Comments

A blog host can give an opinion on any subject and then censor opposing viewpoints just by deleting them. I think it's mean to do that, especially deleting a long discussion after participating in it for several days, but the host has that option. If she does so, the only way to express a different point of view is to start another blog.

The following discussion was removed by Carla from her blog… Continue

I am very new to IUOMA and don't really have a grip on the technology side of things yet but my main objective as of late is written work, though I was raised a painter and still do illustrate my poetry and conceptual writing, I am on a quest for a good group with which to deal with the poetry side of art, I just completed a somewhat poeticlly/abstractly written and styled short manifesto in order to intro my non artist friends here in maine to the form...still, I want to share with mail people who care about it and I crave hearing or reading others interpretations too! I am in short super interested in joining this group-only I am totally naive here, I think I'm missing a plug in or something, so I only have one dinky pic posted, no writing. IT was the first thing I emailed Ruud-how to share written work online, I try it on facebook but it's just not IUOMA! Anyhow please let me know if u can help. I'm sure I'm just a poetic dabbler as it was not my area of focus in training or career but man am I prolific and all of it is about art, art history, dada, mail art, ART. Thanks! Hilary

My old and severely missed friend Lon Spiegelman is heard saying on one of the tapes in the VEC archive:
"I ain't erasing shit, what cuts goes". This gem of audio wisdom has become an iconic statement in VEC audio terms!
On another tape Linda hollers "You are scaring Lee" (his son) to which Lon replies "I'm only beating on the bathroom floor!"This made it onto 'Mail art dada skank" by Tacky and the original VECettes our 70s hit. guffaws
I no longer give forth with banter on the novel group space. It seems to offend the sensitive amongst us.

Thanks for the friendship, this is a very excentric group.

Thank you for the explanation. It seemed to me to see words hard and I'm the one who had asked Megan to join us here, I felt a little responsible.
