Dia de los Muertos (Day of The Dead) 2005 Artistamp call. This call is one of my favorites because of the many small and creative issues produced in the past.

If you make artistamps (faux postage) and want to sign up for this call. . . surf, don't run to:
The DOD Artistamp Call web site and be prepared for some great mail in October. The deadline to register is October 10th and the mailing must go out by the 20th.

Here a sample of artistamps I've sent to the call for the last 3 years:
Matangi Island / Cebi Jubi stamps

You can see more examples of the 2004 DOD artistamps by browsing the Gallery at Carla Cryptic's site

123.5 Meme Tag [Apr. 8th, 2005|11:51 am]
A new book meme circulating around the sphere is going by the name “123.5,” and its rules are these:

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don’t search around and look for the “coolest” book you can find. Do what’s actually next to you.

“As Ged looked round the room his wizard's eye caught one stone of those that made the floor.”

** notes on this passage:
The stone is called the Terrenon and is described as a very ancient thing with a terrible spirit trapped inside.

I checked out this book (A Wizard of Earthsea by Ursula K. Le Guin) at the library for my son since I enjoyed reading it as a youth. I will probably read it again when he is finished as I did when he finished Lord of the Rings.

New Blogs [Feb. 12th, 2005|09:53 am]
Sadly I have neglected this blog lately. . .

Been putting a lot of energy and time into other projects including my new PhotoBlog and the kiyotei's den blog. Also been updating the website to clean out all the bad links and make sure the info is current.

That my story and I'm sticking to it!

Mail art Slideshow and Radio Show on Studio 360 [Oct. 9th, 2004|11:43 am]
There was recently a mailart call for Studio 360. The station is a co-production of Public Radio International and WNYC New York. A short description can be found here: Studio 360.

The slideshow is here: Slideshow

The radio broadcast (in Real Media format) is here:
Radio Show

The host, Kurt Andersen gushingly talked to a mailartist who sent in a piece of toast.
A good trick, but it's been done before . . .

The original toast senders, Daniel Farrell and Richard Kegler
documented this trick in the early 1990's:

Some of their other great projects are also documented on the site.

I can't get down on Kurt too much though because he obviously loves mail art and we need all the loving we can get!

Customized Errors [Sep. 21st, 2004|03:19 pm]
Very Interesting Error I Received While Surfing for Frogs.
I assume it was a custom error message to replace an ERROR 404... but then again, you never know!

R Tape loading error, 0:1

The page you are trying to display is currently unavailable.
There has probably been a disruption in the chuntey.
You mum might have just walked into the room, your tea may be ready or the azimuth screw may need tweaking.


Please try the following:

Click the Reload button to rewind the tape and try again.

If your mum just walked in, try locking the door and hiding that sticky pile of magazines under the bed.

Go and have your tea before it gets cold. The page will probably load just fine afterwards.

You may need to adjust your azimuth screw.
Relax, concentrate and become one with the tape deck. Now listen to a tape as it plays. Using a small screwdriver, tweak away until the sound becomes clear and bright.

Some pages require 128k mode to load them. Select Load Tape from the 128k menu and try again. Alternatively, try loading the page into 48k compatibility mode.
If you are a Commodore user. Try removing all leads from the device, pick it up and place against an open door.

Other suggestions are removing the keyboard and placing bread inside or sitting on it and defacating inside.

R Tape loading error, 0:1

Schenectady Mail [Sep. 18th, 2004|02:41 pm]
Received another fine postcard from Geof Huth of New York.
This is number Idontknowhowmany because he is so prolific.


He documents the occasional activities (that's an understatement) on his excellent mailart blog: QBDP

found it quite funny for some reason.

Just got back from a long weekend in Southern Utah at the Kodachrome Basin State Park. Lovely weather there, it rained BUT only for the first day. Took a shot of this red rock formation in the wee wee hours of the morning:


Bet the indigenous people loved to hang out here.

More photos available on the family website at: Kodachrome Basin including a few shots of Bryce Canyon and my little brother the trickster:


Bon Jour,
