First Missing In Action

Well it finally happened, I received word from Weiss today that he never received 'Miss March / Miss November 02', probably the keystone to that whole series of correspondences. We are hoping it will turn up but I'm very doubtful at this point. I told him that at the end of this set I'd mail him a color copy of the originals just so he could have it. So I'm a little depressed... that was my favorite correspondence in the entire series. It's also the first time ever that a piece has been lost (stolen) while in transit and I've been mailing stuff for about 4 years now. First with Newman, then with Barker and now this year with the correspondence list. I've had works of art stolen before so I'm not stunned, but this just goes to show why all of these correspondences need to be documented and cataloged before they are entered into the system. So here it is for all to see.



MISS MARCH / MISS NOVEMBER 02

Tonight I will scan and catalog the first mass mailer works 'Rabid'. They will be going out tomm. I'll also continue production on the 'Valentine' mass mailers.

Also yesterday I traded an old scanner for a large box of 70's Playboy magazines. These are going to make for great correspondence materials. I'll also be using them in some fashion with the '100 Small Works: Hot, Young and Eager on 25¢ a Day' series.

p.s. DEATH TO COMCAST CABLE..... you evil bastards. I still have no internet.
