MinXus Mail Bag: Twisted tales from the sheep ranch by Vizma Bruns (Waitpinga, South Australia)

Mail-art by Vizma Bruns (Waitpinga, South Australia) 

We know that at another venue, Tenderfoots are breathlessly following the photographic chronicle of Empress Marie Antonette’s adventures on Vizama Bruns’ Australian sheep ranch (and environs). So of course you are aware that some wild and woolly art is also made on the ranch. As a sort of supporting documentary, we present here mail-art MinXus USA received from Vizma this past holiday season.

Miss Vizma was very kind to have completed and returned the “PMM Head Trauma Assessment Inventory.” This was a questionnaire sent out to numerous members of DKult, and its purpose would require a detailed explanation. Even removed from context, we believe you can see Vizma Brun did a smashing job. Perhaps equalling something one might have received from the legendary David Zack.

Much to like here, especially the erasures. And the second page:

The PMM Inventories are being collected for use elsewhere. Many thanks for returning yours, Vizma. She also included some of her legendary Drunkpo:

Here is the envelope:

And the reverse:

Vizma - ranch - 7

We hope this materials enhance the chronicles of Empress Marie’s adventures. We are very pleased to be able to offer a glimpse of the state of Australian mail-art.

Again, many thanks, Vizma!

    Hahaha… that survey! So absolutely funny. Both the questions and the answers. I’m very proud of my Viz, what a great sense of humor.
    With this kind of mail art, sometimes, only sometimes and for a few minutes I wish I was a DKULTist. Only for a few minutes.

    Empress, mighty nice of you to stop by – fresh from your stunning debut in American poetry – to provide commentary on your recent Australian adventure.

    I like these stories but I like the Empress’s stories better when I was getting her out of pickles all the time.

    Have you seen, Dw, Tom Clark wrote an amazing poem about the Ether. The fumes. Isn’t that amazing?

    You get me out of pickles but meanwhile 28 comments in the trash. Dw, take me out of there now!

    How long has this been here? News of your ether collab has circled the earth twice. People are asking: “Yes, but what have they done recently?”

    Say no to Trashpo Empress

    Do you want to receive a defective D-Koder ring linked to the severed finger in the Wendy’s chili incident?

    Do you want to receive a shred of clothing alleged to come from DK’s shirt she wore the night she entertained Uncle Ramone & Mister Stubbs the Dancing Pig with a Twister competition?

    Do you want to wear a RayJo bunny stamp on your head that says “DKult is the Shit”?

    Trashpo is the opposite of MinXus.

    Say no to Trashpo

    As for the deletions, we’re capable of throwing some cakes too.

    It’s was no one’s finest moment.

    Empress I sorted out the electronic dumpster best I could. Everything should be back except some junk that just isn’t relevant.
