MinXus Mail Bag: “I am paying for this microphone, Mr. Green” says Sinclair Scripa (Ludlow, Vermont, USA)

Mail art by Sinclair Scripa (Ludlow, Vermont, USA)

Not since the days when folks such as Blaster Al and David Zack mailed out fake solicitations for disabled children’s scholarship funds in order to raise beer money do we actually know of anyone who has donated real money to a mail art charity scam – until now. Tenderfoot Sinclair Scripa – aka Tanya – a winner of the Who Has The Best Hair Contest no less – has made a contribution to KDJ’s liver transplant fund, which of course is a fiction. We are confident “Tanya” knows this and the dollar is really being donated for artistic purposes. And Tanya freed herself from more worldly burdens:

Tanya is making a reference here to the “Send Ca$h” internet scam currently being run by former Neoist Stewart Home. Again, the scam being run by Stewart Home, we are confident, is performance art, as is Tanya’s response displayed upon our humble blog.

We are not entirely sure that this mailing does not constitute some sort of paid advertising upon our humble blog. So we leave it to you, dear Tenderfoots, to compose disclaimers in your fertile minds. Sinclair Scripa-Tanya included a charming, crumpled, slightly non-linear rant involving Moan Lisa and some dolls:

Some wonderful art is found on the reverse side:

Here is another lovely piece by Sinclair Scripa:

We removed a rubber whoopee cushion that was attached because we felt it did not meet our standards of decorum.

Note: Due to complaints received, a scan of the whoopee cushion included in the mailing is now added:

The painted envelope is excellent as well:

Sinclair Scripa-Tanya uses the envelope as a place to celebrate the great (sadly deceased) Russian mail artist Pig DaDa.

Many thanks to Tanya!
