Tucker Without a Shirt

There’s no real reason to make silly art with your friends’ visages on them. There is no reason for this. There was no reason for me to make a whole Nostrils EP just about Tucker. Well, maybe there was a reason considering that he was the only person that seemed interested in the whole project. Maybe it was strange that I honor my only fan with six songs making fun of him.

Three / fourths of the students were ones that I told to show up. Since the event was billed as “International Mail-Art” I had to hit the international angle pretty hard. Of course they’re tons of folks from around the world making mail art, but I’m not sure it’s one of the main reasons people create. More than anything, I think all sorts of weirdoes from small pockets across the globe are simply looking to connect through the “network.” Having your work land thousands of miles away is just par for the course. But yeah, I love getting work from out of the country. There isn’t too much romance in receiving something from a small town in …
