Mailartpo for Troy

Today I have been primarily putting together the mailartpackage I’m going to send TroyLLoyd. Most likely I’ll wait till I know he’s home for good before I mail it him.

Magikal sigil

It all seemed to go so well (for HP Lovecraft)

It all seemed to go so well. Alabaster canes lined the roads and streets like banisters or crucified heretics. Light from the black sun shone down with infinite malevolence. The sea ran red with blood and the dead rose from their silent slumber. Guts and gore spurted from kitchen sinks. Cracks in the ground opened and spewed forth glowing magma. Then suddenly a beautiful flower bloomed from in-between the eyes of a decaying corpse. The awakened Cthulu, who had just risen from the pond in the local park, shrieked his displeasure. He was so aggrieved he almost didn’t eat the little old lady that had been out walking her dog. It takes a lot to almost put an elder god off his breakfast.


This didn’t stop the apocalypse of course but it ruined the mood a bit. The souls of the living were consumed and the algae-topped city of R'lyeh rose from the briny waves.

K=O=L=L=L=A=P=S problem

As regular readers of visoundtextpoem will know, I recently e-mailed Jaap Blonk to ask whether he would like to have some of his sound poems on my show. Now, I've had some problems with my e-mail, not being able to send stuff and I was sent two emails by a mate and didn't receive them ( ie, he said he's sent me them, and it wasn't in my inbox) . Now heres the thorny problem. I've emailed Jaap twice but havn't received any reply . Now here is a question that needs to be solved; Is he not replying to me because he's busy or has he replyed and I've not received it? do I e-mail him again or would this appear as if I'm pestering him? He's someone whose work I have a lot of respect for and I don't want to piss him off. So what do I do? can any suggestions be put in the comments for this post?
