Digital “Fluxus Reader” now available for free online

Exciting news from Ken Friedman! I’ve copied the entire email here so the word will spread! The “Fluxus Reader” is now available to all who wish to receive it. For free. Yes, you heard me. Free. Thanks Ken. Dear Colleague, The Fluxus Reader has been out of print for many years now. In the run-up to 2012, I’ve been getting requests for copies — I don’t have any, and I don’t know anyone who does. It’s clearly been a desirable […]

ShortStat Information of the Day

Currently, only 64% of the Assemblagist readers are English speaking Internet folks. How utterly charming is that? Apparently Russians read the Assemblagist since 16% of my readers come from that region of the world. Could be the cause is a proliferation of gaming sites mistakenly direct to me with some sort of URL hoochie coo? While such information details the title of this post, please do not concern yourself any further about the matter. Except to sing “U R L […]

A Blog in Flux

Switching to the newest incarnation of Elegant Themes “Coldstone” is going to take me a bit longer than I’d anticipated. Updated WordPress, Elegant Themes and now it seems I need to update my BRAIN. Fortunately, the work progresses nicely. I have figured out the “Featured Image” and now see the ET buttons on the top of the VISUAL icon set. Elegant Themes moved forward with design I stayed behind Now I see the light And updated Coldstone and the world […]

Junior High Slumber Parties, ooooh!

Taken from an email to Amanda: Went to grade school with a boy named Titsworth. And a girl named, I swear to God, Frankie Lookey*. She had flaming red curly hair. I have a wonderful story for you about her: Her brother lived in the attic, pull down stairs so it was little more than a crawl space… he was high school age, we were in 7th grade. 1967 or ’68. Once, when I spent the night at her house […]

Sent in Proposal for “People in Space”

I can’t reveal the details yet. Will wait for response from Berwick Institute before continuing with dialog for “People in Space” proposal. The possibilities! Oh the possibilities! A 2010 Fluxus Happening in Singapore. Fluxus in Singapore. How absolutely terrific a prospect that is. The People in Space effort seems to oddly parallel or, at the very least compliment, the FluxFace in Space idea first posited by Cecil Touchon. The What Are We Waiting For? which I have created and sent […]

An email to Mary Bennett

The heat causes lunacy. Sunshine and clouds mixed. Very hot. Heat index near 110F. High near 100F. Winds WSW at 10 to 20 mph. Truly… and to prove my insanity, let me copy/paste my Sunday morning email message to dear Mary in Arkansas: Everyone needs to make a flux case. Old fishing tackle boxes make great flux cases, especially when combined with little plastic lure cases. We ventured out in heat yesterday to go to movie in Gville (30 min […]
