Dear Mr. blurr,
Through a series of interesting connections, I discovered your site and all started on a boring day at work, daydreaming about trains, when I thought about those drawings on freight cars. I thought, "who is Bozo Texino?" and decided it was worth punching into the machine. Lo and behold, a movie of the same title as my thought. So I bought it, loved it, and also recognized your drawings. It is all very interesting to me, but even more so to find you are a widely unknown dadaist who has created some amazing stamps and other things. Funny, when you were translating the Italian for "alternative postage stamps" I visualized the stamps on Captain Beefheart's Strictly Personal album.
Now I see you are a Beefheart fan too. What else? Kurt Vonnegut!
I recently acquired another film on DVD, something I saw on TV about 35 years ago called "From Time to Timbuktu" which I had dreamed of for a long time and never could get a copy of until this features several Vonnegut stories. It starts out with Stony Stevenson who wins an advertising jingle contest and the prize is a trip to the Chronosynclastic Infindibulum. He has several adventures from various Vonnegut stories. It is just great, which is probably why they never showed it again or released it as a video...but I found somebody who made DVDs from old video tape off the TV. I'll send you a copy.
This really is one of the oddest inhabited planets I've ever seen!

Yes, thank you. You listed a number of cultural inspirations and influences, among many, I can blame for my fragmented personality flaws. Dull Odd buZ
