Mail Art Postcard No. 4597…

But first…
Dulltown, UK: Today’s financial forecast is for banknotes to purr when you stroke them and for loose coins to become warm in the trouser pocket.

‘So, Mr World…’
‘How was your weekend?’
‘Well it all went south with a bit of an upset on Friday, but by Sunday I was feeling back to my normal self again…’
‘Fluffy and cosy?’
‘Yes, yes… big-eyed, cute and furry…’
‘Jolly good!’

Yes, it’s another of my mail art postcards, a simple collage on bright card using clippings from that awful British TV listings magazine What’s On TV.
I love these little photos they put at the start of the magazine showing a glimpse of what there is to look forward to on each day of the week ahead. My word, those kittens don’t look too happy about the Führer popping up on Friday night do they?
Gosh, but isn’t World War II popular on the TV these days? They’ve even colour-tinted the old black and white footage to make it more… er, real…
Adolph is on almost daily, it must be all that charisma; he is lasting very well, constantly on our screens; and those stylish and nicely tailored uniforms he wears – he’s always so well turned out is A.H! It is important, I think, for a world leader to look smart and presentable, don’t you dear reader?
Mind you, I reckon he’d have done better if he’d lost the silly little tash early on, he hadn’t really the right shaped head for it… Gosh, don’t those kittens look fed up?…

    Why is WWII/Hitler being emphasized on television? Gee, perhaps it’s because the programming is cheap? No. Because there’s a whole generation of humans that are confused by politicians (and the media) negatively equating a certain politician to Hitler. The reference, however, doesn’t strike the fear in hearts and minds of these younger individuals that it was meant to. There is a whole generation that doubts that the holocaust actually happened, yet fears “fascism” because they’ve been told to, not because they understand what fascism means. If they can learn to hate and fear Hitler, they can learn to hate and fear anyone that the media ascribes to be Hitler-like – even if false. On television people tolerate the most heinous violence – they wait to see it on the nightly news. Television tells us that everything you see on television is true – but, whenever possible will remind us that unfiltered “news” on the internet is most likely false(I am, in fact a French model) – so don’t believe anything you learn on the internet. So, while it was convenient for a while for this generation to believe that the holocaust didn’t happen (part of a much larger propaganda campaign that served a different purpose), it appears to conflict with the current globalist agenda. Only believe television. On the internet, what are people permitted to react to? Kittens (and puppies.) Very good Dave!

      Gosh Mademoiselle Mode (or is it Madame?) you regularly credit me with far more meaning in my things than I intended, but I think AH is on the TV a lot because, as you say, it’s cheap footage, even after the B&W is coloured in with crayons and the sound effects of the bombs and gunfire are dubbed on.
      But, we like kittens!… We like kittens!…
