Mail Art Postcard. No. 4777…

But first…
Dulltown UK/Europe: Today’s confused film stars are: Balle Herry and Zenee Rellweger.

Friday, Saturday – what a difference a day can make!

Yes, yet another of my Mail Art postcards – a simple collage on bright card using clippings from that tawdry UK TV listings magazine What’s On TV.
The fluorescent yellow is nice, isn’t it?
Now then dear reader, which of these pictures is the more ridiculous? For me though, they do seem to have a lot in common: classy extravagant outfits, serious and unsmiling characters, (but do I detect just a hint of a smile on the face of the big-eyed white dog, and possibly the Archbishop?), plush surroundings, no expense spared, only one person in each picture is wearing a hat, slow moving and with lots of tense waiting – even the colours are not dissimilar, plenty of gold (beige) and shimmering white.
Well, dear reader, I expect you can guess what my views on the British monarchy are, so I don’t need to embark on an all-out rant on the subject at the moment. I’ll just say, as I sit here, on these funny little islands just off the coast of Europe, that now, in the 21st century, I find all this royal stuff, in the eyes of the world, a bit of a toe-curling embarrassment.
Damn! I wish I’d managed to get those photos properly centred on the sodding card though!…

    I won’t post here what I remember my dad saying every time he saw one of them on the telly…suffice to say that as a youngster I thought he was a bit extreme but as an old fella I find myself in complete agreement with him!
