Dear Blogger
how to Avoid me getting email that start with
!@#$%&*BLOGGER*&%$#@!
let
ERSATZ LASCAUX
into the comment section
ALWAYS

And anyone else out there who hasn't left a comment ever or for a long time do it now.  Leave so many comments that I won't have time to read them and reply.  Make me skip lunch and dinner to catch up. That goes for Arthur and the one (and maybe only) Anonymous too. Maybe the comment section is just a little rusty from not being used enough.  I'm sure it can't be because the comment section of Another Artifact doesn't want to know what Ersatz Lascaux has to say. Another Artifact only exists to read what Ersatz Lascaux has to say next.  That is why at Another Artifact we go to


every day to see what's new.  So leave a comment here and then go leave a comment there.  It won't change the world.  It might not even change your day but you will have done me a great favor.  I will always be grateful.  Thank you!  Vote for me.


blogger please don't make me amend this post to include Ersatz Lascaux's comment

"Blue Ribbon Blue"
8 X 10 Polaroid Pinhole Photo

due to circumstances beyond my control
(please do pardon me)
offering a look back to 2014

I was using up a lot of out of date 8 X 10 Polaroid film
with Sheri's help of course

taking photographs at $45.00 a shot with no guarantees
that's invigorating






This just in from Ersatz Lascaux
tripped up by Blogger again!


WORLD.

"ThePoliticalWritings"
(page 3 of a new book)
title page






My last two books had no words in them other than the titles and the last page of "1964" said The End.  This left me with the desire to make a book with writing and I thought it would be nice if you could actually read it unlike some of my work with words.  "ThePoliticalWritings" is inspired by the very noisy period of time we are living through and my lack of trust in a broken system.  Don't expect anything eye-opening or new.  
When you ask 100 people a question and 49 say yes and 51 say no I don't think anything was resolved.  Those sort of odds don't seem to deserve the phrase "The people have spoken!" when I know I can get a more definitive result from merely flipping a coin 100 times.
