Snail Mail – “Valentine”

It’s been a minute since Snail Mail released Lush, one of the best debuts from an artist in recent memory. After touring hard behind that album, Lindsey Jordan stepped out of the spotlight. The album’s official biography (written by friend and fellow musician Katie Crutchfield of Waxahatchee) notes that Jordan went to a rehab facility in Arizona, which is where she started to sketch out the shape of her follow-up despite not having access to her instruments. Earlier this year, Jordan went to Dur...

Dandelion Post: Spread the love with aerogramme snail mail "seeds"

My ears always perk up when I hear mail-art purveyor extraordinaire Lea Redmond of Leafcutter Designs has a new project. "Dandelion Post" is her latest and it doesn't disappoint:  Dandelion Post is a set of nesting stationery that reaches more and more people as it radiates through the postal system and flutters around town. — Read the rest

Theatre-By-Snail-Mail

The audiences interact with characters one-on-one through the letters and can possibly alter the arc of the pieces through their correspondences. For a few of the play tracks, audiences can select particular characters to follow and even determine outcomes based on their response letters. “It’s a bespoke adventure—a tailor-made adventure specifically designed for you and your experience.” – American Theatre

Children are becoming snail mail pen pals with Fairyland "elves" in this time of social distancing

You might remember that when I'm not blogging for Boing Boing, I can usually be found at my other gig — Children's Fairyland. Of course, the Oakland, California kiddie theme park is closed now and will be until it's safe to reopen. But, we do have a skeleton crew of essential "elves" who are on site to care for the donkeys, miniature horses, and other animals. While there, they also water our plants and check our mail. That's when we got the idea to offer the children in our community a chance t...

The 100 Best Albums Of The 2010s

A decade is an arbitrary measurement. They seem confined, these neat little symmetrical 10-year runs, but it's only in hindsight that we define them, that their signifiers and trends and shorthand become codified. In reality, there are bleeds, the timbre and events of one chunk of time sliding over the border into another. If you're … More »

Postcards sent from Galapagos Island

The Galapagos Islands take “snail mail” to a whole new level. In 1989, Peter and Varna Chadwick were on vacation in the Ecuadorian islands when they sent postcards to themselves at their home in Manchester, England, as a souvenir. The postcards didn’t arrive; however, last month, the home’s new owner, Kevin Thewlis, received them. He tracked down the Chadwicks, who now live in Stockton-on-Tees, to reunite them with their long-lost postcards. Photo: Peter Chadwick The cards had been sent vi...
