This message is the first of what will be regular announcements
regarding "new" "content" at Detritus.net, the website dedicated
to recycled culture, and recent or upcoming events involving Detrivores
and other relevant artists. These updates will happen no more than once a
week and hopefully no less than once a month.

Note: You may be receiving this first announcement without asking for it.
We here at Detritus.net are as opposed to spam as anyone. Please don't get
snappy until you read this paragraph. If you were sent this, it's because
you 1) signed up to be on this "announce" list, or 2) you're a member of 1
or both of 2 very relevant lists, Snuggles or Plunderphonia, or 3) you
otherwise expressed interest in Detritus.net. Those of you who fall into
the second category will NOT receive further announcements, unless you
personally sign up. The rest of you may unsubscribe, if you wish, by
following the instructions at the end of this message.

Now, to the actual news:


Several new reasons to come back to the site are now on-line.
There's a little for everyone, and that's only the tip of the coming

1. Mystery Tape MP3s: Kissing Jesus in the Dark
 We have mp3 files of several of John Oswald's Mystery Tapes that we will
be offering online in the coming months, thanx to the generosity of Lloyd
Dunn and Jon Leidecker. This first one dates back from 1983 and includes
the amazing pause-edit masterpiece "Funky X".

2. Why Do We Appropriate? by Bob Boster
 A thoughtful essay we've finally managed to put on the site after much

3. A New Detritus Project: The Anti-Ad Server
 Tired of the commercialized web? We are, and we've built a new tool you
can use to fight back. The Anti-Ad Server is a repository of parody
banner ads contributed by various designers. By linking to the site with
the right html code, you can place random fake banners on your pages that
randomly link to a variety of anti-commercial, culture-jamming sites.
This project is just getting started, so we need more material.
If you're a designer and would like to contribute some anti-ads, write to

4. Reorganized Rhizome
 Rhizome, our bibliography of relevant artists, art, and references, is
now divided up into separate pages for its several different categories.
We're also always adding new entries so take another look now and then.
Pay particular attention to the brand new Legal section.

"Like mice placed in a jar of oxygenated
 fluid, capital's shift to non-material
 symbolic systems of exchange locks it in
 a series of spasms as it learns to stop
  breathing air and begins to breathe bits."
