Wow. 3p postage. They now talk of raising the price of a first class stamp by 4p a year. Where did it all go wrong?

Those were the days eh? Now you really have to be careful of weight when you mail stuff abroad especially.

I hate having to line up in the post office, but do sometimes fear the effect this has on my creativity. I stop making things when they appear to be too big. Then I think Sod this, I'll make it anyway, and take ages to mail it

1. Never give anything away for nothing.
2. Never give more than you have to give (always catch the buyer hungry and always make him wait).
3. Always take everything back if you possibly can.

(William Burroughs (b.1914), U.S. author. The Naked Lunch, introduction (1959). The basic principles of dealing heroin.)

Great example on the similarity between art and drugs.
