Harvester Arts Show July 2016!!!

I have talked to a lot of people in the arts community in Wichita, KS and they tend to say the same thing…Wichita art scene is getting cooler and there is more to do than there is time to do it. Let this be a part of your Wichita experience. Come experience the Men’s Scrapbooking Club show, a sampling of absurdist sketch comedy and experimental performance art.

Rejected Oranges Ad Campaign

  

  I recently created a modishly swank Ad to raise awareness about oranges, similar to the “Got Milk” campaign that made people start drinking milk again virtually overnight. I sent it out to a number of orange groves and growers associations, without a single request for compensation mind you. Here’s an example email:

 

 

Florida Citrus Mutual  

 

Dear Sirs or Ma’ams,

  

 Hello, my name is Tim. I am from Wichita, KS. I love oranges but I feel like not enough people eat them. I have created a poster that can be used in an ad campaign that I think is perfect for promoting oranges much like the “Got Milk” ads worked for dairy farmers. If you are interested, please send me an email.

 

 

 

Here’s the poster:

 

 

 

 

I didn’t get a single response.

 

 

Wanna help me promote this campaign? Post this on Facebook, and let’s raise some goddamn awareness about oranges.

Google vs. Microsoft

This is the first letter I sent to Google:

Google letter

So then they responded to my letter requesting an email address to my actual email address:

From: Katie Malkin <kmalkin@google.com>

To: Tim Rogers <teneightfour@gmail.com>

Hello Tim,

We received a letter from you in which you requested an email address for “Tim Rogers 473 W 9th”. Unfortunately this email address is already taken, however, the following options are available:
-Tim Rodgers 473 W 8th
-Jim Rogers 437 W 9th
-Tom Roger 347 W 9th
Would any of these email addresses be acceptable?
Also, to address your reservations about “email”. We do not issue tracking numbers to emails from GMail so you will be unable to determine their progress in this manner. There are no hidden surcharges for sending emails on a Sunday, but there may be in the future as that is a great idea.
Hope to hear from you soon regarding your choice of email address.
Thanks,
Katie Malkin

…And I replied exactly this way:

From: Tim Rogers <teneightfour@gmail.com>

To: Katie Malkin <kmalkin@google.com>

Ok, I think I would like as an email:

-Tom Roger 347 W 9th
But I’m confused. Without an email address, why did you send it to teneightfour@gmail.com and how did you know that I would get that email even though I don’t have an email address? Since your previous email was in no way computer generated, I have a hunch that answering this email should be a cinch.
I’m enjoying our correspondence, let’s talk more often.
Sincerely,

Google

And then she replied:

From: Katie Malkin <kmalkin@google.com>

To: Tim Rogers <teneightfour@gmail.com>

Hi Tim!

We only hire the best searchers at Google. Our employees are pros at easter egg, scavenger, and photohunts. I used my pro search skills to find a fascinating article about underground statues you wrote on examiner.com. At the end of the article you invited your readers to send you an email at teneightfour@hotmail.com and give suggestions for events and art articles.
I actually emailed your teneightfour@hotmail.com email address but it appears that you have two email addresses, teneightfour@hotmail.com and teneightfour@gmail.com! You should tell your tech savvy bridge club friends, they would be so impressed!!
Have a wonderful week!

-Katie

 

Oddly, A couple months later I get a packet in the mail from Google. It includes a response letter, a folder, decals, and an American Apparel tuxedo T-shirt.

Google Response Letter

 

And Then There was the Email I sent to Microsoft:

CONTACT INFORMATION

PRODUCT

QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS

Message: I am a playwright and have so many files that I wrote on an old computer in Microsoft Works. Now I have a computer that runs Windows 7 that only came with a limited trial version of Microsoft Word, so I run openoffice, which doesn’t read .wps files. I opened and added to a file in Office Starter and did not realize it only opens in read-only (what?) and lost about two hours of work. I have spent more time than i care to admit dealing with the problem that is the .wps file format, and struggle with it to this day.

 

And their Response:
