dear yasir,

i remember the contest, unfortunately the green leather jacket doesn't
exist anymore and neither does a picture of me wearing it.  these days i
am wearing suits, maybe i can offer this clip as a consolation price:

i cc to peter fend, maybe he'll chip in if he's not busy getting high on
methane.  he just had a show in some dump on essex street and every dork
in the art critical establishment had to review it...

looks like you're doing fine.  oxford?  i thought you're in pakistan.

best regards,
