LURIE'S LAST WILL
E-MAIL on MAY 11, 1999 | Subject: BORIS IS A FASCINATING STORYBOOK, on life in the Concentration Camps. He spent his youth as a prisoner of the Nazi´s. He was so young and innocent he was chosen to sweep the guards office and consequently was able to save his fathers life with a simple erasure. A wised up Italian Socialist leader told them how to survive in the camps without being a kapo.
E-MAIL on DECEMBER 23, 2000 | Suject: AS AN AFFICIONADO of the NO!art genre I should of ourse recognize your name instantly; but being English speaking almost exclusively, when I see your name my instant reaction is "this is a spammer". Since I pick out the word DIET and think it is an ad for making me again into the slender changeling I once was. So once again I say NO! especially to the "Grim Reaper" and a Nun's Snot in Dublin Town. I wish you a creative year. Martin Levitt

E-MAIL on MARCH 11, 2004 | Subject: THANK YOU FOR THE ► NEWSLETTER, not too informative as yet, but strikingly handsome. As I always said, it is better to be handsome than gifted or intelligent. As you can see I belong to the Young Werther generation. Also, artistically I pursue the goals of Romain Rollands. "Jean Christophe". ART HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY SCRAWNY MISTRESS AND TORMENTOR. Keep up the good work! The logo you developed is just smashing.
E-MAIL ON MARCH 5, 2005 | Subject: THE ANCIENT BORIS LURIE has neverr seen the NO!art-site. He has no computer knowledge or a gestalt with electronics. He is in an outside toilet sitting on a cold board crumpling a piece of newspaper in his hand. I have told him that the current NO!art-site is right on target with his reportage of art in 2005. Keep up the good work. Your presentation is splendid. Martin Levitt
E-MAIL ON JUNE 4, 2005 | Subject: WORKING WITH BORIS! Working with anyone who survived the death camps is a tricky business. They are always looking for some danger and making maneuvers to srew you up. I have been a friend and even did work for Boris. It was for cash on the barrel head. I am willing to entertain Boris, feed Boris, help Boris; butbusiness deals are only done with me in charge. After the war I found the survivors of concentration camps had very abrasive and difficult personalities: There is no one who could go through that type of regime and life and come away unscaathed. It didn't matter if you were French or Russian or Scandinavian; you were never normal again.You were a survivor! Kicked and beaten when you were a innocent puppy. Essentially Boris is generous and affectionate human who lives with a huge number of hideous, emotional scars.
E-MAIL ON JANUARY 24, 2007 | Subject: ARTWORKS. If you give me an adress I will send a disk with picture - drawings and paintings. As farI know through the folio I have on AOL is readily available.
