L to R: Rupert Wondolowski and Blaster Al Ackerman, back in the day.

 

UPDATE (4/230/2015): The celebration of naming of Blaster Al Way has been postponed. No new date has yet been set. Here’s Rupert Wondolowski:  “[T]he Blaster Al Worship Foundation has decided we should postpone our celebration in honor of the Freddie Gray Justice activities/movement, so that folks can be free to focus on that.  We will set a new date when our hearts are lighter to trumpet the glory of Blaster’s humor and wisdom.”

ORIGINAL STORY: Blaster Al Ackerman was more than a writer and a mail artist. He was a full-on cult figure, whose sayings (e.g., “May you be blessed to work in a despised medium”) are widely quoted and whose pranks and stunts (e.g., performing his work with a bar of soap in his mouth) have become legendary.
