You Can Help Save The Endangered Klang!

We are raising funds to help pay for the medical, therapy, lost wages, and round the clock Screaming Yellow Zonkers for klangklangston, also known as Josh Steichmann. If you would like to contribute to this noble, just cause then please buy a digital reproduction of one or more of his series of prints of the Salvation Mountain in Niland, CA. We ask that you make a donation in an amount of your choice & by your method of choice to Josh after you download one or more of these high resolution (TIFF) prints. Clicking on a thumbnail will download a file approximately 15mb via Mediafire. You do not need a Mediafire account to download.

You can donate in several ways--if you wish to contribute monetarily, you can send a check or money order to
J. Steichmann, P.O. Box 131254, Ann Arbor, MI 48113-1254, or if you prefer to donate by credit card, bank transfer, or PayPal account, click on the donate button below and to the right.

If your donation is more of the spiritual, moral, or fruit-basket variety--that is, you don't think the post office box would fit that knitted full body suit in size XLT--email us at and we'll send you the local street address. Modesty and the thought of all of klang's ardent followers trying to park in West LA prevents us from publishing the exact coordinates here.

We appreciate every card, letter, gift-in-bad-taste, and every last red cent and we hope that you cherish your digital file purchase at least as much as you would enjoy an invisible t-shirt.

So, last week, I called my billing case worker and was like, "Hey, I sent in that last round of paperwork about a month ago and I haven't heard from you at all, so I was just calling to check in and see what the status is…"

I'm used to just not hearing anything, but she called me back today.


She approved my application for charity aid, and she said that the bill is taken care of. That I shouldn't receive any other bills (if I do, let her know), and that I'm wiped clean. I'd still prefer to get this in writing, but it looks like that $100k debt is no longer hanging over me.

I kinda wish that she didn't sound so bored and annoyed that she had to call me, like, "Yeah, I made the decision about a month ago. Sorry that I didn't return your call until now, psssshh whatevs."

All I've got left is the bill for the surgeons, which is about $9000, which is a lot, but is totally totally doable. Especially compared to $100000. Goddamn.

So, thanks again to everyone who helped! Love you all!
