Hunkasaurus and his cheap bad video with his beat up standard guitar, and no giant set behind him but a blank wall, has challenged Taylor Swift and her very expensive new video, Bad Blood to a video off.
Hunkasaurus says his video is not as pretty or trendy or well produced or as filled with famous people,, but that it is better music from his own bedroom because it’s just music – one take, one guitar, one revolution.
Compare the two:

Hunkasaurus and His Pet Dog Guitar
Bad Blood may be the video that jumps the shark for mainstream musicians. Not because it’s bad, it’s ok and a lot like most of all the other mainstream videos; but because it is such a big production that no other musician can match it. Hey pop musicians, where do you go from this? You can’t do bigger. The only direction is back to basics. That’s the Hunkasaurus message, combined with a little rebellion, excitement, and fun! https://musea.wordpress.com/2011/08/29/post-bands-music-revolution-quick-summary/

Dear Reader, Musea #196, the second issue all on Architecture, (May/June/July is now out, at large, and at all the usual suspects – including your mail!
See my ideas on the Amber Chapel, Musead the Ocean Liner Building, the Glass Cathedral and more.
Here from the intro:
“I don’t know of a recent issue of Musea that was more fun to do than this one. I love architecture and for decades have enjoyed designing imaginary buildings that I would love to visit, work at, and live in. How drab a day at a ‘box’ building that no architect has ever loved. How exhilarating a day at a labor-of-love edifice rising with gusto and moxie from its surroundings. Come with me and take a walking tour of Tommy-ville populated with lots of new and hopefully – some day – ‘ground-breaking’ buildings . Enjoy!” [Note: Some buildings are repeats, some are revised, and some are new.]
I hope to one day
turn these into
and built models
and finished buildings
towering above me.

Sure I love Picasso, and I think Alberto Giacometti is a fine sculptor, and I appreciate the fun work of Jean Dubuffet , but this is getting silly.
Christies Auction House on 5/12/15, got $179.3 million for a Picasso (highest auction price for a painting ever), $141.2 for a Giacometti, and a Dubuffet for $24.8
Lots of these sales are to people who buy and resell. I think there is a tulip mania about all of this. The art with the high prices was not the best by their artists IMO. Can’t help but think there will be a bubble burst here.
I think that bidders were missing the elephant in the room – the backlash against what modern art has become, and the groundswell for something new.
For resellers out there, here is my art work, titled “Buying before the Bust”. Price tag $179.4 million. Shipping included.
