Love Poem: Name a River

January 14, 2017

Name a river…
That’s the one.
You and I
sailing along,
the stars are bright,
the moon is creamy,
eyes full of love,
thoughts dancing,
floating along,
watching the wake,
pass and move on
Our love remains.
The world’s a song.

Puzzled again.

Long break, but we are back with questions to keep your brains sharp.

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
What did the Wizard of Oz (in the book – not the movie) give to the Scarecrow to keep his brains sharp? Clue: the answer is in the “Little Wizard Stories of Oz” from 1914,

IS,
Pins and needles, so his brains would stay sharp.

I had no correct eligible answers. Seems your pins and needles were elsewhere. I don’t dumb down so please wise up.

Now on to a new Q.: Win a copy of my NEW cd CALLED ‘30′! – (first anti-band CD) or my NEWER cd CALLED ‘NEXT”(‘06) or my NEWEST cd CALLED ‘THIRDS” (May ‘07) or my MORE NEWEST cd Called “FOUR-
TH” (‘08) or my MOST NEWEST cd CALLED ‘5-TH (Nov.’09) or my MORE NEWEST NEWEST cd CALLED ’6-TH’(Feb ’12)( one of the 6 CD set). Hunkasaurus.com (has them all plus videos and more) if you are the first to E-MAIL ME AT THIS ADDRESS: tom-hendricks @ att.net(remove blanks of course) with the correct answer to this art question.
DEDICATION: These contests are dedicated to my sister, Peggy, who answered more of the questions correctly than anyone else.

How many words in English have only one letter. Clue this is a trick question.

FINE PRINT: The CD prize is only available to those with mailing addresses in the US. Foreign winners will have to settle for the miniscule fame alone, and the satisfaction of a job well done.

Sub Pop Founder and Dallas Music Revolt

January 7, 2017

Sub Pop Label founder Bruce Pavitt sees the same music problems as I do. 3 CEO’s have ruined it, support only teen pop, and refuse to allow music to grow or change – while all other musicians have been marginalized out of any real careers.

Here are quotes from the music buisness worldwide website article. See link.

“The pop charts have never been this conservative, ever. There are literally 10-20 artists who are in the Top 100; it’s a very closed system unless you’re Drake, Rihanna, Beyonce or Justin Bieber.

“I’m not a music snob, I like pop music, but I do think that popular culture should be much more diverse and genius should rise to the top.

“There were a lot of different players deciding what was going to be popular and the result was a tremendous diversity and genius in popular radio in the ’60s.

“You can go on the internet and stream a wide variety of music now but a lot of it is ghettoised and that’s the problem.

“I think radio has a lot to do with that, and the fact that there are three major labels is certainly part of it.
