Beethoven Fix?

December 16, 2017

So if I have enough gaul to ‘fix” the art work of celebrated masters in painting, do I have enough to ‘fix’ the music of Beethoven on his birthday today 16th?
(Perhaps added to, or made my version, would be a better tem, but not as provocative.)

Fractured Beethoven (this piece was made and played by me. BTW this is not easy to play!)

100 Handmade Art Envelopes

December 16, 2017

Handmade Envelopes.

These are some envelopes that I made out of glossy paper from assorted magazines and catalogues.
The best ones are made up of 3 works of related art, each with their own significance. The front of the envelope, the back, and under the flap. But most are just a simple one of a kind pleasure.
I made about 100 during November, 2017. Enjoy.

Buying the Government; Net Neutrality and a New Paradigm

December 16, 2017

Congress took 101 million in donations from the Internet Service Providers or ISP industry. How much did your lawmaker get? Find out here.

Who will control the government, people or corporations . No person wanted to get rid of net neutrality, only corporations. Why is the government of the people turning it’s back on the people who have spoken?

This bares repeating:

Till Mickey Mouse is in the Public Domain, corporations control the government. Disney tells the government to jump and the government says how high Mickey?

We have three political parties, the Republican Corporate Party, the Democratic Corporate Party, and all the rest of us that don’t have lobbyists.

The paradigm is shifting from conservative versus liberal to corporations versus people.

Day after day it’s becoming more and more clear The paradigm is shifting from conservative versus liberal to corporations versus people and democracy. Both are fighting for control of the government. Corporations usually win.

Must Make Profits at All Costs !!!

Corporations Don’t Have to Maximize Profits / NYT article.

These five quotes are from Lynn Stout, professor of corporate and business law at Cornell Law School. Updated April 16, 2015, 6:46 AM

There is a common belief that corporate directors have a legal duty to maximize corporate profits and “shareholder value” — even if this means skirting ethical rules, damaging the environment or harming employees. But this belief is utterly false …

Serving shareholders’ “best interests” is not the same thing as either maximizing profits, or maximizing shareholder value. …

The business judgment rule gives directors protection from judicial second-guessing about how to best serve their companies and shareholders….

… the business judgment rule gives directors nearly absolute protection from judicial second-guessing about how to best serve the company and its shareholders…

In other words, it is activist hedge funds and modern executive compensation practices — not corporate law — that drive so many of today’s public companies to myopically focus on short-term earnings; cut back on investment and innovation; mistreat their employees, customers and communities; and indulge in reckless, irresponsible and environmentally destructive behaviors.

Why Does All the Music Sound Alike

December 12, 2017

Take an electronic keyboard, drum machine, and auto tune, and …

This video by Pop Theory, by Roomie spells out why the music is so generic (and deserving of a music revolution against the 3 CEOs that run 80% of it – no women allowed BTW) This is insightful and spot on. Take a look.
