Texas Video Showdown (update half a thousand views later)

October 9, 2015

There have been over 600 people looking at my, Texas Video Showdown, (one indie musician versus the corporate pop stars). Will you go and thumbs up this video for me – change music – it needs a shake up.

Want better music? Then it’s up to you to challenge the corporate stuff. Start with one thumbs up. That is not too much to ask. Then tell others. Help invigorate music – it needs it and you know it.
Note no Texas media has helped in the least – they moved to NYC, love generic pop, and are against creative music events.

The Texas Video Showdown is one indie musician representing thousands of indie musicians, versus the Pop Stars, Swift, Perry, Cyrus, Beyonce, Bieber, 1D etc.
People are asked to vote on the youtube video, for a handful of corporate stars that sound a lot alike, or vote for thousands of indie musicians who don’t.
The indie musician, Hunkasaurus, has purposely made the worst video ever, with great music to challenge the over produced generic corporate music of the sound alike pop stars. AND HE’S WINNING IN FIRST VOTING. Help him by voting thumbs up on youtube.

Texas Video Showdown: Hunkasaurus versus Taylor Swift, Madonna, Katy Perry, and other corporate stars in the corporate pop versus indie everything else!
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, Madonna, Katy Perry, Beyonce, Bieber, and their very expensive recent videos, to a video showdown.
Hunkasaurus, representing thousands of indie musicians, says his video is not as pretty or trendy or well produced, or as filled with famous people, but that it is better music, because it’s just music – one take, one guitar, one revolution. So far he is winning in first voting.

Reviews for my 3 Novels

October 8, 2015

The last issue of zine Musea had a page of some recent reviews I’ve gotten for these novels, Cendrillo0n, the True Story of Cinderella, Portraits, a novel about Art, Artists, and the Art Revolution, and Library Plane, a section of the larger novel in progress, Writings in Science. See what you think.
Also for a short time, I can send anyone a free streaming copy from Amazon, (kindle readers) for a paragraph review posted on my Amazon writer page.


Tom Hendricks uses a unique historical perspective to bring new life to the tale of Cinderella…. Hidden within the story are lessons about love, loss and acceptable behavior, not to mention the definition of true beauty … Cendrillon: The True Story of Cinderella is a delightful version of a favorite fairy tale. – Melinda Hills

This version, which includes a carefully restored photograph of the heroine of the tale, makes the story an adventure and a delight all over again… And Cendrillon? She’s everything a fairy tale lover could ask for… most highly recommended – Jack Magnus

Yes, at the heart of Portraits is a love story, a love triangle, but its soul delves deeper into a layered plot that draws out a more widespread implication: that art is the axis of all things beautiful, significant, and real. – Jamie Michele

The author’s story captures the essence of the lifestyle and struggles of artists, especially those who’ve not been discovered… I … enjoyed the way he builds up each artist’s character, artistic influences and personal style. The correspondence between Jack and his mysterious friend is compelling reading, and I began to look forward to each new missive … I had a marvelous time reading this novel and am looking forward to rereading it soon…. – Jack Magnus

I was drawn into it rather quickly and I really liked the characters …I enjoyed Portraits … and would definitely recommend it to a friend. This was a very well-written short novella with a good story-line. – Samantha Dewitt

Tom Hendricks’ Library Planet is an explosion of imagination and wonderful cultures from all the diverse planets… This is a story for those who want to get lost in a planet sized library without spending too much time away from real life. – Maria Stoica

Library Planet by Tom Hendricks is a gripping mystery with a mixture of sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and even a bit of romance. I was amazed at how Tom Hendricks managed to bring out a story so deep on so few pages. – Faridah Nassozi

Library Planet is exactly what it says it is; an outstanding look into the very core of human evolution and its repository of knowledge. I started the first page dubiously, thinking that I would run through the book in an hour or two, and finished the last page a week later with a satisfied sigh! This is a book of originality, vision, imagination
and content. – Deepak Menon

Library Planet is hauntingly beautiful, and the author’s use of language and imagery throughout the work is inspired. This story is part fantasy, part fable, and totally awesome; and it’s most highly recommended. Wow! This is breathtakingly good. Bravo! – Jack Magnus

Report – O2 on earth earlier than thought

October 7, 2015

Life is not a fluke one-time assembly, of chemicals that popped up out of nothing in one place. It’s a reaction to the environment over millions of years.

My ideas on the origin of life, are based on the idea that life was a reaction to UV and sunlight, in a daily cycle. That gets some support by this article showing how far back photosynthesis goes – much further than many had thought.



My paper:

Catabolic and Anabolic evolved, but they did not blend.
