Musea E-mail Club #492 5TH CD, Facebook, and 2,500 Friends

November 20, 2009

This week its all about in house news.

While I’m working on my annual Christmas Story – this year titled “Chess Sets”, I’ve got some in house news for you.

You can now hear the entire new 5TH CD at hunkasaurus.com. Matthew has
posted it there for all to hear. Go by punch the music button, then the 5th button and listen to any or all of the songs. Let me know what you think. And if you can listen on headphones!

I, as of today, am now on Facebook. And though I’m still figuring it all
out, it seems you search friends by e-mail. So sign me up to your friends list if you’d like to connect to what Musea is doing.

I also accepted my 2,500 friend on Myspace today. Myspace sure has a lot of music. Facebook will have to go some to match in the music department. I look forward to new friends on either site.

That’s it for now.

Musea E-mail club #491 Stuckism and Modern Art

November 17, 2009

Dear Reader,
This time I’m going to look at the revolution in art and talk about Stuckism.
Stuckism is an international art movement started in Britain in 1999 by Billy Childish and Charles Thomson. It strongely opposes the abuses of modern art. The group’s ideas sounded much like my own and I wanted to contact them.

I did. I suggested some of my own work protesting modern art abuses, and I got a couple of nice e-mails back from Thomson. He, for example commented that he enjoyed the Snake Oil Video (see below).

I think it is important to note that I’ve sent many similar responses to
mainstream art magazines and art groups and NONE of them responded.
It shows me that the Stuckists are more engaged and involved with others.

Thomson and his group have targeted the trendy art prize, the Turner Prize, awarded by the Tate Gallery.The group also opposes conceptual art, and favors a more back to basics art.

That’s something I like, as you can see here in this summary of my
art ideas:

http:​/​/​musea.​wordpress.​com/​2009/​06/​01/​musea-​extra-​summary-​of-​the-​re…
1. I’ve used a youtube video to promote a conceptual art project to
bring down conceptual art! (the infamous Snake Oil Video)
http:​/​/​www.​youtube.​com/​watch?​v=​WneXAHfuvwc&​feature=​channel_​page

2. I’ve also responded to one Turner Prize winner, Martin Creed, with
my own conceptual art work that literally “turns out the lights’ on
conceptual art in a conceptual art work, “The End of Modern Art”.

3. And finally to show the positive directions I suggest art should go, there is this short talk on Art as one of the “5 Doors to the Art Revolution”.
http:​/​/​www.​youtube.​com/​watch?​v=​OAp9LUx-​KXI
Now back to Stuckism. It has grown to 202 groups in 48 countries.
The American group was the second group founded outside the UK.
I salute all Stuckists, I agree with your cause, and will support you
in bringing back quality to the visual arts! Art is fun and exciting
again and you have helped bring that about!

Musea Art Contest – My 400th One

The answer to, and winner (if any) for,
our last contest question of:

This duet by Billie Holiday and Louis Armstrong has
Satchmo saying the F word. Name the record.

IS
“My Sweet Hunk O’ Trash”. September ’49. Decca withdrew the record and put out a clean version! I wonder how it got past them in the first place.

The prize winner was Cindy from San Antonio, Tx.
Congratulations.

Seems the rest of you had answers that had to be recalled too!
