“Safe” News Defined

December 28, 2009

This is a news story that effects only a very few people. For some reason the media thinks, balloon boy, White House gate crashers, and Tiger Woods are the most important stories that effect our lives. The media has more and more shifted stories to ‘safe’ stories. A safe story is one that effects very very few people, has two sides to raise controversy, has a bit of a scandal, and in no way challenges anyone in power. By shifting news to safe news, media less and less tackles real news that effects millions, and might challenge advertisers, sponsors, governments, or anyone with power.

Musea Art Quiz 12/21/09

December 21, 2009

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

The actor in the space opera began saying his part:
“Engines on! Countdown begins! 10,9,8,… LINE!”

But seriously though, what FILM invented the countdown?

IS
Countdown was first used by the 1929 German science fiction movie “Die Frau im Mond” by Fritz Lang to increase the drama of the launch sequence of the story’s lunar rocket, says wikipedia.

I had no winner.
Seems when asked the answer, y’all replied, “Line!”

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)

Two Last Minute Gifts for Everyone

December 18, 2009

Reader,
Here are two small gifts for you. The first is the new issue of Musea, the second is the Musea Reading Fund, half off of any classic anything!

The new issue of Musea, “Chess Sets” is now up on the Musea website at musea.us. For Christmas each year, I’ve tried to write a short story that fits the season. This year it’s the story of Barty, who as a child loved to draw. The story starts out:

Once while 8 year old Barty was working on a drawing of a horse, an uncle watching him, asked if he’d like a pony of his own? Barty said, “If I get a horse, I want one with wings,” and went back to drawing.

Over the Years I have established and help support a Musea Reading Fund at Paperbacks Plus Bookstore at 6115 LaVista Dallas 75214 phone 214 827 4860. Others have graciously added their credit too. The fund now has over $1300 that ANYONE can use to help buy ANYTHING that would be considered a classic. That includes a classic book, recording, art book, or classic TV, even a classic pulp fiction magazine. Just ask at the desk for the Musea reading fund. You’ll get half off of the regular price anyway. Then they’ll add another half off for the Musea Reading fund. It’s my way of supporting good reading, and great arts of all kinds!

I hope these help merry up your holidays!
