Musea Art Contest 8/30/11 – Good Luck

August 30, 2011

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
This person became the first self made billionaire in the entertainment business in 1990. Name that billionaire!
IS:
David Geffen, sometimes called Hollywood;s richest man. He’s known for Geffen Records, and DreamWorks SKG, Film Company.
There were no correct eligible answers. Seems y’all were dreaming more than working on this one!
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 Just RELEASED MOST NEWEST cd CALLED ‘5-TH’(Nov.’09)( one of the 5 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.

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. But don’t forget you can listen to all the music on the website, whether you won or lost – and I’d be glad if you did!

There are many versions of this story about method acting. When the older actor heard that the young method actor had stayed up for 2 days to get that tired haggard look for the scene, he turned to him and said something like this, My dear boy, why don’t you simply try acting?
Name the two actors involved.

Good Luck!

FIRST WORLD TOP 40 LIST! BEST MUSIC LIST in the WORLD!!! (And hardest to get on!) Never before – or probably never again in history, will anyone hear such great new music all at once.The internet is the world’s first worldwide JUKEBOX. And this is the first music in that jukebox.  The first OUTSIDE THE BOX set. Week after week Musea, my 23 year old Dallas art and media zine scours the net for the very best in music from every corner of the world for the world’s first list of new great music. First World Top 40 ___________________________

WANT SOME REAL CHANGE?  FIRST STEPS Want some change? Real change not just more sound alikes? Want some revolution? Start with no electric guitars, bass, or drums. Why? That forces musicians to think outside of a 60 year old, generic rock, formula, and forces people to be creative and innovative etc. So really want revolution? Leave the Big 3, the 3 corporations that own the music business (Warners, Universal, Sony); and oppose their stranglehold on music. So really want revolution/ Oppose videos, as being too expensive for most musicians to make, and that shifts the emphasis back on the music not the visuals. So really want revolution? Dump corporate sponsors. So really want revolution? Stop writing your own songs, and let professional songwriters write good songs again. So really want revolution? Support the Postism revolution coming out of Dallas and the zine Musea.. ___________________________

MUSIC REVOLUTION VIDEO Short video from a series on the art and media revolution. 5 Doors to the Art Revolution – Music ________________________

NAQ\’s – NEVER ASKED QUESTIONS http://www.hunkasaurus.com/naq.html/ _________________________

MY MUSICAL HISTORY One standard guitar, one voice, one revolution: My Music:  Trying to lead the new music with some rebellion and vitality that includes these CONTENDERS FOR WORLD’S FIRSTS in music: 1. First music to oppose what 60 year old rock/rap/country/pop have become, and start a new back to basic music. First new music of this century. 2. Postmod Music is part of the larger art and media revolution started by the Zine Musea 20 years ago. http://www.musea.us/ 3. First Box Office Concerts. Guitar and voice concerts from the Inwood Movie Theater in Dallas played IN THE BOX OFFICE. – Glass Booth. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2MjygxvUPpo 4. First Internet, BEST NEW MUSIC – WORLD WIDE LIST Musea’s Worldwide Favorite Music LIST (200+ now) “100 Plus Favorite Music from Youtube and Myspace” http://wp.me/p5S9X-36 5. First live request and dedication IN CONCERT. 6. “Combo” acoustic guitar style (bass, rhythm and lead all at once) – The, This Silvertone is as good as a band” style. https://musea.wordpress.com/2013/01/30/do-you-know-of-anyone-else-that-started-a-new-style-of-playing-the-guitar/ 7. Bringing the ROLL back ! (the roll that rock and roll and popular music has lost).  Too much of the music today is like gum without the flavor. Something is missing. It’s the oil, the “roll” in rock and roll. That’s the oil in the machine! 8. First artist’s first CD, a 9 CD SET of 150 songs HUNKASAURUS AND HIS PET DOG GUITAR, Outside the Box Set”. Fo/mo/info http://www.musea.us/fall14.html  – See CDBaby for all 9 CD’s This outside the box, set of 150 songs by Hunkasaurus and His Pet Dog Guitar, is a collection of all types of music, that show: the many variations of voice and standard guitar music, a type of combo guitar style, and 17 years of box office concerts. Now listen to the simple melodic music covering every genre except generic bands, 1. Hunkasarus.com,  CDBaby, or streaming on most all major music sites. 2. Lost Tapes (from the 80’s and 90-‘s) 3. The Big List. (200 of the best new music on the internet) ——————————————

HIT SONG CHALLENGE Let’s go beyond the music hype and get the music facts. Compare how many musicians had 3-6 big hits from the period of 1955-1975, with the corporate music era of 1995-2014. https://musea.wordpress.com/2014/05/27/hit-song-challenge/ ———————————————–

THE BIG THREE:  Instead of thousands of small record companies from every town in the country, competing on quality, we have 3 who own 80% of the music business. Warners/ Universal/ Sony (WUS). What they don’t own outright, they distribute. It has led to safe, generic ,formulaic, music  from a few stars, and an almost complete loss of vitality. Why have all the creative people been marginalized? Where are they? https://musea.wordpress.com/2014/06/03/why-have-all-the-creative-people-been-marginalized-where-are-they/ Have you gotten the corporate memo?  Music is only these 5 musicians https://musea.wordpress.com/2013/10/24/music-down-to-these-5-beyonce-beiber-lady-gaga-perry-and-swift/ ———————————————

WHY ARE SO MANY PEOPLE SAYING BAD MUSIC IS GOOD?
Why are So Many People Saying Bad Music is Good? https://musea.wordpress.com/2015/03/24/why-are-so-many-people-saying-bad-music-is-good/
—————————–

VIDEOS ARE OUT Right now only the richest musicians back by the largest corporations can afford making videos (short films with big budgets). The Eighties are over. Time to put the emphasis on the audio music, not the visuals or the singer.  by getting rid of videos, the playing field is more fair, and the competition to get good music is much wider.  Back to basics music, means you don’t need a record company, all you need is a voice and guitar and some good music .  Back to basics means music is open to all on talent not depth of pockets. ———————————————-

COMMENTS POEMS SAYINGS ON POSTMOD MUSIC https://musea.wordpress.com/2013/08/24/rock-n-roll-poems/ ——————————————-

ROCK AND ROLL DOESN’T ROCK NO MORE Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more. It’s turned middle age and become a bore. It’s everything it used to oppose. Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more. Rock and roll is corporate and dull. It’s phony music that’s lost its soul. It’s paint-by-number and rotten to the core. Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more. Rock and roll has got to go. Base, drums, and guitars are so so-so. Enough of the clones of clones of clones. Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more. Rock and roll has got to go. Its taken 60 years but now it’s so. It’s lost the beat and doesn’t roll. Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more. Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more. It’s a has-been and It’s your father’s olds. It’s spirit is gone and the choir all knows Rock and roll doesn’t rock no more. c Tom Hendricks, 2010 but free to reprint in full. (Just one person’s opinion) —————————————–

Poems written in August,  2011

[poem notes in brackets like this]

POEMS

1

Even a journey

to the center of the earth

at some point begins

a journey back out.

2. [the poet does a science paper]

I’m finishing my first

scientific paper

titled, “Butterflies

Evolved From Clouds.”

3.

PIED PIPER OF HAMLIN ((summary)

Rats! Rats!

everyplace

They call in the Piper

to eradicate

He plays. They Gather

from miles around.

He pipes. They follow

him out of town.

He returns with a bill

for the townsmen.

But they in return

turn him down.  Then…

He pipes again,

a different tune,

and the kinder follow

to their doom!

4. [a personal favorite]

In this painting

the rabbits in the air

5. [poetic physics]

“To go down these steps

you need a smaller

foot at each landing.

Atom to quark.

So on and so forth.”

“What’s at the bottom?”

asks the interviewer.

“It’s steps for a while.

The rest unknown.”

SAYINGS

My iron was wrought!

Government is more than money management.

Trying to get Bach precision with Tchaikovsky melody (writing my piano pieces).

Some argue that modern art doesn’t have to be beautiful. I argue that it doesn’t

have to be ugly either.

People can’t buy groceries with political bickering.

No-isms – name for the new art  that opposes modern art and one trick pony, artists.

Your body is a wish list!

All work and low pay.

Musea Art Contest 8/11/22

August 22, 2011

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

First a conceptual art piece of mine (conceptual art and video to end conceptual art!) to set the atmosphere for this art question.

Now a conceptual art art question. This conceptual artist did a work of three white cards in a frame. Each was an invitation to an art show at a different world art gallery, and each added some phrase in the announcement that said that during the show the gallery would be closed! Is it any wonder I say some conceptual art is a joke without a punch line! Back to the question – What’s the name of our conceptual artist. And for extra credit what’s the name of the art piece.
IS:
Robert Barry, and the 1969 art work was titled “Closed Gallery” The closed galleries were in Amsterdam, Turin, and Los Angeles.
I had no correct answers seems your ‘gallery’ was closed too!
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 Just RELEASED MOST NEWEST cd CALLED ‘5-TH’(Nov.’09)( one of the 5 CD set).

Musea Extra: Peace Sign (Lyrics)

August 20, 2011

Recorded the vocals for my song, Peace Sign this afternoon. (Friday 19) 4 Hours of singing lead and background. Lyrics below.

PEACE SIGN

There’s a cloud of memories
blowing by the wind here to you and me.

All these songs come back again
about the passion and the fire we had to do the right thing

We’d gather hands in a circle and run
round, and round, and round, and round, and round.
Until we’d loose our balance or breath
and fall down, down, down.

talking bout peace and accepting all men (and women and children)
talking bout the right of all of us to be free again.

(Middle)

Coming in loud, coming in clear.
Cat Stevens is a singing that the Peace Train’s arriving here.

Beatle John says ‘give peace a chance’
Instant Karma’s gonna knock you off your feet in a cosmic dance.

(Middle)

And the rhetoric and the soul and the message goes
on and on and on and on
One part truth one part wish one part gaul
all in song song song

Now it is time, to lend peace an ear
and bring back the best of what we had to say back there

‘C’mon People now Smile on your brother
Every body get together, try to love one another right
NOW………………..
