September 28, 2011

Readers, don’t forget for every book you buy at Paperbacks Plus you not only get half off from them, you get another half off from the Musea Reading fund.

Announcing as of today it’s past $1500. That’s free money folks.

Here’s the info
MUSEA READING FUND. Set up in Jan. ’97 and still going strong, this fund at Paperbacks Plus Bookstore in Lakewood, allows free credit for ANYONE to help buy ANY CLASSIC of art, music, or literature. ‘Classic’ can mean anything from an Ibsen play to a classic Jazz recording , from a book on Monet’s art to a classic cartoon book like ‘Maus’. Ask for it by name!

KXT Radio, Won’t Donate, Here’s Why (Musea Email Club #533)

September 27, 2011

KXT, the NPR affiliated music station in Dallas, is having a fund raiser. I’m not supporting it. Here’s why:

1. There was hope this would be an open music station. Instead it’s a rigid format that follows other similar stations. AAA format (see below).
2. They have put trendy ahead of quality music.
3. They don’t support local music well. They play some – a token amount; but in the almost two years that they’ve been operating they haven’t found one real hit. They could do a top ten of local music, they could have listeners request local music, they could do a lot of things to build up the local music community – that would in turn build up their listeners. Instead they’ve played it safe and generic.
4. They are too conservative in their choices of music. You won’t hear anything about post-bands music the new music revolution that started in their own back yard!
5. They seem to block out genres of music, kids music, religious music, country, jazz, classical, foreign language, etc.
6. They seem to block out all protest music or music with lyrics that say anything. What’s left is music that is safe, bland, shallow, and white bread.
7. The on air personalities are so laid back they seem drugged. Show some awake-ness and spirit. It’s alright to like the music on air. It’s alright to have a personality.
8. KXT is an AAA format radio station. That stands for adult album alternative format. It is way too constrictive and dull for our town. Here’s what clone AAA stations are all about: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adult_album_alternative
9. The music should be chosen by more people and more points of view. The selection are all beginning to sound alike – slow, depressing, under the influence, over produced, plodding, generic, 60 year old style, rock band music . Been there and heard that! Why not more opinions, why not more input from others – listeners, music experts (Dallas has a lot of them) , etc.

Poems Written in September

September 24, 2011

Poems written in September, 2011
[poem notes in brackets like this]

POEMS

1 [Verse for a Film intro]

This is a film that explores
the wonder that surrounds us
from the universe high above
to the very smallest.

2
Drop!
Drop down from the window.
Land!
Land softly, quietly
Now!
Now go quickly.

3 [first of two poems on ruins]

Everywhere on the planet
that we dug
we’d find ruins
cropping up.

“How old is this place?”
I asked as I
woke from my dream and
my shovel dissolved

4
Some places take
their ancient ruins
and renovate them
till they’re new and …

some preserve them
as they once were and
some let them turn to
a desert of dust.

5
twinkling,
warbling,
dark-breaking,
lights!

SAYINGS

Is time getting bigger as the universe expands.

Don’t versa your vice!

Corporations that are too big to fail, are too big to oppose.

That’s like putting braille on a painting!

How many candles can one candle light?

Like a cactus drinking in the rain ….

Musea Art Contest for the week of 9/21/11

September 21, 2011

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
Here’s another fictional character’s question. This TV character from recent times, said this memorable line, “I smell pluck!”. Who said that, and who was it said about?
IS:
Marc saying it about Betty, from the extremely well written TV series “Ugly Betty” – a personal favorite!

There were no correct eligible answers. Betty does not put two thumbs up!
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!

This fashion accessory takes 1-3 billion years to make. Name it.
Good Luck!

Readers, IF you like these puzzles and would like to resend them to friends, post them on any newsgroup, or any website, please do so. The more the merrier!
