TeXas Video Showdown (update)


What is it?
A YouTube video that brings the music revolution to a boil. It supports all musicians, with a spotlight on Texas musicians, and does so in an innovative way. Here is the link to the YouTube video, or one can search these three words in quotes, “Texas Video Showdown.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZvMa2f33Wc

Who is doing it?
Hunkasaurus and HIs Pet Dog Guitar representing thousands of musicians. He says his video is the worst music video ever made, and it’s made that way on purpose. It is not pretty, or trendy, or well produced, or filled with famous people like those of the big pop stars, but it IS better music, because it’s just music – one take of one voice, one guitar, and one revolution. He didn’t even comb his hair. Here the music is a simple and fun challenge to the over produced generic corporate music of the sound alike pop stars.

Why limit music to only millionaire musicians with million dollar video budgets when the music is what’s important.

What should musicians and music lovers do?
Vote! Help all musicians by voting THUMBS UP on the video. That means lifting a finger and then bringing it down. Join our music revolt or start your own.
Time for all musicians and music lovers to take a stand. The choice is crystal clear.

Do you want music to be only about 5 multi millionaire pop stars, and stay as it is, or do you want to open the music business to thousands of musicians?

Will you support the musicians you know and love or are you for 5 pop stars making all the money and marginalizing all other musicians into part time careers? Let’s open music to all based on quality and talent again. Let’s make the best music also the most celebrated music. The great musicians you know and love cannot make a living on playing an almost empty club, or selling a few CD’s and a t-shirt. They need a fair chance. Support them and give them a real music career.

Music has jumped the shark, been reduced to 5 sound alike pop stars, shows no originality, hasn’t changed in 20 years and sounds like karaoke. Time for the vitality that change can bring.

Who are the pop stars?
The 5 main ones, though the list may add or take away one here and there, are usually Swift, Perry, Beyonce, Bieber, and the flavor of the month..

What will happen if I do vote? The music industry may be in for a big shakeup if enough people vote. Stand up for those who try to stand out, not fit in.

Before any musician can make a living, and music can become great again, we will have to work together to end the corporate music that has reduced all music down to so few, over produced, sound alike pop stars and their 3 mega music corporations (Warners, Universal, Sony.) That’s why I started the Texas Video Showdown, a video that brings the conflict to one point, one video, one challenge, one vote. So VOTE already, and be a part of music history. Thank you!
