Banned Book Week – How About Banned Half of the Town – Dallas

September 30, 2017

This is my letter to Half Price Books, concerning their Banned Book Week Announcement.

Half of Dallas has been ‘banned’ . The 25 years of my zine Musea proves that.

Dear Half Price Books,

The perfect example of banned books is right here in Dallas.

Since 1992 the progressive arts and media zine, Musea, published monthly,

has been ‘banned’ from every media source in the city.

You probably have never heard coverage of any of our 200 issues

or the musicians, painters, writers, filmmakers, photographers, and indie media sources

we have talked about over the years.

You have probably not heard of the hundreds of progressive ideas in the arts and media

that Musea has suggested to improve every aspect of the arts and media.

The 200th issue of Musea was also an underground history of Dallas from 1992-2017.

Read 100 pages of the Dallas that has been ‘banned’.

Spotify Office Mansions

September 30, 2017

Dear Reader,

Spotify is not in it for the artist. That becomes crystal clear when you see their Ivory Tower Offices.

They are not there to pay musicians. They are there to make profit off musicians.
That is legal to do, but musicians need a site that caters to them, not exploits them.
This link let’s you visit the Spotify skyscraper mansions where they pay about 1 million a month in rent.

Here is our option to all this:
There is a way to get fair online compensation for every musician (and every writers, filmmaker, painter, etc.)

Pay for Play. Set up an online pay for play service where clicking on a webpage pays a penny or so to access the work of the artist, musician, writer, filmmaker, architect, dancer, photographer, journalist, etc. This simple step eliminates the entire layer of corporate middlemen, allows any artist of any kind to get compensation, and allows independent media to be free of any ads or sponsors.

When we devise a site for artists, and not the streaming platforms, then things change. https://musea.wordpress.com/2017/04/20/revolution-in-arts-recommendations/

Musea Reading Fund

September 28, 2017

Dear Musea Readers,

Just added $439 to the Musea Reading Fund store credit, for ANYONE to buy ANY classic anything bought at the Lucky Dog Book Chain in Dallas. (I have a couple of thousand in there, so use it up.)

People Power – When Power is Out

September 25, 2017

People Power

News says disaster areas out of power. Why? Where there are people there is people power.
This video shows how one person riding a bike generates power that can be stored. Now imagine many people, not riding a bike, but turning a wheel – like a windmill turned sideways. They can make their own power.

https://youtu.be/ZmHY9DkD1Hw

There is a simple low tech way to get power to every neighborhood that has people – people power.
Don’t forget low tech solutions. They are cheaper and easier to set up – great for poorer communities, and they don’t involve the government.
Turn a water wheel or windmill sideways and you have a revolving door or turnstile.
Hook a generator to a revolving door of a skyscraper, or a turnstile at a stadium or the doors at a concert hall, and you have people power – even in a blackout. Free, clean, renewable, on site, and even healthy, power.
