February 27, 2020

Here are 3 major points to the music revolution:

1. Pennies for play – pay for every click anywhere online.
2. D – Pop Music – the only thing that matters is the song.
3. Big 3 Labels – 3 CEOs have ruined music – take it back.

Musea History – the First Website

Readers, The following is the first page of the first Musea Website posted in the 90′s. It’s a general welcome to all. It was retrieved through the WAYBACK MACHINE, the internet archives. (the Musea website is at Musea.us or look up the article about me in Wikipedia)

————————————–

Once upon a time
In a Prairie Town
On the edge of a pine forest
In the hot summer of 1992…

I, Tom Hendricks,
A Musician, Painter and Writer,
Was slipping into nowhere
At a steady pace – then…
An idea…a fantabulous idea-
Musea was born…

HELLO AND WELCOME to the website for the zine MUSEA. We’re the monthly newsletter that is leading the ART REVOLUTION AGAINST the handful of CORPORATE ART AND MEDIA CONGLOMERATE WEASELS (there are only 10* now) who control virtually all of the arts and media in the U.S.; and we are FOR the best of all the “Indie” (independent) artists outside of corporate art…

Thanks for stopping by and browsing, and tell your friends about MUSEA. the zine for ART and the ART REVOLUTION.
Musea since 1992.

3 Golden Ages in the Arts

3 Golden Ages in the Arts

From 1990 to 2020 there was a golden age of technology but no golden age of content in the arts. The mainstream mega corporations invented new tech, but couldn’t find content to fill them!

Through the last 30 years there has been a consolidation of companies connected to the arts and media into fewer and fewer hands. This consolidation has ruined almost all the arts from music, writing, and art, to film, theater, and dance.

But there are these 3 exceptions. They all have something in common. They all developed outside the control of the giant media art conglomerates. That means that in every case thousands competed, not 5 or so mega corporations like in the mainstream generic arts.

These three still remain unappreciated and underreported by the mainstream media.

Here are 3 that stand out for me.

1. Zines. The late 80s and 90s were the last golden age of literature before the net.
2. Online bloggers, and original youtube channels, are the new radio and TV. 3. The Korean wave of both K-Pop and K-Dramas developed innovative music and TV / films.

So Who is Listening?

January 27, 2020

Q. But aren’t there people out there that love the generic mainstream pop?A. No! No one is lapping it up. No one here, no one anywhere. The Big 3 Labels, parent companies own the media and talk shows that review and promote their bad music. They make it sound like this music is popular. But all sales are way down, and last year was the first to match the high year of sales, 1999! Virtually everyone I’ve ever talked to is like you reading this, and has to block out corporate and search out good music. That should tell you it’s a marketing scheme, not the will of anyone anywhere . No one seems to know this, and so they really think there is some weird people out there that love this junk and hate good music. No

Sayings of Editor Art!

X: Wow, you are a Renaissance Man!
Y: I’m not THAT old

Musicians, are you D-Pop and for all musicians or for the Big 3 Labels: Warner, Universal, Sony?

D-Pop is music where the song is most important; not fame, millions spent on production or the number of background dancers in your video?

Naughty or Nice – it’s not a multiple choice!

We’ve had 30 years of technical innovations in the arts. Now it’s time for a golden age of content!

Have you ever had a dream that you were sleepy?

My wallet is a one way street.

The accountants run Hollywood and it shows.

3 companies, The Big 3 Labels, run music, have ruined it, and have got to go. Share the news!

The person who uses religion to hurt others is a monster!

Why does time have speed limits; velocity up to the speed of light.

a franchise is a product not a film.

Ulysses by James Joyce, abridged version.
Buck Mulligan
came bearing
a bowl of lather.

I’d ask you to grow old with me, but I’m already there!

Everyone wants to record an album cut – no one wants to record a hit!

I write my children’s books for me. Kid’s opinions just get in the way.

I like this novel! It doesn’t bog down with good writing!

When a business makes excessive profits, it’s either in a banner year or it’s cheating someone.Sad to report that this recording’s sophistication will be lost on all but the most discriminating and refined tonal palettes!
