Conceptual art on conceptual art

April 25, 2019

This is a conceptual art piece that challenges conceptual art pieces! There is a blank piece of paper and a poem underneath that reads:

Tom Friedman made an art piece
“1,000 Hours of Staring”
(at a piece of white paper
touched only by the artist’s gaze.)
I could do the same masterpiece
in 46 minutes and 13 seconds.
Can you tell the difference?

Goals of the Arts and Media Revolution

April 22, 2019

What is the arts and media revolution for? We work for these changes:

1. Fair guaranteed reviews to all.

2. Fair media coverage based on quality not promotion budgets.

3. Pennies for play – the author would get a penny for every click on say a chapter of his novel, or book anywhere it’s posted online.

4. The break up of those few companies that make the art, distribute the art, promote the art, and then review the art. They can do any one of those, but not all four! That is too much control in too few hands. The arts of a country cannot be owned by a few conglomerates.

5. City art centers, that are open to promoting all local authors (or artists of any kind.)

Pennies for Play vs. Monthly Fee

April 22, 2019

Dear Reader,

Sooner or later a monthly fee for this and that is going to overwhelm the customers.

PENNIES FOR PLAY – part of the music revolution would allow the consumer to mix and match what HE/SHE wants to access – with a penny per play charged to them for every click on content, no matter what website the content is on (not only music, but blogs, videos, art, novels, films, plays, photos, school courses, etc.).

Which would you prefer? Stuck with one site’s limited content, or open to accessing every single thing on the net – AND the artist gets paid – AND there are few middlemen companies in the way.

The Joni Mitchell Quote

April 6, 2019

Dear Reader,

This Joni Mitchell quote was sent to me by JHC. Mitchell is right and its worse than she thought because ‘they’ are only 3 CEOs, the Big 3 – google it for more.
That’s why the music revolution from Dallas against these 3, and for all the other musicians in the world.

Joni Mitchell:

“I heard someone from the music business saying they are no longer looking for talent, they want people with a certain look and a willingness to cooperate. I thought, that’s interesting, because I believe a total unwillingness to cooperate is what is necessary to be an artist – not for perverse reasons, but to protect your vision. The considerations of a corporation, especially now, have nothing to do with art or music. That’s why I spend my time now painting.”

The RECAP issue, #204

November 19, 2018

Dear Reader,

The new issue of Musea #204 is out at the usual suspected places, been mailed to the usual suspects, and will be online at the slightly suspicious Musea website soon!

This issue is the RETROGRADE Issue, a recap of the last 25 years and 203 issues that went before. Lots of surprises here for every reader, from the casual to the faithful!

Look and see what you think. Comments welcome.

Tom Hendricks – editor.
