Birthday of Elvis and his song Treat Me Nice is in the middle of the Music Change

January 8, 2016

Today is the birthday of Elvis Presley and he is still relevant to music. His song Treat Me Nice, is leading the Texas Video Showdown a video challenge of a music industry that is down to 5 pop stars. Vote – go to the link and vote thumbs up. Join a thousand others.

People should know that one indie musician, representing all musicians except a few pop stars, has challenged the 5+ pop stars to the Texas Video Showdown, and Swift, Perry, Beyonce, Bieber, 1D, etc. even with all their fans, are loosing so far. Readers that want a big music change – please vote for the thousands of good musicians that are not one of the five or so sound alike pop stars. if you know a great musician, they are probably out of the music business no matter how good they are.

The indie musician, Hunkasaurus, has purposely made the worst video ever – he didn’t even comb his hair – with simple solid fun music to challenge the over produced generic corporate music of the sound alike pop stars. Help him by voting thumbs up on youtube.

Piccola (a Christmas Story – from the Musea Vaults)

December 24, 2015

Piccola

(Musea version of a poem by Celia Thaxter.
Note it was the custom for St. Nick to leave a present in the child’s shoe. ) …

Poor Mother, poor Father, house maid and share cropper
and both pockets empty, except for due bills.
What can they get their little girl for Christmas.
“Piccola! Piccola! Love of my life!”

Father wrings hands and mother cries.
The bells ring carols as the family walks to church.
A snowflake falls on Piccola’s nose.
The sky turns from grey to deepest pure blue
As they enter the nave with the other parishioners.

All three singing from hard wood pews.
Piccola’s mouth makes a big “O” on her vowels.
But her mind’s trying to see, not the notes, but the future – Trying to see what would fill up her shoe,
Trying to see by one dim candle.

Parents in whispers, decide it’s best
To tell her her present is not here yet,
Not denied, it’s only delayed …
And drop into slumber as they pray
‘Perhaps by January and Jesus’ grace …

Morning Sun peeps through the fluttering shades,
The window cracked open gets abundant free air.
Piccola’s eyes widen as she remembers,
And before the cock crows tumbles to her shoe.
And their shivering, a refugee from the cold.
A tiny beige and half asleep sparrow.

Picolla feeds it – they have crumbs a plenty,
And bounds to her parents, “Look what St. Nicholas left me!
It’s the best gift a girl could get”
I’ve decided to christen it Picollete
And all eyes glisten with tears of joy.
