Gaining Ground – Independent Labels

May 22, 2018

Dear Reader,

The independent labels are gaining ground. This year is the 2nd in a row that Independent Labels control a bigger share of music revenues than any of the 3 major labels.

This from the digital music article “Collectively, Indie Labels are Now Bigger Than Any Major Label”

Indie labels are now outranking major labels in terms of total marketshare. In fact, this is the second-straight year that’s happened.

Rankings are based on revenues earned, instead of units sold or total streams.

Specifically, indies pulled a 32.2 percent marketshare, with Universal Music Group following at 29.7 percent. Sony Music Group finished with 21.9 percent, while Warner Music Group lagged with 16.7 percent.

Independents 32%

Universal (UMG) 30%
Sony (SME) 22%
Warner (WMG) 16%

Sayings of Editor Art

Barreling forward like a bull driving a locomotive.

Sometimes mysticism is very down to Earth.

Don’t you recognize a smoke screen when you see one.

The blossoming tree draws all the birds.

Even when you’re great, you’re often not very good.

He was a black belt in slapstick!

We are string in a society of knots

When your parents disparage you, get a 2nd opinion.

Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth? Better name is last century recycling museum.

Writers live off comments? We can tell ourselves how good it is, but that’s a limiting conversation.

When the very rich donate, they are just giving numbers.

Everybody’s got claws.

Two problems with most origin of life scenarios:
1. Life magically pops up completely formed.
2. Life magically survives a hostile environment without any evolved protection.

Part of the exhilaration and excitement of visiting news places is the introduction of new bacteria into your gut biome.

You are a beautiful woman in any language!

When we consider new ideas we solve old problems.

For everything under our Sun – and many others – the sci-fi novel, “Writings in Science, a History of the Future.”

The music business is auto tuned!

1% of musicians make 70% of the money. That means that 1% should contribute 70% of the money given to charity by musicians.

Reason is a fog harvester.

Isle of “U”.

I’m old enough to remember when country music was country music

Dallas, the provincial capital of the US?

I’ve got to make things right, or every thing’s wrong.

His Latin name is Dali Surrealius!

In the 70s music split into either sappy or psychotic (all melody or all beat.) The best music is the combination of both.

Most think that if a painting doesn’t look like a photograph it isn’t art. We need art ed in schools desperately.

Spring, like an itch!

Top of Their Field and Favorites

April 8, 2018

Dear Reader,

Through my 25 years, and 200 issues of the arts and media zine Musea (1992-now), I’ve met many excellent musicians, painters, writers, photographers, filmmakers, etc.

Here are some that are personal favorites, but I also think that they are at the top of their field and they deserve world recognition for their achievements.

Gregory K. H. Bryant – art

David McGhee – photography

Sara Niemietz and Snuffy Walden – music

Michael Helsem – writing

Scott Jacob Loehr – music

Ace Backwards – blogging.

Sparrow – poetry.

David Darling – science website, writing.

TYT, The Young Turks – online news.

The Best!

The Box – 1990 Musea Prediction.

March 13, 2018

Musea’s article in 1990, suggested something like i-pads, and google glasses long before you could buy one.

The Box. #64. Back in February 1990, I suggested my vision of the future of computers. I saw them condensing all into one box that was all these things; a phone, jukebox, radio, TV, gallery, library, camera, typewriter, printer, journal, etc.

Then in the last line I suggested that all of this would someday be reduced to a screen on a pair of glasses! That vision came true with smart phones, i-pads; and, 23 years later, with Google Glass, 2013.

(This quote is from Musea #200 a history of the first 200 issues.)

Channeling!

Rainy days are always colder.

Don’t skim the words, let them sink.

Corporations paint themselves as angels of mercy in ads, but sometimes they’re monsters of greed in reality.

If matter slows down time, then time speeds up matter.

If the world is flat, why is there wind?

“Oh, I didn’t notice you without your cleavage!”

Most sci-fi takes you back to a more barbarian society, not ahead to a more advanced one.

Laughter is a universal concept. All languages have a word for turkey- necked, pin-head!

#HeyRichHowMuchIsEnough

I call my robot, Rusty!

Hollywood has become corporated!

I’m getting nowhere and I’m arriving on time!

Some of this food doesn’t translate.

Inner beauty? How do you put makeup on that?

Scattered events led to surprising outcomes.
