Letter to Mary Anne Alhadeff

Letter to Mary Anne Alhadeff

To Mary Anne Alhadeff
President and CEO of North Texas Public Broadcasting.

Will not support KERA or KXT. Will ask my readers to not support them too.

For 25 years you have gone out of your way to block all the news and progressive ideas and innovative artists of every kind from Dallas, Texas, and across the country.

You have blocked news of the issues covered by the Dallas zine Musea, a publication in print and online about the arts and media since 1992.

You have blocked the thousands of Dallas musicians, painters, filmmakers, writers, we have supported.

You have blocked the media innovations we have advocated.

You have blocked the progressive ideas we have printed about in the arts and media in Dallas, and across the country.

You have blocked coverage of most serious arts and media issues.

This link is 200 pages of other reasons, in this history of Dallas art and media since 1992. http://www.musea.us/Musea200.htm

The Art Market

August 31, 2017

Many times I have railed against the art establishment. Maybe it’s time to hear from another voice.

Here is a video by “Adam Ruins Everything.”

Sayings of Editor Art

August 12, 2017

You don’t have to approve the message, just allow the discussion.

I wonder how much of NYC art is just hustling rich donors.

Don’t you dare say you support musicians if you allow 1% to make 70% of all the money and you are fine with that!

Everybody writes, nobody reads!

Don’t pave a rut!

Isn’t gravity a perpetual energy machine?

Which is more probable, a one time pop up of 5 or so linked chemical steps that each have to occur in the proper order in a hostile environment that they are not protected in and that would quickly destroy each step, OR a chemical selection over millions of years of UV radiation?

When any media covers the scandal of the few to avoid covering the issues of millions, then it is fake news.

Think people are anal
Fat people are bossy
This little maxim is a major clue to many health discoveries.

House of Thorns: A house where the women don’t get along.

Which better protects our country, health care for all or more military spending for wars over there?

Too much of modern art is just bad surrealism 100 years out of date.

We’re going on a dragon/unicorn hunt. (An outing with no purpose.)

There are about 50 people in the world that can write good music and I’m one of them.

Music MEDIA, what will you do? Report on the cutting edge of the change in music, or ride the coat tails of corporate music with another irrelevant press release.

There is not a lot of think tanks trying to end poverty. That is another problem for think tanks to solve.

Time for a rainbow.

More Sayings of Editor Art

July 13, 2017

Here are more sayings of Musea’s Editor Art

Why do you think the world gets so excited about a new great book, record, or film; but no one cares about a new great painting? All are mass produced except the painting.

When you are cold, nothing else matters.

Too many think that art is a trendy marketing scheme.

Do you think your knife cuts water?

This generation supports progressive politicians; but won’t support progressive musicians, painters, writers, filmmakers that are trying to make the arts better; and instead accepts without question the most corporate art, controlled by the very few mega corporations.

Cotton Candy Talk (empty talk that sounds sweet.)

Trump is our environment president, he’s preserved the swamp.

Each great family has a torch bearer.

Power is like a rug under your feet on a waxed floor.

Too many business executives use their company as a shield to hide their profiteering. The company takes the blame and the business executive leaves with millions.

Go to bed hungry, wake up hungry.

Music can mean anything. Lyrics lock it in.
