Sayings of Editor Art

March 19, 2017

More and more as the world becomes civilized it is upset not by a nation of jerks, or a gang of jerks, but a single jerk – what I call the jerk in the room.

These wily politician’s strategy is to make sure the rich keep all the money, while they support the social issues of the poor to keep them distracted from their greed.

T: I came from the east side of Chicago – the LAKE DISTRICT.

I’ve had months to digest it and it’s still giving me heartburn.

They not only threw us under the bus, they threw us under the back of the bus!

He doesn’t have a six pack, he has a keg.

Don’t stretch outside your argument. Don’t carry a specific thought outside its realm of accuracy. Keep it focused.

He can be a jerk sometimes but … wait that’s all I got.

Hurry up the oven if you can.

Pitch for a movie: What if Cinderella is as cruel?

Roses look good for a few days then you have 51 weeks of thorns.

Simple is better, but bland is not enough.

Hey spelling police, we have spell checker for spelling, how about personality checker for you.

If there are parts of our history that we don’t like – that means we are growing, moving forward, getting better.

… and then it turns / the wheel of fate. (lyrics from one of my songs.)

Mainstream radio is saying loud and clear, “Texas we hate your music and will never play it, so listen to what we tell you to, buy what we advertise and shut up.

Till there are protest songs on mainstream radio, we have proof that 3 music CEO’s control the government. (CEO’s from Warners, Universal, Sony control 80% of the music industry). These three tell the government to never protest, you can only sing our tune.

Dallas is a good place for the future.

You shouldn’t film a good song, you should play it.

Till Mickey Mouse is in the Public Domain, corporations control the government. Disney tells the government to jump and they say how high Mickey?

Modern art has become a trendy clique. But art is too important to be reduced to that.

More news and views from Musea’s Editor Art S. Revolutionary. (musea.us)

Talent takes you to the top, but hard work can get you to the professional level.

What dark cloud did you step down from?

One thing modern art is not, is charming.

Child: All these sculptures are in black and white!

Phogiston has a future! (from my sci-fi novel WIS).

The 20th century was a century of experimentation in art. Now in the 21st we can choose from all those styles and or start one of our own.

This is the greatest sci-fi novel ever written, and I’m being humble!

Election sum up, Tweedle Dumb and Tweedle Delete.

CBA’s, Community Bank Accounts, will end poverty but are not welfare. They are another method of economic development. Most economic development supports rich companies then trickles down. CBA’s are economic development from the poor and builds up. CBA’s are better for more people at less cost.

Remembering is easier than forgetting.

Sayings of Editor Art – Another Batch

Tommy Says: I laughed, I cried, I ran the gambit.

Didn’t like your novel – too wordy!

The media is an ambulance with a microphone.

Take what you need, and give back when you don’t

Most solutions are taken too far until they cause problems of their own.

Beware a trail of chocolate!

The people that are the most sociable always have a patter that keeps others at bay.

Peeling tape never gets better.

Wherever she is is a safe corner for me
