3 Points to the Music Revolution

February 27, 2020

Here are 3 major points to the music revolution:

1. Pennies for play – pay for every click anywhere online.
2. D – Pop Music – the only thing that matters is the song.
3. Big 3 Labels – 3 CEOs have ruined music – take it back.

Small Houses and Rich Neighborhoods

May 25, 2019

SMALL HOUSES and RICH NEIGHBORHOODS

By now, everyone recognizes the need for low cost housing. Small homes are perfect for seniors, singles, or couples just starting out. They are also houses that architects love to design. So who’s against?

Rich Neighborhoods are against. The problem is when there are too many small houses together it lowers the value of richer homes around them. The wealthy protect their neighborhoods from the influx of smaller homes because they usually house poorer people, that bring down the worth of their larger homes.

The solution is half and half.

The solution is to allow for mini houses to be built anywhere, but in limited numbers. That means a nice neighborhood would get 2-5, not hundreds of small houses. That would be good for both sides.

The rich would retain the wealth of their homes and have access to housing for parents, and kids.
The poor would have access to housing they can buy. And it would help eliminate segregated ghettos of poor people.

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.
