Musea History – the First Website

Readers, The following is the first page of the first Musea Website posted in the 90′s. It’s a general welcome to all. It was retrieved through the WAYBACK MACHINE, the internet archives. (the Musea website is at Musea.us or look up the article about me in Wikipedia)

————————————–

Once upon a time
In a Prairie Town
On the edge of a pine forest
In the hot summer of 1992…

I, Tom Hendricks,
A Musician, Painter and Writer,
Was slipping into nowhere
At a steady pace – then…
An idea…a fantabulous idea-
Musea was born…

HELLO AND WELCOME to the website for the zine MUSEA. We’re the monthly newsletter that is leading the ART REVOLUTION AGAINST the handful of CORPORATE ART AND MEDIA CONGLOMERATE WEASELS (there are only 10* now) who control virtually all of the arts and media in the U.S.; and we are FOR the best of all the “Indie” (independent) artists outside of corporate art…

Thanks for stopping by and browsing, and tell your friends about MUSEA. the zine for ART and the ART REVOLUTION.
Musea since 1992.

3 Golden Ages in the Arts

February 1, 2020

3 Golden Ages in the Arts

From 1990 to 2020 there was a golden age of technology but no golden age of content in the arts. The mainstream mega corporations invented new tech, but couldn’t find content to fill them!

Through the last 30 years there has been a consolidation of companies connected to the arts and media into fewer and fewer hands. This consolidation has ruined almost all the arts from music, writing, and art, to film, theater, and dance.

But there are these 3 exceptions. They all have something in common. They all developed outside the control of the giant media art conglomerates. That means that in every case thousands competed, not 5 or so mega corporations like in the mainstream generic arts.

These three still remain unappreciated and underreported by the mainstream media.

Here are 3 that stand out for me.

1. Zines. The late 80s and 90s were the last golden age of literature before the net.
2. Online bloggers, and original youtube channels, are the new radio and TV. 3. The Korean wave of both K-Pop and K-Dramas developed innovative music and TV / films.

Sayings of Editor Art!

January 21, 2020

X: Wow, you are a Renaissance Man!
Y: I’m not THAT old

Musicians, are you D-Pop and for all musicians or for the Big 3 Labels: Warner, Universal, Sony?

D-Pop is music where the song is most important; not fame, millions spent on production or the number of background dancers in your video?

Naughty or Nice – it’s not a multiple choice!

We’ve had 30 years of technical innovations in the arts. Now it’s time for a golden age of content!

Have you ever had a dream that you were sleepy?

My wallet is a one way street.

The accountants run Hollywood and it shows.

3 companies, The Big 3 Labels, run music, have ruined it, and have got to go. Share the news!

The person who uses religion to hurt others is a monster!

Why does time have speed limits; velocity up to the speed of light.

a franchise is a product not a film.

Ulysses by James Joyce, abridged version.
Buck Mulligan
came bearing
a bowl of lather.

I’d ask you to grow old with me, but I’m already there!

Everyone wants to record an album cut – no one wants to record a hit!

I write my children’s books for me. Kid’s opinions just get in the way.

I like this novel! It doesn’t bog down with good writing!

When a business makes excessive profits, it’s either in a banner year or it’s cheating someone.Sad to report that this recording’s sophistication will be lost on all but the most discriminating and refined tonal palettes!

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.)
