The Noise Stopped … (poem)

April 22, 2019

The Noise Stopped

The noise stopped.
The sky was still.
One lone soldier
marched over the hill.
He shuffled his feet,
he had a blank look.
I saw him pass
and then there were more.

All dressed in grey
and covered with dirt,
kicking up dust
as each one passed.
The battle was over!
The march of the dead.

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.
