But I Can Search Out the Music I like

July 19, 2017

For those of you who think all is well if YOU can search out the musician you like. Read this:

Many seem to settle for all the arts to be ruined because of business demands for profit. And they allow their favorite musicians, writers, artists, filmmakers to be marginalized out of fair reviews and careers.

For some reason, too many now think that if THEY can search out and find an elusive great talent, that is enough. It is not.

Virtually every talented musician, painter, writer, filmmaker, etc is making about what amounts to minimum wage. Great talent should be the most celebrated, not the most marginalized and cheated out of fair compensation for their honest talent.

The history of art has never been like this before. The best art has always been the most talked about, written about, and reviewed. The entire arts and media world is upside down.

Reader, don’t you dare say you support the arts when you allow so few to make all the money, with thousands and thousands of artists making about as much as minimum wage – on a good day!

That is why the art revolution to change it. Which side are you on?

Musea Will Not Support KERA (or KXT)

July 6, 2017

MUSEA will not support KERA (or KXT)

The Dallas zine Musea (monthly since 1992) cannot support KERA. We also advocate our readers not to support KERA, and we advocate that the rest of Dallas not support KERA.

For all of the last 25 years:

KERA has not reported on or supported the local and national musicians, painters, writers, filmmakers, photographers, etc.; talked about in Musea.

KERA has not reported on the ideas and solutions suggested from Musea to help all artists of all kinds here and across the country.

KERA has not reported on the ideas and solutions suggested from Musea to help make the media in Dallas better.

KERA has not reported on the ideas and solutions suggested from Musea to help make Dallas a better city.

KERA has gone out of their way to not support anything Musea talked about in 200 issues.
