Basics of the Music Industry Now!

September 23, 2019

Basics of the Music Industry Now!

1. Nothing is selling, so all musicians tour.

2. The average ticket price is $90, so only the biggest acts can tour.

3. 3 CEOs, from the Big 3 Labels, control music, prop up their old acts, and music never changes.

The NPR Public Editor has got to Go!

May 9, 2019

The Public editor has time to talk about a theme song switch on one morning news show, but won’t talk about NPR’s policy that blocks all mention of the entire music revolution where thousands and thousands of musicians are against the Big 3, the three old men, no women, that control the entire music industry.

Time for a new Public Editor, one who covers our serious concerns, and goes beyond this lite coverage.

This PE has become a watchdog for NPR, not listeners. We need someone new.

Safe Earth … not yet!

May 2, 2019

We don’t live on a safe Earth yet.
Too many people can’t be free without being afraid of consequences for their actions, actions that most nations feel are the rights for all people.
Be safe till we all can be safe.

Videos? Maybe it’s time to give them a rest and get back to the audio, the music!

When you have to spend thousands to make a video, that means 99% of musicians can’t have careers. It’s a way to keep the music corporate, generic, and bland. TeXas Video Showdown, the worst video ever made, on purpose; protests all this and the fact that only 3 men control the music industry (CEO’s from Warners, Sony, Universal) When was the last time you heard a musician protest anything in the music business?

What if you are a great musician, but you don’t want to spend 100 thousand on a video?
What if you are a great musician but don’t like teen pop that always sounds the same?
What if you are a great musician but you don’t support the 3 CEO’s that control the music business?
