Sayings of Editor Art

January 3, 2019

Boomers and Gen-X have turned music over to 3 CEOs who ruined it. Millennials, it’s up to you to take it back!

Musicians, 21/2 minute songs are taut, dramatic, and well structure; 4+ long and I’m tired of it on first listen!

I’d give the odds of that happening at …. Fat Chance!

CDs are too long. No one wants to hear an hour of anyone!

Lingerie to make Christmas bright? GM gives out pink slips!

Novel in 6 words: The Moon looks for her still.

Novel first line: “Can only adults solve mysteries?” asked pale skinned, long black haired Audrey.

The museum of architecture was like a Russian doll.

Anemic automaton audio

The first of anything is not conservative.
The second of anything is not a trail blazer

Hard hitting journalism is now replaced by 4 word journalism, “What do you think?”
(or worse, “What do you feel?”)

Economic grow is mostly trickle down economics.

Sayings of Editor Art (the ongoing hundreds.)d

October 5, 2018

When you are a puppet of someone else, strings are attached.

Why does anyone – in their right mind – think that all aliens have 20th century Earth morals?

The more you support others when you can, the more others will support you when you can’t.

(In your case) Think before you speak…. and THEN change your mind!

Where love arrives tragedy lurks nearby.

When corporations have the upper hand, music and musicians suffer. When musicians have the upper hand, music flourishes and musicians do better.

You’ve got a lot of nerve …. but surprisingly little spine!

This isn’t a glass ceiling, it’s a glass sky!

I’ll be your sailor for shore!

That’s confusing on so many levels!

My milk said it was going bad today, and it kept its word.

“Hello” means a new start.

Stupid is great – you are always right!

Everybody loves the wrong person.

Corporations by their very nature are built to make modest profits after expenses. If they are making large profits they are either in a boom period or cheating their customers, workers, suppliers, etc.

we have a love/hate relationship; I love her, she hates me!

What was destroyed by UV did NOT make life – a major clue to the OOL.

She was born under a bad star and a dark cloud under that!

When you live alone and leave a mess it waits for you!

Lots of magic in that pencil!

Bands are not the new anything!

Uninformed? Uniformed? How did you get an “Y” sound out of that?

Mercury Retrograde – the stop sign in the sky!

Twelve Rules for Making a Hollywood Movie

September 6, 2018

Dear Reader, This week let’s have some fun with Hollywood!

TWELVE RULES FOR MAKING A HOLLYWOOD MOVIE

1. Vocal coaches must instruct all actors to whisper or scream all lines, ‘… like they do in real life!’

2. Aging male stars must date starlets.

3. Films must fit one of three formats:

Kids = cartoon movies
Women = love stories with a wedding at the end.
Men = action heroes with lots of special effects.

4. Must spend over 50 million to advertise film – this stuff won’t sell itself!

5. There must be conflict. If the character buys a loaf of bread the clerk, a total stranger, has to scowl, hassle, and oppose him at every turn, ’cause that’s reality!

6. Keep the following out of your film, seniors, children, teens, people of color, happily married couples, and women in leadership positions; unless they are plot points; but even then, never dwell on them!

7. All characters must come from broken homes like the screenwriters do!

8. Movie posters must be cluttered with a list all thousand of the executive producers, regular producers, directors, etc. to emphasize the personal vision of the writer.

9. Dumb down everything except for a single plot point surprise at the end.

10. Bystanders must never get involved and have to act like frozen props! Make sure that minor characters act exceptionally stubborn and stupid to move the plot along!

11. Originality is extremely important – specially in sequels, and remakes.

12. Theater employees that sell the tickets and popcorn, must continue to get the lowest wages and benefits allowed by law. Though Hollywood walks the red carpet, theater workers must be swept under it!
