Media Watchdogs keep Bad Media in the Spotlight and Good Media Marginalized.

May 23, 2020

Media Watchdogs you keep bad media in the spotlight and good media marginalized!

MEDIA WATCHDOGS in one sense enables bad media to continue. By calling them out you bring attention to them, that should better be on those indie media that are doing media right. Those you neglect mentioning, you help keep marginalized while you keep the bad media in the center of attention and top dogs in firm position.

It’s Snow nice Tom. Lovely picture you paint and I like the way to mix up guitar parts for variation. Good one.

Beautifuk Tom. Really liking the arpeggiated guitar bit in the softer parts, huge dynamic play in this and you know I’m a sucker for big dynamics. Just about the point where I’m missing pet dog’s toe tapping rhythm, here it is! This song has it all for me, and it sounded like snow to boot – actually, you know what – it reminded me very strongly of the Peanuts Christmas special soundtrack at first. Unusual soubd from you, you wear it well my friend!!

Lovely song Tom, nice to hear a nice quiet tune that hits the spot, you don’t have to bust your lungs apart for people to hear you.

Nice one Tom, nicely sung & performance

Curious one this, I really like the verse and chorus structures independently, but I think you could transition between the two parts more fluidly. The tune’s quite short so I think there’s room to do that without impacting on what is essentially a really nice song. Regardless, an enjoyable listen

Interesting progression and resolves challenge the listener, a terseness and complicated mix of major sevenths, diminished and inversions. It had a lot of uplift in the chorus, to me just the chorus could be the whole song in a way. Original and new, well done.

Magical!

Yip it’s another good one, and like the change, but the timing is out between the two and it jars. That said, I really liked this lyrically and melodically. Simply, you write great songs. 🙂

I like the structural and melodic components in this one. I sense infancy in the delivery but its an enjoyable listen with some depth in composition !!

Great dynamics change to the strumming. Love your choice of chords and melodies. Lovely lyrics too. A love song with mystery to it.

3 Points to the Music Revolution

February 27, 2020

Here are 3 major points to the music revolution:

1. Pennies for play – pay for every click anywhere online.
2. D – Pop Music – the only thing that matters is the song.
3. Big 3 Labels – 3 CEOs have ruined music – take it back.

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.
