Videos

March 9, 2019

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?

Ralph Nader looks at NPr and PBS

February 19, 2019

Dear Reader,

Search out the link for “The Realized Temptation of NPR and PBS” by Ralph Nader. He addresses a lot of my concerns in their media fairness. I would add that the problem includes all their art coverage too.
Right now all songs are NOT considered, and they actively block any progressive music, musicians, or music ideas connected with the music revolution.

When Major Brands Fail, Everyone Wins

January 14, 2019

When major brands fall, everyone wins!

Boomers got most of their advertising from 3 TV networks and a single local newspaper. So the companies that controlled ads on those outlets became major brands, got mega big, began to lobby and then control the government as they pushed out competition.

But Millennials don’t have that brand loyalty because they didn’t have that concentrated brand onslaught – and they look to the internet for info, not the networks, not a local newspaper.

That break down of major brands means, a breakdown of major corporations that have ruled too much for too long; and in doing so, they have more and more limited everything to control more.

Specifically in the arts, this change will go a long way in opening the door to thousands of companies competing in music, publishing, film, media, etc. etc. etc.

Look to a break down of the big, and an opening door for all the rest of us.
