Couplet of Fear!

October 30, 2016

Halloween and nothing is more frightening than a poem!


2,300 and counting

October 10, 2016

The TeXas Video Showdown has now been viewed by 2,300 people.
The purpose of the worst video ever made, is to challenge the 3CEO’s that control music, and kept it from changing or growing.

Join this music revolt, or start your own!

TeXas Video Showdown and CD Baby Conference

July 4, 2016

Dear Reader,

Today on the 4th, a day of our country’s independence, my music protest TeXas Video Showdown, crossed another small milestone. The video has added another 100 views.

Recently I wrote to my online music distributor CD Baby about the protest. They are having a musical conference soon. I suggested that the music industry needs a change and that they should cover that at the conference.

I think unless we oppose the music industry controlled by 3 CEO’s, no CD Baby musician, or any musician anywhere has a fair chance for a career.

Here is my letter and their reply. Thanks CD Baby.


CD Baby,

Will you be discussing the music protest against 3 CEO’s running music, and only supporting teen pop?
The protest is from Dallas, supports all musicians and opposes a music industry down to 3 companies that control 80%.

Hope you will. That change alone would help everyone have a chance at a career.
Sometimes a little protest brings vitality to the music industry. It sure could use it now.

This post is about the 3 men that control all the music.
That is not an exaggeration, it is a fact.

Here is the video

Here is a blog post about it.
