Conceptual art on conceptual art

April 25, 2019

This is a conceptual art piece that challenges conceptual art pieces! There is a blank piece of paper and a poem underneath that reads:

Tom Friedman made an art piece
“1,000 Hours of Staring”
(at a piece of white paper
touched only by the artist’s gaze.)
I could do the same masterpiece
in 46 minutes and 13 seconds.
Can you tell the difference?

TeXas Video Showdown.
This is the ongoing, worst video ever made… for a good reason – to support the music revolution against the 3 CEOs that have ruined it. Thousands have viewed this one over a few years. Join the music revolution by supporting this worst video ever!

Comment:

From January 6th 2017 to July 2, 2018 I have written the music to 225 songs!

That is more than 12 a month for 18 months. Brings my total to over 1,950 songs. The 225 songs are from Song #1730 – #1955.

For comparison, the Beatles wrote about 190 songs total in their career. I did more than that in 18 months, and ten times that in total so far. But are they anywhere as good? Play them and see for yourself!

(March 2019 – 2,070 songs total.)

I had planned to record many of these, but I’m not going to go into a recording studio until the music stops flowing!

So instead I’ve done some, NOT studio recordings, but rough minute demos of some of these 225 songs I call CHEAP CASSETTE DEMOS.

Please go to my youtube channel, listen to any that interest you, and give them a thumbs up (literally just lifting a finger.)
Search TomHendricksMusea or video floor at the big website.

For 150 studio recordings go to the music ‘floor’ on my website tomhendricks.us or see wikipedia.

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?

Two New Music Videos, Basket Girl, and From Me To You

February 19, 2019

Dear Readers,

Please see my youtube channel page for two new videos.
Basket Girl, is an original with Red Riding Hood overtones.
From Me To You, is the Beatle classic.

For both, I recorded the guitar separately, then sang live, to get a better mix. You will not be surprised to find there is no auto tuned vocals!
