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.

I’ve had a 50 year head start (on the public.)

Nature is moving faster than we are! (Climate change.)

The man makes his case – the woman judges.

The museum of architecture was like a Russian doll.

Who keeps the blanket warm?

My first favorite flavor is chocolate. My 2nd favorite is double chocolate!

What ever happened to one hit wonders?

Am I spoiled? I’d say 99%. It’d be 100% but not everyone bows!

Settle for nothing, or activate for change.

Anemic automaton audio

The first of anything is not conservative.
The second of anything is not a trail blazer
Numbers count / position.

Kidnapped people have happier faces than that!

The Big 3 make more money through their lawyers than their musicians!

If this music doesn’t tear at your hear, you haven’t got one.

Science has become our most reliable seer of the future.

I’m writing an art book –
I’m drawing a play.

Paper only understands two things: rocks and scissors!

Money can buy a smile, but not a heart.

The best playwrights write not for Broadway, but for cable tv

Flowers made of iron? Flexibility is strength too!

I’ve only got one head, but two headaches!

No matter how cold, there is a fat guy in shorts.

There are two quick ways to divide the Beatles career:
The rock n roll first half, the art songs 2nd half.
The John singles first half; the Paul singles 2nd half.

Don’t smoke! There I have saved your life!

According to K-Dramas, half of South Korea are orphans, and the other half are looking for them.

Sometimes I’m beside myself and have to move over.

More quiet than a tumbleweed at rest.

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

CEOs that don’t support universal health care, are forcing their company to pay massive health care bills. How does that make business sense?

Fact: 99% of car emissions come from cars waiting to turn left on busy streets.

You are a pawn in their game, but a queen in your own.

The economy is mostly what is happening to rich people’s money.

Economic grow is mostly trickle down economics.

Modern art: hybrid of grotesque and trendy.

Art is more than pencil photography

The problem with realism is that all the works look alike.

His stories were so dark, he couldn’t see a thing!

You shouldn’t use your crutch for a crutch.

VISION POEMS

(What is a Vision Poem – see below*)

I built a birdhouse then
he built one for me.

you live
somewhere else
don’t you?

Gum for mortar!

the songbird
stopped singing
turned his head to the Sun
setting…

“You can’t just run wild!”
said I to my listening toys.

3 Blues
for your portrait!

I lived in Scotland
until a sudden
noise shattered
my daydream!

The Church of Spring Blossoms

The “Magic mountain”
children’s version!

My Zen calendar
burnt up!
What day is that?

look in …
any direction!

*What is a VISION POEM?
WARNING: This is not ‘Poetry 101’. This is advanced. Vision Poetry does not rhyme (most of the time), and it’s not what you are used to. If for any reason, after reading two or three of these short poems, you don’t ‘GET IT’; please, fold up the zine page , replace it on the stack where you found it, and slowly back away from your computer.

Now that we’ve gotten rid of the neophytes, let’s continue. Vision poems are part koan, part hallucination, part vision, slightly enlightening, and peppered with occasional eureka moments. They are word pictures, dreams, fantasies, jokes, lightning strikes, and kafkaesque situations. Read them with a sense of adventure. Then see if the startling images – somewhat like what a painter might see in his mind before beginning his new work – suggests anything deeper or more profound. Enjoy and let me hear what you think.

Direction in Evolution

December 20, 2018

Read any biology text and it’ll say the same thing:

THERE IS NO DIRECTION TO EVOLUTION.
THERE IS NO DIRECTION TO NATURAL SELECTION.

But I say that is WRONG. I say there is a direction to evolution, and I think that once I tell you, you will agree and prove the textbooks are not correct.

The process of evolution always goes toward better CATABOLIC, and, ANABOLIC processes.

Natural selection does not select worse CATABOLIC, or ANABOLIC processes..

(This is also in my sci-fi novel, “Writings In Science, a History of the Future.”)

Take this further:

Mutation that is positive to a catabolic process will enhance anabolic processes.
Mutation that is negative to a catabolic process will be mitigated by anabolic processes – and vice versa. So not only is there a direction to evolution, but there is support from the other half of the catabolic or anabolic processes when mutations happen.
