3 Reasons For You to Support the Music Revolution

April 10, 2018

3 Reasons to Support the Music Revolution

The music revolution sweeping the country came from Musea zine in Dallas. Here are 3 reasons you should support it and become a part of it.

1. You are a musician that made less than 15K last year (minimum wage), while a very few major stars make that in 2 hours. 1% of musicians make 70% of the money.

2. You are a woman. 3 CEOs control 80% of the music industry – all are men, no women allowed. Time for women to become a part of the music industry and break that glass ceiling!

3. You love good music, but hate current radio, concert prices, media that always praises the same bland musicians, best selling charts that can’t be trusted, online streaming sales that never get to the musician, and that music never changes.

Top of Their Field and Favorites

April 8, 2018

Dear Reader,

Through my 25 years, and 200 issues of the arts and media zine Musea (1992-now), I’ve met many excellent musicians, painters, writers, photographers, filmmakers, etc.

Here are some that are personal favorites, but I also think that they are at the top of their field and they deserve world recognition for their achievements.

Gregory K. H. Bryant – art

David McGhee – photography

Sara Niemietz and Snuffy Walden – music

Michael Helsem – writing

Scott Jacob Loehr – music

Ace Backwards – blogging.

Sparrow – poetry.

David Darling – science website, writing.

TYT, The Young Turks – online news.

Reasons Musea is Against Ads

April 3, 2018

Reasons I’m against ads?

Start with these 4.

1. Ads directed toward children.

2. Ads that show the company as perfect, while the customer is portrayed as a fool.

3. Corporate gathering of personal data to better target ads.

4 Advertisers often change, or censor content in the programs they sponsor.

There is a better way to support artists and to get content out of the hands of corporations and back into the hands of the content makers .

Set up an online pay for play service where clicking on a webpage pays a penny or so to access the work of the artist, musician, writer, filmmaker, architect, dancer, photographer, journalist, scientist etc.

This simple step eliminates the entire layer of corporate middlemen, allows any artist of any kind to get compensation, and allows independent media to be free of ads and pressure from sponsors.

Vision Poems

March 27, 2018

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.

began to float
rise up and
turn to stars

Year of the too close Moon.

My garden decided
it didn’t need me!

I imagined an orchard
in full bloom
and an orchard behind it
and an orchard behind it
and …

howling wind in a
haunted wood…
