For the most part, zines, the best writing of an entire generation was wiped clean from history. Glad to see this token article – way too late.
Rare to see anything ever from any media source on zines.
My zine, Musea started in 1992 and is still going well. During those early years, I saw a golden age of writing, a new style of writing that combined it with book making, and the last major writing golden age before the internet.
So I started the ZHOF, or Zine Hall Of Fame
Recent Christmas issue of Musea
Musea Readers, For many months I’ve suggested to The Dissident Rag on facebook, that they include theater workers in their discussion of low wage workers. Today 8/31/15 they did, by reposting the blog entry below.
Thanks to them, and may it force Hollywood to be a part of the low wage debate!
Personally, I worked at the Inwood Theater in Dallas from 1990-2014. The last years it was owned by billionaire Mark Cuban. His policy was the same as all theater policies towards workers. Lowest wages, few if any full time workers – which would eliminate most benefits, etc. etc.
There is no reason for the film industry to be just about the only industry to get away with this – specially when Hollywood goes out of it’s way to brag about how many millions they made in box office every week. See link for more.

I watch and watch
he’s ever closer
he knows it too
he’s just about there

Three reasons the Texas Media should cover the Texas Video Showdown:
1. This is a creative way to invigorate the music industry, that many say has reached an all time low.
2. This is Texas Music, that you say you support.
3. By dismissing the Video Showdown, you marginalize creative music, Texas music, and you end up supporting the status quo, the generic pop stars and corporate music that is doing so much harm to good musicians.
You vote against Texas, and creative music.
What is the Texas Video Showdown?
Texas Video Showdown: Hunkasaurus versus Taylor Swift, Madonna, Katy Perry, Beyonce, Bieber, 1D, and other very few corporate stars.
Hunkasaurus and his cheap bad video with his beat up standard guitar, and no giant set behind him but a blank wall, has challenged Taylor Swift, Madonna, Katy Perry, Beyonce, Bieber, 1D and their very expensive recent videos, to a video showdown.
Hunkasaurus says his video is not as pretty or trendy or well produced, or as filled with famous people, but that it is better music, because it’s just music – one take, one guitar, one revolution. So far he is winning in first voting.
Vote now with thumbs up for Hunkasaurus, or a thumbs down for the Pop Stars
This is why there is a music revolution going on called Postism music out of Dallas. Some of these musicians are changing music history with some possible world’s firsts; while these pop stars seem to be most interested in publicity and a generic sound.
