MUSEA’S 70 FILM IDEAS and SUMMARIES
http://www.musea.us/119issue.html

MUSEAD – an Art Center for all the Arts. Musea issues #71, #144, #150, and #170.
Musead, the art center, is one big idea. In it’s largest version, it is an art complex the size of a major amusement park for both adults and children. I have suggested this version of Musead be the size of an ocean liner! In a Plan B, Musead would be the size of a normal art center with three main rooms: a stage and cafe, a shop, and a museum.

January 14, 2017

The 24 year old Dallas arts and media zine, MUSEA, has just released it’s special 200th issue (Not the usual 8 pages but 100 pages this time).

Here is a celebration of 200 indie artists featured in Musea, And an underground history of Dallas arts over the last 25 years.

Reader, YOU WILL FIND THE ANSWERS TO ALL THESE QUESTIONS AND MORE:

Why did shock jock Russ Martin tie me to a chair with duct tape? Why did Frank Zappa call KNON while I was working there?
Which Musea cover was printed upside down?
Why was my $1,000,000 Collage at 500 X titled Janet Kutner Writes Daffy Reviews. Where was the best deep dish in Deep Ellum?
Why was the Inwood Theater gassed that night?
Why couldn’t the TV repairman hook Stanley Marcus up to cable? Did Musea find a photo of Cy Twombly developing his style on a blackboard? What was in that Musea Stand Gift Box every Christmas at the Inwood? What photo from Charlton Heston’s wife, did Musea run on one of our Covers? Is one of my zine friends perhaps the Best Painter around?
Why did Dallas Luxury Magazine run a full page picture of me? What were Inwood Box Office Concerts?
What did Drive in Movie Critic, Joe Bob Briggs say about Musea? What happened when H. L. Hunt wanted to buy a photograph of himself for $10? Why was I forced out of the Inwood Theater after working there for 24 years? What did Maximum Rock n Roll say about the AACA logo?
Where did the Esquire Theater’s Neon Painter’s Palette end up? Which unassuming Dallas writer/artist wrote the next Pascal’s, Pensees? How did Musea get in the center of a Dallas Morning News, Dallas Observer feud. Who praised Mary Parker for sculptural reliefs from plumbing parts? Which 12 By 12 musician recently had a single of his, sell on Ebay for $887.77? What was Joe Christ like in person?
What musicians recorded a song of mine, then went on to national fame as a trio. What does Musea know about Slack?
When does the Midnight Movie start?
Why did my fellow workers ask David Byrne for his autograph for me? Which music engineer did I work with that had a Gold Record on her office wall? What happened when a stage hand moved Ray Charles mike?
Was Morgan Fairchild beautiful and friendly in person?
Who seemed to need more approval, Joseph Heller, or Nora Ephron? What guitar accessory does Elvis, Jimi Hendrix, and Hunkasaurus have in common? What did Mickey Rooney say to me as he passed by at NorthPark?
Who are the five, Frida and Diego type couples, where both partners are fine artists? Did Musea find a photograph of Cinderella?

We Make Zines Online Zine Site coming to an end

September 2, 2016

Got this e-mail. Thanks to Krissy for all her hard work over 8 years.

Hi friends,
It looks like the end is near for We Make Zines as we know it. Ning, the website this social network is built on has raised the annual price from $239. to $588. and they have only given us a month’s notice!

There is no way I am going to let them charge me for the $588. on October 1st so I am going to have to delete the whole network. This is painful for me since there are so many great resources on here. I will still own the url wemakezines.com, so I am thinking I might collect some of the best information and make it available on a new website that isn’t a social network site, but since I just started a new job I don’t know how much time I will have to devote to it.

So, I would appreciate your help to save the text and images of the most important tutorials and discussions on here. Also, make sure you save your own images, copy and get contact info for people you don’t want to lose touch with.

I know this is drastic, but the only other option is for WMZ to support itself and I would have to ask every year for $588.00. I can imagine people would come through for the first year, but every year after that would be a struggle.It has already been difficult to come up with the $239.00. Also, Ning hasn’t done anything to improve the site at all which really pisses me off.

If there is a coder out there who can create a site or who knows how to transfer it, let me know. But, since so many members sign up and then seldom take part, I don’t know that transferring over 6,000 people is really the best option anyway.

We Make Zines has been the go-to place for zines since 2008. I am very sad to have to do this, but I don’t see another choice.
I’m sorry if this isn’t the most coherent message, but I wanted to get this out fast so people have time to take action.

It’s been a great 8 years. Thanks to everyone who took part and shared their love of zines. I’ll miss you all. Seeing what people do on here has always kept me inspired. Thank you,
Krissy

Musea #200 Will Be Late

April 28, 2016

Dear Readers,

The Musea for May,June, July is not going to be available in May, June, or July!
This is the first time I’ve missed a deadline, in 23 years but there are reasons, good reasons.

1. The next issue is the 200th, and I’m planning something special.

2. I’m finishing – yes I can see an end – to a 15 year old writing project, my sci-fi novel called
WRITINGS IN SCIENCE, A History of the Future in Stories, Essays, Poems and Plays.

There is a saying in the book itself that reads, “This may not be the widest sci-fi novel ever written, but it is the biggest.” That will make sense when you see it.

3. I’ve got other fun plans in the works for all things in the Musea world.

So nothing now, but plenty on the drawing boards.
Don’t forget the 199 issues that went before – most on line, or see my blogs, or music site.

“The BIG LIST – 100 Plus Favorite Music
“BIG MUSIC LIST (200 Song – First Worldwide Best Music List)
Here are 200 great tunes you probably have not heard – notice they are in all genres, from all over the world, are great songs, and stand out – not fit in like the generic pop stars. They deserve as much attention as any pop song. Then too if you don’t like say 50 or so of these, there are still 150 great ones left for even the pickiest listener. http://wp.me/p5S9X-36
