POEMS

1 [Poem for WIS, Writings In Science, a sci-fi novel in progress]

The rocket looked

like an ocean liner

under the higher

full lit Moon.

"Ahoy! Ahoy!

all you travelers,

lost in space

and long from home."

2 [a personal favorite]

I

like a moth

move

toward the flame.

Musea Art Contest for 2/20/12 Our 500th Contest

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:



My 6-TH CD release party was last week (Thursday night on the Hunkasaurus website), and this week's question was about my music. Lots of strings attached!



In 1967 a local group in Tyler, Texas, was going to record a song I'd written, then titled "Your Lovin' Trip" - it was the late 60's remember. Complication arose and they couldn't do it. The guitar player for the Tyler group, Doug Rhone, later went on…

DEMOCRATIC ROMANCES

Buried at sea wrapped up nice and neat,

Still with eastern nations we won’t find peace,

For in meaningless military advances, we take violent chances,

Selling out on the world stage a dance of democratic  romances.

American dreams now lie in Las Vegas with a mini-lady liberty,

Yet extremists hate us for our foreign Orwellian policies,

not our flocking to topless spring break beaches I  Florida,

but our attempt to police middle eastern cities…

Zine Appreciation Blog. <3

I want to take a minute to talk about some zine happenings. 

 

I tabled my distro at a first friday art and trunk show at the beginning of the month. Bad timing, I guess, or not the right venue. It was super loud, and not a lot of people were familiar with the concept of zines, or were too busted by the $10 cover to buy anything more than drinks. Which, ok. It was definitely a learning experience. I learned a lot about about tabling. Initially, I had been concerned that I…

Musea Contest for Online CD Release Party Week

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:

While Melanie Pruit is covering the Oscars for her blog, and letting Musea in on it, we have an indie film question for all. This 1999 horror film really had a bare bones budget ranging from $25,000-$60,000. One site said, the film (was) shot for $35,000 on a camera bought at Wal-Mart (and subsequently returned for a refund)!. It went on to gross almost 250 mill. Now that's an indie film with legs! Name the…

mid-winter blahs

I'm trying to get not one but TWO zines cranked out for Chicago Zine Fest and I'm about halfway on the one and maybe a quarter on the other. It's really difficult, I haven't written much (maybe 5 pages in the last week and a half) and all my layouts/lettering/ideas/illustrations are just turning out crappy. I decided last night I'm going to regroup and redouble my efforts into making the one zine as awesome as possible and leaving the other one behind for right now. I'm just not really in…
