The 3 Songs Every Band Had to Learn in 1964
Dear Reader, let me take you back….
1964. The Beatles swept over us teens. Every boy among us started thinking about getting guitars, and starting a band. We started with standard guitars (cheaper) and graduated to electric, with some going to drums, and some rare ones going to bass.
What to play?
There were 3 songs that every band had to learn. It was like an audition set:
1. Gloria (Them, or Shadows of the Night… Continue

Hello! My name is Alex, and I am here because I love zines. I recently completed my first issue of Youth On The Run and I need some help. I would love to have a zine i can hand out for free, but I didn't realize how expensive it was to print zines! I started a kickstarter project in hopes of funding my zine to be able to print the first issue. If this zine sounds like something you would be interested in please donate! Any contribution is appreciated and rewarded! :)

Incompetence of the Town of Smithfield Continue
Smithfield is a small community that is a nice quiet place to relax, play and live. Our town was incorporated on February 29, 1840 making it "Maine's only Leap Year Town". There are many things that make this town an enjoyable place, but lately the people hired in the town office have made it a difficult place to live. Specifically the selectmen Richard A. Moore, Dale M. Churchill, and Justin S. Furbush have chosen to neglect their responsibilities…

Sayings (of Editor Art)
Here’s some more sayings from Musea’s editor Art S Revolutionary:
If banks can be too big to fail, so can the American people
(On the Walt Disney Concert Hall – architect Frank Gehry) I prefer a little less Goofy.
(On contrarians) Don’t be a lawyer, don’t be a red pen, don’t be a footnote.
(On movements against science) And Galileo is still in Jail!

The Quizzicals take the hill
The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
What did the Wizard of Oz (in the book – not the movie) give to the Scarecrow to keep his brains sharp? Clue: the answer is in the “Little Wizard Stories of Oz” from 1914,
IS, Pins and Needles to keep his brains sharp!
I had no correct eligible answers. Seems your pin cushion came up empty!
I don’t dumb down so please wise up.
Now on to a new Q.: Win a… Continue

The Art Revolution that I have advocated over the last 2 decades has grown so big, it's hard to summarize for those new to it. This reprint from the 2008 issue helps. It is also a series of short videos on youtube.

FOUR BIOLOGICAL STEPS In Childhood Development;
We often suggest steps to help children have happy lives . But most don't take into consideration our biological needs. Here are 4 that I believe, should be included.
1. Vaginal birth.
2. Breast feeding
1. The mother transfers her gut bacteria to the child through vaginal birth. If the newborn is denied that type of birth, then that child does not have the full gut biome he… Continue

From recent reading and studying I'm beginning to think that weaning is a major time of infant development.
This loss of breast milk, may be a biological step - albeit a traumatic one - to trigger the infant to start his own immune system.
Those fed with formula, don't have this step, and never went through this, They have never developed this bio stage - of learning how to react to loss of needed fat and other concentrated nurturing (loss of breast milk). Which would force… Continue

Dear Reader, this week's Musea email Club message is titled, The Great Divide In Art
THE GREAT DIVIDE IN ART
There is a great divide in art. It’s been going on for over 100 years. It’s time to end it.
The first major divide in modern art was when the Impressionists broke away from the French Salon and it’s type of painting. From then to now, there has been an understood divide in art that implies that

(inspired by an illustration by Jessica Walsh)
I finally understand
how computers really work.
the button that you push
is the first domino.
And behind the facade
it pushes yet another,
and that pushes another
and so forth down the line;
until at the end
you've issued a command,
which trips another
row of dominoes
to fall down in line
to finish the task.
Want some proof?
Shake your… Continue
