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

This clothes designer opened his first boutique in NYC on 5th Ave. in 1989. The only thing displayed in the window was a sweat shirt with 4 words on it, "The Luxury is Comfort". Name that clothes designer!


Geoffrey Beene, one of my favorite fashion designers. First rate!

I had no correct eligible answers. Seems y'all were cutting across the bias on this one.

The Wake Up Alarm Clock that rings inside you daily from 6-8 AM

Here's a bio post from zine, Musea.

Your body has a wake up clock that rings from 6-8 AM every morning.

While exploring sleep, I found this body alarm clock, that evolution has set up for us. We are biologically set up to wake up between 6-8 AM due to the circadian cycle of cortisol.

I'm pretty excited because the OOAK Gallery just has it's first zine contribution arrive today: Best Dream Ever, a mini-comic by Don Picton. I don't have pictures of it up yet and I should be putting it up for sale in the distro before a few days.

Box Office Concerts at the Inwood Theater, Suspended after 17 Years.

The first and only box office concerts, at the Inwood Theater , after 17 years, have been suspended, and most likely cancelled by management.

For a decade and a half, Tom Hendricks, as "Hunkasaurus and His Pet Dog Guitar", played two shows every Tuesday and two on Wednesday, in the box office ticket booth, behind the glass.

In between shows Hendricks would sell tickets. Performances happened through both cold winter days and hot summer nights.

Breaking Music News for Zine Musea

Dear Readers,

Yesterday, Tuesday, I finished recording my 14th and last song for my new cd (10 with vocals, and 4 instrumentals). The last song was my BIG song for the album - big meaning a song that starts out slow and builds to a big ending - God Bless The Child, the song co written by Billie Holiday, with a nice 60's version by Blood Sweat and Tears.
Now on to mix, get the cover ready, etc. etc. Stay tuned!

I have had a novel and a chapbook published in the traditional way: submission, acceptance, editing, promotion. But I've been wanting to do…

Dear Musea Reader, here is a short list of some speculative ideas of mine on biology, posted on my blog. They are my own as far as I know. Time will tell which if any will be proven correct. I welcome your comments.

Sayings of Eddie Art

Sayings of Eddie Art (Art S Revolutionary, editor of Musea)
My new How-To Painting Book: How to paint ghosts, clouds that have dissipated, and thin air.

The Murky Realm

"The Murky Realm," a biographical sketch of a tragic union with some creative engineering...

My parents never should have gotten married. But even though my father was gay and my mother was chemically imbalanced, this was the 60s, when single men in their forties did not identify as queer and people with personality disorders were rarely diagnosed, much less treated. And marriage was inexorable. The tragedy, of course, is that five children came out of this…
