The lost gospel of St. Paco

Like an inward reflection of the imaginative collage cover produced by the author, graffiti writer and underground publisher St. Paco, Distant God Meditation is a multi-layered manuscript that brims with the fluid poems and rhymes of a drunk, cigar-smoking…

Musea Art Contest 6/19/12

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

Picasso was our most prolific painter by far. But who was our second most

Poems written in June 2012

Comments welcome.

at night

the window's dark

waiting... waiting...

for the sun.


I jump around

from stone to stone

pretty black rocks

in a sea of blue

I woke up sweating

and shivering too

Musea Art Contest 6/11/12

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

In every album I make, I try to have at least one "BIG" song. That's a song that builds from a quiet and simple start to a very dramatic ending. 'Peace Sign' is my 6-TH's album's big song. It ends with the longest held note on any of my recordings. When I was done, I had to repeat it 2 more times for the background vocals!!! The song is about peace songs that I loved in the late 60's. 4 are mentioned or quoted from or…
