Mention in Texas Music Magazine - new issue?

Got a good news stand where you live? There may be a mention of me in the national Texas Music Magazine, Fall issue #56. But I can't find it! Who can find a copy?

her face saddened,
her shoulders slumped,
her wings collapsed,

———

“As for me
neither honey or bee,”
sighed Sappho
in her declining years.

——–

the dew of my tears

Music down to these 5 musicians - every one else marginalized Beyonce, Beiber,....

Have you gotten the corporate memo from the Big 4 ( Universal Music Group, Sony BMG, EMI Group and Warner Music Group are collectively known as the "Big Four" majors - they control 80% of the music business).



They will only allow 5 musicians to get most of the music coverage.



Music and the music business, has been reduced to 5 auto tuned sound alikes. These 5 get more media attention than all the other musicians in the world, combined. Corporate music has marginalize the… Continue

One thing about this website,and the community in general,is that it's non-racist,non sexist,and non homophobic.Working within the perameter's of this dynamic makes it challenging to be humorous.It's not impossible;it just takes more work.Lucky for me,I'm in the final phases of my court ordered sensitivity training.I've been taking courses in political correctness for 2 year's,to improve my sensiivity level,and beat an Assault 4 rap.It's eye opening,to take everyone elses comfort level into…
