Truck Museums (from the Musea Zine Vaults)

This from the Musea Vaults: TRUCK MUSEUMS

The idea is simple enough - takte the paintings to the people, instead of the people traveling to the musty museums. But these are not the original paintings. These are exact copies on canvas - same size, color, brushstrokes, etc.. That can be done now. The reproduction technology is THAT GOOD. Here's the test to prove it. Put up the original and 4 exact size copies in the same frame. If viewers can't pick out the original - the paintings are… Continue

Musea Weekly Quiz for the Quizzicality in all of us

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

Tough times for magazine and newspaper publishers, but some magazines are doing pretty good. This question is about Art magazines. What art magazine has the largest circulation in the US? Clue, It's not Art News, or Art in America!


Juxtapoz Art & Culture Magazine. This covers the very popular lowbrow, or pop surrealism, or as I call it "Poppy" art. It's a lot of fun - check out a copy of this or… Continue

Fanzine Fuckface Memories 0f 1972

We eventually got driven out of the old house.I'll alway's remember the impact that moldy dump had on me though.The silk screened poster's that were everywhere,although corny and hippy dippy in retrospect,at the time seemed like the coolest thing in the universe to me.There were alway's cool psychedelic poster's hanging up on all the wall's.Probably my last discovery before we got evicted was a big washing machine in the hall.It was filled with old book's,by Edgar Rice Burrough's,L Sprague…

Root's Of Honky Motherland

The old house in the wood's was a wreck.It was condemned-it was unfit for human habitation.People shook thier head's and went,"Tch-so sad children have to live like that".It was confusing to me-I didn't give a fuck-I was 5.It was actually being used to store old junk in when we moved in.It had racoon's,which I fed cherry tomatoes to so they would leave my room.The collection of comic's upstair's in the attic was enough for me.The copies of The Masses really intrigued me.The art was alot…

Early Influences on Zine Shit

I alway's loved printed matter,from the earliest day's I can remember.Probably the first art I saw that I dug was printed.Mass communication,to me,instantly mean's your art is worth a shit.Obviously,I'm wrong,but this is just a core belief I developed somewhere along the way.My aunt,who lived up by Central Park had a book of old MAD magazines,and those were my first memories of comic's.In 1970,my mom moved out to the Catskill's,behind my Grandparent's house,to get away from my dad because he…

Picolla (Xmas story - beware it's touching)


(Musea version of a poem by Celia Thaxter. Note it was the custom for St. Nick to leave a present in the child's shoe. Piccola = pick-o-la)

Poor Mother, poor Father, house maid and share cropper

and both pockets empty, except for due bills.

What can they get their little girl for Christmas.

"Piccola! Piccola! Love of my life!"

Father wrings hands and mother cries.

The bells ring carols as the family walks to church.

A snowflake falls on Piccola's…

For You.

As the holidays and the New Year is approaching, I just want to thank everyone for supporting the zine.  As some of you may know, the lastest issue of Cadillac Girl came out this year after an 8 year break. I'm so happy to have started it up again and I couldn't have done it without the support of readers, contributors, fans, reviewers, friends...everyone.  I have met some wonderful people and I can't wait to see what 2013 brings (issue four is in the making). So to…
