The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
Halloween is over, but the love of candy and costumed characters goes on.
PEZ Candy has it all: candy + the costumed characters you love. Here’s the art question: for the most part (don’t think too hard) PEZ never featured this on it’s candies until about 2006? Name that this!
Real People. It was only fictional characters. That began to change in 2006. According to Pez.com 2006 was when they featured… Continue

Not long ago, we put together our bestsellers (so far) of 2013. I always love making those lists, but also leave feeling baffled by what isn't on there. These are ten of the ones that I think should be bestsellers.…

The Good (3 of 3 music posts in a row)
This is the 3rd of 3 blog posts on current music. This one I label the Good News one. Least I can say, it’s good for me. I’ve finally gotten some national coverage for my music. In the fall issue of TEXAS MUSIC MAGAZINE, I’ve got a big, 3 x 5″, photo of me playing in the box office, by David McGhee; and a paragraph article underneath it. Check it out:

A Punk Rock Manifesto
I have never owned a record label, nor directed a successful merchandise company, so I don't pretend to be an expert on marketing. I have evolved through my craft as a songwriter, but others have labeled it and marketed it and made it neat for consumption.
Although I have made money from Punk, it is a modest amount when one considers the bounty that has been bestowed on the companies that… Continue

Here’s a retro fashion question. In 1991 climbers found a 5,000 year old man frozen in the Alps. On his body they found 57 of these. Question for this week is 57 what?
Tattoos! They were made out of soot from a fire, and due to where they were located on the man’s body, they may have been there to fight arthritis. The ice man has been named Otzi.
We had no eligible…

Just wanted to update that my friend Kylie Buck and myself have started a review site for NZ zines! We post one a week on Mondays, and are putting out an "annual" in time for Wellington Zinefest this year in November.
We accept zine submissions to review - zines are returned to the sender (if provided with a return stamp), or donated to the closest zine library. We accept zines made in NZ, or by New Zealanders living overseas (by discretion). Email for… Continue

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?
Seems that not only are newspapers going out of business, but news stands and magazines too!
I was interviewed for this issue over the phone. I hope there is a mention, but I don't know. If you can find a copy of this issue, let me know.

3 poems inspired by Sappho – the last a fragment that works as is]
her face saddened,
her shoulders slumped,
her wings collapsed,
“As for me
neither honey or bee,”
in her declining years.

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
