This week's quizzical quiz question

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

If I just said, "It's got a good beat and you can dance to it," What did I most likely just finish doing? Clue 35-98!

IS,

You just finished the "Rate-a-Record" segment of American Bandstand ( rate how you like it from 35-98). The TV show would play 2 new releases and two people from the audience would rate the record. Seems that over time the good ratings always had the same reasons, "It's got a good beat and… Continue

Two Poems of Light Fantasy

Two Poems of Light Fantasy

I danced into the light

I danced back

Poverty grinds



Part of the problem with the media’s news stories is that they stress conflict over cooperation, and problems over solutions.

20 Years Later

A gray sky day of drizzle that April 21, back in 1994. The official date of my move to Eugene, Oregon and that evening I was already loving it--seeing Spitboy play at Icky's Teahouse and thrilled too be a part of what was sure to be a vibrant scene. Several southern Oregon punks had moved to town and there were not only loads more local punks already but an anarchist collective also. Leaving college for to build a thriving punk community was looking like the best decision I had made in my…

Net Access - a right or a product

Dear Musea Readers,



Big set back for net neutrality today. That's not good news. Here's my take on it.

I think internet access should be free to all as a right, not a corporate product to buy.

Are tapes still even a thing?

Hi. My name is Leif, and I write a zine about cassette tapes. Mostly punk and metal tapes, as that is where the tape scene is thriving the most right now. I just put out my first issue. Let me know if you want to order or trade a copy. My store envy will be up soon. Yadda yadda yadda.

This is a Maybe Story (sci-fi poem)

THIS IS A MAYBE STORY

[Poem from Writings in Science anthology]



This is a maybe story

We voyage out

an eye pieced telescope



Where does it point?

Why only there?

Why can't it swivel?

Is it a clue?

What do we… Continue
