Fair Review Website would Change the Art World

https://musea.wordpress.com/2016/05/12/fair-review-website-would-change-all-the-arts/

Key to any career in any art form is a fair review - right now you and I can't get one, and only a handful in the world can. Fair reviews online would change all that if done in a way that is set up to help artists instead of make money off of them. See blog for more. Thanks

Media/Art Monopoly - Worse then Bagdikian could Imagine.

The Bagdikian Interview

FAIR, Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting, rebroadcast an interview with Ben Bagdikian, author of The Media Monopoly.



Listening to the ’95 interview of Ben Bagdikian.

He mentions the danger of owning both distribution and content. The media / art companies has taken that up one step.



They own distribution, content, and reviews of content.

They give themselves great reviews for bad music, books, tv, film, etc. OR

They give… Continue

Ben Bagdikian has died.

Ben Bagdikian has died.



That name may not mean much to you, but it does to me. And I think his legacy will mean more and more as time goes by.



He was a journalist who wrote the book The Media Monopoly in 1983. That book, even in the 80's talked about a fast shrinking landscape of who owned the media and the dangers of so few owning so much.



Since then, his concern for an ever shrinking number of major independent news outlets, has gotten worse not better - much… Continue

3 Men control all the Music? Yes.

Let's look at the problem with the music industry this way.



There are 3 record companies that control 80% of the business, Warners, Universal, Sony. Each has a president. That's 3 presidents controlling the music industry. 

 Do you think 3 people should determine the fate of 80% of the music business? No of course not, but they do now. The 3 have made it clear,



We only support a generic pop sound. We only promote that type of music, and only for a few. (Swift, Beyonce,… Continue

See my blog for more about the Texas Video Showdown.



Do you support musicians or want 5 pop stars to marginalize all the rest

Sadly it’s clear to me that before any musician can make a living beyond selling a few t-shirts and cd’s we will have to work together to end the corporate music that is down to about 5 pop stars and 3 mega music corporations. That’s why I started the Texas Video Showdown, a video that brings the conflict to one point, one video, one challenge, one… Continue
