The Telescope (poem)

Readers, I am working on part two of the Musea issues connected to my sci-fi novel in progress. Here is a poem that will be a part of that work. From Writing In Science - Sci fi Novel, Poem Collection. See the musea.us website , latest issue for more:

the telescope
runs by itself
swivels here and there
in search of a light source
a galaxy lit
in the ever night
placing it finally
in an ongoing atlas
of time and place -
floating coordinates.

Why not Art Copies too

Look around where you are now. Are there books (mass marketed writings)?. Are their recordings (mass marketed music)?. Are there dvd's (mass marketed movies)? Are their exact copies of paintings and drawings? Probably not. But why not?



We can now make copies of most paintings that are exact replicas. So why not mass market art like books, music, and movies? I've talked about this a lot in my zine Musea. I'd like to see us artists hold on to the original art and sell… Continue

Stadium concerts

Do you like arena concerts? Stadium music? Do you think the ticket pricing is fair? Do you get mad when you fight your way in among the thousands and all the best seats up front, down on the floor, are filled with jewelry wearing fat cats that got their tickets for free to promote the concerts? Do you like the excess fees you pay, the lines you stand in, and the parking? When you hear your parents talk about concerts for $5, do you think they are exaggerating?



Here's the problem with… Continue

Pardon Me Sir - Nonsense verse for April Fool's Day

APRIL FOOL'S DAY SPECIAL

Pardon me sir, but have you heard

That on you back there sits a bird?

At first I didn’t even notice,

thought my eyes were out of focus.

Now I think it’s just absurd

that on your back there sits a bird!

Towards the end of my box office concerts, I like to do a BIG song. A Big song is a dramatic song that starts out very quietly and builds and builds and BUILDS. This is one of my big songs. Enjoy

Sayings of Editor Art - the made for TV version

Sayings of editor Art - the made for TV version
------------------

Never has so much been owned by so few to the detriment of so many.

Hubris as stiff as a Pilgrims collar.

The public is a strange brew.

How much fire went into that chili?

You must accept the fact that those that disagree with you can be moral too.

Do birds need a bridge?.

Ticky Economic Talk - Decoded

Decoded – Tricky Talk about what’s saving/ruining the country



Giving money to rich people will save the country.

Giving money to poor people will ruin it.

Sounds silly doesn’t it? But let’s put it in different language.

Giving money to rich people TAX BREAKS will save the country MAKE JOBS

Giving money to poor people ENTITLEMENTS will ruin the county DEFICITS.

Don’t let people fool you. Welfare for the rich is the same as welfare for the poor. Right now most… Continue

History repeats and repeats and repeats....

Sometimes history not only repeats itself, but it gets into a rut doing it!



Let's look at how the established art form, looked down on the upstart. It may be repeating itself yet again:



The established New York stage community looked down on the upstart film community toward the first of last century.



The established Hollywood film community looked down on the upstart television community toward the middle of last century.



The established television… Continue

This week's art question

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



Let's stick with the great music of the 60's for one more question. Fans of the Godfather of Soul, James Brown, know about his performance bit of giving his all, collapsing on stage, a helper bringing out a cape, placing it on his shoulders, and leading him off stage, where half way to the exit he breaks free, brushes the cape from his shoulders, runs back to the mike, and does more singing and show. It's perhaps… Continue
