Musea Quizzical returns (art question and maybe a prize)

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

When the first performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony was finished, what did the contralto do? Good Luck!


Contralto Carolina Unger, turned the now deaf Beethoven, around to face a wildly cheering audience. They knew he was deaf to their applause so they also gave him a standing ovation!

I had no correct answers – No one turned y'all around on this one! I don’t dumb down so please… Continue

Modern art satire - supports the new postism art revolution

My nephew Erik sent me this link to this modern art satire set up like a children's book about understanding art.

Beware, though it looks innocent with the main characters a Mom and her kids at an art museum, it’s “R” rated.

What I like about it is that it does show you some of the problems with modern art that I have been talking about for years.…

Hunkasaurus - News of 150 New YOUTUBE music videos added!

Dear Musea Reader,

This weekend brought a nice big surprise for ME and my MUSIC.

I chose, the website, CD Baby to put my 150 songs - 9 CD's on the internet for streaming. Glad I did. It has proved to have extra benefits that I couldn't even imagine at the time, such as placing all of them on the brand new Apple Streaming.

But a bigger surprise was when I found, this weekend, that they had put all my songs, all 150 on Youtube - each one a separate video! That is… Continue

This local weekly is such an insult to every zine in Dallas

The weekly, that I refuse to name, has never supported zines. Now it runs a story wondering where are all the zines - what nerve when they have done everything to block my zine and other local zinesters for 24 years!

3rd Recent Review of Portraits, my novel on art, artists, and the art revolutions (with zines in there too)

Please see my blog for more of this review

This book was very interesting. I was drawn into it rather quickly and I really liked the characters. They definitely have flaws and they aren’t perfect in themselves or their craft, but they seem to work well together. You get to know the main characters the best and you’re left, even at the end, wondering a little about a couple of the others (but that’s kind of the point). Missy is one of those characters you’re left wondering about, but… Continue
