Tension Twosome (kids poems from the Musea Vaults)

Here are two recent kids poems of mine that I’ll collectively call a ‘Tension Twosome’. (For more such kids poetry see my book “Moon Tea”)

SHOT OUT OF A CANNON

She is the woman

shot out of a cannon

that never came down

that never came down



it’s very uncommon

but life goes on and

crowds shift about

crowds shift about



tension smacks the atmosphere

a little bit here a little bit there

‘seems not right that she’d disappear’……

Revolution In Painting (page) Musea E-mail Club #544

POST MODERN ART: This page is all about the new art movement.

My goal is to get painting out of the Ivory Towers and back into the world.

Conceptual art ended MODERN ART. And for the last 40 years no one has known what to do with it!

Snake Oil

The Snake Oil art piece both clamps down on one type of art while opening the door to another.…

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

We are still talking about painters. This one is talking to us with this quote: Name the quoter.

"Since a three-dimensional object casts a two-dimensional shadow, we should be able to imagine the unknown four-dimensional object whose shadow we are. I for my part am fascinated by the search for a one-dimensional object that casts no shadow at all.”

IS

Marcel Duchamp.

Musea Art Contest 6/11/12

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

In every album I make, I try to have at least one "BIG" song. That's a song that builds from a quiet and simple start to a very dramatic ending. 'Peace Sign' is my 6-TH's album's big song. It ends with the longest held note on any of my recordings. When I was done, I had to repeat it 2 more times for the background vocals!!! The song is about peace songs that I loved in the late 60's. 4 are mentioned or quoted from or…

Myspace, what happened?

Readers,  what is your experience/history with Myspace?

Most of us agree that the consolidation of the arts into so few corporate hands (Big 6 - see below) is not good for the arts. When that hand full of conglomerates not only make and distribute the art; but, review the art they make too - that is too much. That's reason enough to do some trust busting. BUT

Most of us think , somewhere in the back of our minds, that these business leaders, though hard on quality art, are…
