Sayings of Eddie Art (on the state of the arts)

Sayings of Eddie Art (on the state of the arts)

State of the Arts: Decades of blandness and hype



When music starts opposing what rock has become instead of falling into it’s generic molds, then it’ll be exciting again. (and i’ll be impressed.)



Auto tune does for music what photography did for art.



Bar Name: Moonlight Over The City



There is a difference in the arts, between new and exciting and old and redundant.



Hollywood where people… Continue

Listen to my Warning (Kid's poem)

Listen to my warning (kid’s poem)

Listen to my warning -
the TRUTH this time.

If you slide down the bannister
that floor at the bottom
falls away and you
drop like a stone
to a dark monster’s cave.
Then since you’re gone
the trap closes shut
and no one misses you ….

so listen to your MOM!

Some Music Rebellion on July Fourth

Music for the last few decades has been OK. It's been professionally done and auto tuned so the notes are on pitch; but it has not been very exciting. What we need on this July 4th is a little rebellion in the music in the country. Not more of a music chart with a downhill arrow.

Message to Hollywood Stars

Hollywood stars are well paid. When people come up to the box office at the Inwood where I work, and complain about the high ticket prices, I reply, "Thank goodness all that money is going to me and none to the Hollywood Stars."

That is one reason for the high movie ticket prices.



These same stars are often very generous too. How many times have you read about a major donation,… Continue
