November 25, 2008

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

Continuing in the Clock vein, this TYPE of clock got its name from a song title from 1876. Name the type of clock

IS Grandfather Clock, also known as a longcase clock. From the song ‘My Grandfather’s Clock’ by Henry Clay Work. When Grandfather dies, the clock stops working.

I had no eligible winners, I guess the REST of you were on ‘Clueless Standard Time’ (CST) on this one.

I don’t dumb down, so please wise up.

Now on to a new Q.: Win a copy of my NEW cd CALLED ‘30′! – (first anti-band CD) or my NEWER cd CALLED ‘NEXT” or my NEWEST cd CALLED ‘THIRDS” (May ‘07) or my NOW RELEASED cd CALLED ‘FOUR-TH’ Hunkasaurus.com (has them all plus videos and more) if you are the first to e-mail me at THIS NEW ADDRESS: tom-hendricks@att.net with the correct answer to this art question*

Name this acting trick that is a surefire way to ellicit applause from an audience. It is here described by Leigh Hunt in his Dramatic Essays published in 1807.

“It consists of nothing more than in gradually raising the voice as the speech draws to a conclusion, making an alarming outcry on the last four or five lines, or suddenly dropping them into a tremulous but energetic undertone, and with a vigorous jerk of the right arm rushing off the stage. All this astonishes the galleries; they are persuaded it must be something very fine, because it is so important aned so unintelligible, and they clap for the sake of their own reputation.”

Good luck puzzlers! Readers, IF you like these puzzles and would like to resend them to friends, post them on any newsgroup, or any website, please do so. The more the merrier!

Some Original Rockers

November 21, 2008

Here’s some original rockers. They’re done in Post-Bands style, back to basic style of voice and guitar only. And I hope to have some of the fun and spirit that was in the earliest rock and roll.
