You Were There (poem on all arts)

March 30, 2017

You were there
to call Impressionists daubers.
You were there
to call rock n roll, the devil’s music.
You’re there now
and think your different.

This Week’s Quizzical

November 27, 2013

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
Here’s an artist’s trick you learn if you are going to paint or draw a realistic portrait of someone. Do you know it? How far apart are the eyes of a person in a portrait? (Picasso’s 2 eyes on the same side of the nose does not apply here!)
The width of one eye between the two eyes – and the eyes have it… right.

Did we have any winners? Sorry no – seems y’all drew a blank 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”(‘06) or my NEWEST cd CALLED ‘THIRDS” (May ‘07) or my MORE NEWEST cd Called “FOUR-TH” (‘08) or my MOST NEWEST cd CALLED ‘5-TH (Nov.’09) or my MORE NEWEST NEWEST cd CALLED ’6-TH’(Feb ’12)( one of the 6 CD set). (has them all plus videos and more) if you are the first to E-MAIL ME AT THIS ADDRESS: tom-hendricks @ blanks of course) with the correct answer to this art question.
DEDICATION: These contests are dedicated to my sister, Peggy, who answered more of the questions correctly than anyone else.

FINE PRINT: The CD prize is only available to those with mailing addresses in the US. Foreign winners will have to settle for the miniscule fame alone, and the satisfaction of a job well done. But don’t forget you can listen to all the music on the website, whether you won or lost – and I’d be glad if you did!

For this week’s puzzle go to

This question based on info from the book “The Incredible World of Spy-Fi”.
Officers of the CIA, after viewing a new James Bond film would most often ask which of these:
1. Why wasn’t Bond required to prepare an expense report and account for all the equipment he lost, broke, or destroyed?
2. Why haven’t my assignments involved such handsome men and beautiful women?”
3. Why don’t we have all those neat toys and technical gadgets that Q makes for Bond?”
Clue: you only get 3 guesses.

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!
