Musea Quiz 10/17

October 24, 2017

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

I say Earthlings have landed on Mars. You say no.
When I tell you why I know that it is true, you will say … Yes Tom you are correct and I was wrong. Explain what is going on!

IS …
Bacteria are Earthlings just as much as you and me. Though NASA does everything it can to keep the outer space hardware sterile, I doubt they cover EVERY bacterial Earthling. So I say, recently, Earthlings have landed on Saturn – and in all likelihood when the spacecraft Cassini fell into Saturn 9/15/17, there were bacteria aboard and they went down with the ship!

I had no correct eligible answers. Seems you didn’t have a GERM of an idea on this one. I don’t dumb down so please wise up.

Now on to a new Q.: Win a copy of any of my 9 CDs, or copy of one of my artworks IF you are the first to …

E-MAIL ME AT THIS ADDRESS: tom-hendricks @ att.net(remove blanks of course) with the correct answer to the following art question .

The Quizzical back from a month’s vacation

May 11, 2015

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
The Beatles always had great covers for their albums. This question is about the Abbey Road cover, where the 4 are crossing the walk near their recording studio.
For this either or question, you only get one chance. Q. Are the Beatles walking away from their studio or towards it?
Here is a live cam of the spot
http://www.abbeyroad.com/crossing

IS:
(From the Beatles Bible) A policeman held up the traffic as Macmillan, from a stepladder positioned in the middle of the road, took six shots as the group walked across the zebra crossing just outside the studio.

The Beatles crossed the road a number of times while Macmillan photographed them. 8 August was a hot day in north London, and for four of the six photographs McCartney walked barefoot; for the other two he wore sandals.

Shortly after the shoot, McCartney studied the transparencies and chose the fifth one for the album cover. It was the only one when all four Beatles were walking in time. It also satisfied The Beatles’ desire for the world to see them walking away from the studios they had spent so much of the last seven years inside.

I had no correct answers – seems the answers were walking in the wrong direction on this one.  I don’t dumb down so please wise up.

Now on to a new Q.: Win a copy of my FIRST 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), or my even NEWER THAN THAT cd CALLED “7-TH (early 2014), or my even NEWER UP TO DATE CD CALLED “#8-TH (08/14) or my very newest #9 out now. OR a download card for a free streaming CD.

IF you are the first to E-MAIL ME , AT THIS ADDRESS: tom-hendricks @ att.net (remove blanks of course) with the correct answer to this art question.

THIS WEEK’S QUESTION
Setting: NYC in the 30’s. Macy’s Department Store had advertised that it had a toy version of this. The next morning there was a queue of 20,000 people, one third of a mile long, waiting for the store to open to get that toy. What toy was it?
Good Luck!

This week’s quizzical

February 13, 2015

Photo 2

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
What is ‘a swing’? Clue, remember this is an art question, not a playground question. It has something to do with the arts, and a playground swing is not what I mean! So keep looking
IS:
[From wikipedia] In musical theater, the term swing is often used to refer to a member of the company who understudies several chorus and/or dancing roles. If an understudy fills in for a lead role, a swing will act the parts normally performed by the understudy. A super swing or universal swing is a swing who may commute around the country as needed to act in various productions of a widespread show.
I had no correct answers – seems y’all needed an understudy on this one.
I don’t dumb down so please wise up.

Now on to a new Q.: Win a copy of my FIRST 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), or my even NEWER THAN THAT cd CALLED “7-TH (early 2014), or my even NEWER UP TO DATE CD CALLED “#8-TH (08/14) or my very newest #9 out now.
