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 .

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 , read all my writings, and see all the art, whether you win or lose – and I’d be glad if you did!

Quizzical for October 2017

October 3, 2017

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

Peter Tork, an official Monkee member said that when the producers were getting the cast for the TV show of the same name; they actually thought of using a working known band for the part of the musicians. They auditioned a well known rock group of that time, but it didn’t work out. Seems their playing was fine but acting was not. Name the band that didn’t make the cut.

IS …
The Lovin’ Spoonful.

I had no correct eligible answers. “Do You Believe in Magic?” Maybe you should stick with facts to find the answer to this one! I don’t dumb down so please wise up.

August 24, 2017

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

When was London in San Francisco?
IS …
JACK London was born in San Francisco in 1876, so London was in SF in 1876.

Yeah I know it was a trick question and sneaky! I had no correct eligible answers. Seems you neither crossed the Golden Gate or the Tower Bridge to get to the other side on this one. I don’t dumb down so please wise up.

Musea Quizzical

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice!
Carnegie Hall is the ultimate place for serious music and musicians.
Being the first of the year, the Musea art question should fit. That’s why it’s all about the opening night at Carnegie Hall. It featured a program of work by Tchaikovsky. Who conducted that first nights program, in other words, who was the first star to play Carnegie Hall?
IS:
Tchaikovsy himself! Seems even giving you the answer in the question, makes the question too hard!
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.
