Musea zine weekly art quiz - test your art smarts for massive prizes

This major known and celebrated American writer, said his favorite work was his biography of Joan of Arc. And that it took him 12 years of preparation and 2 years of writing to make. Name that author.

IS

Mark Twain! He said, "I like Joan of Arc best of all my books; and it is the best; I know it perfectly well. And besides, it furnished me seven times the pleasure afforded me by any of the others; twelve years of preparation, and two years of writing. The others needed no preparation…

Myspace, what happened?

Readers,  what is your experience/history with Myspace?

Most of us agree that the consolidation of the arts into so few corporate hands (Big 6 - see below) is not good for the arts. When that hand full of conglomerates not only make and distribute the art; but, review the art they make too - that is too much. That's reason enough to do some trust busting. BUT

Most of us think , somewhere in the back of our minds, that these business leaders, though hard on quality art, are…

Poem: Relaxed after Reading

Relaxed after reading

I closed my book.

My eyelids follow

and there appeared stairs.

I began to descend

step after step.

The light of my lantern

bounced off the quartz

embedded in the walls.

I blinked my eyes

and a draft of air,

a repeating echo,

swept me away...

across an ocean

and an ocean beyond

across outer space

across time itself ...

There appeared ahead

a high raised place.

I stood on a mountain…

Musea Art Contest 3/6/12 - good luck

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

The 1966 sci-fi film, 'Fahrenheit 451", is all about the Firemen, who instead of stopping fires, seek out all books ( that author Bradbury thought burned at 451 degrees) and burn them to help control information. The art question is this, there are only 2 words printed in the film (that aren't on the covers of the books that are shown). What are they?

IS

"The End" at the very end, adding a bit of hope to a…

Musea Art Contest 2/29/12

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

This week's question is obscure, tough, and a lot of fun. Fantasy and Science Fiction magazine has been publishing since my birth year, 1949. It's the most widely read sci-fi magazine. In 1980 F&SF had a 30 year contest that went like this. Readers were asked to choose some science fiction concept that would be a reality by 2010, and win $2,010 for it. The magazine says that of the 2,700 entries, there were many…

Musea Art Contest for 2/20/12 Our 500th Contest

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



My 6-TH CD release party was last week (Thursday night on the Hunkasaurus website), and this week's question was about my music. Lots of strings attached!



In 1967 a local group in Tyler, Texas, was going to record a song I'd written, then titled "Your Lovin' Trip" - it was the late 60's remember. Complication arose and they couldn't do it. The guitar player for the Tyler group, Doug Rhone, later went on…

Musea Contest for Online CD Release Party Week

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

While Melanie Pruit is covering the Oscars for her blog, and letting Musea in on it, we have an indie film question for all. This 1999 horror film really had a bare bones budget ranging from $25,000-$60,000. One site said, the film (was) shot for $35,000 on a camera bought at Wal-Mart (and subsequently returned for a refund)!. It went on to gross almost 250 mill. Now that's an indie film with legs! Name the…

Musea Art Contest for the Week - test your art smarts

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

This year's annual Musea Christmas story, 'Senlin', about the world's greatest dancer, had a major plot point connected to this passage,

"COME TO THE WINDOW! Follow me. Do as you're told!" Then he (Paulo) laughed. She (Senlin) followed. Looking out the open window, down below was a milling crowd. They did NOT cheer. Senlin thought that odd! Then one young man in the center , turned on some music, and began to…
