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…

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…

Zinester weekly art quiz

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

There is always room for a Beatle question and this one is a fun one. My range singing is almost exactly 2 octaves. I think John Lennon of the Beatles could BEAT that. My claim for the highest John note on a Beatle record is probably the falsetto at the end of In My Life (any one know for sure?) But this week's contest question for the prize is about the low end of his range: what Beatle recording has John's lowest…

Since Buck Rogers and the Rocketeer, we've seen the future and it's jet packs. Surely by 1980 everyone would have one right?

Name the jet pack fuel.

Poem for the country in these hard times

Poem for the country in these hard times -

from the Musea Poetry issue from 2007

***

Bless the minnow, bless the whale

Bless the hardy, bless the frail

Bless the straight, bless the turn

Bless the world from stem to stern

Bless the sky and all that's in it

Bless the start and bless the finish.

Musea Art Contest for the week - test your art smarts

The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:"Mary had a little lamb, little lamb, little lamb..."  But who was Mary? IS: Mary Sawyer who grew up in Sterling MA. The lamb caper happened in 1815 when her pet lamb followed her to school (clearly against the rules). Bet you didn't know it was about a real person! The author of the poem is in some dispute and remains a literary mystery.

But there is no mystery about our winner - Mike from Dameron MD. Seems the rest of…

POEMS

Picasso's distorted faces

show a repressed angst.

This is rampant in modern art

and displays personalities that are split -

torn apart and filled with rage.

light years away

how can we still

smell the sea air?
