a place for zinesters - writers and readers
The answer to, and winner (if any) for, our last contest question of:
From 1872-1914, this city became the fastest growing city in history.AND an architectural leader of the world. AND all this from a barnfire! Name the city.
IS:Chicago, USA. The fire was Sunday evening October 8,1871 and burned almost 4 square miles of the city. You've heard about Mrs O"Leary's cow kicking over a lantern? But that is an urban myth... isn't it? For more see http://www.thechicagofire.com/. Strangely enough the wind shifted and though the O'Leary's barn burned, their house did not.The years following led to a great rebuilding, that in the 1880's, ushered in the new type of architecture - skyscrapers.
We had no winners, seems y'all were milking the wrong cow 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′! – (firstanti-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 myJust RELEASED MOST NEWEST cd CALLED ‘5-TH’(Nov.’09)( one of the 5 CDset). Hunkasaurus.com (has them all plus videos and more) if you arethe first to E-MAIL ME AT THIS ADDRESS: tom-hendricks @ att.net(removeblanks of course) with the correct answer to this art question.
FINE PRINT: The CD prize is only available to those with mailingaddresses in the US. Foreign winners will have to settle for theminiscule fame alone, and the satisfaction of a job well done. Butdon't forget you can listen to all the music on the website, whetheryou won or lost - and I'd be glad if you did!
