HNT and Thursday Trivia!


Happy HNT everybody!
Here are my two feet at the beach near the Ostsee in Germany! I love to let the sand run between my toes and feel the cold of the sand fight with the heat in my body!

Activate your remaining brain cells:

"His work was greatly influenced by folk singer Woody Guthrie, and a song on his first album was dedicated to Guthrie. Always changing his style, he has been a folksinger, a protest singer, a rock poet, and a country singer. He has been one of rock’s most influential artists and has had his songs recorded by everyone from Elvis to William Shatner. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in the 1990s by Bruce Springsteen, and got a Kennedy Center honor, and won Album of the Year at the 1998 Grammys."

If you think you got it, off with you to the comment section and HINT! at the right answer. By leaving clues instead of answers, you allow fellow commentators to keep on guessing!

First of all: welcome back. ;)

The answer is blowing in the wind, but the last part of the hint is wrong I think, because Album of the Year in '97 was won by a certain french-speaking Canadian whose name must not be uttered.

Hi Minka,

Looks like you had quite the
job chillin'
on the beach.

 
At 14:24, Blogger Minka said...

Bjössi, you are right. will change it right away. I was so sure it was 1997.

You can call him Terry, or you can call him Timmy, you can call him Bobby or you can call him Zimmy but you're still gonna have to serve somebody.

Oh, and where are my manners? Pretty feet! Is that one of those radio-transmitter thingies on your ankle?

His son is as talented as he is... with a talented band of wall flowers.

 
At 18:42, Blogger Minka said...

Brian...it is lovely. next time bring Diane and we make a day of it. I show you how to make a sand angel!

Doug, Well I am a bit embarrased to tell, but this is how the Icelandic police keeps track of my every move. I collect restraining orders!

tsduff, I bet he is.

 
At 18:58, Blogger Doug said...

Oh, that's a relief. I was afraid a shepherd put that on.

 
At 19:55, Blogger actonbell said...

Nice picture of your feet:) The sand was cool? That's nice. It was hothot in NJ. OUCH.

guess you didn't get the subterranean homesick blues!

 
At 20:20, Blogger Doug said...

Actonbell, you don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows.

 
At 20:25, Blogger Tim Rice said...

The sensation of sand on one's feet on the beach is a great part of the beach experience -- except when as one other comment mention, the sand is too hot to walk on as it so frequently was in the past couple weeks in New Jersey.

As for Thursday trivia, if he is the person I think he is, he went through a couple different religious conversions.

 
At 20:34, Blogger actonbell said...

heh, Doug. I could use more of a breeze, right now...

Oh, and Minka, I forgot about your letter-color question: on my computer, I have a compose-mode on blogger--the toolbar has a T with a color grid next to it. I highlight was I want colored, then arrow-point the color choice. If you don't have the same toolbar, then you can also just type: font color="red" --with those <, > things on either side. Blogger won't let me type it here!

 
At 20:49, Blogger ariel said...

I'm sure he's a wonderful singer anyway!

 
At 21:36, Blogger The Village Idiot said...

I know the answer!

Bill Murray and his performance as an off balance psychiatric patient of Richard Dreyfuss

Or it could be some singer who sings Dirge(s)

Hi Minka,,,nice toes!

 
At 21:58, Blogger Tryggvi said...

He dated Joan Baez. One of the weirdest and unique artists the world has ever seen.

 
At 00:21, Blogger Aisha said...

Welcome back! :)

 
At 00:25, Blogger Logophile said...

I don't know a whole lot about him, but he had a big brass bed I've heard.

 
At 00:26, Blogger Logophile said...

Oh, and I love the beach too!
Your low jack (police tracker) is lovely, btw.

 
At 03:41, Anonymous neva said...

he'll be portrayed in his youth by Beyonce and/or Cate Blanchett in an upcoming film. (and how freaking weird is *that*??)

lovely toes, especially for a Penguin!! happy HNT!! xox

 
At 05:28, Blogger ariel said...

I still have no idea but like the Bill Murray idea, his Russian dance performance in "The Man Who Knew Too Little" almost killed me.

 
At 07:44, Blogger Miz BoheMia said...

OOOh! Late to the party but Neva's comment reveals all for me.. ALL! Fabulous FO SHO!

Oh and those feet? So pretty!

Just don't expect cold san here! More like burning-the-flesh-off-the-feet-it-is-so-damn-hot! Dios mio!

 
At 07:47, Blogger Minka said...

Doug, for once I wish you´d not remember every little detail :)

actonbell, yes the sand is cool. But on on the surface, but if you dig with your feet right into the mess and come up again, you got the cooler sand from deeper down. I really should teahc this stuff! :) Did I mention that I love your avatar?

Doug, don't be smart with my blogger buddies!

Tim, yes it is important. Can´t wait to throw my flip flip flops right off and run when I get to the shores.

actonbell, thank you..that helps a lot. I have an upcoming event of 30.000 on my blog and I thought a bit of colour was in order;)

ariel, as long as you are sure....

VI, I believe that to be right and thank you they feel very toey to me too ;)

Tryggvi, correct and no surprise you´d know this person!

aisha, thank you so very much.

Logo, does he now? Never been in it, to be sure! yeah...I got for my birthday...from myself. Cause my old one broke!

neva, thank you. It makes swimming a bit more difficult, all teh othe rpenguins are teasing me...but I do feel special :)
And good clue!

 
At 09:07, Blogger Miz BoheMia said...

Hey! What about Ariel and me? Are we chopped liver or something? *bohemian sobs uncontrollably*

You'd think that with my hairdo unnoticed is the last thing that would happen to me!

WAAAAHHHH!!!!

 
At 20:17, Anonymous Joel said...

Very late to the party and by now the answer is obvious but I will just add...

In the 1960's TV show "Gunsmoke" there was a certain resident Marshall with the same last name.

Excellent feet...btw.

 
At 00:34, Blogger Minka said...

Miz B...both of you probably commented at the same time that I did. I left the palce immediately after I left my comment. THat is not excuse for over-sight, but and explanaation I hope. Both of you know, how important you are to me.

Joel, correct and why, thank you!

 
At 03:29, Blogger Doug said...

Honomymous, Joel

 
At 03:30, Blogger Doug said...

At 03:31, Blogger Doug said...

At 14:14, Blogger Minka said...

At 16:42, Blogger Miz BoheMia said...

Happy HNT, Minka! You have lovely feet.

 
At 02:46, Blogger G said...

Guess I'm late to this Scrabble game.

 
At 03:26, Blogger Doug said...

Isn't early for snow?

 
At 05:30, Blogger ariel said...

I'm glad it's Bob Dylan. his lyrics are good.

 
At 05:55, Blogger ariel said...

if I'd realized it was him, my hint would have been "stunning green eyes".

 
At 12:14, Blogger cube said...

Welcome Back!

 
At 14:56, Blogger Minka said...

That is teh second time my own comment has dissapeared...I am not sure I am liking this sort of disobedience....

 
At 15:50, Blogger Miz BoheMia said...

Blogger is off Monika... I think that is the problem... I tried republishing your entire blog, because the code it right, and it won't take and I got a message from Blogger but they are working on it... so tonight after I am done teaching, if it isn't fine on its own, I will give it another try!

 
At 21:07, Blogger Miz BoheMia said...

Hi Monika! The problem is from imageshack as for some reason it is not hosting the background pic anymore and I have not been able to find anything close to it anymore (I had it saved in my computer that got a virus and crashes)... so give me some days and I shall see what I can do! It is crazy for me these days but know I have not forgotten!

 
At 22:18, Blogger Minka said...

Miz B, not to worry. It doesnæt drive me mad or anything, you are allowed to ocntinue with your life :)
Breathe and relax, in between.

 
At 05:39, Blogger Miz BoheMia said...

PROBLEM SOLVED!

It was imageshack and now it is up and running and good to go!

WOOH TO DA HOOH!

 
At 11:56, Blogger Indeterminacy said...

I was thinking Neil Young at first. And I though I was so educated.

 
At 12:09, Blogger Minka said...

Indy, I am honoured. Thanks for stopping by and I know that youa re educated ;)

 
At 12:09, Blogger Minka said...

Miz B. Thank you for all teh attention you bestow on me and my blog...one in a gazillion you are!

 
At 01:57, Blogger Sar said...

Minka, please forgive my absence of late. Between vacations and The Brother's visit, I've been offline more often than not.

But, guess what, I'm the 47th comment here! Whooohoooo! :)

Mucho Love my Iclandic German, Sistah!

PS - lova da feet!

 
At 11:10, Blogger Minka said...

Sar, I know people are having a life outside blogging. God knows, I am trying to get me one of those :)
Your absence I never take as neglect, but rather of you being otherwise engaged :)

Those feet are sorta tired this morning, a foot message would do a world of wonders :)
