DURAN  DURAN

Answer: Duran Duran was one of the most successful bands of the 1980s, having sold more than 100 million records worldwide. Three members of Duran Duran have the last name Taylor, but none of them are actually related. The group was formed by keyboardist Nick Rhodes and bassist John Taylor, with the later addition of drummer Roger Taylor, and after numerous personnel changes, guitarist Andy Taylor and lead singer Simon Le Bon. The name Duran Duran came from the evil villain character Durand-Durand in the movie Barbarella. Some notable Duran Duran songs are 1982’s “Hungry Like The Wolf”, “Rio”, “A View To A Kill”, and “Ordinary World”.

The musical instrument, the triangle, belongs to what section of an orchestra?

Percussion

 

 the  answer  is   PERCUSSION     dgrimm60

 

Answer: The triangle is a percussion instrument that is made of a steel rod bent into the shape of – you guessed it – a triangle. And, as a percussion instrument, it is struck – most commonly with a metal beater, to give the instrument a bright, ringing tone. The triangle is an idiophone – or an instrument that, when struck, vibrates as a whole to produce a sound. The instrument is usually held by a loop of some form of thread or wire at the top curve. The triangle produces lots of overtones, or harmonics – which gives the instrument its distinctive sound.

PSYCHO

Answer: The 1960 movie “Pyscho” is the first American film where a toilet is shown being flushed. Screenwriter Joseph Stefano was hell-bent on having the movie feature a flushing toilet in order to accentuate the film's sense of realism, despite the fact that no major American film had ever done so before. Hitchcock supported the peculiar idea, on the condition that Stefano made it an organic part of the movie's story. The scene was an issue with censors, but ultimately made the cut. The end result proved shocking to audiences of the period, who were completely unaccustomed to seeing a toilet flush on the big screen.

JIM  CAREY

Answer: Captain Jack Sparrow is considered one of the most legendary cinematic characters of the 21st Century. With Johnny Depp's ground-breaking performance in bringing this pirateer to life, it's difficult to picture anyone else in the role. With this in mind, you may be surprised to learn that Johnny Depp wasn't actually the first choice for Jack Sparrow. Yes, initially, director Gore Verbinksi offered Jim Carrey the role of Jack Sparrow. Unfortunately for Carrey, production schedule of The Curse of The Black Pearl coinicided with the shoot of Bruce Almighty, presenting him with no choice but to pass up the role.

NORTH  DAKOTA

Answer: Bismarck is the capital of the state of North Dakota. In 1873, Bismarck was named in honor of German chancellor Otto von Bismarck. Bismarck, also known as the "Iron Chancellor", was the founder and first chancellor of the German Empire. Bismarck had a substantial influence on Europe in the 20th century especially in the unification of the German Empire. Bismarck was named after the German statesman with the hope of attracting German investors to the Northern Pacific Railroad. It is the only US state capital named for a foreign statesman.

CAT

Answer: Acoustic Kitty was a project launched by the CIA in the 1960s which intended to use cats to spy on the Kremlin and Soviet embassies. In an hour-long procedure a veterinary surgeon implanted a microphone in the cat's ear canal, a small radio transmitter at the base of its skull and a thin wire into its fur. This would allow the cat to innocuously record and transmit sound from its surroundings. The project was abandoned due to the difficulty of training the cat to behave as required. Acoustic Kitty was considered a failure and cancelled in 1967.
