It's over!

OK, the Mage Music contest is over and the winner will be notified and mailing address verified, and then will be announced.

Thank you all for participating - this has been fun!

PS - The normal Mage Music posts will start up again soon, but I think not on a weekly basis as I've done for nearly two years.

And the winner is.... one!

I found one entry submission in my spam folder - oops!  I have no idea how many others might have been in it and got deleted forever.  Unfortunately that one entry was amusing but incorrect.

So you all have a second chance!  I'm extending the contest for one week and to make it easier I'm putting all the questions here and I'm rewording some of them so they are more clear.


Question 1:
Who of the following did Jimmy Page meet with and discuss Magick?
  • Aleister Crowley 
  • Jareth, the Goblin King 
  • Louis H. Sullivan 
  • Pierre Teilhard de Chardin 
  • Thomas Carlyle 
  • William Burroughs 

Question 2:
What are the names of the following:
  1. The black avatar of arts - that creator and trickster - is an omen of omens (clue: his animal form)
  2. He reminds us of another rising into a red sky with the burden of humanity (clue: the light bearer)
  3. We hear the music and Magick of what Master? (clue: look in the URL)

Question 3:
  • Embryo No. 1 and Embryo No. 2 were both presented in what video?
  • What was No. 2's original name?
Submit your answers to no later than 11:59:59 PM MST (Denver time) Saturday December 21 (Winter Solstice).  

Put the word CONTEST in the subject line.

Good luck!

PS - You should receive a confirmation email stating that your entry was received. If you don't receive that email, please leave a comment below!

  • Email the answers to this address (you will have to remove the spaces):  fasterhorses @ and be sure to put Mage Music Contest in the subject line
  • DO NOT include anything in the body of the emails except for the answers to the questions.
  • All entries with 100% correct answers will have a chance to win.
  • The winning entry will be picked from the pot of all correct entries using a random number generator.

Contest update

I'll be out of town Friday & Saturday and though I scrambled to get the last question plus the whole contest form done before leaving, I didn't get it done.  So I'm sorry, but there'll be a delay till Sunday.
