Topic More stupid questions! :D Go to previous topic Go to next topic Go to higher level

Much the same as the orginal stupid questions thread, except now I have a stupid question so i thought i'd start a new one :D

how do you pronounce Alphonse Mucha?

this as been bugging me for ages (google was no help!), hes my favourite artist and i have some little prints on my school books which people always admire. I'm so sick of looking ignorant by not being about to pronounce his name properly :/

Hey, I looked in a couple of subscription-only databases I have access to at work. They have art dictionaries and biographies in them among other things.

None included name pronunciation guides :( but I did read that he was Czechoslovakian, so maybe you could find out through some Czech resources?

If all else fails give the reference librarians at your local university/public library something fun to do. Not an easy one!

My dumb question:

What do you use to get the residue from band-aid adhesive off your skin? It annoys me.

By looloo On 04/06/04  

I use rubbing alcohol, but I have an obsession with rubbing alcohol and look for a reason to use it. That or eye make up remover.

My stupid question....

Where the Ramones a real band prior to "Rock n Roll Highschool" the movie or did they just not gain popularity until then? I am not old enough to know this...

By none On 04/06/04  

i'm going to guess pre-Rock n' Roll Highschool. i don't know how that movie could make anyone famous.

Al -fawns Moo- shah (that's roughly how I pronounce it)

I've always heard it Moo-ka.
Yes, they were a real band.

I believe in general the 'ch' is prounounced as a hard 'k' sound in Czech and other Slovakian languages. (Look at the 'ch' in Czech for example).

oh god please don't put lighter fluid on your skin!

By crazybones On 04/07/04  

use baby oil, or a cooking oil to remove the adhesive. Even lotion would work (something greasy will help get it off.)
