11 Nov 2017, Day 85

Question 1:
In the biography, "From Genesis to Growing Up", Chapter 14 discusses Surrealism in what Peter Gabriel song? Answer: Sledgehammer.

This is going to be a bit tedious, so bear with me. Type biography "From Genesis to Growing Up" into the search field to find the book written by Sarah Hill. Google Books has a copy scanned online for quick research. Go the book preview and in the "search in this book" field type Chapter 14, which is called "Plasticine Music: Surrealism in Peter Gabriel's Sledgehammer'". If you never seen the video you can watch it here. It's a wonder and fun example of pop culture surrealism.

Question 2:
Who was appointed to the High Court of Australia on the same day that the first woman was appointed to that bench? Answer: John Toohey.

Please see Day 10 for the explanation..

Question 3:
What is the last line of the poem in which the famous line about "Mistah Kurtz" is used as an epigraph? Answer: Not with a bang but a whimper.

The question provided all the clues for a one line query. Type poem "Mistah Kurtz" epigraph into the search field. The answer is T.S. Eliot's poem, The Hollow Men. The poem is within one of the links on the search page, scrol to the end of the 98 line work for the answer.
