Ready for Quiz #6

Okelie dokelie!


Quiz Rules/Format
(Same as last year, feel free to skip to the quiz if you know the rules already)

Your Task: Name the mystery Artist, ideally with as few clues as possible.

Correctly guess the artist on the first clue? 500 points.

After scrolling down to the second clue? 400 points.

Still don’t know after the fifth clue? 0 points, but a crisp high-five for participating.

I’ll use google translate to put the correct answer at the bottom in Arabic (if you read Arabic, that’s fantastic, but no cheating by reading ahead!) and you can translate it back to the language of your choice to confirm your answer.

In the comments, please enter your POINTS earned (not the artist name) and I’ll keep track of the running totals in a spreadsheet.

In addition to eternal bragging rights, the winner at the end of the year may even get something as prestigious as a digital certificate.

Here goes!

Verbalize the Positive

Kudos to the world wide web – I remembered there was a movie (but had no recollection of the name) in the 90s where the actor from Weekend at Bernie’s was convinced that in order to be his one true love, his eventual spouse needed to have been in the crowd at “The Concert” in 1981.

And with only that information, the www impressively came up with the film: Two Guys Talkin’ About Girls!

  1. 500. You had me at Newark.

    • Nice! I believe we discussed Flight of the Conchords recently – there’s a great scene where the band manager leads them to believe they’ve got a gig at Central park in New York, but it turns out it was A central park in Newark!

      • There are only limited opportunities for day time gigs. And playing at night is too dangerous.

    400 for me.

    • Nicely done JP – I know we’re both well versed in ‘Gordon’ where his partner gets name-checked in $1,000,000!

  3. Another one I’m glad other people enjoy. 500 for me.

  4. What a cool first clue. There must be fifty ways to phrase this question. 500.

  5. 500, lucky geography question there.

  6. 500 – lucky date of birth guess. Newark for me will always mean a small town in Nottinghamshire. Which of course means nothing to you Canadians…?

    • Well guessed Kid Slender – and I think we have the UK to thank for inspiring the majority of our town names in North America!

  7. 400 points

  8. A phenomenally lucky guess gets me 500!

  9. 500!! I was just reading something about that concert.

  10. 500 I was in Grade 9 and this concert got a lot of coverage…

  11. I guessed at 500. And was sure at 400.

  12. 500! An artist I was late to the party for, but am glad I caught up.

  13. OMG got another 500!!!

  14. Zack permalink

    Damn. Only 200 points this week. I’m embarrassed.

  15. 200. I’m ashamed I didn’t get it sooner. Though I’m glad to know there’s a Weekend at Bernie’s connection!

    • Not to worry Amrita – I’ll try to work a Weekend @ Bernie’s reference into a 500 clue as the year goes on!

  16. 400 for me. I sometimes get the train to the station that Homeward Bound was written on.

  17. 400 for me. I like it when Chevy Chase shows up in his videos.

  18. 400 for me, 400 for Mika.

  19. Only 300, bloody hippies! Just joking 🙂

  20. Oh dear. 200 this time.

  21. 500 for this week
