2019 Artists of the Week (so far): George Harrison, Notorious B.I.G.


My thanks to all who have participated in the “Artist of the Week” quizzes so far.

Congrats to all those who correctly identified the Notorious B.I.G. last week.

The results after 2 weeks (as of Friday evening – results submitted after that time will be added next week):


after 2


Ready for Quiz #3?



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!

    We’re somewhat back in business. 400 points please good sir, even if it was only a (very good) guess

  2. To be frank, I scored 500.

  3. jprobichaud permalink

    Another 400 for me. I couldn’t say for sure if I’ve ever listened to one of her songs, though I definitely know who she is.

    • Outside of Frank, I think I only know a couple of singles – but I’d say 400’s a fine score considering your limited time spent listening JP!

  4. 500 thankfully, or I would be whining again.

  5. 500 for me please.

  6. 400. My wife is a fan.

  7. 500, love them!

  8. 500 for me, thank you please.

  9. 500 please. F’ Me I’m Pumped.

  10. 500! I found Frank at a Thrift Store for $1. I wouldn’t have known otherwise.

  11. HA…
    I was stumped until the Bottle of Hip Wine and the awesome drawing….
    200 man….
    U could have really tricked it up by making the answer April Wine!
    Than I get 500 and everyone else 100…hahaha

    • That hip bottle was delicious – and based on my visual arts skills, I’m all the more grateful that Sarca designs the logos around here!
      We’re having some Thunder Bay esque weather here today Deke (20 cm and -20), still have a ways to go before we catch up to your 2019 snowfall, but we’re getting a taste of it this morning!

  12. Easy Peazy lemon squeezy – 500 for me.

    And I agree with the Dekester about the drawing. Possibly your best work.

  13. I’ll take 300 today.

  14. 500 here

  15. 400 for me, 500 for Mika

  16. Zack permalink


  17. Straight 500 please.

  18. I see this one at work frequently. 500 for me!
