Ready for Quiz #22?

Huzzah!

.

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!

Thanks for playing!

Verbalize the Positive

In high school/university, Rivers Cuomo would have been my favourite lead singer/lead guitarist.

More recently, Chuck Klosterman would likely be my current favourite author.

What do these favourites of mine have in common? Both sing &/or say that this week’s artist is their favourite band!

    500. Not a big fan but I’ve known them most of my life. Incidentally, they played a show down the street at Canadian Tire Centre recently and apparently, it was a great show.

  10. Another deuce this week. 200 please.

  12. Sorry I’ve missed so many quizzes by the way! I have many projects on the go and just cannot keep up and I’m sorry! Glad I didn’t miss this one of course.

    • No worries Mike – given the artist, I likely should have just recorded a 500 for you today before waiting for a message anyways!

  13. 500 each for me and Mika. And because I apparently forgot to say it last week, 500 for each of us on that one too.

  14. 500! (Thanks to Dazed and Confused and the number of inside jokes I have with a friend about this band…)

  17. Easy 500 this week!
