Ready for Quiz #37?

Yes sir, No sir!

.

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

a) Love She’s Got a Hat like Princess Marina!

b) It was four years ago today (September 15th) that a community of bloggers compiled “Top 15 on the 15th” lists – likely my favourite individual day of blogging thus far!

  1. I really got me 500 points.

  2. Love the pic clue. 500 easy ones.

  3. 500. The family that plays together, stays together. And beats the crap out of each other on stage. Together.

  4. Harrison permalink

    400 please

  5. “And I love to live so pleasantly
    Live this life of luxury” … with 500 points plea

  6. 500 Points Yet Again! 3 weeks running!
    I will add that pic of the hose is brilliant!
    Good stuff!

    • Cheers Deke – and you are on a roll, a hat trick of 500s!

      • Right before the NHL season starts!

      • And the Rangers are looking promising this year too!

      • Actaully Geoff I psyched to see how they do. I’m glad they have moved out a ton of payroll over the last few years and have stayed the cousre and they got Panarin cheaper than what some others were offering but the breadman still got paid..
        Great move in trading for picks a few years back.
        Finishing in the Top 8 in the regualr season I will be happy with.

      • I saw the clip of Kakko’s wraparound the other day, he’ll be dangerous in the 3-on-3 OTs!
        The metro looks wide open – it feels like Washington’s a safe bet, but then none of the other teams (my beloved Penguins included!) feel like absolute locks. I wouldn’t be surprised though if it’s another year where both wild cards come from their division!

      • Yeah and Kakko looks excellent as well. RANGERS have made out ok. We shall see!

  7. jprobichaud permalink

    I know the Davies brothers. 500.

  8. Zack permalink

    500. All day and all of the night.

  9. 500 for a dedicated follower of 60’s music.

  10. Like a good homo sapien, can I have 600 C-O-L-A colas, Sir?

    I often wonder when I think about blogging, and maybe you can tell me because I discovered yours 4 years ago, where have all the good times gone?

  11. 500 — I am in paradise… (One of my favourite bands!)

  12. 500 for me and for Mika.

  13. I would be ashamed for anything less than 500 as I share a surname.

  14. An easy 500 for me! I was just chatting with CB about these guys. I know I’m late again, so no need to change any graphics for me if you made it already!
