Ready for Quiz #14?

I set this quiz to go live at 11:57 p.m., just Minutes to Midnight!

.

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!

  1. 300 as I recognized the car

  2. 500, although I tend to get the bands from that era and scene a little confused – not really my thing.

    • I imagine many would also mix up the assortment of ‘The’ bands from a few years later as well!

  3. I went to a park one time and found bag stuffed with 500 Canadian Tire Dollars. lol. How’s that for trickery?

  4. Just 200 today.

  5. Zack permalink

    500. I’m on a roll!

  6. 500 for me as it is one of my favorite albums!!

  7. 400. Just trying to keep up with Sarah now!

    400 this week. For some reason, I knew some of the band members’ names.

    I’ve only read Best Laid Plans and the sequel and I quite liked them.

    • You never know when such knowledge will come in handy, JP!
      And speaking of specific knowledge, as an Ottawan, you’d likely appreciate the latest adventure as well. Lots of the plot revolves around specific Ottawa geography (NAC, Parliament Hill, The Rideau, etc)

  9. 500 each for both me and Mika.

  10. 300 points, please! Good thing I have a friend that really likes this band!

  11. Paul permalink

    400 this week – not into them but the rap/song clue led to a good guess

  12. Harrison permalink

    Oopsies, missed this. 300 please.

  13. 500, I see that album at work all the time!
