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. John Lennon! 500 please!

  2. A dismal 200

  3. 0. Still no idea

  4. 500 each for me and Mika.

  5. Harrison permalink

    never heard of him, but I’ll take 300 please.

    • I’m pleased the photo clues helped earn the points despite not actually knowing the artist, Harrison!

      • Harrison permalink

        It’s a good reflection on the clue-writer.

  6. 400. Bit of a blind spot for me, it looks like – I had to some educated guessing on the 400 clue.

  7. Jack Lemmon? 😁

    Yikes, never heard of this artist, but 200 points from the pic clue.

  8. 300 and thank god for your pictures! lol

  9. Zack permalink

    I’m embarrassed I only got 300 for a fellow Ohioan, but I don’t think I’ve ever listened to his music.

    • Not to worry, Zack – If Chrissie Hynde is an artist at some point, you can redeem yourself with a perfect Ohioan 500 score then!

  10. 300 points for me! Good thing I saw that movie during my freshman year of college. Thanks for the quiz, Geoff!

  11. Yikes! 200.

  12. jprobichaud permalink

    300 for me. Little late getting to this week’s quiz, what with the power outage and all…

  13. 200 please.
