Meet the new boss.

This is notice that the quiz is coming, and a request for help or suggestions. I'm gonna try out a new rule this time - anyone can submit up to 5 lyrics and still compete in the quiz*. PM them to me by Friday, December 12. If anyone wants to contribute more (and, um, not compete), let me know.

For those of you not familiar with the quiz, here's the last one. Join the fun, don't cost nothin'.


*I can't guarantee I'll use them all. I might have to toss out duplicates or ones that suck or something.

Actually, I'm still writing the quiz and am planning to post it this weekend (or Monday the 22nd at the latest). So, if you still want to send me your 5 freebies, go ahead.

Hey, kiddies! I'm working on this year's quiz and can use your help. Like last year, you can contribute up to 5 song lyrics and still compete. That's 10 free points! (Out of 500.) Since I'm still trying to go as long as possible without repeating songs from past years, it would probably be best if you send me more than 5 (and then I can choose the best 5 among them), in case you submit a duplicate or something too obscure. What's "too obscure", you ask? My rule of thumb is that the songs should have at least gotten some radio airplay at some time, somewhere. It's not required that they charted (or that they're still in heavy rotation), but they shouldn't be deep cuts that someone would only know if he/she has the album.

So, please help me out if you can. Not only does this decrease the number of lyrics that I have to come up with, but it can up the diversity of the songs by bulking up some genres and/or eras that aren't my strong suits. Please PM lyrics to me by Saturday, December 19. I'm hoping to post the quiz the following week.

And maybe if we ask really nicely, bing will dust off the Crop-O-Matic and create another visual round. :D

Thanks to everyone who has sent in lyrics so far! There's still time if you'd like to contribute, too. I'll even extend the deadline a bit. As long as you get the lyrics to me by some time on Sunday, that would be great.

Good news, everyone! bing has already sent me a fabulous cover art round for this year's quiz. Thanks, bing!

Dang! I just finished a little quiz called "Batman's iPod" with 28 sections of album covers that may be on my woefully outdated 30GBiPod classic. Well, I guess I could release it for Memorial Day.

Well, lucky for you, I'm behind schedule every time. I'm not quite done yet. Can you get something to me by Tuesday night? That goes for anyone who still wants to contribute lyrics. The more you guys send in, the less work for me tomorrow. :)

I'm hoping to get the quiz posted Tuesday night, or Wednesday at the very latest. My goal is always to get this posted in time for you to print it out on the company printer before the office shuts down for Christmas.

I'm finally done, yay! After Excel does some randomizing and some concatenating, the quiz will be ready to post.

Is it 15 goat years or 15 human years?

It's that time again! Like I said last year:

Last year Batman (and maybe someone else, I apologize if I've forgotten someone) sent his lyrics with the answers in spoilervision, and that was very helpful because it allowed me to play along and test out the level of difficulty, so please do that with your submissions this year.
