"Prime Time".... the answer to every question is a prime number: http://alpacafarmtrivia.herokuapp.com/quizzes/1992

Primo!

Note: There's an error in the proposed answer to one of the questions. D'Oh!!! But it doesn't affect the outcome, as the scoring is manual and the question, per se, is still valid.

1960s Pop/Rock Music Notables Who Died in 2015

In 2015 we lost a host of pop & rock music notables, many of whom first found fame in the 1960s. While some of these names, per se, may not be too recognizable today, the questions will target the context of their fame.... and maybe drop an extra clue or two in the wording to lead you to the answer.

Play here (open until the 23rd): http://alpacafarmtrivia.herokuapp.com/quizzes/2017

The eighth season of Archer begins April 5. Starting February 15, each week leading up to the premiere, I will publish a quiz on a successive season (starting with Season 1).

If you haven't watched the show before, get cracking; if you have, it doesn't hurt to brush up. This series of quizzes will penetrate deep!

Here is the first of two warm-ups: http://alpacafarmtrivia.herokuapp.com/quizzes/2054

I generally only do the music quizzes here and I must say that I've really enjoyed some of the most recent ones. I did pretty well (but not spectacularly so) on the two quizzes in which clips of original versions of songs were given and you had to give the name of the song and the artist that had the bigger hit with the song. I loved the quiz on songs with whistling in them although I had my head handed to me there.

OK, so I just discovered the Alpaca Farm and it looks like there's no way to message the host of a quiz? I have a question on 'Anagrams of Demi Lovato' - I'm assuming each phrase uses all the letters of her name and exactly once? Would anyone know? I'm stuck on a few, but I can make reasonable guesses if I repeat some letters.

I'm really looking forward to talking about the Top 100 of 1977 lyrics quiz after it closes.

Ah well, it appears that nobody here posts about these. I know that some of the folks here play the music quizzes I play though (like ElendilPickle) so I just wanted to say that the reason why I won the 1972 lyrics quiz so resoundingly (no pun intended) is that I noticed that all eight of the songs that I knew right off were Number One songs. As I know all of the songs that were Number One on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1972, I then tried plugging the remaining lyric clues into those songs until I found logical matches. Result: perfecto!

Of course, this doesn't make up for my embarrassing zero result on a music quiz about cover recordings because I stupidly forgot to put both the artist and song. Still smarting on that one. I estimate that I would have finished about eighth had I done it right.

Say, how would I go about attaching a sound recording to a question on the Alpaca Farm? I want to attach a clip from a podcast
