Intros Quizzes combo

December 13th, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

This lot is the collated history of the Intros Quizzes I’ve banged together from October 2007 to December 2008, minus the quizzes of TV themes and the year 1978, which have been lost.

The collated file comes in response to Stefan from Sweden who, well, asked for it because many of the older quizzes couldn’t be downloaded any longer (ZShare being crocked, and DivShare having deleted a few folders of mine).

A couple of people have asked me to repost the first two volumes of the Any Major Funk mix. I’m afraid that, unlike the quizzes, I’ve not backed up the zipped files. So I’ll have to collate the files again from wherever they are sitting in my collection. I’m a bit snowed under (in sunny South Africa, ho ho ho) at the moment, but I’ll make that task a blog priority as soon as I can.

Anyway, the intros quizzes are posted in the first week of every month, usually on a particular theme. Much of 2009 will revisit the charts in five-year increments, from 1969-2004. Or should I start with 1964? What do you think?


In move-related news, I’ve had more hits today than I used to get in the old joint on Saturdays. I find that very encouraging indeed. So, thank you, the 667 of you, for dropping in.

Oh, and I think I’ve managed to create a WordPress avatar. Be assured I look nothing like the avatar (see, it’s an image of The Dude). Actually, it looks a bit like John Doran of The Quietus

    What a nice new home! I hope it’s trouble-free for you. I’ve changed my blog link to you, and my bookmark.

    I got dinged again myself; you’ll have to let me know, once you’ve settled in over time, how welcoming it is here.

    Thanks, Dane. I’m not sure whether WordPress does the DMCA thing; I’ve not heard anything like that happening. The move was remarkably easy. You can import your Blogger posts with one click into WordPress. The links I did manually, though I think it can be automated too. Drawback: no access to Google Analytics and no way to add plug-ins in the free version. But the in-built stats section is OK.

    Thanks for the quizzes. A great game last Xmas and I’m hoping to shame my vinylophile son yet again.

    Oh man, it makes me feel really good that somebody is making the quizzes a family event at Christmas. Thanks for telling me, Richard.
