Six Years and Ten Million Hits Later…


what the hell happened cover art

This month marks a couple of important milestones for Le Blog.  I started the site six years ago.  The first article posted May 17, 2010.  Ordinarily, I would let a six-year anniversary pass unremarked on.  But on top of that, the site reached 10 million hits this morning!  In celebration of that landmark, I thought I would look back at the first six years of Le Blog.

Pop Culture Quiz: What the Hell Happened Quiz: Robots Edition *Results*


robots 3

As we wrap up our look back at movie robots, it’s time to review the results of our Pop Culture Quiz.

Participation was down this time around.  Not sure if it was due to lack of interest or something else.  Scores were down a bit too.  The average was just over 40%.  The high score was 70%.  There were two respondents who tied for first place with the rank of Terminator.  No Brainiacs unfortunately.  We did have a Sleeper which means someone scored less than 20%.  Just to put that in perspective, the law of averages means you should score 25% if you guess.

Now that we know how everyone performed, let’s review the questions.

As we wrap up our look back at 1995, it’s time to review the results of our Pop Culture Quiz.

I felt like the 1985 quiz was a little trickier than usual so I wanted to go easy on you guys this time.  But not too easy!  Sure enough, there was a slight uptick in average scores.  We’ve been hovering around 40%.  This quiz, the average was up to 48%.  Not bad at all.

We’re about half-way through our look at the movies of 1995.  And you know what that means.  Pop quiz!  1995 was a really solid year for movies.  And unfortunately, there was only room for 16 movies in the bracket game.  So we’re going to focus on some of the year’s other offerings in today’s Pop Culture Quiz.

Last chance to look at your notes.  The quiz starts after the jump.

Pop Culture Quiz: What the Hell Happened Quiz: 1985 Edition *Results*

For the last couple of weeks, we’ve been flashing back 30 years in 1985.  With the winner of the bracket game announced, all that’s left to do is to review the results of our 1985 Pop Culture Quiz.

I thought this quiz was tougher than usual.  But the scores were pretty consistent with previous quizzes.   Once again, no one scored 100%.  The average score was 45.6% which was actually higher than the average for the Christmas edition.  So good job everyone!

Movies of 1985 sepia

As we wrap up our look back at the movies of 1985, it’s time to put your memory to the test with a 1985 pop culture quiz.  This one is hard!  I have adjusted the scoring system to reflect that we’re dealing with some obscure movies from 30 years ago.  Heck, there’s even a question about a commercial for mashed potatoes.  Good luck with that one!

The quiz starts after the jump.

Pop Culture Quiz: What the Hell Happened Quiz: Christmas Edition *Results*


Quiz Santa

We have been celebrating Christmas all month here at Le Blog.  We’ve been running a daily bracket game to pick your favorite Christmas movie and we had a Christmas-themed pop culture quiz.  If all of this seems a little familiar, it’s because we did the same activities last month to promote the Chevy Chase episode of our podcast.  So it probably comes as no surprise when I tell you that this past weekend, Daffy Stardust and I recorded the next full episode of the podcast and it will have a Christmas theme.  HA!  You didn’t think I was getting all Christmasy for nothing, did you?

Anyway, it’s time to review the answers from last week’s quiz.  I will say it was a tough one.  Absolutely no one scored 100%.  The average score was 40%.  So if you got more than half right, you can definitely feel pretty good about yourself.

SNL Quiz

We’ve had a couple weeks of Saturday Night Live-related fun here at Le Blog in celebration of the Chevy Chase episode of our podcast.  If I haven’t convinced you to give it a try by now, I’m probably not going to.  But what the heck?  Give it a try.  It’s the best Chevy Chase podcast I have listened to all year.

Yesterday we proclaimed Bill Murray the champion in our first ever bracket game.  Definitely looking forward to doing more of those in the future.  And today, we’re wrapping up the SNL activities by reviewing the answers from our WTHH quiz.
