The Quiz
I like making mix CDs. I usually make myself a new one every two or three months. But I really like to make them for other people. I mean, whether or not they put the resulting CDs in their version of "high rotation" is not important. It's putting something out there that maybe they'll enjoy or be influenced by. Kind-of like blogging.

Anyway, I'm planning on making a personalized mix CD for the person who scores highest on the following quiz. The quiz is about your preferences, not mine. So, when it reads "I/me/my" it means you. Got that?

There is a highly subjective, KL-based scoring system for each question. You should know that, for most questions, there is no more than one wrong answer (negative points). Some answers are neutral (no points), but many are varying degrees of correct-ness (positive points).

The quiz will run for one week. You can submit your entry in the comment section, or you can e-mail me your answers (link on the left). Oh, yeah . . . if I know you in the "real" world, you can still participate and may receive a CD if you win, but the CD will be customized for the blog-world entity who wins and not you.

Good luck!
