a few notes about my entry: The guitar player has a pick between his thumb and index finger. you can’t really see it but it’s there. I thought it would be funny to make the drummer wear no pants, making him a crazy guy like Keith Moon of the Who.


Another note about @fcharr’s entry: The singers hand gesture (mano cornuta) was popularized in heavy metal by Ronnie James Dio who (unfortunately) died May 16, 2010. Exactly ten years before fcharr submitted his entry.


I didn’t believe it myself. I went back to check, the entry is dated May 16 at about 10:00 PM. My decision to pose him like that was whimsical. I was thinking of Rob Halford kicking the phone… Truly daunting :metal: :open_mouth:

To be honest, I wasn’t aware of the fact but as soon as my local radio station went into full Dio-mode, I knew something was going on. Has it really been ten years? I would have bet money on you placing the reference on purpose. :metal: :wink:

Is the drummer without pants also a reference to something? :smiley:

You know what, if it is, I’d rather not know…

no, it’s just a vague reference to your run of the mill crazy drummer :wink:

I know that kind of drummers…

And this one even still has his pants on. :wink:

And… the winner of Weekend Challenge 882 with votes from 41.7% of the voters is… Millani!
Here’s to all the great participators…



Congrats Millani on beating my 3 picks Robert, Beau, and Canadian. I was so close to being the last in line this week. That would have been too much :open_mouth:


Congrats Millani! It was such a fun challenge. I can’t wait for next weekend :). Thanks to everyone who voted and got involved.

What a pity. Now, you will probably never know if you’re evil or divine. Better luck next time. I guess, the thrill of just the chase will be worth the pain.

Here you go: Alchemy :slight_smile:


Congrats @Millani
