Random Acts of Thursday - now broadcasting at one million watts

Are you sick of Bond trivia yet? Let's hope not. Officially (or not, depending on who you ask), eight actors portrayed Ernst Stavro Blofeld, head of SPECTRE and Bond's arch-nemesis. Only one of these actors was previously enlisted as an MI6 ally.

More importantly, this actor shares his name with a founding member of an early '80s post-punk alternative band.

And this means ESSAY QUESTION!

This means that you must 1) name the actor, 2) name the band, 3) identify the film, and 4) identify the setting both film and band's music share.

Extra credit: Share a recipe that embodies the spirit of the band or film.
Make sure you show your work. And despite the fact that I write these little trivia things for my health, you could pretend I'm not and actually go back and answer last week's question, too.

Are you kidding me with this? I'll be back when there's some reality TV trivia.

Elliott, my head is spinning!

Come on, you two! This is fun schtuff! And I don't "do" reality television beyond the occasional Top Chef marathon for Padma and the food, and Project Runway, for Heidi and the campy bitchiness of it all.

You don't "do" reality tv? My, aren't we sophistimicated. I'd "do" Padma. Just sayin'.

I have no idea who this is. Charles Gray?

Elliott said...

Harmony, that's 1/4 credit for you. Now, in which film did he portray Blofeld? Where did the climactic scene of the film take place? And what 80's band wrote a song about the same area?

I'm such a stickler, I know.

Diamonds are forever.

Oceanside, California?

Social Distortion?

Elliott said...

Harm - Right, wrong, and wrong. I figured since you answered #5 correctly on this week's you had this down.

You could still get extra credit for that recipe though...

NERD! I love James Bond, but geez! Hard stuff...

Elliott said...

Leanne - Glad you stopped over, check out this week's quiz, too, it might lend itself ever so slightly to a hint.

And I take nerd as a compliment.
