  3. 3. Questions set by: Angshuman Biswas Siddhanth Purkayastha Sandipan Goswami
  4. 4. “Barbara Ann” is a song written by Fred Fassert and first recorded in 1961 by The Regents. The most famous cover version of the song is by the Beach Boys, which was released as a single in 1965. The song was parodied as “Bomb Iran” by various musicians, including Vince Vance and the Valiants, during the 1979 Iran hostage crisis. Where, in recent times, might you have heard another parody of the song?
  5. 5. Answer The Banana Song (from the teaser trailer of Despicable Me 2)
  6. 6. X, or X-ism, was an art movement of the European avant-garde in the early 20th century. It began in Zurich in 1916, spreading to Berlin shortly thereafter, but the height of the movement in New York was the year before, in 1915. The term anti-art, a precursor to X, was coined by Marcel Duchamp around 1913 when he created his first readymades. In addition to being anti-war, the movement had political affinities with the radical left and was also anti-bourgeois. The origin of the word X is unclear; some believe that it is a nonsensical word. Others maintain that it originates from the Romanian artists Tristan Tzara's and Marcel Janco's frequent use of the words “__, __," meaning "yes, yes" in the Romanian language. Another theory says that the name came during a meeting of the group when a paper knife stuck into a French-German dictionary happened to point to ‘X', a French word for 'hobbyhorse'. X?
  7. 7. Answer Dada / Dadaism
  8. 8. X (acronym of the Russian for “Death to Spies”) was an umbrella name for three independent counter-intelligence agencies in the Red Army formed in late 1942 or even earlier, but officially founded on 14 April 1943. The name X was coined by Joseph Stalin. The main reason for its creation was to subvert the attempts by German forces to infiltrate the Red Army. It served as the inspiration for a fictional organization having the same name, although the novels portray X as a massive Soviet counterintelligence organization, much more resembling the real-life KGB, which aims its operatives abroad in subversion of the West, with the additional goal of killing Western spies. In the film series, X is usually replaced by Y. Y began in the novels as a small group of criminals but became a vast international organization with its own island training base in the films. Y is not aligned to any nation or political ideology, enabling the later books and films to be regarded as somewhat apolitical though the former Gestapo members are a clear sign of the author’s warning of the Nazi fascists surviving after WWII. X and Y?
  9. 9. Answer X – SMERSH Y – SPRECTRE
  10. 10. The cover art of Miles Davis’s major label debut album and that of John Coltrane’s second studio album, as well as their titles, are directly influenced by the paintings produced by a painter between 1901 and 1904, usually defined by the term X, which is also the title of the former album. What is the term and who is the painter? (pic in next slide)

Kenneth Branagh has done six of these, in 1989, in 1993, in 1996, in 2000 and in 2006. X has done three of these, in 2003, in 2006 and in 2014, completing his trilogy. What are we talking about, and who is X?
  13. 13. Answer Shakespeare adaptations; Vishal Bhardwaj
  14. 14. The album art for Cheap Thrills, the second album from Big Brothrt and the Holding Company, their last with Janis Joplin as primary lead vocalist was drawn by X after the band's original cover idea, a picture of the group naked in bed together, was dropped by the record company. The back story behind the album cover is as follows: “Yeah, I’ll do your album cover,” X once told the band’s roadie. “But the only thing is, when I meet Janis, I want to be able to pinch her tit.” That he did, eventually, after the album came out in 1968, at a party. She said, “Oh, honey.” Who is X? (pic in next slide)
  15. 15. Answer Robert Crumb
  16. 16. X was inspired to make the film after reading L.A. Quartet, a sequence of four crime fiction novels by James Ellroy, set in the late 1940s through the late 1950s in Los Angeles.
