Mis establos!!!

None of the science or medical information I might post to this blog should be taken as medical advice (I'm not medically trained). Think of this blog as a sort of nursery for my half-baked ideas hence 'stuff that occurs to me'.

I work on the EPSRC-funded @CHI_MED project; all views are my own. I used to work at Diabetes UK (until 22 June 2012) as a Science Information Officer (effectively a science-specialist librarian but not quite a clinical librarian). Before that it was ScienceLine and back in the mists of time it was lipid chemistry & neuroscience.

Oh OK then it's jo dot brodie at gmail dot com

Film quiz - logos edition

Edit: 25 April 2012
If you've arrive here looking for the iPhone Logos Quiz app (and from Google Analytics it seems that you probably are) then the link is http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/logos-quiz-game/id478364212?mt=8 

Jump to the bottom for a movie theme (or incidental music from a movie) quiz that I found on YouTube.



Many of us of a certain age have warm feelings towards the Pearl & Dean logo / ident (what are these things called?!) that used to appear before the main feature and everyone would sing along.

Whenever I go and see a film I always try and guess the film production or distribution company logo / ident / whatever before the logo resolves on screen. In case anyone else wants a go at playing this game I've picked ten of these logos and taken a screenshot at a point when I think the name of the company might be on the tip of your tongue... I wouldn't be surprised if they come after me and ask me to take the images down, and I will totally cave :)

Edit: 25 April 2012
Before we start I should acknowledge that not everyone likes these - here's Family Guy's Peter Griffin getting pretty miffed at a selection of studio logos (oh so that's what they're called) before whatever film he's gone to see with Brian.

  3. Well done, that looks about right :)

    Did you come here looking for something else - I wondered why this post was suddenly starting to get hits and then spotted there was some new logos app on the App store haha.

Comment policy: I enthusiastically welcome corrections and I entertain polite disagreement ;) Because of the nature of this blog it attracts a LOT - 5 a day at the moment - of spam comments (I write about spam practices,misleading marketing and unevidenced quackery) and so I'm more likely to post a pasted version of your comment, removing any hyperlinks.

Comments written in ALL CAPS LOCK will be deleted and I won't publish any pro-homeopathy comments, that ship has sailed I'm afraid (it's nonsense).
