Long time, no see. A really simple one for today. What? Whose?





The Marshall Guitar Amp that goes "up to eleven", belonging to Spinal Tap's Nigel Tufnell.

Due to a mishap involving pornographic comment spam, all the answer-comments were deleted. My apologies for that. Everyone who answered got it right.




Well, connect the second and third picture to this man with the guitar. The third pic is a specific thing and not a generic one, just wanted to clear that.

And yes, this is a little vague.

Cyst says

perhaps it is the dog moose who played eddie on tv sitcom Frazier and has a son named "enzo" ... the car in third pic is ferrari enzo
Perhaps it IS!
Awesome answer.

Hmmm

Two paintings of the same object by an artist who created quite an impression. Identify and tell me why are they different?



Quoting Nilanjana

Monet's water lily series. He painted them during a period where he suffered from cataract. Ultimately he had his eye lens removed, which corrected the problem but allowed him to see ultraviolet light, thus the latter water lilies are painted in a more blue shade.
Cracked by Nilanjana, and well Vivek and Varun KR got it, though didnt write the whole answer, I'll give it t them. Simply mentioning Monet is not good enough, cummon guys!

Identify/Connect/Explain



Identify

Which very famous place is depicted in this painting.

Well, does this look familiar?

Now?

This is the famous Piccadilly Circus area of London and not Trafalgar Square as many said.

Mindbender

Whose car?


This car is the property of psychic spoonbender Uri Geller. A 1976 Cadillac, it is adorned with thousands of pieces of bent tableware given to him by celebrities or otherwise having historical or other significance.

Bent out of shape by NIKHIL, codenamev, and Ashwin Iyer. Fakepurseninja's guess twisted the wrong way.

Running out of titles

continuing with the tradition of easy ones , just connect the pics .




The first photo is of the Indonesian pop band "Peterpan", and the second is of Parveen Babi.The film "woh Lamhe" was based on Parveen Babi's life, and the song "kya mujhe pyaar hai" from the movie was copied from the song,"Tak Bisakah", by this Indonesian pop band.

All have grand slam stadiums named after them ( couldnt find a proper pic of Philippe Chatrier to make a centre/main court connect )

Mwhahahahaa!

Connect all the individual pics! :D
Clue would be that there's 'some' pictures missing; tie it to Friday the 13th.


Sigh...since no one's got the funda as yet, here's the answer; clockwise from left - Matsyasana(The Fish), Koormasana(The Tortoise), Simhasana(The Lion), Dhanurasana(The Bow), Chakrasana(The Wheel), Vatayanasana(The Horse), Halasana(The Plough) - representing Matsya, Koorma, Narasimha, Rama, Krishna, Kalki and Balarama respectively; the ones missing being Varaaha, Vaamana and Parashurama. The connect being obvious; the ten avatars of Vishnu; the funda with Friday the 13th; oh well...you know which movie hits the theatres today!

Excuse the arbitness! :)





ID the 4 pics and connect. Identifying the guy is difficult, so I'll give an oblique clue - the type of substances he first identified is of immense use in polymer synthesis.

Zuk hits on this - though the answer's quite popular. These are the precursor chemicals on which the Google Gulp Flavors were named. From top, beta carotene (Beta Carroty), Moses Gomberg (discoverer of free radicals, Sugar-Free Radical), Serotonin (Sero-Tonic Water) and Glutamic acid (Glutamate Grape).

Rather simple; just identify and connect the pictures. The answer happens to be one of the pics but what the heck! Oh and the list isn't exhaustive, if that's a clue at all...

Kubrick, Waters, Album art of Atom Heart Mother and movie poster of 2001: A Space Odyssey.Story goes that Kubrick requested waters for using music from Atom Heart Mother for A Clockwork Orange and Waters refused, a favor returned by Kubrick when Waters asked him for use of music from 2001: A Space Odyssey for one of his promos. Toughie, I guess.
Codename V came the closest and got half of it right.

Tell me a story.


Explain.

Funda is that there was this chap named James Buck, a US university Journalism student who had gone to Egypt. There him and his translator were captured by the police and he used twitter to get himself a lawyer (he just typed "arressted" and people came to his help, giving him legal advice etc). He then tried to get his translator out. Mohammed.
