A new look and a late Quiz! – guessing closed

I needed a pick-me-up last night so I took 45 minutes and completely changed the layout and look of the blog.  I needed it, but don’t know if I’ll keep it. What do you think?

Once  you figure out a few of the titles for this quiz I know it will make the rest easier (hint-they all share a common word)!  I’ll give you a few extra points if you know the author.  And, as you can see, Razzi was very interested in this quiz.

Leave your guesses in a comment.  Good luck!
