View Full Version : Music quiz 651

18th Dec 2006, 01:05
Evening (morning) all. I'm a bit late. Had to shovel 10 inches of light flurries out of my driveway. :mad:

This quiz is a collaboration between scran and I, and will be scran's last but hopefully not his final quiz, but that's to be seen. Here's the message I had from the ol' gunslinger a couple of days ago for inclusion in tonight's effort.

After 5 years of running the music quiz, I now find it time to retire gracefully to the background. I have appreciated the assistance of the other Quizmeister - Pigboat, and the occasional efforts of players like Richo, the SSK and Jerry Coe who created quiz's and gave some support to Piggy and I. A special mention to the Memphis Belle - Planepsycho, who also sent me loads of trivia and lyrics questions over the last year. I believe that Piggy will find it difficult to step up to the mark and do the quiz every week, so perhaps someone out there may step up to the plate and help him out. I'll certainly give anyone encouragement.

To everyone who has enjoyed the quiz during my time (even you unclenelli...), thank you for your participartion - it was because of you people that I did the quiz for so long. I'll still have access to read Pprune but not post) so will watch with interest where my baby goes...

That was from scran. This is from me. It has been a pleasure buddy. :ok:


1...Questions posted on Monday, scran time. Answers whenever I feel like it.

2...2 points for each lyrics question, one for the song title and one for the artist. SOTW/AOTW and trivia questions are normally worth a point apiece, but some questions may ask for additional information, worth extra points.

3...The clue in the lyrics section may be any line or lines from the song or chorus.

4...The judge's decision is final. Yeah, right.

5...During the first 24 hours or until the first set of answers are posted, only one post, containing as many answers as you like will be accepted. Additional posts will be ignored and edited posts will be disqualified. After 24 hours or after the first set of answers have been posted, there are no restrictions on posts (free for all).

Ah, thanks SSK - I recognised the words and could 'sing' the tune, mentally for the well-being of my office companions, could not remember the title though.

Can I add that the leader of the three blind mice in the operning scene of Dr. No was Ian Fleming's dentist, information I got from Tim Moxon who played 006, the first person shot in a Bond movie. He used to keep a restauant in Jamaica where daughter's ex-boyfriend cousin worked, now that's completely useless information isn't it?


18th Dec 2006, 20:06
Ok folks, I'm a little early. I've got an early curling game.

Initial scores

Richo 21
Aotw 13

An extra point for Pseudonymn 'cause it was her birthday last week. ;)

Copterfan, are you getting any sleep yet? :p

Here's a site for anyone with small children, sponsored by the North American Air Defence Command (NORAD) that tracks Santa Claus
Track Santa Claus (http://www.noradsanta.org/en/default.php).
Check for the exact time on Christmas Eve, from whever you live.

It's too late this year, but if you have your kids address a letter to Santa Claus, North Pole, Canada, H0H 0H0, I'm sure you'll get a reply. It's a bunch of volunteers from Canada Post that run the place, and they say they reply to every letter they recieve. At the prices they charge to mail stuff, they can well afford it. There's also a site in Finland that does the same thing, but I forget the address.

18th Dec 2006, 21:48
Sleep Pigboat, what's that then?:{

But it's tougher on the trouble and strife!

Wish I could be on the PC all the awake time, then I'd murder the quiz (maybe...:} ), but she reckons I have to do all this 'looking after him' stuff...women eh....?

<<Checks she's not watching whilst typing>> Too late!

18th Dec 2006, 22:22
Piggy, I have all of Foxyworthy's CDs (matter of fact, I have all the CDs by all the Blue Collar artists, and just saw Ron White in Vegas last week).

My fave is in the same bit as yours:

"There's always some lady in the mumu and sponge-rollers talking about how the tornado sounded. "It was pandelirium! I thought we'd be killt or even worse! I looked up to see the neighbor's house flying right over the top of our garage! All I could think was "Carolyn still has my casserole dish!"""

:D :D :D

18th Dec 2006, 23:42
Couple more Piggy and im done...
Didnt even look at the AOTW2 or much of the triv as i figured i has pretty much cleaned out oh oh seven so would leave some for others..

More Bond - Man i gottem mixed up yesterday... (must be my disperplexia)
2. Diamonds are Forever.
3. Thunderball.
5. Lulu
6. you only live twice.

The spy who loved me is still my fav tho. As a kid seeing the underwater Lotus was the coolest, plus someone bought me one (i was 7). Has the best bond girl (B Bach) although she fell in the ranks to Carole Bouquet and then Isabella Scorupco, the best song and the best opening sequence.

Although i must say im a huge fan of the Chris Cornell song - You know my name from the new Casino Royale.

Thanks for all your fine work this year too Piggy, a very merry Xmas to you and your loved ones and to all my fellow quizzers. :ok:


19th Dec 2006, 00:27
I can only say that I will miss you Scran and I hope you come back soon.:) You pioneered the music quiz, and I know all of us who participate appreciate the time and effort you and Pigboat put into making up the quizzes for our entertainment each week.

Some more correct answers folks, scores corrected accordingly.

Yeah RD, that Blue Collar stuff is a riot. Ron White getting thrown outta the bar in NYC, and Larry The Cable Guy eating his girl friend's edible undies on the way over to her house, man that's fine stuff. "Them strawberry ones ain't bad!" :D :p

19th Dec 2006, 08:29
An extra point for Pseudonymn 'cause it was her birthday last week. ;)

Thanks, Piggy. If I knew turning 30 would give me extra points, I'd arrange to do it every few months. :E

The house is really quiet now, my mum and sister have gone back to Sydney and hubby is in Townsville for three nights... :(

20th Dec 2006, 12:45
Damn it all you guys....................stop making me cry :{ :{ :{
I'm seriously considering a career change (well, I would if they made a formal job offer.....:ugh: :ugh: ) that would be (in my humble opinion) a good move for me and very interesting.
I just don't think that if it comes off, I'll have time to devote to the quiz, and the Computer Nazi's at the current work have now blocked my posting on Pprune (I'm doing this from home).
I've made some great friends via the quiz, several of whom I have met (cheers Richo - your buy next round) including such legends as ORAC and Jolly Hockeysticks. Oh....and Cooda of course :E :ok: :ok: :ok:
I'll still drop by to make sure things are up to standard :eek:
and let you all know (if any of you care) how I get on with the application (but as Maverick says in TOP GUN, it's looking good so far......:ok: :ok: :ok: )
Looking to some people to help Pigboat out next year ( I KNOW how hard it is to do the quiz every week....:eek: :rolleyes: ).
Merry and safe Christmas to all players - thanks for 5 great years and some good memories...................

20th Dec 2006, 13:31
All the best for the New Year to you too, scran and thanks again for the effort that goes into these quizzes.
