It is a while still till Sunrise - and in the daytime I sleep, my dear fellow, I sleep the very deepest of sleeps...




Post in this thread before 17th December if you want to join the quiz!

The quiz will take place on 17th December 2014 at 6PM PST.

Here are the rules:

1: Don't post answers in the thread, type them somewhere seperately and either PM them to me or email them to professorclumsy@gmail.com

2: Post in the thread before the quiz starts to join in, the cut off point for late entries is the posting of round 3. There is some leeway on this though, best to just ask in the thread.

3: Don't make up your own rules, you don't get extra points unless I say so.

4: If I suspect cheating, you will be disqualified. This will bring shame on your familiesand you will be ousted from your local communities.

5: Just try to enjoy to enjoy yourself for once in your life, you miserable poo poo.

Breaking these rules will result in my coming to your house and crying for hours about how you never listen to me anymore and how you're never there for me and I just don't feel like I can open up to you now, you're turnng into your mother and it's not good, you didn't water my plants while I was away and they died and I can't help but feel that those dead plants are a metaphor for our relationship now which is why I can't brng myself to throe them away.



Here's how the quiz is going to go down:

Round one: The portrait round.

You'll see a selection of portraits, all you have to do is identify the person in the portrait for a point each.

Round two: The Dreaded Audio Round.

The Audio Round is a little different now, instead of purely consisting of soundtracks, there will be other audio clips of dialogue and even sound effects to guess blindly at.

Round Three: General Movie Knowledge.

This is the bit where I ask questions and you provide answers, like off the telly. They're all about films, though, so try to have seen some.

There is a tie-break contingency, we'll see if it comes to that.

And that's it. Any questions, post them in here. If you're playing, post in the thread and make sure you let me know how you'll be submitting answers - email (cinedpubquiz@hotmail.co.uk), PM or AIM (profclumumumsy).

Happy non-denominational Winter celebration period.

I might as well get in on this (I think I played one previous year) - sounds fun! I'll send via PM.

I know what you did last summer, and frankly I am displeased.

This is a thing I will do.

Perhaps it's in the nature of television. Just waves in space.


Your reigning champion will most likely be down for this, depending on if I get out of work on time. I'll be in through PMs.

Edit- Wait, I'm not in the OP. I am outraged. I definitely won the last one.

All I remember is people being racist about who the actor playing Moneypenny was and the tie-breaker being reciting the poem from The Grey.

Sadly, I'm going to have to cancel this as something has come up. Maybe some other time.
