If you're gonna have sex in there, can it just be the sex and not the Greek mythology? And not the reproductive biology?

In fact, how 'bout just sticking to the porn?

:wink:


y'know... that's what i was gonna do... but they don't allow it. dang it.

Saturday brings us the start of a new monthly tournament, and with it a new custom quiz on Movie Mania: "Vampires & Werewolves." I hope you remember your AICN history and memes, and for those who don't, I offer the following hint:

The film that Saturday's custom quiz will deal with features one of the actors pictured in the new photo up on Movie Mania.

All right, all right! I played! I wasn't going to, because I know I'm going to miss some days around Christmas etc.

But I played - as a Special Favor To You Guys.

Bax, watch out. You never know when I'll pounce! (Frankly, I never know when I'll pounce, too ...)

And Phonz, don't for one minute think I can possibly beat you at the music quiz.

Wait - that didn't come out right.

Wait again - yes it did.

So....

The last couple of days we've had a maximum of five contestents on any of the quizes. With that many people, the difference between first and last place on any day is one point.

So the question must be asked... as much as I obsesss about the quizes... should we shut this down for a few months?

Nah, I think we should keep going as the ragtag band of rebels that we are. But I've thought about looking into a new platform that might get people jazzed again. Let's all research other trivia sites and report back here. Maybe we can usher in the New Year with a fresh platform, and in the meantime enjoy the nailbiter of a five or six person game.

For the lurkers keeping tabs, last Saturday's custom quiz was all about THE MATRIX RELOADED. Many will remember Harry's 2003 review when he discussed the following...

[quote="Harry"][Monica Belluci's Persephone] also informs us that Merovingian employs very old programs that are very difficult to kill, she then pulls out a gun with Silver bullets and disposes of one, and tells the other to leave and tell her husband. OK. Now on the screen behind them, these two were watching BRIDES OF DRACULA, the best vampire film that has ever been… So we’re about to see Vamps or Werewolves or a shitload of cool monsters right?

At this point, I’m extremely frickin excited, because I know we’re dealing with Werewolves and Vampires. That Merovingian, who is a man of style and taste, that has learned every language on the planet and favors the world of Old Europe in terms of style, has a passion for French, cooking and the flesh of fine females. His dialogue about the illusion of choices is my favorite of all the “highâ€

Um. Judging by the number of days you've played, yes it WAS the first time this month.

Maybe you meant "Won't be the LAST time this month."

That's what I would have meant.

And I've already missed a couple of days, and will definitely miss more because of general December goddam decemberness.

Heh. Very few people played. I'm thinking that this is the end.

Sad really. I'll be gone for a good 2 1/2 weeks next month... so anyone who has really wanted to win the music quiz can have at it!

As the one and only Zoner to play every game this month, I've won every single quiz!!!! Not the way I'd like to win 'em though...

I was saying it might be worth it to do some poking around to find a new platform. I did a little bit of looking, but I have yet to find another site that allows you to both customize your quiz and keep it out of the site's public database. I'll give it another go. I'm getting emailed annoying "daily trivia questions" from this one site I signed up for, but I haven't unsubscribed because I want them to be a pestering reminder that I need to keep researching.

I'm still totally up for it, as long as we can get a few more regular players. January is pretty well shot for me... takin' the kiddies to SoCal for a couple of weeks. Got a date with The Mouse. I'll still jump in when I can, but I won't be in contention at all.

I'd love to see minstrel and LS competing again!

i'm trying a new tactic: one quiz per month. this month it'll be the music quiz (since alphonzo will be MIA and leaving the door open).

but i will probably not be around on weekends much so i'll probably miss days and lose anyway.

maybe i'll play the occasional other quiz if it sounds like a fun topic.
