I've given Uncle's parameters some thought, and I think I've come up with a good twist on it. I can't just play a straight game and I love twists. So here it is...

I'm going to present a series of clues or riddles. The correct answer to each (a word or a phrase) will provide a clue to finding my movie. One guess per player per round.

Let's play!

1. A Joni Mitchell CD

Sorry, Uncle, that's wrong. I love that album, though... it's got some great songs.
Help me I think I'm falling
in love a-gain...


I much prefer the earlier folky Joni albums to the later jazzier ones...

I should ask you to hold off on more guesses and give some other players a chance... there are only a few album names to go through, after all.

Also, I just reviewed my clues and "played" the game through myself, and it's a bit easy. So I'm going to throw in ONE clue somewhere down the line that is going to be a red herring. If you indulge me this one change, I promise I shall not make any rule changes for the duration of the game.

Was that meant to be a hint?

1. A Joni Mitchell CD

Ah, I guess I should just refrain from posting a response until some others have played!

Do you like Joni Mitchell, Uncle? You're quick with the album titles...

Too late! We must have posted a few seconds apart.

No sweat.

Yes, I've always consider her a wonderful singer/songwriter and a damned fine painter too. I was fortunate to have met her and even cooked for her and her parents!

Wait... where's woozy? He just posted in his own game, but he didn't come over here... I guess he needs his first cup of coffee first!

You're right, he is probably having his coffee, that, and maybe he was irritated by my sticky wicket comment...

Ah, well from experience, I've found twists that I think will be fun and straightforward once one gets the hang of them, were percieved to be nasty and complicated. So this may not be as simple as you think. For example, I once did "The Muppets go Mideveal" (featuring Troy McClure) and answered questions in the Simpsons Universe ("is the movie animated" --- "In the context of its existance, no") It wasn't percieved as straightforward as I thought it was.

The Hissing of Summer Lawns?

Don't worry too much. Enthusiasm might vary at differing times. Perhaps we can ask yes no questions to determine the album. After all there are a lot of albums and it's not much fun to go "Herija? Don Juans Reckless Daughter? Clouds? Mood Indigo?..." At least not at first. (although later when we get a sense of where the game is going and the "tip of the tongue" feeling is tingly, things may be different...) Hmmm, someone should guess "Both Sides now" and maybe the movie is told through two different percpectives, perhaps ...This Kevin Bacon and Elizabeth Perkins piece.

No, I wasn't irritated. I was just posting a multi post response. Those take time.

Oh, speak of the devil! Don't be shy about admitting being irritated by that sticky wicket woozy.

Sometimes I get an itchy rash from the glue on band-aids. Just some brands. I have a soothing lotion scented with patchouli that does wonders, but I'm still very careful about cutting myself. Usually, applying steady pressure to a cut for a couple of minutes stops the bleeding anyway.

One of my housemates insists on keeping all the cooking knives in our kitchen deadly sharp, so I have to be alert even for peeling an apple.

What's the point? Uncle Eo is correct, and we shall move on.

1. BLUE
Eoliano - 1 point


2. A musical group.

Blue, here is a shell for you
Inside you'll hear a sigh
A foggy lullaby
There is your song from me...

I do like Blue (and Herija)

Okay, musical group... I'll resist "Blue Oyster Cult" and go straight to "The Beatles" and figure it's a Justice League superhero movie with the Blue Beetle or maybe a "Love Bug Movie" (or is the a musical group call The balls.

Okay, I'm making a real gues now... Blue, Fab Four, is your movie "The fantastic four"?

post #15  on November 12, 2005 - 11:35 AM PST  
Sorry, wooze! My movie is not The Fantastic Four. Good try, but maybe you should pay attention to solving some clues first.

1. BLUE
Eoliano +1 point
woozy -1 point (for a wrong title guess)

2. A musical group.
2. An outfit.

She ate at my restaurant several times and I usually took the order myself though she was gracious enough to take the time to thank me personally and so we chatted at the bar. Needless to say, I was practically speechless (and entirely smitten!). Although she's wasn't the only celebrity that I have cooked for, she was one the loveliest and friendliest.

> What's the point? Uncle Eo is correct, and we shall move on.

1. BLUE
Eoliano - 1 point

That was going to be my first guess but I thought it too easy and so demurred.

2. A musical group.

The Grateful Dead
Eoliano

2. An outfit.

Like clothing?

Sooo, we have two clues in the open? Musical Group and outifit?

Abba?

and

Wedding Dress?

Muriel's Wedding? (um, what's the deal with points ... asks the guy soon to have negative two points....)

post #19  on November 12, 2005 - 11:45 AM PST  
woozy made a sporting stab at guessing the title of the film. He lost a point with the wrong title, but earned everyone another clue for #2. So both (2.) clues refer to the same word/phrase.
pooja
post #20  on November 12, 2005 - 11:48 AM PST  
1. BLUE
Eoliano +1 point
woozy -2 points

2. A musical group.
2. An outfit.
2. Originally French (I think)

> Muriel's Wedding?

Sorry!
;-)

> ... asks the guy soon to have negative two points....)

You got THAT right at least!
