Going up against A-rundlers is going to be a rude awakening!

AxoLOLtl (Leee), Thursday, 9 July 2020 21:40 (three years ago) link

Are you in A now?

Lipstick O.G. (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 9 July 2020 21:41 (three years ago) link

Haha no way, but my opponent in the book club ML is. His lowest subject CA% is 72%.

AxoLOLtl (Leee), Thursday, 9 July 2020 21:51 (three years ago) link

I actually have come to find that situation somewhat relaxing, there’s nothing to lose.

Lipstick O.G. (James Redd and the Blecchs), Thursday, 9 July 2020 23:29 (three years ago) link

Oh, no doubt. Why bother overthinking your defense when they're probably going to 9(6) the match?

AxoLOLtl (Leee), Friday, 10 July 2020 00:13 (three years ago) link

I know everyone has different knowledge but the person I was against for day one of General Knowledge Book Club has a 76% get rate in Theater but didn’t get Six Degrees of Separation.

na (NA), Friday, 10 July 2020 00:32 (three years ago) link

Which seemed easy to me, who has a 54% in Theater and was honestly surprised it was that high.

na (NA), Friday, 10 July 2020 00:34 (three years ago) link

To be fair, movie trivia is my strongest category but I totally flubbed the Movie Pairs One Day.

na (NA), Friday, 10 July 2020 00:36 (three years ago) link

That is weird about Six Degrees of Separation.

Lipstick O.G. (James Redd and the Blecchs), Friday, 10 July 2020 02:48 (three years ago) link

Turns out I am competing with a Type A today as well.

Lipstick O.G. (James Redd and the Blecchs), Friday, 10 July 2020 02:48 (three years ago) link

i am enjoying the GKBook Club stuff so far.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Friday, 10 July 2020 04:00 (three years ago) link

I am enjoying as well

Lipstick O.G. (James Redd and the Blecchs), Friday, 10 July 2020 04:13 (three years ago) link

You'd think an English degree would help in this ML but not really! Moby Dick aside, anyway.

AxoLOLtl (Leee), Friday, 10 July 2020 15:38 (three years ago) link

After a total whiff on the first day of the MCU ML, I think I'm going to regret registering for that one.

AxoLOLtl (Leee), Sunday, 12 July 2020 22:04 (three years ago) link

Gave that one a wide berth, not in my wheelhouse.

Lipstick O.G. (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 12 July 2020 22:42 (three years ago) link

How's everybody doing in the Book Club? I am in third, I think.

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 19 July 2020 19:09 (three years ago) link

But I have a match coming up on Monday against jaymc's distant relative, so I am a little worried.

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 19 July 2020 19:10 (three years ago) link

Four one days coming due tomorrow, I have yet to peep out
Florida Man (Mon)
Salmon (Mon)
The Art World (Mon)
The French Revolution (Mon)
Maybe I will have a look-see now

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 19 July 2020 19:11 (three years ago) link

not-quite-jaymc has a knowledge profile similar to mine and is in A Rundle, so I will proceed with cation.

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 19 July 2020 19:12 (three years ago) link

Caution, even

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 19 July 2020 19:12 (three years ago) link

Also just registered for School of Rock.

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 19 July 2020 19:14 (three years ago) link

not doing well but really enjoying book club! 3-4-1

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Sunday, 19 July 2020 21:47 (three years ago) link

Synchronicity continues as I too am 3-4-1.

AxoLOLtl (Leee), Monday, 20 July 2020 04:27 (three years ago) link

Anyone need a referral? ‘Tis the off-season.

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 21 July 2020 23:39 (three years ago) link

Instead of Fred Willard I put Bob Odenkirk.

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 22 July 2020 11:12 (three years ago) link

I got my first 9(6) AND 12/12 yesterday!

yes please!

thomasintrouble, Wednesday, 22 July 2020 19:13 (three years ago) link

Can you send me ILX robomail with your contact info?

Left Eye Frizzell (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 22 July 2020 19:55 (three years ago) link

i was doing really well on the general knowledge book club (bouncing between 2nd and 1st place until i got my first loss on the last day and dropped into third) but i totally bombed the final. it didn't really seem to match up with the rest of the minileague since it was all book excerpts and no general knowledge.

also apparently i forgot to register for school of rock. ugh.

na (NA), Friday, 24 July 2020 14:18 (three years ago) link

I didn't look at the final yet. I finished 4th or something, can't remember. And I am in School of Rock no further comment. Oh yeah, I am helping smith a music mini-league which is due in October. I think my name is on the page over there so jaymc could have figured it out anyway.

Time Will Show Leo Weiser (James Redd and the Blecchs), Friday, 24 July 2020 14:33 (three years ago) link

I finished 1st in my group for Book Club but also didn't do very well in the championship. In a few cases I recognized the author/book but couldn't get to what the question was actually asking. Like, I knew Chuck Barris but not Gong Show, Phyllis Wheatley but not YWCA, and Fun Home but not "Ring of Keys."

jaymc, Friday, 24 July 2020 15:09 (three years ago) link

Oh yeah, I am helping smith a music mini-league which is due in October. I think my name is on the page over there so jaymc could have figured it out anyway.

Is it '60s Music? It doesn't look like there's a dedicated page for that ML yet.

jaymc, Friday, 24 July 2020 15:13 (three years ago) link

Yes, that’s it. If you click through to contributors I am there along with Tony Hightower and others. Do you know him?

Time Will Show Leo Weiser (James Redd and the Blecchs), Friday, 24 July 2020 15:52 (three years ago) link

extreme lol at the mountain goats controversy from school of rock day 1

the portentous pepper (govern yourself accordingly), Sunday, 26 July 2020 09:16 (three years ago) link

Is it in the Message Board over there? Looked for a second and didn't find.

Time Will Show Leo Weiser (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 26 July 2020 13:57 (three years ago) link

Oh, wait, never mind.

Time Will Show Leo Weiser (James Redd and the Blecchs), Sunday, 26 July 2020 13:58 (three years ago) link

HAHA meanwhile, John Darnielle has no idea about the unexpected fruit of his songwriting labor. Somewhere in a private corner of the internet, big fuckin nerds are arguing about a trivia question that *references* a song he wrote 25 years ago.

unashamed and trash (Unctious), Sunday, 26 July 2020 14:51 (three years ago) link

Yes, that’s it. If you click through to contributors I am there along with Tony Hightower and others. Do you know him?

Oh, I see it now. Tony's flag looks familiar, so perhaps I've seen him on the LL message board, but I don't otherwise know him.

jaymc, Monday, 27 July 2020 20:37 (three years ago) link

my school of rock opponent today went 0-for-6 on friday; now gearing up to be 96ed

mookieproof, Monday, 27 July 2020 20:57 (three years ago) link

i have an obvious comment about today's school of rock questions

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 28 July 2020 02:26 (three years ago) link

We will see you tomorrow about that

Time Will Show Leo Weiser (James Redd and the Blecchs), Tuesday, 28 July 2020 02:31 (three years ago) link

TFW you confidently submit your answers and then see that half of them are wrong.

Garry Shambling (Leee), Wednesday, 29 July 2020 18:11 (three years ago) link

So many times I’ve replaced my first, correct guess with my second, wrong guess

all cats are beautiful (silby), Wednesday, 29 July 2020 18:11 (three years ago) link

hee hee hee on the AP question, ILX ftw

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Wednesday, 29 July 2020 18:13 (three years ago) link

You know what that is called in LL jargon, don't you, siby?

Time Will Show Leo Weiser (James Redd and the Blecchs), Wednesday, 29 July 2020 18:29 (three years ago) link

I've forgotten, all the jargon is too contrived :)

all cats are beautiful (silby), Wednesday, 29 July 2020 18:31 (three years ago) link

my school of rock opponent today went 0-for-6 on friday

he is now 0-for-18 and i'm wondering if it's some sort of art project

mookieproof, Wednesday, 29 July 2020 19:00 (three years ago) link

Hey forks/ulysses, have you ever smithed a 1DS? I have an idea for one if other potential collabs fall through, and we share a certain interest in a particular subject.

Garry Shambling (Leee), Monday, 3 August 2020 21:17 (three years ago) link

i'd love to!

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Monday, 3 August 2020 21:17 (three years ago) link

Sweet! I just saw that it's been done before, but I've PMed the smith for that to see if they're interested in a sequel.
