Encore Question of October 27th, 2001.
Played at The Frog & Firkin in North York Ontario.
Tonight we have a better turn out of players who stayed for the whole game in our little group with Doug CRANKY, Dave COITIS, Margo (playing as ZIGGY) and Bill MADDOG. I was passed in the Triviaoke by METLCA who was playing with COSMO. We haven't played against each other for months.
My game so far had gone like this: TuneUp...5000/5000...1st/10...four way tie of ROCKET, CRANKY, COITIS, and MOEBAD. We needed Bill's help for death city of Jimi Hendrix. Bill's friend wrote a book about him. OnBeat...9750/14000...3rd/10...COSMO wins round...ZIGGY has lead with 10500. I had 5 right 1 wrong, and 3 not answered as there's still a lot of music that I'm not hearing about. JukeBox...15187/20000...1st/11...I win this round and take the lead. Triviaoke...20181/28000...2nd/9...METLCA wins round and passes me with two questions to go.
Political causes? Well my book isn't going to help me on this one.
Encore Question:...The video for "Freedom" by Rage Against The Machine tells the story of a/an ________ activist.
I don't know this but maybe I can think my way into something. Seeing the word 'Freedom' and I thought of George Michael before I've even finished reading. Heavy metal wouldn't support Gay Rights risking fan support would they? White guys wouldn't be welcomed by Afro-American groups for support would they? Dave thinks it's '1' but he'll pick '5'. I'm picking '2' but don't feel confident enough to tell the others. I sunk us last week.
Correct Answer:...2. American Indian
[NTN Extra Fact:...The song was about Leonard Pelletier who was convicted in the deaths of (two undercover FBI policeman)]..........sorry I didn't get to read the last bit.
I'm right and I stay in 2nd place with 30271. I earn 3000+ Players Plus points for meeting this week's standard of 15000. I finish 287th in North America. The bar is 62nd and if I'd piped up and swung one player over, we might have had a Network Top 20 score. METLCA wins. I congratulate those two on the way out. I know METLCA and COSMO like to sit at a booth and we like to sit at the bar but we could form a good team as we kept alternating right and wrong answers.
Here's how the rest of the bar did: Player preEncore Final Rank METLCA 20300 30450 229 ROCKET 20181 30271 287 ZIGGY 19794 x 9897 6824 COSMO 19290 x 9695 6905 COITIS 18009 x 9004 7111 GRRLZ 17002 18702 3999 MADDOG 16607 x 8303 7335 CRANKY 16581 x 8291 7339 HOMER 3708 x 2225 9286
