The song game is going well. It started back here and moved on to this post. It's been running for a number of rounds, but the vast majority of those rounds have been flusterbunny and I, so I figured, hey... let's remind people we've got a game going, right?

flusterbunny posted the following song last:

"Beauty and the Beast" by Celine Dion and Motherfuckin' Peabo Motherfuckin' Bryson (his words)

My response is:

"Beauty is Within Us" by Yoko Kanno & Scott Matthew

Have at it, folks.

Okay, kids, let's play the Song Game. We haven't done this in a while, after all, and I've never run one. They're easy, they're fun, and they go on until people stop wanting to play. What's not to love?

Click here for rules and examples, if you need 'em.Collapse )

Your starting song for today is...

"We Used to Be Friends" by the Dandy Warhols

So I've been sick, and there have been issues with that. I'm gonna be fine, but it's sort of put a crimp on the whole "running the game" thing. I'm trying to catch up today.

I'm not yet going to flip everything to FREE and watch you all gun them down, so don't be too eager. I am, however, prepared to offer a bounty -- if you guess something marked FREE, I'll tick a point off of your debt. Yes, that means guessing the old, crusty quotes actually removes quote debt, so you have incentive to give it a try if you're currently drowning in a sea of points.

Rules are posted previously, and if you don't know 'em... well, read my last post or something. And guess quotes -- they need guessin'.

Ready... Aim.... FIRE!Collapse )

Current debts are:

colubra owes 3
crash_in2_me_87 owes 18
dkphoenix owes 60
erispope owes 1
fax_celestis owes 9
filmbuff owes 57
fmh owes 75
indigoskynet owes 12
itsaslashything owes 12
joiedecombat owes 112
jtersesk owes 2
lair_of_fenrir owes 64
lightning_rose owes 23
merlynn owes 12
persephoneflame owes 2
talmanes owes 30

Do it now!

NOTE FOR MONDAY, APRIL 14: There's still no need to repost an update, because we've only got a few responses to this one. I'll let it stay up as is.

It keeps on truckin'.

You all know the rules. If not, just read them here.

I am considering taking all of the quotes that haven't been identified by Monday and making them all FREE until Friday. At that point, any quotes left revert back to their original posters (in other words, you're free to ask it again in a future game, if you like), and all quote debts are forgiven. Any thoughts? I want to hear both sides -- people who want a definitive end to the game, and people who want to see it keep going forever.

In the meantime...

Here they are.Collapse )

Currently Sporting IOUs:

colubra owes 3
crash_in2_me_87 owes 22
dkphoenix owes 60
erispope owes -2
fax_celestis owes 9
filmbuff owes 57
fmh owes 77
indigoskynet owes 12
itsaslashything owes 12
joiedecombat owes 114
jtersesk owes 2
lair_of_fenrir owes 61
lightning_rose owes 23
merlynn owes 12
persephoneflame owes 2
talmanes owes 46

Bang.

MODERATOR NOTE FOR MONDAY, 4/7: The update of the quotes will be seriously delayed for a number of very stupid reasons. I will not be able to handle it until I get home this evening.

Jess Hart posting in The Movie Quotes Tag [and Song Game] community
It's Monday, and it's time to post quotes again. It's not coming out as early as I'd have liked, but what can I say? It's Monday, and I work.

As usual, answering quotes requires you to post up a number of quotes equal to the listed point value of the quote you're answering. Try to get the free ones, if you can -- that gets quotes off the list! If you haven't looked over the old quotes in a while, take a second to do so; you may surprise yourself with what you suddenly recognize.

I'm going to repost my quick requests list, because this stuff will seriously, seriously make my life easier.

-- If you have quotes to post, post your new quotes in a new comment, not as part of a thread. This way, people will see them when they're browsing the comments.
-- If you're on the list of reposted quotes, try to stick with the numbering system I've established for your new quotes, because it makes adding them to the Master List easier. Bear in mind that those numbers may change from roundup to roundup as I cut out all of the quotes that have been guessed correctly and collapse the list out of order..
-- I it's late Sunday or Thursday night, consider posting your quotes the next day, after I've posted the new roundup.
-- Please don't put quote marks (") around your quotes. It's assumed that what you're quoting is an actual quote, and I'm just going to have to remove them.

Other than that, standard rules apply. As usual, please point out any mistakes so I can correct them.

Quotes within!Collapse )

As usual, if you see quotes up here that have already been answered, speak up.

The following people owe quotes. If you owe a handful (less than 9), feel free to hang on to them for a while and accrue points so you can make a bigger post. If you owe a ton of quotes, feel free to split them up into blocks and post them as you can -- it's actually easier on me if you do that instead of posting a huge slough of them. Also, don't worry if your total is getting really high -- I'd rather you played than didn't, so feel free to keep guessing.

colubra owes 3
crash_in2_me_87 owes 22
dkphoenix owes 60
erispope owes 7
fax_celestis owes 3
filmbuff owes 57
flusterbunny owes 15
fmh owes 77
indigoskynet owes 12
itsaslashything owes 12
joiedecombat owes 114
jtersesk owes 2
lair_of_fenrir owes 59

Jess Hart posting in The Movie Quotes Tag [and Song Game] community
Sorry about how long it took to post this -- I had a considerable amount of quotes to compile.

It just doesn't get much better than going well over 200 posts. This game seems to be increasing in popularity, and the quote count is an out-of-control freight train. Luckily, I am up to the task of moderating.

As usual, answering quotes requires you to post up a number of quotes equal to the listed point value of the quote you're answering. Try to get the free ones, if you can. There are new quotes in this initial post (including 54 by me), so don't just dismiss it because you didn't know any right off the bat last round; take this opportunity to review the list and refresh your memory.

A few quick requests, to make my job easier (because I know you guys like making things easy on me):

-- If you have quotes to post, post them in a new comment, not as part of a thread. This way, people will see them when they're browsing the comments.
-- If you're on the list of reposted quotes, try to stick with the numbering system I've established for your new quotes, because it makes adding them to the Master List easier. Bear in mind that those numbers may change from roundup to roundup as I cut out all of the quotes that have been guessed correctly and collapse the list out of order..
-- I it's late Sunday or Thursday night, consider posting your quotes the next day, after I've posted the new roundup.
-- Please don't put quote marks (") around your quotes. It's assumed that what you're quoting is an actual quote, and I'm just going to have to remove them.

Other than that, standard rules apply. As usual, please point out any mistakes so I can correct them.

As always, a number of people still owe quotes. There's no rush to post them, at this point (we have plenty), but the totals will remain as reminders. If you only owe a few, feel free to run up a tab until you have enough to post. If you owe a whole bunch, feel free to post quotes in bundles, as you think of them. If you're running up a huge tab and you're worried about owing so many quotes, don't be concerned; I'm very patient, and it's more important to me that people have fun playing the game then that quotes get posted in a timely fashion.

crash_in2_me_87 owes 17
dkphoenix owes 21
erispope owes 7
fax_celestis owes 2
filmbuff owes 57
fmh owes 45
indigoskynet owes 12
itsaslashything owes 3
joiedecombat owes 84
jtersesk owes 2
lair_of_fenrir owes 53
lightning_rose owes 13
merlynn owes 12
persephoneflame owes 2
talmanes owes 36

Movie Quote Roundup 4 -- Movie Quote Resurrection
 mqt_etc - (talmanes)

Jess Hart posting in The Movie Quotes Tag [and Song Game] community
We hit over 150 posts on the last roundup, and that was for a single weekend. Nicely done, guys & dolls -- I'm impressed!

We still have a ton of quotes left unanswered, and a ton of quotes left unasked (I'm not looking directly at you, filmbuff, but I think you know I'm talkin' about you ;)). My work is never done.

A quick request -- when you're posting up the questions you owe, START A NEW THREAD instead of just posting them as a reply to the kindly "Correct!" answer you get. Here's the deal on that: this game is starting to hit 50 quotes within hours of every posting, and as soon as that happens, the threads collapse. That means people browsing the game have to dig for your quotes, and after 100 posts, that's just a pain to do. Post your quotes in a new thread and make the game easier to play. If you forget, don't worry -- I will remind you. Ten times. I will be relentless.

The rules haven't changed -- all new quotes are worth 3 points (there are only a few on the main post, but any quotes asked this round will count for 3), quotes from the last roundup are worth 2, quotes from the roundup before that are worth 1, and anything older is FREE. Answer those free ones if you know 'em, because that gets them off the board (and it's impressive if you know them).

Here they are! Let me know if you see any mistakes.

Click Here to Play!Collapse )

As always, there's a considerable amount of IOUs out there, waiting to be posted. The following people owe quotes in the following amount. This list will be updated every time I check posts and quotes, so if you see your name up here, odds are you owe exactly this many quotes -- no more, no less. Feel free to break up your quotes if you owe a bunch, and feel free to run up a tab for a while if you don't want to nickel-and-dime your quotes out.

crash_in2_me_87 owes 5
dkphoenix owes 8
erispope owes 7
fax_celestis owes 2
filmbuff owes 57
fmh owes 37
itsaslashything owes 3
joiedecombat owes 15
lair_of_fenrir owes 46
lightning_rose owes 13
persephoneflame owes 2
talmanes owes 54

Also, we've long since spilled over into 2 pages, so don't forget to check Page 2 for even more quotes. I'll repost on Friday, as usual.

Let's get it on!

Jess Hart posting in The Movie Quotes Tag [and Song Game] community
We still have plenty of quotes, so here's the update, as well as the current list of people who owe quotes (which I will update as questions are answered).

There are way more FREE quotes, so please, take a stab at those and get 'em out of the game, because it requires no further effort once you've done so. There are no 3 Point questions thus far in this iteration, as all of the quotes are at least 24 hours old. Don't worry, though -- that'll change soon enough.

Click here to see the quotes, because there are a lot of them.Collapse )

On the IOU tip, the following people owe us quotes for previous answers. They can post them here. If you owe less than 3, it's perfectly acceptable to run up a tab until you've got more. If you have over 10, it's seriously time to post up some quotes.

crash_in2_me_87 owes 9
erispope owes 7
fax_celestis owes 2
filmbuff owes 66
flusterbunny owes 6
fmh owes 26
joiedecombat owes 6
lair_of_fenrir owes 6
talmanes owes 3

Jess Hart posting in The Movie Quotes Tag [and Song Game] community
This is definitely the game that wouldn't die. I think a lot of it has to do with my Frankensteining it along, meticulously monitoring unanswered quotes and who owes what and how many points things are worth. I deserve an A for effort and an F- for letting things go. Hopefully indigoskynet isn't regretting her decision to bring me on as a mod. ;)

We're at over 100 quotes, which is pretty insane. As usual, they're marked with point values. 3 points means answering that quote requires that you post up 3 quotes of your own (likely because the quote is still "fresh"). 2 points is 2 quotes, 1 point is 1 quote. If it's marked FREE, you don't owe any quotes at all for answering it -- you get to take it down gratis, because it's been hanging on for so long. As usual, I will check answers for anything posted to the main board, and strike quotes as they're guessed. Look closely, because with this many quotes I'm figuring it's impossible that you (that's you specifically, Reader) can't guess at least one of them.

Cut because this is so darn long. Click here and get to answering!Collapse )

Jess Hart posting in The Movie Quotes Tag [and Song Game] community
This isn't a new game so much as it's a roundup of the open quotes for each user. Why post a roundup? So people see it, of course! I don't expect you all to be checking a post from four days ago.

Here's how it works: any questions asked yesterday are still 3 point quotes (requiring you to post 3 quotes if you answer them correctly). Anything older than that but still newly-introduced in the last round are 2 points. Anything that was carried over from the previous round is now worth 1 point. In the future, questions that have been sitting around for ages are worth 0 points -- you just get the thrill of knowing you answered one of the tough ones, and we don't end up with a monstrous bloat of questions left unanswered.

To make it easier on you guys, I've clearly marked all of the quotes with their point values.

Here they are, people. Don't be shy about answering them. If you still owe questions for this round, feel free to post them to this thread. They are currently separated by player, and the original poster can feel free to chime in as to whether or not an answer is correct (though I will check them myself, and not answer anything I've checked).

A01. Gentleman 1: General, you are a Buddhist. Perhaps there is some 'middle way' to solve this problem?
