Christmas Time

The Darkness are RUBBISH. Ask Ian.

Now, take Christmas. What did we do Christmas Day? Well, we thought it would be a nice idea to run a competiton. And rather than have incredibly easy questions, we thought we'd make you work at it; however, I will helpfully suggest that the answers to the following are not a million miles away from here...

  1. Who was originally going to play the DNA Computer?
  2. What were the original episode titles of Krytie TV?
  3. What was unusual about the re-cap at the start of Nanarchy?
  4. How many pages are there in Random Abstract Memory?
  5. How does Norman Lovett claim to have got two daughters?
  6. How many people watched the first broadcast of The End?
  7. On what date was Craig Charles arrested on suspicion of rape?
  8. On what date was the second draft of the script to The Inquisitor completed?
  9. Name five actors who have appeared in both Red Dwarf and The Brittas Empire.
  10. Who was the first person to sing Tongue Tied, and who was the first to compose music for it?

And the prize? Well, how does a signed copy of Incompetence sound? We might even chuck in a few other little goodies as well. Send your entries to compo@ganymede-titan.info - the closing date is December 31st, and the winner will be announced shortly after (chosen completely at random from the correct entries; if nobody answers all 10 correctly, the ones with the most correct go into the draw). The compo is open to everyone except me and Ian. Have fun. Or at least try not to slit your throat.

I officially have no life now.

Ummm... signed by whom?

Posted by Frank Sinatra at December 24, 2003 09:56 AM

My mum.

John, Suzanne is going to kill you if you don't take that comment about The Darkness away. ;->

We know that you are a closet fan of them really....and that your favourite Sci-Fi show is really Buck Rodgers.

I have nothing against The Darkness. I just did it to annoy Ian. Although frankly I think you should all stop listening to that nonsense and listen to a constant loop of the Red Dwarf isolated music cues instead.

And I used to quite fancy Wilma Deering...

MERRY CHRISTMAS, CUNTS.

Posted by John Hoare at December 25, 2003 12:18 PM

Excellent. I got a mint condition copy of Better Than Life to replace my worn and dog-eared copy. Now all I need is a copy of Incompetence, hand signed by John's mum.

Posted by Austin Ross at December 25, 2003 04:21 PM

I got The Pythons Autobiography, and the Phoenix Nights scriptbook. Hooray!

Posted by John Hoare at December 25, 2003 04:45 PM

Oh, and Final Fantasy X, which is bloody brilliant.

Posted by John Hoare at December 25, 2003 04:46 PM

I want The Pythons Autobiography, that looks like a bloody good book.

Posted by Austin Ross at December 25, 2003 04:55 PM

I already had the book, but I received the CD of the Pythons Autobiography, so as to not break the chain as much as possible.

Oh, and I got TEH SMANG SEHMG-DWOLF SHOW series 4-6 as well.

I'll let slip that we've only had four entries so far (and that's before eliminating any if they've got any wrong) - so if anyone else wants to enter, you're in with a reasonable chance of winning...

Posted by John Hoare at December 27, 2003 03:14 PM

I'll announce the winner on Monday evening, incidentally.

Posted by John Hoare at January 2, 2004 04:56 PM

Except I haven't, because

a) I'm a lazy git, and
b) There is a PROBLEM with one of the QUESTIONS, which I am SORTING out. Why not try and guess which one?

Winner should be announced tomorrow.

Posted by John Hoare at January 6, 2004 10:33 PM

What sort of a problem? If it's factual, it could be the Random Abstract Memory question, depending on whether or not there were different versions, such as hardcover and paperback.

Posted by Austin Ross at January 7, 2004 05:29 PM

No, it's not that, although good thinking: we've allowed both possible answers for that one.

Actually, I might as well tell you: the date Craig was arrested for rape was either June or July the 8th, 1994 - different sources give different dates. G&T on the Edit News: Broadcast pages gives June; that's taken from a BTL at the time, and a transcript from the Daily Mail, also done at the time. Elsewhere on the net, though, July is given. If I can't find out on the net for sure, I'll have to go and look at some contemporary newspapers on Saturday.

Ian's Right!! Every time I hear the Darkness I just want to DIE!!!

Posted by MJN SEIFER at January 8, 2004 01:04 PM

The Darkness are the best band of the century thus far. Permission To Land is the best debut I've heard for a long time, and IBIATCL was easily the best single of 2003. So you can all fuck off.

Posted by Ian Symes at January 8, 2004 01:42 PM

Well Thank You For making me a hated member of this site John...

Posted by MJN SEIFER at January 8, 2004 05:35 PM

You're welcome.

I have tickets for The Darkness. I think they are rubbish, but for the purposes of this website I must pretend to like them. "I love The Darkness. I think they're much better than S Club Juniors." (I don't.) "I like it when they sing I Believe in a Thing Called Love." Huh.

Posted by John Hoare at January 8, 2004 05:38 PM

SCREW THAT LAST POST!
I just realized that the "Christmas Time" song is the only Darkness song I've heard...So per chance their other songs might be good...Anyone know wher to find them?

Posted by MJN SEIFER at January 8, 2004 05:43 PM

What?! "Thing Called love" is darkness?!

I SMEGGING LIKE THAT ONE!!!

Posted by MJN SEIFER at January 8, 2004 05:45 PM

Yes, that's them. Their other singles are Get Your Hands Off My Woman (which I doubt you'll have heard) and Growing On Me. Look out for the forthcoming single Love Is Only A Feeling, which is amongst my favourite songs of all time, for a multitude of reasons.

Posted by Ian Symes at January 8, 2004 06:15 PM

I quite like The Darkness, and this is brilliant - http://www.guidedmissile.co.uk/recordings.htm

Posted by clem at January 8, 2004 08:22 PM

Mohh, that bastard. Their version of IBIATCL is alright, for what it is, but I can't abide their LOTRWNI. Not only is it a bit of a holy cow as far as cover versions are concrned, it's just very annoying. That said, I do like the version of GYHOMW, and the little comment on the end made me laugh a lot.

Posted by Ian Symes at January 8, 2004 08:25 PM

I Haven't heard "Get your hands of My woman" as far as I know... is there any paticular reason you think I didn't?

Posted by MJN SEIFER at January 9, 2004 08:44 PM

*does behind-the-scenes machinations about the compo*

Posted by John Hoare at January 9, 2004 08:47 PM

> I Haven't heard "Get your hands of My woman" as far as I know... is there any paticular reason you think I didn't?

Well, it's quite rare. You evidently haven't heard the album, and the single only reached #43 in the charts!

Posted by Ian Symes at January 9, 2004 08:52 PM

It didn't even reach #17.

Posted by John Hoare at January 9, 2004 09:03 PM

Yes, but Danny John-Jules is yet to sell a million copies of his debut album.

Posted by Ian Symes at January 9, 2004 09:17 PM

Because he's rubbish.

Posted by John Hoare at January 9, 2004 09:34 PM

I see
