LLML: '80s Music (fall 2015)

Post by Vermonter »

As suggested, starting a new thread for this ML.

I'm in Group 50, along with MooreA2. And now I'm stuck listening to Sports, thanks to the sample questions.

Oh no. Is it too late to drop out? If I get Thompson Twins running through my head all next week, I may have to quit LL.

I am a bit confused as to what this is. Will this be an 80s Music trivia game, or just a thread to discuss 80s music, or what? I don't know what LLML or ML stand for.

LL is Learned League, this is a trivia league many boardie a are involved in. ML is a Mini League, a multi day trivia quiz on a subject.

FYI if we implemented sections for posts (one for jboard games, one for show discussion, one for Learned League, one for misc., etc.) this might be more apparent. ;)

Does sitting in an Ikea waiting for a spare part for a lampshade listening to 'Promises, Promises' by Naked Eyes count as cheating? It's not even the Jellybean mix!!!

I love this. It reminds me of another song edit on YouTube, but the song is from 1998, so I'll be posting that elsewhere.

For a bit more explanation, check out http://learnedleague.com/, and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LearnedLeague. It is an invitation only trivia competition. During "off seasons" there are one day specials and mini leagues.

Some guy named CraigR is in my group (63). This is one of like, 3 things on earth I stand a chance at beating him at. The others being a 1989 Calgary Flames Roster or Street Names of Kamloops BC MLs.

Trust me, you have very little chance of beating CraigR at 80s music. Tying at 9(6), maybe.

I am not yet a llama, so I am REALLY looking forward to discussing things a day late. 80s music is TOTALLY my wheelhouse.

(I hope everyone appreciates my great setup-for-failure here.)

Which are those the '89 Flames, Kamloops streets, or both?
