First topic message reminder :

Here we have round 9 of the Culture Cup and the finishing line is now rapidly approaching still some way off.  This round brings us the poll for 'Best piece of literature with a place or building in the title'.  There will no doubt be some whinging over the definition of what a 'place' or a 'building' is but I am prepared for the whingers and whatever heat they bring.  Azzy probably got the weirdest choice but if you had any idea of the diva strop she threw via PM then you'll understand.  Big blouse that she is.  So what happened in round 8.....

Once again, our two front runners compelling & rich and Hero picked up good points hauls and remain firmly locked in a battle at the top.  With a few rounds to go and a bonus double point round, they are not the only posters in with a chance of ultimate victory.  Breathing down their necks like the drooling pervert he is, michaels picked up a healthy 10 points and cements his place in third.  Not much change below that with Galted, Adam, Azzy, TopHat and onlytreblwinners all glancing up the skirts of those posters just above them.  Adam was the big winner with Planet Earth which was a deserving choice in my opinion.  After I inadvertently stitched him up in the last round, I do feel a slight sense of happiness for him, especially as I know how insecure he is and how much this will boost his fragile self-esteem.  superfly gained a point on his mistress, Rowley, but it is not enough to close the gap that Jeff currently holds.  jbeadlesbigrighthand is still propping up the table, although he will no doubt delight in having so many men on top of him.  Seeing as I don’t really have the opportunity to make a cheap Culture Cup league table related gay gag at Union’s expense, I will just say that Kenny Goss told me that Union is definitely a friend of Dorothy’s.  We will leave it at that.

Hero (Man on Wire): (8) 72
compelling & rich (When we were Kings): (9) 70
seanmichaels (Senna): (10) 65
Azzy (An Inconvenient Truth): (8) 64
Galted (The World at War): (8) 58
Adam (Planet Earth): (12) 58
TopHat (Blue Planet): (9) 54
onlytreblewinners (An Idiot Abroad): (8) 51
Rowley (Bobby Fischer Vs The World): (5) 49
bhb (Roger and Me): (7) 48
The Womble (Don't Look Back): (6) 45
The Boss (Supersize Me): (8) 45
superflyweight (Hoop Dreams): (6) 44
Dolphin (Louis Theroux's Weird Weekend): (7) 41
Union (Klitschko): (5) 39
JuliusHMiseryguts (Around the World in 80 Days): (6) 39
ChequeredJersey (The Thin Blue Line): (5) 35
jbeadlesbigrighthand (Grizzly Man): (5) 32

Round 10 takes us back to music and the question is: What is the best song with an emotion or an emotional response in the title?  For example, love would be an obvious one but a basic google search tells me that there are masses of other good songs with emotions in the title.  I will be the sole judge as to whether it qualifies and, as ever, PLEASE PM A COUPLE OF CHOICES

PLEASE NOTE: LOVE WILL TEAR US APART (JOY DIVISION) AND DON'T LOOK BACK IN ANGER (OASIS) ARE BANNED FROM THE NEXT ROUND


Here is the poll for round 9.  YOU CAN ONLY VOTE FOR ONE SO TAKE YOUR TIME!  Vote cancelling is not allowed.

Remember, IT IS OPEN FOR THE WHOLE FORUM TO VOTE!

I didn't vote for it, but Slaughterhouse 5 is a fantastic read. Vonnegut is one of the few nominations in this entire competition to actually be considered a 'cultured' pick.

I've never been a huge Shakespeare fan, even when I was 10 I could see the plot twists coming a mile off. He's the U2 of the literary world, big rep, not warranted, only done a couple of genuinely good things.

To be fair to William, his stuff had been around about 500 years by the time you were 10 and generally re-hashed a considerable number of times in all sorts of literature. It may be possible that you recognised the twists coming because they had been reused in Dangermouse.
