First topic message reminder :

Two rounds of the Culture Cup in one week.  I don't usually do anything twice a week so count yourself lucky.  Round 7 brings the poll for 'Best film released in the decade of your birth'.  Before we move on to that, lets round up the results from round 6 and 'Best song with 3 or more words in the title'.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Galted walked away from this round with full points having gone for the shamelessly populist Joy Division pick.  Interestingly, the name Joy Division comes from a sinister background.  Nazi officers used the term to describe young Jewish girls imprisoned at Auschwitz who were forced into the camp brothel and told to 'smile' and 'look happy' by the German officers who subsequently christened them the 'Joy Division'.  I think if you extrapolate it out in a fair and transparent fashion, Galted is probably a Nazi.  Anyway, we digress.  Our two fronts runners, compelling & rich and Hero both picked up 10 points, keeping them just clear at the top of the table.  Decent points hauls for seanmichaels, Adam, Azzy and TopHat keep them in the running.  How TopHat got any points with Bryan Adams, I will never know.

Jeff and superfly keep up their battle for supremacy over each other, with both picking up 7 points and remaining neck and neck in the league.  It says a lot about that pair that they are rooted in mid-table whilst battling each other.  Some people are just destined for mediocrity.  The biggest loser this week was jbeadlesbigrighthand who finished with no votes after the second batch of vote rigging from some lone moron.  If beadle had just kept his one vote, he would have had 3 points and be level with Union.  As it is, he is rock bottom.

Hero (Sitting on the Dock of the Bay): (10) 56
compelling & rich (Don't Look Back in Anger): (10) 52
seanmichaels (The Tracks of my Tears): (7) 45
Adam (A Whiter Shade of Pale): (7) 44
Galted (Love will Tear us Apart): (12) 42
Azzy (Sweet Child of Mine): (7) 40
TopHat (Everything I do): (7) 40
The Womble (There is a light that never goes out): (6) 37
onlytreblewinners (Everytime we Touch): (4) 36
Rowley (I Am the Resurrection): (7) 36
superflyweight (Sympathy for the Devil): (7) 36
bhb (Like a Rolling Stone): (10) 35
Dolphin (You and Me song): (5) 31
The Boss (Ain't no Mountain High Enough): (4) 30
Julius (Bridge over Troubled Water): (8) 30
ChequeredJersey (Hit the Road, Jack): (3) 27
Union (Field of Dreams): (7) 26
jbeadlesbigrighthand: (0) 23

The next round is back to TV and this time I am looking for 'The best ever documentary'. Wide open choice and assuming everyone has seen a documentary, it should be a even field.  If you haven't ever seen a documentary, I suggest you just google a few and then lie. As ever, please PM a couple of choices.

After the second installment of 'votegate' I have had to make some changes this round.  You will only be able to vote for one film and won't be allowed to cancel it either so choose carefully and get it right first time.  It will reduce the volume of votes but will stop them disappearing randomly.  You can all thank the feckless little cretin who messed around for the last 2 rounds for the changes.  Hopefully his mum will catch him with his sticky little fingers on the family PC and tell him off.

To avoid any confusion (Union) you can vote for any film, it doesn't have to be from your decade, that was only for the participants.

Remember the poll is open for the whole forum to vote!

I know this (I think) - its John Wayne isnt it? (maybe Frank Sinatra)

I read an article in Metro about it.

Is it Frank Sinatra? He played Joe Leland in The Detective which was based on the books by Roderick Thorp. If my memory from Media Studies classes is correct, the sequel to The Detective was what Die Hard was based on, however they changed the characters name to John McClane.

He asked if he could join in weeks ago but I told him he was too late.

I think I upset him and this is his revenge.

Vote rigging and account hacking? I think that's beyond our loveable rogue somehow.

You could get your own back by getting Galted to derail one of his threads with an offensive sexist comment?

I'm looking up vaginal flatulence anecdotes in anticipation.  Probably not needed though as your implication that not all sexism is offensive would really annoy him.

On the subject, a girl at work (usually a quiet type) told me this the other day:

2 'bacon flaps' are chatting to each other. Left 'Bacon Flap' says 'We used to be so tight until you let this dick come between us.'

I was a little bit shocked and aroused at the same time....

You're in there sean Wink

I have a lot of vag flatulence anecdotes. I did 20mins stand up at uni, and pretty much joked about it the entire time. My girlfriend at the time wasn't laughing but everyone else was Laugh

Die Hard FTW The Culture Cup round 7 - Page 4 3559488474

I admit that it wouldn't actually have been my choice, but as Die Hard won the best film of the 80s round in the film cup, and my decade was the 80s, I didn't want to nominate the He-Man film and get zero votes.
