Ok - one more: Is place 2 Santa Luzia?

That's it for me - have to go practice now. :)


No.

Hint: The correct island is exactly 5,274 miles away from Santa Luzia.

Well, I was going to try to get this one, but my Google Earth keeps freezing up. I think I've killed it!

Can't do anymore, Pete.

I've made an error in scoring; since there 9 points to be had (remember one was worth 3)

I prematurely declared Monica the winner! :oops:

So out of 9 available points Monica has 4; she needs just one more to win!

Hint#1 Nathan (Place #6 Shreveport, Monica)

Hint #2 You'll need a lot of Tallent, go flipping through a Hall, meet a Ladd and consult with a Mason to get this one. But be warned; DON'T Beggs for an answer or you'll be Inching with Payne! (You will need to use Google with this one; the hint practically gives it to you!.)

Hint#3 One of these is of a LARGE city with a Large populous; that fact narrows it down more than you think.

Hint#4 One is of an Arctic Sea. (Place #4 Lincoln Sea, Monica)

Hint#5 Tiny they are but most holy in name. This saintly island is but one of five, she is muy motherly! This tiny archipelago sits exactly 7703.29 miles from Sydney, AU. Name the pictured island for 3 points!. (Isla Maria Madre, Julius gets 3 pts.)

Hint#6 This island fears to tread where Polar bears play. And can be helpful with a sleigh. (Place #5 Reindeer Island, Monica)

Hint #7 You'll vocalize like a horse when you guess this city, which partially shares the name of a certain pirate ambulator. (Place #1 Winnipeg, Manitoba. Monica gets the point)



The scores are:
Monica---4
Juufa-----3


Points needed to win outright---5

Ok, I rebooted my computer (twice!) and reset my internet connection (modem box and router box) and my Google Earth is working, for right now, anyway.

So....place no. 2 is Isla Maria Magdalena. Or it could be Isla Maria Madre.

You've put me in a spot; the right answer is Isla Maria Madre. But you gave two answers, the first one more affirmative than the last, so I will do as Jeopardy does (ooh, sorry) and take your first response. Although the two islands are extremely similar.

Juufa gave one answer (Isla Maria Madre) so I count that one. Or in this case, three.

The other answers, Juuf, are incorrect.

Hint #2 is referring to an author, a director, an actor and a fictional character. How does this possibly relate to a place?!?! :lol:

Scores:

Monica- -4
Julius- - -3

This is hard! I cannot figure out those last two. I'll try one more time late tonight, but that's after a little bit of wine, so don't expect much.

J- you could pull ahead right now!

I was thinking; is the oblique angle on the cityscape pic confounding an ordinary search?

J- (In Alex Trebekian style) Ooh, sorry.


Detroit is incorrect.

Is that the Jersey Shore? Greg Tallent grew up along there. An exact name? I cannot tell you. But I say "The Jersey Shore"

Revised hint for "Place #1": You'll need a lot of Tallent, go flipping through a Hall, meet a Ladd and consult with a Mason to get this one.

Google will be your guide. :idea:

I understand that Google will be my guide but there are millions (no hyperbole here) of search results for the names of:

Tallent
Hall
Ladd
Mason
Inching
Payne


I think you should just give the two participants, Ms. I-root-for-the-Cubs and myself, the answers.

Place #1 is Botany Bay, Australia. :D

You want to know something funny? My cousin married an Australian and has lived there for the last 10 years. She and her husband are in town and coming over for dinner tomorrow. So I've had Australia on my mind lately - now this!


btw, J - the Cubs are in the play-offs!! (in case you didn't know :lol: )

Good game you two! I knew you had it in you, M. 8) So, what do you have in store for us, Monica? :D

PS J, I don't give the answers away until no one has come up with a right answer for 10 days. But I would give increasingly descriptive hints. :wink: Personally I enjoy a nice long game.

Yay!!! :D

Sure gave my Google Earth a workout on this game, Pete! And btw - I figured you had changed the angle on the city pic, but I was looking in the Far East.


As to our next game - Is it ok if I switch back to 'name that tune', instead of 'where in the world'? Or maybe I can do a little of both?

Round ? of the Piano Society Game.

This one has a little of both ‘Where in the World’ and ‘Name that Tune’. There are 8 photos and 6 short piano clips (some will be easy, some will not). The photos relate to the music and if you can match a photo to the music, you will get an extra point. Also, a photo could possibly relate to more than one of the music files.

The music is played by me but I didn’t practice the pieces – just read through them, so they are not that great. One of the pieces is a piano transcription of an aria. Another one is just the left hand part of a certain piece, but I think it is possible to figure out.

Before we start, here is a little gift from me to all you men. (really cracks me up!) (You can thank me for it later.)

Every woman knows that there are days in the month when all a man has to do is open his mouth and he takes his life in his hands! This guide should be as common as a driver’s license in the wallet of every husband, boyfriend, co-worker or significant other!


Image

Ok, let the game begin!

Ok, let me start :-)

Pic 4 is a house, where Mozart was born, in Salzburg.
Pic 5 is of course Chopin's birthplace, in Zelazowa Wola! Haven't been there for a long time...

Hi Kschyschtoff - welcome back to the game thread! You are right on these, so 2 points for you.

Regarding Chopin's home - I hope to go there someday...

I know one picture and recording have to deal with Albeniz but I am not exactly sure. My guess would have to be picture #1 judging by the roof color of some of the buildings.

No Albeniz, but you're in the right area.

As to the other google earth pics; they are very, very logical! You know me, so you know these places.

Pic 7 is of Navy Pier and Monroe Harbor, Chicago. The Chicago River and many other landmarks are pictured.

BTW...I have the flu AGAIN! (I had it just a few months ago.) I started on the anti-viral treatment within one hour of fever onset (I keep a prescription of Tamiflu on hand.)

I was too ill to type yesterday but feel much better already, due to my quick dosing reflexes. :lol: (laughing on the inside)

I'm exhausted from sitting down at my desk, so I'll resume participation in your game tomorrow, M.A.. And I thought my games were long! :roll: :lol:

haha - ok, I guess I got carried away. :wink: I've removed half of the piano clips and left just the ones that actually match a picture. (except Chicago - I just liked that one. And Pete gets the point!).

So that means that if you can name the tune, you can also match it to a photo (or two! or three!) for extra points. And a photo can match more than one tune. So now you know that there must be a Mozart piano clip and a Chopin.

Here is your first hint regarding pics: Nathan

Hint regarding music: All my buddies are on the current page of the AR. (except one)


Hope you feel better soon, Pete.

Track 7 is Mozart K. 570, 1st movement. I'll play (badly) the last movement to make myself feel better. If you've never played/heard it, look it up! It's pianistic helium! :lol:


I know I've heard #9 before...something in f minor.

Pic 3 looks an awful lot like I-20 near Shreveport. That's my final answer, Meridith.

Track 10 is a waltz op. post. by Chopin in E-flat

Okay, track 12 is a Beethoven Sonata I learned the last time I had the flu... :shock: The andante of op. 79 (of which the last movement is a transposition of his opus 109's first movement.)


It's amazing how slow time can seem to move when one is achy.

Mozart – correct
Chopin posth. Waltz – correct
Beethoven – correct (Now can you find his house?)
4 points for you, Pete.

More hints time:

Pic 3 – I should have said before for the hint – Nathan and Pete and Terez. (think of my favorite composer) (also - I don't know the route number. Google doesn't tell me that.)

Two other pics not yet mentioned (#2 and #6) relate to my favorite composer.

One other pic is my other favorite composer, but this pic can also relate to another ‘new’ favorite composer.


Music:
Track 9 might just be something by my favorite composer. Think I’ll go do my exercises now.
Track 1 – Last name starts with a G
Track 11 – Last name starts with an M and he lived close to G.

****************
The only thing I like about the flu is that I usually loose a few pounds.

Pic 8 is Beethoven's house. How could I have missed THAT?!

I mean...there's a poster of it in my house! :lol:

Yes, M, I do already feel better. Fever's gone, food's staying down, asthma's all clear. Despite my legs still feelling like leaden jell-o. I managed a one mile walk today and it felt so good to move around!

(Should be running 3:49 miles before too long.) :lol:

Oh! Track 9 ( I KNEW I heard it many times before (as I'd played it just that way)) It is after the intro, the left hand of Trois Neuvelles Etudes, Nr 1.

I love trick questions.

Pete, you are correct about pic 8 and track 9, so 2 more points for you! Or actually four more points...at least I think so...can't remember my own rules, now.

And have you not guessed #3 pic? Type in "Chopin" in Google Earth and see what you get. As far as pic #6 - think Paris, France and Chopin. Pic #2 - think Paris, France and Chopin. Pic #1 - think Granados and Mompou. And wouldn't you know, I was just at a tapas restaurant tonight! I ate way too much, though, so I can't wait to run it off in the morning. (Won't be 3.5 miles, though!)

Funny about the poster of Beethoven in your house!

That's 3:49 miles. 3'49" miles...3 minute, 49 seconds per mile. I was joking because that's how much room for improvement there is in my condition. :lol:

I did manage to walk 3 miles in one hour, today so I can't be that ill.

Pic 6 is the top of the Eiffel Tower.
Pic 3 is Chopin, Louisiana. I thought it looked familiar. :lol:

OK, I'm tired again

What's the score?

The Mozart and Beethoven were the ones I could identify. I thought no.1 sounds very much like Granados and no.11 can't be anyone else but Mompou. Bit peeved I did not spot the Chopin, but it's really sneaky to only play the LH :x

Pic 6 is correct and so is pic #3. Isn't that funny?

Track 1 is Granados and track 11 is Mompou.

Pete - I think you are up to 10 points now. I declare you the Winner!! Hurray! Yippee! Way to go! etc...! :lol:

Pic #1 is Barcelona = Granados and Mompou
pic #2 is the Square D'Orleans in Paris - One of Chopin's apartments.

Ok - game over. Pete - you're up.

My run/walk this morning was more walking than running. But I was out there for a good hour, also. And then I went to my sister's for a family birthday party and ate too much again, so my run/walk was wasted. Oh well...I'll hit the pavement again tomorrow.

It was my understanding that everyone had heard...

That the bird is the word! :lol:
(A completely random reference to the 1963 song "Surfing Bird" the most annoying thing I've ever heard.)

I'm watching that silly cartoon "Family Guy" last night and that was the theme of the show. It was one of the very few times I've literally held my side laughing. Peter Griffin finds a record of the song and plays it till Stewie gets a nosebleed.

For those of you unfamiliar with the song, here it is. (It'll get stuck in your head like a bad toothache.) Sorry.

BTW, making a new game...suggestions? I could do more name that place but it's getting a bit tedious, IMO. Maybe I should make a pot party....I mean potpourri. :oops: :lol:

OMG, I should not have done that! Thanks a lot, Pete! :evil: :lol:

A piano pot party sounds interesting. :wink:

hhmmm ... I think I'll be washing my hair! :lol:

btw Pete ... slamming new sigline!

speaking of Family Guy ... there's a really wrong (in the funny way) episode where Peter plays the piano amazingly ... but only while he's stinking, fall-down drunk! hehe
