rocknrollmassacre is on. Tune in, yeah?!
but I bet his knowledge of cathedrals is nowhere near meles_meles/vgw's
just to be clear - I've not been on UC and never will
and are you van_gok_wan?
yeah just vgw is most commonly me so people might get confused
I just didn't realise that darwindude was vgwan.
I've never quite understood, and end up not working out who someone is once they've changed.
except people like CG and KiK..
when i last saw melesmeles in April, it was the day he was coaching the UC team (wasn't allowed to be on again but still wanted to be involved)
and the other thing i remember him talking about was spending lots of money on visiting cathedrals
i love that man
WE AM CULTURED.
on camera? I reckon 15.
and getting the answer wrong, albeit in a way that you could sympathise with.
whereby he strokes his hair back every time he buzzes in with a right answer.
ARRRRRGGGGHHHH, what's going on with his face?
but I'm having minor fringe envy here
They look like old-school Hannah Barbara cartoons.
(not Tristan of course <3)
University Challenge or his name...
Dickhead, prick, obnoxious, sinister, villain, "whizzing his tits of", "the most annoying captain of all time", "I never want to see Burke again", smug, annoying, silly, "up himself", berk (obvs), "I'd love to punch Burke", cunt.
He's the breakout star of University Challenge 2011!
but I bet whoever is on the tv at any given time is threatened with violence by some twitter wanker. Sandi Toksvig is on now.
Come on Manchester, this is a fucking bloodbath!!
Selwyn are utterly woeful
i'd take that as a compliment
And these are just contradictory:
Tristan is ace
you are actually the most horrific person ever. Fucking hell.
yes your most recent twitter update is awful. take it down.
it might not be for the people involved. http://twitter.com/#!/search/jamesgoldstone
I'm sure that no-ones fussed by it. I say that not knowing anything about the situation.
idk, it's just incredibly embarrassing and disrespectful to tell the internet who your sister has slept with (without permission). It's none of james_'s business. It's none of our business.
obvs that "without permission" is to be read qua telling not qua sexing
stop pretending to be stupid
for good measure, like.
anne of cleeves
I guess he looks a bit like him. SELWYN OXLEY knows loads of useless Universty Challenge-style shit and is genuinely bright. It was a really weak combination on their side. Also collectively they look about 12 and seemed about as unflappable as a neurotic doormouse.
Do they move around in later episodes?
Paxman doing that 'only I may groove to the music' type sitting down dance
even when he and his whole team knew it was wrong.
i can't imagine my mum knowing which internet forums i use
which other DiSer has been on University Challenge?
but there was another guy who knows a lot of DiSers (including melesmeles and RnRM) who was on there from one of the Oxford colleges the other year.
yeah he's not a DiSser. He's famous for such things as selling the names of anti-cuts protesters to the Daily Mail and going on holiday quite a lot.
Hosted by Glinner?
Perhaps I should set up a match.
the student room yeah?
Mainly computer game and music forums. Couple of film ones in there too.
my TV quiz show days are long behind me now though
did you go on one? does anyone know anyone who went on 15 to 1? <3
illiam G Stewart is as teak as he looks.
yeah, I was on Blockbusters
...around about the time you were born more or less
My A level politics teacher that I was and still am deeply in love with was on 15 to 1. He let us watch his video of it after an exam as a treat once.
Pointless is superb. Where's the clip.
he won 5 large
candidates for being disers.....they were nice actually, they one, but then failed to actually win the dosh (which was the lowest amount possible cos the big prize had been won last week)
she doesn't even like them that much. There wasn't enough literature on Bearsuit though.
because she did John Shuttleworth's radio work, meaning Humphrys had to ask some magnificent questions: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oOGtGsMmMAM
(sic) Not that I know of. She spends her time doing cool stuff not being an internet loser. I do pub quizzes with her sometimes and her general knowledge is incredible/bizarre.
8 minutes in and it's 95 - -10 :-D
and came up to edinburgh and tried to get aff with everyone i know. He was up for this years festival too and i coyly tried to get his attention via a facebook status with the idea of meeting up but he didn't reply.
mum on tristan burke - "ooh, odd fella"
horsebag of toot before he went on.
Also, did anyone else notice that Tristan would take a big sip of water every time he would get a question right. Victory sip?
The answer is three – like Paxman said. Clean your ears out.
you really think that Paxman and a team of researchers would get this wrong, and that you'd got it right?
Although I said 'evade/avoid' like Tristan did on the last question and got it wrong too.
simultaneously a brainbox and a LAD.
A good crew. Burke is an endearing shambles/spod.
(celebrity in the sense that a couple of people reading this might have heard of him)
it's good :)
good looks and the ability to really, REAllY twat people are valued above intelligence
contestant of the year, all years.
Never gonna smile.
But still, yeah.
even i got that one
going from worst haircut on tv to a less terrible lesbian barnet
I think RnRmassacre(Tristan) is great.
I am proud to have met him, and brought him a drink when he was underage.
has this series REALLY been going since August????
It only seems like yesterday I tripped over an unconscious tristramn lying next to a stage at truck *wipes away a single tear*
or does my iplayer need something doing? ir keeps saying the content is not available at the moment, try later (it does it with everything)
It's working fine for me here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01cml04/University_Challenge_2011_2012_Episode_33/
Great bunch o' lads. Or something. I like them a lot.
After I got over the headphones thing. They play the game the right way, with a smile on their face.
Any team with Brian May and Carlos D on it is alright by me.
just watched last week's, that UCL team are pretty entertaining although it was disappointing to lose the hot one from Balliol.
he's a suave cat, and quite normal-looking by UC standards.
Kids, this is why you should stay in school.
Has Tristan won yet? I don't have the BBC
Worcester College Oxford, I destroyed you single-handedly. The shame. The shame.
i swear to God, my dog even got that Colne question.
the Manchester team had a half page article in today's Manchester Evening News.
In it they were accused of being the most obnoxious team in the history of the show (bollocks given the lad on the series but last, forget his name), and it was revealed that they actually have professional coaching (bit weak).
I take it you mean beyond having gone to school and then university? any more info?
Most obnoxious is pretty strong through.
I've been boasting to people at work about how I brought him some drinks when he was underage
I wouldn't say obnoxious. They seem to have a knack of making an educated guess and getting it right each time which is a bit annoying. They probably have been revising an overview of subjects and eras each, so if Paxman says "name the 17th century artist who..." - the question is irrelevent, they can then just name any of them as a guess.
