The Brentwood Gazette Weekly Teaser: 10-10=2012

Hmmm … 

Here’s hoping the picture lot gets editorial approval.

If nothing else, it’s a nice melding of the Gazette People logo: with the stock beer glass I’ve been using as posters for some time, now.

Well …

I like it, anyway … 

At ANY rate … ?

I’m assuming you’re here for the (very metaphorical) beer.

Or, if not the beer, then certainly the quiz questions … !


Now, as you know, I’ve been writing free question sets for some time: and the Daily Teaser, as well.

But it’s only recently that I’ve started writing for the Brentwood Gazette.

If you’re here because of that, Hello and Welcome!

And let’s get to this week’s questions, shall we?   Both here, and there, we’re giving a mention to World Mental Health Day.

Q1) Manic Depression is now better known as what condition … ?
Q2) More to the point, who — in 1967 — wrote a song called Manic Depression … ?
Q3) Which star of Jaws suffers with Manic Depression: Roy Schneider, Robert Shaw or Richard Dreyfus … ?
Q4) That star admitted he had the condition after being interviewed by which celebrity fellow sufferer and comedian … ?
Q5) Which birdwatcher — and former Goody — suffers with Depression … ?
Q6) He famously shares that condition with Ian Curtis, the late lead singer of Joy Division: what was the name of the 2007 film about Ian Curtis’ life … ?
Q7) How did former British PM, Winston Churchill, refer to his depression … ?
Q8) Which British businessman — and former balloonist and record company owner — has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder … ?
Q9) More to the point, which famously naked TV chef has ALSO been diagnosed with the condition … ?
Q10) And finally … Gary Numan, the singer behind Cars, and Our Friends Electric, suffers from what … ?
And here’s last week’s Poe answers* … !
A1) Baltimore.
A2) The Raven.
A3) Soul Music.   (Quoth the Raven — on the Discworld — “… doesn’t do the N-word”.)
A4) 2012.
A5) John Cusack.
A6) 19th January.
A7) 2009.
A8) ‘The Masque of the Red Death’.
A9) Sherry.
A10) ‘The Murders in the Rue Morgue’.
Enjoy those, everyone.

Have a good day.
