The Daily Teaser — 9-11-2013

You know, I am really getting used to the BBC’s iPlayer, I really am.

This week’s episode of QI and Have I Got News For You … ?    You can’t go FAR wrong, I’m sure.

Actually, iPlayer’s got advantages over Channel 4’s catch-up service.   Channel 4’s iPod app is nice … but won’t play through my TV: UNLIKE iPod, currently happily showing all sorts of things.

Point against Channel Four, I think, that … !

Hmmm … 

Let’s get moving, shall we?   Before I start to rant … 


Yesterday’s Teaser* saw Debbi putting in her answers: AND bagging five out out of five.

Let’s see how she — and you — do with today’s questions, shall we?   Here they are, along with the ‘How To,’ License and video … 

Q1) 9th November, 1967, was the publication date for the first edition of Rolling Stone magazine.   The magazine was named after a song by whom … ?
Q2) That first issue’s lead article was about which music festival: Monterey, Glastonbury or Woodstock … ?

Here’s yesterday’s questions and answers …

A1) Tenochtitlan: in what’s now, of course, Mexico City.
Q2) That city was ruled by which native American tribe: the Aztec, Inca or Mayans … ?
A2) The Aztec.
Q3) The tribe concerned was led by whom … ?

A4) Mexico: in Mexico City, to be exact.
Q5) Finally … Cortés was one of the generation of Spanish conquerors known as … what … ?
Enjoy those.

I’ll leave you with this thought …
“When I first heard Bob Dylan at Monterey I did not like him.   I was deaf.”
Ralph J. Gleason, Rolling Stone music critic and cofounder.
And a Bob Dylan tune … 

Have a good day … !
