question game

a new game maybe?

rules: ask a question, with a python-connection or not.
it can for example be "what is your favourite python-song?" OR "what is your favourite song?"
both are within the rules.

then the next person answers that question and asks a new one.

try to keep the newest ones on top, so DONT press the comment/reply-burron, just put your answer and question on top

ok. my first question is:

what is your favourite post-python movie with a python in it? (all gilliams movies are allowed even if there is not pythons in all of them)

Ms. Neutron 1974: Q: If you could add yourself to a python sketch, which sketch would it be, and what character would you play?

I would be the knight with a chicken in the argument clinic, and I would hit the guy who gives hitting on the head lessons, and he would say waaa!

New Question: If you could be any of the pythons, who would it be and why?

Here Comes Another One at 7:43 pm April 24

Haha, that's awesome!

Here Comes Another One: If you could have invented one Python sketch, which would it be?

It'd have to be The Minister For Not Listening To People. It's totally unlike anything I'd ever write and I think it's hilarious!

My question: If you could add yourself to a Python sketch, which sketch would it be, and what character would you play? (NB: I don't mean an existing character, you have to think one up and decide how it would affect the sketch)

katithepythonfan: Q: Who's the best Disney prince? A: My favourite is prince Philip from Sleeping Beauty
New Q: If you could have invented one Python sketch, which would it be?

Here Comes Another One: Will you watch the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton?

Ugh! Not if I can help it! I guess it'd be interesting if you're interested in dresses/royals/weddings, but none of that really does much for me.

My question: Who's the best Disney prince?

Lvndr HppE: Have you ever attempted something that you thought would be scary, but then you found out it wasn't as bad as you thought? If so what?

A few years ago, I did a rope course that was 100 feet (or 3048 centimeters) off the ground. It may not sound that scary, but I hate heights as it is, and a lot of people either walked away without trying, or got caught in the middle, because they were too scared to move any further. When I reached the end, I was attached to a rope with a pulley. I was supposed to jump and the guy who was holding the other end of the rope was supposed to guide me down gently. The guy who was holding the other end of the rope was this scrawney looking guy. I had absolutely no confidence that when I jumped, I send him soaring upwards while I fell to my death. But I decided to jump anyway. Wouldn't you know it, he caught me. lol

Okay, my turn: Ummmm. . . Will you watch the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton?

Lvndr HppE at 7:54 pm April 17

lol. I just started thinking about the hardest part of the rope course. So, for those who don't know what I'm talking about when I say "rope course" Basically, you're in a harness of some sort and there is a rope above your head that might connect from one tree to the other. You're attached to that rope by a hook, and that hook is above your head, so that you can't really see it, no matter how you try. Because you can't see it, you tend to forget it's there. So, while you're attached to this rope, you have to go through these obstacles. The toughest obstacle for me was this rope bridge with wooden planks that kept bloody moving! So, there was this one plank that was so far away that I doubted that I could reach it with my little legs. I stood there a while, thinking about how I couldnt make it on my own, but eventually I realized that I had to just go for it, because there was a line of fellow college students waiting to go. So, I stepped out as far as my legs could stretch and fell. The woman behind me screamed, but I just pulled myself up and kept going. The funnest part was this zip line. You just hold on to a metal bar and fly across. lol.

a_nervous_wreck: Answer: It would have to be Patsy. He's just so cute! ^-^

Question: Have you ever attempted something that you thought would be scary, but then you found out it wasn't as bad as you thought? If so what?

Here Comes Another One: Have you ever had to give something up that you thought you couldn't live without but then found out you didn't miss it at all? If so what was it?

I became vegetarian at the beginning of this year & thought it'd be hard, but I haven't missed meat at all.

My question: if you had to marry a Python character (from FC or any of the films) who would you choose & why?

arkennedy: Here Comes Another One's question: White wine or red?

I like both but I like red more. I once tried a kind of sweet kind of sparkling red wine from Italy (not as sparkling as champagne but definitely not flat) that I really liked but I can't remember what it 's called, I wish I could because I thought it was the best wine I'd ever tasted.

My question:

Have you ever had to give something up that you thought you couldn't live without but then found out you didn't miss it at all? If so what was it?

arkennedy at 11:56 pm April 16

By the way if anyone has any idea what wine I'm referring to, please tell me even if it's only a guess. Thanks :)

cosita at 1:12 pm December 05

maybe Lambrusco?

Here Comes Another One: Next Question: Have you ever composed a musical piece, like REALLY composed (and not just whistled a random tune)? And if so, what was it and why did you do it? (kudos if you did!)

I've composed music for assessment when I was studying music, but I also write songs, if that counts.

My question: White wine or red?

Hanri at 11:59 pm April 16

Yeah a song counts. Awesome!

Hanri: Question: What kind of computer/console games you like or do you like them at all?

Answer: Easy one while listening to Beatles.. :) I enjoy precision and puzzle games. At the moment my top games are Beatles RockBand, Assassin's Creed, Diablo and WoW, although the last two don't quite match the description.... But they're excellent games nevertheless. Precision games like all the Guitar Hero and RockBand stuff get me going easily and the puzzling stories, like in Assassin's Creed. Never been too into racing games.

Next Question: Have you ever composed a musical piece, like REALLY composed (and not just whistled a random tune)? And if so, what was it and why did you do it? (kudos if you did!)

katithepythonfan: Q:Have you ever done something that at the time you were really embarrassed about, but then after the fact you think, "I would do it again in a heartbeat."?

A: I have a tendency to do all kind of weird things at a whim, especially at the theatre, but mostly I'm not embarrassed about them... When I applied for a movie for the first time, I had some regrets about it but now I would definitely repeat the experience.

Question: What kind of computer/console games you like or do you like them at all?

a_nervous_wreck: Answer: Bored. I have a sort of regular routine, but that's for getting ready for school and whatnot. I like to mix things up a bit sometimes

Question: Have you ever done something that at the time you were really embarrassed about, but then after the fact you think, "I would do it again in a heartbeat."? If so, what?

Here Comes Another One: Is it "Who you are defines what you do" or is it "What you do defines who you are"?

It should be the first one, but for a lot of people it seems to be the second.

My question: Does a regular routine make you feel bored or secure?

Lvndr HppE: Can you pinpoint your favourite aspect(s) of Python? e.g. wordplay, silliness, randomness, slapstick? I think it's a tie between the silliness and the intellectual jokes.
Okay: Is it "Who you are defines what you do" or is it "What you do defines who you are"?

Here Comes Another One: Is there bits in MPFC you don't like? Why?

Normally even the ones I don't like grow on me eventually, but right now (and I can't see this changing) I don't like the two Palin/bodily fluids sketches, i.e. the American guy in Mr Neutron, and his David Attenborough parody. To me that's just gross. I'm also sick to death of the Lumberjack Song (though that doesn't really count as not liking it, since I used to love it) and I'm not a fan of Nudge Nudge, that one's just a bit 'meh' for me.

My question: Can you pinpoint your favourite aspect(s) of Python? e.g. wordplay, silliness, randomness, slapstick? (for the record, I would find this really hard)

katithepythonfan: Question: Would you rather end world hunger or have world peace?
Answer: I would rather end world hunger, because even though there would be a way to end all current conflicts and get world peace, it probably wouldn't last forever...

Question: Is there bits in MPFC you don't like? Why?

Here Comes Another One at 7:23 am March 23

You should check out Not That Late's "What We Don't Like" thread, that was fun.

katithepythonfan at 12:17 pm March 26

Oh... I beautifully forgetted that a thread like that exists...

Lvndr HppE: If 'to be or not to be' isn't the question, what is the question?
Hmmm. That's an interesting question. I would say. . . Is it "Who you are defines what you do", or is it "'What you do defines who you are"?

Now, for my question: Would you rather end world hunger or have world peace?

Here Comes Another One: If you would send a gift to one of the Pythons, who would you send it and what would it be?

I'd be tossing up whether to send young Eric Idle one of those chest expander things, or present day Michael Palin a copy of Molvania.

My question: If 'to be or not to be' isn't the question, what is the question?

katithepythonfan: Question: What song can't you stop listening to right now? Answer: Club for Five's version of Life On Mars?...

New question:If you would send a gift to one of the Pythons, who would you send it and what would it be?

Here Comes Another One: ANW's question: If you were given the chance to go back and save Graham in any way possible, how would you do it?

I'd use some sort of magic or futuristic science to clear the damage from his body. That way I wouldn't be forcing him to change in any way, but he'd have the chance to change himself if he wanted to.

My question: What song can't you stop listening to right now?

Here Comes Another One: l_wojcik's question: If you could replace a character or be a new character in one of the Python movies, What character and what movie would it be?

I'd like to be either one of the dinner party guests at the end of MOL, or (even tho' I'm a girl) John's character who questions Mike & Eric on why they're dressed as a tiger.

My question: Many people hate the ending of Holy Grail - what alternate ending would you have chosen?

a_nervous_wreck at 11:55 pm March 13

Answer: Something like the ending of 300, but with EXPLOSIONS!!!!

Question: If you were given the chance to go back and save Graham in any way possible, how would you do it?

a_nervous_wreck at 11:57 pm March 13

Ah! Damn it, my computer is screwing everything up! This wasn't meant to be a reply!

l_wojcik: a_nervous_wreck's question: If you could have been a childhood friend to any of the pythons, but not a later girlfriend or boyfriend, just a good friend, which one would you choose and why?
answer: I would be freinds with Eric! I feel like he would be really energetic and fun to hang around with. He seems like one of those chaps you'd pal and prank with.

My question: If you could replace a character or be a new character in one of the Python movies, What character and what movie would it be?

a_nervous_wreck: Answer: I would do the one where John and Mike are explaining how a flying sheep works in French, and they're all jumping around imitating it.

Question: If you could have been a childhood friend to any of the pythons, but not a later girlfriend or boyfriend, just a good friend, which one would you choose and why?

Here Comes Another One: arkennedy's question: If you could write your own Python sketch what would it be about and which Pythons would play which characters?

OK, I have one. It is a parody of those CSI type shows, especially this UK one called Waking The Dead, which is particularly atrocious. John would play the main hard-bitten boss guy, Eric would play the sickly female profiler who talks like a psychology textbook, and Graham would impersonate Gunther von Hagen (the German live autopsy guy, have you seen his show?) as the pathologist. Every now and again he starts humming to himself, and when the boss tells him off he says: 'Sorry, sorry, I was just examining ze naked man.' (There's a naked man in the live autopsy show)

Then there's this idealistic new detective, played by Michael, who says things like: 'Oh, you're all so pretty, like flowers in the sunshine,' and 'Gosh, it's dingy in here, let's have these blinds open!' And he comes with his own tealady, who's called Phyllis (played by Terry J), who enters the scene when Michael pulls a lever, which opens a hole in the wall from which she + tea trolley emerge. Then when the team go out on the case, Phyllis makes sandwiches, and while the team are all walking down the corridor in that really posy way that people always do in these shows, Phyllis is following them with the tea trolley.

My question: if you could have any Python scene for a poster on your wall, what would it be?

J.Gambolputty at 8:36 am March 13

:DD God, that's funny! I'd like to see it on telly ;)

arkennedy at 9:10 pm March 12

That sounds like it would be a great sketch :)

Here Comes Another One at 5:42 am March 13

Thanks!

arkennedy at 10:50 am March 13

You're welcome :)

arkennedy: Here Comes Another One's question: My question: If you could recast any movie with the Pythons (playing multiple characters if necessary), which would you choose & why?

I know there are already several version of it but after much thought my choice is Robin Hood. Why? Because my favorite Python sketch is Dennis Moore and I think a Python version of Robin Hood might be funny.

My Question: If you could write your own Python sketch what would it be about and which Pythons would play which characters?

Here Comes Another One: ANW's question: if you could go back to any point in history, when would you go to?

Depends if I was visiting or staying there. If I was visiting I'd go back to about 1817 and meet Lord Byron. If I was staying, probably the late '60s / early '70s.

My question: If you could recast any movie with the Pythons (playing multiple characters if necessary), which would you choose & why?

a_nervous_wreck: Um... its a toss up between Graham and Terry J. I would absolutely die if I could have a pet owl, but marmosets are the cutest monkeys EVAR!!

My question: if you could go back to any point in history, when would you go to?

Lvndr HppE at 3:15 pm February 22

A pet owl like in Harry Potter? That would be cool.

Lvndr HppE: If the Pythons had miraculously turned into animals, what animal would each Python represent, based on their personalities?
Wow, that is a toughy. Well, while this is one that could be up for discussion, I would say that Mike would be a koala, because they are seen as being cute, cuddly, and you never hear of any koala attacks. John would be a giraffe, because he's tall and moves funny. Graham would be an owl, because they are thought of as wise, due to their big eyes. Eric would be a chimpanze, because they're silly and like to show off. The two Terrys are tough. I guess Terry G would be a ram, because he's often fighting with movie companies to make his movies. Terry J. . . Terry J would be. . . a marmoset. They're small animals and he is the shortest Python. ;-)
Okay, now that I've turned them all into animals, which would you want as a pet? And you can't say all of them; that's just cheating! :-P

Here Comes Another One at 3:33 am February 23

This question made me laugh so I told my brother, & he misheard me & thought I said 'biscuits' instead of animals. He said 'Eric Idle would be a pink wafer.' I giggled muchly. XD

Mrs Attila the Hun 93: If you could go back and work behind the scenes of one of the movies, which movie would you help with?

That's a difficult one ... I would pick Holy Grail. I know what you're thinking ... but listen one second - the reason I picked it was because I would've loved to see Mike's hissy-fit when he had to play the mud-eater and also Terry G storming off after having an argument with John. Lol, that would be so funny to watch :D

My question: If the Pythons had miraculously turned into animals, what animal would each Python represent, based on their personalities?

arkennedy at 12:59 pm February 22

I wish I could have seen Michael's hissy-fit and Terry Gilliam stormingaround as well :)

l_wojcik at 9:17 pm February 22

Didn't think of that. I think I'd have to agree.

l_wojcik: If you could have been a fly on the wall at one of the python-boys script-meetings, what season and episode or what movie would you pick and whY?
Being a writer, that's a beautiful question! I would sit in on their meeting for episodes 14 and 28. Those would be such amazing meetings to be a part of!

My question:
If you could go back and work behind the scenes of one of the movies, which movie would you help with?

the_thina at 6:37 am February 23

I dont think I can get away with calling myself a writer, but I do enjoy greatly to write small stories, so I guess that was where the wuestion came from. ;)
but hey, I said ONE, not TWO....

l_wojcik at 8:28 am February 23

I meant to say OR...

the_thina: If you could have had a minor role in any of Terry Gilliam's movies, which movie would you have chosen and why?
oh thats a hard one, but the first that pops up in mind is fear and loathing. both johnny and christina in that one, I like both of them a lot!

my question: if you could have been a fly on the wall at one of the python-boys script-meetings, what season and episode or what movie would you pick and whY?
