Maybe, but we're still two shows short of a quorum...

I guess I have to confess that I've never followed this
onicle thread, I don't know the roolz nor do I have the
directions as to what to do. Sorry. Perhaps if you
share.........
The quorum business escapes me.

quorum = the minimum number needed to conduct business. My Latin fails me here and I'm too lazy to LIU even though I'm sitting at the computer. A genetive case pronoun along the lines of "to whom, plural" or something.

What we're seeking in this onnicle are the names of musical plays and/or movies, buried among the distraction of a story of greater or lesser relevance. We've been told there are twelve, So far we've identified ten.

Examples are in my red letter sequences in recent post above - Rent, Hair, Oliver.

Why it's called an "Onnicle" escapes me. Because someone named it that, that's why, I guess.

Thanks for taking the time to help a "newbie" on the site.
Sometimes I feel it is just an in-club, and you either
are 'in' or not a player. I appreciate it. I know
all I have to do usually is ask, but sometimes a little
help is good too.(and I thought 'quorum' meant a minimum
number of people had to be playing.)

Speed is a movie. Is there also a musical?
Backseat??? I don't follow all the musical-scene, but I do
enjoy them.


If following your comment above in #195438, then Speed
would fit: a movie about a bus that cannot go below
50 mph for if it does it will explode.

Gee, Luke, you've been part of this playing-with-words forum here for long enough that I don't consider you a newbie any more, not by a long shot. You're a regular old-timer by now!

PS you're also the entire Board's top poster for the last 30 days - did you see that? Your hold on Newbie status is getting more and more tenuous...
