So, my first attempt at fashioning and presenting a round for a pub quiz was an unequivocal success, thanks for asking. Not one person in the room knew the answer to the first question, "Name the artist and the song from these amazing opening lines: I Went home with the waitress/the way I always do", which was pretty shocking, but they got into the rest with admirable enthusiasm. Ufck it then, I'll post the rest of the questions here, and you can answer them in the comments. Remeber, if you use Google, you are only cheating yourself.
Oh, and the round was called Akira The Don's Jail And Destitution for You Andrew Crossley round. Get in!

There you go. How did you do? Well I hope. You are reading this, after all, I expect a ceratin degree of musical sophistication.
Anyway, have at ye a warning: As work on AkiraTheDon.com Version 5.0 draws to its earth shattering conclusion, you can expect some downtime over the weekend. OK?
Thank you, and good day.
