Thanks for the scoring clarify Chris - been a while since I watched it TBH :oops: That sounds much more workable anyway :)

Yes you're still Alan unless you and Pat want to swap? - the Stephen part can also be chief elf of course :wink:

mailing Eelco about the guests now :thumbl:

Jan Van Kverm on the other place wrote:Just heard back from Eelco re the guests - he's not able to let us know who they are until he's got them signed up, BUT he wants to recruit some QI Elves NOW to help at the Convention so he's sure that it'll all be achievable...

...so! If you're going to the Convention do you fancy volunteering to help with getting Discworld QI set up and running?!!!!!.

We have Chris and Pat on board as the 'resident' panellist and quiz master respectively and we'll be keeping to the QI format more or less, so the Elves are going to be the backroom peeps helping with setting the questions and other bits and pieces.

I've asked engineeringsimon (TP board) if he'll help out with a suitably arranged Discworld QI theme tune, so that's one bit sorted, but there's all kinds of other things to consider like General Ignorance and the panellists buzzers - stuff like that. Could be a lot of fun :D


Update - 2 volunteers from the TP board so with me that's 3 'not on stage' Elves so far :D

It has also occurred to us that of course Discworld QI Elves almost by definition can be of the nasssty persuasion . . . Image - something to keep you out of the bar and doing something constructive/destructive during the day anyhoo finding rude sounds for the buzzers perhaps? :wink:

OK Chaps - as of yesterday Discworld QI is officially on the programme for the convention
and accordingly this thread will become a kind of drop in centre for the definitely signed up Discworld QI Elves who, atm are -

myself
Who's Wee Dug
Sjoerd
michelanCello
engineeringsimon (musical director)
Dotsie and

Chris Boote who is going to be our Stephen Fry/quiz master.

Pat is now playing the Alan Davies/panellist part in view of his other convention obligations (atm Discworld QI is probably going to be fixed for the early evening programme on Saturday)

If you want to contribute to the format we'll be working on pre-convention with specific ideas for questions etc can you please PM me rather than post in here as the Monks of Cool don't want everything going on in the open too much from this point, although the programme will be out soon on the convention web site :dance:

If you would like to be an Elf (whether or not you're going to the convention) you're still more than welcome to join us - again just PM me and I'll add you to the mailgroup we've set up :mrgreen:

why doesn't someone ask Stephen Fry if he could pop along and host?
:)
I know Mr Boote has the cheek!
As we journey through life, discarding baggage along the way, we should keep an iron grip, to the very end, on the capacity for silliness.

Don't think we haven't thought about it :P but the Monks of Cool have asked us to keep this strictly as 'fan-organised' - also I think the committee might not have the wherewithal to lure Mr Fry into an appearance... :meow:

Long time, no post :lol:

Well things are ticking along now and we're starting to put together some visuals for the show which is now called 'Strangely Fascinating'.

CLICK HERE to have an advance preview of our opening titles sequence and 3 contenders for our theme tune - if you're a member on the TP forum you can also vote for your favourite tune as we can't make our minds up... :oops: :D

Well it's all musical credits to engineeringsimon (and to michelanCello for one of them - UU theme) - they're both really clever musicians :D
