Sounds fine to me, srini ! The more the merrier!
OK, here it is:

Round 4 Monday

1. José Canseco, former slugger with the Oakland Athletics, wrote a controversial book called "Juiced" regarding his sport. Please give me a word in the subtitle of that book, please (excluding the words 'and', 'how' and 'got').
2. The Bravo channel's reality show Project Runway [Season 3] is down to just 6 designers left in the contest. As of today, 9-4-06, name one of them. First name answers will be fine and, to add, Angela was the contestant voted off last (which may or may not help...).
3. The 2nd Australia National Tango Championships were held on June 12, 2006 with three couples coming in first, second and third in different categories. Tell me the name of one of the dancers who was in the top three couples in the "Stage Category" - which means there are 6 correct answers, of course.
4. Thailand is divided into 5 major sections. I need the name of a Province that is located in the "South" section (14 of them from which to choose).
5. Multi-talented Melvin Van Peebles released a few albums over the years. Just pick one, if you would. Note: one of his albums was also a Broadway cast album later - both will be counted as the same thing.

Whew ! This will close up Friday-ish ~ any help needed please PM me. Have fun AND a great week, too!

2 A Theatrical Sarah (character in a play OR actress)
3 A Movie/TV Sara (Character in a movie or TV show/series) OR actress)
4 A movie with 'Princess' in the title.

Round 4 - Monday
9 Players !

1. José Canseco, former slugger with the Oakland Athletics, wrote a controversial book called "Juiced" regarding his sport. Please give me a word in the subtitle of that book, please (excluding the words 'and', 'how' and 'got').

The full title of the book (which was a waste of trees, by the way ) is: "Juiced: Wild Times, Rampant 'Roids, Smash Hits and How Baseball Got Big"

For 10 points:
'Rampant', 'Hits', 'Baseball'.
For 5 points:
'Smash' (2), 'Wild' (4).

2. The Bravo channel's reality show Project Runway [Season 3] is down to just 6 designers left in the contest. As of today, 9-4-06, name one of them. First name answers will be fine and, to add, Angela was the contestant voted off last (which may or may not help...).

I find myself on the horns of a dilemma here (ouch ) ~ I can't post detailed results because one player lives in a place where the show is just starting up and doesn't want to hear *spoilers*. I can respect that.
I will say that everyone scored 5 points, as the dust settled.

3. The 2nd Australia National Tango Championships were held on June 12, 2006 with three couples coming in first, second and third in different categories. Tell me the name of one of the dancers who was in the top three couples in the "Stage Category" - which means there are 6 correct answers, of course.

For 10 ponts:
Ana Andre [1st Place]
For 5 points:
Amy Georgina Teuchert (2), Fabio Robles [1st Place] (2), Federico Mattiuzzi (2), Hosanna Heinrich (2).

Which left Jairo Sanchez Rivera the only one not mentioned.

4. Thailand is divided into 5 major sections. I need the name of a Province that is located in the "South" section (14 of them from which to choose).

For 10 points:
Narathiwat, Trang, Songkhla, Ranong, Phattalung, Phuket, Nakhon Si Thammarat.
For 5 points:
Phang Nga (2).

5. Multi-talented Melvin Van Peebles released a few albums over the years. Just pick one, if you would. Note: one of his albums was also a Broadway cast album later - both will be counted as the same thing.

For 10 points:
Brer Soul, Don't Play Us Cheap, Ain't Supposed to Die a Natural Death, Ghetto Gothic, As Serious as a Heart Attack, Sweet Sweetback's Baadasss Song.
For 5 points:
What the...You Mean I Can't Sing? (3).

The others were "Watermelon Man" and "X-Rated by an All-White Jury".

The Results...

glamel....40 points!
bethfay, cinnamOn, gemini19, Howie72, Mugaboo, ren33....35 points!
MaggieG....30 points!
srini701....25 points!

Excellent, just excellent, job to you all once again ! Congratulations to glamel who collects a point this time! Thanks to all for playing!

Round 11 Monday

Today's theme is an actress who makes it both clear and a blessing that someone had the good sense to create words that blend, cameras that watch and stages that resound. I venerate Miss Vanessa Redgrave and she was in my head this time, so let's try:

1. Redgrave has been nominated for 6 Academy Awards (winning one so far). Please give the name of a character she played that earned her one of those nominations.
2. In 1980 Vanessa played Fánia Fenelon (a woman in the ungodly position to be forced to play "lovely" music as her associates were marched off to die at Auschwitz) in the TV film "Playing For Time". It was a fact-based story. Kindly name one of Fenelon's fellow musicians in 'The Girl Orchestra of Auschwitz' (the actual women).
3. Redgrave's mother, actress Rachel Kempson, was born in 1910 in Dartmouth in Devonshire, England - where stands what remains of Dartmouth Castle. Pick another castle that can be found in Devon County.
4. "If These Walls Could Talk" was another TV film released in 1996. It dealt with several angles of the abortion issue (Vanessa won an Emmy in 2000 for the follow-up to it ~ even though the second movie didn't deal with abortion or the conflicts involved therein). My question this time? Name someone who, in real life, has been murdered in the course of anti-abortion attacks in the U.S. [the acceptable answers will be public servants/medical personnel who were specifically targeted for their activities and not patients or onlookers or other miscellaneous victims]. My source shows that there are eight officially labelled people here. More are possible.
5. Her husband, director/writer Tony Richardson (1928-1991), made a movie of "The Charge of The Light Brigade" (1968), based on a poem by Alfred, Lord Tennyson from his 1855 collection "Maud, and Other Poems". Pick another poem in that collection, aside from "...Brigade".

This will close sometime Friday or thereabouts. As always, let me know if you get stuck anywhere. Enjoy!

Edited to correct the first name of Vanessa's husband (who, for a moment there, was given the name of her father ). Sorry 'bout that...
