Round 30

I have now presented you with three separate rounds that touched on my high school years, so maybe it is time to move on. But there is that one culminating ceremony that must be gotten through to close out the high school experience. So, this will be the Graduation Round.

1. Back when I graduated from high school in 1962 (yes, I am ancient), the traditional music for any graduation ceremony was Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstances. In actuality the music used is taken from the first of five marches that Elgar wrote which are collectively known as the Pomp and Circumstance Marches (there is a sixth but that was actually put together after Elgar’s death from sketches that he had done for the piece). Please give me the formal name of any of the first five Pomp and Circumstance Marches or give me the name of the musical friend that Elgar dedicated any one of the marches to.

2. Nowadays, the traditional music that was used back in my time is forgone for some more contemporary pieces, I supposed, in an attempt to be more relevant to the graduates. At top40.about.com you will find a “Top Ten Graduation Songs of 2008” list. Please give me any of the ten songs on that list.

3. A contemporary piece that did not make the Top Ten List in the previous question was Vitamin C’s song “Graduation (Friends Forever),” but it seems to be quite apt for the occasion. Please give me any of the lines from that song that begins with the letter A.

4. No graduation would be complete without a graduation speaker. And many a piece of advice has been handed down to graduates over the years by both the famous and not-so-famous. At this site you will find some wise words indeed given to previous graduates. Please give me any of the quotes and author listed there.

5. No graduation would be complete without presents to the newly graduated honoree. There are plenty of places on the web that offer suggestion as to what a suitable gift may be. This site actually has some interesting and unique gifts that fall in an affordable price range. Please tell me one of the items offered. (Please limit your responses to the items on this page - the first 10 items from the site.)

I hope you have all made your way through the ceremony and have successfully completed the Graduation Round. The round will finish noonish (FT Time) on Wednesday, February 4. I hope you all have a great weekend.

Round 27
"Scandalous"
Eight Earth-moving players !

1. At any rate - please tell me a documented/official item and/or event on boxer Mike Tyson's *rap sheet* (one of his 'brushes with the law') from the 1970s or the 1980s.

For 10 Points:
May, 1988 Tyson is involved in a New York fender-bender and gives his damaged $183,000 US Bentley convertible to two policemen, who wind up suspended when their superiors found out; Oct. 2, 1988 Police are summoned to Tyson's Bernardsville, N.J., estate after he hurls furniture out the window. Wife Robin Givens flees with her mother and files for divorce five days later; Dec. 12, 1988 A jury finds Tyson guilty of battery and fines him $100 US for grabbing, propositioning and insulting Sandra Miller at a New York nightclub; Dec. 15, 1988 Lori Davis sues Tyson for allegedly grabbing her buttocks while dancing at the same club on the same night; Apr. 9, 1989 Tyson is accused of striking a parking attendant three times with an open hand outside a Los Angeles nightclub, but charges are dropped; Apr. 26, 1989 Tyson is ticketed in Albany, N.Y., for drag racing. He is also ticketed on May 5, again for drag racing
For 5 Points:
1978 Arrested for purse snatching as a 12-year-old in Brooklyn and sent to Tryon School for Boys (2)

He was busted June 21, 1987 for assaulting a parking lot attendant, again in August, 1988 after a street brawl with a fellow boxer and one more time on Sept. 4, 1988 for driving his BMW into a tree, allegedly attempting suicide . Things in the 1990s didn't get much smoother for Mr. Tyson, either ...

2. The film was based on a play that opened on Broadway on March 31, 2005. Kindly tell me one of the four main characters, or the actor who played them, on opening night of the play "Doubt".

For 10 Points:

3. Have a look at Mr. Song's website and tell me a color that their hats are available in there - but pick only ones starting with the letters found in B-A-R-A-C-K ... O-B-A-M-A.

For 10 Points:
Brown, Copper, Mint, Red
For 5 Points:
Mauve (2), Black (2)

Red, orange, aqua, royal and champagne are the other colors at the hat shoppe.

4. All that aside, the crime of wire fraud is codified at 18 U.S.C. § 1343 (as per the U.S. Code), and described briefly. Tell me a word with 7 or 8 letters that appears in that description. Wikipedia might prove expressly helpful there, once again ...

For 10 Points:

For 5 Points:
Commerce (2), Defraud (2), Signals (2)

Whoever, devised, property, promises, writings, pictures, purpose and affects were words used in the description, too.

Engagements, Goodnight, Participated, Served, Splendid, Stampedes

Shirked (2)

The epitaph reads as follows:
"Bose Ikard served with me four years on the Goodnight-Loving Trail, never shirked a duty or disobeyed an order, rode with me in many stampedes, participated in three engagements with Comanches, splendid behavior."

5. I'm looking for an ingredient of Mr. John's Chorizo and Seafood Gumbo that is not (in any way) meat or fish that was prepared on that episode.

For 10 Points:

In football we always said that the other team couldn't beat us. We had to be sure that we didn't beat ourselves. And that's what people have to do, too--make sure they don't beat themselves." Woody Hayes
"My favorite animal is the turtle. The reason is that in order for the turtle to move, it has to stick its neck out. There are going to be times in your life when you’re going to have to stick your neck out. There will be challenges and instead of hiding in a shell, you have to go out and meet them!" Ruth Westheimers
"Just keep trying! Never give up, never, never give up! Because the only person that can stop you is - you!" Yvonne Thornton
"...believe that the sort of life you wish to live is, at this very moment, just waiting for you to summon it up. And when you wish for it, you begin moving toward it, and it, in turn, begins moving toward you." Susan-Lori Parks
“If you want to play a game, go to where it’s played and find a way to get in. Things happen when you get in the game." Chris Matthews

"Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart." Steve Jobs (2)
Not Chosen: There were nine other quotes to choose from. My favorite of the remaining ones is "It is so easy to waste our lives: our days, our hours, our minutes. It is so easy to take for granted the color of the azaleas, the sheen of the limestone on Fifth Avenue, the color of our kid's eyes, the way the melody in a symphony rises and falls and disappears and rises again. It is so easy to exist instead of live. " Anna Quinlan
