I know that Murl isn't here anymore but maybe Norm? Shout out to Sweet Darroline Females who had a total of 4 turnovers for the game last night. Was wondering if this was a record? Great job ladies, you're amazing! Party like rock stars.

I don't have per game stats readily available, however, I am pretty certain that Alvin and the Chikmunks has the record for fewest turns in a game (10 total, 1 by females) in the semi finals a few seasons ago.

The Ongoing History of Black Agath
Chapter 3: More than three but not quite four

Excerpts of reviews of the Reality of Masters world tour of 1971/72:

“Black Agath is rocking HARDER than all other bands put together” –Rolling Stone
“Black Agath brings the HOT HOT HEATH to all their concerts” –Billboard
KALU KALU plays a mean, mean cowbell” –Music Week

Following the Reality of Masters world tour in 1972, Black Agath took its first break in three years. “Reality of Masters was kind of like the end of an era, the first three albums, and we decided to take our time with the next album."

The last gig of the Reality of Masters tour was at The Capitol Theatre in Passaic, New Jersey. Immediately afterwards, the band checked into The Drake Hotel in New York City where they met an up and coming musician who simply went by the name “Carter” and decided to invite him to a drug laced orgy in their penthouse suite. Three days into the orgy, Hozzy Hodsbourne called down to the reception screaming “WE ARE AN UNSTOPPABLE SEX MACHINE!!!” Two days after that, the band quietly checked out of the hotel leaving a simple note, “…Carter is an Unstoppable Sex Machine. We’re done here. Going to check out the local jazz clubs”.

During the spring of 1972, the band spent their evenings experiencing the rich and diverse musical genres of New York City. They became good friends with the legendary jazz clarinetist, Benny Goodman, the avant-garde synth-pop auteur, Amanda Murdoch, and the leader of a quirky latin-asian fusion quartet, Raoul Tanyan.

In June 1972, the band reconvened in Los Angeles with their newfound friends to begin work on their next album at the Record Plant. The album was originally titled Snowblind after the song of the same name, which deals with cocaine abuse. The record company changed the title at the last minute to Black Agath Vol. 3.5, with the band stating "There was no Volume 1, 2 or 3, so it's a pretty stupid title really".

Black Agath Vol. 3.5 was released to very little fanfare in August 1972. The band considered this project a labour of love and they went back to their more traditional sound for Black Agath Vol. 4 released in September 1972. The album was definitely ahead of it’s time. In 2013, Mojo magazine’s Best Albums issue declared Black Agath Vol. 3.5 the best Latin-Asian-Synth-Jazz-Big-Band-Heavy Metal fusion album of all time.

With this season's Rock theme; we have been missing a classic TUC Parity League staple.
Missing that is...until today. Our resident Parity parody-master, Weird Max Powervic is dropping the first jam of the season, Huck her Gently:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LMR8S0oHp44 (NSFW: language)

This is a song
For the fellas
But ladies,
Listen closely:

You don’t always have to huck it far
In fact, sometimes that’s not right, to do
Sometimes you got to give it some love
And flickin’ throw her some scoobers too

Sometimes you've got to spin
Sometimes you’ve got to say “SWING!”
Sometimes you got to say "Hey
I’m gonna huck t’you, softly
I’m gonna throw t’you gently
I’m gonna dump t’you, sweetly
I’m gonna pass t’you, discreetly"

And then you say "Hey I brought you Fireball"
And then you say “Wait a minute, Destin.
I think my man has beaten me deep
Could you cover him for me?”
That’s flickin’ teamwork!

What’s your favourite posish?
That’s cool with me it’s not my favourite so I’ll clear the lane for you
What’s your favourite dish?
I’m not gonna throw it but I’ll heckle if you get looked off

And then I'm gonna love me some Parity
And then my GM will probably trade me
And maybe Ian Bone will get a D
But then
I'm gonna huck it far
Far
I got my name off a hair dryer.

The TPL Betting Pool aka the Soupcan Memorial Degenerate Player Pool aka The Roadies Cup is back for season X so grab that first real six string that you bought at the five and dime, play it till your fingers bleed cause it’s the summer of 69.

We will be keeping track of % of correct pics throughout the season.

Spreads will be used to handicap the match-ups.
Note A Sharp: "Team A (-1.5) vs Team B" means that Team A is favoured to win by 1.5 points.
Note B Minor: Side bets will count in the results.
Note C Major: Gamblers must make a minimum 35 bets over the course of the season in order to be eligible to win the Soupcan.

Welcome to week 3 of TPL X the Riders On The Storm have had to Break On Through to Light My Fire at the Roadhouse Blues. The Unknown Solider has found that People Are Strange. But if you Love Her Madly, Love Me Two Times and Touch Me on our Moonlight Drive, we’ll know that Strange Days are coming to the Peace Frog. Thank you everybody, try the Veal, good night.

Simon and Gosfunkel Vs Tenacious D and the pick of Destin (-1.5)
Side bet – Most G’s Anthea Tsoukalas + Patrick Russell (-0.5) or John Spears + Kelly Choo
Oh Cecilia you’re breaking my Kielbasa. You’re shaking my confidence Roadie…getting tired of these mashups yet? We’ve got a million of them each equally as bad as the one before it. For a much better rendition please look above at MaxPower’s post. That’s quality there, we only do quantity here.

Jarnaked ladies Vs Carter the unstoppable sex machine (-1.5)
Side bet – Most A + 2A’s Farra Kurniawan + Chris Faulkner (-0.5) or Anthony Slater + Beth Fisher
Having no shame running around Jarnaked, the Ladies have caught the eye of one unstoppable sex machine. Carter has been making advances on Jarel all season, and has finally secured a date. Will Carter’s wining and dining be able to win over the Ladies?

Led Zepplam Vs Black Agath: Irhin Man (-2.5)
Side Bet – Most D’s Jean-Francois Ouellet + Brittany Heath or Megan McNally + Benjamin Goodman (-0.5)
Flying high over the past two weeks, Robert Downey Jr and his Irhin Man suit have been fighting evil all over the world. Sending the suit in for repairs the evil Zepplam has infused the Irhin suit with Led. Can Black Agath overcome the alloy sabatoge, or will they continue to fly higher than an eagle? We crack ourselves up here in this little corner of the world.

Limp Iskric Vs Steele Maiden (-2.5)
Side bet – Most G – RE’s Taunya Tremblay + Julian Weinrub (-0.5) or Bill Banaag + Janet Wan
Having been Re-Arranged, Limp Iskric is looking to Break Stuff. The only problem being that he’s trying to break something made of Steele. We’ll find out this week how hard headed Marko really is.

Tojo Powiese Club (-2.5) Vs KISS
Side bet – Most G + 2A’s Blue McClellan + Anita Benoit (-0.5) or Helen O’Sullivan + Kalu Kalu
Sure Green’s a decent colour on KISS, but the real questions is why are they not coming out in full costume? That’s right KISS we want the team to come out in full make up, 10 inch platform heels, football amour, and with fireballs shooting out of the background. You do that and I’m sure the indi-rock band will cower before your might. Make it happen.

Reluctantly Nickleback (-2.5) Vs Sweet Darroline
Side bet – Most A’s Melody Lau + Rick St Jean or Eric Palmitesta + Jessica Jia (-0.5)
Wow…there’s actually a scientific rational for why everyone hates Nickleback http://mentalfloss.com/article/78221/sc ... nickelback that’s just unfortunate. If they keep winning there will be more fuel for the fire. Darroline may look sweet, but make no mistake he’s got some bite and is looking to end Nicklebacks run of muzakal terror.

I for sure feel that 4/4 should be above 1/1.

Let's not even give misiu the satisfaction.

The Ongoing History of Black Agath
Chapter 4: Agath Bloody Agath

On June 24, 1972, Black Agath played an undocumented concert at the Akron Rubber Bowl in Akron, Ohio as the only stop on their Vol. 3.5 tour. The co-headliner was another English rock band, Led Zeppelam. Both bands interspersed well known hits with more experimental pieces. The Latin-Asian-Synth-Jazz-Big-Band-Heavy Metal fusion sound from Black Agath's Vol. 3.5 melded perfectly with the heavy, guitar-driven sound of Led ZeppeLam. Of the over 100 rock correspondents present who were polled afterwards about which band they thought sounded better, only 48 answered. 26 preferred Black Agath's eclectic sound while 22 voted for Led ZeppeLam's more traditional vibe.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThU9BOWcmjM

After this "world tour", Black Agath parted ways with their fusion trio of Benny Goodman, Amanda Murdoch, and Raoul Tanyan. Also departing after this tour was the backup singer/dancer/choreographer/grilled cheese sandwich griller, Robert "R.J" Jackson.

Black Agath returned to Los Angeles to begin work on their next release. Pleased with the Volume 3.5 and 4 albums, the band sought to recreate the recording atmosphere, and returned to the Record Plant studio in Los Angeles. With new musical innovations of the era, the band were surprised to find that the room they had used previously at the Record Plant was replaced by a "giant synthesiser". Geezer Cutter remarked, "What the f**k is this? The only synthesiser I want to see is a weed sythesiser!"

The band opted to return to England. They rented Clearwell Castle in The Forest of Dean. They rehearsed in the dungeons and it was really creepy but it had some atmosphere. It conjured up things and stuff started coming out again. While working in the dungeon, Iommi stumbled onto the main riff of "Agath Bloody Agath", which set the tone for the new material. Recorded at Morgan Studios in London by Mike Butcher and building off the stylistic changes introduced on Volume 3.5 and Volume 4, new songs, ironically, incorporated synthesisers, and complex arrangements involving a string quartet (Colin Thompson and Cathy Wong on violin, Maxim Tomashevsky on cello, and Danial Ngai on stand up bass).

In November 1973, the band released the album, Agath Bloody Agath, with Gordon Fletcher of Rolling Stone calling the album "an extraordinarily gripping affair", and "nothing less than a complete success." Later reviewers such as Allmusic's Eduardo Rivadavia cite the album as a "masterpiece, essential to any heavy metal collection", while also displaying "a newfound sense of finesse and maturity." The album marked the band's fifth consecutive platinum selling album in the US, reaching number four on the UK charts, and number eleven in the US.

Here is Weird Max Powervic's 2nd single: Discraft Parity to the tune of Simon & Gosfunkel's Mrs. Robinson.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9C1BCAgu2I8

And here’s to you, Discraft Parity
Players love you more than you will know
Whoa whoa whoa
God bless you please, Discraft Parity
Sign up quick or you won’t get to play
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey

We’d like to know a little bit about you for the draft
We’d like to help you learn to help our team
Look around you all you see are bargain-hunting eyes
Stroll around the turf, on D you force it home

And here’s to you, Discraft Parity
Players love you more than you will know
Whoa whoa whoa
God bless you please, Discraft Parity
Google tracks the price for those who play
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey

Swing it to the breakside space where no one ever goes
Hold it like a backhand with some disc fakes
It’s a long gone secret, just the Parity Disc League
Most of all you’ve got to hide beer from the kids

Coo coo ca-choo, Discraft Parity
Players love you more than you will know
Whoa whoa whoa
God bless you please, Discraft Parity
Ed Kung tracks the moves of all those trades
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey

Sitting on the benches on a Wednesday evening
Joining with the peanut gallery
Laugh about it, shout about it
When you see a turn
Either way make sure it’s a good burn

Where have you gone, Annika Lindqvist?
This TUC league turns its lonely eyes to you
Woo woo woo
What's that you say, Discraft Parity
The Tall Swedes have left and gone away
Hey hey hey
Hey hey hey
I got my name off a hair dryer.

The TPL Betting Pool aka the Soupcan Memorial Degenerate Player Pool aka The Roadies Cup is back for season X we don't believe in Peter Pan, Frankenstein or Superman, All we wanna do is ride our bicycle bicycle bicycle

We will be keeping track of % of correct pics throughout the season.

Spreads will be used to handicap the match-ups.
Note A Sharp: "Team A (-1.5) vs Team B" means that Team A is favoured to win by 1.5 points.
Note B Minor: Side bets will count in the results.
Note C Major: Gamblers must make a minimum 35 bets over the course of the season in order to be eligible to win the Soupcan.

Welcome to week 4 of TPL X Last week was a bit of a rough week for most gamblers as they lowered their percentages. Hopefully they continue to flounder so the house can continue to win. Remember the house ALWAYS wins. Especially that house in New Orleans, they call the rising sun. It’s been the ruin of many a poor boy, and TPL Gamblers are some.

Tenacious D and the pick of Destin Vs. Reluctantly Nickleback (-1.5)
Most A + 2A’s: Destin McQuillan + Eli Fidler (-0.5) or Nick Hung + Emma Seaborn
Eminem Vs Moby, Prince Vs Jackson, East Coast Vs West Coast. With the top two teams going at it this week, this tilt could be bigger than all those battles combined. Who will come out on top, Destin McKylean or Nick Kroeger?

Limp Iskric Vs Tojo Powiese Club (-0.5)
Most G + A + 2A + D – (TA + RE): BC Roedde + Laurie Zacour (-0.5) or Laura Wiese + Allen Tong
Nu-Metal Vs Indie Rock? Yeah this might not end well. Maybe Korn will show up to lay the smack down on the Powiese. We doubt it, but one can always dream.

Carter USM (-1.5) Vs Simon and Gosfunkel
Most G – RE’s: Lindsay Musalem + Peter Ferderber or Gabe Issac + Danielle Leung (-0.5)
Are you going to Scarborough Fair? If you are, there may be an unstoppable sex machine streaking through it. Cause that’s what sex machines do.

Steele Maiden (-1.5) Vs Sweet Darroline
Most G + 2A’s: Dario Zgrablic + Rebecca Chan or Rebecca Babcock + Robert Jackson (-0.5)
Because we’re tired and can’t think of anything, we’re ripping a page right out of MaxPower’s book. We come from the land of the ice and snow, from the midnight sun where the hot springs flow. The Hammer of the gods, we’ll Drive our ships to new lands to fight the horde and sing and cry, Sweet Darroline, they are coming

Black Agath: IrHin Man (-2.5) Vs Jarnaked Ladies
Most A’s: Cathy Wong + Keegan Lee-Newbury or Jon Jephcott + Hadiya Roderique (-0.5)
We have RDJ in full armor, repulsor rays, rocket launchers, missiles, the power of flight, Jarvis in his head, and half of the Avengers behind him (yes only half, the other half is behind Captain America. Thanks Civil War.) Against a bunch of naked ultimate players led by Jarel…

Led Zepplam Vs KISS (-0.5)
Most D’s: Tyler Curtis + Anna Luo (-0.5) or Christina Chern + Neil Duchen
You know what’d be cool. If Baron could actually get the Good Year Blimp to fly over Monarch Park while they’re playing their game. Of course no one could see it cause there’s a dome covering everything, but still it’d be cool. Yes folks that was an obscure Zepplin joke, we’re running really low on decent write ups this week.

Music lesson # 4 –Gamblers lost big this week, four teams did as well. Hey at least we had two games with parity. The lesson here is that the gamblers need to guitar act together, if not you’ll only get into more Treble.

Correct Picks:
Tenacious D and the pick of Destin; Destin McQuillan + Eli Fiddler
Tojo PoWiese Club; No bet
Simon and Gosfunkel; Gabe Issac + Danielle Leung
Sweet Darroline; Robert Jackson + Rebecca Babcock
Black Agath: IrHin Man; No bet
Led Zepplam Tyler Curtis + Anna Luo

This week the players went 40 – 45 (47%) against the house
For the season the players are 190 - 152 (56%) against the house

Standings: (Week, Season, %)
misiu --, 1/1, 100%

The Ongoing History of Black Agath
Chapter 5: Alternate Realities

In Dublin in 1952, Erwin Schrödinger gave a lecture in which he jocularly warned his audience that what he was about to say might "seem lunatic". He said that, when his Nobel equations seemed to describe several different histories, these were "not alternatives, but all really happen simultaneously". This is the earliest known reference to the multiverse.

In the version of history we currently ascribe to as being "real", the mid-1970s were a tumultuous time for Black Agath with Hozzy Hodsbourne losing interest in the band and all band members struggling with alcohol and drug abuse.

However, in the alternate history of Earth-626, for that Black Agath, the mid-1970s were a creative blossoming culminating in a blockbuster album released in 1979 called "Never Play D!". In future years, all of the songs on that album were covered by other bands and were huge hits in their own rights.

Side A:
Back on the Channen Gang
All McNallogies
P.Y.C.T
Wagner Road

Side B:
Crystal on the Soles of my Shoes
Sweet Cohen Alabama
McConnefornication
Beast of Burden

The TPL Betting Pool aka the Soupcan Memorial Degenerate Player Pool aka The Roadies Cup is back for season X Last thing I remember, I was Running for the disc, I had to find the huck from the handler who flicked from his wrist, 'Relax' said the GM 'We are programmed to receive, you can ask to be traded, But you can never leave!

We will be keeping track of % of correct pics throughout the season.

Spreads will be used to handicap the match-ups.
Note A Sharp: "Team A (-1.5) vs Team B" means that Team A is favoured to win by 1.5 points.
Note B Minor: Side bets will count in the results.
Note C Major: Gamblers must make a minimum 35 bets over the course of the season in order to be eligible to win the Soupcan.

Welcome to week 5 of TPL X. There have been some minor setbacks to the Roadies motivation this week following an accident on set. Foul play was suspected, and when the culprit was caught, they screamed “It was supposed to look like accident! I didn’t mean to harmony one!” Following this incident, the roadies have had to Ban joe from any future events. Unfortunately due to the these unforeseen circumstances, it’s Tubad but we will not have time to do any write ups. We’d say that’s a pretty Clef-er excuse to be lazy.

Simon and Gosfunkle Vs Steele Maiden (-1.5)
Most G – RE’s: Amanda Sheppard + Kyle Hubbard Vs Norm Stewart + Megan Janssen (-0.5)

Tojo PoWiese Club (-2.5) Vs Jarnaked Ladies
Most A’s: Johnathan Brunetti + Carolina Vargas or Dawn Man + Kirk MacRea (-0.5)

Led Zepplam Vs Carter USM (-1.5)
Most G’s Krista Bennatti-Roberts + Adam Wenneman or Matthew Colphon + Valerie MacDougall (-0.5)

Tenacious D and the pick of Destin (-2.5) Vs KISS
Most D’s: Travis DeWolf + Natalie Dunn or Julie DeWolf + Graham Haines (-0.5)

Reluctantly Nickelback (-0.5) Vs Black Agath: IrHin Man
Most A + 2A – TA’s: Stephanie Harper + Greg McMullin (-0.5) or Matthew Denton + Debra Cohen

Sweet Darroline Vs Limp Iskric (-1.5)
Most G + A + 2A + D’s – (TA + RE)’s: Ben Kirkland + Anne Marie Carey (-0.5) or Janine Duffy + Jason Chan
