Notes on the questions

This is my first attempt at posting the questions from the previous night. Obviously, it didn't go as well as planned. I'm going to work on the formatting issues you see. Please bear with me.

Now, some instructions on how to do the rounds. For the most part, it's a straight-forward question-answer format, however there are some weird rounds:

Round 3: Match round
It's pretty self-explanatory. Take the items in column A and match them with the appropriate answers. In the future I will try to list them closer together. We'll see what happens.

Round 4: Bizarro World
This is a funky, yet fun round. In yesterday's case, I am giving you the antonyms (or approximate opposite words) of song titles. All the songs listed are linked somehow, either all on the same soundtrack, all by the same band, etc, etc.

Round 5: Dead or Canadian
Harking back to the olden, golden days of MTv, I borrowed the concept of this round from the old Remote Control game show. The clue given is a representative of one or the other category given in the title. In this week's case, the items are from either Harry Potter or J.R.R. Tolkien books. You'll get the hang of this one in further weeks.

Round 6: Picture round
Usually pictures of celebrities, sports figures, political figures, anyone who my quizzers might recognize (up to and including myself and my co-host).

Round 7: General Knowledge
The final round of the night is always double-points, and includes a tiebreaker. The tiebreaker question is usually a number that would be nearly impossible to know, such as 'what is the driving distance from the Globe Pub to Fenway Park?' We don't expect anyone to know the answer, but the closest guess wins the tiebreaker.

That's all for now. I hope you enjoy reading our questions, and let me know if you have any, yourselves.
