August 5[edit]

Inevitable question[edit]

How many universities are there in New Zealand?--Shantavira|feed me 07:52, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

8: List of universities in New Zealand--SeizureDog 08:06, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

AngryLittleGirl: Airbo(u)rn(e)?[edit]

Question to those who have seen the "Gullible..."-video: What exactly does she mean by "airbo(u)rn(e)"? --Thick Peter 11:07, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

She is referring to Airborne Effervescent Health Formula. HYENASTE 12:46, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

Cowboy Bebop Movie Trailer[edit]

Can you give me the songs used in the trailer for the Cowboy Bebop movie? There's one song on there which is kind of heavy, and includes the words, 'Here we go!', but I don't know what the song is called. --86.128.200.186 10:38, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

The trailer in question, btw, can be found here. Someoneinmyheadbutit'snotme 17:21, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

The song that opens and closes the trailer is called "Ask DNA." The middle one with the character names is called "Tank" and also is the show's opening song. I don't know what the metal-rock one is near the end, though---sorry!

TMA/Star Child mythology?[edit]

I honestly feel quite stupid for asking this question, but I'm compelled to... I recently watched 2001: A Space Odyssey and was baffled by the whole idea of TMA-2 turning Bowman into a Star Child. I thought there MUST be people who have created some kind of mythology around that, trying to explain exactly what the TMA's are, what a Star Child is and so on. Does the book go more into detail, or are there any "TMA societies" that might have any "information"? Jack Daw 20:23, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

It's been a while, but I do remember the book as going into a bit more detail about that part of the story. Recury 13:45, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

Tony and Academy awards[edit]

In Yul Brynner, it states that "Brynner is one of only seven people who have won both a Tony Award and an Academy Award for the same role." Who are the other six? -- SGBailey 20:36, 5 August 2007 (UTC)

Great question:

Thanks - I've added this info to List of people who have won Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Awards -- SGBailey 08:38, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
You are welcome, and thanks for updating the article. I wonder, as a corollary to your question, whether anyone has won a Tony and Emmy, or an Emmy and Oscar for the same role? I'm not aware of anyone who has, the closest perhaps being Helen Mirren who won an Emmy for Elizabeth I and an Oscar for Elizabeth II. Rockpocket 20:42, 6 August 2007 (UTC)
In answer to the above, the closest I can think is Jose Ferrer, who won an Oscar and a Tony for playing Cyrano de Bergerac, but was only nominated for an Emmy.--Sethacus 15:19, 9 August 2007 (UTC)
