FunkQuest season one playoff Quarter Final between Tiffany Ann Beverlin and Heather Vickery.Bothe these ladies first round opponents were unavailable so this match up really was a battle of the walkovers.Being the lowest ranked Funkster (13) Heather got the ball rolling.Q1. What's the best way to end a conversation.Bit of a normalite question sneaked it's way in.Good answer from Heather - to ask a clarifying question. My answer - to sum things up and repeat things.Going to replace this question - so don't take any notice if you are looking to game the questions.Q2. Tiffany picked Westminster Bridge and got the magic wand question.Her magic wand would get rid of cancer - by visiting the supermarket.Heather was a little more subtle. It would force people to have a third party opinion before they blurt something out.Sounds a bit like mind control to me but it was a FUNKY answer.Q3. Heather picked the pencils and the question is "What was the last photograph you took?"Answer - a tea party and the discussion then moved to real tea leaves or tea bags.Tiffany took a picture of a cat... riiight...Q4. Tiffany picked the hand in the air (like you just don't care).Answering and playing with phones at the dinner table.Again - this is a normalite question that has crept in. The answer is an obvious NO.Q5. Heather picked the jars of jam and the question is "What outdoor activity would you like to try?"Heather picked hot air ballooning and Tiffany picked some kind of massage with men in robes. Heather went for that also...

Ben got the magic wand question.He would get his old dog back and Cathy would get her visa for permanent residence in Australia sorted.Q3. Q4. Ben picked the records and the question is "What really needs to be modernised?"His answer was the US tax system and Cathy's answer was LA international airport.Q5. The question is "Who would you pay money to see?Cathy picked Elizabeth Gilbert and Ben picked the Dali LamaBeing the lower ranked Funkster, Cathy went first.Q1.

(What would he think now...)Lana talked about nutrition and food.Q3. The runnning shoes. When did you last play a board game or cards?Lana played cards at christmas and Nathen talked about backgammon.(Editors note: It is funny how old school pursuits that cross generations are low tech...)Q4. What is the most ridiculous thing you have bought?I think I may have misheard this on the original episode. (FUNKQUEST goes FAST...) But Lana shared her experience of buying pasties.

Bryan chose insurance. Bryan Falchuk insurace guru.Q2. Bryan chose the Thames/London scene and with his magic wand - he would want a new body. Very self centred...Leana, on the other hand would chose to end world hunger. (So long as she had somewhere suitable to stand - and a cape...)Q3. Leana picked the roller skate and I suspect not for the first time, the mullet cropped up.A picture of ex England footballer Chris Waddle is below.Q4. Bryan picked the yellow submarine. The most expensive thing you have broken.Bryan thought he had disabled the whole broadcast set up of the Boston Redsox.Leana drove a brand new white car down a freshly tarmac laid road.Q5.

Makes you confront stupid mistakes and laugh at them amongst friends.Cathy would like to try sky diving, Dana rock climbing. Yes "sport climbing" is in the Olympics in Tokyo later in 2020.

Leana picked the hippy chicks and the question is "What was the last photo you took?"A photo of a photo on a phone of a friends cat.And that's the thing. Previously, photos had a currency, a value.

Bryan Falchuk lives one day at a time. And working out how he can do what he wants to do and achieve his goals while looking after his family is a challenge for all of us.Q1. Bryan picked the VW camper van and the question is "What brand are you most loyal to?"Bryan said Apple or Garmin BUT did indicate that he isn't a total slave. When his Garmin watch broke, he couldn't get on with Apple.I suggested that large corporations being in a space that they just felt they needed to.First Apple computer 1976 so 76 points scored.Q2. Bryan knew the football shirt and so scored a bonus point. Total 77.Bryan chose the phone and the question is "What was your most recent lie?"Bryan recounted shooting a video BEFORE his book was published saying that it was a best seller.This is the world today. Best selling...But what category ? In paddleboard yoga?I recently finished a book by Tyler Hamilton who was one of Lance Armstrong's main wing men.In a memorable passage, he recounts that if you look carefull at all cyclists on the podium from that era, you will see expressions of fear.Fear that they are going to get caught and found out. Because they are living a lie.Q4. Bryan chose the car and the question is "What from the present will withstand the test of time?"Bryan answered mindfullness and plant based eating.Do we need to be far down a road before we stop and make changes?The political system in western cultures is on the way to being broken - how far down the road will we need to go before we make changes?Their was no sign saying "Industrial Revolution - For 2 weeks only" - people living through it had no idea.89 points (French Revolution 1789) - Total 209Bryan correctly identified George Harrison. First person (I think) to get both bonus points on offer.Total 210Q5. Bryan chose George Harrison and the question is "When was the last time you had a new lease of life?"Bryan told us a bit of his back story and I can't quite make out how we ended at 274 points but we did.
In this Funky Thinkers with Vancouver based musician and speaker, Nathen Aswell, the rock group XTC how musicians make money in the days of YouTube and spotify and the comino.Being a musician, I told Nathen that I would be picking all the icons for him.He agreed and his pre game reconnaissance led him to that conclusion also.Q1. Nathen picked the cassette tape and the question is "Tell us about your record and tape collection when you were younger"Nathen mentioned a couple of artists that were before my time and then the English rock group XTC. Apparently they don't tour anymore despite the glut of throwback artists that are touring.I guessed that "Making plans for Nigel" by XTC was 1979 so Nathen scored 79 points. Good start.Nathen knew the Soviet Union soccer short so scored an extra bonus point. Total 80.Q2. Nathen picked the LP record and the question is "How many cards did you get on your last birthday?"A solid discussion about the merits of real life birthday cards vs birthday wishes on Facebook and other social media.Nathen told me before hand that he had recently celebrated his birthday and replied to every single person who wished him a happy Facebook birthday.His score increased to 140. Work out how old he is.Total 140Q3. Nathen picked the radiogram and the question is "When you are old, what do you think children will ask you to tell stories about?"Nathen answers MUSIC. Good discussion about how musicians can make money in the age of YouTube and spotify.Nathen indicated that he had been a musician for 46 years. 46 points scored.Total 186.Q4. Nathen picked the girl playing the guitar and the question is "Who do you go out of your way to be nice to?"Nathen replied "everyone" Good answer. Rounded up to 200 (to make it easy for me to add up).I didn't want to risk Nathen being embarrassed by not know George Harrison. (Like you sometimes do when you are under pressure) so I awarded the point.Total 201.Q5. Nathen picked George and the question is "When was the last time you had a new lease of life?"Nathen told us about his recent trip to walk the comino trail in Spain.Off mic, he had earlier told me that a good rule of thumb was to only carry 10% of your bodyweight in you pack.When he got home, he weighed his pack and realised he was at 27%. And used this as a sign that he needed to minimalise his life.Powerful lesson.The comino trail is 779 kilometres long so 79 points scored.Total 280. Very solid score and onto third in the leaderboard.Nathen Aswell is post season playoff bound....
Dana Pharant is a TWO time FUNKY THINKER. As well as being the only Dana Pharant in the world, she is a speaker and coach.Q1. Dana picked the cassette tape and the question is "Tell us about your record and tape collection when you were younger."It is remarkable that in the days of cassette recorders, virtually every teenager around the world was sat rewinding cassettes with pencils and pens.It is a wonder the single use battery ever took off.Because Pink Floyd were the first number one of the 1980's - 80 points scored.Q2. Dana knew that the shirt was a football shirt and probably european. 3/4 point bonus scored.Dana picked the telephone and the question is "Tell us about your most recent lie"Most people on the show don't tell lies - so we may have to change this question. 20 points only scored.Total 100 3/4Q3. Dana picked the London (red) bus and the question is "How ambitious are you really?" It is powerful stuff when a professional speaker indicates that they rate themselves as 6/10 on the ambition scale.Why I asked?Because Dana admits she doesn't follow up as much as is possible and that this could bump it up to an 8/10.If there is anyone reading, listening or watching who is an AUTHORITY on follow up. Please get in touch so we can have you on the show to discuss this further.6/10 on ambition. 6 points scored.Bit of a sloppy answer as far as Funk points are concerned.Q4. Dana picked the girl playing the guitar and the question is "Who do you go out of your way to be nice to?"Dana said her inner circle of friends. A continuation of the discussion from question 2 about do you be honest with someone or tell them a lie not to hurt their feelings?Dana did not know who George Harrison was.Q5. Dana picked the roller skates and the question is "What got ruined because it became popular?"(Good answer this).Dana said personal development.Funky Thinkers view this as just more gurus to follow and just another industry.63 points scored.Total 263.Solid answers all the way through.Let down only by the low scoring 6 on the "How ambitious are you question?"This really could have challenged the leaderboard with a better score.Good for the middle rankings of the Funkquest leaderboard and probably good enough for the end of season playoffs.
Jeremy Roadruck - the Kung Fu guy - believes that you should actually have face to face conversations with your kids. We had to get him on the show.​What are the FUNKQUEST rules?Funkquest is a fun interactive online game that features five rounds. Each round consists of ONE FUNKY question.The player​ selects the icon which most tweaks their interest. Each Funky visual has a Funky question.The Funky insight is that the question may or may not be related to the icon.SO potential Funksters have to think on their feet to score points. Points are awarded by me for FUNKY answers...What's so good about FUNKQUEST ​?​Funky Thinkers know that IDEAS only come from free-flowing CONVERSATION.Listening (without prejudice) to new ideas and speakers from outside your usual network truly qualifies as FUNKY.Each question has a strict time limit. So no multi-headed long and complicated self indulgent stories to endure. Just short punchy bite-sized truly Funky ideas, as we GET THE FUNK OUT!Jeremy jumped straight for George Harrison. Not so fast tiger - we had to head back to the top of the board.Q1. Jeremy picked the cassette tape and the question is "Tell us about your record and tape collection when you were younger"Jeremy told us about being a military child and having access to a wide range of country,folk and disco music in the 1970's.Jeremy scored 77 points because that was when Staying Alive was a big hit.Plus one in advance for George Harrison. Total 78Q2. Jeremy picked the space hopper. The question is "What is your secret talent?"Jeremy gave us a quick trip round his techniques of explaining things to people.8 points scored. Because that's is how old kids are.Total 86Q3. Jeremy picked the shoe.

(Quick discussion about what it is actually called). The question is "How do you judge a person?"Jeremy said that he doesn't judge - he evaluates.

Jeremy picked George Harrison (bonus point previously awarded) and the question is "When was the last time you had a new lease of life?"Jeremy told us how his daughter was born in 2014 weighing 1lb and the thought process that goes with taking things day by day. One hour at a time.Total 100 points.Total score 261 points.
Jac Morton owns Pear Drop Creative in Bradford, West Yorkshire. This is about an hour from where we live. Working mainly with Nort American Funksters, I jumped at the chance to work with a local...Warning - This episode features discussion of the city of Bradford past and present.Jac picked up two quick points, one for being the first person from West Yorkshire and one for being from West Yorkshire itself.Q1. Jac picked the hippie girls and the question is "What was the last picture you took?"The answer was of a halloween lanterns made for and with his kids. A discussion about what happens to photos nowadays.3 points scored. Total 5.Q2. Jac picked the space hopper and the question is "What's your secret talent?"Q3. Jac picked the London bus and the question is "How ambitious are you ? (really)"Q4. Jac picked the car. (We think it is a Ford Zephyr). The question is "What from the present will stand the test of time?"Q5. Jac picked the horse and cart and the question is "What things about the opposite sex most confuse you?"A solid score from Jac (which I may have added up wrong - but hey referees are human and they aren't bothered who wins right?).It is getting very jammed at the lower end of the leader board and it will need a good effort to break this log jam.
