Nathen vs Lana FUNKQUEST

Number two seed Lana Nelson (Lana from Montana) takes on number four seed Nathen Aswell is this latest first round match in the Funkquest end of season playoffs.

Q1. Being a musician, Nathen had his questions selected for him in his regular season epsiode. It was hardly a surprise when the question was

"Which artist or singer did you mine along to as a teenager?"

A discussion about impressionists followed. (Obviously...)

Lana picked Barbara Streisand.

Q2. If you could go back in time, what would you teach people.

Nathen recounted a book from 1885 about a guy who left the busy bustling city and went to live in a tree. (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. I think this is an American term for nipple tassles....

Be sure you know what you are letting yourselves in for potential FUNKSTERS.

Q5. Where do you get your news from?

Nathen is a CBC listener and Lana uses a site called Newsy
