Beware of Brain Cloud
Patsquatch

Some nights after quiz I sit down and blaze through the blog. Other nights, like tonight I just stare at the screen and have no idea what to write about. I could bitch about Valentine’s day being stupid or I could talk about how badass Deadpool looks but I think on a night like tonight, I am going to just recap and call it a night. It was a pretty rough night for some teams tonight although there were some impressive late game surges thanks to round six being a 16 point round. Round 2 was kind of weird given that teams had to name either the band or solo act that performed the song. ITunes went out of its way to be a dick which made it all weird. No one knew that the song by

The Blue Screen Of Death
OwenBallard

Ladies and gentlemen of Fuzzy’s Tacos, I must say that it was an honor hosting trivia for you even though it was, by a wide margin, the worst experience in my long trivia hosting career dating all the way back to the summer of 2013.This experience might have been the wake-up call that I needed to finally migrate my 150 gigs of music to my new computer. The only thing that made the night slightly less agonizing was when I got to reminisce about living in Austin with the beautiful bartender. We had a total of 9 teams play the quiz tonight but 4 of the teams only played a few rounds. Our third place team was JOHN IS DEAD TO US who finished with a final score of 70 points. JOHN IS

I like to consider myself a trivia enthusist/expert, especially with regards to music, Star Wars and the Simpsons (the latter two of the three I know more about than I do about anything). 

Come down to The Den Campus Pub on Wednesday at 7:30 for marvelous prizes, gift cards, and your chance to win some free drinks.

Zoolander 2!!! What? Is there another movie coming out this week?
ShadCampbell

DEADPOOL!!!  Ok I’m done.  I figured we would have a fraction of the teams we did because of Deadpool and…well, Zoolander 2.  I do want to see Zoolander, but I can wait for it to stream.  Now Deadpool…I am going to see as soon as I can.  No spoilers people, please, it maybe a week or so before I can see it.   We started the night out with Duh!!!, enough said.  Round 2 had to be the easiest in a while.  We even gave you a choice on the artist.  Pick one.  Round 3 was another round that gave you a 50 % chance, it was all about US Geography.  Before we took a break there was a round on keys, wallets and

First Anniversary
Gallifreak

Tonight marked our first anniversary quiz at Sherlock's. That's right! It's actually been an entire year already. I am thankful for every week that they've let me play in their sandbox. They are a fantastic staff that always makes us feel welcome. I look forward to every quiz, each and every week. It was especially nice to see a team of some of my longest running quizzers. On various teams and combinations, Farelle, Brian, Mitch and Amanda have quizzed with me off an on for pretty much the entirety of the 5.5 years I've been at this. So yeah, it was a wonderful surprise when they came out to quiz tonight. We had a fun round tonight involving nudity. Pretty

McScuse Me, Bitch?! If you haven’t seen this video, you need to watch it now. But in the meantime, so tonight, I pulled into the Greenhouse Bar parking lot, and was surprised to see that there were lots of spaces to park in. Normally, by the time I get there, I sort of have to creatively “make” a space for myself. But not tonight. And so, I thought to myself, “maybe tonight will be a slow night…” Famous last words. As it turned out, we had the most teams EVER participating tonight. A whopping total of 23 groups of friends, loved ones, and beer lovers fought it out to be the

Spoiler Alerts Involving Alex Trebek
Troy D.

Most of y'all who follow my GWD blogs (all 1 of you, and I'm looking at you, Chelsea, at GWD HQ) know that I'm a game show fanatic - so in honor of this week's Round 5 (entitled Spoiler Alert!), let me tell you about a different set of spoilers. The Spoilers were the "bonus round" on a game show called Double Dare back in the 70's.  Not the one with the Sundae Slide; this was ten years earlier and involved Alex Trebek with his trademark afro and 'stache.  The main game premise was to answer a question then dare your opponent to answer it.  In the

Vets Night
Andy

This week was vintage (mostly) King Harbor Brewing Company quiz night. What do I mean by that? I mean that it was veteran team after veteran team.  We had teams that have been quizzing for the better part of a year or more team-up with each other to form the team with by far the best team name of the night (inspired by a round #1 question… I hope), Trust me, Uranus Is Not Part of a Special Club. Round #2 was also vintage KHB. With scores of 4/16, 6/16, 7/16, I was taken right back to the early days of our quaint little pub quiz. You remember

The Susanturpin

Many thanks to my boyfriend for the blog title. He's one of a kind, lemme tell ya. Did you know that the song “Killing Me Softly”, originally by Roberta Flack, was supposedly written about Don McLean? I’m not sure if it’s actually even true or not, but it’s a fact I like to spout off whenever I hear the song. And, of course, every time I think of Don McLean, I think about "American Pie", which makes me think of the Weird Al parody "The Saga Begins". My, my, this here Anakin guy... I sat down to write this blog this evening with a pretty severe case of writer’s block. Naturally, the only thing that’s coming to me to write about

Sriracha Cupcakes
Lady Thunderfunk

Here are the stats, champions: In a game with three 16-point rounds and 104 possible points, our top score was 92 and the average of all teams was 71.12.  Even our lowest scoring team this week would have placed 7th (of 11) last week. Color me impressed! Top that, Johnny's Navajo Hogan.   Recently I learned there's such a thing as seasonal allergies for winter. Apparently the complete lack of common irritants like pollen in the air turns my face into a faucet. I had tears streaming waiting for the bus this morning, and not because I was depressed about taking the bus to work. It was super weird. Not least of all because I don't get allergies any other time.

Could You Repeat Number [REDACTED]?
RevTrev

First and foremost: Go Broncos. Thank you all for coming out tonight!  We had queens, nudity, poorly pronounced South American countries, and more middle fingers headed my way than I give out on my drive home!  We also had Walter from Avery giving us free cozies, hats, glasses and pints of India Pale Ale all night!  Huzzah! We do this every Thursday night, but if you're itching for something bigger, check out Geek Bowl X coming up in Denver next Saturday! 200+ teams with $10,000 bucks on the line!  Don't miss it! See you all next week! -Trevor

Can still do the alphabet backwards when drunk, even when not handing out free beers for knowing things like Barbara Walters' cup size (which is 100% ungoogleable, in fact it will lead you right back here to this very web page). 

I'm skinny, blonde, and my reading glasses make me cross the line into dirty hipsterdom like Superman and Clark Kent, except instead of super powers and a journalism career I get an opinion about Radiohead and a headache while staring at computer screens.

Thank you all for coming out tonight! I think the entire world is pooped out from the Super Bowl and Mardi Gras, and now with the onset of Lent folks are pretending to be well behaved, not-alcoholic, go-to-bed early types. Thankfully I have nice full teams so who love to drink and can’t be bothered with giving up vices of substance. It was nice to see everyone’s smiling faces! Do check out the Geek Bowl thing. The tickets will be last minute, and you’ll pay a bit more, but come on. Totally worth it! I keep saying this, I say it on the mic, I say it on all my blogs on all my venues… EUGENE FUCKING MIRMAN!

Howdy! My name is Katie, I enjoy long walks on the beach, pasta, and Christmas lights in July. The first things people notice about me are my subtle sense of fashion and my typically reserved demeanor. I have a penchant for video games, with a fixation on SNES games of yore. I'm only 5'2", but I make up for it by wearing 4-6 inch platforms. I'm a HUGE Twilight fanboy-girl.

Disclaimer: Roughly 70% of the above is true. The other 40%... total fabrication and folly.

The One with the Dino-Hipster
Pax

Well, it started out easy and got surprisingly hard. Our usually unstoppable team, Flying Spaghetti Monsters, weren’t quite as on top of it without their noble patriarch to pick up the slack. But it was nice to take a break from winning for once to let some other people get that top prize for once.   Who would have thought so many of you would have seen Hot Tub Time Machine but not Titanic?  I think this is proof that I’m officially getting old because I did the old lady thing of noticing that and shaking my head as if I disapproved… like… as if Titanic

The challenges of being a gaymer couple.
Joshuay

I'm not going to lie, my little pokéballs. I've been a bit distracted this week. Why, you might ask? Because of Overwatch. I'm not generally the sort of ho who sells one service while promoting another, but this has been rather impactful. For those who don't know, it's a first-person shooter that's currently in beta. I work for the folks who make it, and it’s kind of beginning to eclipse my life. Aside from the work I'm doing on it, it's causing... domestic events. Because SOMEONE (Clancy) has a Macbook. So it's tough for him to play. But SOMEONE ELSE (me) built his own PC a few years ago, and has kept it steadily upgraded since. It's kind of a thing you have to do when

Hello Geeks!!!! Last night at the Brew Project was a little light on bodies, but that didn't change the level of fun. We had five groups last night, three returning regulars. Met a cool group of first timers, one of which used to live in Seattle - where I also used to live. So we had a cool chat after the quiz all about the things we love and miss about the Emerald City. While a few of the rounds were pretty challenging, everyone - on the whole - did pretty darn good.  Once again, I spend my Wednesday night hanging with fun people doing fun things in a fun place.

The One Where Me And My Girlfriend Came in Separate Cars
AdrianTrevino

Since 2016 began, there has not been a single normal day. Something has always been a little off, odd, or just a bit out there. Sometimes, things have seemed out of control or downright crazy, but then everything is different the next day. We've gone from feeling like there's a rut and not wanting to be doing the same thing every day, to every day being exceptionally different and strange and kind of wishing things would be, well, normal for a little while. At least then, my bank account and levels of sleep would be normal again. What is normal? Okay, this is starting to sound like the first day of a Psych 101 class.Lets get on with quiz related events:QM

OH GOSH, THERE'S SUPPOSED TO BE SOMETHING EXTREMELY FUNNY HERE, BUT I CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING FUNNY TO PUT HERE, OH GOSH OH GOSH, WHAT AM I DOING I CAN'T COMPUTER TODAY.

 

Anyways! I love QMing, it beats the living HELL out of my day job; I play guitar and absolutely love Death Metal, and I like wearing cuban shirts and smoking cigars and watching Star Trek. I also like making dumb jokes.  I tend to stay towards the middle of the road when it comes to... well, anything. I also do a lot of referential humor, so this only helps but serve that purpose. And the purpose of having a night to go to a bar to drink. Yes.

 

Well.

 

Good on 'ya.
