Turned On, Tuned In, Dropped From The Top Of The Golden Gate Bridge
Fap 5ive Fretty

Yeah, as evidenced by the title of this blog, I’m not a huge fan of hippies like the ones in our visual round last night. My dislike of hippies is probably entirely because I used to be one back in the 90’s. My unfortunate concessions to this lifestyle included but were not limited to: the [don’t say it, don’t say it] dreaded white-guy-in-dreadlocks look; dousing my poor body in patchouli oil in lieu of bathing; listening to questionable jam band “music” (ugh, calling that shit “music” is akin to calling a prison feeding tube filled with nominally nutrient sludge “a nice home cooked meal”), and an aversion to shoes, even

I Do Not Miss That Constellation Of Plastic
Meggan

I have a confession to make, my dear Portland Quizlings. I have lived in beautiful Portland, Oregon for exactly a year now, but I moved here from Los Angeles. I know, I know, this makes me evil incarnate in a lot of Portlanders eyes, but I can't help where my parents were born and raised! I've lived in many places in my life: Germany, Los Angeles, Long Beach, San Diego, New York, and now Portland. I love it here. I don't miss California at all, except for one thing: Disneyland. Oh my god, do I miss Disneyland. In one week I will be on a plane headed south, and I will spend all of August 1st wandering the Happiest Place On Earth with about 30 people for my family reunion. Round One:

Greetings and Salutations again from TJ Elliott's Restaurant in beautiful Bowie, MD. where all the geeks come out for quiz, treats and drinks every Saturday night at 8pm.

Exceptional turnout + lots of fun-loving participation + a healthy helping of adult libations = One helluva incredible night. *And now the jingle of the week - "Aqua Teen won't ever be cancelled,Aqua Teen won't be dismantled,Aqua Teen gon' be togetherAqua Teen gon' be FOREVER!

Remember, Remember, the 5th of....What Day Was the Alamo Again?
SirYon

So few of us remember. That’s probably because none of us were there when it happened. That I’m aware of. I’m talking about the Alamo, of course. It’s apparently a big deal in Texas. They don’t have much to boast about in Texas. Let’s let them have this one. It’s better than some initialed guy who randomly got shot 30 years ago on television. Also wasn’t alive for that. Sorry to rub my glittering youth in your faces. It happens.   Tonight’s quiz was very educational. We learned about wheat and surprisingly enough we discovered that talking about gluten makes some of those really touchy sensitive types break out in hives.

On a sweltering day in the final months of the Reagan administration, a human baby was discovered by a leopard in the middle of a cornfield somewhere outside Chicago. This baby grew up into a gangly assemblage of brain waves, taught itself to read questions into a microphone and type on a keyboard, and found a job.

 

By day, I go to class and do homework, by night I make subs and quiz people with random questions. I'm a real superhero. Oh yeah, and I absolutely adore all aspects of alliteration. Too bad that never really comes up in the quizzes. Maybe I'll go suggest a round...

 

Drink responsibly and keep your minds open, y'all.

Hey there, Pub Quiz Players!   Some were missing. Some couldn’t stay the entire quiz. Some showed up halfway through. No matter. Hopefully, everyone had a good time playing our pub quiz last night at Sporting Life Bar.   TIDBITS ABOUT THE QUIZ:   If you are ever in Chicago, try getting a reservation and checking out El Ideas, my step-brother’s restaurant.   A long, long, looooooooong time ago, I played soccer. Mostly, I was a fullback, but every once in a while, they would move me to midfielder. I guess what I am saying is I

The quizzers rock, the staff kicks ass, the food is amaze-balls and the drinks are heavenly. (For a lifelong atheist, this is high praise... ;) We had some damned funny incorrect answers last night, especially reading that the intro to Mr. Wizards world sounded like a porno... Think about that one for a moment. Savor the awkward. You're welcome.  The quiz itself was fun to read. I only mispronounced things about 8 times, to the enjoyment of the room at large. (Zit-gyst?

Thank You Rob Thomas!

Man it's a hot one... like seven inches from the midday sun.   Seriously, it was hot last night.  Was it hot everywhere or just up by my table?  I was dying... not just from the heat but also from the fact that 19 TEAMS showed up for my debut Quiz Master night.  I mean, Holy Moley!!!!  I was expecting something closer to 10, so I was blown away by the turn out.  I was also frantically trying to keep with all that grading!  But keep it coming... I would love to see Saturday nights start averaging 20 teams!   There were some great teams last night, including Quiz Master Ian whom I took this location from.

Our Barman Sings Led Zeppelin, He's Cooler Than Yours

Heya Geeks! Great time last night at Geeks Who Drink. The San Francisco did have the Holly Holm fight on, so one of the questions did read basically like this: “Which city is named after a fiery mythical TAKE HER DOWN HOME GIRL WIPE THAT SMUG GRIN OFF HER FACE. . . named after a fiery mythical bird.” She's from my home state. Gotta' support the locals, ya' know? Confession time, here's what I got: It took me like, a solid five minutes to look at “Gluten Tag,” and realize it was supposed to be pronounced Gloo-ten Tayg.

QM Conrad's First Solo Adventure
QM Conrad S

Overall, my first solo-hosting adventure was a success. I joked that we were meeting as a support group of Geeks who didn’t win the raffle for badges to Comic-Con. Even though many of our regulars were at Con in San Diego, we had a good turnout. Many people were frustrated by the ‘They’re both mighty, alright’ round focused on authors who had fought in war. I did enjoy looking up after each question to get nastier and nastier glares from the quiz participants. I’ll take this opportunity to plug the email list – where subscribers can get some of the topics ahead of time and study the topic before Quiz. The bounty continues to be alive. Allow

My geek-dom started at a young age with an (un)healthy fascination with Star Wars. That was the beginning of the end. In middle school, I was a member of the group of kids that actually played AD&D in the library during lunch. Current obsessions include Star Wars (still), Game of Thrones, John Williams and politics. I'm local to South Orange County: I grew up in San Clemente and now live in San Juan Capistrano with my wife (Erin) and son (Gavin).

How the time has flown
Weapon Z

You’ll have to excuse the tone of this blog.  Most of the time, I try to keep it light and humorous, but this time around, I’m feeling a little sentimental.  Time sure does fly.  I can hardly even believe it myself.  It has been one year since the first time I’ve taken the microphone over on Saturday nights at Krazy Karls.  One year.  With me behind the mic every single week.  51 weeks with me seems like punishment.  (Ok, so we missed a week back in February when we were canceled because of Geek Bowl.) Geeks Who Drink, and more importantly, everyone at Krazy Karls, staff and patrons alike have become like family to me.

Quizmaster Zach is an avid fan of Rush: the Holy Triumvirate, and spends the majority of his free time watching irreverent comedies such as Portlandia, Trailer Park Boys and It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. When he is away from the television he plays ice hockey (poorly), hosts quiz (poorly) and eats food (poorly). To be honest, QM Zach does most things poorly but that's easily overlooked because he is so good looking. The only thing he is good at is doing a karaoke version of YYZ. You can see QM Zach live and in person and judge him accordingly every Saturday night at 8:00 PM at Krazy Karls pizza. Just don't look directly into his eyes. You might never be able to look away.

Hey there, quizzers!What a great night! It was a little on the muggy side but we had a great time anyway.We started with eight questions on Big Cities, and while Austin didn't QUITE make the cut, Houston, San Antonio, and even Dallas showed up in the round.Then we had a music round that was all songs that are about things happening over and over again. Like Here I Go Again, and Deja Vu! Easy Peasy.For Round 3, we had a 50/50 round on actors who are in Sharknado 4. Some of those answer may have surprised you!Then in Round 4, I was all, "Gluten Tag!" Because the round was about wheat, playground games, and German phrases. It turns out

Follow Ted Cruz’s Advice: Vote Your Conscious

Hey there quizzers! We had another great Saturday night (alright) at Darcy’s. We learned some fun things, we listened to some great tunes, but most importantly, we made fun of Republicans. Coming off of the RNC in Cleveland, we had some fancy team names that reflected on the week we’ve had. We had a strong showing from Growing Up a Poor Black Woman - By Melania Trump and contemplated Ted Cruz’s advice to Vote Your Conscious. I can only hope that next week, the DNC in Philadelphia will inspire some equally creative team names. But

Pop-punk Roots Vol 2: Nostalgia Albums
DJ ROB ROB

Last week, I talked about Blink-182's new album California, and how I had originally planned to talk about a similar topic: nostalgia music that I listened to in my youth that still sticks with me today. Well now, that blog has come. Listening to Blink has caused me to go down quite a rabbit hole of amazing music. To be honest, I listen to a lot of this stuff to this day, which I can go into more detail with each album. My taste in music has changed dramatically, but here's a few albums that I listen to probably once a month, sometimes even more. Disclaimer: don't judge me. I was a bit of a punk emo

Stick It In Cape Canaveral Again
Geoff (like Chaucer)

I had a long, dull week this time around.  All of the computers worked, and the quizzes were by the book.  Here is your quiz recap: Seven teams stepped up tonight to test their brains against my questions.  The questions splayed themselves like target sheets on a firing range - the eight largest American cities, Sharknado 4, fictional hippies, playground games, writers in wars, and Bob's Burgers all received at least one bull's eye each. Tonight's highest score belonged to Ebony & Ivory; they scored 80 points.  There was a tie between Smart Fuckers and Team Excelsior (77 points each) at the end of the

GEEKS.  I enjoy role-playing games, listening to music, and video games.  Reddit is my bread and butter.  I know a lot about a lot of things.

WHO.  Military veteran, computer expert.  Young at heart, sarcastic to a fault, and funny.  I hope.

DRINK.  I don't drink often, but when I do, it's usually a beer.  I drink shots on special occasions only.  I am known to sing karaoke at times.

Making America Drunk Again!

Remember the good ol' days, when one could have a beer or two at lunch?  When Happy Hour meant getting really happy right after work?  I miss those days... Nevertheless, we hang out at a brewery, and that means consumption of beer is not only ok, but expected!  Yeah beer! We had eight awesome teams, but the super power team formed by Veronica, Matthew, Patrick and Gus was just too powerful for all the competition.  Nice job, Are We Best Friends Now?  Pebble & Friends also had a fine showing for 2nd. Unfortunately, we did not have a tie breaker round, so I did not get to bust out my new exciting toy that
