Wherein QuizMistress A Chats About So Many People
QuizMistressA

I'm baaaaaaack! I missed you guys last week! But I know Jeremy took good care of you (hopefully not so much so you don't want me back). ;-) I had another Geeks Who Drink work thing to take care of and it was fun but I was super happy to see you guys. It always feels like I've been gone for a month even when I just miss one quiz. Thankfully that doesn't happen very often.   Boom! What a night it was. I think that was in the top 5 biggest nights at the O'Neill Pub. Did you have a good time? I had a blast.   The top 3 teams took home cash because there were so many peeps! And there was a tie for 3rd place

Yay! My pets, milk, spooky things, spinach, the color periwinkle, Mads Mikkelsen, Bowie, The Dresden Dolls, hats, skulls, hearts, Star Trek, Star Wars, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, New Girl, Mads Mikkelsen, books, Patton Oswalt, Mads Mikkelsen movies, paper towels, horror movies, and long walks on the beach. Boo! Chocolate (most of the time), maraschino cherries, hate, people who talk to me while brushing their teeth, amaretto, the brown walls in my apartment, worms, and armpits.

A Richness of Embarrassments
Turducken Cupcake

Last night's quiz was rather competitive for a six-teamer, and it was essentially won at the buzzer.  I'll give early props to The Undecideables for snagging first, with a double fist-bump on my chest to THE SNACK THUNDER!!! for landing second. Tonight I've been tasked with sharing an embarrassing story about myself.  I've certainly got a wealth of stories to choose from, and there are some GREAT ones from my early pubescent years that I can share (I tore the back of my swim trunks at Wet N Wild and DIDN'T REALIZE IT for a good hour or so - walked around the park with my ass hanging out for who knows how long),

A shameless Nirvana plug!
Ponch

Benny… Benny Johnson.   So lemmee just start off tonight by saying that I fueckang love Nirvana.  I played a few Nirvana tunes on my playlist tonight.  Breed.  Dumb.  Aneurism. Let it be known that I think they’re probably the 2nd most important band of the 90’s.  The first being Phish.  I’ll splain’ why in a second.  But Nirvana, man.  They were effectively together for 4 years, put out three LP’s and changed rock and roll forever.  Kurt Cobain would have turned 50 years old this week.  And most people think he just had too much hit him, way too soon.  Very sad.

Mike grew up in Salem, Massachusetts to great acclaim. Though he owns a car - he bikes, runs, or rides the L most places in Chicago. Sometimes his hair is short... sometimes it's long. Among the amalgamation of irritations he maintains an outspoken disdain for are tattoos, libertarians, felines, and 5K's. He enjoys, however: vanilla ice cream, Star Trek, death metal, and pilsner beers. He plots somewhere on the northside and has many tattoos.

  Greetings quizzlings! A big ‘Thank You’ goes out to my stand-in scorekeeper, Jenni! You rocked it and I really did appreciate you stepping in like you did. It is official, our venue does qualify once again for a scorekeeper to assist me with the quiz. Caitlin will be joining us next week and then on after as our super-duper keeper of all things score related. She is a tremendous blast of awesome and boundless energy. I am thrilled to have her with us!   So, our bizarre video issue reared its ugly head again, and again your faithful Quizmaster was on task to produce the goods despite any technical maleficence. Hopefully we’ll be able to

That newest song by Justin Timberlake . . .
Christie B

Heeeeeeeeeey everyone! Another exciting Tuesday in the books! The night started o9ut strong when a regular quizzer arrived super early and volunteered to sharpen ALL of my pencils. Everyone at quiz owes her a big thank you, as they were starting to look a little dull. So anyways, it started off on a high note, and continued on that throughout the night. It was Ashley's birthday! I don't know Ashley personally, but that didn't stop me from encouraging the entire room to join in on the Happy Birthday sing when Cain, from the wonderful Bethany Public House wait staff, brought in a dessert with a candle on it. So we embarrassed her, but I hope she enjoyed it! You guys,

WhatashittyDM

Oh you wonderful Cottonwood people. Every week you come out and are the best part of my week. You are all amazing people, and you should know that. With the Valentine’s nonsense behind us, we let the regular quiz wash over us. We had a round that really rocked, the audio round turned up the lady energy, round 3 discussed Americans and their troubles with international travel, which I imagine are only more prescient. We talked smuggling for round four, nerds for round 5, and we discussed the white house and Morocco. All without mentioning the orange menace once. We wandered our way through the video round and brought it home with Rando 8. YOU WERE ALL AMAZING

We Dodgers Fans Are A Contentious Bunch
Cousin Chet

Okay, so here’s a quick explanation of why LA Dodgers fans can’t stand anyone suggest they have anything to do with San Francisco. That’s where the Giants play. We fucking hate the Giants. We have always hated the Giants. Back over 60 years ago when both teams were in New York, we hated them. In all the time both teams have been in California, we’ve hated them. We don’t even really remember why we hate them, but we fucking hate them. And they hate us too. To the point to even point out that a player we like used to play for the Giants, we will beat you up in the parking lot. We’re not proud of it, but it is something that happens. You know what?

Wait, The Olympics Were In Rio?
Kalkema

Hey guys! Back at it again after a one week Valentines related hiatus. it felt good to be back in the seat and Quizzing all you fine folk again. I promise to never leave you again... Unless I feel like it.   We learned a lot at Quiz tonight: I learned you can be an ologist that only studies Mars. I had a Southpark joke go right over my head. I learned that Madonna had an American Pie cover AND that Aretha Franklin had an Eleanor Rigby cover. We learned that no one watched the Olympics. I learned there had been a Metallica show in Antarctica We learned that almost every action film franchise sounds like a gun
[ ...more... ]

Everything I learned about what is great in life I first learned from my parents.


My comedy comes from my dad who is the funniest guy I know. He would throw on Monty Python

records when I was a kid and laugh until he cried. He also introduced me to some of comedy's most

renowned classics.

 

Python? Check!

Martin? Check!

Carlin? Check and check!

I could go on, but you get the point.

 

So, if you find yourself enjoying my personal brand of humor, just know I stole it from my father 

and the hoist up a cold one for Bruce. :)

 

From my mother I inherited a deep love of books and movies. I have a personal movie collection of

300+ and my mother's collection puts mine to shame. I can talk movies for hours and its all due to my

dear sweet mother who has a special place in her heart for giant animal movies. Lake Placid, anyone?

 

So thats me in a nutshell. I'm a born and raised, comedy loving, movie nerd with a helluva Marvel Comics

collection.

I returned from last week's absence to find six and 1.21 gigawatts worth of teams Tuesday night at Buck & Badger, all facing off for bragging rights and free beer. We had our steady Tuesday regular crowd but happy to report we had some out of towners who joined us and they were SUPER excited to be there. Rock on, quizzers from another mister. We’re glad you came.   It was a pretty competitive quiz, with the exception of Round 7 on punctuation which had a lot of teams throwing out their own punctuation-ladden @#$& and %*#$ when the answers got read.   A special cameo appearance was made by The Bootie Boot Girls who apparently

I am a frightened Brooklynite in the depths of Washington Heights. My backpack is heavy, my feet are sore, I am bad at navigating. Nonetheless, I found my way to Buddha Beer Bar, lured in by the warm glow and iPhone calendar alert telling me I was supposed to be there. We had 5 brave teams competing for all of the glory and fabulous prizes Buddha Beer Bar had to offer. And while Three's a Crowd dominated the bonus questions, the real point-winners were YOLO Minneapolis! and Bacon Is Life, who both excelled when it came to the random knowledge round, ending the evening in a dead tie for first place.

Hey Party People, DOG DAZE: Holy Cow! We’re a hit at Payette Brewing Tap House. And not just for the human kind but for the canine as well. Did you know that Payette is a dog friendly building? I didn’t. I hadn’t seen it posted anywhere but I guess with not food they can be dog friendly. We had a bunch of pooches at Quiz last night. (SEE PICS) The big question is do they count as an extra player? Are they the smartest one in the group? Will the answer ever be “whoof”? There’s a first time for everything so bring your brain and bring your well behaved doggie. Maybe they’ll be a guide dog to an answer. WELCOME

Punctuation! It's what’s for Dinner!
Jodi

Since last week was Valentine’s Day – we had a quiet intimate Quiz. This week we are back to the comrade that is Creston Brewing’s GWD! We had 25 teams this week, including some new faces. I love how we are still seeing some new people – keep them coming! I am a grammar Nazi; in this day and age everyone uses shortened words or doesn’t know how to use an apostrophe properly. This week’s Round 7 was definitely one of the hardest rounds we have had. Who pays attention to punctuation in a movie title? Who knew that elementary school English class would come back to haunt everyone last night. The competition last night was insane! Taking First

Well, what a crazy fun ride it has been as your Quizminatrix at Club Café for the last year. There’s no place like hosting here, and our teams are intelligent, hilarious and beautiful. It was great to have some of our regulars show up for one last quiz. Also, I loved seeing some of my friends from the Boston Gay Men’s Chorus, who normally only come to Atomic Karaoke on Wednesday night. Two nights in a row together? I’ll take it. Our final audio round ever was a greatest hits of Club Café’s diva favorites of all time. Adele, Rihanna, Madge, Stevie Nicks, Gaga, just to name a few. All we need would be for Thunderpuss to throw them into a house blender

It's that time of year again- Girl Scout cookies are back and we are all simultaneously pleased and plagued with tummy aches from all the cookies. And even worse, our in house dealer came in fully prepared last night. I apologize for enabling all of you. Since I have been a long time fan of Girl Scout cookies- having both been a Girl Scout and leading a troop in the past, I thought I would give you my review on all of the cookies. Lets start with my favorites- Trefoils. Buttery shortbread is heaven itself, but in the shape of the Girl Scout logo- it's even better. So good. The best cookie by far, even better dipped in coffee. Next I am gonna

No Rocky Steps For Me
Gallifreak

It's' going to be a bit of a short blog this week kids because your hero has been struck down with some kind of plague I can only classify as being biblical in scope. All was well over the weekend while I was in Philadelphia for a work function. All was well Sunday night when I arrived back in San Antonio. All was still well when I got up Monday morning. Then after I'd been awake for about an hour I suddenly got achy, and feverish and nauseous and I felt as if a 500 pound sumo was parked on my chest. It was kind of amazing how quickly I went from feeling fine to being a complete and utter wreck. I managed to pull myself
