How Long Has It Been?
Charles

How long has it been?   So I guess I was gone to host the Nintendo Quiz a while back.  That was fun, a change of pace and a really fun theme to host a quiz on.  Then I got sucked into the vortex of the Penny Arcade Expo, dragging 30 video games up to Seattle.  Convention Time doesn't exist on the same scale as regular time, likely due to the incredible nerd-gravity that cons possess, so I'll estimate that I've been gone for at least several months.  While it was fun, it was also overwhelming and tiring, I guess

The Right to Die and Other Controversies
Robynne

Speaking of controversial issues, I cannot be the only one who was sorely disappointed on the day they realized “You Belong With Me” is not, in fact, about a high school lesbian crush. For the longest time I’d only kind of sort of listened to the lyrics in passing, and “She wears high heels, I wear sneakers, she’s cheer captain and I’m on the bleachers” just sounds way too much like a shy, nerdy girl secretly admiring the cool popular girl. I like that version of the song, the one that’s just vaguely half-formed in my head, far

Labor Day!

Happy Labor Day Weekend everyone, but especially to my quizzers at The Curtis Club!   I hope all of you have awesome plans, maybe BBQs and the like (thanks for the invites by the way! This was sarcasm! I had to mention that because this is text and you can't tell! Because it's text!)   Anyways! Congrats to The Piccadilly Twitz, who are still on track to finish second in this years Denver Rumble in the Quiz! Representing The Curtis Club, they were able to hold on to first place until the end, in a close one!   We had a new round type as well,

Geoff's Mom
Pystol

There was an emptiness accompanying the smell of melted cheese in the air tonight at Prospectors. People are preparing to depart from Denali to their next adventures and are holding on to Narnia for dear life. Thus, Geoff’s mom suddenly became important in Denali. From what I can tell, she is a super nice lady! She does people’s chores and always leaves a batch of cookies on the table when she goes! May as well call her “Felicia”. Underpaid Kitchen Staff went from last place at the end of the third round to take the $20 gift card trophy at the end of the quiz. Way to climb the ranks and beat all of our usual pub geeks!

I Wrote This Blog On The Megabus
The Crying Tygrr

So, this part I'm writing while trying frantically to pack (way too much) for Southern Decadence this weekend. This rest shall be written from the bus tomorrow morning/afternoon. Hopefully their WiFi is strong enough.

I wish I could say I had crazy hobbies like naked skydiving (does naked camping count?), underwater shark impersonator, or snake charmer (I did play with a grass snake for an hour once), but I'm just not that interesting. Instead I'll settle with my actual lame hobbies like reading voraciously, taking tons on photos (including lots of "selfies", of course), and camping (I wasn't kidding about that). I love making thematic playlists and being a QM is a perfect outlet for that; I get to create new playlists every week. 

I'm sorta known for my nonsensical, made up words and random goofy sounds. I've been called weird more than once, I take it as a compliment. (But after attending two Geek Bowls, I'd say I'm on the low end of the GWD weirdness scale.)

I have a motorcycle (that I haven't ridden in a long time) and a cat named Zube (that I've never ridden) who likes to "assist" me when I'm preparing my quiz and creating my blog. I'm a proud native Texan, but I don't often sound like one (until I've had a few drinks).

I'm a Terrible DJ Who Only Plays 15 Seconds of Songs
Josh Prime

It's pub quizes like this that make me wish I was still playing pub quiz. Not only did we have a round on Wes Craven, but round 7 was 8-bit versions of animated and puppet tv shows from my childhood. I would have rocked this quiz! But sadly, I turned in my pencil and quiz sheet for the glamorous life of a quizmaster. Sure, the pay is great and the parties are wild, but its the little things you miss - Am I right? Happy birthday to Brooke from 16 Candles. She enjoyed a delicious cupcake and didn't share with the rest of the class. In the words of Stephanie Tanner, "How Rude." How weird is it that we are going to have more Full House in our lives?

Hey Friends, I'm Josh Prime and I am from the most hated state in the country, New Jersey (seriously, they did studies). Whatever, I don't have to pump my own gas and never make left turns so... deal with it. Sometimes I mispronounce things and blame being from Jersey too, maybe that's why people hate the state. Aside from my Jersey pride, I am all about pop culture and video games (Nick Arcade anyone?... Anyone?). I keep suggesting a round on 90's Nickelodeon, I want to see everyone rocking out to the All That Theme song - remember when that was a thing? It's been real, it's been fun, its been real fun. See ya at the quiz.

What's in a Name
Andy

Stories, tales, inside jokes, and various other levels of silliness. An example of a topical and timely team name would be this week’s Trump/Villaragosa 2016. Because, you see, they’re kinda on opposite ends of the political spectrum. And, you see, one hates mexicans, and the other is a mexican. But the funnier part of this team name may actually be the fact they have some common ground in that their both level 10 philanderers. Kitten

Hey, everybody! Boy, did I enjoy my first time at the ol' Rooster & Moon! Delicious food and drinks, wonderful staff, and awesome quizzers! The sing-alongs (and clap-alongs) were in full force, and I certainly had a fun time stepping in for Bode.   What did we learn tonight?   - "Gurl Got Tittie$", is not a song by Good Charlotte, or anyone else, and as such, was not a song featured in tonight's Round 2... as much as Awkward Silence of Shame (and I) wanted it to be.   - The Magna Carta was signed in 1215, and I Wish I Had A Time Machine showed

Hey, everybody!

I'm still slightly/not really anymore/a little bit new-ish to Denver. I hail from the great Commonwealth of Virginia (the Mother of Presidents). I've played piano since I was 3, though you'll probably never hear it. I prefer to squander my talents.

What else... I've been to 45 states (WI, ND, ID, MT, and AK to go). I'm also a huge David Letterman fan, having seen the show live 20 times before its end, so this is a tough time for me. I don't wanna talk about it.

I'm also on the Twitter @micahwhite and at Facebook /micahwhite.

Anyway, enough about me. See you at Nicolo's Pizza in Capitol Hill every Wednesday at 8pm!

How The Other Side Quizzes
Tas

Good evening, all you strangers! I'm Tas, and I usually am the quizmaster over at the Red Monk. And tonight, I did my best to replace Keith's dulcet tones and bring you all questions and fun in abundance. I had a blast doing it, too. It's always interesting to learn the nuances of each venue I've run the show in - where the regulars sit, the general attitude of the crowd, the food on hand (great popcorn, by the way, Tap!) And I gotta say, you folks have a pretty great place... ...which now makes this part a little bit awkward. I need to apologize for unleashing the Red Monk's stalwart quiz juggernauts, Batman Begins at Conception, upon you folks. See, they're

Have We Done Jim the Fish Yet?

Tonight's blog title is an obvious reference to fans of River Song, and a reminder that our Doctor Who Theme Quiz is only two weeks away!  But first, let's catch up on tonight.   It was a glorious victory for a team with an appropriately enthusiastic name: Basil! Congratulations, y'all, it's long overdue! Second place went to Any Given Vagina, who were honestly a little confused at how well they ranked this week -- not to diminish Basil!'s triumph, but it was a lowish scoring night all-around.  (Round 7 was a killer for everyone except our winners,

"The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been Quiz."
Michael Dudley

Football season is back, and more importantly, FANTASY FOOTBALL IS BACK MOTHERFUCKERS!!!!!! It’s not a game, it’s not a pastime, it’s a religion. But it also means that on Thursday night game nights, like tonight’s preseason showdown between the Seahawks and the Raiders, I have some competition for people’s attention. That said, the people who really love me showed up in full force, AND ALSO GOT TO WATCH THE GAME. Quiz and football. The only thing that could be any better would be if we had a posse of strippers a Fantasy Football draft party special here at Easy Monkey. OH. WE DO.

So this was my first quiz at San Francisco Rose, the darndest, most neighborhoodly bar I have ever set foot in. Have you met Charlie? He's been coming here for 33 years.The walls have stories, and you can feel it in a cozy way. We added our own stories tonight. What was the first question I was asked? "WHERE'S JWARR?!" I know. I am so very not Jwarr. And he did make an appearance to fix the sound system because I could not see things with my own eyes. You want Jwarr? I bring you Jwarr. What else do you want? You want the moon? Just say the word and I'll throw a lasso around it.Having survived a hollared first round, you fine folks put up some highly respectable

Sometimes, I Wish My Cat Didn’t Have Fur So I Could Draw On His Face While He’s Sleeping

Because he fell asleep with his shoes on, so he’s fair game to draw dicks on.  Because he always has his shoes on.  Because he’s covered in fur.  And that means shoes.  Right?  Really, I just wanna draw dicks on my cat’s face.  Doesn’t everyone?  I mean their cats… well, it could be my cat.  I’d understand.  My cat can be a dick.  I had to miss my first night at a quiz one time because my cat put my husband in a hospital.  Anyway. So yeah!  Welcome to the fall semester at Nomad Bar!  It was the first foosball game of the some state sports ball team, and I can’t say some baseball

Awesome time at 75th St Brewery! Well it’s the first time I have seen a sound as a team name, but (Evil Genius Laugh) is brilliant. Also they proved their brilliance by surprising themselves by not coming in last. Kudos to you fine Sirs and Madams. T&A Squared had the honor of graciously taking last place, with grace.

Hello chickadees! We had a delightful night at Hamburger Mary’s last night! Yet again we had a great crowd, and a very on-topic quiz to boot. I try not to use that bitch from Kentucky’s name, because I don’t want to give her any power. However, as Hermione and/or Dumbledore said (depending on if you’re a book purist or not), “fear of a name only increases fear of the thing itself.” To that end, I think maybe amateur Annie Wilkes impersonator Kim Davis should become the new symbol of the LGBTQ+ movement. Now, hear me out. And yes, this blog is about to get REAL. Love ya. On both social media and casual conversation, I frequently see and hear

Josh Wittge is an animatronic talking bear which was created by Ken Forsse with later assistance by Larry Larsen and John Davies. Josh Wittge moves his mouth and eyes via a standard cassette tape deck built into his back. Later versions would use a digital cartridge in place of a cassette. At the peak of his popularity, Josh Wittge became the best-selling toy of 1985 and 1986, and the newest version was awarded the 2006 Animated Interactive Plush Toy of the Year by Creative Child Magazine. 

Josh enjoys table tennis, lunch and Crimean War renactment. He lives.
