Colonel Sanders isn't the only one thats extra crispy

Another great season down and in the books. Thank you everyone for coming out to the last quiz of the season but don’t worry, we’ll be back soon after the Summer. Not to get your hopes up but we may even start sooner than October this next season. Now, did you notice I was more red than a baboons ass? Yeah I don’t think we’re used to seeing such nice sunny weather here in the pacific northwest and my Irish skin certainly doesn’t take to well to it. Despite being out on a boat drinking all day in the sun I mustered enough strength to get over my burns and come host the last quiz here at North Bend Bar and Grill for the season. I’m writing this blog while

Man, some days you eat the bear, and some days the bear eats you, and some days you put a bunch of numbers in the wrong column and you screw the bear out of like ten points but the bear is really nice about it and swaps prizes with the second-place bear and everything is good. Such was the case with (eventual) first-place winners ...And I'm All Out of Gum and runners-up Pocket Jagoff, after some bonehead quizmaster (who shall remain... me) had to go back through a couple rounds and audit the answer sheets.

Don't Go to the Lake

      I am SO happy you didn't go to the lake! Instead, you came out in force to quiz and it was greatly appreciated. And, there are a ton of gross things in the lake.  Animals poop in there. Fish live in there (and you know how gross they smell). Drownings. Drunks. Sunburns. No WiFi. No GoT. No Netflix. Actually, the whole reason I hate going to any body of water: people throw water on me and try to drag me into the body of water.

In Memory of the Day Before Memorial Day

Well for a holiday weekend it was a great turnout.  Almost better than normal... It's like the regulars are taking for granted what they have.  Just kidding!  I know you all know I am pretty great, even though I can't properly pronounce everyday words.  I didn't science in college, okay! Or sports... Anyway, down to the nitty gritty. In first place was Bunny and Kitty Bein' Best Friends, a name with any other CAKE members does as well...  In second place was The Worst Thing about Prison? The Dementors. Although this quiz was a tough one these two teams powered through to beat out all the rest.  Have

Last Quiz of May
Mike

Thanks again to all who ventured out to compete in yet another epic battle! Again we battled back and forth, this time debating muppets, animal named artists, and the hilarity of some awesome Bad Lip Reading movie clips, but "I Lost on Jeopardy Baby" could not be beaten as they walked out victorious. Seriously, how many people can say they've battled on the greatest quiz stage ever? I bet not you. Study hard, listen to all the music you can, watch all the movies, and be unbeatable! Thanks again, and for making me feel welcome in what is proving to be a seriously fun and awesome job! See you all next week!

Hello lovely geeks! Tonight I made my first appearance at New Helevtia Brewing Company. I’ll definitely have to come back, to play or host, I had a great time. Great people, tasty beers, and a fantastic environment. Thanks for having me! So it was a bit rough tonight. That Random Knowledge round can frequently hurt, but tonight was particularly tough. Although, I was impressed with the right answers that tonight’s teams did get right. On the whole, New Helevtia could really be a contender! We had some fun rounds tonight.  Something Smells Rank gave

Let Me Be Your Thousand Points of Light
Mumbles Jones

Because it’s Memorial Day weekend, they’re showing movies on cable all weekend long. One of the movies I watched this weekend was “Knocked Up.” It was the first movie I watched with my now wife. And watching it got me to thinking about the maybe-too-short career of one Katherine Heigl. Now, I never watched “Grey’s Anatomy,” but you couldn’t deny that she was on an upward trajectory in the mid-Aughts. (Side note: we still need a decent nickname for the first decade of the 21st century.) She was really funny in “Knocked Up,” and was starting to become a bigger name. And that’s when she started doing interviews.

I enjoy reading and long walks on the beach. I've been around and seen a few places and done a few things. Even after all that, my wife/scorekeeper still liked me enough to put a ring on it.

I love this quiz, and the people who make it what it is! Seriously, so much fun last night at Geno's! Pretty big turn out for a long weekend as well! The competition was fierce, the in correct answers were awesome and the atmosphere was amazing!  If you missed it, you missed out, simple as that. That being said, here's something I wrote a few years ago for Memorial day and I'd like to share it here.  To all those who've served your country in war or peace: I salute you and thank you for that service. For those that lived, I beg you to remember the fallen. For those that died, I remember and honor you. Be sure to check out the scores to the

Thanks For The Memorial Day
J.D.

Buenos noches, everyone from beautiful Bowie, Maryland's own TJ Elliott's restaurant. This week was our Memorial weekend show and we saw the return of a few old favorite teams as well. We honestly had more teams show up than I initially expected since holidays usually aren't so kind to attendance. We still had a great time even if I kinda sped through some things so no one missed any other weekend parties. I just better see about 2 times as many teams next week so we can get a few weeks in before everyone vanished for the summer. Until then, I'll keep geeking and drinking...and watching some good movies...which definitely makes me think about... *My Thought

I took a turn hosting for Jon this week so he could see to his new family! Congratulations, Jon, and welcome to the land of No Sleep (or so I've heard). I hope everything went well and you and the family are getting to know your newest member.  Y'all didn't really know much about the films and shows the former teen stars of Dawson's Creek went on to star in, did you? Only 2 teams scored a 6, and the rest of you were much, much worse. Round 7 was a tough one, is what I'm saying.  Those Historical Missed Connections were pretty great, though, weren't they?

I was hopeful that a Memorial Day Weekend quiz would bring us good numbers and some fresh blood, both of which proved to be true. Unsurprisingly, Brainfarts won the day, even carrying a near-perfect score through the first 5 rounds. Very impressive. SC Slow Down ultimately took second place, a slot that they secured early and were able to hold only – but only just barely. Mr. Meowgi very nearly pulled off the impossible, moving from last place up into second between rounds 6 and 8. Geeks Who Drink pencils were given as consolation prizes for the 3rd place team. I think everyone, especially me, enjoyed the Missed Connections round. Some Marvin Gaye, then some

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). Where you can find me: Saturday- Left Coast Brewery at 7pm. Occasionally subbing other SoCal quizes. You might just get lucky.

It was a pleasure once again to be able to fill in for Emily, and with Matt’s help as scorekeeper.  We had a great holiday weekend crowd and some respectable competition for top honors.  Before we get to that, let’s recap what we learned last night: You guys really know your South American geography, especially when the clock is running.  The capital of Guatemala sounds like a Simpsons joke but it’s totally legit.

...for this quiz to be over! Any night we can talk about Dawson's Creek and The Mighty Ducks is a good night for me, and this quiz night ticked all the boxes for me. Joshua Jackson had a place of honor on my fourteen-year-old wall collage, right next to Jared Leto and Jonathan Taylor Thomas, so I was thrilled when our Audio Round 7 was clips of movies and TV shows that featured members of the main cast of Dawson's Creek. Besides The Mighty Ducks (duh) the best contribution to the category was James Van der Beeks's stunning turn as, well, James Van der Beek on "Don't Trust the B**** in Apartment 23", I just love him in that.   My endlessly looped repeated listenings

Tonight we are going to talk about presidential fetishes. Actually no, let’s not do that. We don’t need that kind of negativity in our lives. Let me just say that if you ever place a Missed Connections ad, there was probably a reason you missed that connection. Though I can only imagine how this will evolve when we finally discover time travel. Just imagine a millennial fan girl transporting herself back to medieval France just so she can get with Cardinal Richelieu. Spoiler alert: those babies will have to be Catholic.

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.
