And Here Come The Pretzels
Cousin Chet

There are some people out there that think The Gorge is a better outdoor concert venue than Red Rocks. Those people are called idiots. I kid, of course. Most of them are just people who have never been to Colorado, but did spend one magical summer in Portland and grew a man bun. Now that I put it that way, yeah, they still sound like idiots. But Red Rocks still is the best outdoor concert venue in the west. And don’t let the whole U2 and Dave Matthews Band thing throw you. There have also been some good bands that have played there over the years. Thom Yorke of Radiohead has said that it’s his favorite place to play in the US. I’ve also seen such great and diverse

Dial 112 If You Really Want the Truth
Josh

It was nice night to be back at Jagged Mountain after a week long hiatus due to a sick puppy.  Big thanks to the Quizbot himself for stepping in and subbing for me while I tended to that.  Slightly fewer teams than what we’ve had the last couple of weeks at Jagged, I can only imagine that most of Denver is still drying out from the numerous Super Bowl celebrations and the actual Super Bowl itself, kind of an exciting time to be in Denver for sure.  It’s a city that never seems to disappoint. Here is a rundown on some things we learned at quiz last night. Britney Spears has yet to write an Autobiography but when she does she should consider

No Wu-Tang!?
Max Power

Hey everyone! Thanks for coming out last night! It was good to be back after being sick last week. This week, we had 13 teams vying for gift card glory, but alas, only two teams can take home prizes. Plus, I had friends tonight! Shout out to Run EMC^2 and RoboDocs (who are not only my friends, but my lab-mates as well). But of course, I’m happy to see all of the returning faces each week, especially when it’s cold as fuck outside. The results were really close tonight, with Rubio’s Debate Coach taking home first prize, and Lent Rules coming in second place. And two teams tied for third, missing out

Kevin lives in Somerville and spends his time doing lots of math so that robots can more easily take over the world. When not doing that, he's devoting his time to brewing beer, and listening to Bowie. He's also an ordained minister (it's amazing what you can do for free on the interwebs). And yes, that's Kevin chilling with Tommy Wiseau, director of the wonderful film The Room (nbd).

Big Big, Little Little, Bow and Arrow
Mark

If you think the title of this blog makes no sense, then you would be wrong. As I am writing this I am also reviewing choreography for a Nia dance class I'm teaching tonight. "Big Big, Little Little, Bow and Arrow" will change your life. Our quiz last night was a delight! We bathed in the sounds of nude film scenes in Round 7. Considering I personally hadn't seen most of the films, I could only imagine what was visually happening as I heard these scenes unfold. I envisioned sexy people during these clips. Speaking of sexy people, our bartender Jen received a generous tip and a sweet note from two bar patrons who wrote: "You are so beautiful." How about that?! Photographing

Cold Medicine and Beer Make Strange Bedfellows
WhatashittyDM

Well, I had contracted some kind of jungle disease, with hours to spare, so I loaded myself with Day Quill, Redbull, and Cask Ale and soldered on. Had a real fun crowd last night, complete with a broken Robot Rubio who kept turning in answer sheets that let me know that Barack Obama knows exactly what he is doing. We learned a lot about dying celebrities (in movies anyway) well as who could glean the obviousness of round one. We learned not to leave your wallet in your back pocket, and that nothing in the world is real, it is all a shimmering illusion brought on by the mixture of Dextromethorphan and alcohol. Although, truth be told, a very kind illusion gave me some fossils last night. That’s

Where's the Cheddar From?
Nicknames are Hard

In 1898, the first car crash resulting in a fatality happened to Henry Lindfield whose electric car's steering gear failed, and he crashed at the bottom of a hill at Purley Corner, Surrey. He was a Brighton business agent for International Cars, on his way to London. The car eventually turned completely round, ran through a wire fence and hit an iron post. The main artery in his leg was cut. Surgeons at Croydon hospital amputated the limb, but he died of shock from the operation the following day. A verdict of accidental death was returned. His passenger, 18 or 19-year-old son Bernard, was thrown clear of the vehicle and escaped almost unhurt. The first pedestrian fatally struck by a car died

Sketch comedy keeps the world going round
McFly

Round 6 was all about sketch comedy, so what better way than to celebrate with a nod to them. I grew up glued to a television, as you imagine, it lead to eventually getting this job. I wasn't an "indoor kid" either. I was the kid who played outside all day, then would stay up until 5 in the morning watching TV. I wish I were lying, but that's how it went. I've always been that way and will always be that way. My favorite channel growing up was Comedy Central. I had been thinking the other day about how Comedy Central has been one of the most consistent programming channels through Cable TV's brief history. Channels like TLC, MTV and even the Food Network have changed so much. Comedy Central

The nickname McFly is derived from my love for Back to the Future.

A Night of (Fairly) Common Sense
NateFincher

Starting out with 13 teams, lucky number 13, but apparently Dancing Dildos found something more fun to do…I’m guessing that they’re batteries ran out and they had to go get some new ones. And US… I don’t have any idea what happened to them. So 11 teams stuck it out for the whole run. There was a little grumble about one question at the end of the night. It was clear that Lon Lon Ranch is from The Legend of Zelda, but there was a little discussion about whether or not Moo Moo Farm was from Mario Kart of Harvest Moon, but after just a little bit of research we found out that Mario Kart came out 4 years before Harvest Moon started, so

That time I almost got killed on my way to quiz
Dusty

Tonight I was afraid I wasn't going to make quiz.  An out of state driver didn't realize Clarkson turns into 2 lanes at 14th and tried to tear the front off of my VW going into the Argonaut parking lot.  Some people really want their drinks when they want their drinks, I guess.  I jumped outta the car after missing him my inches to see if we'd made contact or not.  I'd been honking and he stopped, got out of his car with a confused look on his face and then realized it was two lanes and came over to me.  We hadn't made contact so there was no reason to fight with him for being a less than cautious driver.  When he started speaking to me, I screamed "Jesus is watching

Matt's first time
Matt

One boy, 16 teams.  My thoughts - broken down by the minute (or every so often). 9:45 p.m. It was my FIRST night hosting at Bloomington's Quaff ON. Upon greeting Punk Time - one our regular teams - Kinzie, one of Quaff ON's awesome waitresses, handed me a beer from the oldest brewery on Earth: Weihenstephan. I'm not going to pretend like I know how to pronounce it, but wow - it was good. The place was packed. Ok Go and Allen Stone were among the artists I chose to jam out to. Good vibes. I felt pretty good. 10:00 p.m. Let's goooooooooooooooooo!

You have an awesome mix tape….

I get that a lot… especially from the bar staff.  The music I play during the quiz is an eclectic mix of pretty much everything and anything, from Prodigy to Pink to Genesis!   Speaking of Genesis, I recently listened to “Supper’s Ready” for the first time using headphones…  Freaking Amazing!!!  If you don’t know the song, I feel sorry for you.  A 22 minutes orgasm of Prog Rock at is finest!   Michael Crichton did not just release his 40th something novel named Cell… he has been dead since 2008.   Quick blog this week… had to drive to Pittsburgh!   On

Good day to all you loyal and awesome Thursday night Shenanigan loving quizzers. Your sub host Hammer here tonight bringing you the re-cap for Thursdays quiz. Major shout out to The Other Team for bribing their Quizmaster with Prosciutto, so yummy. So I drank The Red Ale, Packinghouse's Own Black Beauty, ant their delicious porter.

I gave you two options: a band and a solo artist. You chose which one was playing in each audio clip. For a second point, you named

Consensual Sodomy Is Usually Not Awful
Joshalicious

What a treat I had tonight! It was such a pleasure to QM as CosmoNoms. What a fantastic restaurant. Delicious food, a fine selection of delectable brews, and what wonderful people. It was better than sodomy. But we’ll get to that later. The staff and the patrons were all friendlier than Buddy the Elf. The teams were in high spirits, and the regulars welcomed me with open arms. I felt like I was in Cheers or How I Met Your Mother. Basically, I wish my life were a bar-based sit-com. That would be great, right? Having minimal problems week-to-week that can be solved in a half hour at the bar. The League. That’s another good one. Speaking of bars, I feel like the teams at this

I managed to successfully avoid Norwalk Virus on my cruise, but even if I hadn't explosive diarrhea would not have kept me from my hosting duties last night.  Despite some technical difficulties with the audio, things went pretty smoothly. Early jokers actually paid off this time, with Blue Suede Booze and Just the Coat Tails holding on to second and third place throughout the evening.  Everyone's favorite suck ups Helluva Bottom Carter lept ahead and snatched first place yet again.

The Fiorinas of Whore Island
BJ, the lovable scamp

Whew, what a night. Big crowd, lots of political talk (I assume because of the democratic debate and because I had a microphone and kept ranting about my twisted and shaky political stances because I demand attention and that you read this entire sentence), well behaved and very attractive regulars and newbies, and some very shouty noobs. Note the difference. For the second night in a row (see this blog for evidence of my paranoia), I believe that the key to winning quiz is the drugging of other teams. Bill Cosby’s Drinking Buddies seemed to be getting chummy with many of our other

Mellow Greetings! It's me, BJ, the lovable scamp, coming to you from a building of sorts in ol' Pasco in Eastern Warshingtoneia. The desert, with one s, because you only want to meet one snake in the desert. You want beer? I have beer, that I made, with my own two hands, and lots of equipment, and sometimes other people's two hands. Been doing it for years. Its pretty good. My dad doesn't like any of the beers I make because he is a big wuss that could beat me up. But he won't, because I'm too fast. I can also write you a story, or a comic, or a movie, cause that's what I do. Kind of. You wanna go play pinball? Awesome, me too! We have so much in common. Let's chill sometime, bring our spouses, of which I have one wifal unit, and dog(s)/cat(s), of which I also have one and two units, respectively. See you tomorrow!

Meet Me in the State of Lousiville
Sweet Adam

Wow does time go by fast or what? I was just thinking about how far away Geek Bowl is and it’s right around the corner. Austin and Albuquerque have been the haunts for these past couple of GBs but we’re back in our home state, ready to rock this joint. At DU’s arena nonetheless – what a treat. If you haven’t signed up, there is still time! Grab a team and take a stab at the $10,000 prize. Or just hang back, enjoy a few pints and enjoy the gong show we like to call Geek Bowl. And live Round 2s are quite the highlight. One of my favorite parts is in Austin a few Geek Bowls ago where we took advantage of the “live music capital of the world” (which

Across the assorted continuities of the universe, there have been various interpretations of Adam. One of Adam's most notable characteristics in any form was his adamant commitment to leadership by example, and avoidance of any hypocrisy in his command. Adam is a wise and essentially upbeat battlefield general.

Other minor details about Adam's personality and personal life — for example, his dislike of rap music ("Blaster Blues" and "Quest for Survival"), which set him at odds with some music-loving characters. Adam also enjoys televised sports, most notably softball which he even plays ("The Master Builder"), as well as setting up a basketball court outside the quiz. Though Adam's personality is like that of a human man age 40-50, he is not above watching afternoon soap operas.

I like gin and tonics.
