________(adjective) than Usual
Vertigo Chuck

I feel like summer is finally here. We aren't getting the spring rainstorms, we aren't getting the spring fever, we aren't even getting the spring cleaning. Well maybe I am a little bit, but I feel like I'm always cleaning. I'm having a fun time working on curriculum for the next three weeks. I'm teaching a few kids robotics. It is going to be fun, but a lot of work for me. I'm not a work-a-holic, but I seem to be acting like one this summer. Like most people during the end-of-the-year holidays. There are just endless parties, but it isn't like you party that hard all the time amirite? It doesn't seem like you could call it binging, but I guess it probably is. Binge partying is all the rage

I'm Charles, Charlie, Chuck, whatever non-derogatory nickname you can think of for Charles. Even though I started QuizMastering at the HandleBar Tavern in December '11, I have quizzed in dozens of places for years. Our teams never quite won anything, but we always have a good time racking our brains for those little tidbits of info that GWD requires nightly.

I am definitely a geek. That picture is of me swinging from two phonebooks leafed together. Yeah, just like Mythbusters used to make. A physicist by trade, I don my mask and head out into the night partying hard and consuming various social lubricants.

Join me at my quiz and I will try to swoon you with my dulcet tones of vector calculus and Star Wars references. If you are really lucky, catch me with my Rubik's cube and I will get rid of its entropy faster than takes a grown man (or woman) to change a toilet paper roll (or paper towel roll)1.

Gordon Freeman is my hero. For the winter gift-giving season, I want a red crowbar so that I can keep it under my pillow while I sleep.

Random Knowledge for the Tie!

What an exciting night of quizzing we had at Conrad's! It was my pleasure to fill in for Dave and babysit his class of drunken quizzers. Everyone behaved very well, and I left a note for Dave telling him he should be very proud of his crowd. A+ for everyone!   We beat the heat in the air-conditioned oasis that is Conrad's, sipping our radlers and eating our taco salad . . . wait, maybe this is getting to be a bit subjective. Anyway. We were here. We answered questions. And we had a tie. A big fat three-way tie for first place. Questions about new Scrabble words, swimming and marijuana ('cause those things go together, naturally!), Picasso, and a very poopy Round 7 just

Fun times at the Cashew! I may have been feeling slightly under the weather, but that ain't going start this automobile of fun (beep beep!). Thanks to everyone that came out, you're all the best!   What did we learn at last night's game, you ask? You can pwn Scrabble with your sexting skills. Unless your name is Neil Young or Mr. Rush, the Prog Rock band, nobody wants to hear music from Canadians. Alice from "Go Ask Alice" had her priorities mismatched. Pablo Picasso never got called an asshole, not like you! (Google that if you don't get the reference) And Weird Al will never have a greater song than "Eat It". That song is amazing.   Two teams came

I'll Make You Poopular
Kalkema

Hey Guys! Great game last night, amazing energy and it was great to see a full house!   We learned a lot at quiz last night: We learned some new Scrabble words. I learned what an "Octothorpe" is. We listened to some Canadian parodies. We learned which states have the most protected trees and squirrels. I learned weed is from Asia. and that its been almost 10 years since the Crocodile Hunter died. We had some miscommunications about a round on Picasso where Picasso wasn't the answer. I learned that on players favorite some was "Mr. Jones." We all fully enjoyed the new versions of some

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!

Cosby? 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.

What the heck is an 'octothorpe?'
Old Dirty QuizMasta

I mean I knew it was a pound sign once upon a time but octothorpe?  Seriously?  Talk about a stumper I don’t think anyone got that one.  But anyway, props go to Beyonce Knowledge for taking home the big W last night.  I’ve gotta hand it to them for jokering at the right time.  Had Birthday Bash not jokered the round they did it would have been a bit of a blowout.  Instead they snuck home with a second place prize.   Oh and one more thing, I know Bruno does most of the singing but it’s Mark Ronson’s song. That’s why none of you got credit for that.  Because you got it wrong.

On the History of North American Relations
Quizmaster Pio

A long time ago, there was a war.    No, I'm not talking about the Civil War thing that's been in the news a lot.  I'm pretty sure that my stance on that matter should be fairly obvious.  I'm the right side.   No, I'm talking about the war between a man from New Jersey and a man from Canada.  It was a Cold War, yet one fought with words both hot and cold.  Lots of words.  As the American, my words were more powerful and magnified by culture and standing (also a microphone).  Yet his words were still heard.   Eventually, the Canadian was gone and a tiny hole was left in the tapestry of the quiz

Let's talk about me, finally. Sean McNeil once said, "I don't know how you can be so arrogant yet hate yourself so much." Thanks, Sean. To answer the question you did not actually ask, I do not know how I pull it off but I do and it works. That is, if you consider mind-boggling neurosis and crippling depression "working" but let us just go with it. I live in Seattle yet I am originally from New Jersey. That means I am a bastard. Do not say "GTL" around me, I will cut you. I may cut you anyway, since I have issues. I got introduced to this whole pub quiz world when I went to a quiz at my current venue with two friends and a sociopathic girl without a soul. After the soulless girl left my life I noticed that Geeks Who Drink was hiring in Seattle and I thought, "Oh my, this seems like a great place to feed my ravenous narcissim as well as fill the hole left by the soulless girl with lots of meaningless sex, perhaps finding some girl and trick her into loving me." Well, it did not quite work out like that, but I am still trying. In the mean time, I really enjoy having everyone listen to everything I say and deconstructing them verbally when their actions do not please me. Or verbally deconstructing them because I am bored. Also drinking lots of whiskey. I feel like my father.

When You've Got It, Flaunt It

Salutations, quizzers!  As I type this, I’m sitting here at McFadden’s after another great quiz with you lovely people.  Just before I started typing this, I was staring pretty much mesmerized at one of the screens here at McFadden’s that was showing some TV show about the Laker Girls.  In fact, I think it’s called “Laker Girls: 2014-2015 Season.”  Super creative title, right?  Anyway, even though the sound was turned down, I pretty much got the gist; it’s some sort of episodic reality show about the audition process, and I’m guessing they probably follow several girls from beginning to end, as the number

"I beat China all the time!"

Man! You guys haven't heard of Ween? Ween was a weird cult band in the 80’s. Two dudes who called themselves Dean and Gene Ween. They played as a duo and sang with an audio tape in the background. They were around for 28 years, until Dean quit in 2012. I guess I’m not that surprised that you guys don’t know about them. They weren’t that good. I mean, unless you like weird music by two drug fueled dudes. They even admit themselves that  “the music was designed to be obnoxious”. How can you go wrong with that? Though there are MANY big name artists who seem to go by the same philosophy ( Justin Bieber, I’m looking at you.) so

Can you believe it's July already? I'm sick of this hot weather. Apparently it's supposed to get a little cooler after this weekend, though I'm getting conflicting stories from different places. So who the hell knows. All I know is that the mornings are really nice and the afternoons/evenings are murder.   I feel a little strange complaining about sub-100 degree heat, being from Missouri where 100ish temperatures are the norm from May to September, sometimes longer, and sometimes starting earlier. It gets HOT there for a long time, and much more humid, too, usually in the 90-100% range. Missouri be hot, and there's nothing to eat there but chain restaurants, and there's
