Fire Code Night at St. Maarten's
John "Sisqo Was An Underappreciated Genius" Powell

What's up my geeks? Last night was insane! We seriously had 27 teams! That's just nuts. Can we all take a moment to reflect on how nuts that is? The most we'd had before that was 25 I think, and that felt like it was just impossible to beat. But you all did it. You glorious bastards did it. Huge shoutouts to everyone who came out last night for the very first time. I always like to meet the quiz virgins and I feel very special that you saved yourself for me. I hope I was gentle. Anyways, let's have some recap time, eh?Best team name of the night goes to Buttstuff.gov. Hands down this was the funniest team name to me. Maybe it's because I'm a buttstuff kind of guy
[ ...more... ]

So my name is John. Here is a blurb about me:

 

  • I love movies. So much. And not just the ones with animated animals teaching me the true meaning of Christmas.
  • I'm a musician. I studied music at school and it's by far the thing that brings me the most joy. I have a job doing the music at a church here in C'ville that I love. I love music. And beer. 
  • If I could have any super power it would be photographic reflexes. Anything I watch, I can do a la Taskmaster.
  • If you ever want to buy me a beer, I like Vienna Lager and anything that doesn't taste like a lawnmower or too hoppy.
  • 15 minutes can save you 15% or more on car insurance
  • My favorite movie is Ghostbusters.
  • I prefer short walks on the beach to long ones. I just don't have time for all of that walking
  • I love to chat. If I'm busy and counting points, feel free to come say hi while I'm hosting! Let's be friends!

Old People Candy Is The Best Candy
Audrey

Hey The Goodnight!   We had quiz last night! Round One was all about things that were down and dirty, and Round Two was alphabetized!   In Round Three, y’all were naming movies based on the actors, but one team got the intructions confused, and thought they were supposed to name the next two top billed actor, which would have been REALLY hard. I’m impressed that they wrote anything at all, honestly.   In Round Four we found out that Amazon workers are sad, and in Round Five y’all named poets. Each poet had their

Why Am I Never Recording Video When I’m Supposta?
Rev. Lindsay

When you have an intimate crowd, you can do some things that you just can’t do in a large room.  Like, when a player yells for you to not stop the song because it’s “Try A Little Tenderness” by Otis Redding.  And it’s Otis.  We love Otis.  You can demand for them to do the Duckie dance from Pretty In Pink… and they probably will.  SO one half of Harvey Dent did just that and got to pick a prize from the Bag of Glowy StuffTM for their mad dancing skills.   But of course, I didn’t pull out my camera because I didn’t expect her to do that.

You Had One Mission Carlos…
James Sterling Pound

Hey hey hey Pinthouse Gang! Thanks so much for joining us last night, what a fun time. Yea, ol Carlos took his terrorist beard down to the Trump rally to stir things up (I hear he couldn’t even stand staying the entire time, but did get in spitting distance of Lord Supreme Ornage himself. Whether he did we’ll have to fin out next week…), so instead we had the wonderful Stephanie in as scorekeeper! And damn if she isn’t awesome! So yea, all that and a quiz? We got Down and Dirty in Round One, fought back singing along to Toto and George Michael the best we could, and figure out some movies form the under the title credits. Y’all know

The Cruelest Month
Turducken Cupcake

TS Eliot said that April is the cruelest month, but he was being sarcastic.  Or dour.  Or whatever.  Basically he was saying that he likes things bleak AF and for April to cause lilacs to bloom and mother nature to be reinvigorated, it's cruel.  At least, that's my interpretation. But he was wrong, and if he had actually put any thought into it, he would have said that indeed August is the cruelest month, because it's just so incredibly worthless.  And hot.  And literally nothing happens. Slate actually put this better than I ever

Mandrew

Another week down, another treasure trove of strange team names.  In this case, however, the names were actually inversely applicable.  I’ll expound later.  I’m going to take the high road and not discuss the Lochte alleged robbery like everyone else seems to be chattering about.  Instead, we should point out that as of this Thursday, Christmas is only 4 months away and the decorations have been out at some stores for well over a month.  This is obviously a tired subject, but I’m still vexed by the nightmare that is Christmas.  Don’t get me wrong… I like the holiday and the season.  What I don’t like is the overwhelming

All You Need Is Quiz
Rachelbot

Sometimes life is too crazy and all you need is quiz. That’s how my life was last night. Just thing, after thing, but at the end of that Tuesday I was able to sit at my favorite spot at the bar, order my version of a Boiler Maker (it includes a Prairie Fire), and quiz with you dummies again. It’s truly a day-maker. We had another great evening last night with 14 teams and lots of new faces. MAGA took home the gold along with the $25 gift card, and Weed, 9/11, and the Truth closed in at second. The team who goes by MAGA seems to change their name every week, making them difficult to spot and thereby less likely to have a bounty

Names are harder than questions
Caroline

Have you ever read someone’s name and even though you were familiar with the spelling, you realized you had never said this word aloud? As a non-American, this happens to me a lot, usually not when I am on a microphone though. First, I have to admit that this is partly my fault. I may have announced something to the effect of the funnier the team name, the more sympathy you will get from your host at last night’s pub quiz at Bar Thalia. As a result, teams always try to be creative and the funniest names usually incorporate current events and news in a tongue in cheek kind of way. Yesterday’s second place winners got an honest chuckle out of me when I first read their team

Greetings Stadiites, It's your QM Will here watching the last episode of Stranger Things while simulcasting the Cruiser Weight Classic, and writing the recap for the quiz. Welcome to the 21st century...dabbler in many things, master of none.  This show is a must watch. I feel like the Goonies meets X-Files should be enough to get your attention, but it should be noted that this movie is also the first time since Beetlejuice that I have enjoyed Winona Ryder. These kids are adorable, Eleven and Dustin being my favorite. I mean Dustin has a lisp and no front teeth, YOU CAN'T TEACH THAT!! Our quiz last night had a little bit of everything, poetry, movies,

WhitneyWhitworth

Mon petit quizzers. Sad news- my work fish died. Great news, Kate’s Back… Whatever had their ringer return after two weeks away landing them just one point shy of 100! I was seriously impressed with scores last night. When, after the first scoring break, a team misses exactly 0 pints, you have to respect. I mean, maybe not on the level of Beyonce, but on a pretty solid level never the less. Even during the most tricky of questions, like our sooner or later Marquee round didn’t seem to stump you. It wasn’t until a few missteps in round seven, when identifying famous marines, did you seem to falter. And let’s be honest, you knew that

They Can't Even Drink Beer!
Ash Plissken

The generosity of geeks never ceases to amaze me.  Last night we raised almost $250 for the Crohns and Colitis Foundation of America!  That's fantastic!  People who suffer from those afflictions can't even drink beer, the least we can do is throw in a couple bucks for a raffle ticket to try and win Disney coasters for a good cause.  Speaking of which - holy shit Jonathan and Damian!  A 43 ticket wingspan??  That's insane.  I feel like I'm only 43 tickets tall, and honestly now I think I need to buy a roll of raffle tickets just to see if anyone can beat that. Because nothing says charitable giving like the thought of the Holocaust we made sure we

You know that song is about a big penis, right?
ChristopheR2D2

That's right, Apple.  The Pixies' Gigantic is just about a dude with a big schlong.  Good stuff huh?  I still can't believe that got used in a commercial. Speaking of good stuff, Debbie Washing my Shorts jumped out to an early lead and cruised to victory. They jokered round 2, and went a perfect 1 for 16 in round three.  Meanwhile 35th Street Red Hots used a well placed joker in the final round to jump up and snag second.  Well done kids. OOH!  Yanno what else, I realized in the video round that the actor who played Admiral Ozzel in the Empire Strikes Back is the same guy who played Hitler in the Last

On Tuesdays, we quiz at Owen O'Leary's in Southborough and this Tuesday night was no different...except that it saw two sudden death overtimes AND a tiebreaker round before the smoke cleared a winner was determined. How did we get there? Read on to find out! It was a big night for quizzing, with a full 12 teams stepping into the proverbial ring to do intellectual battle in the hopes of being one of the top two teams at the end of the night to claim one of the gift card prizes. There were a few of the usual suspects - Salt; Brook Street Posse; Hawkeyes; Nerds with Attitude; and The Shinkickers - but

The First Time Always Hurts a Little
Donald

As the title implies, my first night on my own was a bit rough, as I'm sure all the teams can attest. After I got past the whole nervously-shitting-my-pants thing, I then ran into difficulties with my playlist on both rounds two AND seven! All-in-all, I think I did just fine, though. Andrew was there to teach everyone a thing or two about what kicking ass as an individual quizzer meant, and truly cemented himself as THE Quiz Master in my mind. He scored a whopping 78 point all by his lonesome, and looked downright dapper the whole time doing it, too. First place rounded out with Eurolunch with an insane 91 points, and my favorite team name of

OMG quick write something
JeffreyMetius

So I had a great blog all written out about memories from my childhood…but I never sent it too myself from my work computer.  And then work decided to keep me late tonight so I’m doing the ultimate quick omg I’m in a rush blog entry.  I haven’t really had to do one of these in a while, but tonight I have to leave to go host another quiz in about 8 minutes…so this one is getting the hurry up treatment.  It really isn’t half assed if you will…there is still thought into what I have to say and why it’s being said…but it is rushed.  So with all that said I hope you all had a great time last night and I’ll catch

Hello all!

I'm Jeff...the really big guy. In my time when I'm not hosting quiz I enjoy playing hockey and taking my jeep up into the mountains to get away from everyone.  While I'm up there I ponder the many parts of life...like why do hotdogs come in packs of 10 and the buns come in packs of 8...and yes you can explode and yes you can implode...but can you just plode?

Just think about it.
