Chuck Norris's Patronus Is Chuck Norris
Tudor

What a wonderful finish following a shitty start to my beloved quiz night. I usually go to the FedEx print shop the night before my quiz when I get off work, but I am often wont to forget, as I did last night. So I left for the quiz a little earlier than usual to obtain my printables before. I use the "Print-&-Go" amenities, which allow me to email what I need printed to the 3 special machines, at which I just enter in the code they sent me and print away. Takes 2 minutes. Unless all 3 machines are being used by morons printing over $100 worth of pages. Maybe it's just me, but if I had that kind of business to take care of, I might consider just going to the help desk and having them knock

The Quiz with SWAG-ger
Dav

  Greetings quizzlings! Last night was pretty sweet. We had 512 Brewery in the house as the featured Pint Night beer and they brought the good stuff. I tried the bourbon-aged porter and was floored. It tasted great, but was just a bit to potent for my tastes. I would never have made it through the night had I stuck with those. I did love their Pecan Porter though. It was smooth and delicious! You know what else I loved? All of the sweet sweet swag. I had T-shirts, glassed, shades, a wall fixture (I think), and a kickass jug! The best part, I gave it all away for bonus question answers and a special mini-competition on naming movies whose titles sound like performing fellatio.

Llama Milkshake
Nate Fincher

Now I’m a foodie so I’m like, ok, I can get down with this. I’m willing to try llama milk, and come on who doesn’t like a milkshake!? So we’re wrapping up the break, goin thru the team names and we get to Llama Milkshake thinking these people gotta have a great story behind this name. Its either gonna be a delectable dessert or disturbingly disgusting. So I ask, tell me more…they respond… “That’s the name of our goats.” Goats…they named one goat, Llama, and one goat, Milkshake. Llama milk is nowhere near this situation…oh thank goddess, I was a little leery of trying milk of llama. The rest

Mom's Club Shindig!
Jake

What’s going on, Shanahan’s, Mom’s Club Vancouver - South? Tonight we were all part of Quiz for a Cause, a moment when we as quizmasters stop playing audio clips that relate to various sex acts, and get real. Tonight, we were raising fundage and awareness for Educational Opportunities for Children and Families (EOCF) here in Vancouver. It was really nice to look at some new faces (as opposed to those same cranky ones I always see), and I had to wonder if the Mom’s Club would be able to handle our acerbic, dry wit and a quiz that always tends to get a

In a land far, far away, in a time in the not-too-distant future, in an era dominated by dragons, one man was born - nay - created - nay - FORGED from the fires of Valhella (which is part Valhalla, part... well, you get it), and came upon this earth seeking geeks, not for punching, but in order to be a part of their geekery. He searched far, wide, deep, across, shallow and even in the fourth dimension for eons until he came upon the great city of Portland, where the geeks flowed like PBR. "Get thee to a nerdery!" they cried, and it was here that the man struck his mighty staff into the earth with the force of a million bluebirds carrying a thousand hippopotami carrying twenty-three tanks, and the earth opened upon to him, releasing the demonspawn of Australia, which all happened to be drunk upon Foster's. After defeating them with his vorpal sword of might, he descended upon Portland (and related metropolitan area) to take his place at the throne of geeks. He made slaves of many, including Jake, who runs pub quizzes!

If you're reading this...chances are you read last weeks blog. I would like to take this opportunity to apologize for that. THAT is time you can never get back. Sorry! I don't even remember writing it. I fell asleep in the throes of a cold medicine stupor, and dreamt about the blog. ...and least that's what I thought. It was one of those dreams or memories that are fuzzy and just realistic enough to have happened. And it did. But I when I woke up I wasn't sure and I even had to check the website. As I read the blog the next morning, I was embarrassed how bad it was- it doesn't even make sense. I had planned to go in and edit - hoping to

Well hi there, thanks for stopping by.

You look lovely today.

My name's Stefanie, I'm from Dallas originally and have been hanging out in Houston for four years and love this giant, beautiful city and all it has to offer. 

I went to Texas State University and hung out for a while in Austin, so I guess you could say I get around.

I enjoy long walks on the beach and lying about things I enjoy.

Feel free to bring me presents, buy me beers, and tell me I'm pretty.

He'll Always Be J. Jonah Jameson to Me
Mark, International Man of Intrigue

We stuffed another eleven teams into the Brew Werks this evening as we rolled down the quiz. We got to celebrate Mel Brooks with the greatest musical number ever (who doesn’t love dancing Nazis?), appreciate that MGMT sounds almost exactly the same in lullaby form, and made fun of people for not listening to instructions yet again (Cesium was not an acceptable answer). Arnold Palmer and John Daly were both brought up and drunk down while we debated the merits of the Long Island, saw that Ragtime was in fact NOT Fiddler on the Roof, and very much wanted Vitamin CSI: Miami to be a thing. Where in the song Graduation was the fond remembrance of a knife fight? Even though the round

Oh Craft Pride, we had another great night.   Midnight Mass Debate dominated and got first place, with US Olympic Handball Team in second, and Plumbus and the Schleems in third.   We started off with Round 1, which was a current events round. Round 2 was a fun twist on our regular music round, I played 8 clips of songs that had been covered by Twinkle Twinkle Little Rockstar and you had to tell me the original artist and song title. Round 3 was a speed round (which I know is always a favorite amongst quizzers) you had two and a half minutes to name 8 of the 12 elements on the periodic table that start

Did They Run Out of Equines Already?
Jimmy Williams

A tough quiz tonight! I think it may be the lowest score I’ve ever personally gotten when preparing a quiz. (I always take them myself beforehand because I’ve become a trivia addict.) However, I also got the sense that the quizzers enjoyed the challenge. We had 9 strong teams doing their best to best each other. Two teams (The Not Happenings and Ryam Zanne) were sitting at the same table. They ensured me they were not interested in helping each other, and at the end of the night I quite believed them. By the end of the night they were being quite competitive with each other. (Or maybe it developed before then?) I usually

Only 3 weeks in and I'm proud to have a friendly collection of repeat quizzers. (Well, there's one quizzer who gave me the  'two-fingers-pointing-at-her-eyes-and-then-at-me-slash-I'm-watching-you" thing but I took that as, "I want to win a bonus question pint glass really, really bad so I can use it to drop my cig ashes into it". Othewise, a great night with 8 teams and lots of fun. Congrats to first-timers, Snarf, who took home 2nd place, and team Brad Armpitt who's kicking ass and taking names. I feel like a proud Target employee, helping them to build their collection of glassware.

The Penultimate Countdown!
Dave

The rumors were indeed confirmed and this was the penultimate (ask your teacher friend) quiz at Evil Czech. We had a small turnout after last weeks cancellation and the rumors of our final show swirling about the week before that, but the teams were mighty! Although, people decided to leave before they got their prizes. In First Place was "Some People Workout For Muscles, We Workout Foreskin" and they got their prizes. In Second Place was "Make Quiz Night Great Again", apparently a protest group in favor of keeping the night going, HOWEVER, they decided to wander off before they got their prize! That moved the tailor made pun team of "Seams To Fit" to second place and they got their prizes

Jackie Treehorn treats objects like women, man.
Patrick

I think I wouldn’t be a very good teacher. As I score some quizzes, I can’t seem to bring myself to not give credit where I feel credit should be given. For instance: when a team clearly knows the answer, but decides to be funny instead of giving the right answer, I still give credit. I mean, how could you put “Shaving Ryan’s Privates” if you didn’t know the actual answer? Then I find myself caught and giving them the benefit of the doubt when the answer is funny and indicates they PROBABLY knew the right answer but just might have been trying to be funny, e.g. Jesus Christ and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat? Yep, that warrants a check mark. (Check marks

Sometimes, You Need a Net
Quizmaster Pio

Not like, The Net ... like the web.  You definitely need that all the time.  And also not the cyberthriller from the 90s, "The Net" starring Sandra Bullock.  You definitely need THAT all the time.  I mean a literal net.  A grid of rope weighed down at the ends for the purpose of trapping.  Sometimes you need that. Why do you need that?  I couldn't answer that.  I wish I could ask the person that left one outside the venue last night.  Yeah, there was a net just folded up and sitting on the curb.  Was someone throwing their net out?  I mean, I guess sometimes you need the net and then you make the decision that no, you do not need

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.
