Doug and Duck
QM Jarrad

I have to say, I’m loving the Lamplighter for our quizzes. The staff are great, the taps are fantastic and two of the groups brought in their dogs. One was a super cute cocker spaniel who I called Doug. The other was a beautiful basset hound I named Duck. So Doug and Duck settled in for a fierce night of pub quizzin’. Round 2 is always a good indicator how old I am because there are usually a handful of artists I have never heard of. But this time, only 2 artists had the pleasure of being completely unknown to me. Mountain and Fetty Wap. Huzzah!! Also, the crowd had a decidedly pro-Britney, anti-Christina vibe as boos rained down when they realized that Christina leads

Hey you, how are you? Thanks for clicking my name. Very thoughtful of you.

So, let's see, what do you want to know? Hmm. I took a four month trip around the world last year and saw really cool cities like Bangkok, Phnom Penh, Amman, Budapest, Sofia and Reykjavik. I like beer a lot. I've been drinking nothing but Founders All Day IPA lately since they released the 15 pack for $16!

I also recently discovered the Professor Blastoff podcast and have become obsessed with it. So at any given time, I'm either listening to it or thinking about something funny that happened in one of the episodes. And yes, I can rap just using my body.

Fap Queen Is My Stage Name
Packrit

We laughed hard. We didn't cry. No one got mad. It was a perfect quiz despite, again, my stumbling over some of the words. But, maybe that's my thing now? I sure hope not.Current Events was y'all's jam. Songs and artists about Queens are not. And neither was Round Eight. I think the highest score on the final round was a 9! It was a tough quiz overall to say the least but y'all persevered and did your best. There was lots of vying for first and each score break saw a different team in the top spot. Fallopian Tuba Gooding Junior took an early lead with a successful Round Two and a timely joker but the rest of the quiz eroded that

If you had the great good fortune to be with us tonight then I know you had a grand time.  It was a special night to be sure.  I had a LARGE group of random local employees at a table that I coaxed into playing along and that lead us to have 18 teams at the height of the night, but also lead us to having a sane and organized quiz! I said my goodbyes to ANOTHER team member from my friends, Whitney and Nick's, team.  Good to know you Kevin! Keep in touch! The grade I would give this one is a nice B. Not too hard and not too easy but good fair trivia. R1 – Newsy stuff from this week. R2 – QUEENly songs. R3 – More is more. R4 – Phy

Remember Singled Out? That was a fun time!
MikeSchramm

Hennessey's was full of the sounds of pub quiz tonight, as a nicely sized group of teams came out to challenge their wits and memories against each other. The first round of the night was all about z-words, though zombies didn't make an appearance, strangely. Zucchini did, however, as the translation from the French "courgette," and Zendaya also got a mention (from the self-titled album of the same name). Zelda showed up in there, too, as the main squeeze of Link. Shouldn't the series be called the Adventures of Link? Actually, the sequel was, so maybe someone's already had that thought before. Later rounds stumped our players about books of the Old Testament (there isn't a Judges

What are you talking about a night with no in-jokes for team names? I know! It's was weird for me too! But this week I actually have things to throw to our overlords as nominations for the nationally ranked Team Name of the Week! That's right...you have to impress me enough first so I think they'll stand up to the caliber of nationally ranked teams we've crowned through the years. You saw last week's winner, right?

I Can't Say "Metamorphosis"

But darned if I didn't try 4 times! Eh, English. It's a vixen.   What did we learn this week?   - 30 Seconds to Mars, featuring beautifully-haired Oscar winner Jared Leto sounds like "every breathy 90s band", according to S&M&M's.   - Kenan Thompson is the most senior member of the current SNL crew, and the longest-running African American cast member who also appeared on Nickelodeon's "All That" (okay, so it's also true without the Nick part).   - Louis XIV reigned for a fuck of a long time.   - A thing I didn't learn in watching

Hey, everybody! I'm still slightly/not really anymore/a little bit new-ish to Denver. I hail from the great Commonwealth of Virginia (the Mother of Presidents). I've played piano since I was 3, though you'll probably never hear it. I prefer to squander my talents. What else... I've been to 44 states (WI, ND, SD, ID, MT, and AK to go). I'm also a huge David Letterman fan, having seen the show live 20 times before its end, so this is a tough time for me. I don't wanna talk about it. I'm also on the Twitter @micahwhite and at Facebook /micahwhite. Anyway, enough about me. See you at the quiz!

I've never seen so many team names having to do with a dead pussy.
Ain't nothing like the Riehl thang!

WELCOME TO WEDNESDAY!  Sorry. I didn't mean to shout. I'm just excited about starting the quiz on Wednesday, for the first time at Dublin's Street Pub....ever! The change must have created some kind of magnetic tropical force of nature that caused Twilight Zone-like effects. First of all, it rained unlike anything I've ever seen in Las Cruces and I've been here since 1999. I  also have to admit that I was working on 2 hours sleep, which may be fine for some people, but it bit me in the rear. It wasn't too bad.

After a brief hiatus to do some remarkable things in the name of entertainment, I returned to The Blind Donkey to quiz the shit out of you.  And by God, it was a tight race.  Hella tight.  Your Mom’s Chest Hair sprung to an early lead with the sole music round joker.  I accused folks of Shazaming – not them, just other folks – and that actually became a team name.  I’d much rather celebrate the engagement of two quizzers, Teo and Emma, than the accusations of cheatery.  I can’t have eyes everywhere, which is why I rely on quizzers to police each other.  Plus, seriously, if you get joy out of cheating

We almost made curfew! (Guys, if you're reading this and come out next week, I'll try to get it done quicker, but can't promise anything. More teams = longer game. Good luck this season!)   Highlights: --A table of GIANTS. Good to see you guys, seriously. You're closet

Fair Idea, Flawed Execution
Gryffindork

As we noted in our quiz last night, militiamen and other well-intentioned people have begun taking their guns and ammo and standing watch outside of military recruitment centers thanks to the shootings in Tennessee. While I admire the sentiment, I doubt things would go the way these guys imagine. People who carry out these attacks typically don’t intend to survive them, so I doubt the presence of these unofficial guards is going to deter them from attacking. Here’s how it’s most likely to go down. Scenario 1: Your average crazyperson isn’t likely to be wearing a nametag saying, “Hi, my name is Lone Gunman,” so with properly baggy attire and/or a

My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize. He would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy, the sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical: summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds...pretty standard, really. At the age of 12 I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen, a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum; it's breathtaking. I suggest you try it.

Under Ice, Baby
QM Colleen

I was watching the Today Show and they were playing the baseline of a song. All of the anchors (hosts?) thought it was Ice Ice Baby but then realized it was Under Pressure instead. One said "This is what sampling has done to my brain!" Correct. This is your brain on soft plagiarism. It's a little strange how sampling in pop songs works. It can revive a song that got kicked under the bed and/or it can ruin a song for a generation. Sometimes, you just don't need to hear Kanye rapping over a beautiful work. If you're so awesome, Kanye, stop stealing crap! Write it yourself, fake Jesus. Also ruining songs for generations? Overplay. Seriously guys, make it stop. There is

Colleen is a Rochester native with a heart of gold. Icy, icy gold. You can find her at Wall Street every Tuesday night and occasionally on a stage somewhere else in Rochester. Doing theater. Not stripping. She would be the most awkward of strippers. Think Danny Devito on Friends and then quadruple the awkward. Got the mental image? Good. She also plays Ultimate Frisbee and if you are vewy,vewy quiet you can catch her galavanting around RIT campus.

Remember when I said that we were probably getting a dog? Well, it happened.   When I returned home from trivia last Wednesday, my wife was well on her way to filling out an application for a puppy. The next day we got a phone call. Saturday evening we returned to our house with a brand new dog. And a shit ton of dog supplies. (Expeeeeensive.) Her name is Amelia. She is adorable. And I will bring her to the quiz when I know she'll be able to just lay down and not chew on shit.    You know what I love? When people cheer for answers that they got correct. You know what I love even more? When those answers are really terrible things. Like "muscular

  The title of today’s blog comes to us from one of our new quizzers, who despite personally winning three out of the five bonus pints, refused all them saying: “ I don’t want the free beer, I just want to show i’m smarter than everyone.” And with that egotistical, yet responsible alcoholic-ly approach approach to quiz, we were off!   It was another exciting night at Cortland’s Garage for the third chapter of our quizzing saga.

You don’t want to hear my body talk after I eat Mexican food, Olivia Newton-John!

They came from near and far, some ready for the battle of what they might know and others giving it a shot to keep me from begging them to play….I mean playing out of curiosity. I brought my body guard along, just in case it got too crazy (my 6 year old daughter) at Echo Brewing, If you weren’t aware that Stephen Hawking became an alien hunter of sorts, Dr. Seuss is still publishing work beyond the grave, and that you can earn $15 an hour to flip burgers in New York City….in 2018, well now you are!   Glad to know SOMEBODY knew who the hell Fetty Wap is, because I was clueless and I’M the one with

Random facts and such about me:

- Been told by several people I have met through the years that I have a THICK and NOTICABLE Colorado accent! Yeah, I don't get it either!

- Turned down a gig of driving the band Twopointeight for 2 months on the Floggign Molly tour cause I was waiting to return to a job I was on medical leave from....Yup, I am still kicking myself, cause I didn't go back to that job until about 5 months later. 

- I wish every day that Courtney Cox would get over herself and allow for the Misfits of Science to be released on DVD in the U.S. At least I hear she is part of why it won't be released cause she is embaressed by it.....I wonder if she has ever seen her show Cougar Town....THATS embaressing!

- Went to a Model & Talent convention and met talent scouts, agents, etc that would make even Simon Cowell cry!!!

- I believe in ghosts cause I have experienced them, even at an adult bookstore I worked at once. 

- Wrote, directed, starred, designed set, did promo work, etc. for a performance art show I did with an amazing cast and crew for a student production in College. It was called "Freak Boy Speaks!"

- I am also an artist! Paintings (Acrylics), drawing, etc. I am also a writer, which kind of shows when I do my blogs. 

- Much rather meet celebs than to get their autographs or pictures with them.

- Worked concert security for a short time in AZ. STILL never got paid for that N'sync concert!!!! 

- Can put myself in the game of 6 six degrees of Kevin Bacon. 

- Finished up my final season as mascot for the 2010 WFTDA Champions, the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls. Will miss being Wolfie the wolf, but will continue watching roller derby!

- Worked on a cruise ship, where I got to meet people from all over the world, and met my wife (she was a fellow crew member, not a passenger cause that is against the rules!).

- Followed the Vans Warped tour for 2 weeks in 2004.....One hell of an adventure.

- Rode on an airplane at 1 a.m. from Phoenix, AZ to Dallas TX with a bunch of Wrestlers from "WWE", back in 2003. Included the Undertaker, Edge, Matt Hardy, Billy "the Ass man" Gunn, Eddie Gurerro, and many more.

- Once worked at the post office on my college campus. Ask me why one WOULD and COULD go mad from working at such a place. 

- I only like bacon or cole slaw when in the mood.

- Once performed with a group from Second City back in College with fellow Improv group members at the school. 

- Worked at Ed Debevic's in AZ. If you don't know, then google it or ask Jeeves (he is still around, isn't he?).

- Much rather be at a coffee shop with a pen or pencile and a journal or drawing pad than a laptop.....which I use as a Quiz Master! We get along......for now. 

-Aside from my mascot alter ego, I have another alter ego when I perform on stage with a band. His name is Elder Grimlee. He was once a logo for AZ band, the Elders UK, but now searches for his own band. But the alter egos don't stop there.....several more exist. 

- I was born 1 month late!!!! Remember, this was back in 1976! So a C-section was not an option. Plus, can you blame a guy.....FREE room and board!!!

- Mystery Science Theater 3000 is one of my ALL time favorite shows and when I am stressed, sad, or bummed, I just put on one of my MST3K DVDs and all is right with the world and no one dies! I also believe that GWD should do a MST3K themed quiz!

- I don't care for Netflix due to some issues with their service. BRING BACK MY BLOCKBUSTER VIDEO!!!!!!

- Find it funny that when I was about 19 years old, I hoped to have a full tattoo body suit by the age of 30. I am 38 and have 6. I am such a slacker.

- My Mom can beat up your Mom, Dad, buddies you street fight with and ALMOST threw down with the late Fabulous Muhla! I am her baby by oy, so watch it, unless you mention sympathy for my being born late then you have won her over. 

- Made a collapsable dance cage with my brother for a roller derby girl from the league I mascot(ed) for (she DJed with another DJ and they wanted a dance cage).....still got the pictures! No clue what happened to it, hoping someone is go-go dancing their heart out in it!

Today I tried to pick up my pace a little as next week I need to ensure that we are completely done and wrapped up by 9:30for an event.  Sadly much like most of our teams, I have some difficulty keeping on top of things in the final rounds.  Failing at Everything looked like strong hopefuls tonight but with only a sum total of 5 points in the last 3 rounds toppled from first down to sixth.  Sassy Pants Again were mounting a strong comeback game (with a slight trip up in round three, turns out 50/50 choices are not their thing), but with only 7 total points in the last 3 rounds couldn’t escape their
