Flat Stanley: Arousal Killer
RobotNarwhal

So, I had no idea who “Flat Stanley” was.  Considering that arousal killer round 4, I seriously thought we must have made it up.  Either that, or I was expecting some sort of Mr. Bill inspired dead guy dropped in to contrived situations in order to make me spit beer out my nose.  BUT NO!  Lo, Flat Stanley is actually the real hero of a kinder lit series.  I was expecting a Weekend at Bernie’s parody, and I got a character who is…really creepy actually.   It seems Flat Stanley was once a “normal boy,” but he was accidentally flattened when a bulletin board (of all things) fell on him in his sleep.  It was

Maslow's Heirarchy of Needs
Sean

This Monday was a highly contested affair at Dylan Murphy’s with a second straight week of last round drama! Round 1 tested our contestants on this week in August, with events occurring throughout history in the final week of August. Three teams came prepared on their August knowledge, earning the full eight points! Round 2, the first audio round, challenged our teams to name the song and the artist for each song clip, each pertaining to one of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. I’m also surprised we went with “Gonna Make You Sweat” for “excretion”.

When in Doubt: Sex
Corrina Briggs

Last night at Oskar Blues we shared great beer, great food, and lots of semi-dirty quiz questions. It all started in Round 2 when all of the song titles could be related to physiological needs, sex being one of the needs given for example. It got interesting when team Trivia on a School Night answered that the title of every song they didn’t know was simply just Sex. Not a bad strategy if you have no clue, I guess. Trivia on a School Night also brought some youngsters, even though they know full well the risks. One of those risks was exhibited when we got to the bonus question for our boner-kill round. When asked what the four

Hello Sherlock’s Baker St. Pub!   Another huge Monday night crowd this week! I know I say that I’ll eventually get over it, but that doesn’t seem to be happening any time soon. Big, big thanks to all of you who came out to join us. Before I go any further, I’ll go ahead and address a question I was asked a couple of times on my way out tonight: YES, we WILL be having quiz on Labor Day. Keep that in mind as you make your plans for the three-day weekend! Also, I might host quiz in a skirt again. As it turns out, I rather like them.   Alright, moving on! What did we learn this week? *

Hey one and all! Welcome to the Draft Station!! Ugh, lemme just get my sadness it off the way now: I am beyond bummed that Gene Wilder passed away today. His movies were a big part of my upbringing, so we've definitely lost another legend this year. I changed my intro song to "Pure Imagination" in honor of Mr. Wilder. Sigh... Okay, anyway... On to the meat and potatoes of my blog. The weather has been super nice lately which is what I believe caused such an influx in attendance tonight!! 15 teams! That's stellar! A lot of veteran teams as well as new/"dabbled once or twice" teams. In either case, it was awesome to see so many people at once quizzing it up. I just wish I

(It has the word "county" right in the name!) I want to thank Adam from our winning team of the evening, The Waco Kids, who was celebrating a birthday that evening!

Atlanta Has Had Both Housewives and the Olympics
St. Jimmy

I am kind of glad that Bravo’s Real Housewives is running out of major cities and is starting to film in weirder cities. Don’t get me wrong, the people are awful no matter where they are, but don’t you just get a little joy watching the Real Housewives of Dallas and someone mentions Plano. How often are you going to get the chance to hear Plano on national television? While we’re here, let’s brainstorm some new locations for the Real Housewives series. Real Housewives of New Orleans would be great as they would all be a drunken mess. Let’s have some hipster housewives with the Real Housewives of Portland. We could get some real rugged housewives and do Real

Pure Imagination
Jeremy "Murder She Wrote" C

Growing up, one of the movies I watched a ton was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I would watch it every time it aired. I always wanted to go into the chocolate factory. The place was magical and it's made of candy. I am heartbroken at the loss of Gene Wilder. He is one of those actors that you will struggle to find a bad movie he was in. Everything he did with Mel Brooks was amazing. Everything he did with Richard Pryor was hilarious. He entertained people for the sheer joy of entertainment. He was a Wisconsin legend and made us all proud. The words to express my sadness are not there. I have no words. Thank you for making my childhood magical. Thank you for making me believe in Oompa Loompas.

Hello, my name is Jeremy and I'm a geek who drinks. What does it mean to be a geek who drinks? I have random knowledge on things like music. I can quote Pulp Fiction like it's no one's business. On my GPS Darth Vader tells me where to go. That's the fun part. The bad part is I also drink. When I drink, I write blogs that have the word "fuck" in it a lot. I make up stories of things that happened in my mind. I also delete my own bio and really don't remember doing it. Thankfully though, I never sucked dick for coke. That was Bob Saget. 

The moral of the story, it's ok to be a geek who drinks, in fact I encourage it. I encourage you to come down to my venue on a Monday and drink it out with me. I'll quiz you, you give me right answers, and don't be a dick and shout anything out.

This was not the Harry Potter quiz...
Hadji

While I certainly appreciated the enthusiasm, Wizard on the Streets Dementor in the Sheets, the Harry Potter quiz was on Saturday, so your fantastic team name had no relevance to tonight’s quiz.  Speaking of team names, our champions, Lauren’s Big Dumb Face both made fun of one of their teammates and varied their name throughout the quiz with iterations like Lauren’s Big Dumb Lovely Face, Lauren’s Big Dumb Exceptional Face, and of course Lauren’s Big (in a Nice Way) Dumb Face.  The Harry Potter team took second tonight, which slightly made up for the fact that they apparently forgot to go to the quiz on Saturday.  Tangent:

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!

Happy Fantasy Football Season
Cap'n Brendan

It’s draft season! I’ve had two fantasy football drafts in the last 36 hours, and another one planned for a couple of days from now. Football isn’t my first love – it’s baseball. But I will give respect to football on account of the fact that fantasy football has given it mainstream relevance that baseball – the originator of fantasy sports – has never achieved. People love watching football because, thanks to fantasy, they are emotionally invested in players on teams they’d never otherwise have heard of. Five years ago, it was easy to dominate the casual fan at fantasy football. The lack of interest and widely available “insider”

Concerning Teletubby Bukkake and the Abyss Gazing Back
Handsome Mike

“So if you Google search ‘Teletubby Bukkake,’ it doesn’t pull up what you’d expect. It’s pretty disappointing actually. There’s a lot of pictures of bukkake, and a lot of pictures of Teletubbies. But none of Teletubby Bukkake.”   This is the kind of shit you have to deal with working quiz nights. Better still, this was a single person team. As Friedrich Nietzsche once said, "[...]if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee.”

Three new(ish) teams? I love when we get newcomers on the prison yard. It shakes things up in all the best ways. A Team Has No Name, Touching Cloth, and Vagenda of Manicide all stomped onto the field ready to rock. This quiz really had some odd ball variables thrown in the mix and the questions were way out of my depth; Props to every team who stayed afloat. Domino, one of the house champs, started out strong and stayed the fan favorite throughout the game. If I was a gambling man, I would have staked my fortune on them, but lucky for me, I'm broke as hell. Right when I thought they sealed it, Vagenda snatched
