Because I said so
Metal Gretel

One of the things I've learned as a quizmaster is to be blunt as fuck. Not necessarily mean, but you know... saying things honestly, humorously, and sticking to it. I've occasionally had odd ball requests and I just have to do my best to not laugh into peoples faces with a hearty "oh god no." I do my best. That was really just a weird aside. So I'm super excited about the next season of DWTS. It is a frequent subject of mine through blogs as I love drinking and writing critiques and judging celebrities as if I knew them or even cared about them. I'm hoping that the next season gets leaked on wikipedia soon. Literally the only thing I wish wikileaks would reveal. So last

Casablanca and S&M (Am I Missing a Cultural Reference?)
QM April

Do you ever have one of those days that just gets away from you? You know what I mean. Everything starts out okay, you hit the gym and get toasted from your instructor, and then things start going downhill. You have to cook three (relatively) simple entrees but they need to be done at the same time? Cue massive flailing and Swedish Chef levels of “Bork bork in dee pot”. Then that gets done and you have a dentist appointment. And, they forget about you in the chair so you legit decide you’re going to nap with the classic rock playing away in the background and when you wake up Freebird is STILL playing and you think, “damn, this must be what hell is like.”

April can be found all over town, if you look hard enough. Many fingers in many pies, that one.

It Was Good For Me, Was It Good For You?
JeffreyTanguay

Alright, loyal readers: it's time to do an informal poll. Did ya have fun last night? I sure did! Part of that has to do with the fact that I maaay have pregamed a bit before quiz, leading to an overall mischievous attitude, and a general lack of fuck-giving. And I enjoyed myself immensely.    To bad that I have no way to actually record your answers. Oh well!   We had a few new teams tonight to complement your familiar faces! Last night's quiz was pretty tough, and the scores reflected that. We had a few groupings of pretty close scores, and one major outlier: the notorious Usual Gang Of Idiots used a tactical

This is a bio:

I like to ride my motorcycle, even though other motorists scare the crap outta me.

I enjoy cooking, especially for friends. Alcohol is usually integral to this.

I read a lot, but mostly fiction. 

I have a crazy music collection. Music is awesome. Well, a lot of it at least.

I have seen tons of movies, and have a watched a few of those waaaay too many times.

I am just good enough at playing guitar to not completely suck at guitar.

I like getting to the tops of things, so climbing and hiking are my favorite outdoorsy stuff.

The New Girl... Minus the Bangs
Mattie

No one likes change but the vibrant teams at Old Pequilar tolerated it well. A new host is in the midst with a hankerin’ for mispronouncing Danish filmmakers and Greek translations. The troops rallied well through the slight butchering’s with a rousing game of “Drink for Mispronunciation” that left everyone feelin’ a little pequliar, in a good way. The night started out strong with great points for all teams in both rounds 1 and 2! The following rounds made boys into men and girl into only slightly less rugged men. The winners of the evening beamed strong though the night with first place being claimed by the dynamic Dune Buggy Attack Brigade

Heroin, A Story of Perseverance
Russel

It’s a comeback story for the ages. For years, potheads and tweakers had dominated the illicit drug trade. Cocaine had a powerful niche market. But heroin? Heroin was living in the past. Reminiscing back to the good-old-days. Back to 1995 when Kate Moss made it look oh-so-chic. Back when you’d go to your silverware drawer and couldn’t find a fucking spoon. So what happened? Well, no one quite knows why, but for a while, people were afraid to use needles. This irrational fear caused that china white, that brown sugar, that black tar to shrink into irrelevancy for over a decade. Like a crazy John Travolta waking up every morning thinking it was

That Many Candle is Against Fire Code
Jantz in Your Pants

It was Roger’s birthday last night.  I said he was 183 and I think I was off by a century.  I think he turned 80? The number isn’t really important.  What I would like to point out is that he likes coming to the quiz. He has been showing up for years.  He invites people to join his team if they have room.  He ALWAYS makes a point to tell me that I did a great job every week. I suspect he lies once a month. You all know he is a bit weird, but not in a bad way. Maybe weird isn’t the correct word….The way I think about it is that he is hanging out with people that are mostly 50 years younger than he is, assuming the average age of a quizzer is

Unbelievable! Nothing like this has ever happened before or will ever happen again!
Miles

I just want something crazy and exciting to happen at quiz. Is this how journalists feel? Churning out articles, week after week, the vast majority of them must seem like the same thing day after day. They call it a news cycle, after all. It probably doesn't take all that long before it starts seeming awfully... cyclical. And so they sensationalize. Whatever it takes to make the mundane and familiar seem momentous and new. Reasonable and accurate descriptions are useful for the historical record, but they make the days fade into each other and the writings about the days into one endless chronicle of minutia. When something is the “best,” though...

Miles got a college degree in acting, and look at him now! He's deftly avoided the pitfalls of riches and fame, and is still keepin' it real. So very real.

You can see him many weekends playing in Fullerton's beloved Improv Shmimprov comedy group.

Periodically, you can catch his work as a long time member of Rogue Artists Ensemble, bringing you masks, and puppets, and god-only-knows what else.

He's also currently the merch guy for the groundbreaking art-rock outfit known as The Residents.

He does parties, bar mitzvahs, weddings and what-have-you. Just don't ask what he does at them.

I perform a Geeks Who Drink quiz every Tuesday without fail. The place is I&I Brewing, and the time is 7pm.

I drank a Raspberry Strong Ale, then a Calypso Pale, both were delicious and refreshing. Here is how the quiz went. PEOW (Public Enemy Obi Wan) got the first and only perfect score in Round 2: Trading Places. The first audio round called for my quizzers to give me the song title and original artist for some covers by singers of these gender-bent covers. Here are the original artists and their songs Landslide by Fleetwood Mac, Blank Space by

So I might have said some things about the presidential democratic nominee. The opinion was solely based on her not knowing when the frelling election was. February… Really? Don’t get me wrong. I don’t want anyone to vote for Trump either. They are like the whole country is on “Let’s Make a Deal” and we get getting a zonk. Made me look into some of the independent candidates… yeah Not sure there are much better. We have candidates describing themselves as: a bus driver, former competitive gymnast (male), music lover, and my favorite The Real Grandmaster Jay. That is to just to name a few. Heck

ChristopheR2D2

Last night's quiz was a doozy indeed.  Much like honesty and legality seem to have eluded Hillary and the DNC, many of the correct answers from rounds 3 - 5 seem to have gotten away from a great many of us.  We're better than that, dammit!    Sadly, Shillary is not.  Seriously, her and DWS can go suck the world's most hefty bag of dicks.  Speaking of things that tripped us up... how the shit did more of you correctly identify a Taylor Swift cover than Fleetwood Mac's Landslide?!?!?  The fuck is wrong with the world?   C'mon guys, I love you all dearly & I know we can do better.  In fact, some of us did just that.

In Which You Do Math For Fun

There's one thing that you can't compete with, and that is sunny weather. Milwaukee is so starved for it most of the time, that when it comes around, is there literally anything else you'd like to be doing than just soaking in some rays? Well, in my case, it would be soaking in rays while also soaking in sunscreen. My curse. Anyway, let's get to the questions, and answers, and trivia in general! There were a lot of familiar faces tonight, and one face was closer than the others. Check the photo reel if you don't believe me.

"Castle Clinton?" Foretelling Much?
Gerry-oke

Hello, Brix @ Sunset Beach!  Another wonderful quiz under our belts and good times were had by all, yeah?  Okay, so look, I know this is a very contentious subject, and normally I shy away from political discussions, but this is one of the few places where I get to spout off a little bit.  It’ll be over soon; just bear with me (TWHS).  I’m no fan of Trump.  I think he’s an idiot, I think a lot of his followers don’t realize just how much of an idiot he is and, bless their hearts, I have yet to see an articulate, well thought-out argument from any of them in support of him.  Moreover, besides being an opportunistic asshole, I think Trump

Wet Hot American Summer Blackout
QM Conrad S

This was my second experience with the great group at Surfside Tap Room, and my first flying solo. First off, let me say, you guys rock. The teams were very competitive, and 1st place went back and forth between Beerbliophiles, 3 People and That’s What Speed Do all night. I have gone with the ‘Wet Hot American Summer Blackout’ for a few reasons. As Californians, we are generally spoiled with very good weather. That spoilage does not apply to the weather right now. It is hot and humid (I can hear the younger me who used to live in Washington, DC chastising me….I know). Didn’t stop you amazing beautiful quizzers.

Or maybe that last one was just me. I actually googled how many zeroes were in 1.4 million.   We had four wonderful teams, even though Team Del Valle Mamas thought we only ran for an hour and

I believe that any mundane task could be improved with the addition of a Star Wars costume. Driving a car? Mowing the lawn? Shopping at Costco? Add a Darth Vader costume, INSTANT HILARITY.

I am a bookish geek (I read a lot, I randomly edit grammar in advertisements, and I quote Douglas Adams quite a lot).

I attend several geeky conventions every year, either as a rabid fangirl or a staff member.

I love inventing plays-on-words (I'M A PUN ROCKER), and I mock whatever movie I'm watching in the theatre (MST3K-style).

I love costumes- Pride and Prejudice Zombie, Black Knight, Captain Hammer or Female!Moist, Velma Dinkley, AVPM Snape, etc.

My motto is: you don't know if you'll epically fail or epically win at something until you give it a shot.

Remember: prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse, avoid the Bog of Eternal Stench, don't piss off the internet, and most importantly, Don't Panic.
