Fairytales and Fantasy Drafts
The Bearded One

Everybody loves a fairy tale. It hits all the great storytelling goals: there's allegory, morality, fantasy, wish-fulfillment, and children being torn limb-from-limb like the subject of a Cannibal Corpse song. Wait, what? That last one seems a bit questionable, but it's definitely what we opened last night's quiz with.That fairy tale round had 3 perfect scores because I was lenient about The Princess & The Frog, but round 2 was the big breakaway for Charm School Dropouts. I think this is 3 quizzes in a row where I've seen them ace and joker music rounds. That's right, someone had actually heard

On the 2002 Album “Shaman,” what Skin-melting Liquid Performed with…
The Freshmaker (QMOTY*IV)

Let’s face it, some nights, I’m just not on my game. Whether it because I can no longer tell the difference between a nursery rhyme and a fairy tale, or the fact that I learned how to pronounce that one country from a TV show, my skills can be called in to question. Good thing for me that I know how to add some sizzle to the steak that is our Monday night pub quiz at Glass Half Full – Lakeline! I’ll sing for you like an 18th century castrati… I’ll teach you how to say dirty words in Japanese… I’ll even shank my human lover to remove

Nobody Wins With Adam Sandler
Seanaghan

After our weekly quiz, someone who spent the night just kind of hanging out, not even playing, made a point of complimenting us all on how tough the quiz actually is. This means that, not only are you all good-looking and funny, but you’re all wicked smart, too! I knew there were reasons I liked you all.As for the quiz itself, you knew it was going to be an interesting night when we started out with some twisted events from alternate versions of fairytales. It was a rough night for Jamelius Anderoons and Mondays Suck (or was that team name prophetic for the quiz results?), with The Dirty Randys not faring much better. C3PBros

PeteGilmore

Welcome back to quiz Monday's at Calhoun's rooftop.  I missed you all all summer long, except for those times where I came back to visit and enjoy the beautiful views, delicious food, and great drinks.  After a summer long hiatus we brought back the quiz last night to a great crowd of geeks.  As it turns out I could have stayed out on the roof, the rain held off but I cowered inside all night anyway. It was my mistake to think that the scores were going to be higher because you all now have another year of college under your belt.  The scores were ummm not good.  We still had to crown someone a winner though Congrats to Trivia Beersuit for winning

Undoing Disney’s Damage
Extra Terresticle

Disney’s damage? What could I possibly mean by that? I’ll explain. Many of the fairy tales Disney adapted for film were much darker in their original versions. Take The Little Mermaid for example. In the original story by Hans Christian Andersen, the Little Mermaid does want to be human and have legs, does make a deal with the Sea Witch where she gives up her tongue for the ability to walk, and does have to get a prince to marry her. But that’s where the similarities end. In the OG version, if the prince marries another woman, the Little Mermaid will perish and dissolve into sea foam. Unfortunately for her, the prince chooses someone else, dooming her to die.

Making Fairy Tales Fun Again
JacobNusbaum

Hello and welcome to the Monday Night Geeks Who Drink at MVP’s blog. Tonight we had a round that exposed fairy tales for what they really are. Stories to scare children into behaving. Kids’ books today just don’t do that. They’re all like “try new things” or “plant a tree”. Some of Aesop’s stuff is okay in the “don’t let yourself get swindled or you’ll get stabbed in the face by a scorpion” sorta way, but it’s just not the same as the Grimm fairy tales. Maybe they wouldn’t be as effective today as they were a century ago. Kids are exposed to too much imagery with TV and the internet and video games. I

Don't Let The Bed Bugs Bite
The Comedy Freek

Hey Party People, Thanks to round one last night, with it’s theme of Sleep Tight, Kids, I think I may have figured out what’s wrong with my generation. You see, I described a version and my Quizzers had to name the fairy tale or kids story. It made me realize just how much Disney has butchered the real stories. And how fucked up Grimm Fairy Tales really are. These stories are morbid. Suicide by pulling your legs off? Cutting off your toes and heals to fit in a shoe? Bears ripping apart little girls and a princess setting a frog on fire while trying to chop off it’s head? Yuck. We had these stories read to us before bed. (nightly!) And when we were younger,

Wake Up, It's (Almost) The First Of The Month
Tenacious E

Monday again! A new week brings forth a new round of quiz!   This quiz started out a little gruesome and macabre, which I love. Horror movies are quite possibly my favorite genre of movies. The horror-loving community lost Wes Craven this week. He is the genius behind Nightmare on Elm Street. Last House on the Left and The Hills Have Eyes. Seems fitting to start out with questions about not-so child friendly fairy tales and serial killers.    I was also excited to see Atlanta in not one but two questions! It’s been about 6 months since I moved here but I still have to rep the A! Magic

29 on the 29th
Kavi Kardoshian

This weekend was my birthday! I didn't mention it at last night's quiz because I didn't want to disrupt things too much, but it was a good birthday despite the fact that I had to spend most of the weekend moving out of my apartment. Manual labor isn't an ideal way to spend one's birthday, but I survived. Party next weekend. It was my golden birthday, so I decided to look up some interesting birthday conventions from around the world. The golden birthday, as you likely know, is also known as the lucky birthday, champagne birthday or star birthday and occurs when you turn the age of your birth date (i.e. 29 on the 29th). I guess that means this is a lucky year for

And I would do anything for love
I'd run right into hell and back
I would do anything for love
I'd never lie to you and that's a fact
But I'll never forget the way you feel right now,
Oh no, no way
And I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Some days it don't come easy
Some days it don't come hard
Some days it don't come at all, and these are the days that never end
Some nights you're breathing fire
Some nights you're carved in ice
Some nights you're like nothing I've ever seen before or will again

Maybe I'm crazy, but it's crazy and it's true
I know you can save me, no-one else can save me now but you

As long as the planets are turning
As long as the stars are burning
As long dreams are coming true
You'd better believe it, that I would do

Anything for love
And I'l be there until the final act
I would do anything for love, and I'll take a vow and seal a pact
But I'll never forgive myself if we don't go all the way, tonight
I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do that

Some days I pray for silence
Some days I pray for soul
Some days I just pray to the god of sex and drums and rock 'n' roll
Some nights I lose the feeling
Some nights I lose control
Some nights I just lose it all when I watch you dance and the thunder rolls

Maybe I'm lonely, that's all I'm qualified to be
That's just one and only, the one and only promise I can keep

As long as the wheels are turning
As long as the fires are burning
As long as your prayers are coming true
You'd better believe it, that I would do

Anything for love
And you know it's true and that's a fact
I would do anything for love, and there'll never be no turning back
But I'll never do it better than I do it with you. So long, so long
I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that
No, no, no, I won't do...

I would do anything for love
Anything you've been dreaming of, but I just won't do...

But I'll never stop dreaming of you ev'ry night of my life, no way
I would do anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Will you raise me up? will you help me down?
Will you get me right out of this godforsaken town?
Will you make it all a little less cold?

Will you hold me sacred? Will you hold me tight?
Can you colourise my life, I'm so sick of black and white?
Can you make it all a little less old?

Will you make me some magic with your own two hands?
Will you build and emerald city with these grains of sand?
Can you give me something I can take home?

Will you cater to every fantasy I got?
Will you hose me down with holy water, if I get too hot?
Will you take me places I've never known?

After a while you'll forget everything
It was a brief interlude and a midsummer night's fling
And you'll see that it's time to move on

I know the territory, I've been around
It'll all turn to dust and we'll all fall down
Sooner or later you'll be screwing around

Anything for love
Oh, I would do anything for love
I would do anything for love, but I won't do that
No, I won't do that

Our audio round on the ending theme music to TV shows threw a lot of you for a loop.  I've never seen Bojack Horseman, no one seems to think I should have. Because its on Netflix and I give those shows some time to cultivate a general audience reaction to determine if my valuable and limited time can be pried away from my ninth rewatching of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.   But what happens at the movie theater? How do you know to stick around for the super cool bonus scene at the end?

So, I confessed last night that an early love of mine was The Phantom of the Opera.  And I’m not talking about the cool, old-school horror movie.  I’m talking about the cheesy, over-the-top late 1980s Andrew Lloyd Weber production that swept the nation.  Oh, I listened to that double CD box set over and over and over.  I poured over the libretto.  I even made my dad grudgingly take my mom and I to see the production when it was at the Buell the first time it ran there.  And he LOVED it.  Because it’s a great fucking production, and I don’t care what anyone says.  The only thing remotely wrong with the plot in my eyes

It was a sad day in Western New York as the Buffalo Bills said good bye to a fan favorite, Fred Jackson was waved by the team Monday morning. I found out about it as I was returning to Buffalo from an incredible weekend in Niagara-On-The-Lake, Ontario. My girlfriend and I were almost to the US boarder when we turned on the local 24 hour sports programming station and heard the news. I took a minute to sink in. I looked to my right and say my girlfriend crying. I was shocked and a little taken a back but no were near as frustrated as when the tam traded away some of my all-time favorite Bills, Marshawn Lynch and Stevie Johnson. I am glad the the winning team was Fred
