Guys. I was having the best time last night. Because Burg & Barrel truly was the fappiest place of earth. Eating tots out of a brown paper bag. Kicking ass with a great playlist. I was on fire last night. Seriously, hilarious. I mean, way more than normal. Ok fine, I thought I was hilarious and was cracking myself up. Even with a little extra time dedicated to round 3 and 26 teams to explain it to, it was totally fine. We sat tight and learned

Bob Dylan is not Simon or Garfunkel
Bill Murray

Tonight’s quiz lacked a Randy,  and I’ll be honest, it was truly sad because of that. On the way back from work at the train station I heard some strange man calling my name. At first, I panicked and thought that I had interrupted the space time continuum. Luckily, it was just Sam from My Friends Hate Me telling me that he would be at the quiz tonight. Why is he such a nice guy? Who made him? I bet his parents are fluffy, happy, midwestern ducklings who live on a rainbow in the south of France. Thank goodness for Sam. Without Sam, his team would never know all five members of N’Sync, first and last names. Without a full beard,

The Broken Computer Quiz and Jeff's Final Wednesday
Reef

Tonighs quiz was bitter sweet. We gathered around our tables, regulars being moved by early, newer, eager teams and the late comers, The Towels, sat right by me at a makeshift table and tested my blackness throughout the night. It was a great night in the sense we had an amazing twelve teams show out and compete with ties all night keeping things hot, but it was Jeff the managers last Wednesday at the Hop and we bid him farewll.  Once things were underway, it was a brawl! We had some teams makea great run at the top three and then that round five caused dome friction as some teams landed all eight possible points and a few struggled. You all witnessed my computer failures this

If my Bio is lacking, feel free to give me suggestions as I plan on being a level 65 Quiz master in no time!!

Latin: The New Sanskrit
RyanSchofield

Since when has September becoming the hottest month of the year?  That's all I could think throughout the day.  Luckily, Scotland Yard Pub has made some great improvements to the air conditioning, so we were all quite comfortable during the quiz.   Things might get a little uncomfortable from time to time when I'm overly thorough with my instructions and people still don't understand me, but that's neither her nor there. I'm not gonna lie, but I cringed in horror when I got the e-mail to download this quiz and was given a disclaimer on Round 3.  However, I loved every second of Round 3.  In this round players were given a the top and bottom items

My Kind of World
Carlos

It is said in Norse mythology there is a goat who produces four kinds of booze from its teats for all accepted into Valhalla to drink. Two of those teats provide beer. Just know that when you all from World of Beer pass into the next realm, I hope this is waiting for you on the other side. Except maybe it’s not a goat? I don’t know, I feel we can improve on the situation of provision of things to imbibe in the otherworld. Anyway, your place rocks, World of Beer! And QM Audrey and I were rather impressed by your selection of beer (not to mention your pretzels the size of human torsos). Felt so good to see all those enthusiastic quizzers and adorable puppies!

Hail Craven, Full of Grace
Kavi Kardoshian

Hey there, Highball! My being there last night was somewhat of a last-minute switcheroo, but I was happy to do it! We had a great quiz full of movie stuff, video games and John suffering from multiple strokes. Because of his recent demise, we had quite a bit of quizzing on the topic of Wes Craven. Wes Craven is one of those directors whose stuff I don't feel very acquainted with. As a kid, and really up until I was about 24, I never watched many scary movies. I couldn't handle them when I was young and used to stay up terrified all night for days after watching something scary, so I avoided the classic like A Nightmare on Elm Street

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

Girl I'm Gonna Make You Sweat
BenBernstein

It is a hot hot mess in Rochester NY. I'm not talking about all the wind blowing out of Lovely Warren's mouth (topical++). No, I'm just referring to the high 80 degree temps we're having with the humidity of a boiling lobster pot. See... I've been gone all Summer. Turns out, in the Pacific Northwest and Colorado, humidity is not really a thing.  It gets hot, but then it drops down to the low 60's every night. How hard would it be for our fair city to just simply PICK UP, and go take over...say... Colorado Springs? Oust their mayor, put in ours. Boot the cops and replace them with the fine RCPD. Hell, we can bring our hobos and vagrants and let them scrap it out with the local

I really love my job, family, and friends. My parole officer would agree I'm no longer a threat to myself or others. 

I was born and bred in Rochester NY. This city is charming. I've come to really appreciate all the hidden gems around town. There's nothing better than spending a cold saturday morning at the public market sipping a cup of coffee and doing a crossword puzzle with my close friends. 

Against better judgement and doctors' orders, I love the Buffalo Bills. It'll work out in my favor eventually. 

Geeks Who Drink is seriously the best pub quiz I've been a part of. I love it.

Quiz on Me, Take me Quiz
Sean Franson

For people who don't live in Portland, or, more likely, for people who are new to Portland, or my parents, the weather this time a year can be a tad unpredictable. It's common to joke that both here and Seattle get nothing but rain, and there's some of that, but this time of year we get temperatures in the 70s or so, and rain. It's also worth noting that we have a lack of air conditioning. In other words, we rely on what's going on around us. Most places have heaters, but it's pretty rare to be in a residence that can be kept perpetually cool.   We're lucky with our apartment; it's well insulated and has a door that opens to a deck, with a screen door. So we can keep that

I'm so excited to be hosting Pub Quiz for Geeks who Drink! I moved to Portland 4 years ago with my wife, Gayle, to attend grad school at PSU.

Let's Get Weird
Larry

I always look forward to Wednesday! It is always a blast hanging out with everyone at Baker St. I was glad to be back this week. We learned a couple things at quiz last night. We learned that many of us did not know the entire title to Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness’s song “Cecilia and the Satellite”. We also learned that English does not have it’s own AP Language and Culture exam. Speaking of Andrew McMahon, did you know that he is Jack’s Mannequin? It seems like we all forgot about that. It’s always been odd to me how musicians can sometimes become more famous just by changing their name. Andrew McMahon and the Wilderness sounds very similar

Larry jumped in a car and made the twenty-two hour, 1,456 mile trek across the United States with his dog and bikes in 2014 to the incredibly awesome state of Colorado. Larry teaches middle school by day and quizzes on the minds of the unwilling, and sometimes willing, folk by night. Enter the mind of Larry and you will discover totally pointless neurotic thoughts and arguments with himself that are usually centered around bikes, the fact that clowns and mimes are the most vile and terrifying things on this planet, dead American Gothic authors, fireworks and the cosmos.

Veronica

We started our quiz by wishing a happy 51st birthday to the seemingly unaging Keanu Reeves, and I played music from soundtracks to his movies. The Matrix trilogy, Speed, even a song from Sweet November made it on the playlist. As you can see in one of the photos, the bar was pretty packed – for a while it was standing room only at last night's quiz!   Round one changed a letter to a popular ad slogan; the first round of drinks for the bonus question went to So-Crates

QM DJ Don Drapist

  Another party (sans pooping) at Acme!   Here are the things we now know to be true:   One letter can make all the difference in an ad slogan, especially if it makes the slogan about farts, or masturbating, or throwing up, or even wife swapping.   More of you knew the Andrew McMahon song in the audio round than I would’ve guessed. I still remember him as the guy from Something Corporate.   I’m so proud of a couple of teams who were able to name all the Paul Thomas Anderson movies, because one of my favorite all time films is There Will Be Blood.   The party pooping

Thank you to everyone who participated in the madness that was Disney/Street Fighter mashups. Now I feel like I need to keep coming up with new assignments each week… Great time at the quiz, everyone was in top shape with wit and brilliance. Both in answers as well as your wonderful team names. Way to find another way to mock Ashley Madison. So, haikus: Blows pain down like rain / “Hadoken!” The cry of Ken / Bambi’s mom is dead Ariel falls down / Bison has won again / Back to the sea, bitch Pocahontas sheds / Blood from our her “wherever” / You’re offended now Your stipulation / Bison defeating Kronk /

Nick is one of the rare people who was born in Las Vegas long before it became Disneyland for degenerates. His growing discomfort for heat, and ongoing feud with some Canadian boy named Celine Dion led him to the land of Zion. Upon discovering this wasn't the same land of Zion mentioned in The Matrix, he decided to make the best of the situation and began hosting pub quizzes. 

His hobbies include drinking, eating, teaching children to swear, cooking, and being one of the last people on earth who thinks CDs are the only way to buy music. His turnoffs are walks on the beach, because that combines sun, sand, and countless bacterias growing in the moist heat. 

By day he looks at an endless supply of MBA student assignments and weeps for the future. His most recent inappropriate comment to a student was, "I could take your business proposal to run an armoury for Live-Action-Role-Players seriously if it wasn't for the 793 grammatical errors which impeded my giggling."

He's not a licensed therapist, but he's happy to take a look inside your head and solve your problems. Better yet, come out to a quiz and drink your troubles away.

Folks around these parts know me by a lot of names. Having grown up in Seattle I went by Cookie during my time playing baseball. Also had the nickname Nature Boy at summer camp, and in high school Spanish class I was Diablo. Along with my many names come many talents. I was the state pickleball champion two years in a row (2005-2006) and have a pretty mean drinking arm when it comes to bar games. Try your luck and challenge me to some pool if you feel lucky. Am a passionate world traveler with plenty of plans to keep moving along in the future. Currently enjoying life and laying it all on the line Monday night at the Blue Star Cafe & Pub.
