The Carts of War
Brendon

Good Evening, Quizlets, This week's Mardi Gras quiz was not lacking in bon temps (who could forget the stunning and victorious performance of Babes, Boobs, and Brews in the pre-quiz art cart parade), nor was it lacking in competition, as a heated race for 1st and 2nd came down to the wire for the second week in a row. Just outside of the money in third place were our newcomers, "The Team Who Must Not Be Named",  who won a tight battle for the last podium spot with "Toby's Squad" but just couldn't get the points they needed in the final round to vault up into the top two. The top two this week were composed of familiar faces, with the always colorful "Your

Yes Movement
Drew-a-mania

Full disclosure, I cried before I went to Quiz, I was physically ill during the Quiz, and I still feel like my body is in shock as I write this blog.  Depending on how tuned in you are with Pop Culture or Professional Wrestling you may have heard that Daniel Bryan, professional wrestler, Tide spokesman, all-around swell guy, my personal hero, was forced to retire this week.  I won't get into my full feelings about the situation in this blog, or why at the age of 30 I have a pro wrestler as a personal hero.  I will say that minutes before I left to go to the quiz tonight I watched him retire on an episode of Monday Night Raw.  And it hurt.  This evening felt a

After years of third place finishes at Geeks Quizzes I have embraced the saying "if you can't beat 'em... than just quit and become a Quizmaster."  

When I'm not selling out I spend my time in ABQ as a stand-up comedian, indy wrestler, and salsateer.  My finishing move in wrestling is a high impact belly-flop; ironically that's how I end most of my comedy sets.  I suppose thats the Libra in me always looking for balance.  Which is probably a good explanation for the two tattoos on my back: one is a hawk with kanji letters in the wings and the other is Lucy Liu... that way I have two badass birds with a little bit of Chinese in them.

Shakespeare By The Bell
Gary

What a great quiz night! Our good friends the BAMFS returned to get Thunderstruck again last night (that's the name of the drinking game!) and team First There's Fat Tuesday, Then There's Obese Wednesday successfully avenged their title they lost last week. We also had a great showing from the solo team RS who had a very respecteable score for a single team member. Great job! RS also gave us tonight's answer of the night with "What is suck ass, Alex?" for question 7 in round 6. Haha, I loved it! I know I had fun learning that the Venus Fly Trap can actually count to 5. That's at least twice as smart as most people I know! Tonight I

Saved By The Bard
Kalkema

Hey guys! I was feeling a little under the weather tonight but you, as always, made my job super easy and fun ta boot! so thank you for that. I really appreciate the level of camaraderie among he teams lately. seems like everyone is here for the same thing. booze and Quiz with friends. Cheer!   We learned a lot at Quiz tonight: I learned you guys know you movies backwards and forwards. We wondered where Shaggy was. We found it was harder than we thought to tell between Shakespeare and saved by the bell. We had some fun with groups and their fictional meetings. We looked at te many facets of Nathan Lane. I learned

Everything I learned about what is great in life I first learned from my parents.


My comedy comes from my dad who is the funniest guy I know. He would throw on Monty Python

records when I was a kid and laugh until he cried. He also introduced me to some of comedy's most

renowned classics.

 

Python? Check!

Martin? Check!

Cosby? Check and check!

I could go on, but you get the point.

 

So, if you find yourself enjoying my personal brand of humor, just know I stole it from my father 

and the hoist up a cold one for Bruce. :)

 

From my mother I inherited a deep love of books and movies. I have a personal movie collection of

300+ and my mother's collection puts mine to shame. I can talk movies for hours and its all due to my

dear sweet mother who has a special place in her heart for giant animal movies. Lake Placid, anyone?

 

So thats me in a nutshell. I'm a born and raised, comedy loving, movie nerd with a helluva Marvel Comics

collection.

I'm Healthy I swear
JeffreyMetius

So I started working out again.  I have been going to the gym again 3 times a week, as well as playing hockey.  But then I get myself hurt.  I Managed to get tendonitis in my shoulder and had to take a couple weeks off from hockey…and then it also restricts my work out routine as well.  So just when I start getting my ass back in shape then something comes up and sets me back again.  Getting old sucks…injuries happen more often and they don’t heal as quickly.  So far I’m 4 weeks into my shoulder healing and it still has at least 1 more week to go before I’m back to functional.  I’ve still been doing what upper body work

Hello all!

I'm Jeff...the really big guy. In my time when I'm not hosting quiz I enjoy playing hockey and taking my jeep up into the mountains to get away from everyone.  While I'm up there I ponder the many parts of life...like why do hotdogs come in packs of 10 and the buns come in packs of 8...and yes you can explode and yes you can implode...but can you just plode?

Just think about it.

And The Winners Are... Puppy Monkey Baby
Barker

Puppy Monkey Baby.  Not only was it the one of the most bizarre Super Bowl commercials ever but it is also the name of our winners. They dominated with the high score of 77. Just like the commercial dominated the airwaves. Now I may be the only person who truly appreciates the absurd genius of Puppy Monkey Baby.   Everyone else I know hated the commercial (including the winners).  I think it's hilarious and I'm not afraid to let the world know. Anyway, in terms of the quiz. We had good stuff like Saved by the Bell or Shakespeare? We had a visual round all about Nathan Lane. And we had

Two QuizMasters, One Mic (Kinda)
King Of The South

So I drank tequila tonight. It was rough. And then I realized tomorrow was Lent, so right now I'm leaning towards giving up alcohol. I think it might by an emotionally charged, rash decision based on Veronica's shot choice. But hey, now we just get to see how many different ways you can all try to peer pressure me into breaking my vow.  In other news, Veronica got her own mic after me promising it to her for about the entire year. Then we realized we had a mixer that only supported one mic. Baby steps.  We had 21 teams celebrate Veronica's one-year quiz-iversary, with 20 teams deciding it was an important enough moment to stay for all 8 rounds.

Hey yo. I'm RJ. The Urge. R-Jizzle. I'm a transplanted Austinite, originally hailing from Clarksville, Tennessee. I was educated at a school where it's perfectly acceptable to show your Peay-ness. I'm your typical sports fan. (Soccer being my sport of choice.) Cereal is my favorite food, simply because you can eat it at any time of the day. And it makes milk totally flavorful and drinkable.

I'm a total nut for pop culture...movies, music, books. I try to take as much of it in as possible, regardless of how it eats into my daily responsibilities. I'm still a video game nerd, although there isn't a lot of time for it nowadays. I'm a shameless fan of reality television and I once made it through the first two cuts of casting for The Real World. But, alas, I wasn't emotionally challenged enough to make it all of the way.

Professional wrestling is still real to me.

Hello Quizzers! The name is Jay and this Quizmaster's story begins in Skokie, Illinois, but since very few people from the Boston-area know where that is, let's just call it Chicago; I mean, its a direct subway line and only two towns over....FINE, I grew up in a suburb, are you happy now? Graduated from Babson College in 2013 with a Bachelor's in Business Administration and a Master's in Accounting. I'm a nerd by day, and a geek by night. Decided to stay out here and give this East-coast thing a shot. I like to follow the Vin Diesel school of Geekdom. If you want to compare lifts and gym routines, I'll be there; but if you want to geek out, and I mean if you REALLY want to geek out, I'm your go-to-guy. -Music? 5x year attendee of Lollapalooza Music Festival, 3x Karaoke champion in 2008. I will stand firmly behind the idea that RHCP needs John Frusciante, Progressive R&B is the music of the future, and that Drum & Bass is the best EDM sub-genre. -Video Games? Been playing since Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the NES, and haven't stopped since. FPS, MOBA, JRPG, MMORPG, whatever the hell Katamari Damacy was (other than completely awesome), I got you covered. -TV? I may or may not still reference lines from Archer, South Park, Futurama, and the Simpsons on a daily basis. -Movies? Been watching them constantly since my dad made me watch Bloodsport with Jean-Claude Van Damme at age 5. Favorite View Askew (Kevin Smith) comedies are Clerks and Chasing Amy, least favorites are Mallrats and Clerks II; I refuse to count Jersey Girl as an actual member of that universe. -General Geekiness? I had a 3-month stint as Dungeon Master for my D&D group, I hosted a LAN-party about a week before writing this bio, and I make sure to check IGN, Kotaku, and Reddit on a daily (closer to hourly)-basis With all that said, I hope to see you on the quizzing battlegrounds soon.

SPOILER: I am the monster in the new Cloverfield movie
Quizmistress KT McG

Holy smokes there were a lot of you that came to quiz last night! The general consensus was that the Shakespeare/Saved By The Bell round was hard but hilarious, and someone thought that Victoria Beckham was a member of TLC. Best answer of the night was from round 2, when someone wrote Asia - Storms in Africa. We Put the Allen in Valentine's Day and Multiple Scorgasms were tied for first going into round 8, and then E Pluribus Funk finally circled their joker and skyrocketed into second place. We Put the Allen in Valentine's Day emerged victorious over all to claim the $50 gift certificate. I only have

Shakespeare The Mastermind of Saved by the Bell!
MathewMiller

It was quite the beautiful day today I actually decided to ride my bike down to the quiz this evening.  It is looking like we are in for an early spring!  I think quite a few of my regulars were taking advantage of the beautiful weather too as there were some people I am used to seeing not in attendance.  This quiz was actually a pretty tough one I could visibly see people stumped by a few of these rounds so there definitely was a challenge element to this quiz.  Making a triumphant return we had Erectile Destruction in first place followed by Resting Bitch Face in second.  Ever with the Matt Puns we had the Matt Scientists

Well this was the most intimate evening I've had in a while. Thanks, you guys were really good. I would like to do it again sometime. This stupid warm February weather must've convinced all the less-dedicated to go jump in a lake or something, because tonight was all about the All-Stars. It's like when Survivor does a season of all the best players and makes them fight for my entertainment. That's like exactly what tonight was actually. Some of you are scrappy fighters and some of you who should be the fighters were just too busy twerking up in my business to fight and maybe that's why you didn't get first place... coughcoughstrugglebuscoughcoughalexcough.

Turd Burger Was An Appropriate Name

In times of trial and tribulation, when faced with an unexpected and unrepentant adversary, it's always good to take a second, take a breath, relax, observe, and ultimately decide to be the bigger person with a  "screw you, I'm the one with the microphone, assmouth." Doesn't hurt that I also have a blog as a venue to trash talk afterward, too!  So yeah, last night was the first time I truly had someone violate straight-up Rule Number Two. You know that rule. Yes, there have been times when an over-drunk, attention-seeking type tries to cannonball through the quiz, but never before have I felt personally chided for how I do quiz. I try to present

StephanieHagadorn

Howdy howdy howdy.It all came down to a tie last night, with Poor Chris Martin taking home first place. Oh poor Chris Martin, he was like the Martin O’Malley of the Super Bowl halftime show. It could be worse you could always be Lincoln Chafee. Anxious Shelter Dog took second. Let’s see what we learned…1. The backwards plot of 50 shades of Grey is somehow more boring then the regular 50 Shades of Grey plot.2. That C&C Music Factory song you think is totally called “Everybody Dance Now” is actually called “Gonna Make you Sweat”3. To be fair, Saved by the Bell was

It’s been a full two days, but I’m still a little bitter about the Broncos victory. They are the Puppy-Monkey-Baby of Super Bowl champions. If you didn’t catch that reference, then what the hell were you doing on Sunday night? This was supposed to a big one too, number 50, and that is the garbage we got to put with as champions. What a shame. That being said Carolina didn’t deserve it either after the effort they put into to it. I just wish we could play the season over again and maybe have two teams that were good enough to justify being that game. If you aren’t a football fan I’ll get back to the pub quiz at The Beer Market (cheap plug) in a moment. I
