I did the truffle shuffle for my dad. It's true...
JWarr

The following is a true story.  A for reals true story. I was leaving to come host quiz tonight.  I showed my dad the visual round.  Question 8 was very clearly The Goonies.  You knew it, he did not.  I said “how do you not know the truffle shuffle?” He asked “what is the truffle shuffle?”. Oh fuck me.  Really? It’s 2015.  Where have you been?  So I decided to mock him mercilessly for now knowing the truffle shuffle. Flashforward to five minutes later when FUCK MY CAR WON’T START.  I don’t need

Radio Killed the Video Store
OwenBallard

Tonight’s blog title goes to LOKI’S MISFITS, who were so close in getting the correct answer on the final question of round 8 that was “Video Killed the Radio Star”. LOKI’S MISFITS finished in last place with a final score of 30 points but they were good sports for sticking around till the end. We all had a great time at Scotty’s Pub tonight. We joked about ethnic ex-girlfriends and Eskimo brothers. People say that your learn something new every day, and today I learned something I wish I had not learned. Thanks to team EBDB (the Eskimo Brothers Data Base) I learned that there is an actual app where you can connect with other men who have slept with

I like to consider myself a trivia enthusist/expert, especially with regards to music, Star Wars and the Simpsons (the latter two of the three I know more about than I do about anything).

40th Anniversary of Jimmy Hoffa's Disappearance Day!
Magpie

Today is the 40th anniversary of Jimmy Hoffa's disappearance (wonder why there was no round on him!?) Well I'm sure not everyone is as interested in the disappearance of Jimmy Hoffa as I am.   Today was also the grand return of Uncle Dave to Team Godzilla! Mighty Godzilla!  A faithful player every week had his team re-united and a fantastic return for them as they took away 2nd place with 46 points and won half the drink questions!   Of course since it's been hot as Hades in Central

"Is this Applebee's?"
Lisa Pizza

Now, one of my favorite parts about working in the arcade are the phone calls. Sure, we get a lot of standard calls. "When are minors allowed in?" "Are there any events happening tonight?" "Can I bring in my party of one million tonight?" Those ones are fine.It's the weird ones that I love. I remember a couple months back when a woman called and said, :"Hey, this is weird, but I called earlier and hung up in the middle of the voice mail I was leaving because my coworker shot me in the forehead with a Nerf gun."I listened to that voice mail.It ends with a solid "UHG."Yesterday we had the best call. And I'll even even use a

Sandwiches
Joel Wassner, Sandwich Lover

Ever since I was a very young child, I have had a sandwich for lunch (almost) every day. I remember fondly the days before kindergarten, when my mom would put my in front of the TV while I watched The Price is Right, and quietly ate a salami sandwich with apple juice for lunch. I still eat sandwiches for lunch all the time. I guess it's just ingrained in me now. I really can get fazed if I don't have a sandwich for lunch, it just bothers me for the rest of the day. Then tomorrow I really appreciate the delicious sandwich that I missed out on yesterday.   Sandwiches are a great choice for lunch, too. If you ever do some volunteer event, or get offered a free lunch, it's

He Needed To Go...
He Who Shall Be Ignored/Obeyed About 50/50

It was just another night in the trailer for Sloopy. He wasn’t sure what his roommate’s girlfriend was doing, but he knew he had to get out. Double wide or not, this trailer wasn’t wide enough for the two of them. He had to get out.   The wind felt good in his hair as he drove towards quiz. He needed to get his mind off this crazy Czech girl. Sloopy wasn’t sure why she got under his skin, but he was pretty sure it was something about her heritage. He recalled how angry he’d been when Paulina Porsikova married that dude from the Cars. He

So if you're around the Red Monk a lot, wrestling comes up a lot. I watch my fair share - I'm even watching Summerslam 2007 right now, part of me slowly watching every pay-per-view up to present day. My roommate insists that his teams throw up the Four Horsemen salute, despite the fact he probably couldn't point out Tully Blanchard in a lineup. And if you're around one of our regular teams - this week known as To Sleep, Perchance to Die Hard - you'll hear an occasional Daniel Bryan "YES!" chant, but their usual go-to is the "Too Sweet!" salute (throw up the metal horns, but extend your middle and ring fingers forward to meet your thumb, making a little dog head.)

Family Tree
Joel Wassner, Sandwich Lover

"Who is your Daddy, and what does he do?" This is the greatest line that Arnold Schwarzenegger has ever delivered. It is also a valuable question. For whatever it's worth, your family is your family. For thousands of years, and even farther back if you count non-humans, your ancestors all got laid and eventually it led to you. So, congratulations. Even if you're never lucky enough to get laid, at least your ancestors got busy.   Your family is your family though. We don't choose them, although many people probably wish they could do so. What's really interesting is all the stories that your family has that led to you. Stories that no one remembers anymore,

Hello Quizlings!!! It has been a while since I've seen ya, and looky here, a full house!!!  Always makes me happy to see it.  I had my trusty assistant Newby QuizMistress Laura here, she did a good job with her rounds.  I loved the sound clip section, anytime I can hear Mel Gibson Yell at his foreign ex wife as he's about to marry another chick now, is just special. It was good to see Lawrence again, I haven't had someone in particular to give shit regularly, so his presence is always appreciated.  Well my list of unwatched Gundam Episodes aren't going to watch themselves.   Until Next Time....

I am the son of the classiest whore in Flea Bottom, so you might as well consider me high-born.  I pilot Gundams in my spare time, and am a weapons instructor at the Starfleet Academy on the weekends.  I am fueled by beer and nachos.  I ride lions and shoot lasers on the reg.  I teach blind kids to read, and I'm way into that sensitive shit that girls like, like to the max.

 

I have 12 Gold Medals and your mom wants to date me.  I am a master of the Keytar, and have sold out stadiums.  I also tend to be very humble.

Gloria, I Think They Got Your Number…
Elise

We had a number of milestones and events this evening, I almost thought about making an entire program in its honor. The quiz was exhilarating. The rounds were tough. Certain rounds trounced us. Other rounds buoyed our spirits (80s movies, anyone?) and made us feel like KINGS. And queens.   But tonight was all about celebrating not only my two years as your QuizMistress at the Dragon Room Bar, but also a celebration of the lovely Gloria (and her husband Dave) – dedicated quizzers who are departing the state of New Mexico for greener pastures. Literally. They will be missed, so in Gloria’s honor, I give you song lyrics:    Gloria,

Elise (n): a real life muppet.

Hailing from the great state of Ohio (O-H...I-O!), Elise has lived in New Mexico for 10 years now, and as such, believes that the nickname the "Land of Entrapment" applies. In the 'possibly never getting out' way, not the 'illicit solicitation' way.

Things Elise can't live without: Diet Coke, good grammar, an exorbitant number of shoes, the Muppets and other various Jim Henson creations, a Downbeat on the One, and the never-ending yet enjoyable search for the perfect Bordeaux. Practice makes perfect...

More often than not, she can name that tune in 2 notes, Tom.

Is This The Real Life, Or Is This Just Fantasy?
Rachelbot

I guess tonight was the night of freebies. From the restructuring of the bonus questions (you like it better this way, don’t you?) to playing Bohemian Rhapsody during a question where the answer was…. Bohemian Rhapsody. We just give this shit away. Really though, in regards to the new bonus question incentive: I saw some real excitement when I announced how we’d be addressing our bonus question winners, and I love it! This is the only venue I host where we don’t do free beers for bonus questions, so I thought it was a real epiphany when I realized, instead of tacky prize holes that no one wants, offer an extra point for that round!

Sour Power
Tabitha

Today instead of rehashing what we learned in quiz tonight, I am going to talk about the beer I had tonight. I’m a fan of sours.  I just like the flavor of sour.  As a kid, I could not get enough warheads and sour patch kids.  The sweet factory was my favorite place because I could fill a bag of all the sour candy I could possible want.  Mmmm Sour. So to my pleasant surprise, I discovered sour beer a few years ago.  There are some that I don’t like very much and taste like smelly feet (don’t ask, trust me) but every sour I have tried at Flatstick has rocked my world.  Tonight on tap they had #9 Pomegranate Millie by Wander.

Bill O’Reilly: A Trusted Name in News, and Other Lies Told at Quiz Night
Tom

Very seldom do I question the accuracy of the Geek editors, but one question tonight left me in great anticipation of a fact check. Bill O’Reilly? A trusted T.V. personality? It seemed downright bizarre that Billy O would be considered a trustworthy fellow, almost as wacky as Donald Trump’s semi-legitimate presidential campaign. But controversy is often found within a specific type of Geeks Who Drink question: the dreaded “survey question.”   You all have likely encountered the survey question many times in the past. It usually begins with the phrase “According to [insert potentially fake media outlet],” and proceeds to ask a subjective

You've Caught Your Mother Opening Envelopes?
Kavi Kardoshian

Watching Season 5 Episode 14 of Seinfeld, I'm reminded of an incident that happened to me just after graduating from the 7th or 8th grade. I don't remember which it was, but the incident sticks with me. See, I always valued my yearbooks very highly. I know some people don't care about their yearbooks, but my 5th grade teacher was a talented illustrator and designed a beautiful 5th grade yearbook that caused the idea of the yearbook to stick with me through the years. I went to a tiny, charter middle school, but we cherished our yearbooks. In high school, I was on the yearbook staff and always struggled, Melissa Joan Hart in Can't Hardly Wait-style, to get

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

Whistling Pig Guessing Champions!!!

Some quizzes you guys are ON IT, you know your stuff and you dominate.  Some quizzes you guess... you guess and you have a good time.  There was a lot of guessing tonight! Our round 2 was an audio round allllll about Queens so one team just put down Queen Latifah for EVERY ANSWER... every gosh darn answer... Queen Latifah after Queen Latifah. But guess what?!  She was not in this round at all (it's a crying shame).  Honestly though, can you name any Queen Latifah songs?  Round 7, our second audio round, was another guessing game.  It was all about awful people who have said really really bad things without knowing they were being recorded.
