Big Quiz, Bigger Scores
Justin Mazouat

Yes, for realz, next time the quiz at M Uptown will have to be a heck of a lot harder! Our first place team tonight was running perfect through the first six rounds, missing three points on our tricky video round and only two in the final round! That score is insane, but they still only won by three, while third place came up short, even though their score would normally be enough for first place! But super high scores also came with thirteen teams, which is the most since I took over at M Uptown a few months back! I'm going to pretend its because ya'll came to see ya boi (me, Justin). Don't ruin this for me. Good thoughts... Sorry to all

Back to School
Jeanne Meowclane

I am not a teacher, but I definitely do know my fair share of them. This week the vast majority of them went bak to work and my what a difference a week makes. I've seen them go from pleasant humans to still pleasant humans with a touch of tiredness. I am in constant awe of these people who give their lives up to educate other people's spawn (and probably mine in the future if I have spawn).   Let's raise a glass and a give a hearty cheer to these fine people. Because without them, I'm pretty sure we'd be doing something less fun than what we're doing now.   TEAMS! We had  a tie! Between Us and Them 2.0 and

Prodigal Coincidences? Or Why Didn't I Catch That Before?
Your Best Friend Rachel

School has definitely started back up. The sun is shining brighter. The ar smells clean. It's my favorite scent of the year... That sweet silence thanks to no children present during the day and young coeds out during the night smelling of sweatshop hipster perfume and Axe Body Spray. Unrelated: What has to happen to implement a curfew for 20 and under? I'm not talking bad... I'm talking what's the least serious thing to make that happen? JUST KIDDING YALL WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL. I only want that curfew enforceable when I'm trying to get a god damned drink at the bar. Smooches. Thanks so much for coming out last night and having a great time. You even brought your parents?

Welcome to my nightmare
Major Tom

I don't know if I've ever mentioned this before, but I'm a pretty big karaoke fan. The problem is that I have a fairly low voice, and most of the rock singers in the karaoke books have very high voices. I don't listen to much music that isn't rock, and I skew toward hard rock, heavy metal, and punk. The karaoke guys usually don't have that much of that sort of thing. One artist I've had a lot of luck with is Alice Cooper. I've been a huge Alice Cooper fan since I was a kid. I remember seeing him host The Muppet Show. I always wanted to run into him around town, since I grew up in Phoenix, his home town. Just about everyone I went to high school with met him at random, but I still have not.

My name is Tom.  I got into this gig by kicking everyone's ass at the Quiz at Club Congress on a weekly basis until they pretty much had to give me a job.  Now I do 2 clubs in Tucson, and you should be at both of them.  Besides doing this, I play in a ska-punk band called Troy's Bucket, and I have a job teaching 7th grade social studies.  I'm a huge metal and punk fan, but I also dig a lot of other stuff.  Halloween is my Christmas.  A lot of that has to do with my birthday, December 24th, being totally ignored thanks to Christmas.  I left the sinking ship that is Detroit, but I still love the Red Wings.  That's a hockey team.  Hockey is the greatest sport in the world.  I am single, so feel free to line up at the QM's table to meet me.  I drink Guinness, so feel free to send one my way.  I still won't give you any extra points.

In Which I Make You All My Prison Wives...
StorySlug

So, one week after This Team Goes To 11 went on to that great big scoreboard in the sky, there was a pitched battle between the scraps that remain.  In that battle, Toy Boat Toy Boat Toy Boat came out ahead, but That Team Get To Eleven rode to second place, fueled by their mockery of the former champions.  DJ Dead Dad came in third place, and sadly realized far too late that "third place" just means "top loser," and there are no prizes for that. Special points to team Woop Woop, who showed up late, gave up in discouragement after two

There's an opposite side to "Those who can't do, teach."

That opposite side is, "Those who can do so well that they ruin it for everybody else by making them feel like there's no point in playing."

That's the way I am with quiz games.  I always get accused of cheating, and I always win the free drinks.

So, my new calling in life is to shepherd your weak, jiggly brains into the harsh light of knowledge - to every week pit the strong against the week, strengthening the herd, and ultimately deciding who is only a little bit not-as-smart-as-I-am.

Hey Campers! Well we’re winding down to the last month of Summer. Can’t say I’m going to miss it one goddamn bit. We are doing a Harry Potter themed quiz this weekend! Tomorrow, Saturday the 27th at 2 pm. Ingersoll Tap, our esteemed Quizmaster from the Red Monk, Tas, is going to be your Grand Wizard for the Harry Potter Quiz. Wait…. On to the rundown!

Old Friends Return, New Friends Made
DaniIndovino

This was the first week I had a team leave early and then a team come in late, so that we always had the same number of teams. It was very strange. Now, I should have combined them, so that the incoming team had a shot, but that felt like cheating, so they both came in last. WHOOPS.   Otherwise, it was nice to see some of my favorite teams return for the fall. I know it makes you guys sad, cause, you know-- winter is coming and all that sad stuff. BUT, it's nice for me, because it feels like we can settle back into our happy lives and ride out the winter with Cats and Netflix. Or some such.   THOUGH, we had a couple of new big teams, and they were

I Really Wanted To Have You Act Out A Scene…
Rev. Lindsay

Primarily to see how far someone would take it if I played “Goodbye Horses”.  That’s right!  We gave away passes for SILENCE: THE MUSICAL last night.  I decided it would be for the best team name OR best hand-drawn picture of your favorite scene.  Kyle from I Put The Lotion On Every Night drew a legit A.F. picture of the very scene I was expecting.  He and Mikaela are going to enjoy those passes tonight.  Lemme know how it is guys!   We had a tie-breaker for third even though (technically)

Homeowner!
Weazel

Thank you to everyone who helped me celebrate being a homeowner for the first time ever!  WOOT!!!  It was a long, emotional process to get here, but it is pretty awesome finally being able to say I have my own home.  Plus, I finally get to join the rest of America by being in debt.  YAY!  ;)   Tonight was no ordinary quiz, either.  That's right, we had a VIDEO ROUND for round seven.  It was amazing!!!  I'm glad you all agreed that having a video round is better than an audio round - we will make sure to continue doing the videos from here on out.  Exciting stuff!  And Huzzah to projectors!!   Congrats

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhha!, ahhhhhhhhhhhha!,
We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow.
The hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new lands,
To fight the horde, singing and crying: Valhalla, I am coming!

On we sweep with threshing oar, Our only goal will be the western shore.

"Ollie, what's the weather like?" "IT'S GON RAIN!!"
Candace

So, Texas weather likes to throw up a middle finger when we have plans for a good time. An example: last Thursday. Apparently it's going to rain, quiz or shine. Flooding had been going on, we all knew that. However, not only did the fear of getting rained on present itself, but our plan B backup room flooded as well. This put a small damper on our quiztivities, as the only area left open was the main dining hall and it was PAAAAAACKED! So, doing what any responsible QMMF would do, I hollered at the bossman and asked for his judgement. He said "THOOOOOUUUU SHAAALLLL NOOOOTTTT QUUUIIIZZZZZ". So, we went home.   Buuuuut, we're back this week! Everyone

Foreign Language Lessons with Rita Hayworth
Johnna

I know that I said I haven’t’ seen the Shawshank Redemption, but I was wrong! I Googled it and now I remember watching the last 45 minutes or so. It was playing at this gym I used to go. They had a magical space called the Cardio Cinema room. It’s exactly what you think it is- a dark room filled with treadmills and ellipticals and other such torture devices with a movie projected onto one of the walls. Honestly, this is still the only way I can drown out the angry voices in my head while working out. I just don’t like running, ok? Especially on a treadmill, what’s my motivation on those things? But put some beef jerky in my pockets and throw me in some Sasquatch

Embarrassment of Riches

Some weeks my quizzers at King Harbor Brewing Company don’t give my diddly squat when it comes to comically bad wrong answers. Some weeks my quizzers are just so damned sharp that only the most challenging of answers will escape them.  Some weeks my quizzers’ scores are high enough to be noticed by our Quizbot 9000 and have even been mentioned in the National Power Rankings (yes there are National Power Rankings).  Some weeks I really do have to stretch myself thin and stretch pretty far for material for this blog. This  week is one such week where all of the aforementioned does

Rock and Roll Sweaty Nights

Hi everyone. I'm still sweating.    Rolling right into things, we should point out that Dirty Girls and Company made their return, and actually brought some stupid looking muscle with them. I assumed that prior to the quiz starting, and you can see by their score, my assumption was p accurate.  Moving on to other jerks, I was WILDLY DISAPPOINTED by Dik Piks, as they completed bombed the audio round. I expect more from these dudes, as I know them personally and they're fantastically full of useless knowledge. That being said, holy hell they sucked in that audio round.

One Ring to Rule Them All...and by 'Them' I mean 'Me'
Dustin

First off, special thanks to my Quizmaster colleague, the lovely Amanda for filling in for me last week in what sounds like a quiz night where you all had to deal with some assholery. I'm sorry to hear that but was glad to hear that someone deserving got 86-ed by our homey Cameron, and of course that sort of thing isn't anything Quizmisstress Amanda can't handle. Or should I say, Quizbitchtress. Bad-ass quizbitchtress nonetheless. And now to my absence, which the Schmizza faithful are only far too aware of. And don't worry, this will surely be the last time I blather on and on in this space about my getting hitched this summer. One: because I'm sure there's a limit on how much of that

Climb Out of Your Liberal Caves, TRAILHEAD!
The Radness That Is Brecken

I suppose I just need to accept that you're not all as hyper-political as I am. But you know, it's kind of lonely being the only one up all night on Twitter debating the merits of allowing more than two major political parties in the presidential debates. Sorry I get down on you. Anyway, for the record, it's "Breitbart." I would tell you to go ahead and forget it now, but remember that one of their top crazies is advising the most insane person we've ever had running for president. So you should probably go and learn all you can. And then be very, very afraid.   Stay classy, Trailheaders. Wherever you are. Do you think that I write more than this
[ ...more... ]

It's hard to be humble when you're so fucking smart... The Radness That Is Brecken has been a quiz mistress since Aug. 2007. Yeah, that's a long fucking time. It is said the only way to stop her is to kill her, and, really, good luck with that. When not belittling you on a mic, Brecken is busy hating people (see her neck tattoo), and really not caring about much... except GWD, Trailhead, her pets, and beer. She lives her life like the Arthur Balfour quote: "Nothing matters very much, and few things matter at all." Pet peeves include people that yawn without covering their mouth, those that say "WHAT?" instead of "Pardon?", and people that accuse Miss B of being a bad pet owner. That shit will get you punched in the mouth. Seriously. Ask anybody. Check out her other misadventures, writing or otherwise, at BreckenBaker.com. You know you want to, so stop being all douchy about it. And please remember: much like the Wu-Tang Clan, Brecken ain't nothing to fuck with. What Chilly Wig-Wam?
