A Coppola
Drew-a-mania

Everyone loves it when I drop the beat and do my acapellas! A whole round on songs with no instrumentals.  What a fun round?! Not as fun as if it was my original thought.  First time I read the round I thought we were about to hear songs in the key of Coppola.  TV theme songs sung by Sofia Coppola and Nicholas Cage... that would've been a hoot!  Mr. Cage gravelling his way through the How I Met Your Mother diddy?  Jason Schwartzman humming the theme to The Office?  That actually sounds like a B-side to a Coconut Records album. Anyway, I'm a dummy, but luckily the quizzers aren't.   The rest of the quiz went well.  In fact,

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.

Game Of Thrones? I Got Questions!
Chris

So, I sincerely have no idea if I should read Game Of Thrones, or watch the show. Like, everyone does one or the other first, right? You'd have to. I mean, you could do only one, but I assume that only works for the show. Like, tons of people watch the show and never read the books cuz, I mean, there are a few thousand pages to get through and the general America is like "guh, no ready booky-wook" but the folks who read the books are gonna be watchin the show like WHOA checkin up on the little inconsistencies, which makes sense cuz we all wanna be on the inside of something.   Now, I’ve never done either. Well, I watched a couple episodes when the show started, but

A Cat Was In My Spot When I Got Here
Carlos

What a freaking awesome quiz we had, everyone! Our greatest attendance yet and so much random enthusiasm. If you’re going to do this every Thursday, sign me up to continue. Well, I’m already on contract to be there every Thursday, so I guess any promise-making has to be done on your end. Go ahead. I’ll wait. It was our first tie at Tiniest Bar, that means it was our first DANCE-OFF and our two highly intellectual and tremendously embarrassed white dudes could not have been prouder of their work. So many questions right AND skills like that? You guys have it all. I went home to a couple of cats and an empty house, passing out on the couch after staring at the

Summer Is Coming
LukeDarby

Hello, Gumshoes. I hope you enjoyed all of the Carmen San Diego references this week. Now like my red hatted role model, I'm fleeing Cleveland to spend the summer collecting priceless artifacts so that you can ultimately pass elementary school social studies tests. You're welcome in advance.  Shit Creek Boys took the top spot early this week, and rode that bastard all the way to the end, with Didja Get That Thing I Sencha? following them the whole way.  Best Team Names: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Merkin Bob Loblaw's Law Blog (you sir are a mouthful) Little

Where in the world is Where in the World is Carmen SanDiego?
McFly

I'm talking about the original computer game. That thing was like crack to a young Benji. Hell, so was that game show! I don't know how they got away with canceling the show, but I guess it had to happen sooner or later. Those sort of detective games are very popular in my brain. I was the kid who was waiting until the 5pm time slot for Where in the world is Carmen SanDiego? It was a habit I just didn't want to shake. I also have to thank my BFF Tyler for owning the computer game and letting me play it for hours at a time. Even when he didn't want to play it. I don't know why I am so addicted to those "solve" games. Maybe it is my logical mind. Or maybe it is the thrill of putting together

The nickname McFly is derived from my love for Back to the Future. It isn't my real last name, but a lot of people think it is. As much as it appears that I spend a lot of time in front of a boxy controller or joystick, I do enjoy the outdoors, as well. You can find me at the 1up on Colfax periodically. I love playing GWD and being a Quiz Master.

But we're European!
Marla Bee

Wow, first night in a long time that the only two people in the bar that I recognize are my fiance and one of the bartenders! What an interesting night with all my regulars out and elsewhere and a bar completely filled with n00bs! Fresh meat is always a good time, but less akin to razzing and inappropriateness so I always gauge my audience and make sure to be on my best behavior. I vow to be the one quizmaster that has a forever clean record of not ever having a drink thrown in my face or a rumble in the parking lot. I got told by a guy tonight that he's a bar manager in Europe and that a quiz master of sorts out there and the quiz I'm giving is way too hard. He repeated himself several
