Damn Meddling Kids
Cousin Chet

Alright, guess what? In case you didn’t already know, kids are fucking terrible. They are stupid and bad and just the worst. Especially when they are presented with the things that you and I grew up with. Yes, Teddy Ruxpin talked. And he was kinda creepy. But we loved him none the less. And VHS wasn’t the best way to watch recorded material, but it sure beat the fuck out of looking through TV Guide and hoping that that one movie we wanted to see was on some time before 3am. The invention of VHS and the video store was the greatest thing that ever happened to my generation. How else were we supposed to see Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers, Return of the Living Dead, and CHUD? But

Better Than Nothing, Right?
Taylor

I bet you all missed me like crazy, right?  You've been holding your breath since the last time I subbed.  It's okay, you don't have to say it - I can tell it by the way you told me repeatedly that you "hated" me and that I was "the worst person ever" and that you wished I'd "never shown up".  You're just playing hard to get.  Really, really hard to get.  But that's okay, I'm not above chasing affection...   ..No, wait.  I'm TOTALLY above chasing affection - which is why I laughed at your pain when I made you name the other Bush offspring that weren't Jeb or Dubya.  Who even knows that shit?  Well, the one Republican in

Can you tell a rainbow, "Hey - stop being a rainbow!"?  NO!    Such is Taylor. 

 

What can I say?  I'm a pub quiz-obsessed Geek who has an unnaturally strong affection for Star Wars, Marvel, cosplay, and just about any other nerdy thing you can think of (minus anime - I have SOME standards).  Things I hate?  How about Quentin Tarantino films, France (I'm AMerican, so I have to), the whole state of Michigan, and the show Ancient Aliens, just to name a few.  Born in the Promised Land (aka Ohio), lived in Los Angeles (aka Shit Hole), Los Alamos (aka Leave it to Beaver-ville), and now Davis, CA.  You can generally find me at the movies or at your nearest Comic Book convention - I'll be the one dressed up, so you should totally be able to spot me.

I used to be a die hard GWD player before taking on the mantle of quizinatrix - but I yelled at my teammates too much and decided I should try a new path to getting my quiz-fix before I lost any friends.  Lucky for me, the QM spot opened up at El Farol and I may or may not have traded sexual favors with several GWD employees to be given the job (if there are no photos, it never happened).  You all have been putting up with me ever since.

So since you've been on this page, I'll expect to see you at my Pub Quizes!  Oh, and bring your safety word - you're gonna need it.

This is our first date, and if we lose, it's our last
Quizmaster Jason

It’s always hard to know exactly what to expect when you are the substitute QM, even when you regularly attend that quiz. I knew from last week that the power adapter for our mixer had been misplaced, but Chaz secured another one and dropped it off before the quiz. Great! This quiz should be a piece of cake! But then I went to hook everything up… and couldn’t get the new power cable to plug into the mixer. It was the right power supply, but upon closer examination I discovered that whoever “lost” the previous power supply, also must have also disconnected it in a very non-standard fashion. In this style of power supply, there are pins that plug in to deliver

The long lost child of George HW and Barbara Bush.  It's only fitting, considering two of her brothers are dicks!  Bahahaha.   All bad political jokes aside, guessing Bush children names provided some of my favorite wrong answers of the night.  More than one team guessed that the "other" Bush kids were named Larry, Moe, and Curly.  Then there was Where's Tanner? who just guessed Bill, Ted, and Excellent.  In case you missed it, there are Bush children who are actually named Neil, Marvin, and Dorothy.  Dorothy (for the record) is a Koch...and now that everyone is paranoid about the Kochs and the Waltons owning

Feels Like the First Time
ChrisPothoven

You guys heard the big news from last weekend, right? You had to, it was national news. So let's hear it for Matt Boyd making his Major League Baseball debut with the Toronto Blue Jays! Probably should have mentioned that it was national news in Canada. The guy is a good friend of mine and we grew up across the street for each other. I'm really excited for him and he had a decent outing, too. He went six and two thirds with seven strikeouts against the Texas Rangers, a team known for hitting the ball well. It was crazy watching him strike out Adrian Beltre, who we used to go see as kids when he played for the Mariners. Watch for him to get the start on Thursday against the Boston Rex Sox.   As

Such sweet farewells, Clarks.

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh if I could write a song it would be a sad song about leaving half of your PB&J in the street for some passerby to take, and just not knowing where such culinary perfection came from.    Clarks, you need to start putting stickers on your to-go boxes.    Our time spent with one another was short, my friends, and it is with heavy heart that I walk away from this venue as Dustin steps back into the limelight. Fear not, quizzers. Change is good. At one time, I, too, was change. I understand that in the last two weeks it feels as though I had been leading your army from the first nail in the wall, but I assure you, Clarks...

"Smooth" is a Song I Don't Like
RESII

On the eve of the eve of the end of June, teams battled for supremacy and 25 bucks. The Great British Sewing Bee at least lived up to the “great” part of the name—they did not seem so British—and won the grand championship of Monday by a mere point. Second place went to the oh-so-close team of Barry Blue Jeans. However, team Barry has defeated Sewing Bee before so it just adds kerosene to the hot rivalry. Early leaders Dancing on Rainbows settled for third and Some College Kids and a Ginger placed fourth.   I hate “Smooth.” Not the feeling, but the Santana/Rob Thomas

Sometimes Stuff Just Gets Weird
RobotNarwhal

Do you ever just sit back and ponder at how weird life has gotten? At least, my life has gotten weird. There are just so many strange little things that nobody warns you about, and that most of us breeze over sharing because they are too little or too strange. And thus life slowly passes us by.     Last night as I was driving home, I saw a kid with what can only be described as the largest “Jewfro” I have ever seen. Now, I am not trying to make unfair assumptions about race or origin here. I used to have a Jewish friend in high school who had the best crazy unkempt curly hair I had seen to date, and

Wayne and Garth have nothing on y'all! Our quiz this week will be the one that I will measure all future quizzes against, And here's why:- You sang Bohemian Rhapsody in multiple parts. I repeat: You sang Bohemian Rhapsody in multiple parts!- You didn't stop there. Once we all bonded over our mutual inability to hit Freddy Mercury's highest notes, we were all quite comfortable singing other songs together as well. Hotel California? Check. Take On Me? Yes, and that "in a day or TWOOOOO" part was rough. But equally so for everyone. Basically, what we collectively lacked in talent, we made up for in enthusiasm. And give me enthusiastic quizzers any day.- One of you even knew

Holly Jolly Quiz Miss

I doubt very much anyone has ever seen "K-9" starring Jim Belushi, but somehow, pretty much every team was able to get that correct answer. That’s what I love about Geeks Who Drink: the questions are written craftily and interestingly enough to allow you multiple methods of geeky approach to find an answer. Sadly, this didn’t really pan out for one question and no one was able to come up with any idea of who any of George W. Bush’s siblings are, except for Jeb. But whatevs. There was an adorable tiny pupcake downstairs for most of the quiz that I got to pet, so nothing could have brought me down.  We

After a brief hiatus, we were back on at McLadden's. Nine teams competed for glory, gift certificates, and...guacamole? Phantom Menace didn't think they would be staying the whole time but must have had some fun because they stayed until the end and even came away with a prize. They are a sleeper team to watch. They got one answer right, but crossed it out in favor of a funnier answer, which I always appreciate. Johnny's Bananas brought the Entourage vibe and had a respectable showing as well. They went home with some "Awesome Cards" for having a cool name. Dumbledore's Army was three

Maybe we shouldn't have visual rounds on gay marriage just yet
TJMcDonald

In case you just decided to stop by planet Earth within the past couple hours* the supreme court recently gave gay couples the right to marry. To mark this monumental decision GWD had a visual round mentioning the decision which required the teams to identify the individuals in the picture. This round also led to one of the teams identifying Elizabeth Hasselbeck as J-Lo. If this has every happened on the history of the planet I want to hear about it in the comments. It also may have been the culprit in the explosion of team names that were, shall we say, of questionable taste. In a given week there may be one or two team names that the quizmaster does not look forward
