You Kids Don't Know The Bay City Rollers??
StorySlug

S A T U R D A Y - NIGHT! Yeah, none of you knew that one.  Totally whiffed the bonus question for like four freakin' minutes on this one.  One of you guys finally got it, probably by yelling out into the street until someone's mom happened by. It was a pretty fun night, all told - specifically because of round 7, which was all about hard core nudity.  I mean, you couldn't see the nudity, but how is that different from a normal Thursday night for you people? Trump Joke (Topical Again - FUCK!) Pulled off their third consecutive victory this week, followed by This Team Goes To 11, despite my attempts to demoralize

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.

The One About My Grandma
Nicole

Tonight we celebrated the true spirit of teaminess (and also, want-beer-iness) and witnessed two pairs join forces into one reasonably competitive group. Longshotz (aka the Back Bar Crew) went head to head with Spot for the majority of the quiz. Latecomers Dommer swooped in and took one bonus beer, though only managed to scrape together three total points. This week's quiz had me reliving ancient embarrassments, as we listened to Borat's nude dude scene. The first time I saw that, I was on a date and surrounded by a bunch of friends and it was hilarious. The second time I saw it, I was sitting between my grandmother and my

Chasing The Unicorn
Russel

We had SOOOOO many teams last night. In fact, the last two weeks, we have finished just 1 team behind our archenemy “The Unicorn” for the top team count in Washington State (on Thursday). Fuck those passive-aggressive bourgeois Seattlites Seriously guys, we have to keep it up. We are going to make Doyle’s the Quiz Capital of the state before the year is over. Our little Irish bar located in the heart of Neko Case’s “Dusty Old Jewel” will be both revered and reviled before 2017 gets here. This is my promise to you. One of the dudes on Rude Parrots!

If you’re anything like me or at least around my age range, you watched the TV show The Wonder Years, and the character of Winnie Cooper was an integral part of your youth. Winnie was played by one Danica McKellar, who after the show was over seemed to fade into obscurity only to pop up in TV movies and Dancing with the Stars, and, of course, Sidekicks.   Or so we thought.   Last night’s Round 6 Question 6 asked: “After breaking Kevin's heart on "The Wonder Years," what actress wrote the book "Girls Get Curves: Geometry Takes Shape"?” The answer was no other than Danica herself.   Turns

So, I was about to write about last night’s quiz, but something more interesting happened in the last 24 hours. WE DISCOVERED GRAVITATIONAL WAVES, BITCHES!!!!! Okay, to be fair, when I say “we,” I sure as fuck don’t me you dolts. I mean, for fucks sake, some of you guys think that Britney Spears can actually write. (WhiskeyTangoFoxtrot!!!!) And to be more fair, when I say “we,” I don’t mean me either. I mean, yeah, sure, it’s way likely to be involved somehow in this discover than you dullards. I mean, sure, Tom Hank’s died of a terminal disease in “Philadelphia,” BUT IT WASN’T FROM A “BRAIN CLOUD”!!!!!

We’re Aren’t Shy About Nudity... Sounds
Sean "Not Jay-Z" Carter

It’s always fun to have a round like the nude scene audio round.  Not because I’m some kind of weirdo, but because I love watching teams figure out the answers.  Everyone gets so excited, like they've just snuck a peek of an R-rated movie on cable for the first time all over again.  Or everybody just really likes Fast Times.  You’re cool by me either way. We were packed again last night with 12 teams almost to the end.  Ultimately Cam-err-o blasted into first with a score of 80, taking advantage of the three double points rounds last night.  Tip the Bottle, Bite the Lime were the closest competition,

We Survived The Super Bowl. Peyton Should Buy Us All Beers Now.
Hunter

It was great to see so many people out tonight and that everyone survived Super Bowl Sunday and the Broncos' Victory Rally/Parade on Tuesday. I almost got caught up with that traffic mess Tuesday on my way to work. I think if I'd been 10 minutes later in my drive, I would have been stuck downtown all day. It would've been nice to have gone, but big crowds are not easy to navigate when you're a large guy.I thought that Round 2 would have tripped more teams up when they had to decide between a solo artist or the band that artist was in. Pretty much everyone got that data correct. Song titles though? Yeah, not so much. I think the best guess for a song title tonight was for Fergie.

Bern After Reading
Jim

Are you feelin' lucky? Huh? Are you? Punk. Some teams were feeling lucky last night. Specifically, Easily Amused and To Evil! who took first and second place, respectively. Here's what we learned last night:   -The John Roebling bridges connects Kentucky and Ohio. No Bridgegate for Karate Chop Kasich though. -As always, John Lennon is a talentless hack. Let's all get over it together. -Stevie Nicks isn't though. "Leather and Lace" is a great tune. -The Notebook is awful. Seriously, if it's your favorite movie, find a new one and rearrange

Guys!! Geek Bowl X is NEXT WEEK!!
Mother%$#@er of Dragons

Hello there. I would like to make a point, because it's a point that needs to be made. If you come to my quiz and give a silly answer, I am going to make fun of you. Don't bother coming up to me to argue a point that isn't valid. Just because Samuel L. Jackson has died in a lot of movies, including Star Wars, I think that anyone that knows anything about Star Wars should know that he never wore a wet suit in any of his roles in the film. Just saying.   I don't know about you, but I really enjoyed Round 2. But seriously, song 1 was The Beatles or John Lennon, so I am not sure why one team decided to write Paul McCartney.   I'm not really sure

I'm still pretty new to this Quizmaster thing, but I think I've got the hang of it.

1) Find the biggest guy in the place, walk up to him and punch him in the craw.

2) Always sit with people that look like you.

3) Don't pick up the soap when you drop it.

Wait, that was for something else I did. AWWWWWWWWWKWARRRRRRD.

I've been a Quizmaster since March, 2014, and now that they feel I've got the hang of it, they've finally allowed me to stay close to home and host Thursday nights at The Tavern at St. Michael's Square. 

A little about me. I like long walks in dark alleys. Whenever somebody makes a point to talk about how much they dislike something, I will always find a reason to like it and argue with them. And finally, if we found out that the world was going to end tomorrow, there is a lot of people that would need to go out and buy a protective cup, because there are a lot of people in the world that I would love to kick squarely in the crotch. 

See you at Quiz!!!

Listening to Nudity is Almost as Fun as Watching it
Bingo Jones

A few regulars and a new crew kept the quiz lively last night. Starting off with a round called “Duh” is always a good omen for those new to pub quizzing and it was close scores all night until the final rounds. Everybody saved their Jokers but I Did It For The Wookie came in 1st place and first drunk winning quite a few of the bonus rounds, even giving one away to the team playing next to them, well played Travis and Hannah. Listening to scenes from movies that contained nudity is apparently almost as fun as watching them, though it took the lovely ladies from Spicy Creoles a minute to realize they weren’t

Long Quiz/Short Blog
Professor Truman

If this blog seems a little short and not excellent as it usually is, you’re right.  Professor Truman got himself a new job and training is going on this week.  That’s a 50 hours of training in one week.  I’m used to working 15-20 hours a week.  Once training is over, it will get back to normal.  But for now, here’s a short and to the point blog.  Fun Facts:   We had some jerk-face-jerks last night.  They weren’t quizzing.  They kept on being loud on purpose during the quiz.  They also insulted our quizzer with some pretty crass stuff as they were finally leaving…during the last question of the quiz.

Jeremy: Wow, the clouds to the East look amazing. Must be a nice sunset to the side of the house I can't see. Angela: Walls. They get in the way all the time. Jeremy: I like being sheltered though, so that's nice. Angela: Yes, yes. I'll take walls any day over no walls. Jeremy: Deadpool this weekend! And The Walking Dead! Whaaaat! Angela: I love that we had Team Maverick and Team Goose, which were a group of friends that had to split up into two teams to adhere to the "no more than 6 people rule". And that at the end of the night after a friendly rivalry between them, and one team being ahead of the other for most of

Last Mango In Paris @ THE MAINLINE!!!
Andizzle fo' Shizzle

Parodies and wordplay are my favorite things. Where else can you combine such American institutions as Portlandia and Armageddon? Any time you can create puns based on pop culture, you can count me in, especially when it has to do with sketch comedy, AKA televisions greatest pun factories.   Things we learned this week: - Nobody knows who the Bay City Rollers are. - DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince are overdue for a new album. - Red Rocks is always the best choice for music venues. - Never leave your wallet in your butt pocket.   --------------------
[ ...more... ]



Why yes, Andizzle fo' Shizzle is in fact my legit, legal name (as soon as I change it). Fo' rizzle, bizzle. I've hosted over 700 quizzes since 2008 and have written around 1,000 of our rounds. I'm also a vegetarian, a Jew, and a god damned pretty, pretty princess.

I kick ass and sometimes take names where appropriate; Quizmaster extraordinaire and all around nerd, I host the weekly quiz with both fury and pomp. If you ever find youself in need of a good beating in Halo, tetherball, or a good ole' fashioned PBR chugoff, feel free to let me know.

You can learn a little more about my messed up brain over at my Meet Your Quizmaster interview.

I also write beer reviews and articles @ www.PorchDrinking.com

And if you so desire, I can also be found on The Facebooks or on The Twitters, Xbox Live, Steam, League of Legends, Battle.net, and your Mom's house.

The 5-Second Rule Does Not Apply
Lady Busty

While researching blog ideas (one can never have too many), I came across one called, "Your Worst DIY Disasters," followed by a picture of burnt bread. It instantly brought to mind the very first time I tried baking. I was working at a school, with 4th-6th graders. It was the end of the year, and my birthday was coming up. I wanted to surprise the kids with my favorite treat on my birthday: Millionaire's Shortbread. Imagine shortbread topped with a layer of caramel and another layer of chocolate. OMG SO GOOD. I asked my mom for her recipe and got all my ingredients. I read and reread the recipe. I thought I was prepared. First sign I was not prepared: the chocolate did not

I was born in Scotland to American parents. I spent most of my youth moving around the world as a Navy brat (think: every two years), spending the most time in the UK. Don't let this Midwestern accent fool you. I'm a Brit. Try as I might, I will pronounce and spell things the British way (it is English, after all) and can have a dry, naughty sense of humour. I love puns to no end. Though I am homesick for the Isles, I have adopted Tucson as my home. I've done enough moving for anyone.

What else? I am a Gemini, so there is (at least) one other side to me and I am incredibly indecisive. If there is ever a decision to be made, please, make it for me. I'll be forever in your debt.

I am a Lady, in that I own land in Scotland: two parcels .

I am honest, though I would never say, to any fault. Try me. I'll answer pretty much any question.

I have two degress in Theatre and run the library at a middle school.

I live with my husband, our ten rabbits, nineteen chickens, nine ducks, five turkeys, six quail, one goose, four cats, two dogs, three mice, two goats, and two turtles.

It Really Makes You Think
King Of The South

I've spoken before about how one of the most entertaining things about being a QuizMaster are the answers. A lot of you regular quizzers know I often get a kick out of the most hilarious incorrect answers. And most of those are answered by you on purpose. However, there are those few answers when the truth gets a little hazy. Answering Thirty Dark Zero on a round about movies with nude scenes is hilarious at first glance. But going back and listening to the clip, I wonder if this was actually a serious answer. The truth is, we'll never know. But it really is something to think about. One thing I do know that is true...you don't have to lie down for it to be called

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.

The Joker Is No Joke
Tim

Hey gang. First off, I want to thank you for braving the cold temperature and poisonous air here in Ogden to join me this week. It is seriously terrible out there. Tonight we opened with a 'Duh' round which proved to be much trickier than usual. Round two had you guessing between solo artists and their groups, and you all did pretty well, but few of you felt strongly enough to double your scores. Our visual round was tricky as well, but we saw some nice big scores on our sixteen point round six. You guys showed an impressive amount of sketch comedy knowledge. Well done. We've all played this game enough to know the joker is a fickle bitch, especially on nights when we have

Hey gang,

I have been a quizmaster since all the way back in early 2014. I am a pop culture sponge and have a head full of useless knowledge, so I figured I would put it to work in the best way possible: barking trivia questions at drunkards. When I am not hanging out in bars trying to make people feel stupid, I am a humble public servant in the employ of the United States Government.

I am a worldly gentleman of dignity and refinement, and a student of the human condition. That is a nice way of saying I am a snarky asshole who judges people while doing nothing meaningful with his life. I am a sci-fi nerd, a fantasy nerd, a science nerd and a history nerd (a useless college major, I have discovered to my dismay). 

Regardless, I am happy to be part of the Geeks family and look forward to quizzing in all of your faces!
