The 90s Strike Back
Hunter

In the early 90s, I was a closed-captions editor. Friday nights were always frantic for us because the various networks would never deliver the Saturday morning cartoons for us to work on until Friday nights. To give some perspective, at least at that time, it would take us editors about 8 hours to caption a 20- to 25-minute show (the length of a half-hour show minus the commercials). To get the shows done in rapid time (because we had to get the shows, edited, proofed, ready for encoding by midnight), we'd all get about 5 minutes of a show to edit and then go do 5 minutes of the next show. In addition to the Saturday cartoons, we had an exclusive contract with Disney and also had to do all

I Know Why the Cage Bird Quizzes
DanielCostie

Civic freedom, seizure-inducing digital theme songs, and washed up child stars were in the hopper last night at Wee Katie’s. On Wednesday night, I actually PLAYED Geeks Who Drink trivia for the first time. I now know what it is like to be on the other end of this relationship. Its almost like hearing a recording of your own voice and going ‘do I really sound like that?’   We had some sharp competition with some Geeks Who Drink seasoned veterans participating at the pub. The other teams were quick to up their game but by the end, the most gratuitous team reigned supreme. Team Wang Chung was awarded with the honorable mention of third place.

Jessie's Girl Was a Tease!!
Mother%$#@er of Dragons

Being put in the friend zone sucks. Having a song written about it must suck even more. I mean seriously, think a out it. If this is something that has never happened to you, then frankly, you won't get it. It's the equivalent of of doing an entire school project that was meant to be done as a group, and then you receive an F while everyone else gets an A+. It's like getting a participation trophy after having an MVP type season.   I once had the biggest crush on a girl in college and would listen to her go on for hours about her homework and her family and her problems, and then I would watch her oogle over a dozen different guys that only interest in her was,

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!!!

The Tragic Tale of Tommy Sadboy

Hola, People of Rapture!   What a well-rounded night of questions! You got some sports, you got some fashion, you got some science, you got a shirtless photo of the little kid form Jerry Maguire. What more could you possibly want out of a pub quiz? NOTHING.   In a respectable 6th place, we had The Lone Ranger and Tonto, who may have learned that flattery alone won’t get you far. But keep coming! There’s nowhere to go but up! In 5th, we had Bumble Alone! Bumble Alone also deserves credit for most inventive answer sheet delivery and for sending a pregnant woman running down the stairs to

Benjamin the Mouse
Weazel

So as you all know, I was in Hotlanta this week for a conference. It was fun, exhausting, and lots of work but totally worth it. Since I was going to be out of town all week, I came into the office the weekend before to get a few things done. I brought my dog, Mr. Montague, with me because why not? It’s super productive to work in the office alone, and I was plugging away getting a ton done. At some point, Mr. Monty wandered away from my desk and was doing his own thing exploring the office. A few minutes later, I got up to get something off the printer and noticed a fuzzy ball near a coworker’s desk. Being that Monty

From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow.

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

Force You To Buy Stuff Friday
Cousin Chet

Yes, that’s right the Dodgers got no-hit twice last week. No, I am not thrilled about. But guess what? We’re still six and a half games ahead of everyone else in the division. And we are going to the playoffs. And then we’re going to be eliminated swiftly. Why am I saying this? Because I’m a realist. It would be really nice if we advanced in the playoffs and maybe even won the Series, but come on. Do we really think it’s going to happen? Best case scenario would be that the Giants don’t make the playoffs. And that the Cardinals not win another World Series. Their fans are unbearable. Particularly their fans who are friends of mine. So, it’s

A Bad Case of Charizardism

Empires crumble. Beauties become crones. Fashions become laughable. And not even the mighty Summer Fun could keep their hold on first place going forever, being defeated in the end by Rainbow Shitstorm thanks to lucky/strategic Joker use. Bronze this time went to stalwarts Such Trivia Much Fun! One late-entering team had my favorite name of the night: I Can't Remember The Name Of That Robot!

Pop punk bands are perfect for Friend Zoning
McFly

Or so it seemed in last night's round 2. It does make perfect sense, because pop-punk of the 90s and early 2000s was all about emo lyrics. The most ridiculous of the list in round 2 were probably Sk8er Boi, Teenage Dirtbag and Flavor of the Week. I have the worst memory of the song Teenage Dirtbag, not that it wouldn't have left a dirty taste in my mouth otherwise. I went to a summer camp three years in high school for our choir group. It sounds lame and probably weird, but it was the best fucking thing ever. You can ask everybody that went. The first thing we always looked forward to was that camp. Hardly any adults. We were out in cabins in the middle of nowhere. About 90 high school kids

I found myself reflecting on the recent actions of the one known as The Doctor. Realizing how many lives he had saved, how much good he had done, i decided that there was only one thing that I could do to measure up; I needed to travel back in time to the year 2014 and become a quizmaster to help increase the general useless knowledge of the population. So here I am, Geeks of Fort Collins, to bring to you the knowledge of all space and time, at least the stuff that sort of matters.

John is originally from New York (upstate, the part that doesnt suck)

plays guitar, bass, saxaphone, a bit of keyboard

enjoys long walks off of short piers, picnics at the wrong end of a firing range, and playing in traffic.

I'm still super excited about last night's Quiz for a Cause at The Unicorn. I think we all got a much needed shot in the arm by supporting Puentes and their programs at the quiz and some of you were instantly rewarded with our sweet raffle prizes. I hope you enjoy those puzzles and games and stuff. I seriously did keep one for myself. I'm going to spend my weekend, when I'm not at Bumbershoot or watching college football, building it. I'll give it away in the next couple weeks. You'll take my sloppy puzzle seconds and like it. Speaking of college football, I'll be talking about it ceaselessly over the next 3 months, so get ready for that. I recommend watching a few games, studying

Teams of no more than 6, or is it no more than 6 teams

The seasons have officially changed, and with that the mood. Tonight was a quick and quiet night of trivia. We busted it out it record time and everybody ran home to warm up. Well we at least covered the important things, we quizzed, we paid respect to Wes Craven (Three times) and we drank…so it was a success! We’ll all adjust to the changes around us and we’ll do it again next week! And we’ll all be in a better place because Kim Davis is in jail!!

Quizzin' Ain't Easy
Tim

Hey there.   Geeks Who Drink is not supposed to be easy, even though some nights you smart fellers make it look so. This was not one of those nights. We saw decent enough scores on round two, which helped mitigate the damage, but the rest of the quiz had its way with the lot of you. Round eight was especially brutal, with a high score of only eight. Buck up though, gang. Some days you eat the quiz, some days the quiz eats you.   We still managed to have a damn good time as always, and at the end of the night it was Super Phoenix Friends Force taking care of business to top Kanye 2020 and the rest of the competition.

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!

After a three week sabbatical, I was finally able to return to my second home: The New Heights Grille. I would like to thank Doug and Greg for stepping up and subbing for me in my time of need. It was greatly appreciated!   Rounds 1-3 covered controversial current events, the dreaded friend zone, and rights and freedoms. The Penguinos jumped out to a hot start with their strong familiarity with the friend zone, posting a 14 point score and doubling it with a joker.   Rounds 4-6 covered people with TV in their name, grown up child actors, and Wes Cravins. Three-time defending champs, Pretty Freakin Hard, found the first

Hello all and welcome to the Quiz Time Extravaganza wrap up. Got to taste some beer that doesn't come out till November. Finger Up, tongue out. We had a reasonably rowdy crowd and we of course had the Lawyer teams had a supreme advantage in round three, at the point of actually nailing when the Magna Carta was signed down to the year. Had a team greatly missed tonight, Jan Gortcher, you had my heart kids, thought you were going ot soar to first. But in fact, the winner was What Was Our Name Again? with 70 points. In second, we had Kurt Russel's Moustache with 64 points. Shout out to third, Menace

I was on vacation for two weeks, hit up Washington DC for a week to visit a friend. I did exciting things like help primer a kitchen before it could be painted. Eat pizza and watch movies, walk a pack of pomeranians and basically had a wonderful vacation. But, I have to be honest I missed my quizzers at The Cube. It was great to be back. One other thing I wanted to mention, if you have a chance stop in the cube and get a slice of their sweet potato praline pie. That stuff was simply to die for. Absolutely delicious. We had a quiz. It was the usual 8 rounds and some bonus questions. And we had some winners. I switched things up a bit and opened

Hashtag Hate Is Alive And Well
Mikey DoDo

Rumble in The Pub ends this week, and with it a chapter in NOLA's quiz history. This city had one team step up to the plate to represent us, and that team ran the ball as hard as it could.   #Biohazard can now make claim to be one of the best quiz teams in the entire Geeks Who Drink network. While the final scores won't be announced until next week it can be clearly stated that they've won the southern region in an outright rout. My only hope for the squad is that now that they've gone through the gauntlet, they can learn to take a step back and breath a little from now on.   #Biohazard's win streak has not gone unnoticed.
