These Are Labs Who Died
Hopeless Semantic

 What you may have taken away from tonight's quiz is that 22 Labrador Retrievers went into the making of "Marley and Me." But what you might not have known is that all 22 are dead. Here's how they died. 1. Ruffles- Hit by a car thrown at him by a very large giant. 2. Pickles- Went swimming right after he ate. 3. Marshmallow- Waited 30 minutes after eating to go swimming but sat on the drain and had his guts pulled out. 4. Terry- Forced to play Russian roulette. 5. Hercules- Had an altercation during a dogs playing poker game. 6. Snuggles- Blew up.  7. Artie- Got shanked in dog-prison. 8. Petrov- Euthanized 10.

Are you for real? Three teams with President Kanye names and NO ONE came up with The Kanye West Wing? For shame. Kanye West 2020, West/Swift 2020 and The West Administration I'm glad you think this is funny now because it gonna suck in 2019 when you realize he actually is doing this and Kim K becomes First Lady and Idiocracy looks more like a documentary than ever.

Remember Unwritten Law?
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. Southern Star rolled in with a bunch of goodies. Pint glasses, koozies, stickers, and a gift basket full of goodies for the first place team. (Seriously, I want that stein!) So random acquired knowledge. Growing up in the 90s, I have a bit of a hard on for alt-rock and punk-rock. My play list is full on swole of the genre. Mid scoring, Unwritten Law’s “Seeing Red” came on. Next thing I know a waitress popped up, quite excited to hear it. “Do you know the make up brand Two Faced?” I didn’t. I wear Urban Decay. “Nope. Maybe? I have no idea, but I don’t think so.” Waitress replies, really happy, “Well,

Howdy! My name is Katie, I enjoy long walks on the beach, pasta, and Christmas lights in July. The first things people notice about me are my subtle sense of fashion and my typically reserved demeanor. I have a penchant for video games, with a fixation on SNES games of yore. I'm only 5'2", but I make up for it by wearing 4-6 inch platforms. I'm a HUGE Twilight fanboy-girl.

Y’all were lookin sweet tonight.  Inks took us to the gun show.  There was that 3 Girls 1 Cup team that were smokin’.  It was lovely.

We're Officially a Fire Hazard
Khaleesi

We had such an overwhelmingly large turn out for quiz tonight that I'm pretty sure we became a fire hazard at some point. There were people swinging from the rafters. I'm flattered that you all like to come watch me eat and drink and occasionally talk into a microphone. Wes Craven has unfortunately passed away. I'm sorry if I'm the way that you find out. In the visual round, he was haunting peoples dreams in movie dream sequences. I joked that if you could find his face and circle it, you would get all 8 points for the round... some people were pretty enthusiastic about that option. In the round with increasing syllables, I always like to call out a team that got

In Which Your Quizmaster Mourns Wes Craven
Fabrian

First a moment of silence for our dear departed horror maestro.Okay. I was pretty bummed out about Wes Craven y'all, but I guess he did live a pretty full life. I know my life is better because of his weird little horror flicks (Elm Street, People Under the Stairs, Hills Have Eyes) and his meta-horror satires (New Nightmare, Scream). I'm gonna miss that guy. Okay, sadness dealt with, let's talk about tonight's quiz, which even had Mr. Craven sneak into the visual round.Oh, the various thoughts!:MC Ren may have a point, but I'd be more pissed if

A Picture Is Worth $1.25
Worst Corey Ever

And I’m back! Back from vacation in CA, back from NH, and back to CG for a wonderful pub quiz! And on Allston Christmas, to boot! Hopefully you all made off with some wonderful loot and a heart that isn’t too heavy from all of the traffic exhaust. But seriously, I hear that shit is actually bad for your heart. So you know… lay low for a little while. We had some pretty tough rounds tonight, but still wound up with some scores close to 80 near the apex. Definitely proud of our top finishers Conservative Koch Habit (a solid rumble contestant) and Dikembe Mutombo (a solid something or other) who pulled 14 and 15 out of their asses on
[ ...more... ]

WARNING: The following is top secret. It will most certainly stay that way, as nobody is ever going to read it.

I know everything there is to know about me. Nobody knows more about me than I do, and most likely nobody ever will. If I were a pub quiz, you would fail.

I am a recovering midwesterner on my ninth step (seeking apologies from everyone who was responsible for my being in the midwest as long as i was). I'll soon be moving on to the tenth step, where I take inventory of how my own actions made such a thing possible.

I am a (mostly) proud BU Terrier (I say mostly because though our hockey team is good, I'd never say I'm proud of them) with a degree in business (the highest of the classical sciences). Though Quizmaster is what I would consider my "day job" I'm also a CPA in my free time. I know what you're thinking, and NO... I DON'T do taxes. Not all CPAs do taxes. I am one of those who does not.

I do not like eating animal. Nothing against the animals. And nothing for the animals. I just don't do it. Don't ask. Or do. I don't give a shit (see Nick Swardson, All Day, for proper accenting of that last sentence).

I am a fan of penguins, owls, sheep, and dragons. This is because I can draw them at a 3rd grade level. All of my other drawing skills are closer to the Pre-K level.

I am a gamer at heart. Talk to me about Final Fantasy or Zelda. Don't talk to me about Halo, COD, or any other FPS disasters. I'm a classic JRPG lover and will defend the genre to the end of the earth. May the various gods help you when you try to argue it with me. "But I can't see people's heads blow up when I kill them!" "You're an idiot. I win."

I am about 5' 10". I am VERY Caucasian (read pale... not my fault). I am a musician. I am well read in Sci-Fi. I am scrawny. I am mostly happy. I am the warrior. I am not your father's oldsmobile.

But mostly, I am. (I think.)

Sacred Holidays
Missus H

Merry Allston Christmas y’all!   I hope that at least some of y’all celebrated the eve of one of our most sacred Boston holidays in your slightly inebriated states last night and that you were able to bring home some cool shit. I know there were a couple of things sober Missus H had her eye on for the taking after the quiz. A couple of things for this outstanding craft I’ve had on my real life Pintrest board which is really just a glorified binder of printed out webpages, comments and all. It’s a true testament to how much of an old lady I am. Anywho, 1 of the things I would have had to have crossed into an enclosed “dumping area” to

Once upon a time there was a girl, whose only goal in life was to leave the great state of Texas. She dreamt and hoped and prayed and wished that she could escape and move to some big fancy city in the north. But dreaming and hoping and praying and wishing don't make things happen. Thank goodness the little girl was smart enough to figure that much out. So the little girl decided that the best course of action was to turn into a super nerd who was awesome at everything and somehow she finagled an escape plan to Boston, which is where she remains to this very day. And she doesn't dream or hope or pray or wish for things to just happen, she simply kicks ass and takes names, but is really, really nice about it and gets shit done. The end.

Ohh Look at All the Lovely Pencils
Alison C

One of my quizzers mentioned to me in passing tonight that babies aren't actually cute. Now, I might have to disagree on today of all days simply because my newest niece was born today at about 3:00pm. Now, despite having 9 months to think on the subject, my sister and brother-in-law failed to arrive at a name for the delightful angel. So for now, she's going by No Name, which I choose to pronounce No-naw-may. It's Arabic...like one of those foreign languages from our speed round. Speaking of speed rounds! We haven't seen one of them in a while. And based on your scores, I can only assume that you didn't really miss it much, as our foreign language speed round was one of the lowest

Apart from two misguided years in my youth, I've been a tried and true Texan all my life.

Here's a little bit about me: 

  • Shamelessly obsessed with all things Harry Potter, Supernatural, film, and BBC Sherlock.
  • Did gymnastics for 9 years...and yes, I can still do a flip.
  • I've auditioned for So You Think You Can Dance.  I did this to fulfill a bucket list item.  They told me a I was fat. They lie.
  • My favorite movies are a toss up between The Shawshank Redemption, The Princess Bride, The Usual Suspects, Lucky Number Slevin, and Love Actually.
  • My music tastes are as eclectic as my movie tastes.
  • I love to talk!

So come swing by and say hi!

Netflix still has DVDs?
Mark

Geeks!   I bet a lot of you use Netflix. It's a pretty popular online movie streaming service.   What you might not know is that they will send you DVDs in the mail. Yeah, remember DVDs? They're how people in the 00's used to watch BluRays.   The bigger takeaway from this is that the mail service part is still happening. So many of Netflix subscribers are online only, I bet.   Not me. I use both. Because there's nothing quite like having a "New Release" from six months ago collecting dust on the coffee table while they reach into my wallet month after month.   It's kind of my own fault.

Philosophical question of the night: Is World of Beer LoDo a sports bar? Officially, on a nightly basis, is this how you would describe it? I guess I'll find out come the beginning of hockey season (which is what I care about) and/or football season (which thank the good spaghetti monster there is no Tuesday Night Football (that I've ever heard of)) whether quiz gets put on the back burner. Hopefully all you crazy fans of pub quiz will ensure that doesn't happen, by filling the place up on wintry Tuesday nights! Back to the reason I asked this question – the Rockies.

SEPTEMBER IS HERE! (aka To Hell With August)
Turducken Cupcake

As you guys probably know by now, I'm not a gigantic fan of the summer, with August being the cruelest month of them all.  It's not that I dislike summer - I love grilling out, having a poolside beer, and taking in the occasional baseball game, but really spring, fall, and even winter are just so much better.  Winter is #3 because if the cold is brutal enough, it is pure misery, but there's usually some relief between cold fronts for reasonable weather.  Spring is great because the weather is great for travel and the NBA is in full swing.  Fall is superior to all other seasons, to the degree that it's not even fair.  Cooler weather, the state fair, pumpkin everything,

The Sub Life: CLASSIFIED
Radius

I love subbing. I think it's fun. And it's an opportunity to comment on Quizmaster Christy's incessant need to be in musicals. Well, I'm currently in this musical, too - BUT THAT'S BESIDE THE POINT. She was gone and I was here, basking in the warm glow of seven receptive teams (4 of which have been RUMBLIN' something fierce). I (figuratively) kicked my feet up and (literally) beamed as the final point totals squeezed closer and closer together. I have to come clean. At first, I accidentally misplaced Techno Lobster's Round 3. I did find it though and tallied it rightly into the scores you now see. I felt badly about this, not because

Hello, Internet!

Darius is originally from New Jersey, so please keep that in mind when he talks about his love for 24-hour diners (garlic bread and chocolate pudding is a typical order). Some of his favorite things include dogs, zombies, and snickerdoodle cookies.

You can usually find him with a stout in his hand and scruff on his face. Darius likes to make YouTube videos and do theater things, too. Despite his super tough look, he's kind of a sweetheart and will most likely melt if you pay him a compliment. Keep paper towels handy.

Mary and Frank were the ONLY TEAM to get the Kelly Clarkson question. Way to be the worst, everyone else. Eat, Sleep kicked ass, per usual.
