In Which the Phantom Rides with the Green Hornet
Mark, International Man of Intrigue

I made my return back to the Brew Werks tonight to another packed bar. Big thanks to QM Dave for covering me in my emergency last week (it's never fun when you get out of a huge work meeting to find out a family member is all of a sudden in the hospital). But we made up for it this week with a whole mess of questions and answers and me making fun of people for saying that Merciless Ming is from Buck Rogers. I mean, seriously. In round one, we had eight straight forward questions on the place that you should never get involved in a land war. That somebody thought that Mecca was in Israel shows

My Safe Word is "Pineapple."
Jake

It was a hot one tonight (well at least by PNW standards), and even warmer in our quiz room at Shanahan’s. But how can it not be? Our quizzers spit hot fire! It was a tough quiz tonight, particularly in the second half. Rounds 5, 6 and 7 had average scores of 3, 5 and 4, respectively. But frankly, while love you all at your best and worst, it’s when you’re at your silliest that I love you most. Take Round 7 for example, titled To Sir, With Love, and featured movies that sound as if they have BDSM titles. If you remembered our

In a land far, far away, in a time in the not-too-distant future, in an era dominated by dragons, one man was born - nay - created - nay - FORGED from the fires of Valhella (which is part Valhalla, part... well, you get it), and came upon this earth seeking geeks, not for punching, but in order to be a part of their geekery. He searched far, wide, deep, across, shallow and even in the fourth dimension for eons until he came upon the great city of Portland, where the geeks flowed like PBR. "Get thee to a nerdery!" they cried, and it was here that the man struck his mighty staff into the earth with the force of a million bluebirds carrying a thousand hippopotami carrying twenty-three tanks, and the earth opened upon to him, releasing the demonspawn of Australia, which all happened to be drunk upon Foster's. After defeating them with his vorpal sword of might, he descended upon Portland (and related metropolitan area) to take his place at the throne of geeks. He made slaves of many, including Jake, who runs pub quizzes!

Recommended For a Good Time!
Bersonality

Hey there, Pub Quiz Players!   Another Tuesday, another pub quiz at Old School Brewing Company. Nice to see all of you playing last night. I do hope we can get the volume situation under control soon. Of course, people should be having a good time, but when it gets so loud I have to repeatedly ask if you all can hear me, something’s gotta give. We’ll see how things go next Tuesday. All of that is not meant to take away from the good time (I think) we all had playing last night. I know I always enjoy hosting for you all…and there are those delicious cookies!   TIDBITS ABOUT THE QUIZ:   Here

Feel Me Flow
Quizmaster Milos

First things first: when a gaggle of kiddos walks back to quiz, all loaded down with serious ice cream cones, maybe you would expect things to pop off. But would you expect said kiddos to then get on their table and throw down sweet dance moves first to Naughty By Nature's "Feel Me Flow," then to (by request) Silentó's "Watch Me" and iLoveMemphis's "Lean and Dabb?" And THEN request "My Boo" by Ghost Town DJs (I have a feeling the parents from team Attempting to Summit had a hand in that request)? If you would expect said things, you are better at expect-o-rating than I. Child Dance Squad: we salute you! Fiona's Furies (we

Obligatory thanks to all who came out to Schmizza last night to play.  I know you could have stayed in to watch Bill Clinton give a speech, but I think what I had to say and the quiz we all participated in will be remembered for far longer and have far greater impact on everyone’s lives, don’t you? Don’t you? I was going to write something based around last night’s quiz, something about how almost all of the historical dramas we saw in the video round are really not great movies and why that is, but then I woke up to the information that a presidential candidate is actively inviting a foreign power to commit cyberattacks on the United States, so,

You guys. YOU GUYS. You guys are the BEST guys in the whole entire universe. You're a sparkly flock of goddamn magical unicorns wrapped in bacon and sunshine. You're the most gorgeous human beings to ever walk this planet we call Earth. You are the cure to all that ails society. You are my favorites. Last night was my final night hosting as Quizmistress at the incomparable Bar Thalia. After two and a half years of harassing you all on the mic, forcing you to listen to my terrible jokes and miserable pronunciations, I have taken my curtain call. You - you glorious people, you - you showed up in full force to bid me adieu, and for that, you have my eternal love and undying gratitude.

19th Century Rent
Drew-a-mania

Rent is a four letter word of which we don't know the meaning to. Hello quiz-a-maniacs I went to thank you for coming out tonight.  You came in in droves and you left as doves, peaceful symbols of Tuesday night well spent.  We 20 teams this evening, eek!  My goodness you broke your own record by 4 teams and nearly broke your quizmaster, but I'm glad you made it out.  It means that a large audience got to witness one of the funniest pairs of wrong answers in my quizzing history.  The question was: Opened as an opera in Cairo in 1871. Premiered as a Broadway musical in 2000. Name that Verdi joint. The answer was (is): Aida However,

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.

Oh, THAT'S what Bloodsport is Really About
Mike

Another full house and another great night of quiz means another morning of waking up hoarse. I tell y’all, I don’t even know why I use a microphone sometimes because I’m screaming the whole night anyway. It’s amazing how rowdy one little neighborhood bar can get on a Tuesday night! Once again, we transformed a typical Tuesday night happy hour into an explosion of tricky and inappropriate questions to compete for cash and prizes. We had another huge turnout – 15 teams – including a majority of new teams that had no idea what the quiz had in store for them. How would they expect a Hillary Clinton or Tracy Flick quote-off round, or a round all about

Hey everybody!  We had a great quiz last night with a crazy surge in teams!  Thanks to everybody that came out, and congratulations to our top two teams, Crotch Blotters and Party Pants Explosion  for playing a REALLY close match all night. The biggest gap between first and second was 4 points all night. We had a lot of fun, and we all learned quite a bit as well. Including a few about Russia:Siberia makes up most of the landmass of Russia.Volga just means moisture.The word "tundra" comes from a combination of Russian and Finnish. That does it for us this week, but

Between a Hard Rock and a Dad Place.
Magic Wendy

Who even goes to the Hard Rock Cafe anymore? From the looks of our visual round scores, I’m guessing none of my quizzers. Although when it comes to actual music, covers or not, unlike Gloria Gaynor, our teams did more than survive, they thrived. The cover of Torn reminded me of the Karaoke for the Deaf version. If you haven’t seen it, google it. During our movie round on royalty, the clip of From Hell reminded us just how hot Heather Graham is, especially as a ginger. We weren’t surprised to know that our quizzers are huge Game of Thrones fans to the point of knowing which two male main-cast members were nominated for Emmys. No wonder I can get a text returned on a Sunday

After many crazy, yet humbling years of pub quiz play, it became obvious there was only one way I was going to know all the answers. No…I’m not talking about cheating. Cheaters never win. Oh, except for Lance Armstrong, A-Rod and chad-powered presidential candidates. 

But honest lil’ me? I chose the high road to the palace of geek wisdom. So here I am. A member of the elite Geeks Who Drink Quizmaster team bringing it every Tuesday night to the Bulldog in Lowertown St. Paul. The wickedly challenging questions will make you smarter and the drinks will make me prettier. So who’s ready for another round?

Triple Threat (Level Midnight)
Darius

For the record, I'm a big pro wrestling fan. I mean, really big. A certain Upstate NY car guy probably can't express how "huge" of a pro wrestling fan I am. This week, WWE was sure to usher in their "New Era" of wrestling with a retooling of their two main shows, Raw and SmackDown Live. If you haven't been watching (too much John Cena!), or haven't ever watched (who's John Cena?), I highly suggest that you tune in. Of course, I'm not getting paid to shill for WWE, I'm getting paid to shill for GWD, so let's get to it! This week's quiz saw the return of some familiar faces at the Olde English Pub. Notably, some familiar faces who don't know their music memorabilia history. I

In Which We Get Slightly Political…
She Wolf

Ever so slightly. Last night was quiz, it was also the first time a woman was named as the presidential nominee of a major American political party. How did we celebrate this historic event? By asking you who said it? Hillary Clinton or Tracy Flick from “Election”. In truth, Hillary Clinton is kind of like a grown-up Tracy Flick running for president of the United States and not for student body president. Meh, they’re basically the same thing. I mean, selecting our next Supreme Court Justices is just as important as choosing the theme for prom. Both will impact lives people! I’m just saying it’s all a matter of perspective. Actually,

Yoko is pissed, y'all

Hey everyone.   Thanks for quizzing last night.   You guys seriously don't know anything about costumes and musicians.   I'm quite offended.   Get your shit together.   Tina Turner is not dead.   I just had to ask someone.   So she is pissed too.   Great job.   You know who is dead?   Half of the Beatles.   Even Yoko Ono is mad.   Oasis?   Seriously?   Everything else was fine I guess.   I'll

I started quizzing way back in 2009 in a little 'ol town called Austin, TX. After making the move to Houston, I became a regular quizzer at Little Woodrow's Rice Village on Tuesday nights. It's more fun to win when you're beating grad students and doctors. A year went by, and I grew into quite the quiz addict. It was time to up the ante. I needed to be closer to the quiz action. At the auditions, I fought other contestants to the death to achieve an unexpected, well-fought victory. I now host Monday and Tuesday evenings while drinking delicious beer to forget the things I did to get here.

Before my quiz life, I attended school in San Antonio, where I became an English major and a rabid Spurs fan. During the day I work as a private tutor and professional taco slinger. When not engaged in any of these wonderful occupations, you'll find me buried in a book somewhere or out and about with my Australian Shepherd, Jam. I can even be spotted playing quiz on a Wednesday or Thursday. I can't quit you, quiz.

Join me for all my hosting smart-assery at Neil's Bahr Monday nights in East Downtown or in Rice Village at Little Woodrow's on Tuesdays.

Based on an experience over a year ago, I pretty much resigned myself to thinking that nobody reads Maus these days. The folks at the Red, however, reassured me.

"You're Not Fully Clean...Until You're Lye Fully Clean"?

With only 4 weeks left of this kiddie roller coaster ride of a thing that I do on Tuesday nights, I fought to hold back the vomiting, which had nothing to do with the quiz, but rather with my own propensity for going too deep for too long (don't presume to know, I enjoy brushing my teeth violently in public places). Anyway.  You were a very lovely and patient crowd.  Good solid colors and you seemed fairly clean as well.  I admire your hatred of round 7, but it's going to be alright.  If your confused, chances are that everyone else is too.  ....... So, yeah.  Thanks.  And good job to

Math is Hard
Linda

Last night there were questions involving math. Math is hard. I don't like math. I didn't take any math in college thanks to my test scores (yeah, I'm super smart) and it was the best thing. I mean, college was great, but not taking math made it even better. Math is stupid. Anyway, quiz! Last night we learned a lot. We learned about Asia and that it doesn't take up quite as much space as we think it is. We learned about Hillary Clinton quotes. We learned that there are some great gender-bent covers of great songs. We learned about foreign frosty things. It was a great time for one and all. Congrats to Titanic Swim Team on their

Linda quizzed for a while, but her brand of oddly specific knowledge (Rockies baseball, insipid romantic comedies, and all things snark) was less conducive to quizzing and more conducive to quizmaster-ing.
