Vacation Starts...Now!
Killer B

Guys, I am hours away from vacation so I'm going to keep this short and sweet.   Boom! Eighth Round Joker! I love love love that shit and The Walking Dead Poet's Society pulled it off tonight! With three 16 point rounds there were lots of opportunities and teams took advantage of them but this team stuck it out, scored well and ultimately took home the prize.   Who's this blond bitch? took a well deserved second after struggling in the two final rounds. It was Silvia Plath. She's a poet. She's not Dr. Seuss or Maruice Sendak but she wrote...who cares???! I'm on vacation.    Back

I'm Blake Ritchen and I became a Quiz Master for the power. Nowhere else in my life can I tell people not to fuck with me so calmly or without chance of altercation. As a substitute teacher I'm supposed to stay away from words like that, though from the number of elementary students who've told me I look like the guy from The Hangover I'm going to assume they've heard that and worse. The power is intoxicating. I get to choose what music you listen to, what prize to award for the email bonus question (from the prizes given to me to award), and in which inflection I will read each question. I also get to drink for free, meet new people, tell jokes, yada, yada, I'm boring myself.
I have spent more and and more time recently with my new best friend, Netflix. If you dropped your Netflix plan over their failed summer business plans you're nuts. Why don't you just move to western Pakistan because the IRS was a week late on your tax return? Seriously, it's amazing and has made me much happier than any real person in my life ever could. I've prepared for the zombie apocalypse with The Walking Dead, a life in menial jobs with The Office and Party Down, and there's a movie where nun's get totally naked. Get a friend Netflix for the holidays or a birthday, or just give them your password so you don't have to spend another eight dollars a month.
I teach, I quiz, I master, I bait fish hooks when I visit my grandfather in Minnesota, I read but have recently just been waiting for the movie to come out, and I've lived in Denver my whole life. I also work at a sports bar and basically have the job of changing channels for people, an easy enough job most days but it has made the target of many a crazed sports fan who is unwilling to turn his head at all to watch his game. Still, I love it, and like I said at the start, I like having the power.

After a trying week, it was so nice to be back in the warm bosom of Seedstock with my happy quizzers and awesome staff.  And it didn’t hurt that tonight’s food truck, Spudz,was excellent, and Brewmaster Jason had my Broyhan back on tap.  All in all, a great night of much-needed frivolity and fun.   I learned a lot tonight, including the fact that Bea Arthur was a marine, Dune is boring and no one remembers it, and everyone loves the song Candy Girl by New Edition.

Trivia vs. Trivin
AlexRice

Trivia Newton John and Trivin 4 the Night have basically become the Lakers and Celtics of the 1980s. The teams took first and second for the third straight quiz Tuesday, with Trivia rebounding after falling to Trivin last week. The former just eked by this time, scoring 87 to their rivals' 86, meaning Trivia has outscored Trivin by just three points in the past three weeks. Amazingly, both teams put up 16-point rounds tonight, with Trivin showing off their wide range of musical knowledge in Round 2 (we had Toto, TLC and The Pixies tonight, among others) and Trivia displaying their movie smarts (Back to the Future, No

Eight Rounds to Midnight
Eric

I had a fantastic time filling in at The Ainsworth tonight! The score was volatile over the first three rounds—The Midnight Society and O’Trivia Newton John jokered impressive round 2’s, and Lochte’s Loaded used his on an impressive round 3. Round three was a particularly entertaining sooner or later round, as I always enjoy seeing the confusion lift along with the extra clues, though it’s often, sadly, too late. At the end of that jumping around, The Midnight Society was in first, trailed by Lochte’s Loaded, and

Another great quiz tonight, maybe the best to date. Joining some of our regular crowd, we had travelers from Chicago, South Bend, and Myrtle Beach. It was a close quiz with wild dynamism. Dynamism, people! Marky Mark Missed the Mark just barely missed the mark, hanging out in the top three all night long. Trivia Newton John had the most beloved team name by audience vote.

For Two Points: What Number Am I Thinking Of?
Sally

Sometimes it is Lupus, Dr. House and tonight was our first Quiz for a Cause at the blind pig to raise money for Lupus Research Alliance! Our winning team took home $70, but we're so generous that they donated it back to the group. Way to go, Fassbender's Dick Got Robbed in Rio!    Tonight's round three was all about top 5 billed actors and we learned that two teams thought that The Secret Life of Walter Schmitty is a movie where Ben Stiller is billed third. Not a movie, but also he is the star of the movie you're trying to remember. Also, Marion Cotillard isn't in the top 5 billed in Dark Knight Rises, which is some total bullshit.    Favorite

Battle of the Ages

Ironically enough, tonight it didn't rain at quiz for the first time in some weeks, so we had a round about rain instead. Harvey Keitel and Amy Poehler were quiz twins, both being mentioned in two separate questions. We learned a lot about unexpected members of the Marine Corps, with a round title referencing a reference to the Mexican-American War and the Barbary Wars. First place tonight was Who Brought the MF-ing Kids, who blew away the competition, including their own aforementioned offspring (Bubble Kids). Second place was a tie between Globogym Purple Cobras and Spelling Doesn't Count, which

Moonshine Ended A Beautiful Quiz
He Who Shall Be Ignored/Obeyed About 50/50

It was a bleak, bleak night when his office mates took up Arfwyldo’s invitation to come to quiz, but tonight, they came. In droves. Which worked out nicely, because there was a question where Burgess Meredith was part of the question. Arfwyldo thought about how he’d met Mr. Meredith when he was working illegally mowing lawns on the beach in Malibu. He’d asked him about playing the Joker and he’d been punched in the face by the diminutive man. Of course, he’d gotten a fruit basket from him the next week, although, since he didn’t actually watch TV, he hadn’t known why. It was well into

Blast Fee Me

How does one guarantee a spot in Hell? Easy, talk shit about Da' Jesus. When he was running around the world burying dinosaur bones with the ol' man, do you think he was singing songs by T-Rex or Mastadon. Or maybe simply Dinosaur, Jr. Either way, I wish he had kept all the bones together. It's already such a hassle finding these things, why aren't they at least easy to piece together. Speaking of which, if Jesus buried the bones, shouldn't people be thanking Jesus everytime they fill their car up with fossil fuels? Fish food for thought...   Even though I am skeptical of an afterlife,

We made it past the loud people who chose to sit in between all of you quizzers and myself to loudly complain about work. (PS- they got their check and left as soon as the quiz was over. fuckers.)  We had a great start to the quiz with everyone getting 7 or 8 points for round 1 and Puss n Boots scoring 32pts for round 2 and Captain Archer Sucks for getting 32 pts on round 3.  I also want to give a shoutout to Tequila Mockingbird for giving me the cleverest answer and refusing to put Pat Sajak as their first answer in round 6 because Vanna White is clearly the person who runs that

School's In, But Summer Ain't Over Yet
Geoff (like Chaucer)

In this edition of Geeks Who Drink: Triple Tiebreaker Action! I Fought The Law and Won I wish I had something witty and topical to put in this space. Tonight's crowd at The Draft was a little lighter than usual.  School started this week in Houston and the surrounding areas, so I anticipate a lot of you parent quizzers were at home making sure your quizlings I mean children got their beauty sleep.  Still, ten teams is nothing to scoff at. So off we went into the quiz!  We got down and dirty, read the marquee backwards, talked office gossip, and identified dead poets.  Oh, yeah, there was that whole tilted Hitler round too.  We

Leave it to Tim Curry to de-sex and then over-sex a smoke amoeba.  It's good to know that Tim Curry's sultry voice could make the evil that is global warming into a fascinating piece of character work that I would totally love to see in a spin-off musical. Hey you, yes you, the only person reading a blog (albeit excellent blog) about the quiz you were at on Tuesday. You know what? How crazy would it be if there was someone also writing a blog about the quiz? What if it was better?

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.

That answer may have been incorrect for the movie mashup round, but still something I would absolutely watch if it existed. Someone please make this happen.   It was a close quiz last night, but fortunately for The Other Guys' self esteem, they managed to reclaim first place even if it was only by a single point. Introverted Whizkids took second with Steven Hawking's School of Dance in third place all within a few points of each other.   And on the other end of the spectrum... there was Bob R Us.

School is back in schedule so the crowds are a little smaller and more people like to be outside. But that does not mean that we dont have serious players. Newbies keep coming and allstars are always trying to maintain their reigns. It was a hardcore night tonight. Had some preseason football going but a lot of action with the brains.   Round 1 was a good one. Most teams doing between 6 - 8 points. It was like that for a little. One of the best audio rounds I had seen in a while. I knew and loved every song that was played. Sadly not too many teams shared my musical knowledge. Round 3 was also a tough one for the groups. Most people could only guess after
