Let Dad Tell You A Story
Quizmaster Mike

When I was a kid, my parents, as many of yours likely did, told me childrens stories and fairy tales. I had two sisters so I pretty much saw every single Disney movie, but I learned all the other stories and such over time. But when I was in high school, we did a unit on real fairy tales and how they’ve changed over time. Imagine the horror on the look of your classmate’s face when she realizes that everything she knew about Cinderella was a lie. She was beaten and berated by her evil step-sisters. There were no singing mice or pumpkin carriages. Just a story of a young woman so overwhelmed by the madness in her life that she gets a chance,

Mike moved down to New Orleans 3 days before Hurricane Katrina hit. Yikes. After spending the next 5 years down there, he packed up his wagon trained and headed West, to the great unknown. There, he met Kent and Eric of the Geeks crew, and he started hosting a quiz in Santa Fe. After denying the seductive as long as he could, Mike returned to his first love, the city of New Orleans. There, he hosts a weekly quiz and gets all the girls.

Mike spent much of his childhood on a farm on the East Coast. He quickly fled the cows, the cold, and the close-by relatives breathing down his neck. He has been known to wander the wasteland alone, picking at the shells of supply trains.

Mike likes warm rain, Planet Earth, any food stuffed with another food, Bugs Bunny cartoons, bacon, Risk, the zombie apocalypse and exclamation points! He hates J-Lo movies, Dr. Phil, small dogs, scented candles, coconut candies, and girls that take a million pictures of themselves.

The Walking Dead Haunts My Dreams
Marianne No Filter

Dreams are weird. Right? I know you know what I mean. They hop from one place to the next. And they just never stop being confusing. Perhaps, one of these days, I'll be able to control them. Know when I'm dreaming. Un-Inception myself (is that even a thing? Probably. If not, I just made it a thing. And you should call it that thing, too. I HERE-BY DECREE, THAT UN-INCEPTION IS A THING!) So, I've been binge-watching The Walking Dead. I stopped watching it in the middle of season 3. Not quite sure why. Probably because I was getting bored. More than likely, though, I got some TV ADD, and just kind of stopped and didn't get back into it. Anyway, I started back up again. And I'm almost

I'll See Your Royal Baby and Raise You 1,000 "Who Cares?"
QuizMaster Mike

I committed the grave sin of getting too complacent last night. It's my own damn fault. When you get a new computer, you are typically under the impression that you aren't going to have to uninstall and reinstall your audio drivers several times before something like the headphone jack works properly. But woe unto me and our quizzers, because that is the tragedy that unfolded last night as I battled with the gods of technology (in vain) to make sound, any sound at all originating from my computer, pipe through the speakers at wonderland. Fortunately, because everyone who quizzes at Wonderland Brewing Co. is a cut above the rest, the emergency non-audio rounds were handled with grace, aplomb,

Goodbye, August!

Hey there, Reader!   The last Monday of August brought out eight teams to play our quiz at the OLD SCHOOL BREWING COMPANY (well, 7 ½  if you count the team that stuck around but stopped handing in answers). Some regulars along with some newbies got to have a good time, as well as hear The Jackson 5 cover Jackson Browne!     TIDBITS FROM THE QUIZ             Wow! Disney really knows how to make fairy tales all nice and neat. Of course, they usually kill off a parent of the main character first.   I can understand bears

Getting Too Political
BostonMcCown

One of the creatures started to charge, bounding toward John on all fours, teeth gnashing, tounge flicking out between bites. His hand wrapped around something in the dark and he swung. Connecting mid jump with the beast and sending it squealing into the bars of the cages, an audible snap of bone and crunch of teeth as it landed face first into the concrete. In John's hand, like a battle axe, was a wooden campaign sign from the bygone political campaign of Deez Nuts 2016. He chuckled to himself a bit remembering the joke campaign slogans, such as "We Lie More Than The Average Politician," And "America! Now With Nuts!" Nuts, it was what was

I still play video games, I play with more expensive toys now a days, but I still play. Between delivering knowledge in the Pub Quiz or delivering jokes on the bar stage, the most important thing is to play.

Chew The Meat, Spit Out The Bones
Bela Lugosi's Dad

A day off is a beautiful thing, especially when a “day on” means dragging yourself out of bed at 6 a.m., through a slight trickle of soap and water that passes for a shower, and straight into the largest cup of coffee you can find. It’s not the worst thing ever, to be sure. People have been doing this “work” thing for a while, now, and it wouldn’t be so popular if they didn’t get something out of it. The issue comes when I’m rocking out QM-style the night before, ESPECIALLY when I have a trainee in tow who actually wants to put some work in.   Those are the most dangerous nights possible.

Fairytales and Fantasy Drafts
The Bearded One

Everybody loves a fairy tale. It hits all the great storytelling goals: there's allegory, morality, fantasy, wish-fulfillment, and children being torn limb-from-limb like the subject of a Cannibal Corpse song. Wait, what? That last one seems a bit questionable, but it's definitely what we opened last night's quiz with.That fairy tale round had 3 perfect scores because I was lenient about The Princess & The Frog, but round 2 was the big breakaway for Charm School Dropouts. I think this is 3 quizzes in a row where I've seen them ace and joker music rounds. That's right, someone had actually heard

Let’s face it, some nights, I’m just not on my game. Whether it because I can no longer tell the difference between a nursery rhyme and a fairy tale, or the fact that I learned how to pronounce that one country from a TV show, my skills can be called in to question.

After our weekly quiz, someone who spent the night just kind of hanging out, not even playing, made a point of complimenting us all on how tough the quiz actually is. This means that, not only are you all good-looking and funny, but you’re all wicked smart, too! I knew there were reasons I liked you all.As for the quiz itself, you knew it was going to be an interesting night when we started out with some twisted events from alternate versions of fairytales.

Welcome back to quiz Monday's at Calhoun's rooftop.  I missed you all all summer long, except for those times where I came back to visit and enjoy the beautiful views, delicious food, and great drinks.  After a summer long hiatus we brought back the quiz last night to a great crowd of geeks.  As it turns out I could have stayed out on the roof, the rain held off but I cowered inside all night anyway. It was my mistake to think that the scores were going to be higher because you all now have another year of college under your belt.  The scores were ummm not good.  We still had to crown someone a winner though Congrats to Trivia Beersuit for winning

Undoing Disney’s Damage
Extra Terresticle

Disney’s damage? What could I possibly mean by that? I’ll explain. Many of the fairy tales Disney adapted for film were much darker in their original versions. Take The Little Mermaid for example. In the original story by Hans Christian Andersen, the Little Mermaid does want to be human and have legs, does make a deal with the Sea Witch where she gives up her tongue for the ability to walk, and does have to get a prince to marry her. But that’s where the similarities end. In the OG version, if the prince marries another woman, the Little Mermaid will perish and dissolve into sea foam. Unfortunately for her, the prince chooses someone else, dooming her to die.

Making Fairy Tales Fun Again
JacobNusbaum

Hello and welcome to the Monday Night Geeks Who Drink at MVP’s blog. Tonight we had a round that exposed fairy tales for what they really are. Stories to scare children into behaving. Kids’ books today just don’t do that. They’re all like “try new things” or “plant a tree”. Some of Aesop’s stuff is okay in the “don’t let yourself get swindled or you’ll get stabbed in the face by a scorpion” sorta way, but it’s just not the same as the Grimm fairy tales. Maybe they wouldn’t be as effective today as they were a century ago. Kids are exposed to too much imagery with TV and the internet and video games. I

Don't Let The Bed Bugs Bite
The Comedy Freek

Hey Party People, Thanks to round one last night, with it’s theme of Sleep Tight, Kids, I think I may have figured out what’s wrong with my generation. You see, I described a version and my Quizzers had to name the fairy tale or kids story. It made me realize just how much Disney has butchered the real stories. And how fucked up Grimm Fairy Tales really are. These stories are morbid. Suicide by pulling your legs off? Cutting off your toes and heals to fit in a shoe? Bears ripping apart little girls and a princess setting a frog on fire while trying to chop off it’s head? Yuck. We had these stories read to us before bed. (nightly!) And when we were younger,

Wake Up, It's (Almost) The First Of The Month
Tenacious E

Monday again! A new week brings forth a new round of quiz!   This quiz started out a little gruesome and macabre, which I love. Horror movies are quite possibly my favorite genre of movies. The horror-loving community lost Wes Craven this week. He is the genius behind Nightmare on Elm Street. Last House on the Left and The Hills Have Eyes. Seems fitting to start out with questions about not-so child friendly fairy tales and serial killers.    I was also excited to see Atlanta in not one but two questions!
