If you haven’t noticed already, we are in a golden age of television. That statement might seem inaccurate if you are flipping through the hundreds of reality shows and one-season sitcoms and you land on CSI: Scranton, but it’s true. Despite all the garbage, there has not been, in a long time or maybe ever, so many well-produced, well-funded, well-written tv shows. The era’s beginning was probably with The Wire, and hit its

I’m Gonna Kick Em Out!
St. Jimmy

Not many people at the quiz last night were familiar with the MC5’s Kick Out the Jams. In fact no one got it, but man do I love that song. I first heard it on the Rage Against the Machine cover album Renegades. The Rage version certainly has their signature heaviness, but the Rick Rubin production just makes it too slick and it loses some of the shambolic feeling. When you hear the MC5 play it, you know that the song is their’s. With its speed and power, you get the sense that the song is this close to failing apart. MC5 broke up a long time ago and a couple of key members have passed away, but I did see guitarist Wayne Kramer perform the song along with Tom Morello (Rage Against

Pokemon GOAT
Julie

  Dear diary, I recently downloaded Pokemon Go and I can honestly say that I think it is a goddamn masterpiece. All of the hype I experienced as a kid when I ran into something in the grass or in the caves happens in real life and I love it. There was a Charmander in my dirty dishes the other day, how great is that? A lot of people have been hating on Pokemon Go. To be honest I’m pretty sad for them. Like, I get that people are being dingbats and running into traffic to Eevees and whatnot and that’s not cool but they were going to be dingbats no matter what, don’t blame Pokemon Go. If something that makes other people happy brings you anger you should

Rescue in Denali!!!
Siler

After a nerve-wracking 3 days, our friend Mukunda was returned to us safe and relatively sound. He had separated from his hiking group and was lost in the Denali National Park for nearly three days. Thankfully he was found last night and was cause for many celebrations around town. We had a strong turnout of 8 teams competing tonight. The ever-present Crunchwrap Supremes and Alcoholics Nenanamous, as well as our bar team striving for their first Geeks Who Drink victory, Dont Get Lost in the Park While Drinking Your Gin In The Hood, a cheeky nod to our rescued brother. Competition was super-tight, and ultimately

Soft drinks do not give you toxic shock syndrome

Tonight’s Round 6 was pretty cool if I do say so myself.  Normally when I think a round is super-duper-funsies-awesome, my quizzers hate it.  Tonight that was not the case, and we loved all of it!  For those not in the know, it was called Hit movies, as described by someone who hasn’t seen them.  It was fantastic…if you’re expecting me to tell you all about it, then tough titties!  You should be at quiz next time!  The only thing I can tell you about that round is that Starfuckers and Swamp Thing were not answers.

Consistency Pays Off!!
Victor

Yeah, yeah. Round 6 was a real tit ringer. Let’s face it. There’s a reason it was titled: “Hit Movies, as Described By Someone Who Hasn’t Seen Them.” It’s cuz you have to watch a lot of movies to do well in a movie themed round. So, watch movies. Lot’s of them. Like an ass-ton of them. And all will be right in your world. We had the busiest night in the year that I’ve been QM at the Torrance Tavern tonight! We had 11 in total and only two left early and one came late. It was really awesome too that Two Hot Chicks showed up the round before I announced the standings, because I got to say, “’Two Hot

This Quiz Brought to You by Donald Drumpf and Woody Youwantabeerleson
Hadji

We had a lot of good wrong answers tonight.  Between Barney Bartendson, Woody Youwantabeerleson, Martinique Martinison and Blorty Florpledorper, I think we have a great set of fictional bartenders.  Lots of teams put down Alzheimer’s for a question about thorough and organized disorder, which I’d almost have to say is the polar opposite of OCD.  I also don’t think the hit song Up for Butt Stuff was written by Aerosmith.  Or perhaps anyone for that matter.  Also, I wish I had seen the Star Wars movie starring Lawrence Skywalker.  Other than that little flub about Star Wars though, y’all crushed the movie round.  Our third place

Ladies and gentlemen of Velvet Melvin, it was an honor to your final Geeks Who Drink host. I know that many Quizmasters have come and gone. I know you started out with the zany antics of Quizmaster Kyle and Quizmaster Cody, and last week your quiz was proctored by the lovely Quizmistress Callina (is Quizmistress a word or is Quizmaster gender neutral?), but it was truly a privilege to be there for your final night. Though no longer will we be having Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at Velvet Melvin, you should feel lucky to know that you have one of the friendliest bars in town. I can personally attest to this as I have been at Velvet Melvin for many a birthday party where many fish bowls have been

Date #3: The Snark Strikes Back
Jake

Oh, hello, Henry’s! It’s Date #3 with you here, and I gotta say, it seems like every week gets better! There was tons of snark tonight from most every team, and when you give as good as ya get, that’s class. Take, for example, the luminaries of Cali Quizzers. They schooled me (and rightly so) on how to properly say the cities of Wisconsin (that’s Wis-CAHN-sun, right?) and the Trump supporter in the group was good-natured with me, despite my being fairly rough with the Drumpster. We also had the relatively quiet in person, but wicked funny on paper team of The Dorbitals, who gave the

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!

When a "D" Looks Like an "R"
Nick

Luckily, the final score made a moot point out of my not being able to tell an "R" from a "D" from a question in round 7. We almost had a tie for 2nd place, but Diodro came up 2 points short. We had a hearty discussion about mismanagement of the joker; they played it in round 1 and it would have been much wiser to have played it during any of the 3 rounds worth 16 points. Joker mismanagement is a common theme at the quiz on Mondays, but I try to use it as a learning experience. And how about that round 6? It took me a few readthroughs to "get it", but after I got it, I was a hilarious round. I kind of want to see the movies that were being described. Luke and his glove. Wesley Snipes'

The Dream We Can only Hope to Dream
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

And that dream is….a Trump-free edition of, well I would say the world. I mean, honestly I feel like a world free of the hate that Trump spews could only be better. That’s all I have to say on him though because I’m not going to waste anymore of my time thinking about it…until I have to start pledging my allegiance to him every morning like I’m in North Korea or something. I think that people trying to describe something they’ve never seen or experienced is one of two things: either hilarious or horrible. There is no in between in my opinion. I once listened to a girl on the light rail try to explain a comic book character story arch when

(The following blog post is an editorial piece by the writer, and in no way reflects the stance or opinions of Geeks Who Drink, Rock Bottom, or any other organization which may be offended by my taking this opportunity to voice a personal political point of view.) I'll come out up front by saying this: I will never support Donald Trump for president. Very few people I know do, and those who do have fundamentally different priorities than I do when it comes to who they'll vote for. We're still friends, with more in common than what separates us, but on this matter we don't see eye to eye. The reason there's a colossal majority of people in my sphere who don't support Trump is simple:

Hello dear readers! I can finally say with confidence that Summer is upon us here in Portland, Oregon.

'Sup, Wibbyans?   Thanks for coming out tonight and weathering the heat with me over a few pints and a quiz. I was really stoked that our first round, Recently In Stuff, was subtitled Trump-Free Edition. Because with all the insanity going on, I was really looking forward to a whole round (preferably quiz) without that terrifying reminder of our impending doom. One of you ended up putting Trump as your answers for a few questions, though, so I thank you for not leaving me with that peace I was so dearly craving. We also had Trump as an answer in Round 7, which served as a killing blow.   Thanks, quiz. E tu?   Our
