Those Millennials Need to Step It Up
Please don't call me Matt. I hate that.

Sadly (for you) there are parts of the world you just can’t get into unless you happen to be a Quizmaster. I say “sadly” because you are truly missing out – putting several QMs in the same place is a guaranteed laugh riot. Take what you know about me; now imagine many of me in one place at the same time (sorry for the nightmare fuel). Events like Geek Bowl or any big city themed Quiz will allow you to see the sheer beauty of the collection of egos, attitudes, and weirdness that make up our staff, and I will tell you right now that it is well worth the price of admission. Likewise there are parts of the interwebs that are inaccessible to you mere mortals; we have our

Matthew likes to think of himself as a collector of things: books, movie knowledge, fat housecats, ex-girlfriends, bruises, etc. He also has a world-class collection of memories of hangovers past.

In a perfect world he would Quiz Monday-Friday and spend the weekend building stupid old cars, but in this imperfect world he only gets to Quiz once a week and he doesn't even have a driver's license. He is working on the formula for making that perfect world happen, but until then you'll just have to settle for those two nights a week.

When no otherwise preoccupied with work or shit like that you can find him cursing at the Rockies game on the vintage radio in his garage while he pretends to be productive with a bike or some such, or walking around West Glenwood. He just loves to walk for some reason.

If you want to give him a gift his favorite things in the world are anything vintage, baseball-related, or Italian. He also accepts cash.

Claims to Fame
Elephant Gangsta Tooth

Hiya quizzers! It's another week of quizzing, but this time… the sun is out! Let's celebrate and go outside- wait, wait, wait, the clouds are back, time to hide- no NO THE SUN IS BACK OUT! Woooooo time to- nope, nope, nope, it is hiding again. This weather is more moody than I am when PMSing! That's a lie, me PMSing = raging Midwest tornados. I have some interesting facts regarding this weeks quiz! Now, I know that everyone has their miniature claim to fame some way or another, but we all share the same feeling of pride for our family members (or guilt, if, you know, your grandfather was Hitler or something).

My name is Alison (aka Elephant Gangster Tooth) and I come from the far land of New Mexico and moved to Denver in 2013. I geek out when it comes to video games and fitness, which contradict each other nicely. I recently got married and sold my soul to my husband Jeff in exchange for an endless supply for Starbursts.

The Baseballs, Am I Right?
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Seriously! I saw the name, theme and answer clips for that round and I was terrified. Just a little. Then I listened to it. Not to denigrate the fine audio round engineers at Geeks Who Drink Laboratories, but every once in a while we get a “cover songs” round, as performed by the Zanzibar Ukulele Quartet and I have to apologize to the bar staff as the half-dozen folks not quizzing angrily storm out to protect their eardrums. I love that sort of thing, you love that sort of thing, that’s why we’re pals! But for bridging the gap between Drink and Geek, a softer touch is often appreciated.   So thank

Goodbye Again
RachilleRusche

It is with a sad, sad heart that I write this blog.  It is the last one for Geeks at The Ale House.  I'm really hoping we are somewhere else soon, and not have to wait almost a year!  I've had a lot of fun this time around, and got to know some amazing new people.  I know that they will come when a new location is set, but it will be sad not seeing them every week. The only upside to this, is that now I don't have to rush my oldest kid through his kids bowling league so I can get to work on time. Speaking of children, CONGRATULATIONS to Shawn and Katie on the arrival of Henry.  He is adorable, and I can't wait

Hello out there!  I guess you want to read a little about me huh?  Well, I've always been a nerd/geek at heart, never really looked much like it though.  My friends nicknamed me the 'Hot Nerd'.  But, I've always been into things all Geek.  In fact, I own a game called Chez Geek.  I'm a huge game person, wether it is board games or actual role-playing games.  And yes, I was a LARPER at one point, don't hold it against me.  I've been living in Colorado for 6 years now, I'm a transplate from Idaho (no potato or 'ho jokes please).  I love watching movies and reading books.  I read over 30 books last year alone.  I'm married (sorry guys), and I have three boys.  They keep me on my toes and I am happily passing on my love for all things nerdy to them.  Besides being a Quizmaster I also host Karaoke, DJ and act.  I do local theater productions when I can, and I act in independent films, commercials as well.  I also love to sing, all the time.  I think I drive my kids nuts sometimes, but I just can't stop!  Well, that's fraction of who I am in a nutshell.  See you all in the real world and not just online!

So last night, we had a lot of head scratchin' at our round 2, namely a song called Hello by Martin Solveig, a French House DJ who looks like Michael Cera decided to go into tennis. That song was featured in a Tim Horton's commercial not aired in the US and in the worst selling edition of the Dance Central, so it's understandable you had issues with it. Worry not, now you know this song and you'll totally be familiar with it next time it rolls around! :-) The dickpunching round 2 lead to the top three being one point a part, but ultimately Beach

Growing up in the Deep South, I learned early on that everyone was a piece a shit and only thing deserving of my love were basset hounds.

I moved to the white people Narnia known as UT in 2008. Since then, I've become a national roller derby announcer and a part of Geeks Who Drink.

It's Like I Never Left.
Stephanie "Poolside" Stone-Robb

Quite a turn out for our holiday Monday.  The rain parted just long enough to fill up the patio as well.  We had a lot of first time quizzers who played in some pretty big groups.  Look.  You're popular.  I get it.  But you know what else makes you popular?  Winning prizes.  Cut those apron strings! Shun your friends for the glory of a movie ticket.  You'll thank me later. We got real selfish with round one, and were then proud to be Americans in round two.  Also, Britney Spears thinks Japan is in Africa.  Just let that sink in. That music math round.  Look, you either know it or you dont.  Thankfully, it was

Hey Everybody...It's Pat.  No, not the sexually ambiguous character from that SNL sketch (I wish), but the man with the lower body of a child bearing woman, except my vagina's an outey. So, I guess sort of ambiguous, but I promise I'm super cool.  I'm a 26 year old high school English teacher in training.  Turns out I love the sound of my own voice so much that I thought I ought to get this job talking in front of strangers on top of teaching their kids.  I am a former full time stand up comedian/imporviser, doing that as much as I possibly still can, so forgive me in advance for constantly trying material on you without you knowing. I don't know what else to say about myself...I like dogs, the Dodgers, and American Lit; so if you're up on any of those then let me know cuz we'll be friends.  If you wanna know anything else just ask, I'm approachable, I swear...I don't bite...too often (only 5 times in my life, which is only like 1 person every 5.2 years).  So there!
