Knock It Off
Quizmaster Mike

When I was a kid, we never got name-branded goods. We always got the knock-offs, and we were damned happy to get anything. When they invented those giant bags of cereal, we excitedly took home bags of “Chocolate Puffs.” We’d never get Kleenex or Band-Aids, just the cheapest version of those products. And it’s translated to how I shop today. Why get Benadryl when you can get Wal-dryl at half the price? I’ve got friends who swear that the lower-cost versions of medicines are less effective, but to hell with them, they don’t understand science. But when it comes to certain products, the knock-off just doesn’t

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.

Welcome Back
Stephanie "Poolside" Stone-Robb

I had the pleasure of making a rare Monday appearance back at Glass Half Full.  My triumphant return was met with 25 teams who were in true fighting form.  Good to see so many regulars still showing on Monday nights.     We started with a GGGGGREAT round 1 and then slipped into a truly inspirational round 2.   Round 3 was all about pop tarts and twinkies and I can only assume this round was written for me and my preciouses.  Preciousii? Whatever. All the precious.     When you have a trademark attorney as a regular Monday night quizzer, you end up with a round 5 that was

Never Forget: You're The Inspiration
Uncle Buck Mulligan

That's not an emotional confession into why I do why I do, that's just sound advice, as per a new Geeks Who Drink policy, "You're the Inspiration" by Chicago is now mandated to be in every submitted audio round. It was even the seventh clip again this week! So come Round 2, clip 7 next week, you know exactly what to expect! No excuses. Play like a champion today. The Old Port was a ghost town last night, and no one seemed to really know why. It was relatively nice out (it did rain eventually). Even the tourists stayed the fuck inside. I'm not complaining, but that very rarely happens. We had a good time though, as I gave an intimate performance that I think really connected me

I'm stately and plump. I make giant pancakes. I spend too much time in bowling alleys. I'm not above a good dead mother joke. I smoke cigarillos and am irresponsible. When I makes tea, I makes tea.

Last nights crowd was very polite. It was strange.
TJMcDonald

I am not sure if I entered into the twilight zone when I entered BackPocket last night. The teams were all courteous and respectful and behaved like professional adults. It was the first time this has ever happened since GWD started at BackPocket.   There were no teams whose names required me to look around the room for children before I read them out loud. I only had to repeat a few questions as opposed to the random drunks that shout "GO THROUGH THEM ALL. I WASN'T PAYING ATTENTION THE FIRST TIME. COULD YOU ALSO REPEAT THE QUESTIONS FROM THE LAST ROUND TOO?" I also did not receive any nonsensical answers that violated every sense of common decency known to man.   Honestly,

To the Noisy Girls in Back...
Tom Servo!

Thanks for laying and providing such hilarious answers, What?? No no no, we aren't laughing at you, more like in the general area. I do apologize for my tardiness, but starting a new job and trying to print from somewhere you arent used to it is very....Maddening? Furious making? It pissed me off. The sounds of the night were incredible, from shooting down inccorect answers to the excitement of thinking you had the right answer.  We had the return of Sassy Pants as well as Kaylee. Hi Kaylee.

Huh? My story? Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi...

Gawd I love that movie.

So what can I say about myself, Im an avid Transformers buff, Id say I have roughly 300+ pieces in my collection and it grows by the week.  I currently work full time for Star Trac Logistics which basically means I do the work of 3 guys while getting paid for 1 mans work.

I been Quizmaster since December of 2010ish and its only getting better, so when IM not scouring the toy shops or quizzing, or working for the Man.

So not only do i Love Transformers, I have and extensive collecting of 80's Movies as well as music.

I karaoke as much as possible and I don't want toot my own horn, but I got a set of pipes on me.

As far as my softer side, I do enjoy live theatre and try to perform as much as possible myself, whether it be in a musical or stage play, but I also try to do Improv.

Yes just like "Whose Line".

 

So let me sign off by saying this,

 I don't need any of this. I don't need this stuff, and I don't need *you*. I don't need anything. Except this. 

And that's the only thing I need is *this*. I don't need this or this. Just this ashtray... And this paddle game. - The ashtray and the paddle game and that's all I need...

And this remote control. - The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that's all I need...

And these matches. - The ashtray, and these matches, and the remote control, and the paddle ball... And this lamp. - The ashtray, this paddle game, and the remote control, and the lamp, and that's all *I* need. And that's *all* I need too.

I don't need one other thing, not one... I need this. - The paddle game and the chair, and the remote control, and the matches for sure. Well what are you looking at? What do you think I'm some kind of a jerk or something! - And this. That's all I need.
 The ashtray, the remote control, the paddle game, and this magazine, and the chair.

 And I don't need one other thing, except my dog.

I don't need my dog.

Twinkies. Just Twinkies.
Cousin Chet

Yes, it’s true. Dan “Lily” White defended himself in court after killing Harvey Milk and the Mayor of San Francisco because he claimed that eating Twinkies had created a spike in his blood sugar that made him temporarily insane. That was his fucking defense. And what’s worse is that he got away with it. He walked on the assassination of an iconic civil rights leader because Twinkie the Kid made him crazy. All I’m saying is that the 1970s were a fucked time to be alive. Speaking of fucked up Twinkie related things from the ‘70s, Twinkie the Kid! That guy. That guy freaked me the fuck out. Why would a Twinkie be a cowboy? I mean, that makes no sense

Cupcake

   Oh man, have you guys seen Gleaming the Cube? The 1980’s skateboard movie? Holy crap you guys, you gotta watch it. Also Breakin’ 2 Electric Boogaloo! Another great one! AND! Have you watched the new series Wet Hot American Summer which is the prequel to the movie Wet Hot American Summer? Oh man, it is so funny. It’s on Netflix, so check it out. Does anyone NOT have Netflix? I guess some people don’t. I don’t have real TV. And I’m not saying that in a douche-y Hipster “I’m too cool for TV” kinda thing. I love TV. But when everything switched to digital we didn’t switch our TV and so our TV doesn’t get normal

I rock climb sometimes inside (outside is where snakes live!), ride a 1980 Vespa scooter with the Pharaoh Scooter Cult, and share a house with another QM (my husband Sean) two rescued Pit Bulls and a cat named Muffin. 

I like making art, sewing stuff, playing with legos, watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and enjoying a fine cup of tea.

These Rumble Quizzers Aren’t F’ing Around
Wendy

I am just going to LOVE August and all of the Rumble in the Pub quizzers that will be looking to gobble up points all month.  And if you consider that playing can only help your numbers, even if you lose, there really isn’t any reason to not play as often as you can.  We had five very evenly matched teams at Yen Ha last night.  Two Rumble teams, two new teams to Yen Ha, and of course, the “Home Team” Bipolar Express. Budget Sex Toys nearly swept the bonus questions, finally falling to Menace to Sobriety in round 8.  Standings going into round 8 were so close, there were only 4

I'm Totally In A Band
Jakers

Seems like this blog is just becoming 'The Chronicles of Jake's Weekend' which hopefully you're all okay with. Haven't heard any complaints yet. Gonna keep on rolling, as long as I find something interesting happening every weekend. Which of course I will. And after all I can always just make shit up.   This past Saturday I had a unique pleasure. After managing to miss every event that this local band had near me, I finally made it to one of their gigs. The band is called Open G, and features four guys doing stuff on instruments, as most bands do. They're mostly blues-rock type stuff, and occasionally (as I found out) they send just two guys to a venue with guitars and

Jakers comes from the beautiful beaches of Irondequoit, NY. He is renowned as a herd of bears. A stickler for proper labeling, he never travels anywhere without some form of apparel that has his name on it.

As fits his Buffalo heritage, he enjoys chicken wings and beer, and supports the Bills as much as anyone can. An avid gamer, Jakers often ganks you out of the jungle when you have low health and ults all over your face.

He fears the strange lands outside Rochester.

He Was Number One!
Rafe

The best team names are always ones that make my stomach drop because I have to say them on a microphone. Tongue twisters, weird shit (NOT stuff like "I Wish This Mic Were a Penis" because I'll turn that shit around on you) and the like. So when I saw that a team had named themselves Schmittywarben Jagermanjetson I was actually quite pleased, because I knew this was a fun-loving team; also, because I knew that it would be Shauna, QM-in-training, who had to read out that glorious team name throughout the name. She handled it like a trooper, like a duck to water, like a noun to another noun. But kudos to you, Schmitty Warben. Even if you didn't

We'll Miss You, HitchBOT
Master Moose

Tonight I wore my Batman shirt, because last week I rescued a bat that got trapped in the building. Sadly, no one mentioned how incredibly clever I am. Everyone started off strong in the first round, with nearly perfect scores across the board. The universally missed answer was to #8, because apparently no one knows who Oprah's best friend is. One of the things that always kills me in the audio round is the responses to rap and hiphop clips. I often see random rappers paired with tracks from different eras or at least clearly different sounds. Tonight I saw '99 Problems', released in 2003 is apparently by Tupac, who died in 1996; and apparently Flo Rida, who began gaining popularity

So some heavy hitters from an old GWD venue have been making there way to Shannon Pub. The old venue had a small turnout and these teams would dominate. I always wondered how they would do in a bar with a massive turnout like Shannon Pub. And from what I see and hear they do just as well in a large competitive quiz as they do in an intimate setting. Congrats team of various names.

Surely Meat Sweats didn't follow me around today, right? I finished my steak around 7 p.m. and then rushed off to host the quiz, but couldn't find a close parking spot thanks to the construction on 12th St. I parked down by the Convention Center, and I was regretting that top sirloin as I hoofed it to the Bulldog in the July heat.  Anyway, they finished in first place with 67 points, besting runners-up Tuesdays w/ Alex by four points. Meanwhile, Marco had their call-and-response game down all night, as Celta remains poised to repeat their gold medal from last week.

The Douche Canoes
Paddycake

I heartily apologize for the table of guys who were intent on ruining the quiz for everyone. My friends and I have labeled them The Douche Canoes. That was their unofficial team name since they were just being loud-mouthed dickheads, and were extremely rude to everyone who tried to ask them to keep it down, including me.   So, I propose the next time this happens, everyone change their team name to something more subtle so when I make the team name announcements, and score standings... maybe just MAYBE they'll get the point that they are in fact the minority, and you are the majority.   Here's a suggestion...

[ ...more... ]

I started quizzing about 2 years ago when my best friend got me involved on his quiz team. Since then I have rarely missed a quiz at our regular venue on Monday Nights.

Over the years people have come and gone, at one point we had a regular team of 5, that kicked a lot of ass and took a lot of names. We even competed in Geek Bowl 2013 under the name How I Met Your Mothra.

People have come and gone since then, but at the very least, 3 of our team remained quizzing every Monday. After Geek Bowl, the bestie got hired as a quizmaster, so I decided to do the same the next time auditions rolled around.

So here I am, Quizmaster Paddycake. I started at Molly Malone's in Spring, and now I shall be taking over Cedar Creek on Monday nights as well. Big shoes to fill there, but I feel confident it'll all be awesome!

See you at quiz!
