Quizmaster Zero: Scoobses Edition

So lately I've been going back through my DVR, trying to get rid of shit that I won't watch again.  Granted, I still have plenty of space on the thing, but I get paranoid when I get to anything around 30% free space.  I noticed that I still have the first ten episodes of Lip Sync Battle on there, so of course instead of writing this blog, I went through it and watched the vaguely mediocre progress to the amazing.  For someone who has it on his show all the time, Jimmy Fallon was a bit disappointing on the show…but then again just about everyone looks vaguely lame next to Dwayne Johnson (The

Keeping It 100 at the TRAILHEAD!
The Radness That Is Brecken

If you've ever listened or read anything I've ever had to say (which I know you haven't, so what-the-fuck ever), you'd know that I often lament that my only friend is my awesome brother, Eric. I have no other friends. Hell, I even blogged about it last week: no friends, don't want 'em, pretending to be friends and fronting as a "nice person" instead of just telling you the STFU and fuck.  Not having friends is not (usually) a problem, nor is it (ever) a cry for help. (Seriously, if I was "crying for help," it wouldn't be "Hey! I gots no friends, yo!" It would be more, "Hey! I'm 'bout to drink this bottle of Drain-o, yo!" You'd know the difference.)

It's hard to be humble when you're so fucking smart...

The Radness That Is Brecken has been a quiz mistress since Aug. 2007. Yeah, that's a long fucking time. It is said the only way to stop her is to kill her, and, really, good luck with that.

When not belittleing you on a mic, Brecken is busy hating people (see her neck tattoo), and really not caring about much... except GWD, Trailhead, her pets, and beer.

She lives her life like the Arthur Balfour quote: "Nothing matters very much, and few things matter at all."

Pet peeves include people that yawn without covering their mouth, those that say "WHAT?" instead of "Pardon?", and people that accuse Miss B of being a bad pet owner. That shit will get you punched in the mouth. Seriously. Ask anybody.

Check out her other writing misadventures at Writing As I Write. You know you want to, so stop being all douchy about it.

And please remember: much like the Wu-Tang Clan, Brecken ain't nothing to fuck with.

A New Quizmaster Approaches.... Hi Everyone! I'm Dan and I'm the new Quizmaster over at Sona Thirteen in Morristown, New Jersey. Tonight's quiz was particularly different, with a round consisting of naming Ben and Jerry's flavors that stumped everybody. The usual complaints about the speakers were expected, but never have I heard a bar fall completely silent in attempt to pay attention to the audio questions. When I was training with Marshall a team known as Release the Kraken was on their second win in a row. As of today they have won FOUR TIMES in a row, by 10+ points. I say this now Release the Kraken,

Stop Flaunting Your Happiness

Hey! I was told that the whole sports thing was done! That one basketball thingy got finished, lots of people yelled, some happily, some not so happily. I was busy in the corner on my laptop min/maxing my halfling barbarian, but it sounded exciting. So after that we were supposed to be done! But not so! There's another thing with another kind of ball. Ahhhh! It's okay though, because it was like the USA against other people and, truth be told, America is pretty cool. I learned the biggest bummer today! Elena, one of our long time quizzers, is moving to Ohio! That sucks!

Happy Canada Day!
Cap'n Brendan

Canada Day is totally a thing, and apparently it’s a Day. According to Wikipedia, Fete du Canada (which of course they call it) celebrates the day in 1867 when New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and the United Province of Canada merged into Canada. Rather than offer my own inferior words about how ludicrous Canada is, I’m just going to turn you over to some Barney Stinson quotes. [How do you know the Canadian citizenship test is easy?] It’s CANADA! Question one: Do you want to be Canadian? Question two: …Really? Attention Canada: I am Barney from America, and I am here to fix your backward ass country. Number one, get real money. Don't know what board

Hey 400 Rabbits!     So, I’m writing this blog reeeal slowly because I sprained my wrist. I’m just really clumsy and this brace is making typing hard. The struggle is real.    Anyway, we had a quiz and it was great! Round One referenced the quality programming on VH1. I watched a lot of those shows and I shamefully loved them. In case anyone forgot, there was a show where Mystery the Pick Up Artist trained guys that had no game. It was terrible.    Round Two was collaborations. Lady Marmalade was featured. I was super stoked about it, but

Hey Pinthouse gang! What a fun night! Team USA won another footy ball match right before starting our heated game so everyone was in good spirits to begin with. Another awesome turn out and collection of peoples. In front of me sat one of my favorite new players. It was a duo, guy and girl, and he was deaf and she was interpreting for him. Have you guys ever had someone doing sign language interpretation of what you were saying directly in front of you? It’s pretty awesome. I made her sign poop NUMEROUS times. But y’know, not without reason, we had a round themed on it. Of course… I probably would’ve said it a bunch anyways. An added benefit was they were never yelling

How To Make Friends and Influence Others to Quiz
Rachelbot

Met a new friend tonight at The Three Lions Pub! His name is Jeff and when I asked if he was familiar with quiz, he informed me, “Oh yeah, I quiz roughly two nights a week.” We had a great time chatting about other venues and quiz masters, but what stuck out above all was his inclusion of “You know, Geeks Who Drink changed my life.” He went on to say that when he moved his to Seattle with his wife, it was hard at first to establish new friend groups and connect socially. But at Geeks Who Drink quizzes, it didn’t take long for them to pit themselves against another team—in the friendliest of ways—and see who could take the gold. Since then, they’ve

With the Jupiter/Venus conjunction still happening, right after quiz, I dashed across the parking lot to setup my telescope at Marina Park.  We looked at Venus/Jupiter and then I pointed my telescope at Saturn for shits and giggle.  I am a HUGE astronomy geek and so for tonight’s blog, Ill fill you in on some shit you might not know about the planets of the solar system. Mercury: He is a small guy but once upon a time Mercury was over twice as massive.  Something cataclysmic happened and what we see today is actually the dead solid core of what was once a larger planet. Venus: A day on Venus is longer than a year on Venus.  She also spins backwards

It Sorta Sticks Out
J.A.M.E.S.

I am rapidly approaching four years as a QuizMaster for Geeks Who Drink. So, it probably goes without saying that I am used to dick jokes on the answer sheets. However, never have I seen so many in a single night. Seriously, it was wangs and willies, ding-dongs and dicks all night.   For instance in Round 1 Question 6: “Finish the title of the upcoming not-prequel that's got the internet in a tizzy: "Harry Potter and the Cursed BLANK". Teams Unexpected Wang (see, it even started with the team names) and Good Try both went with “Penis”. Meanwhile, Quiz In My Pants answered “Dildo”

I Mustache You a Question. I Cannot Shave It for Later
TJGi

Thanks to everyone for being a good sport and playing along with Fake Mustache Night. As I explained to several people, I decided to do Fake Mustache Night when I met up with my old pal Damon this week. Damon told me he'd lucked into several hundred zillion goddam fake mustaches, he said half of his house is full of boxes of mustaches. I'm like, "Hey, Fake Mustache Night!" and the rest is history. Some of your are probably glad it's history. Some of you probably weren't there because it was Fake Mustache Night. That's OK. I know not everyone has a bizarre, immature sense of humor like I do. Not everyone can be as awesome as me. But I was so glad to see that at least

Hey, Geeks!

My name is TJ. I live in Tempe with two roommates and 6 1/2 pets. My interests include music (Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age, no country), fantasy football (I hate the off season. Cards and Ravens fan), beer (Fat Tire), board and card games (too many to mention!), and food (Thai and Peruvian among my favs).

I'll tell the name story here, so when people ask me at the venue I can point them to this page. Smart thinking, G! My name is TJ d Gi. I was born with just two letters for a first name, as rather than name me Trojan Joe after my grandfather, my parents decided to let me "pick" my name when I was of age. What they didn't expect is that I changed my last name to Gi (pronounced "G" like true gangsta). I have recently begun using the middle name d'Oubleyou, but have not yet made that legal. When I do my name will be TJ d'Oubleyou Gi. Which is 2/3 invented but 3/2 as cool as any other name you know.

I got involved with GwD after the bar where I was running karaoke decided cheap was better than good, and work a day job where I mindlessly press buttons on a computer all day. I love running the Pub Quiz because it's my only social interaction in most weeks, and it's so much fun meeting all of you and having a few hours of fun with you every week.

Thanks for viewing my page, and I look forward to seeing you at Quiz!

TJ

We All Politely Shout for Canadian Ice Cream!
SirYon

Canada and the United States joined forces this evening. Our birthday isn’t until Saturday, but we still had some quaint observance. To be brutally honest, Canada was more represented, though. We even had William Shatner “sing” O Canada to us, courtesy of the National Film Board of Canada. The music was slightly patriotic, even. Though there were a couple faux pas on the quizmaster’s part. Björk’s “Declare Independence” didn’t play during Round 6. And South Park’s “Blame Canada” was conspicuously absent. My bad.   But moving on to the night’s triumphs…   The visual

On a sweltering day in the final months of the Reagan administration, a human baby was discovered by a leopard in the middle of a cornfield somewhere outside Chicago. This baby grew up into a gangly assemblage of brain waves, taught itself to read questions into a microphone and type on a keyboard, and found a job.
