Singing way off key in a full bierhaus.
Weapon Z

What’s up Blogosphere! Krazy Karl’s Pizza lived up to its name tonight. We had a packed house with 17 teams and 6 of them were Rumble Teams! This is the final week of the Rumble and teams are going all out to get qualified for the regional event next week. Our first highlight (and sometimes lowlight) of the evening came courtesy of Syarhcaz Anigav who sang along with nearly every song on my playlist. Sadly, not everyone can sing the high parts in The Darkness’ “I Believe in a Thing Called Love”. Regardless it really made the night more entertaining. Thanks gang! It was nice to see some high scores on our audio round this evening.

Last night I gave away a Geeks Who Drink hat! And the fact that I decided to wear it for the quiz didn't deter you guys from trying to win it. Awesome.   But anyway, I had you guys write haikus upon the subject of hats. Here are some of the entries:   Hats are very comfyKeep your head from wet or redComes in many colors too   (accurate, but incorrect syllable structure...)   I love hats a lotBut your mom stole my last hatI need a new one   (classy, with a "your mom" twist. wonderful)   Hats keep me so warmWhen I ski or in a stormHats

Linda quizzed for a while, but her brand of oddly specific knowledge (Rockies baseball, insipid romantic comedies, and all things snark) was less conducive to quizzing and more conducive to quizmaster-ing.

Now here she is. And here you are. We're all here together. How delightful.

The Opposite of Bob Dylan
TanookiSuitandTie

Wowza! Another packed house tonight! I probably have UNM being back in biz to thank for this. While I've become accustomed to the dim, somber quiz nights of yore, tonight threw me for a loop as the place was, as the kids say these days: bumpin'. Nine teams, almost fills the entire main room. If this quiz night gets much busier, we're gonna have to have people sitting on pool tables in the next room over. I also tried a new setup tonight, moving my table forward from the corner of the room (I felt a little like a dejected child beforehand) and placing the speaker behind me, where others couldn't potentially trip over the tripod legs. Rather fond of the new arrangement, I just need to resolve

A megalomaniac with a heart of gold, I've been a quizzer for 2 and half years but I've yet to come out to my parents about it. Now that I've achieved the lofty title of Quizmaster, I'm ready to bust some names and take some heads. Interests include video games, word play and terrible impressions of Gollum and Alan Rickman. For great justice!

Lost in Misinterpretations  
Roy G. Biv

  Tonight’s quiz was presented in ancient Scandinavian. Hurdy gurdy…hurdy gurd. We had a whole round on Scandinavian countries, and the only result is that we know that we know nothing of Scandinavian countries. Except for some guy from the Hitch Hikers Guide that I’m not even going to attempt to spell, yet alone pronounce, again. Apparently, he designed the Norwegian Coastline. #insidejoke Thespians and A Lesbian and Budget Sex Toys knew that one easily.

GMAT & LSAT trainer extraordinaire

Another pub quiz at Chow, another justification of my existence. Whenever returning teams, like the super-awesome-fantastic Girls, the lovely & charming Bees, and the always-there-to-play Of Course They Spell Erika With a K, come back to Chow, it makes me feel like a real, live, person. In the end, Straight Out of Chowton made a great showing, not only winning first place, but winning two bonus questions. Unfortunately, they hid from me when it was time to take pictures, but I will get you guys next time! I was especially impressed by everyone's Round 6 performance about the VMAs, because I would have scored a big fat ZERO, myself. See you guys next week!

Hey there, quizzers! 34 teams! What a great turnout for Stephanie's first night! Speaking of Stephanie, she's our official-longterm-for-keeps Scorekeeper! Thanks for being so nice to her on her first night! I know you're excited to come to our quiz with Two Sexy Ladies from now on ;-). Let's see, what else happened tonight? We had a Round 1 that was confusing for some of you until we got to the Hannibal/elephant question. That was when you finally realized that the answer to the previous question filled in the blank for the new question. Repeats were probably more important for you than normal here.Round 2 was songs about California, while Round 3 was a

Best Quiz Ever: 1 Year Anniversary Edition
DJ ROB ROB

Tonight's quiz at The Ute and Yeti was indescribable. Without a doubt the biggest and best quiz I have yet to host. Tonight was my ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY as a Quizmaster (technically it was Thursday, but there was no other occasion to celebrate) and all the stops were pulled out. The entire venue was completely packed out; there were 14 BIG teams playing tonight, which made the celebration all the better. I also gave away a smorgasbord of prizes ranging from Geeks Who Drink pint glasses to DVDs from my personal collection that were itching to be given away. Ute and Yeti was also quite kind enough to give away a gift certificate prize for 3rd place for the first time

It was their first of many nights of Quiz. Bangarang! San Diego Means a Whale’s Vagina, took second place with 55 points. First for best team name… and you had a serious cartoon nerd with you this week. What luck. In third came Moist Sex on Fire… That’s a name that usually comes first… get it!

Cliff Banger's Campaign for Governor of New York

Quiz time is fun time. It beats the blues, for sure. The greens have a tendency to show up, though. And the reds are always invading small countries. No sign of any oranges, however. I think I’ll have one for breakfast tomorrow.   It was an intimate quiz tonight, peppered with requests for Toto songs and wonky rounds that involved careful following by the teams. The fact that more than half the teams still got over 60 points attests to your awesome listening abilities. Or my ability to communicate. Either way, well done quizzers!   And now for a little sentence inspired by tonight’s quiz…   Michael Jackson walked

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.

 

By day, I go to class and do homework, by night I make subs and quiz people with random questions. I'm a real superhero. Oh yeah, and I absolutely adore all aspects of alliteration. Too bad that never really comes up in the quizzes. Maybe I'll go suggest a round...

Fred Durst Dared to Dream

Now that the weather is getting less molten, we had a quieter crowd tonight and most of the patrons were playing the quiz. It's a nice change from the summer inside voices bustle. And there was some stiff competition. Current events in Round One weren't much of a challenge for the serious competitors. But a curveball Round Two featuring shitty covers of much better songs, threw a few teams for a loop. Luckily, Round Three was Sooner or Later and, thus, worth a precious 16 points. And this Round Three skewed pretty young, asking for cartoons based on less and less obscure characters. At the first score break,

Sheldon's Sleeping

Sometimes real life comes up. Yes, I know this blog post is a couple of days late. Sorry. It was a great Wednesday at The Canterbury Ale House. We had 15 teams competing. A drop from our 23 last week, but still a good showing.   And the reason we usually write our blogs so soon after the quiz… I’ve forgotten most of the important details from the quiz. I do recall that we had to settle a first place tie, and that Sheldon’s Sleeping was ultimately our winner after some math confusion.   I had a great time, and I can’t wait to do it again next Wednesday.   Quizmaster Jason Out

He hasn't quite mastered talking about himself in the third person, as evidenced by his last sentence.

After hearing round 3, I've decided to start my own reality show.  It's all about studying for quiz.  In a house.  Locked away from the outside world except for a stack of Madonna and Rhianna albums so you can learn the difference.  We'll cover all the subjects.  Study all the things.  Vote people out of the house based on who has the worst scores.  And at the end, everyone makes me dinner and you get no prize.  I would watch that.  Wouldn't you?   Every time OTPHJ jokers the best round, they get pie.  No pie for them- they had the top music round score and squandered the opportunity, opting instead

The Best-Laid Schemes o' Mice an' Men . . .
Lady Busty

Two weeks ago, I figured I should just leave everything quiz-related (minus the laptop) in my car so that I could get to Aloft early enough to get everything set up and ready for Mitchicus. Yes, I'll keep the pencils, the answer sheets, the sound equipment (just in case), and my car key. You read that right. On the day of the quiz, I left my car key in the car and did not discover it until I was trying to leave from work. I don't have an extra key. The car didn't come with one. I called AAA. I called my husband. I messaged Mitchicus. And I waited. And waited with my car for 45 minutes in the rain with

I was born in Scotland to American parents. I spent most of my youth moving around the world as a Navy brat (think: every two years), spending the most time in the UK. Don't let this Midwestern accent fool you. I'm a Brit. Try as I might, I will pronounce and spell things the British way (it is English, after all) and can have a dry, naughty sense of humour. I love puns to no end. Though I am homesick for the Isles, I have adopted Tucson as my home. I've done enough moving for anyone.

What else? I am a Gemini, so there is (at least) one other side to me and I am incredibly indecisive. If there is ever a decision to be made, please, make it for me. I'll be forever in your debt.

I am a Lady, in that I own land in Scotland: two parcels .

I am honest, though I would never say, to any fault. Try me. I'll answer pretty much any question.

I have two degress in Theatre and run the library at a middle school.

I live with my husband, our ten rabbits, nineteen chickens, nine ducks, five turkeys, six quail, one goose, four cats, two dogs, three mice, two goats, and two turtles.

Not literally, of course. That happened months ago. It was my first quiz! I sucked. But you know who sucked worse? My friends! MereBear, RaeLow, HerrerBear, and Captain Kajander were nice enough to come out and support me. It really puts into perspective why I put up with their bullshit. They played as "Team in First Place". They finished in fifth place. In other news, Hard Chargers bounced then came back, I played a lot of Kanye, and believe it or not France is not in the Southern Hemisphere. Winners of the night were a team of 2edgy4me individuals named "Osman's Cherry" to commemorate my deflowering. I'm sure they are very emotionally-balanced people that don't

Relatively uneventful quiz this week, with no drug-addled street people trying to will a karaoke hot take of “Man in the Box” into existence, nor any misguided know-it-alls babbling about how Russia isn’t part of Asia or some shit.
