Bye Bye Lil' Sebastian
Darth Gargamel

Last night was filled with tears and laughter. Across the nation bars groaned as an entire round was dedicated to Broadway show tunes. Not at Shamrock though. At Shamrock they freaking loved that stuff. Amazing. The quiz. A good chuckle was had by all when I announced that the word 'dickpic' had not been legitimized by Scrabble. No one knows the name to Drake songs. I could have played 5000 candles in the wind the whole night. Paula Dean on money? As I mentioned the Broadway round. Holy crap. There was dancing between the tables. Oklahoma. No one thinks about Oklahoma. Sucks if you live there.  A close night the whole night,

Couple things about me: I'm a man, and that means I do man things. I shit with the door open, I go on riverboat gambling trips, I make my own jerky. And now all of that is wrecked!

I lied. Not one of those things is true, but if it impresses you lets stick with it. I'll tell you something that is true though. Clint Eastwood once gave me the finger. True story.

Other things......I enjoy the color blue. I'm right handed, so I've got that going for me. I cannot say the alphabet backwards, even when I'm drunk. Which is a lot. Also I've never been to Oregon. My dreams are but three: 1. To appear on Jeopardy. Cause if we aren't here for trivia, what's it all for? 2. To appear on Drunk History. I got my degree and history, and thus far it's proved useless. Appearing on that show would make it all worth while. 3. To have a sandwich named after me. Who needs a kid sharing your name when you can have a sandwich.

 

Also I enjoy Pinky and the Brain cartoons, and if you talk shit about them or request that I play Kanye music during the game, your team starts with negative 50 points. Your call man.

Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?!?!
The Gould Standard

Forget it, he's rolling.   Quiz tonight was delayed just a few minutes due to the United States Women's National Team thumping Germany in the semi-finals of the women's World Cup, 2-nil.   (see that, I used a soccer term!)   And finally, the US has its revenge for Pearl Harbor.   Onto the actual quiz stuff!   I've hosted at Ringo's for 10 months now, and tonight was the first time a co-worker (at like, my real job) has come to play.   Ok, I'll admit there's a technicality to all of this, I've only been full-time employed for 5 of the 10 months, but I digress.   Ben

What a great night at The Old Pequliar. 11 teams competed for the top geek prize. It all got interesting when we had a tie for first place. It got more interesting when we had a tie after a sudden death round. It got less interesting when one of those teams decidedly won. Dot 32 took home our grand prize of a $15 gift certificate, leaving There’s Always Next Week to take home 2nd place (a $10 gift card). Blood Sweat and Cheers clearly won our Thank Go I’m Not Last Award™ of a pitcher of PBR.   I had a blast. I think you all did too. Join us next week, and in the mean time, check out

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

It was nice to get back to A Bar Named Sue tonight. I don't like when I have to go on vacation to exotic adventures with lots of beautiful women and endless delicacies. But sometimes it's required and something has to give. Special thank you to Sarah for taking over again and always getting my back! I don't quite understand why she's hatin' on Ja Rule, but not everybody can appreciate the hot jamz.   Speaking of that, as usual, you can hear tonight's music on Spotify: DJSN's Grab Yo'self a Towel Mix   We had yet another tie-breaker quiz and it all

What up Oskar's! It was great hosting for you all again. I feel like I come back here every 6 months or so to do our dance. So this time I really liked the quiz that we had. I mean being a guy who just turned 30 and loves him some vaping, mary J, swimming and Pokemon. I think I pulled the superfecta.Speaking of Mary J, it's legal in Oregon now! WOOP WOOP. I should be down there celebrating but hey, life is life. I'll be down there soon enough and then we'll blaze new trails and such. So after round one I wonder, just how many letters are in the Scrabble Dictionary? I mean adding 6,500 seems like a big deal and I know they add more and more each year but dang,

Missing Family
JeffreyMetius

The weekend before I met my now wife my parents packed up everything and moved back to the DC metro area where we are originally from.  We had lived in Colorado for more than 17 years at this point and they decided they wanted to go back to eventually retire.  I told them I was staying here, and then it just so happened I met my now wife and she made for a very good reason to stay in Colorado.  Since they moved I have seen them 5 times in the three years they’ve been gone.  I can’t really say that I’ve been home sick since I have never lived in the house my parents live in now.  But I miss being able to just go over and have a beer with my dad and

Hello all!

I'm Jeff...the really big guy. In my time when I'm not hosting quiz I enjoy playing hockey and taking my jeep up into the mountains to get away from everyone.  While I'm up there I ponder the many parts of life...like why do hotdogs come in packs of 10 and the buns come in packs of 8...and yes you can explode and yes you can implode...but can you just plode?

Just think about it.

Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out this wet as fuck evening. I saw wet as fuck not to curse, but because when one fucks, things get extraordinarily wet. Assuming you are doing things properly anyway. I suppose also assuming you have not gone through menopause. Interesting thing I read the other day. Among the field of potential new male birth control pills and devices is a pill that actually prevents ejaculation. The dude totally cums, but he doesn’t splooge. To that I say, “A-FUCKING-MEN!” Seriously, the worst part about sex isn’t the abortion four weeks later, it’s the constant dry cleaning. I have Anthropologie sheets. I’m afraid to French kiss in bed.

Howdy! My name is Katie, I enjoy long walks on the beach, pasta, and Christmas lights in July. The first things people notice about me are my subtle sense of fashion and my typically reserved demeanor. I have a penchant for video games, with a fixation on SNES games of yore. I'm only 5'2", but I make up for it by wearing 4-6 inch platforms. I'm a HUGE Twilight fanboy-girl.

We had three teams, but everyone was lively and in good spirits!

Favorite round title tonight: Going For the Acapulco Gold, a round on Michael Phelps and Marijuana.  Because he smokes it, and wins gold medals.   Favorite wrong answer of the night, in our round on words recent added to the Scrabble dictionary: dickpic.  I really enjoy imagining a super serious Scrabble championship streaming on twitch, where the champ snaps off a come-from-behind win with 'dickpic.' Congratulations to Battletoads, for whom victory is anything but Rare.  Great name and great finish from Antonin Scalia: Power Bottom.  I really do enjoy the things I get to say over a loudspeaker,

Bon Joyage
Gar

  Oh Captain, my Captain… or something. It is with a little sadness and much rejoicing we say goodbye to the de facto team leader of the de facto team Juggernauts. Joe(gernaut), I wish you well in Miami. Don’t go all Dexter on us. Or if you do, make haste to the great Northwest. How will your team fare in your wake? Only time will tell.   Hell of a quiz. Meat Easels nearly had the upset victory of Goodbye Huggernauts, but Joe and Co. prevailed one last time.   Oh my god, I am hopelessly addicted to the popular mobile game Tap Titans.

Gar is an idiot man-child who likes cats, video games and beer.

Despite the occasional run-on sentence, Gar is a dedicated Grammar Nazi. He's also a giant stickler for rules, mainly because his anxious disposition precludes from him convincingly pulling off any untoward behavior of his own.

A social recluse by day, the prospect of booze-fueled battles of wits compels him to leave the warm, comforting glow of his computer monitor each night for pub quiz.

Did we mention the cats?

Go USA!
Swagu

Last night was the night that the US Women’s Soccer team, a team that everyone predicted to lose in the first round, advanced to the finals! Good thing our quiz kicked all the WC spectators into the other room.   Normally I would blog about how the quiz went, but I promised a member of Jeff Goldblum that I was going to write about dicks. Now, if they got in 8th, I probably would’ve ignored the request. But since they got 2nd, I have to respect that shit.   I used to read my sister’s erotic novels when I was younger.

Here's one thing I never want to do again: go two weeks without doing a quiz at Moontower. First off, I started going through withdrawal. I couldn't get my mind off of it, I was having trouble sleeping and I kept sweating a lot (even more than usual.) Then I actually get to quiz last night and I'm really off of my game. Being a QM is not like riding a bike. You get rusty and if you don't use it, you lose it. Fortunately, there were I got a lot of outside assistance that helped me get back in my groove.

Hey yo. I'm RJ. The Urge. R-Jizzle. I'm a transplanted Austinite, originally hailing from Clarksville, Tennessee. I was educated at a school where it's perfectly acceptable to show your Peay-ness. I'm your typical sports fan. (Soccer being my sport of choice.) Cereal is my favorite food, simply because you can eat it at any time of the day. And it makes milk totally flavorful and drinkable.

I'm a total nut for pop culture...movies, music, books. I try to take as much of it in as possible, regardless of how it eats into my daily responsibilities. I'm still a video game nerd, although there isn't a lot of time for it nowadays. I'm a shameless fan of reality television and I once made it through the first two cuts of casting for The Real World. But, alas, I wasn't emotionally challenged enough to make it all of the way.

Professional wrestling is still real to me.

Well didn’t we have quite the ball this week with a record 12 teams at this week’s GWD quiz at Club Cafe? Some came out of it more joyous than others, but this was overall a pack of quizzees in party mode. We’re talking split-second decisions on several of the bonuses, different teams finding advantages in different rounds, and of course the inevitable surprise ending to boot.   I just downloaded Words With Friends a few days ago, so I found it oddly appropriate that we started tonight’s quiz on some of the new Scrabble-legal words added to the lexicon this past May.

I love 'em. I save all your answer sheets. I hope you don't mind. I like to read what my quizzers write on them. One of the teams, every week, without fail manages to draw a wide variety of male genitalia. Like, a serious selection of schlongs. Another team has a whole matrix of information to deliberate on answers. It's fascinating to see how peoples' brains work, all scribbled on paper.  Keep 'em coming! ------------------------------------- Interesting Notes from the Quiz!

That's all she wrote folks. Onto the the finals with those beautiful talented ladies. I have to say, it I couldn't have timed my entrance into the bar any better. I like to personally believe that my presence at the bar was what spurred both that first, and that second goal that put 'er away. It was a great game, and there was an outstanding bit of quiz that happened after it, if you were one of the lucky participants. I first off would like throw a apology out there for the sort of "iffyness" of the microphone and speaker quality this past week. Seemed a bit worse than usual, and I sort of think that it's from the rough way I may have treated the mic in the past. I guess the karma train

Hello Quizzers! The name is Jay and this Quizmaster's story begins in Skokie, Illinois, but since very few people from the Boston-area know where that is, let's just call it Chicago; I mean, its a direct subway line and only two towns over....FINE, I grew up in a suburb, are you happy now? Graduated from Babson College in 2013 with a Bachelor's in Business Administration and a Master's in Accounting. I'm a nerd by day, and a geek by night. Decided to stay out here and give this East-coast thing a shot. I like to follow the Vin Diesel school of Geekdom. If you want to compare lifts and gym routines, I'll be there; but if you want to geek out, and I mean if you REALLY want to geek out, I'm your go-to-guy. -Music? 5x year attendee of Lollapalooza Music Festival, 3x Karaoke champion in 2008. I will stand firmly behind the idea that RHCP needs John Frusciante, Progressive R&B is the music of the future, and that Drum & Bass is the best EDM sub-genre. -Video Games? Been playing since Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the NES, and haven't stopped since. FPS, MOBA, JRPG, MMORPG, whatever the hell Katamari Damacy was (other than completely awesome), I got you covered. -TV? I may or may not still reference lines from Archer, South Park, Futurama, and the Simpsons on a daily basis. -Movies? Been watching them constantly since my dad made me watch Bloodsport with Jean-Claude Van Damme at age 5. Favorite View Askew (Kevin Smith) comedies are Clerks and Chasing Amy, least favorites are Mallrats and Clerks II; I refuse to count Jersey Girl as an actual member of that universe. -General Geekiness? I had a 3-month stint as Dungeon Master for my D&D group, I hosted a LAN-party about a week before writing this bio, and I make sure to check IGN, Kotaku, and Reddit on a daily (closer to hourly)-basis With all that said, I hope to see you on the quizzing battlegrounds soon.
