It Was The Worst of Times, It Was The Worstiest of Times
VoldeMartini

My day did not go well. Due to the storms last night, my car was not only apparently the only safe haven for all the ducks in my apartment complex, it was also the final resting place for all the sticks that broke off of the trees. And I even moved my car due to the winds. I checked my insurance policy first because I wanted to be lazy and just leave it, but I didn’t see anything about “An Act Of God” so I figured I’d better be safe than sorry. Got in an argument with my kiddo’s daycare teacher, because of reasons. Was pissed about that on the way into the office. Then, on the way into work, apparently my decision to go 40 MPH in a 35 was

A Real Nail-Biter!
Thomas J. Brown

I love it when the quiz ends with suspense. Although CDA Slackers won with a 4 point lead, the entire night they played second fiddle to Brittany’s Mom Has Got It Goin’ On!, who established an early lead. They actually managed to hold that lead all the way through Round 7, but CDA Slackers wisely saved their joker for Round 8, which pushed them firmly into first place. There was also a tie for third place between The Einsteins and The Magic Buttons, although if CDA Slackers had bombed Round 8, those two teams would have tied for second place. That would have been exciting. The

The Prog Rock Quiz That Should Have Had More Prog Rock
DJ ROB ROB

Another great night of quiz in the books at Cleats Bar and Grill East, Tuesday nights at 8 PM! We had 6 teams playing for the glory and prizes this week. We played through 8 rounds of quiz featuring rounds about Asia (where I played Heat of the Moment by Asia), and a round about foreigners from frigid climates (where I played Cold As Ice by Foreigner). Can that be qualified as a Prog Rock quiz takeover? Unlikely, but it was still fun to have both those songs conveniently fit the theme. I only wish the other two themed rounds (Hillary Clinton vs. Tracy Flick and 4-letter words) could have also been fitting for prog rock artists. If you can think of any political songs

President Clinton Demands A Moat!
Brittany "Michael Bay" St. Julien

I'd like to address one of the most pressing matters from this week's quiz at McMenamins Mission Theater. Most of my Mission Geeks were completely clueless about the Castle Clinton Monument in New York. Well, wonder no more, friends! The Castle Clinton National Monument, one of the four most visited national parks/monuments in the country, is a little ol' park in NYC featuring a brick replica of Clinton Castle, the new home President Clinton will build for herself atop the property of the former White House. You're probably wondering how the architects of the early 1800s foretold President Clinton's reign.

Friends call me Michael Bay because I love action and make a lot of sound effects with my mouth.

Well, nobody calls me that, really. But they should for the above reasons.

If I had to rank my top 3 books, it'd look something like:

1)Plato- The Republic
2)Heinlein- Stranger in a Strange Land
3)Silverman- The Bedwetter

Or something.

Hey Billie Jeans! Thanks for coming out tonight! I love all my regulars! It’s a joy every week to see your shiny faces. Let’s get to it. I’d like to take a moment to thank the quiz writers for giving me an opportunity to play Gangam Style! I love that song and I actually kind of love PSY as well. I mean, all K-Pop is kind of the best. It’s a lot grimier than J-Pop with more hip-hop influences. And omg the videos!! Their clothes give me so much life. Please just watch any video by 2NE1. I’m telling you, it will change your life. BEWARE! Daddy by PSY will absolutely get in your head forever.

Where the Heck Were Rick and Jak?

“We like quiz and we don’t care who knows! We like quiz from our heads to our toes!” That was the chant I was definitely, 100% not hallucinating you guys sang at me the whole night. There were sixteen teams last night! SIXTEEN! That’s, like, if there were eight teams but actually twice as much. Or, like, if there were, say, eleven teams and then five more teams showed up. You dig? It was a lot, and a wonderful turn-out for the first night of quiz at a new venue. A big thank you to Rikenjaks for bringing such an awesome piece of modern culture to our fair city.

Finding That One Karaoke Go To
Extra Terresticle

When we go out to sing karaoke, many of us have one or two go-tos that we sing every time. For some, Journey is the choice, while others have their 90s picks like Third Eye Blind or Blink 182. Then there are the random-but-that’s-okay-because-we-like-you songs like Rainbow Connection or Tequila. And for the more bold, there’s Sandstorm where you dance around yelling dun-dun-dun again and again and again. For me, finding my karaoke go to took a lot of trial and error. And I mean a lot of trial and error. I attempted Don’t Stop Believing, but hitting those high notes was damn near impossible. I tried R.E.M.’s It’s the End of the World, but that just

That Sounds Dirty

I swear, every time we do one of these “sounds like it's dirty” rounds, this blog practically writes itself. I did have to clarify that BDSM means you like it rough, not that you kill your partner. Anyways, here's a list of movies my venue thought sounded like BDSM titles (some of these sounds better as safe words): Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon Full Metal Jacket The Fast and the Furious

Flash Gordon Star Wars featuring Han the Merciless!

 All right, so some of you are too young to remember Flash Gordon and his arch-enemy, Ming the Merciless.  Fortunately, you were all young enough to put aside your love for the DNC to come out to quiz last night.  Sixteen teams last night.  Sixteen!  That's two to the fourth for all you math nerds.  Anyway, it was a lot.  Also, on a complete side note:  Go see the AbFab movie.  And if you don't know what AbFab is, google that shit and watch it.  If you don't know what google is, bing that?  No, that doesn't work at all. Anyway, on to the quiz.  We had one.  I know because it was Tuesday, and that means

In which we say Auf Vedersain Sigi.
Ozzimo or The Captain

Did I ever tell you the story of how I learned not to worry about hecklers? It's a good one. I'll give you the short version. One day another Tacoma quiz host (we'll call him... Shmalland Shmume) He was hosting one night in one of Tacoma's less well loved bars when he came into an altercation with a over-served customer. Not a quizzer mind you. They spoke in loud tones for a few moments and then the not-quizzer threw a pint glass at his face. Luckily for Mr Shmume, the inebriated man's aim was so poor that from a distance of 10 feet, he missed his face and hit the wall behind. Mr Shmume didn't flinch (mostly from his own delayed reaction) and used the power of the mic to extricate

I was born a poor black child... hold on... nope thinking of someone else. I was born in Suburbia. Like, smack dab. My hometown of Puyallup is famous for 3 things.

1.  1. Before Prohibition it was the hops capital of the world. (Thanks a lot Puritans!! Grrrr) But this just goes to show that when they say there's something in the water around here, they're talking about beer.

2.  2. The guy who played the Dad on "A Christmas Story" graduated from Puyallup High School and is, as far as I know, the most famous person to grow up here.

3.  3. It is the current home of your humble Quizmaster, Ozzimo.

Anyway, here's the quick and dirty. I'm class of 01 from Puyallup High School; I left high school thinking I wanted to teach Choir as that was basically the extent of my knowledge. When I got to college I found out how little these people make and how hard they had to train to do it. I immediately changed my major to Political Science and have never looked back. This is one of the main reasons not to argue with me when you think I’m wrong. I'm trained to win a fight, even if the other person is 6 kinds of right.

I started quizzing when a coworker of mine turned me on to the quiz and mentioned GWD was looking for a Tacoma quizmaster. I went through the pre-req community college course, the ritual hazing, the bleeding/burning of saint if I ever left the family, and the chopping off of my ring finger on my right hand. I'm told this is all legit and there was no need to look it up to check.

You can find me at the Forum on Tuesdays at 8:30. I highly suggest ordering the Juicy Lucy while you're there.

I Got Away With Saying BDSM In Front Of Children
lambchop

I think tonight perfectly exemplifies why we have the 6 person rule in place.  The score difference between our two teams with 7+ people and the teams under the limit (all 2 player teams actually) was outstanding.  More heads really are better, but so in staying under the limit and being able to win prizes!   And you always know it’s a good quiz night when you have to explain what BDSM is to somebody.  See, we all come to Geeks Who Drink to have fun and maybe learn a thing or two, and I think that quizzer walked away having learned more than she was expecting.   Knowing

No, that's not how I'm feeling about writing this blog, although that would be nice considering I'm doing this while clocked in at my day job. COME AT ME, HR!

From Citizen Kane to Election to They Live to Homer’s run for Sanitation Commissioner, it’s like we’re in a never-ending cycle of political fuckery.

I can never say enough about the staff or the patrons at Tony's.  It is truly a treat every Tuesday night to be able to spend time with all of you.  One thing that I haven't raved enough about is the food at Tony's.  I don't usually order too much there, maybe just some cheese curds (Amazing) to snack on while I'm setting up the sound equipment but last night brought in a whole other wrinkle, possibly a Tuesday night tradition.  Tony's makes an amazing Double Decker Grilled Cheese sandwich.  It was lovely.  So much cheese, exactly what the doctor ordered.  Nobody calls me Doctor Morgan; Captain maybe.   10 teams last night.  20%

I can't believe I took a break from Pokemon Go! for this! I mean, I totally can believe that but there was a Nidoking down the road!

Hello fellow geeks and nerds! What a lovely night for quizzo! We had two returning teams and three new ones. I was so excited to see new faces! It was a great game and all of the teams fought hard to beat out the returning champs for the first place crown. I hope everyone had a blast!

What’s a four-letter word for confused as hell?
That Guy Evan

  There were a lot of four-letter words said last night, mostly because every answer in round 4 contained only four letters, but also because the first round was all about another four-letter word (Asia) that gave some teams a false sense of confidence that would begin to erode later in the evening, particularly during the visual round, which included bits of musical memorabilia from the Hard Rock Cafe that threw off a lot of folks, as well as round 6, which was filled with many verbose clues that seemed to confound people more than they might have expected.  I won’t lie – I tripped over my words more than a few times on that round, but it’s all good because
