Music is a blessing and a curse.
Major Tom

I don't listen to the radio anymore. I haven't for a few years. I think that the way radio stations work is one of the worst things for music that there could possibly be. It used to be that I would get in the car for a short trip, and the first thing I would do would be to turn on the radio. Almost invariably, there would be a commercial on, and I would change the channel, only to hear a commercial on that station as well. If there wasn't a commercial, there would be some DJ talking incessantly. By the time I got home, I might have heard one actual song. To add insult to injury, it was always the same song. Radio always plays the same few bands over and over, and always plays the worst song

My name is Tom.  I got into this gig by kicking everyone's ass at the Quiz at Club Congress on a weekly basis until they pretty much had to give me a job.  Now I do 2 clubs in Tucson, and you should be at both of them.  Besides doing this, I play in a ska-punk band called Troy's Bucket, and I have a job teaching 7th grade social studies.  I'm a huge metal and punk fan, but I also dig a lot of other stuff.  Halloween is my Christmas.  A lot of that has to do with my birthday, December 24th, being totally ignored thanks to Christmas.  I left the sinking ship that is Detroit, but I still love the Red Wings.  That's a hockey team.  Hockey is the greatest sport in the world.  I am single, so feel free to line up at the QM's table to meet me.  I drink Guinness, so feel free to send one my way.  I still won't give you any extra points.

Dating Site School
QuizBitch Jen

Or... Hookups.com   While our much younger team (Keith Honcho) was clearly more in tune with the dating scene and knew more of the popular dating sites for Round 3, Murder-Horse ended up dominating Round 7 by knowing their Knights and Dames.   Trash talk abounded during every bonus question. Keith Honcho thought they knew who Wayne Campbell was from Wayne's World, but talked their way through to the answer enough that the other team got there first. I ended up giving them both a prize since it was truly a collaborative effort.   And I guess I'm not as funny as I think I am. Round

I'll Make You Famous
Taylor

Well, I won't make you famous - but Lisa with the Sacramento News and Review might.  That's the photographer who came around our quiz last night to take pictures.  I want to throw out a big thanks to all of you who made the trip out - my two favorite Lannisters (Amy and Q), Scott and Laura, the whole Disney crew, the Deuce himself.  The place was packed and that's gonna look pretty darn good on camera!  I expect I'll see a lot of you back during the Nintendo quiz, which makes me even more excited for it! You know what's funny?  A room full of nerds that know a ton a dating sites, but almost nothing about Star Wars or Deadpool.  And yes, I'm making that
[ ...more... ]

Can you tell a rainbow, "Hey - stop being a rainbow!"?  NO!    Such is Taylor. 

 

What can I say?  I'm a pub quiz-obsessed Geek who has an unnaturally strong affection for Star Wars, Marvel, cosplay, and just about any other nerdy thing you can think of (minus anime - I have SOME standards).  Things I hate?  How about Quentin Tarantino films, France (I'm AMerican, so I have to), the whole state of Michigan, and the show Ancient Aliens, just to name a few.  Born in the Promised Land (aka Ohio), lived in Los Angeles (aka Shit Hole), Los Alamos (aka Leave it to Beaver-ville), and now Davis, CA.  You can generally find me at the movies or at your nearest Comic Book convention - I'll be the one dressed up, so you should totally be able to spot me.

I used to be a die hard GWD player before taking on the mantle of quizinatrix - but I yelled at my teammates too much and decided I should try a new path to getting my quiz-fix before I lost any friends.  Lucky for me, the QM spot opened up at El Farol and I may or may not have traded sexual favors with several GWD employees to be given the job (if there are no photos, it never happened).  You all have been putting up with me ever since.

So since you've been on this page, I'll expect to see you at my Pub Quizes!  Oh, and bring your safety word - you're gonna need it.

It was a lot of fun and y'all are kind of ridiculous, but I like it. So, funny story. Remember how I made you all pose for pictures and smile and look happy and shit? Yeah... My phone possibly died today. Like, I can't get it to turn on or charge. IDK WTF the problem is since it isn't even a year old and it just turned off in my hands without any trauma or whatever. I just know it appears to be dead. So yeah. The pictures I took died with it. So I thought, oh I'll just post a picture of the answer sheet

It's Your Wedding. You Can Get Drunk if You Want To
Mother%$#@er of Dragons

  There once was a quiz that was held. At the Tavern, it went very well. Questions were asked. Wrong answers were given But fun was had for the masses to tell.   Seriously though, I am at a loss for words this week because there was a team of men. 4 Men. 4 grown ass men. They seemed smart enough. I like them well enough. But they answered King Kong for a question that was Return of the Jedi. So I publicly shamed them and made them understand that the quiz is for geeks. Geeks who drink. But they also need to know things about Star Wars and Star Trek and comic books. It's pretty much implied in the name of the quiz. Am I right?   Things

I'm still pretty new to this Quizmaster thing, but I think I've got the hang of it.

1) Find the biggest guy in the place, walk up to him and punch him in the craw.

2) Always sit with people that look like you.

3) Don't pick up the soap when you drop it.

Wait, that was for something else I did. AWWWWWWWWWKWARRRRRRD.

I've been a Quizmaster since March, 2014, and now that they feel I've got the hang of it, they've finally allowed me to stay close to home and host Thursday nights at The Tavern at St. Michael's Square. 

A little about me. I like long walks in dark alleys. Whenever somebody makes a point to talk about how much they dislike something, I will always find a reason to like it and argue with them. And finally, if we found out that the world was going to end tomorrow, there is a lot of people that would need to go out and buy a protective cup, because there are a lot of people in the world that I would love to kick squarely in the crotch. 

See you at Quiz!!!

Episode 4: An Elegy to Rowdy Roddy Piper
RESII

Declaration Brewing continues to better itself. A new record 15 teams converged to kick ass and chew bubblegum. The team that kicked the most ass was More Better. Two teams, Betsy Ross and the Supremes and Drinks Who Geek, finished second. The Enid Coleslaws and The Midwesties tied for fourth.   If sentence two felt familiar, it’s because I wrote a sentence similar last week. Both sentences were homages to the best line in They Live, a great film starring the now-sadly-deceased Rowdy Roddy Piper.   Even if you don’t like wrestling, you could tell

RESII was born in the 17th state of the union under the sweltering summer sun.  From humble beginnings, this future Buckeye became third best player on the middle school chess team (out of four).  After that, his life became a blur of Mountain Dew and worse decisions.  In his spare time, he enjoys highlights of Buster Tillman, not giving change to the homeless, and Harper Lee novels.  This is his first production of Geeks Who Drink.  He would like to thank his lucky stars and all his deceased pets for helping him cope with the good times.

Tonight's Quiz Brought to You By Bulgarian Dating Sites
David Mitchell

Good evening everyone, tonight's quiz had us go through an epic journey through the imagination...or something like that. Round one had us studying cheap shills, y'know like Apple and XBox. Next we took a lesson in learning how to SHUT THE FUCK UP in French, round three had us using those French skills to woo lovers on the creepiest websites NOT TINDER GODDAMMIT! I've used most of those sites, and most of them suck.   Round four was all about the Brits and JK Rowling, which we followed up by travelling through movieland to expand Liongate to faux Lions. Then we landed in Bulgaria and learned about everyone's favorite country. Following that we listened to some Knights

Hey Huberts. So clearly I am not the majestic sex beast that is your usual quizmaster Alex. I'm the cheap store-brand variety. My name is Nate and despite the fact that "I don't know what trees are", and "my mom still buys my clothes for me", and "I get scared of my own farts" I feel that I'm more than adequate in taking on Alex's enormous shoes (you know what that means ladies).   In Round One of tonight's quiz we asked teams to remember all the great times they saw a poorly- placed product in one of their favorite movies. Also ads featuring children, because life isn't cruel enough? Anyway, our teams were

Old Faces and New Places
Nicknames are Hard

In 1874, the Centennial of Chemistry in the U.S. was celebrated by chemists meeting at Northumberland, Pa. where Joseph Priestley was buried after spending the last years of his life in America. The chemists commemorated the 100th anniversary of Priestley's discovery of the element oxygen on 1 Aug 1774, regarded as the most important link in the chain of events which eventually led to the overthrow of the phlogistic hypothesis. The memorial exercises were planned to include an address by Professor Joseph Henry, an Essay on American Contributions to Chemistry by Benjamin Silliman, Jr., and a loan exhibition of Priestley's apparatus, books and manuscripts. The event was initiated by Henry Bolton.   I'm

Ya Filthy Animals!
Lady Busty

I have a great deal on my mind, as I think about what happened to Cecil the Lion, how it's not an isolated incident, how trophy hunting is much the same in animals as in humans ("notch in my belt"), and how we'll be outraged until the next thing outrages us. Yes, I'm a bit cynical today. It keeps any optimism I have in check. But, I don't want to burden anyone with my deep, dark thoughts on animal nature. I lost a gosling yesterday and I'm still upset about it. I don't need to bring anyone down with me. I just want to take the time to thank friends for being there, whether I knew at the time that I needed you or not. I have the best friends in the world. You know who you are.
[ ...more... ]

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 seven rabbits, six chickens, four ducks, four cats, two dogs, two goats, and two turtles.

All cheap shills, great and small. - About product placements and ads featuring kids. 2. Ferme La Boosh (audio round!) 3. This round is lonely and desperate. - A speed round on dating sites 4.

She finally came...
KevinSpaulding

Thursday night marked a little bit of history for Geeks Who Drink at Adventure Brewing Company. This happened to be the one year mark that Adventure Brewing has had Geeks Who Drink come in on a weekly basis to host quizzes every Thursday night. It also happened to be the first time that my lovely wife had an opportunity to stop by and play. She was super excited that our oldest son (almost 3) stayed at the beach with his grandparents that would make it possible for her to come to trivia with just our 10 week old.  With rounds about shutting your mouth, ad placements, and lonely people, my wife and everyone else were in for a fun and competitive night.

The Queen Is Boned
Tim

Greetings.   This quiz was a bit of a toughy, and took most of you to the woodshed, with one notable, victorious exception. The music round on shutting up was rough, and round eight was even worse. There were not many high jokered scores to be had. However, a hard quiz doesnt mean an un-fun quiz, and I think we all managed to have a good time. We learned in round seven that the Queen of England is screwed should she ever need to call upon her knights, as they all seem to be old or dead actors. Good luck with that. Where is Sir Lancelot when you need him?   Anyway, congrats to BSA, More Like BSGay, Am I Right? for grabbing the lead

Hey gang,

I have been a quizmaster since all the way back in early 2014. I am a pop culture sponge and have a head full of useless knowledge, so I figured I would put it to work in the best way possible: barking trivia questions at drunkards. When I am not hanging out in bars trying to make people feel stupid, I am a humble public servant in the employ of the United States Government.

I am a worldly gentleman of dignity and refinement, and a student of the human condition. That is a nice way of saying I am a snarky asshole who judges people while doing nothing meaningful with his life. I am a sci-fi nerd, a fantasy nerd, a science nerd and a history nerd (a useless college major, I have discovered to my dismay). 

Regardless, I am happy to be part of the Geeks family and look forward to quizzing in all of your faces!

The place was full and the Tetris blocks were posed to fall on us, but they stayed hanging above, casting a nice glow over the venue. Later I found out that the Tetris blocks were made by the bar staff! HOLY COW THAT’S AWESOME!!! So how much is it gonna cost me to have a set made for my place? Round three made me chuckle…I read the hint twice and still people were asking “so like grindr?”…uh no grindr is an app! Like Tinder…duh. Even one person asked why GWD was singling out the users of these site, because only people who use them really know about them.  I told them it was ok because 80% of the people there used at least one of these, and
