And We All Drank To Knowing Very Little!
The Grand Lord Octavius

Hello folks both young and old. This week at the Valley Taphouse we had the opposite of last week. It was a little quieter, a little less crowded, my throat is a bit healthier (insert gay joke here).  All that means is that the competition was a bit more relaxing, we had way more winners and less losers, and also, we weren't punished for not knowing anything! This week we encountered questions about Pot, Picasso, and Poop rewritten into Broadway Musicals.  We also dealt with Pokemon, National Parks, and Pwning some noobs at Scrabble.  If that sounded in anyway interesting, don't worry, we didn't know any of it either. But that's most of the fun! Join

Hello all, I am Kyle and I would love to be your Quizmaster this evening.

 

I have an irrational love for all things nerdy, I am terrible at pronouncing geography, and I tend to go a bit megalomanic on my blog.

The Invisible HJ
PeteGilmore

Adam Smith spoke of the invisible hand that drives the economy.  It reminded me of the very visible hands of my first girlfriend and the day we got that pamphlet in health class, 101 things to do without doing it.  Honest sex ed. is something that Texas needs.  Gov. Abbot, if you want to fix education here, start with sex ed.  Smarter parents/parenting will lead to smarter kids and we all know what that means...the future of pub quiz is bright!  That is really the point I'm trying to make, we need higher scores.  I know you only had 6 rounds instead of the usual 8, and one of those missing rounds was a 16 pointer but, the scores just weren't where they could be.

Did you miss me?
Nightglow

I'm telling you, women's soccer is a portent of good things at the draft house. I've said for a long time that you can become a fan of any sport, provided you watch one really good game. Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals. Rocco Mediate vs Tiger Woods in the 2008 US Open. Super Bowl XLII. For me and soccer, it was the 2006 world cup 3rd place game between host country Germany and Portugal. I had never watched a game, and I became enthralled, as Portugal pressed hard on the attack for 90 solid minutes but just could not get a shot to convert. Germany won that game 3-1, but I left with an interest in the world's most popular game. But with every season and every tournament, I keep being

"CARS 2!!! NOOOOOO"
Brad

Tonight the difference between first and second place was a single point! Just one. Had Can You See Uranus? just remembered about the cinematic mediocrity known as Cars 2, they'd have been the victor. Instead, it was all Dependence Day, who rallied in the final round with a 13-point jokered performance. It was great to see teams returning, including Bear + A Shot and Jurassic Squirrel. But why are you here reading this blog when you can be watching all of Stacked on Hulu? OH, BABY! Stacked! A show so great the five final

Kaboom!
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight. 16 might be a venue record, and that’s awesomesauce with a cherry on top. Bring your friends and let’s push this bad boy over 18 three weeks and a row so that I get a scorekeeper and get paid the same amount to work 80% as hard. Yeah buddy! Blah, blah. So. July 4th is banging on the front door. On the ride in to host today I heard the alarmist social agenda media trying to ruin the birth of our nation by insisting that fireworks cause, among other things, “…coughing, scratchy throats, sneezing, maybe asthma, and early death.” Okay. Pro tip. If you are going to shoot off fireworks, don’t light anything

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.

Disclaimer: Roughly 70% of the above is true. The other 40%... total fabrication and folly.

"It's Dark. And We're Wearing Sunglasses."

It's Canada Day! I don't really know the best way to celebrate such a holiday. Watch a bunch of SCTV? Eat a lot of syrup? I'm too 'Murican to enjoy Canadian whiskey. Maybe I'll celebrate by listening to some Leonard Cohen. Yeah, that works. Canada aside and all that, we had a great quiz tonight at the home of mountain pies.Thinkin's:I could make a Greece joke, but it's is having a hard time, y'all.Scalia has erased any doubt we had about him not being a crazy old man.So I want to know how bad Windows 9 was, that they aren't evening going to talk about it.God, that "Sail" song is so ridiculous.

Waking Up to New Messages from Martin Luther
AdrianTrevino

Doing small, good things for random strangers helps one to feel better, and helps propagate good will further beyond just lending a helping hand to someone you don't know; that person is then compelled to help someone they can in some small way. And then Fink comes in and explains the definition of Facetious to me. Ah, quiz night at Cassidy's...   Canada Day was in full effect tonight, by which I mean I had a Canadian flag up, I opened wup with "O Canada," and played some softer Devin Townsend tunes throughout the night. It should be noted, however, that our resident Canadian Brian wasn't able to join us because he was busy pitching tents in the woods

And the purpose of having a night to go to a bar to drink. Yes.

Remember, there is no "I" in "Team America"
Magical Michael

  I would feel guilty if I didn't do this:   "...Perhaps it's fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom... Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution... but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: 'We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive!' Today we celebrate our Independence Day!"   That concludes my annual reference to Independence Day.

My swan song
PatrickStoudt

Last night included one of my most favoritest types of rounds, the timed third round, and it made me so very happy.  Now I love them in general for their easiness on the host, but for less selfish reasons, this week I loved it for the timer.  If you participated last night then you were privy to the full, un-edited version of the most wonderful tribute song on the map, the tribute song by MouseRat to our long lost friend: Lil’ Sebastian.  For those of you that don’t know what i’m talking about, first go check yourself, and then go find an episode of Parks and Rec, cuz that’s what I’m referencing.  There are so few things in this world that

Hey Everybody...It's Pat.  No, not the sexually ambiguous character from that SNL sketch (I wish), but the man with the lower body of a child bearing woman, except my vagina's an outey. So, I guess sort of ambiguous, but I promise I'm super cool.  I'm a 26 year old high school English teacher in training.  Turns out I love the sound of my own voice so much that I thought I ought to get this job talking in front of strangers on top of teaching their kids.  I am a former full time stand up comedian/imporviser, doing that as much as I possibly still can, so forgive me in advance for constantly trying material on you without you knowing. I don't know what else to say about myself...I like dogs, the Dodgers, and American Lit; so if you're up on any of those then let me know cuz we'll be friends.  If you wanna know anything else just ask, I'm approachable, I swear...I don't bite...too often (only 5 times in my life, which is only like 1 person every 5.2 years).  So there!

Did you know Pies does cream sodas?  This is incredibly relevant given the beautiful weather we’ve been having, because it is hot as hell in Seattle right now.  When I saw a frosted glass with ice cream go by, I knew I was going to make it another day.   Thanks to everyone who came out for the Pride Parade on Sunday!  I’m pleased to say that from my perspective (that is, behind the scenes and behind the starting line), it was the best Pride I’ve ever had, and that’s saying something.  Props to the parade and staging directors; I’ll be back next year.   It seems like, lately, we’ve had something

Sean McNeil (Shamu) was the fourth killer whale ever captured and was the third orca ever displayed in a public exhibit. He was the first orca to survive more than 13 months in captivity and was the star of a very popular killer whale show at SeaWorld San Diego in the mid - late 1960s. After his death in 1971, the name Shamu continued to be used in SeaWorld "Shamu" orca shows for different killer whales in different SeaWorld parks. Little is known about Sean McNeil’s reincarnation as an audio visual tech nerd and publisher, but it has been proven that he was, in fact, a killer whale.

Mmm...Shellfish

Woohoo! That’s what I’m talking about Brockton! Everybody came out of the woodwork tonight for one of the toughest quizzes I’ve hosted in recent memory. We had a killer mix of regulars and newbies, just the way I like it, and the experience showed in the scores all night. Clever jokering, solid answers, and even some apparent good guesses ruled the night. And there was a round on shellfish and a round on ice cream. So as I write this, awaiting the arrival of my shrimp and bacon pizza (mmm……), this fat ki is starving. FEED ME!!!   Sorry, I became hunger Hulk there for a second. But I’m back.

Ah, another night of shitty jokes. And puns. And more poop. Outside that, I had a fantastic time listening to Swedish Chef and Wookie covers of some of today's and yesteryear's hits with our top place team of the night.   And dayum, one of their teammates definitely could nail that Wookie call. The true song of my people.   Nine teams caem to hang out, try their hand at free drinks, and snag a gift card as they went head to head at answering rounds on weed, swimming, canada, and of course the random knowledge round.

Heeeeey, this heat wave though, amirite? Please put your hands in the air if you feel cripplingly sweaty too!Or, actually, maybe don't, because I don't really want to smell it. Like, at all.  It's almost seven in the evening and I'm sitting in my room in my underwear, with two fans blowing directly at me. I have my small amount of head hair clipped up and everything still feels like hell. Maybe I'm alone in this though.

More Like Millard Fill-less. Amirite?
LexSimpson

I’ve been uninspired lately. That’s ok. I’ll mine the past and do a quick bit on a random president. I’m gonna do Millard Fillmore. Because that’s the first name I thought of, and easily our most ridiculously named president. Which is saying something. Millard Fillmore was our 13th President, way back in the middle (literally) of the 19th century, when America was all “We should probably civil war in a decade or so, but let’s wait for more interesting president,” and generally ramp themselves up to a war over slavery that most of the western world had figured out by then and were more interested in Industrial Revolutions

Or, I guess it would be simply "LibertyKraut".  That sounds better.  It'll still taste like shit - but shit laced with freedom and bald eagles.  In case you have no idea why I opened the blog with this then let me just inform you that the US Women's National Soccer Team just pantsed Germany 2-0 in the semi-finals of the World Cup.  IN YOUR FACE GERMANY!  IN YOUR FAAAAACE!  Also, is it just me or did Germany's goalie look like Caitlyn Jenner?  And I mean that in a good way.  Caitlyn has been werkin' it lately.  Anyway, we just found out this afternoon that we'll be facing Japan in the final - so it's basically a repeat of the last World Cup, except

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.

We're All Winners, Right?
Rachelbot

You’re all winners, that’s the biggest take-away from last night. Yesterday evening at The Park Pub, we saw three teams finish in second place. Since it was a little after 10, we settled the score with a simple “Guess the Number I’ve Got.” Our man Derek from “Ignore Me!” got the closest number, so they ended up the prize. But the point was that, damn, a lot of you had really high numbers and impressed me with your random knowledge. Keep it up! In other news, we learned a bit more about Picasso and Michael Phelp’s affinity for weed and gold medals. It was a swimming success last night with just under 20 teams, and it was a treat to quiz
