What Makes This Owl So Superb?
Philopher

This past Sunday, the eyes of the world were on San Francisco, as the Carolina Panthers took on the Denver Broncos in a matchup that was oh god who the hell cares?! I am so glad football season is finally over. Why do people get so obsessed with rich people in armor tossing around a leather egg? I guess this year was special because our city is in one of the two states it calls home. Another way to put it is the most local branch of a national multi-million dollar company is located only a few hours drive from Raleigh, so let's cheer them! Many people were up in arms over the halftime

Hey, I'm Phil. Maybe you recognize me from some of the improv comedy shows you've seen in the area. Or maybe you recognize me as Sheik Admir al-Akbar from GOUGE pro wrestling. There's also the chance you recognize me from any number of bars or concerts.

Or maybe, just maybe, you recognize me from your dreams.

Under Cover!
Mark

Helloooooo Geeks! Wednesday Quiz means Wednesday Blog, so here you go: It's come to my attention that some of you, or maybe a lot of you, maybe even all of you like my collection of cover songs. I had a conversation with a couple quizzers between rounds tonight about some of the songs I played. I even got a couple suggestions for some new additions for the coming weeks. It's kind of a hobby. It started with all those "Punk Goes..." albums that came out several years ago, and I've only gotten more involved. It's to a point where I'm listening to songs I never really listened to, or genres I never listen to for that matter, because the covers are so good. Seriously,

Sweet City Jesus And The Filler
AdrianTrevino

Back in August, I wrote a journal entry where I predicted the taking of the nominations for both parties by Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, discounting Jeb Bush as falling to the back of the pack, and saying the voters will refuse to trust Hillary Clinton. Last night's primary (despite what quizzer John says) is pretty much going to be repeated throughout the remaining nominating contests, not without the occasional "unexpected" moment or two, resulting in a Sanders nomination on the Democrat side. On the Republican side, however, there's still a chance that someone else could take the nomination; a very slim chance due to two reasons: 1) if someone

OH GOSH, THERE'S SUPPOSED TO BE SOMETHING EXTREMELY FUNNY HERE, BUT I CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING FUNNY TO PUT HERE, OH GOSH OH GOSH, WHAT AM I DOING I CAN'T COMPUTER TODAY.

 

Anyways! I love QMing, it beats the living HELL out of my day job; I play guitar and absolutely love Death Metal, and I like wearing cuban shirts and smoking cigars and watching Star Trek. I also like making dumb jokes.  I tend to stay towards the middle of the road when it comes to... well, anything. I also do a lot of referential humor, so this only helps but serve that purpose. And the purpose of having a night to go to a bar to drink. Yes.

 

Well.

 

Good on 'ya.

Jennifer

After the resounding success of Monday’s new GWD venue I was prepared for a slow and under-attended Tuesday quiz. However, you guys just can’t get enough and we still had a great turn out. We had some great team names tonight, such as Hilary Got Some Sanders in Her Vagina and These Beads Smell Funny… also team Warren Does It Better gets an anti-mention for being poo poo faces. You broke my heart guys… you broke my heart! We started the night with handing out gift cards and having a dance off for who sucked the most. Then Kelly and I handed out 8 sets of true and false fact sheets. Then you guys all spit up

Fat Tuesday!

You guys, I hosted quiz on Fat Tuesday. Heh. Okay, I'm done laughing at myself. I really wish I had worn my sweet "Does This Shirt Make Me Look Fat" shirt though. But, such is life. There's always next Fat Tuesday. Which...you know, will be on a Tuesday, and therefore a quiz night. NEXT YEAR.Not dissimilar to how I always play "Backseat Freestyle" on Martin Luther King Jr. Day for my Monday quizzes: it's always on a Monday. And it's glorious. Anyway, those are my only cool holiday anecdotes. Sorry.  Moving on to quiz... Round 1: I love these rounds, because

What a hell of a night. A Quizmaster tryout, Ninkasi rep. handing out samples, Jesse healing up in the hospital and JOHNNY GOT ENGAGED!!! Geeks find love too, it’s true. Owner Glen was in high spirits with his wife’s recent hip surgery going well, but she can’t do house work at the moment…take the good with the bad my friend, Shylo and Ashley were allllll sorts of giggly and happy to serve the patrons and I walk in with back pain and left without.

JC Rockafeller

I think that was the first time I’ve seen you guys legit crack up over one of the questions…or at least my delivery of one of the questions. Needless to say I was entertained. Give me some nigh-unpronounceable sportsball player names and I will butcher the shit out of them for your amusement. You’re welcome.   Once again we had a fantastic quiz tonight. I’d personally call this one of the easier quizzes in recent memory, but with that slight dip in difficulty we had a definite spike in entertainment. Sometimes I prefer a straight up fun round to an overly challenging one, and this week we definitely had plenty of fun. Tonight’s rounds ran

What good is one man's life?  60... 80... 100 years?  A drop in the bucket of eternity.  A man does not live forever.  But a legacy.. lives on beyond man. Interred with one's bones is the good a man does in life.  It echoes in eternity.  The Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz is one such of man's goods.  What you dedicate yourself to, will give back tenfold in loyalty.

'Ello Govnah
Hopeless Semantic

 Does anybody in London actually say cheerio? Just how often do they run into the Governor? Do they even speak Cockney in the East End? I'm sure those are all insulting questions that we didn't ask tonight in a quiz that was chalked full of UK goodness. We had whole rounds on their civil war, London's east end and the treaties that became U.S. cities.    And I love a nice competitive quiz. Ones where the teams go up and down and someone pulls it off at the last second. This was...............ONE OF THOSE QUIZZES. If looking at the scores going into round 6 has anything to say, I thought Political Jeff was going to win it for sure. But with

It Feels Different At 40...
Kirk

Last week, we celebrated my 40th birthday with a rocking night - and just like the day after a birthday, things calmed down quite a bit this week with just enough teams to give away all the prizes.  BUT, we got to sit here, drink beer, watch the Coogs take down Memphis, play some solid tunes, and learn all about how a kite is really a rhombus, or something like that. We have a new streak started, as a team that just joined us for the first time last week posted their second win in a row tonight.  Our team name theme was "Fortune Cookies" and these guys didn't disappoint, as Confucius Say Slanted Vagina Extra Five Dollar went wire to wire tonight for the brace

Power Rangers Video Game Console?
The Fortress

I love getting funny answers. I swear, reading best worst answer is my favorite part of quiz. However I have to put my foot down on Power Rangers being a Nintendo video game console. However I did enjoy the team who just wrote Cher for every answer they didn't know. I mean, seriously what can't Cher do? Land Rovers on Mars? Sing Gonna Make You Sweat? Cher is omnipresent, and we should be so thankful to bask in her wonderfulness 24/7.    I would also like to point out that cheering for yourself when you get answers right is encouraged. Always has been, always will be. However I couldn't help but be the one to cheer when Every team got the answer "50

Yeah, well what can I say about myself...A LOT! 

But I won't. I'm just your regular quiz-mistressing chick on in the city. Sounds like a million dollar sitcom idea to me. 

Actually QM's are more of 250K reality show idea on MTV. My show would be akin to Jersey Shore, but no fist pumping or pregnant short people.

I should not have been surprised by how loud the giggling was when I said "Pujols"
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!What a nice night tonight! The weather was mild enough for people to sit on the porch, and we still had quite the turnout! We started the night by "Two-Stepping the ABC's," with each of your answers having initials that were in sequential alphabetical order. So the 2003 Oscar winner was Adrien Brody, the currency that eclipsed ours in 2007 was the Canadian Dollar, two many awful sci-fi movies start with "Escape From," etc. Easy-peasy.The music round was all songs in which somebody "Wooooo!"s. Some of these were surprisingly obscure-ish, like knowing the name of Blur's Song 2. But some of y'all got it anyway!Round 3 was a nice

New Rules
Ash Plissken

As some of you all may know, I happen to subtly dislike a few things in life (but only a few).  I feel like I'm a pretty open and honest QM, so I've shared some of these things with you.  I also instituted our venue's Victory Song policy - where I reward our winners by playing the victory song of their choice at the end of the quiz.  What do I get in return for being so forthcoming and generous?  I get a winning team who purposefully picks the worst effing songs ever - and yeah, I'm talking about The Replacements.   There's going to be a few changes around the bar, such as: 1. No victory song may come from, or be a cover of any song from,

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), Davis, CA and now San Diego.  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.

To be fair, DMX nearly dies every day of his life
Christian

Tonight's quiz featured a visual round on death pool favorites, and I must admit I had to double check on Zsa Zsa Gabor twice tonight to ensure that she was still among us. The rest of the round was relative gravy, but I most appreciated the team that really went for it. Not naming names, but their answers included a) Coco Chanel, who died in 1971. b) Goldie Hawn, who apparently is the hottest septuagenarian this side of Helen Mirren (call me), and c) DMX, who may be 45, but to his credit, basically escapes death every day of his life. TALK IS CHEAP! ARF ARF! Meanwhile, round two was

What do you mean C-3PO wasn't helpful?
Darth Gargamel

That's crazy talk. All he ever tried to do was help those ungrateful bastards and all they ever did was make fun of him, threaten to rip his arm off and and leave him to be shot. Dicks. He also wasn't a navigator. He was a protocol droid that specialized in over 6 million forms of communication. Honestly I think he was really the hero of the Battle of Endor. Without him the Ewoks never would have participated and the deflector shield never would have come down. Then where would we be? Exactly. Oh, there was a quiz or some shit last night. I don't know. I got so worked up about the 3PO bullshit I stopped paying attention. RUUU BIIII OOOO (Like from Hook) won after coming

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.
