Well that was like a whole shark week crammed into one night! That was a lot of fun, gang. Thanks for coming. You’re all my new BFFs. Our new pre-reg system seemed to work. Had a good sized crowd, didn’t have to turn anyone away or put any babies in the corner. Kudos to A Blaffair to Rememblack for being fully costumed. I wasn’t wearing a costume unless “Bryton had a job interview before the quiz” counts as a costume. Gar helped me out at scoring and was resplendent in Geeks Who Drink wear. I had a lot of fun putting together the bonus prizes, hope you winners liked them. My customizable trucker

My Birthday!
Drew

So I want to thank all the people who came to hang out and do trivia with me on my birthday, we had a blast and got a little tipsy. If you missed it this week you can always come out next Thursday and be part of the shenanigans. We had a huge turnout and everybody put up a good fight for the win. This week really came down to strategically using those jokers on the right rounds. Come on otu next week, the beer is cold and the staff is cool, at the Unknown Brewery.

Let Me Be Frank!
Jake

Wow. WOW. So much to say! It was our first-ever 30 Rock Theme Quiz, held at Laurelwood Public House, and we totally went to there. I love theme quizzes – it is geekery on a whole new level. You take a bunch of people, most of whom are already familiar with the Geeks Who Drink thing (GWD 4 LYFE!) and then you give them the questions about Jacky-D, Lesbian Yellow-Sour-Fruit, the dude with no chin, and the one who wants to take things behind a dumpster and get them pregnant, and you’ve got yourself a quiz there, bub. And we were prepared too! I’d been dreaming of this day, and so I had hand-made posters, stickers, and even a real cast

In a land far, far away, in a time in the not-too-distant future, in an era dominated by dragons, one man was born - nay - created - nay - FORGED from the fires of Valhella (which is part Valhalla, part... well, you get it), and came upon this earth seeking geeks, not for punching, but in order to be a part of their geekery. He searched far, wide, deep, across, shallow and even in the fourth dimension for eons until he came upon the great city of Portland, where the geeks flowed like PBR. "Get thee to a nerdery!" they cried, and it was here that the man struck his mighty staff into the earth with the force of a million bluebirds carrying a thousand hippopotami carrying twenty-three tanks, and the earth opened upon to him, releasing the demonspawn of Australia, which all happened to be drunk upon Foster's. After defeating them with his vorpal sword of might, he descended upon Portland (and related metropolitan area) to take his place at the throne of geeks. He made slaves of many, including Jake, who runs pub quizzes!

I was the lucky substitute QM tonight at Jake’s, and I hope Tristan keeps me on speed dial to sub again sometime, because I love this venue!  The staff was so friendly and helpful, and the regular quizzers were witty and smart.  The food here is also fantastic, and there’s a huge beer garden, so be sure to visit this RiNo spot this summer. Quiz was pretty tricky tonight, but our teams rose to the challenge.  I was particularly impressed about how many people could cull

  Oh man. 30 Rock. I love this show. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I think I’ve watched the entire series 4 times so far. and am currently working on my fifth. Cause hey. theme quiz made me do it. Plus, this is my first theme quiz as the host at The Cube BBQ.  I do love me some theme quizzes. I haven’t hosted one since last years Marvel quiz I think. Which is a whole other topic of fandom. But if you read this blog you know I love me some comic books. This was our first theme quiz doing Pre-Registration for teams and it went smashingly! I hope we continue to do this as it made checking in

How The Folk Does Weird Al Keep Doing It?
Hardwuar

Greetings Loved Ones, it is I Hardwuar, The Human Quiziette, here to bring the sights and sounds from another exciting night from Hennessey’s Tavern in beautiful, sunny Manhattan Beach. While the sun may have set, the heat was on as 11 teams lined up for an opportunity to take home the top prize, and the even more important bragging rights. It was truly a great night returning from a 2-week hiatus as I migrated home to the wonderful Boston, MA and Hennessey’s had a little makeover, adding this wall to wall booth that just made me feel so close with some of our quizzers. But enough about me, this was a heavily contested battle, and there’s only one way to find out who finished

The Accordion is the Soul of Music
Sweet Adam

SCHEDULE UPDATE: 7/14 QUIZ WILL BE HELD ON WEDNESDAY 7/13 Weird Al, perhaps the best person to ever carry a moniker like “weird” will melt your face with his accordion skills. According to the ever-reliable source of Wikipedia he received accordion lessons at the age of six. I’m all for music in a child’s upbringing. Flute, clarinet, trumpet, sax might come first before I come to the consensus that yes, the accordion is the best choice for my child. Maybe there’s some innate ability within some children to pick up the accordion and develop mad parody composing skills? Whatever the reason, thanks to his parents for giving that man the right
[ ...more... ]

Across the assorted continuities of the universe, there have been various interpretations of Adam. One of Adam's most notable characteristics in any form was his adamant commitment to leadership by example, and avoidance of any hypocrisy in his command. Adam is a wise and essentially upbeat battlefield general.

Other minor details about Adam's personality and personal life — for example, his dislike of rap music ("Blaster Blues" and "Quest for Survival"), which set him at odds with some music-loving characters. Adam also enjoys televised sports, most notably softball which he even plays ("The Master Builder"), as well as setting up a basketball court outside the quiz. Though Adam's personality is like that of a human man age 40-50, he is not above watching afternoon soap operas.

I like gin and tonics.

Better late than never.
Tom Servo!

What a hectic week it has been for Ole' Qm Tom Serv0, Not only is my regular job kicking my ass, but I have been part of a super secret playtest for a new boardgame. Good News, its over. Bad News....it's over. Which sucks, but also is good to have my nights free again. Speaking of nights, let's talk about QUIZ NIGHT!! So lets start with... A RECAP!   TEAM NAME(S) THAT I LOVED!! No Cat...Just Dog STUNT COCKS!   We have no Brexit plan.            
[ ...more... ]

Huh? My story? Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi...

Gawd I love that movie.

I been Quizmaster since December of 2010ish and its only getting better, so when IM not scouring the toy shops or quizzing, or working for the Man.

As far as my softer side, I do enjoy live theatre and try to perform as much as possible myself, whether it be in a musical or stage play, but I also try to do Improv.

Yes just like "Whose Line".

 

So let me sign off by saying this,

 I don't need any of this. I don't need this stuff, and I don't need *you*. I don't need anything. Except this. 

And that's the only thing I need is *this*. I don't need this or this. Just this ashtray... And this paddle game. - The ashtray and the paddle game and that's all I need...

And this remote control. - The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that's all I need...

And these matches. - The ashtray, and these matches, and the remote control, and the paddle ball... And this lamp. - The ashtray, this paddle game, and the remote control, and the lamp, and that's all *I* need. And that's *all* I need too.

I don't need one other thing, not one... I need this. - The paddle game and the chair, and the remote control, and the matches for sure. Well what are you looking at? What do you think I'm some kind of a jerk or something! - And this. That's all I need.
 The ashtray, the remote control, the paddle game, and this magazine, and the chair.

 And I don't need one other thing, except my dog.

Serious Quizzers Inquire Within
Mother%$#@er of Dragons

It was a nice, mellow night for quiz. The regular teams that came out were in it to win it. With a top score of 90 by The Montana Bear Sprayers was the highest we've had in a really long time. It may have helped that they got a perfect 16 on a bonus 16 point round, but whatever, it was there for the taking.   Honestly, I hate reviewing quiz with covering rounds and scores. It seems to make for a really boring blog, but it was such a peaceful night and I wasn't going to work today, so we just cruised through the rounds, finished on time, and then hung out and talked shop with everyone.   I'm headed out to a Grateful Dead show

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!!!

THANK YOU FOR SIGNING UP FOR "WEIRD AL" FACTS
Dark Lord of Quiz

FACT: "Weird Al" Yankovic is not directly related to America's Polka King Frankie Yankovic. However, it was Frank's success that inspired Al's parents to purchase him an accordion when he was nearly 6 years old instead of a guitar.CLEARLY THE REST IS HISTORY. Actually, that's an odd statement. If the rest has already happened, then of course it's history. Alfred Matthew Yankovic is still alive and creating, so technically it's history IN THE MAKING...But yeah, we all know that Al is an accordion virtuoso or whatever. Speaking of "Weird Al" Yankovic, we finally had a round 2 dealing with his creations on Thursday evening at

America’s Next Best Holiday: Canada Day!
BJ the Gozerian

Fireworks in the Great White North. Does it make me racist if I say that I like fireworks? Yeah? Damn. In my many many years of quizmastering, many many years read as about 1.5 years, I think I have only seen a handful of scores that hit the high 80’s. That was changed last night when two of our teams broke 90, by one and two points, taking second and first place, respectively. I think it was the Weird Al. Or the question specifically about Washington. Probably all of that. Oh, those teams, respectively, were BJ’s Frosted Cake and Quizlamic Extremists. Small Woodland Creatures that Leave

Mellow Greetings! It's me, BJ, the lovable scamp, coming to you from a building of sorts in ol' Pasco in Eastern Warshingtoneia. The desert, with one s, because you only want to meet one snake in the desert. You want beer? I have beer, that I made, with my own two hands, and lots of equipment, and sometimes other people's two hands. Been doing it for years. Its pretty good. My dad doesn't like any of the beers I make because he is a big wuss that could beat me up. But he won't, because I'm too fast. I can also write you a story, or a comic, or a movie, cause that's what I do. Kind of. But I can sell your house and help you buy a new one, because I'm a REALTOR (all caps because I can). You wanna go play pinball? Awesome, me too! We have so much in common. Let's chill sometime, bring our spouses, of which I have one wifal unit, and dog(s)/cat(s), of which I also have one and two units, respectively. See you tomorrow!

Grade school taught us many valuable lessons.  How to write in cursive.  What fractions are.  How to use a dictionary.  None of those skills are relevant anymore because we all write in block letters, we have calculators on our wrists, and there's fucking wikipedia.  But here are some basic lessons you should have learned that apparently you didn't. Over There's- oh where to begin.  First, when I give you an answer packet, use it.  Don't just find a random napkin and start writing shit down.  Also, yes, we all know it's Whitney Houston, but DON'T SHOUT OUT THE ANSWERS! That's like rule 1 of classroom etiquette.  Rule 2 is

Oh, what a night! The quiz attendees may have been few, but they were mighty! I honestly don’t know when the last time was that I laughed so much. I was actually a little sore from it. But I’ll take a little pain, it was worth it! It’s been a long week… This week we sorted through Junes gone by, rocked out to Weird Al covers, and tested your knowledge of weird city names. We dished about princesses, identified passed on authors, and got dumb about some blondes. We heard famous people skwak and talked about dead parents. We also established that B. Nektar

Had a fantastic night at Stagecoach for their first themed quiz, all about 30 Rock!  We had 14 teams in all, learning about cheesy blasters, muffin tops, the meat machine, and it was all about that night cheese.  Even though we had a small scoring snafu, during which the wrong team got name first place, everyone still seemed to have a good time.  It came down to a tie between Jackie Jormp Jomps and The Muffin Tops, with the muffin tops taking home the cash prize!!  See you all next week, and don't forget your tuxedo.  After all, what are we, farmers?

The Babe With The Power

 How great is Tina Fey?? She worked her way up to being the head writer for the big daddy of television sketch shows, wrote and starred in the movie "Mean Girls" that is quoted to this day, created and starred in "30 Rock" which is widely considered a "landmark series," and is forging ahead in the still-new medium of internet content-providers with Netflix's "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt." I'm not even listing everything and I'm already exhausted!What really got me into Fey and her work was what everyone came for on Thursday, Geeks Who Drink's latest theme quiz about the hilarious and great "30 Rock."
