Scott Stapp in the Name of Love
Travis

We returned to the hallowed halls of Article 24 Tuesday night, where I have discovered a trend with the quizzers who swing by each week. After three months and change running the show at the A-2-4, I think we have pulled together quite a few regulars who have gotten comfortable enough with me to give me a little heckling. I, in return, have done the same. A little healthy smack talk never hurt anyone not named Donald Trump, after all. But one team this week went a little far. Perhaps, I dunno, inspired(?) by the final track we played in Round 2, I found a team reborn, renewed, renamed...Travis Loves Creed! Which circle of Hell does

Deconstructing Bluegrass and/or Firefly
Ramblin' Jan

I promised two very special things would happen last night. First, I'd play an abundance of Bluegrass at a quiz for the first and probably the only time. Second, if you got me drunk I'd slip into a Southern accent. I only delivered on the first promise. It turns out my "Quizmaster Radio Voice" is too intentional to let the good ol' boy slip through. But thanks for buying me drinks. Off mic, I y'alled and twanged like you wouldn't believe. If you enjoyed the music last night, it's partially because I chose what is considered by many the best bluegrass album out there--at least as a starting point. It's got some of the biggest names from both types of music--country AND western. We're

It's My Birthday and I Can Play Dru Hill If I Want To!
Ross the Boss

Thank you, Quizzers! It was a treat hearing you all sing Happy Birthday to me on this, my 24th and final birthday. Ha! I wish...it was really #32, but who's counting?! Teams this week were up, down, in the middle – at the top, back at the bottom again – all over the place! It was exciting to see where everyone ended up when the dust settled after Round 8. We had some lovely names this week: Godzilla: Democratically Elected Representative of the Monsters took the cake (well, maybe – did you eat some?)! It, oddly enough, rolls off the tongue quite nicely. I wish I Can't Smell That would give me some background on

So Many Impalement Jokes!
JeffreyMetius

So Many Impalement Jokes! This was an amazing quiz.  We had so much fun with all the beer token puns and all the team names that brought back painful memories.  I remember the first time I watched firefly and how devastated I was when they canceled the show.  All those feels came flooding back to me when I binged on the show last Sunday to make sure I was completely ready for this quiz.  Nothing says a good time like 12 hours of firefly all in one day.  But because of that I was able to right an intro that truly hit all the best points of the show and get the rules across.  Linda was a great cohost.  She perked up like a champ and fought through a

Hello all!

I'm Jeff...the really big guy. In my time when I'm not hosting quiz I enjoy playing hockey and taking my jeep up into the mountains to get away from everyone.  While I'm up there I ponder the many parts of life...like why do hotdogs come in packs of 10 and the buns come in packs of 8...and yes you can explode and yes you can implode...but can you just plode?

Just think about it.

It’s WIN-nona not WHY-nona
Stephanie

I don’t want to sound braggadocious or anything but, last night’s quiz was really great. You all have really big brains, the yugest brains. I was really impressed up until you got Tron wrong and thought Destiny’s Child sang No Scrubs. You guys are Busters. Over all we had quite the competitive night with the top three rankings changing almost after each round. Putting the Laughter in Manslaughter really hung in there holding that 1st and 2nd place all night but, ultimately succumbing to 3rd after that illustrious Round 8 when Something Clever came out of nowhere clinching 2nd.

Is The Chess Competition Outside?
Kyrsti Cravetron

Hey Shroomers! It was great to see you guys last night, our quiz was awesome! Beer + Baby Bellies took home first place, and our regular group Like, Jeopardy Smart nabbed second! Round 1 was a breeze, it was all about famous people/things and their nicknames. Round 2 was our music round. Round 3 was a 50/50 round (I loooooove these), I gave you two options for an answer and one started with a “W” and the other started with an “M”. Round 4 was about Arnolds, Palms, and Arnold Palmer. In our visual Round 5 I gave you 8 pictures of AI gone awry, and you had to name what movie they were from. Round 6 was about rocks

A Future Free From Adverbs!
Gar

Take my love. Take my whole land too. I can't help falling afoul of the law. Imagine fat, sweaty Elvis belting that out. If there was any justice in the 'verse, Elvis would've lived to 150 years of age and Firefly would've had 20 seasons of perfect episodes. But alas, as we're all aware, that isn't the case. But our current timeline isn't so bad. That 1 season and a movie inspired one of the greatest nights of quiz ever! Everyone was decked out in their Firefly gear and everyone came prepared for a proper fight. It was a hell of a competition, but in the end, Misbehavin' won the duel and didn't even kill their victims. Congrats!

Shame! Shame!
Nathan

Tonight was another night in our proud tradition of new teams. I find it incredibly satisfying when someone wanders in for a couple of beers and decided to stay for the entire quiz. It’s somewhat satisfying when they decided to stay for only 3 rounds. Last nights newcomers were Team Meat. They wandered in and things worked out pretty well for them.   Our quiz was a hodgepodge of topics, as always. I love when R1 kicks off with current events, but instead we played the nickname game. Everyone did pretty well, except for that Ruth Bader Ginsburg/Beyone confusion. We also got a return to a standard artist/title format in R2, but this time with an acrostic

Hey my Highball/Fantastic Fest bebe’s! Thanks for joining us last night in the midst of the festival madness, I’m proud of your tenacity (or that you had seen all the movies in that round). And hot damn we had celebs playing too! Comedian and friend of the show Doug Benson sat in on the whole thing this year! As well as the fiercely competitive Andre Gower of Monster Squad fame! Neat-o. We covered nicknames in Round One and proved that this is wasn’t written here. Why would we give you such a gimme with that ATX moniker? Round Two we had a Voltron of artists to assemble HOT CHIP. Not a music-mech I would expect, but one I still appreciate. In Round Three, M or

Authenticity Trip
Cody H.

Hello, everyone! Welcome back to you, and welcome back to me. California was wonderful, I saw the city I'm going to live in someday, and I met a magic dog. Great vacation was had by all! Even the video round joined me on my vacation, but we're back. Forever.    Here's what we learned this week: to not take quiz so seriously; who your favorite Supreme Court Justice is; what an acrostic is; how to tell a wombat apart from a moose; what to call your local cloth merchant; which artist's mother is a MILF; what the worst valley in California is; what bones we have in our palms; what not to do with a shaman; what 80's sci-fi movie we should watch; who ruins everything he

You Can't take The Sky From Me....or My Hat
Dustin

Take my love, take my land.....don't take my Jayne hat...no seriously, not for sale. Tonights Big Damn Winning Heroes at last nights Firefly quiz offered to just take my Jayne hat home as their prize. Sorry guys, but if I didn't come home with that thing, I'd likely no longer be married by the time the weekend was out. But that's the Firefly fandom for you. I will confess when it comes to me, I'm an inverted Firefly fan. I remember when the series was going to start airing on TV, and recognized it as something I'd like to see, but then never watched it. Nope, I never saw one episode of Firefly when it originally aired. Which I've no problem blaming on Fox. As we all know that networked totally

Not Just A Round, A Public Service Announcement
Meagan

This week at our lovely Stockyards Brewing, we thought we would share with all of you the most important kind of public service announcement. A PSA that surely affects all of us, each one. Yes, we had a round on movies that will be leaving Netflix in just a few days. Now we can all run home and watch Deep Impact. We can be certain to immerse ourselves in a world where Morgan Freeman is the President and his comforting voice is telling us news too awful for anyone else to speak aloud. After which we can fall farther into the fever dream of bliss that is The Truman Show, remembering what we all saw in Jim Carrey in the first place. We can once again find solace

No Power in the 'Verse
Patrick

What a fantabulous night for a Firefly theme quiz! The weather was perfect. The food was great. The drinks were being slung. It was like a nice family reunion back at our old haunt. Thanks so much to Opal Divine's Penn Field for hosting us again.With only 13 episodes and a one-hour movie to mine for content, the first seven rounds were full of some of the most obscure stuff I can think of in Firefly. Though it wasn't so obscure that the scores were widely differentiated between first and last. IT was a much narrower margin than most theme quizzes.We started things off right by asking about sweet space lovin'. I hadn't ever realized that Mal only slept with one woman

Tonight was like a metaphor, that really happened!
Wolfie

Much like leaves changing in the fall, there were some new changes in quiz tonight at Echo Brewing! There were also a few things to celebrate. Along with my 2 year “quizziversary” with Geeks, Echo Brewing in Erie also celebrated their 2nd anniversary in Erie. With that, we were able to bust out the new answer sheets. We had Vitamin JK return hoping to repeat their victory from last week, but they had some tough competition in Unstable Table (who have won quite a few quizzes in their own right), Aquib Talib Needs Safety Help (who were new to the quiz game. Welcome!), Echo Crew (yup, they once

I have had 3 venues as a quizmaster this past year, with one still being my home of homes (Echo Brewing). I also sub other venues when able and willing. Hoping to have more than one venue I host regularly, cause I LOVE this job!

Random facts and such about me:

- Been told by several people I have met through the years that I have a THICK and NOTICABLE Colorado accent! Yeah, I don't get it either!

- Turned down a gig of driving the band Twopointeight for 2 months on the Flogging Molly tour cause I was waiting to return to a job I was on medical leave from....Yup, I am still kicking myself, cause I didn't go back to that job until about 5 months later. 

- I wish every day that Courtney Cox would get over herself and allow for the Misfits of Science to be released on DVD in the U.S. At least I hear she is part of why it won't be released cause she is embarrassed by it.....I wonder if she has ever seen her show Cougar Town....THAT'S embarrassing!

- Went to a Model & Talent convention and met talent scouts, agents, etc that would make even Simon Cowell cry!!!

- I believe in ghosts cause I have experienced them, even at an adult bookstore I worked at once. 

- Wrote, directed, starred, designed set, did promo work, etc. for a performance art show I did with an amazing cast and crew for a student production in College. It was called "Freak Boy Speaks!"

- I am also an artist! Paintings (Acrylics), drawing, etc. I am also a writer, which kind of shows when I do my blogs. 

- Much rather meet celebs than to get their autographs or pictures with them.

- Worked concert security for a short time in AZ. STILL never got paid for that N'sync concert!!!! 

- Can put myself in the game of 6 six degrees of Kevin Bacon. 

- Finished up my final season as mascot for the 2010 WFTDA Champions, the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls. Will miss being Wolfie the wolf, but will continue watching roller derby!

- Worked on a cruise ship, where I got to meet people from all over the world, and met my wife (she was a fellow crew member, not a passenger cause that is against the rules!).

- Followed the Vans Warped tour for 2 weeks in 2004.....One hell of an adventure.

- Rode on an airplane at 1 a.m. from Phoenix, AZ to Dallas TX with a bunch of Wrestlers from "WWE", back in 2003. Included the Undertaker, Edge, Matt Hardy, Billy "the Ass man" Gunn, Eddie Gurerro, and many more.

- Once worked at the post office on my college campus. Ask me why one WOULD and COULD go mad from working at such a place. 

- I only like bacon or coleslaw when in the mood.

- Once performed with a group from Second City back in College with fellow Improv group members at the school. 

- Worked at Ed Debevic's in AZ. If you don't know, then google it or ask Jeeves (he is still around, isn't he?).

- Much rather be at a coffee shop with a pen or pencil and a journal or drawing pad than a laptop.....which I use as a Quiz Master! We get along......for now. 

-Aside from my mascot alter ego, I have another alter ego when I perform on stage with a band. His name is Elder Grimlee. He was once a logo for AZ band, the Elders UK, but now searches for his own band. But the alter egos don't stop there.....several more exist. 

- I was born 1 month late!!!! Remember, this was back in 1976! So a C-section was not an option. Plus, can you blame a guy.....FREE room and board!!!

- Mystery Science Theater 3000 is one of my ALL time favorite shows and when I am stressed, sad, or bummed, I just put on one of my MST3K DVDs and all is right with the world and no one dies! I also believe that GWD should do a MST3K themed quiz!

- I don't care for Netflix due to some issues with their service. BRING BACK MY BLOCKBUSTER VIDEO!!!!!!

- Find it funny that when I was about 19 years old, I hoped to have a full tattoo body suit by the age of 30. I am 39 and have 8. I am such a slacker.

- My Mom can beat up your Mom, Dad, buddies you street fight with and ALMOST threw down with the late Fabulous Mullah! I am her baby boy, so watch it, unless you mention sympathy for my being born late then you have won her over. 

- Made a collapsible dance cage with my brother for a roller derby girl from the league I mascot(ed) for (she DJed with another DJ and they wanted a dance cage).....still got the pictures! No clue what happened to it, hoping someone is go-go dancing their heart out in it!

It's Alive!
Ben

So last week concluded with my computer deciding it was going to crash and then not boot up again, and with me in a less than stellar mood because of it. Well tonight, I’m happy to say I both the functional state of my computing device and my mood are both much improved. It turns out that somehow my hardware decided it would be a good idea to turn itself into gravy which, in turn, resulted in the rest of the device turning into an overly large and unwieldy paper weight. As I like say, it bricked. Fortunately though, that Surface was a Christmas present, and more importantly even than that, it was a present from my grandparents.
