Always question Larry (Also there is a quiz on Labor Day)
TJMcDonald

Last night had a new twist on the usual audio round at GWD. Instead of hearing someone sing, or hearing someone sing like Chewbacca, the teams just heard instrumental solos from which they tried to guess the song. One of the instrumentals was from Gin Blossoms. Btw, special props to the quiz writers at GWD for not forcing me to listen to the Gin Blossoms actually sing.   Things got strange when one of the teams somehow thought the Gin Blossoms instrumental was from the song Humpty Dance No, I'm not going to link to the Gin Blossoms song for comparison purposes. Did you not read my last paragraph

Whatever Happened to Toni Braxton?
Larry

So a quiz happened at Wyman’s No. 5 last night. I had a good time hanging with everyone. You all quizzed like champs. Several teams killed round 2! I loved that so many of you thought Toni Braxton was TLC. Whatever happened to Toni Braxton? She un-broke my heart and then left. That’s kind of a bitch move on her part. Thanks, Toni! Belly Option 32 pulled off the third place spot. They left with a $10 tab for next week. Well done. Couples Skate Only held on to the second place spot. They left with a $15 tab for next week. The skating couple refused to take a picture, so their lovely teammate took a super awesome

Larry jumped in a car and made the twenty-two hour, 1,456 mile trek across the United States with his dog and bikes in 2014 to the incredibly awesome state of Colorado. Larry teaches middle school by day and quizzes on the minds of the unwilling, and sometimes willing, folk by night. Enter the mind of Larry and you will discover totally pointless neurotic thoughts and arguments with himself that are usually centered around bikes, the fact that clowns and mimes are the most vile and terrifying things on this planet, dead American Gothic authors, fireworks and the cosmos.

Go Stros!

So, a bunch of my friends went to see The Astros kick butt last night, and I was stuck hosting a quiz. I'm not complaining. I love hosting quizzes, and as you all know, Cedar Creek is my home. But I would like to see the Astros one more time before the end of the season, and time is running out. But anyway, We had us a quiz last night and, as usual, it was a hoot. I even got to share in the fun with a newbie, who you all graciously accepted into the fold. He'll be off at his own venue soon... sniff They grow up so fast! But anyway, he was awesome, you were awesome, the staff was awesome. It was just an all around great night. So, here's what the rounds
[ ...more... ]

I started quizzing about 2 years ago when my best friend got me involved on his quiz team. Since then I have rarely missed a quiz at our regular venue on Monday Nights.

Over the years people have come and gone, at one point we had a regular team of 5, that kicked a lot of ass and took a lot of names. We even competed in Geek Bowl 2013 under the name How I Met Your Mothra.

People have come and gone since then, but at the very least, 3 of our team remained quizzing every Monday. After Geek Bowl, the bestie got hired as a quizmaster, so I decided to do the same the next time auditions rolled around.

So here I am, Quizmaster Paddycake. I started at Molly Malone's in Spring, and now I shall be taking over Cedar Creek on Monday nights as well. Big shoes to fill there, but I feel confident it'll all be awesome!

See you at quiz!

Can I participate in the quiz while I make selections in my Fantasy Football Draft?
Woody

One member of Team "Will the Canadian Wall keep the White Walkers out?” so inquired of me before the nights festivities, and my response; let’s ask the other teams if they mind.  So we put it to a vote, can he sit there with his laptop open and participate in the quiz… all the other teams voted in favor so long as the screen is visible to everyone else, and it stay on his draft page, to which he complied!  After looking at his draft selections… it’s going to be a long season for him!

Looks Like We Made It Somebody cue the Barry Manilow, it officially looks like we made it to the end of another school summer, which means no more 8:30pm Monday dinners for 12 year olds at Bull Feeneys. We've just got to tolerate the straggling tourists for another few weeks and we're officially in the clear, left alone in our city for another 8 months. You've all done a wonderful job. We'll celebrate officially next week when we quiz on Labor Day, the traditional end of the season. Sports! They are a thing some people know about. Like pretty much everything else. We've been sitting on a dedicated sports round for a little while now, and someone had mentioned it to me

4 teams came out to Gypsy Parlor last night for some GWD action! Round 1 started the night off with more gruesome versions of plot points in children’s fairy tales. Teams did well on this round! Round 2 featured a music round where solos followed the vocal melody. This was the toughest round of the night. Round 3 was a 50/50 round on less being better than more. Teams did well on this round! At the end of 3 rounds The Besties and Roosters were fighting over first followed by Camp Tiger Claw in third! Round 4 was a round on Dianas, roses, and royalty. Teams did alright on this round.

In Polite Society, People Don’t Usually Eat Their Grandmas

We had a round on weird fairy tales. If you think about it, most fairy tales are weird. Making out with a lady in a coma, little people forcing a woman to do their laundry, a little girl eating her grandma….. It’s the stuff of nightmares. It also sounds like something I watched on the ultimate murder porn TV channel, the Investigation Discovery Network. Have you watched it? No? You should. Below are the following REAL, TOTALLY REAL shows they play;   Nightmare Next Door (its about neighbors who kill their neighbors)

Five teams of gorgeousness gathered for a fine-ass fracas last night, and it was marvelous! In a winding fray with unexpected twists and triumphs, our particularly enthusiastic competitors calculated, hypothesized, and surmised their way through eight challenging rounds. (Except Round 5, which was apparently really, really easy for absolutely everyone.) Seven challenging rounds! I was pleased to see (but only barely, in the dim light) the return of The Banana Slugs Pt. 2 this week, and I promise that I will recognize everyone next week when, ahem, I am absolutely certain that they will use their joker very, very thoughtfully.    In

Greetings, law-abiding citizens! Last night’s PubQuiz was filled with delightful fun! We laughed, we cried, but we mostly answered questions. For example, in Round 3: Less Is More I asked... Which city has a lower violent crime rate in 2014, according to Forbes: Detroit or Atlanta?  The answer was Atlanta, but as a proud Detroiter, I told everyone at the bar to control their rage and try to do better this coming year.  For question 8 in this round, I asked…

 What a lovely night we had! With a visit by a returning Quiz Master of days past! Kirsten (now dubbed Cheesecake) was a QM way back in 2011 to 2012 and has now rejoined our ranks after moving to Albuquerque. Welcome Kirsten! It's so nice to have another local lady on board the Geeks Who Drink ship. I left most of the heavy quiz lifting up to her as this was her re-training refresher course in QM badassery. Thanks for letting her get her nerves out of the way and brush up on her MC skillz. We had some great rounds as per usual. The visual round was especially visceral to me as it reminded me of two instances of hurting myself with sharp instruments. Weirdly enough, both of these occurrences happened

Television’s Coda: End Credit Songs
RESII

As August slips into September, teams are still getting in their last shots at the Rumble in the Pub. Drunkelstiltzken held on to the top spot almost all night long, but two teams would tie for second. Mothra Hoople and Refrigerator Desserts both had 72 points but a quick overtime gave the silver to Mothra. Haunted Car, or Haunted Street? placed fourth.   A good end title song can really tie a show together. Round seven knew this, featuring the cackling of Kelsey Grammer at the end of Frasier to the forlorn theme to The Incredible Hulk. My favourite end theme belongs to Friday Night

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.

The True Story of...
Joey Joe Joe Jr. Shabadoo

Fairy tales.  We all know ‘em.  We all love ‘em (mostly). And we all did a great job knowing what fairy tale I was talking about in Round One.  Except Huddle.  They didn’t do so hot.   But what I want to ask bring up is the bunch of books that came out a bunch of years ago where the authors took famous stories and re-wrote them from the perspective of the villain.  They were awesome. My favorite one was the the Wolf’s version of Three Little Pigs.

One of my pencils was destroyed, struck down in its prime. Poor thing barely stood a chance against the gorilla-sized strength of whoever tore it apart. I had to hide the wreckage from the other pencils so they wouldn't see such horror.  Anyway, we had a quiz too. The Rumble in the Pub participants The Guesstapo sent a representative. Hard to win with just one person but he was there to remind us all of the tenuous nature of victory. Much like the tenuous nature of intact pencils.    Round 1, on oft-forgotten parts of famous fairytales brought a lot of gasps. Who knew Rumplestiltskin committed suicide by self-amputation?

So Tactical Nuclear Penguin.... why is that not in my mouth yet? And yes, it is indeed a beer. I've decided I am going to do some research on this expertly named beverage. I'm also going to live blog my thoughts as I research. Ready, go. The first thing I'd like to point out is that when I typed "Tactical Nu" into the Google search bar, the first suggestion was indeed Tactical Nuclear Penguin. This means one of two things - people super like it and search for it often OR Google has reached a whole new level of creep. For my own mental health, I'm going to go with the former. OH. This isn't just any beer. This beer claimed to be the strongest in the world in

Colleen is a Rochester native with a heart of gold. Icy, icy gold. You can find her at Wall Street every Tuesday night and occasionally on a stage somewhere else in Rochester. Doing theater. Not stripping. She would be the most awkward of strippers. Think Danny Devito on Friends and then quadruple the awkward. Got the mental image? Good. She also plays Ultimate Frisbee and if you are vewy,vewy quiet you can catch her galavanting around RIT campus.

Let Dad Tell You A Story
Quizmaster Mike

When I was a kid, my parents, as many of yours likely did, told me childrens stories and fairy tales. I had two sisters so I pretty much saw every single Disney movie, but I learned all the other stories and such over time. But when I was in high school, we did a unit on real fairy tales and how they’ve changed over time. Imagine the horror on the look of your classmate’s face when she realizes that everything she knew about Cinderella was a lie. She was beaten and berated by her evil step-sisters. There were no singing mice or pumpkin carriages. Just a story of a young woman so overwhelmed by the madness in her life that she gets a chance,

Mike moved down to New Orleans 3 days before Hurricane Katrina hit. Yikes. After spending the next 5 years down there, he packed up his wagon trained and headed West, to the great unknown. There, he met Kent and Eric of the Geeks crew, and he started hosting a quiz in Santa Fe. After denying the seductive as long as he could, Mike returned to his first love, the city of New Orleans. There, he hosts a weekly quiz and gets all the girls.

Mike spent much of his childhood on a farm on the East Coast. He quickly fled the cows, the cold, and the close-by relatives breathing down his neck. He has been known to wander the wasteland alone, picking at the shells of supply trains.

Mike likes warm rain, Planet Earth, any food stuffed with another food, Bugs Bunny cartoons, bacon, Risk, the zombie apocalypse and exclamation points! He hates J-Lo movies, Dr. Phil, small dogs, scented candles, coconut candies, and girls that take a million pictures of themselves.
