Some protips for Geek Bowl
JWarr

I'm not Ben. I'm not even white Ben. But I am a lot of fun.  And I think you had a lot of fun. We gave some fucks, we won some prizes, we certainly guessed at somethings we didn't even know were things.  And we sharpened our wits for the Geek Bowl which is next week! A few of you are going and as a five-time scoring captain, I have some advice for you. Be right. As right as right can be.  Little things cost you, it's not "I Feel Like a Woman", it's "Man, I Feel Like a Woman".  One of those answers is more complete and right.  One is wrong. Don't include information that isn't in the answer.  The song from Lady Gaga is "Do What You Want", not "Do

Next Week: "Poison" and If "The Crew" Really Did Do That
Troy D.

Oh, Bell Biv DeVoe, and the lyrical genius that is the song "Do Me!". I want to say that in the early 90's, you could totally get away with a song that goes "You can do me in the morning / you can do me in the night", but... even then, no, you couldn't. And this song has even more bizarre quirks than that, with lyrics like "I need a body bag", "the time was 6:00 on the Swatch watch", and "We're gonna train up in here all the way baby"... but the most important quirk is the title itself: "Do Me!" I mean, a song titled "Do Me" wouldn't do much, but boy, you add that exclamation point, and now you have a good time. Anyway, on to quiz, and ya know, The Toldeo Walleys had such a

Everyone Had Their Game Faces On!
Bersonality

Hey there, Pub Quiz Players! We had what felt to me like an unusually somber pub quiz last night at Sporting Life Bar. I do hope everyone had a good time, no matter the circumstances. I could play more songs by The Who and Queen. That usually can get people a bit more pumped up. It was nice to see some new faces along with our regular players. It is always open for anyone to play, so having first-timers is a nice add to our mix. Also – and I don’t know if this needs to be said again – please, if you are going to use your phone, step away from the table. It is part of the rules I go through every week and having to remind people multiple times makes

Power Of Equality
QM Kriegs

  Pour salt over your shoulder before reading...also take 6 shots of tequilla   Is fairness a swinging pendulum or a measuring stick in the mud? If one who has been unduly fraught upon later is able to suppress their oppressor, does that make things equal? Or does the punishment have to be cold and calculated, while the downtrodden individual who was initially harmed does not receive any retribution.   In the first scenario, the cycle of distress will go on in perpetuity. With punishment being inflicted back and forth amongst the parties and even sometimes through generations. The second scenario would seem more apt at first. However,

Don't tell me what to do!Our special format round was a speed round on Scorses Best Picture nominees--both Oscar and Golden Globe. Tis was rough.

Crashing
DJ ROB ROB

This week was a weird week. If you keep up with other quizzes in town, I hosted 4 quizzes in a row earlier this week, starting with this quiz last Saturday at The Ute and Yeti. Normally I get quiz fatigue after just two in a row, but I managed to get through it and actually had a whole lot of fun in the process. However, this pretty much sapped me of energy the rest of the week. By the time I was done with work, I didn't want to exercise or go out, I just stayed at home. If you know me personally, this is not normal. Maybe it was quiz fatigue. Maybe it was the toothache I've had for a few days. But I definitely stayed home and watched Stranger Things (for the 2nd time), Crashing,

  One, two, three! Hey ya! Hey ya! Devon back at Left Coast, this time on an about-to-be-rainy Saturday evening in San Clemente. We had 6 teams this evening, MOST WERE NEW TEAMS, here to show they’re smart and that they love good beer! Before the night even began we had a team or two getting down to my awesome GWD playlist. They kicked off the night with a sweet mini-dance off. That really set the tone for this lively group. Some teams kept the party going all night by dancing to the sweet jams from Round 2. This particular team member would also shout her support for other teams as I went through each scoring round. Girl, YOU ARE

February is almost over.  Geek Bowl XI is right around the corner.  And it was over 80 degrees in Houston this week.  Climate change is REAL, no matter what anyone else says or deletes!  Your quiz results are also real, and they go something like this. Eight teams made the pilgrimage to Darwin's Pub, and we discussed the most important topics of the day: gingers, politicians, entertainers, fake doctors, real drama, and one-night plots. Our first place winner was Umberto Ecco the Dolphin; they scored 66 points.  Our second place team was simply called No.  That's it.  They scored 65 points. Next week,

Can We Change The Channel To Literally Anything Else?
Renerdssance Man

Just a quick observation: it has happened multiple times at multiple venues that I have arrived, set up, and begun quiz, and then noticed that there was—of all things—Christian broadcasting on one of the TVs. I have no idea how this becomes the case. Surely someone didn’t intentionally tune it to that at some point during the day. And what channel starts as one thing during the day and then *becomes* religious in prime time? Makes no sense to me whatsoever. Anyway, quiz happened regardless, and the Famous Hussies of History took home the top prize by a wide margin, as they are wont to do. Props though to Disco Superfly,

If I'm being completely honest, y'all made me feel pretty lonely last week. I wondered if it was something I had said, or maybe it "wasn't me, it was you". Last Call Blues hung in there with me, though, and now the rest of you have returned!!! I was so happy to see your faces. And make fun of them.   Last Call Blues and Nuggets 15: Jeremy Jordan's Rage Face are becoming formidable rivals. We're having mid-quiz lead changes and everything! There was even some smack talk (courtesy of Nugget, of course) and big cheering when the tables finally turned for the Nuggets. I love these neck and neck battles, y'all.    The

Hey there Quizters, Courtney checking in from Homer, Alaska. This recent Thursday at Alice’s Champagne Palace was a fun one ya’ll, first game to end in a tie breaker. Everyone was on their A game and we had 10 participating teams, which is a good turnout for our little town. My apologies to everyone, I must have been hard to listen to because I was getting sick and sounded like a frog. I slowly lost my voice throughout the night.

WHEW, WHAT A WEEK. I was in Vegas from Monday afternoon until Thursday afternoon, flew back from the nice, warm desert and landed in... the frigid, disgusting weather Denver was offering. OH, COLORADO. Then, after my 8 hours of sleep across 3 days, we had quiz! Whee! And a fun quiz it was, as always. Y'all quizzers duked it out, and answered questions about Sweden, #1 hits from February 23 of past years, random knowledge, and OMG A ROUND ABOUT OBOES! What a country.
