TheBeastMother

 Hello Hippopotumuses. Thanks for braving the burning heat of the hot hot sun and coming out to our own oasis, Marg's taco bistro. We enjoyed the $5 house margaritas and some delightful company. Speaking of good company, have you guys heard of this Full House Reboot that Netflix is putting together? I bet you have, because if you're anything near the age I am, all your facebook acquaintances are being like ZOMG guys, do you remember this?!? Looks at these sassy girls, and was Uncle Jesse hot or what?!? Then you tag people who are probably your sisters. I mean, don't get me wrong, I watched this show as much as anyone else. There was kind of a whole blended family genre of shows

As a consummate quizzer myself, it's great to finally be in charge. For once.

I've lived in Denver almost my whole life and spend most of my days chasing my toddler. I'm really interested in Iceland right now. I mean honestly, it looks like a magical mystery land. Don't you want to go? I do. I am a cat person, but I actually really like dogs too. My favorite flavor of ice cream is that pink peppermint kind that's only available at Christmas. 

Any questions? No? Then let's begin.

It was another fantastic night at the Bohemian Bull, where 5 highly competitive groups of geeks (gaggles of geeks?) duked it out to win the top prizes and won plenty of free beer along the way. Our heroic teams were strong in name, numbers, and intensity, coming out of the gate with a round about San Francisco. Turns out yo’ momma couldn’t have lived in San Fran way back when because it’s true they had a law that banned ugly people from showing their faces! Boom. Shlong Island Iced Teas knew that and a lot of other things, as well as having an excellent name. But ultimately all their flashy naming prowess could not protect them from

Looking For . . . My Panties
CarlyLewandowski

Fun times and sad times at Rock and Run last night, as it was THIS quizmaster's swan song. I'm gonna miss you jokesters! But we went out with a bang and had a great night of quizzzzzzzing. I pumped my 80s jamzz for the last time for y'all. I asked my questions and ate a grilled caesar salad and some delicious delicious s'mores dip. Yup. That's what I did.   We learned about San Francisco, or exercised our San Francisco muscles, or whatever. Are you good at Sodoku? Judging from Round 3  . . . maaaayyybeee. And you only maybe play board games. But a few of you play lots of board games and kill it at sodoku--my kinda people. The rest was pretty quiztastc. General quizziness.

Air On A G-String
Handsome Lou

Round 3: Beethoven, Bach, or Mozart? I’m not much of a classical music follower but I have definitely heard of these three famous composers. I didn’t know however, the crazy lives they lived. For instance, did you know that Bach fathered 20 kids? I mean, chill. His buddy Mozart wrote a nice little ditty called “Like Me In the Ass.” I would love to know the meaning behind that title…or maybe I wouldn’t. We had a great game on Sunday at the Bronx Alehouse with tons of teams who came out to play. We had a lot of new teams like Twinning and Team Markisa. Everyone seemed to have a great time.

Remember To Check For Prostrate Cancer
JonGabso

In a humble lil’ meeting of 4 very feisty and competitive quiz teams tonight at John Harvard’s, it yet again was a superclose slugfest with the results of the final round essentially deciding the whole thing. Frequent champs Krystle & Caress were reduced to a duo tonight and were slightly in a position of having to come back from behind. I don’t want to assume they’d have destroyed this one had they brought their full slate of 4 or 5 geniuses, but when they’re this solid with just 2 that’s hard to imagine.   Krystle hopped into a small lead 2 rounds in, which was promptly erased in round 3 by the

 People are all like yo, "there's a quiz, son?"  And I'm all like, "yeah, son."  So I put on my backwards hat and I'm all like "let's do this."

I uncork a bottle of Cristal and spray it all over my electronics but nothing gets damaged. Everbody is aware that I rule. I get out my t-shirt cannon and fire it right in a lady's face at point blank range but she doesn't get hurt and enjoys getting some free stuff that says "Corona" on it. You

How Do You Pronounce That Again?
Master Moose

There were some pretty amusing answers tonight that left me scratching my head. In round 1 apparently "Princess" ratified it's (her?) charter in San Francisco in 1945 and a "Pelican" was apparently one of the available weapons in Clue! (It was the Princess in San Francisco with a Pelican!) Also, both teams wrote "Ghirardelli Chocolate" for the answer for question 7 (instead of "sourdough"). I could see more than 1 team writing "chocolate", but how did they end up being so specific? Now you might be thinking that one team overheard the other, but not only were they not close enough for that to be a real possibility, but there was an exceptionally noisy table of non-players between them.

Shakira loves your big butt
Quizmaster Zero: Scoobses Edition

To be honest with all of you, I really enjoy it when something vaguely spectacular happens at ze quiz, because at that point the blog pretty much writes itself.  Now, usually I'll relay a few anecdotes, or some other such nonsense, but today I'm jumping right in with both feet.  There was a fucking three-way tie for first place!  It was fecking awesome! So, although it's typically poor form to mention as much, we did have a couple of teams leave before the end of quiz; their scores weren't so good.  However, the reason I mention this is because of the fact that they played.  I guarantee they had no intention of such things when they ventured

Sorry, Frivolous Torts, But Someone On Your Team Has Really Bad Handwriting
Quizmistrix Lalenya

It happens almost every week, but no matter the Scorekeeper, no matter the Quizmaster, they just keep getting entered into the Official Spreadsheet as Frivolous Tarts. And really, isn't that a better name? I know I identify with it more easily. I've never sued anyone, much less just for the heck of it. But have I been a Frivolous Tart? Uh, yeah, have you met me? This week's quiz was graced with not only 15 teams, the super awesome Chris Linn (where the hell has he been?), and the oxford comma, but also the triumphant return of Period Sex!!! Yes, we had Beck and Heinrich in the house, joining William Nye the History Guy, Gary, Gavin, and some dude from New York. For those of you that

I had a great time hosting, and I hope you all had a good time being quizzed. Tonight, we learned that trivia and pool can peacefully co-exist, that no one has ever seen the movie The Adventures of Tin Tin, and that either no one in Chandler thinks that 9/11 was an inside job, or there are Truthers but they're too polite to say anything about it.Shout out to The Grimaces for remaining in character for their team photo, and to Team Chozen for the wonderful Kermit the Frog doodles

How I Spent My Summer Vacation
The Duke of Allston

Day 1   Remember in "Dumb and Dumber" when they're driving through the Plains, thinking that they were supposed to be in Colorado, and they say "that John Denver was full of it, man?" I had the same thought on the first day of my annual California adventure. Albert Hammond enjoyed a hit in 1972 with "It Never Rains in Southern California." Yet, it started coming down around 4 PM on Sunday afternoon, and persisted long enough to delay the Red Sox/Angels game scheduled for 5 PM to the next day.   It was not raining during the day, so I spent the afternoon at the best fair I've seen (and I'm something of a connoisseur of fairs), the OC Fair in Costa

I grew up in Burlington, VT, and moved here on a whim in 2003.  Became the quiz presenter at White Horse Tavern in 2005, where I worked for 7 years for another quiz company. Then Geeks Who Drink came a-callin'.  I first rejected their overtures, but joined the family when they offered to pay me in hair gel.

When I'm not hosting your quiz or hitting on you, I enjoy horse racing, kayaking,and baseball.  I once won $33,000 on a $48 horse ticket.  I also participated in the 2012 and 2014 Horse Player World Series, and in the 2014 National Handicapping Championship, both elite handicapping tournaments held annually in Las Vegas.

I was on "Judge Mathis" in 2004, and also appeared locally on the Red Sox trivia game show "The Batters' Box" in 2009.  Yet, I still get recognized for appearing for ten seconds on a casting special for "Beauty and the Geek" in 2005.  Seriously, it's aired on television maybe twice, and people recognize it.  It's stupendous.

Beautiful, swag-filled night at The Forum Puyallup!  We had seven hardcore teams battling for the win.  And it was a good fight!   Round one tested our San Francisco knowledge.  But it was team Almost Strangers who scored a perfect 8. So the Golden Gate Bridge is International Orange?!?   Audio round two saw some big scores and some jokers used.  It was team I Wanted to be Lynn Swan who jumped ahead with a whopping 22 points!  Favorite song of the round? Chicago's You're the Inspiration.  Check it out... it's dreamy!   Round three required some brain work and some power of deduction.

If you think you can’t have a rip-roaring time at quiz with only two teams, you are very, very wrong.

Ninth Place Is The New First
Chloe

It might not be November but there were plenty of reasons to give thanks at this Monday’s Twisted Pine quiz:   - We had a special raffle tonight. The prize? TRUMP, THE GAME. Because, when you find a Donald Trump board game at the thrift store you have no choice but to buy it and bring it to quiz. Obviously.   - In a glorious twist of fate (or maybe a show of brilliantly executed mediocrity) Maybe 9th Place? came in…ninth. Pure coincidence or not, we were all pretty f*ckin’ stoked about that one.   - It was a bittersweet night for the team members on Take A Little Piece of My Jesus—one
