Listening to Nudity is Almost as Fun as Watching it
Bingo Jones

A few regulars and a new crew kept the quiz lively last night. Starting off with a round called “Duh” is always a good omen for those new to pub quizzing and it was close scores all night until the final rounds. Everybody saved their Jokers but I Did It For The Wookie came in 1st place and first drunk winning quite a few of the bonus rounds, even giving one away to the team playing next to them, well played Travis and Hannah. Listening to scenes from movies that contained nudity is apparently almost as fun as watching them, though it took the lovely ladies from Spicy Creoles a minute to realize they weren’t

Long Quiz/Short Blog
Professor Truman

If this blog seems a little short and not excellent as it usually is, you’re right.  Professor Truman got himself a new job and training is going on this week.  That’s a 50 hours of training in one week.  I’m used to working 15-20 hours a week.  Once training is over, it will get back to normal.  But for now, here’s a short and to the point blog.  Fun Facts:   We had some jerk-face-jerks last night.  They weren’t quizzing.  They kept on being loud on purpose during the quiz.  They also insulted our quizzer with some pretty crass stuff as they were finally leaving…during the last question of the quiz.

Wherein Team AJ chats about Walls
Team AJ

Jeremy: Wow, the clouds to the East look amazing. Must be a nice sunset to the side of the house I can't see. Angela: Walls. They get in the way all the time. Jeremy: I like being sheltered though, so that's nice. Angela: Yes, yes. I'll take walls any day over no walls. Jeremy: Deadpool this weekend! And The Walking Dead! Whaaaat! Angela: I love that we had Team Maverick and Team Goose, which were a group of friends that had to split up into two teams to adhere to the "no more than 6 people rule". And that at the end of the night after a friendly rivalry between them, and one team being ahead of the other for most of

Last Mango In Paris @ THE MAINLINE!!!
Andizzle fo' Shizzle

Parodies and wordplay are my favorite things. Where else can you combine such American institutions as Portlandia and Armageddon? Any time you can create puns based on pop culture, you can count me in, especially when it has to do with sketch comedy, AKA televisions greatest pun factories.   Things we learned this week: - Nobody knows who the Bay City Rollers are. - DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince are overdue for a new album. - Red Rocks is always the best choice for music venues. - Never leave your wallet in your butt pocket.   --------------------

Why yes, Andizzle fo' Shizzle is in fact my legit, legal name (as soon as I change it). Fo' rizzle, bizzle. I've hosted over 700 quizzes since 2008 and have written around 1,000 of our rounds. I'm also a vegetarian, a Jew, and a god damned pretty, pretty princess.

I kick ass and sometimes take names where appropriate; Quizmaster extraordinaire and all around nerd, I host the weekly quiz with both fury and pomp. If you ever find youself in need of a good beating in Halo, tetherball, or a good ole' fashioned PBR chugoff, feel free to let me know.

You can learn a little more about my messed up brain over at my Meet Your Quizmaster interview.

I also write beer reviews and articles @ www.PorchDrinking.com

And if you so desire, I can also be found on The Facebooks or on The Twitters, Xbox Live, Steam, League of Legends, Battle.net, and your Mom's house.

The 5-Second Rule Does Not Apply
Lady Busty

While researching blog ideas (one can never have too many), I came across one called, "Your Worst DIY Disasters," followed by a picture of burnt bread. It instantly brought to mind the very first time I tried baking. I was working at a school, with 4th-6th graders. It was the end of the year, and my birthday was coming up. I wanted to surprise the kids with my favorite treat on my birthday: Millionaire's Shortbread. Imagine shortbread topped with a layer of caramel and another layer of chocolate. OMG SO GOOD. I asked my mom for her recipe and got all my ingredients. I read and reread the recipe. I thought I was prepared. First sign I was not prepared: the chocolate did not

I was born in Scotland to American parents. I spent most of my youth moving around the world as a Navy brat (think: every two years), spending the most time in the UK. Don't let this Midwestern accent fool you. I'm a Brit. Try as I might, I will pronounce and spell things the British way (it is English, after all) and can have a dry, naughty sense of humour. I love puns to no end. Though I am homesick for the Isles, I have adopted Tucson as my home. I've done enough moving for anyone.

What else? I am a Gemini, so there is (at least) one other side to me and I am incredibly indecisive. If there is ever a decision to be made, please, make it for me. I'll be forever in your debt.

I am a Lady, in that I own land in Scotland: two parcels .

I am honest, though I would never say, to any fault. Try me. I'll answer pretty much any question.

I have two degress in Theatre and run the library at a middle school.

I live with my husband, our ten rabbits, nineteen chickens, nine ducks, five turkeys, six quail, one goose, four cats, two dogs, three mice, two goats, and two turtles.

It Really Makes You Think
King Of The South

I've spoken before about how one of the most entertaining things about being a QuizMaster are the answers. A lot of you regular quizzers know I often get a kick out of the most hilarious incorrect answers. And most of those are answered by you on purpose. However, there are those few answers when the truth gets a little hazy. Answering Thirty Dark Zero on a round about movies with nude scenes is hilarious at first glance. But going back and listening to the clip, I wonder if this was actually a serious answer. The truth is, we'll never know. But it really is something to think about. One thing I do know that is true...you don't have to lie down for it to be called

Hey yo. I'm RJ. The Urge. R-Jizzle. I'm a transplanted Austinite, originally hailing from Clarksville, Tennessee. I was educated at a school where it's perfectly acceptable to show your Peay-ness. I'm your typical sports fan. (Soccer being my sport of choice.) Cereal is my favorite food, simply because you can eat it at any time of the day. And it makes milk totally flavorful and drinkable.

I'm a total nut for pop culture...movies, music, books. I try to take as much of it in as possible, regardless of how it eats into my daily responsibilities. I'm still a video game nerd, although there isn't a lot of time for it nowadays. I'm a shameless fan of reality television and I once made it through the first two cuts of casting for The Real World. But, alas, I wasn't emotionally challenged enough to make it all of the way.

Professional wrestling is still real to me.

The Joker Is No Joke
Tim

Hey gang. First off, I want to thank you for braving the cold temperature and poisonous air here in Ogden to join me this week. It is seriously terrible out there. Tonight we opened with a 'Duh' round which proved to be much trickier than usual. Round two had you guessing between solo artists and their groups, and you all did pretty well, but few of you felt strongly enough to double your scores. Our visual round was tricky as well, but we saw some nice big scores on our sixteen point round six. You guys showed an impressive amount of sketch comedy knowledge. Well done. We've all played this game enough to know the joker is a fickle bitch, especially on nights when we have

Hey gang,

I have been a quizmaster since all the way back in early 2014. I am a pop culture sponge and have a head full of useless knowledge, so I figured I would put it to work in the best way possible: barking trivia questions at drunkards. When I am not hanging out in bars trying to make people feel stupid, I am a humble public servant in the employ of the United States Government.

I am a worldly gentleman of dignity and refinement, and a student of the human condition. That is a nice way of saying I am a snarky asshole who judges people while doing nothing meaningful with his life. I am a sci-fi nerd, a fantasy nerd, a science nerd and a history nerd (a useless college major, I have discovered to my dismay). 

Regardless, I am happy to be part of the Geeks family and look forward to quizzing in all of your faces!

By The Numbers
Oliver

Whether you are a news junkie or not, avoiding getting swept up in this election year is going to be hard. It seems as though this year’s theme is all about the “establishment” and taking down the Super-Pacs. As usual, the Thursday night Quiz at Stella’s Lounge mirrors real life. In our case, the super-pacs, and perhaps the brains behind this entire conspiracy, have been boiled down to two teams. Two, very powerful and very rich (in terms of gift cards and free bonus round question beer) teams now control the top 1%. The top 1% of what, you may ask? I couldn’t tell ya, I’m just a meager host. The two teams have been identified. Oh, and did I mention

Short blog but sweet night
Bill

Hey fellow Derry quizzers! I hope you had as much fun as I did on Thursday night at the Hilltop spot. We had some new teams and some old faces, so it was fun to see the mix of groups. “Those guys” just were going to stay for the first rounds but played all evening. “Calling all Jan Michael Vincents” were a really fun new crew that I really hope sticks around. We even had one guy come in for one round, “Patriots” came in last place, which even saying that phrase is sacrilege in these parts.   The game was pretty close up until round 6, where “The Hour of our orbs” Got a perfect round AND jokered it AND it was a 16 point round.

We All Die Young
El Jefe

DJ Jazzy Jeff was back at the New Heights Grill tonight, dishing out the questions and spinning the 90’s pop tunes. The combination has proven irresistible, as our group of regulars has grown to nearly 10 teams! Let’s keep it going! Rounds 1-3 covered obvious answers, solo artists and their bands, and pop culture geography. Our quizzers proved adept at geography with four teams posting perfect scores including Pacland All Stars, Meowsers, Boof and The Episode of Who’s the Boss Where Tony Sees Angela Naked in the Shower. Say that five times fast… Or just once. That’s all I did!   Rounds 4-6

Once Upon A Time....
Mandrew

Another day has come and gone.  People have gone to work in traffic, returned home in traffic, and cursed at random other people in traffic.  Yet we all know that nothing will ever be able to compare to that first gulp of a refreshing alcoholic drink at the local watering hole.  Half a beer in… nay, 2 beers later, you ask yourself, “Well, WTF do I do now?”  I’ll let you in on a little secret that thousands of humans in this nation are privy to…. Pub Quiz.  It’s a gathering of intelligent people (sometimes called geeks) who imbibe (drink) alcoholic beverages just like you!  They then partake in a wonderful happenstance known

You Want In?
Elephant Gangsta Tooth

Greetings quizzers!  I have a feeling that some of you were surprised that your big ol' bear of a quizmaster was missing this week.  Funny story that I will tell you again. Big ol' Jeffrey walked into the oral surgeon for a consultation on a tooth.  A CONSULTATION.  As they are chit chatting, conveniently enough a woman walks in for her appointment, coughing up a storm or something.  So the surgeon tells her to shove it and

My name is Alison (aka Elephant Gangster Tooth) and I come from the far land of New Mexico and moved to Denver in 2013. I geek out when it comes to video games and fitness, which contradict each other nicely. I recently got married and sold my soul to my husband Jeff in exchange for an endless supply for Starbursts.

Cheating for Fun and Profit
BrentDeHut

It's often a tricky situation when one team comes to me with reports of another team cheating. Nobody wants to be Judge Dredd during an otherwise fun quiz night (exception: Judge Dredd theme quiz), but the rules are there for a reason. It's usually perfectly innocent- someone's using their cell phone to text their Nana during the quiz, or a team of six has an extra friend or two show up after quiz starts and just rolls with it. Last night I got a report of a team using cell phones during rounds, and a report of a team with seven players. Fortunately it turned out to be the same team, and they were happy enough to continue with seven players and be excluded from prizes, so the cell

Sup nerds. Nikki left Lumpy's in my care last night, so I did my best not to let her down! You five teams that showed up are beautiful people. And now I've quizzed for some of you twice this week! Double nerds. The Guesstapo continued their streak with the win, and Dying Alone, Eaten By Cats came in second. Geek Bowl is soon, so I'm glad you guys did well!

I'm Going Solo!
R-Kenny

Who needs a band? Or a scorekeeper? Or any of that non-sense. It's time to release a solo album that no one cares about. I'll record a bunch of songs that sound kind of like shitty versions of the ones we did as a band and we'll all think of what could have been. Let's get these things out of the way. The White Stripes > Jack White. No Doubt > Gwen Stefani. The Beatles > John Lennon, George Harrison or Paul Mccartney.  In our new feature, weekly, I'll give everyone some pointers for making sure they're improving their quiz game. Today's tip? Awards nominees. Oscars, Golden Globes, Tonys, Emmys and Grammys. You should probably keep an eye on those nominations

Naked and Hungry
Kirsten

I love subbing at The Cube because it never fails to sate my appetite for delicious barbecue.  Moving from North Carolina meant a serious up tick in green chile consumption (praise be) but I’ve missed those smokey meats covered in tang and spice.  On that note, pulled pork is meat spaghetti.  How has this not been addressed by the masses, yet? Excluding a pretty poor performance identifying Hollywood's best naked scenes, the competition was almost as good as the food last night.  Totes Stoats, Boogers 4 Brains and Edgar Allan Poe-Kemon: The Evening Staryu were neck and neck for most of the evening,

At the tender age of seven, Kirsten sat crying under the coat rack in Mrs. Johnston's second grade classroom.  She had misspelled "receive" and learned the harsh lesson that it was possible to get an answer wrong. Fifteen years later, that douchebag is your Geeks quizmaster.  A job that feeds her know-it-all soul.
