You didn't read me my Miranda rights so im out!
TaylorCrane

That is not something you should ever say to a cop. Because they dont have to read those verbatim. Just hit the main points. Also if you ask someone if they're a cop, lets say some new guy you're buying the drugs from, and he says no im not a cop, that is not a green light to buy drugs. Cops dont have to tell you they are cops. Thats all Hollywood. We actually send police undercover sometimes. How would that be possible with that super stupid rule. Come on guys. You should know better.  So last night I made a joke about abortion AND suicide. None of you left. I'm thankful for that. Not only because those are controversial subjects, but also they weren't even like super

Whatcha thinking? Quiz stuff I guess,
AdelaideLee

Last night my darling quizzers at Johnny O'Hagan's faced a particularly difficult quiz. None of our quizzes should be a breeze, of course, but this one really left some heads spinning.  Round 2 especially was a strong get for some of our teams composed entirely of Millennials, but other teams found themselves floundering. I don't have all of my numbers in front of me, but I have to speculate that it was among the generally lowest-scoring music rounds I've administered. I, however, am in that sweet age spot, so I think I'm going to make a work playlist inspired by last night's R2.  Despite that scuffle, and a similarly brutal Round

Sharia Law Pronounced 5 Ways
Mark

I wish I could make every song in my iTunes sound like an 8-bit Nintendo theme. Round 7 “Nintendo-ized” theme songs from favorite animated TV shows like Inspector Gadget, Captain Planet, and My Little Pony. SImply epic. In hindsight, I should’ve organized a Super Mario Bros party after the quiz, cause all I wanted to do was revisit my youth and rescue a snotty princess while shooting fireballs and smashing Goombas!  Ah well...   Apparently questions on top American military leaders is completely lost on Geeks in Santa Fe. Hardly anyone could name George Washington, although you faired better by naming Pershing. Nearly everyone thought

Welcome New NYU Students!
"Rabies Free Since 83"

A new batch of fresh faces arrived, only to have their pub quiz dreams killed by regulars, who took all 3 prize positions. Shout out to Dave (whose name is not Dan) for coming in 4th place as a solo artist. Good job! You ALMOST beat those teams of many players. Next week's game will start on time and we will be all business... going quickly and efficiently so we conclude before the beginning of Pats vs Steelers. Ugh, which criminals do you root for in that game?  Haley Joel Osment got fat.

So we ended up with 18 teams last night! Holy crap! The good news is that you could all hear me perfectly, right? Haha ok maybe not. I wish it hadn’t been so busy, so I could have given Lindsay a proper sendoff! Last night was her last night folks (for those of you who know her), because she’s moving away and it makes me sad.   On more quiz related themes, Kim Davis signed our marriage license won top prize, after being the bridesmaid for years. Threat level midnight snuck into second, while Anne Frank was one point behind them in third.

The show must go on!
Major Tom

Well, one of you guys got me sick. I'm kidding, of course. Actually, it was probably one of my filthy little seventh graders that got me sick. I'm pretty unhappy about that. I almost never call in sick to work, but I especially don't like calling in this early in the school year. It's a paranoia that if I use my sick days early, then I won't have any if I need them later in the year. Like all of a sudden this year I'll contract ebola or something in April. So, I started feeling terrible and took Tuesday off. Not wanting to blow any more sick days, I went in to work with a sore throat and sneezing up stuff that you don't want me to describe.  I came home, and found that my air conditioner

I Wish This Microphone Was A Cookie Skillet
Ho-Ho the Wonderdog!

Good morning, quizzers! Quizmaster Hobert here, glad to be back with you after my week off. What did I do while I was away from the Pumping Company? Well, I guess I did nothing. I just sat at home on my night off staring at a wall, wondering what I should do instead of hosting a quiz. By time I finally made up my mind about what to do (buy a new pair of shoes) it was already today, and I had to get ready for the quiz. It was a great week off! But we were back in with a vengeance at Pumping Co tonight!. Thirteen teams joined us for the quiz, and they clearly came to impress! Our top teams for the evening—Adam’s

Just when you thought you left summer behind there's another muggy night on the Mink. But the humidity and lack of air conditioning aren't enough to stop the faithful folks of Scottsville from coming out to win some beer. It was another night of questions about baseball and recent pop music, but the fine folks at the James River Brewery put on their game faces and made a go of it. As it turns out, folks were up to date on their current events controversies and boy did they know their rights, too. But beyond that, things were a little spotty which led to a great game of ups and downs. There were lots of lead changes and many ties as we sifted through the night's

For Once, Trump Didn't Lead...
Selina

Always take time to appreciate life's little blessings like that. A pretty chill night this week, in my opinion, but my view might be skewed since this was the first week in many I didn't start the quiz with a cup of black coffee. It was an informative night for many, since, well, no one ever thinks about how great 8-bit tunes are until they hear a ton. You can find all sorts of MIDI covers on YouTube, folks. Woo!

How Long Has It Been?
Charles

How long has it been?   So I guess I was gone to host the Nintendo Quiz a while back.  That was fun, a change of pace and a really fun theme to host a quiz on.  Then I got sucked into the vortex of the Penny Arcade Expo, dragging 30 video games up to Seattle.  Convention Time doesn't exist on the same scale as regular time, likely due to the incredible nerd-gravity that cons possess, so I'll estimate that I've been gone for at least several months.  While it was fun, it was also overwhelming and tiring, I guess

The Right to Die and Other Controversies
Robynne

Speaking of controversial issues, I cannot be the only one who was sorely disappointed on the day they realized “You Belong With Me” is not, in fact, about a high school lesbian crush. For the longest time I’d only kind of sort of listened to the lyrics in passing, and “She wears high heels, I wear sneakers, she’s cheer captain and I’m on the bleachers” just sounds way too much like a shy, nerdy girl secretly admiring the cool popular girl. I like that version of the song, the one that’s just vaguely half-formed in my head, far

There was an emptiness accompanying the smell of melted cheese in the air tonight at Prospectors. People are preparing to depart from Denali to their next adventures and are holding on to Narnia for dear life. Thus, Geoff’s mom suddenly became important in Denali. From what I can tell, she is a super nice lady! She does people’s chores and always leaves a batch of cookies on the table when she goes! May as well call her “Felicia”.

I wish I could say I had crazy hobbies like naked skydiving (does naked camping count?), underwater shark impersonator, or snake charmer (I did play with a grass snake for an hour once), but I'm just not that interesting. Instead I'll settle with my actual lame hobbies like reading voraciously, taking tons on photos (including lots of "selfies", of course), and camping (I wasn't kidding about that). I love making thematic playlists and being a QM is a perfect outlet for that; I get to create new playlists every week. 

I'm sorta known for my nonsensical, made up words and random goofy sounds. I've been called weird more than once, I take it as a compliment. (But after attending two Geek Bowls, I'd say I'm on the low end of the GWD weirdness scale.)

I have a motorcycle (that I haven't ridden in a long time) and a cat named Zube (that I've never ridden) who likes to "assist" me when I'm preparing my quiz and creating my blog. I'm a proud native Texan, but I don't often sound like one (until I've had a few drinks).

It's pub quizes like this that make me wish I was still playing pub quiz. Not only did we have a round on Wes Craven, but round 7 was 8-bit versions of animated and puppet tv shows from my childhood. I would have rocked this quiz! But sadly, I turned in my pencil and quiz sheet for the glamorous life of a quizmaster. Sure, the pay is great and the parties are wild, but its the little things you miss - Am I right? Happy birthday to Brooke from 16 Candles. She enjoyed a delicious cupcake and didn't share with the rest of the class. In the words of Stephanie Tanner, "How Rude." How weird is it that we are going to have more Full House in our lives?

Hey Friends, I'm Josh Prime and I am from the most hated state in the country, New Jersey (seriously, they did studies). Whatever, I don't have to pump my own gas and never make left turns so... deal with it. Sometimes I mispronounce things and blame being from Jersey too, maybe that's why people hate the state. Aside from my Jersey pride, I am all about pop culture and video games (Nick Arcade anyone?... Anyone?). I keep suggesting a round on 90's Nickelodeon, I want to see everyone rocking out to the All That Theme song - remember when that was a thing? It's been real, it's been fun, its been real fun. See ya at the quiz.
