Canada Haunts Me
Cody H,.

Did you know that tomorrow is Canada Day? I didn't either, as we're all about a certain (much better) holiday that happens a mere three days later; but here we are, listening to mostly terrible song parodies featuring our neighbor to the north. Ranging from an indecipherable Uptown Funk parody, to the worst backing track to California Gurls you've ever heard, to an actually decent Neil Diamond impression, Round 2 truly had it all; and now we never have to hear it again!   Anyway, hello! We crammed into Theater 4 thanks to Magic Mike XXL, and got to know each other better as we used up every chair and then some on this night of Quiz. In addition to the wonder of Canada,

Happy Birthday, Canada and the United States!
MelissaSummers

It’s Fourth of July (aka Dog Psychosis Day) this Saturday! Try not to blow off anything important. Do the Canadians blow stuff up on Canada Day? I completely missed the chance to use one of my favorite punk songs to accompany the Picasso round: Burning Sensation’s take on “Pablo Picasso”. Genius. I’ll play it next week if I remember. It was originally performed by Jonathan Richman & the Modern Lovers, but I think Burning Sensations did it better. It was a sad day for feminism this evening with many of you confusing Leona Helmsley for Gloria Steinem. Also, as far as

A lifetime’s experience with socially awkward geekiness has led inevitably to Geeks Who Drink.  The Groveland Tap is my first gig, which is a return home.  Drinkers in my family have been imbibing there since it was The Fairview Palms, and my kids played their first game of pool at BB Dixon’s.

A cubicle slave by day, by night I hang out with amusing drunks either for Geeks Who Drink or driving the PedalPub, a non-motorized party bus.  I also bike, homebrew, play scrabble, read everything, and volunteer for Surly Brewing’s SGAD volunteer corps.  I have two kids (that I know of), a spouse, two cats, and an antisocial cockatiel named Füd.

I ride bikes a lot and enjoy hanging out with people who are a lot smarter than me.

In which we appreciate air conditioning.
Ozzimo or The Captian

I don't think I can properly describe the psyche of a true Mossback (life-long Pacific NorthWesterner) in 90 degree heat. It's equal parts rage, despair, and hopelessness. We are not built for this. We can't see any reason a person would want to live in a place where the sun beats down so hard that it kills the grass (which explains the US Cup greens by the way). We simply can't even. Most of this is due to our homes lacking AC. We just never expected to need it. And now global warming is fucking us. THANKS A LOT, ASS(es).  The Forum has a lovely AC Unit though, so we packed in and enjoyed the sub 70 degree temps to quiz it up, Mossback style. We talked Weed, Lonely states,

I was born a poor black child... hold on... nope thinking of someone else. I was born in Suburbia. Like, smack dab. My hometown of Puyallup is famous for 3 things.

1.  1. Before Prohibition it was the hops capital of the world. (Thanks a lot Puritans!! Grrrr) But this just goes to show that when they say there's something in the water around here, they're talking about beer.

2.  2. The guy who played the Dad on "A Christmas Story" graduated from Puyallup High School and is, as far as I know, the most famous person to grow up here.

3.  3. It is the current home of your humble Quizmaster, Ozzimo.

Anyway, here's the quick and dirty. I'm class of 01 from Puyallup High School; I left high school thinking I wanted to teach Choir as that was basically the extent of my knowledge. When I got to college I found out how little these people make and how hard they had to train to do it. I immediately changed my major to Political Science and have never looked back. This is one of the main reasons not to argue with me when you think I’m wrong. I'm trained to win a fight, even if the other person is 6 kinds of right.

I started quizzing when a coworker of mine turned me on to the quiz and mentioned GWD was looking for a Tacoma quizmaster. I went through the pre-req community college course, the ritual hazing, the bleeding/burning of saint if I ever left the family, and the chopping off of my ring finger on my right hand. I'm told this is all legit and there was no need to look it up to check.

You can find me at the Forum on Tuesdays at 8:30. I highly suggest ordering the Juicy Lucy while you're there.

Geeks Who Drink - The Age of Shad
ShadCampbell

WOW!  My first night of hosting full time…Ok I have hosted plenty of times before but this was special.  I am now the full time host and our illustrious past leader was in attendance…when he wasn’t being escorted by half naked male models for the MMXL premier.  But I digress.  The night started out with a few new Scrabble words (Words with Friends – for the ones that only play on their smart phones).  I played “Oh Canada” before the beginning of round two, but I was the only one who knew the words.  Nobody was impressed.  Everybody was close until we got we got to Picasso round and the separation began.

Britney Spears, Music Icon??
The Babe With The Power

This afternoon at the day job, someone decided to play the Pandora Backstreet Boys channel and there was so much Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera that I felt like I was back in my drinking days. Of course, like most other people at the time everyone ragged on them for being over-produced pop princesses, more so Britney Spears. Especially once she started shaving her head and driving with her infant kid in her lap, it seemed Spears was heading for the dustbin of child entertainers gone bad. So how nuts is it that just a couple of years ago she was ranked 11th on a "100 Greatest Women in Music" list?? I know!Meanwhile, many an artist with bushels of more talent go relatively

The Parenting Olympics: Casey Anthony Vs. Adrian Peterson
OwenBallard

When reading this week’s blog title, you might ask yourself, “What in the world I am talking about.” Well, it just so happens that one of our regular teams, team TAYLOR TOTS answered questioned 7 on the visual round with “Adrian Peterson” even though it was very obvious that the answer we were looking for was the name of that sexy, young, Nancy Grace inspired pariah and child murderer known as Casey Anthony. At the time I was grading papers, I noted that their answer was wrong yet funny and I told myself to revisit it at a later time. After seeing their answer of “Adrian Peterson” for the humorous joke that it was, given Adrian Peterson’s addiction

The most frequently used answer was Fuck Tim (the bartender) probably because he knows everything and we are all jealous!   Another fun night at the Toad.   I love being corrected on my pronunciations especially those with a French origin.  (yes, Fuck Tim!)  Though I am from the East Coast so I never have been proud of my pronunciations!   There is a new IPA on tap from 10 Barrel out of Bend, Oregon.  Very nice though a little high in the alcohol content.  (6.8%) When ordering the Rouge Hazelnut Brown we are now calling in the Austin Special!   Congrats once again to "Fuck the Visual Round" for taking

Poop: The Universal Humor
Nicknames are Hard

In 1886, the U.S. Division of Forestry was recognized and established by an Act of Congress (24 Stat. L.103), in the Department of Agriculture. Forestry as a division had been at first organized by simple order of the Commissioner of Agriculture in 1881 under N.H. Egleston. Its next chief, Dr. Bernhard E. Fernow was appointed 15 Mar 1886, and served until 1898. It became the Bureau of Forestry in 1901, and the Forest Service in 1905. During the term of President Theodore Roosevelt (1905), the Forest Reserves were transferred by Act of Congress from the Dept. of the Interior to the Dept of Agriculture. The same Act opened these natural resources for legitimate uses, and further outlined the

Happy July Eve to all, and to all a good quiz.  We're Here for the Beer constantly reminds me that the only come to quiz for one reason, but I got news for you, tonight there was an entire team that came solely for me.  Or to see me host quiz while drinking or some mixture of all of it, but, they were there for the quizmaster.  Great night to come to quiz too, fun rounds aplenty.   Round one was great for people who love scrabble and/or know dumb words.  Round five saw some high scores and I always appreciate those to help teams think they played better than they may have.  Round seven was about musicals and was by far the most popular

Pooping In America?
ohhSOsavvy

Hey, there, Quizfolk! Another Tuesday came and went, where quizzers quizzed and drinkers drinked. Old Chicago tonight was packed to the BRIM with 10 teams playing and countless observers and youths hanging around. I think the softball team and their coaches particularly enjoyed Round Seven--Broadway songs parodied to be about poop. Yes, poop. Overall, tonight's quizzers were especially full of 'Murican energy after the US Women's National Team made it to the Fifa Women's World Cup Finals mere hours before quiz started. At least, that made me feel extra 'Murican until Round Two when we heard some Canuck parodies of pop songs...   My most (and perhaps least?)

Kick Off Your Sunday Shoes
DJ ROB ROB

I'm going to admit something deeply personal here on this blog: up until last night, I had never seen the movie Footloose. I know it's not the biggest pop culture gap in the world. It's not like I missed out on Back to the Future or any of the original Star Wars films, I just...never saw it until last night. There are certain films in the culturesphere that are such an obvious "classic" movies (if you want to call Footloose that), that even without seeing it, you kinda already know all the steps of the movie. Everything was basically exactly as expected, minus maybe the scene where they're playing chicken with the tractors. Overall I guess you could say I enjoyed it. Young Kevin Bacon is great,

"For all the latest medical poop/Call Surgeon General C. Everett Koop..."   Definitely not one of The Be Sharp's greatest hits--I always preferred "Baby On Board"--but a classic that will surely stand the test of time. What a shame that The Simpsons abruptly went off the air after its ninth season. A show with so much potential--but thank goodness that they didn't let a spectacular thing turn into a terrible, hackneyed shell of itself, trundling on zombie-like for nearly a decade after its prime.   We had another great night at Pimlico Pub last night playing quiz.

Honesty Doesn't Win Silver
You probably haven't heard of her

  There was no Blake in Blake St tonight- instead you got me! And I have to start by thanking Blucifer for their integrity. They and Sad News Bears were locked in a battle for second place, and Blucifer came forward to tell me that they had had the same tiebreaker question the night before. So I asked a different one. And then they lost second place by a mere half a million people (relative to the population of the most populous city in the world). Although they didn't win second place, they won a place in my heart as Most Integral Team Ever. In case you didn't know, tonight there is a leap second. That means you and me and everyone

Forbidden Fruits!
Marla Bee

I ate cheesecake today. I am lactose and gluten intolerant and cheesecake normally has both of those terribly painful things, but I did it and I'm not ashamed. I actually bought it for my coworker that covered my ass for an appointment this morning and it was so rich she couldn't finish it so I took the liberty of finishing it for her. My belly is a little bloated and I'm a little foggy in the brain, but it was so worth it. I haven't had cheesecake in forever. I didn't even love it that much when I could eat it, but you definitely don't know what you've got till it's gone! Same with donuts. I wasn't much of a donut fan until I couldn't have them. Shit, I crave donuts every damn day at this
