Growler You Next Tuesday
Dr. Rex N.F. Echt, Professor of New Jack Swing

It was a night full of new teams at Brutopia, more than I’ve seen in quite a while. It was a fair reminder that I’m pretty used to seeing the same teams every week there, and a reminder to slow down and help out the newer teams who come to play. I haven’t just bullet-pointed a blog in a while, so I’m going to start there.    The Quizmaster’s Favorite Round of the Night:    Round three’s set of quotes had quizzers choosing whether they were said by Hillary Clinton or Tracy Flick from the movie “Election”. It was a tricky round but the more deranged-sounding Hillary quotes were

First things first
Darth Gargamel

Did we really have to include a whole round on Hillary when she's on tv? I'll tell you what I loved though, the question about I'm keeping a chart on forgiveness-Every team got that wrong. Of course that was said by a fictional character. No legitimate Presidential candidate would say such a thing. Oh wait. Good crowd tonight. Couple of brand new teams. One of them even one the whole thing. Michelle Van Etten's RNC Speech. I don't know who that is or what her speech was about, but I'll assume it was funny. Second place was one of the regulars. Lemme Getta Pikachu as opposed to Let me get a peek at you. I get it now. Literally just now. No matter.

Couple things about me: I'm a man, and that means I do man things. I shit with the door open, I go on riverboat gambling trips, I make my own jerky. And now all of that is wrecked!

I lied. Not one of those things is true, but if it impresses you lets stick with it. I'll tell you something that is true though. Clint Eastwood once gave me the finger. True story.

Other things......I enjoy the color blue. I'm right handed, so I've got that going for me. I cannot say the alphabet backwards, even when I'm drunk. Which is a lot. Also I've never been to Oregon. My dreams are but three: 1. To appear on Jeopardy. Cause if we aren't here for trivia, what's it all for? 2. To appear on Drunk History. I got my degree and history, and thus far it's proved useless. Appearing on that show would make it all worth while. 3. To have a sandwich named after me. Who needs a kid sharing your name when you can have a sandwich.

 

Also I enjoy Pinky and the Brain cartoons, and if you talk shit about them or request that I play Kanye music during the game, your team starts with negative 50 points. Your call man.

It Just Keeps Getting Bigger!
Jonathan

This was only our third quiz at Llywelyn's in Soulard, and we had even more teams (nine) than the last two! It's getting bigger and...better? Yeah, let's go with "better." We're definitely developing a reputation as "not the worst thing to do on a Tuesday night," which is an honorific that I will wear like a badge of honor. This weeks questions were all over the board. There were drugs! There was sex! There was Rock and Roll! The most entertaining round of the evening had to be Round 3: Blonde Ambition, which required our poor, unsuspecting quizzers to attribute quotes to either Hilary Clinton of Tracy Flick from the movie "Election." For a 50-50 round, there were a surprising number

Aaaaand I'm back, back again, quizmaster Pete is back tell a friend.  After a summer full of travelling, I am finally back to stay in Houston to be your qm each and every week.  We had a great group of beautiful geeks last night competing during a very difficult quiz and a rowdy crowd.   What did we learn?  Here are a few of my favorites from last night.  Khaki is Urdu for "dust colored".  Who would have thought that step one to getting girls would be to buy dust colored pants named by the Pakistanis?  Step to of course is to do the curls.

I've Seen It All / There is No More To See
Troy D.

Oh, Lars von Trier. You ruined my life. The movie director (R6Q1) was behind "Dancer in the Dark" from 2000... which is the most damn depressing movie ever. No, really. If you've never seen this movie, it stars Bjork (who is actually really good), dreaming Technicolor dreams while living a very depressing life to provide for her son. And then it gets worse. Like, every single time you think "well, something happy has to happen soon" - nope - it gets worse. It's so damn gorgeous. But I try to imagine somebody popping this into the BluRay player for date night. And that is such a horrible freakin' idea. On to quiz, eh? A nice mishmash of teams for tonight's quiz -- with Here

Our three winning teams won some fun swag courtesy of Angel City Brewery, in addition to the customary gift certificates. In first place, we had Alex Farted On This, followed by Kate’s a Fucking Professional and Stage Cage! Now for the dishonorable mentions, the questions that are so wrong they’re right!

Celebrating the work of Alan Alderaan
Jacy

We all find new words in different places, so it’s no wonder that one team was very frustrated when they didn’t get Diaspora as an answer considering they just read that in some Alderaanian Fan Fiction…which I had to repeat just because I was so shocked someone would admit to that.  I believe I told her, “well there’s your problem right there”.  In my favorite line of the night our manager Jake said “you mean Alan Aldarannian?” and I laughed a lot.  The quizzer had a small rant about how she

Little gifs floatin' around, a midi theme of Eye of the Tiger. . . kids will never know what horrors we have survived.

I'll Call it MacCleaver
Mark

Let's talk about TV show crossover episodes. The Simpsons did quite a few of them. X-Files, 24, and Family Guy episodes, just to name a few. Ray Barone from Everybody Loves Raymond showed up on King of Queens a few times. What about reality TV though? There's the Real World/Road Rules Challenge (which I watched all the time). So, I thought of a fun reality/action drama crossover. Chopped meets MacGyver. Richard Dean Anderson would obviously be one of the judges on Chopped, but it wouldn't be Chopped in a kitchen. It would be engineers in a lab. So the contestants are given a "picnic basket" with three mystery items, plus a wild card item. If you've ever seen

Never get involved in a land war in Asia
St. Jimmy

The band Asia was not that bad. Were they the best prog rock band? No, that title belongs to Pink Floyd. But they did tamper down some of the excesses of their fellow brethren including the other bands that most of the members came from. Most of the songs hover around the 4 to 5 minute mark and they have hooks. Heat of the moment is a catchy song. When prog rock bands chose virtuosity over making a good rock song, it gets pretty terrible. Yeah, Asia made slickly produced 80s music but with members from Yes and Emerson Lake and Palmer, it could have been way worse. And hey, Carl Palmer actually played real drums instead of electric drums. I hate when bands use electric drums (looking at you

Suddenly This Summer...
Pope Pepe

The first time I ever tried illegal drugs, I had no idea what I was doing. That seems like a common thing, but I sincerely did not know that I was taking anything. Let’s go back to the start of this all, and maybe I can clear somethings up for you, valued reader of this blog. And no, that’s not a typo, I know there’s only one of you. I was of the D.A.R.E. generation. For those of you who don’t know, it stood for “Drug Abuse Resistance Education.” We got the totally awesome and never parodied t-shirts sent to our school! We got bumper stickers! What we didn’t get was the actual education part of the acronym. Not a single person, educator,

Born on a dark and stormy night, Joe came into this world asking questions. That sort of belligerent attitude was just the thing, and he eased into the role of Quizmaster. Hailing originally from the great state of Connecticut, Joe comes to quizzing by way of Washington, D.C. and New York City.

After several failed attempts to break into the acting world, Joe decided that producing was his bag. He produced several small venue concerts, comedy shows and benefits. He also produced the two full length musicals Lunch (part of the New York Musical theatre Festival) and Titus X, a blood soaked, punk rock, balls out adaptation of Titus Andronicus.  Joe spent years in the non profit world as well, working for various groups until he decided to strike out on his own.

Striking out brought him back to Connecticut where he ran his own business and free-lanced in the non-profit development field. He comes to Geeks Who Drink thanks to his love of all things geek (Star Trek 4evah!) and drinking. He can be found, pipe in hand, downing a glass of Famous Grouse scotch most nights...after he's put his son to bed. Joe currently resides in the central realms of Connecticut with his two cats and his destiny.

Thanks to everyone for their support and remember; everyone's a winner...unless you lose.

Hello humans and those of you who think we care about your political opinions on social media. We don't. Shut up. So last night everything was going fantastic.

Onto last night's recap. In Round One we asked probing questions about Asia the continent not Asia the prog-rock band. Most of our teams knew that Mecca is housed in Saudi Arabia and that Sri Lanka, Cambodia, and Thailand are Buddist. Where a couple teams floundered was naming the Macedonian king who dubbed himself "King of Asia" (Alexander the Great) or a feature of pants, what was the Urdu word

'Twas and amazing Tuesday for a quiz, and I couldn't have been more honored subbing in at this venue. Due to a low battery issue with the wireless mic, we were delayed a few minutes but we were able to catch up by the end. We had some fun tonight and learned some cool and really important stuff. Here's how it went down: R1: Eight Questions on Asia. Buddhism is the most-practiced religion down near Thailand, "King of Asia" was the self-applied title for Alexander the Great, and Asia only takes up 30% of the earth's land mass.  R2: Another classic episode of cover songs that were gender bent. Pretty good round overall, but no perfect scores. Addicted to Love by Robert

Happy Tuesday! Today was a fun day at Bethany Public House. They had a wine stock-up sale with lots to taste, so naturally, I had to try a few before I started the quiz tonight. Super fun. Needless to say, it resulted in me struggling my way through the quiz. A combination of wine and sleepiness resulted in me saying “it’s weirded strangely”, which doesn’t make any sense. Additionally, I stumbled on several other combinations of words that normal people can say correctly at any time without thinking about it.
