The sky wizard told me not to do my job
Caribbean Joe

There is a woman in Kentucky who has taken it upon herself to try and stop legal gay marriage by not doing her job. There was a time and a place where not doing a job gets you fired.  The difference is that she is claiming religious freedom as her reason to discriminate openly.  Now I am not saying that having beliefs is bad.  Lots of people hold them close and try to follow them in their daily lives as a way to positively interact with the world.  Sadly a lot of people have decided to selectively apply those beliefs and this clerk is a shining example of that.  She looked past the fact that she is not supposed to get divorced and did so 3 times, but refuses to issue

I enjoy long walks on the beach, scooter rides and zombies.  

I have a BS in BS.  I can BS in at least 2 languages and I can convincingly imitate a few others.

I enjoy any occasion to dress up.  I will go disco, zombie or Mandalorian if you give me a reason. 

I am Caribbean Joe.  Born in Texas, I lived in the southwest pretty much all my life.  A desert dweller's life for me.  

So I picked up quizzing after my friend and scorekeeper, Island Amy, found an ad and prodded me to audition.  The rest is history.  Loving the quiz and the people it draws.  If I am not quizzing, you may find me out enjoying Tucson.

You may also see me around town on my scooter.  Feel free to wave.

If you want to know more, stop by and quiz and meet me and I just might answer your questions. Hell I may even answer you truthfully.

What an Upset!
Shanifesto

I am filling in for The Great Ed Maudlin tonight. It's only my second time. Even though I am a novice Quizmaster, I think the night went very well. Thanks to Ed for coaching me via phone on how to set up the equipment. We started out with five teams. One of them was the Syntek Squad, these very handsome men from St. Louis who were in Indy to promote the Syntek System, a table-top draft system for home use. I've included a picture. It looks like a dream come true. Brewers like Tow Yard will fill up a bag and you put it in the box and you have your own draft beer system. At home! What more could you want? Let's review some funny moments from the quiz:

It was a bittersweet night at quiz, as it marked the final time that I would be making an appearance as your humble quizmaster. In the coming week, I’m packing up all my earthly possession and moving from Houston to crazy Fort Worth. But in an effort to get me to stay, I asked everyone to use their team names as a way to convince me to stay in Houston.   For the best team name award following that theme, honorable mentions go to Dallas Sucks D, If All You Want Is Big D, We Got You, Astros, Texans, and Hookers, Mark Does Dallas, and The Ticket Moves to Houston, Two Words:

AT THE BUZZER. IT'S GOOD!
Daniel Pool

If I ever need to convince someone to start showing up for our quiz, I'll reference last night's game. It was seriously a perfect example of why it is so great.   For instance. We had eighteen teams (and I'm SO GLAD to see things picking back up now that summer is fading, btw). SEVERAL of those teams were our regulars. But we also had a bunch of new teams? And our top three teams of the night? In third place we had Our Team Stood Us Up -- a team that, with the exception of one player, were all first timers. In second we had We Can't Hear Back Here -- a group who were playing as a team for the first time, and some of whom

A Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste
Winja

     What a week!  I’ve not had a night off since last Thursday and it’s bound to wear on me.  This past weekend was all about building cabinets and learning how to run electricity to a new outlet - thanks internet!  It’s amazing how an hour online made me a qualified electrician.  I’ll spare you the details of virtually pre-stripped screws from Ikea and my almost martial arts zen like use of swearing to help overcome hurdles, but needless to say, after cutting, and sawing and fish taping, I’ll be victorious with a new kitchen that will have on display, safely behind glass, my nerdy beer glass collection illuminated

     That there is the St. Sixtus Abbey in Westvleteren, Belgium, makers of some of the best beer in the world - so yeah, they deserve a leap.

     I'll travel for all passions I follow, and I'll line up early.

     I grew up always liking to read out loud, so perhaps that's what drew me to GWD.

     Have an elastic mind and you'll survive, barely.

Jason

It ain’t the greatest title, but it beats “Back to Skool,” “School Dayz,” or “Some Other Tired, Cleverly Whimsical Misspelling of an Academic Return Theme.”   With Autumn looming, it’s time to start seeing fresh new victims faces as the local colleges fill up again with students returning to their partying studies. With a solid first few rounds, it looked like our teams were showing off their intellectual plumage, as well. Also, it’s time to start seeing some more Autumn-like weather, as far as I’m

Round 6 was the most fabulous thing on the planet.  And I love that everyone instinctively can sing along with the Lion King theme song.  It’s like we’re all secretly African or something.  Nice scores all around.  Not so great scores on my twisted anything and everything inbetween experiment because Indiana is a basketball team that you should know.  HA I know something about sports ball that you don’t.  Suck it nerds!   Shout out to Eric who kicked ass as a scorer and was way prettier and sexier and smarter than Brett.  Brett, I hope you’re

Wait..Wes Craven died!?
DanMaioranaIsAwesome

Hello Sonaites! Dan here again with the Weekly Geeks Who Drink Recap of this week. This weeks quiz saw everyone fall to the risky round three this week. With having to put all correct answers or get 0 points for the question was punishing for the people who wrote three answers instead of four, quite the hard round. We saw our defending champs Super Karate Monkey Death Car leave because of an unfortunate allergy attack, I hope the woman is okay! And I hope to see you next week. This week we saw some of the regulars slip, with school back in session, yesterday was pretty lonely without you guys! This weeks winners was the team known as "Titanic Swim Team" with the runners up

But really, another great night at the Blind Donkey!  Lots of new faces, which is exciting.  Everyone had a solid Round 1, which was great, because I had a lot of fun reading some of those twisted new slogans.  I can tell you that if the Mouse’s Park really was the Fappiest

Chris

Ugh. Allergies are killing me you guys. Here lies Chris, died from drowning in his own snot. RIP, me. Just chop my head off now, if I'm gonna be like this for another day or two. Pretty chill quiz, some new folks padding out the regulars. The REAL fun was that BRIMPERS 2.0 came thru with their promise last week to bring a bunch of copies of SEX CRIMINALS to share with everyone! If you don't know anything about SEX CRIMINALS, it's about a couple that is able to stop time when they have sex, and they use this ridiculous power to rob banks. In the hands of a lot of folks, a device like this would go right

A Real Life Horror Movie
ErictheWellRead

Last week I pretty much (e-)mailed in my blog entry. It was a very hectic week, there was a lot going on, and I promised you a doozy of a blog this week. It may have something to do with the death of Wes Craven, but there was certainly something odd in the air at Brew Pub & Kitchen last night. For instance, when you look in the dictionary under the word sexy you don't normally see a picture of a QM. I do, of course, but that's because my dictionary has a mirror pasted under the word "sexy." Don't blame me; it's an old dictionary and I was lonely in high school. (Speaking of dictionaries, I think one team, the Dum Basses, could have used one, as their spelling

Geek of the Week: Neil
Lady Brett

This week, I had the pleasure to get to know our Geek of the Week Neil a little better. You might remember him from such groups as the Ghostbusters on Halloween or The Redshirts. I, of course, had to start off the questioning with the mandatory Alamo/pub quiz questions. His favorite food and drink at the Alamo? He says there are almost too many good options to choose a favorite, but then said he particularly enjoys the Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich and the Poet Oatmeal Stout Milkshake. (Personally, I'm going to have to try that shake very soon!) As a regular quizzer, Neil had some thoughts on the perfect quiz round (and I think it sounds great). The quizmaster

I'm living the dream in Kalamazoo! Originally from Dallas, I grew up in a small town in the Rocky Mountains (not South Park) before moving to Colorado Springs. There, I learned the magic that is pub quiz. I consider myself a true rags-to-riches character - a girl who simply went to quiz one or two nights a week for years, and now is the first Geeks Who Drink Quizmaster in Michigan. When I'm not pub quizzing, I'm visiting art galleries, enjoying a craft brew, or chilling with my cliche family (husband, dog, and cat).

We had a birthday in the house!  Our third place team (and first repeat quizzer who does not share my DNA), Ray of One!  He is celebrating this weekend, but his actually birthday was quiz night.  I think he did awesome considering he is on a team by himself (again).  Please be his friend and adopt him next week if he comes back. The night definitely went smoother to start than last week, and there was much rejoicing.  Everyone did well on our first round (even though it is designed to build your confidence), but Kelly Clarkson was our a weak point for most.  I played the song you dingbats, maybe next time pay attention.  I'm disappointed my well-read

The Jury is Still Out
Dav

  Hello Westsiders! Thanks so much for another remarkable quiz. I have to admit, I don’t remember too much of it as I was on a liver-soaking mission. As I told you, I was selected for jury duty and, from what I have been warned from others, it is awful. Well, they were correct, so I was thankful to at least still have the remainder of my buzz going in at 8 am. I figured (hoped) my experience would be similar to most where you go in, the bailiff calls role,  and they he dismisses everybody because all cases were demurred, settled, continued, or otherwise eliminated from the daily docket. I’ll just say that did happen eventually, but not until my hangover was in

On The Nose
Renerdssance Man

I don’t think I’ve ever had a team nail the tiebreaker question before, but it happened last night. Forgot to ask whether Jersey actually knew the answer or whether it was a guess, but it doesn’t really matter because the two newcomers to the neighborhood got it exactly right to beat out Bread Makes You Fat in a race for second place. It was just second, however, because erstwhile Sanctuary regulars The Gang Goes to Trivia absolutely dominated this quiz from start to finish. Getting a 15J on Round 2 (Eight Songs, Four Girls) when nobody else scores more than 7 points will pretty much guarantee

So, it may have rained a bit. That's good in some respects, but not in relation to us quizzing outside. I may have forgotten to take a coat. But next time I'll remember. What else could I bring, tea candles and blankets? Brace yourself people, Winter is coming. Right after fall. It's September. What a month. I could take it or leave it. What did you think of August? There are a lot of questions in this intro. And there are a lot of questions in a quiz. Nice transition. Round 1 had product ad slogans with a letter changed.
