Quinoa Backache
JacyMcRae

That is what my computer wrote when it wrote the team name Quinoa Bukakke (I hope that’s the correct spelling, I normally would Google to check but… ).   Someone else said that a backache is what you get from a bukakke, I thought it was like carpal tunnel.  I did have some very high scores in the music round for the bands that a) knew who Mr. Bungle was or 2) that ICP made a song dissing Eminem.  It also helped to know a few other things but those were the ones that set you apart.  Something

THE DANCE-OFF IS OFF
LukeDarby

The best way to buy my love is through clever team names, and it's scientifically proven in my own peer-reviewed studies that the cleverest team names all involve either Pokemon or drag queens. Your goal should be to hit a sweet spot between the two. Now, this isn't the REASON that Squirtle Squad won, but it certainly didn't hurt either. It came down to sudden death between them and the Wet Bandits, and although there was some borderline violent cheering for a dance-off, rules are rules and questions about Ruth Badass Ginsburg are also important. What we learned: Xena: Warrior Princess needs a reboot. As

Hey DJ.
Twilight Sparkle

It was a good day yesterday. The sun was shining and it wasn't over 100 degrees. I count that as a Houston Win. Tonight we had 6 teams fight to the figurative death to win some free beer. As I approach my 1 year mark as a Quizmaster, I have learned people will do a lot of things to get free booze.   People also ask you to do weird things when they see you with a mic. Beyond the typical "Hey DJ, play this song" stuff, my favorite request was this: The House used to have a sand volleyball court in the parking lot. Every Thursday, these two teams would play there and then come in for drinks after. They tended to stay outside since they were sweaty and gross, but every now

Quiz from an Irish Restaurant
AdelaideLee

Boy, when I came into Johnny O'Hagan's and saw it packed shoulder-to-shoulder with bepoloshirted fellows and gals dressed up for date night, I almost had a heart attack-ack-ack-ack. Then an Angry Young Man informed me that a few doors down, Wrigley Field was hosting the Piano Man himself, Billy Joel. And every person in that bar was attending the concert. Luckily, I ain't too proud, so I skulked around near the door and spotted my regular quizzers as they came in, letting them know that we'd be starting closer to 8:20 to let the Bill Joel fans clear out. And lucky for me, seven teams stuck it out through the madness. I guess the night was still young. Let's just say... I went to exremes. Our

Never Leave out the Misdemeanor
Pierce

What a competitive quiz we had last night! A full house of teams wrecking rounds all evening long. We learned about atoms, adams, atom ant not adam ant, and that "taser" is an acronym. Go figure. Most teams crushed the first audio round, so we had a lot of high scores right away. PGOAT, Shirley Temple of Doom, Heddy Lovers, and MKD brought up the rear of the standings, while Bumble Without a Cause, Jaime Lannister's Severed Hand, and Not 4th Place? all finished in the middle. Scaliwags secured fourth place while Red Light District,

Rockin Socks Off, One Pair At A Time!
Plucky, Robbizombie

    I'm loving this fallish weather.  What a beautiful night for a quiz!  We got some fresh faces on the staff behind the bar.  Everyone welcome John!  The taco truck was absolutely on point and the quiz had so many fun rounds!  All around, it was a great night with all of you.       I have to admit that I totally went easy on you for the first round.  I was even nice enough to give you the first letter of each answer.  Yep, I'm kinda badass.  I had never heard of a GOP person being called a rino.  That is a first for me.  How did you like that Round 2?  All you had to do was name the artists.

MCA - Get on the mic my man.
MikhailSpector

It was August 27th, 2015.   The city, Portage. The place, Clancy’s. The happening, Geeks Who Drink.   The lights were low, the spirits were high, and the questions poured like water over a cliff. Fingers were pointed, air guitars strum, accidental racism, and drinks stronger than any bull. Arconyms were forced upon them, and the quizzers responded with a resounding STFU.   I had a good night. The audio equipment is always such fun with its high functionality. I may begin to just use the speakers and not the panel I was provided, but time shall tell.   Our only solo player was

The Ferocious Flea vs. Adam Ant... I'd Watch That.
Selina

Thursday nights, while they may tire me out, are most definitely the high point of my week. Pretty much all the regulars came out, plus a few new teams! Huzzah. My apologies to The Underdougs for accidentally not noticing the second "u" the first time I announced their name. My old business card used to feature the introductory speech from the A-Team, but it also had a drawing of Batman on it, so it wasn't much of a business card. Shout-out to Eric the bartender for providing me with the libations to make me extra entertaining last night!

Fewer yikes-y names than I was expecting
That Guy...

I was pretty sure that every name was going to involve the shooter in southern Virginia, but we only had He really killed that interview…er. I guess there was enough news this week that you could choose between That guy’s a dead ringer for Justin Bieber, Dead Panda Babies, and Deez Nuts…both teams.   Children’s hands make a 6” sub look huge is so last week, and Somewhat Sober was NOT anywhere near sober by the end of the night. Justin Bieber ending up taking top prize after squeaking ahead after round 4.

Did the word get out that I was coming to the Greyhound for Geeks tonight?  Because, man, you all showed up in droves!  This was one of the largest team turnouts for the Greyhound, and I think for every group playing tonight, there was another group just there for the wings and beer.  But each and every one of you were listened along like champs, and the bar staff was killing it with service, so you all deserve to pat yourselves on the back!   You all came out of the gate strong in the first round, just rocking those acronyms.  The Philafornians killed it in Round

Eight Years of Never Starting on Time at the TRAILHEAD!
The Radness That Is Brecken

Eight years, people. EIGHT YEARS. Where has the time gone? And how have we all not managed to kill each other?If I think back to the very, very fist GWD@TH I hosted, I never would have imagined I'd still be here today. No, I had dreams and goals and aspirations way beyond the scope of the Trailhead, yet here I remain.My then co-host Louis, after hosting for a mere year or so before he quit, made me promise that I wouldn't give up my hosting duties. We were sitting on the rooftop at Noodles, probably eating Sriracha with a spoon. "People like you, Brecken," he said. "They respond to you well. Don't quit."See, then, as has always

It's hard to be humble when you're so fucking smart...

The Radness That Is Brecken has been a quiz mistress since Aug. 2007. Yeah, that's a long fucking time. It is said the only way to stop her is to kill her, and, really, good luck with that.

When not belittleing you on a mic, Brecken is busy hating people (see her neck tattoo), and really not caring about much... except GWD, Trailhead, her pets, and beer.

She lives her life like the Arthur Balfour quote: "Nothing matters very much, and few things matter at all."

Pet peeves include people that yawn without covering their mouth, those that say "WHAT?" instead of "Pardon?", and people that accuse Miss B of being a bad pet owner. That shit will get you punched in the mouth. Seriously. Ask anybody.

Check out her other writing misadventures at Writing As I Write. You know you want to, so stop being all douchy about it.

And please remember: much like the Wu-Tang Clan, Brecken ain't nothing to fuck with.

The Hard Goodbye
Patsquatch

When you are friends with someone there are moments in which you realize that as much as it might suck for you, their happiness outweighs your own. Like when one of your best friends moves away to follow her dreams with her amazing boyfriend and will go on to wonderful things. It is awesome, it is great, and it really sucks for you because you won’t have them around anymore. I am at one such moments in which my friend Jessica leaves tomorrow to go to LA. It is awesome, and I am so happy for her but it really sucks for me because I will miss her so much. I bring it up here because we met at quiz five years ago and it has been a constant in our friendship so it is fitting that her last

We Want Naked Justice!
TheHypnotoad

Quite the night at Warehouse with a few wild characters in attendance for the evening, but we had quite a few teams which is awesome to see! I think fall seems to be quizzing season. Round one was all acronyms in which I think some of us were surprised to learn that the automated robot that reads all our password has a name, or at least I did. Cool new format for the music round, with two artists doing battle, which given recent events could totally be a recurring format. The clear consensus after round three is that they came up with an awesome idea for Naked Justice, and that we would all totally watch it. I think it'd be fun to have a quiz some night that is just "Name all the things

You Can’t Pronounce Your Own Team Name?

Oh well, then I’m sure as hell not gonna try. That was the gist of my conversation with Pick A New Team Name after round 3 tonight when I went to take their picture. Pneumonaltramicroscopicdoobyshoobydosomethingsomething was the team name they chose, but they were good natured about their silly choice.   Last week I decided that my blog would be a journal of my life, but then I got sidetracked and actually talked about quiz.

Two years into this biz, and I am loving being Quizmistress at Lumpy's Downtown on Thursdays.

Come hang out with me at Lumpy's Downtown  for more exciting tidbits on the life of Sarah 'Jo' Newhall. That's right, 'Jo'.
