Warmer Still
Ben

Greetings once again quiz blog readers, This week saw another trainee come and go, in Chris, a soon to be alternate quiz sub. For his first time, he rocked it. Kudos Chris. While trainees being trained at my bar is nothing out of the ordinary lately, Age of Consent not taking first place was. Napoleon Boner Party edged them out for the number one spot, and actually had them beat for a good few rounds. Some weird categories tonight definitely had a hand in shaking things up, like Ellen Page movies. It's been unseasonably warm this week, and the especially populated bike rack was a testament to that fact. Even if it

Be comfortable with who you are
Jeremy "Murder She Wrote" C

I don't know if you knew this about Quizmasters, but we love to go out for karaoke. Believe it or not, we're the most comfortable behind the microphone, even if we're introverted most other times. It is an interesting dichotomy. I was out for karaoke this weekend and something set me in a rage. I had just got done singing Me Too by Meghan Trainor because I enjoy the song and it's fun. When I got off the stage, some hipster douche says to me, you've got big balls. For what? Singing a simple pop song? No sir, the actual challenge for me was singing Don't Stop Me Now by Queen earlier in the evening. What really set me off was this expectation that as men, we aren't supposed to sing songs by women

Hello, my name is Jeremy and I'm a geek who drinks. What does it mean to be a geek who drinks? I have random knowledge on things like music. I can quote Pulp Fiction like it's no one's business. On my GPS Darth Vader tells me where to go. That's the fun part. The bad part is I also drink. When I drink, I write blogs that have the word "fuck" in it a lot. I make up stories of things that happened in my mind. I also delete my own bio and really don't remember doing it. Thankfully though, I never sucked dick for coke. That was Bob Saget. 

The moral of the story, it's ok to be a geek who drinks, in fact I encourage it. I encourage you to come down to my venue on a Monday and drink it out with me. I'll quiz you, you give me right answers, and don't be a dick and shout anything out.

STEPMOTHER!!!
Jake

Well, it was nice night here at Henry’s as we had a few new teams in JAM on it! and Robert DROP TABLES; (Semicolon) which as I learned, is quite possibly the smartest team name I may have ever encountered. But the quiz – Dang that quiz! It was tough tonight! Round 1 featured answers with feelings. Gross. I heard about those once, but ever since my priest told me to keep feelings buried deep down inside me, I’ve done just that. I’m now an impenetrable wall of stoicism. Round 2 featured song with annoying vocal riffs. Speaking of which,

In a land far, far away, in a time in the not-too-distant future, in an era dominated by dragons, one man was born - nay - created - nay - FORGED from the fires of Valhella (which is part Valhalla, part... well, you get it), and came upon this earth seeking geeks, not for punching, but in order to be a part of their geekery. He searched far, wide, deep, across, shallow and even in the fourth dimension for eons until he came upon the great city of Portland, where the geeks flowed like PBR. "Get thee to a nerdery!" they cried, and it was here that the man struck his mighty staff into the earth with the force of a million bluebirds carrying a thousand hippopotami carrying twenty-three tanks, and the earth opened upon to him, releasing the demonspawn of Australia, which all happened to be drunk upon Foster's. After defeating them with his vorpal sword of might, he descended upon Portland (and related metropolitan area) to take his place at the throne of geeks. He made slaves of many, including Jake, who runs pub quizzes!

Whoa, dude, Whoa
Sean Franson

The basement smelled funny. It wasn't the first thing to notice, but he did. He was running for his life, away from that woman with the knife. He never expected to be here, or running for his life at all, but sometimes we don't choose our fates. Nevertheless, the basement smelled funny. Like he hadn't been the first one down here, maybe. Lived in.   Strange though, that the furniture was pristine, and the food still in its wrappers. Non-perishable stuff; crackers, processed cheeses, peanut butter. Arranged perfectly, in pyramids. No fruit, nothing healthy at all. But he could survive down here for days, maybe weeks if he played his cards right. He didn't know how long

I'm so excited to be hosting Pub Quiz for Geeks who Drink! I moved to Portland 4 years ago with my wife, Gayle, to attend grad school at PSU. I've since earned a Master's Degree in Theater, with an emphasis on Performance. Hopefully I can fold some of that into rocking the mic like a vandal. Did that make me sound old? I feel old.

The One Without A Question On The Goonies!
Quizmaster Kris

We had a fun crowd tonight with a few new to the venue teams to make it an exciting night! Of course I think we dissapointed them all by not actually having a round on The Goonies and instead they got "Eight Quick Questions That Are Not About The Goonies". Each Answer (and one question) loosely linked to one of the greatest movies ever filmed in Astoria, OR (the other being Short Circuit). Both are classics of my childhood. Unsurprisingly, Hail To President Dave Kovic got a perfect score on that round. Speaking of Dave Kovic, you might remember him as the presidential impersonator turned preseident in the movie Dave.

  1. If you could be one for just 24 hours, what cereal box cartoon character would you be? Why?
    • Horratio Magellan Crunch (Captain Crunch). "Look at me, I'm the captain now"
  2. If you could have had the starring role in one film already made, which movie would you pick?
    • Rain Man, because I feel it's about where my acting skills are at.
  3. You were just given a yacht. What would you name it?
    • The Vulcanized Mallard (Rubber Ducky)
  4. If a movie was being made of your life and you could choose the actor/actress to play you, who would you choose and why?
    • Jonah Hill. Because, Jonah Hill.
  5. If you were to be on a reality TV show which one would you be on and why?
    • Amazing Race. I love to travel and I think I could make a serious run for the money.
  6. 2%, 1% or skim milk?
    • According to Ron Swanson, Skim Milk is water lying about being milk.
  7. Mayonnaise or Miracle Whip?
    • Mayo, because Miracle Whip is of the devil.
  8. If you could have a condiment dispensed from your navel, what would it be?
    • Ranch dressing... it would be so convenient and delicious.

Inaugural Quiz and Beer Garage Sale
Ellie

Welcome to the Geeks Who Drink world! Tonight was the inaugural quiz for Issaquah Brewhouse, and we had a great time! Our teams tonight were #Lexapro, Beer is Food, Axel Rogue, O’Trivia Newton John, and Relentless. A lot of the teams tonight were new to Geeks Who Drink and definitely got a good idea of how no two rounds are alike! Issaquah Brewhouse is also a pretty sweet spot! They were having a garage sale this weekend and were selling many of their beers by the caseload. Lots of people were coming in for the garage sale and taking their purchases out on hand carts; these are my kind of people! I myself am a semi-Issaquah kid! I grew up

Midnight Cider Anyone?

Winter is finally beginning to fade here in Portland, Oregon. Temperatures have been reasonable, rain has been mostly falling in the mornings. I was able to catch up with a friend in the Alberta Arts neighborhood of NE Portland tonight before finding my way to the lovely Rose & Thistle pub on Broadway for my weekly Quiz Master’ing responsibility. It can be very nice and even refreshing to reunite with people that are unique in our lives. Sometimes people we reunite with whom we’ve only known for a short while make more of an impression than people you’ve known for a decade.   When I walked into the

If the question is dance or die...they would choose die
Laura

The past two times there have been need for a dance off, people have opted to not dance. That's right. When given the chance to dance people are turning it down. My inner Jimmy Jr. is highly offended. But I should admit that I dance awkwardly to any music available. Elevator music. I'd dance to that. The theme to X-Files? I have danced to that. Random strangers ring tone? Fuck yeah. So basically, im asking you to bring your best dance moves and any ability you have to move beyond fear of dancing and just dance! Just find that one thing inside of you that says "fuck off" to being afraid of making a fool of yourself. Draw every ounce of brazen, cocky, "let's show these bitches whose

I found myself reflecting on the recent actions of the one known as The Doctor. Realizing how many lives he had saved, how much good he had done, i decided that there was only one thing that I could do to measure up; I needed to travel back in time to the year 2014 and become a quizmaster to help increase the general useless knowledge of the population. So here I am, Geeks of Fort Collins, to bring to you the knowledge of all space and time, at least the stuff that sort of matters.

The 44 That Got Away
JoeMills

Well I hope y’all had a wonderful Presidents’ Day.  I certainly did.  I slept in.  Went to yoga.  Got some pho.  Got some groceries.  Hosted Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz with y’all.  Beautiful weather today as we bask in the twilight of a habitable climate.  Warm days in February are certainly a treat now, though they foreshadow more ominous patterns to come.  We’ll look back on these days fondly.  Just as we now look back at our 44 previous presidents fondly.  We didn’t know how good we had it.   James Buchanan, however, is still a contender for worst POTUS ever.  Though I don’t

Lousy Manipulative Dog
Bryan (also named Bort)

At the end of quiz, I realized I had only used about $11 of my $25 bar tab, so I decided to take a Gourdough’s “Black Out” donut to-go. I get home, greet my wife and pop open my box of empty calories, when suddenly, I had a furry friend all up in my grill (Jesus, I should never say that again). My dog, Ilse, a chubby Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix, had caught a whiff of my fried dough buried in chocolate. I immediately tell her that it’s off limits. She’s a smart dog and she understands a lot of what I say, so immediately she goes into pout mode. She lets out a heavy

Dumb, but There's Still Dumber...
RobotNarwhal

Instead of going on about current events or Presidents’ Day or picking a nugget out of quiz, I’m feeling like going totally off script with this one.  In the spirit of schadenfreude, I figured we could all have a laugh by talking about dumb things people do to themselves.  I was inspired by a friend’s Facebook post from earlier today, wherein he mentioned he accidentally karate chopped himself in the throat while brushing lint off of his shoulder.  He hit himself so hard that he had to sit down and wait a few seconds before he could breath.   Once I was shaking a bottle of nail polish, and I turned my head just right and hit myself in the

  If it weren’t for puns we’d have no funs. What am I to do? I’m not sure, how bout you? I think that most people these days are trying to be the main character in a prince or princess from another world book. I think it has more to do with feeling that we have a destiny than it does with the idea of royalty. It’s hard to come to terms with existence. What’s the purpose of a porpoise? I don’t even think it’s individuality we seek, but value. Maybe that is why money has become our god. It is the only thing in this world that has a defined value, so we praise it as the thing we strive to be. Of course, like all gods, its word is greatly

Thats "four hundred and eleven" in layman's terms
The Quiz Queen

Whoa nelly, y’all! That was a wild and crazy night! Did we have fun or what?! WOOOOOOT!   When I first arrived on the scene, the place was packed with plebes and I was like “DID THEY CANCEL QUIZ AND NOT TELL ME?!” But no, apparently people really like going out to eat on President’s Day. I walked around to the teams that had found tables to let them know we’d be starting late, and as I walked past a table a kid piped up and said, “Excuse me, could I get some more napkins?” I cheerfully told him, “I am not a waitress!” and walked away. What a dope! At least he was polite!
