You are History's Greatest Master Cord!
Steve C

There are many great mysteries to life. The nature of life and death, the Sphinx, just what in the hell is up with that cord that connects to the sound system at Sedgwicks? No matter! All our audio rounds worked because even our arch nemesis (that damn cord) knows this shit is important. Round one, wherein we changed one letter in an ad slogan to change it completely, pleased Lindsay greatly as she has the sense of humor of a twelve year old and she got to say the word fart into a microphone. Check that nonsense off the old bucket list.    Steve's playlist tonight

Accept One Substitute
Ho-Ho the Wonderdog!

Gooood morning, Cortland Quizzers! Quizmaster Hobert here, subbing in for Quizmaster Lior. Hey, guys, I just want to say thanks for being cool last night. I know the usual tradition (if TV and movies taught me anything, which they did. They taught me everything) is to be spontaneously cruel to substitutes. The classic bits are of course telling a substitute teacher your name is something hilarious like Seymour Butts or Mike Hunt, not taking the Vice-President very seriously, and opening a container of margarine just so you can whisper to its contents "I can believe you're not butter, you tub of shit." But you guys didn't stoop to that level. In fact, you were

In Which a Stranger Judges You Harshly
Bobby

So my friend Sara Alfieri has been living in the barren, buffalo wingless wasteland of London, England for the last few months and is a bit homesick. I was talking to her about our Geeks Who Drink pub quiz last night and she wanted to hear the team names you guys came up with. I sent her the list and she decided to run through each name, giving her thoughts and ranking them in terms of goodness:1. Bone Thugs N Hermione – this album needs to be released. Asap. Call Emma Watson. 2. Trumplestiltskin – maybe if someone yells this at him

You Farted In Trader Joe's
OG QMotY

You were the tall brunette that farted in the bread section last night. I was the tall guy next to you that looked over and asked "Was that you?"  You quickly replied "No! That wasn't me!" You almost seemed insulted I would even ask. As the stink grew, you tried to deny your flatulence but it was evident. I tried to get rid of the stench by waving two loaves of ciabatta bread, but your stink was no match. You stormed off in an angry manner; I was bummed. You are beautiful even if you are a liar and fart like a Clydesdale. I'd totally love to meet up some time.  God I love missed connection ads. Speaking of missed connections, congrats to Rumpleforeskin on

Not a Fan of Alex's Party?
AlexRice

Ain't no party like an Alex party. That was proven by Wednesday night's winning team, made up of my parents, grandma and best friend. Alex's Party totaled 70 points on the night, beating out Not a Fan (surprisingly, this team didn't include any of my family members who aren't fond of me) by five points. The best fart of waking up is when you eat flesh, the other shite meat, right? It's ginger lickin' good and results in 99.44% puke. I'm 99.44% positive about that. Thanks for playing last night! I hope to see you next week!

You Don't Have to Wait until My Birthday to Buy Me a Drink
Quizler

Hi guys! Remember that question a few weeks ago about the feminist book where the woman throws herself into the ocean, called The Awakening and one team guessed that it was called “The Period”? I’d never heard of that book until then and coincidentally I had to read it at work this week. It’s a pretty good read. I recommend it. I think you guys did pretty well this week. Our winners, Vagrant Mischaracterization, got a whopping 87 points and were the only team to score more than 8 points in the special round 3. Second place, Kanye West and Jesus 2020, did quite well and were still more than ten

College teacher by day, Pub Quiz Queen by night.  I love puns and portmanteaus and team names that include my name.  Some say people hate hearing the sound of their own voice but it seems that may not be true for me.

My quiz night includes song requests, dancing, and if you're good, chugging contests.

NH is my childhood homestate and after trying several other places, including San Diego, and South Korea, I came back to the 'Shire.  Help me figure out why!  

Maybe you want my credentials? BA in English from PSU, MA in Linguistics from SDSU.  Does that mean I love to party?  More like, I love to be the smartest person in the room full of party school people.  It hasn't happened yet.

Even though I'm a linguist, I'm not the most cunning. My quiz teammates always had to guess the answers I "knew" from random clues I'd give them.  There was a lot of "ya know?  the guy with the hair?" going on.  Suprisingly, this method led us to victory on many happy occasions.

When you come out to the Stone Church for quiz night, chat me up!

Alex's Virginity = Lost
AlexRice

I don't want to know what it means to win one's virginity, so I guess I'm glad that Alex's Virginity placed second in Tuesday night's quiz. You could say my virginity was lost. My best friend, fiancee and parents scored 66 points on the night, which was four points behind champions Steve Holt and their 70. Tuesday's quiz was certainly one for the sports geek, as Rounds 6 and 7 were dedicated to various athletics and Rounds 1 and 8 both had their share of sports questions. Thanks for playing! I hope to see you next week!

Bone Nation Forever!
LexSimpson

Yoakum, Texas. I had to go to Yoakum-goddamn-Texas. Population 6,000. Not a bad town. Quaint. Farmery. Etc. Had a man publicly say evolution is wrong without a trace of irony to a large group of men, women, and children. Terrifying. For it’s tininess, it had some nicer houses, which begs the question: how the hell do you end up in Yoakum, Texas? What could possibly possess you to live there, outside of being born there? Middle of nowhere, Texas, with the one Pizza Hut. Maybe I’m too cynical. Good work, “Various Presidential Sex Puns,” whose names included: LBJ: The Mexican Porn Star (think about it) James & K Poke I’mma Bama

Pour Some Out For My Dead Homie Captain Phil

So I'm sitting here in my back bedroom feeding my reptile horde and reflecting on tonight's quiz cause, well, I never really know what to say on these bloggie thingies. So I asked Senorita Conchita the Bearded Lady what she thought I should say. You know, as far as bearded dragons go, she wasn't really helpful. But she's cute. So cute in fact, that I added a picture of her cuteness to the little slide show, just to distract you from my shoddy writing skills. But any who... I was asked monday if I'd be able to help cover tonight's quiz and I was like "Shit yeah, I heart that place!" cause, furreals, I heart this place.

Lucky Stiffed my Dog's Bollocks!
The Quizmaster General

Another amazingly fun night at Wicks, with an all new Round 3 to chew on. Kinda fun, right?! Anyhow, time to keep this short and sweet as my 5-day Labor Day weekend kicks in tomorrow at 10am and it's already past midnight.   Recap! Round 1 had my inner 12 year old giggling, and while no team scored a perfect, plenty of you got 7s. We then moved on to Round 2, where the Lucky Stiffs and Rogue Squadron both scored 28 points each by jokering their round. Then Round 3's weirdo round of All or In Between saw some oddly high scores (Dog's Bollocks

Yes, the mustache is real.

Hey everybody!  My name is Richard Rasner, but I used to be known as "The Quiz Pimp" (a nickname given to me on my first day ever on the job as a GWD QM.) I'm the guy up on the old-fashioned microphone calling out your quiz and playing awesomely terrible music during the scoring breaks.  These days a new venue change means a new nickname, so now I'm apparently The Quizmaster General.

When I'm not Quizmastering my day job is as a fine art nude photographer under the moniker "Unique Nudes" -- That's right, my day to day life is taking pictures of naked people all over the world. And if that doesn't make you hate me enough, I also photograph live music, and spend my evenings hanging out backstage with rock stars such as Billy Idol, NIN, Papa Roach and more.  You can check out my Facebook if you don't believe me, but sadly it's all true.  I'm not just a geek, I'm one of the rare super-cool geeks.

So why be a Quizmaster?  Because I love quizzes and I love all of you.  That's right, without my players I would be nothing.  Your amusing team names and crazy banter keep me coming back week after week.  So keep coming! Keep talking to me! And win those fabulous prizes!

-- Quizmaster out.

The next UN Secretary General: Chuck Norris' Beard
Quizmaster Zero: Scoobses Edition

New round themes are usually a toss-up as to whether or not ze quizzers will like them.  On the one hand, it's usually round 3 that gets the new-ish treatment, and let's face it, if it wasn't something new it'd be either a speed round or a 50/50 round, which I know you guys just love.  Tonight's effort produced mixed results score-wise, but I didn't get the usual waves of hatred in my direction so I suppose it was alright.  It was a bit of a bitch to grade, but you guys are worth it <insert cheesy smile and thumbs up, here>.  Maybe they'll do it again sometime soon.

No Sleep Make Eric Something something.

So I had a case of insomnia last night, add to that a 7am dentist session to put in a filling and no naps mean Eric is up a whole lot today. On the plus side, my tried and true gamers were there and I think they take some odd delight in watching me biff and boff my work. Someday I kind of hope they show up and chat "Do your Job!" to me.  I will of course, I don't want to get fired. IT was a lovely time of course, even being tired and recovering from numb face. The teams went in head first and played some gosh darn quiz!   Star Wars 30: State of the Union took first place, good on them. Second was left to a tie breaker, which was won

You must be present to win, and yes that's a dumb question!
Colonel Chase

Yes, there are such things as dumb questions (especially right after I say the thing you ask about). But luckily I had eight rounds of smart questions for you this week at Charlie’s! Tonight we had so many ways to win big! First place was taking home great Seahawks tickets, and we had a drawing for another pair of tickets! First, a round on some slogans that have been slightly adjusted. Some of you did know that the best fart of waking up is a cup of coffee though. Next we had a few ladies in round two, the sonic bonanza audio round! Eight songs, four ladies, one bad ass round. Thanks for stopping by, Jenny, Cecilia, Jane and Sally! We debuted a new thought

Retired Colonel, full-time Quizmaster.

The story of Quizmaster Chase is a long and arduous one. One that stands the test of time and also serves as a cautionary beacon to others. 

Quizmaster Chase grew up deep in the heart of a pre-Twilight Olympic Peninsula. A land of trees and mountains and water, and apparently also a land of quizmasters. At that age when most children do, Quizmaster Chase left the family homestead and headed towards Seattle with nothing more than a napsack and a dream. 

Dazzled by the bright lights, the country kid made his way through University and a professional career before finally achieving the highest rank in the military, that of Colonel. Once a Colonel, Quizmaster Chase was able to live his dream of traveling across the Pacific to Japan on a goodwill mission, as well as serve as a non-official envoy to Europe during a brief tour just prior to the United Kingdom's General Election of 2010. Quizmaster Chase also serves as a senior advisor on beverage matters to several local governemnt entities in the state of Hawai'i. 

While residing near Seattle's Lake Union (for a quick seaborne escape if need be) Quizmaster Chase enjoys the fine world of microdistilleries and their wares, the interplay between water and land, and his trustworthy dog Jack.

Update: most of this is not accurate anymore, but Chase is even more awesome now that he runs Olympia.

Hey, Geeks!

My name is TJ. I live in Tempe with two roommates and 6 1/2 pets. My interests include music (Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age, no country), fantasy football (I hate the off season. Cards and Ravens fan), beer (Fat Tire), board and card games (too many to mention!), and food (Thai and Peruvian among my favs).

I'll tell the name story here, so when people ask me at the venue I can point them to this page. Smart thinking, G! My name is TJ d Gi. I was born with just two letters for a first name, as rather than name me Trojan Joe after my grandfather, my parents decided to let me "pick" my name when I was of age. What they didn't expect is that I changed my last name to Gi (pronounced "G" like true gangsta). I have recently begun using the middle name d'Oubleyou, but have not yet made that legal. When I do my name will be TJ d'Oubleyou Gi. Which is 2/3 invented but 3/2 as cool as any other name you know.

I got involved with GwD after the bar where I was running karaoke decided cheap was better than good, and work a day job where I mindlessly press buttons on a computer all day. I love running the Pub Quiz because it's my only social interaction in most weeks, and it's so much fun meeting all of you and having a few hours of fun with you every week.

Thanks for viewing my page, and I look forward to seeing you at Quiz!

TJ

What if Those Were REAL Ad Slogans?
Cap'n Brendan

Tonight’s round “Reach Out and Torch Someone” on slightly modified ad slogans got me thinking… What if those slogans were real? What products would they be for? Let’s hypothesize! The Best Fart of Waking Up. Sounds like the perfect ad campaign for Taco Bell’s breakfast line, don’t you think? Eat Flesh. The zombie option here is too obvious – it’s been done. And werewolves aren’t really a product, unless you’re talking about Taylor Lautner. So let’s go with a new slogan for the united meats against the scourge of vegetarianism! The Other Shite
