Summer's out for Summer!
The Warden

               Well, I think tonight was an Omen that Summer is over. And I am for one, am happy to hear that. I’ve never enjoyed Summers, and let me tell you why. SWEATING: I sweat just standing. Seriously, doing nothing. Pit stains, boob sweat, dripping down my forehead. I carry a rag to wipe my sweat away. I hate it. It’s uncomfortable and doesn’t always look great when I’m serving people their beers. I work pretty much outside, so I can’t avoid it. TV IS (pretty much) SHIT: Nothing to watch, and when there is, there’s not much of it. Thankfully now we have

Extra! Extra! Muse all about it!
LexSimpson

Gene Wilder died. "I said, good day sir" is the best referential representation of that event I've heard so far. Good onyou guys. To the muse.Can Kanye West really be said to have given a "speech"? "Extended Rant," maybe. "Improvised one-man show," likely. The city of Christchurch was suggested by a man named John Godley. Seems to add up. You figure Elon Musk could just build a woman clone in the time he's been eying this broad. Leave it to a nerd to go after an actress. While reading the Green Zone question, I came up with "Pappa's got a new Bagdad." I don't know what to do with it, but there you go. Something about the Captain & Tennille will always be funny to me.

A Taco Salad is Still a Salad, Right?
Cap'n Brendan

I don’t usually do salads when I’m out at quiz. Sure, they’re a great way to eat healthy, get your veggies, and enjoy some fresh cuisine, but when you’re drinking they don’t do a very good job of soaking up that beer. Plus they’re often more expensive than anything else on the menu, and don’t fill you up nearly as well. I went through a kick where I was focused on trying to lose some weight, so I brought salads to work for lunch every day. I thought I was being healthy. What I realized a few weeks later, when I hadn’t lost any weight, was that they were leaving me hungry a couple of hours later and I was snacking more. The net result? I may as

Fortunately for my linguistic aptitude, the writers decided to spare me another week of speaking the dreaded A-word.  Unfortunately for my physical condition, I was stuck with a new set of ailments last night, but neither headaches nor hives nor broken bruised digits shall stay the quizmaster from the swift completion of his appointed rounds.  (The last calamity was thanks to a projector screen that decided to collapse on my thumb.)   The visual round all about bald and buzzed actresses was a hit, although I wished I could’ve given extra points to teams that knew

Bonking on a Penny Farthing

Being a quizmaster who randomly graduated in July has its perks. One of those perks is that I was sitting at the bar of Blackbird Kitchen enjoying delectable ahi poke and prepping for quiz on Monday night while all the less fortunate Sac State students were schlepping their $300 books for miles to the god forsaken dusty overflow parking lot while some other student drove slowly behind them stalking them for their shitty spot. Also not schlepping books were teams Staff Infection, BK, and Slapnuts McDoodle. Each team came with their own strengths. Staff Infection had some dude who they kept hidden in a back room who would randomly pop out and give them answers. Slapnuts

In which we consider Steven Sagal writing a political memoir.
Ozzimo or The Captain

Did you know that sometimes artists lie about their work? It's true! We even had a whole round on the idea that some musicians blatantly lie to us in song. This Quizmaster is not going to lie to you. Just like the rest of Tacoma, I'm going to acquaint you with the sobering truth of the world and tell you to buck up when you start sobbing. I consider it a much better option. The difficult truth beats a comforting lie every time. With school coming up, the difficult truth for my wife is that work is starting again soon. Sure she gets the summer off but she also has to teach your shitty kids so, give her a bit of credit. I only have to teach your shitty adult friends

I was born a poor black child... hold on... nope thinking of someone else. I was born in Suburbia. Like, smack dab. My hometown of Puyallup is famous for 3 things.

1.  1. Before Prohibition it was the hops capital of the world. (Thanks a lot Puritans!! Grrrr) But this just goes to show that when they say there's something in the water around here, they're talking about beer.

2.  2. The guy who played the Dad on "A Christmas Story" graduated from Puyallup High School and is, as far as I know, the most famous person to grow up here.

3.  3. It is the current home of your humble Quizmaster, Ozzimo.

Anyway, here's the quick and dirty. I'm class of 01 from Puyallup High School; I left high school thinking I wanted to teach Choir as that was basically the extent of my knowledge. When I got to college I found out how little these people make and how hard they had to train to do it. I immediately changed my major to Political Science and have never looked back. This is one of the main reasons not to argue with me when you think I’m wrong. I'm trained to win a fight, even if the other person is 6 kinds of right.

I started quizzing when a coworker of mine turned me on to the quiz and mentioned GWD was looking for a Tacoma quizmaster. I went through the pre-req community college course, the ritual hazing, the bleeding/burning of saint if I ever left the family, and the chopping off of my ring finger on my right hand. I'm told this is all legit and there was no need to look it up to check.

You can find me at the Forum on Tuesdays at 8:30. I highly suggest ordering the Juicy Lucy while you're there.

But have no fear, I found an extra gear and we made it happen right on schedule. There were a lot more teams than I'd ever have expected for a new quiz, but it was an awesome night of quiz. We had a super-tight game throughout the evening and only a few points separated those that won prizes and those that did not. Since I don't quite know what the vibe of the crowd is, I played what I wanted to hear.

Good evening ladies and germs! It was another sweltering night out on the Luke's patio, but the cold adult beverages (for everyone else, that is), delicious food, and of course getting to spend another night of Geeks Who Drink madness with my wonderful quiz bunnies made it all worthwhile! So let's get on with the quiz! Current events are apparently hot topics among my teams, because we got off to a great start with our round on Recently In Stuff. Our first audio round was just too easy for my quizzers tonight, with MANY taking advantage of their jokers on this double point round! The “Half in the Bag” round was equally as easy, and definitely helped to boost some

You know, it doesn't take a lot to make a Geeks Who Drink quiz night utterly badass. 98% of the work is already done, and the quizzers typically provide the other 12%. Or whatever. No, YOU failed math, shut up. My point (and I do have one) is, quiz nights at Flight come out of the box fully loaded with asskicking radness and kung fu grip, no assembly required. But tonight... Well, tonight was just that little bit of extra goodness, like when you think you've eaten all of your Orange Chicken and you're digging around in the admittedly delicious but not-Orange-Chicken fried rice that's leftover and you strike something firm and fleshy under the pile and find one magical, delightful

We had an awesome night of quiz at Cleats Bar and Grill EAST, where we had 11 teams participating for the fun and the glory. Thanks to everyone for coming week after week and putting up with my gentle harassment, and thanks for the bewildered new teams who just rolled with it. I've been on a bit of a Stephen King binge this year. I've read several of his novels prior to this year, but I've really sunk into his stellar writing this year. I've absolutely torn through some of his classics and a few of his new ones. The Stand has become one of my favorite books of all

CANDLE!!
Mike Cabellon

Shouting out an answer, apropos of nothing, and especially when the shouter is aware of the rules, will never not be funny to me.   Second place laughs go to the team that somehow managed to mom-ify all the song names into almost-correct-answers, like Michael Jackson's "Man On The Moon," Blink 182's "What's My Name Again," and of course, who could forget that Nirvana classic "Don't Have A Gun."   Score-wise, I think this might've been the closest game we've had at The Wheelhouse yet, with perennial champs With A Hundred Points only holding onto their lead by a measly singular point. On the other end of the spectrum, Where's

When Does the Corn Come Around Again

When Does Corn Come Around Again?     This was a question that was pondered by many a quizzer as they were thinking about tonight’s Round #4: The Shit Hits the Fan.  How long exactly does food take to pass through your body — aka, when do you see that corn on the cob again in and entirely different context from when it was first slathered in butter on your plate?     That and a few other questions this round came with a caution from me - don’t take that next bit of wonderful Wicked Hop food just yet if you can get a bit quest from medical, specifically poop related stuff.

We had a little hitch last week as quiz was canceled (for an unavoidable reason we can't share, unfortunately, though don't worry -- everybody is doing fine), but this week the fans at Surfside Tap Room came back with a vengeance. We had a room full of teams jumping in to play, and the competition was hot and heavy with quizzers guessing questions left and right, all fighting for the top two spots. Quizzers especially enjoyed the second musical round, where they had to name artists and titles of songs with lies in them, and round 7, with audio clips that provided hints for answers that turned out to be all X-Men related. Most of our quizzers thought that U2's song was called "Cyclops,"
