Talk About Method Quizzing…
Jimmy Williams

Many teams agreed with me that it was a challenging quiz last night. Scores were lower, though I think this was due in part to having no extra double rounds, and the presence of a 50/50 round. It was also an evenly matched night with a tight spread. Round 1 (on movie synopses that rhymed with the titles) was, as is often the case, a bit softer than the other rounds. Only two points were missed in total. Tonight’s Round 2 changed things up by having quizzers name two artists of two songs that share a word in their names. It might be easier to name artists than songs, but in this case some of the artists were more obscure, so it evened out. After adjusting for it being a double

A Night to Remember....
AdrianTrevino

What happens when you wake up angry and have to go to work? Well, if you're me, the universe (or random chance, specifically) doesn't let you get to be angry. Why? Because, in my particular case, you come to work and find a letter on your desk that basically confirms the Illuminati. Well, not really; it was actually just a letter from a disturbed individual, and included all the classic disturbed individual markings: an opening paragraph that sounds like it was written by a completely stable individual, and then it starts talking about diseases being transmitted by phone. Not, like, from picking up the receiver and someone sneezed on

OH GOSH, THERE'S SUPPOSED TO BE SOMETHING EXTREMELY FUNNY HERE, BUT I CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING FUNNY TO PUT HERE, OH GOSH OH GOSH, WHAT AM I DOING I CAN'T COMPUTER TODAY.

 

Anyways! I love QMing, it beats the living HELL out of my day job; I play guitar and absolutely love Death Metal, and I like wearing cuban shirts and smoking cigars and watching Star Trek. I also like making dumb jokes.  I tend to stay towards the middle of the road when it comes to... well, anything. I also do a lot of referential humor, so this only helps but serve that purpose. And the purpose of having a night to go to a bar to drink. Yes.

 

Well.

 

Good on 'ya.

Headlines are Hard
Patsquatch

It was an intimate night at quiz with a cozy group of regulars but that didn’t mean that the competition wasn’t on. Teams were largely on fire all night long posting huge scores and dominating individual rounds. It was kind of nice to have a tighter group tonight after some pretty large crowds the past few weeks. I like both the big nights with lots of teams and the smaller nights with fewer teams. I just like to be there with the quizzers. As good as the quiz was as a whole, Round 6 was not happy fun times for me as it was the Language Belemmering in which each question had a world translated from its native tongue which matched the area we were asking about. It is a well

Josh Can't Say English Words - Lets Do A Round On Foreign Words
Josh Prime

Hey Geeks, What a great quiz we had tonight! There was a large number of newbies tonight, including most of our second place team: Josh Prime and His Shitty Harry Potty Fanfic. Special welcome to Erin, Lian and Christa who managed to place second tonight with Kirk on their team. This, even though they were the team with the most shameful performance in the 50-50 round. The object was to tell me if it was a fact/quote about Paul Ryan or Paul Giamatti. Apparently, Kirk planned to read up on them but then let his actual job get in the way. A lesson learned there. I watched Adam Ruins Everything last night. What

Hey Friends, I'm Josh Prime and I am from the most hated state in the country, New Jersey (seriously, they did studies). Whatever, I don't have to pump my own gas and never make left turns so... deal with it. Sometimes I mispronounce things and blame being from Jersey too, maybe that's why people hate the state. Aside from my Jersey pride, I am all about pop culture and video games (Nick Arcade anyone?... Anyone?). I keep suggesting a round on 90's Nickelodeon, I want to see everyone rocking out to the All That Theme song - remember when that was a thing? It's been real, it's been fun, its been real fun. See ya at the quiz.

Safety Fourth?! Ha! Safety is for the Weak!
Stefi

Here's a fun story about safety. I used to keep a zippo. The guy I was with at the time also kept one and naturally we kept zippo fluid round-a-bouts for refilling. We kept the zippo fluid in the glove box of my car, which dude usually drove at the time leaving me in the passenger's seat with a bottle of zippo fluid essentially in my lap. "One of these days the car is going to catch fire and this is going to explode in my lap." I stated, finishing filling the second zippo as he drove. "The car's not going to catch fire." He said. "Cars catch fire all the time, especially old cars that don't get a lot of service. I see that shit on the side of the road almost

I'm cooler than the backside of the pillow. If my rhymes were short, I'd be that midget from Willow. I really am smarter than the everage bear, but will most likely be mauled to death by a dumb one. I only look like and aging, balding, pudgy white guy because I play one on TV. Sadly, my agent thought it would be a good idea for me to be on TV all the time.

I am into pina coladas and getting caught in the rain. I quit the long walks on the beach stuff becasue I kept getting crabs. I do lots of desktop design and music. I only get paid for one. I used to really be into art, but I kept eating the Crayons...except for the black ones, which I'm sure taste like icky licorice.

Answers to FAQ about me:

1. Yes

2. An arrest is not necessarily a conviction

3. The doctor said the rash will clear up soon. The voices may stick around for a while.

4. Simpsons, Futurama, Venture Brothers, 30 Rock and No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain

4.5 Two kids and one wife, or vice versa

5. Your favorite band sucks

Now go away! I'm trying to hit on your mom.

If I Were Billy Corgan, I Would Be Singing a Song about 1987…
Elise

Tonight at Geeks who Drink, we listened to a GLORIOUS playlist from 1987 as the background for our equally glorious quiz, and if I might be so bold, I would say we should all sign our names across my heart, because boy, was that lovely.       Even with rounds on Paul and Paul, and a close quiz through every round, the power of the joker was revealed, and a good time was had by all.       I had a supremely productive Thursday, and thus our Quiz tonight was just the continuation, as I get ready to head once again to the land of champions (we are all champions!) – the lovely state of

Elise (n): a real life muppet.

Hailing from the great state of Ohio (O-H...I-O!), Elise has lived in New Mexico for 10 years now, and as such, believes that the nickname the "Land of Entrapment" applies. In the 'possibly never getting out' way, not the 'illicit solicitation' way.

Things Elise can't live without: Diet Coke, good grammar, an exorbitant number of shoes, the Muppets and other various Jim Henson creations, a Downbeat on the One, and the never-ending yet enjoyable search for the perfect Bordeaux. Practice makes perfect...

More often than not, she can name that tune in 2 notes, Tom.

I just watched the first Matrix movie in its entirety and now I'm halfway through 'The Matrix Reloaded,' with somewhere around a 0% chance that I won't be finishing it. Tomorrow is going to be an exceedingly rough day tomorrow if I can't get to bed before 'Matrix Revolutions'.....But before I tap out, let's break down each of these movies and why The Matrix Trilogy was so amazing. The Matrix: Can you believe this movie was made in 1999?! It's 17 years old! 17 years! And yet it's still so, so good. Despite Keanu Reeves' acting. How does it not even feel dated? The

The only thing that will push me further into the weekend is a three day weekend. Who here is ready for Labor Day? Celebrate the working man, grilling, and the last final drink of summer. Already the air is turning crisp and I am ready for fall attire. It is time to break out pumpkin everything, cranberry cardigans, and our favorite big beers.

  Lovely weather we're having tonight, wouldn't you say? Yeah, me either! But I am glad that y'all braved the brief (but heavy) showers we had to come play with me.

You can count on me to start you off with a bang, and y'all didn't fail to deliver! Y'all killed it on the “Loan Words” audio round, too, and I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of perfect (and almost perfect) scores in Round 3.

Let’s get down to brass tacks because this is the 4th quiz night I’ve done in a row and I am in serious need of smoking a tremendous bowl and watching cartoons in my underpants an early bedtime over some chamomile tea and a book of fine literature.   Boko Harambe took first with 87 points. They are also my favorite team name. And since Harambe is dead and can no longer be my spirit animal, even though he can be my literally a spirit spirit animal, this team, Boko Harambe, are now my spirit animal.

Like an Olympic athlete pulling a super intense face from 10 meters up, let’s dive right in. Just a few common misconceptions to get out of the way… Even though Outkast is from the dirty South, the song is not called “Hey Y’all”. And everybody was Benjamin Buttoning all over this bitch… fortunately Syfy has not green lighted that one. Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin look like one another. False, one is bloated because he’s soaked in Vodka, the other is just bloated. In Round 1 I had a few folks agasp when I implied that all the viewers of 60 Minutes are elderly and brittle.

Parry's Pizza What is up! thank you so much for making me, a lowly substitute QM feel so welcome. Every one seemed to have a great time, but in the end it was the Everything Coming Up Millhouse team who was victorious. There were some difficult rounds but all teams surpassed my expectations on the foreign language round. A special shoutout to the guy sitting at the bar next to me (I'm sorry I never caught your name) for helping keep the players in line. Not that they need to be kept in line, but he did offer to be the official Quiz bouncer, so thanks for that.  I hope to see every one back next week!

BUT SERIOUSLY. My last name. Y’all have no idea. (Okay, maybe some of you do) Growing up with a weird last name that can be made into terrible nicknames and is difficult to spell is a fucking nightmare. Dudesek. It’s hard to spell (I have perfected the art of phonetically spelling it in terms that EVERYONE can understand, yet PEOPLE STILL GET IT WRONG. I get mail for “Kelly Dudeski” at least once a month), kids were so pointlessly mean and stupid about it growing up (Dude sex. Yes. You’re hilarious. Go home.), and after 26 years, I was SO ready for a change. One of the reasons I love my now-husband is because his last name is Peterson. You think

It wouldn’t be a quiz without some stunning audio issue, and turns out that all plugs need to be as firmly planted into whatever we call the place they are planted into (the female end, I think, in this super sexy and extremely heteronormative terminology) and that if you even look at them they pull out (wink face emoji) and everyone is deafened.   So that happened.   A nice thing that happened is that when I got here, the manager told me that the guy I’m subbing for assured her I would be cool solely based on the fact that I work

I'm an archaeologist. The Shroud of Turin dates to ca. AD 1300, evolution is really real but more complex than you probably know, and no, I don't have a particularly strong interest in identifying the thing you dug up out of your backyard that you think is totally a Native American burial item/pirate gold/Roman pottery. And no, I don't dig up dinosaurs, but I did once read this other book, by a guy named Bakker*, and that plus repeated viewings of Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones inspired adolescent me to get into the "boot sciences" as a certain Norwegian archaeology professor calls them. Now I'm living the dream.

On a typical quiz the highest score possible is 96. Every venue and every quiz is different but from my experience, put yourself in the high 70s and you have a good shot at winning. Miss only six questions on the whole quiz? Well that's something to write home about. Except for tonight, when What's Your Poo Telling You? missed six and and finished in third! Surely the team that only missed four questions won, right? The old strangers We Missed You, Bryton. Nope, second. The Guesstapo missed but two questions the whole night. Frankly, that is insane.
