Night Number Three
Ian Kaplan

I am definitely falling in love with my new venue, Krypton Blue. It's an intimate thang, just a few teams and me. But even as it grows, it will stay intimate because we've got our own room and it's got that softness to it. Last night I was visited by quiz effing royalty. My wife and our friends were there, including the people I played Geeks Who Drink with way back when there were only two quizmasters in town. Also making an appearance was the incredibly smart Sarah and the incredibly camera-shy (and brilliant) Patricia. And some guy too. In the end, wife and friends beat out that other trio - as well as last weeks champs and Anything But Last. Ha. Haha. Sorry

Wherein You See How I Picture the Trump
Tina the Bold

Happy Birthday to Austin! It’s always lovely have a server finish work early on a birthday… and sit down to participate in the Quiz!  We sent him shots, we bought him beers, and we sang a rousing “Happy Birthday” to him.  Hopefully he will wake up with a genuine smile and a great anticipation for an exciting year to come.  Thank you for sharing the start of it all with us! I feel like we all learned a little something from the Quiz: Namely that Encyclopedia Britannica is edited strictly by paid professionals, and Wikipedia is still a slave to whatever rube chooses to edit it in realtime.  Alas, I

Yomimon Masters [In Training]

I'm working on a set of videos called "The Yomimon Toolbox". Here's an excerpt from it cause my brain can't be witty today.  Hey guys! Welcome to the first episode of The Yomimon Toolbox. These will be a collection of videos going over various aspects of Pokemon you can use to become a better battler and ultimately become a Yomimon Master.   What is Mind Games exactly?   a series of deliberate actions or responses planned for psychological effect on another,

I Was A Member Of My Third Grade Archery Club
Tygrr

So, yeah, I totally wasn't. Anyone who knows me is quite aware that me and pointy objects don't go well together. I'm rather clumsy most of the time. So the question about the sports the U.S. has never medaled in that sound like things you'd play on the playground in third grade garnered some interesting answers and makes me wonder if all of you went to really fancy schools or just really dangerous ones. While we were playing games like tag, foursquare, dodge ball (which should totally be an Olympic sport), hopscotch, jumping rope, and kickball at my school, apparently you guys were playing field hockey, throwing shotputs, bowling (on the playground?), shooting arrows (because that's totally
[ ...more... ]

I wish I could say I had crazy hobbies like naked skydiving (does naked camping count?), underwater shark impersonator, or snake charmer (I did play with a grass snake for an hour once when I was 8), but I'm just not that interesting. Instead I'll settle with my actual lame hobbies like reading voraciously, taking tons on photos (including lots of "selfies", of course), and camping (I wasn't kidding about that). I love making thematic playlists and being a QM is a perfect outlet for that; I get to create new playlists every week. 

I'm sorta known for my nonsensical, made up words and random goofy sounds. I've been called weird more than once, I take it as a compliment. (But after attending two Geek Bowls, I'd say I'm on the low end of the GWD weirdness scale.)

I have a motorcycle (that I haven't ridden in a long time) and a cat named Zube (that I've never ridden) who likes to "assist" me when I'm preparing my quiz and creating my blog. There's also another cat named Snow who is more interested in looking out the window; I guess he's looking for white walkers. I'm a proud native Texan, but I don't often sound like one (until I've had a few drinks). And it appears I really like parenthesis.

Your Mom Finds Strangers in the Alps for Spare Change
Nick Danger

I’ve somehow become accustomed to these quizzes being barn-burners and last night was no exception. The points were flying thick and fast as nine teams duked it out for their hard-earned points. Blood, sweat, and tears are all gross, especially when mixed together like some sort of maniacal witch’s brew, but they were all thrown my way last night. Ew. Anyways, here a recap of the thing I learned at last night’s quiz:   Michael Phelps can freestyle? I guess everybody’s a rapper these days.   Katy Perry sounds much better in 8-bit. Lil John still sounds like shit.   The advent of

The More We Know: Richard III was the last English king to die in battle, but not the last to look like Lord Farquaad from "Shrek". In 1485, he rode into combat and his body came riding back on a packed horse. Even though he was a monarch, he was also a defeated warrior, so his body was hastily buried near a church in Leicester. Cut to 2013 and a group of regal enthusiasts who are granted permission to dig up a parking lot where the church used to stand. Under the parking lot (or car park): a battle-damaged skeleton. After some DNA tests, the bones were

Not so long ago, I was on a team playing quiz and we ruled the school. My personal areas of expertise were both audio rounds, anything involving movies, and American History (X).

We placed first almost every week. So often that it became stale and I needed a new challenge. So instead of angering fellow geeks by besting them, I decided I would anger them by doing the asking. So I became a quizmaster and I've been pissing them off ever since.

This quiz night was not different for how we sat, or the herbs we imbibed, nor was it different in the levity of the pizza we consumed or the dipping that occurred.This Quiz night was different from all other quiz nights because it was my last quiz night at the Fabulous Stadium Inn.   I can explain how we learned a lot, and tell you the tales of hilarity which ensued at my favorite Quiz venue... but as I prefaced with this night was different then all other nights and this blog shall be too.   I

Huh? My story? Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi...

Gawd I love that movie.

I been Quizmaster since December of 2010ish and its only getting better, so when IM not scouring the toy shops or quizzing, or working for the Man.

As far as my softer side, I do enjoy live theatre and try to perform as much as possible myself, whether it be in a musical or stage play, but I also try to do Improv.

Yes just like "Whose Line".

 

So let me sign off by saying this,

 I don't need any of this. I don't need this stuff, and I don't need *you*. I don't need anything. Except this. 

And that's the only thing I need is *this*. I don't need this or this. Just this ashtray... And this paddle game. - The ashtray and the paddle game and that's all I need...

And this remote control. - The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that's all I need...

And these matches. - The ashtray, and these matches, and the remote control, and the paddle ball... And this lamp. - The ashtray, this paddle game, and the remote control, and the lamp, and that's all *I* need. And that's *all* I need too.

I don't need one other thing, not one... I need this. - The paddle game and the chair, and the remote control, and the matches for sure. Well what are you looking at? What do you think I'm some kind of a jerk or something! - And this. That's all I need.
 The ashtray, the remote control, the paddle game, and this magazine, and the chair.

 And I don't need one other thing, except my dog.

An Intimate, vulgar evening.
The People's Chimp

Hi everyone. I'm not Chris.  As you all insisted, I'm much, much better. I mean, who am I to disagree with the people?  Anywho, we had a cute gaggle of folks this evening. It was a sweaty one in Haverhill, and we all got together and said some incredibly vulgar shit. The pictures that were texted to me throughout the evening were sincerely the grossest, most offensive I'd seen in that two hour window we were quizzing. Additionally, some of the answers sent in for the bonus questions were incredibly colorful. As were pictures shown to me. I'm not going to say who, (it was someone on Fart Noise,) but they had WAY too many pictures

No one calls me the spacecowboy. Most recently, someone came up to me and asked me if I was Josh. I said "I can be." He didn't know how to respond to that, and we went our seperate ways.

Bro, Do You Even Totoro?

Hola, Quizchachos! Tonight, we retrofitted a few hit tunes with a touch of 8-bit magic, followed Flat Stanley around the world to some unsavory locations, and trekked across the Alps in search of strangers. “Do you see what happens Larry?”, indeed! After a 2-month hiatus, the unstoppable complete cast of High & Dry was back to their usual domination shenanigans, leading the pack at every check-in but closing the night a mere two points ahead of Team Mystic for the Win, who notched a respectable 2nd place despite spending most of the quiz swiping up on their answer sheets.

It Came from the End of July
ChristinaHicks

Okay, confession time. I had (and still have) a huge crush on Chris Hardwick, stemming from his time on Singled Out. I'm not really ashamed to admit it. Or maybe I am because I didn't say anything about it last night... The evening was full of Michael Phelps, cartoon characters in theme parks, 8 bit covers of Katy Perry, news events from the past, really high places, and of course- random knowedge. We had 10 teams and no Pokemon references at all! TRUMP <3S PUTIN won first and though ANDY'S BACK FOR GOOD and MR. GORBACHEV, TEAR DOWN THAT FIREWALL. came in 2nd and 3rd, they were super teams and were disqualified from being 2nd place. That meant THE JACK MEHOFFS were

Hey guys Happy Wednesday it was gorgeous outside I was worried we were not going to have much of a turnout because of the weather but I was very wrong. I saw some familiar faces and several new teams tonight.  This was my first time running solo without Lara and it was challenging but I managed to keep up and finish on time, (no easy feat for me).       We had a new team come in and steal 1st place, the dark horse Lil Sebastian, they were first timers at my quiz and they took the whole thing.  We had my moral support team under yet a new name  1 D and  3 loud C words they ended up in 4th but were in

Hey gang! Wow, another great turnout last night! Thanks so much y’all. John and I had a great (extended) time with y’all. We regaled you with history of late July, video game-ish covers, and quick trip through the Alps. We got high together in Round Four and then had our childhood dreams ruined by the creepy guy in the Lola Bunny costume in our Visual Round. Then we kept the world tour going with Flat Stanley. Some folks were apparently stoked to hear the name Flat Stanley again. I don’t know him though. Then we got all high and mighty in our Video Round. I guess some of y’all actually watch Showtime, huh? Finally we capped it off with Jaromir Jagr, Carmen

Happy Birthday to me!
Admiral Cabbage

It was my birthday last night so I spent it with my quizzers.  On my way home I felt good about how things turned out.  We had a few teams and Ross came out on top after a much contested battle for second with Probability of Losing...High.  Bradford's Birthday Suit came in first and boy were they happy. After I got home I decided to walk Cabbage and he was willing to oblige.  We met a young man selling DVD's on the sidewalk at 1am and I didn't think anything of it until I saw what movies he was selling.  They were bootlegs of amateur boxing matches.  Backyard boxing matches with boys
