Vacation Time Is Over
Adrian "Fish" Larson

It’s so great to be back. I loved my vacation and I did some awesome stuff. I made a little money, though I spent more than I gained, and I hiked/climbed up a really big cliff that I named Mount Zion. However, vacations do make me miss my real life which includes quizzing on Tuesday nights. Our team count was a little weak last night with only 9 teams, but that was great news for everyone. Every team made the top 10!!! And a surprising amount of you know your poets quite well. I stared at that picture for round 5 before the quiz and realized something about

Born in 1981, male, 6'0", Aquarious, 3/4 German, 1/4 Norwegian, 100% AWESOME. Those are most important facts about me, or at least the most definite. Everything else is changeable, but I'll tell you a little bit about me at the moment. When I'm not being the coolest Quizmaster in the world, I spend my days delivering mail for the United States Postal Service. I'm a "power nerd" and Star Wars is my area of expertise. Though "power nerd" status does require me to somewhat regularly play Magic: The Gathering, D&D, and spend a minimum of 12 hours a week playing video games of some sort. My other hobbies include disc golfing, regular golfing, and texas hold 'em. I am also a biker! I ride a black 2013 Harley V-Rod Muscle that I've named Balerion, after a dragon in Game Of Thrones. My nerdiness even spills over into my tough biker side. If their is anything else you want to know, just ask. I'm an open book.

Yell At The Darkness
Cody H.

Sometimes life catches you by surprise. For instance, last night! We were quizzing, as we do on Tuesdays, when the power decided to cut off right in the middle of Round 6. While wholly detrimental to what one has come to expect from Geeks at the Drafthouse such as A: air conditioning; B: a giant movie screen with the questions on them; and C: Spotify playlist amusements, we figured out after the shock wore off that quiz could still proceed. So, in advance of the Harry Potter quiz this Saturday, I got to practice my theater voice and playing to the back of the audience by yelling the rest of Round 6 and 8. It was an...interesting experience, and one might say made for a more

Hitler and Hibiscus
Laura Lynn

Hellooooo Tuesday and hello first time subbing at Cottonwood Cafe. Let me tell you this venue is the tops. Not only did I have the best BBQ panini of my life, but they had this Hibiscus Ginger Cider beer on tap and it was literally life changing. Seriously, go there and drink one immediately.  I have to say last night's video round was probably my favorite to date. Tilted Hitler had me cracking up at my QM station. A huge thank you to the 16 teams to came out and a surprise guest appearance by my cousin, Phillip. I don't know if I was more surprised to see him or he was more surprised to see me hosting.  Repeat winners Budashevska took

TITO's Accepted Everywhere
Rainier

Lots of vodka for all last night made it a great time to do quiz. WE saw plenty of mega teams, but after ending in a tie we had a dance off square off.   No we didn’t have it be a line dance off, but that idea is now very much in my mind and will likely be done next time we have a tiebreaker.   Yeti wanted me to let everyone also know that Vodka came from Russia and anyone who says it is from Poland is mistaken and should be turned red with the pride of communist pride. Needless to say the amount of Tito’s we had may have been enough for both of us to be patriotic.   Either way with all the fun we had last night the

Folks around these parts know me by a lot of names. Having grown up in Seattle I went by Cookie during my time playing baseball. Also had the nickname Nature Boy at summer camp, and in high school Spanish class I was Diablo. Along with my many names come many talents. I was the state pickleball champion two years in a row (2005-2006) and have a pretty mean drinking arm when it comes to bar games. Try your luck and challenge me to some pool if you feel lucky. Am a passionate world traveler with plenty of plans to keep moving along in the future. Currently enjoying life and laying it all on the line Monday night at the Blue Star Cafe & Pub.

Can we compare more things to the Baldwin Bros combined height?
Josh

Another great night out at 414 tonight! I had a great time and I hope everybody else had as much fun as I did. It was an exciting night but in the end Desert Devs was able take an early lead and hang on to it by having an almost perfect second round with the joker! You Knocked Me Off the Modem came in second place, jumping from third place with that signature round 8 joker. This is also the first night I’ve seen one person sweep ALL FIVE bonus questions! He got the right answers super-fast but was nice enough to share the wealth by giving away his free beers (I’m glad he did because I think he was driving home). Thank you

Clouds: We Ain’t Never Scared
Quizmaster Milos

The monsoon's final come around, and with it, (much needed) rain and clouds. And last night, it sure looked rainy and cloudy. But you cool people showed up ANYWAY, and we didn't get rained on a single bit, protected as we were by the blessed halo of quizzocity. Y'all got Down and Dirty, sang along to "Africa," mostly went for the two point Sooner, laughed at the Real Dead poets, were delighted to no end to learn that Shaggy was a marine, and smashed those Weiner pics. Honestly, it was a close race all the way, so shouts out to all the teams. In the end, We Are Family claimed third, and there was a freakin' tie (we love those) between Couch

I Win Platinum Medals

The 2016 Summer Olympics are over! I'm a little sad, but also a little happy, because while I don't begrudge the Bolts, Ledeckys, Phelpses, and Bileses (Biles? Bilesi?) of the world their glory, all the attention must be on me at all times. There are no exceptions. You there, the cheering person - are you cheering for me? No? Then SILENCE. Sure, I can't run 100 meters in less than, oh, 15 seconds? But I can host the shit out of quiz.I think I made a lot of teams very happy with question four of our video round.

Aviva

The thing I like about hosting trivia is that the people and wait staff are so friendly, it's like we're all in some sort of universe I assumed only existed in sitcom world. it's unnatural. But nice. Like a chimp giving you a massage. Anyways, last night I was happy to see people not melting into their seats like last week! Even though I didn't go around with the answer sheets we still had a pretty big game! And the only rowdiness we had was returning Bill the Bartender whose new catchphrase "Use Lube!" was forcefully inserted into many openings  (that one was too easy). But you guys totally nailed it last night - I think 91 points is the highest we've ever gone together.

Round 1 was called Down and Dirty, with each answer using one of those words. Strong round for everyone. Those that stumbled just...didn’t listen to the rules. That’s all. Easily remedied.   Round 2’s audio (“This Round Goes to H”) was an alphabetical round, with each song title being a one word title and the answers in alphabetical order. Possibly I shouldn’t have said that they started with A, I think that was a too-easy hint. Over half of you jokered. Highest audio round scores I think I’ve ever seen? Good job, guys!

I believe that any mundane task could be improved with the addition of a Star Wars costume. Driving a car? Mowing the lawn? Shopping at Costco? Add a Darth Vader costume, INSTANT HILARITY.

I am a bookish geek (I read a lot, I randomly edit grammar in advertisements, and I quote Douglas Adams quite a lot).

I attend several geeky conventions every year, either as a rabid fangirl or a staff member.

I love inventing plays-on-words (I'M A PUN ROCKER), and I mock whatever movie I'm watching in the theatre (MST3K-style).

I love costumes- Pride and Prejudice Zombie, Black Knight, Captain Hammer or Female!Moist, Velma Dinkley, AVPM Snape, etc.

My motto is: you don't know if you'll epically fail or epically win at something until you give it a shot.

Remember: prepare for the Zombie Apocalypse, avoid the Bog of Eternal Stench, don't piss off the internet, and most importantly, Don't Panic.

Who is Mike Rucki?
Quizmaster Pio

Although he is not identified by name until the last third of the quiz, he is the object of its often-repeated question "Who is Mike Rucki?" and of the quest to discover the answer. As the quiz unfolds, Rucki is acknowledged to be a philosopher and inventor; he believes in the power and glory of the human mind, and the right of the individual to use their mind solely for themselves. He serves as a highly individualist counterpoint to the collectivist social and economic structure depicted in the quiz, in which society is based on oppressive bureaucratic functionaries and a culture that embraces mediocrity in the name of egalitarianism, which the novel posits is the end result of socialistic

Let's talk about me, finally. Sean McNeil once said, "I don't know how you can be so arrogant yet hate yourself so much." Thanks, Sean. To answer the question you did not actually ask, I do not know how I pull it off but I do and it works. That is, if you consider mind-boggling neurosis and crippling depression "working" but let us just go with it. I live in Seattle yet I am originally from New Jersey. That means I am a bastard. Do not say "GTL" around me, I will cut you. I may cut you anyway, since I have issues. I got introduced to this whole pub quiz world when I went to a quiz at my current venue with two friends and a sociopathic girl without a soul. After the soulless girl left my life I noticed that Geeks Who Drink was hiring in Seattle and I thought, "Oh my, this seems like a great place to feed my ravenous narcissim as well as fill the hole left by the soulless girl with lots of meaningless sex, perhaps finding some girl and trick her into loving me." Well, it did not quite work out like that, but I am still trying. In the mean time, I really enjoy having everyone listen to everything I say and deconstructing them verbally when their actions do not please me. Or verbally deconstructing them because I am bored. Also drinking lots of whiskey. I feel like my father.

No, that's not the length of the imaginary novel I'm writing, but I will tell you what it is in just a second. Tonight's quiz had a whole round on famous marines and a question about a movie in which marine drill sergeant character who made another character "his bitch." Since someone guessed that that movie was Full Metal Jacket, here's a little interesting tidbit about the drill sergeant in that movie. Gunnery Sergeant Hartman is the Senior Drill Instructor who teaches the recruits at Paris Island in the movie. He's played by legendary badass R. Lee. Ermey, who then turned that role into a whole career of being a loud, angry man wherever loud, angry men were needed.

I'm a technical writer by day, and a Quizmaster by night. When not quizzing or doing that other job, I'm generally playing video games OR playing one of a number of instruments (I play more than I have fingers, but primarily trombone) OR watching sports OR drinking (whiskey or beer, generally, but I'm famously not above knocking back bright pink, fruit-flavored 'martinis').

AG Coming to Save the Day
RobertLove

This Friday, August 26, is meant to mark the day that breweries in Oklahoma can start serving their own "high point" beer on premise. This was allowed by the passage of SB 424 and removes the requirement that breweries purchase their "full strength" product from a distributor. Everything was going according to plan, until the ABLE Commission tried to flex their nuts all over those businesses. On the 18th, the Commission ruled that the language of the legislation did not explicitly include the ability to sell "full strength" beer for on premise consumption. This, mind you, is a "right" that wineries have had for many years. Practically, what this has meant, is that any brewery

I'm Almost a Teacher!
Ben

The last ten years of my life, give or take, have been spent mostly working toward receiving my college degree and moving on to the next phase of my life. You know, the one where I actually have a profession and can say that I actually do something of import with my life? Not that hanging out with my quizzers every week isn’t just a blast and a half, but still I need a day job. Anyway, my chosen profession is that of the teacher, and this week I started the final leg of that journey; Student teaching. The first thing I have to say about it, now that I am officially a whole two days in is, holy crap I’m tired. Turns out everything everyone has ever told me about the hecticness

Of Green Chile and Bacon
Kirsten

Tiny wisps of steam rise from a mound of cheese layered over generous cuts of bread, a delightful heap of mushy yellows.  The mouth begins to salivate as the nose is overcome with aromas of sugar, butter, and what’s this?  Bacon?  Surely not, that must be someone else’s plate.  This side dish is too substantial for fingers; the eater must use a fork to slice through its layers.  Upon delving in, the truth is revealed.  Yes, that was bacon giving off its scent just seconds earlier, and this is roasted green chile.  The good kind because there are hints of red and orange gallivanting amidst the dark, slimy green.  The chile is tasted first,
