I Debugged In Your Chair
QM Colleen

I arrived at Nox Cocktail rather early. You see, I needed to work on my homework and a little part of me feels like being in Nox makes me smarter. I sat there with my laptop and I programmed and debugged and kinda sorta got something working. I think.... we'll see what my grade is. Mainly I'd like to tell you all how strange it is to return to being a student when you haven't been one for over a year. Sitting through lecture is weird. Having to tell people you can't hang out with them because you have to do your homework is weird. It's weird. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining - I am very lucky to be able to continue working on my education. I just had forgotten what a

Colleen is a Rochester native with a heart of gold. Icy, icy gold. You can find her at Wall Street every Tuesday night and occasionally on a stage somewhere else in Rochester. Doing theater. Not stripping. She would be the most awkward of strippers. Think Danny Devito on Friends and then quadruple the awkward. Got the mental image? Good. She also plays Ultimate Frisbee and if you are vewy,vewy quiet you can catch her galavanting around RIT campus.

#SuperInsensitive
Thorny

I love a good round of "Jesus VS Yeezus", and that's just what happened at O'Possum's Pub Sunday night. We covered religion, social media snafoos, and the bitch-likeness of Marcellus Wallace.   Here are some things that we have learned: Anthony Weiner is still a hilarious name.  Africa is still not a country. The Pillsbury Dough Boy's name is Poppin' Fresh. Poppin' Fresh is NOT a gangsta rapper, although he should be with a name like that.  Die Antwoord is awesome and also nightmare enducing.  Speaking of Nightmares, let's all pay our respects

The Downer
Steve

Goldschlager was absent with this Sunday iteration of Big Dogs pub quiz...thankfully. Whilst we were quizzing horror master Wes Craven passed away and apparently Nicki Minaj yelled at Miley Cyrus on stage at the MTV VMA’s. Such controversy.  I remember a time when MTV was important, at least to me. It once seemed like the the only way I would ever see a lot of the bands I was into live. Then there was this moment when Jim Carrey came out to introduce the next band, and suddenly he is promoting his next movie Liar Liar and the spell was broken. All these people are just selling something. I was done with reward shows.

People do weird stuff with social media.
TaylorCrane

I love hearing about social media gaffes. They are normally incredibly inappropriate and hilarious. Lucky for us round 4 was all about it. From Pornhub telling people to only visit their ebony tab in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. to American Apparel celebrating the 4th of july with a picture of the challenger explosion you guys knocked this round out. You knew your stuff. I knew I liked you guys. Speaking of rounds yall did great at, here is a round that you did the opposite in. Sometimes round 2 is a tricksy little guy and sometimes he's super easy. This week was tricksy. At least to you guys. The songs weren't crazy obscure I think you just got in your head with

What a great night at the Lucky Dog! I was personally super happy since one of my best friends joined us all the way from Boston! She was part of The One with the Baby. Another new team, Pop Rocks, joined us. I was glad to welcome back Alpha Beta Wasted and I'm Not Sure, I'm HIV Positive (who had been on a one-week hiatus because of Fantasy Football). This Team is Lazy was short a few players and apologized for being, ahem, lazy. Well, as long as all teams had fun, it doesn't matter, right? Anyway, onto the quiz. Pop Rocks and I'm not

I Did It, Guys!
Quizmistress SJ

And I don’t mean in a sexual ways, you sickos. I got the great privilege of covering Piper Down last night while Nick was out exploring Boston for his birthday. Everything went mostly according to plan! Woot. Just a little bit of sound adjusting here and there because my high lady voice ends up cutting across the crowd quite a bit more than Nick, the soft-spoken man that he is. We got it on point, though. We had fun with quotes from rappers or religious pundits, female actors getting their own, and, my favorite, an audio round on voice actors and their characters. That round 7 included clips from Linda Belcher, Babe singing christmas tunes, and Pinky and The Brain.   Another

Two years into this biz, and I am loving being Quizmistress at Lumpy's Downtown on Thursdays. Other than trying to fry brains during pub quiz I spend my life snowboarding and frying my own brain studying science at the U. Not too shabby, eh? After moving around to a bunch of different places after high school and college (Portland, Cuba, Chile, NYC, SLC, DC) I'm back in these big beautiful mountains (I'm from here originally)!

Come hang out with me at Lumpy's Downtown  for more exciting tidbits on the life of Sarah 'Jo' Newhall. That's right, 'Jo'. Not my real middle name, but it is a nickname that makes me turn my head when called. I promise not to laugh too hard when you say Africa is a country or something equally as outrageous.

Nami Nami Nami Pants

Like the title implies, tonight was either silly hard, or silly easy. Oh vey, what’s a girl to do? Well regardless, tonight was a close competition because of the fact. As always, the first round starts off smartly enough to give teams a false sense of security. Because good lord, the next rounds were terribly not kind. Round two was full of things that practically no one under the age of 17 could know, except for like 1 or 2 songs. Round 3 was so offensive, it really was a crap shoot. Honestly, the first scoring break barely had a 3 point differential.   Here’s the thing. Can we talk about how offensive Round 3 was? Technically it’s usually our easiest

You Will Not Find Miss Piggy on J Date...
"Other" Eric

     I had to think about it. I may have totally misinformed you tonight when I stated Miss Piggy was on J Date. I have researched the website, and it looks to be 100% Kosher. So while it is questionable if the man who voiced her is Jewish or not, Miss Piggy is not allowed on J Date. Keep your eyes peeled on Tinder...      Quiz kicked off with a round on dropping letters, not bombs. It was a great round of celebrity names that if you dropped a single letter, you got the answer to our question. The audio round had "Never" all throughout. People were very surprised by Alice Cooper! The 50/50 round had quotes from either rappers or religious pundits,

Bombs Away
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

Good evening you wonderful quizzers! I really do look forward to closing out the weekend at PBS. The cocktails are splendid, the staff is superb, and you all are a good looking and clever bunch. Truly a rare combination in the geekdom. Usually it is a one or the other. Normally the other. Tonight we dropped letters in round one to get fun answers like Lance Ass and ill.i.am. Not so fun, in round three we learned rappers and religious leaders can both say some pretty whack things. Who knew 50 Cent and Fred Phelps were so alike? Also, social media is full of face palming faux pas. Round four we covered some embarrassing moments for Naomi Campbell, Madonna, and even PornHub. Not sure

Hello. Hope you are doing well. My name is Andrea. I became a Quiz Master straight out of college. My proud parents would like to be the first to tell you, this is the longest I have ever held a job.

I enjoy TV crime dramas, early bed times, mountain views, wandering the West, and hanging with my dog Joe. My day job is in mental health. I am afraid of aliens. I think human/ alien relations will not work well for either party. I have a degree in Cultural Anthropology. I hope enjoy my quiz.

See you on Sunday,

Okay, DMX.  Sit down and let me tell you where the name Google comes from.  You see, it's the deliberate misspelling of the word "googol," which is a real-ass word meaning the number that is represented by 1 with a hundred zeroes after it.   It's great to learn!   What else did we learn on quiz?  Well, Alice Cooper never cries.  PornHub and DiGiorno have terrible advertising people.  And YOU need to watch more Chinese films.  Fan Bingbing is a national treasure!   Also, the Get Along Gang was most famously a cartoon, but they originated as a series of characters invented for greeting

51st Dates!!
Sally

YES! NO WRONG ANSWER WILL EVER TOP THIS WRONG ANSWER!    51st dates. Fifty first dates. 50 first dates. So damn brilliantly wrong. I wish all wrong answers were this wrong answer. It's close enough to know what you meant but wrong enough for me to not be sure that you truly meant the right answer. OBVIOUSLY this is the sequel to 50 First Dates. 51st dates!!! The look of glee when I read out that answer and then the look of absolute HORROR when one team mate realized he misheard his other team mate. I wish I had that photo, instead I have a photo of them with incredible emotions of self pity.    Crack is Whack
