C3P0's Baby Theft
L

I want to recount for you Bahrians a conversation I had with a friend just hours before the tragedy that has recently befallen me. Human: Laura, who is your best friend? Laura: Oh I don't know... Human: Come on,  you KNOW the answer to this. Laura: Fine. It's my iphone. Human: But what about Jam?  (Jam is my amazing, beautiful dog) Laura: Still my iphone, closely followed by Jam. Honorable mention to my boyfriend, Clayton. But still. I miss my sweet, beautiful, gold baby. I thought that being without her would make me a better socializer. Even! a better host! But no. I can't take pictures, I can't subtly fact check,

I started quizzing way back in 2009 in a little 'ol town called Austin, TX. After making the move to Houston, I became a regular quizzer at Little Woodrow's Rice Village on Tuesday nights. It's more fun to win when you're beating grad students and doctors. A year went by, and I grew into quite the quiz addict. It was time to up the ante. I needed to be closer to the quiz action. At the auditions, I fought other contestants to the death to achieve an unexpected, well-fought victory. I now host Monday and Tuesday evenings while drinking delicious beer to forget the things I did to get here.

Before my quiz life, I attended school in San Antonio, where I became an English major and a rabid Spurs fan. During the day I work as a private tutor and professional taco slinger. When not engaged in any of these wonderful occupations, you'll find me buried in a book somewhere or out and about with my Australian Shepherd, Jam. I can even be spotted playing quiz on a Wednesday or Thursday. I can't quit you, quiz.

Join me for all my hosting smart-assery at Neil's Bahr Monday nights in East Downtown or in Rice Village at Little Woodrow's on Tuesdays.

This Blog Brought to You By the Pew! Pew! Pew! Research Center
The Freshmaker (QMOTY*IV)

Happy Tuesday, Fadenziens! We’re fresh off another lovely quiz at Fado, and I’ve got Pew Fever! Never did I realize that the National Public Radio-famous Pew Center for Research was spelled the same way as every four year old’s laser gun sound effect, and I’m using this coincidence to inform and enlighten our quiz-going audience. As with everything in the world, the origins of pew-pew sound effects can be traced back… to Star Wars. In a long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, the children of Generation X were so taken with the awesomeness that were the blaster in Star Wars that they began imitating the

Which stereotypical quizzer and answer response are you?
RobinRyan

Part of the fun of being a quizmaster is watching and listening for the nuances people have when I read the questions.  There are several responses: The obvious knowledge:  Reaching right for the answer sheet with the pure confidence. The tip-of-the-tongue:  Repeated circular hand gestures as if you are trying to reel in the answer.  Often paired with head flung backwards, wild eyes, and sometimes plugging of the ears. The quit: A disappointed shake of the head following the tip-of-the-tongue with the knowledge that you have failed yourself and your team. The WTF:  A wild eyed glance around at other teams because you don’t even

things I like more then most people:  vultures, my job(s), the world frolic, the ocean, rhode island, canada, good hugs, sharks, harry potter, dumb jokes, traveling, scuba

things I dislike more then most people:  the word tootles, scary movies, spicy food, pickles, tomatoes, spelling frolic with a K, dinosaurs, elevator doors, facetime/webcams

The Land of Milk and Honey
Mark

What's up GWD?   That's you guys! You're the Geeks Who Drink, probably from The Retreat.   So there were two questions tonight that reminded me of old cartoonish things I used to watch.   The first was in the audio round. The round was called The Land of Milk and Honey. When I was a kid I had a VHS (a what?) of two Winnie the Pooh episodes. One was called the Piglet Who Would Be King. Long story short, well, I guess short story shorter, they ran out of honey, and the gang set out to find more, in, you guessed it - The Land of Milk and Honey.   Strangely enough, the other episode on that VHS

Sorry for the delayed blog Quizzers! I've been busy all day buying a car, and being stricken with sinus infection. Let's get to it. R1- A word round where every answer begins and ends with the letter G. Also, apparently nobody knows who Oprah's BFF is.R2- Audio Round to inspire you to greatness... or just a bunch of shitty songs that fit the theme. Also, it feels like Chicago might become the new Pearl Jam. We'll keep tabs, and see if it sticks.R3- Best 50/50 round ever. Pop-Tarts vs. Twinkies. Pop-Tarts are obviously better, but the don't have a anthropomorphic cowboy as their mascot. Scoring Break! So Many Teams! It was a blast! R4- A round

What are the chances!?
Real Maple Syrup

Holy buckets what a crazy night! With 19 teams there were ties all over the place throughout quiz but to end with a four-way tie for first?! I’ve never heard of such odds!! Rallying all four teams and using our sudden death questions we narrowed it down after the first round of questions to The Double Filled Cream Betweens and Sparkle Motion where we jumped onto our second round of sudden death questions, and with teams tied 2-2 going into the final question, it all came down to a Dorothy Parker poem - hats off to The Double Filled Cream Betweens for truly showing they know a ton of fun facts. Best team names? Ronda

Birthday Bash
TimGaydos

Many of you probably came into Great Lakes thinking today was just a normal Tuesday.  That there wasn’t anything special going on, and it would just be business as usual.  WRONG.  Very wrong.  Tonight we celebrated the birthday of our lovely and wonderful bartender Ally.  Happy Birthday!  Hopefully the next year won’t have quite so many broken glasses.   Speaking of broken, my segue machine isn’t working so we will just awkwardly transition to tonight’s quiz.  We started of with feats of the Gishwhes scavenger hunt, which includes but is not limited to Ducth Ovens.  Then we traveled to the Land of Milk and

Ever Heard of This One Band From That One Movie?
MarthaZapata

Someone tonight said that Queen only became popular in this country after that stupid movie was made. By that stupid movie I assume he’s talking about Wayne’s World. I wasn’t quite sure how to respond to this comment. First of all, Wayne’s World was not a stupid movie, well maybe the second one was. But I’m fairly certain the first one won awards… maybe just MTV awards but still it was a great movie. Secondly and most importantly Queen has been famous fucking FOREVER. Umm, ever heard of the little ditty called We Are The Champions or We Will Rock You. Then there is that tiny detail that Freddie Mercury was already famous and had died before the movie was

Honey Balls

When you pull 22 teams together for quiz, you’re bound to repeat some wrong answers. Even funny wrong answers. Yes, when we’re asking about the types of boy scouts, “Virgin” or “Nerd” or “Astronaut” and other variation is going to be seen. But how about “Honey Balls”? Is this a song I should know about? Is this a song that exists? Here’s a recap of what happens when three separate teams tell me that a song is titled “Honey Balls.” First sheet: Good one! I get it! You’re frustrated that you don’t

Oh my lanta, almost 20 teams,constant chaos, and by far the best time I've had hosting thus far.   As always, our evening was productively productive, and chaotically chaotic. We had the entire bar singing "Hooked on a feeling", which they definitely were. The feeling of winning! There was no definitive winner until the last round, which kept the house full and constantly testing their random knowledge.   There were tons of pigs in the bar tonight:blind pigs, spider pigs, and just the normal drunk pigs. Tom Sellick's Moustache also made a guest appearance, and was so manly I couldn't

Another night, another quiz
Alex

Some of you may have noticed a change in the way the quiz went tonight. Without getting too much into it (which could incite a bit of a witch hint), the music industry is a complicated place and managing a bar (or, in this case, a restaurant group) is complicated, and those two don't always see eye to eye. Just know that there are a number of players involved in this decision, and that no one of them is can be held at fault for this; it's, as I am aware, a respectful agreement between these parties to do business a certain way. As such, round 2 is going to start being a sports round (for now) every other week, and our audio rounds when we do have them will be different from what the rest of

Worst Corey Ever

Welcome to my blog. Are you comfortable? Can I get you something to eat? Or drink? Is that better? Here, why don’t you take a seat on the couch? Do you need a bigger screen to read this on? Let me get that for you. Ahh… so nice to see you! I know I take your picture each week to put up here, but sometimes you don’t seem to make it out. So it’s really nice to see you here reading. You’re thinking of coming back later to finish? Nonsense, you’re already here… it can only take another few minutes, maximum. And you’re already comfortable. Now let’s see what we have going on. Vanilla Isis snuck in a victory with a

WARNING: The following is top secret. It will most certainly stay that way, as nobody is ever going to read it.

I know everything there is to know about me. Nobody knows more about me than I do, and most likely nobody ever will. If I were a pub quiz, you would fail.

I am a recovering midwesterner on my ninth step (seeking apologies from everyone who was responsible for my being in the midwest as long as i was). I'll soon be moving on to the tenth step, where I take inventory of how my own actions made such a thing possible.

I am a (mostly) proud BU Terrier (I say mostly because though our hockey team is good, I'd never say I'm proud of them) with a degree in business (the highest of the classical sciences). Though Quizmaster is what I would consider my "day job" I'm also a CPA in my free time. I know what you're thinking, and NO... I DON'T do taxes. Not all CPAs do taxes. I am one of those who does not.

I do not like eating animal. Nothing against the animals. And nothing for the animals. I just don't do it. Don't ask. Or do. I don't give a shit (see Nick Swardson, All Day, for proper accenting of that last sentence).

I am a fan of penguins, owls, sheep, and dragons. This is because I can draw them at a 3rd grade level. All of my other drawing skills are closer to the Pre-K level.

I am a gamer at heart. Talk to me about Final Fantasy or Zelda. Don't talk to me about Halo, COD, or any other FPS disasters. I'm a classic JRPG lover and will defend the genre to the end of the earth. May the various gods help you when you try to argue it with me. "But I can't see people's heads blow up when I kill them!" "You're an idiot. I win."

I am about 5' 10". I am VERY Caucasian (read pale... not my fault). I am a musician. I am well read in Sci-Fi. I am scrawny. I am mostly happy. I am the warrior. I am not your father's oldsmobile.

But mostly, I am. (I think.)

It’s not great when you’re struggling to remember what comes after Special Sauce, but you know it’s awesome when you’re hallucinating penguins and are winning beer for simply knowing about Kramer’s coffee table book about coffee tables! America is beautiful, cheesy fries and all.  While reality television might honestly be worse than Hitler, you have to admit that country that can support that level of obesity and dumb-assery to keep that kind of counter-culture afloat must be doing pretty damn good for itself.  That’s how society works, right?

Can still do the alphabet backwards when drunk, even when not handing out free beers for knowing things like Barbara Walters' cup size (which is 100% ungoogleable, in fact it will lead you right back here to this very web page). 

I'm skinny, blonde, and my reading glasses make me cross the line into dirty hipsterdom like Superman and Clark Kent, except instead of super powers and a journalism career I get an opinion about Radiohead and a headache while staring at computer screens.

Tip your waitstaff and stay classy.

Divorces are having the Best Week Ever!
Ivan the Adequate

For the better part of the past 15 years or so, MTV and VH1 have been in a seemingly back-and-forth race for who can shit out the worst possible programming, usually within the world of reality television.   While it’s been at least a good 10 years since I’ve watched more than 5 minutes of programming on either network, I do remember a time before than when VH1 kicked ass in terms of getting up-and-coming comedians to go on various talking head shows – everything from Best Week Ever to the I Love The [Decade]s that were the focuses of this week’s audio round. And these were some legit players like Nick Kroll and Doug Benson.   I
