All Chaps Are Assless
Chloe

Judging by the amount of orange that the Twisted Pine quiz kids were wearing tonight I’d say that the Twisted Pine quiz kids are just as excited about the Bronco’s win last weekend as the other million people who showed up for the victory parade yesterday.   Here were some of the other highlights from this week’s quiz:   - We all got eight more reminders of why we’re glad we weren’t alive during the Civil War. Sure, Gatling gun is fun to say, but that doesn’t mean I’d want to be on the business end of one.   - We found out that all chaps are assless.    -

Scotty Danger

Omg... If you missed the part of the evening tonight where we were all introduced to "Jon Benjamin - Jazz Dared" on Spotify, you need to go listen to it right now... no seriously, stop reading, find it, and listen, I'll wait...  Okay, you back?  If you have any musical sensibilities at all, you should be laughing you ass off right now... wow... I love the melting pot of information and social discovery that happens at Quiz.  Thank you Hot Dogs! (And thank you for the "monkeys," too ;-)  It was  quieter night at 4 Noses tonight, literally... All the annoyingly loud non-quizzers were still hungover from the Super Bowl, I'm sure, so we had great

Adventures in Phonics!
Tas

Words are hard. Tonight, pronunciation came up a lot. It all really started in round 4, which dealt with cowboys and London's East End. One question involved the River Thames, and being a minor anglophile, I knew it was pronounced "temz." Yet, the guys on Die Hard: Tokyo Drift were insistent to sarcastically correct me every chance they got. "It's pronounced 'thaymes!'", I heard for the rest of the night. And even words that didn't fit it at all. How do you pronounce Kid Rock's breakthrough track? "Thaymes.." We don't get tempeh much in Iowa, despite our soy-centric agricultute, so how do you say it? "Thaymes." What city is Wilshire Boulevard in? Friggin'

It Was Sparks!!!
He Who Shall Be Ignored/Obeyed About 50/50

It got Sloopy’s attention! That’s for sure.   His friends were sure it was just the noise that startled him, but Sloopy knew he’d seen actual sparks coming from the quizmaster’s table.   And, apparently, he wasn’t wrong, as, after some sturm und drang, the QM started shouting rounds. Sloopy thought to himself, this guy’s got brass balls.   Thankfully, the rest of the night, the QM managed to get a microphone working and quiz went on as usual. Mostly.   As an Englishman, Sloopy

London vs. Deadwood
CoryChambers

We had a round tonight on London and the Wild West, and it's got me thinking--If I had to go back in time to the 1850s, I honestly can't tell you whether I would go back to the Wild West or to the heart of British High Society. I'm female, so let's face it--my options in both eras are pretty shitty. In the Wild West, I could be either a married lady in a temperance society, or a saloon whore. Given my passionate affection for whiskey, I have a pretty good idea of where I would have ended up. In London high society, my options would be either to make a good match at the age of 17 (which, my high school yearbook will attest, was not my best year), or to become a burdensome spinster by the age

Dr Payne

  I learned something tonight. Turns out most people in Portland (using of course my small sample of peeps that frequent a rockabilly BBQ joint for quiz nights) have a much more extensive knowledge of  John Cusack movies and songs that contain variations on "WOOOO WHOOOOO" than they do about British history and Geometry. I'll get into details shortly. Tonight I walked into Salvage BBQ after fighting to find a parking space. See, Salvage is next to the Portland Expo, which tonight was hosting some sort of horseshit high school sporting event, so of course a bunch of families from east Bumfuck, Maine made the trip to the big

2016 Was Written by George R.R. Martin
Grey

With the dearth of celebrities going to their final rest this year AND the premiere of Deadpool this week, I got a chuckle out of this week’s visual round. I also liked some of the answers that came up for these geezers that people didn’t recognize. Who knew that Ronald Reagan’s widow was either Carol Burnett, Ruth Bader-Ginsberg, Sally Jesse Raphael or Madeline Albright? Or that Jerry Lewis looked an awful lot like a “photoshopped Stephen Hawking”? Thusly the teams at Alamo Drafthouse in Kalamazoo began scribbling their answers as the quiz began. By the end of the third round two things became unfortunately apparent; First was that (*GASP*… the

Round 1 saw a solid start with alphabetically sequential answers. Three teams came in with perfect scores and the rest of the pack wasn’t far behind.  Eyeteeth knew the first answer started with A.B., but guessed the screaming dad Alec Baldwin over large-beaked Adrien Brody, whereas 3 Girls 1 Koa thought it might be everyone’s favorite Chrismakkah celebrant: Adam Brody.

When It Comes to Matters of the Heart, One Must Drink…
Elise

Hello, my quizlings! Tonight at Geeks who Drink we quizzed with EXCITEMENT. So much EXCITEMENT. The EXCITEMENT was palpable!     In addition to an EXCITING playlist about love and loves and loves lost and hearts thrown in for good measure, we quizzed about England. And assless chaps. All chaps are assless! And then I mispronounced Pujols and remembered that my knowledge of sports is limited. But trust me, if I ever play, you want me on your team. You want me, you REALLY want me!     And I want you to want me.     Tonight’s quiz was SUPER EXCITING. So much so that the fun was had by all,

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.

But Would The Broncos Win Geeks Who Drink?
Nate

I wish I was half as good at being a quizmaster as Von Miller is at wearing hats. Because, seriously, that dude has got some game.  But how would he do at Geeks Who Drink? He seems nerdy enough. Though, maybe that's just the glasses talking. But what if they actually put together a team of six people to play Geeks? How would they do? Peyton would probably have to be a part of it. Von Miller for sure. Uh. Maybe Chris Harris Jr? Does John Elway count? He's a Stanford grad. Nate Irving would totally be on if he was still playing. That dude is a big nerd. And maybe Wade Phillips, because every team needs the awesome chubby guy.  So, how would my six person super

PANTS OFF DANCE OFF*
DaniIndovino

First? My pencil sharpener exploded. Seriously. I was plugging it in and there was sparks and a burning smell. Then? The cord came blowing off the back of the sharpener. We still made it, but it was scary. I was scared. You were scared. Teams made fun of me. Only at my quiz, right?   This was a quiz with three 16 point rounds, and a wide wide field. So many new teams. And you all did super well! I was so glad to see you. The best part? That before after sound round in round 7. You all rocked it, AND it was fun! You had a great sound round, too, with too many of you knowing lots and lots of ear worms. Even if your Janet Jackson game is weak.   We had

Rhino

Packed house tonight! The competition was fierce with an even 30 teams kicking off the night here at Fado. Over the course of two hours, we ate, we drank, we laughed, we learned things, and we drank some more. We compared the American Civil War and the English Civil War in Round 3, and learned about the probably-not-funny-at-the-time-but-totally-hilarious-today fate of Governor Arthur Aston. I got to flex my Spanish pronunciation in Round 4 and had a completely justified reason to use the word “pendejo.”

Spartacus Lives!
Geoff (like Chaucer)

Tonight reminded me of an old beer commercial.  It went through a list of things that guys love... sports, fresh food off a grill, hanging out with friends... and twins.  Heh.  Unfortunately, the only twins at tonight's quiz were in our video round.  Lets get to the recap!We had five teams tonight settle in for tonight's brain teasers.  Tonight's subjects included American land acquisitions, civil wars, geometry, the alphabet, songs that make you go "Woo!" and celebrities that are still alive in 2016.  We nearly had a tie for 1st place after 6 rounds, but the last two rounds separated the winners from the rest.First place went to Snozzberries

GEEKS.  I enjoy role-playing games, listening to music, and video games.  Reddit is my bread and butter.  I know a lot about a lot of things.

WHO.  Military veteran, computer expert.  Young at heart, sarcastic to a fault, and funny.  I hope.

DRINK.  I don't drink often, but when I do, it's usually a beer.  I drink shots on special occasions only.  I am known to sing karaoke at times.

The Nuclear Winter is Upon Us!!!!
QM DJ Don Drapist

  It started out looking like another snow-pocalypse, but after quiz everything weather related turned out ok. I also had my very own #wooguy who kept saying “…and your mom” after everything I said. Here are the things we now know to be true: It’s called the SALVATION Army. Not the SOUTHASIAN Army. Let’s get that out of the way first. #WooGuy soundtrack made for a good audio round… That one guy up front really did love Hall and Oates a lot. Some English governor a long time ago was beaten to death with his own wooden leg, and we imagined him saying quintessentially British things while that was happening. Many

Order in the Pit!
ShelbyGraham

Hello Geekdom!We had such a feisty turnout of Quizzers this week, and we danced all around our brainwaves: backwards plots, what came before and after an array of stuffs, and of course - calling a certain order for eclectic groups.  Add some botulism, bots, the Bard and Bells to the mix - we definitely covered every crevice of the cerebral organ, and I think we all became all-the-better for it! The Pitfire team was great at keeping up with our revelry, as several free drinks flowed from bonus-success, and my cleansing (Sooo LA) made me order TWO lettuce-bowls (what a splurge!  And yet, they did make it legitimately delicious).In the end, it was close

Hi!  I'm Shelby and I am an actress and comedienne (and, as you could probably assume, a quiz-masterette for Geeks Who Drink).

I'm a Gemini and 99% of my diet is either chocolate or hummus (though not at the same time.  Wait a second - hmmm...) and I also host a weekly Stand-Up open mic and study improv at Hideout Theatre.

AKA - I'm extremely indecisive and refuse to make up my mind.  But I have a fun time and look good while doing it!  (So I'm told.  Not being arrogant here.)

I also really enjoy proper grammar coupled with sailor-mouths.
It's a thing.


Cheers and looking forward to Quizzing you sometime soon!
