Canadian Smoke Helps Us Go Longer
Sean Monaghan

On a night where the Minnesota Twins decided to take things into extra innings, that's exactly what the quizzers at the Bulldog in Uptown did. That's right folks, we went into sudden death, because there was no winner after the first 8 rounds. Somewhat fitting that a couple of rival teams were gunning for the top prize at the end of the night, but I'm getting ahead of myself. Coming out of the big CONvergence weekend, it seems only fitting that there would be a team named C3PBros, and the World Cup clearly inspired How Do You Say "Sieve" in Japanese? in their team name. Just the 2 of Us came in with confidence, but an early departure kept

It was a dark and stormy night...
Bersonality

Hey there Reader! I moved to Las Vegas last September. While dealing with the above 100 degree temperatures (everyone has A/C) isn’t too bad, when it rains, it POURS. Normally, that doesn’t bother me because I am from the Midwest (Wisconsin) and have had to drive through rain, snow, sleet and even during tornadoes (not chasing them; just trying to get home). The one part of last night’s drive that gets to me is having to drive through heavy rain when the drainage system here is awful. Nearly every intersection is like a river, causing slowdowns and wakes that go over the cars next to you. It is ridiculous. At least I know that the undercarriage of my car has been

Getting old is mandatory, but growing up is optional. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, nothing really changed.

I still play video games, I play with more expensive toys now a days, but I still play. Between delivering knowledge in the Pub Quiz or delivering jokes on the bar stage, the most important thing is to play.

I could see the Squirrels, and they were Married
JoseTrujillo

I might be off base, but I feel like enough people don't realize that Milton, the squirrelly guy from Office Space, is Stephen Root. The same guy who played Eddie on True Blood and Bill on King of the Hill. Actually, Stephen Root is everywhere. He's about 65 years old and has 199 credits to his name. To help put that in perspective, the late Christopher Lee died at 93 with 278 credits. All of these numbers are according to IMDB. Now, granted Stephen does a LOT of awesome voice work which helps account for his high numbers, that's still a mighty impressive resume. His characters are all also quite varied. As we mentioned before, he played squirrelly, nervous Milton in Office Space, a tragic

And Then There Is Berlin
JacobNusbaum

Hello and welcome to the Monday Night Geeks Who Drink at MVP’s blog. It’s good to be back. I missed you guys. It seems strange to me to have not hosted a quiz in over a week. Anywho…we had questions about bags (sort of), a birthday round for 50 Cent (kind of), and a round on Berlin that had nothing to do with jelly donuts. I’ll start by letting you know that I have never seen The Legend of Bagger Vance. I’m pretty sure the last golf related movie I watched was Caddy Shack. I read a little bit about it just now with the help of the magic Googles. Apparently there was a bit of a fuss about being racially insensitive. I guess using “magical negro” as

Ich Bin Ein BFP?
The Comedy Freek

Hey Party People, Before I get to last night’s Quiz, I need to talk about a great event, that I’m a part of, that starts this Saturday. It’s BOISE’S FUNNIEST PERSON. It’s a contest where they take 20 people who have never been on stage and turn them into comedians in 4 weeks. It takes place at Liquid (405 S. 8th Boise, in the alley) starting this Saturday night (July 11th). Now, why do I care?   As some of you may know, I performed stand-up in LA for several years. I was on the fence about getting back into comedy and then a friend, who will remain anonymous (Great Scott!) introduced me to Sarah

Life in Purgatory
RobotNarwhal

Purgatory as a concept has roots in Catholicism.  It generally is a period of purification for souls ultimately destined for Heaven but who sinned during life.  The concept gained certain poetic prominence as an actual geographic location during the middle ages (a la Dante’s “Inferno”).  And since, while different Christian sects (and even other Judaic religions) give Purgatory a specific ecclesiastic definition, in pop culture, Purgatory has gained sense of “not quite Heaven, but not quite Hell.” Maybe it’s a place where non-Christians go.   Anyway, let me get to my point.  Jimmy Buffet is probably playing in Purgatory.

The Sound of Music Was Never So Naughty
Paddycake

In my head, I see the Von Trapp family singing at a bathhouse. I know, I know... the Kit Kat Club was not a bathhouse, but it was a place people went to be naughty, and I'm gay... so Bathhouse is the first thing that comes to mind. Plus, I actually CAN feasibly see them doing am opening act at a somewhat classy (albeit tawdry) strip club. I can see Captain Von Trapp covering little Gretl's eyes as they hurried of the stage so she wouldn't see the scantily clad women getting ready for their numbers, Or Kurt getting his first erection as he saw boobies for the first time, or even Leisl being fascinated and someone giggly about the whole situation.   It

I started quizzing about 2 years ago when my best friend got me involved on his quiz team. Since then I have rarely missed a quiz at our regular venue on Monday Nights.

Over the years people have come and gone, at one point we had a regular team of 5, that kicked a lot of ass and took a lot of names. We even competed in Geek Bowl 2013 under the name How I Met Your Mothra.

People have come and gone since then, but at the very least, 3 of our team remained quizzing every Monday. After Geek Bowl, the bestie got hired as a quizmaster, so I decided to do the same the next time auditions rolled around.

So here I am, Quizmaster Paddycake. I started at Molly Malone's in Spring, and now I shall be taking over Cedar Creek on Monday nights as well. Big shoes to fill there, but I feel confident it'll all be awesome!

See you at quiz!

Sweat and Vinegar
Uncle Buck Mulligan

Probably not among the top 10 combinations on my list of "Things I Want To Be The Essence Of My Hosting Area", but definitely preferable to the more cliche piss and vinegar. The sweat just happens when it's July, I'm sitting amongst a bunch of electronics, and occasionally running around trying to get things done. The vinegar... that was pretty much my own fault. I managed to break an entire bottle of malt vinegar onto the newly retouched floors of our beloved venue, resulting in a pretty unpleasant stage smell. Making it even more unforgivable was the fact that I did it stone-cold sober, as I spent the weekend with a sore throat and decided it would be a good idea not to drink.    Speaking

Two years.  A glorious two years we've been doing Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at Dante's Fire.  First and foremost, I want to give a huge shout-out to Jon (the owner) for bringing us in, and for keeping us around for all this time.  Also, I'd like to profusely thank the staff that have taken good care of us all, hosts and quizzers alike for all that time!  You kids all rock!  Of course there wouldn't be quiz without quizzers, so many words of thanks to you all as well!  There's almost always a healthy amount of sass thrown around each week and honestly, that just makes things all the more fun.

...for those patrons that just can't grasp the whole "Don't shout out the answers" rule.  I have ways to make you remember. *wink, wink* Really though, tonight was a lot of fun.  My first night with no back up, and I feel like things went pretty darn well.  I had a great crowd of quizzers, including the lovely ladies of the BiPolar Express who returned after being with us last week.  Team I Wish I Was Smarter and team Jamison were celebrating a birthday and were definitely the two most vocal teams in the lounge. Team NannyKat knew they would have to bail early, but played hard during their time with us. Team Low Expectations were a little late to join us half way

We had a fun time this evening over at the Draft House! The rain- and the ceiling! - couldn’t hold us!

Too bad there are no points awarded for that. Nine Inch Males, you guys made me wonder if that was a Magic Mike reference, a music reference, or maybe just wishful thinking?

Take My 50 Cent Away
AdamFedyski

Can you believe that the rapper 50 Cent is 40 years old? It kinda makes you wonder how long you could live after getting shot nine times, don’t it? If you just take a few minutes to listen to “Candy Shop”, it will help you remember what it sounds like when a creepy man gets a little older. Love him or hate him, he was ranked as the third best selling rapper last decade behind Eminem and Nelly according to Billboard, the authority on all things related to music. So take that for whatever it’s worth… We had some tough rounds tonight. Whether it was talking about the city of Berlin or connecting famous initialisms with guys who
