Pure Imagination
Jeremy "Murder She Wrote" C

Growing up, one of the movies I watched a ton was Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. I would watch it every time it aired. I always wanted to go into the chocolate factory. The place was magical and it's made of candy. I am heartbroken at the loss of Gene Wilder. He is one of those actors that you will struggle to find a bad movie he was in. Everything he did with Mel Brooks was amazing. Everything he did with Richard Pryor was hilarious. He entertained people for the sheer joy of entertainment. He was a Wisconsin legend and made us all proud. The words to express my sadness are not there. I have no words. Thank you for making my childhood magical. Thank you for making me believe in Oompa Loompas.

Hello, my name is Jeremy and I'm a geek who drinks. What does it mean to be a geek who drinks? I have random knowledge on things like music. I can quote Pulp Fiction like it's no one's business. On my GPS Darth Vader tells me where to go. That's the fun part. The bad part is I also drink. When I drink, I write blogs that have the word "fuck" in it a lot. I make up stories of things that happened in my mind. I also delete my own bio and really don't remember doing it. Thankfully though, I never sucked dick for coke. That was Bob Saget. 

The moral of the story, it's ok to be a geek who drinks, in fact I encourage it. I encourage you to come down to my venue on a Monday and drink it out with me. I'll quiz you, you give me right answers, and don't be a dick and shout anything out.

This was not the Harry Potter quiz...
Hadji

While I certainly appreciated the enthusiasm, Wizard on the Streets Dementor in the Sheets, the Harry Potter quiz was on Saturday, so your fantastic team name had no relevance to tonight’s quiz.  Speaking of team names, our champions, Lauren’s Big Dumb Face both made fun of one of their teammates and varied their name throughout the quiz with iterations like Lauren’s Big Dumb Lovely Face, Lauren’s Big Dumb Exceptional Face, and of course Lauren’s Big (in a Nice Way) Dumb Face.  The Harry Potter team took second tonight, which slightly made up for the fact that they apparently forgot to go to the quiz on Saturday.  Tangent:

Jake

Hey, gang! It’s Jake here, and tonight I was here with Quizmistress-in-training Kelly, who got to pick up the mic and read a few rounds. You know, when you all see me up here, I get it: You think, “Dude, any monkey with a microphone can do that.” Well folks, I’m not Davy Jones or Micky Dolenz (extra points if you get that joke), but I can tell you it’s not as easy as you think. First off, I have to roll out of bed at the crack of noon – NO LATER! After a power-up breakfast of whatever cold item I left on the counter from a night of hard drinking Smirnoff Ices and even harder crying, I hit the gym, where I wait for dudes to leave their shit

In a land far, far away, in a time in the not-too-distant future, in an era dominated by dragons, one man was born - nay - created - nay - FORGED from the fires of Valhella (which is part Valhalla, part... well, you get it), and came upon this earth seeking geeks, not for punching, but in order to be a part of their geekery. He searched far, wide, deep, across, shallow and even in the fourth dimension for eons until he came upon the great city of Portland, where the geeks flowed like PBR. "Get thee to a nerdery!" they cried, and it was here that the man struck his mighty staff into the earth with the force of a million bluebirds carrying a thousand hippopotami carrying twenty-three tanks, and the earth opened upon to him, releasing the demonspawn of Australia, which all happened to be drunk upon Foster's. After defeating them with his vorpal sword of might, he descended upon Portland (and related metropolitan area) to take his place at the throne of geeks. He made slaves of many, including Jake, who runs pub quizzes!

Wow, what an awesome chaperoned quiz tonight, major props to Kris for being an awesome trainer. I must admit, I was a bit taken aback by the fact that there were 12 teams playing tonight, especially since it’s my first time running a solo quiz, but everyone had a great time and there were tons of laughs along the way.                 Some of my favorite moments from tonight’s quiz: The collective groan over the Real Housewives question, which was surprisingly equal to the collective groan that followed when I read the answer to that question.

It’s about 30 minutes until start time here tonight at the bar, and the main room is a-buzz. I see some regular faces out there, as well as first-timers, but all are vying for the first place prize as well as substantial bragging rights. The Visual Rounds have been passed out, and I already see teams conspiring, trying their damnedest to best their competition. One team even has a creaming toddler/baby!

I have no idea when it started raining in Denton, but everything at Harvest House was wet when I arrived. That didn't stop anybody from coming out. Neither did the rain that started right before round 6. The covered area has more than enough space to accommodate all the teams that came out.

Happy Fantasy Football Season
Cap'n Brendan

It’s draft season! I’ve had two fantasy football drafts in the last 36 hours, and another one planned for a couple of days from now. Football isn’t my first love – it’s baseball. But I will give respect to football on account of the fact that fantasy football has given it mainstream relevance that baseball – the originator of fantasy sports – has never achieved. People love watching football because, thanks to fantasy, they are emotionally invested in players on teams they’d never otherwise have heard of. Five years ago, it was easy to dominate the casual fan at fantasy football. The lack of interest and widely available “insider”

Concerning Teletubby Bukkake and the Abyss Gazing Back
Handsome Mike

“So if you Google search ‘Teletubby Bukkake,’ it doesn’t pull up what you’d expect. It’s pretty disappointing actually. There’s a lot of pictures of bukkake, and a lot of pictures of Teletubbies. But none of Teletubby Bukkake.”   This is the kind of shit you have to deal with working quiz nights. Better still, this was a single person team. As Friedrich Nietzsche once said, "[...]if thou gaze long into an abyss, the abyss will also gaze into thee.”

New Blood
Elijah

Three new(ish) teams? I love when we get newcomers on the prison yard. It shakes things up in all the best ways. A Team Has No Name, Touching Cloth, and Vagenda of Manicide all stomped onto the field ready to rock. This quiz really had some odd ball variables thrown in the mix and the questions were way out of my depth; Props to every team who stayed afloat. Domino, one of the house champs, started out strong and stayed the fan favorite throughout the game. If I was a gambling man, I would have staked my fortune on them, but lucky for me, I'm broke as hell. Right when I thought they sealed it, Vagenda snatched

This week’s winners: The one and only (and I mean that in the sense that I hope they are the one and only team that goes by this name) Touched by an Uncle.   Best/worst team name of the week: I have to give it up to Rob Lowe Me…they got me. Either they’re clever or I’m just an idiot, but the truth is probably somewhere in between.   Best guess of the week: Multiple teams guessed Galaxy Quest in place of Dude, Where’s My Car, which is either an insult to the former or a compliment to the latter.

This past weekend, I made the trek out to Ft.

After quiz ended, I trekked to the Dallas Zoo (at night!) in honor of fellow Quizmaster Ben’s birthday.  He’s old.  I could lie to you and tell you that the only reason I went to the zoo was to celebrate his birthday….but then where would we

"Why Was Richard At Backcountry?" he asked...
He Who Shall Be Ignored/Obeyed About 50/50

Arfwyldo and Sloopy were at loose ends. It was a Monday night. What in the hell were they supposed to do on a Monday night? They had this question hit them as they were drinking a strawberry, sweet potato and pumpkin saison at Backcountry Pizza and so it really shouldn’t have been a surprise when they saw a poster for quiz, that very night. And so that was how they elected to spend their evening. A few calls netted some friends, colleagues and hangers-on. A team was formed. For a change, they didn’t suck. Which was good. But, as with all things, the rails eventually came off.

Great googly moogly! We played a fun eight rounds at Blu Wolf tonight, and I’m capping off my evening by typing this thing out as I’m filling up on comic book vlogs. I mean, man, could life get any better? Probably not. Well, probably, but it’s still pretty good. Best answer of the evening: when a team incorrectly identified the rough plot from a children’s book as being from Dr. Suess’ Thorax. I mean, I guess I never thought too much about Theodor Geisel’s midsection, but I have now. I wonder if he had two extra sets of arms coming out of it… I mean, that would be great for productivity, right? RIGHT? YO, so anyway: good game tonight. We

Who Brought that Girl?

We all received the sad news today that the world has lost Gene Wilder. You all know I love Willy Wonka, and people who really know me know that I have a small obsession. I met the Wonka kids a few years ago and struck up a friendship with Denise Nickerson, aka Violet. What a fabulous person. She was the sweetest. I’ll never forget the night I got a text from her telling me to turn on the Oprah channel, because Oprah was interviewing Peter Ostrum (Charlie Bucket). I was so excited. Best text ever. Anyway, needless to say, today was a sad day. Here are some random thoughts: Congrats to quiz regular, Danny! Danny got married over the weekend. Weeeeeee! Awe, I miss John Candy.

Only One Gene Wilder Team Name?
Troy

A giant of comedy has left us today. An event that is always ripe for topical, honorary team naming in the quiz world. I was holding my butt waiting for the onslaught of Wonky Willys and Nice Knockers team names, but to no avail. Only one of the teams at Grinders this week decided to pay tribute to this great comedic icon. They Bring Back Gene Wilder's Brain, Give Him Abby Normal's Brain, just so happened to be the winning team. Coincidence? May the great Wilder stay forever Young Frankenstein in our hearts! In a quiz filled with teams with surprisingly heavy and extensive knowledge of crappy

Hello Quizzers! The name is Jay and this Quizmaster's story begins in Skokie, Illinois, but since very few people from the Boston-area know where that is, let's just call it Chicago; I mean, its a direct subway line and only two towns over....FINE, I grew up in a suburb, are you happy now? Graduated from Babson College in 2013 with a Bachelor's in Business Administration and a Master's in Accounting. I'm a nerd by day, and a geek by night. Decided to stay out here and give this East-coast thing a shot. I like to follow the Vin Diesel school of Geekdom. If you want to compare lifts and gym routines, I'll be there; but if you want to geek out, and I mean if you REALLY want to geek out, I'm your go-to-guy. -Music? 5x year attendee of Lollapalooza Music Festival, 3x Karaoke champion in 2008. I will stand firmly behind the idea that RHCP needs John Frusciante, Progressive R&B is the music of the future, and that Drum & Bass is the best EDM sub-genre. -Video Games? Been playing since Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the NES, and haven't stopped since. FPS, MOBA, JRPG, MMORPG, whatever the hell Katamari Damacy was (other than completely awesome), I got you covered. -TV? I may or may not still reference lines from Archer, South Park, Futurama, and the Simpsons on a daily basis. -Movies? Been watching them constantly since my dad made me watch Bloodsport with Jean-Claude Van Damme at age 5. Favorite View Askew (Kevin Smith) comedies are Clerks and Chasing Amy, least favorites are Mallrats and Clerks II; I refuse to count Jersey Girl as an actual member of that universe. -General Geekiness? I had a 3-month stint as Dungeon Master for my D&D group, I hosted a LAN-party about a week before writing this bio, and I make sure to check IGN, Kotaku, and Reddit on a daily (closer to hourly)-basis With all that said, I hope to see you on the quizzing battlegrounds soon.
