How Close are We to iWatches for Your Penis?
Lord of Pirates

Hey all. Hope your Memorial Day was a memorable one. I had a pretty great weekend. For the first time in my life I actually had fun fishing. Of course the secret to having fun while fishing is catching fish. I got six, so yay, new personal record for me. Now let's catch how our quiz played out this week.   Our Round One was all about that rank. We gave two clues and our quizzers had to figure out the common military rank between them. They ranged from absurdly easy (yellow clad character in "Clue" or a bearded chicken magnate are obviously colonels) to a little more difficult (Commodore 64 was for those old

10 teams came out to Cole’s last night to show off the geek knowledge! Round 1 started the night off with a round on military ranks. Congrats to Smarty Pints, and Car Ram Rod for scoring perfect rounds! Round 2 featured a music round with dramatic tempo changes. Some teams did really well on this round while others had tough time. Round 3 featured a 50/50 round on new gadgets. Teams did well on this round! At the end of 3 rounds Smarty Pints took the lead followed by Beyonce in second and The Kazans in third!

This week's quiz was what I like to refer to as a "hangover quiz": we were all recovering—both from the revelry of last week's two-year anniversary blowout, as well as from the previous day's holiday. No apology is necessary. But, I'll have you know that, for once, I was not actually hungover when this week's quiz began. I was in perfect health and hydration and delivered (I think) in the same manner that I always do, week in and week out (when I am often hungover). I'm not trying to brag nor to look superior. I'm really just curious if you could tell a difference. (I'm hoping that you could not, because I've got some shit to justify over here.)   What

Quizmaster Zero: Scoobses Edition

So I had quite an interesting day today before I came out to read sweet nothings to ze geeks at Playground.  As part of my responsibilities at my "big boy" job during the week, I have the unenviable task of reviewing security camera footage and suspending pool keys for rule violations.  It really is as exciting as I make it sound here.  So after reviewing a bunch of footage from over Memorial Day Weekend, I made a bunch of notes, cross-referenced keycards with names, all of that fuss and hoopla, and I had my suspension letters ready to go.  I'd like to interject a brief side-note here:  this fuckery is literally the least favorite part of my job; I

Something Sure Smelled Rank...
AlexRice

...But it was just me, because I biked to tonight's quiz. Quiz in My Pants and Jared Sucks certainly didn't stink, as they came away with hefty Uptown Tavern & Rooftop gift cards thanks to finishing in first and second places, respectively. Nothing like a good tempo change, is there? Tonight's Round 2 was heavy on the rock greats and light on disposable pop, featuring the greatest band ever, R.E.M., and an ironically disposable pop song of theirs that I enjoy and defend, "Shiny Happy People." Radiohead, The Beatles and Franz Ferdinand also came by to give everyone a lesson in switching things up mid-song. Roses and strawberries are in the

I am Out of Context at the TRAILHEAD!
The Radness That Is Brecken

(The Radness's Note: I shall begin this blog where I begin most every blog: in Nonsense Town. That is where I live and that is where we meet. In Nonsense Town, nothing is sacred, nothing is logical, and my opinion is the only thing that matters.) The problem with writing this is that those who need to read it, wont. Just like the bastards that needed to STFU tonight weren't listening to me talking. Life happens. I can't deny it; I can't stop it. I wish I could. I wish I had a magical wand that would erase the past, put us at any point in our lives that we desired, but with all the knowledge we have now. But that can't

It's hard to be humble when you're so fucking smart...

The Radness That Is Brecken has been a quiz mistress since Aug. 2007. Yeah, that's a long fucking time. It is said the only way to stop her is to kill her, and, really, good luck with that.

When not belittleing you on a mic, Brecken is busy hating people (see her neck tattoo), and really not caring about much... except GWD, Trailhead, her pets, and beer.

She lives her life like the Arthur Balfour quote: "Nothing matters very much, and few things matter at all."

Pet peeves include people that yawn without covering their mouth, those that say "WHAT?" instead of "Pardon?", and people that accuse Miss B of being a bad pet owner. That shit will get you punched in the mouth. Seriously. Ask anybody.

Check out her other writing misadventures at Writing As I Write. You know you want to, so stop being all douchy about it.

And please remember: much like the Wu-Tang Clan, Brecken ain't nothing to fuck with.

U Quizzin' U2 to Me?
AlexRice

I've got one more question from the Missing Persons round. Winners of Bulldog Downtown gift cards Tuesday night: Killz Dat Skillz. Answer: Trivin for the Night. Their 65 points propelled them to first place, while Killz won a tie for second place by being physically present (Grain Belt had vacated the premises by the time I read the final standings.) You're goddamn right The Edge is the other member of U2. If he isn't, what guitarist did I just see play two nights in Phoenix with the third-greatest rock band ever, and who will I see on stage in Denver next weekend? Some teams try to win their way into my heart by

Walter Strawberry: Breaking Quik
Jam Sammich

Alright, so tonight in our final bonus question of the night, I asked my dear, sweet quizzers -- some of which included a rather sizable of children -- to tell me which male-only body part intactivists are against removing. After a handful of guesses of "penis," one innocent-enough looking woman had scrawled down the correct answer of "foreskin."   In my excitement of finally seeing the correct answer, I proceeded to hold the microphone too closely to my mouth and loudly exclaim, "FORESKIN," which reverberated surprisingly throughout the venue. Not only did I scare myself, but I most likely earned the attention of many a non-quizzer as well.   After
