Just Because There’s No Pictures Doesn’t Mean it Didn’t Happen
Kris

So, a quick glance to the left of your screen will show you the state of my phone as I walked into the bar last night. While the vertical stripes are visually stimulating and help give my phone a slimmer look, unfortunately whatever is causing that also would not let me open my phone to use the camera or anything else for that matter. The good news is that I still have 18 months of payments left on that particular device, so I will be able to continue my patriotic American duty of contributing to Apple’s profits even though the phone is broke. What a relief!!   As for the quiz last night, well it went splendidly. After an impromptu survey, we learned that

Chinchillas Domination (must be stopped!)
Steve Crane

Hey Everybody I’m Steve and I’m here to give you updates into the Vintage Lounge Pub Quiz Slaughterhouse. The Chinchillas must be stopped . Last night was my fourth legitimate quiz, and I had a pretty decent time.  The rain kept many teams from making the treacherous walk, lest they melt from the contact with water.  Those sons a witches. Rainy day Pub Quiz had 4 teams: Flowers for Megatron, Token Brown Guy, We Don’t Work Here but We’ll Take Your Money, and… ugh… the Chinchillas.  Seriously, this team has won every time I’ve hosted.  If there is another team who could, y’know like… stop them

Jack Nicklaus is From My High School
RESII

Sadly, Arnold Palmer died this week. In honour, Geeks Who Drink wrote a lot of questions about golf, including one on Palmer’s greatest rival, Jack William Nicklaus. Arguably the greatest golfer ever, Nicklaus won 18 majors. He also went to my high school. Nicklaus’s nickname is the Golden Bear. Do you know how he received that? Because our high school mascot is the Golden Bear. OK, that was pretty self-indulgent. I apologise. As for the quiz, eleven teams competed, including some real heavyweights. Timmy's First Dinger, a team honouring former New York Jet Tim Tebow’s foray into baseball, took the crown. In second, Cinco

RESII was born in the 17th state of the union under the sweltering summer sun.  From humble beginnings, this future Buckeye became third best player on the middle school chess team (out of four).  After that, his life became a blur of Mountain Dew and worse decisions.  In his spare time, he enjoys highlights of Buster Tillman, not giving change to the homeless, and Harper Lee novels.  This is his first production of Geeks Who Drink.  He would like to thank his lucky stars and all his deceased pets for helping him cope with the good times.

What Happened?
Logan

Really. Last night we ended 15 minutes early. How? What did we do wrong? I mean I think we did everything right. I read all the questions, played all the clips, told a couple jokes...But, we still finished early. Well, don't get used to it.  On to the quiz! There were no ties. THERE. WERE. NO. TIES.  Coming in third place a team with a score of [insert score here], Makers of Moisture. In second place, a team with a score of [insert score here] which appears to be more than [insert trid place score here] but less than [insert first place score here], and clearly a reference to [insert SNL sketch title here], More

It Wasn't Rain, Just Heavy Dew
Bersonality

Hey there, Pub Quiz Players!   So, they think a little (and I mean little) rain is going to stop our pub quiz? Well, if it had continued past 7:00pm, who knows what would have happened. Luckily, the drizzle (which now sounds like something Snoop Dogg would say) ended right before we started, so thanks, nature! I think the clouds may have deterred some in coming out to play, but it was great to see all of you joining in on our pub quiz.   TIDBITS ABOUT THE QUIZ:   Thanks for the honesty about where you knew the nickname for oil.

Throw Me The Spheroid, Brah!
Brittany "Michael Bay" St. Julien

What a competition! Not only were there some strong contenders in the game, but we even saw some contenders who were not in the game! That's right, I see you, couple-with-your-own-notepad-keeping-track-of-what-your-score-would-be. Thanks for hanging out with us! Question, though: why oh why wouldn't you guys put yourselves in the running to win the stuff? I bet you could have won so much of the stuff!  That'd be like if I went to Build-A-Bear Workshop and spent two hours customizing a sweet little teddy that can giggle and say "Brittany is cool and strong and powerful and not weird at all",

Friends call me Michael Bay because I love action and make a lot of sound effects with my mouth.

Well, nobody calls me that, really. But they should for the above reasons.

2)Heinlein- Stranger in a Strange Land
3)Silverman- The Bedwetter

Big night at Jerk tonight! We had 7 very enthusiastic play. Everybody wanted some shelter from that torrential downpour outside. And I am flattered that they came to take that shelter with me.  A very mysterious group of gentlemen (an Englishman, a gentleman from Guatemala, and, as far as I can tell, three other... Americans?) were at quiz tonight, regaling me with stories about their professor named Dr. Mike and his joy over the English language and also their upcoming trip to Germany and how they definitely didn't meet online. OK. We also had Team Keanu/Neo/Every Combination of two words in the English language, and look at their precious faces when

Woolakers take a lap around the victory lake!

Congrats to the Woodlakers….in the hunt each week, and they pulled it out this time!  Potent Potables showed up with another strong showing.  Solid every week.  And William Zane, after getting out of the gates quickly, eeked out third place with a tiebreaker question over the Pumpkin Spice Girls.  What is this tweeter thing anyway? I have to admit, at my age, it hurt me right the feels that many more teams knew Pitbull than INXS.  Ughh.  Next you’ll tell me that Kanye has more than 20 grammys.  We found out that Benedict Arnold lived to a ripe-old age of 60 (life expectancy

Hungry Hungry Hippos No!
The Brennagade

So hippos are probably the single most terrifying animal in the world. Like yeah there are gators and tigers and sharks and bears and all sorts of other animals that will ruin your day, but hippos have this reputation of being dumb and slow and hungry hungry that is pretty undeserved. Like “Oh cute, it’s a river horse.” No. It’s a 5 ton murder machine that can be as tall as you, can outrun you, sweat blood, and attacks without warning. Hippo attacks aren’t provoked. They usually just decide they’ve had enough of you and ruin your day. Everyone is busy losing sleep and avoiding the ocean because of the 3-5 shark attacks a year, but hippos kill over

Schadenfreude
Fish Boxer [><>]

Until last night I was convinced that Those Assholes Over There were infallible. Nearly every week they come in and take first or second easily. Last night? After our first scoring break they were in last place. The only reason they even took 5th place was because 3 other teams had to leave early. So there we have it, they can be beat.   RIP Donald Sutherland on the other hand... I'm still waiting for them to slip up. It will happen eventually.   WINNERS

It was Quiz For A Cause Night at Finnerty's and we had a very nice turn out.  Over $300 was raised to benefit Lupus Awareness Research. 15 Teams competed for top prize.  I feel bad because I think I jinxed Justice For Barb they saved their joker and I mouthed off about how they would probably win.  Well they ended up losing by two points.  Please don't be mad at me! We had a lot of first time teams competing.  I managed to catch a team cheating which was amazing because in a year I've never managed to do that. At the end of the night Paul's Living On The Couch pulled out a one point win over E=MCHAMMERED. I

Ex Machina, a bit of nerd talk, and YMMV
Seth

Another fantastically fun night at Resolute Brewing Company. Last night was another example — the game was very competitive and came down to single questions. The top 4 teams were separated by only 4 points, which you can see by looking the final standings down and to the left. I really thought that Ex Machina should have been one of the AI examples. I guess you could argue whether she “went rogue” or merely executed her programming, but you could make that charge easily against HAL 9000 (in fact, that’s the entire thesis of his “malfunction.”) I don’t think that a legitimate

Invasion of the newbies!  Lots and lots of new faces playing the quiz tonight.  Normally I would say everyone was at the Firefly quiz but that is not the case at all for us poor souls in LA.  So y’all had no excuses for abandoning me tonight.   Looks like you all got pretty defeated by Round 2 tonight.  I have to agree that it is difficult when you know all of your answers are supposed to add up to something and they don’t.  And who knows Hot Chip anyway?  So it wasn’t like you could work backwards with that round either.  At least

Holy crap there are a lot of you!
The Quizmaster General

So, we jumped from 9 teams last week (when I had a scoring girl) to 16 tonight (when I had none). You guys love to do that to me. But it was a fast and furious game, and I need to do the following shoutouts: To Rogue Squadron, for getting 4 out of the 5 bonus beers, and to Donkey Punch, who got every single 8-point round perfect. That's really pretty damn impressive. Here is the full quiz recap: Round 1: Perfect Rounds going to Donkey Punch, the Lucky Stiffs, Unexpected Dickens, Last Place, Bigly, Senpai and The Low Bar.

Yes, the mustache is real.

Hey everybody!  My name is Richard Rasner, but I used to be known as "The Quiz Pimp" (a nickname given to me on my first day ever on the job as a GWD QM.) I'm the guy up on the old-fashioned microphone calling out your quiz and playing awesomely terrible music during the scoring breaks.  These days a new venue change means a new nickname, so now I'm apparently The Quizmaster General.

When I'm not Quizmastering my day job is as a fine art nude photographer under the moniker "Unique Nudes" -- That's right, my day to day life is taking pictures of naked people all over the world. And if that doesn't make you hate me enough, I also photograph live music, and spend my evenings hanging out backstage with rock stars such as Billy Idol, NIN, Papa Roach and more.  You can check out my Facebook if you don't believe me, but sadly it's all true.  I'm not just a geek, I'm one of the rare super-cool geeks.

So why be a Quizmaster?  Because I love quizzes and I love all of you.  That's right, without my players I would be nothing.  Your amusing team names and crazy banter keep me coming back week after week.  So keep coming! Keep talking to me! And win those fabulous prizes!
