What a great time I had subbing at The Lost Lake. I’m always delighted when Chaz says he needs a sub. Web had a great time, and I can’t wait until Chaz needs a sub again.   We had eight teams competing tonight and Chip Off the Old Block decisively won their $50 git card. Then we had a tie for second place, so we had to have a tie-breaker question which I made worth 2 points. Eggplant handily defeated Nobody Puts Baby In a Corner to win this, netting them a $20 gift card.   Thank you all for coming out and having an awesome quiz with me. Chaz will be back to his usual Shenanigans next week,

And now their Rumble is Ended
Sean-Oh

Well folks, it was pretty solid final day of the Rumble season. I for one will be sad to see the teams visiting from Sac leave us, but I hope they come back for visits sometime. Let's work on some quizzness. R1- Best round I've seen in a while, seeing as how it was a round all about the REAL endings to a bunch of fairy tales and children's stories. The fucked up endings and plot points, kinda like how Sleeping Beauty actually wakes up when the baby she bore while sleeping sucks milk from her nipple. R2- Audio Round: Episode 1, the Phantom Chorus-Solo. Yep, we were graced with some more songs where the chorus melody is played as the "guitar solo". Lazy fucks.R3-

It is extremely out of character for me to post a blog right after quiz, but honestly, I have a giant pile of clothes on my bed that I'm avoiding hanging. In addition to that, I also need to removwe my makeup and change my sheets. I also need to sleep. Sleep is a thing I totally need to do tonight.  UHG! Being 25 is hard! Just kidding. I should have been doing all those things at 24 too.  Anyway, I'll make this quick because all my burps taste like friend cheese and horchata. Round 1: Holy cow. Spoiler alerts. And additionally, these tales are daaaaark. This isn't you standard sad story. This was evil.

Laura Comer

Welcome back to the Laura and Kim team! Missed our speedy rounds, quick wit and shut down responses to your terrible questions? We missed giving them to you too. Hope you enjoyed our summer hiatus. I did a great job putting off all the things I said I would do this summer.  Huge thanks to Lalenya for switching days with me! You'll see me on Sundays at 6:30 now and Lalenya on Tuesdays at 7:00 pm. I have a class Tuesday nights just so that there's one more place in your lives that you get to awkwardly look at me and try to think about where you know me from. At least at APU we can all be proud of our academia during those encounters. Rather than our LUSH interactions where

Laura originates from Cleveland, OH. And came to Anchorage via NY, DC, NM, and CA. No, she's not from Alaska. Yes, you can remind me all the time about how many winters you've had and how winter is coming. She will just keep letting her mind drift to Game of Thrones.  

In the daytime hours, Laura will be seen admiring her handsome dog, Truman, speedwalking with coffee in hand, throwing rocks at big coal companies, and keeping the couch in front of her television warm. 

As a poli sci grad and NPR aficionado, she can pronounce most Middle Eastern dictators names with ease, but cannot tell you anything about pop culture and will likely mispronounce Rhianna (She had a student named Rhiannon a while back, she had nothing in common with Rhianna). 

She kept her 6th grade students entertained with ridiculous faces she doesn't realize she's making while often passing judgement on everything she sees or hears. #ItsNotYou #ItsHer #TooEasyToRead

Say goodnight to Elm Street
Jeremy "Murder She Wrote" C

Many of you may not know this, but I am a fan of horror. This weekend we lost a legend. Wes Craven passed away and I am devastated from this loss. When I was a kid, I remember when my parents got our first VCR. They went to the local video store and rented A Nightmare on Elm Street. I remember not being allowed to watch it, but I watched it from the stairway ducked behind the couch and listened to those eerie scrapes that Freddie did with his knives. It scared me, but I couldn't pull away. I watched this burnt up guy kill people in their dreams. Already a fan of the horror genre (I was allowed to see Poltergeist at the theater since it was PG, and I saw the Exorcist way too early in life)

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 or a Tuesday 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.

Super fun night at the ole Forum Puyallup!  We had to test our "gently shush your neighbors" policy multiple times, but it's probably because folks were having an amazing time.  Right?  :-)   Round one was great!  I love the original, twisted, and slightly macabre old fairy tales.  Teams George Michael's Jean Supplier, Almost Strangers and McKinley's in Deniali all pulled in perfect rounds.  What a fine way to start off the evening!  (p.s. MCKINLEY'S IN DENIALI???  Are you kidding me!  Favorite name of the night!)   Our audio round two ran the scoring spectrum.  The Quizlamic Extremists

Holly Jolly Quiz Miss

Tonight’s quiz started out awfully macabre. We talked about boiling wolves, cutting the heads off frogs, and eating grandmothers under the auspices of “Children’s Stories.” Then there was a question about Jeffrey Dahmer- but things sort of drifted into happy, trippy madcap drug land while we watched movies featuring trips of various types. No one could remember that apparently Rosemary’s Baby involved a black sea captain, but everyone remembered how effed up Dumbo got from discarded clown champagne.  Round 2 was a long time coming, I think; I’ve been saying forever how I think an

Dustin

A few non quizzy props to start off the night. First and foremost big ups to my friends the Mortal Wombats for coming back for quiz AFTER freaking doing Hood to Coast. That's a lot of running. A very outdated mode of transportation really, but still they should be commended for doing it for sure, and still sore limbs and all, and hitting the Quiz. They win a fair amount that might have something to do with it. Actually this weeks defending champs, so thanks guys for coming in to try to defend the crown. Second and second most, thanks to my new friends Super Clever Team Name. I'll likely NOT sue you for copyright infringment for taking the name I threw

Jared's 6" Italian Sausage Takes it Home

Is the title of this blog offensive? Maybe, but for the purpose of tonight’s quiz at Prohibition, it was entirely accurate. Congratulations to Jared’s 6” Italian Sausage for their come from behind victory in the final round of tonight’s quiz. They took home the first place gift certificate and an insatiable desire to quiz again. Am I making things worse? It depends on what your definition of “worse” is. Some people might say Detroit is a worse city than Atlanta because they had more violent crimes per capita last year. However, this does also mean that Detroit was ranked higher than Atlanta in this less-than-prestigious

Martha Stewart Or Plaxico Burress? Come On!
JoeMills

The final day of August, 2015.  I must say this month absolutely flew by.  I've never had such a ridiculously busy month in my life.  On August 1st I was floating in the 87 degree waters of the Atlantic Ocean off of Folly Beach, South Carolina.  The next week I was locked in an bathroom stall in a room escape challenge with three Quebecoise in Toronto, Canada.  The week after that I was on stage at the Avalon in Hollywood taking fourth place in a beard competition, followed by a day at El Matador beach in Malibu in the freeze-your-balls-off-cold waters of the Pacific.  Three days after that I made the grueling climb up (and even more grueling down) Mt.

The Sweet Science
The Duke of Allston

  Boxing isn't quite what it used to be.  Probably because it's too damn expensive to follow.  I feel bad for anybody who forked over $100 to watch the underwhelming Mayweather/Pacquiao bout in May.  Never even crossed my mind to watch it.  You know why the NFL is popular?  Because they had the sense to get the games onto free TV.  There are a lot of folks out there cutting the cord these days.  Maybe the big bouts should be on Netflix.   Of course, one need not shell out a Benjamin to see boxing.  Why, for a mere entry fee to benefit leukemia research, you can go see regular player Christina

I grew up in Burlington, VT, and moved here on a whim in 2003.  Became the quiz presenter at White Horse Tavern in 2005, where I worked for 7 years for another quiz company. Then Geeks Who Drink came a-callin'.  I first rejected their overtures, but joined the family when they offered to pay me in hair gel.

When I'm not hosting your quiz or hitting on you, I enjoy horse racing, kayaking,and baseball.  I once won $33,000 on a $48 horse ticket.  I also participated in the 2012 and 2014 Horse Player World Series, and in the 2014 National Handicapping Championship, both elite handicapping tournaments held annually in Las Vegas.

I was on "Judge Mathis" in 2004, and also appeared locally on the Red Sox trivia game show "The Batters' Box" in 2009.  Yet, I still get recognized for appearing for ten seconds on a casting special for "Beauty and the Geek" in 2005.  Seriously, it's aired on television maybe twice, and people recognize it.  It's stupendous.

The Moral of This Story Is...

Tonight might have seemed like a good night, if you don't look too closely at it.  In fact, if you look solely at tonight's quiz at Alamo Drafthouse, you might even think tonight was excellent. There weren't many errors during tonight's pronunciations.  There were some sports questions for those who want them.  There weren't MANY sports questions for those who didn't want them.  We had karaoke during our first audio round- three times, actually! You, as a quizzer, might even go so far as to say that tonight, your glass was half full.  You'd be wrong. I stuck around after quiz to talk about our Doctor Who Theme Quiz (September 17th

Apart from two misguided years in my youth, I've been a tried and true Texan all my life.

Here's a little bit about me: 

  • Shamelessly obsessed with all things Harry Potter, Supernatural, film, and BBC Sherlock.
  • Did gymnastics for 9 years...and yes, I can still do a flip.
  • I've auditioned for So You Think You Can Dance.  I did this to fulfill a bucket list item.  They told me a I was fat. They lie.
  • My favorite movies are a toss up between The Shawshank Redemption, The Princess Bride, The Usual Suspects, Lucky Number Slevin, and Love Actually.
  • My music tastes are as eclectic as my movie tastes.
  • I love to talk!

So come swing by and say hi!

Unnecessary synonyms and illustrations.

More information is almost always better.  Almost.  When we are dealing with Presidents, quarterbacks, and movie sequels it is always better to give me more information.  That way if there is more than one possible answer you will get it correct.  If I ask for the President who did xyz and you say Roosevelt, well things could get awkward because there are two Roosevelt presidents.  Two Manning quarterbacks, six Star Wars movies...you get the idea. In the case of testicles it is unnecessary to give four synonyms.  I got what you mean.  All of these appeared on answer sheets: testes, testicles, balls, nuts, cajones, grapenuts,

Holy crap it's only a week until I'm a married girl! That's mindblowing to me. Time has gone so quickly, and it still is!

I'd Sooner Get Munsoned Out Here In The Middle Of Nowhere
EricBurch

Great to be back for yet another week of quizzing at Fado Irish Pub, and we had a heck of a crowd tonight despite the unexpected shower that popped up. Tonight, I was undoubtedly most impressed with our team name prowess. We had some great teams tonight, and they brought it out in their names: And Don't Call Me Shirley (I'm a sucker for an Airplane! reference). I Guess There Won't Be A Scream 5. Denali Parton. Rectum...Damn Near Killed Em. The 1979 Odor Eaters Champion. But they still had to have a quiz tonight, and the competition was fierce. Five teams finished in the 70s, and it came down to two in a sudden death round after tying at 78 points.
