Yup. That Dentist is a Terrible Person.
Taylor

We had multiple team names dedicated to that scumbag, piss-poor excuse for a human being that we all know as Walter Palmer, D.D.S.  In case you've been living under a rock, that's the name of the two legged waste of protoplasm who paid $55k to go to Africa, illegally lure a male lion named Cecil off of a no-kill animal preserve (by tying meat to a car, because that's how REAL hunters do it, ammiright?), shoot the lion with a compound bow and arrow - but only enough to injure it -, then "track" it as it bled out for 40 hours before finally cornering the dying lion and shooting it in the head with a gun.  But not even that was enough for Walter Palmer and his piece of shit guides,

Can you tell a rainbow, "Hey - stop being a rainbow!"?  NO!    Such is Taylor. 

 

What can I say?  I'm a pub quiz-obsessed Geek who has an unnaturally strong affection for Star Wars, Marvel, cosplay, and just about any other nerdy thing you can think of (minus anime - I have SOME standards).  Things I hate?  How about Quentin Tarantino films, France (I'm AMerican, so I have to), the whole state of Michigan, and the show Ancient Aliens, just to name a few.  Born in the Promised Land (aka Ohio), lived in Los Angeles (aka Shit Hole), Los Alamos (aka Leave it to Beaver-ville), and now Davis, CA.  You can generally find me at the movies or at your nearest Comic Book convention - I'll be the one dressed up, so you should totally be able to spot me.

I used to be a die hard GWD player before taking on the mantle of quizinatrix - but I yelled at my teammates too much and decided I should try a new path to getting my quiz-fix before I lost any friends.  Lucky for me, the QM spot opened up at El Farol and I may or may not have traded sexual favors with several GWD employees to be given the job (if there are no photos, it never happened).  You all have been putting up with me ever since.

So since you've been on this page, I'll expect to see you at my Pub Quizes!  Oh, and bring your safety word - you're gonna need it.

Geeks Who Drink Presents: Bible Trivia with Elder Jason
Turducken Cupcake

I secretly (or probably not-so-secretly) love Bible questions at quiz.  Mainly because we're at a bar, and I'm challenging you on stuff you probably only remember from Sunday School, if you were so lucky to have been dragged there by your parents.  It is quite the dichotomy. Let's hit up some quiz recap stuff, bullet point style: It's Dangerous to Go Alone!, our first-ever Nintendo themed quiz, is coming on August 20.  I'll be there, and so should you! If you haven't seen Mystery Men, you're dead to me until you have. YES I KNOW THAT DIE HARD 3 IS TECHNICALLY CALLED DIE HARD: WITH A VENGEANCE, I WAS THE ONE WHO MADE

A Link to My Past: In Which I Talk About Games
Professor D

A Link to My Past   Some of you may have noticed that I changed things up with my intro tunes this week. Of course, I played "9 to 5" by Dolly Parton like I always do, but before that I played a couple of recordings by the Austin based Descendants of Erdrick.   This is due, in part, to my excitement about the upcoming Nintendo theme quiz happening at my own venue, your very own Abel’s North. This is also because I saw Descendants of Erdrick perform at Classic Game Fest over the weekend, and there was

Where are the "Shame"-chanters when you need them?
Miles

I say basically the same set of rules every quiz. I'm unnecessarily long-winded about it, but I like the repetition and ritual of going through the whole shebang each time. One of the things I generally say somewhere in there is, “I'm not telling you this to make you feel bad about yourselves; that's what the quiz is for.” The very laws of dramatic irony dictate that this statement would have to bite me on the ass eventually. And this was the quiz where it happened. This was the quiz that made me feel bad about myself. I'm always trying to walk a fair line between generosity and strictness as far as correcting the quiz goes. Usually I'm able to find a pretty

You can see him many weekends playing in Fullerton's beloved Improv Shmimprov comedy group.

Periodically, you can catch his work as a long time member of Rogue Artists Ensemble, bringing you masks, and puppets, and god-only-knows what else.

He's also currently the merch guy for the groundbreaking art-rock outfit known as The Residents.

He does parties, bar mitzvahs, weddings and what-have-you. Just don't ask what he does at them.

It's a Negroni, Ya Jabroni
Matt

Hello, Broomfield brethren! Tonight, we blew the dust off our Bibles, correlated some cocktail creations, and zoomed through a round all about that zany latter letter. Zoinks, indeed! The top three spots were separated by ONE. POINT. EACH. That should tell you what kind of fierce game play we were working with. Teams rose, teams fell, teams endlessly modified their names in annoyingly accurate fashion (looking’ at you, We Missed Round One). Most of you seemed to have left your Biblical scholar friend at home, since only three teams were able to put up more than five points in Round 3, including our eventual first place winners, 3,720 to 1 who

Racist Cookie
JolieKeitel

Hello Hello Dear reader! We had a rip roaring good time at the 'ol Stadium Inn last night. We learned a lot, per the usual.   But one of the biggest lessons we learned is that the Samoas Girl scout cookie is APPARENTLY racist.  So THATS why some people prefer to call them Caramel DeLites.  However I wasn't sure that Samoa was a racist term.  I suppose it all depends on the tone of how one refers to the cookie... like a HARD S is def NOT ok... but is Samoa really a racist term.   Hear me out. If the cookie was called German, or French, or Hawaiian... would we consider that racist?  I'm really

Two Erins Is Even A Bit Much For BATMAN!
Biggs

Twas a BIG night here at the Platypus Pub. Bartender Shilo was out sick from “working out,” it was Ryan’s last night of quizzing before he moves to Long Beach to teach Snoop Dogg and I managed to geek with a fractured rib! Yeah kids, softballs are kinda soft but the Earth is one hard SOB. Either way, Glen was in entertainment mode upon my arrival, Shawna was all about getting people served and the good thing about fracturing a rib kids is they give you drugs. YIPPY! For dinner I went big with a Platypus Burger and added bacon and tots cause I why the hell not. Adult beverages consumed consisted of a Cascade Lake’s Paulin Pilsner and then a handful of Anderson Valley’s

Can't All Batmen Get Along?
RESII

Tom Brady's Sweet Sweet Tears were tears of joy as they won first prize. Friends of Larry took second, W&S third, Butte Buddies fourth, and seven other teams also played.   Christian Bale interrupted all types of superheroes in last night round seven, including another actor’s Batman movie (how petty, Mr. Bale). The film in question [eight] was 1989’s Batman. And while its brilliance has not diminished with age, I believe the perception of it has.   Batman was a humungous hit in 1989. I think it set the new standard of superhero movie:

I love how you just never know what bit of arcane knowledge will come in handy some day. That's why we all love Geeks Who Drink right? That feeling of "Oh! Oh! I know this! I read it in a magazine in 1992!" That kind of thing came into play tonight. More later.  The Visual Round tonight was about cocktail recipes. I probably could have switched it out with some of the Willie's original concoctions and y'all would have done just as well. The Wet Willie, the Kat-astrophe, and my favorite the Cherry Popper. You regulars should be familiar with all those by now. Looking at the round one team wondered WTF: Where's The Fireball? That my be two easy. Everyone knows

Team Rocket is Blasting Off

If I had to sum up last night’s quiz in a few words, I think I could with the following: Cocktails. Bible knowledge. The letter Z. And a dash of incest. It was a riot, right from the get-go, and as always a treat to quiz with you all. On a serious note though, they can’t leave without a proper shout-out: Last night we saw the people of Team Rocket grace us with their presence one final time before they head off to the Midwest for … I’m not sure. Corn? Better jobs? Probably the latter. And to

A Tale of Two Cities (one is better, but the other one's not bad either)
Ivan the Adequate

It wasn’t until just very recently that I abandoned the notion of city rivalries being something to get worked up and excited over. Once upon a time I saw Portland and/or San Francisco as being rivals to my beloved Seattle, but now, in retrospect, it seems a bit silly.   Portland, for instance, doesn’t really compete with Seattle in virtually any way outside of two damn soccer teams in what I eventually decided was far too amateurish of a soccer league to get wrapped up in. I used to go to Sounders matches frequently enough and was in full internet trash talk mode one year when I went to a playoff match against the Timbers. Thinking I was about to see two of

One of my regulars informed me of the above fact at quiz tonight, and it blew my mind. As you're likely aware by now we had a quiz tonight! This time The Evil League of Evil took home the top prize, followed by The Pedestrian League of Evil Underpants. We don't need to talk about those guys anymore, let's talk about the quiz! Round one had us tackling the hardest letter in the alphabet, Z! It's the last letter, which means it has to be the hardest. Teams overcame this monumental task, and actually did pretty well.  Round two was our first audio round of the night, and tasked teams with naming the song and artist that involved

Imbibe or Bible: Close But No Cigar Edition
Magical Michael

  Great to see so many familiar faces at last night's quiz. Definitely a familial vibe flowed throughout the evening. It was also pretty great to see some of the non-fams. Every time a drunk teacher curses in the face of a child, an angel gets its wings, I kept thinking as the drunk teachers in the bar continually dropped F-bomb after fucking F-bomb in front of the family who might have set a record for the fastest meal. Good show.   Congratulations to last night's winners, Schrodinger's Kittens. The feline foursome was on the hunt and they pounced on all prey that fell in their path.

Deja Tu...esday

Last week the quizzing pizza and beers crowd were treated to a week off from the Tuesday night domination of a certain team that I'm hesitant to name. Because what would it matter, they go with a different name every week. No rhyme, no reason, no consistency. Other than the consistent winning of course. Though it's not like their blowing the doors off the competition, but winning by one point, or by twenty....it's first place either way. Down the way off Evergreen the sight of familiar quiz contestants making their way out of the heat to see if they can get some relief with a beer and a slice, and see if their grey matter was over heated, see if they could sweat out a vicory.

God Damn Bible Thumpers

Holy shit! What a turnout and competition we had tonight!Quizzers tonight, overall, did better on Round 3: knowing your Bible books, than they did on Round 5: knowing your drinks and liquors. Not only that, but you had well over an hour to discern your imbibing contents, compared to just 2.5 minutes to name some book chapters. This is Geeks Who Drink! Not Geeks who repent! I am disappoint. But, I know you'll make it up to me after my next week's Tuesday hiatus of watching some forsaken Book of Mormon play. Otherwise, my congrats are shouted out to Sister Wives, who rose from the ranks of mediocrity to destroy all other teams with a 14-point, jokered, Round 8. Somehow they staved
