Of COURSE Carlton won Dancing with the Stars. AS WELL HE SHOULD HAVE.
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!Great night tonight! Stephanie was out tonight for her nephew's birthday, so QM Gerald stepped in to scorekeep. And as you may have noticed from his Giant Dark Spot on Uranus joke, he is a Pretty Fun Guy.We started the quiz with Round 1, Q is for Quizmaster, in which every answer started with the letter Q. Harley, Brady, and Pat all have the last name Quinn. Stephen Fry just left QI. Apparently I have no idea how to pronounce "Quixotic."In tonight's music round we heard songs and artists whose names sound like games. I'm sure Huey Lewis would be a liiiitle upset that you confused him with Chubby Checker, but at least you all recognized

QM'd in Houston for a bit, relocated to Austin, and have been PARTYING LIKE CRAZY here in ATX for almost two years. And by partying, I mean quizmastering. Because I'm way too lame to actually party.


But seriously I'm an awesome Quizmaster.

A is for Angela Merkel because she’s badass. B is for Bunny Ranch Brothel. ‘Nuff said. C is for Cloud Gate. Because no one calls it that. It’s The Bean. I’m from Chicago, I know these things. No one calls it Cloud Gate. Oh, and C is also for Chicago. D is for Dominoes. They are a game. Just like Clapton is not. E is for EPCOT. When saying that Walt Disney World was an acceptable answer, I was met with minor dismay. Just as well. No one put that down for an answer anyway. I not sure why I even mentioned it. Must have been channeling Buckminster Fuller. F is for Fixed-gear. Standard fixed-gear. One. G is for G. Specifically

On a sweltering day in the final months of the Reagan administration, a human baby was discovered by a leopard in the middle of a cornfield somewhere outside Chicago. This baby grew up into a gangly assemblage of brain waves, taught itself to read questions into a microphone and type on a keyboard, and found a job.

 

By day, I go to class and do homework, by night I make subs and quiz people with random questions. I'm a real superhero. Oh yeah, and I absolutely adore all aspects of alliteration. Too bad that never really comes up in the quizzes. Maybe I'll go suggest a round...

 

Drink responsibly and keep your minds open, y'all.

Birthday Quiz Vol. 27
DJ ROB ROB

Another super week at The Ute and Yeti! It was special for several reasons: 1. It was my birthday quiz. The official day was technically yesterday, but it was certainly close enough to warrant a giant fun time with lots of cool prizes given away to a bunch of teams. Dart guns, bubble guns, Star Wars themed bubbles, Hot Wheels...basically anything you can get at a dollar store. Not that I'm cheap. They're just fun. 2. It was another MASSIVE week with 19 teams packing the house. I'm so stoked that people are having fun at quiz every week enough to come back more and more. I try to make it the most fun and I like to see these

One Crossbow and 40 Quibbles, Please
Geoff (like Chaucer)

What a night!  After last week's craziness, I was happy to settle down a little bit and just do a quiz instead of herding cats.  And I got my wish.Nine teams came to Darwin's Theory tonight intent on winning it all.  Our questions tested their knowledge on words that start with Q, televangelists, vacuum cleaners, and bad plans.  We also tested out a new round format where you could write two answers for a chance at one point or one correct answer for two points.  That one was interesting.  We also quarrelled and quibbled over the proper name for landmarks across the world.Tonight's winner was Ebony and Ivories with a solid

GEEKS.  I enjoy role-playing games, listening to music, and video games.  Reddit is my bread and butter.  I know a lot about a lot of things.

WHO.  Military veteran, computer expert.  Young at heart, sarcastic to a fault, and funny.  I hope.

DRINK.  I don't drink often, but when I do, it's usually a beer.  I drink shots on special occasions only.  I am known to sing karaoke at times.

Butter: A Fan Fiction
Nicole

Thursday’s quiz was well attended, despite impending snow. Regulars the Irish Greaseballs, Wildcats - rawwr! and 3-4s were joined by new-ish-comers the 4 Amigos. The 3-4s lived up to their name by playing only 3/4 of the rounds, taking 4th place. Wildcats - rawwr! took 1st in points, but were DQd from official first place due to too many brains! So the 4 Amigos got 1st place prize, and the Irish Greaseballs finally placed after weeks of juuuust not quite.   I told y’all at the beginning of the night that I was really

The Discreet Charm of Petite Abille
Vaughn

Wednesday marked a couple of firsts for me, it was my first night subbing and my first night hosting at Petite Abille and let me tell you I enjoyed the entire evening.  It was a rainy/snowy night in the city so the crowd was a smaller than normal. It was also a bit less rowdy than my normal venue but there was no obvious difference in energy.  I still get goosebumps when I see people’s eyes light-up after I announce that we’re doing pub quiz and I hope that feeling never goes away.  Before I get too far into this I want to thank Regine Mont-Louis for letting me sit in for her and let her know that everyone missed her and they want her back ASAP.  Favorite

As the immortal June Carter Cash said, it’s good to be back in Folsom. Err, Goldspot. Denver. Whatever, it’s just good to be back! When Shane tapped me to return as a sub at Regis’s favorite quiz, I jumped at the chance. Well, stumbled. Brought a growler.

Here's the 411 on Mr. H:

He's 29. He's surprisingly engaged. He's an art teacher-turned-instructional coach at a local high school. A really good one.

When not belching into a microphone, John can be found:

  • Sipping brews at the Dark Lord's favorite brewery.
  • Playing competitive air guitar.
  • Flopping Magic cards with the other dorks.
  • Bulleting lists...with extreme prejudice.

Quizzing Point
Thomas

What a night! What a pub quiz! What a day since then... A very calm start belied the flurry of activity to come, but who could have known that when it was just Matt and me sitting around at five until seven. Thankfully, the fine folks of Scottsville are nothing if not punctual, and by Seven on the dot the stools were full and we were ready to roll. This week's was a trickier quiz than most, testing our collective love for the Food Network and those damned current events. Who has time to read a newspaper, anyway!? Those two rounds were, however, broken up by a more familiar round two than usual, though no less annoying. I forgot how much Sugar Ray loved their crappy

The time my dog ate my computer power cord
Dusty

My dog, Miley Cyrus, is a monster.  I woke up today to find my backpack had been rummaged through.  I know I didn't do anything but open it, so I had a couple suspects.  I coulnd't figure it out until I went to write my blog and found my cord chewed in half. I'm lucky my partner is so flipping handy, because otherwise I'd be out 65.00 for a new cord.Tonight, there was an awesome smutty fan fiction round.  I used my best books on tape voice. I hope y'all noticed. The Spiders from Mars had first place right up until Bitches on a Budget swung in on the last round and took it from them.  The "Bitches" part

I Wanna Be At The Quiz Where It Happens
Rev. Lindsay

Show of hands: who thought round four was the best thing that ever happened?Yeah, us too.  Lindsay2 doesn’t often ask to read a round but we HAD to switch hit that.  And hit that we did.  Hopefully no one got pregnant last night, unless they wanted to.  And you’re welcome.  I practiced that sultry voice allllll day. I also totally loved the round three business and the gimmes with all the Paula Deen recipes missing butter. Did you know that during quiz, there was a manhunt happening on the other side of 35?  The smokers can attest to this tweet being true.  We

Lindsay enjoys writing bios for other people much more than for herself, and she really hates people (herself included) who speak in the third person. 

Buy her a shot of fireball to avert the pain of this bio writing.

Go play her quiz at Silo on 7th on Tuesdays at 8PM and at Nomad Bar on Thursdays at 8PM.

I'll Show You Where To Put Your Thumbs!
Weazel

Seriously, though, thumbs up is the worst hand signal one can give when someone is trying to figure out if the sound is loud enough.  You are literally saying AT THE SAME TIME both "sounds great" and "turn it up".  It's the WORST! ALSO!  I forgot to announce that quiz tonight was our anniversary!  I'm a horrible spouse/quizmaster, I know.  But, yes, it is our one year anniversary of quiz awesomeness here at CosmoNoms.  HUZZAH!

We come from the land of the ice and snow,
From the midnight sun where the hot springs flow.
The hammer of the gods will drive our ships to new lands,
To fight the horde, singing and crying: Valhalla, I am coming!

On we sweep with threshing oar, Our only goal will be the western shore.

It’s so refreshing to have questions about the Axis of Evil that don’t involve Iran (especially in a quiz that had three questions involving Iran).
shadude (the long winded Persian)

SPOILER ALERT: I’m Iranian. Now I’m used to be the butt of many jokes during quiz (well, more precisely, my home country). There is still my fave question about how the Farsi word for “snow” is “barf” (even though it’s not pronounced the same as the word for “vomit”). But it is nice when the questions involving Iran are making fun of someone else. Imagine my surprise when I saw the premiere of “The People vs OJ Simpson” only to see former-Friend, David Schwimmer, play Iranian icon and OJ BFF, Robert Kardashian. (Yeah, that’s right people, Kim Kardashian is Iranian. And you thought out nuclear program

a music geek - used to be a DJ at my college radio station

a concert geek - live music rocks! (pun intended)

a live theatre geek - it's just a better value than the going to the cinema at this point

a musical theatre geek -more than an straight man rightfully should be

a political geek - it's a much better bloodsport than the MMA

a pop culture geek - grew up as a latch-key child, so TV was my babysitter

I Need A Shower Now
Hunter

Fan fiction, slash fiction, shipping... whatever you want to call it, it's awkward to read it aloud on a mic. I almost felt like I was back at a job I had *years* ago: audio book editor. Yeah, for a short time, I was an editor at a voice-over studio in Hollywood. I was hoping at one point to get on the other side of the mic and do voice-overs for a living. Hell, I still think that would be fun to do. But sometimes that text you'd have to read is just... painfully awkward.That's how we all felt about Round 4 tonight. For me, the question about Saved By The Bell was *very* awkward. Why? I was a closed-captions editor after I was an audio book editor. Our offices at that

This was one of those quizzes that makes Geeks Who Drink like no other trivia company in America, if not the world. Everyone else just asks a bunch of questions with barely any rhyme or reason…..they put very little thought into writing their questions, let alone an entire quiz. Crafting a quiz is something we at Geeks Who Drink take very seriously. That’s why we have a staff of about 50 writers and graphic artists and audio/video editors….all led by a six-time “Jeopardy!” super-champ, Christopher Short. Besides having a keen and sharp mind, Christopher is quite cultured and clever as well. Christopher is always trying to challenge the writers

Hot Buttered Racism
Stephanie "Poolside" Stone-Robb

Thanks for letting me fill in for Dave, who was off making art and rehearsing a play he's directing.  What a talented bastard. We started round one testing your ability to remember the last 7 days.  Round 2, we heard a whole fuck town of Uncle Kracker.  Too much of it.  Also, Dobie Gillis is different than Dobie Grey.  WAY different.  Word to the wise, when there is a question about Paula Deen, the answer is always either butter or racism.  Or both.   Round 4.  God damn, I don't know how fun it was for you as a quizzer, but it was the most fun for me as your host.  Gross, but fun.  Also, I think I had that
