It's Like I Never Left.
Stephanie "Poolside" Stone-Robb

Quite a turn out for our holiday Monday.  The rain parted just long enough to fill up the patio as well.  We had a lot of first time quizzers who played in some pretty big groups.  Look.  You're popular.  I get it.  But you know what else makes you popular?  Winning prizes.  Cut those apron strings! Shun your friends for the glory of a movie ticket.  You'll thank me later. We got real selfish with round one, and were then proud to be Americans in round two.  Also, Britney Spears thinks Japan is in Africa.  Just let that sink in. That music math round.  Look, you either know it or you dont.  Thankfully, it was

Hey Everybody...It's Pat.  No, not the sexually ambiguous character from that SNL sketch (I wish), but the man with the lower body of a child bearing woman, except my vagina's an outey. So, I guess sort of ambiguous, but I promise I'm super cool.  I'm a 26 year old high school English teacher in training.  Turns out I love the sound of my own voice so much that I thought I ought to get this job talking in front of strangers on top of teaching their kids.  I am a former full time stand up comedian/imporviser, doing that as much as I possibly still can, so forgive me in advance for constantly trying material on you without you knowing. I don't know what else to say about myself...I like dogs, the Dodgers, and American Lit; so if you're up on any of those then let me know cuz we'll be friends.  If you wanna know anything else just ask, I'm approachable, I swear...I don't bite...too often (only 5 times in my life, which is only like 1 person every 5.2 years).  So there!

I preferred the Silver Age Jesus.
Miles

The world was topsy-turvy at this last quiz. In a good way, I think. It's important to shake things up every once in a while. The first shake-up came when there were zero emergencies before quiz. I didn't have to run and grab a last-minute cable or answer sheets or solve any problems. Which meant I got to eat some of the Mud Hen's delicious food before quiz! Now this might not seem like a big deal to you. Well, you're wrong. It is a big deal. I haven't had a regular quizzing venue that had a menu in years. (Though Complex had some lovely people with a panini press, some mean ingredients,

Miles got a college degree in acting, and look at him now! He's deftly avoided the pitfalls of riches and fame, and is still keepin' it real. So very real.

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.

You can have Vegas.
Major Tom

Your fearless leader, Mitch is taking a well-deserved vacation in Las Vegas this week, so I was called upon to sub for him.  I'm always happy to do that, since I get his money.  Of course, being a teacher, and having my vacation plans blow up in my face, I have pretty much all summer to sub for people.  Maybe we'll see each other again at Eclipse soon.  Now, Vegas and I, on the other hand, will not be seeing each other any time soon.  Mitch can have that city.  Vegas has been nasty to me over the years, and I haven't been back since 2010.  The last time I was there, I lost money on blackjack.  I lost money on craps.  I lost money on sports.

My name is Tom.  I got into this gig by kicking everyone's ass at the Quiz at Club Congress on a weekly basis until they pretty much had to give me a job.  Now I do 2 clubs in Tucson, and you should be at both of them.  Besides doing this, I play in a ska-punk band called Troy's Bucket, and I have a job teaching 7th grade social studies.  I'm a huge metal and punk fan, but I also dig a lot of other stuff.  Halloween is my Christmas.  A lot of that has to do with my birthday, December 24th, being totally ignored thanks to Christmas.  I left the sinking ship that is Detroit, but I still love the Red Wings.  That's a hockey team.  Hockey is the greatest sport in the world.  I am single, so feel free to line up at the QM's table to meet me.  I drink Guinness, so feel free to send one my way.  I still won't give you any extra points.

Dogs are really the only thing that matter
The Honorable Judge Amy

DID YOU SEE ALL THOSE DOGS? I mean, I know there was a quiz. Sure. Whatever. But what really matters are the dogs. There were 5 of them. All in a row. Each dog attached to a different picnic table out front, sitting with their owners. The first was a scruffly little puppy. Imagine my surprise when this puppy was sitting at a table with one of our financial analysts. I think he was on a date! I crashed it to pet the dog. The next dog was a beautiful tan pitty named Kiera. I love her. I took pictures of her smushy face and posted them on my Instagram. Her owners were the nicest and bought me a drink. Then came the table with

See what the critics have to say about Amy:

"Wait a minute. Wait a minute, believe me. That's a tough quizmaster. She was born in a pool of gasoline on a piece of rusty scrap metal. I've seen that quizmaster jump through barbed wire into a vat of hot tar. That quizmaster? Is indestructible."- Special Agent Jack Bauer

"Polite as fuck" - Homeless stranger

See what Amy has to say about Amy:

I am a native Portlander. I am pro sandwich, whisky, beer, dogs, Oregon, and dancing all the time. I am anti mayonaise. When at a loss for what to say I spout out random facts. I have seen the two most famous wizards of our time (Harry Potter and Gandalf) naked, on separate occasions. I have just met you, and I love you.

Neville, You've Been Holding Out on Us
Taylor

I think we may have glossed over this last night, but did you all take the time to look up the Matthew Lewis pictures I happened to mention in passing during the quiz?  No?  WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?  This is serious stuff, people.  Well, don't look it up if you're reading this at work.  That wouldn't be advisable.  Suffice it to say that the actor who played Neville Longbottom grew up and has a very impressive...Elder Wand.  Yeah.  I'm going with that pun.  Having had to listen to all the creepy guys talk about how "hot Hermione will be when she grows up" when the movies were out, I think we're entitled to voice our appreciation of the completely-legal

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.

Bye Bye Brenna!
Lisa Pizza

I'm extremely upset. In the 18 months I've been hosting at Hawthorne Hideaway, I've met some chill people.  One of the chillest is Brenna.  I mean, I forgive her for replacing Cute Ben because she rules so hard. Like, actually rules. Now, I wasn't originally going to do an ode to Brenna, but I want to embarrass her and also, I'm sad. Brenna worked with me at Ground Kontrol and made me dope burgers and sammies at Hideaway. We've gotten pretty drunk together and she's also the reason I have soft face skin (DAT CLARISONIC DOE). Maybe we've held each other and cried and pep talked each other.

What A Good Night..and then Came K-Man!!
Wavie

A very lighthearted and fun night was abound this Tuesday at Beggars with four teams battling it out for trivia supremacy. Hilarity and creativity were on hand for the teams who were felt wily with their names—19 Pink Slips and Counting and The Olsen Septuplets were a few that grabbed my attention. Coincidentally, those two happened to be recurring weekly participants who did their own damage during the bonus questions as well as the game in itself. Towards the end, we were delighted to have the heckling stylings by K-Man. He felt his presence was necessary till the game was over. Let’s
