I Did It, Guys!
Quizmistress SJ

And I don’t mean in a sexual ways, you sickos. I got the great privilege of covering Piper Down last night while Nick was out exploring Boston for his birthday. Everything went mostly according to plan! Woot. Just a little bit of sound adjusting here and there because my high lady voice ends up cutting across the crowd quite a bit more than Nick, the soft-spoken man that he is. We got it on point, though. We had fun with quotes from rappers or religious pundits, female actors getting their own, and, my favorite, an audio round on voice actors and their characters. That round 7 included clips from Linda Belcher, Babe singing christmas tunes, and Pinky and The Brain.   Another

Two years into this biz, and I am loving being Quizmistress at Lumpy's Downtown on Thursdays. Other than trying to fry brains during pub quiz I spend my life snowboarding and frying my own brain studying science at the U. Not too shabby, eh? After moving around to a bunch of different places after high school and college (Portland, Cuba, Chile, NYC, SLC, DC) I'm back in these big beautiful mountains (I'm from here originally)!

Come hang out with me at Lumpy's Downtown  for more exciting tidbits on the life of Sarah 'Jo' Newhall. That's right, 'Jo'. Not my real middle name, but it is a nickname that makes me turn my head when called. I promise not to laugh too hard when you say Africa is a country or something equally as outrageous.

Things are hard, things are soft, ARRGH I can’t tell!
Nami Nami Nami Pants

Like the title implies, tonight was either silly hard, or silly easy. Oh vey, what’s a girl to do? Well regardless, tonight was a close competition because of the fact. As always, the first round starts off smartly enough to give teams a false sense of security. Because good lord, the next rounds were terribly not kind. Round two was full of things that practically no one under the age of 17 could know, except for like 1 or 2 songs. Round 3 was so offensive, it really was a crap shoot. Honestly, the first scoring break barely had a 3 point differential.   Here’s the thing. Can we talk about how offensive Round 3 was? Technically it’s usually our easiest

Question: When introducing young persons to Star Wars, and they've never seen any of them before, which order do you show them in?  If you've never seen Star Wars, please close your web browser now, and never come to my Quiz every again.It's a tough question, and since the Mrs. (LesBot 317537) and I have never spawned, and never plan to do so, we need to seek outside guidance on answering it.I guess you could show them in Chronological Order?  Unfortunately, though, that means you have to watch those movies again.  Let's all pretend that most of them never happened.  Unless you just splice

You Will Not Find Miss Piggy on J Date...
"Other" Eric

     I had to think about it. I may have totally misinformed you tonight when I stated Miss Piggy was on J Date. I have researched the website, and it looks to be 100% Kosher. So while it is questionable if the man who voiced her is Jewish or not, Miss Piggy is not allowed on J Date. Keep your eyes peeled on Tinder...      Quiz kicked off with a round on dropping letters, not bombs. It was a great round of celebrity names that if you dropped a single letter, you got the answer to our question. The audio round had "Never" all throughout. People were very surprised by Alice Cooper! The 50/50 round had quotes from either rappers or religious pundits,

Bombs Away
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

Good evening you wonderful quizzers! I really do look forward to closing out the weekend at PBS. The cocktails are splendid, the staff is superb, and you all are a good looking and clever bunch. Truly a rare combination in the geekdom. Usually it is a one or the other. Normally the other. Tonight we dropped letters in round one to get fun answers like Lance Ass and ill.i.am. Not so fun, in round three we learned rappers and religious leaders can both say some pretty whack things. Who knew 50 Cent and Fred Phelps were so alike? Also, social media is full of face palming faux pas. Round four we covered some embarrassing moments for Naomi Campbell, Madonna, and even PornHub. Not sure

Hello. Hope you are doing well. My name is Andrea. I became a Quiz Master straight out of college. My proud parents would like to be the first to tell you, this is the longest I have ever held a job.

I enjoy TV crime dramas, early bed times, mountain views, wandering the West, and hanging with my dog Joe. My day job is in mental health. I am afraid of aliens. I think human/ alien relations will not work well for either party. I have a degree in Cultural Anthropology. I hope enjoy my quiz.

See you on Sunday,

Okay, DMX.  Sit down and let me tell you where the name Google comes from.  You see, it's the deliberate misspelling of the word "googol," which is a real-ass word meaning the number that is represented by 1 with a hundred zeroes after it.   It's great to learn!   What else did we learn on quiz?  Well, Alice Cooper never cries.  PornHub and DiGiorno have terrible advertising people.  And YOU need to watch more Chinese films.  Fan Bingbing is a national treasure!   Also, the Get Along Gang was most famously a cartoon, but they originated as a series of characters invented for greeting

51st Dates!!
Sally

YES! NO WRONG ANSWER WILL EVER TOP THIS WRONG ANSWER!    51st dates. Fifty first dates. 50 first dates. So damn brilliantly wrong. I wish all wrong answers were this wrong answer. It's close enough to know what you meant but wrong enough for me to not be sure that you truly meant the right answer. OBVIOUSLY this is the sequel to 50 First Dates. 51st dates!!! The look of glee when I read out that answer and then the look of absolute HORROR when one team mate realized he misheard his other team mate. I wish I had that photo, instead I have a photo of them with incredible emotions of self pity.    Crack is Whack

Flightplan
Ian Kaplan

My life is so much like this film Flightplan it's crazy. It seems like every time I fly this shit keeps happening to me. Literally, like every damn time. One time, I was in the Jodie Foster role - where is my daughter do you have my daughter they took my daughter. That was terrifying! But like three times I was Peter Skasgard Sarsgaard and I was the bad guy all along. It was fun tricking everybody! Usually, though, I'm the little girl. I am so scared of everything so I take a bunch of Ativans and fall asleep down there in Avionics. I like those flights the best. Hey, speaking of flights, have you guys tried the Margarita Flights at O'Niell's? They are awesome. Anyway,

a Happy Sunday!
Who the hell moved my vagina?

I don’t know about you, but I have spent my Sunday hanging out with my bestest friend, checking out amazing lego displays, eating unlimited Korean bbq for lunch, and getting dog snuggles.  It might not get better than that- and I am a-ok with this level of better. Last night was pretty wonderful too- lots of new faces at the pub quiz, new friends and old to while away the hours with, and the knowledge that “Foreskin Gump” exists out there in the wide world. And while I’d love to keep reminiscing about the lovely times that have passed by us, instead, I am going to go have some more lovely times with those around me out in the big wide world. And

I like going places and doing things.  My top five movies of all time are: Clue, The Last Unicorn, Ghostbusters, Labyrinth and Babe: The Gallant Pig.

I read a lot. I drink beer. I hate children.  I work in an elementary school by day so this is something of a conflict.

I was the prom queen at my high school.  We only had about 30-something seniors in my graduating class, but it still counts bitches.  It still counts.

Singing way off key in a full bierhaus.

What’s up Blogosphere! Krazy Karl’s Pizza lived up to its name tonight. We had a packed house with 17 teams and 6 of them were Rumble Teams! This is the final week of the Rumble and teams are going all out to get qualified for the regional event next week. Our first highlight (and sometimes lowlight) of the evening came courtesy of Syarhcaz Anigav who sang along with nearly every song on my playlist. Sadly, not everyone can sing the high parts in The Darkness’ “I Believe in a Thing Called Love”. Regardless it really made the night more entertaining. Thanks gang! It was nice to see some high scores on our audio round this evening.

Linda quizzed for a while, but her brand of oddly specific knowledge (Rockies baseball, insipid romantic comedies, and all things snark) was less conducive to quizzing and more conducive to quizmaster-ing.

Now here she is. And here you are. We're all here together. How delightful.

The Opposite of Bob Dylan
TanookiSuitandTie

Wowza! Another packed house tonight! I probably have UNM being back in biz to thank for this. While I've become accustomed to the dim, somber quiz nights of yore, tonight threw me for a loop as the place was, as the kids say these days: bumpin'. Nine teams, almost fills the entire main room. If this quiz night gets much busier, we're gonna have to have people sitting on pool tables in the next room over. I also tried a new setup tonight, moving my table forward from the corner of the room (I felt a little like a dejected child beforehand) and placing the speaker behind me, where others couldn't potentially trip over the tripod legs. Rather fond of the new arrangement, I just need to resolve

  Tonight’s quiz was presented in ancient Scandinavian. Hurdy gurdy…hurdy gurd. We had a whole round on Scandinavian countries, and the only result is that we know that we know nothing of Scandinavian countries.
