PUPPY
Linda

Puppy puppy puppy puppy puppy puppy puppy puppy puppy puppy puppy puppy puppy puppy puppy puppy puppy puppy puppy puppy puppy puppy puppy. Puppy. Okay, that doesn't look like a word anymore. Do you know what the great thing about puppies is? Even if I'm having a terrible day and all the world is against me and managering has been the most manager-like management ever, it can all be compartmentalized and shoved in a little box somewhere else just because a puppy likes me. Also, I really wanted to move into the house we live in now because there were two husky puppies that lived next door that have since moved and now life has no meaning. Quick story:

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.

Tedd Talks
Your Friendly Neighborhood Quizmaster

You would think that it's really easy to just sit back and watch some noob execute a few rounds of quiz and you would be totally right.  At least in the scenario we saw at Tony's when Tedd copiloted our quiz.  It isn't always easy to sit back and watch someone training to become a quizmaster but Tedd made it much easier on me than a normal noob.  Thanks for giving him the warm Tony's welcome we have all come to know and love.   Hey the Dicks are back!  And it was obvious they had taken time off to practice their penis illustrations.  Some of those were downright scary.  We all learned

Saying Yes No More... For Now
Winja

    What a busy week.  I hosted 2 special events last week for Geeks Who Drink and boy is my liver tired.  Kidding, little drinking was involved.  I hosted a private event for a local prestigious school that involved me running quiz in an auditorium like a I was a professor giving an important lecture.  Yes, I did act self important and demoralizing as any graduate professor should, so it went well.  I also co-hosted the Harry Potter theme quiz last weekend for hordes of Hogwartians, and much to my surprise, it was very calm and organized.  I pulled my costume together from Thrift Store gold and curated a fantastic playlist

     That there is the St. Sixtus Abbey in Westvleteren, Belgium, makers of some of the best beer in the world - so yeah, they deserve a leap.

If you’re going to name your team Teddy 1 Leg, you better expect to hop up to hand in your quiz sheet. News-influenced team names were the style du jour last night such as Teddy B. Deady, too soon guys. However, Teddy Bridge Over Trouble Water was a clever and less brutal riff. The team name that got the most laughs? Gene Wilder Did What To His Knee? If you don’t know the backstory, look it up, it’s really sweet.    The night ended with a newsworthy sudden death round pitting Brooke from Lil’ Sebastian against Emily from GWDWTHK.    The

After many crazy, yet humbling years of pub quiz play, it became obvious there was only one way I was going to know all the answers. No…I’m not talking about cheating. Cheaters never win. Oh, except for Lance Armstrong, A-Rod and chad-powered presidential candidates. 

But honest lil’ me? I chose the high road to the palace of geek wisdom. So here I am.

You guys/gals are just the cutest quizzers a girl could ask for! I'm so glad you enjoyed the night and I'm happy to be your quizmistress. This was an exciting night with some hilarious team names. Almost every team did fairly well and were enthusiastic participants. Also, with the exclusion of one team who skewed it, LOOK AT THOSE SCORES. They increase by ONE point between teams! I am so impressed. I was hoping more for a tie but I'll settle for how pretty that looks.   Our teams for the night were: Barrel of Fun, Rehab is For Quitters, You Wine Some, You Booze Some, Smart Garfunkel, Token

Tuesday's quiz at Llywelyn's Pub was a raucous one! A Cardinal's baseball game + the beginning of Fall Semester at the local colleges = a large crowd of quizzers and non-quizzers alike. This was probably the noisiest I've heard the place get, and I'm not sure if the quizzers or the spectators were more responsible. Either way, this felt like a legit pub quiz! Important takeaways from the night: Everyone knows Katy Perry, and absolutely no one knows The Captain and Tennille. Hardly anyone has seen Empire Records (which is a damn shame!). And Rihanna apparently tackles some weighty subjects in her music (the pressures of the private loan industry - who knew!?) The same two

The VMAs are the poop that hit the fan of unimportance!
Wolfie

Remember when the VMAs stood for something and was a platform for unplanned (yet sometimes planned), shock value entertainment all while awards were given for videos actually played on MTV? The days of Prince turning around revealing ass-less pants (gay or not, you have to admit he had a nice one, fellas!), C.C. DeVille of Poison so blitzed out of his mind he starts playing another song causing an awkward moment for host Arsenio Hall, or the bassist for Nirvana deciding “Hey, I want to knock myself out with my own bass”, are long gone, perhaps (this is just a few my old mind can recall). Do I know what happened at this year’s VMAs? Nope. I pretty much pay attention to MTV

I have had 3 venues as a quizmaster this past year, with one still being my home of homes (Echo Brewing). I also sub other venues when able and willing. Hoping to have more than one venue I host regularly, cause I LOVE this job!

Random facts and such about me:

- Been told by several people I have met through the years that I have a THICK and NOTICABLE Colorado accent! Yeah, I don't get it either!

- Turned down a gig of driving the band Twopointeight for 2 months on the Flogging Molly tour cause I was waiting to return to a job I was on medical leave from....Yup, I am still kicking myself, cause I didn't go back to that job until about 5 months later. 

- I wish every day that Courtney Cox would get over herself and allow for the Misfits of Science to be released on DVD in the U.S. At least I hear she is part of why it won't be released cause she is embarrassed by it.....I wonder if she has ever seen her show Cougar Town....THAT'S embarrassing!

- Went to a Model & Talent convention and met talent scouts, agents, etc that would make even Simon Cowell cry!!!

- I believe in ghosts cause I have experienced them, even at an adult bookstore I worked at once. 

- Wrote, directed, starred, designed set, did promo work, etc. for a performance art show I did with an amazing cast and crew for a student production in College. It was called "Freak Boy Speaks!"

- I am also an artist! Paintings (Acrylics), drawing, etc. I am also a writer, which kind of shows when I do my blogs. 

- Much rather meet celebs than to get their autographs or pictures with them.

- Worked concert security for a short time in AZ. STILL never got paid for that N'sync concert!!!! 

- Can put myself in the game of 6 six degrees of Kevin Bacon. 

- Finished up my final season as mascot for the 2010 WFTDA Champions, the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls. Will miss being Wolfie the wolf, but will continue watching roller derby!

- Worked on a cruise ship, where I got to meet people from all over the world, and met my wife (she was a fellow crew member, not a passenger cause that is against the rules!).

- Followed the Vans Warped tour for 2 weeks in 2004.....One hell of an adventure.

- Rode on an airplane at 1 a.m. from Phoenix, AZ to Dallas TX with a bunch of Wrestlers from "WWE", back in 2003. Included the Undertaker, Edge, Matt Hardy, Billy "the Ass man" Gunn, Eddie Gurerro, and many more.

- Once worked at the post office on my college campus. Ask me why one WOULD and COULD go mad from working at such a place. 

- I only like bacon or coleslaw when in the mood.

- Once performed with a group from Second City back in College with fellow Improv group members at the school. 

- Worked at Ed Debevic's in AZ. If you don't know, then google it or ask Jeeves (he is still around, isn't he?).

- Much rather be at a coffee shop with a pen or pencil and a journal or drawing pad than a laptop.....which I use as a Quiz Master! We get along......for now. 

-Aside from my mascot alter ego, I have another alter ego when I perform on stage with a band. His name is Elder Grimlee. He was once a logo for AZ band, the Elders UK, but now searches for his own band. But the alter egos don't stop there.....several more exist. 

- I was born 1 month late!!!! Remember, this was back in 1976! So a C-section was not an option. Plus, can you blame a guy.....FREE room and board!!!

- Mystery Science Theater 3000 is one of my ALL time favorite shows and when I am stressed, sad, or bummed, I just put on one of my MST3K DVDs and all is right with the world and no one dies! I also believe that GWD should do a MST3K themed quiz!

- I don't care for Netflix due to some issues with their service. BRING BACK MY BLOCKBUSTER VIDEO!!!!!!

- Find it funny that when I was about 19 years old, I hoped to have a full tattoo body suit by the age of 30. I am 39 and have 8. I am such a slacker.

- My Mom can beat up your Mom, Dad, buddies you street fight with and ALMOST threw down with the late Fabulous Mullah! I am her baby boy, so watch it, unless you mention sympathy for my being born late then you have won her over. 

- Made a collapsible dance cage with my brother for a roller derby girl from the league I mascot(ed) for (she DJed with another DJ and they wanted a dance cage).....still got the pictures! No clue what happened to it, hoping someone is go-go dancing their heart out in it!

Colin Kaepernick, you confuse me. Okay, not really. You do you and we’ll keep quizzing and giving our bonus drinks based on questions about you. P.S. nobody knows how to spell your name … or really thinks you’ll ever be a starting quarterback again for long, but I digress. Not hating, just speaking the truth. We went eight rounds strong, like always, and brought down the house with an awesome mystery round about the X-Men. I wish we had more rounds like that, where you had to put together context clues to figure out an extra answer. Plus, I am always down to talk about the X-Men. Who wouldn’t be?

One of the ‘thrills’ I get from the quiz is reading team names.  I like that teams in Gunnison don’t use the same team name over and over.  The Gong team had some great ones but might have used them all up.  It was a great run.  My favorite from last night was ‘David Hyde’s butthole selfies’.  With a name like that it would be some motivation to get in the top three at least once so everyone could hear your fabulous name.   The new color answer sheets look awesome.  They have some info on them that is fun to read the first time you use one.  Geeks Who Drink can also can change them up and keep them

Quizzing for quizzards
Jesse

Last night Denver Beer Co. hosted a Quiz for the Cause, or more accurately a Quiz for the Kids. Effectively, we quizzed for little quizzards, as we raised money for the Stapleton High School Quiz Team. We raised a nice even $200 to support these little quizzards compete in Pueblo for the semifinals.   The winning team of the evening (Flat Bill) won the awesome trophy pictured in the pictures. I believe the history teacher made it with hot glue, half a globe, a cardboard paper tower center, some child’s toys, and an adult’s lost dreams.

Hail and well met, dudes and duderinas, We're starting to get a little chilly at the Boxcar in the evenings, but we still had four teams pit their mettle against the immovable earth that is The Quiz. I spent a little time before the show talking about this, possibly too much, but seriously, how does Crispin Glover in Back To The Future, like, exist? Nothing he says or does in that movie could be interpreted as normal, or even approaching human interaction. Like, the dude named Biff is the most understated performer in those movies.
