Halloween’s coming up this Friday. What’s everyone dressing up as? I’m planning on dressing up as the wizard from the game Clash of Clans. The wizard runs around throwing fireballs at his opponents, so I figure I’ll make a fireball while also sharing Fireball. Since Halloween is on a Friday this year, you’d think everyone would be excited for the holiday, but it is receiving little to no chatter among my circle of friends. Nobody is talking about costumes or special plans outside of what usually happens on a Friday night. I’d lead the charge, but I’ll be in New York City for the weekend. Hopefully I’ll have good stories to share with you all next week.

At the Geeks Who Drink pub quiz last night, 10 teams assembled for questions on words that rhyme with eek, disses and diseases, famous person before and afters, and much more. And when the quiz was over, two former winners returned to the podium, beating down the opposition to take the top spots. The C U Next Tuesdays finished in first with a final score of 82 points, and behind them were the Wyld Stallyns with 81 points.

Every week we see our share of head-scratching answers and this week was no different. A few of you thought that the song Runaways was performed by Brandon Flowers. Though he did put out a solo album in 2010, this one was indeed a Killers song. A few of you thought the song by Fun. was called Most Nights. That too was wrong as it’s called Some Nights. In fact, the phrase “some nights” is mentioned 11 times in the song while “most nights” is only said twice.

In the before and after round, a few teams put down “Sean Penn and Teller” as an answer. Now let’s look back at the question, “…the taller and louder half of that ‘Bullshit’ magic duo.” Clearly the question is asking for the individual’s name, not the name of his performing act. Oh, and here’s a good one that many of you flubbed. We had a question in the disses round where Ernest Hemingway makes fun of a renowned Mississippi author. Many of you put down Mark Twain, but I’d like to note something here. Mark Twain lived in Missouri, Nevada, California, New York, and Connecticut, as well as a few places overseas, but never in Mississippi. So that too was wrong.

What else? Some of you think that Bono and The Edge sound the same, but I did show some leniency there. And lastly, a few teams thought that Arcade Fire is an English band. Allow me to point out that while Arcade Fire was formed in Montreal, it has its roots in Boston when Win Butler tried to establish himself on the indie music scene here. The Mormon-raised Texan couldn’t cut it in this city so he moved up north where he formed AF, making them most definitely not an English band.

That’s it for this week. Make good choices, have a fun Halloween, and come back next time for another Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz.

Bummed that I missed you guys last week. I was driving down I-95 in Maine when the drain plug in my oil tank fell out, spilling all my oil out of the car and seizing up my engine. It was pretty bad, but at least I got out of the state before an invisible dome could come down and trap me. Oh Maine, you make good beers, and you have a tree-to-human ratio of about 100,000,000 to one, but man some of your towns are still mired in the 1940s and are showing no chance of modernizing any time soon. When the tow truck came to pick me up, I more than half expected to see Red Green hop out with a roll of duct tape and some WD-40. Because as he likes to say, “If it moves when it shouldn’t, use duct tape. And if it doesn’t move when it should, use WD-40.”

This was somewhat relevant because we had a round last night on defunct countries and names. While Maine is not a defunct country, it did go by a different name once. Up until 1820, it was a part of Massachusetts, and if you are in a house built before that year, its owner will tell you that it was built in the Bay State. At that point, you’ll ask how the house was moved from Massachusetts to Maine, and then the owner will point out to you that Maine was once part of Massachusetts before it seceded.

History lesson aside, we had a quiz last night and there were 18 TEAMS! Thanks to each and every one of you guys for coming. The winning team was #Free Pistorious who apparently did not know how to spell the Blade Runner’s last name (there’s only one o). Speaking of spelling errors, the team of medical students misspelled Novocain. I hope none of them are planning on being anesthesiologists. The drug name is actually procaine, and the commercial name is Novocain, though it is often spelled with an e at the end when referred to in general terms. But they, and many other teams, spelled it novacaine. Good thing spelling didn’t count on that one.

In second place was Tweedle Dumb. Now I don’t know how they did last week, but I was glad to see them finally break through into the winner’s circle this time. They had been inching up in the standings as team leader Derwin mixed and matched his friends to optimize his chances of winning and it looks like he finally found the right combination. Keep it up!

One team prematurely ejokerated, using the joker on a 9-point round when had they saved it for their 15-point performance in round 8, we’d have had a tiebreaker for first. Another team lost their joker for playing with more than 6 people. They could have finished in second if they followed the rules. Anyways, thanks everyone for coming out. I really enjoy seeing all your faces. Come back next Tuesday for another Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz!

Jonathan (Jon Julio Anejo)

My name is Jonathan and I hail from West Roxbury.  I came over from a competing pub quiz company in the Boston area that was started in this very same neighborhood.  If you can guess who they are, message me with the correct answer to win nothing. You know who else comes from here?  The actress who played Dagny in Atlas Shrugged Part I but not Atlas Shrugged Part II.  I bet you'd love to know more fun facts about West Roxbury.

I grew up in a Suburban town South of Boston which now includes a large retail outpost for a company in Sweden that makes furniture. After high school I spent the next 12 years in Philadelphia where I paid a large amount of money for a college degree which I do not currently use.  Over 40 grand to lose my Boston accent.  I also hacked out a living in my post-college career bumming around the "Swamps of Jersey".  These days I tend bar at a Restaurant in Boston for a living.  And yes Mom and Dad, it's a way of making a living

As far as quizmastering goes, I can be found both in Boston and in Cambridge.  I run the show at Battery Park on Monday nights at 7:00pm as well as at The Phoenix Landing in Central Square on Wednesday nights at 7:30.  Stop by and say hi!

Filling in at the Hong Kong is always fun, and I'm always grateful that Ryan lets me do it when he needs a night off. Staff is awesome, the crowd is awesome and they have some killer beers here. Some of those beers were mentioned in tonight's brew-heavy round 4 which was very well performed.

Tonight was dominated (plagued?) by Ebolacoaster Tycoon who nailed round after round, earning no less than 7 points in a single round and kind of sliding off in round 8 with a score of 8 but the damage was certainly done. Sneaking into 2nd place due to a team size violation by We Can't Win Anyway was the runner-up prize winning Happy Birthday Amanda. All was not lost for We Can't Win as a member of the that team won this week's email bonus. Nicely done! 

I stuck around after the quiz to watch a little playoff baseball and chatted with an O's fan about his teams chances against the red hot Royals. He seemed hopeful but not too enthused. I also appreciate when depravity is peppered into the quiz. Ebola, dead people and the unabomber were all fair game. As always, its been fun. Hope to pop in here sometime again soon!
