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!

Its been some time Cambridge, hasn't it! I've subbed here a couple times before and I always appreciate when Ryan lets me temporarily take over this pretty awesome venue. Strong performances tonight and a late in the game joker surprise sent everything all topsy-turvy. Thats how we like it.

Performance was strong early on for Pale Blue Waffle and they commanded the lead during the first seven rounds of the quiz, jokering wisely in audio round 2. Things got turned upside down when Don't Put all your Eggs in one Market Basket nailed round 8 with a joker to send them over the top and into 1st place when the quiz ended. Nice work. Spence won this week's email prize. He was the lucky winner out of over a dozen or so submissions. Good to see that kind of participation!

Very creative team names this week, Cambridge never fails to push the envelope when it comes to this stuff. While it's common knowledge that Porno for Pyros was a spin-off of Jane's Addiction, I found it amusing that we acknowledged them as so yet played a Janes Addiction song that came out after Porno for Pyros called it quits. Robert Downey Jr. was a drugged out terror? Who knew. See you next time!

My latest travels took me to New York City last weekend where I did an assortment of activities, including running a total of about 11 miles, drinking Malort in Central Park, and making my first ever trip to Coney Island. I knew going into Coney Island that I’d be having a Nathan’s Hot Dog from the original stand over there, which I was pretty excited about. I also recalled that it was the place where a bunch of folks got together once a year to see who could shove the most wieners in their mouths in a certain time span. Anyways, there’s a sign there that says how many days, hours, minutes, and seconds there are to the next contest, and I was taken back when I saw the number of days counted in the 300s. Egads, I thought, I just missed the last contest! When was it? How did I miss it? And then I realized that it was on July 4th, which was just two weeks prior. So then I thought, “Ohhhh, that’s right,” followed by, “I’m an idiot.”

But the Duh! round question on the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest couldn’t fool any of you guys. Nine teams, nine right answers. But what did fool everyone was the question on who occupies the East Wing of the White House. All of you answered with the Vice President, when the answer was the First Lady. I guess keeping the President and his spouse on opposite ends of the building is the key to maintaining a harmonious marriage.

The quiz turned out to be a close one. Wyld Stallyns triumphed over All Hands on Dick! by one single point. In fact, if Dick hadn’t swapped the birth places of Penelope Cruz and Salma Hayek, they would have prevailed. And if they knew that the Black Eyed Peas song was titled Pump It and not Push It, we’d have gone to a tiebreaker. So close there.

Everyone’s lesson of the day: horology is a science concerned with the measurement of time. This amused me greatly and is a sign that I am still not a grown up, and probably never will be one.

We had a Doctor Who question at last night’s Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz. Well, we actually had two, but one was a bonus question. The question asked who is playing the 12th Doctor, and the answer was, of course, Peter Capaldi. (I know, I make it sound like everybody should know the answer.) But disappointingly, I had a team guess Benedict Cumberbatch, who has about as much of a chance of ever playing The Doctor as John Oliver—nil.

But it got me thinking, could BC have a chance at becoming the next James Bond? Well with the help of the Googles, I learned that this has apparently been a floating rumor for some time now, though there is a parallel rumor that he will play the villain in Bond 24. He’d rock either role, villain or hero, but he wouldn’t be my personal favorite to be the next James Bond. That would be Idris Elba. I think Heimdall would be a great pick for the role, but if it’s going to happen, it’ll have to happen soon. Daniel Craig is already locked in for Bond 25, meaning Elba will be nearly 50 the next time the role could even potentially open up. Is that too old? I don’t know. But I’m sure the next Bond actor will sign on for a few films and I can’t imagine Bond 28 or 29 being played by a 60-year-old.

Anyways, know your British actors, and you’ll be well on your way to at least two points in the GWD quiz. (Cumberbatch appeared on a visual round question.) Knowing all but eight of last night’s questions was Comcast Customer Service, who finished with 87 points. Trailing them by just three points was Mark it 8, Dude, before a big drop off in scores for third-place The C U Next Tuesdays. The other four teams all had their chances—some smarter jokering, as well as better listening to the directions, could have really changed up the standings there. Let me remind you that you should always be jokering one of the 16-point rounds to max out on your potential scores.

Thanks for coming and playing the quiz. Have great weeks and come back next Tuesday for another edition of the Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz. Oh, and don't forget, Harry Potter quiz on Saturday.
