Longtime quizzer, newbie quizmaster. Music nut and lover of queer/feminist sci-fi in all of its forms. KCMO is now my home, although I claim Arkansas as my root. I've got lots of nicknames and if you come up with one I like, I might add it to the list.

Tonight was a hot time at the Green Room Burgers and Beer as 13 teams battled it out to see who would stand atop quiz mountain. While the winner was clear, runner-up required some extra work on the part of four teams, but in the end, we sorted it out.

Round one featured anagrammed names of presidents and sometimes an anagram holds truth. Red anal organ = Ronald Reagan, check. Wow, indoors owl = Woodrow Wilson, check. Lick wily , mailmen = William McKinley, maybe, I don’t really know him that well. Everyone rocked it though many have forgotten Martin Van Buren, but he spoke Dutch so he’s got that flag to wave high. 

Our music round was a grower, not a shower, and could have used a fluffer on occasion. Eight songs all about the trials and tribulations of erections and making them do what you want when you want. I guess that could be fun, but it just seems like a lot of work. I’ll admit to not having much hands on experience in this arena, so I could be completely off base. My favorite had to be the inclusion of The Soft Parade by The Doors. That’s a great add.  

We also had a timed round and the music about killed me. I’ve blogged about how I’m no fan of songs with Jenny in them, except maybe De La Soul. Using Tommy Tutone’s 867-5309 as our timer tonight, almost pushed me over the edge and distracted me from the fact that all the  quizzers couldn’t name 8 JLaw movies to save their lives. 6, yes. And, no, movies that aren’t out yet do not count.

Putting together mean girls and dog training may have been a bit much, but we all learned about mean TV hosts and a Desperate Housewife. We will all likely remember the name of Lassie’s original trainer, Rudd Weatherwax, because that is a name. If that’s not a stage name, then kudos to his parents for putting that all together. Sounds like he would have had a firm hand and maybe he could have trained Timmy to stay out of the damn well.

Great Job! did a really great job to take home first and $30 from the Green Room. Then we ended with a four way tie for second. With only two prizes, we had to sort that shit out. We set up four beers and asked for a representative from each team. Then we went over the rules and let ‘em go. I figured I should take a video in the event of a photo finish so enjoy that video here.  Animatronic Grandma got the glass down first, barely, taking home second. Gaza Strippers: 500+ for Peace were next for third place and took home some bombers of Stone Brewing Company beers to practice for next time.

Get your team together and prove your team is supreme. Rumble in the Pub, the only tournament that matters, returns to select cities in August. You've got to register, but that part's easy and free -- head to geekswhodrink.com/rumble for more details!

Thank you all for a great night of quizzing.  You're each special and let's do it again soon.

Mellow temperatures returned to KCMO and the quizzers returned to the patio to enjoy them. Beer flowed and burgers were eaten and quiz was fun, if not a bit challenging. We even had an extra 16 point round tonight, but it was no easy task either.

Our first round featured a series of questions leading us to an American treasure or something like that. Each answer featured a fine cinematic work of Nicholas Cage as a clue for our bonus question. Apparently some teams didn’t quite solve the mystery or very few people remember his work in World Trade Center. I certainly didn’t and I’m just fine with that. 

This week’s music round featured four original groups and four related spin-off bands or solo artists. The Breeders as a spin-off of The Pixies. I don’t know that I can agree, but I do love me some Deal sisters and I’m happy they’ll have new music coming out with their old buddy Josephine Wiggs. And they’ll be playing in KC. While there are many spin-offs of the Beatles, we were looking for Ringo there. I’ll agree that it sounded a bit like a Wings song, but George Harrison would roll over in his grave before he made a song like that. Overall, a fun little round and most folks did well enough.  

Our visual round was a bonus 16 pointer on Horrible Bosses from television and movies. I was happy to see that most of you recognized one of my favorite movies 9 to 5, but only a few got the name of the egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot of a boss, Franklin Hart. I need to watch it again. And so should all of you.

Round 7 featured a bevy of radio and podcast hosts trying to sell us some thing and many of teams struggled to identify them. From dog food to sex toys, they were trying to sell us everything. Tig Notaro sounded like she should have been doing anything else in the world than a commercial, but maybe she was in the middle of chemo and that would make sense. NPR nerds were excited to hear Ira Glass and Peter Sagel in a quiz. And why wouldn’t you want to buy your pet food from Snooki. That makes perfect sense. Right.

Animatronic Grandma ended up on top of the quiz heap and took home a $30 from the Green Room. Dr. Oz’s Mitochondrial Farts landed in second and ended up with $20 from the Green Room. The Drunk Puppies stumbled into third and took home the beer prize. Salem from The Drunk Puppies was our email question winner and selected a stylish box to store her drugs or candy or what have you.

Are you a Griffindor or a Slytherin? Do you have a shrine in your home in memory of Dumbledore? If you geek out about Harry Potter, get set for the next Geeks Who Drink themed quiz on Saturday, July 19.

Summertime and quizzing ain't too easy. Well, easier for some of you. Monday at the Green Room brought a great bunch of quizzers, including several new teams and some trash talking between a few regulars. Even if it wasn’t your week to be on top, there’s always next week for your team claw its way to the top of the heap.

We also had a trainee reading a few rounds and he did pretty damn good. Derek was only heckled a few times and he mostly pronounced everything right. All of us at the Green Room wish him the best in his future quizmaster endeavors. And don’t fuck it up, but if you do, try to make it funny.

Our music round proved to be challenging even thought it only featured four song titles. That’s half the song titles. It Takes Two Part 1 was the more recognizable Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock, but Part 2 confused the heck out of everyone. That version featured Rod Stewart and Tina Turner butchering that poor song. 

Round 7 featured clips from a wide variety of religious TV shows. I guess they Flying Nun qualifies, but it’s the only one that I really watched. I used to watch the 700 Club to see what was going on in the gay community and to see the most outrageous floats from pride parades across the country. I wasn’t their intended audience, but they always kept me informed as a young gay. 

Will The TSA Make Us Turn On Our Vibrators took home first place and a $30 from the Green Room. Iraq 2: Iraq-no-phobia took home jumped up into second place and $20 from the Green Room. Animatronic Grandma took third for the second week and took home the beer prize. Jonathan from Will The TSA Make Us Turn On Our Vibrators was our email question winner and took home a box of wonderful shit matches.
