Travis (Sweet T)

There are some who call me... Travis.

I host the Geeks Who Drink quiz at Clouds Brewing in downtown Raleigh, NC every Monday night at 8 pm! I also scorekeep for mah boy Alex at Natty Greene's (also in Raleigh) every Tuesday night at 7:30! When I'm not doing one of those things, or working at my day job, I'm usually drunk, at home, playing Mass Effect or reading comics. "Geeks Who Drink" ain't just a job y'all, it's a way of life.

Yesterday on the Clouds Brewing blog (geekswhodrink.com/1634) I talked a big game about being able to figure out who on the Parks & Recreation team matched which characters from Marvel's Avengers. Time to prove my nerd cred with a full rundown:
Leslie Knope is Captain Marvel. Aggressive, idealistic, compassionate, born to kick asses and make lists of the asses that need kicking.
Ron Swanson is Captain America. Old-fashioned but infinitely capable. His only weaknesses are women from his past, and bacon.
Tom Haverford is Iron Man. An irrepressible entrepreneur whose success/failure ratio is about 50/50.
Donna Meagle is Black Panther. Y'know, the one black member of the team, who somehow has their shit together 200% more than anyone else.
Garry Gergich is the Hulk. Unwitting source of destruction, blamed for everything, huge penis.
April Ludgate- Black Widow. She's seen it all, or at least pretends she has. Hates most things. Very secretive about what she doesn't hate.
Andy Dwyer- Hawkeye. Kind of a fuckup, but the loveable kind. You wouldn't be surprised if you found out he was raised in the circus.
Ben Wyatt- Ant-Man/Scott Lang. Really smart guy with a serious inferiority complex.
Chris Traeger- Thor. What is up with this guy? He's too perfect. He cannot be from planet Earth
Ann Perkins- The Wasp. She's been around since the beginning, is super-nice and deserves more recognition. (Also she was nearly cast for this role in the Ant-Man movie but Kate from Lost got it, which sucks. Fuckin' Kate.)

Perd Hapley- The person I am referring to now, talks like this, which is to say, like a robot, such as the Vision, from the Marvel comics, about which, I've been writing.

Kickass turnout tonight at Natty Greene's, as usual! It was a close race all night between Lasagna for One, Dusty Farts and Strong Bad's Cool Trivia Team for Attractive People. Lasagna won 1st, and Strong Bad won the dance-off for 2nd place, but it was a close-run thing. Well done, everybody!

Interesting Notes from the Quiz:

-The Book of Proverbs does not say that "a noble wife is worth more than 1,000 bitches." It's rubies. 1,000 rubies. Bitches were way less expensive in the Old Testament.

- Shit, it's been 10 years since Charlize Theron was in Aeon Flux? Shit, that was Charlize Theron?

- Let's be clear, here: "pink kryptonite" that turns Superman gay was a satirical bit in one issue which was itself just a joke about old Silver Age tropes. Neither kryptonite nor anything else can "turn" someone gay. Well, maybe Idris Elba.

- Man, I miss Homestar Runner.

Hola! My name is Alex and I am the Quizmaster at Natty Greene's in Raleigh. I also perform comedy in the Triangle at DSI Comedy and with the improv group BONE CRACKER.

Ointment is a weird word.

Using the Internet to match me up with someone is something I’ve never really done before. The idea of it has always made me nervous. In my mind, it’s such a crap-shoot to find a responsible, nice person on any website to pair up with for an extended period of time, but I don’t have the benefit of time on my side. I needed to find something fast.

In my current situation, I’ve been with four to five people in the last two years, give or take. At this point in my life, though, I’m looking to either simmer with one person or be by myself. Sure, it’ll probably mean that I spend more money each month, but at least I’ll have more autonomy.

I opened up my laptop and went to the first website I could think of for my search - Craigslist. Great, there’s the link for ‘Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill”. Let’s see what kind of options I have available.

The link for “rooms & shares” was a little inconspicuous (what isn’t inconspicuous on that website, eh?), but it led me right to where I needed to go. I found a couple of listings in my area, and sent out some emails gauging interest.

Then I waited.

A few days passed, and I got a response. “Sounds great, Alex. Do you want to meet up for coffee to talk about the apartment?” Oh my god. I never thought I’d hear anyone say that again. It felt SO nice. “Of course. Where/when do you want to meet?”

We met for a cup of coffee that turned into three. We laughed, we chatted. It was bliss. Both of us left the coffeeshop talking about checking out the apartment and signing paperwork. So, I guess you could say things are getting pretty serious.

————————————————————

When you’ve been hosting quiz at Natty’s as long as I have, you’ll learn that the only way to settle a tie is to force our top teams to a dance battle. Ah yes, the famed “Dance Battle.” When I utter the words “tie score,” the chants for a battle start washing in. You can’t fight it, so just accept it and have fun.

Tonight’s smackdown featured a dancer from each Catholic Guilt, the Reason for the Season! and Fisherman’s Wife 2: The Re-Tentacling. Anyone in that room would attest that Catholic Guilt absolutely DESTROYED everything with his…dance? If you consider dancing thrashing around violently to the tune of Breakbot, then this guy was your Golden Ticket.

Sorry, Fisherman’s Wife. Once you resort to doing the Macarena, we all know you’ve run out of ideas and are on autopilot. It’s OK, though. We all do the Macarena when our brains stop working.

————————————————————

Interesting Notes from the Quiz!:

- So nice to see everyone listen to my instructions of “Wear green. Or don’t” for St. Patrick’s Day.

- Mad props to Blair on her second night of QM training.

- Round 2’s clips featured songs involved in lawsuits, and many were surprised to find out Coldplay’s “Viva la Vida” and Avril Lavigne’s “Girlfriend” weren’t taken to court simply for being shitty.

- Dumb and Dumber To is one of the worst movies I’ve ever tried to watch. I lasted ten minutes before I turned it off. And this is the same person who earnestly watched both Into the Blue 2 AND I, Frankenstein. I don’t know why either.

Alex Hofford (Hoffstradamus)

Hola! My name is Alex and I am the Quizmaster at Natty Greene's in Raleigh. I also perform comedy in the Triangle at DSI Comedy and with the improv group BONE CRACKER.

Ointment is a weird word.

Over the last week, I have been recuperating from getting my wisdom teeth removed. With that comes a boatload of spare time laying in bed doing mostly nothing. I clearly have a penchant for wasting said spare time watching things on Netflix, so I decided instead of binging on a bunch of movies, I’d start on a TV series I hadn’t checked out yet.

The menu suggested so many award-winning and critically-acclaimed shows, it was simply overwhelming. M*A*S*H*. Lost. Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I (and THE WORLD) have an incredible library of TV available at our fingertips, and choosing one to spend my days of recovery with was not a decision I was going to take lightly.

So what did I choose?

Arrow.

Naturally.

Over the course of watching - as of right now - 52 episodes, I’ve determined that the show is pretty decent. Sure, the acting is a bit dodgy at times, but it feels like I’m watching a comic book brought to life.

That’s not to say there aren’t some things that absolutely astound me while I’m watching the show. I’ve caught myself laughing and saying “oh, what the fuck” at plot reveals many, many times. What can I say? It’s fun to watch.

Here are some notes I’ve taken while binging the show:

- The amount of leather used in this show is astounding.

- If Laurel Lance was a mood ring, she would have exploded into a supernova by now.

- When tuning in to a new show, some are worried that it might be hard to get caught up on the plot. Well you need not worry about this show doing that to you. I estimate about 60% of this show’s dialogue is entirely exposition, and most of the episodes are split between present day and flashbacks to Oliver’s time on the island. DAT PLOT PROGRESSION DOE.

- The family drama in the show reminds me of The O.C. and made me wish Ben McKenzie was Arrow instead.

- Speaking of which, have you seen Gotham? That show is ridiculous, too.

- All of the parents in this show look freakishly young. Like, they look just a few years older than their children. I’m looking at you, Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman aka Captain Jack Harkness). That genetic freak.

- In need of a world-class hacker? Look in your company’s IT department.

- Bodyguards are always down for some sidekick action.

- If I hear the word “Mirakuru” one more time, I’m going to freak out.

All in all, you should give it a shot if you’re into superheroes. See what I did there? Because he’s an arch…OK.

————————————————

The lead was locked down the entire night (ironically) by In Second Place further proving the only person who could predict the future was Nostradamus. The actual second place team was Traded for a 7th Round Pick, and we could all guess how they ended up there. Well done, everyone.

—————————————————

Interesting Notes from the Quiz!:

- As teams In Second Place and 13th! could tell you, calling your shot like Babe Ruth rarely works at quiz. Aim higher, perhaps?

- Detroit gets a bad rep most of the time, but for every Kid Rock and ICP they give us, we get an Eminem and a Robocop. Not a bad trade-off.

- Round 2 featured cover songs by Train or its lead singer. The original title for the round was “Why?”

- I bet even Pat Moynahan’s mom skips her son’s songs when they come up on shuffle. “Ugh, MORE Train?!? Pass.”

- Cincinnati is where dreams come true - you can have a 3-way from Skyline Chili while you’re having a 2-way in a Flamingo airplane bathroom.
