P.S. A little birdy told me that, as agreed per the terms of the deal, John Hanus, artistic director and performer for the Urban Yeti Improv, will perform a striptease dance routine to the Tears For Fear's classic song "Shout" at a show in October (date & time T.B.A.) @ the Alaska Experience Theatre here in Anchorage. More info to follow, we'll definitely keep you in the loop on this one. And yes, we all think it's slightly odd to pick an 80's Cold War protest anthem as the soundtrack to taking your clothes off in public in order to settle a bet. But hey, who are we to judge?

“You take the good, you take the bad,

You take them both and there you have

The facts of life, the facts of life.

There's a time you got to go and show

You're growing, now you know about

The facts of life, the facts of life.

When the world never seems

To be living up to your dreams

And suddenly you're finding out

The facts of life are all about you, you.

It takes a lot to get 'em right

When you're learning the facts of life. (Learning the facts of life)

Learning the facts of life (learning the facts of life)

Learning the facts of life.

You'll avoid a lot of damages

And enjoy the fun of managing

The facts of life;

They shed a lot of light

If you hear them from your brother,

Better clear them with your mother

Better get them right,

Call her late at night

You got the future in the palm of your hands

All you got to do to get you through is understand

You think you rather do without,

You will never make without the truth

The facts of life is all about you”

---Alan Thicke (1980)

Mrs. Garett: Girls, girls, girls! I just had another one of my brilliant ideas! I just now realized Alan Thicke was right. Not only was he right when he wrote those lyrics way back in the year of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ Of Nazareth 1980 Anno Domini…but those words ring true today as well: “You take the good, you take the bad, you take 'em both and there you have...The Facts of Life.” More importantly, those television situation comedy show theme song lyrics also speak directly to what happened at pub quiz tonight at Koot’s in Anchorage, Alaska with Quizmaster Nate Dogg. 

Blair (the Rich Bitch): Do you mean like in the episode “Brian & Sylvia” set in Buffalo, New York when Tootie & Natalie wind up in the middle of a marital spat between Tootie's Aunt Sylvia and her new husband? They were an interracial couple so I distinctly remember a heaping helping of 80’s taboo racism in there as well.

Natalie (The Funny One): Oh Blair! Apparently all the money in the world and you still can’t afford a single brain cell? What’s up with that? Obviously what Mrs. Garrett was strongly implying was that tonight’s trivia contest at Chilkoot Charlie’s on Spenard bore some striking similarities to the episode “The Big Fight” where you covered a boxing match at Bates Academy, the nearby boys' school, for the school paper. They were basically the male alter-egos of us but if we had just finished starring in “Grease 2” and our spin-off TV show never materialized. Shoot…I always mix that one up with “The Academy,” the one where we went to a school dance with boys from nearby Stone Military Academy.

Blair (The Rich Bitch): *signature whimpering sound*

Jo (The Troubled but Cute One): Natalie, what are we going to do with you? You are so funny…and I am…well…I am by comparison messed up. But cute. The cute thing goes a long way. I got to remember that…Anyhow, I agree to disagree with all of you. I personally found a lot of really interesting parallels between tonight’s installment of Geeks Who Drink and the episode “The Bicycle Man.” That’s the one where the police detective basically answers common questions that we posed to him. Then out of nowhere, Tootie remarked that Mr. Horton (the seemingly genial bicycle shop owner with the sinister secret) must be a homosexual, which the detective refuted quickly. But then it turns out later in the very special two-parter that he is a child molester, basically implying all of the gays are pedophiles. The bike shop owner convinced Tootie and her friends to come back into his house for ice cream and shirtless wrestling. Good thing Mrs. Garrett saved everybody just in the nick of time. Yay! Man oh man, let me tell you, that traumatic event sure did scar me for life.

Tootie (The Roller Skating’ Baby): Oooh, they're in troou-ble! 

Mrs. Garrett: Jo, I think what Tootie is trying to say is that you’re mixing up our fictional universe with an episode of “Diff Rent Strokes.” Which is completely understandable once you remember that the Drummonds had a brief cameo in the pilot and our show was a spin-off of “Diff Rent Strokes” to begin with. Not to mention the fact that Alan Thicke wrote both theme songs. See, it all comes full circle. Notice what I did there just now with the call back? Pretty clever, huh?

Natalie (The Funny One): So what ARE you trying to say, Mrs. Garrett? That tonight’s game was a metaphor for the one where we all went to Paris and we met the Chef Antoine the French jerk and his jerky French family?

Jo (The Troubled but Cute One): Maybe you’re thinking of our own personal “Bicycle Man”-type storyline, "The Runaway?" If you recall, that was when Tootie ended her adventure safely when her friends come to pick her up, she leaves behind teen prostitute Kristie, who spent most of the episode trying to bring Tootie into the fold. It was strongly implied that Kristie later suffered greatly at the hands of her pimp.

Blair (The Rich Bitch): Apparently Mrs. Garrett doesn’t have a monopoly on brilliant ideas at this all-girl boarding school campus. This just came to me right now off the top of my head: hows about I pay Jo to stop being such a Debbie Downer all the time and just act cute instead? Now I’m struggling to find a way to compare the contest to this. Honestly, I just really want to talk about the episode "A Friend in Deed." Remember when I discovered that my mom had been hiding her breast cancer? There was a tense scene where I was emotionally drained and implied Tootie was going tell the whole school about it. Tootie stood her ground and swore on our friendship that she'd never do such a thing. We hug. A second later, Jo came back from an obviously unsuccessful job interview at the motorcycle store and bursts into the room and starts tearing it apart looking for a clock and a fuse. Natalie is following her around, desperately trying to stop her. Mrs. Garrett jokingly asked if Jo was making a bomb and laughed. Natalie was all like, “Yes! Yes!” Mrs. Garrett was all horrified and like, “What?!” And Jo was like “I'm going to roll it through their front door, and then POW! BLOOEY-POW! Dead Kawasaki’s all over the street!” That day was 110% off the chain, yo.

Mrs. Garrett: Ladies, you can argue this until you turn blue. The good news is that you’re all correct, sort of. I just wanted to end Quizmaster Nate Dogg’s meta-blog recap on an emotional note but then abruptly cut to the end credits and an upbeat theme song. 2nd place for this was definitely “Front Page.” It’s the episode where in order to get back at her journalism teacher, Jo writes a story about his recent arrest at a cocaine party but doesn't get all the facts straight. Jo accidentally ruins her professor career by publishing a story about him without the full facts and then immediate smash cut and lyrics about getting your facts right. I’ll settle this argument once and for all. It was during rehearsals for the school production of "South Pacific." In the immortal words of Miss Downs: “Now remember, Tootie, the man you love is missing in action. He may be wounded...he may be dead. And you've never told him how you feel. *beat* Hit it, Brenda!”

Extra special thanks goes out to Quizmistress Laleyna for her excellent photographic contributions. Tres magnifique!

Quizmaster Nate Dogg - Anchorage, AK - Every Thursday night 7:30 Post-Meridian @ The World Famous Chilkoot Charlie's on Spenard!
Nathan Hall (Quizmaster Nate Dogg)

Nate Dogg = Accelerated reader. A.K.A. Wedding DJ Space Boy. Card-carrying Agnostic. Coffee monkey. Compulsive list-maker. Constant complainer. Definitely not a good role model for children. Dirty old man. Eternally sleepy. Excel ninja. Ex-Green Party member. Former girly drink drunk. Hopeless romantic. Incurable cinephile. Music nerd. Not really a gangsta rapper in real life. Paperback writer. Scrabble shit talker. Semi-pro stand up comic. Simaltaneously both the Enabler & the Diminisher. Terrible with money. Your Quizmaster this evening. 

Whenever someone asks me about what was indisputably the truly greatest game of modern times here in good ole Western civilization, I have to ask them to stop and be just a tad more specific. (It would have to be a hypothetical someone, as technically no one’s ever actually asked me this question. Yet. But here me out, people!)

You could say it was the 1958 NFL Championship football game between the Baltimore Colts and New York Giants in Yankee Stadium. It was the 1st sudden death overtime football game; they made up that rule on the spot. According to legend, someone from NBC ran onto the field to cause a distraction in order to buy some time after accidentally unplugging the TV signal cable. 15 players/coaches involved in the game (including Johnny Unitas) are now in the Football Hall of Fame. It remains the only NFL championship game decided by overtime.

But let’s say you (being the hypothetical someone in this scenario) hate football. This isn’t a recap blog for Jocks Who Drink, after all. What about that one old Disney Shia Labeouf movie directed by Bill Paxton?  

You’re right. I did indeed thoughtlessly neglect to mention the 1913 U.S. Golf Open where 20-year-old Francis Ouimet, an amateur caddie from Brookline, Massachusetts defeated British champion Harry Vardon. Ouimet’s caddie was a 10-year-old playing hooky from grade school. So, there’s that.

However, if history has taught us anything, it has conclusively proven that golf is pretty much the worst. Unless you count H.O.R.S.E. (Which I don’t because I’m a gentleman, Goddamnit!) Granted, there’s significantly less concussive head injuries. But maybe that’s actually a bad thing. After all, concussions would help you to forget you were ever at such a low point in your life that you were hitting rock bottom i.e. playing golf. On purpose. What of the games that truly matter in today’s world? I’m speaking of course about those games of the video variety.  

The easy answer would be the classic franchises of the medium: Tetris, Minecraft, Mario, Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare/Black Ops, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, Grand Theft Auto, Halo, Doom, Legend Of Zelda, Tomb Raider, Street Fighter, Goldeneye 007, Sonic The Hedgehog, Castlevania, Pac-Man, Resident Evil, Metal Gear Solid, Space Invaders, Final Fantasy, Metroid.

Sure, I'll concede the point that you do have the right to bring up World of Warcraft here but you would clearly be wrong and I would have no alternative to immediately cease speaking to you and angrily walk away, my blood thirsty rage barely held in check. So instead of that, let’s choose to not assume you’re not a horrible human being, pretend I didn’t hear you correctly and politely move on with the conversation.

Then, because this is Quizmaster Nate Dogg you’re (hypothetically) talking to of course, I’d give you an unsolicited list of the less-recognizable games that should be on that list as well:    

Then I’d finally just give up and say it’s clearly a three-way-tie between Red Dead Redemption, Portal & BioShock. And then you’d logically remind me, Hey Quizmaster Nate Dogg, what in the Sam Hell does this have to do with last night’s pub quiz in Anchorage, AK? And I would have no choice but to answer back: NOTHING! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! STUPID! YOU SO STUPID! And then I would most likely scurry away because I’m not good with physical confrontations. I minored in English, for the love of The Adventures of Pete & Pete! My only defensive moves are A.) Groin kicks and B.) Submitting a witty essay chock full o’ biting satire to the New Yorker magazine that will ultimately never get published.  

Furthermore, for the record, I come from a long humble line of intelligent, long-living cowards. My dad was a draft dodger, sure. But if he had died in Nam out there in the shit, then I never would have been born. Yeah, he’s no patriot but he’s also not another fool to fall victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous of which is the aforementioned "never get involved in a land war in Asia" - but only slightly less well-known is this: "Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line"! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha…
