Lalenya (Quizmistrix Lalenya)

Lalenya is a veteran quizzer from Seattle.  She cut her teeth playing (and winning with her amazing teammates) at such venues as Mulleady's, The Old Pequliar, Coopers and of course, The Globe (now The Ould Triangle).  A founding member of the Pantsless Pete Appreciation Society, she has been quizzing with Geeks Who Drink for almost a year.  She misses playing, but really enjoys hosting, and understands the importance of a great Quizmaster.

I love subbing at Koots!  Y'all are a bunch of super fun quizzers and always make me feel welcome!

Tonight we saw the return of the Cousins, well at least one of them.  Back At Quiz And It Feels So Right made an appearance to let us know they're gearing up for the Rumble.  Unfortunately, they only placed third, but it's a good start.

Moose Munchers took an early lead and somehow managed to hang on and tie the comeback kids of Malaysian Airlines: When You Really Wanna Get Away From It All for first.  We had a tie-breaker round that resulted in exactly the same correct answers.  I offered a second round, but they opted to take the $25 & $15 cash, pool them together and split it evenly amongst the five of them.  What sports!

Kudos to Adam & Ryan both for winning two bonus questions and pizza from Mordecai's.  Also congrats to Aurora for winning the email prize of Raisin Cookies are the Reason I Have Trust Issues gum!  More people should sign up for the email so they too can win fabulous prizes.  You can do so here!

Come play with me at Tap Root on Sundays at 7pm!  And give Nate a big hug next Thursday upon his return!

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. 

They say you should never meet your heroes. Well, whoever “they” are has obviously not had stand-up comedian Doug Stanhope show up unannounced during a flight layover to crash their pub quiz. The closest I can come to explaining this to civilians is that it was kind of like as if the ghost of Bill Hicks stumbled in half-wasted to good naturedly heckle you. What would you do if a modern day Lenny Bruce showed up at your day job?

This Thursday’s pub contest will go down as, without a doubt, the most surreal night of Quizmastering I’ve experienced thus far with the good folks at Geeks Who Drink. It also ranks up in the lifetime top 10 list of most bizarre personal celebrity incidents for moi in general. I’m going to put this one up there on the same level as the one time I interviewed Cheech Marin while he was pooping. I’m going to come right out and say this may even top me accidentally causing Wesley Willis to start violently tearing apart the bar when I accidentally uttered one of his “trigger words.” Maybe.

For the uninitiated, you may know Doug (Yes, you heard me correctly, that’s right; we’re obviously now close personal friends that know each other on a first name basis) from “The Man Show,” “Girls Gone Wild,” “The Aristocrats,” “Fun With Pedophiles,” “Louie,” etc. Stanhope parties with people you might of heard of before, like Johnny Depp and Marilyn Manson for starters.  He landed a bit part in an upcoming movie with Chris Rock, Rosario Dawson and Kevin Hart. He got a lot of press last year when he raised money for an Oklahoma tornado victim that had drawn the ire of local Christian disaster relief organizations for stating she was an atheist during the obligatory Wolf Blitzer interview. On a local level here in Alaska, he was the man responsible for 2008’s savebristolpalin.com campaign. The website was dedicated solely to raising money to fund an abortion for Sarah Palin’s daughter.

It’s worth prefacing here that as a general rule, AK locals here do their level best to not make a big fuss out of famous people. Tourists largely come here to be left alone and we try our hardest to respect their privacy. It’s also pertinent here to note that Doug also dropped by Wednesday night to do a quick impromptu set of new material during the standing up comedy open microphone I DJ/tell jokes at. That was pretty amazing too.

Round 3: Stanhope buys all the roses from the weird flower salesman guy and was handing them out to quizzers while wearing a bridal veil.

Round 6: Stanhope stands up and barks into his phone, “Hello? Is this the President of Hollywood? I want you to write this man’s name down: N-A-T-H-A-N H-A-L-L. You told me to scour the bowels of this country for new talent and I think we’ve found the next Jimmy Kimmell. This guy’s got what it takes! Get started on the standard rich-and-famous contract ASAP!”

Round 7: Despite checking it 3 times before the show, sound doesn’t work for the video round. Again. Awesome. Yeah me! Doug resorts to bellowing out phrases like “He had it coming!” during the John Lennon question.  

Round 8: As final scores are being announced, Stanhope informs the bigwigs on the speakerphone conference call that I just blew my big chance at stardom because I didn’t let his team win.    

As I pack up, Stanhope clinks glasses with me, says it was good to see you and genuinely apologized in case he accidentally really cheesed me off. I reply it was nice to formally meet him, it was all in good fun and no real feelings were hurt. This being summer in the Arctic Circle, the sun is shining brightly even though it’s 10 P.M. As I wait outside for SNAPS to pick me up, Stanhope walks up to me with cigarette in hand. Before I have a chance to react, he whispers, “Don’t fight it” and then proceeds to unceremoniously kiss me. I’m not sure if tongue would have occurred because I, per usual, started nervously giggling. (It’s my go-to coping mechanism.) Stanhope remarks, “You’re not supposed to laugh during it. Maybe afterwards.” And with that, Doug hops into his ride to the airport. And myself?  I simply just go back to doing what I always do: just being another boring old quizmaster editing pictures on his cell phone for the blog recap.

Extra special thanks goes out to Tracey @ Team Stanhope, Quizmistress Laleyna and my partner-in-crime Kyle Farrell for photographic contributions this Thursday night. Also, please note that if you won a guest list spot for this Saturday’s Beerfest in the Koot’s parking lot, all you need to bring is an ID with the name you scribbled down for me that proves you are 21+ to attend.

James George Janos, a.k.a. Jesse Ventura, is an American politician, actor, author, naval veteran, professional wrestler, the 38th Governor of Minnesota (1999-2003), conspiracy theorist and above all else a veteran sports color commentator. The following is an abridged transcript of the so-called “lost” previously un-aired final episode of “Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura.” Ventura has speculated that the federal government is largely to blame for the cancelling of his show in 2012, specifically citing this expose on trivia rather than declining ratings as to was what ultimately got him “banned,” for the time being at least, from TruTV.      

Ventura: Hidden power, secrets, cover-ups, corruption. You think you know the whole story about pub quiz? Think again. I've been governor, a Navy SEAL, a fighter. I've heard things that will blow your mind. And now I think it's time that you get the whole story.

Quizmaster Nate Dogg: DO IT!  DO IT! OH MY GOD! CAT FIGHT! SHE LIKES IT! HE’S DONE IT THIS TIME! GOOD GOD ALMIGHTY, THEY KILLED HIM!

<Grainy black-and-white security camera footage of rival quizmasters, visibly intoxicated and viciously beating one another bloody with metal folding chairs during Geek Bowl 8.>

Ventura: A Navy SEAL will defy death at least twice a week. When you get that kind of familiarity with death, barriers go down, and anything else seems insignificant. That’s exactly what it’s like to be a quizmaster. So I understand why stuff like this happens. When you get a force of that many hundreds of warriors together, there's bound to be trouble.

<Unidentified Quizmaster wearing a crimson mask requests deadlier weapons as the riot spills out into the streets>

Crimson Mask QM: Get the tables!

Ventura: I’m not going to pretend to be someone I’m not. I’ve never been a quizmaster. Hell, some felt I wasn’t academically qualified to teach at Harvard. And they were right. However, I might add that I still have three years of eligibility left if Harvard wants me for its football team. While we’re at it, I’ll just admit I’m not the sharpest knife in the drawer to begin with. I once told a reporter if I could be reincarnated as a fabric, I would come back as a 38 double-D bra. When I met with Tenzin Gyatso, the 14th Dalai Lama back in 2001, I asked him the most important question that I think you could ask — if he had ever seen “Caddyshack.” If you recall, there is a scene in that film where the character played by Bill Murray tells a story about having caddied for the Dalai Lama…where was I? Oh yeah. But there is one thing I do know about. And that’s pub quiz.

<Obligatory montage of sped-up pre-quiz set-up shots>

Ventura: For those of you who are unfamiliar with their rituals, you might be surprised to learn it is tradition before every pub quiz for teams to gather together outside the bar and talk some serious trash not unlike the first segment on pro-wrestling broadcasts.

Chechnyan Moonshine: Oh, what a rush! Oh, you didn’t know we were showing up tonight? Your ass better call somebody!

Your Mother’s No Thief, But You Should See Her Snatch: It doesn’t matter what you think! We snack on danger and dine on death!

Crouching Women Hidden Cucumber: Just when you think you know the answers, I change the questions. I don’t care that all you do is lie, cheat and steal. I really don’t! I’m the man of the hour, the man with the power, too sweet to be sour…

Scream If You Wanna Go Faster: Oooh, looks like business just picked up! Rest in peace, assholes!

Trivia Newton John: Oh yeah! We’re the best there is, the best there was, the best there ever will be! Have a nice day, dumbasses!

E=MC Hammer: Woooo! Know your role, and shut your mouth! To be the man, you have to beat the man! And you are definitely not beating this man, so suck it!

Raped By Dolphins: I heard you been hanging with Hulk Hogan lately. Hanging onto every word he says. Treating it as if it was gospel. Train. Say your prayers. Eat your vitamins. How’s that workin’ out for ya, you bunch of well-dressed nancy boys?

Fat Kids Shouldn't Play See-Saw: Ask anybody, they’ll tell you: I’m a limousine ridin’, jet flyin’, kiss stealin’, wheelin’ and dealin’ son of a bitch. Everyone has a price. So how much is it going to cost me to get you sad sacks of shit from showing up here every Thursday and embarrassing yourselves week after week?

Mr. T’s Favorite Yogurt: Damn boy, everybody already knows pimpin’ ain't easy! But you obviously ain’t even trying no mo'. You not even going through the motions. If Donald Trump was here right now, he woulda yelled, “You’re fired!” before your sorry asses even walked past the metal detector.

On a Mission Without Permission: You give me a water board, that one weird team who calls themselves Dick Cheney and one hour, and I'll have them confess to the Sharon Tate murders.

Crimson Mask QM: Five letters. Two words. I quit. No! I wanna holler the loud funny words! I LIKE THIS MAN, HE IS MY FRIEND! (points to the microphone) I LIKE YOU AND HIM! HE LIKES ME! AND I LIKE HIM! HE LIKES YOU, I HOPE! I LIKE HIS AUTOGRAPH! IT IS A NICE PICTURE! HE IS NICE! (Crimson Mask Quizmaster's tongue falls off)
