Nathan Hall (Quizmaster Nate Dogg)

In 1992, a crack-addicted quizmaster one-man commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime he didn't commit. This man promptly escaped from a maximum security stockade to the Anchorage, Alaska underground. Today, still wanted by the government, he survives as a quizmaster of fortune. If you have a pub quiz problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him....maybe you can hire Quizmaster Nate Dogg.

"Certain kinds of information can be more or less important, depending on the context. For instance, in the South Park episode "Pinkeye", the space station Mir (which really existed) lands on Kenny McCormick (a fictional character), killing him. The overall importance of this piece of information may be hard to define: it may be considered for inclusion in the article on Kenny McCormick as another cause of Kenny's death; and/or in the "Pinkeye" article (while Kenny's cause of death is not critical, it is an element of the plot); though, as it did not happen in real life, it is not important to the article Mir." ---Wikipedia entry for "Handling Trivia"

"Same as it ever was... Same as it ever was... Same as it ever was... Look where my hand was Time isn't holding us Time isn't after us Same as it ever was... Same as it ever was... Same as it ever was... Same as it ever was... Same as it ever was... Same as it ever was... Same as it ever was... Yeah, the twister comes Here comes the twister Same as it ever was..."---Talking Heads, "Once In A Lifetime", 1980

"Trivia really is very important, you know But it’s a boy thing, admits Mark Mason. Women are just too sensible to watch Spinal Tap 35 times — but they don’t know what connects Ringo Starr and Shane Warne."---Mark Mason, "The Importance of Being Trivial: In Search of the Perfect Fact", 2008

"Work expands to fill the time available."---C. Northcote Parkinson

I like how this article makes a scientifically sound argument that pub quiz is good for your health. Now if only I can find a white paper that convincingly proved that 4 Newcastles a day keeps the doctor away.

Round 1: Is surreptitiously fucking considered sexual assault? More importantly, would this argument fizzle a.k.a. fail in court?

Round 2: I'd like to think if John Bonham had in his lifetime (before drinking himself to an early grave) perfected time travel instead of devoting his life to drag racing & drumming, he'd use his powers for good. Like traveling into the near future and stopping his buddy Jimmy Page from doing a collabo with P-Diddy for the Mathew Broderick version of Godzilla's theme song.

Round 3: I'd like to imagine a world in which there was a mid-90's procedural spin-off of "Twin Peaks" called "Fire Dick." Spoiler alert: Special Agent Cooper contracts a whole mess of STD's in the early salad days of his new private detective venture.

Round 4: Oh, to be a fly on the wall for that one day on the set of the original "The Stand" mini-series where Kareem Abdul-Jabbar shows up for one day to cameo as Corpse Pile Shoveler #3.

Round 5: My girlfriend, in the year 2015, still regularly quotes from "The Fifth Element." I refuse to refer to this film as a classic. It's the ending for me. "Ooohhh...I can't destroy this planet because I learned about love. Earth has taught me so much." OH PLEASE KINDLY SHUT THE HELL UP, ALICE OF RACCOON CITY!!!

Round 6: You know a word you really don't hear much anymore? Ass-bucket. You know why? Mostly because a pub quiz writer made it up.

Email Question: Call me old fashioned, but I believe children should not only not be seen or heard, their delusional self-denying old hipster parents shouldn't be pandered to with lullaby versions of Queens of the Stone Age. I'm looking in your general direction, Rockabye Baby!

Round 7: Irony Free Zone – I honestly had completely forgotten how touching and inspiring that clip of Latka Gravas was where he explains what you really need in life. *big breath* Ok, back to snarky. Whew, that was a close one there! I almost wrote something serious and personally meaningful back there. I mean yuck, right? *long awkward pause*

Round 8: Does Gloria Estefan owning a substantial interest in the football team mean that, by proxy, the Miami Dolphins have now been involuntarily annexed into becoming a part of the overall Miami Sound Machine? Or vice versa?

Tuesdays at Chilkoot Charlies.
Matthew ()

Ugh, why are you reading this?  Okay, fine.  A recent transplant to Alaska from Los Angeles, Matthew Burgoon hosts Geeks Who Drink on Tuesdays at Chilkoot Charlies.  Winner of zero awards for his standup comedy, he performs all over town, pontificating on such topics as Birds, Oliver Cromwell, and the time he saw a boob.  Perfect soulmate would be someone who'll rub his head like a dog.

 

This just in.... We're back. 

Did we ever leave?  I dunno, I read Nate Dog's last blog post, a touching tribute about the memories made while quizzing, and whoops, here we are.  It's kind of like when doomsday arrives and the newscaster looks solemly in the camera and tells us to hold our loved ones close and the feed cuts, only to turn back on when the meteor misses earth, the camera still on the newscaster who is now completely naked smoking a J.  That's what this is....

I managed to get the scoop on what happened behind the scenes, apparently the manager canceled it, THEN he didn't.  Wow, riveting.

 

Tonight's quiz was small but fun, the quizzer's tonight were some of the most fun people I've hung out with in awhile, we're still getting the word out on our second chance at life, and we're gonna build it up.  This is GWD V.2 

 

Quiz Notes:

four teams, pretty close scores.

the Lorde cover song is dope as hell, it's by the Sad Clown with the Golden Voice... you should listen to the whole thing. 

 

I found out there is a sea called 'Cosmonaut', that's dumb, I don't have a hot take for it, just saying.
