10 years ago, I left the frozen tundra of Canada to escape the blistering cold of winter, only to move to South Texas where I now run the risk of combusting in the blistering heat of summer.  Apparently I'm drawn to extremes.  No middle of the road for this Crazy Canuck.

I was in severe need of a creative outlet and a place where yelling obsenities at people was acceptable, (and wouldn't get me fired).  Then one day I was handed a microphone by the Overlords at Geeks Who Drink.  I was instructed to "Go forth and entertain drunken nerds with wit and snark.  Oh, and ask them these quiz questions while you're there."

And so I did, and it was good.

If you quiz at a venue where video rounds are shown for round 7, then chances are it was produced by me.  I hope you enjoy them.

I have been accused of "hating everything" but I actually like many things.  I am a total geek for Star Wars, the works of Neil Gaiman, The Ramones, Shonen Knife, Nerdist, (Classic) Dr. Who, pro wrestling, good beer, poutine, British television and cheese.  All else is pointless, irrelevant and a waste of time.

I am also a part-time ninja.

I've gotta say, I was rather astounded by just how many of you guys were out there that didn't know Joan Rivers' famous catch-phrase? This just goes to show that a) I'm old as fuck. b) It's been a really long time since “Can we talk?” was a thing. And c) Joan Rivers became more well known later in life for being a catty bitch slamming people for not dressing to her high standards. Really, guys, “can we talk” was pretty big back in the day. It would be about as big as WTF. Only people that actually say “WTF” like that sound like idiots. I'm sorry, but they do.

So, it's interesting the responses we got to that question. Most of you tried desperately to slam together a 3 word phrase that she would most likely say while hosting one of the zillion pointless red carpet shows she did. We had:

That is terrible. No she didn't. Oh my God. Time to change. Talk to me. Oh come on. It's almost time.

We also had a round tonight involving Lego. I would also like to state for the record that the plural of Lego isn't “Legos”. The proper plural of Lego is “Lego bricks”. There ya go. You learned something today. Now, I didn't play with Lego much when I was a kid. My Lego play mostly consisted of making some sort of prison/pit to drop my Star Wars action figures in, or a wall for them to bust through. I just wasn't very creative at building things with Lego bricks. I do still have the couple of little sets I got when I was a kid, so that's kind of cool to be able to see where Lego has gone in the last 30+ years. Now I freak out at how cool the Lego sets are now. They're huge and the detail on them is phenomenal. I've even purchased a few sets over the past few years. I picked up the Ghostbusters Ecto-1 a while back and holy crap it's so awesome.

Were you guys as stunned as I was to discover that the Vice President makes less than the Postmaster General? I have no idea what the Postmaster General actually DOES. Mind you, what does the Vice President do except clap behind the President during the State of the Union Address, anyway? Someone please enlighten me on this.

Anyway, have a great week everyone and we'll see you next time.

Today, I logged into my Geeks Who Drink employee account to discover that I have been an official member of the Geeks Who Drink team for 4 years. It was 4 years ago almost to the day that I pulled up to the Lion and Rose to learn what it takes to kick ass on the mic and host a Quiz for the absolute best bar quiz company in the entire country. I had first cut my teeth as a player at this very same establishment, and felt it was time to move up in the ranks when the opportunity presented itself. I didn't get the gig as the new host here right away, but I did get it about 6 months later after I had started hosting around San Antonio at other venues. The faces have changed, but the place is still the same all these years later. I am pretty sure nobody in the bar tonight (excluding one or two of the bar staff and maybe one Quizzer) was there the night I was trained. Did I fuck up that night? Nope. In fact my trainer for the evening was quite content to kick back and let me run the entire show. Huzzah!

And I've never looked back.

That said, we had a Quiz tonight! The day after Labor Day is always a mystery as to what kind of crowd we're going to get. But you guys that came out are the hard core. You partied it up all weekend long and still had a bit left in the tank to come out for one more night! You guys rock.

I'm going to have to admit that maybe I'm getting old. We had a round on apps, but I gotta say that I don't use any of them. Nope. None of the apps in that round are on my phone. Except for Angry Birds because Star Wars. But even still, it's gone unused for at least 6 months now. So it doesn't really count, does it. Same goes with Instagram.

We talked about marathons tonight too. Anyone here ever run a marathon? I have not. I've run a half marathon though. 3 times to be exact. I had a tough enough time running half a marathon so you can forget running a full one. I'd be that dude Pheidippides long before hitting mile 26, that's for sure. And an iron man triathlon? Screw that. I don't hate my body enough to punish it to the extent. I ran a half marathon one time and I blew out my calf muscle running down a hill. ON MILE FIVE. That was rough, let me tell you. Ended up walking most of the way because I could only get about 100 yards before it would blow out on me again. But I finished! And that was the last time I ran a half marathon.

I hope you all have a fantastic week, and I'll see you guys next week.

Every now and then we have the type of lady in the crowd that I like to refer to as the Drunky McSlurs-a-lot. The type that is totally hammered before Quiz even starts and loves to shout out answers. Sometimes they just yell out random stuff just to get attention. I found myself fantasizing about the Drunky McSlurs-a-lot we had tonight. The fantasy involved giant spiders crawling all over her and biting her something fierce. This fantasy hit me right after she felt the need to yell out “SPIDERS” when I announced the round called Arachnophilia.  Yes, good job Drunky.  Probably the only thing you knew the answer to tonight.

Speaking of spiders, is anyone as creeped out by spiders as much as I am? Not so much the tiny ones that you encounter every now and then. I'm talking about the ones that are the size of your hand. There are bastards that big here in Texas and they creep me the hell out. I have gone hiking in the bush out in Texas and have encountered huge webs that span across the entire trail, with a big giant fucking spider sitting right in the middle of it. I have come very close to walking into those webs before and the though of it absolutely terrifies me. Are those spiders venomous? Don't know. Don't care. I don't even care what they're called. The name, “giant-assed fucking spider” is good enough for me. I just want to keep them as far away from me as absolutely possible.

I had a run in at a young age with something we called a “dock spider” that I swear almost caused me to down. They tend to live right near the water. I was never a strong swimmer, and one day, I was thrown off the dock at my cousin's cottage in order to get me used the water. Yeah....right. Anyway, I clawed my way back to the surface coughing, sputtering and panicking. I was frantically clawing my way back over to the dock only to discover 3 dock spiders blocking my path. In my 6 year old mind, I figured my two options were to drown right there in the lake, or get attacked and probably eaten by these dock spiders that were probably about 4 inches in length. I managed to half-assed dog paddle my way to a spot on the dock not infested with giant spiders. I get shivers just thinking about that. To this day, I get a bit nervous around deep bodies of water, and well the spider thing too.

Now that I've shared that story, and given myself lots of fodder to give me nightmares tonight, I'll wish you all a great week, and I'll see you next time.
