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.

Hell of a turnout tonight at Quiz, I must say. It was nice to see so many of you coming out to Quiz for the very first time. I hope it''s not your last. Welcome to the revolution! I'm hoping you all had a good time. I know I always have fun hosting Quiz for you folks.

Are any of you as sick of summer as I am? Seriously, I think I've just about had my fill. I mean, when it's 11pm and it's still 92 degrees, something is fundamentally wrong here. My Canadian blood is not fit for temperatures this high. I can handle the heat for a couple of weeks, but once we hit month three of this heat, I'm pretty much done. And cranky. And irritable. And where in the hell was the rain we were promised? Big massive storm was coming, and we didn't even get a drop. Ugh.

Enough about the weather, and let's talk about stuff that happened tonight.

So one team, who professed to be two newbies and one who played occasionally gave me an answer sheet back that highlighted the Geeks Who Drink mascots. They asked if the black dude on the answer packets was new. And Yay! Diversity! They also wanted to know where the Asians and Latinos were on the sheets. Well, I can safely say that I've been working for Geeks Who Drink for 4 years now, and played for close to 2 before that, and the “black dude” in question has always been a part of the marketing from what I can remember. I'm pretty sure he has aways been in the banner on the Geeks Who Drink website as well. And though the pictures on the quiz packets have changed once or twice, I think that the current image has been used for quite some time. So nope. Not new. We roll with diversity. Also, if you look at said banner on th web site, the girl on the right does seem a bit on the brown side. She might even be latina. You be the judge.

Can I just state right here that I just don't “get” Cake? I mean, cake is yummy and tasty and all, but I'm talking about the band Cake. So many people I know love Cake. They dig all their songs, but me: Meh. Don't care for a single one their songs. In fact, I actually stopped using Pandora because of Cake. Pandora kept trying to convince me to like Cake. Pandora constantly fed me doses of Cake. And every time it would come on I would give it a thumbs down. But then 7 or 8 songs later, BOOM, more Cake. Then I'd thumbs down that shit too. And then later on ANOTHER Cake song. Often they were songs that I'd thumbs downed a few days prior. Seriously, it was getting crazy with the number of songs by Cake were being pushed on me. And for the record, I was listening to a station that was for stuff like, The Cure and The Smiths. What the fuck, Pandora? Your algorithm is broken. I eventually just stopped using it. Fuck Cake.

Have a great week guys, be safe and we'll see you next time.

A few things that came up at Quiz tonight have me questioning my faith in this planet. We lost Robin Williams yesterday and that's rough, but instead of getting into that, I'll get into the other things Quiz related that make me lose faith in this planet.

What does it take to be famous in this day and age? Not much apparently. What does it take to a make a zillion dollars? Be famous for not much, and put out a coffee table book exploiting your narcissistic tendencies. I think I lost all faith in humanity when I learned at Quiz tonight that Kim Kardashian was putting out a book.....OF SELFIES. Are you kidding me? Now, it's not the fact that she's putting out this book that makes me lose faith in humanity. It's the fact that millions of people will buy this crap, and make her zillions of dollars because she is enough of a narcissist that she has taken enough pictures of herself on her cell phone to fill a coffee table book. What kind of world are we living in?

For starters we're now living in a world without Robin Williams. And that sucks. We lose the ones that have all the talent, and the Kim Kardashians and the Paris Hiltons of the world live on. I hate this planet.

We also learned that the Michael Bay crapfest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie dethroned Guardians of the Galaxy at the box office. This tells me that people still line up in droves to see the latest explod-a-thon/ruination of a beloved franchise that Michael Bay shits onto the big screen. All I heard all weekend on my facebook was comments from friends as well as articles taking about how shitty this movie was. These are the same people that went to all the Transformers movies and then reported back on how much they hated them. Here is my message to all you people: STOP FEEDING THE TROLL. He only makes these shitty films because he knows that you all are stupid enough to go watch them no matter what. You'll bitch and moan about how horrible the film was and how much of a hack Michael Bay is all the way home and for the next few weeks. And then when he announces what new cherished franchise he's going to take a steaming dump on next, you all salivate and can't wait to see it. And the cycle repeats itself. Do you see the disconnect there? I'm wondering if he has some kind of memory wiping device that makes people forget what a hack he is. I think from now on, I'm going to stop calling him a hack, because I think I've figured it out as I write this blog. MICHAEL BAY IS THE MSG OF HOLLYWOOD! Yeah, you watch his films and you feel so full of his shit that you swear you'll never eat another bite. And then BOOM! An hour later you are looking around the internet looking for news on any new project he might be working on because you can't wait to see it! I am a motherfucking genius! I have cracked the code!

So a crap fest like TMNT dethrones a movie that people absolutely LOVED and still are talking about. I hate this planet.

Lastly, I wish to point out that I had never heard the Marianne Faithful/Mick Jagger story before. Legend has it (incorrectly) that during a police raid, police found Mick Jagger eating a Mars bar out of Marianne Faithful's vagina. Not only did I find out that this story was a thing tonight, but I simultaneously found out it wasn't true. But honestly, how do rumours like that get started anyway? That's the real story in all this. How was jealous enough of their tryst that a rumour like that gest started?

Anyway, have a great week gang, and I'll see you all next week!

Every now and then a Quizmaster gets fed up with the cliched team names that are over used and really not very funny at all.  And sometimes that fed up Quizmaster will do a verbal tear down on that team.  On extremely rare occasions, that Quizmaster will tear down a shitty team name that happens to belong to the lady friends of a local biker gang, who were playing with them at the other end of the table.  OOPS.  Thankfully I made it out of Quiz alive.
The team in question went with the old chestnut, “I Wish This Microphone Was A Penis”.  I decided to comment that it was a rather amazing coincidence considering that their mom was currently under my table giving ME a mic check.  There was a chorus of gasps and oooooos.  It wasn't until later that I realized that this was the table of bikers and lady friends.  Thankfully they let me live.
We talked a bit about the Three Stooges.  I've got to admit. I'm not a fan of the Three Stooges.  I never found them that amusing.  I know, it's weird.  It's not even that I am not a fan of slapstick, because I am.  In fact from that era I was a huge fan of Laurel & Hardy.  So I'm really not sure what the deal is.  I would take Laurel & Hardy over the Stooges any day.  But trumping them all in my eyes is The Marx Brothers.  Comedy supreme.  Probably because they were accomplished musicians, and each Marx Brother had a specific form of comedy that they excelled in.  With the Marx Brothers you got puns and clown/pantomime.  You got mimicry and double entendre.  And oh, the clever wordplay!  With the Stooges, you got eye pokes, slaps and funny voices.  Not much else.  Maybe that's what it was that soured me on them.
And let's talk about accents.  Some people should simply not affect an accent for a movie role.  Keven Costner is one of them.  Holy fuck his English accent was the drizzling shits.  I think when he did Robin Hood:  Prince of Thieves, someone must have pulled him aside a day or two into filming and just said, “Stop.  Just.  Fucking.  Stop.”  Because if you'll notice, there's an accent in there but only VERY briefly, and then the rest of the movie it's like either someone told him to stop it, or that he realized that his accent was shite, and decided to just quit it.  Maybe we'll never know.  But I could care less.  I don't care for him anyway.  His acting is as bad as his English accent in my opinion.
See you all next week where I'll try to make fun of the teamname of a table full of nuns! Someone get me  team full of nuns!
