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.

The cold weather is here and this Canadian can't be happier! Deal with it folks, because Coldpocalypse 2014 has finally arrived. Ok, so I made up Coldpocalypse, but give it time, some TV station here in San Antonio will probably take that term and hit wall to wall coverage on your airwaves with......IT'S COLD OUTSIDE. Yup. Precious airtime being spent to let the viewer know that it's cold outside. 0% chance of snow (because San Antonio) but gosh darn it, it's cold outside and we need to inform the public for hours at a stretch. Don't believe me? I worked in television in San Antonio for close to a decade. Trust me. It has happened. And don't get me started on how they freak out if there's a snowflake spotted within 100 miles of San Antonio. Sheesh. Know what we call this weather in my little patch of Canada? Mid September. Get over it.

So Beanie Babies came up in the Quiz tonight. Remember that crock of shit? The buying frenzy? The mad craze in trying to get every single one of them? The promise that these collectables will be what you end up paying off your house with 20 years down the road because they'll go up just that high in value? Yeah. Big crock of shit on that. I never bought into that “craze”. I hope you didn't either, because a quick look at ebay tells me that they're not worth shit. Yes, I did some “research” into Beanie Babies after Quiz. Why? So you don't have to. You're welcome! All I've seen is a lot of bean bags beings sold for $10. Some a little more. Some a little less. I've seen lots of 60 Beanie Babies being sold for $40. Then I've seen the apparent “crown jewel” of Beanie Babies: The Princess Diana purple bear.. I've seen that one on Ebay for anything from $15 to $300,000. Yup. $300,000. Unless it's signed by Diana herself (which is won't because it's a memorial bear), I wouldn't give you $5 for it. But I guess there are folks out there clinging to the dream that someday, that Beanie Baby investment will pay off huge. Keep dreaming, folks.

I blame the media on that too.  The media hyped those stupid bean bags as the biggest thing since EVAR.  They generated the frenzy.  The people that bought into the hype are fools.

Yup I just wrote a blog about Beanie Babies. What. The. Hell?

Slang is one of the great parts of the English language. If curse words are the spices of the language, slang would be the garnish. Being from Canada, I'm especially fond of British slang since I got exposed to so much of it as a kid. Partly from the reruns of British comedies on television and partly from so much of my own family being British, and the fact that my great grandparents had only moved to Canada as recently as the early 1920's. Hell, some of those slang terms in tonight's round 3 are ones that I use from time to time. Aside from that, I was familiar with most of the rest of them anyway. It was a pretty cool round overall.

Round 2 gave you all a bit of trouble. I can't say I blame you, since someof those rock covers were downright painful to listen to. Some of those bands need to be ashamed of themselves!

We found out tonight that the Koreans must LOVE their kimchi. Why, I have no fucking idea. If you don't know what it is, it's essentially cabbage that's been put in a jar with spices, buried in the ground for several months, and allowed to ferment. Yup. Sounds tasty, huh? Yeah well, the koreans love that stuff so much that they tried to make a less horrid smelling version of it so that they could feed it to astronauts in space. No thanks. Hell, what the Koreans SHOULD to is weaponize that shit. Drop a bomb of kimchi on any town and they'd be begging to surrender. They could probably take over the entire planet with that brand of warfare. Nobody tell Dennis Rodman. He'll go tell his buddy Kim Jong-Un.

See you all next week.

So, we had a special guest tonight. Kate was at the ol' pub quiz to learn the fine craft of Quizmastering. She's being trained to be a sub for the time being. You know, just in case one of us goes down with a case of Ebola, or the Zombie Apocalypse happens and I or another Quizmaster gets taken out in the first wave. That way the Quiz can still go on, provided there's any Quizzers still alive. But fret not my lovelies, I'm not going anyway, and Kate is not replacing me. I'm like that psycho ex-girlfriend that just won't go away. I'll be calling you and hanging up, and I'll park my car outside your house for hours on end. You know. Same as always. Nothing changes.

There were some shocked expressions when it was revealed that Bill Cosby sang one of the tracks on our Rolling Stones – Satisfaction round 7. It's true. Mr. Jello Pudding recorded a version of Satisfaction. I uncovered that little gem while one of our round writers was looking for a few more cover versions of the song to finish out this round and sent it his way. Very pleased to see that it made the final cut. While finding that version of Satisfaction, I also found a cover of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Also by Bill Cosby. Enjoy! But wait! There's MORE! He actually recorded close to a dozen music albums spanning from the late 60's to just a few years ago. In fact, he even recorded TWO albums with Quincy Jones. So feel free to browse the youtubes and check out some more. Or don't. That's cool. No Pudding Pops for you though.

So have a great week gang. I'll be back in the saddle next week! Thanks to Kate for holding the fort for the majority of Quiz. Till next week!
