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.

You all never cease to amaze me. Every time we have any sort of round that involves books (I refuse to use the word literature here) you all crash and burn in a fiery heap. Except apparenty when Twilight is involved. Seriously, you guys? TWILIGHT?!? All I can do is cling to the belief that you all know The Catcher In The Rye inside out and back and forth and were only able to identify the passages from Twilight because you knew with certainty that they weren't from Catcher In The Rye. But I must say that the ghost of J.D. Salinger is probably spinning like a top to have been included in a round that coexisted with the steaming pile of shit known as Twilight. For shame.

But seriously, all told, I'm not a fan of Catcher in the Rye in the least. I read it when I was an angsty teen and really didn't think it was the major work it was hyped as being. I found Holden Caufield to be fucking annoying. Yup. I said it. I didn't get anything out of the book and it sure as hell didn't “speak to me.” If anything I got WAY more out of the book Generation X by Douglas Coupland. THAT book did more for me than any other at that time in my life. It defintely did a lot to prepare me for the bullshit that was heaped upon my by society in the precious few years from when I'd first picked up the book.

Ok, enough ranting about angsty things. I'm sick as a dog and need to pull out all the stops if I'm going to get my voice back, cause it's seriously fucked.

I'll bid you all a good week. We'll see eachother next time!

STAR TREK. Nuff said, right? It's one of those theme quizzes that we to date have not tackled. Well, now we are. Start watching all the things because this one is going to cover a LOT of ground. TOS, TNG, DS9. All the shows. All the movies except for those piles of shit that J.J. Abrams put out there.

Have you ever heard music played on a Zeusaphone? I have and it is badass. What's a Zeusaphone? It's a musical instrument involving TESLA COILS! And HIGH VOLTAGES! It's like using lightning to create music. It's something that you have to experience to believe. I can only imagine what it would be like to play one of those suckers. But I'll tell you one thing. If I ever had a chance to play one, I'd totally jump all over that. Check out some videos on youtube. DO IT!

We had a round about spinoffs as well tonight. Having gown up in the 70's and 80's it seemes like every popular sitcom I watched ended up spinning off into other sitcoms. Jeffersons, Maude, Rhoda, Family Matters, Laverne & Shirley, Good Times. All spin offs. And all geat spinoffs that were successful in their own rights. Obviously there were shitty spinoffs too. The first one that springs to mind is Joey. That spinoff of Friends barely lasted a seaon, if I recall correctly. Or what about the Ropers, which was the first spinoff of Three's Company. The Ropers were funny for the few mintues of every episode they were highlighted. But a whole show around them was a massive failure. They just couldn't sustain what was funny about them for an entire episode The other spinoff Three's A Crowd didn't do much better either. Jack got married and was in constant conflict with his new father in law. Thankfully that one eventually put out of its misery. It was a far cry from the success of Three's Company, that's for sure. Or does everyone remember That 80's Show? Exactly. Not sure how long that one went, but it was definitely less than a season. And man did that one suck.

I want to remind everyone that we're hosting our first Parks and Recreation quiz this SATURDAY. Go to the geeks who drink website for location and times.

Happy Mardi Gras! Happy Fat Tuesday! And man, was there a lot of reference to Mardi Gras tonight at quiz. I can honestly say I've never had much interest in this particular holiday. I've never wanted to party it up in New Orleans. Never saw much point to it all really. I could chalk it up to not being religious, but honestly, the religious aspect to this “holiday” is at best, a lame excuse for people to puke their way up and down Bourbon Street. It's all about getting shithammered so you can go to church the next day and get dirt put on your head and give up something for a few weeks. Am I right on this? Again, not religious so I'm kinda guessing here.

Let's talk about Saturday Night Live, shall we? So, SNL turned 40. And so did I, just 6 months ago. Yes, I'm older than SNL. Damn, that's rough. Though I question the timing of their special this past weekend. If memory serves, the debut of SNL was October of 1975. So shouldn't they have actually waited until the beginning of next season that would logically fall on a date sometime in mid-September? I mean, they're still mid-season. I know that it's just semantics, but it just felt like a weird time to put that show together. But I grew up watching the Eddie Murphy era. His characters sold that show to me, and I pretty much stayed with that show until the early 90's, ending with the Mike Myers era. After that I only peeked in on it periodically, but stopping to linger on the Tina Fey era. I'm sure every one of you has a specific “era” that you either grew up watching, or is your favourite.  It's probably the one show that unifies us culturally.  Be it Gen X-ers like me all the way down to whatever the hell you young punks call your generation. But no matter what era you love most happy birthday / anniversary to SNL.
