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'm more of a Star Wars guy than a Star Trek guy. I've always found that people I meet always fall into one of the two camps. Few (if any) like them equally. I loved Star Wars when I was growing up. And then one day, I was taken to the movies to see Star Trek: The Motion Picture. Yes, I'm that old. Shut up. I had never heard of Star Trek before but was taken to see this movie for reasons unknown. Maybe it was a nostalgia thing for the adults, I'm not sure. But there I was at the age of probably 6, and I WAS BORED. So bored. The bad guy was only seen sparingly and there was no action at all until the very end. Just a lot of talking. This as so NOT Star Wars. Such a huge letdown to my young brain.

Eventually, Star Trek II came out and for some reason I watched that one too. I'll admit it. I really liked that one. It's probably my favourite Star Trek movie. But that's really no surprise, seeing as it's the movie most Trekkies list as their favourite. I was captivated by Mr. Ricardo Montalban. So evil. So smart. Such a badass. So justified in his actions in his own mind, and kinda sorta in my mind too. And that's the mark of a great villain, isn't it? To feel that your actions are fair and true and just? It wasn't until many years later that I watched the Star Trek episode “Space Seed”. My mind was blown because I had no idea that there was an episode that Star Trek II was a sequel of sorts to. The episode, was ok. I definitely liked Star Trek II better, but it led me to watch Kahn again, and holy crap it all mad so much more sense that time around. I was after all still pretty young when Star Trek II came out and I saw it for the first time.

Paulina has sat me down and we've been watching all the Original series episodes. I've seen a good chunk of them previously, but I'm definitely enjoying watching them.

But it's not Star Wars.

And speaking of Star Wars:

Let The Wookie Win is coming soon! That's right, our tribute to the Original Trilogy, and the only trilogy that matters is coming up on May 4th. Get to watching and join us at the Firehouse Pub over on Walzem at 7pm. Wear your coolest costumes. Come as a terribly low-rent C3PO, and you may even win some shit.

Last thing. WE DID IT. Lion and Rose Broadway won the San Antonio Current's Best of for Best Trivia Night. Thanks for voting (if you voted). If you didn't vote, fuck you we won anyway!

See you next week.

I've said before that I'm a big fan of cover versions PROVIDED that there's a new approach with the cover and it's not simply a spot on impersonation of the original. Tonight we saw the exception to my rule with our round 2. Holy crap. Counting Crows did their thing to eight popular songs to the point that they were essentially unrecognizable when compared to the original. And it wasn't pretty. In fact it was horrible. The music that is, not the round itself. When I heard what they did to Friday I'm In Love I wanted to line all the members of Counting Crows up against the wall and kick them all in the nuts repeatedly until they promised to never perform in public ever again. Either that or force them to listen to their own shitty music until they beg me to stop. That was the worst.

I was shocked to see that so many of you didn't know the TV show Webster. I mean, I watched it during the show's first run, but we all know that I'm old. Some were probably wondering, “what's Webster?” Allow me to explain...

Once upon a time, there was a tv show called Diff'rent Strokes (yes, that's how it was spelled) and on that show was a kid named Gary Coleman who was the breakout star of that show. Now Gary played Arnold, who was a young kid. Gary however was actually 10 playing what I imagine was 5 or 6. Gary as we all know had some disease that stunted his growth, so he was really damn short. Not a midget mind you, or a dwarf, but just really short. Maybe he WAS a midget or dwarf. I don't know. I don't know the parameters on that classification.

Anyway, the show EXPLODED and was the hottest thing out there. It was ratings gold for NBC. People were yelling that catch phrase “Whatcho talkin' 'bout Willis?” all the damn time. Eventually the people at ABC decided they needed in on that action. So somewhere a studio exec demanded that another short, cute, adorable black kid be found. And they found him in commercial actor Emmanuel Lewis. He was short. He was cute. He was black and he was older than the role he was tapped to play. Just like Gary Coleman. By this time Diff'rent Strokes was on the way out. Arnold was getting older. The other two kids on the show were already bound for their first of many stints in rehab, so I guess it was a good opportunity to ride that show's coattails on to greatness. And it did. I guess.

Interesting end to this story is that in 1985 (2 seasons after ABC started airing Webster) ABC bought the rights to Diff'rent Strokes because it was being cancelled by NBC. So both shows were actually on the air for one season. AND THEY NEVER DID A CROSSOVER EPISODE? What. The. Fuck. Talk about missed opportunities.

That's it for this week. Catch you all next week!

What costs more, 17 barrels of crude oil, or one gallon of printer ink? I haven't done the math, but something tells me it's the ink. What the hell, man! The price of ink is downright stupid. It's almost cheaper to replace a printer every time it runs out of ink than to just buy more ink. At least with the printer purchase you get your ink cartridge included in the price of that printer. And the cost of said printer is only slightly more expensive than just buying ink. I'll tell you, it's one hell of a good scam if you ask me! Somewhere the CEO of HP is laughing his ass off because we have bought into this scam. We pay through the nose for these cartridges that last like, a minute or 3 copies, whichever comes first. Then back we go to line their pockets once again.

The last thing I'd ever want to do is give Facebook money on purpose. However, if I had tons of money to burn, I would totally spend some serious money at $15 a pop to send direct messages to celebs. If I saw a shitty Russell Crowe movie, I would just plunk down my $15 just to direct message him in order to say, “hey jackass, I can't get my 2hours back for that shit show movie of yours, how about giving me my $12 bucks back? And yes I realize I spent $15 to make this request, but fuck you anyway.” Or how about direct messaging Tony Romo every time he fucked up on the field. Hell, you'd need some serious cash just to get through the pre-season! But it would be fun.

Know what else is fun? Star Wars! And I'm talking about the OG Trilogy. Not that prequel crap. Think you know enough about those films to try and win some cash?

And just as I'm wrapping this up, I'm hearing reports that The Ultimate Warrior has died.  I'm stunned and need to do something.....I just don't know what.
