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 left-handed. It's true. I'm an odd ball. I'm of the 10% of the world's population that is left-handed. I get it from my great grandfather, I think. He was left-handed. Technically though he was ambidexterious. But that's only because back in his day, being left-handed was “of the devil” and they attempted to beat the left-handedness out of him. Ah, the good ol' days. I'm one of the few in my family that is left-handed. I just wish more of the world was built with lefties in mind.

Ever try to use a can opener with your left hand? Sucks doesnt' it. Or how about that mouse you use every day at your computer? That's really tough to do even after you go through the bother of reconfiguring the buttons on it. So what's a lefty to do in a world like this? Unfortunately you need to adapt, and that typically means learn to do shit with your right hand.

Over the course of my life, I've learned to do a lot of things with my right hand. Typically anything that involves strength. In that sense my right has become dominant. If I'm throwing a ball, or batting, or golfing or shoveling. All done with my right doing most of the work. In school when I was a kid, and I had to cut paper, man that was a nightmare. There was only ever like, one pair of left handed scissors. So I had to learn how to use scissors with my right, which I now do to this day. They even had “training scissors” with four holes. Two for your fingers and two for the teacher's fingers and she'd cut the paper while you essentially go through the motions.

Dexterous tasks like using a fork, or writing, is all with my left. But now that I think about it, there's not much else that I actually do with my left other than write or eat. I guess in the modern era, they don't beat it out of you, they just force you to use your right instead in the hopes that you just stop. Assimilation! You WILL be one of us!

It's weird when a member of a team that enjoys giving me shit about stuff in a fun sort of way is missing at quiz. But what's funny is when the rest of that team bands together to pick up the slack and try and give you shit in the manner of the missing teammate. You did good gang. Way to give me shit while managing to take funny jabs at your missing teammate. It's all in good fun, and I love what you all bring to quiz.

So, quick announcement before we take off. Chances are that we won't have quiz next Tuesday. Lion and Rose is celebrating their 10th anniversary, so your humble Quizmaster will be given the night off. I don't have it confirmed yet, but it looks like that's what is going to happen. But we'll be back again in two weeks. So make sure you are on the email list, or are on the facebook page that I have set up for the quiz at Lion and Rose – Broadway. You'll find the link below. It's a great way to find out about things like cancellations and such.

Have a great week gang!

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.
