I got a new tattoo this weekend, for free! I tipped the artist, of course, so I guess it cost me ten bucks, but I could have not tipped and it would have been completely free! That would have been uncool, though. I'm pretty stoked, because I've been wanting new ink for a long time. This one was a bit impulsive, just like the first one, so I guess I should break the pattern and, like, plan one for once. It, just, there's so many ideas right now! Aaagh!
Game of Bones: A Porn Parody changed their name just about every round to be a different parody each time. I have included all of their submissions for your judgement, along with my judgement, in parenthesis.
-Game Of Bones (ok, this is fun)
-Boinking Bad (nice, keeps the alliteration)
-How I F*cked Your Mother (works, but might be too literal… doggy?)
-Two and A Half Men: A Gay Porn Parody (lazy)
-The Cocking Dead (heh it rhymes)
-Big Bang Theory (ok now you're just phoning it in)
-The Statutory Life of Zack & Cody (redeemed, made me laugh!)
Quiz started off fast, with all teams doing well in round one, and a really strong Joker in round 2 by A Porn Parody. Porn is king, I guess, because they held the top spot all night. Everybody did pretty well on rounds 3 through 5, but it became apparent in round 6 that most of the teams don't focus on politics too much… or Doctor Who, based on round 7! I kid, but with a high score of four, that must have been a tough round. I don't really like Dr Who that much (sonic screw me, right?) so I'd have done terrible on this one. Anyways, Big Black Caulk was able to sneak into second after Round Six, pushing Wicked Underwear Bull Moose into third and Nick Foles-ian Dynamite right out of the money.
Yesterday was a hell of a day! First off, Apple had their keynote and announced the new iPhone! I'm stoked, because I've been using an iPhone 4 for three years. It's intensely aggravating using such an old phone, and the new one is going to feel like switching from a Toyota to a Ferrari. It's going to be interesting, thats for sure! I get to enjoy all these bells and whistles… I'm actually excited about Siri! Well, to have it, since I have no idea if I'll use it or not. A better camera! Oh man.
Since I'm a geek, here's the other interesting thing to happen yesterday: Destiny. I played all day before quiz, I got home and played after quiz, and I'm itching to play right now. I have a web page about it open in another tab. I downloaded the app -- it's impressive. I am always apprehensive about new game purchases, but after a few hours I'm very impressed with what I've seen so far. I'd like some more gun variety, since I'm a Borderlands fanatic, but otherwise it's something I quite like.
Recap: We started off strong this week, with four teams using their Joker in Round 2. 1-800-DOCTORB, What Happens In Vegas Ends Up On TMZ, and Swamp Donkeys jumped to the lead. You can't let your guard down at Quiz! "Double Oh" Dicks and Still Aimless. Sorry. ended up battling each other for the outlier positions, and a wisely held-in-reserve Joker in Round 8 was all it took to propel Still Aimless into 3rd place.
Don't forget about the Seinfeld Theme Quiz next week!
I updated my music selection this week! I try to change up the songs I play during quiz about every two months, so I spent about an hour today picking out my next selection of Quiz music. It's interesting, because I have a huge range of musical tastes, and trying to pick ones that A) I enjoy, B) are awesome, and C) are palatable for the majority, is a bit of a tricky process, because a lot of people don't really enjoy the kind of stuff I listen to on the regular. This go through I have a couple unique songs, but the one that I played last night during Round 8 was called "Vodka Inferno" by a band named Diablo Swing Orchestra. They specialize in Operatic Metal, which is metal with trained classical vocalists. Very interesting and fun! I also recommend their song "Lucy Fears The Morning Star". It's so awesome!
100% Jesse Free, Something About Baked Goods, and Horses & Ecstacy all Jokered in Round 2, and held down the top three through the second scoring break. Scores were really close all through Quiz, and it came down to Random Knowledge to shake things up a bit, and shake things up it did. Jennifer Lawrence's iCloud Password vaulted to first, and California Gives Me A Redwood was able to score a second place tie with 100% Jesse Free. After bonus questions were asked and the dust settled, 100% snagged 2nd. Nicely done, everyone!
I will see you guys next week! Make sure to sign up for the email bonus question, because I'm giving away a Geeks Who Drink pint glass next time!
