“Hey Everybody!” How's it going Highballers? I couldn;t excatly tell how many of of our players last night were Fantastical or Regular folk, but either way it was great to have y'all. Yes, Hurricane Fantastic Fest has hit us hard but we're almost through it. Man, my homestead has become Procrastination Station when I'm actually here, so I'm glad I'm knocking this blog out before sleepytimes sets in. I think tomorrow will be my longest day of the fest, and probably on the shortest amount of sleep. That's how you keep from getting sick right? Anyways. Lets recap our shortened quiz shortly!

Round One was actually appropro since them temps have actually dropped the past couple of days so it actually feels like a Texas A-U-T-U-M-N. A-W-E-S-O-M-E! Round Two had some parent jams, and I don't mean Michael Bolton. Third, we dished up a quick order of guitar gods and had one homie miss the deadline. Even though he was at the FRONT friggin table. Jeez dude. Then we covered current affairs including the once again relevant (?) Tea Leoni. Okay, we've all been conditioned on how to pronounce her name, but take a step back and just pronounce that shit the way it looks. Makes me think of a nice beverage and Jean Reno declaring himself. (I need to sleeeeep.) Visually we gave you some steaming piles of movies and then we flushed it out with our final Random Round. It helped remind us Proctologists are just feeling their way around while Radiologists are getting the full(screen) picture.

Good times, great oldies again pals. We're back again next week with (possibly) fewer sweaty cineastes and (hopefully) more parking spaces. We'll see ya then chums!

High Highball! You guys were pretty fun last night. I mean it took a few drinks to get ya there it seems, but fun all the same. We were John W Smith-less last night, but the mighty Carlos stepped in to be your scorekeeper while I got handed the reigns of this boozy beast. I had fun hosting and using that blasted Powerpoint remote. What was the quiz all about tho?

Well, the night started out low as molasses but then we moved on to a Rockin' Round Two, and I Do mean “round”, hehehe, ugh. Third up we defined the un-defineable. I might be bagstiv myself. Well, pretty much everyday I'm bagstiv. It makes me kinda sad, hope I don't get too much kummerspeck. Our Fourth Round featured KITTIES and me playing song selections from
Cats and pissing off the bar staff. Also, fuck off Sanrio. The Visual Round axed you to name some cutting movies and tv shows. You chopped down that mighty round, and your points were definitely no hatchet job. Okay, I'll stop.

Sixthly we had a lovely Before and After Round, featuring some of my favorite comedian and most loathed musicians. Some great wrong guesses though including Billy Crystal Method, Chris Elliot Smith, and Tina Feist. Round Seven featured movies and their soundtracks. Of course we balance the great with the god awful always to keep your excitement in check. And finally we closed out the night with Ms. Scarlett and Mrs. Peacock, Harry Truman, A.A. And Mississippi TWICE! And no, the Oscar iss not holding his giant dong, ya weirdo.

Thanks again for joining us! JWS will be back next week and we WILL be quizzing in the midst of the Fantastic Fest madness. Come join us and beat other players from out of town/the country!

I'll just say it. I am a fan of Keanu Reeves. I think the guy gets a bad rap quite undeservedly. He's been in the business for many years and has always been pretty solid in my opinion. Sure, you couold accuse his acting style as being wooden, emotionless, vacant. And maybe you've got something there. But I think he makes it work.

Last night, just running down the list of awesome films he's been in: The Matrix, Point Break, The Devil's Advocate, Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure, Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (someone said that, right?!), Speed, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Constantine, and the list goes on. It just goes to show how long he has been ingrained in our pop culture. Giving us great characters, one after another. In the past ten years or so he's done more independent movies that are pretty great too, Thumbsucker, Street Kings, A Scanner Darkly, and 47 Ronin are all worthwhile. This Lebanese born badass that's half English/half Hawaiian-American deserves your respect.

His film career speaks for itself, but he's also overcome dyslexia and dropping out of high school. Sure, everyone laughs at the Sad Keanu meme. But motherfucker has had some heavy shit happen in his life. His father was absent by the time he was three, later in life he and his girlfriend had a stillborn child, and shortly after their breakup had ensued she died in a horrific car crash. And still he gives so much to others. He's donated much of his money to charities including PETA (I'll give him a pass on that, since they're a bit crazy these days.), the SickKids Foundation, Stand Up To Cancer, and many others, as well as spending $5 mil.+ on helping hi sister with her leukemia treatments. It's also storied that he threw the creative and tech crew for the Matrix sequels a major portion of his back-end deal money. Totaling around $75 mil., which meant about $1mil per crew member. What. A. Guy.

So if Keanu ever released a song parody of Taylor Swift (with his rock band Dogstar), I'd listen to it. If he took inspiration from his role in The Replacements and joined a football team, say the Minnesota Vikings or Seattle Seahawks or Chicago Bears, I'd root for him. If he documented canoeing the Colorado River all the way to where it dumps into the Gulf of California, I'd track it. If he ever tried his hand at opera, I'd, uh, well I might pass on that. But if he ever tried to sell me phone service, I'd subscribe. The man is awesome. And I hope to meet him at Fantastic Fest.
