Hiya people! Wow, last night was fun, and 40 damn teams Holy Tamale Balls! It was our first official show back in the new Highball and a glorious return to action it was! Mainly 'cause of our awesome new bestie, Hannah Hart and her legion of fans. Hannah, you're hired. No, but really, that amazing lady jumped right into it and was hosting and SCOREKEEPING for us. Totally unexpected she'd be that involved and helpful and lovely and complimentary and touchy feely and I am in love. I was having one heckuva crummy day until she started leaning on me and using me as a prop for her stories. Just the best. Harto sure set a high standard for any future guest QMs! Also fun was John's new (old) Powerpoint presentation. Yay reading (just like you should read Hannah's book, My Drunk Kitchen, The Book!)! I hope next week he can work in some animations to the slides. That always makes 'em better, right? But the quiz, yes, the quiz.

You guys licked Round One. Cause it was stamps and shit, get it? Round Two was overrated. Or at least the bands were. Ozzy Nelson felt a great disturbance in the KISS force with JWS' disparaging remarks. You better watch your ass when Oz-man is back in town John! Round Three proved how fucking old Larry King is. I appreciate the team that just answered “Yes” for every “Was he alive when...” Nice strategy. It got you three points. Fourth was our news roundup, which the mention of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge led to Hannah having to do her own post show. And it was glorious. Round Five helped us project some artful dicks on the Highball screen. So that's been properly broken in now too.

In Round Six we discussed some great performers from across the pond that have come here to yokel it up as best they can. I'll award Stephen Moyer worst accent and Kelly MacDonald best. Round Seven was full of hilarious techno-babbledy-babble spacey TV and movie shows. I still can't believe a team knew that
Dude, Where's My Car? clip. Then we finally closed it out with the age old question, Transformer or gay Porn Luminary. You guys were aces on that one, go figure. Also, reading those answers made me wonder: Does Trasformers Porn exist? Welllll...

Thank you all so much again for playing quiz last night, and HUGE thanks again to Hannah Hart (and
QM Kavi) for being totally awesome and for helping out with that massive team count. Highball is back baby! See y'all next week!

HELLO AGAIN FRIENDS! Holy-moly what a great (unofficial) first night back! So amazing to see so many familiar faces both quizzer and staff and co-host alike in our new shiny digs! Damn, that place is sexy, eh? John and I were beside ourselves last night, and for how long it took to birth this baby, last night seemed to rush up on us (or me at least). Wonderful competition last night, great prizes given out (I'd take a free movie ticket over a free beer any day, right?!), and a glorious return of the IMDb game to boot! Fuckin' Gothika*! Thanks for sticking through some minor tech hiccups and John's booming ass voice. Forgot how much he likes to yell (didn't forget about the rambling though...). But what was our quiz all about?

Round One hit a little close to home, but I loved the minor jump in weight differential between a bowling ball and Nadia Comaneci (“coma”-NEECH, John!). Round Two's musicians were gabbing and Round Three speedily paid tribute to our recent tragic celebrity loss. Hollywood's knuckles are a little less hairy. Then we kicked you while you were down and gave you a goddamn, honest to goodness Nickelback Round. You may have been happy the average score for the round was a six, but truly you should be disgusted with yourselves. I woulda guessed Tim Horton's too though. Then you guys squeaked out some good scores as you scurried for the mouse movie names in Round Five. What, no love for this Nathan Lane classic

Round Six took us around the world to places we don't wanna be. Especially where the mudslides are happening: Applebee's. ::shudder:: Round Seven was our Filmic Versions Of Plays Round, and while Sharknado did not start as a play, I am now inspired to get working on a musical adaptation. Maybe we could crib some tunes from metal gods Great White or how about the ditty “Maxwell's Silver Hammerhead” We're sitting on a goldmine here. Finally we closed out with some Pokemon, celebrity sex tapes, and Ben & Jerry's ice cream. Sounds like a normal Wednesday for most of us, eh?

Love, love, love being back and seeing all of your “beautiful” faces! We'll be back in a more official capacity next week, with SPECIAL YOUTUBE GUESTSTAR!  Be there. She's gonna “love” us.

Man, it's really over. It's still not really sinking in for me that we're not quizzing at The Highball anymore, but I'm sure once Wednesday gets here and I have nothing to do... I'll be crying in a fetal position, playing some shitty facebook app trivia trying to get my fix. But really, it's been a heck of a good time these past two and three quarters years!

I wasn't a part of the very first quiz at the Highball. John got the official hosting gig before me. But after the great turn out, and from what I hear some minor flailing, of the first show, I was brought on to assist. John and I did not know each other before this gig. We literally met on the Highball stage, so it's somewhat amazing that this partnership/friendship has worked out as well as it has. I seriously couldn't ask for a better, more creative, and open co-host than him. We had unknowingly been playing on rival teams at Fado's way back when GWD was first introduced to Austin. Both of us built a love for quizzing back then; and I suspect a sense of “I-could-do-this” attitude too.

In the time that I've been hosting this quiz I've witnessed some incredible karaoke/dancing, girls air “milking” one another, a dude yanking his undies out of his pants, a group of grown men wearing adult diapers outside their clothes, a full on lightsaber duel, the other side of a “Sexy Back” competition, some truly weird hidden talents, our representing teams win three of the four possible prizes at Geek Bowl (proud parents moment), and tonight, a staff member pwning everyone in an especially epic cup toss game. During our themed quizzes I've portrayed a number of characters, including: Theodore Donald “Donny” Kerabatsos, a fever dream Nihilist (junk on display), Cosmo Kramer, Green Man (junk on display, again), and Roger Sterling. I guess I couldn't think of good Bill Murray or Simpsons costumes.

The amount of friends, acquaintances, and people who “know me from somewhere” that I've gained from doing this little show is huge. It's also been an honor to be the meeting point for some people, or the place to kick off birthday celebrations, or (especially) being the birth place of new friendships when we paired together strangers. It's going to be weird not seeing the same faces on a weekly basis. Or have dumb things I say put in an echo effect (is there an app for that?). Or being able to talk shit to people and get away with it (where else will I be able to call a lady a word that rhymes with punt and begins with c, and be applauded for it?!).

John and I will be involved with Geek Bowl VII (which you should totally register for as a Highball team!) in some form or fashion. We'll also be hosting the occasional Action Pack/Alamo show, so keep an eye out for us there. Truly, it's been a great experience hosting this quiz, and I look forward to many more crazy fun times at Highball 2.0! See ya 'round geeks!
