Good afternoon Highballers! A mighty fine short and sweet quiz we had last night. Thanks for joining us. I liked the looks of the epic stage setup, that we didn’t get to use at all. Bodes well for that wild Halloween party in a couple of days. Have you got your costume? I’m working at Lucy in Dusguise right now and it seemed today that every frat house in Austin realized they hadn’t gotten their shit together yet and descended upon our (picked over) store, demanding the “coolest shit we got”. Don’t be that person. I hope you’ve got something fun and creative and that I don’t have to help you come up with anything at all, cause I’m tapped. Anyways, quiz!

Like I said, a short and sweet 6 Rounder tonight to make way for some highfaluting fancy pants private party, so we trimmed the fat and gave you the good stuff. And John. Round One used Halloween to spell out your answers. Some of you need to check how you spell Halloween… Round Two described the perfect woman: pretty, lovely, stupid, witchy, windy, silly Barbie ho. Oh mama. Third we covered Halloween traditions like leaving out bread and water. (Is that like when I’m passed out drunk with pizza an H2O on my coffee table after quiz drinking? Cause then it’s always Austrian Halloween at my house!) Our Fourth Round was all about that classic monster master with the booming baritone, Mr. Vincent Price. Love that guy, and really love that Tim Burton short, “Vincent” we referenced. Your Visual cues were full of lying liars who tell lies. And we closed up shop discussing my grandmothers Vera and Clara’s hobby of quilting and the other most who the fuck cares topic, Pixar short film with feature film pairings. You guys were not so hot on the latter. 

 

Well that’s enough for this week, we’ll see you guys next week at 8PM, so remember to set your clocks forward tonight. (Note, don’t adjust your clocks.) See y’all then!

Last night at the Highball we had a quick and dirty, rough and rowdy quiz all about the 90’s and Zombies (actually it was quite calm). The only thing that could have made it better is if the cast of the undead Saved by the Bell or Baywatch moaned into the bar to order some of those delicious drinks being given out for FREE by Woodford Reserve. John Dubya said that the dead resurrecting drink made him stand on end and another quizzer also couldn’t stop raving about it.

The only wardrobe malfunction that happened tonight was the fact that JWS couldn’t seem to keep his clothes on. I was perfectly content as your resident Peggy Bundy (This is the 90’s… duh) with my sky high beehive red wig, and he couldn’t stop peeling off his muscles. I suppose you could say it “fits” the zombie theme, but I’m a halloweener at heart and that means I wear my costume til the end.

In other news, our quiz was ALL ABOUT ZOMBIES! AND THE 90’s!

We learned that nobody knows which Day/Dawn/Night of the Living Dead is which, nobody really cares about Bill Pullman, and World War Z was written by my favorite persons son.

All in all, Elian Gonzombies got all the way here on a haunted boat and won first place and a $100 giftcard while The Head Shrinkers were just on their heels pulling a second place win! It was a tight race all night.

Halloween is just around the corner (Friday) and I know The Highball is having some sort of extravaganza, so I recommend you be there in a costume or be incredibly square. Whatever your plans are for Halloween, please make them safe ones! We want to see your beautiful rotting faces back at the next quiz! Starting Guy Fawkes Day, regular Quiz will be at 8pm!

We Came. We Quizzed. We Kicked Its Ass. You guys! Y’all rock!  Thanks so much for coming to our first ever Ghostbuster quiz. I’m really proud of Austin having the healthiest numbers and that some of our peeps dressed up and/or brought props. And much of y’all’s stuff was HOMEMADE! None of that one-size-fits-all bullshit like the personal tent I rented John (poor baby got too hot and had to change and wouldn’t wear his proton pack the whole time… it’s called committing to the shtick JWS, ya sonuvabitch).

Lots of fun rounds today, focusing in on specific character’s eccentricities as well as the tech of our heroes, and Winston’s believe it or nots. Believe it or not, Winston was my favorite character when I was a kid. I don’t really know why. Maybe I was a Jesus freak like him. We also covered the soundtracks, because DUH! Some teams got sad scores on that one. C’mon guys. That’s the very first thing I would review. Loved all the nitpicking (incorrect) notes on the songs you left me though. We got y’all to name the little guys in our visual round, and then got site specific in round six. Instead of clips in round seven, we had lots of Ray Zalinsky, ahem, Stantz questions and the ashes of Dan Aykroyd’s career (yea, boo to you too). And of course we capped it off with some Ghosty randomness, including all the ways my best bud Vigo was NOT killed.

We had fun with our bonus IMDb game of listing not one, but two of the Busters filmographies. Mr. Murray and Aykroyd respectively. Some contentious moments but I think our winner was pretty clever. Especially with that My Girl 2 pull. At the end of it all many teams left covered in slime (or was that doughnut frosting?), but one team triangulated crossing their streams just right and pulled the win into their (homemade, non-light up) ghost trap. Congrats Gozarian Society! While your commitment to watching all of The Real Ghostbusters cartoon and reading through the comics might not have been necessary, you truly proved your superfandom yesterday!

Thanks again to all that came to play, and to QM Kavi and QM Alyssa for the assist during the show! We’ll see you folks around at regular quizzes and hopefully the odds will be ever in your favor for our next themed quiz…
