Cattivo in Lawrenceville 8 p.m. every Wednesday.
Louis (QM Pittburgh HappyHour )

Currently running quizzes at Cattivo in beautiful Lawrenceville! Come visit me every Wednesday at 8 p.m. as we share in trivial knowledge, beer, pizza, friendship, love and tears!

An expert in drinking culture, Quizmaster Pittsburgh HappyHour will introduce you to the drunken side of Pittsburgh, a variety of fantastic music and what it means to fall in love in post 9/11 society.

New week new venue motherfuckers! I'm a Library lover. Couldn't be happier to be here amidst all you wonderful people. The Library is really a great place! I'm not used to having so many enthusiastic quiz goers.  You guys seem to be more geek and less drink! I've really never met a group that gets almost every question correct. Dizammn.

 

I think the Library's food and drink special is one of the best in all the lands. Now that I am the new quiz-master though, you will all be required to drink more! The rules is the rules brothers and sisters.

 

I was so happy that ApollogettiX was back again tonight! I love me some great Christian parody songs! I don't know where they got that girl that sounded so much like Gwen Stefani though! That shit was for real impressive. Although that one was bad ass, I was particularly impressed to know that ApologetiX also has done a wonderful cover of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds! Check these lyrics, yo:

 

Picture yourself on the Mount called Olivet
You're standin' with Jesus ... a marvelous time
Then while you talk He begins to rise slowly -- and gives you His final goodbyes
Aeroplane flyers were seldomly seen down in Jerusalem then
Look for the Lord with the sun in your eyes and He's gone!
Lookee, in the sky, He's flyin'! REPEAT
Following that there appear on the mountain a couple of angels in garments so white
"Ye men of Galilee," they say, "please tell us how come you still stare at the sky?

 

I also can't believe that in all my time of doing pub quizzes we've never discussed Happy Gilmore! What a film! I don't know if the film just makes me think of my childhood or if it is really as awesome as I think it is. I think it is as awesome as I think it is, for sure. Also, I never would have guessed Adam Sandler would have gone on to lead such a lackluster career. After Happy Gilmore he went on to star in some dooseys like: "Zookeeper" "Click" and "Spanglish."

I'm not familiar with these works, and that's really a non-issue in terms of my day to day well being.

A special thanks to the wonderful staff of the Library tonight. Alicia and Gels, you guys are the greatest! As for the rest of you, I'll see you next week where beers and shots will be MANDATORY!

Ian Clemente (Ian Insect)

Growing up on the kind streets of Pittsburgh, Ian developed a love of sensible ephemera, accurate apocryhpa and sensual esoterica some time last year.  He's a late bloomer but a quick learner.  And a self-finisher.  Ian went to college (read: adult daycare) for four years and called it quits after scoring a couple BAs.  While everything he doesn't know can almost fit into the bottom of a pint glass, the areas of knowledge that it's not the best idea to taunt him about are pop music, 20th century literature, Florentine Renaissance art, German Romanticism, superstitious mysticism, and cats.  Some QMMFs do it for the fame, some for the money.  Ian does it for the love of the sport.  And cats.  Yeah, cats.  Real men love cats, but so does Ian.  Message him with beer suggestions!

I'm not sure what's wrose between memories or expectations, which one lets you down more when you compare it to a reality, that is to say, a shared perception that we can all agree exists.  Sorta rough territory to get into, but somehow each week we manage to find one answer for each question that we can all agree on.


But yeah, sometimes our memory fails us.  We wake up in the morning, ready for the quiz, sure we've retained the knowledge from all the prep we did all week, including falling asleep in front of the Mary Tyler Moore Show, trying out jiu-jitsu with a free groupon, burning a copy of Atlas Shrugged and polishing our Star Trek collectibles; y'know, preparing. But when the pressure of the quiz rests upon our shoulders and when the burden of alcohol constricts our brains, we lose the facts, we forget about the inferno that is Uranus and the mantlepiece that is the human body.  We forget which poisons do what, so we test out different poisons. And different positions.

And sometimes our memories are better than we remember. Ask David Byrne. That's why we all think the 86 Lakers were any good.  It's just nostalgia.  You'll all remember last night fondly, especially our soon-to-be-departed dears Stop Naming Nuts and our second place quasichamps Probably Last.

But really, what did you expect?

I think the worst feeling may be when you let yourself down with how you act, react or interact. What I've found helps here is drinking. And cheating.

You all impressed me so much tonight.  Not just with your knowledge that you wrote down on paper, but with your intrinsic knowledge of quizzical, trivial... umm... knowledge.  It's a huge treat to be with yinz every week and just sorta even overhear the bright gems popping out from conversation.  I always want to chime in or ask questions, but I feel a little embarrassed, like I'm eavesdropping, but anyway, just a little thank you.

(Still running 'round...)

I hope I'm not embarrassing by bringing it up, so I won't mention any names. Instead, I'm just going to talk about our top three teams, very tightly bound: Dane-y Tanner, Fluffy Kitties and Fred Dropped Dead (I assume this is some sorta of horse racing reference???). Those were the places in and out of order order as ordered. Great job keeping me in suspense, as we had a one point separation between two of the teams even!

(See the fool I'll be)

I don't want to discount or exclude the other teams who really gave their damnedest (did I spell that right?)!  And even bought me a drink(s)! What?! We had a full house and a fully engaged participatory constituent.  I consider myself grateful for not only that fact, but for the fact that we have so many regulars who come every week, somehow, with fresh and clear minds ready to tackle all angles... and corner... backs!!!  HA!  Is it football yet???

(Still running 'round!)
