I like hats, the artist Poe, and anything nerdy.  My sole aspiration in life is to be Tom Cruise, but better.

Here is an excerpt from my Wikipedia page:

"Evan Boston was born a poor sharecropper's son in Upper Manhattan.  So dire was his family's poverty that young Evan was forced to subsist on soy sauce and steamed fingernail clippings.  His life was forever changed when he pressed his soy-sauce-bespattered face to the glass of a public house wherein a Geeks Who Drink pub quiz was being held.  Evan knew then what his life's work would be from that moment on.  He sold his father's prize possession, a tortoiseshell comb, to pay for tuition for Quizmasters' Academy.  After years of being bullied and shunned by the rich students and Samoans, Evan finally proved his worth by graduating 4th in his Quizmaster's class, for which he was presented an Applebee's gift card.  He has yet to use it."

For those of you who missed it, I tried to sabotage the first place team by playing sub-par covers of alternative 90's songs, but it didn't work.  They still managed to defend their title, regardless of the musical bludgeoning I administered.  I even tried to give away the CD from which the songs came (entitled Punk Goes 90's Vol. 2), and then the winner of that prize tried to give it back.

No can-do.  It doesn't work that way, man.  The curse must be transferred willingly.  I'm FREE now!  And I do not envy you the burden you must now carry.

I mean, perhaps Volume 1 of Punk Goes 90's was a little more impressive.  And sure, it was interesting hearing heavier renditions of "Torn" and "Interstate Love Song."  But do you really have to do covers of songs like "Du Hast" and "Hurt" without really changing much about the song's original composition?

One of the most interesting covers I've heard is Perfect Circle's version of John Lennon's "Imagine."  Yeah, yeah, I can hear you Beatles fans and rock purists groaning all the way from here.  But they took a touchy-feely song that American Idol contestants love to sing and turned it into an ominous metal ballad.  Not better than the original, just different.

The point is, if you're gonna cover a song, put your own spin on it.  And if you're gonna call your CD Punk Goes 90's, you'd better hire some bands who actually play PUNK MUSIC.

 

But I digress.  Like, from everything.  Because we had one hell of a nice night last night!

The weather was cool and breezy, the food was warm and toasty, and the Fireball was flowing!  (Well, maybe that last part only applies to me.  And I guess the food wasn't particularly warm and toasty if you ordered the gazpacho.  But I don't think Red's serves gazpacho.  So I think I'm safe.)  

And the quiz!  Everyone did spectacularly, especially since we threw Counting Crows covers and a fake Samuel L. Jackson at you!

I'm gonna call him Samuel L. Wackson.  Cuz that shit was wack.

And I'm still really proud of your team names!  Good job all around.  Picking a Best Team Name of the Night was a TOUGH CALL!  Bring it again next week and I promise I'll choose YOUR team name, okay??

 

Thanks for coming out!

Here is an excerpt from my Wikipedia page:

"Evan Boston was born a poor sharecropper's son in Upper Manhattan.  So dire was his family's poverty that young Evan was forced to subsist on soy sauce and steamed fingernail clippings.  His life was forever changed when he pressed his soy-sauce-bespattered face to the glass of a public house wherein a Geeks Who Drink pub quiz was being held.  Evan knew then what his life's work would be from that moment on.  He sold his father's prize possession, a tortoiseshell comb, to pay for tuition for Quizmasters' Academy.  After years of being bullied and shunned by the rich students and Samoans, Evan finally proved his worth by graduating 4th in his Quizmaster's class, for which he was presented an Applebee's gift card.  He has yet to use it."

...and then Beatles, Hanson, and Jonas Brothers fans tear me limb from limb.  Although, if I were to estimate the brute strength of any fan base, I think Hanson fans would win hands-down.  They're some tough muthafuckas.  They built a musical obsession around a band that wasn't even hunky.  Like, AT ALL.  And Hanson only really had one BIG song.  And then they had a prolific and at times even critically-approved career.  Yet the general public hears "Hanson" and only thinks "MMMBop."

Point is, it's gotta be tough being a Hanson fan.

(Jonas Brothers fans can go suck an egg.  Half the time they don't even have a drummer on stage.  WTF??)

 

Enough!  Enough about boy bands!  You came to Red's to play a quiz!  Or perhaps you came to get your dog some free water.  That's right: Red's Porch offers free water to all dogs*!

The next time your pooch is parched, bring it to Red's!

 

We had an interesting quiz.  A disqualified team got first place (we are totes serial about that "six person per team" rule), which caused us to have a tie for third!  After a short, short tiebreaker (apparently we only know one Sylvester Stallone movie...), we had our winners!

 

But everyone's a winner at Geeks Who Drink!  And by that, I mean that we all had fun for FREE!  I don't actually mean that everyone gets prizes.  I would run out really fast.

 

Thanks to Anna for stepping in when Chelsea is saving the world-- hopefully we'll see both of them again soon!

 

Facebook-- it's not just for stalking your old high school boyfriend!

 

See ya next week!

James is a Movie Geek, Comic Geek, Music Geek, and Beer Geek.

Both.

A day for fools. But not you lot. So smart were you all to roll with the punches of a quiz, be it forwards or backwards. Chelsea and I, Evan Boston, are humbled by how great you all are to us every week. We love seeing you every week and tonight was no different.

A night that looked out the back window of our quiz-mobile as we swayed and swerved in reverse through nerdy Thomas Edison proposals, Nine sick days, Nine times? Nine times, and Flanders' bad luck with ladies (maybe marriage to lefties leads to death, hmmm?). We talked of Gus Esposito (not a thing), and Kenneth Lay (the worst of things), “hilarious” headlines, and EMF (like a buncha times). And capped off the night with a slimy Marky Mark, but you “funky bunch” were drip dry.

A tie for third was needed to be broken at the end of the day, and what better to “dance off” to than the tejano classic “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” by Selena? Yesterday was the 19th anniversary of her tragic death, and yet one contestant dared to sully her memory by pushing his competitor and then bitching out before completing the task at hand. Those types don't walk away with $10 gift certificates. No, not those men.

A joy, again, to be with you all tonight. We, Evan and Chelsea, shall see you again at the turn of the tide. Or, you know, next Tuesday. In the meantime, check out our facebook page, won't you?

 

Wolves.
