Last night I tried to ask you guys if you’d ever played The Noid video game as a kid, and I was surprised by you nerds, because none of you said yes.  So now I’m going to lay some knowledge bombs on you, because you clearly don’t know about the important things in life.  First, if you’re not sure what the hell the Noid is, check out this video.  Now, there were two Noid video games: Avoid the Noid for the Commodore 64 and MS-DOS, and Yo! Noid for the NES and in some arcades.   In Avoid the Noid, you play as a pizza delivery boy trying to deliver pizza to the top of a tower, all while Noids are trying to stop you.  The baffling thing about this game are the hoops you have to jump through just to get this guy his pizza.  I mean, why on earth would a person hide their keys for you to find, just so that you can give them a pizza that they paid for? In Yo! Noid, you play as the Noid, and you’re trying to stop this green slime creature or something, in order to get your pizza reward from the mayor.  Honestly, the plot of the second one makes absolutely no sense.  Why would the Noid want a pizza reward? He hates pizza! Did dominoes forget the entire premise of their weird mascot? At any rate, both of these games were terrible, and I can only imagine the execs at Dominoes, a company in the food and service industry, thought getting into the video game industry was the best idea they had ever come up with.  It makes me glad that they’re just sticking to pizza now.

Clearly, my favorite round last night was Round 4, the round on pizza.  This is because I have a ridiculous love for pizza.  It goes beyond America’s love of pizza, and that’s saying a lot because America really loves pizza.  It’s a $40 billion a year industry, with Americans eating at least 100 acres of pizza on the daily.  So it goes without saying that the average for that round was a 7/8.  Round 4 also had my favorite answer of the night, which was that Donald Trump eats pizza by himself, and that’s why Jon Stewart made fun of him.  Whereas that wasn’t the answer we were looking for, I imagine that Mr. Trump does eat everything alone.

Lastly, let’s talk about the standings.  First, second and third were dominated byLittle Lebowski Urban AchieversSquirrels Gone Wild, and Llama Glama, respectively.  LLUA had a pretty impressive finishing score of 86, so props to them.  The team I want to give the biggest shoutout to is Illegal Frackers. That team missed the first three rounds, and still managed to not come in last.  Way to be guys.  Come on time, and you might just place.

Have any of you seen Tim Burton’s rendition of Planet of the Apes?  Do any of you remember the ending of that movie, and how it made absolutely no sense whatsoever?  I’m going to rant about this for a minute, so bear with me.  The movie as a whole is not so bad, at the very least it has Mark Wahlberg, and at one point an ape writes a letter with her feet.  The thing that is really frustrating about this movie is the ending.  See, for those of you who know nothing of this movie, or its franchise, Mark Wahlberg is an astronaut who goes to the future, crash lands on a planet full of apes, fights to survive, and then leaves, going back in time to his own world.  He crash lands on earth in front of the Lincoln Memorial in D.C.  However, things are not as they seem.  As Marky Mark gazes upon the Lincoln Memorial, he realizes it’s not Abraham Lincoln, but rather (queue record scratch) APE-RAHAM LINCOLN!!  Then out of nowhere, the deserted streets fill up with cop cars and surround Mr. Wahlberg, and piling out of those cars are APE COPS who all point guns at him and tell him to freeze.  Roll end credits. 
                Wait, WHAT?!  What the hell just happened? (Not just; I do understand that this movie came out in 2001, and that my complaints on it are less than timely.) He went to the future, then went back to his time, and we were replaced by apes?? Also, D.C. is the same, it’s just replaced by apes.  And there’s an ape Lincoln Memorial, which means there was an ape civil war, which also means there were ape slaves (most likely Howler Monkeys, just saying…)!  So in this weird, doesn’t-make-any-sense timeline, apes have done everything humans have done, in the same way, but they were apes.  One might say that’s bananas, but then we’d realize that in that timeline, there’s an ape Gwen Stefani.

Whew, alright, I’m finished, so let’s move on.  Last night’s quiz was awesome! We had a great turnout, and some impressive scores, considering how difficult the quiz was.  Round two, our first audio round of the night, was on the music from Guardians of the Galaxy.  Whereas I’m sure 99% of you saw this movie, not many of you know the almost 40 year old music.  Seriously though, who can blame you? Who gives a crap about Redbone or Rupert Holmes when we have the modern musical stylings of Nicki Minaj?  Round six, a round on candy bars, seemed to give a lot of teams trouble as well.  I guess very few of you guys have a sweet tooth.

Finally, the quiz was dominated by Squirrels Gone Wild, that is until the eighth round, where Legion of Doom took over, just barely sliding into first place with a score of 72, Leaving Squirrels in second with 71, and IDK in third.  A special shout out goes to Ouch is Not a Safeword for winning “Just Not Last.”  They dethroned my mom’s team, Who Dat, in order for one of their team members to take a shot of White Russian and pickle juice.  The team member who took the shot, took this nasty little concoction like a seasoned veteran, which is why she wins my “True Champion” award.  Sadly, there are no prizes for this award, only the respect from your colleagues, mixed with the vomit that was sure to follow after taking that shot.

I recently watched the Raid 2.  For those of you who don’t know about this movie, or its predecessor, STOP reading, go to your nearest movie retail store, and pick up a copy of The Raid: Redemption.  Alright, now that you’ve seen the greatest action movie in the last ten years, let’s talk about the sequel.  It’s entertaining as all hell, but not as good.  The plot is too convoluted, and they introduce new characters with wonton abandon, even an hour and a half into the movie. . . really, just a bad script.  It’s visually stunning though, and still worth a watch.  Anyway, my point in bringing this up is that these two movies are getting the Hollywood treatment.  Why on earth do we need to remake these movies?  Maybe a better script for the second movie, but what about the first movie?  You can’t make The Raid: Redemption a better film.  It’s already at the top of the game. All you can hope to do at this point is not embarrass yourself, Patrick Hughes.  This guy has only directed two feature length films, one of which is the latest expansion in the Expendables franchise.  I don’t know what the people at Sony Pictures Entertainment are thinking, because this is the quagmire of bad decision making.

Speaking of bad choices and directors (see my awesome attempt at a paragraph transition?), round 3 of the quiz stumped a lot of you last night.  To be fair though, that was a difficult round.  Sooner or Later rounds tend to stump a lot of teams, and this was no exception.  Having to name a director based on the actors they tend to frequently work with proved extremely difficult for #Unnecessary#Hashtags, as well as the team with my favorite name of the night, The Dilldozer. 

The rest of the quiz was dominated by Legion of Doom, Gaza Strippers, and Llama Glama, who came in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd, respectively. These teams know their directors, as well as how to take care of their lawns (not a euphemism).   A special shout out goes to the Gaza Strippers, who gave my favorite wrong answer of the night.  Apparently no members of that team have seen the 1992 classic Disney’s Aladdin, because when asked what Aladdin’s first wish was, they answered with “freedom from entrapment.”  I suppose if Aladdin was the kind of street thug that spent what little money he had frequenting the local prostitute bazaar of Agrabah, this would be a wish well spent.
