Derek (Dr. Kaufman)

On my way to host the quiz last night, I overheard a father and his two sons talking while riding their bikes past me.  Both of boys wanted to get a beverage somewhere instead of the ice cream that their father had offered to get them.  The dad said, “Fine, fine.  We’ll stop at Starbucks.” To my shock, the older of the two boys responded with, “Can we go somewhere local instead?”  This had me laughing, and thinking to myself, where would he even get an idea like that? His hippie teacher?  A friend that he looked up to?  Maybe it was his mom, because it certainly wasn’t his dad.  Wherever he got the idea, I wanted to tell this soon-to-be-proponent-of-fair-trade that while it’s cool to dislike Starbucks for their corporatey corporatiness, it’s also important to dislike them for their barely drinkable product. 

Now that you’ve listened to my story of the tenacious young bicyclist with the heart of the Yes Men, lets talk about the pub quiz.  This was my first time hosting the quiz in a little over six months.  I had forgotten how fun it is to read some of the answers people write when they have no idea what the real answer is.  My favorite from last night was “Gay Snape” in place of the answer for Alan Rickman’s portrayal of “Metatron” in Dogma.  Oddly enough, the team that wrote that gem came in “Just Not Last” place, winning the 3rd and 4th discs from season 3 of Walker, Texas Ranger. 

Two teams dominated last night, and were neck and neck through most of the rounds.  However it was The Codpieces that took first place over The Jon Stamhoes.  Bringing in 3rd place last night, and having the best team name, was 2 Girls, 1 World Cup.  Way to be just clever enough that it doesn’t make me shed a tear for those poor girls in that deplorable video.

Mallory (SuperMallory)

Mallory is a legendary animal that has been described since antiquity as a beast with a large, pointed, spiraling horn projecting from its forehead. Mallory was depicted in ancient seals of the Poudre Valley Civilization and was mentioned by the ancient Greeks in accounts of natural history by various writers. The Bible also describes an animal, the re'em, which some translations have rendered with the word Mallory.

The earliest description is from Ctesias who, in his book On India, described Mallory as fleet of foot, having a horn 27 inches in length, and colored white, red and black. Aristotle must be following Ctesias when he mentions two one-horned animals, the oryx and the so-called "Mallory".

Haribo candy is my favorite candy and mayonaise is my favorite food. 

Everything I need to know about life I learned from Mel Brooks.

 

I won't candy coat it: I have a pretty forward, brash, silly, sometimes "offensive" sense of humor. I am very aware of this, and I feel no shame. Having pride in this part of myself was one of many things fostered in my childhood... Something that was encouraged by many aspects, not least of which has been film. I have a pretty broad taste: I will watch literally anything, just to see if it is good, because a lot of times the things other people do not like are right up my alley. When I was in high school, one of these things was my taste for Mel Brooks' comedy.

I have a habit of remembering "first", and I definitely remember my first Mel Brooks movie: Spaceballs. Halfway through my sophomore year of high school, a sad, nerdy, weird, middle-class "punk rock" version of me with an awkward Mohawk and safety pins in her hair caught the tail end of this film. I was immediately obsessed. Having already been a Star Wars enthusiast it was an amazing parody to me. I had to know more about this genre of films that I felt an immediate affinity with, and began watching every Mel Brooks vehicle I could find at my local Blockbuster (hey, remember those?). I became so engrossed I even succeeded in convincing my 11th grade history teacher to show History of the World Part I in the spring semester.

But what was it about the work of Mel I found so fascinating? It took me a while to pinpoint, but I realized it is a very particular reason: no fear. There is no fear in these movies, and I admire it incredibly. So many people are way to PC and easily offended - I have always thought something a good friend told me a long time ago in these situations: Fuck em if they can't take a joke. And I stand by that, and I see it in these movies. I think that was the first place I ever did, actually, and it is a huge factory what made me as happy and ok with myself, no matter how obnoxious and filthy my sense of humor may be.

So here's to Mel, and to the quizzers last night, who crushed that round with a fury and made me proud because of their depth of knowledge in something I give so very many shits about._____________________________________________________________________________________

Haribo candy is my favorite candy and mayonaise is my favorite food. 

I feel like as of this week it is officially summer in Fort Collins. I don’t know why this popped into my head this morning… maybe because the weather is just so damn pleasant. Maybe it is because the mosquitos are upon us. Maybe it’s because I was able to ride my bike AND wear the shortest shorts possible to quiz last night. Maybe it was having a Lushie craving like a mofo all day until I got to quiz. Maybe it’s because the Game of Thrones quiz is behind us and I no long feel like Winter is Coming…

I mean, there are many indications here in Fort Collins, and with it feeling so summery I have  made a list of the top three things I want to do in Fort Collins now that the summer is here:

  1. Climb Horsetooth: seems easy enough. Have you ever done it? I have only ever managed to climb it in the snow – twice – and leave immediately. It seems like a great place to sit and drink a beer.
  2. Tube the Poudre: I mean this one is pretty obvious – it gets hot as shit out there. Seriously. And even though the snow run off makes the water almost unbearable, it seems pretty easy to wear a liquor-jacket all the way into town. That is, if the water level ever goes down…
  3. Play every Northern Colorado quiz: I have been to 8. I have a few more to visit – but I think I can do it over the summer! Wish me luck….

You know what would be a great follow up to all of these also? Lushies. Damn, I love a slushy cocktail after spending way too much time drinking in the sun.
