Derek (Dr. Kaufman)

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.

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".

A team last night booed the Listen Carefully clip of Weird Al’s “Word Crimes”. THEY BOOED IT. I can’t even begin to let you know how stupid not liking Weird Al is, but suffice to stay, it’s really really stupid. I present to you 5 reasons why they were wrong to boo him and why he is, in fact, TOTALLY AWESOME:

5.  He’s funny and he’s a humanitarian. Al doesn’t only put out incredible song parodies. He also supports the American Foundation For Equal Rights and the Human Rights Campaign.

4.  He asks permission to do his parodies, even though he doesn’t have to. And he respects it, even though it is pretty shitty to deny him (I mean really, there should be no greater honor… Even Dave Grohl said his parody of Nirvana meant they had “made it”). On the list of deniers? Prince, Yoko Ono, and U2.

3. He’s as methodical about his songwriting as Eminem, often coming up with a myriad of ways to run one line before selecting the exact one he likes the sound of.

2. He is a voracious reader. There is just something awesome… and dare I say it, even kind of sexy?... about a man who is an avid reader in this day and age.

1. The music is just good. Despite being parodies, his songs stand on their own with well-written lyrics and amazing videos.

TWO THINGS WE'RE GOOD AT: TRIVIA & AWKWARD SILENCES took first, with LEGION OF DOOM  and THE JOHN STAM-HOES right behind. It was my last night as QMMF at Luscious – I want to say thanks to the staff and quizzers for a good run of *almost* a year of my life. Come see me at another venue, or else I will catch you when I come by to kick your asses at pub quiz.

The song “Graduation” by Vitamin C was a big part of our audio round tonight and brought me straight back to high school tonight. I mean, I graduated high school in 2002, and that song came out in 1999, so obviously is was played at our graduation. Right? Wrong.

What else could have possibly been selected in its stead? You ask. Is it that song “Sunscreen” by Baz Luhrman? First: YES, Bas Luhrman did both that song and the movies Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge and the Great Gatsby (stick that in your trivia pipe and smoke it). Second: A valid guess. With lyrics giving advice about the impending doom of my generation’s hair, nails, friendships, self-worth, tooth care, opinions of others, and my favorite, skin (due to my especially pasty pallor I might be the only one in my high school who did not tan to a dry, orange-brown crisp for 4 years… so I am really looking forward to my 30s and beyond when that bad beauty choice comes back to bite a lot of ladies in the butt via wrinkles… whose skin is weird now, huh?!). WRONG.

In what I hope is a yet-unmatched lack of creativity on their part (though I am sure I am wrong), my senior class chose our graduation song as “It’s the End of the World as We Know It” by R.E.M. Damn, really? That’s what you chose? I mean… no, it’s not. What a stupid sentiment. It is actually the beginning of what I considered my actual real-live life, the start of important things I cared about it, and the end of nothing. It was a transition!

Now, you may think this is a petty thing to think; I mean, I graduated high school 12 years ago. I guess I’m just saying that what we should have really gone with was my idea, which is the theme to Caddy Shack, “I’m Alright” by Kenny Loggins. Because really, we were, and are. And also: because Caddyshack, man. Caddyshack.
