WTF Just Happened Here?
You’ve heard it all before so I’ll give you the abridged version.
Day job blah blah blah, up early with no sleep blah blah blah, skipped lunch blah blah blah cranky pants when I got to TitS blah blah blah, you all are awesome blah blah blah, I left in a good mood blah blah blah.

This is a serious question that I’m about to ask. What did happen to the Star Wars that I used to know?

Wow, 1999 was a bad year for movies. When 10 Things I Hate About You was released only one movie could do better than it, and that was The Matrix. Think about that for a minute. There was a weekend in 1999 where not a single movie fell between those two.

I’m sorry son, but you must have be confused with someone else.

…AKA Ghost Riders in the Sky continued their dream team ways and took first.
Supra Heroes claimed second place.
Beans Don’t Burn on the Grill finished in third place and just barely missed the money shot by 1 point.
Matt won the email bonus drawing and got Zip-It from Bananagrams. This had absolutely nothing to do with the hand job he offered (and executed). I randomly drew his name right in front of you all. The hand job, thankfully, was not in front of all of you.
Our old playlist is still on Spotify (and still being inserted into your earlobes each week). Leave it alone. We’re starting over.
Here is the link to the NEW playlist. As of the time this blog was published the playlist was empty. Change that please? Here are the new rules: We’re geeks, guys. We love our music and we hate that crappy stuff all the kids are listening to these days (Now get off my lawn! And no, I won’t call you. Not even maybe.) so let’s make this playlist enjoyable. I want to hear some new stuff that hasn’t hit the mainstream yet. Maybe revive some old B-sides from that old album you wore out 6 years ago. Maybe you know of some great local artists? You can also go with extended versions of songs, parodies, covers, live and acoustic recordings, or whatever else floats your boat. The only caveat is that the songs need to either be in the Spotify global library or available on my local drive if you want to actually hear them. And of course, as always, keep it safe for the kiddies.
Sign up for the email list so you can take bonus prizes home for yourself and get sneak previews of what our rounds will be about each week.
Our website (oh look at that, you’re already here!) has all sorts of fun tools and things such as:
The Big Finish
For serious, guys, you fucking rock. You sit there for 2 hours while I crack lame jokes and make fun of people (like Jon and his mom, Jon and his age, Jon and his tardiness, etc) and laugh to make me feel better. Laughter really is the best medicine and I look forward to another dose next week at 8PM.
Also, please don't eat your scoresheet. Please.
