This is Ken "Snarky Shark" Lindsay! I'm the current host of the GeeksWhoDrink Pubquiz over at the Blarney Stone, in downtown Seattle!
As for me, I'm pretty much a Seattlite. Sure, I've lived in California, Arizona, Washington, Idaho, but I definitely call this place my home. I dig the grunge scene and like the local legends Pearl Jam and Nirvana. However, I also dig a decent Irish jig (a shout out to Gaelic Storm, who do not visit Seattle enough!) , so the Blarney Stone has been ideal for me.
I got this gig to replace (impossible, I say!) Gentleman Johnny, the previous quizmaster, who happens to be a close friend of mine in real life! who would have thought? Personally, I dig science questions. Why? Well, in real life <le sigh> I'm a graduate student in the department of Biochemistry in the University of Washington. So, mixing pleasures is always fun. (Shaken not stirred, thankyouverymuch.)
I really enjoy the regular players, with their funny quirks, and the hopeful glean in the eyes of the newbies, who think they can win. (How quickly those hopes are shattered...) I'm always down for a pint with a friendly face, so if you ever want to talk, just let me know!
As for the moniker, "Snarky Shark", just wait until you are at the other end of the quiz. Don't know the answer? Oh, I'll know, I can smell the blood in the water...
October 1st, 2012 - The Blarney Stone
I was woken up by the fact that September has ended.
With that obvious joke aside it was time to get down to quizness...
Tonight we saw the unprecedented 1st place victory by Jigglytuffs through 1 point. Thereby establishing that it is impossible to win by a Jigglytuff. *
*Jigglytuff: noun. A unit of measurement of 2 points and typically associated with not winning.
Still, pretty awesome, but how did the Blarney Stone do overall:
What they won at:
Christian Paradoies of popular songs & The New Yorker Comic (Who knew?)
What they lost by a Jigglytuff to:
Questions with the answer Yes, No, or Maybe & Random Knowledge (once again, disappointed.)
Let's see how they will do next week. Heck, they might even win a free Pitcher.
But I doubt that. Only one way to find out: Next week! At the Blarney Stone!
