Howdy cowpokes! Well me and my pardner John-boy sure took a likin' to y'all tonight. We rustled up some good times, made ya use your noggins (Nick Jr's?), while sippin on some mighty tasty sarsaparillas. A rootin-tootin good time! And we both wore cowboy shirts. Quiz breakdown go!
-Those that remembered my Mystery Playlist from a few weeks back had a bit of a leg up on Round Two. Not that you should've needed much help identifying some of the most recognizable bands ever (Soul II Soul notwithstanding), but then some of you couldn't differentiate Led Zepplin from the Rolling Stones (Really?!).
-Someone (We) should make a spoof movie trailer of the more menacing Magic School Bus we described. I want to see a demonic Ms. Frizzle with a hissing lizard on her shoulder yelling at Arnold to “Take Chances! Make Mistakes! Get Messy!” ...You think Lily Tomlin is available?
-So yea, there is totally a Tamagotchi app. I wish it was still some oblong pixel blob, but alas it's now a well defined dinosaur thing. It still eats, shits, and dies. Oh, and is boring and useless as fuck. So at least they kept that aspect intact.
-Many teams out-cried about Michael Jackson always being “black”, but c'mon people. Regardless, just like Dr. Conrad Murray, you all killed that round.
-Many of you were “shaken, not stirred” by one particular question in Round Eight. You felt like a “lucky punk” with your guesses, but ended up saying “hasta la vista” to your points when you wrote down Indiana Jones. I bet he'll “be back”, and may be on the next AFI list, that'd “make my day”. Until then, I remain Pound, “James” Pound. Also, Casablanca is just one movie silly!
-The Botched Plastic Surgery Round inspired our bonus game tonight that everyone was clamoring to partake in...ahem. We had you show us your ugliest face, and boy there were some nasty looking mugs on display. I feel the audience might've judged a lil' differently if they could have seen the faces as clear as the photos to the left show. Truly nasty. Glad we allowed an eyelid flipping opportunity for one contestant. “I hadn't done that since Fourth Grade!”
Good times everybody, thanks again for coming out! I've gotta get back to my erotic literature, but we'll be back next week with more weirdness/quizness, see you then! http://youtu.be/gdNrs9RLn_Q “Is this some sort of car wash?” ummmm not quite...
