Dial 1-900-MIX-A-LOT and kick them heteronormative thoughts.
AB Baby

Hey there, Mister Tramps! Lindsay and I had such a great time quizzing with y'all last night. I missed Chelsea - I'm sure y'all did too - but Lindsay is one of my favorite co-workers and I never get to see her!Lindsay just gets me. For example, at the very beginning of quiz when we played Baby Got Back and we were all singing along. And when it got to the part where the crowd answers back - you know, "fellas" "yeah" "fellas" "yeah"... I made a comment about how heteronormative the lyrics were. Why can't the fellas be proud of their boyfriend's butt? It's one of those thoughts that I had out loud and didn't really expect anyone to respond to. But Lindsay wholeheartedly agreed

I'm Home!
Chels

Hey everyone! It was great to be back. I travel a lot, and I always miss hosting. So it’s super exciting when I’m back again! Also, Anna is back too. Dream team! Another great time had by all last night. We quizzed you on Famous Juniors, which you all did really well on. Then our audio round, Elements of Sound, you had to just name the artist and the element whose chemical symbol starts with the first letter of the artist name. You all groaned about it, but you all did VERY well on that. Nice! I would not have. What’s a chemical symbol? While I was out, I was in Alaska and Sacramento. If you haven’t been to Alaska,

The Prodigal Son Returns
The Urge

Mister Tramps, I can feel the love. It was great to be back with you again tonight. Some of the faces may have changed, but this is still one of my favorite places to QM at. Shout out to Chelsea and Anna for keeping up such a good vibe. They’ve also got you guys trained pretty well. Watching you put the answer sheets in the pink box while SK Mary was constantly holding her hand out was extremely entertaining. After a slight rough start (so many electronics…), we finally got on a roll. We had some early struggles on the audio round because apparently no one listens to Country or Top 40 music. Luckily everyone had an extra

Hey yo. I'm RJ. The Urge. R-Jizzle. I'm a transplanted Austinite, originally hailing from Clarksville, Tennessee. I was educated at a school where it's perfectly acceptable to show your Peay-ness. I'm your typical sports fan. (Soccer being my sport of choice.) Cereal is my favorite food, simply because you can eat it at any time of the day. And it makes milk totally flavorful and drinkable.

I'm a total nut for pop culture...movies, music, books. I try to take as much of it in as possible, regardless of how it eats into my daily responsibilities. I'm still a video game nerd, although there isn't a lot of time for it nowadays. I'm a shameless fan of reality television and I once made it through the first two cuts of casting for The Real World. But, alas, I wasn't emotionally challenged enough to make it all of the way.

Professional wrestling is still real to me.

Nerd Cred: Established
AB Baby

Hello, Mister Tramps! I am writing this blog to you from Gate 7 of the Barbara Jordan Terminal at Austin Bergstrom International Airport. Between me and Chelsea, your Quizmasters are a couple of jetsetters! Chelsea is spending the week in Alaska and based on the pictures she's sent, it's about the most picturesque setting I have ever seen! And me? I'm heading to Atlanta for my very first DragonCon! I'm shoring up my nerd credentials this weekend and I'm SOOOO excited about it! Here's why: 1) Let's start with the obvious: the people! Not only do I get to see a few celebrities, including my favorite musician in the whole world (!!!!), BUT my very best friend from middle school

Anna Was BACK!
Chels

Hey gang! We had yet another night of fun times at Mister Tramps. We always do and I always love it! Anna swapped out last week but was back with fun energy and fun times. She was happy to be back, I totally spoil her. Bryan from last week was spoiled and talked about not going back to his regular venue. We win! We quizzed you guys on a lot of stuff. The Before and After video round was awesome. You all did very well on it. You did the best on Round 2 His Name is My Name, Too!, we played 2 clips of songs by artists that share a name, you named the 2 artists. A lot of high scores on that one. Nice! Anywho, hope you

Hiya gang! So Anna did some swapping and she went and worked with QM Daniel at Spider House last night. That meant that QM Bryan, who is the regular SK there, came and hung out with us. It was awesome! I bet he doesn't want to go back to Spider House. Tramps is amazing! Also, we didn't wear the same shirt, but we ended up wearing the same style of shirt. His was Hamilton themed and mine was Firefly themed. There is totally a pic up there in the slide show. The video round was awesome! It was Porn Parodies again, nice. I loved how people were like, we got this, but it was a little difficult. Haven't seen those porns,

Nic's BDAY!
Chels

Hey everybody! What a night we had! Again, that's my favorite. Every week here is super awesome and super fun. I love all the singing along, and the banter between the teams. All that shit.  On my memories on FB recently, they have all been about how I was coming back to Tramps. I have been hosting and scoring here since 2009. Then some things happened, and I couldn't stay. When I got the call saying that I can have Tramps and host, I of course jumped up and down, literally. This is my favorite bar in Austin. The staff is always friendly, they have good drinks, good music, good quiz (duh!), good open mics, good sports on TV, I mean it's just all good. I call it Cheers

Chels

Wow. Just wow. I love when you guys just go into a singalong with my music. That's my favorite thing! I pause those songs between questions so that you can keep singing. It's the best! I started playing Take On Me, and you guys were definitely hitting that high pitch note in the chorus. I was impressed. It was really fun. I always have a playlist already made before I get to quiz, so I went into my library and added some more songs that we could all sing along with. That totally worked! Anywho, we had some rounds. It was fun! Random Knowledge was the big money round for everyone. You all did very well on it. It was the video game question, right?  The

Mark McGrath Left a Tip in Austin

What a fucking great night! I showed up tired, but I knew that it was just take me a little bit to snap out of that. And I totally did! The music was bumping last night, if I say so myself. Since I was playing the music, of course I loved it! But you guys were enjoying it too! I saw several people singing and dancing with me. It was amazing. I love those kinds of nights! After quiz a few people came up and said they had a great time and said that me and Anna are the best. We love hearing that shit! One guy said he drives all the way from way South Austin just to come to Tramps on Wednesdays to quiz with us. That's freaking awesome. You like me! You really

Quiz Mixer Success!
Chels

Wow! What a turnout for the quiz last night. We had 28 teams and several people that came to play with new people. They gave us their names and we put them with random people. Great success! Thanks for doing this with us. We'll most likely do another again, and maybe we'll get more people! Yay! We started off the night being kind of rowdy, but we all got into a nice rhythm. Our video round was awesome! I loved everyone's reaction to it! I can't too many details here because others might still be playing that video round. Anna was back! After being gone for like 3 weeks, she graced us with her wonderfulness yet again. Also, we are about to become roommates!

I Don't Play Pokemon Go!, I Get Laid
Chels

Hey everyone! We had a great time at Tramps! It was a Poke-stop for all you people who have traveled back to the 90s. Which isn't bad, I loved the 90s!  Tramps also had drink specials for the Poke people. They had red, blue, and yellow drinks. Kavi was my SK and right when she got there she got real excited about all that. She got a yellow drink, even though she's Blue team, but she liked it! She then had a blue one, and said it was better than the yellow. Which is what I hear. Then she had the red. They were all good! But she liked the blue the best. So remember that! Drinks! Why is yellow team so bad? People say it's the worst team. Did you

Where My Balls Grow, Where?
Chels

That title is in reference to a team that wrote that for the answer to "Besides The Taming of the Shrew, what 2 Shakespeare plays have titles that use the same word twice." I don't know if I would read that. I mean is it about balls? We all know that's not my thing.  Apparently my thing is quizzers buying me a shot when the sound gets a little funky, or I misread a question. That's hilarious. Bartender Laura made a shot for me and Patrick2. He was sub SKing for Anna while she's in a Belarussian prison. You know what they say, what happens in Belarus, stays in Belarus. Anywho, Laura made a Neopolitan shot.

2 Frowny Farmers
Chels

Yeah, you know what I'm talking about! And they are not Chinese. I hope that's not racist.  There are a few things that every Quizmaster has done in their QM career. Having to yell the quiz due to audio problems is one of them, dealing with an overly drunk heckler, and accidentally reading out an answer.  Now, I started blacking out the answers on my quiz print out so I won't read out an answer. Apparently that doesn't matter. I totally said an answer, in Round 1. So everyone got a free point! HAND! Someone asked for a repeat for that question, so I just said the answer was hand.

That is really great! As a company we are having QFAC for this all over the country. They started Tuesday, and tonight is the last night for them. There are 2 venues partaking in Austin tonight. Check the Facebook page for more details on where to go if you want to donate more. They also have a Go Fund Me account where you can donate by credit card.  The last number I saw was over 10K that we have raised so far. It's so awesome! I'm glad I made it through without crying

I Wish I Had a Twin My Own Age
Chels

Our visual round was on twins. Also, one time, in college, I was watching Tru Confessions with my roommate, and she totally said those exact words in the title. I told her I would give her a minute to think about it. It took her almost a minute.  It's probably the best thing ever. Besides when my other college roommate thought in the song Tipsy, they were saying "everybody in the club get in Texas." So of course that's how we always sing it.  Anywho! We had a quiz! It was a big one too! (Phrasing) 27 teams showed up to hang at Tramps and play some quiz. You guys did pretty well on that Twins round. Nice! The audio round we changed up a bit.
