A Non-Standard Lack Of Standards
Cody H.

Folks, last night's quiz introduced some fun and more-challenging-than-usual round structures. From the hilarity of John Oliver being filtered through my slightly-annoying voice, to people covering Bob Dylan's best song in honor of his birthday, to identifying famous movie musical numbers and the lead actors/actresses in said films. Do you even know who Tom Everett Scott is? I didn't, and That Thing You Do! is a movie I watch at least once a year. Also a shocker, people can't identify Whitney Houston's voice anymore. We even had a round about things you might find at your local mini-golf course, such

It's Only Stupid If It Doesn't Work
Cody H.

Folks, unlike many of the other fine Quizmasters you may find at any of your local Houston Geeks Who Drink venues, I am a fan of the professional sports. My childhood was going to Astros games way in the upper deck of the Dome, and once the Texans brought football back to town when I was twelve I started following them too. As such, I like to watch sports on TV, because I can't be at the ballpark as much as I would like to. As such, I get into the game and yell shit at the screen as well as following various superstitions. However, in the back of my mind, like a rational adult, I know the little men on the TV can't hear me yell at them. Case in point: last night during quiz the Astros were

That's How It Works
Cody H.

Good evening, folks! Hope you're having a wonderful...Thursday? Today is Thursday. Last night was Wednesday, and that meant we had quiz on the greatest patio in Midtown at your friendly local Little Woodrow's. Last night's round theming was a smidge strange, even for us. Seven songs that spell out another song? A round that has nothing to do with Dr. Seuss? The vidya games? A challenging night for sure, but with a surplus of points thanks to a 16-point Round 3 on famous directors that would have killed at my other venue. Just remember, no matter how strange or confusing the description of a round is, just get the question right. Listen to it, use context clues if you need to,

Dying At A Normal Rate
Cody H.

Good evening, true believers! We were graced yet again with both good weather and our new Scorekeeper Kevin, as well as a constant cough that's been plaguing me all week. Is this the third week in a row I'm complaining about how bad my throat hurts? Of course it is! I had a 102 degree fever that broke in the middle of quiz last week, and since then I've been dealing with the corpse of said cold slowly, slowly, SLOWLY leaving my body. As such, stuffy noses and lingering coughs are the order of the day. Good news, I probably DON'T have tuberculosis! I won't say I'm not dying, because we are all slowly dying, but at least I'm not accelerating down that path anymore.   Anyway,

Cough Cough Cough
Cody H.

If you didn't already realize from my frequent coughs into the microphone and general fatigue last night, I'm getting over a cold; y'all ain't getting a good recap. New scorekeeper is here! His name is Kevin, so there's that.   Here's what we learned this week: Not a dang thing, as it turns out. At least we were back on the patio this week, and we got to watch Jose Altuve sock a dinger and this disastrous Rockets season finally come to a close. We also learned why Prince Fielder is called that, who never won gold in the Olympics, and how many #1 hits Prince had. A varied night of quiz, to be sure.   Our top two teams were great,

Oh God My Throat
Cody H.

Baseball is back, everybody! Like some of you, I got the chance to attend the home opener for YOUR Houston Astros on Monday. It was the first time I'd ever been to an Opening Day, and even though I sat in one of the few seats that is literally behind a pillar, I had a grand old time. Tyler White just gets hits, Collin McHugh recovered from his disastrous first start, and we saw some Colby Jack. Everything was good! Unfortunately, I yelled my fucking guts out for the hometown nine, and come quiz night I could just barely pass as a QM on the mike. My upper register was basically gone, and it didn't help that for some reason the patio speakers cut out halfway through.

Savor The Weather
Cody H.

Good evening, everyone! We were finally back out on the patio last night, enjoying the absolutely beautiful weather that I will be dreaming about come June. Mid-seventies, a nice calm breeze, no humidity? Heaven. Apparently a lot of you agreed apparently, as we had a surge of new teams contributing to our 27-strong team count. We even got to sing Happy Birthday to someone who had the misfortune to celebrate it at Little Woodrow's on Quiz night. I was also without the services of a scorekeeper, and I think the fact that we only finished 30 minutes late should be considered a heroic accomplishment.   Here's what we learned this week: how to pronounce Roald Dahl's name; what

Three Simple Steps To Smart Joker Use
Cody H.

Folks, as you all know, during the quiz you can circle the little clown head on your answer sheet and double your points for a particular round. It's a fun bit of strategy that helps differentiate us between all the other shitty trivia companies you might have played with, and its use is often the difference between success and not-success. It's why I always tell you how many people have used their Joker so far, and how many 16-point rounds we have left. Amidst some murmuring I heard from people going out the door last night, here's an easy guide to help you decide when to use it. 1. If you score at least double digits in a sixteen point round (Rounds 2 and 8 are always 16 points),

Roald Can't Be A Real Name, Shut Up
Cody H.

Remember last year when the Internet had a collective freakout over the apparent revelation that it's always been BerenSTAIN Bears, not BerenSTEIN? Cool, because I had a much smaller version of that same reaction last night when I realized that beloved British author Roald Dahl's first name is NOT Ronald. Which means I've been getting that wrong my whole life! It's a crying shame, as I loved his work as a kid; James & The Giant Peach and Matilda being two of my favorites. Also, did you know he was a fighter pilot

If You Like Cool Dogs & Tiebreakers, Give Me A Hell Yeah!!!
Cody H.

Happy 3:16 Day, everyone! As a fan of the dumb sport known as professional wrestling, I wasn't going to pass up the chance of celebrating the career of Texas' own Stone Cold Steve Austin on 3/16/16. We do so out on the patio of Little Woodrow's with pleasant weather, cool dogs, and beer. Not as much beer as we would have liked, as TABC is currently on a rampage and we were unable to award any bonus prizes or end-of-night superlatives, but at least we still had a prize for the top three teams; and what a top three! Our outright First place team had too many players, so it fell to Second. Which was tied. The

Staying Dry In More Ways Than One
Cody H.

If you're reading this, congratulations! You weren't in one of the three (!!!) separate wrecks I passed last night on my way home and survived the first of the Great Floods this year. Torrential downpours forced us inside this week, and we stayed pretty mostly dry. As always, turn around; don't drown. We also learned about some new TABC rules, and as such all of your prizes, including The One I'm Not Legally Allowed To Disclose Publicly, are now only good the night of quiz. What I'm saying is, don't close out your tab until we're done at the end of the night. Or just drink beverages of your choice more, whatever works for you.   Here's what we learned this

You May All Go To Hell, And I Will Play Quiz
Cody H.

Happy Texas Independence Day, y'all! Just a scant 180 years ago, we as a state formally adopted the Texas Declaration of Independence from Mexico because they wouldn't let us have slaves anymore, and kicked off the Texas Revolution. I'm sure you all took Texas History in seventh grade and know the rest from here. Anyway, it's a fine dy and a great way to partially kick-off rodeo season here in Houston. It's a shame the HLSR line-up sucks this year, but I just go for the rodeo events. Team Roping is where it's at!   Anyways, hello! We migrated back out to the patio this week thanks to the non-typically great weather, and battled it out for quiz supremacy amidst the

Now Featuring Pencils Sharp Enough To Stab Someone With
Cody H.

Getting old is hell; for my birthday I bought myself a new pencil sharpener, because the one we have for quiz just wasn't cutting it. And you know what? It was totally worth it; I spent fifteen bucks and got a fan-fucking-tastic pencil sharpener that makes them sharp enough to stab someone with. If you see someone on their phone during quiz, feel free to stab them with your newly super-sharp pencils (note: do not actually do this). We also had the greatest Round 2 of all time last night, with soft jazz covers of popular songs that you can, by popular request, find right here. At

A Return To Death-Defying Form
Cody H.

Hello, everyone! We were back on the patio last night, as the weather finally warmed up enough to "not miserable". I even saw people out there in shorts and whatnot, which amazes me; it's still February, after all. Regardless, a return to the patio meant a return to the booths at the top of the patio, where I sit and watch all of you to make sure you're following the rules and such. However, the only real way for me to get in and out of said booth once we're set-up involves standing up on the bench, high-stepping over like eighteen different wires, and leaping over the box containing all of the quiz supplies then landing with a wood-shaking "thud" on the patio itself. I do this like four times

A Celebration of Superb Owls
Cody H.

In case you guys missed it, we as a nation celebrated our greatest secular holiday this Sunday in the form of Super Bowl 50. I didn't think you could win a championship with just an all-world defense, but apparently I know jack a-bout foot-baaall. I think Cam Newton played well enough to win, but it's hard when your entire offense breaks down around you and your best receiver remembers he's fucking Ted Ginn Jr. Storming out of the press conference isn't a good look, but considering his press conference was separated by a thin strip of fabric from the Broncos' press conference I don't particularly blame him. If I had to listen to dudes brag about how badly they kicked my ass while

Don't Do It
Cody H.

Folks, I tell you every week that you can't play with more than six people on a team. I don't care if you say your extra friend isn't actually playing, or if they showed up late, or whatever excuse you may have. Perception is reality; if you've got more than six people at your table, I and the other quizzers will perceive that you're playing with more than six. This is why I always ask that you write "+6" on your answer sheet so I know who you are, and the prizes for the top three teams can go to those who are eligible. You can win everything else, except for those special gift cards. Which is why when Crop Circle Cock-us took Third this week even after being told
