Does Thor Sit Around Asgard Listening to MC Hammer?
Jared

So I woke up this morning to see pictures of the patio area at The Half Moon Bay Brewing Company destroyed by a drunk driver.  Fortunately, it happened after close, nobody was hurt, the driver was arrested, and everything will probably be back to normal by next week.  Still, kind of scary.  Other than that, it was a pretty mellow week, but as a person who is heavily involved in Rocky Horror, and seeing as how October is right around the corner, my life is about to get crazy.  My priorities for the next month or so involve 1. Not falling asleep at the wheel.  2.  Getting up on time for the day job.  3.  Having as much fun as possible.

Have You Met My Sisters, Africa and Hold the Line?
Jared

 I'm just going to start off by saying thanks for all the birthday wishes, beers, and fun.  Saw one of my favorite bands, the Subhumans on Friday night.  If you don't know them, pick up a copy of The Day the Country Died, listen to it over and over again, and thank me later.  Saturday night was my actual birthday, and we celebrated at a local Karaoke pub which was a lot of fun.  I got a copy of Dreamscape on dvd, starring the world's greatest actor, Dennis Quaid.  I also got drunk.  Sunday was recovery day, Monday was back to the day job, and then Tuesday as always was the pub quiz at The Half Moon Bay Brewing Company!  So let's

All We Are Is Dust In the Wind, Dude
Jared

Dust.  Wind.  Yes!  Like sands through the Hourglass, so are the days of our lives!  Nothing like a question on Socrates to be able to slip a Bill and Ted's reference into my playlist.  So yeah, this was a fun quiz.   It started with Round 1 (like most quizzes do), but this was an especially difficult round 1.  Clearly, September history is tougher than it sounds.  Round 2 wasn't as bad, since Rick Rubin tends to produce songs by bands you've heard of.  And thank you to whoever stuck Danzig in there.  Can we get a Misfits reunion tour for those of us who live too far away from RiotFest?  Please?  (I feel like Danzig hires

If Pinocchio Was In the X-Men, I Guess Cyclops or Mystique Could Be U2 Songs
Jared

I hope everyone had a good week this last week.  I, like most of the Internet, was upset by the death of Gene Wilder.  Blazing Saddles is still one of my favorite movies of all time.  Speaking of favorite movies of all time, go see Rocky Horror at The Guild in Menlo Park this weekend.  I'll be hosting it, playing Riff Raff, and it's my birthday show!  Oh yeah, my birthday is September 10th, which means next Tuesday will be my birthday quiz night!  If you want to buy me a present, I like beer.  I promise to not be so drunk I can't properly read questions.   Anyway, this was a fun week for Geeks Who Drink at The

Good Luck With All the Hot Blondes and Free Healthcare, Evan!
Jared

Yesterday was a day, I'll tell you that much.  I went from the day job to a private Geeks Who Drink event at Google to home for about 15 minutes to leave for Geeks Who Drink at The Half Moon Bay Brewing Company.  We had a going away toast for Evan of Book Hockey fame who is moving to Sweden for five years.  We had fourteen teams competing for prizes and bragging rights.  We had a first time winner this week as well!  So yeah, it was exhausting, but well worth it!

If You're Smart, You Leave Out the First Name
Jared

Today is the first day of school.  For my day job, I teach math, and school started today.  As much as I enjoy sleeping in and generally not doing much of anything, it's kind of nice to be back at the day job.  Although this was a rough weekend to make it back to work from.  My Rocky Horror cast had two road shows this weekend, one in Fremont and one in Modesto.  Lots of fun, but not a lot of sleep.  Such is life.  Anyway, I'm on my prep period and I'm already prepared, so I have time to write about last night's quiz. It was a fun one at The Half Moon Bay Brewing Company.  Sixteen teams competed, which means everyone fit

Let's Take a Trip To the Janet Yellen Mountains
Jared

Let's talk about the number 22.  Its prime factorization is 2 times 11.  In base 16, it's 16.  It's 20 less than the answer to life, the universe, and everything.  In an Iron Maiden song, it's the address on Acacia Avenue where you'd find a certain harlot.  And it's the number of teams we had playing Geeks Who Drink last night at The Half Moon Bay Brewing Company!  And holy crap, that was a lot! It was a fun quiz, and it started off easy for you.  Many of you did pretty well on the Cockney rhyming countries round, and even the music round didn't destroy a lot of your chances.  The tri-force round

I Also Link My Oxen Team With Flapjacks
Jared

And now I want pancakes.  Thanks a lot.  Anyway, it's been a busy week for me.  My Rocky Horror cast had a show in SF on Saturday, and we're starting to gear up for October.  Something about Halloween makes everyone want to see Rocky Horror, so all of a sudden I have all sorts of travel plans.  Luckily, Tuesday night Rocky Horror is rarely a thing, so I shouldn't have to host Geeks Who Drink while dressed as Riff Raff anytime soon. We had a fun quiz this week.  The first two rounds (even the music round!) went pretty well for you guys, but then the Spielberg round kicked you in the ass.  I'm not even sure if he did the second

Flash Gordon Star Wars featuring Han the Merciless!
Jared

 All right, so some of you are too young to remember Flash Gordon and his arch-enemy, Ming the Merciless.  Fortunately, you were all young enough to put aside your love for the DNC to come out to quiz last night.  Sixteen teams last night.  Sixteen!  That's two to the fourth for all you math nerds.  Anyway, it was a lot.  Also, on a complete side note:  Go see the AbFab movie.  And if you don't know what AbFab is, google that shit and watch it.  If you don't know what google is, bing that?  No, that doesn't work at all. Anyway, on to the quiz.  We had one.  I know because it was Tuesday, and that means

Wake Me Up Before Yugoslavia
Jared

Here's something you might not know about me.  I was born and raised in Modesto.  Yes, Modesto.  Also known as Moodesto, because of all the cows.  Also known as Methdesto, probably for reasons I don't understand.  It wasn't a great place, but it wasn't terrible.  On one hand, we had George Lucas and Jeremy Renner.  On the other hand, we had Gary Condit and Scott Peterson.  Anyway, I spend as much time as I can actively avoiding it, especially during the summer.  Until this last weekend, when I had the opportunity to perform Rocky Horror there.  Sold out show, great crowd, and a whole lot of fun.  Still, weird being

I Need to Renew My Subscription to the Washington General Mills
Jared

It's been a busy week since the last quiz, so I'll recap it with as few words as possible.  Beer.  JFA.  Beer.  Karaoke.  Beer.  Cast Party.  No beer.  Day job.  Yep, that just about did it.  I think I said beer twice.  I'm not sure.  Anyway, I finally saw JFA live and it was great. So then we had a pub quiz.  We had a record (for the HMB Brewing Company) setting number of teams at fifteen!  We had a bit of a difficult time understanding the Duh! round, as evidenced by how long it took to come up with Bill Clinton's age.  Maybe if your homework had been to watch Bill and Ted's,

Can Axl Rose Sue Me For Playing a GNR Song During a Question About "The Blob"?
Jared

This was a week.  That's for sure.  It was busy, it was fun, it was sad, it was a bit of everything.  On Saturday, it was the memorial for quiz regular Sean "Goofy" Patton.  It was a fitting tribute to him, and we will all miss his quick wit and his trivia skills.  Saturday night was a performance of the Rocky Horror Picture Show in his honor as well.  And then Monday was America's birthday.  When I'm off from the day job on America's birthday, I like to celebrate America.  And I did so by drinking all of its beers.  Well, 2 tall boys of its beers.  I'm not sure who drinks Budweiser or Pabst on the regular, but I don't.

All The Small Things: A Circumcision Theme Song
Jared

It was a bit of a rough week for me this week.  Saturday night, we had our monthly screening of Rocky Horror in San Francisco, and at the bar before the show, we got word that cast member and Geeks Who Drink regular, Sean "Goofy" Patton passed away.  We decided that in the words of the late, great Freddie Mercury, the show must go on, and it did, but it was a tough one to get through.  He was one of the nicest guys I've ever met, and it was nice of everyone at The Half Moon Bay Brewing Company to drink a toast in his honor.  The quiz was a tough one this week.  Nobody scored above 5 in the multiple

My Wife Calls My Member The Little Shop of Horrors
Jared

Dick jokes.  Lots of dick jokes.  But since that didn't happen until Round 7, let's wait a bit.  Last weekend was Father's Day.  I have two kids who are old enough to drink.  This happens with teenage pregnancy...you grow up together and they're old enough to drink when you're still pretty young.  I don't recommend it, but it doesn't always work out as bad as people say it does.  Anyway, we drank beer as a family and finally watched Zoolander 2.  Not quite as good as the original, but not the least bit disappointing.  All in all, a pretty good day.

How Sweet It Is To Beloved By Toni Morrison
Jared

Sometimes there's no quiz like last week and everybody is bored on Tuesday nights.  I wasn't.  I went to L.A. to meet up with several friends that I hadn't seen in a long time, since people apparently find L.A. cheaper than the Bay Area.  Or closer to Disneyland.  Take your pick.  Either way, it was a nice week off for me, but don't worry, that won't happen again until the next Election Day in November.  And depending on how that goes, I may be at the Brewing Company drinking that night anyway. But anyway, we were back at The Half Moon Bay Brewing Company last night for Geeks Who Drink.  There were some

Taarna the Tarakian Did Not Ride a Luck Dragon
Jared

Well, it should have been a three day weekend last weekend, but since my day job is over until August 17th, it's more like an 83 day weekend.  And I'm okay with that.  It was a good start to summer break.  Did Rocky Horror in SF on Saturday night.  Going back there this Friday for SF DocFest, because they're showing a documentary that I'm in called Rocky Horror Saved My Life.  Should be fun.   Next week there's no quiz due to the primary elections.  Really.  Apparently they get pretty political at the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company and are giving us the week off for it.  So I'm heading to Los Angeles to catch
