Sick Lane...Sick
Michael

QUIZ QUIZ QUIZ QUIZ. Lane left me all alone tonight, he was “sick” , if you ask me I think these kids nowadays don't understand a day of hard work. I truly believe Lane pretended to be sick so he could go home and watch that god forsaken show “Shameless”, yes you heard me! Shameless! I’ve never seen it, nor will I ever watch it. Simply based on the merits of every single person I’ve ever met telling me I need to watch Shameless, I will never watch shameless, simply because of the absurd amount of people telling me to watch Shameless, I know that sounds super hipster of me, but I also don't disagree with you on that! SOOOO...on

King Kong! And quiz!
Michael

What's new? Oh, well I saw King kong? King Kong was hands down one of the best giant monster movie in recent years, I really liked Godzilla, but I felt like it was trying way to hard to be some weird arthouse bullshit movie, taking its sweet time to show us the monster and denying us our rightful privilege of seeing a badass monster brawl! This is why I loved King Kong, FUCKING CRAZY BADASS MONSTERS DUELING IT OUT THE WAY GOD TRULY INTENDED FOR US TO WITNESS THIS CRAZINESS! Seriously, go see it. Sam jackson yelling at a monkey and sexy Tom hiddleston showing off his biceps, you can't beat this movie.   Let's

Go Out to 'Get Out'
Lane

If you would have told me when Key and Peele first aired, that one of those funnymen would go on to make an amazingly complex, nuanced film exploring racism in America, I would have probably believed you. Key and Peele is a very nuanced, funny show, duh. But if you would have also told me it would be a fantastic horror film, I may have called BS. And I would obviously be wrong. Get Out is just that proverbial film, and it is also a real film...and it is also a great film. The point is, you all need to see

Did You Just Steve Harvey The Oscars?
Michael

The Academy goes to!....oh wait...oh shit...not La La Land? Yup, we all saw what is possibly the greatest oscar screw up in history happen right before our very eyes. They announced the wrong fucking movie and on top of that, those poor people went on stage and had to give their award back! Sad! Honestly, I wanted Moonlight to win, I loved that movie so much and yes, I also loved La La Land, but moonlight was just a fantastic story about a person having to come to terms with who they are. Still, you can't help but feel pretty devastated for the cast of La La land, to think they had something they didn't and have it taken out right before their eyes. Speaking

Hair...And Back Again
QM Kriegs

  If it weren’t for puns we’d have no funs. What am I to do? I’m not sure, how bout you? I think that most people these days are trying to be the main character in a prince or princess from another world book. I think it has more to do with feeling that we have a destiny than it does with the idea of royalty. It’s hard to come to terms with existence. What’s the purpose of a porpoise? I don’t even think it’s individuality we seek, but value. Maybe that is why money has become our god. It is the only thing in this world that has a defined value, so we praise it as the thing we strive to be. Of course, like all gods, its word is greatly

Happy (Or Not Happy) Valentine's Day!
Lane

Ah, Valentine’s Day. A day to celebrate love, to recognize the beautiful relationship you and your partner have fostered and nurtured. Oh, wait. What if you are single? You may see this holiday as another reminder of your loneliness. Maybe you scroll through your Facebook feed like a minefield, trying to avoid any semi-sentimental post. I should probably write a blog making fun of Valentine’s Day, mocking it’s commercialism, calling it pathetic. But then I might alienate those who are in happy relationships. Why should they feel guilty for wanting to honor the love they feel for another? Shit. This is a tough one...I know! I’ll do both.

Stranger Things With Tom Brady
Michael

I think it's fair to say that Tom Brady had the best night of his life on Sunday! What a hell of a comeback! Seriously, I thought that game was over after the 2nd quarter, like most americans and he must of regained some superhuman energy from either watching that Lady Gaga performance or possibly all the sad “Tom Brady memes” he had to look at. Either way, the patriots came back and kicked some serious ass. I have to give credit where credit is due. SPEAKING OF ANOTHER COMEBACK! Can we please talk about that stranger things trailer?! DEAR GOD LORD ALMIGHTY BABY JESUS DEMIGODS GALORE! I could not be any more excited for it. Seriously, that show is

Fight Night?
Lane

Shooters can be a rowdy place. There have been many a Quiz where, in the thick of football season, Mike and I have had to try to quell, or scream over, the drunken masses. Not to mention the DJ requests I am sure all QM’s battle. No, drunk girl, I don’t care if it is your birthday, I am not going to play ‘One Dance.’ We have a resident boozer who without fail requests we play Prince. Look buddy, we miss him too but he isn’t on Spotify. Last night, he mixed it

Nom Nom Nom Nominations
Michael

So the Oscar nominations have just dropped and I could not be any more excited! Last year as shitty as it was, it was also a very good year for movies! I mean the new star wars, hacksaw ridge, moonlight, La La land and Manchester by the sea. What an intense year for movies! I have to say that La La land is personally one of my favorite movies to come out this year. The music, the dancing and the acting were all so incredible. Moonlight on the other hand was so powerful and moving, it also touched a very taboo subject about sexuality and what it truly means to accept yourself. UGH! This is going to be a tough Oscar race! Well speaking of tough things! On to the quiz! The quizzers

Another Lovely Night Of Quiz
Lane

On Friday, Mike and I strolled on down to The Little theatre. In the wake of the super loud buzz and its many Golden Globes wins, we decided we needed to see La La Land. As we got comfy in seats, the previews ended and a technicolor title slide announced the film would be “Presented In Cinemascope.” The next two-ish hours, director Damien Chazelle took us on a beautiful, jazzy journey. Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone shine in the already bright, over-saturated Los Angeles where the film takes place. A love letter to both the Studio Age and modern Hollywood,

To Meryl Streep and F*** The Rest
Michael

Actors are actors and should stick to actor things, right?? Not so sure how I feel about that idea, here's the thing. Actors are people to, living in this world and more importantly, this country. So why shouldn't they have a voice about what's going on? The guy who works at Bestbuy has just as much a right to voice his opinion as Meryl Streep. People just get upset, because they don't want to see that someone who has power doesn't agree with them, someone doesn't think the way you do on a larger scale. I agree with everything Meryl Streep said and if you don't, that's okay! Its a free country, we are all allowed to feel the way the we

New Year, New Meme
Lane

Well, we made it through folks. 2016 was one hell of a year. I don’t know if it is indicative of the year itself or of our culture, but it was very strange to see a year itself become a meme. This idea that a year can be a sort of embodiment of our anxiety, our ennui, our fears is very interesting. I think it must say something about our collective consciousness, or maybe Harambe’s death was really that seismic. At any rate, it is over and a new year is ahead of us. What is beautiful about New Year’s is that this arbitrary classification of time is universally seen as a fresh start. A time to

Rogue one and Lanes shitty opinion
Michael

Hello everyone! So, before I get anywhere into talking about the quiz, I have to bring up how I recently saw the new Star Wars movie, rogue one. IT WAS MASTERFUL. Holy shit, they did it. They have successfully brought the star wars franchise to the next level. It's not a cheesy, cash in with a bunch of special effects and fun noises. It was a very well written, the characters were fun and engaging, the story, while simple and yes, predictable, was very much heartbreaking. I laughed, I cried, I cheered. It was an epic star wars tale and I cannot wait to see what disney keeps doing with this wonderful franchise. On a sidenote, Lane, my co-host has some opinions about the movie. I will not

A First Time For Everything
QM Mark

Subbing at a new venue is always fun. There's usually a bit of nervous anticipation surrounding an unfamiliar sound system, which is usually quashed as soon as I get to the bar. I get everything plugged in, and give the mic a quick tap just to make sure I have sound, and we're good. Another thing I like about being at a different bar is all the new faces. Now, I'm not completely green behind the ears when it comes to Shooter's, I've been there for Quiz several times, but I don't really know the teams. I mean sure, I recognize a bunch of you, but you're not my weekly Geeks. Either way, it is a lot of fun seeing and working with new faces when the opportunity

I'll Never Listen to a Flute Again
Lane

We all know November (and the ten months before it) sucked, but I am very hopeful for December. Of course we have Christmas and/or Hannukah right around the corner, Rogue One even more right around the corner, not too mention all those Die Hard and Home Alone re-runs. December might not suck, and it started off pretty great. Why do I say this asks the proverbial blog-reader? Well, P.B.R. (hehe), I’ll tell you. This past Friday, December 2nd was the release date of the Hamilton Mixtape and Childish Gambino’s third album Awaken,

Fantastic Quizzes And Where To Play Them
Michael

What a wonderful night at quiz! So this past weekend I was lucky enough to see the new Harry potter movie and I have to say I was thoroughly disappointed! I don't think it had any of the charm of the original and it was just like boring, so were supposed to be following around this weird, quirky shy guy (newt) and we get it, he's weird and quirky, but the movie loves to remind us of this, but yet it never really delves deeper than that. As far a main villian goes, I feel like the typical Hollywood theme as of lately is just "Hey, lets just have someone turn into a giant ball of destruction or a tornado or something." Its very overplayed and I am growing quite tired of it, why
