This is what I get for engaging Politically
Bela Lugosi's Dad

As I type this, I’m on the phone with a democratic pollster who is getting my feelings on various local candidates. It started with a “what are the important issues to you? economy? education?” and a “hey, are you familiar with these people and names? we’re just getting the word out!” Oh, how quickly it all turned into “well THIS candidate supports rights for everyone and getting kids out of schools, and THAT candidate wants to flood City Park and sell 100 days worth of Colorado’s sun to China!”   I see what you’re doing, “independent research institute” guy. I’ve

A Capitol Idea!
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Bulldog! Last night was a bit of a “tournament of champions” among some of our most recently reigning masters of quiz (not to be confused with “Quiz Master” ever). When just a handful of fiercely competitive teams show up, you know you’re in for a good time. Plus, we all have to drink a little bit more. It’s in the bylaws.   Another oft-overlooked provision is that of the raucous laughter during any “I’ll make one letter different and you tell me the new thing” round. Way to hold up your end of the bargain! I, for one, think a mermaid-based version of Girls would be a smash hit. Although,

Denominator? I Hardly Know ‘Er!
Bela Lugosi's Dad

And other classic goofabouts. Welcome to another blogtastic British Bulldog blog! We sure had fun last night, what with all the high-stakes drama of a first place tie (we’ll get to that) and the low-stakes “I Know That Guy” of being able to give a character OR actor name in R5. Don’t get used to that! We hand out freebies every once in a while, but you know damn well that is not the standard.   Indeed, the standard is often more along the lines of R7: “In a World…” Where you kinda sorta know the theme, but the only movie you can think of is MERCURY RISING, so it becomes your default

Songs from the Little Chair
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Kablammo! That's the noise my ego made when I saw my new hosting digs. To be downgraded from a high-top table and stool to roughly gut-level was an attitude check I wasn't quite expecting. I'm a roll-with-the-punches sort of guy, though, so from hereon out, that is my corner office and executive suite. Meetings by appointment only.   Other than that little (intended!) surprise, we had a fun ol' quiz last night, mild gloom and all. We got to learn who in the room is REALLY, REALLY into musicals and who really only knows The Sound of Music. We separated the die-hard Prince fans from

There Will Be No Further Repeats For Question Seven
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Seriously. You abuse it, you lose it. I realize this runs into my preexisting “Rick Astley Above All Else” rule, so this whole thing may be moot.   Less to talk about this week! I started my new job, and it turns out: it’s a job! Nice enough office, good break room, spacious cubicle, friendly coworkers, and fun-times benefits after a 60-day probationary period. All signs point to: it’s a job!   The immeasurable thing is how much better I feel about not being at what shall hereby be known as “the other place.” The other place was sad and stressful.

Face And Or Off
Bela Lugosi's Dad

The slash is very important!   So the interview went OK. You know when an interview goes terribly, and you know when it goes great. This one went OK. Enough so that I’m pretty sure I’ll have a second shot, but for now I have the sheer face-melting excitement of yesterday being my last day. Follow my last, like, eight Instagram posts for the virtual tour!   First off, I was checked out a week ago. All the business about the “Congratulations and goodbye!” rubbed me in the

A Jorb Well Done
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Hey British Bulldog badasses! Welcome back from another killer night of quiz. Lot to get to this week, so let’s dive right in.   Chapter Three: A Jorb Well Done   After last week’s near-encounter with my ex-boss’s ex-boss’s boss (see previous blogs… like all of them, at this point) I had the long-awaited actual encounter with the man we’re just going to call “boss” for simplicity’s sake. Boss invites me into his office to discuss my impending departure, and it really wasn’t so bad! He had a lot

Good News, Everyone!
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Another successful British Bulldog night in the books! A mighty fine crowd as always for a mighty fine—albeit mighty hard—quiz.   SO HERE’S WHAT’S HAPPENING IN MY ENDLESS DAYJOB SAGA:   I quit! At least I started to. Let’s rewind.   I’ve been applying for jobs like a person. Y’know, the kind that has “drive” (see previous blog content for backstory). Right before my last boss quit, I told myself I’d accept any lateral move that wouldn’t lose me money. Some months pass, and

One For My Contrarian Ravers
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Hey British Bulldoggers! Thanks for coming out last night! Great to see some faces we haven’t seen in a while, and always lovely to see you fine folks who are out week after week. Everyone is great! Even Greg!   We’ll get to the quiz in a second, but I first need to get a few things off my chest. Today was the second day with my main boss being out of town (for the week). Typically, this is fine, but with all of those restructuring things I spoke of in a previous blog, there’s a ton of responsibility loaded onto our tiny three-person managerial team. One person covers the brute force “hey, everyone, go do your jobs.”

Behind The Smile
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Woooah, how about another windy Monday at the Bulldog? If you didn’t notice, we had a group tonight I was spending more time with than everyone else (even though you’re all beautiful and wonderful and perfect). Truth was, these were folks from my Day Time Job, and boy howdy did we have things I needed to talk about.   Things like my boss quitting in October, giving two minutes’ notice. Things like nobody replacing my boss, so I was the de-facto leader without de-pay or de-authority. Things like my former boss’s boss taking over and tearing out our foundations. Things like my former boss’s boss

“No, My Dog Is Not Wearing A $700 Scarf” Should Go Without Saying
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Here’s a story that spans the generations for you fine folks at the British Bulldog. Youths, 30-somethings, octogenarians: all the generations! It starts with my wife. For a time, she worked exclusively with elderly hoarders. Yes, like in the show. Only the ones she worked with weren’t so batty all of the time, and only a couple of them hoarded diapers. In fact, 100% of them were sweet folks who just had a hard time letting some things go. To this day, she says it’s the hardest physical and emotional work she’s ever done.   BUT THAT’S NOT THE MAIN POINT OF THE STORY. BUMMER CITY, WERE THAT

Drumpf Lingered Last In Line For Brains
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Goodness gracious! It feels like I’ve been going non-stop for two or three weeks. Plus, and I’m definitely burying the lede here, someone just got shot about a hundred feet from my front door. This is why you pre-write your blogs, kids! Everything I thought I knew about last night’s quiz has gone straight out the window. But let’s try to put a positive spin on things.

Organ. Noun.
Bela Lugosi's Dad

1. Biology - a part of an organism that is typically self-contained and has a specific vital function, such as the heart or liver in humans. Ahem. Hey everyone! Welcome back from Monday! I’m so happy everyone was able to make it out last night to the Bulldog for that raucous good time. While our team count wasn’t huge, our enthusiasm was. Also: number of beers per person. Big number!

Say What You Will About My Mother...
Bela Lugosi's Dad

If that round is to be believed, she’s a giant, tragic mess of a person who probably has bigger issues than a handful of meanie-pantses. Beyond that, I felt the best course of action was to sum tonight’s quiz up in some handy take-away lessons. Who says the learning stops after leaving the British Bulldog?   * It’s difficult for “Samosa” to be an answer in a bar with a wide selection of Pakistani food. Hell, if I’m not mistaken, samosas were on special last night. * Dudes that travel into Denver for Ween probably won’t be offended when you mishear them as coming

I Don't Know Who Victoria Is, But I Think She Dodged A Bullet...

Ah, the time-honored Bachelor Party. The last "boy's night out." Fondly waving adieu to one chapter of life whilst happily anticipating the next. Gathering with your closest chums for a celebration of camaraderie, commitment and the immediate transformation into an entitled, overboozed dickhole. And I'm not even talking about the betrothèd! Whenever a brood of bros gathers to celebrate one bro, you're always looking at a rough time.   WHICH IS WHY I am so thankful for the vast majority of y'all for keeping your cool as they skulked amongst us, desperate to be vital.

In Which Bern Feels The Caucus
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Snowy! I don’t know about y’all, but I had the extreme privilege of having today off from my “normal job” due to the snow. Every time this sort of thing has happened in the past, I’d already made my trek and started working when I heard the word. Usually, I’d wind up finishing the day, if only because I don’t respect myself very much.   But today, my sweet and wonderful boss called me at 5:50 in the morning. Typically, I’d be peeved, but I sprung from my bed with a vigor, and presaged his pronouncement. “What? They’re closing the building? That’s too bad! I’ll let my
