Play it, Sam. Play “Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)”
Bela Lugosi's Dad

  Ah, the glorious life of a quizmaster! The cheers (and jeers!) of an appreciative crowd of like-minded doofuses. The deep camaraderie you feel when you get to say hey to a team you knew once, in a different time, at a different bar. The exhilaration of putting your foot down and saying, no, GLAD is not the same as GLAAD. It is a life of internal riches, and one I treasure dearly. But then!, the life of the dayjob wageslave comes fewer than 10 hours afterward. You know, that thing where it turns out three people were laid off before 10 a.m., and then the head honchos throw a meeting to tell the remaining employees how three people were

Roses, Violets, etc.
Bela Lugosi's Dad

We’re in a desert climate, people!   Ahem. OK. It’s just not super practical. That’s not to say I’m a hater on Valentines traditions. I get that the day is a crazy corporate cash-grab, but if I’m able to sneak into my wife’s office 30 minutes before quiz and leave some CLIMATE-APPROPRIATE plants and flowers so that she’ll be confused & amused (my wheelhouse) the next day, I’m totally going to do that! That wasn’t even a “humble” brag. That was a straight up brag. And guess what? The mission was accomplished. No fewer than 15 minutes after I dropped her at the office this

A Night of Wonder and Discovery
Linda

Hello fine folk! I'm Linda, aka "Not Jason". Last night was a delightful journey into the world of quiz. Did we learn stuff? Yessiree! Did we learn more about each other than we probably wanted to? Yeah...a bit. Did we have a great time! Obviously! It was a delight for me to come out and hang out with you people while Jason was out doing...something. Probably not getting arrested, but who knows for sure. Here are some discoveries that I made last night! - Team Chub Rub played Hangman on the back of one of their answer sheets last night and someone used the phrase "poop waffle" I am fascinated and a little bit concerned. - A group of friends had to split into

Linda quizzed for a while, but her brand of oddly specific knowledge (Rockies baseball, insipid romantic comedies, and all things snark) was less conducive to quizzing and more conducive to quizmaster-ing.

Now here she is. And here you are. We're all here together. How delightful.

"To Win, and Perhaps to Play!"
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Ever have a weekend that just consumes all of your mental aptitude and leaves your head a hollow, echoing gourd? The kind where you are just SO DRAINED you can’t even form sentences you’ve been saying every week for three-plus years? The kind where you haven’t even had your Gin & Tonic yet, but you feel like you’re stumbling through Auld Lang Syne? Yeah. Hey everyone. Welcome. It was an intellectually-challenging weekend, to say the least. Plus, I had class!   That’s the kind of topical zinger I was incapable of making last night.   So yeah, hey, welcome back!

Not Harvard, Though
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Goodness gracious! We had some fun last night, no? It’s always a good time when we can tune into some wacky audio rounds (great feedback on R7!) and tune out the screaming noise in our news media, Facebook feed, minds, etc. It’s always wonderful to meet up with such great people (you all!) and focus on what really matters: who is the smartest among us, based on a not-at-all random sampling of quiz questions. That’s the America I love.   AND IT HAS BEEN A CRAZY WEEK. I won’t bore you with the news stuff—you have that part down, I’m sure. Instead, here’s what’s going on in my world of library

“We’re not the best people, but we’re not the worst. Graduate students are the worst.”
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Well, everyone. Here it is. It’s been looming over my life for damn-near a decade, but now it’s happening. Last Friday, I was accepted into grad school for library science. My semester starts Wednesday. Am I a little freaked out? Yep. Am I also more at-home and zenned out in anticipation of my upcoming experience? Hell yeah!   This will have little effect on your quiz experience—have no fear! I suspect I’ll need my Monday evenings of nerdebauchery (patent pending) more than ever. However, I suspect there will be a few minor changes.   First: I will expect any quotes or references

SECRET KNOWLEDGE INSIDE!
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Welcome back, friends! We had a killer British Bulldog evening last night that seemed to breeze by almost TOO fast. Thanks to the help of Quizmaster In Training DeAnna, we soared even higher and further than expected, and I would challenge the Gods themselves to smite this quiz down! Be sure to check her out at [venue redacted; keep coming to my quiz dinguses. dingees? dingi???] because I’m sure she’ll be a killer QM before any of us realize… and by that point, it will be too late.   ANYWHO, a big part of running a training night is letting your trainee in on some INSIDER TIPZ.

My Sexual Awakening in a Toronto Revolving Restaurant Circa 1995
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Let’s get the title out of the way. Short version: a young server tripped and nearly dropped my family's plate of poutine. Canadians being the apologetic folks they are, and although she hadn't done anything wrong, she was quick to blurt out a "sore-y." And just like that, I understood love and lust. All of those strange and unheeded spoilers from books with awkward titles like "What's Happening To My Body? A Book for Boys" clicked into their rightful places, and I was henceforth a man. Mazel tov, Jason.    Suffice it to say, I was mega-bummed that the word never made an appearance in

“Jackie From Real Housewives Melbourne Just Liked My Photo Of You In Your Onesie”
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Picture me, if you can. I’m sitting on a couch wearing Christmas Chewbacca Pajamas. That is to say they were a Christmas gift and not Christmas-themed Chewbacca. My equally-fuzzy dog is next to me. We are pretty much posing for the photo. Click. Captured for eternity and stored on the glorious Internet for all to behold. Got it? Hold that for a sec. Picture me. Should be easier now. I’m sitting at the British Bulldog, wearing human clothes. That is to say, I am dressed normally; I’m not wearing some kind of “man suit,” Earthlings. I’m just finishing our second break of the night, and inputting the scores for

A Thoughtful and Balanced Debate on the Subject of Taterz
Bela Lugosi's Dad

HOLY COW! We haven’t had a crowd like this in a hot minute. I’m glad to see I haven’t gotten totally lazy and I can still bust out a rad quiz with higher-than-expected attendance. It’s a good feeling. Also good feelings? So many positive, reinforcing questions about Alan Thicke (may he rest in peace)! An extra 16-point round (may your scores rest in peace)! Danny Elfman (may Oingo Boingo rest in peace)! This would have been a great quiz no matter the attendance, but I’m glad you all showed up as we stare down this pre-holiday non-week thing. Isn’t that the strangest phenomenon? Both my wife and I experienced

Hotel Rwanda!! :)
Bela Lugosi's Dad

I'm almost certain that emoticon has never been paired with that movie title. ALMOST certain. Furthermore, the smiley face was created using two exclamation points. That's gotta be a first in humanity. So congrats, Debaterz 4 Taterz! You get last night's British Bulldog Award For Tasteful Creativity! It exists in your heart, slowly eating at you over the course of decades and only revealing itself when you think about Hotel Rwanda! So it goes! Last night was a whole bunch o' fun, with a handful of new competitors, some sports games that never really got in the way of the quiz, and one of

For the Holidays, I Got Everyone Ringtones!!!
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Ah, flutes. And recorders, I think. And did I sense a piccolo in there, too? Boy-howdy were they shitty! When an audio round gets the normies all riled, I know we’re doing something right. Take that, top-siders!   So aside from awful flute renditions of mostly-awful songs, I have precious little to talk about. OH WAIT, THAT’S A LIE. Geek Bowl XI is happening, 2017, Seattle. You’ve seen the modal lightbox pop-intos on this very website, so I’m sure you’re familiar by now! It’s coming up quickly, and, golly, it just seems like a magical time. Last year was in Denver, sure, but let’s all take a vacation

Hank You For Being A Friend
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Now that we're on the other side of Hanksgiving, it feels like things are starting to calm down a little. We got through any family pleasantries we needed to, we ate too much rich and salty food, we drank too much brandless red wine (can you tell we're using the royal "we" at this point?), and we're finally starting to feel a little bit normal again. Right?    Nah, we're just acclimating. Things are messed up for reals. But that's what makes the British Bulldog so special: for a couple hours every Monday we get to blow off some steam and crack wise with killer Indian food puns! Honestly, I was giggling about "Naan" all day.

I'm Rebooting Superman Just To Cast Nathan Lane as Lex Luthor
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Holy wowie-zowie, everyone! Thanks for coming out last night to the Bulldog for what turned into a fun-filled quiz extravaganza. And say what you will about the Twitz--I'm sure I've said plenty--a hundred points is a pretty impressive accomplishment. Kudos! But we'll get to that.   First, how's your week been? Mine's been alright. Between preparing for family fracases and fricassees and digging that bunker in my backyard, I've scarcely had the time to get out and enjoy that smooth 80 degree November weather we were having up until it snowed all day and melted immediately. So, color me tuckered! That lack of attention is probably what led me to the British Bulldog

It's Britney Betch
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Well that happened. Maybe don’t read last week’s blog. Maybe don’t read any other blog from before then, either. We’re living in a totally different world at this point, and… welp. Let’s just say I’m expecting historians in a hundred years to divide things in “before” and “after” categories. Guess it’s about time for me to actually play some Robyn? I don’t know what to think.   OH WAIT, YES I DO. We had a crazy-fun quiz, rich in catharsis, quizzer-engagement and Britney Spears cover songs. We shook things up a bit from a procedural standpoint,

Gin & Sojuice
Bela Lugosi's Dad

I don’t know about youse guise, but I’m kind of on the edge of my couch right now after a day of work spent refreshing NPR.org and Reddit, waiting to see what new hell was emerging. Election fatigue like a mother trucker. Yes, we had a crazy fun night last night with a wicked hard R8, and yes it was lovely to see some friendly faces who have been elsewhere living life on Mondays.   But holy shit am I stressed out right now. I was finally able to sit down and pour a tall tumbler of Rittenhouse (100 proof, y’all), and judging by Florida (fuckin’ Florida) I will need it and a few more.
