Pretty Sure I've Had This Dream Before..
Bela Lugosi's Dad

And we’re back! Glad to be here at the British Bulldog for Monday night quiz. Last week we took off due to “soccer” (sounds made-up), but we came back in something approximating force this week, for all sorts of classic quiz components, like: adorable children bewildered at 1980s/1990s technology; topical team names (yay gay!); drawings of boobs; and one drunk guy who was on the verge of wrecking everything when we had some well-timed barstaff intervention.   It was a quiz! And I missed you all more than you could possibly realize. For real. Yeah, I had a good Monday off—dinner with the folks,

All I Ever Wanted
Bela Lugosi's Dad

So. I know I dropped this last week, but this week I’ve had enough time to reflect. It’s real. Realsies. Truth fact. I’m totes married, y’all. Like offish. Signed and shit. We got back from Belize today (technically). Honeymoons and junk.   Still getting over all that. Sheesh! A few things:   The word “wife.” I was weirded out by “fiancee” but not like this. She took my name. WEIRD. I overheard her reference that while placing an order for a calzone delivery, and I straight up started crying. A whole bunch. We did an Instagram hashtag

Soccer And Little Else
Bela Lugosi's Dad

For a training night, this was a weird one. We had Larry and myself here, right on time, as we are supposed to do. Lo and behold, there are about 150 raving, rabid, soccer hooligans (there were chants of “USA USA USA!” if you were wondering) and little space for quizzin’. However, it’s funny how little interest in bars and actual games sports fans have once their sport of choice has been completed. Two-thirds of that group bailed, but those who remained were hard-hitters. Suffice it to say: good quiz.   Oh. But yeah. I glossed over that trainee thing. Typically, trainees are sent to Activia-level regular quizzes.

I Tie For All Occasions
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Ties!   Swell game, chaps. We were hell of tied right up until the very end, and then your second place teams duked it out, with nary a point betwixt. Seriously, yo. Look at that score sheet. It was close, close, close right until the end. Hot dang. Woof. Emoji.   This is a thing I’ve used as blog filler in the past, but by next quiz, I will be married. Like legally-bound married because my friend got ordained in the church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster and he signed a piece of paper married. Like to a human woman who agreed to this madness married. Like surrounded by loving

It's Now Or Never
Bela Lugosi's Dad

So I know a lot of y’all head out almost immediately after quiz, and I can dig it. It’s 10, give or take a few minutes, and you’re looking to get home, to sleep, to et cetera. Y’all gotta work tomorrow. I’m in the same boat! But a thing you might not realize is the jukebox gets taken over by total weirdos JUST AS SOON AS YOU LEAVE. Tonight, we got an ear-blast-full of Bon Jovi. It’s My Life, everyone, and this is what my Monday evenings look like.   I ain’t gonna live forever, and certainly not, at this rate.    Before that, we got

WARP DRIVE
Bela Lugosi's Dad

  Wooaaah! And we’re back! There’s a funny fast forward that’s been happening ever since I got (1) Engaged and (2) Promoted. I can’t seem to hold onto a day or an evening for the life of me, and I find myself nights later being like: “Oh yeah. You have a quiz that demands blogging.” It’s nothing personal, really, it’s entirely me trying to balance a handful of obligations and also have the audacity to assume I’m the only person who has ever gone through this. The sheer gall!    Seriously, though. That wedding is impendin’. And the new job is demandin’.

Hello And Good Evening
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Monday, Monday, Monday… where have you been all my life?   It’s a splendid thing to have good help, and I’ve never been at a loss for good trainees at the Bulldog. They come in, I make them do all the heavy lifting, I sit at the bar drinking free beers and “listening.” It’s a sweet gig if you can get it. However, it does have a drawback, which is forgetting that I have a damn job to do, which includes writing a fully coherent and partially cohesive blog, generally within a window of about 24 hours.    Whoopsies, dudes. The simplicity of

Old-Timey Blog From The Future!
Bela Lugosi's Dad

As I write this, we’re experiencing some blog migration, some website tweakage, CMS overhaulin’, whatnot. You know: improvements for the future! It’s an exciting time to be alive and a Quizmaster, but at the same time change is terrible and I fear it. So I have to assume that the future has terrible things in store for me with the advent of this new website blog tool.    So with that paranoia in mind, here are some of the awful things that I guarantee will happen as soon as this thing is unveiled:   1.

What unit of measurement is that?
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Boo this man! We’re over here, busting our chops, and this guy is expecting us to get GOULD? I mean “gold” is in there, but come on! FURTHERMORE, you’re going to not count people dying of plagues and diseases and dysenteries and such? What gives! I mean Baltimore is literally on fire right now, and I don’t have the tools or the outlets to express my frustration with watching one of the great cities crumble under the weight of incompatibility between citizens and their police state.  SHAME, SHAME, QUIZMASTER. So if my Facebook feed is any indication, everyone is to blame and because there are too many sides to

EMBARRASSMENT CITY!
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Last week, I was running this blog thing like I didn’t give a flip, and the truth is I do not typically give a flip. That is, until it knocks on the door of my real life and I have to endure Consequences for my actions. Yes, that’s right everyone, last week I was caught: stealing jokes from my own blog to repeat in person with my human fiancee. TOTES EMBARRASSING.  I was trotting out the ol’ “chemistry teacher 3.2 beer” whatever when describing a thing, and I got way interrupted with “like in your blog?” Now, I’m not one to object to a person reading my word-things. IN FACT, quite the opposite. I’d rather

The Beatles?
Bela Lugosi's Dad

COOL NIGHT, FRIENDS. And to think it started as a WEIRD NIGHT, FRIENDS. The very first person I saw when entering the British Bulldog was the CEO for my other place of employment. He was leaving, I held the door, and for some reason, we both pretended this was totally cool and a normal thing that could happen. But then I got over that feeling of “just saw your high school chemistry teacher buying a microwave dinner and a six-pack of 3.2 beer” as we got into the quiz, and boy howdy… It’s a rare night when a new game is invented in the middle of the existing game, but it’s a delight to behold. Tonight, that

It's Not Entirely Racist Because Raven Symone Was In Empire
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Cutthroat end to tonight’s quiz, everybody. After eight rounds, there wasn’t a huge margin between the winners and the non-winners. That’s especially rare in a night boasting three 16-point rounds, but everyone kinda blew it for R3. That’s so Raven of you. So I don’t know what you do during your work day, but in my job (at that Matt Damon movie, but without all the “hunting”) I’ve taken to collecting customer service complaint e-mails and adding line breaks. This leads to something resembling found poetry, in a format I’ve taken to calling “Good William Carlos Williams” because I think I’m

In Which I Theorize An 8-Bit Cheers Videogame
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Cliff Clavin would be the final boss, I think. So how about that for a quiz! I basiclly lost track of time due to the super-heroics exerted by Joe The Trainee. Seriously, between the Round 3 standings and the Round 8 answers, I was superfluous. Sure, I scored a couple answer sheets and wandered awkwardly near the QM station, but other than that, I had zilch to input during the latter half of the quiz. He'll be at Historians starting next week; if you choose to go there instead, I will totally understand. That said, please come back to the British Bulldog next week! It was looking to be one of our more cozy quizzes until six teams

Ove droge nisu moje.
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Holy Monday, everybody! That was one of the bigger quizzes in recent memory at the British Bulldog, and all, but hey shut up for a second, I have some news that may be already known (I haven’t checked the transcripts) and may be completely irrelevant. I’m getting married in June. YEAH, I KNOW. And while the impendingness of it all is kind of dawning on me, it’s been pretty low-stress so far. But! We had a team tonight from Hungary (one of several eastern European countries in which we’ll be honeymooning) and that made me jump to Ljubljana, wherein I done proposed that marriage idea in the first place!  FIRST OF ALL,

Val Kilmer
Bela Lugosi's Dad

My favorite thing of tonight wasn’t having a killer trainee. It wasn’t getting to play a bunch of Malcolm in the Middle clips. No, it was the revelation that there is a Val Kilmer cover of “After the Gold Rush,” and by golly, is it terrible. Stephanie brings up a good point, since training is continuing: this song is made all the more memorable by the fact that the only clip we could find is some kind of domestic violence YouTube PSA. In lieu of a proper blog, where I would normally whine about my sunburn, talk about the crazy fast food junk I ate for lunch, or bemoan some jerk bag who shouted answers, let us enjoy the comments section of Val Kilmer’s

Vagina.
Bela Lugosi's Dad

There. Get over it. Yeah, I’m blushing while I’m writing this. Get over that, too. Tonight we talked female anatomy, teeth, toothy vaginas, et cetera, et cetera. I, for one, couldn’t be more comfortable with everything that’s happening here. My first impulse is to be super defensive about my adventures in blushing, citing something along the lines of protestant repression. That’s a classic. HOWEVER, that makes me feel wildly misogynistic—why you gotta blush while talking vagina, bro? You mysoggin’ right now, dude? Bro-dude. You wrote your thesis on Tillie Olsen. So no is the resounding answer. I’m not mysoggin’,
