IT'S A SATIRE
Bela Lugosi's Dad

It’s always the quiet days that wind up being rowdy nights at the Bulldog. Spent a half-dozen hours locked away in the office and then rolled out to quiz to have all sorts of friendly abuse hurled around. Especially toward Evan. Shut up, Evan! But that’s the way quiz goes here. Energy gets mirrored until I get sufficiently beered.   We were fortunate enough to have some wild new-ish teams in place to secure some footing. It’s always good to see the relatively-new crew finally snag that win with a cleverly-played Round 8. That’s the stuff that gets a highlight reel on Sports TV.

If Drawing Boobs Got You More Points, I Would Have The High Score
Bela Lugosi's Dad

As a quizmaster, you get subjected to all kinds of bribes and incentives and whatnot, all in the name of some potential “extra” points. I have never given away a bonus point, but I suspect this just comes with the territory. What’s the harm in trying? Sliding a beer across the table, giving an elaborated answer, laughing especially hard at a terrible joke I made… these all happen with some frequency.   But at the British Bulldog, I have the distinct pleasure of having boobs drawn for me. No, it’s never going to net a bonus point, but with the wide variety and artistic style and sheer persistence,

Hungarians do NOT care for Kelly Clarkson
Bela Lugosi's Dad

And we’re back with a vengeance! It’s like everyone read the blog last week and thought, “Hmm, oh yes, I could stand for a quiet evening with a few close chums and varied libations.” It’s as if you inhabited the purest essence of the word “indubitably” and came out the other side chock full of vim.   Hell yeah, say I! That’s the way it is done! We can have a splendid time with just a handful, or we can pack the room to the gills. No difference!   One fun realization I had with the return of our fair Hungarian friends, was that we

Dandy!
Bela Lugosi's Dad

    The south has been catching a lot of well-justified flack recently, with all of that deeply-imbedded institutional racism and discrimination. You know. But I have to say, when you get past all that stuff (and that is the whitest privilegeiest thing I’ve ever written) there is a certain allure to that kind of balmy, languid life.   I had the pleasure of speaking with a man from Louisiana during my day job in customer service. He had two specific questions about a laptop he’d purchased, but we talked about that subject (never straying) for a full 18 minutes on the phone. Dude’s

What's Wet And Hot And Three Months Long?
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Hope you're having a heck of a summer out there, friends! Hope when you're not sweltering under our Big Yellow Death Sphere, you're taking plenty of time to kick back, quiz it up, have a beer with friends, and then binge watch Wet Hot American Summer when it drops at the end of this month. Yes, this is a thing I am super interested in seeing, but I also wouldn't shy away from a little advertising kickback, if David Wain or someone happens to be browsing through the Geeks Who Drink blogs. Speaking of unreasonable stuff: how much fun was last night? I know skilled trainees aren't a rarity at the British Bulldog, but Jillian really owned it! She was there on time, came prepared, asked

Santorum? Damn Near Killed 'Em.
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Literally. So I get it. Quiz tends to lean a little left of middle, and we enjoy having a hee-haw or a joke-a-bout with some of our less-enlightened chums from across the aisle. Trump and Santorum? What better targets, in this day and age. And we're using actual quotes, here, so there's not a lot of room for argument. OR SO I THOUGHT. Enter: Your College Republican Club. Khakis with belts and tucked-in Polo shirts. Non-prescription eyeglasses. The word "Obama" on their tongue, for no particular reason, without them even realizing it. These were those dudes. I would call them "Chad" but that would be an insult to "Chad." Chadwick, maybe. Chadwickerton the Third.

I Need A New Blog Name Gimmick…
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Holy terrible work ethic, Batman! There was a time when I could crank these suckers out. All it would take was a quick premise about a quesadilla or something, and bam: 500 words. These days, I need to rely on cheap meta gimicks, like “here’s a blog about writing a blog.” Gross. I am right there with you on this one. It feels gross.   But it’s a strange impulse, blogging. To reach into the dark, spiraling abyss of the Internets and leave a little piece of yourself out there, devil may care, come what may, Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag.   Now I am a child of the Internet.

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?

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.
