BREAKIN' 2: ELECTRIC BOOGALOO is a SAINT!
Bela Lugosi's Dad

I’m breaking (breakin’) a personal rule here in that I will now immediately address the title of this blog. We had a whole round about shitty movie sequels. A WHOLE ROUND. That was the idea. There was a good movie, but the ones that followed were total trash. Yes, like ANCHORMAN. Yes, like SILENCE OF THE LAMBS.   In addition, we must acknowledge the BREAKIN’ series of cinema, the sequel to which is titled ELECTRIC FUCKING BOOGALOO. There is no universe where that movie is worse than the original, and I am deeply, terribly disappointed that some of you think we live there. Who hurt you? Was it Ice-T? Is this some ill-conceived

The Place Between the Pokestops
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Come, friends, and hear the tale of a magical realm: one of monsters and the pockets in which they reside. There is a place, within the majestic British Bulldog, where miracles occur. When the sun begins to set and a faint Air Conditioned breeze whispers through the tables and booths, roughly twenty-five minutes before quiz time, if you angle your phone just right you can reach BOTH of the Pokestops at Bar Bar and Urban Peak.   Surely, this will be a story passed through the generations. Mothers will whisper it to their babies before bedtime. Fathers will clap their chums on the shoulder and give a wry nod to the time they

“Oh my god, are you Donald Glover?” “Call me Al.”
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Boy howdy! Good Bulldog night, everyone. Great quiz, swell folks, and it wasn’t blistering hot! I’d call that a winning situation all around. And yeah, it was a little harder than last week, but at least I didn’t make you spell “scherenschnitte” for your bonus beer…   It’s a busy week for me, though. Not only will I be hosting the upcoming 30 Rock Quiz (you’re on the website! I don’t need to link anything), I’ve also had to dust off some of my InDesign and Photoshop skillz (emphatically spelled with a Z, autocorrect and spell-check be damned) to try to expand my prospects in that

Like Riding A Unicycle Uphill In A Blizzard
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Welcome back, everyone! We endured a couple weeks of quizless soccer hell, but now we’re back and stronger than ever! EVIDENCE: the close-as-hell game we had going last night. If that wasn’t a sign of y’all doing quiz pushups for the past two weeks, I don’t know what is. We all had a fierce quiz jones and it’s great to have that itch finally scratched.   And with THIS QUIZ, too! What a goodie bag of delights. I don’t think anyone scored lower than an 8 in the Visual Round, and only one team scored higher than 8 in R8. Highs and lows! Plus, all of those *delightful* Jesusy parody songs made for a wild

IT'S THE LIGHTING, DAMNIT!
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Hoo-doggie! Look what turned into a fun li’l quiz night? I’m always pleased when we can pull in the Sports Fan Folks to join our strange little questions game, and even more pleased when they get it so thoroughly that they start reusing dummy answers when they just don’t know the answer. That is why I hereby anoint the last Monday of May to be “Ja Rule Memorial Day.” Surely there isn’t anything similarly-named on that day of the year.   Sidenote. One of the first recommended searches when you type “Ja Rule” into Google is “Ja Rule Net Worth.” Turns out it’s about $5 million.

Ceci n’est pas un blog
Bela Lugosi's Dad

When was the last time you saw Shorts, do you imagine? Not, like, the garment. The person. If you’ve spent any amount of time on or around Colfax, you know the man I’m talking about. Well guess what, everyone! We all goto to hang out with him last night! He was the one yelling from the end of the bar, making sure as many people as possible saw his “Mama Tried” tattoo. Also, that Bono tattoo everyone thought was George Michael? Shorts.   After everyone had gone, he confided in me that he was going to walk home and kick everything he didn’t agree with. Sometimes I miss the dives on Colfax. This was not one of

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
