Thank Heaven for Working Sound Systems
theshrew

Thanks for having me at British Bulldog! What an awesome place. Especially if you are losing your voice, as I was, and there are Irish coffees with Jameson, as there were. I've had to shout quiz a time or two in the past, and that would not have worked tonight. Unless you know ASL, there would have been no quiz. My favorite team name tonight was: “This One Time, At Band Camp.” Overheard at a table except then they started talking about other ideas even though I told them I would love that name. Show’s how far my influence goes around here.

Katherine (also responds to Kat) has been a geek who drinks since before she knew it was a thing to be. You'll find her subbing and quiz-master-ing 'round the port of Denver...other interests include every outdoor sport going, and community theatre. If you've played both Kate and Petruchio, you can't help having a nickname like theshrew. On happier notes, her horse Sparky (pictured) is finally with her in CO, which makes her a much happier and more easygoing quizmistress. Lucky you.

Bloom's Taxonomy
Bela Lugosi's Dad

In response to the legend wherein a certain neck-bulging so-and-so allegedly smuggled guns into the oscars in a specially-designed tuxedo, the question was loudly posed: “Why would he do that?” I appreciate your attempt to pull meaning and deeper knowledge out of a 50/50 question, but really, don’t hurt yourself over it! We don’t need much more than rote memorization, or even a good guess. Analysis is higher up the pyramid. WELCOME BACK! It’s tax day, and if yours was anywhere near as taxing as mine has been, you’ll understand that I need to keep this brief. Money! Government! America!   Third

Primer
Bela Lugosi's Dad

GREETINGS, FRIENDS! What an evening we shared. Every week at the British Bulldog, we learn about a brand new Venn Diagram, and which of you fine folks are smack in the middle. Turns out: the Twitz belong in the overlap for Ru Paul’s Drag Race and Marvel superheroes. It’s a chocolate/peanut butter situation that was just lovely to witness.   So how’s your week going already? I’m waist-deep in school ish, having spent the greater portion of last week prepping for an intense panel discussion on Utilizing Social Media in the Academic Library, only to realize, hey, this discussion is only worth like 5% of my final grade,

Robyn
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Holy cowabunga, British Bulldog Batman! What an exciting evening we all experienced! Meteoric highs, fast-take switcharoos in the standings, my bitchin’ jean jacket—last night had all the hallmarks of a Qlassic Quiz (TM). My favorite part is that, at face value, last night’s quiz shouldn’t have been All That. Start and endpoints, novel but not super exciting; Alaska, yawn; Philadelphia, gross. The AMA round was great, but I think we’re all a little too old for Reddit at this point. But that’s not to shit-talk my own quiz! We were rocking from start to finish (two points), because our writers can pull

A Voice For Podcasting
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Thank you, thank you. You’re too kind. Every once in a long while, we get a new team ‘round these parts, and in some rare occasions, those new folks take it upon themselves to offer a kind of compliment. Last night, the one offered was: “Do you have a podcast? Your voice would be great for that!”   At first blush: Thank You!   At second blush, what about radio? What about voice-overs? Or, I don’t know, anything other than a freaking podcast? I mean, I know I don’t do those things, but you couldn’t think that maybe I could have been doing them instead? Instead,

The One Where Jason’s Protestant Upbringing Gets In The Way Of A Funny Blog Title
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Yeah, I know what I quipped on-mic last night. It was just that kind of vibe, you know? The energy was high, we had a handful of new (to us, at least) teams, the gin flowed like water, and the water flowed like wine. All told, it was a Very Good Night.   And when we have nights like that, I tend to get a little looser on the microphone. I tend to encourage the “blue” material from the crowd. And, you know, I tend to make commitments that I totally can’t fulfill the morning after. BUT I APPRECIATE YOU! There are few things better than a well-timed “heckle” (which is why I recommend that Rule Two addendum: fuck

“Papa’s going to buy you a tank full of gas.”
Bela Lugosi's Dad

And just like that, I’m on a government watch list!   Before we get going, I want to say hi to the dude in the green shirt with dirty surfer hair who felt offended when I said “hey, shut the [love] up for a second [so people can hear the audio round].” You are the dude who walked forward, shoulders back, and made a “my heart breaks” motion when I said no offense, but if you’re taking offense, maybe do some self-reflection. I want to document this in the event I’m jumped in the parking lot leaving tonight. I suspect you’re not used to “no.” So hi. Behave better.

A School Daze!
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Ha! Solid pun, Jason. Nice. How you all doin’? Good, I trust after last night’s spectacular Quiz Extravaganza! It’s always a pleasure to spend time at the Bulldog & enjoy a course of Fish, Chips, Gin, Tonic… You get to a point where it’s like: “what even IS a job anyway? This is just for funzies.” O-ho, Jason, you rascal! This is serious business! You can’t wile away the hours alternating between intense transcribing sessions for class and videos of people misspelling things on Yahoo Answers. Not Tuesday evening, at least. One thing I love about the Bulldog over many other bars is the unique crowd. There’s

Borking Awesome!
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Good evening, wonderful quiz-folk! What a slick and polished quiz we had, eh? Time flies when you’re cry-laughing at the Swedish Chef, I guess! After the spirits were consumed, the fish were chipped, and the Simpsons were referenced, we were looking at the end of the night barreling at us. And I had more cover songs, too! Nonetheless, I hope your week is starting well. Mine’s alright! I was genuinely excited for the little snow flurry thing that was happening this afternoon around 5. You know, a winter day. Remember those? It was the right level of chilly, but not windy, and still the sun was just around the corner. It was, dare I say, nice.

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

Welcome back, friends! We had a killer British Bulldog evening last night that seemed to breeze by almost TOO fast.
