I Don't Know Who Victoria Is, But I Think She Dodged A Bullet...
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Ah, the time-honored Bachelor Party. The last "boy's night out." Fondly waving adieu to one chapter of life whilst happily anticipating the next. Gathering with your closest chums for a celebration of camaraderie, commitment and the immediate transformation into an entitled, overboozed dickhole. And I'm not even talking about the betrothèd! Whenever a brood of bros gathers to celebrate one bro, you're always looking at a rough time.   WHICH IS WHY I am so thankful for the vast majority of y'all for keeping your cool as they skulked amongst us, desperate to be vital. And that's why I had to be hesitant to give them any attention: a Bachelor Party Dude (henceforth

In Which Bern Feels The Caucus
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Snowy! I don’t know about y’all, but I had the extreme privilege of having today off from my “normal job” due to the snow. Every time this sort of thing has happened in the past, I’d already made my trek and started working when I heard the word. Usually, I’d wind up finishing the day, if only because I don’t respect myself very much.   But today, my sweet and wonderful boss called me at 5:50 in the morning. Typically, I’d be peeved, but I sprung from my bed with a vigor, and presaged his pronouncement. “What? They’re closing the building? That’s too bad! I’ll let my

Fracking: the Cause of and Solution to all Life’s Problems
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Let’s get it out of the way. Here are some of the things that DDF could have meant instead of Drug and Disease Free. - Double D Female- Drunk and Dirty Female (I’m sensing a pattern)- Don’t Date Fascists (good advice, actually)- Dungeons and Dragons Fan (my personal favorite) So you see! Any or all of the above DDFs may be out there, and just because they’re DDF doesn’t mean they’re not DTF, and it doesn’t mean that they are. You need to talk about it first. That’s where communication comes in! It’s all about learning your drunk and dirty anti-fascist nerd in the wide world

Note To Self: Don’t Say A Damn Word About Bill Murray
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Too soon. All of it. You were absolutely correct each time you chastised me. It was too soon for Bowie. It was too soon for Rickman. And I was callous about it. But I like to think anything that was said last night was FAR MORE FORGIVABLE than the things I said immediately preceding each beloved icon’s death. Come on a trip, friends, and be prepared to not like me anymore. Scene: a record store. The day before Bowie died. I go in with the express purpose of buying Blackstar, the well-acclaimed, number one record that is now even more-well-acclaimed. I’ve been a Bowie fan since I was old enough to pick my own music. I listen to Station

You Remind Me Of The Quiz...
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Hey Monday Party People! Thanks for turning out and not giving me hell for playing so many David Bowie songs. It’s my only coping mechanism. We’re doing alright. ALSO, thanks are due to Linda, who filled in for me last week. There was no screamingly negative feedback, so I’ll call it a success! Y’all know that I don’t like missing Bulldog quizzes unless I’m hunched over in the bathroom for any reason, or spending obscene amounts of money on a couple (admittedly worth it) chunks of beef in honor of my spouse’s birth. About once a year for either of ‘em. Thanks to YOU quizzers for treating Linda so

This is a Blog
Polka Dots and Boobs

This is a blog to celebrate the hospitality of the British Bulldog. You guys were so great and welcoming for the understandably awkward experience of subbing. You guys know Jason. You love Jason. You're used to Jason's particular style of bad jokes and slightly questionable humor. But nevertheless, you opened up your arms and welcomed me into your home to make my own bad jokes and get ever-so-slightly tipsy. Thank you for being rad and applauding me before I ever even did anything, that's a morale boost and stuff. I hope I get another opportunity to host for you sometime in the future. I don't want Jason to get sick or anything (or do I?) I just...I like you guys, okay?

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.

Pure Applesauce.
Bela Lugosi's Dad

This may be the first time someone’s started a blog this way, but I really don’t care how you feel about Coheed and Cambria. There, I’ve said it. They are big Rush-biting goofs, to be sure, but I especially enjoyed their prog metal sensibilities in those days where I kept my hair much longer and my wardrobe was 90% band t-shirts, even counting pants, socks and under-wears. Now here’s why I’m making this semi-embarrassing confession. Back in June, Justice Antonin Scalia said some whack-a-doo nonsense about (OPINION INCOMING) some pretty solid decisions. I don’t think it’s crazy-talk to say the Affordable

And They're Off!
Bela Lugosi's Dad

What a neat little speedy quiz we had! It had all the Big Stuff: big ups, small downs, half-hearted heckling, pithy rejoinders, a tight race for the top three, a tighter race for the bottom three, in and out in one hour fifty. Not. Too. Shabby. Plus, since it’s Christmas week, everyone was a little merry. Just a little. Whether or not you celebrate, you were merry. Don’t deny it. You cried at Where the Red Fern Grows and you were merry. Deal with it.   And how could you avoid it! We had a bloody candelabra! That’s not a British-ism either; there was literally a Hallowe’en plastic light-up candelabra

Of Cats, Sams, and Big Poppas
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Holy snow day, Bulldog! I hope you’ve had a fun and productive time on this wintry Denver day. I definitely felt something in the air last night as we were throwing back Hibernations and acknowledging that that Lostprophets guy was totally a rapist. I feel like that got glossed-over amidst my Non-Mr.-T persona and the complicated classifications of random symptoms, procedures, diagnoses, etc. But for real. I, personally, spent this day half at work. I, along with many of my subordinates and coworkers, called the “inclement weather hotline” this morning, only to hear the following. “For today, November 27, headquarters will

TOO SOON!
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Welcome to another round of the increasingly rowdy British Bulldog! Used to be, this was the quiz I’d direct people toward when they’re looking for a nice, quiet, cordial evening of The Gentle Sport Of Quiz. Everyone wearing formal attire. Sipping Armagnac by a wood-burning fire. Everyone’s into horses, but like a little too much. It’s where you go to get richer for no reason other than you’re already pretty rich. Y’know, a classy affair. Not like those scofflaws and ruffians out THERE. I’ve had to eat my hat (a dapper one, no less!) on that subject in recent weeks, as we’ve taken

Hope You Didn’t Eat Garlic Fries And Then Drink Six Hibernation Ales And Fall Into Four Tables!
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Because that would be embarrassing for everyone but you, because there’s no way you’re remembering that. So kudos in a way, gal who was waaaaay into Michael, QM Trainee of Legend. You found the loophole! I’m going to write a “Da Vinci Code” sort of screenplay, but it will just consist of you drinking your way out of problems. Don’t take it too hard, though. We’ve all had one of those nights, and we’ve all had one of those nights at the British Bulldog. Last night was great fun, even after considering the very, very end part (see previous paragraph). We soundly divided the audience

You Got Jammed
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Great Bulldog night, everyone! I’m glad to be back and not doubled-over in stomach pain praying for death. Yay! Anything away from that direction is an improvement, so last night’s quiz was some sort of inexplicable leap forward. A sublimation of emotions. That thing where you jump a technology level in Civilization. It was that. Furthermore, by all accounts, Shane and Christine rocked the house last week, and I’m crazy thankful for it! And we had a fun quiz that refused to be derailed! Yes, they came in the bar around 9:20 wanting a place to just shout their hearts out, but we shouted louder, dammit! I appreciate everyone who

Insert Dick and Vagina jokes here...
MrKickass2002

I'm not sure if it was because there was a sub & a trainee at the British Bulldog tonight, or if the teams are always named this creepily but we had quite a few dick and vagina references in the team names tonight. It was a great way to break in Christine, the newbie!    As this was my first time at the Bulldog I was immediately welcomed by the bar staff with a "hey how ya doin, you're shit's over here" lol...I knew right then it would be a good night. These guys were super nice and foul mouthed, exactly how I like my bartenders! Christine rocked the mic for four rounds and totally rocked it, nervousness and all! She had the crowd engaged and full of life.    Le

Neeson's Toes
Bela Lugosi's Dad

Bam! Pop! Diff! Shiraz! Sound effects! Quiz! Thanks for making it out to another Monday at the Bulldog, where as the temperature drops, the 24-Hour Patio People mosey on indoors with their loud selves. I like to think they add a well-needed dash of pizazz this time of year. We typically get a few converts into quizzing out of it, so I’d say it’s a good trade for the increased ambient volume. Plus, any night where I get to push That’s When I Reach For My Revolver into the red is a good night. The rest of the night, we wiled away our time discussing the merits of punk and pop and pop punk, like varieties of fine wine. Now I am

Bukowski Zeppelin Bible
Bela Lugosi's Dad

The most potentially informative and instructive moment in any training session is the one that could never be replicated or predicted. Potentially. On the flip side, it could turn out baffling and existentially troubling in ways you wish you could have predicted. Scene: Last night. British Bulldog. Training. Basic stuff. Here’s your mixer. Here’s where you get your quiz. And so on. And then: Enter DRUNK GUY RETURNING FROM THE BATHROOM. “Hey, you wanna know something [unintelligible]? What does Led Zeppelin, Bukowski and the Bible have in common?” I thought it was a joke at first. You know: a priest, a rabbi and the cast

Home Buying Is A Sham And The Middle Class Are Rubes
Bela Lugosi's Dad

    Hey everyone! I’m OK.   With that out of the way, let’s talk wine. Now, I’m pro- pretty much any kind of wine. I’ll get behind a dry white, a fruity red or bubbles of any kind. The night I got engaged, we opened a crazy-balls bottle that was a dry, red, sparkling Slovenian monster. It en-drunkened us and we saw that it was good. Wine is the most musical fruit. Wine is the little death that brings total obliteration. Wine wants to dance with somebody. With somebody who loves wine.   SO OK, MAYBE I’M LESS THAN OK. I
