Rain Drops Keep Falling On My Head
RobotNarwhal

Are my eyes turning red?  Because I find it hilarious how bad weather can sometimes bring out the worst in people.  Or, it at very least makes them act a bit crazy.  Even me.  My stupid emergency notifications on my cell phone woke me up twice last night with flash flood warnings in the area.  I slept terribly dreaming about my roof leaking and caving in on me, and my cat snuggling a little too close for comfort didn’t help, either.  And of course, the more grumbly I get, the more the cat wants to be in my face.  He’s laying across my arms right now while I am trying to type.  I BLAME THE

Jessica has two of the greatest jobs ever: QMMF, and drinking beer for a living.  We are not even kidding.  She also enjoys movies, Science Fiction, rock and roll, taking longs walks on any available tropical beach, and slowly vying for world domination.  She's an irritating optimist with an existential bend, and is a fan of tattoos that include punctuation marks and/or robots.  She has an unhealthy obsession with whales, and although she kinda prefers humpbacks, narwhals are pretty damn cute.  And don't even get her started on belugas.

Well, I Guess She's Tasty and Bootylicious...
RobotNarwhal

Ok, maybe not.  Nor is she “toned and tight” according to the song, albeit I imagine that the girl who inspired “The Girl From Ipanema” probably possessed a pretty bangin’ bod.  Her name is Helo Pinheiro, by the way, and you might be able to track down the historic issue of Playboy from the 80s.  And if you are not familiar with this song, you should be.  It’s part of our cultural heritage, or mis-heritage, depending on your point of view.      Think

The Best Worst Drinks Anywhere
RobotNarwhal

The rain blasting down from the heavens and flood warnings galore weren’t enough to keep y’all away from Jack Quinn’s for quiz this week!  And it was a good thing, too, because Marty pulled out yet another pair of suit Guiness harp studded glasses to give away as an extra prize.  This time, we decided to have a “drink recipe” contest, and you kids did not disappoint with your submissions.  Some sounded downright delicious, and some sounded downright metaphorical.  So without further ado, may I present the first… Geeks Who

You Will Become...A TRUE BELIEVER!
Dark Lord of Quiz

Free comic book day? AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON!? MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE THEMED QUIZ? Man, it was a fun and busy Saturday in Colorado Springs when a small but mighty group of true believers came to Jack Quinn's to show off their big brains and compete for a cash prize. We covered a wide swath of Marvel knowledge, trying to hit every corner of the cinematic universe in an attempt to placate even the most voracious of geeks. Me personally, I had a great time since the hammer was my microphone for once (insert played out team name jokes here).    Seriously, though, Mjolnir makes a fine microphone. Granted, I don't know that it would have

Derek Knight had a realllly good bio written and then, in a moment of hubris, decided to change his nickname and the damn thing disappeared. Blah blah graphic artist blah magician, blah blah former radio DJ, blah not really funny blah something about Quizmaster of the Year blah blah has a kid so you know he totally puts out blah is from Colorado Springs blah blah but isn't a racist blah likes tacos blah. Listen, I have some top secret clown business to attend to, so I'll be needing your vehicle, ok?

It Wasn't A Wrong Turn, Swear...
RobotNarwhal

Over this past weekend, I found myself in Albuquerque.  Yes, on purpose.  Before heading down there, I was thinking to myself that April must be a great time of year in New Mexico because of the whole Spring thing.  And at first, it was fantastic: sunny, warm, with flowers and actual greenery all over the desert.  Then, it started to rain.  And rain.  And you know what?  New Mexicans (sorry, I am going to totally stereotype) cannot drive in the freaking rain.  You’d have thought it was the coming of the Apocalypse on I-25.  We passed accident after accident, with no indication of bad roads except the mizzly gray pizzle wafting down from the

Spring is HERE!
RobotNarwhal

Spring is upon us!  Granted, it is Colorado, so we may still get our fair shake of nasty weather, but for the most part, things are coming up out of the ground and life is starting to smell good again.  So far, the best Spring thing I’ve witnessed was a squirrel attempting to “bury” a prize of some sort between the cushions in my patio furniture.  I watched this effort from a window, and when the squirrel had gone, I went to see what it was.  Turns out it was a corn chip.  What a prize that must be for a squirrel, huh?  It couldn’t live in my patio furniture, so I put it on the fence, and soon another squirrel found it.  I imagine

There Once Was a Man From Nantucket...
RobotNarwhal

So, I did have that dose of reality about half way through quiz when Renee pointed out that I’m surlier when I’m not drinking.  Whoa – 100% the truth.  And before yet another person asks, NO I’M NOT PREGNANT.  And why is it that *that* is the first thing everyone asks?  Is it a case of “You know you’re a boozer when…” the first thing people assume is that you must be knocked up.  Or has quiz drinking culture just become so ubiquitous that you all quake in fear at the thought of me permanently sober?  I just made a choice to lay off the juice for a few weeks, ok?  And don’t panic, I’m sure it won’t

Keen Who? Who's Wa?
RobotNarwhal

Ok, guilty confession time?  I’m *kind of* a neo-hippie.  I mean, I’m probably too old to be a hipster, and frankly, neo-hippies and hipsters are pretty close definitionally, right?  It’s just an age thing?  I recycle.  Like, I separate anything that can qualify for co-mingled, and I rinse them all out before I put them in the bin.  I also compost my yard waste.  That’s not weird is it?  Where I’m going with this is that…well… I eat quinoa.  Like, all the time.  I love it. You can do so many things with quinoa: it’s pretty high in protein, so it sticks together well, and frankly, it’s
