Hurricane Vibrations
QuizGentleman Bryton

Twilight Concert Series kicks off tonight! Like Hall H, it's much better to be in the basement of Lumpy's than at either of those other locations. Trust me. I mean, I'm not trying to tell you how to have your fun but it's just too hot to be outside and Pioneer Park just gets too crowded.  So thanks to all who joined me at Lumpy's for another night o' quiz. Don't forget next week is Bob's Burgers so come to that or don't. Definitely come if that's the kind of thing you like. Otherwise original recipe quiz returns the following week.     Tight scores after the first break, but eventually a solo B-Mo broke out from the pack and

You all are rockstars tonight.  S ure there were only three teams, but does that really matter if everyone had fun and used their brain a little more than usual?   The whole night the rankings stayed pretty much the same.  Although the scores do seem to prove that the more people you have the more likely you are to win.  At least tonight they do... Flying Like Hans; Solo! unfortunately came in third (aka last).  However, that does not mean he did not try the hardest, pun intended for that seventh round, if you know what I mean.  Smartinis barely beat out the trivia travelers from AZ, Mr.

Alright Lumpy's! Back to the basement, back to a normal quiz. But to keep things fresh we did it backward. I set up on the... west? side of the basement. It weirded everybody out. I liked it just fine. Just kidding it weirded me out too. Let's never do this again.  Gamaliel! Now that's a name and a half. Warren Gamaliel and Nate Dogg. Lyndon Beatrice Johnson. John Firenze Kennedy. Let it not be said our presidents didn't have weird middle names. Harry Seinfeld Truman. George White Walker Bush. Chester Alvinandthechipmunks Arthur. I could go on.    Remember Balloon Boy? Some of you do. TIL at quiz that the Balloon Boy incident happened seven

Well that was like a whole shark week crammed into one night! That was a lot of fun, gang. Thanks for coming. You’re all my new BFFs. Our new pre-reg system seemed to work. Had a good sized crowd, didn’t have to turn anyone away or put any babies in the corner. Kudos to A Blaffair to Rememblack for being fully costumed. I wasn’t wearing a costume unless “Bryton had a job interview before the quiz” counts as a costume. Gar helped me out at scoring and was resplendent in Geeks Who Drink wear. I had a lot of fun putting together the bonus prizes, hope you winners liked them. My customizable trucker

QuizGentleman Bryton

Today we're going to talk about argon! A very underrated noble gas, underrated indeed, since no one got it in Round 8 Thursday night. Though neon gets all the credit in neon signs, argon plays a crucial role in those classic signs advertising open businesses, casinos, and nail salons. I'm really into neon signs.    I also love quiz! Fun night on the main floor of Lumpy's Downtown. Saw some new faces. I felt like my voice sounded particularly resonant.    Super Tramp and Lady and the Tramps battled head to head most of the night, but I knew all along Just the Tip would end up

Breathing Room
QuizGentleman Bryton

Back to Lumpy's on a regular night. We can all take a deep breath after the Disney Quiz. We finally have some elbow room!    Time to try something new and break up the Guesstapo to see who the real MVP of that team is. All the Guesstapers pitted against each other in a one-on-one-on-one-one(ish) battle, with newcomers Turtle Power joining in a bit late.    The music round was a tough one for all of you. If the Guesstapo had been playing together they'd have scored 11, respectable but certainly not dominant. The Brofessor got the high with 10 points and ran away with the quiz

A Pox on the Phony King of Quizland
QuizGentleman Bryton

I don't even have words.  But I have to, so I guess I'll see what I conjure up. I can't believe the crowd that came out to Lumpy's Downtown. I knew Disney was popular, especially here in the great state of Utah, but I had no idea it was THIS popular. We had twice the turnout of the Star Wars quiz, and I thought that one was extreme! 51 teams! We were crammed in there like a Tokyo subway car.    I guess I shouldn't be surprised. When I went to the [trademarked toy building brick] store to buy some Disney minifigures they had a sign saying that they were limited to 18 per person. I love those minifigures but I get so sad when I open up a pack

Hey hey we're back in the basement! It was nice down there, especially when the AC kicked on. Not sure where we'll be for the Disney Quiz but I wanted to mention it right up front to remind you to either come check it out, or avoid Lumpy's next week if Disney ain't your thing! It's gonna be a great time though.  Poor Laura, I feel bad for encouraging her to shout out the answers considering her recent injury. It sounds really lousy. I just like to roast quizzers whenever I can. I don't know Esther or we could have given her a nice birthday roast. Although it wasn't even her real birthday.    Love that the spelling bee drew more applause than

Thanks to everyone who braved the frightful weather to come out to Lumpy's last night! I know we had some first time teams mixed in with our regulars so that's always fun. In a way, every night is an audition for me as I try to win your favor and get you back week after week. The real excitement came after the quiz ended. I stuck around because I was too lazy to leave and I wanted to watch the Dodgers game. Suddenly FWOOP! the power goes out! I emerge into the pouring purple rain to find displaced drunks everywhere and the entire city in a state of pitched blackness. I frantically tried to make it home to feed my cat but had to fight my way through aggressive cars that don't understand

No Men Black Down Hills Eyes Shutter
QuizGentleman Bryton

Well hey! That was a really fun time upstairs at Lumpy's last night! I wore my infinite taco t-shirt for Cinco de Mayo but didn't actually eat anything resembling Mexican food. I think I really blew it. I'm starting to dig the upstairs, but who knows how long we'll be up there. I like that I'm free to do quiz without getting peppered by ping pong balls or distracted by all of the giant TVs. Remember that one time I drifted off and watched an entire inning of baseball between question 2 and question 3 of round 6? Just kidding I would never do that. Good scores tonight and I was especially pleased to see that everyone did very well on Round 8. That's a tough one and it shows

Billy Crystal I Ain't
QuizGentleman Bryton

Wrapping up a great week of quizzes with Lumpy's Downtown on a Thursday. This was my 136th quiz as host and my 10th at Lumpy's and for the first time ever we had a Utah Jazz question. I was probably more excited about than I should be but I really got a kick out of it.  Speaking of sports, we spent quiz on the third floor, the dance floor! I'm cool with whatever. Lumpy's is a sports bar after all and big hockey playoffs, NBA playoffs, and the NFL draft falling on one night filled the place up with people that didn't necessarily want to hear my hilarious banter. Those people missed out though. Ah well. Next week we are back in the basement, like true geeks!   Last

Purple Reign
QuizGentleman Bryton

What I time to be alive! Usually that's said facetiously but I really mean it. When the tragic news of Prince's demise broke I went to Facebook and within 15 minutes my feed was full of tributes and memories of Prince. Just think how lucky we are to live in an age where information spreads so quickly! Just 100 years ago it take weeks for breaking news to reach the masses. I hate all the talk about how social media is driving us apart. It's bringing us together!  Furthermore, it's amazing that at Lumpy's I can get a draft beer so cold that there's flecks of ice in it, and that during quiz I can glance up to a jumbotron sized screen and watch Jake Arrieta pitch his second no-hitter.

Go Hockey Team!
QuizGentleman Bryton

Since the NBA season is now completely over... not that Utah ever had an NBA team to begin with... sorry, I'm still not over it.  Anyway, I guess the hockey playoffs are happening? I have no inclination for hockey whatsoever. So I'm happy to pander and support whatever team my quizzers might be rooting for. The Caps? Sure why not! They seem great. Go Caps.  The Caps the quiz team, not the hockey team, had a decent night considering they were just hanging out in the bar and had no intention of playing at first. Even won a bonus prize! Gotta like that. We were playing on

William Hung's Final Repose
QuizGentleman Bryton

Finally, the Quizmaster has returned to Lumpy's! It's been so long. We all took a little break for St. Patrick's Day, then the next week I ended up getting stuck in Houston, then I came down with a bad case of Dengue Fever or Swine Flu or some garbage. The important thing is that I'm back, and I don't care about being popular and thus will make you listen to American Idol auditions three times a piece.  High scoring quiz thanks to the 16 point video round. I think this is a first for video rounds at Lumpy's? You can see we got a little tricky on one of them by throwing in an actual director, and props to Rogue Juans for recognizing that.  The Guesstapo

Nikki!

Hello all! It felt great to be back with the Lumpy's crowd again. We had a great time figuring out what in the hell happens in Nebraska, 4 word artists, the different types of hammers and what in the hell Ewan McGregor is. In continuing their winning streak The Guesstapo took first place 5 points ahead of Planned Parenthood Punishers. This was also a night in which everyone had their round 2 as their absolute best round. Go everyone for kicking ass. Thank you all for coming tonight! Hopefully I will see you soon!

The Night I Figured Out Why We're All Going To Hell
Quizmaster Soss

When history books are written centuries from now, they'll look back on our generation as the defining point things started spiraling out of control. We've always had heroes and heard their stories and wanted to be like them. But somewhere in the 90s things changed. And I'll tell you exactly what it was... when video games started to let you be the bad guy. You can still hear the echoes of the the Moral Fabric Of Society being ripped into pieces. My whole childhood I'm trying to get to the last level so I can kill Bowser, and then all of the sudden I'm driving a go-kart with him right next to Mario? WTF!? Do you know what this does to my sense of right and wrong? And then Goldeneye
