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

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

Everyone always forgets about The Hurt Locker
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

It's Kombat, with a K
QuizGentleman Bryton

Thursday night at Lumpy's! Right off the bat, let me remind you that there will be no quiz next week, it's St. Patty's Day! I know you've been looking forward to it all year. Be sure to wear green and talk about the Red Sox. I'm planning on making corned beef and cabbage in my crockpot and then watching the awful Jazz take on the awful Suns. Quiz returns March 24th. Back to the present! I think the biggest takeaway of the night is that Macklemore's Thrift Shop came out in 2012. You know, that "new" song Thrift Shop? Well four years have passed since you first heard it. Time goes by so quickly, so make sure you spend it with close friends, good beers, and quiz questions   Let

Hey gang!
QuizGentleman Bryton

Well how do you do! I'm Quizmast Bryton, you may remember me from a couple Lumpy's gigs last fall. I'm here to be your new Thursday night host, for the foreseeable future. We're gonna have a good time in that basement we are! Thanks to the people that came out even if it meant not getting to Target in a timely fashion. The Guesstapo split into three separate teams to better test their mettle, with solo act Where Smeagols Dare taking the big prize. Seems like a lot of you didn't realize that They Might Be Giants is also the name of a movie, or that Save Ferris is more of a ska band than a power pop band. And nobody knew nothin' on those Heartbreak

Nikki!

Thanks for coming out tonight! It was a crazy fun quiz as we learned about crazy ass beers and the latin translation of the nation of Switzerland. Our reigning champs, the Guesstapo were mostly gone, having flown out to the Geek Bowl! I think I can say that we all hope you come in crazy high and kick everyone's ass. Shout out to our only team member of the Guesstapo left who played on his lone team, Polly Banned by Cracker, for coming in 5th place, tied with Voldemorts Nipple! (read, of course, in a Potter Puppet Pals Ron Weasley voice) who ended up taking home our third place prize due to Stumpys who actually won leaving before they could

Sup nerds. Nikki left Lumpy's in my care last night, so I did my best not to let her down! You five teams that showed up are beautiful people. And now I've quizzed for some of you twice this week! Double nerds. The Guesstapo continued their streak with the win, and Dying Alone, Eaten By Cats came in second. Geek Bowl is soon, so I'm glad you guys did well! Come back next week for Nikki's triumphant return, and much thanks to Lumpy's for putting up with me this week!!

Nikki!

Wow! What a huge group for quiz tonight. Thank you all so much for sticking with me for the longer night. It was a ton of fun! Our round 2 was a bitch (unless you were the Guesstapo, cause, you know, they know everything) but we all pulled through. Special shoutout to other former and current QM's who joined in the games tonight. For me, the highlight was our round 4 when I somehow tricked the entire bar into singing Flight of the Conchords (because It really was Business Time). I'm proud of everyone for putting up with my horrifying readings of team names, expecially The Polarican (as in Pola-rican, which is how it is spelled in the score) and If you lose,

In Which I Publicly Embarrass my Friend in Public
Nikki!

Way to go everyone! Tonight was a kick ass game. A shout out to one of my besties Joanna Johnson who was incredibly embarrassed when I started to talk about how amazing she was. I imagine when she gets back from her many auditons as a New York actor, she will not be very happy with me. Anyway, enough of that.  Congrats to The Dwarves of Mohammed for being the only group to know that it was Catherine Parr who was the final wife of King Henry VIII. Also a big thank you to everyone who laughed at my rendition of the Neil Degrasse Tyson joke from Brooklyn Nine-Nine. I'm still chuckling to myself. For the win today, we had Nikki is and

Fun times tonight when we discussed the real questions of who really watches anything the Academy picks for Best Picture. It seems like we had a few pretentious people (says the one who will totally watch all of those movies....) Thank you everyone for putting in a great effort and a special shoutout to Ridin' Like Han...Solo for being a trooper and rockin his quiz solo and to Truseroskerne for not only coming up with a name that I could neither pronounce nor spell correctly, but also for taking second place. Chalupa Batman took their coveted third-place spot. They have been working towards that for a long time. Congrats! Also, way to go The
