Drum and Digeridoo: The New Dance Craze
Patsquatch

Well here we are at the end of the summer movie season in which we have hit the doldrums. I wanted to like all of the movies that are releasing tomorrow but they have each gotten abysmal reviews and seem to be ending the summer on a whimper as opposed to an explosion. That is too bad as I think the summer started out pretty great and maintained for quite some time. I blame Terminator Genisys for being such and unmitigated piece of shit. Here is the recap: Round 1 was Duh! And it was a bunch of super easy questions. A number of teams kind of over thought this round a bit but a fair number of teams did pretty well. Montreal was most missed with the number of astronauts that flew

Africa: You Got Totoed
Patsquatch

I hear the drums echoing tonight, and it is a testament to the excitement and fun that we had at quiz. All the energy and good vibes that come from fun that is worth enduring the still scorching heat of summer. The sound and fury of the quiz reached fever pitch in a din of activity that was hard not to feel deep in the core. But she hears only whispers of some quiet conversation which is pretty impressive because often I have a hard time hearing myself on the mic at times such is the noise that rises up from good friends sharing good times. That is all part of the magic of quiz. She’s coming in twelve-thirty flight, which is too bad because she is missing quiz given that

Orson Welles Hocking Peas is the Best Thing Ever
Patsquatch

Wouldn’t it be cool if they could actually make a Fantastic Four movie that is worth a damn? I have not seen Josh Trank’s attempt at the property yet but at 9% on Rotten Tomatoes I am guessing it is pretty grim and not the ever lovin’ blue eyed Thing kind. I am not especially invested in the Fantastic Four as it was not a comic I really cared for growing up but it is kind of criminal that this is the fourth attempt to do the property justice and it is getting worse reviews than the last pair. That seems insane to me. And Dr. Doom is way too good of a villain to languish in this shitty corner of comic book filmdom. Why the fuck is it so hard to pull off one of Marvel’s

The One Where I Rant About Game Hunting
Patsquatch

So I wasn’t really going to write about this but since several team names referenced it I feel like it is clearly on people’s minds. I am really pretty upset about the Cecil the lion business for a number of reasons but I am also annoyed by some of the people I have seen on Facebook thought policing it like you should be more upset about other issues instead of that one. As if one awful thing means that you can’t care about another awful thing. Kind of like people who claim that Caitlyn Jenner can’t be brave because soldiers exist. I really hate that kind of shit. There is plenty of bravery to go around just like there is plenty of awful shit around to be upset about. As

Office Space Invaders is a Game I Want to Play
Patsquatch

Is it seriously almost August? I cannot believe how quickly this summer has gone and I am also pretty stoked that it is moving so fast because I really want the heat to end. Maybe I shouldn’t live in Arizona but holy shit I hate the heat here. I can’t wait until we get to the 45 minutes or so of winter we have coming. Winter might be coming but it will be way too fast and leave everyone unsatisfied. Winter in Arizona really needs to take the bullets out of the gun already. I suppose I am getting way ahead of myself as it will be nothing but heat until sometime in November the way things have gone the past few years. Here’s the recap: Round 1 was Never Have

I Am Booking a Trip to Love Land
Patsquatch

And we are back! After a week off we came back guns blazing with some great competition! I am not sure what you guys all did last week but I was at San Diego Comic Con and it was a blast! I managed to meet Ready Player One author Ernest Cline and told him he was my pop culture spirit animal and I got to meet Fight Club author Chuck Palahniuck. Both of those things rocked really hard. Seeing Daniel Radcliffe and Bruce Campbell in person was also pretty badass. Kevin Smith got a raw deal when JJ Abrams cleared out Hall H right before Smith’s panel but I was there and would have chosen to stay even if I had the opportunity to see the John Williams orchestra performance. Call me crazy but

Koko Has a Potty Mouth

I am not going to prattle on too much here except to say that we had a great night of quiz tonight and for most it the beginning of a potentially badass holiday weekend in which we celebrate our nation’s independence with hot dogs, beer, and fireworks. Whatever you get up to just be safe and have as much fun as possible! Here’s the recap: Round 1 was And Something Was Its Name-O and all the answers ended in “-ingo.” About half the teams killed this and the other half kind of winged it a bit. Everyone knew about A Cry in the Dark and the dingo who ate Meryl Streep’s baby and most teams knew about flamingos being the common name for phoenicopterus

Ron Jeremy Takes Manhattan
Patsquatch

After a week off I am back in the saddle and tonight was a great night. We had awesome teams and a great time even in the face of sweltering heat and the cruel tease of rain that showed up taunting us with the promise of moisture only to snatch it back along with any hope of respite from the blazing sun and dry sizzle capable turning cars into convection ovens. Even given the conditions we had a great crowd at quiz and I had a great time hosting as usual. Also some quizzers told me about a show called Airplane Repo and holy shit.

Half-Life 3? Odds are you'll win the lottery first.
Caribbean Joe

Where is the Squatch?  Well when he asked me to cover for him, he mumbled something about going to Thailand for a thing.  I think they were called Doctors Without Condoms or something like that.  Maybe he’ll bring back pictures. Okay, he isn’t really in Thailand, he is off at E3 getting the info on the next big things in gaming and stuff, so he should have some great stories when he gets back.  Make sure that each of you asks him individually.  Now I’m the electronic type geek.  I have been on computers and I’ve been a gamer since it really started.  I remember visiting some family friends when I was a very young child.

I enjoy long walks on the beach, scooter rides and zombies.  

I have a BS in BS.  I can BS in at least 2 languages and I can convincingly imitate a few others.

I enjoy any occasion to dress up.  I will go disco, zombie or Mandalorian if you give me a reason. 

I am Caribbean Joe.  Born in Texas, I lived in the southwest pretty much all my life.  A desert dweller's life for me.  

So I picked up quizzing after my friend and scorekeeper, Island Amy, found an ad and prodded me to audition.  The rest is history.  Loving the quiz and the people it draws.  If I am not quizzing, you may find me out enjoying Tucson.

You may also see me around town on my scooter.  Feel free to wave.

If you want to know more, stop by and quiz and meet me and I just might answer your questions. Hell I may even answer you truthfully.

Magnets...How Do They Work?
Patsquatch

Here were are on the eve of Jurassic World opening. There are a lot of iconic films and series being represented this summer and this year as a whole and of them Jurassic World is one that has the most riding on it for me. I love Jurassic Park both the book and the movie and while Lost World falls apart in the end and Jurassic Park III feels a little insubstantial, I love the series as a whole. Colin Trevorrow did a fantastic job on Safety Not Guaranteed so I am really hoping for the best here. If this pans out then I just need a fucking miracle so that Terminator Genisys doesn’t suck huge balls. Here’s hoping. Here’s the recap: Round 1 was Anyone? Anyone?

Is Confucius a Gourd?

Today is National Hug a Cat Day and it is sort of weird to me that tomorrow is not National Put Iodine on Your Cat Scratches Before the Bandages Day. It is actually National Donut Day and apparently a certain major chain is giving out free donuts tomorrow. That is pretty badass because as anyone who has ever seen me before knows that I love some donuts. I am slightly concerned that strawberry frosted with sprinkles will be all gone but beggars can’t be choosers. I choose free donuts because free donuts are the best thing in the world.

It is the night before Phoenix Comic Con and I am looking forward to three days of awesome comicy goodness. I am kind of nervous about the amount of money I am probably going to spend this weekend but it will be a good time. I encourage everyone who are free and are so inclined to check it out this weekend. We should all support an awesome event like this that is right here in our state.  Also, I have to leave at 7:30 in the morning so I will leave it at that. Here’s the recap: Round 1 was Can You Use It in a Sentence and it was all about spelling bees. This got the quiz off to a bit of a rocky start. I would think that it was bad that teams didn’t know much

Of Tie Breakers for Tie Breakers

Ah graduation, that time when 12 years’ worth of effort and hard work culminates in a moment when a student can gather with friends and family to take all our parking places and make parking at quiz a complete bitch. My nostalgia and admiration runs out pretty hard when I have to lug all my shit from several blocks away. I mean sure it is a milestone that every student should be proud of achieving but it is directly inconveniencing me so rather than celebrate their achievement I am just going to shout at them to get off my lawn. And if we all parked on lawns this whole diatribe would make a lot more sense. Here’s the recap: Round

When is Netflix going to Bring Back Alf?
Patsquatch

So here we are on the eve of the new Mad Max movie Fury Road and it is currently at 99% on Rotten Tomatoes with 163 positive reviews to 2 negative ones. So that is pretty fucking amazing. But some people just aren’t happy with the prospect of a high octane testosterone fueled chase movie through a post-apocalyptic hellscape. Some people, we’ll call them ‘fucking assholes,’ apparently want to boycott the movie because it has the audacity to make Charlize Theron’s character worthwhile and important. The Men’s Rights Activists are calling for a boycott of a movie dripping with violence and vehicular action because apparently Theron’s

Jonah Hill Has a Potty Mouth
Patsquatch

Sometimes, when summertime is teeing up and the sun is reflecting off of every surface in the city, people who have problems with migraines go into Chipotle to try out the carnitas for the first time and suddenly they have to leave work because they can’t see anymore. That leads to hours of dark rooms, ice packs on the forehead, pain meds, and sleeping for a few hours in the hopes to get rid of the headache so the people can go about their lives. Sometimes those lives include hosting quiz and sometimes those people suck it up and host quiz after a week of migraines and regret. That was me today and that was me tonight, fortified with enough pain meds to cripple a large

Taylor Swift Rapping is One of the Biblical Signs of the Apocalypse, Right?

You know, as much as I love hosting quiz, when summer rolls around Thursdays become pretty painful nights to host. I am a huge movie guy. I mean I am really into movies not that I am enormous and like movies. Although I guess that is true enough too. The point is that midnight launches of summer blockbusters really kick me in the balls especially when they are not at midnight but rather at 7pm and my friends invite me along which is nice but also irritating because I have been doing this long enough they should remember and it is painful to see them post on Facebook about how excited they are to be sitting in the theater waiting for the Avengers to start and I know I won’t see it until
