Meat and Quiz are Murder
Major Tom

Today is Manager Mitch's birthday. Did you wish him a happy birthday last night at Quiz? If you didn't, you made him sad. This is the sort of thing that drives a man to listen to Morrissey. Mitch is a sad man. So sad, in fact, that not only does he listen to Morrissey, but he has Morrissey tattoos, and he flies all over the country to see Morrissey play in concert. Is there anything else quite that sad? You would probably say that there is not. You would be wrong. I think we can all agree that heavy metal is the greatest music in the world, yeah? Well, Mitch feels inadequate sometimes because so many of you forget to do things like wish him a happy birthday. So, to compensate, he listens to

In the event of depressurization, please drink your own beer before assisting others.
Major Tom

It always concerns me when we have a huge crowd at the Dub, with people standing at the bar and a ton of noise. I always assume that it's a giant crowd of bros who are there to get drunk and make noise, and that Quiz will be almost impossible. I always begin with the rules and procedures of the Quiz, and sure enough, the crowd never quiets down for that. Sure enough, I think, this is going to be tough. But then, as soon as I start with Round One, it gets nearly silent and everyone listens. It turns out that everyone in the club is there for Quiz, and Quiz is fun and easy. I fall for it every time. I was thinking about why it is that everyone is super loud while I'm doing the rules and procedures,

Congratulations to Christa McAuliffe on getting out of the teaching profession.
Major Tom

Today was the anniversary of the space shuttle Challenger exploding a little over a minute after it launched. At the time, the entire nation was still captivated by the space shuttle program. People stopped what they were doing to watch every launch. It was exciting to watch it blast off and to watch it land a few days later. People knew who the astronauts were, and often they knew the details of the missions. It hadn't gotten to be old hat yet. So, since the shuttle was big news, and had ben problem-free, NASA started bringing people along who really had no business being astronauts. For the doomed Challenger flight, they brought along Christa McAuliffe, a teacher. Schools all over the country

My kingdom for a mic!
Major Tom

As most of you know, my day job is as a 7th grade social studies teacher. During the school day, any number of disasters can strike, and they often do. In those cases, I have to quickly improvise a solution and try to keep order and keep things running. Thinking on your feet is a necessary part of the job, or else everything can completely go to hell at any moment. The same thing can be true for my job as a Quizmaster. I have an extra soundboard in my car, I have extra batteries for my microphone with me at all times. I have contingency plans for all kinds of possible catastrophes. So last night, one of my most trusted companions failed on me. My wireless microphone stopped working. This microphone

\m/ METAL! \m/
Major Tom

We always have a pretty good turnout for Quiz at the Dub, but when I walked in last night, I was absolutely stunned at how many people were there. My first thought was, "Oh crap. Look at how many people are here that aren't here for Quiz." It was loud and there were a ton of people standing at the bar. I figured those were all people who were there to drink and get loud, not to play Quiz. I figured we were going to have a tough time getting them to shut up so that the Quizzers could hear the questions. Much to my surprise, every single person at the Dub was there to play! We started the Quiz, and it got quiet almost immediately. It was crazy. I wish I could get my 7th graders to do that.

Fame, Fortune, Quiz.
Major Tom

Last night we had packed house at the Dub for Quiz. That was pretty cool, because I didn't expect it in a rainy, cold week before school is back in session. Also cool was that the Quiz writers got creative with the Quiz last night. I really enjoy it when there are rounds that are different than usual. The Round 6 that changed one letter in famous book titles, and the Round 7 in which you had to listen to sound clips of people, but then name their predecessor and successor were very cool.  At least I thought so. You know what else was extremely cool last night? A bunch of us went to The Surly Wench afterward, which is not the usual modus operandi. The karaoke rotation frankly sucks at

New Year's is the strangest holiday.
Major Tom

New Year's Eve is a strange holiday. It really commemorates nothing. A Pope many years ago standardized the calendar, and this holiday is the last day of that calendar. Nothing particularly historic happened on that day. Scientifically, it isn't any specific position of the earth and sun or anything. It isn't even the first day of any season. Regardless of this, we all aspire to have big plans on this day. As kids, we try to stay awake long enough to watch the ball drop. As we get older, we try to be out at a club somewhere, partying like we'll never party again. Then, as we get older, and we have families, we compare how lame our New Years was on Facebook, as if we really should have been

I Had A Bleeping Good Time!
Natasha Noir

I hadn’t set foot inside of the Auld Dubliner in many a moon, so I was happy to see that it hasn’t changed and is very much the way I remember it. I was prepared with my A game as I have heard tell that this venue is one of the most popular for Geeks Who Drink in Tucson. Once we established that I am not the regular QM, Tom…. Gee, what gave that away? We got down to business, pre-holiday quiz business that is. This was perhaps one of the most giggly quizzes I have ever been present for and with good reason. Holiday song parodies, bags of chewy dicks and giving the impression that perhaps Frosty has a magic schlong (word of choice for the AD crowd) will always

Happy birthday to me! (Sorta)
Major Tom

My birthday has always been a sore spot with me. Being on Christmas Eve, no one ever hangs out with me. They're always with their families. I'm not with my family, though, because they go to church on Christmas Eve. On the other hand, it's an easy date to remember. Because of that fact, I have been lucky enough to have friends plan some pretty cool surprises for my birthday that they do on some random date before the actual date. Once, I was kidnapped and a hood put over my head at my front door. I was thrown in the back of a car, and led through a restaurant. When my hood was taken off, I was surrounded by friends at Sakura, one of my favorite places.  That was pretty awesome, except

The age-old question may have been answered last night.
Major Tom

Themed Quizzes are a lot of fun, but they can be stressful for the players. What will be on the Quiz? Did we study enough? DId we study the right things? Should I dress in costume? What if someone else wears the same costume? What kind of songs could they play in the audio round? I don't remember the names of the songs they played in the Mos Eisley Cantina! What was the name of the Ewok band that played the song at the end of Jedi? Surprise! It was sound effects, not music. I thought I would add to that stress by making a lightsaber battle the tiebreaker for bonus questions. Unfortunately there were no ties. It would have been glorious. Apparently the Force was with the Quizzers last night,

Napalm Death can solve many problems.
Major Tom

Last night was Dead Day Eve at the University. Since I haven't been a student for quite some time, I had no idea. Manager Mitch let me know when I walked in that there might be an influx of bro-dudes toward the end of the Quiz, so I should try to get through the Quiz a little early to avoid as much of that as possible. I had a plan of my own. I figured that generally, the non-Quizzers who make a ton of noise and keep people from hearing anything usually show up right around Round 7.  Unfortunately, that is the second audio round. Big problem. If you recall, a few months ago was the last time this problem occurred, and it resulted in me nearly getting in a fight with a bro-dude who wouldn't

Burning the candle at both ends, and in the middle.
Major Tom

I've been pretty tired lately. You would think Thanksgiving Break would be time to get some rest and return to work refreshed. You would be wrong. I drove to Phoenix and spent 4 days with my parents, my sister and her husband and my 1 year old niece and 4 year old nephew. The kids are insane. On top of that, I was the only one who wasn't sick for at least part of the time. We were up late, we were cooking and eating, and we were running all over town doing things. Then I had to drive back. Since then, I've been back at all three of my jobs. On Tuesday night, I had a million things I needed to do. Instead, I sat down in my chair and meant to watch a tv show, but I fell asleep immediately. Here

Happy Thanksgiving, jive turkeys!
Major Tom

Thanksgiving is a great holiday. It doesn't matter what religion you are, or if you aren't religious at all. We all just get together with those we care about and celebrate gluttony. It doesn't get much better than that. Personally, I love Thanksgiving because it always brings out the spirit of sharing with your fellow humans.  There are always those who aren't able to be with their families for Thanksgiving, and yet people always seem to get together to share this time anyway. When I was in the marching band at the U of A, there were a bunch of kids who couldn't go home. There was one trumpet player who had been in the band for over a decade for whatever reason, and he would have everyone

Major Tom

This was a pretty rough week in a lot of ways. It got cold really fast here in Tucson. Charlie Sheen revealed that he's probably given HIV to half the civilized world. And terrorist buttholes have started attacking live music, the most sacred thing there is. I'm glad no one was scared away by the cold weather. On the other hand, I didn't really think you would be. I remember a Quiz at the Dub when it was snowing hard outside. We packed the house, and we played in the snow on scoring breaks. A couple of teams made me little snowmen and put them in highball glasses on the scorer's table. You know who was at that Quiz? The Sherlock Homies.

Happy Veteran's Day, all you freeloaders!
Major Tom

Yesterday was Veteran's Day. My father is a veteran, having served for a few years in the Army during the Vietnam War. He was miraculously never sent to Vietnam, and spent his time in Korea and White Sands Missle Range in New Mexico, where I was born. Still, despite never being in combat, he is a veteran. I am not. No way would I ever have joined an organization where other people had so much control over my life. Since leaving the Army, he never got Veteran's Day off. I have always had the day off. He's retired now, so he has the day off permanently now, but what I think is great is that the last few years that he worked, he would take Veteran's Day off, and hang a photo of himself as a young

I know I abandoned you guys last week. I couldn't help it. You know how I feel about Halloween and horror movies and such. The Walking Dead Quiz was just too important. I had been asking the bigwigs in the top floor of GWD Tower in downtown Denver for years to do a Walking Dead Quiz. It's not my fault that they put it on a Wednesday. Coming back to the Dub last night, though, felt good. It's my Quiz home, and it was very nice to hear everyone tell me how you missed me and Scorekeeper Dini last week.
