The show must go on!
Major Tom

Well, one of you guys got me sick. I'm kidding, of course. Actually, it was probably one of my filthy little seventh graders that got me sick. I'm pretty unhappy about that. I almost never call in sick to work, but I especially don't like calling in this early in the school year. It's a paranoia that if I use my sick days early, then I won't have any if I need them later in the year. Like all of a sudden this year I'll contract ebola or something in April. So, I started feeling terrible and took Tuesday off. Not wanting to blow any more sick days, I went in to work with a sore throat and sneezing up stuff that you don't want me to describe.  I came home, and found that my air conditioner

I live a very animated life.
Major Tom

Did any of you catch my show on Heavy Metal Television this week? I sure didn't! My show is Monday through Friday at 1 am to 5 am. I am very glad that it's prerecorded! I got home after Quiz and the requisite after-Quiz partying, and I tried to watch some of my show. I made it through about 30 minutes. For a teacher/Quizmaster/video host/music reviewer, it's pretty difficult to stay up that late on a weekday. Also, there was beer involved last night, so it was all the more difficult to stay awake. I am really looking forward to all the fans I will be getting soon. I'm picturing unemployed guys, meth heads who can't sleep, and Europeans and Asians. Maybe some Australians. I have always

What's going on? Where am I?
Major Tom

I wrote last week that I was now working three jobs. One of my Quizzers asked me last night if I sleep. I do, and that is the problem. I havent gotten used to my schedule yet, and my body has not adjusted yet. As I write this, I have fallen sleep three times. I drank an energy drink, but it isn't working. I'm actually kind of dizzy right now, and not altogether sure what's going on or where I am, much less what I'm writing. I can feel my blood pumping through my face and neck. If this is complete gibberish, I apologize. Or maybe it's entertaining for you reading the rantings of a mind that is not really conscious. If so, then you're welcome. I may be dying. We'll see.

Soon to be a big star on the other hemisphere.
Major Tom

Summer has ended, and the kids are back in school, so I'm back to two jobs. Holy crap, my body got used to summer hours. Every square inch of me is completely exhausted now that I'm getting up early and teaching again. It will take a few weeks to get back in the swing of things, most likely. So of course, what do I do? I go out and get a third job, obviously! Last Saturday I drove up to Phoenix to audition for a spot as a video host on Heavy Metal Television.  (www.heavymetaltelevision.com) There were 21 people auditioning in front of a crowd at Zia Records, as well as in front of a panel of judges. They were the guy in charge of HMT, one of the video hosts at HMT, the drummer from Sacred

Live life like you don't have to work in the morning.
Major Tom

You have to get out and do things in life, because you never know when you won't be able to do those things. Example: I usually drive up Mt. Lemmon a few times every summer and go hang out up there. For some reason this summer, I never went up the mountain, until last weekend. Good thing I did, because the mountain is now on fire. Who knows if my favorite spots up there are going to burn. I'm really glad I went up last weekend. See, my summer is over now, and school starts today. You need to get out to Quiz at the Dub every Wednesday, because I teach middle school, and you never know when those kids will drive me to kill myself. You'd feel pretty bad if you missed the last Quiz before your

I'm the Wu Tang of Quizmasters.
Major Tom

You probably don't wouldn't guess this about me, but I am a bit of a scrapper. At a metal concert, I'm in the mosh pit the whole time. I used to box, and I've gone toe to toe with guys who are a foot taller than me. Once, at my other Quiz venue, there was a fight between customers, and no male employees working that night, so I had to be the bouncer in addition to the Quizmaster. So, last night, I was running a bit late for Quiz, and there was an accident at the corner of Broadway and Euclid. The cops had the intersection blocked off, so I went through the light to the next street and turned left. I was behind one other car. We both drove up one block and stopped at the stop sign.

I refuse to give a recap of the Quiz.
Major Tom

Writer's block. It's really an amazing thing. It really only affects a small part of the populace, but it is terrible for those people. I have to write two Blogs every week for my two Quiz venues. A lot of the time, it's very obvious to me what to write about. Either something happened at Quiz, or there was some sort of trend with bad answers amongst the teams. If not, then there is usually something going on in the world or in my life that is worth writing about, or I just have some sort of inspiration for something funny to write about. Other, times, like today, I stare at my computer for hours. I get up and get something to eat, then come back to stare some more. Today, I took a nap, hoping

A history lesson...
Major Tom

In 1980, the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan. As a way of punishing them for this aggression, the President of the United States ordered a boycott of the Summer Olympics, held that year in Moscow. This "punishment" had basically one result. The Soviet Union won pretty much all the medals that year, since the United States was not there to compete with them. In retribution, the Soviets held a boycott of the 1984 Summer Olympics, held in Los Angeles. They also pressured the other communist countries of Europe to boycott. The only real result, besides the Soviets missing out on the world's largest breakdancing exhibition, was that the United States won all of the medals that year. Neither the

To Archer, or not to Archer. That is the question.
Major Tom

I often wonder if anynoe reads what I write every week in the Blog. It's actually pretty time consuming, coming up with something to write about, and then sitting down and actually doing it. Additionally, I always go through all the answer sheets to find the stupidest answers so we can make fun of them together in the Blog. It takes a while, since Dini does most of the scoring, and I look at the sheets for the first time when I do the Blog. So, it's pretty cool when Quizzers let me know that not only do they read my Blog every week, but they like how I write. If you are reading this right now, thank you. Now do me a favor, and click 'like' on the Blog so it shows that people are reading it. So

Paul McCartney? Oh, right, that guy Kanye West tried to make famous!
Major Tom

Let me clue you guys in to the secret to winning at Quiz. The difference between the teams in the top 5 and the others is music knowledge. A lot of you guys are terrible at music. Remember that Round 2 is always music and it's a 16 point round. Know your music, joker the round, and you could have 32 points. Last night, the visual round was also about music. People guessed The Beatles for just about every single musician pictured in the visual round. People, you need to know The Beatles. They are the biggest band of all time, and they appear in at least half of the Quizzes.

A Quiz well fought
Major Tom

I'm not going to lie to you. While I would never do anything to influence the outcome of the Quiz, I root against the Ginja Ninjas every week. Let's face it, they need to be humbled a bit. Don't get me wrong, they are my friends, but nothing would make me happier than seeing them lose. Well, that's not exactly true. There are several things that would make me happier. Most involving gigantic sums of money being given to me, or filthy sex stuff. But I digress. I think we all agree that some team needs to snatch victory from the redheaded jaws of the Ninjas and their resident Chemist. I would be happy to see anyone do the job, but I would especially like to see it done by one of my teams that

It seems like there is a lot of action around campus this summer. I don't remember ever having such huge crowds at the Dub on Quiz night in previous summers. I'm really happy to see it. The more the merrier. Here's the thing, though. It's gotten really hot, and I get that everyone is ordering a ton of water, but just make sure you guys keep drinking beer and eating food as well. Not only are beer and bar food two of the basic food groups, but we need to make sure we keep the Dub in business. Just ordering water isn't going to pay the bills, including the bill for Quiz.Besides, you don't really want to be sober when you hear me read out your terrible scores, do you? Have you guys noticed

Quiz is like therapy. Bad stuff happens, yet being among my Quizzers makes me happy regardless. Yesterday was a perfect example. I got the news that my aunt had been hit in a crosswalk in Phoenix by a hit and run driver. She was in the hospital, unconscious, and not expected to survive. I had two choices. I could sit around the house and wait for news, or I could go to Quiz and try to escape for a few hours. Obviously, I chose Quiz therapy. For a couple of hours, you guys helped me to forget what was going on in my family and allowed me to feel much better for a bit. The show must go on. So, a few things.

This is how civil wars get started.
Major Tom

In the world of Pub Quiz, there is nothing more polarizing than sports. There are certain Quizzers and certain teams that never stop talking about how there needs to be more sports in the Quiz. The reason they don't win is obviously because there aren't enough sports questions. The lack of sports rounds is the only thing holding them back from glory. Then there are the other Quizzers who hate it when we have any sports questions. It's GEEKS who Drink! Not Sports Bros who Drink! In fact, why aren't there more science questions? If we wanted sports rounds, we could go find a bar that has one of those crappy trivia companies! I'll be honest, I sympathize with both sides. I do think that there

Smells like daddy issues.
Major Tom

Last night was a pleasant surprise. School is out, but yet the place was still packed solid with Quizzers. Something was a little strange though. Scorekeeper Dini and I were just about the only people in the house who weren't in kickball t-shirts. Apparently, we've missed the boat on some new cult that's arrived in town. A cult based on a game from middle school P.E. If it sounds like I'm making fun of it, I might be, a little bit. On the other hand, that's a sport I could actually do without looking like too much of a fool. This might be something I have to look into. I have this weird group of friends who, long story short, met on the Internet years ago. This week marks 5 years since

Not all Sanchezes are dirty.
Major Tom

Occasionally, our Quizzes get a little risque.  A little off-color, if you will.  I get it.  I have no problem with it.  My sense of humor is pretty much open to anything.  There isn't much that can shock me or gross me out.  I feel like the type of people who come to Quiz are fairly similar, and that pretty much anything goes.  That being said, last night I contacted the company and asked them to send me a replacement question.  The last question on the "Dirty" round was about a (hopefully) fictional sex act known as the "Dirty Sanchez".  If you don't know what that is, I'm not going to tell you.  Go check out Urban Dictionary if you're curious.
