Quiz And Taxes
Devin

Nothing in life is certain, except for- well, every Tuesday, right? Let The Wookie Win! May 4th, 7 PM, we’re going to a galaxy far, far away, and also simultaneously in Pizza Rock. It’s gonna be awesome. Hey, let’s get to the quiz. The relevant Onion article. No mention of Mel Gibson. I don’t know why 8-bit covers are so much fun. Probably because of eternal nostalgia mixed with the fun of new things. I love this

Taking this blog by the reins
Devin

Now, I love all my quizzers. I hope you all know that. You’re like my children- and least that’s the excuse I use when I justify how many Dad Jokes I make you all listen to each week. And why you never call. It’s okay, it’s okay, it’s just that your mother and I worry about you. Wait, where was I? Right. I love all my quizzers. But, see, when I know there’s an answer you should know better about? Well, sometimes I just have to make mention of it. And, I mean, when it’s a team who’s been around for a while, maybe that deserves a little teasing… But I tease with love. Hey! Let The Wookie Win: A Star Wars Quiz! This

Wait, what month is it?
Devin

Hey, happy April! At least I hope your April has started out well. I mean, April is always a little rough to start off, what with having the worst excuse for a holiday at the beginning. And in the desert, it’s often the first month of our seven months of summer, so I dread it a little bit. It’s a rough month for me. But, hey, first quiz of the month, right? It’s a new week, a new chance to win! And, hey, we saw some pretty close results here. But we’ll get to that… Speaking of the first month, if you get the email about the quiz, you may have noticed there was a note about how “It’s March already and…” Whelp. And if you

Dino-MIGHT! (Have been outside)
Devin

Look. This ain’t your quizmaster’s first rodeo, am I right? I’ve been around a little bit. I like to think I know what’s going on. But none of that… None of that really prepares you to look out and see a T. Rex on the patio at Pizza Rock. Yeah. It was a pretty weird experience. *takes a drag from a pretzel rod like it's a cigarette* I’ve seen some shit, man. Anyway, what was I going to talk about? Oh! Hey! Quiz! I mean, I guess the T Rex deserves to be out and celebrate. Congrats on winning the Monopoly token competition, buddy!

Hey now
Devin

Now, I’m no a fancy city lawyer, I’m just a simple quizmaster with some simple country wisdom. Where I come from, I reckon there’s been a few three times when a team has found that their clever team name has been taken by another. Now such a situation is never a fine one, but I’m just a neutral arbitrator and can’t decide who gets to hold what names. Such questions, in my experience, just have to be settled in th- Oh, come on, I can’t even say “death match” before I get told no? Ugggh. Fine. Do you ever think the Jolly Green Giant feels bad that his sidekick is called cuter than him? Like they’re all, “Oh,

Curses! FOILed again!
Devin

Man, I was all ready to start working on this blog post and talk about the quiz and stuff, and then “Dear Future Husband” started playing, and ugggh. That song is the worst. It’s unrelated to anything tonight, but seriously, that song. Terrible. Anyway, where was I? Hey! Today was Pi Day! I hope you all celebrated with a pizza. Because, I mean, pizza pi? Right? And you were at Pizza Rock. They’ve got good pizza. I hope you all know that by now. Okay, right. Quiz. Wait, a Mudslide is a middle-ager drink? They’re delicious! Kahlua and Bailey’s! Look, I’m a huge fan of Bailey’s in basically anything. Also, I thought

March comes in like a deathmatch
Devin

No, but really, I’m still not allowed to run deathmatches to break ties? What happened? I thought this was America, dammit! Ties were the cool thing today- we had ties for first, fourth, sixth, and eighth place. In fact, only one team wasn’t tied with another team at the end of the day. Weird, right? I mean, Brigham Young was definitely overselling Salt Lake City there. (I’m still convinced it was settled with the thought of “Oh, we’re finally out of those damn mountains, we’re stopping here.) But dang if I don’t love the views around Salt Lake

Hey, uh, Mardi Gras, right? Pancake Tuesday! It’s the most wonderful Tuesday of the year! I mean, except for all the other Tuesdays that there’s pub quiz, so hey, maybe it’s just one of the 52 most wonderful Tuesdays of the year. Okay, fine, Tuesdays are awesome. Look. Say what you will about the Oscars, but Lin-Manuel Miranda deserved his EGOT. “How Far I’ll Go” is a way better song, that should have won everything.  There are so many options available to replace the president at the

Devin

Okay, fine. Everyone was allowed to leave. Your quizmaster does not have authorization to put teams in the Thunderdome. Geeks Who Drink does not host a quiz in Bartertown. Yet. Okay. So. Where was I? Oh, right, quiz! What’d you guys think about that first round of questions? I thought it rocked. Eh? Eh? Because it was about geology? Okay, fine. (My first semester at college, I signed up for a geology class that was at 8 am. That was a mistake. Your quizmaster is not a morning person.) Do you know how many people attended the first heavy metal concert in Antarctica? Only about 120 people. It was pretty chill. Sorry, your

Love conquers all- except pub quiz. That takes answers.
Devin

Hey, Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you spend some time with someone you love, even if that’s just yourself. And I hope you’re hyped for discount candy tomorrow! Hit the stores early, that stuff is gonna clear out fast. I don’t know if anyone noticed it, but I skipped songs from playing early in the evening- that was because I knew it was one of the audio round clips, and didn’t want to give it away too early. The song was Brimful of Asha, which is just an awesome song in general, and is a tribute to Asha Bhosie, an Indian singer who performed more than 12,000 songs for Indian films.

I mean, I'm a Ravenclaw anyway
Devin

Okay, let’s start this out with the most important part. I’d like to make a formal apology to anyone I might have offended with one of our questions last night. Look, sometimes, things get a little heated. And things may have been said in a bit of haste. So, I apologize: in no way did I mean it as an insult when I said “Suck it, Hogwarts.” Look, yes, Grand Central Station has the ceiling painted like the night sky, too, but it’s not animated, okay? Hogwarts still wins that one. Oh, wait, sorry, Dumbledore just decided that freaking Gryffindor won it instead of everyone. Great. That’s fair. Whatever. Sorry, where was I? Okay, so I

Bribing your Quizmaster with cake will not help
Devin

But it can’t hurt, right? Feel free to deliver offerings of delicious baked goods to your quizmaster. I approve. I mean, I probably shouldn’t eat cake when it’s the only thing I’ve had since about 11:45 this morning, but hey, you’re not my mom. (Except, I mean, for my mom, who’s reading this. But nobody else.) Hey, quiz! Round one really did point out how many tragic and weird deaths we have to read about in school. And it didn’t even get into Where The Red Fern Grows. I think that’s probably one of those questions that defines you, which book made you cry more as a kid- Where The Red Fern Grows or Bridge To Terabithia? There

So. Uh. There’s a lot of stuff going on out there, right? Yeeesh. Let’s, um, let’s talk about quiz, huh? Okay, first off, one moment of political stuff. It’s quiz related. But shout-out to the folks from Geeks Who Drink who marched on Saturday. We had a group go to Washington that coordinated through our main office, and a lot of folks checking out their local scene to support, too. Good for everyone who marched.

Quiz Progress Goes 'Boink'
Devin

Okay, so tonight’s quiz started off on a great note. Why? Because it’s just a fact that “diphthong” is a fun word to say. I mean it. Say it to yourself a few times. Maybe five or so. Say it loud! Let other people hear you! Okay, now they’re just looking at you funny, sorry about that. I’ve always had a particular problem with Die Another Day, as Bond movies go. I mean, mainly because I always like Miranda Frost, even if she was a villain, so I was pretty disappointed when she died. If only she could have escaped or something… MortuarySuppliesUSA.com! Good news, everyone- I went to look up how many toe tags you get for $42, and I learned

Devin

Okay, so. About tonight. I’m sorry, folks. But rules are rules. That’s why they’re written down. That’s why I go over them every quiz at the top of the show. I try to keep an eye out, and, obviously, I’m not always perfect at that. But the rules are the rules. They apply to everyone equally. And I gotta stick to them. Now, I mentioned this during the quiz. But I just feel like it deserves mentioning again- let’s look at this map here. See what countries neighbor Pakistan? Because I got some answers that were just… incredibly off-base. But plenty of

Sorry, Avogadro was not Jenny's last name
Devin

So, did you notice the theme running through today’s quiz rounds? I mean, I thought it was decently subtle. It’s always better that way. Y’know, you don’t want it to just be all in your face, Wham! Right? Sorry. I had to make One More Try. Okay, but as long as we’re on a George Michael mention, have you read the stories about his philanthropy, and how he basically did a lot of it with the promise that no one would ever find out about it as long as he was still alive? That’s kind of amazing to me. I’d read some stories about people speculating that he’d lost a lot of money to drugs, but the fact it was actually being given to charity…
