I Coulda Been A Condender
Gallifreak

I love quoting movies. I'm one of those dorks that likes to throw an appropriate quote into a conversation to get a laugh or a groan. It's what I do. This is why I especially loved the round on movie quotes from tonight's quiz. Now, anyone can ask trivia questions about movie quotes where you just ask what movie such and such quote was from. But what makes Geeks Who Drink so awesome is we'll take the quote, feed it into google translate. And then translate that. And then translate that a few more times until you get something that barely resembles that quote anymore and then feed THAT back at you. The results are often hilarious and bewildering to say the

...On Blueberry Hill
Gallifreak

I'm back! Did you all miss me? After the crazyness and tons of work involved in the leadup to Geek Bowl XI in Seattle, I needed a much needed vacation and decided to stay put there in Seattle and spend an extra week to rest and relax. And get poured on every single day. Except one. Only one day of my vacation was sunny. But that's Seattle for you. Don't go changin' Emerald City! Holy crap. Where did all of you come from? I can't remember the last time we had this many teams at quiz. Let's make that a regular thing now that the nice weather is coming, ok? It was fantastic to have so many of you join us.

The Strawberry Cheesecake was Top Notch
Chandni

I can't believe none of y'all have tried the strawberry cheesecake before, and if you had, I can't believe even more that none of y'all told me you've tried the strawberry cheesecake before. It was wonderful! Light and airy, with a powerful punch of strawberry compote (I learned that word from watching Cupcake Wars) and a delicious bread crumb crust lightly layering the bottom. I bet I'd be a great judge; sign me up to eat cupcakes aaaalllll day.  Usually I say a quick thank you to everyone who came out to quiz, but today I would like to especially thank our winning team We gave up losing for Lent for bringing along the most wonderful mascot I've ever seen, little

My Bork Has Been Borked
Gallifreak

More often than not, my favourite rounds are the audio rounds. But not the regular “name these songs” rounds. Oh no. My favourites are the ones that give the audio round a special little twist. Oh, sure, you're going to name these songs, but let's throw a big ol' wrench in the works and we'll play you versions of your favourite songs sung in Gaelic. Or how about played by really horrible marching bands? Or how about we slow them down to painfully slow speeds? To me, that's when Geeks Who Drink really excels! Tonight was no exception when we proudly gave you songs “sung” by Swedish Chef. I shit you not. I loved this round. We've done

Not Just A Duck
Gallifreak

Three cheers for not getting rained on tonight! Man, it sure was getting dicey there for a bit, huh? And there I was in the only part of our patio quiz that's not covered from the elements. Like a chump! Every time it looked like the rain was going to start, it would stop. That is until round 6. It was a race to get to the end of the round before it stated to drizzle any more. Thanks to the quizzers that helped me round up my computer and sound equipment to quickly move it all to a dryer spot. We had a fun round involving Howard The Duck tonight. Now, I'm pretty sure that most of you weren't even alive when this movie

All The Hawkeyes
Gallifreak

Who would have known that there were so many characters named Hawkeye? It definitely tripped a bunch of you up tonight. It's rather amusing that nowadays whenever anyone hears the name Hawkeye people now go to Jeremy Renner and his turn as The Avengers answer to Green Arrow. Yeah. I said it! But go back a ways and people well....my age and older will go one of three ways on this. I am a comic book nerd so sure, I'll think of Hawkeye from The Avengers. But part of me also thinks of Hawkeye from the book and movie Last of the Mohicans. You see, my dad loved that movie. I mean LOVED that movie. You know how your 3 year old child/niece/nephew/whatever can't stop watching

She Totally Made It Afterall
Gallifreak

Has Drew Carey really been hosting The Price Is Right for 10 years now? Geez. My how time flies. Know how many times I've seen him host The Price Is Right on my TV? Zero. Nope. Not interested. It's not because I hate Drew Carey or anything, but he's not Bob. Bob was the real deal. I swear that what kept that show on the air so long was kids that were kept home from school because they were sick. You always got to get bundled up on the couch with some hot soup or whatever your mom would make for you and you'd watch The Price Is Right. It was the perfect comfort show to watch with your comfort food to make you feel better. This was true for a lot of people

Comedians. Great and Not So Much
Gallifreak

Great to be back quizzing at Hofbrau. There's something that I really enjoy about quizzing outside as the sun is going down and there's a nice cool breeze. Even when the weather is hot as hell, I still enjoy quizzing outside. So I thank you guys for coming out tonight and quizzing outside with me. I know that “Comedians In a Car Getting Coffee” is a thing but I can honestly say I've never seen it. Even now that it's heading on over to Netflix. I simply don't care for Jerry Seinfeld, so my interest in this series is zero. Yup. I'm one of those people that avoided his sitcom at all costs because I thought it

We're Back!
Gallifreak

WELCOME BACK! It was nice to see you guys again. We went away for about a month for Christmas and to ride out the colder weather, but damnit, we're back and better than ever. Did you miss me? It's always weird when quiz goes away for awhile. Quiz is literally my bread and butter, so when it goes away for several weeks in a row it leaves a rather prominent hole in my weekly schedule. So what did I do with my spare evenings? Why, I went to quiz of course! Paulina still had her quiz, so I went to quiz and brought along my QM friends to dominate (or get totally brutalized at) quiz. It was nice to be able to hang out and quiz

Let's Get Ugly!
Gallifreak

Christmas is coming soon kids, and what better way to get into the Christmas spirit then with an ugly sweater night! Last week we did our favourite pajamas to ring in the cooler weather, and many of you turned out for quiz in your comfiest apparel, and you did not disappoint this week either. You all have some UGLY sweaters. And that's fantastic. I opted for an ugly sweater of The Room. Why? Because I LOVE that movie. I hate it, but I also love it so much. It's terrible. There are plots that are introduced in one scene and then never mentioned again for the rest of the film. The dialogue is cringe worthy. The sex scenes

What Time Is It?
Gallifreak

The cooler weather is finally upon us, and it couldn't have come at a better time. I mean, it's damn near December now. Surely we should be dipping below 85 degrees at noon by now, right? These cooler temperatures are when this proud Canadian thrives! Hot weather makes me cranky. I sleep poorly and I'm just not comfortable. When the cooler weather comes, I can sleep bundled up and comfy, I don't seat just sitting on the couch watching tv and......PAJAMAS! I'm sorry but I may be a 42 year old grown man, but damnit, over the past few years I've fallen in love with fuzzy comfy warm pajamas. Maybe it's in part that our house

I Would LIke To Buy Some CHEEEEESE!
Gallifreak

Hello everyone! Everyone geared up for Thanksgiving? I'm super glad that I never have to travel over this particular holiday week. And frankly I just don't get it. Your children get an entire week off school. That's nuts. Back in Canada we got like, one day off and it was a Monday. There was no entire week off. We got the Monday and that was it. So anyway, we got to talk a bit about one of my favourite things at quiz tonight and that made me so happy. We got a round involving Monty Python. I love the Pythons. I was exposed to them at a very young age, and they just sort of followed me around throughout my entire life.

Everybody Knows
Gallifreak

I spent a few years living on the shores of Lake Huron. And I got very well acquainted with seagulls. And let me just tell you that I HATE seagulls. They are messy and gross and just an all around annoyance. They are nothing more than scavengers. I've even been pooped on by seagulls. TWICE. That right there is reason enough for me to hate you. One time was while at a Blue Jays game when I was a kid. Not cool. There's a reason my father used to not so affectionately call them “shit hawks”. Totally hit the nail on the head with that one. We lost another great Canadian icon the other day. Leonard Cohen, one of

What Will Tomorrow Bring?
Gallifreak

How's everyone doing? Election time is here and I'm wondering if everyone is stressed out about the possible outcome by the time the evening is done. Are your butt cheeks clenched enough? Man this election cycle has been a rough ride. But either way the outcome is not going to be pretty. I see one of two things happening. Either Trump is elected, and the free world gets to be run by a man-child with revenge issues and flies off the handle over the stupidest things. Which means we'll probably be at war with Iceland, Scotland, and Canada by June of next year. Oh and Hollywood. Can't forget that we'll be at war with Hollywood because nobody denies Trump an

That Was Halloween
Gallifreak

Happy Halloween, everyone! It was so awesome to see so many of you dressed up for Halloween and for quiz tonight. Halloween quiz is always a toss up. Either you get lots of costumes, or a guy wearing a Vote for Pedro shirt on and calling it a costume. I love costume and when they happen at quiz it's even more fun for me. But I'll admit that part of me was hoping nobody dressed up. Why would I say that? Because in my bag was my Tigger onesie. And that baby is WARM. And even though it's the end of October, we're still sitting at 82 degrees when the sun goes down. But you all came in costume, so I put that sucker on and proceeded to sweat for the next two

Worth 1,000 Words
Gallifreak

Is there anyone out there that doesn't instantly think of John Cusack in the trench coat with the boom box held aloft as “In Your Eyes” plays, any time the movie Say Anything is mentioned? That cold, dead stare that said, “Fuck you. I'm not going anywhere.” It wasn't a mopey, sappy sucky-baby, take me back sort of look. It was cold, hard defiance. Kinda creepy really when you think about it. It's just one of those iconic movie images that anyone my age and a bit younger will instantly recall. It's drilled in into our collective consciousness. Sure it's become a bit overused in recent years, but it's still an image that was with us
