We Are the Crystal Gems
Sgt. Jinglehonks

Meaghan is finally back from her super-duper-top-secret-double-whammy trip to California, and who knows what’s happened in the meantime? California’s a weird place (if you didn’t notice me rooting for the A’s while hosting quiz last night, I’m implying that I’m originally from the Bay Area), and who knows, maybe she has an extra letter in her name now. Is she now… Meaghann? Meeaghan? Meagghan? Mmeaghan? Scrambled, like Gmenaaeh? How is that pronounced? Gah-men-AEIIIIII? Welcome back, Gah-men AEIIIIII! We’ve had three different quizmasters during your disappearance, all with different styles, attitudes,

The Question Block Challenge

What's up Nintendudes and Nintenduettes...wait is that too cheesy? Well I'm over here cheesin' because of the awesome time I had at quiz last night. We had 33 teams duke it out to see who knew the most about Nintendo's hidden crevasses and nuances. Thanks to Andrew and others who brought in Nintendo Swag to give away. You know I gotta say it: YOU DA REAL MVP. You ever give your friends questions about your fave games and see what they know? I feel like I did that for you last night. Shout out to Lobster Crew who came in all sporting Link's Pajamas so they won an 8-Bit Plushie of Link. Also I think one of them is Captain Falcon in civilian clothes.

Sean McNeil (Shamu) was the fourth killer whale ever captured and was the third orca ever displayed in a public exhibit. He was the first orca to survive more than 13 months in captivity and was the star of a very popular killer whale show at SeaWorld San Diego in the mid - late 1960s. After his death in 1971, the name Shamu continued to be used in SeaWorld "Shamu" orca shows for different killer whales in different SeaWorld parks. Little is known about Sean McNeil’s reincarnation as an audio visual tech nerd and publisher, but it has been proven that he was, in fact, a killer whale.

Two Tall Dudes in 90-Degree Weather
Sgt. Jinglehonks

Meaghan is off having adventures in California and shooting a film, so all the best to her. As somebody who studied film in Los Angeles and worked in the industry for about five years around the turn of the millennium, I commend her. It ain’t easy. I am in the first Spider-Man film. (You know that shot when Spidey is swooping between the taxis and then swings high into the sky? I’m the only guy in a gray jacket, I’m near a hotdog stand, and I’m a fes feet from Sam Raimi, who is in a suit and hailing a taxi.) I’m in Seabiscuit.

Waking Up Hungover is the Worst
SaraColeman Campbell

I always love hosting at Hotel Hotel, and yesterday was no exception.  A great crowd showed up to play Geeks Who Drink pub quiz, with a total of 21 teams staying for all 8 rounds.  I was especially happy to have Marcus there to score keep for me.  It allowed me to have more time to talk to the wonderful quizzers, and drink my wonderful beverage.  I've been reducing my alcohol consumption this summer, so two cocktails definitely hits me a lot harder than it used to.  Waking up this morning was the most difficult thing I've had to do all week. Last night, Vasholes won second to last place, but since they left early, it went to our third

Hey there!

My name is Sara Lydia Coleman Campbell, and I run the most awesome GWD quiz at the Three Lions Pub in Downtown Redmond.  When I'm not quizmistressing, I'm probably playing superheroes with the boys I nanny for or eating way too much hummus.  At night I get to cuddle up to a 13-pound mutt better known as the love of my life, Edmund.  Except for that one time he bit me and I went to the ER.  

I love hosting as well as playing quiz.  I also like drinking Red Bull and taking naps.  Sometimes I'll drink a Red Bull right before I take a nap.  

If you want to get to know me more, come check out the quiz next Tuesday at 8pm!

California Dreaming for this QM
Quiz Wiggles

Well, well, well… last night’s video round debut was a smashing success, if I do say so myself. (A special thanks to the tall man with the broken arm who helped me reach the input button on the suspended projector. You’re the tops!) Isn’t it exciting to have glittering visual clues and gorgeous actor faces in motion instead of listening to the sound of my voice all the time?! I don’t know about you, but I am over the moon. I mean what a fantastic medium and what a novel addition to our quiz!   Now that we’ve had a chance to bond over our passion for visual storytelling, and now that we’ve collectively mastered the technical components

My name is Meaghan.  I make weird voices and corny puns and stupid theme songs.  My theme songs are usually melodically interesting, but don't make a lot of literal sense.  Sometimes people think it's funny.  Sometimes it's just awkward.  When I am not quizzing I like to ribbon dance with cats.

T-Shirt Contest Off the Leash

There are many reasons why dogs are better than humans. 1      They are cuddlier and softer than the majority of humans you know. Including babies. 2      They are very efficient at cleaning up food spills off the floor. Also eco-friendly. 3      They never turn down a chance to spend quality time with you. Even if it’s a long car ride where you insist on listening to your mixed tapes from high school. 4      They know how to appreciate the simple things in life. For example, head scratches and peeing outdoors. 5      THEY WILL

Poop Quiz Therapy
Quiz Wiggles

So as many of you know I am sure, the anal stage in Freudian psychology is the period of psychosexual human development that occurs at about one to three years age and is generally characterized by learning to use the toilet and a fascination with the anus and all its biological functions. Something about last night’s quiz makes me speculate, however, that many modern day quizzers may still suffer from unresolved issues that may have never been put to rest in this stage of their childhood.    According to Freud, fixations can develop in each of the psychosexual stages develop when there is not enough gratification given during a particular developmental stage.

Thanks for the Super Warm and Sweaty Welcome
Quiz Wiggles

Thanks for coming out to quiz with me last night, Hotel Hotel, and for giving me such a warm welcome! (Like literally, so warm.)   But like I said last night, I can't tell if I feel more like an evil stepmother or a rebound girlfriend taking over for the bright shining star that was Brittany.  All I know for certain is that I can never hope to completely fill her shoes.  At this point, I’ve come to terms with the fact that my sartorial choices will never be such a lovely combination of quirky, sassy confidence as hers.  And though try as I might my voice breaks or is in the completely wrong key when I try to do those really cool, off-the-cuff vocal

Pain Killers for Days

So on Monday I decided to take a boxing personal training class and on Tuesday and Wednesday, I thought I was going to die.  I was in so much physical pain, I could barely get out of bed.  I didn't even know if I was going to be able to make it through the entire quiz without falling into the fetal position.  But I made it out alive, and I don't think I could have done it without such an awesome enthusiastic group of quizzers.  Seriously, guys, y'all are pretty fucking fantastic.  Well, you and the codeine that's been getting me through the past two nights.

I'll Miss You Weekly
Brittany "Michael Bay" St. Julien

In preparation for my move from Seattle to Portland, I’ve shared parting words with a lot of folks. I’ve said I’ll visit, that they should visit me, that they’ll hardly know I’m gone. I’ve said I’ll miss them.    "I’ll miss you weekly."   One of my quizzers wrote that into a card, given to me on my final night as Quizmaster at Hotel Hotel. Yes, I’ve said the phrase “I’ll miss you” more times this week than I can count, but I keep grabbing that card and reading back over that line.

Friends call me Michael Bay because I love action and make a lot of sound effects with my mouth.

Well, nobody calls me that, really. But they should for the above reasons.

If I had to rank my top 3 books, it'd look something like:

1)Plato- The Republic
2)Heinlein- Stranger in a Strange Land
3)Silverman- The Bedwetter

Or something.

What an incredible quiz! I just want to say that I love each and every--   NO! Don't do it, QM Brittany. Not yet. You've still got a week.   Ahem. I was just thinking about this week's Music Round ("Oops, I Forgot To Write A Solo!"), and I'm starting to believe those musicians had the right idea. The chorus of the song is its lifeblood, you guys! When Person A asks Person B if they've heard a song, they'll almost always hum a portion of the chorus for them. Why? Because it's the most recognizable (and often the most enjoyable)

HelloHello HotelHotel!!!
SaraColeman Campbell

Well I had just the loveliest of times hosting at HotelHotel Pizza Bar last night!  I had been there before when it was the Dubliner, but I was excited to see the changes that came with new ownership.  I have to say I was pretty impressed with the updated atmosphere and I was lucky enough to meet the owner, a charming man named Lee.  If only I could have eaten some of the pizza (Fuck dietary restrictions) then I am sure I would have been even more pleased. There was a great crowd for quiz as well.  Everyone seemed to not totally hate me and I only was corrected on my terrible mispronunciation twice.  That's a win for me.  The t-shirt competition was

The Problem With Old People (Pt. 7)

I'm not one to call out old people (except in several past blogs), but here it goes: David Letterman should have left television a long time ago. Phew, I'm glad I finally said it! Yes, he touched generations with his humorous approach on yadda yadda whatever, etc., but he's dry, wry, and makes me sigh. We're working with high definition now, people. There's honestly something called "4k Ultra HD" that's supposed to uppercut you right in the freakin' eyeballs! It's real; I got a spam e-mail about it. Anyway, why waste pixels like that on an old comedy goat?   "But Quizmaster Brittany,"
