Dolly Parton Wrote What?!
Josh Prime

Hey Geeks, This was a great quiz this evening. I wasn't training anyone (shocking) so I actually had you all to myself tonight. This is good considering I was all about so many of our rounds tonight! First we had a round of lullaby covers of songs. It was a great round that taught us all an important lesson: Dolly Parton wrote and originally performed "I Will Always Love You." This was a big shock to most of the room, don't worry I still gave you points for Whitney Houston even though that is totally wrong and you should bask in your wrongness. Round 3 was 2.5 minutes of naming as many C-elements that you could. That was a lot of fun, but nothing will beat round number

Hey Friends, I'm Josh Prime and I am from the most hated state in the country, New Jersey (seriously, they did studies). Whatever, I don't have to pump my own gas and never make left turns so... deal with it. Sometimes I mispronounce things and blame being from Jersey too, maybe that's why people hate the state. Aside from my Jersey pride, I am all about pop culture and video games (Nick Arcade anyone?... Anyone?). I keep suggesting a round on 90's Nickelodeon, I want to see everyone rocking out to the All That Theme song - remember when that was a thing? It's been real, it's been fun, its been real fun. See ya at the quiz.

Happy Birthday JoshPrime!
Josh Prime

Hey Geeks! Happy birthday to JoshPrime! I am another year older - but so are all of you so I don't feel to bad. We had a great time tonight. We trained Cara, who did a fantastic job. Our trainees have really be awesome this past few weeks. Thank Taylor for continuing to train her staff at the best quiz in town! It was doubly helpful to have her around since tonight was my birthday and I engaged in birthday shenanigans! I knew things were rough when I tried to read the word "swordsmanship" with the "w" being pronounced. Whatever, I only turn 29 once! Everyone gets to spank the birthday boy and take a shot! and Happy Thirteenth Birthday Josh Prime!

What Exactly Was Gargamel's Reason to Want To Get The Smurfs?
Josh Prime

Hey Geeks! What a fun quiz we had tonight! We were training another newbie, Amy. I know I know, we have had a lot of trainees. I prefer to think of it that everyone just wants to learn how we do things at Alley Katz. She did a great job! I also have to admit, training people can be nice since they are supposed to do all the score. This will definitely come in handy on Thursday since it is my birthday and I have been instructed to take an Uber to the bar. Round two was a bit of a downer with all those slow paced songs. The lyric geniuses behind Blurred Lines didn't exactly make the round peppier. It just made it feel dirtier and more rapey. I got to shame two teams during the

Four Way Ties Should Be Illegal
Josh Prime

Hey Geeks! I had a great time at tonight's quiz! We snuck in an extra double points round where you had to figure out the movie we were playing a clip of when we replaced half the dialog with someone just repeating "Matt Damon" over and over again. No real rhyme of reason to it, just a little bit of randomness to make your day. In other randomness, the jigsaw clown made an appearance tonight. No further discussion, just a random fact for you to absorb.  Thursday's folks had a little harder time adjusting to the new answer packets than Tuesday. I think it is just that you are angrier people - I respect that. Regardless, we shook things up all over the place tonight and

New Answer Packets and Other Anarchy
Josh Prime

Hey Geeks! Tonight was a really fun night of pub quiz! I know I threw you all off by introducing new answer packets to your lives. You didn't seem ready to break out the pitchforks and flaming torches just yet. Maybe you are all getting a little better with change than I gave you credit for. I suspect this evening would be rife with hostility and anger. It was, as per usual, but it was all directed at me (again as per usual) and not the new answer packets. Special shout out to Nora of No Boys Allowed who forgot the name of the place she one lived. You all got 2 and a half minutes to name 8 places with J names. It was slightly

Just a Quiet Night With Joyce Carol Oates
Josh Prime

Hey Geeks! What a great quiz we had tonight. It was certainly eventful. We had a bunch of newbies come around and learn the ways of Alley Katz quizzing, including our brand spanking new trainee, Meghan. Normally I use the training time to develop a nickname for my new protégé, but mostly it was important to me that people knew there was an H in her name. Regardless, she did a great job scoring the whole quiz and putting up with my general saltiness. I was suprised there wasn't more heckling. You all are usually ready to strike at a moments notice. Maybe thats the problem, I didn't give you enough moments to prepare. Anyway, I couldn't help but

Happy Birthday Joanna!
Josh Prime

Hey Geeks! What a great quiz tonight! We were celebrating the birthday of one of our wonderful regulars, Joanna. She made us delicious snacks to celebrate. In return, we attempted to get her inebriated. I'd say that is a relatively fair trade. It would appear the folks at Geeks Who Drink we slightly obsessed with Cirque shows today. We had more than one question about them. I loved round three where I gave you a list of three things and you had to tell me which one did not belong. There was a large number of you who believed that Levitra was a Cirque show, only to find out its actually boner pills. Oh well, better luck next time. One team that did not

Josh's Anniversary Part 2 - Last One This Year
Josh Prime

Hey Geeks! What an awesome quiz we had tonight! It was the second and final celebration of JoshPrime's first full year at Alley Katz. We had rounds on Sweden, Gene Wilder and opera. My favorite round was round 5. It was the round on As Seen On TV products. I have so many questions. For starters, the portable potty. Did you get a look at that thing? That was the least portable thing I have ever seen. It had like twelve giant parts. Who knew that urination was that difficult. Also, where are you going that you need a portable bathroom with you? Note: This portable bathroom doesn't come with walls so you better be comfortable going out in the open. The only place I can see using something

Special welcome to Erin, Lian and Christa who managed to place second tonight with Kirk on their team. This, even though they were the team with the most shameful performance in the 50-50 round. The object was to tell me if it was a fact/quote about Paul Ryan or Paul Giamatti. Apparently, Kirk planned to read up on them but then let his actual job get in the way. A lesson learned there.

Do You Get Off To The Royal Tenenbaums? Jeff Does.
Josh Prime

Hey Geeks! Tonight was a super fun quiz. We wound up getting into a few conversations that were only slightly off topic. For example, we spent a great deal of time talking about the porn parody of the Royal Tenenbaums. Who knew that Jeff of The Dog Days Of Fisting was a porn connoisseur. I suppose his team did. The challenge for them this week, a team name that combined their love of Star Wars with their love of fisting. We also talked about the movie 9 to 5. I talked about Lily Tomlin sending me a VHS copy of her film because of a letter my mom wrote her. I know my mom reads this, so I am sure she will be happy to know that is still on my

It was a round all about Harrys, curses, and children. Once again I am forced to tolerate another conversation about Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

And Up Next, A Double Points Round!
Josh Prime

Hey Geeks! Thanks for coming out to quiz tonight! It was a great evening for super high scores. This is both because Alley Katz teams are crazy smart, but also because we had four, count them, four double points rounds tonight. Literally half of our rounds were double points tonight, and that is definitely reflected in your scores. I can't tell you the last time I saw a three digit score, but there it is. I really was into the visual round tonight. You were expected to write either the show the character was from (for one point) or give me their last name (for two points).

Last time her mom was here it was Halloween and I was dressed as a one eyed monster, so definitely making great impressions all around. It was also training night for Pokemon. That's not a Pokemon Go reference (Red team for life). No, we have a new QuizMaster in town who has a real name, I assume. However, I just call him Pokemon and you should too. He did a great job with the quiz and scored his ass off all night. Round four made me break from my normal cool and collected quizmaster

Hey Geeks! What an awesome quiz we had tonight! You were all a little miffed that I was asking for album titles during round two tonight. Despite your grumbling, most teams still did really well. It was not ok to just guess "Greatest Hits" for all the albums. While that might be true, it still is not quite what we were looking for. Personally, round four was my favorite tonight. I read you the description of board games as if I was someone who was not interested in playing them. It wasn't exactly an acting challenge for me to be super negative about everything, but you all already knew that. I have been hosting at Alley Katz for nearly a year, you know what a pain in the ass

Australopithecus Can Be Spelled Many Ways
Josh Prime

Hey Geeks! Happy Thursday folks. We had another great night at Alley Katz tonight. Quiz was great, though round 6 was absolutely my favorite. One of the questions was about Australopithecus. I didn't take points off for spelling, but I do think we need to recognize Fat Guyz for being the only team in the room to spell it right. I was impressed. Meanwhile the rest of you illiterate bastards couldn't spell for shit.  I can't be mad though. You are quizzers who can't spell, I am a quizmaster who can't speak. It all works out in the end.
