Kraft Mac and Cheese is Not Good for You
RESII

Note: Hypocrite alert! I ate Mac and Cheese last night, albeit a reasonable amount.  Read on. If I had a million dollars (We wouldn’t have to eat Kraft dinner)But we would eat Kraft dinner (Of course we would, we’d just eat more)And buy really expensive ketchups with it (That’s right, all the fanciest - Dijon ketchups) –Barenaked Ladies As intrepid quizzers learned last night, Kraft is now partnered with ketchup connoisseurs Heinz so perhaps the wedding of Mac and Ketchup will happen. It sounds terrible but perhaps. There was actually a whole round on macaroni and cheese, which, it turns out, is not

Ranking the Brat Pack

1. Rob Lowe. May be the only actor in history whose sex tape hurt his career. Now, the perennially handsome one has rightfully taken his place amongst the pantheon of awesome actors. BEST WORK: Wayne’s World, Tommy Boy, The West Wing, Parks and Recreation) 2. Anthony Michael Hall. Underrated actor who often stole the show comically until becoming jacked. (BEST WORK: National Lampoon’s Vacation, Sixteen Candles, Dark Knight) 3. Demi Moore. Somehow—pretty sure operations had something to do with it—she became like the female Benjamin Button.

Stand-Up Comedians not Featured in Round Seven but Should Be Mentioned Because They are Very Funny
RESII

I was a big fan of last night’s round seven and not just because of the scoring was really easy. No, I also appreciated stand-up comedians get some love. Eddie Murphy and Robin Williams are easily identifiable but how about Silicon Valley’s Kumail Nanjiani—although many teams did correctly name him. Here are some other comedians to listen to: Brian Regan. I think Regan is my favourite comedian because he works clean and is still hilarious. He is incredibly self-deprecating and his stories are told really well while doing other voices. Jim Gaffigan. Another master of the other voice bit, Gaffigan is very similar to Regan and brings a lot of familial

Why isn’t “Orange Crush” the Official Song of Syracuse?
RESII

“Orange Crush” is R.E.M.’s best song. It rocks and gets people to their feet. It kicks ass. It should be the official song of a certain private school in upstate New York. Syracuse tries to brand itself as New York City’s college despite the fact that it is hours away from Manhattan. They should give that up and focus their marketing money on getting the rights to “Orange Crush.” Imagine: right before playing some lazy zone defense, the Syracuse men’s basketball team comes out to “Orange Crush” blaring. Perhaps the band plays the riff in between commercials. Perhaps it even causes Jim Boeheim to smile. Perhaps. In

How can you tell? . . . Man, Asian companies—look out . . .

That's why Will Smith is still alive!
Micah

I'd explain that, but it'd probably land me in a Secret Service investigation. Bartender Ryan and I were having a quite thorough and amusing conversation at the bar after quiz. Not only was Wednesday my first time subbing at Three Lions Pub, it was my first time there, at all! Quiz-wise, I usually host on Wednesdays, but I was cancelled -- CANCELLED -- for sportsball (Cubs, meh). But, it was nice to have a chance to make it down Colfax a bit and check out this awesome world football pub! Lita, Johnny Mac, and everyone else were great, and we all had a lovely time!   It was fitting that

Hey, everybody!

I hail from the great Commonwealth of Virginia (the Mother of Presidents). I've played piano since I was 3, I've been to 45 states, and I saw Letterman's "Late Show" live 20 times before it ended.

I'm on the Twitter @micahwhite and at Facebook /micahwhite.

Anyway, enough about me. See you at Nicolo's Pizza in Capitol Hill every Wednesday at 8pm, and Fado Irish Pub Thursdays at 8pm!

Best Featured Artist Songs
RESII

How sweet is it to be a featured artist on a song? You get to come in and steal the song in many respects. Here are some songs that represent the best of a song utilising a guest musician. “California Love” – 2Pac featuring Dr. Dre. Dr. Dre might be the featured artist MVP. In this 20 plus year-old but still fresh track, he raps along with Shakur in a rap that is positively joyous. I dare you not to smile when this track comes on the radio. “Gimmie Shelter”-Rolling Stones. Yes, this song doesn’t officially list Merry Clayton as a feauted artist but damn, it certainly should. Her heightened vocals make this not only one of the most iconic

From time to time, Geeks Who Drink breaks the piggy bank and calls in famous people to write the blog. Today’s writer is/was Westland lowland gorilla, Harambe. Take it away Harambe! … [long pause] … … [Harambe can’t write for obvious reasons.] But if Harambe could write he’d probably be proud of the fact that Boko Harambe bested 14 other teams Wednesday to win $35.

Jack Nicklaus is From My High School

Sadly, Arnold Palmer died this week. In honour, Geeks Who Drink wrote a lot of questions about golf, including one on Palmer’s greatest rival, Jack William Nicklaus. Arguably the greatest golfer ever, Nicklaus won 18 majors. He also went to my high school. Nicklaus’s nickname is the Golden Bear. Do you know how he received that? Because our high school mascot is the Golden Bear. OK, that was pretty self-indulgent. I apologise. As for the quiz, eleven teams competed, including some real heavyweights. Timmy's First Dinger, a team honouring former New York Jet Tim Tebow’s foray into baseball, took the crown. In second, Cinco

It's Decorative Gourd Season!
AlisonRudd

Ahoy! So, I walked outside this morning and sprung in to a full blown TV commercial moment. I stepped out front to walk my dog, felt that sweet, sweet 55 degree air and instinctively threw my arms out Titanic-style to welcome decorative gourd season... I mean Fall. I'll be the first to admit that pumpkin spice anything is fucking garbage and that new salted caramel nonsense is almost just as bad. Really though, that is my one and only complaint for this season. The air has a chill, leggings as pants make my ass look amazing 24/7, Oktoberfest lagers and the occasional LIGHTLY spiced pumpkin beer abound, and Halloween is just around the corner.

A Love Blog to ‘Varsity Blues,’ the Movie that Defined Nothing but Was Fun as Hell
RESII

Among other films of Wednesday’s visual round, Varsity Blues is fucking fantastic. (Full disclosure: I bought a Lance Harbor T-Shirt in 2009, back when I thought I had disposable income). Friday Night Lights on speed, Varsity Blues is the totally unrealistic, unrepentant film that contains a stripper teacher, a totalitarian Jon Voight, and multiple audibles in high school football. I saw a state championship team from the largest division in Ohio a few years back, the play calling was run, run, run, maybe pass. The point? High school football often isn’t very entertaining. But Varsity Blues sure is. Everyone hams it up (and few

“Where am I?” Harry rubbed his eyes. The portkey had worked, most assuredly. He found himself on a sidewalk next to something called a Popeye’s Chicken. Many other commercial buildings lined the street. “HARRY! Ron, he’s here, Harry’s here!” And with that, Hermione threw herself around Harry like a basilisk. “What is this place?” asked Harry. This time Ron spoke up. “It’s Colfax Avenue in the city of Denver. United States. But that’s not the crazy thing.” “What’s the crazy thing?” “It’s not the nineties anymore, Harry,” said
