Haiku Do You do?
Dustin

What a tightly fought and contested Pub Quiz this week. 9 points were all that separated the top spot from the opposite of the top spot. From some of your reactions last night, I think there were a few correct answers that team mates were talked out of that ended up being pretty costly. But lets get right to the top of the charts! Number one team this week with a bullet is Drink Tank. Anchored by a charismatic couple who have been as loyal to the IBU Pub Quiz as they are delightful in person, they have been honing their trivial skills and out of now decided that they were done with the bottom half of the board and jumped right to number 1. Good job you guys.

Super Roe
Dustin

What would a superhero called Roe be like? The question of the ages from our first round last night. A superhero round? It's like I wrote it myself. (I didn't) and not one team could ace it. What geeks are these that this round couldn't get aced? Was no one reading comics in the pouches-a-plenty era of the 90's? I think one team was able to figure out Spawn. I liked Spawn back in the day. Gotta give your Hell-themed super heroes a chance. But a popular guess to Question 5 in round 1 was....Roe. Perhaps this should've been the sidekick to Aquaman? OR a sidekick to those two old dudes on Spongebob? Something to ponder. Not acing round 1 did nothing to to slow down Incrane in

Marching into Madness
Dustin

Persistance pays. Stick-to-itneve*ness. all the sports cliches. Starting out with a shout out to Kim Jong Unanimously Awesome. NOt because that tool is awesome in anyway, but because the cool couple rocking that team name has been devoted Quizsters from the jump. Unfortunately, their good cheer and enthusiasm did not exactly translate into....top finishes. But tonight, just like 80's rock icons Ratt, they were out of the cellar, tying for 4th place! Boom! Team name of the night went to the other 4th place team, I Rolled a 2 for Intelligence. Sweet, and i mean sweeeeet D & D reference. I might have, just maybe, spent an evening or 10 playing

The Bork there Ever was by Bork
Dustin

Swedish Chef cover songs for Round 2 forever. As far as I'm concerned we could do that every week. Especially any that have Beaker singing background vocals. oh my goodness, that just slayed me. Everytime i listened to that round. When I listened to it when prepping for last night, during last night, when I played again once i got home to annoy the bejesus out of my wife....so good. You guys agree right? Fun night and lively crowd of geeks last night. Sorry if I was having trouble keeping the trains running on time last night. I didn't mean to get you guys back home any later than normal. I hope you'll forgive a bit, my wife and I got the keys to our new home yesterday. Well,

Stepmom? Really America? Wow.
Dustin

Those of you there for that particular bonus question, you know what i'm referring to. And to the gentleman who got it right, sure you saw that Julia Roberts movie. SUUURREEEEE. And to the guy who guessed first and got it wrong....stepsister? Yikes. I of course am meaning this all in good fun, as the son of a former swearing-is-like-breathing Alaskan fisherman, I tend to enjoy it when the Pub Quiz veers from PG-13 into R territory. Speaking of R territory, anyone else hype about seeing Logan?!?!? I'll be writing something about that next week in advance of a movie that might make me cry. DON'T JUDGE. So after a week or two of Round 2's that everyone jokerized because they were easy

Happy Too Much Pink B.S. in Stores Day
Dustin

Big night! BIG night, as there was maybe the most people we've had in the IBU Public House yet, to play the pub quiz. it was a whole bunch of familiar faces and even a couple of new ones. Imports from down south in the Peoples Socialist Republic of Eugene. So start with a shout to 60 Percent of the Time We're Right Every Time, who finished in....opposite of first place. so, are we sure it's even 60 percent? TEAM NAME OF THE NIGHT: and the first of a passel of prizes went out to Kong 2012: Never Forget. I'll never forget Peter Jackson's post Rings love letter to King Kong....hell that movie was so long I fell like I'm still watching it n Quick

Happy Birthday to the Artist Formerly Known as Boom
Dustin

ok, so admit it. we took it easy on you on Round 2 this week. Just about every team had double digit points in that round without benefit of jokerizing. So yeah, you're welcome. Not that I have any say in what the songs are. But you're still welcome.. So some of you will know this but for those of you that don't there are a particular group of geeks that I've been lucky to have at damn near every quiz I used to host at a different venue. Over there they used to always go by the Legion of Boom....and the former boomers were pretty good over there and while they may be going by Baby Groot tonight, they were right back to their winning ways. And thanks for the cake guys,

All Hail the 14th
Dustin

Oh baby I hear the blues a callin', tossed salad and scrambled eggs....or so goes not only one of our teams tonight but the theme to one of....nay....THE best sitcom of the 1990's. Yeah, I said it. I know that there's this OTHER 90's sitcom that's supposed to be the bomb dot com or whatever. Over-freakin-rated. Yeah, I said it. So props to Tossed Salad and Scrambled Eggs for recognizing some freaking genius. Important civics lesson learned tonight in that if anyone gets a flag burnin' urge you can thank the 14th amendment. Which is a neat thing to know considering there's probably going to be a spike in the burning of Old Glory. Now I don't want you to think

More Movie Themes
Dustin

Good crowd last night at IBU. Good job everyone, it was fun. at least it was for, I always hope that translates to the geeks in attendance that are actually playing the quiz. ANd a good surprise for me as the crew from one of my recent dearly departed venues showed up to play. Those young rapscallions said they were going to come play, I'll be damned if they didn't make good on that. thanks you all. I hope that you guys finished behind the 5th place team in a 6 team contest doesn't discourage you. The Legion of Boom tonight was going under cover as F*** Schmizza, which is meant as a loving tribute to those youngsters mentioned above. Second place to....ugh....We're

Quiztastic Heroes One and All

Well that was a treacherous little commute for Quiz night now wasn't it? Special thanks to you Geek Heroes that braved another Fury Ice Road to make it out to the IBU Pub Hizzle for Monday's Pub Quiz. That's right I said it! You're all damn heroes! And that's right I also said, hizzle. And as we discovered last night I'm over 40. So take that info as you will. Special thanks to our brewery partner this Monday, Pelican Brewing! Especially their rep Maya who drove all the way from freaking Oregon City?!?! That took awhile. So thanks to her for making it and for the extra cool schwag I got to give away. They may have finished in third but that was easily the best team name of

Dustin

Happy New Year my Monday night nueclus of nerdom! Thanks to those of you that braved the weirdly winter like Willamette valley weather to show up for the first Pub Quiz of the new year at the IBU Public HOuse. We didn't have a tone of teams, but all the teams seemed to have a ton of people. And those people having a ton of brains between them. So it was a good match to be sure. In 4th place probably the newest of everyone to the PUb Quiz but I think we might have them hooked. The Beautiful Babies show up every week as if their lives are filled with 1000% smiles and rainbows. Please keep coming back because my life sure as isn't. Bronze place goes to.....CORGI

Quiz Nights are built on hope
Dustin

Well we had our last Monday Quiz night before we take a little break for some more holiday goodness. So make sure you guys all enjoy/pretend to enjoy all that sweet family time for Christmas, or Hanukkah, or Kwanzaa, or if you're hailing Satan or whatever. I'm fine with any of it. Also this was our first Pub Quiz in a post-Rogue One World, and I gotta say something about that. So lets get to it. Electoral College you Had One Job finished in last place....which unfortunately is somewhat appropriate. But the Electoral College did do their job yesterday. Huzzah. And that's all I'll say about that. But shout out to your guys' WALL-E themed pets. That's awesome. Fourth

Wild Rogue Week
Dustin

As we get closer and closer to whatever it is you call the end of year holiday we all, well...., most of us celebrate, the more intimate the gatherings for your weekly Pub Quiz. At least that is my experience in my time proctoring for GWD. As we get into this time of year, your discretionary income goes to gift buying, and/or travel costs, and/or family coping medicines (i.e. your bourbons, your vodkas, your beers, your now legal in this this state smokables) and the weather sucks, maybe you're more inclined to stay warm at home. And I just want to say, I get it. I understand my fellow geeks, I totally do. So extra thanks to those who did make it out to the IBU Public House this

Magic Rage Inducing Flutes
Dustin

Well, that was exciting! I am of course talking about how the Pub Quiz ended this Monday night within the salubrious confines of the IBU Public House with our winners Inconthevable (or as i call them, Incognito Smarty Pints) winning by just a single point! Just barely edging out Team Culmination who finished second! AND THEY just beat the third place team Broseph Stalin by a deuce! But Bro Stal takes the second place prize by default as Culmination was there to be IBU's brewing partner this week and brought some sweet swag to hand out. So kudos to my new friend Paul from Culmination. Oh, was that not what you thought

That Was How Many Calories?
Dustin

How was your T-giving? Did you crush your fair share of mashed potatoes and gravy? Did you have a bonus meat selection like I did and get your ham on as well as the usual Turkey bird? Stuffing of the stove top variety perhaps? I wont lie, love that stuff. I know for a lot of people its nothing special, but every year my brother-in-law and I warily eye each other over a massive bowl of stuffing that hardly anyone else cares about. Anyway, my week of Thanksgiving was pretty great. And it was all week as I had almost all of it off from my day job. My teen daughter flew up from her regular California home to be with the Oregon side of her family. AKA the freaking cool side of her family. And it

A What-load of wine?
Dustin

How much quiz is in a buttload of quiz? at least 64 questions, am I right? Also a buttload of sweet swag to give away to the worthy, or as my whim decided, from the awesome Jim from Baerlic Brewing. Thanks to those guys for being in the house and bringing along t-shirts and stickers and those cool glasses, that was fun having extras to give away to you quizsters. I would like to think you would concur. Special shout at the top to the team who finished in Awesome Place (code for last). My Favorite Team Ever! And considering I was related to every lady at that table, that team name is pretty accurate. It's not something that actually happens often that I have family
