Rain, Rain… Whatever. Do Your Thing.
Rev. Lindsay

I would whinge about the weather, but this is Texas.  All rain is good.  Even the year it rained so hard it ruined by Birth-Uation Party (two years ago when I graduated two days after my birthday and planned this massive party for both and it was all for naught) I didn’t complain because I have a somewhat irrational fear of drought.  I would say it’s not that irrational because of that whole “needing water to live” thing.  And we need water to make beer.  Beer is important.   ANYWAY!  Thanks players of Draught House for helping me wrap up a stellar birthday weekend!  It was a grand ol’ time.

A List of LMFAO's Victims
Dr. Rex N. F. Echt, Professor of New Jack Swing

Here’s a list of things that die (or have been killed by the playing of) every time “Party Rock Anthem” by LMFAO is played:   A single grapevine of an otherwise healthy crop in the Piedmont region. The car battery of a Macon, Georgia driver. PornHub’s link to the “Old/Young” section stops working for the duration of the song. A baby angel. One of the few surviving Sony Sport Discmans develops a persistent skip that causes its owner to consider tossing it, until it mysteriously begins working again

Nice Shorts
Dr. Rex N. F. Echt, Professor of New Jack Swing

The People Next to Me Are Totally Going to Hook Up: Seriously, I’ve been sitting next to these two talk whiskey, relationships, and lawyer stuff for hours. Dude seems to be single. Lady totally lives with her boyfriend but hates him. They should really get it over with. They both know what’s going on. I wonder how often I do exactly what they’re doing. Thing I Got The Most Compliments On During Quiz: My shorts. Which I think means my legs or junk. Just know that I think that’s what you mean when you compliment my shorts. My Favorite Round

Consensual Honey Pots
Dr. Rex N. F. Echt, Professor of New Jack Swing

Highlight of the Night:   Pre-preschool dance party to the round two tunes right in front of my quizmaster table. If that wasn’t good enough, it was topped by dad being disappointed that his daughter was dancing to Limp Bizkit’s “Rollin.”   Was that dog talking?   It sure seemed like Low Hanging Fruit’s dog was actually saying some of the things I’d just said. It didn’t bother me a bit.   OMG. Solving for X:

I’m Sorry About Your Legs and Feet
Rev. Lindsay

I did a little heartbreaking by not accepting “feet” instead of “legs” for round six/question three.  Please don’t hold it against me… my sister rambled to me once for like… an hour about there being a difference betwixt the two and in reading the question alone, I felt a twitch coming on.  She did interior design for some crazy people in Houston for a while, and now I pass that crazy to you.  It is my gift as your guest quizmaster. Hi, by the way!  You probably noticed that I wasn’t your real dad, Jonpaul… he’s safe and sound in the Puget Sound.  I promise I don’t have him

Aloha
Dr. Rex N. F. Echt, Professor of New Jack Swing

We began our quiz with a round on Hawaii. As an adolescent, I idolized Hawaii. I’m not really sure what it was that drew me to Hawaii. Perhaps it was a combination of an early childhood addiction to both “Magnum, P.I.” and “Hawaii Five-O.” Of the two, I preferred the former, imagining my grown self as a short shorts-wearing beach bum who had a helicopter pilot as a friend. He was a bum of sorts, but Thomas Magnum was never carefree the way true beach bums are. He was beholden to codes of honor and reluctantly responsible for every body who needed his help, flippant mostly to those even more uptight than himself.   Maybe

12th Week-aversary
Dr. Rex N. F. Echt, Professor of New Jack Swing

We had a packed beer garden last night for our 12th week-aversary at Draught House. Twenty teams vied for the top four slots. Four? Yep, there’s usually two, but I sweetened the pot a bit for more teams to win prizes.   What’d they win?   First and second won their usual Draught House bucks. Third prize took home six pairs of beautiful white sunglasses courtesy of the great folks at Tito’s Vodka.   But fourth prize took home: A gigantic Flash TV show backpack, a Captain America shield

In Which Your Quizmaster Insults Things Local and Sacred
Dr. Rex N. F. Echt, Professor of New Jack Swing

How do you really feel about the Cowboys?   I don’t care. I was raised a Cowboys fan, and never really gave a shit about football. Football-wise, I am a bit of a fairweather fan, depending on where I’m at. I’ve been in Rhode Island for eleven years, and became a bit of a Pats fan, but not enough for it to really count for anything. Last night, despite being stone cold sober, I was giving shit back to one of my quizmasters, Dan. He shouted, “Fuck the Patriots!”   I said, “Fuck the Cowboys,” on mic, deep in the heart of Texas.

SXGO HOME
Dr. Rex N. F. Echt, Professor of New Jack Swing

We began our quiz last night with a round on the current U.S. cabinet. Fortunately, we got that shit out of the way early. Then we could move on to something we all agree on: being tired of SXSW. GTFO SXSWers get the team name of the night award for their lack of hospitality and for being a literal rallying cry at the quiz. Hoots of insider approval littered the courtyard when I read team names. But don’t bullshit me. Half of you guys looked like you’d been through SEAL team hell week because you’d either sat through way too many movies, or spent too much time in the sun drinking and watching bands. Bitching about SXSW is a tried and true Austin

In Which My Lesbro Tries To Hook Up With Brooklyn Decker
Dr. Rex N. F. Echt, Professor of New Jack Swing

Twitter is a weird thing. My roommate and lesbro, Chelsea, didn’t make it to quiz last night. She opted instead to go to some SXSW party that Brooklyn Decker and Mark Cuban were going to be at, for the free booze and a shot at hooking up with Brooklyn Decker. You might be saying, yeah right, but have you met Chelsea? She’s brimming with confidence. Basically, I wouldn’t say it’s out of the realm of possibility. I returned home from quiz working on a great writing idea (keep coming to our quizzes because there’s great new stuff coming up) in my head and there was no Chelsea. So I went on Twitter and tagged Brooklyn Decker in a tweet

A, C, L, and U and G and J and X
Swagu

It rained Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, so your girl moves the quiz inside for Sunday. It is dry, cool evening. The Weather Gods laughed. The quiz kicked off over the sound of their laughter with a round where each answer contained the letters A, C, L, and U. Most of you wrote the letters A, C, L, and U in big letters at the top of the answer sheet, then proceeded to write down answers that contained none of those answers in a “I-Know-The-Rules-But-Fuck-You” kind of way. Well played.   The audio round was all about song titles that are questions to not ask your Tinder date. Pro tip: don’t ask your Tinder date about their criminal

Harvey K-Tel
Dr. Rex N. F. Echt, Professor of New Jack Swing

Kyrsti, the illustrious QM of a Tuesday quiz down south, swung by last night to kind of hang out and help with the quiz. As expected, the Oscars abducted some of our normal quiz folk. It doesn’t hurt my feelings; I know I’m not as much of a red carpet spectacle. I’m all wang and no Vera, as they say. (“As who say?” you might say, but just fucking trust me on this, okay?)   Kyrsti scored the best moment of the night in what could have been the worst moment of the night. She was reading round six and pronounced “Harvey Keitel,” as “Harvey Keetle” (rhymes with “beetle”).

Three Lines, Infinite Feelings
Dr. Rex N. F. Echt, Professor of New Jack Swing

I sort of remember when I first learned about haikus. I may be wrong, but I think it was when I was in fifth or sixth grade, her in Austin at Robert E. Lee Elementary. (Go Roadrunners!) I’ve always been split between thinking they were total bullshit or the easiest way to get around the poetry aspect of poetry. Limericks have just as steadfast a structure, but meter and rhyme scheme make them more cumbersome to construct. Not for everybody. I used to work at a bar in Providence, Rhode Island with a guy named Dave-Dave 2 (to differentiate him from Dave 1 AKA Lederhosen Dave AKA Counselor AKA Worst Attorney Ever, or Dave Whites Die (from his paycheck’s misspelling of his

First things first:   That flash photograph we-“you” know who “we” is-tried last night sucked.

The Almost Perfect Game
Dr. Rex N. F. Echt, Professor of New Jack Swing

Everybody heard it last night, but I have to point out this week’s winners, Platinum Vagine. They had an almost perfect quiz of 100 out of a possible 104 points. They missed one point, finally, in round seven. That point served as proof that Anne Hathaway either ruins everything, or is an unexpected secret weapon. Choose your side! Now! And then they made it through the round eight random knowledge minefield with a damn fine score of 13 out of 16. Wow!   That bit of quiz heaven ended our fourth week at Draught House. Since we’re off next week for the Super Bowl, just as we’re getting to
