What's the German word for "I'm exhausted by my fascist dictator's white supremacist propaganda"
Resident Egon

I’m sorry…enemies of democracy? What the actual fuck, Rohrabacher? I’ve never wished more to be living in Orange County, and not just working down there weekly with y’all at The Harp. I want to live in Dana ‘Douche Canoe’ Rohrabacher’s district just so I can vote for his opponent next time. For those who haven’t read the news, or anyone not in CA who might be looking at this blog(really?) that fucktard called the people who’ve formally requested he hold town hall meetings “enemies of democracy”. Kind of makes your blood boil, don’t it? Your anger is a gift. That utter twat has been in power since I first started

And so you… Took the day off, fell asleep on the couch, just woke up… Uh-huh… Yeah….anyway…BLOG! Then I gotta get onto doing more wedding and Valentine’s Day shit. BEST ROUNDS OF THE NIGHT!!!!!! I took a class from David Mamet once. Those plots from Round 3 are NOT the weirdest of his repertoire. ♫ You got your Round 5. It’s titled flippy floppys. ♫ So…who still wishes I had read the half-answers in Round 6? Y’all done made the call on question 1. Nice try, sparky.   And speaking of Round 6 in a tangential

I need to make a trophy. Tom used to have a trophy. I totally need to make one to give on special nights. Anyway…QUIZ RECAP! BEST ROUNDS OF THE NIGHT!!!!!! Something so continental about Round 3. But not quite provincial….16.8m… Get a bad score on Round 5? What a world…. Who needs a joke for Round 6? It was golden enough for the majority of you on its own.   And speaking of Round 6 in a tangential and non-sequiter manner, did you sign up with me at the quiz for our new Bonus Email Prize Box thing? No? Seriously why the fuck not? Used to be you could have

Resident Egon

Can you believe we’re already an entire month into 2017? Panic time for me as my wedding is in a scant 3 weeks, but for you it just seems the time is flying like it always does. Life is weird that way…it never stops. It cares so little for your bullshit that it will steamroll the fuck over you without looking back and you have to pray you can catch up again or else find yourself in the dregs for all time until the langoliers come along to clean up things cause no one likes junk lying around; especially time junk of stuff that simply shouldn’t exist anymore. Maybe nothing exists anymore. Maybe I don’t need to worry about the wedding coming off right. Maybe I’m

Resident Egon

Did you ever have one of those moments when it washes over you, “holy crap…I have a month left to plan this shit out!” Yeah that’s me about now, with the wedding coming up real soon. Should be a grand tiny affair in our own back yard, if I can just get the final pieces in place. I think last time I largely focused on telling you the abridged story of our first date, while this time…I’ve been looking over at my lanterns and remembering what started this weird wonderful day we’re planning. Sometime last year, Beach-Ball comics went out of business, and on their way out, they had a 50% off EVERYTHING sale. While we’re poking about, I spy

Resident Egon

Hey don’t get all pissy with me if urine trouble just because you came up with a piss-poor pun that was too smart to be a joke as your team name. You thought your name was number 1, but it turned out to just be a trickle of giggles. Like an old man peeing in morse code… Look I’ll just let Mark Hamill say it for me: https://youtu.be/3ddp1pf_MB8   BEST ROUNDS OF THE NIGHT!!!!!! I’ve got an itch for audio rounds that even last night’s Round 2 can’t sate. Feel a little burned by Round 3 last night? And quiz, now turn to the Round, and quiz, now turn to the 6. Sashay, chantay.

Brightest Day #2 - OR - How I Learned to Stop Worrying And Love The Calm
Resident Egon

And so it begins. 35 more chances to fuck everything up again. So let’s hope none of us do that too much. I know for me it’s starting out interestingly. We bought an electric car, & gave my old matrix to my son. I’m working to put together what I need for my wedding in February, and out of the blue right before quiz last night I get a call to go interview for a job at a local restaurant that has Lobster Poutine on the menu. This is turning out so far, in only 4 days and an insomniac’s 4am wakeup to be a more positive year than much of the anxiety-ridden filth of the last. And yes…I did say wedding. It wasn’t a prank for those who’re FB

Some Pig
Resident Egon

This has been one hell of a ride, hasn’t it? For 362 consecutive days we’ve sat with baited breath over and over and over again as we watch the world and our idols fall one by one en masse. Sadly, for the famous folks who shaped our childhood, it’s still only just beginning. But especially after the timing-related shock of last night, I think it all comes down to Debbie Reynolds’ last words to a little pig, as an old favorite spider of ALL of ours:   It’s a beautiful meadow, quizzers, and you deserve it. I’m a little tired perhaps, but I feel…peaceful. Your success these

Happy Solstice, ya filthy animals!
Resident Egon

As I walked in last night and began loading all those bags to the stage, in comes Paul from the parking lot and gives one of his trademarked incredulous looks wondering what the fuck I’m doing to him tonight. Yet even I knew much like the old George Carlin bit, this white elephant prize idea might be meat, might be cake. I hope you all thought it was cake, and not death. But then y'all started wandering in, and the spirit grew bit by bit. What else do you call showing up with handmade scarves for me & my fiancee in our wedding colors, a bottle of aged scotch, and a goddamn Quizmaster Bojack. The only thing is since you went and put a custom picture into the backdrop for how

It really pays to gamble your joker on the right round. Seriously….super cereal, you guys!   BEST ROUNDS OF THE NIGHT!!!!!! In the Round 1 words of Barenaked ladies, we wouldn’t have to eat Kraft Dinner, but we would. We’d eat more, with lots of fancy ketchups. So….Round 2…..naming things not that hard after all, innit?

When you read this, take a deep breath, improve your posture, and visualize riding a dragon with me.
Resident Egon

There are those who say we play too rough and vulgar at The Harp Inn. But when multiple quizzers greet you with a hug saying how much they missed quizzing with you over the holiday week, it makes me want to tell those people to go fuck themselves with a rusty pole or a splintery post. Either will do. Sure we play rough, but it all comes with love. The hate is just a side dish, like the creamed broccoli casserole that your Aunt Ronnie brings for some stupid reason even though Grandma cleans out a full baking dish of that awful swill before handing her daughter-in-law back a sparkling Corningware Pyrex piece of work. Hopefully your holiday went well. If your scores are any indication

And so we come to the near close of another year with the holidays fast approaching us. IO mean seriously fast. We’re not quizzing next week due to Thanksgiving, so like….so fucking fast you guys. And after that shit with Christmas, I gotta start seriously setting myself up for my wedding. Shit I should go make some phone calls today on that. Sometimes, functional anxiety should be able to work FOR you, not always against you amirite? See y’all in 2 weeks!   BEST ROUNDS OF THE NIGHT!!!!!! Birthdays everywhere this month.

The outlook wasn’t brilliant for The Harp Inn six that day: Scored 74-62, with but one round more to play, And when Kyle quickly died at first, and Ginger did the same, A pall-like silence fell upon the patrons of the game.   A straggling few got up to go in deep despair.

Oh I love my Halloween. All month long from the decorating, to the haunted houses, to the horror movies suddenly becoming the bandwagon entertainment, to all the costumes you have the opportunity to wear. I’d been upping my quiz ante each week this year leading up to tonight, our last quiz in October. I’m glad that even nearly a week before Halloween, a good few of you were ready to try out your costumes. Spirit-wise, I certainly loved the Rowdy Roddy Piper, now PUT ON THE GLASSES, KYLE! Design-wise it has to go to our man who made his own dagger though. Through showing off his work, he’s even advised me on how to finally get the impossible piece for my Starman cosplay.
