Tell me your partner's favorite breakfast food, their dream car, and their father's first name and I'll tell you if they're cheating on you.
Resident Egon

Sometimes, I know what to blog about after a quiz and I get right to it. But many times, and many quizzes, I sit staring at a blank document procrastinating this thing cause damned if I know what to write or even how to get started. So….whining about not knowing what to write is a good enough place as any…I hope. It’s not like it takes that much to be creative, just a tiny spark of insanity fueled by mountains of insecurity and anxieties that you pour into the written word or emoted facial expression that is supposed to change or delight the world. Not all of it does, but if you’re lucky you’ll hit a note just right for at least one person and change

Good day, me hearties! I report to you from the distractible Spanish Caribbean, and the deck of the almighty Jackdaw. Many a ship were sank, and many a sailor lost to the briny deep this day. But your captain fared well o’er the course of his day off. So well in fact he almost forgot to report in to you. Hell of a night last night, eh?

The Night When the Bartender Asks Why You Didn't Make More Menopause Jokes About the Obnoxious Drunk Blonde in the Back Who's "Playing"
Resident Egon

First more jarring than the sound of cats fucking, then on to the bartender asking me why I never called you a stupid fucking retarded cunt…because some people just don’t get the joke, and it becomes less and less funny. By that point, you just sit back, and adjust your playlist to subtly troll them with “She Hates Me”, “I’m Mad”, “Fucking Hostile”, and so forth. The perils of running a vocal kind of event, with a raucous style, in a room full of drunken fucktards…     BEST ROUNDS OF THE NIGHT!!!!!! And with an over-excited caterwaul

First an entire bastille day quiz, then tonight a little guillotine action.

So I caught an Electrabuzz about 15m before quiz…you? Yeah it’s kinda tough at the ol’ Harp. We’re just a hair’s breadth out of reach of the nearest pokestop, so it’s all luck of the draw and/or incense. That Electrabuzz tonight….total random.

Quitters, fuck-ups, and a serious hard-lifer…..that’s all it takes to make a Wednesday quiz. Aside from the loudly discussed answers, the loudly discussed wrong answers when they weren’t even listening to the whole question, the stupidest statement I heard all night has to have been “I won’t know I was only born in 1990!” Those dudes are way too old for you to be hanging on the way you were and born in 1990 to not be creepy as fuck.

Y’all demanded to know what Roger was going on about in Round7, well…I have the answer. Presented below for your enjoyment, selected choice quotes from Roger Ebert’s review of “North”.   I have no idea why Rob Reiner, or anyone else, wanted to make this story into a movie, and close examination of the film itself is no help. "North" is one of the most unpleasant, contrived, artificial, cloying experiences I've had at the movies. To call it manipulative would be inaccurate; it has an ambition to manipulate,

A fun game to play on Facebook is to scroll through your past updates and ask yourself: "am I insufferable?"
Resident Egon

In 2 nights across the country, scores of nerds have put together one of the largest QFAC pots we’ve ever mustered. Official venues playing the $5 buy-in version of quiz, and plenty more just like us where we just put out the hat, virtually and physically. In the end, we made nearly a 2% contribution to the total running amount. And that’s not anything to sneer at….$179 on an unplanned hat pass is a good take for any charity event. Especially when the veterans were in earlier selling cookies, and all I’m selling is a swelling personal pride. Anyway, as of last night’s quizzes we’ve raised nearly $10k for Equality Orlando.

Last night, I organized a threesome... there were a couple of no shows, but I still had a good time anyway.
Resident Egon

I’m a huge Aaron Sorkin fan. Have been ever since I discovered who he was the first time I watched ‘A Few Good Men’. I was already a theatre geek, so the words he painted on that screen flowed so wonderfully I just had to know who wrote it, and what else they had written. Since then I’ve made a point to give at least a few episode shot to anything his name appears on. ‘Studio 60’ might have beena bit of a let down, but everything else has been beautiful. 7 years of a fantasy white house and the best senior staff we could hope for in any faory tale that makes people want to serve. And oh how we wish it was like it is in the show…witty, erudite people

Boom! Money shot! Ew!
Resident Egon

I will be clear again as I have tried to be. I don’t necessarily think Rivers Cuomo is a bad songwriter. I just think his namby pamby bubblegum pop crap of late blows when applied to Weezer as a band. They’re making money, and have huge amounts of fans, so my opinionin the end means dick. But they used to be such a good band. Then issues got in their way, a long break, probably some therapy, and finally a re-emergence as…the band that produced ‘Island in the Sun’ and ‘Beverly Hills’. At least the song he wrote for The Monkees new album actually fits the band’s style. Oh well. Next thing you know someone;s going to try and convince me that Blink-182

The internet is full of golden nuggets of weirdness, and in my spare time of media consumption plus severe insomnia, I’ve watched a LOT. Today we’re featuring the further results of something from last night’s quiz, that awful Rebecca Black tune. Cause it was so damn successful that other parents took their kids to this potentially pedophilic producer and had him make another music video to feature his own “talents” as a rapper over an autotuned and poorly written pop crap. I briefly tortured you with the audio for ABCDEFG, but really….it’s all about the video. Just try and comprehend from

Much like I’m sure a handful of others, I was excited to see the countdown clock on the RatM website when it first appeared. Accompanied by older photos of the quartet, with no real significance behind the initial marketing ploy, who knew what was awaiting us? In this highly charged political climate, with so much bile and vitriol being spewed all across the spectrum from protestors, to supporters, to even candidates…god damn but we could use a new album from the combined frustrations of Wilks, Commerford, Morello, & de la Rocha. Sadly, as we found out, and as you found out when you got something in Round 8 wrong, that’s not what we’re getting. Supergroup?

Resident Egon

Top of Form I didn't remember at first. But over time the memories would flow in like waves, leaving the pain and confusion on the shores of my mind. The first memories came when I was very young, perhaps 2 or 3. A beautiful young woman was smiling at me, moving her hands to her eyes and away again. A game we call peek-a-boo. A young man with darker skin than my own was holding my fingers as I struggled to rise on my feet. A girl a few years older than me took my hands and pulled me from my crib and drew on my face with lipstick. Their names and characteristics came to me instantaneously. Mom wasn't worried at first. But as I started to talk more and more about these
