Tom: I have a brewery! // Ryan: I have sausages! // Me: We have a Paul.

Never in my life did I expect o go to bed in the middle of a high speed car chase, only to wake up and find Chris Cornell dead. I mean damn…I saw that fucker peel paint off the ceiling with his voice in 1991 at WOW Hall in Eugene, OR. Pearl Jam opened, they were the middle act, with Primus headlining. I had never heard of Soundgarden before, and once he pulled out ‘Jesus Christ Pose’ I was hooked from then on. When he went solo in ’98, ‘Euphoria Morning’ was then and still sits as some of the best lyrical content I’ve ever listened to or read. It hurt last decade when we lost Layne Stayley, I’m absolutely a child of the grunge movement. This

White House hires a psychic who can summon dead tyrants and strong men. Trump says it would be an honor to meet the ghost of Pol Pot.

Never once in my life did I imagine I’d start a sing-a-long for a rugby team by playing a mashup between Snoop Dogg & Grease. And yet, apparently all those drunken dudes needed was a little Olivia Newton John in their lives. Well if we’re gonna get overwhelmed by a loud group of drunken sportos at least we can be pleased by the mildly respectfyl way in which they proceeded to drown much of me out. At least here was not a single shouted answer. Unlike so so so many bars when the local sports guys come in, they shouted nothing at us or about us. Now admittedly it’s usually the sports FANS who are the dickless wonders shouting NERD or LOSERS to assuage their superiority

Resident Egon

Trying ot get a blog started while your head is cloudy from cold m3ds is an interesting attempt at communicating with you guys. To be honest, I’m not really looking at the screen right now, just the keys while I type so for all I know…typo after typo after typo. But that’s not what’s important. What IS, is the fact that we had as always an amazing time last night on a relatively punchy quiz. And now I sit in in antici[ation of tonight’s Star Wars quiz. Are you registered? Are you studied up? Are you aware I’m bringing home-baked cookies to promote my startup business? Yeah you’ve had my experiemtn leftovers before, and there will probably be other

Bryan in Hawaii? Why not call him between rounds?
Tom Servo!

Yep, Hawaii. Also, YEP we definetly called him between round, had him on speaker phone and gave him a very hearty FUCK YOU, and congrats on the nuptuials. Sorry for the joke about have a possible bride. Its said with love and you both deserve the best. Cheers Mate! Who am I? As much as you would like it, Kevin Smith was not hosting Quiz, nor was Bryans Funnier, More handsome, less Jewy brother.  I mean I am A Mensch, but I love they guy, and I Love The Harp. So here I am...err...was. So for those of you who are new to me I will give a lil back story. Geeks Who Drink has been in California for 6 years and....23

Huh? My story? Okay. It was never easy for me. I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi...

Gawd I love that movie.

I been Quizmaster since December of 2010ish and its only getting better, so when IM not scouring the toy shops or quizzing, or working for the Man.

As far as my softer side, I do enjoy live theatre and try to perform as much as possible myself, whether it be in a musical or stage play, but I also try to do Improv.

Yes just like "Whose Line".

 

So let me sign off by saying this,

 I don't need any of this. I don't need this stuff, and I don't need *you*. I don't need anything. Except this. 

And that's the only thing I need is *this*. I don't need this or this. Just this ashtray... And this paddle game. - The ashtray and the paddle game and that's all I need...

And this remote control. - The ashtray, the paddle game, and the remote control, and that's all I need...

And these matches. - The ashtray, and these matches, and the remote control, and the paddle ball... And this lamp. - The ashtray, this paddle game, and the remote control, and the lamp, and that's all *I* need. And that's *all* I need too.

I don't need one other thing, not one... I need this. - The paddle game and the chair, and the remote control, and the matches for sure. Well what are you looking at? What do you think I'm some kind of a jerk or something! - And this. That's all I need.
 The ashtray, the remote control, the paddle game, and this magazine, and the chair.

 And I don't need one other thing, except my dog.

I don't need my dog.

Old faces, new faces, and someone was even shocked when I said I’d call Jesus a Dick for 2 hours. There’s never or rarely anything if ever like a night at The Harp. Spring Break flies by, summer slowly closing in on us, and me heading on my honeymoon next week. But fret not, no interruptions at our favorite dingy pub…I’m sending in the OG, Tom Servo, Tommy the Irish Bastard, or perhaps most lately GhostBustin’ Tom. Who’ll show up?

Like tonight’s quiz. BEST ROUNDS OF THE NIGHT!!!!!! See? Naming was a little harder than you thought. Especially for the team that hedged their bets for all 8 answers and got zero points for Round 2. Gulag is right if you count the zoo scene from Happy Feet. Fucked up movie.

Did you know it was a year ago today? Totally! I know…how times flies. And not only that, but a year ago this very quiz was dead as a doornail with Spring Break getting into its swing. So…for my own part it was great to see another night of a nearly full bar at The Harp. Newbies abound, let’s recap your night: BEST ROUNDS OF THE NIGHT!!!!!! Look it’s not just Round 1, it’s not just the fact that they named their team the Golden Knights, I fucking HATE Vegas so hard..fire, fi-fi-fi…flames…flames..from the side of my face!

Holy hell is it seriously March already? And yet at the same time, doesn’t it feel like that Near-Sienna Toned Fuckwit has been abusing the hell out of us for a full term already? I just feel exhausted all the time, and disgusted by what he’s brought out in people even more than all of the time. Yes MORE than all of the time. Time’s a funny thing, ain’t it? Perception rules above all, and yet it will march on inexorably from one conclusion to the next whether we interfere or not.
