Say what you want about the odd phrasing, but Donald Trump calls for nationwide 'stop and frisk' in pitch for black voters is a pretty solid Onion headline
Resident Egon

What do you mean that's the New York Times? Ah crap...   Ever have one of those “oh god…this is happening” moments? Yeah me too….tonight. Actually I kinda had that kind of a day, but if we start that road it becomes a diary entry instead of quiz blog and one of those is for posting, the other for deleting. Another year down, one more step closer to the inevitable black void that swallows us all into nothingness. Am I feeling old? Downtrodden? Like I should crawl directly into the grave? The amount of blood I lost at work the other morning would say maybe so. Or do you just look forward to each consecutive grey hair adding another layer of grumbly

Must've been surreal for Donald Drumpf to have a conversation with a Mexican about something other than flat or sparkling water
Resident Egon

And just like that, August comes to a close. In some ways I can hardly believe where the time has gone this year…already September. On another note, with all the damn celebrity deaths of major importance this year, it can end as soon as possible. In fact we can totally skip right over this month. I don’t need September right now, cause I don’t feel like having another birthday.   Oh well, the inevitability will reign supreme, and we’ll have quiz the night before my actual birthday at The Harp as I celebrate my 2nd 42nd birthday.   BEST ROUNDS OF THE NIGHT!!!!!!

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.

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.

Resident Egon

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
