Storms A'Comin
John M

Sometimes things happen in movies that just wash over you and are just accepted without thinking about it. It could be a sound effect, a cliché, or a type of shot (such as the Michael Bay hero angle). You go through life blissfully unaware, and then some helpful curmudgeon/obsessive points it out in a supercut and then you notice it every time. This is the case with Round 7 which featured 8 different movie where characters proclaim "A storm is coming" and only about a third of those actually were talking about storms. Now that line of dialogue will forever stick out in my brain as I am sure I will hear it again and again as we enter the summer movie season. It was also

What do YOU love most about Pitbull?
The Honorable Judge Amy

Holy hell it was fun to hang out with y’all for a night! Thank you for allowing me to crash your lives for a night of quiz-related shenanigans. I feel like there was a lot of love in the room. And a lot of learning!   I learned how to dramatically hold a broken microphone chord.   You learned that I can go from really sweet to really mean in .03 seconds (it’s not you, it’s me).    I learned that if I say “we’re all just people, doing our best” on a microphone, the rest of the room will applaud for the sake of humanity.   You

See what the critics have to say about Amy:

"Wait a minute. Wait a minute, believe me. That's a tough quizmaster. She was born in a pool of gasoline on a piece of rusty scrap metal. I've seen that quizmaster jump through barbed wire into a vat of hot tar. That quizmaster? Is indestructible."- Special Agent Jack Bauer

"Polite as fuck" - Homeless stranger

See what Amy has to say about Amy:

I am a native Portlander. I am pro sandwich, whisky, beer, dogs, Oregon, and dancing all the time. I am anti mayonaise. When at a loss for what to say I spout out random facts. I have seen the two most famous wizards of our time (Harry Potter and Gandalf) naked, on separate occasions. I have just met you, and I love you.

Meats and Seas
John M

The Prosciuitto and Cheese plate at Bottles is listed under the “Small Shares” section of their menu and the amount of delicious meat and cheese it provides is clearly not meant to eaten by one man. But I am not just one man, I am THE QUIZMASTER. So being as full of cheese as person can be and be medically considered “alive,” I was ready to quiz Three returning teams joined us: Dork Out With Your Pork Out, Sagiquarius and Only My Couch Pulls Out resulting in something of a Tournament of Champions. The teams were locked in a battle of wits with their only weapons were knowledge of NBA Jam

Spraaaang
John M

Spring in Portland used to happen in waves. You get a little taste, then they take it away again and replace it with the grey drizzle. This happens several times until eventually summer begins. Now instead of intermittent nice weather, we get intermittent blasts of heat. Today was already over 80 and it’s only dang ol’ May! But this niceness meant that Bottles Patio was in use and quizzers made the most of it. Only My Couch Pulls Out and Urethra Franklin decided to play the quiz outside while Dork Out With Your Pork Out decided to avoid all that overrated Vitamin D and stay inside. Together we ventured

(sung like Jukebox Hero): PULLED PORK NA-CHOS
John M

I cannot sing enough praises about the pulled pork nachos at Bottles. They’re crazy good, and I demand you eat them on your next visit. Some teams ordered the dish at quiz last night and those teams did pretty well. I’m not saying nachos = victory, but i’m NOT not saying it either.   Among the teams last night were I Kiss My Mom With This Mouth, Beauties & The Beasts, Dork Out With Your Pork Out, Fuchetts and Fizz Nachos. Also in attendance was Center for Sour Cream which is such an low-key upsetting name. I love

HeyyyeyyyeEYEYyyyEYYYY...War and Peace Ev'ry Day
John M

Before quiz started I noticed one of the TVs at Bottles was playing Full Metal Jacket. I have seen that movie countless times but I’ve never seen it all. I always just watch through the Private Pyle stuff and then kinda lose interest. I’m sure it’s great and I should just go ahead and watch it all, but tonight was not the night for that. I had a quiz to host.   We had returning team Rejects with us again, quizzing against regulars Fassbender’s Dick and new team Not Amused. Fassbender took an early lead by using their joker in Round 2 and actually knowing some of

The White Castle Crave Death
John M

Maybe it’s just me having binge-watched all the Fast & Furious movies, but folks, family is important.   It’s always nice at a venue to get a good quiz fam of regular teams, and if last night was any indication, we’re well on our way! Returning teams Dork Out With Your Pork Out, Sagiquarius, and Bob joined us again. All smart and funny teams, but Sagiquarius has a special place in my heart. A couple times during the quiz, when I asked for repeats after a round a member of the team would shout “nope, you’re doing great.” Being a participation-trophy winning special

Easter Truthers
John M

I have said time and time again that the mid 90s to the early 00s produced some of the WORST music in recorded history. This was proved correct yet again in last night’s Round 2, where quizzers had to guess what popular songs were covered by a fake Eddie Vedder. This impersonation was not so much Vedder as it was more just the impression of a spirit of an age, an age where all these awful bands (Staind, Hootie, Creed, etc) raised on his warbling, attempted to close their throats and ape his style.   Looking around during this round, one could see the confused looks on young faces as they tried to figure out why anyone would listen

Only Shooting Staaaars...
John M

It’s not often I can respond to the question “how was your night” with “full of Smash Mouth, typewriters and vaginas” and have it actually be true. Last night was one of those rare occasions.   Joining me in the festivities were Sagiquarius, Sherpas, US, Team of 1 and Dork Out With Your Pork Out (which I’m assuming is an act that involves arguing Star Wars canon with a ham hock). We laughed, we forgot about The Great Mouse Detective, we were told the world was gonna roll us…it was a full night.

McRib For Everyone's Pleasure
John M

I was back in the saddle again after a week’s vacation down Mexico way (when you live in Portland long enough, you kinda forget the sometimes the sun is good and necessary) and what a night to be back. We were graced with new teams I Promise We’re Trying, Pinky & The Brain, and Urethra Franklin and joined by returning teams Fassbender’s Dick and those hecklers in How About That.   Promise We’re Trying provided one of my favorite moments of the quiz in Round 4. There was a question about what word is used to describe a savings

I Wish All Venues Had Tiny Living Rooms!
Lisa Pizza

Y'all, this was my first time at Bottles and it was magical! I really should have brought home some of that Hi-Wheel...any of that Hi-Wheel actually.  Bottles broke my heart and mended it all at once.You see, I was told that they had my favorite pinball table. World Cup '94. Unfortunately, they took it off the floor (and that was literally the only bad thing about my whole visit). BUT, they have WHIRLWIND! And when I played it, I did...not terrible! It was the most fun, actually. Did you know that the Whirlwind table has a tiny fan on it??? It's so...cool. AND in addition to the sweet pinball

All Mashed Up, Don't Know What To Do
John M

Recently there’s been a bit of a hub-bub in some of the dumber corners of the internet because someone posted a picture of a pizza topped with mayo and peas. Also they claimed that was good. This abomination might be the worst thing to happen to pizza since some deranged, soulless freak decided to put pineapple on a slice. Putting mayo on a pizza is already just a foul notion, but the very idea that the pizza could be salvaged, let alone bolstered by the addition of peas is utter nonsense.   I bring this up because the notion that just because the notion that two things can go together, it doesn’t mean they should plagued our

Iron Giant Always Gets Me
John M

We may all come from different backgrounds and places, but we can all agree on what makes a perfect night out: good friends, good food and drinks, and listening to the death rattles of beloved cartoon characters. Nothing brightens up a bar full of friends like hearing Optimus Prime’s final words and just picturing his eyes going dark as you recall the exact moment in your childhood where you first understood the inevitability of death and everyone you love and care about will either die or watch you die.   It wasn’t all fun and games last night though, as we were all forced to listen to Chris Martin perform some of the worst

Poppin' Bottles
John M

Last night I had something of an epiphany, or what Jules Winnfield once called “a moment of clarity”: I absolutely need to go to Bottles more. Relaxed atmosphere, great beer selection and good food, it’s a damn shame i’ve lived in this area for 5+ years now and am not there more often.   Fortunately for me, I do get to go more often now that quiz has kicked off there and if last night was any indication, I get to have great crowds to boot! Manbearbigs, Rakes and Hoes, 50, and Let’s Get Quizzical were teams that were either new to Geeks Who
