Simply Stellar
The Babe With The Power

I've mentioned before that one of the favorite rounds of quiz is round 7 because it gives everyone a breather between the "wtf just happened??" of round 6 and the final "it'll fuck you up" of round 8. Mainly, I think, it's because it's the usually familiar sounds of tv and movies. This night's was all movies and about half of them I've watched and liked. In particular one of them was "Gravity" starring Sandra Bullock.If you've seen her movies, you know she does comedy and loves slapstick most of all. So "Gravity" was astronomically different and I loved it. I always get in trouble with the ball and chain because, while of course I can suspend my disbelief or otherwise scifi and

The Book Is Always Better
The Babe With The Power

Back in the day when I was growing up, I was an avid reader of books. I inhaled everything and anything in sight. I'm pretty sure I shot right past little kids books because I don't really remember a lot of books that other people my age reminisce about. I do distinctly remember being told repeatedly that I was reading well above my grade level. So, yes, I was a serious bookworm. These days I still read a lot, but I do all of my reading keeping up with current events, in particular the slimey things people in power are up to. A lot less fun than going through 3 or 4 fantasy and scifi paperbacks a week, but a lot more important.But the reading everything-news on the internet is

Erin Go Bragh A Shillelagh At The Top O' The Mornin', Gooooo Irish!
The Babe With The Power

Friday was one of those holidays a lot of people love to use as an excuse to get sloppy drunk and make poor decisions. Speaking of poor behavior, in honor of St. Patrick's day, the Prime Minister of Ireland gifted the President a bowl of shamrocks and, of course, he bungled it into the typical cluster every diplomatic function seems to go these days. Although I guess it's no surprise that he whipped out some semi-wtf "saying" that no one had ever heard about because there A LOT of Americans who have lost their family's culture that much and would whip out something like that, too.So every year I ask myself, really?

Did You Ever Play Tic-tac-toe?
The Babe With The Power

I always like to custom make my bonus prize tokens rather than use the generic cards Quizmasters in other places in Texas use and I like making them with a rotating cast of geeky images to make them interesting and the winners will like. One of them is from classic geeky movie "War Games" with the very fresh-faced Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy. So I was happy to see the name of Thursday night's visual round was named after a quote from that movie. Shall. We. Play. A. Game? Of COURSE I had to say the name THAT way when I gave the answers to the round.And I loved it because in the last year and a bit I've gotten into it because I FINALLY got into gaming. No, not the video kind.

Heroes And Misfits
The Babe With The Power

Monday night's quiz started off a geeky but fairly easy footing that generally got everyone in a good mood. All of the answers included the name of a comic book superhero. Southtown 101 regulars don't get bent out of shape about stuff, so either no one noticed or no one cared that the answers leaned more towards the DC than the Marvel side.Which brings me to that age-old nerd rage: DC or Marvel? Ballnchain QM Shane will expound on why he has always favored Marvel over DC, but I'll tell you the truth that for me I'm agnostic. I watch A LOT of superhero shows. Almost all of them. I watch both Arrow/Flash AND Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D./Agent Carter (R.I.P.)! Here's how I see it. Each

Death Would Totally Lose a Wet T-Shirt Contest
KelpStar

Tonight was a good night! You know it’s gonna be good when you get stopped going in the front door to settle a debate between two bald guys and a long-haired hippie over whether or not girls prefer hair. Given that I didn’t want any of them to hate me, I said that hair was much less important than not being a jackass. At which point they all self-selected right out of the dating pool. Damn. Everyone was suuuuuper excited about Round 3 tonight. Sports and a time-constrained brain dump? Pretty much a recipe for shame. Everyone rallied for Round 4, however, even if I can’t say basic words like Mangalyaan or salmonella. To be fair, I don’t think the salmonella one

Hello world! Chandni reporting here, covering for the talented, intelligent, hilarious Paulina. (Men, take note. These are the quality compliments women really want. And yes, that was a disgustingly generic statement and I only feel half bad for it.)  Quiz tonight was made three times as much fun when I tried to plug in what I thought was a speaker and it turned out to be a DISCO LIGHT WOO! Sadly, it made me feel as if a stroke was slowly headed by way, and I made an executive decision that my health was more important than y'alls happiness. Welcome to America.  We had a super close match tonight, with the victors coming out on top (heh) by ONE LITTLE POINT! And a

Bork! Bork! Bork!
The Babe With The Power

I hope you all enjoyed last night's round of music as sung by Swedish Chef. I love those rounds! It doesn't matter what the songs are, the sound of him singing just makes me laugh. You know, I was half tempted to write this blog in Swedish Chef style, but then I thought no one would understand it. UNTIL I thought, wait, this is the internet! I betcha someone's made a Swedish Chef translator. And sure enough there are a whole bunch. I'll spare you the whole blog being that, but a quick example: I elveys lufe-a it vhee Svedeesh Cheff seengs zee toones!

Beer Me? Whiskey Me!
The Babe With The Power

A funny comment I got about last night's quiz was something like, "OF COURSE I did well on the beer round!" And yeah, of course everyone did! Because you're playing Geeks Who DRINK and I'd be really disappointed if, even an hour into some drinking, you wouldn't know your beers. Now me, the linking it to beer names might've helped, but only in deciding if the answer was right because, while I do like me some beer, it's not usually my first choice of drink.These days something like this would probably get Child Protective Services called on you, but when I was in middle school, my first ever alcoholic drink was served up by my mom. I'm not 100% sure what was her reason because her

An Emotional Blog
The Babe With The Power

When I was a kid my brother and I spent a lot of time at the library because we were crazy bookworms and it was the free way our mom could keep us in books without breaking the bank and burying the house in books. There was open season on magazines too and that we could actually get her to buy. One in particular we always got was MAD Magazine. On the surface it looked cartoon-y and therefore acceptable for us kids, but inside it was full of some really mature satire humor. It really used the imagery of clean-cut Americana and turned it on its MAD jug ear, exposing its fakery and hypocrisy. Thinking about it, I guess it makes sense I read so much of that growing up considering

Making The Vienna Sausage
The Babe With The Power

At first glance, I thought R6 was going to be tough, but it turned out to be not that bad. Excuse me, a whole round about a nineteenth century Austrian classical music composer? Pffft! But then I looked over the questions and thought there was enough in there that you'd all not have problems with it and you all didn't disappoint. There was definitely something about Austria around that time that was churning out the classical music that stuck around. I was poking through Spotify for some music to play and was once again reminded of my love for classical music.I don't listen to it at all on a regular basis which is why I need to get reminded of it whenever I randomly end up at it

Ducks And Sponges
The Babe With The Power

When Howard the Duck came out I was just about the age I think it was pointed at. I think. I'm not sure because it's one of those movies that completely passed me by. I'm looking at the description and on the surface you would think it would be up my alley as some sort of sci-fi movie. On the other, I was completely influenced in my love of sci-fi by my older brother and perhaps wisdom blocked me from watching it. There's a reason it sucked so bad that George Lucas had to sell off the studio. The good news is we got Pixar like a beautiful phoenix out of that stench, so yay us!And then there's Spongebob Squarepants. I was completely NOT the target audience, but the first time I

Deep Thoughts... By Winnie The Pooh
The Babe With The Power

If you were read a list of quotes and had to decide if it was a quote from a Winnie the Pooh book or from the Dalai Lama, how would you do?  Thursday's quizzers were put to the test and they all did pretty well. I can't say I ever read the books and I didn't watch a lot of Winnie the Pooh as a little kid. But whenever I see Pooh or hear of him, I always think of my older brother. He grew up on Winnie the Pooh way more than I did and I always remember one thing I "inherited" from him was one of those Read-And-Play record books "Winnie the Pooh And Tigger Too" which to this day I have. Heck, last June Geeks Who Drink had a Disney theme quiz and I dressed up in an Eeyore onesie to QM Shane's

Yes, I Do Want A Scrub
The Babe With The Power

About the same time as it was in its last season or right after, I decided I really wanted to watch "Scrubs" end to end. Like I've mentioned before, I can't binge watch like a lot of people these days do. More than 3 episodes at a time of one show and I forget what happened because my attention goes away. This show went 9 seasons. I mean, you could say it really only went, like, at most 7 seasons, but that's only because those last couple of seasons were to pull blood from a stone. It took a while to get through it.I really liked the characters, though!

This Ain't Your Mama's Rabbit Ears
The Babe With The Power

I admit it, I'm a cheapskate. Or rather, other people would call me a cheapskate, I call myself frugal. I could give you a long list of things I don't spend money on, but why bore you to tears? A big one, though, is not spending money on cable. About a decade ago a co-worker from another country was aghast at the cost of cable and that there wasn't a la carte channel service. I totally agreed.If there's one thing I really dislike is buying something which I'll never use and paying for even the low-tier cable really used to piss me off. I really hated propping up 5 zillion sports channels, 12 zillion religious channels, and 20 kabillion reality-show channels. So when I bought my
