And I Always Thought Second Place Was First Loser
JenKiper

Have you ever had that moment that turned your entire paradigm upside down? It can be a little unsettling, but it also opens up a whole new bevy of opportunities and options. Sometimes this happens at quiz, not always, but occasionally all the forces come into line and BOOM! We all walk away with a new way of looking at quiz and life…but enough philosophizing and on to the quiz!   Tonight our quizzers faced a new challenge and a new sixteen point round. Usually, there’s only one right answer to the questions at quiz by design. But tonight, we turned that shit over and kicked it around a a bit. Teams had two options when answering questions. They could earn

Quiz is the Monday Antidote
JenKiper

Mondays can be a challenge to everyone, even if yours doesn’t happen to fall on a Monday. What I mean is, that first day that you go back to work after some time off is always a rough one. I’m fortunate that mine falls on quiz day and I get to see a bunch of enthusiastic faces ready for the challenge that is GWD quiz. On to the quiz!   Cover songs are always a gamble for an artist. Do you do it as a tribute to the original artist or put your own artistic stamp on a song that most people know and love? There’s one musician who definitely puts a personal stamp all over songs you thought you knew and that is Marilyn Manson. Most people are familiar with

May the Force of Quiz Be With Us Everyday
JenKiper

Hosting quiz on a holiday is always great, but on a true nerd holiday it is fantastic! Star Wars Day always brings out the geeks to show off their love of Rebels and the Empire. We even had an improvised Emperor Palpatine costume on the winning team. Teams were serenaded by one of my childhood favorites Star Wars Funk by Meco. Take a listen here while you remember all the fun we had at quiz.   Our music round featured some negative vibes with lots of songs about never doing this or never doing that. Despite all those nevers, it was an upbeat bunch of songs with a few stumpers that proved to be challenging.

Solid Gold Quizzing
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Returning to the Green Room is always a bright spot. Both staff and quizzers welcome me back to quiz with open arms and tasty beverages. With spring upon us, everyone was in a great mood and ready to kick some quiz ass. Regular quizzers welcomed the newbies into the quiz fold and we all had a great time and learned some new stuff along the way. Tonight's music round went all meta on us featuring songs about singing songs. As the round went on, we all struggled with not singing the next line in the clips which, in many cases, also happened to be the song title. Don't Worry, Be Happy appeared and most everybody joined in to sing along. Everybody sadly sang along with Chris Martin's

show a little respect, damnit!
Alley Cat

Alley here, subbing in for Jen again! I love coming to the Green Room. Always a solid showing with folks who are incredibly engaged and excited to be there, even with their beloved Royals playing on the various televisions scattered around the bar. Of course we saw the regulars (even regular to me who only swings by every now and again), Animatronic Grandma, who added a familiar face from the bar to their normal line up. And a team that readily pointed out which one was not like the other, 5 Homos and a Straight Shooter. Not that I care,

I prefer chai tea to coffee, love the Golden Girls, am obsessed with KU basketball, and always put the toilet paper roll on backwards. 


Sometimes I have to sound out "wed-nes-day".

Literary Devices and Letting It Be
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

It’s always fun coming back to quiz after missing a week. I enjoy seeing some familiar faces and meeting some new ones. The great folks at the Green Room always greets you with something tasty to eat and drink. It’s always a pleasure to return to such a fun bunch of folks, but on to the quiz! We opened with an alliterative round which allowed us to discuss our favorite literary devices. All of the teams did a great job coming up with two word alliterative phrases about a variety of things. Some expressed their love of alliteration, while others professed a love of onomatopoeia, satire, and allegory. My personal favorite is assonance because, well, it sounds like swearing,

as it turns out, she isn't pretty under the fat
Alley Cat

Twas a small, but mighty crowd that showed up at the Green Room. Subbing always brings a lot of unknown variables, and tonight was not exception. Tonight brought Opening day for the Royals and the NCAA championship game which definitely took a toll, but we prefer an intimate crowd anyway. While Jen was away, we all played and I tried to read. In fact, I read a little too much. But we bounced back from my apparent inability to discern questions from answers and carried on like nothing happened. Highlights include: a napking proclaiming Jesus as a savior, messiah and bonus question answer, including that the napkin was unused (much appreciated); not

Indiana Really Doesn't Want Me...And I'm Cool with That
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

I've never really been a fan of Indiana and several of our teams this week voiced some strong opinions on their recent legislation. What in the hell is a Hoosier? Why can no one in that state drive worth a damn? I do, however, hold several fantastic people from Indiana close to my heart. I dated a really sweet and sexy Jewish girl from Bloomington for about a year and B-town is fantastic. Through her I met several more folks who are just as hands down fantastic. I've even got a few quizzers who hail from Indiana. Hey, I grew up in Arkansas so I get the whole wacky religious bigotry thing that's going on there now. All that craziness can't stop a great quiz though so let's see what happened
