Mr. Sandman
Hopeless Semantic

 Oh boy am I tired from partying so hard at tonight's quiz. The Sandman is going to take me away any moment now. I guess I better read Neil Gaiman's "Sandman" to see what to expect and also to stop pretending I've read it. Man, I am just shutting eyelids left and right (my left and right eyelid.) I'm falling to beddy bye land any moment now.     I'm on the verge of Rip Van Winkleing it. That's when you fall asleep for 100 years and when you wake up, nothing has changed technologically but you got a big beard. And you don't even care all your friends died because you got this great beard. Okay, goodnight guys. ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

He-Man Always Knows Just What to Say
Max Power

It was great being back at Battery Park last night, and seeing a whole bunch of familiar faces. The quiz has been running for over three years now! That’s totally nuts.   We kicked things off with a round that purported to correct T.S. Eliot about which month is cruelest. I’m tempted to side with him, but then again, he is indirectly responsible for the existence of the musical CATS, so maybe it’s a wash. In any event, it was neck and neck right off the bat, with Brick Down! and Vinny and the Squirts tied for first place. They remained tied for the rest of the quiz, right up until round 8, when the Bricks pulled out 8

Kevin lives in Somerville and spends his time doing lots of math so that robots can more easily take over the world. When not doing that, he's devoting his time to brewing beer, and listening to Bowie. He's also an ordained minister (it's amazing what you can do for free on the interwebs). And yes, that's Kevin chilling with Tommy Wiseau, director of the wonderful film The Room (nbd).

Speaking In Tongues
Hopeless Semantic

 Speaking of speaking in tongues, have you guys heard the good news of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints? I'm not a Mormon, I just love those Latter Days. Especially Friday and Saturday. I just like to chillax with a Bud Lite Lime and drink it. And drink another one until I'm white me drunk. That's where a person who is me, who is white, is drunk. Some people say Sunday is the first day. Those people are Seventh Day Adventists and can go to hell. Everybody knows Monday is the first day and Sunday isn't even a real day. I go into a cryogenic chamber every Sunday and thaw out Monday. It's very expensive but worth it. If it's good enough for a forged Ted Williams napkin, it's good enough

Who Has Two Thumbs And Wrote The Thumb Round
Hopeless Semantic

   The world may never know. We had a pretty packed quiz. It was good to see like all the regulars being regulars and show up. We had the Bricks. The Mondays. The Irregulars. The team that shows up and changes their name every time.  And special guests. It was cool. I love when GWD comes up with stuff that's unexpected and the r3 and r6 delivered the hardest. Who would show up to a pub quiz and be quizzed on places you are or aren't allowed into? Or biker gangs? Or maybe thumbs (this guy!)  It was also a heated battle for 1st

More Exile!
Hopeless Semantic

   Exiling people is awesome. Back in the day, they used to just exile people all the time for every good reason. They were criminals, they had diseases, they didn't like them. There is like no good reason not to exile someone. It's time to bring it back. Sending people to an island is the best thing. It's perfect for me because I'm anti-death penalty. Not because I don't think the state shouldn't kill people (it should,) I'm just always pro exile. If I was the foreman in a jury and I was about to pass the note to sentence someone to die, and then a dude ran into the courtroom and said "exile dude," I'd rip that shit up and rip off my blazer to reveal a Led Zeppelin shirt.

No
Hopeless Semantic

No, Harper Lee wasn't also known as Mrs. Capote. Nice try two teams. I'm pretty sure Truman Capote was openly or not, gay. And they were just friends. And they went to go interview people for that "In Cold Blood" book. And then he wrote To Kill A Mockingbird and she said that she wrote it. True story. Did you know Truman Capote was in a movie? I'm gonna watch it again soon. It's called "Murder By Death." And there is some cold blooded murders. Speaking of cold blood, they found a warm blooded fish. I'm not sure what that means but I guess it's interesting. I'm Dee Captain Now had a lead the whole time but lost at the buzzer to now-threepeaters Any Given

What Date Is It?
Hopeless Semantic

                   I was messing up dates bad today, bro. Apparently I can’t tell the difference between 1796 and 1996, but can you blame me? I remember 96’ well. I was wearing a powdered wig and celebrating 20 years of American Independence. FUCK. Well what happened in 76’?  They had a pretty good Lollapalooza. FUCK. Get it? I’m messing up the differences between  a colonial time like a long time ago and a modern age I lived in. Do you get the joke? Acknowledge the joke.  Why do

What Happened Man?
Hopeless Semantic

  Last Monday at quiz I drank a beer and ate some peyote, I think it was the beer. I started drifting off into a very strange zone. And it was twilight out. It was kind of like the Twilight Zone....but with shittier writing. So it was kind of like Twilight. Minutes turned into hours. Hours turned into days. Days turned into weeks. Weeks turned into fortnights. Fortnights turned into fortdays. I started spinning endlessly on one of those optical illusions that hypnotists use to hypnotize people. What are those called, anyways? But anyways, on Sunday I came to and am now posting this blog. I also came three, up top guys!

Accidental Blog
Hopeless Semantic

 This blog is going to be more of an accident than I was when my parents didn't want to have me.  I'm writing this on accident. I'm asleep right now and rolling back and forth over the keys and they all happen to coincide with sentences and thoughts without any typoesss. I'm dreaming about a good blog that you want to read. But this is what you get. Sleep blogs. Maybe tomorrow I'll slip on a banana peel and accidently fall on my keyborad and type this part. And then maybe I'll get in a car wreck and my laptop will fly through the windshield and shards of broken glass will hit the keys and type this. YOU NEVER KNOW. OR DO YOU KNOW? DO

Wax Museum Prank
Hopeless Semantic

Would this work? I think people can tell if it's a wax guy or not right? From a picture at least. When a dude gets his picture next to wax Tom Cruise, people are like "Hey, that's Tom...no just a wax man." So here's my proposal. Wax museums should have two Tom Cruises made of wax next to each other. That way it will look like plain clothes TC is visiting wax TC and you are in the middle. This is a good idea. Then people will think you totally met Tom C. Because why would someone build two Tommy Cs? And he looks fake enough to pass as a wax man.    Thomas Cruise.    Happy marathon Monday everyone!

And That's Where I Get Off
Hopeless Semantic

I used to pride myself on something very specfic. My ability to not constantly say phrases that could be double entendres or easily turned into puns/that's what she saids. Well today I dropped the mother of all bad ones. The question was on the ranks of Girl Scouts and I went off on one of my famous rants that nobody ever gets past the second stage right? And as I was reading out the answers, "Daisey, Brownie....and that's where I get off." I meant that's where I would lose my knowledge of the other ranks but yeah, short blog but I believe in the George Costanza rule of leaving on a high note.  I'm buying three boxes

Baseball Teams
Hopeless Semantic

Did you know there are men who play baseball? They are called baseball men. Baseball men play on teams called baseball men teams. It's important to get the nomenclature right or you lose points at baseball matches.  So at these matches the baseball men teams like up and take turns swining baseball team man bats. They hit the balls and then they make lots of money. Do you understand the rules of baseball men matches? Now you are ready for a little field practice, eh? Did you know if you get peanuts and cracker jacks during the game it counts as a baseball men run score? And if the vendor throws you the peanuts and you hit it with your baseball men

It's Not A GWD Quiz With Any Less Than Three Princess Bride Questions

 Princess Bride has always been my favorite movie of all time. I know, I know, I know. I know how much I’m right and how great it is, but setting that aside, this quiz had all the other greatest stuff. A titles only audio round? A puzzle visual round? A before and after round six? I wish my ghost floated out of my body and into a chair so I could have played this bitch, b. Out of body quizzes? Somebody has a new business model.

Hopeless Semantic

Like too much. Slow your roll. VI is like on the list with Mitt Romney and Tim Tebow. No need to say his name again. He's like Candyman or Beetlejuice.

And you don't want that to happen. I was surprised how many of you thought he owns a ranch. I bet he barely owns a studio apartment. Didn't he work at Staples or something? Now I'M the guy who knows too much about the Ice. He sucks. That's my Hail Mary because I don't go to church anymore....because it sucks. And also I looked
