Kidz Bop: The Tour
Jacy

I'm glad that I've built in spots in the quiz that I can rant about random things occurring in my life, I mean I'm sure no one really cares that I'm seeing Book of Mormon and almost hosted for a group of television lawyers. It isn't exactly why you came out; we all know the reason people come to quiz is to show their knowledge of "stoner films" and or the official languages of countries. Or you came out to yell out wrong answers, because thats just part of the show. We started the night with making sure the quizzers knew the 'alphabet' and how quickly you can go through all the actors who have played Batman. Then we had popular songs that had kids singing in them, but

Rejects, Windmills, and How I Really Feel
Jacy

Let's not beat around the bush, the world is in turmoil. Every day we are glued to the news to see what craziness happened today, and I think about saying things like "tonight at quiz we won't leak confidential information" or "all quizzers have to pledge their loyalty". I think that would be hilarious and topical. But I also think its contrived and unnecessary, so instead I'll just go back and forth with teams about how I'm saying their name wrong or try to act disgusted about certain teams. Speaking of, I do best when I have an enemy in the audience, and I'm always looking for one, so that's why I'm cruel.So we started the night with a movie round that included some of the best movies

An almost 'Botched' Monday
Jacy

Just to set the record straight, I had no idea they were filming Botched at Hamburger Mary's. So I had no idea we would have a delay on the start time, and didn't know what time they'd be done until they were done. And, even stranger, I had no idea that I would be the person who came out on stage to introduce the person, and do sound for their performance. So we all got more than we bargained for.So let me say it now, thank you to everyone who stayed a bit longer last night, and who were now extras on Botched.Oh, and the restaurant had no idea Botched was coming either, they were supposed to be coming on a different night. And a different location. So, just a wild Monday. But

A Celebration of the Heckle
Jacy

It's been a little bit, but I want to commend the crowd for their amazing heckling last night. We usually get a few "your mom"s or my favorite which is of course shouting "answer" when I say don't shout out any answers. But we had some definite highlights last night, the one that sticks out to me was when I asked what you call the mix of cocaine and heroin and Michael the bartender said "a good time". Classic Michael.I want to thank the people from the Mark Taber Theater for their sponsorship and their show Archduke which we were able to get so many shout outs for, I mean who would think we would have the World War I question, and making a round about bridges. This leads us to another

Quiz is like a Pizza
Jacy

I've said it before, my theory to the quiz is that the quiz itself is a cheese pizza, it's great on its own but you come back for the toppings. And me discussing birthday presents for my mother, Stephen King short stories, and other tangents, that is the pepperoni or mushrooms or whatever it is that you put on your pizza.Teagan & Sara sing-a-longs, well let's say that's pineapple, some people think its an abomination but I love them.I did have a momentary time warp from the Leona Lewis song, which took me right back to 2008, when that song was popping, and the girl I was dating at the time who had that song on a VERY short playlist that would repeat often, and for reasons

Planned Parenthood Gift Cards
Jacy

First, let me say thank you to everyone who came and participated in the Quiz for a Cause last night, we raised $90 for Planned Parenthood, which is better than nothing, and proves what I always thought was true; my quizzers are secretly great people. I know, we live in LA and have to wear the tough exterior, but now that we live under an "unfriendly" administration we've learned that we have to work together. And Planned Parenthood is important, we all aren't lucky enough to hang out in bars that have buckets of condoms all over the bar, including the host stand, so it's nice to help such a great organization. I did get a gift card as the prize for the raffle for everyone that but I

Hair Flip
Jacy

I guess I forgot to mention it was Passover, which is fine because obviously we were at Hamburger Mary's and not having a Seder, so no one was celebrating anyway. Plus, matza isn't great. I could next time have everyone sit down and go through the story of Moses, but it's a lot easier if everyone just watches the Charlton Heston movie and we're all on the same page. The only other story you should look up is the Orange on a Seder plate ritual. That is what makes Passover worth celebrating. Oh, and the part where the Jews are freed or whatever.  Also, I can't think of a good pun for Passover and Quiz, so, forget it.No, we didn't discuss any Jewish holidays, but we did all find out

Jewel is a National Treasure...
Jacy

See, there is always witty wordplay going on at quizzes, this is what happens when you put a bunch of nerds in a room, so we got to play with that thought for a while. I did point out that they were probably confused, see jewels are usually involved with treasure, not that Jewel is a treasure. Also, and you can take this joke with you, I always say that the movie National Treasure ends with him just finding a mirror because Nic Cage is himself a national treasure. We also discovered that I'd like to speak like My Fair Lady, but only in the beginning of the movie, and that when I talk fast I don't enunciate well and say things like "Raiders of the Last Ark" which quickly disolves

It's My Job!
Jacy

Listen, I’m just trying to entertain you while giving you a small glimpse into my small world, so I’ll tell stories that may be “pointless” or only “kinda funny”.  It’s not all going to be the best stories, some of them will end with me getting yelled by a security intercom, but this is part of the job.  Certain jobs cause me to try and sneak through building security, other times my job is to try and tell the story.  Fine, I’ll try to have a better story next time.  And

Which Chad?
Jacy

There are so many things that could be a Chad.  It’s a country, it’s attached to a ballot, it’s a loud guy at a bar that doesn’t take consent seriously and wears Axe Body Spray.  Well, maybe I’m being prejudice against dudes with that name, but that’s what we all think of.  Oh, and it was pointed out The Chad was Tom Green in Charlie’s Angels, which I had forgotten because I only think of Crispin Glover and Justin Theroux in those movies.  JT had such good hair!

Now on a Monday
Jacy

That’s right Mondays!  See, sometimes Monday is a problem. We have some bars that have to postpone or re-schedule quiz because of Monday Night Football… not a problem where we are.  On the other hand, we did have a very “Mary’s” centric problem, Monday used to be Rupaul’s Drag Race nights.  Meaning a watch party and big discussions on who should go home, but they just announced that the show is moving to Friday’s, another bullet dodged.  So we get our Mondays without interruption.

Swedish for "Windows to the Soul"
Jacy

As I’ve said before, I use quiz as a way for quizzers to know me, and last night was no exception.  I don’t think I gave too much information, nor was it very revealing about me, but I’ll admit it here once again; I love the food section at IKEA.  I’m talking less about the cafeteria where you get the plates and more about the grocery section that has the candy, herring in a tube or whatever, and of course the Lingonberry in all its possible forms.  It’s an exciting way to celebrate the fact that you made it

I missed the bus to Stars Hollow
Jacy

I’m not saying that I’ll never watch it, but I’m saying its most likely that I’ll never watch it and I’m okay with it.  With the number of Netflix shows I want to watch, and just other things floating around (The Path, is that good?) I’m probably just not going to get to Gilmore Girls, because Poirot and Midsummer Murders are just so great and there’s a ton of those murder mysteries.  See, at every turn there is just another show. And after talking about Jesse’s Girl and how good of a song that was in Boogie Nights I’ll

These Are My Confessions
Jacy

It’s true, I use this blog as a diary, or one of those cameras on reality shows when they “confess” how they really feel.  I don’t know if they have a name besides Confession Camera, and I’m really just thinking of The Real World where it may or may not have been called that.  But unlike they way they use that on The Bad Girls Club, I’m using it to tell things about me and not talk shit on others. What’s that confession, well, when one of the teams requested I play “more musicals” on my playlist and I told them “I

The World We Live In
Jacy

Just a quick note, on my pre-quiz walk around West Hollywood I ran across a small corner full of people protesting Trump and the possibilty of an Executive Order against gay rights.  I would say there as about 40-50 people.  Across the street, on a different corner was about 8 people shouting “Gays for Trump”.  So, thats the world I was hosting in. I liked a lot of the quiz last night, including a Mystery Round, some barely Spanish language songs (including the Ricky Martin hit), and a super fun round combining

"Name of the Song"
Jacy

You know, I don’t always say it, but I’m very proud of my quizzers, especially last night.  Sure I may give people a little grief for not knowing about Blondie or something like that, but really everyone at Mary’s, especially last night, was my favorite kind of crowd.  First, unlike other venues, you guys know to yell “answers” when I say don’t shout out any answers, and that starts the night correctly for me.  Second, I love interjections from teams, not always when they shout out incredibly wrong answers, last night did have some good ones, but we
