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

The Dark Cloud Over the Horizon
Jacy

I mean, it wasn’t exactly, but I tried my best to not mention the lingering dark cloud looming.  Things for it were happening just down the street, but we have to move on. I drove just a few blocks from it. The XXX premier is something that is going to happen, we have to accept Vin Diesel as the new superstar, and there’s nothing we can do about it. Ha ha ha, I’m watching the coverage now and, oh boy. Sure, the Trump Inauguration was a correct answer, because we mentioned the one big star that agreed to play the event, but I didn’t dwell.

Talking about Boger City!
Jacy

I mean, that was a real town name that I could not wait to tell everyone was a real place that world famous NASCAR driver Dick Trickle died.  Yes, thee Dick Trickle.    That was, as you would guess, our special round on “what Donald Trump allegedly did in Russia” which, as you would guess, was just one big pee joke, and I loved every second of it.  Now it wouldn’t be a Jacy quiz if there wasn’t a small obstacle, which last night was the fact that i didn’t have my laptop charger and, because my laptop is about

Playing Playlists Periodically
Jacy

I have a few playlists that I go back and forth with, after originally only really using one at Hamburger Mary’s that was continually changing, which has caused some reverberations with the crowd.  For one, everyone seems to think it’s my girlfriend that has the superior playlist.  This observation is probably true, her’s does have a lot of Phil Collins, The Cure, and of course “King of Wishful Thinking”, but it’s not everything.  Man cannot live on steak alone.

The Night I Met Another Jac(e)y
Jacy

I’m sure this happens a lot to Chad and Julia, but it doesn’t happen much to me, and this one we even have to make a small concession for, since it was technically Jacey, but its the closest I’ve ever gotten to meeting someone with the same name as me.  We were both a little shocked to find out that was the case, and though mine is some sort of Native American word for “the moon” and her’s was a shortened version of a flower, it’s the same and we’re happy to have finally found each other.  Now, that was an exciting part of the quiz, but we all know the most exciting

Continually Selfish Quizzing
Jacy

I know, the blog ends up just being about me and how I’m connected to the quiz.  I’m so selfish.  So what will I choose to talk about in the blog, how much of my high school era music was going on tonight.  First of all, the playlist that we had going on was full of 90’s hits, including my gf’s favorite, Better Than Ezra.  Now, I’m not sure how factual the name is, because there are some cool Ezras in the world, but they are a fun band.

More Eastern Europe Than You're Used To
Jacy

It probably was the most you’ve ever spoken about Yugoslavia, that is of course unless you took a number of Eastern European History classes like I did.  Or you were doing the trip they did in the movie classic Euro-Trip.  I believe those are the only two reasons you would talk about it.  Oh, and Euro-Trip stands the test of time if any of you were thinking about it, Scottie doesn’t know is still hilarious, Michelle Trachtenberg is still cool even when she isn’t in Buffy, and it’s still fun to make fun of European stereotypes.  It was a

Post Quiz Confessions
Jacy

I use the blog to confess things.  If there was a funny thing behind the scenes, deeper stories behind the question, or if anything happened afterward that was funny.  This is a different type. For me, hosting quiz is just an excuse for me to go on a stage, say stupid things, and play a lot of Phil Collins.  I’m kidding, we all knew that. Don’t get me wrong, I love the questions, and I love the atmosphere, but my real goal is to make all of you realize the genius of the man that some say ruined Genesis.  Now, besides I’m sure

You Didn't Complain Last Night
Jacy

One of the favorite things for Quizmasters and regular quizzers to both do is to “mess with the format”.  Since they all know what is coming next, they can do it before the QM does it; so before I said “don’t shout out the answers” like I always do someone already did the joke where they yell “answers”.  That is a very inside baseball joke, because he already knew what I was going to say.  My big joke is to just ask if this is karaoke.  Or make awful team names that the person

Because We Make it Fun
Jacy

Sure I could read trivial pursuit cards, or just ask things like “who directed that Korean War movie?”, but we’re here to spice things up, say questions to give you hints, and be a personality.  That’s what I do best, be a snarky guy with a microphone, and argue with people when they say things like “that’s got a triple negative” or “why do you have to say it like that”.  It give me a reason to justify my job.  And what a time to have that conversation while training the very wonderful Ruth, who learned right

That's Not Appropriate Usage of the Term
Jacy

Don’t get me wrong, I love it when quizzers have excitement toward answers and yell out, but it isn’t normal for during these times for someone to yell “yass qween”.  I told them that I don’t believe that was the right use of the term.  But what do I know. I did deal with the orange cloud of sadness looming over all of us when I introduced Round 1, which was a news related round, where I said “don’t worry, we won’t deal with that”.  Round 2 was Gaelic covers of popular songs, which were way

Saturday Night on a Thursday

Who doesn’t love the Bay City Rollers?!?! Probably a number of people and I accept that, but Saturday Night is an awesome song and I won’t stop playing it, even if it’s a Thursday! So There! It has been a few weeks since I’ve done quiz at Hamburger Marys since we were on hiatus while Rupaul had her All Stars craziness and everyone argued about the merits of Alyssa Edwards.  I am in the “she’s so funny” camp and will defend her, but that’s not what we’re here to talk about; we are here to talk more about shitty 70’s disco!

A Quiz for Jodi
Jacy

I mean, I just love it when we can take something like that and run with it, and I thank Jodi for making that happen.  First, since she didn’t fill out the name on the 1st Round answer sheet, I had to ask and she said “Jodi” which I of course spelt with a “y” and was wrong, but I had to remind her that there were two other people at her table.  Then I said to them “guys, can you believe Jodi just did that?”  Then, when we moved on to Round 2, entitled “who’s that girl” I did go
