Mad Rhymes Yo
Play Freebird!

Current Champions: Jalapeno Business Former Champions: Let's Play Doctor Well, Frank Ocean happened. Anyway, here’s my recap and ramblings of a few things tonight, known as my Notent Notables:   Forrest Gump on Donald Trump (R1): Round 1 featured clues rhyming with answers. I do enjoy how this round format makes me feel like Dr. Seuss. The best rhymes are when I have no idea what the movie is. I’m going to admit that I’ve never heard of Turner & Hooch, which came out 2 years before I was born.   -Wub Wub Catch Em All (R7) Round 7 featured remixed and covered

Hello Quizzers! The name is Jay and this Quizmaster's story begins in Skokie, Illinois, but since very few people from the Boston-area know where that is, let's just call it Chicago; I mean, its a direct subway line and only two towns over....FINE, I grew up in a suburb, are you happy now? Graduated from Babson College in 2013 with a Bachelor's in Business Administration and a Master's in Accounting. I'm a nerd by day, and a geek by night. Decided to stay out here and give this East-coast thing a shot. I like to follow the Vin Diesel school of Geekdom. If you want to compare lifts and gym routines, I'll be there; but if you want to geek out, and I mean if you REALLY want to geek out, I'm your go-to-guy. -Music? 5x year attendee of Lollapalooza Music Festival, 3x Karaoke champion in 2008. I will stand firmly behind the idea that RHCP needs John Frusciante, Progressive R&B is the music of the future, and that Drum & Bass is the best EDM sub-genre. -Video Games? Been playing since Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the NES, and haven't stopped since. FPS, MOBA, JRPG, MMORPG, whatever the hell Katamari Damacy was (other than completely awesome), I got you covered. -TV? I may or may not still reference lines from Archer, South Park, Futurama, and the Simpsons on a daily basis. -Movies? Been watching them constantly since my dad made me watch Bloodsport with Jean-Claude Van Damme at age 5. Favorite View Askew (Kevin Smith) comedies are Clerks and Chasing Amy, least favorites are Mallrats and Clerks II; I refuse to count Jersey Girl as an actual member of that universe. -General Geekiness? I had a 3-month stint as Dungeon Master for my D&D group, I hosted a LAN-party about a week before writing this bio, and I make sure to check IGN, Kotaku, and Reddit on a daily (closer to hourly)-basis With all that said, I hope to see you on the quizzing battlegrounds soon.

Been watching them constantly since my dad made me watch Bloodsport with Jean-Claude Van Damme at age 5. Favorite View Askew (Kevin Smith) comedies are Clerks and Chasing Amy, least favorites are Mallrats and Clerks II; I refuse to count Jersey Girl as an actual member of that universe. -General Geekiness? I had a 3-month stint as Dungeon Master for my D&D group, I hosted a LAN-party about a week before writing this bio, and I make sure to check IGN, Kotaku, and Reddit on a daily (closer to hourly)-basis With all that said, I hope to see you on the quizzing battlegrounds soon.

Current Champions: Mozart couldn't find his teacher, Because he was Haydn   Former Champions: Communal Burrito It’s Wednesday, HUMP DAY!. Whether you were at White Horse for the basketball game, the hockey game, or our weekly pub quiz, it didn’t matter, we made sure you had fun. Anyway, here’s my recap and ramblings of a few things tonight, known as my Notent Notables:     -I’m a Dude, He’s a Dude, She’s a dude (R3): Round 3 featured 3 people of a similar category. The major notable of this round was that I could not

Hello Quizzers! The name is Jay and this Quizmaster's story begins in Skokie, Illinois, but since very few people from the Boston-area know where that is, let's just call it Chicago; I mean, its a direct subway line and only two towns over....FINE, I grew up in a suburb, are you happy now? Graduated from Babson College in 2013 with a Bachelor's in Business Administration and a Master's in Accounting. I'm a nerd by day, and a geek by night. Decided to stay out here and give this East-coast thing a shot. I like to follow the Vin Diesel school of Geekdom. If you want to compare lifts and gym routines, I'll be there; but if you want to geek out, and I mean if you REALLY want to geek out, I'm your go-to-guy. -Music? 5x year attendee of Lollapalooza Music Festival, 3x Karaoke champion in 2008. I will stand firmly behind the idea that RHCP needs John Frusciante, Progressive R&B is the music of the future, and that Drum & Bass is the best EDM sub-genre. -Video Games? Been playing since Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the NES, and haven't stopped since. FPS, MOBA, JRPG, MMORPG, whatever the hell Katamari Damacy was (other than completely awesome), I got you covered. -TV? I may or may not still reference lines from Archer, South Park, Futurama, and the Simpsons on a daily basis. -Movies? Been watching them constantly since my dad made me watch Bloodsport with Jean-Claude Van Damme at age 5. Favorite View Askew (Kevin Smith) comedies are Clerks and Chasing Amy, least favorites are Mallrats and Clerks II; I refuse to count Jersey Girl as an actual member of that universe. -General Geekiness?

Current Champions: Communal Burrito   Former Champions: No Points It’s Wednesday, Wednesday, gotta get down on Wednesday. Anyway, here’s my recap and ramblings of a few things tonight, known as my Notent Notables:     -You Think You Know Me? (R3): Round 3 was two truths and a lie. Apparently the Japanese have a namesake verb named after George H.W. Bush meaning “To publicly vomit”. We also concluded that Nicki Minaj isn’t Jewish, and that Guy Fieri can’t play golf.   -Make Love, Not Warcraft (R6)

Sports are happening, but I don’t really care anymore about any of the teams. Anyway, here’s my recap and ramblings of a few things tonight, known as my Notent Notables:     -Last Week Tonight except it’s not (R1): Our round 1 was country descriptions courtesy of John Oliver.

Current Champions: Gratuitous Alliteration   Former Champions: Coalition of the Illin' Sports drafts, politics, etc. etc. etc. Anyway, here’s my recap and ramblings of a few things tonight, known as my Notent Notables:     -Who Needs Neighbors when you have nice things (R3): Our round 3 was on neighboring countries.

Current Champions: Coalition of the Illin' (2 Week Streak) Well, last wek was interesting…this week is a little more tame. Trump happened, Bernie is still trying, Civ 6 got announced, [Spoiler redacted] in Game of Thrones, and I got to re-watch Deadpool on Blu-Ray a few times.
