I May Never Reach My Destiny
JeffreyTanguay

 was considering picking up the Destiny update, but I haven't played in almost a year, so when I logged on I expected an update. It's a network based game, after all. I was not expecting an update the size of an ACTUAL FULL GAME. 13.75GB. My ps4 is choking, trying to download it. When I started the DL, it said six hours remaining. now it shows twenty two. it's been like 30 minutes. i love how futuristic this game is: I can't even play it until the future. Sign of the times.   Now it says (23 hours left). at this rate, by tomorrow I'll be able to play it on Saturday.   Quiz was pretty fun! The best bart was round 7, when

Getting To The Top Of Things
JeffreyTanguay

It really is a great feeling when you decide to do something, and then make it happen. Last year I started rock climbing outdoors, and at the place I climb there was a route I could not complete. The difficulty rating was fairly low, and something I could do at the gym with no real problem, but the  reality was I got to a bit I just couldn't figure out how to get past. Three times I tried, last year, and three times I failed at the same spot.   But not today.   I got to the bit that stumped me, and through sheer force of will managed to pull myself up this sheer rock face, clip the bolt, and move on to the next part. I made it

Labor Day Pains Many, But Not This Quizmaster!
JeffreyTanguay

Man, what an awesome Labor Day. Or more precisely, what an awesome POST labor day. By which I mean, I managed to party hard AND not suffer too terribly the next day -- and I did it by design. After I take a moment to brush the dirt off my shoulders, I'll explain. Ahem.   Careful moderation of cannabis edible and beer intake mixed with steady intake of water. Boom! That's it! Just know what you're getting into and how it's going to make you feel! Yeah, I sure did want a glass of that eight percent coffee stout, but a few of those add up quick! Anyways, the point is, I went out drinking all day and didn't overdo it. This is such a rare occurrence that I have to

Cucumbers Taste Better Pickled!

It's a damn fact, and I'm sticking to it. Don't throw cucumbers at me, it changes nothing.   Well dang! We had a heck of a rainstorm out here in Aurora last night! Some of our quizzers almost didn't make it, but luckily a few puddles and bad drivers wont stop our die hards!   I got a chance to try the Harry Potter quiz out the other day at it was intense! Definitely a challenge, even for somebody who has read the books multiple times. I mention this because I heard a rumor about the next one. In any case, keep your ear the the ground, because the next one is gonna be cool! This quiz was fully booked like the day after I

Getting Zen With The Flow State
JeffreyTanguay

I've had an idea rolling around in my head for a while now, and I have started to scratch the surface of making progress. It's pretty nice to get super focused and get a lot of stuff done; in this case, it was about 12 hours of work completed in about 8, and with that both new challenges and a feeling of getting stuff done. The problem is when you get so focused on a task that you sort of forget to write a blog until the deadline. Oops! At least I remembered! I also managed to make some progress on a new project that I just thought of. Will any of this ever end? Maybe, maybe not, but if I finish it's gonna be awesome.   I also am serving in a unofficial capacity

A Taste Of Something New
JeffreyTanguay

This has been a week for new stuff! First off, I got a new tattoo! I don't get them very often as they are expensive, but when I can, I go for it, and this was the week. I'm stoked at how it turned out. Also, No Man's Sky came out yesterday, and damn if exploring space looking for resources isn't super addicting. I was so into playing that I was almost late for quiz! I was supposed to go eat some awesome dinner, and I forgot! You guys are lucky that I kind of have my shit together.   We also had some new formats on some of the rounds last night! Round 2 confused you by asking for the album instead of the artist, Round 7 was a sooner or later round… With

I Got Laser Eyes Like Cyclops

I have been putting off getting new glasses for a long time. A very long time. I've had spots of the laminate bubbling for at least two years, and it all came to a head about a week ago when I dropped them and put a giant scratch right in the middle of one of the lenses. Found ot that I have had this pair for almost six years. WHAT. Anyways, I managed to find basically the same frame that I had, and as soon as I'm done with this I'm off to go pick up my new specs.

It Was Good For Me, Was It Good For You?
JeffreyTanguay

Alright, loyal readers: it's time to do an informal poll. Did ya have fun last night? I sure did! Part of that has to do with the fact that I maaay have pregamed a bit before quiz, leading to an overall mischievous attitude, and a general lack of fuck-giving. And I enjoyed myself immensely.    To bad that I have no way to actually record your answers. Oh well!   We had a few new teams tonight to complement your familiar faces! Last night's quiz was pretty tough, and the scores reflected that. We had a few groupings of pretty close scores, and one major outlier: the notorious Usual Gang Of Idiots used a tactical

More Like Pokemon NO, Amirite?
JeffreyTanguay

The first round of the night was based on Pokemon Go. I had thought we were past this, but I guess the wave is still rolling through pop culture with some momentum, so here we are! As of this morning, the most recent news item is players in Bosnia being urged to avoid areas with unexploded munitions. I also found out that there are exploding pokemon. Coincidence? I guess we'll just have to watch the news.   Pretty entertaining quiz last night! We looked at songs with screwups, TV shows with karaoke scenes, and various Sherlocks, homes! I made some bad jokes, and this time was (deservedly) not rewarded with laughter. Can't please all the people all the time, I

I have one episode of Game of Thrones left before I am totally caught up. It's been a hell of a ride. I have to say that I'm really glad they made this series into a show. It is so much more accessible and the action scenes have been fantastic. I'm also happy that I have managed to completely avoid spoilers for season six! It's tough, since I spend a lot of time on the internet, but I did it! As soon as you read this, it's watching time!    I have some good news!

Reliving The Past and Shutting The F*%K up!
JeffreyTanguay

I started reading all of the Game of Thrones books right after the first season ended. I was captivated, and read all four of the books that were out, one after the other. I was also playing through Skyrim at the time, which is all giants and dragons and stuff, and then the fifth book came out so I read that too.   and then I was burned out on the whole thing. I couldn't stand fantasy for a while. I wanted literally nothing to do with the series for a while, so I got really out of it and totally stopped paying attention.   Until recently.   I started watching the show again, since I heard about some cool

Sometimes your Week is Less Like, Good and Stuff
JeffreyTanguay

So I have had a less than optimal week. First off, I went to a party and, after apparently blacking out (like, SUPER hard) managed to completely lose track of my iPod. I'm pretty sad, since they don't make those anymore and the third party market is ridiculously overpriced and inflated. So that sucks! Also, I went to Comic Con, and I guess i got a bit excited since I spent more than my budget allowed for, and as a result, my auto-bill-pay got zealous and paid my cell bill -- which overdrafted me. Shit. And then, as if to add insult to injury, I managed to drop my cellphone on the ground today -- shattering the screen, and, since I didn't notice when it happened, allowing it

I got to go to Denver Comic Con last week! It was pretty awesome, even if it was only one day. I had a mental wish list of stuff to look out for, and I managed to find pretty much everything I wanted! I got some neat cosplay pictures, nut the thing that stuck with me the most was the CON CRUD…    See, big conventions have a ton of people around, and its pretty common to end up with a cold afterwards. I didn't really plan around that, and forgot to Airborne up, so I guess I get what I deserve.

I'd like to think that I'm decent at instruments. I never expect to be as good as Beethoven, or Clapton, or Pastorius, no matter how much I practice, but dang if it isn't a nice feeling to bang away at whatever instrument and have it feel right? I just started messing around with drumsticks and after like months of pretending I have drumsticks in my car while I drive round and I gotta say I feel like maybe if I work real hard and practice I might be able to not entirely suck at drums.

It'S Time To Get To The Top Of Some Stuff
JeffreyTanguay

It's funny. You'd think that after eight years of being an enthusiastic user of cannabis, I might have checked out a certain "marijuana-themed" sandwich shop by now, but somehow I hadn't -- until today. That's right; I went and checked out Cheba Hut! Pretty tasty sammich, but I liked the feel of the place more than anything, so I hung out and bullshitted with employees and customers for a while. I got a Bomb Blunt (large meatball) and a beer to wash it down. All I can say is, I kinda wish the place smelled a bit more like weed; it would be authentic or something!   I get to go hiking tomorrow, but haven't figured out where yet, so I'm hoping that it's a new place.

As my time as a Paduwan comes to a close, I am grateful to have had Jedi Master Jeff to steer me through my final test and to have the wonderful Jackson’s crowd in my corner.  It was a great night of quizzing, accompanied by the soulful sounds of DJ Jazzy Jim.  Tonight’s quiz left me wondering whether Snoop Dogg has naked pictures of some GWD higher-ups, since he’s recently managed to appear in several audio rounds.  On the other hand, you can never have too much Snoop.  Ten fabulous teams turned out to do battle, including some new arrivals to Jackson’s, and we were excited to have such a big crowd.  We also had a tie-breaker for third place,
