I Might Secretly Be A Rally Driver!
JeffreyTanguay

You know, after a long, long time living in Colorado, I have become accustomed to inclement weather. Driving in snow is a whole differnt ballgame, and for a lot of people it's a huge drag. Luckily, a few years ago, I discovered how incredibly useful, or rather, necessary, a good set of winter tires are. So, while the roads were at their absolute worst, I got to drive around having the time of my life. I seriously just cruised around on the way home, having a blast being all wiggly. Sometimes I feel like I missed my calling as a winter race car driver. There is something special about whipping the steering wheel back and forth just to stay in a straight line, or starting to fishtail and then

My Quizzers REALLY Know Their Nurses
JeffreyTanguay

I do the visual round every week, just to gauge my performance and challenge my brain. I was pretty happy to get 6 of them spot on, but holy crap, you guys nailed it. A bunch of 8s on my scoresheet. It's like you people know every nurse in existence or something. Also, I never played or watched Pokemon, so, that's a blind spot for me.   I feel like I did a pretty good job with keeping a straight face on our funniest round, where we changed a single letter in a show and then described it. A lot of laughs, but I definitely had a hard time not laughing at the last one: Shart Tank. Not just because the premise is ridiculous and funny, but because

Nobody Says No To Free Alcohol! I Should Have.
JeffreyTanguay

So, remember how last week I was complaining about a hangover? Well, Monday night was my birthday, and I can remember the first part of the night out. I'm pretty sure I went to three places, and by the time I got to the third I was almost but not quite blacked out. I am hazy, but I'm pretty sure that I drank about three times what I average, and when I woke up yesterday morning I was in hell. Ooh, a headache? Yeah, I forgot how bad a hangover can be, since I very very rarely drink that much. In any case, I was laid out for most of the day (since I didn't have much to do other than Quiz!) and a bit off my game. I'd love to make a bold announcement that I'll never drink again, but we all

The Shots Do Not Maketh The Man
JeffreyTanguay

I woke up today with my head feeling like a tiny person was slamming a door in there at regular intervals. Not just any door, either, but a heavy door. That is disheartening, because I had my usual two beers plus a shot of whiskey, and have to suffer for it. I miss the good ol days when my body could process three times that and I'd just be a bit groggy the next day. There is something to be said for falling apart as you get older, but damn! I thought I had more time! That being said, it's always nice to get surprise alcohol, so thanks to Peyton's Jock Strap for the freebie!   I was pretty excited to be able to announce that Lee, one of our regular quizzers,

DING! You Are Now Free To PUSH THE BUTTON!
JeffreyTanguay

So I saw The Hateful Eight last Saturday. I liked it so much that on Sunday, I went and saw it again. For a lot of his films, Tarantino is really good at tension building through dialogue, and over-the-top action. This one has both, and may not be what you would expect, but is something special just the same. I really want to see some nominations for the acting to come out of this -- the acting was seemingly campy but actually superb. I also really suggest seeing it again while it's fresh in your mind; it will really help you appreciate the nuances. I won't say more, because spoilers, but definitely go see it while you can.   I have to say, it's been a little

A Reminiscence oF 2015, AKA Unoriginal Year In Review
JeffreyTanguay

Well, New Years' Eve is tomorrow, so I think I'll do a little "year in review" because it's easy and I doubt you want to hear about Fallout.   I had a pretty awesome year, looking back. I got to go on a cruise and climb on rocks in Alaska! I got to see my extended family take over the entire atrium of the ship by way of the sushi bar! I got to go to Comic-Con in San Diego! I got a speeding ticket in another state! I blacked out in a hotel after a DragonBallZ party and only destroyed my knee! I had In-n-Out THREE TIMES! Holy shit!   I also had both of my computers crash and ran quiz from an iPad. Hey it's better than yelling!

Unexpected Vacations Before The Force Awakens
JeffreyTanguay

I was very surprised last Tuesday to wake up to a notification that quiz was cancelled. I had expected snow, but the last few forecasts were all doom and gloom and ended up being underwhelming. This one, apparently, delivered. I looked outside, decided I didn't need to actually go anywhere, and spent the entirety of my day off marathoning Fallout 4. It was a good day. Mad props the the regulars who braved the storm to show up last week even though I didn't. You are the heroes of quiz!   So… anybody see Star Wars: The Force Awakens? I imagine some of you did, and if you're anything like me, you saw it more than once. I really needed to see it a second

I Don't Even Know What I'm Talking About

Sometimes I have all sorts of ideas right before quiz as to what I can write about later. One of the questions will make me laugh, or I'll look something up and find out an interesting fact, or I might even be reminded of something awesome that I had forgotten about, and I will make a mental note to mention that in the blog later. I feel super secure and ready to rock, and then, when the time comes to put pen to paper, I have a vast, empty cavern of inspiration. (I don't actually write my blog on paper -- that would add an extra step or two to the process and also writing makes my hand hurt because I squeeze the fuck out of the pen.) So whatever amazing insights or funny anecdotes I came

Reading Through The Answers To Make A Funny
JeffreyTanguay

I spent a chunk of yesterday playing TopGolf with my father and grandfather yesterday. Sadly, Grandpa had to leave this morning, and I will miss his jokes and stories. Some of them I'd head before, some of them were new to me, but goddamn is that man great! Eighty-nine years old and still super sharp. He loves to flirt with and tease all the ladies, and always has a joke or a story ready. His sense of humor skews to the inappropriate, and he is just a super cool guy. I was hoping he'd come to quiz, but the man was just wiped out.   Anyways… QUIZ! Some really fun rounds last night. My favorite was the one where you had to guess the word that two films had

Hey Look! Here's A Bunch Of Words!
JeffreyTanguay

I just realized that for the first time in a long time, I get a three day weekend, due to Thanksgiving! I'm pretty stoked, since it's been a long time since I've had this much time off. I basically spent the day before quiz throwing down on some Fallout, because after an awesome 11 hour marathon last week (yes, in one day) I haven't had a chance to touch it. Super busy! So, I'm bringing my PS4 to the parents' house so I can cram in some exploration while everybody else watches football. I don't care too much about football. I'm on a fantasy league this season because I wanted to learn about the meta game, which has been interesting, but not interesting enough for me to really care about

The Hype Machine Beat The Snow Machine
JeffreyTanguay

Oh, those forecasts were something else, but as I expected, the results were underwhelming. I was driving in the beginning of it that night, and peeked out my window at 7 in the morning to see what was up. When I could see the road surface, I knew it was all forecasting the worst case scenario, and went back to bed. When I woke up later the sun was out and the snow was melting. But it is interesting to me, because I've noticed an interesting behavior -- when there is a blizzard, people tend to get really hyped up for it, and then disappointed when it doesn't pan out. Like, yeah, you're stuck, and you'll have to shovel, but you'll probably get a day (or two!) off work as a result, and then

GEEKS WHO DRINK AND THE SECRET ACCESS ROAD
JeffreyTanguay

Imagine, after taking the same route to work every day, that with no warning, along your preferred thoroughfare, a wall is constructed. This serves as a puzzle; how do I proceed? Well, this was the situation tonight, with both obvious routes to our venue blocked by a construction site. I was not the first, or last, person to be stumped by this particular conundrum. I, specifically, LEFT the are, drove through a nearby shopping center, and then retraced my steps, and at the last moment, noticed a sign allowing me access to the venue via a previously undiscovered road. Of the teams who played tonight, one found the secret access road. One team said "Fuck it!" and went offroading to get here,

The Last Week Before the (Post) Apocalypse
JeffreyTanguay

I, along with a large subset of the video game playing category of live people, am waiting with excitement for next week's release of Fallout 4. Signs are everywhere, if you look for them. I have been excited for this for a while, and I'm trying to avoid as much information on the internet as I can, because the nature of humanity is to spoil stuff. This morning, leaked footage made the ending known, and the game isn't even out yet!   Anyways, Fallout Fever is in full swing. Our visual round was another Funko guessing game, and who did I see grinning jauntily at me from the corner? Why, none other than Vault Boy! I was picking out music for quiz, as I do to change

THE END IS NIGH, AND SHINY AND CHROME
JeffreyTanguay

I disappeared suddenly over the summer, but planned it in a way where nobody at quiz would notice; I left on this adventure immediately after quiz on night, heading west, to the San Diego Comic Con. That's not the point, and I'm not a travelogue writer; I just wanted a compelling setup.   Anyways, while I was there, I discovered just how popular these Funko POP! toys were. They were EVERYWHERE. You'd see them in booths selling otherwise unrelated stuff! The actual Funko booth took up an entire corner -- and had a dedicated line! If I had less resistance I'd own a bunch of these things, because they have a character that I like. Like Ash, from Evil Dead, who was

I am a real person. I understand that sometimes, life happens. Or you get sick, or tired, or you run out of money, or you are being chased by hungry tigers and angry tribal folks while stealing relics from lost forbidden jungle temples. I get it. Sometimes you just can't make it to quiz. I still love you, ok?   But when you persevere and show up, things can get really entertaining! We only had two teams at the start of quiz, but managed 50% percent growth by the end! That's pretty incredible! I also had more time to hang out and chat, and engage in banter on the mic!

Out Of The Loop, But Playing The Hits Anyways

I am so out of it right now. I had no idea the debate was even happening last night. I have been so focused on packing that I missed even mentions of it. I also almost came to quiz without all of my gear -- it was stacked with a bunch of boxes in the corner!    Fun quiz last night! I got a whole bunch of validation in my choice in music from a nice young lady sitting nearby, which is cool! I figured the lack of complaints pretty much gave me a pass, but positive feedback is awesome! Especially when later, another quizzer comes up to ask about the song I was just playing -- XPEN$IV SHIT by Die Antwoord. Hilarious and crass, I play this just to see if I can
