This Week Is Fantastic, Finally
El Jeffe

After one of the longest summers ever, we finally have a significant stretch of cold weather. At the moment it's just 5º out, and to be honest i'm not thrilled -- I like being warm.   That being said, it lends an air of authenticity to the game I just started, called Steep. Its a game about snowboarding, skiing, parasailing and wingsuits, and its super fun, and all you have to do to make it really realistic is open the door while you play, and it's like you're actually there!   Or, you know, leave the door closed, heater on, and don't suffer unnecessarily! Drink some hot cocoa and then jump off a mountain and glide down

The Swedest Quiz Of The Year
El Jeffe

Yesterday, and today, have been completely consumed by the launch of Final Fantasy XV. I have been eagerly awaiting this game for a long time, and so far it is completely meeting my expectations. We'll see what happens as I get further, but this has been super fun.   The very first question of Round 1 just happened to have Sweden as the answer, and I just happend to arbitrarily pick a song by a band from Sweden to accompany the round. One of our quizzers asked if I did it intentionally, and even though I did not, I decided it would be fun to see if i could get through quiz only playing bands from sweden.    I managed.   Round

I'm Begin To Doubt Your Commitment To Sparkle Motion
El Jeffe

Last night was fun. Like, a really good time. There are a few reasons why, but to start, we had some non-standard rounds. That means, if you play regularly, that some of the rounds didn't follow the standard protocols that you might be used to by now. Like Round 2, where we knocked the title/artist paradigm right on its ass and tried to screw with the quizzers! Or the round where you only need to get one answer right to win, as long as it's the right answer!   Look, I like any situation where I get to mess with people and get paid, and also schädenfreude is a really great word that I like to use as much as possible, and you should just freaking google

More Like Geeks Who Freakin' PARTY!
El Jeffe

One of my favorite feelings is when I'm reading a book or watching a movie and one of the characters does something that is totally badass, and I can't help but pump my fist and celebrate. I got one of those while reading in my car right before quiz. Somebody materializing a knife out of midair on accident and whoopin' some ass just has that effect, I guess.    So I'm not surprised, but we had one round that was all about drugs and alcohol, and every team got every answer right. I know this thing is called Geeks Who Drink but we might need to change the name, since you guys, uh, know your "stuff", if you get my drift.    Sometimes

AMERICA. FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE.

Welp. It's election night. MIght as well talk about that, and say, WAY TO GO, AMERICA! YOU DID IT! I don't know what IT is, yet, but if it turns out to be good you can look back to this post and feel good, and if it's not so good, well, look at this post and feel bad.   Because either way, America: You deserve it. 4 years! YOU DID THIS. I reserve the right to be as vocal as I like as a result! The only thing I ask is to OWN YOUR VOTE. If you did good, be humble, and if you messed up, say so. I know I will.

Hanging Out With Chokeago Fans
El Jeffe

Wow. what a missed opportunity. Ok, full disclosure, we had some Superfans in our midst, and that might have made quiz slightly more interesting by splitting the audio over to a side room, but I feel like it worked out OK… from the perspective of a quizmaster. DISCLAIMER: I have family members on both sides of the issue, and don't want to go into it, but…   WHAT A LUDICROUS DISPLAY THAT WAS!   I'm sorry, but I was really hoping that Chicago would tie it up in the Seventh, with that bases-loaded, full-count opportunity What an awesome chance, and yet it just… floated away. Inning 9 came close but just didn't deliver.

And Here Come The Pretzels
Cousin Chet

Hey everybody! It’s me! Not Jeff! I had a great time quizzing with you all last night. And if I upset you by not being Jeff or by anything I said, I apologize. Unless you’re a Cubs fan. In which case, go fuck yourself. Listen, I  have nothing against the Cubs organization. I just can’t stand their fans. They seem to wear the whole “loveable loser” thing as a badge of honor. But the thing is, a lot of the ones I have met aren’t actually from Chicago. They’re bandwagoneers. And yes, I don’t think that’s a real word, but I will use it anyway. And as for the fans who are actually from Chicago, they seem pretty arrogant about the

I'm Not Ready For The Cold Weather Yet!
El Jeffe

  So I'm sitting here writing this, and the temperature outside hasn't gotten much higher than 50 degrees or so, which is really bumming me out. I should probably be more bummed out the fact that we have had 70 degree weather all through September and October, and by what that signifies for the future of our planet and stuff, but right now it's more like I forgot to bring a heavier jacket and now I;m kind of cold and irritated about it. And I want to be wearing shorts! The really crazy thing about this is if the weather holds out like this through the end of the month we are going to see more of the risqué halloween costumes this year.

All Tied Up, and That Beautiful Sense of Accomplishment
El Jeffe

It's pretty awesome when, after spending a ton of time on a project, it finally comes together, and you're done! I am directly following up to the post from last week about the Lego set me and my buddy built. All told, it ended up being about 13 hours worth of work, since the smaller kits inside got progressively less complicated and smaller, and guys. GUYS! totally worth it. This set, number 42056, is truly a piece of art. There is so much attention to detail (motor, working multi gear transmission, suspension, doors, spoiler…), it is mind bogging. And I got to put it together! (spaced out for a minute) I also just determined you could install a Lego motor and it would probably drive

Technic Correct is Best Correct!

I'm having a pretty good week! Work has been going well, I had a really fun time at quiz last night,and then I got to go home and spend 5 hours putting together a serious Lego kit. It's a Technic version of a Porsche 911 Gt3 RS. Guys, this thing came with a literal book of instructions; it is seriosuly an inch and a half thick. And this thing is awesome! We jst finished the steering assembly, and we have three more freaking boxes to go. This set has almost three thousand pieces, yo!

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
El Jeffe

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

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!

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.

Getting Zen With The Flow State
El Jeffe

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
