In Which I Tell A Story That You May Not Believe
JeffreyTanguay

A long time ago I went to a car show in Denver with some friends. The goal of the whole thing was one of my friends was taking part in a breakdancing competition, and due to a car accident we had to leave right after the competition, and I have no idea who won. I had a disposable camera with me to take pictures of all the imports, and I got my picture taken with Tila Nguyen (before the "Tila Tequila" thing was… a thing). She is very small. I am not a huge person at all, and she made me feel like, crazy tall! That picture did not turn out well because whoever took it neglected to use the flash. I don't know if I even have it anymore, now that I think about it. It's in a box, or it's

I have seen tons of movies, and have a watched a few of those waaaay too many times.

I am just good enough at playing guitar to not completely suck at guitar.

I like getting to the tops of things, so climbing and hiking are my favorite outdoorsy stuff.

Spoilers and Peppermint Headaches
JeffreyTanguay

I woke up at 4am with a ripping headache. I know what did it. It was that shot of Rumplemintz, a liquid I have consumed on exactly four occasions. The first was hell, the second two reminded me of the first time, and then, ten years or so later, the fourth occasion occurred last night. It's just so strong, and so sweet, that I cannot process it without pain. At least it wasn't Jaeger!   I am very careful when it comes to stories that I like. The journey of following characters from one place to the next, and experiencing what they experience as you travel through the story, is a huge part of the allure for me. I heard about a spoiler on Game of Thrones last week,

Geeking Out About Games This Week
JeffreyTanguay

I have to say, after many years of being an adult, and seeing things I like slowly drop out of the public eye, I had a really refreshing last week when it comes to video game news. Seriously, things that I thought were cancelled, or dead, or just the dreams of the gaming public, haeb turned out to not just be real, but things that are gping to be coming out soon! So I am going to take a few moments to FREAK OUT about all the cool stuff they announced.   First off: My video game backlog is pretty big, and is about to get bigger. I already need to pick up a current-gen console, and it's looking like Xbox One, as a result of their backwards compatibility announcement.

The Inside Scoop On The Inside Passage
JeffreyTanguay

After a long week of travel, I am back! In case you were wondering, and even if you weren't … I went on a cruise last week! It was a family reunion of sorts, and even though not everybody could make it, there were still over forty people there that I am related to in some way or another. A lot of those forty people, thanks to marriage, and childbirth, are Hawaiian, and the bright yellow tee shirts we all ended up wearing served much the same purpose as brightly colored frogs in the rainforest: LOOK OUT FOR US! Except in this case, instead of poison, like those little frogs, our colors signified PARTY TIME! Since you can't really go anywhere, or get stuck anywhere, when you are on

I Wish I Could Be Bored
Winja

   First off, I’d like to thank you guys for allowing me to sub-host for Jeff tonight at your fresh location.  It’s a fun locale, the beer selection is on point, and you are very serious quizzers.  You guys really own this spot on Tuesday nights because once quiz starts, you lock it down for yourselves, closing the front entrance and side garage door to the bowling alley, like a quizzers’ club house; I approve.  The attached bowling alley was full of kids, as it probably should be (to a certain hour) on a Tuesday night because of summer vacation.  Durn kids, you don’t know how good you have it until it’s
[ ...more... ]

     That there is the St. Sixtus Abbey in Westvleteren, Belgium, makers of some of the best beer in the world - so yeah, they deserve a leap.

     I'll travel for all passions I follow, and I'll line up early.

     I grew up always liking to read out loud, so perhaps that's what drew me to GWD.

     Have an elastic mind and you'll survive, barely.

Multitasking At It's Finest, Or Possibly Not
JeffreyTanguay

I am pretty much in heaven right about now. I just found out that The Venture Bros. season five is available for streaming, and I am so. friggin. happy! I never really got into the show until I found out that it has an overarching narrative -- and then I marathoned the shit out of it. Running jokes, completely over the top characters, drama, action, intrigue, funny sound effects, betrayal, paranoia, shouting… it's freaking great! Unfortunately, when I did that, the show stopped at season four, and went on hiatus, for like… years. And, I totally forgot about it. Until yesterday,

Some Light Reading About The Coming Apocalypse
JeffreyTanguay

A new book came out yesterday that has been so interesting I have yet to be able to put it down. It's about the pilgrimage away from Earth after a natural disaster, and it has been focused on how the people on the ISS are preparing to hole up and escape the planet. Super interesting, and I'm at the part where the end is nigh, so to speak. I was up reading until 3 am, and passed out just before the transition to The End… so I can't wait to get back into it. So many great concepts to think about, like getting rid of thermal energy (I didn't know that was an issue) to using algae fields

I Am The Rocker, The Roller, Teh Out Of Controller!
JeffreyTanguay

This is exciting. I am excited. Tonight, I will revel in glorious, bloody, dusty, growling, screaming, over the top, crazy desert action. I will watch, with glee, as oppressed people come together and fight a huge fight, for REASONS! I will see psychopaths on poles bouncing around, catching on fire, being unpredictable and crazy. My favorite game of all time was inspired by and epitomizes the atmosphere brought by this film's forebears, and I fully expect to leave the showing with a freaky, crescent-like, unstoppable grin. There may be fist pumping. Why?MAD FUCKING MAX, PEOPLE.I have been so freaking excited for this movie. The last one to get all up in my brainstem

Epic Movie Sagas Are The Future
JeffreyTanguay

I got a chance to see Avengers: Age of Ultron, and I have to say it was pretty decent! It had a lot of good action, and some pretty decent character development. My favorite part, though, is seeing the overall bigger picture slowly coalesce. I'm really excited for the upcoming arcs, and it might be enough in the long run to convince me to start reading comics. Where I'm really stoked, though, is for kids. I was thinking about it, and when I was growing up we didn't have extended sagas. Oh, we had Star Wars, and Roots, and a Miniseries TV Event once in a while, but not the type of thing where

Gimme Some Sugar, Baby (Groovy!)
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

When I was a kid, I fell in love with movies. As soon as I got permission to cross the busy street near my house, around 8 years old, I started biking to the video store nearby like once or twice a week. After a month or so, my best friend at the time and I hatched a plan, and basically bluffed our way into getting "Rated-R" authorization. I think we said his dad told us to get a specific movie or something, I can't remember exactly, but the point is it worked, and 8 year old Jeff was given free reign to rent pretty much any movie ever.    So what did we do with our brand new freedom? We rented a couple of movies. The first pick was Predator

Tweets Should Be Read In Your Head, Not Out Loud
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Oh, Twitter. Sometimes, I think about how useful you can be at conveying messages, at communicating with the masses, at spreading ideas. You can see what people are thinking of, what they are interested in, and follow surges of interest that can be come tsunamis of information… but weh you sit back and actually read some tweets, from the Average Jane and Joe, and you realize how much potential we squander just so people can get attention. Also, reading tweets aloud can cause you to become instantly cynical. I never had a problem with the term hashtag until I had to say it out loud, repeatedly, and in front of a crowd, and at no point did I want to punch myself

The Universe Is Really Really Big... Like Your MOM!!! (Ooohhhh)
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

  I have been playing too much Diablo 3. It's a lot easier to get sucked in to a game when your car is at the mechanic and you can't go anywhere, but once you pick up your car and go home, and fire it right back up, well… the first step is admitting you have a problem. The big reason I picked this game up was an awesome sale, and recent changes have completely changed how the game operates, so the part of my brain that loves tearing stuff apart is freaking out trying to figure out all of the nuances of this game. I am SO FAR behind the people who never stopped playing. Level 61 Paladin, and I'm only on Act 2.   We started quiz off with a nice

This Is Not The Best Headline I've Ever Come Up With
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Who ends a sentence with a preposition? What a jerk...   I have taken up rock climbing over the last couple of years, and recently have started transitioning from climbing at a gym to climbing outside, and let me tell you: whoa. Totally different experience. Rock climbing routes have a difficulty rating attached to them, from 5.0 to 5.15. The higher the decimal, the higher the difficulty. I can do 5.10 in the gym all day, and some 5.11, but on a real rock I'm stuck at like 5.8 to 5.9. Also, the ground is always at most 50 feet beneath you in a gym, but outside that 50 feet has a twenty foot slope leading up to the wall, and a 200 foot cliff below that. It's slightly more

Aaand the Humuhumunukunukuapua'a Goes Swimming By!

  Sometimes, I feel like I miss a golden opportunity. In this case, however, I must accept responsibility, since I knew what was coming, and chose not to prepare accordingly. You see, Hawaii is probably my second favorite place in the world, and we had a round all about Hawaiitonight, and I didn't pick a "Hawai'i" song.   I had a thought to make the subject of R1Q7 a spelling question, since it's a) a thing I'm going to get a tattoo of eventually and b) it's really fucking long. I also, while quizzing, wondered how any QMs would have trouble with the word I am about to write:   humuhumunukunukuapua'a    Or,

It's Getting Better All The Time
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

  Have you ever had one of those days where things just went well? Yesterday started out like that, and then fell apart a little in the middle, so Quiz was the highlight of my evening (as it usually is!) Overall, though, it was pretty good! I tore a bunch of tree branches apart and cleared out a backyard, got to hang out with a good buddy, and   Round Three was related to Australia, and oh, what a tenuous connection, but my favorite videogame just got rereleased, like, today, and since a big part (the second of two games) was produced in Australia, I deem it relevant enough to share here. The game is Borderlands, by the way -- the Handsome Collection.

Sometimes It Ain't Pat's Day
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

I guess there's a bunch of controversy surrounding the alleged saint Patrick, and the events leading to the holiday that we celebrate. Let me tell you something: just like language, holidays evolve to be what they need to be, and St Paddy's Day has been a PARTY DAY for a long time. It's no longer about what it was about, because now it's about getting utterly ripped and wearing green shit.   I never party on this day anymore, because holy crap are the hangovers awful. They just get worse the older I get, and last longer. Also, having to figure out what happened last night sucks and is super crappy. I swear, there's a switch in my body for hangovers
