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

Oooh, I'm So Close To Finishing!
JeffreyTanguay

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! A few weeks ago I lost my iPod during a drunken shitshow of a party, but it's back! My friend who threw the party found it stuck in his couch! I have my music back! It is quite

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'm Feeling Right Cruddy, Buddy!
JeffreyTanguay

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 was sort of worried about quiz not going smoothly but I think everything turned out fine.    Turns out last night we had the

JeffreyTanguay

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. On certain days of the week. If the tide is high. And it's sunny. and Venus is in it's prime… It's fine. When it comes to instruments, I think I'd rather be

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.

There Are Always Two: A Master and an Apprentice

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,

My Baby Takes The Morning Train, Because She Is Slightly Insane
JeffreyTanguay

I'm not a morning person. Never really have been. I've always been a fan of staying up and sleeping in, and that paradigm has pretty much been cemented after like 5 years of working closing shifts pretty much always. Then you look at my friends, who work daytime jobs. They'll be up as early as 5 am, doing stuff during the daytime, being all "normal" and such. The reason I bring this up is because it can be interesting setting up an activity like hiking, since our schedules have totally different repercussions. I usually aim for about 9am, since I have to wake up a bit early (and lose sleep!), and most likely was up pretty late the night before, but my buddy pushes it forward to 8 because

Can We Forget How Old I Am?
JeffreyTanguay

There is a song that I keep hearing on the radio. Normally I stick to the metal and hard rock stations, but I branched out to the indie/alt stations a few months ago and there is this one song that I can't help but identify with, and it trips me out. Not just because I really get the material, but because it's super relaxed and fun to listen to. It's that type of song that I'd really like to hear at a party, but parties these days are few and far apart. Hence the song being so goddamn relevant. Like, right now, I could go out, but after I've been home it just feels like a bunch of extra work for no pay out. Nothing good happens past 2 am.   SUDDEN TRANSITION:

A Means To An End
JeffreyTanguay

I picked up a nectar collector this week. For those unaware, a nectar collector is a device used for the purpose of imbibing cannabis extracts; or rather, something to get (really) high with. It's pretty much a portable dab rig. I decided that it was time to pick up a rig since flower tends to make my room smell a stoner's lair. To be fair, I AM a stoner; I like being high so much that what it takes to get me there would literally floor an average or new user. Tolerance is a hell of a thing! Anyways, I bring this up because after shopping around I have found that even when getting ripped you have a range for any accessory or product you can think of!

It Was Hard, But They Took It Well!
JeffreyTanguay

A while ago, I challenged one of my friends. You see, we both enjoy reading, but I have an advantage over him in terms of my speed and comprehension. That being said, and hardly wishing to toot my own horn, I suggested a trade of sorts wherein he reads one of my suggestions and I read two of his, so that we can both begin to understand the other a bit better. I suggested he read It, a long story by Stephen King; in exchange, I would read Anathem and Blood Meridian. I will be honest; I have barely begun reading Blood Meridian, because I am accustomed to an entirely different (and admittedly more accessible) style of prose. It daunts me. Also, Anathem is

Everything's Coming Up Purple
JeffreyTanguay

    What a week! It was pretty crazy seeing the internet freak out about Prince passing away. I have to be honest, I never really got into his work, but I definitely respected him as an artist after seeing him shred on guitar a few times. The first time I saw a video of it I realized that this dude takes to guitar like a fish takes to water. I mean, I had seen Clapton play and stuff like that, but Prince truly owned playing guitar like it was an afterthought. I read a passage a while ago in The Wise Man's Fear where the main character plays a joke on the audience during a performance, by making an easy song look tough, and a tough song look easy.

I'm Addicted To Speed
JeffreyTanguay

I mentioned it last week, but I have taken on the pinnacle of auto based competition: TRACKMANIA! This is an auto racing videogame that is all about speed and precision, and racing the clock. Each track takes less than thirty seconds to complete on average, IF you are good enough to not mess up; otherwise sometimes a track can take an hour and massive amounts of frustration. Did I mention the average speed is generally "speederbike"? My old roommate and I have been in a massive contest for a few days, where one of us will beat a track, and then the other will beat his time. And then gloat. While I've been at quiz, I got three notifications about getting my time beat. dammit. I gotta get faster.   Really

JeffreyTanguay

    An 8-bit audio round always makes me happy! there's something so comforting about the fuzzy goodness created by synthesizers; I'm pretty sure growing up with a NES inspired my love for chiptune remixes of popular songs. You know, I have a completely 8-bit recreation of Pink Floyd's Dark Side Of The Moon. It's the whole thing; Side 1 and Side 2. It's not exactly perfect, because vocals are usually the first thing to suffer or disappear in a chip remix, but it's still pretty awesome!    A slightly smaller quiz last night in terms of teams, since we had two teams with 7 or 8 people that would normally split up.
