The Battle Between Wood And Weevil
JeffreyTanguay

I got a bribe photo. Look, guys. You can attempt to bribe me for a higher score, and depending on your offer, I may just accept. That's how bribery works. Or, there is the [more likely] possibility that I'm just saying that, and if you offer me a bribe, I'll take it. I may not deliver on your expected outcome -- you should have known that bribes are not foolproof! You might just be taken advantage of! I am an honorable person, I just like free stuff, and how are you going to make me feel guilty, you criminal? This is fair warning, in any case. I bring it up, because one of my teams tried to get some extra points by drawring me a picture. (It's over on

So I Just Found Out About The League (Of Rockets)
JeffreyTanguay

I'm a geek. I'm a nerd. Ok, whatever. I like to play videogames, but after thirty years I kind of know what I like, and what I don't. I'm not a huge fan of sports -- I know how most of them work, but following the minutiae of what teams are up to, what players are up to, etc is generally boring and overwhelming to me. As a result, I'm not really a huge fan of sports games (I have played them, but I never, ever, buy them for myself), so when my roommate shows up with a new PS4 and says "check out this new soccer game" of course I sigh, because, well, sports. On the one hand, it's soccer, which I played for ten years, and, even though watching it doesn't do much for me I enjoy the game.   Well,

Just A Benign Case Of Foot In Mouth
JeffreyTanguay

High school was definitely a thing that happened, and like everyone else, I'm sure there were good times, and not so good times, because high school, is, well… high school. You are there to learn, ostensibly what the district would like, but there are so many other little lessons to learn, and these are the kind of things that your teacher did not intentionally think of. For example, one time, we were taking a test, and one of the students had a question about one of the questions. My teacher, attempting to clarify said question, accidentally gave everyone in the class the answer to said question. That day, I learned that sometimes, it's possible to let important information slip

Pain Is Transient, Glory Is Forever!
JeffreyTanguay

I pinched a nerve in my back yesterday, just sitting around playing video games. HOW!? Guess I'm getting old. So, as soon as I'm done writing I'm going to take a painkiller and play "Don't Move Your Head" for a while.   We had a new style of Round 3 last night, and it was pretty fun! I like the atypical Round 3 formats, because they tend to be game changers and can lead to some serious scoring shakeups. An extra double point opportunity, for free?! Count me in! I especially liked this particular format, because it offers a compromise for the risk-averse, meaning that the teams that go all in on a question are in it to win it, but you can still play it safe if

Alone On The Wall, Or How I Caused A Predicament
JeffreyTanguay

Regular readers of this blog may be aware that one of my hobbies is rock climbing. I really enjoy it, and have started climbing outdoors this year, ad I have to say, it is definitely much different from the gym. I have a short story about my climbing experience today. I hope you enjoy it.   So I went to a place in Clear Creek Canyon with my roommate, and took on a route that I tried last week for the first time. It's a 5.8, very slabby, with some outcroppings and an overhang at the top. Last time I tried this route, I clipped into the penultimate bolt below the anchor. This bolt was below the overhang, and the next one is above. Well, while I was attempting

This Just Happens To Be The Blog Title
JeffreyTanguay

Shortly before quiz began, I noticed a subtle yet dramatic reorganization of seats to create two teams, one composed entirely of males, and the other team… well, the other team was females. A veritable Battle Of The Sexes, albeit on a smaller scale. The two teams involved were Rogues Do It From Behind and Suck My Clit, for those who care about the outcome.   My favorite round tonight was the one comparing Kanye quotes to those of Mayor Adam West from Family Guy. Adam West is one of my favorite characters on the show, because his lines are apropos of nothing, and also because it's actually Adam West doing the voices, not just an impersonation. One of the

There Is Nothing Good ABout Dragonball Z (Sez My Knee)
JeffreyTanguay

So, those of you who read this are aware that I have been in California for the last week, attending the San Diego Comic Con. I had never been to any convention like this before, and it was super fun! I had a chance to see some celebrities, try some new games, watch cosplayers do their thing, and, above and beyond everything else, wait in line.   Seriously: I think every single thing offered at any convention like this is overshadowed by the fact that to enjoy it, you will need to wait in line. That's probably why it's five days long! Anyways, over the last week, I managed to lose my phone and find it again (protip: enable Find My iPhone, and learn Spanish!),

On The Road To Comic-Con (In 10 Minutes)
JeffreyTanguay

  As I write this, I am mentally preparing for a week of mad fun, little sleep, and much cost. I am taking a short vacation form reality to immerse myself in the SAN DIEGO COMIC CON! (aka the biggest convention in the nation at the moment). I have never been to any comic convention ever. The closest I've been is that car show I talked about last week.   In any case, I'm freaking out because I have never been to anything like this before. I fully expect it's going to be insanely expensive, but insanely fun. As I am about to commence an all night driving session, I'm going to wrap it up really fast.    Bashin'

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.

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

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

   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

     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 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

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
