I Still Feel Like Pendejo Is Another Way of Saying Cowboy
Nick Danger

Oh man, y’all. Last night’s quiz started off already cranked to eleven but let me tell you, when round two hit? There was no containing the fury of the woo (wu?). Also, my quizzers apparently have some sort of hive mind bullshit going on. Several times throughout the night I noticed more than a couple teams put down not only the wrong answer, but the same wrong answer. Wavelengths, yo! Props to the smartasses who showed their work on round six, question four. I didn’t award any extra points for it, but do feel free to pat yourselves on the back. I feel like I always learn something new at these quizzes, and this one was no exception. I, for one, had no idea that Madonna had

Here Is Something You Can't Understand, How Aaron Burr Can Straight Kill A Man
Nick Danger

In keeping with the recent trend, last night’s quiz was a tough one. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more merciless round one. In my experience that first set of questions usually glides in nice and sweet, like a gentle summer breeze. This week, round one bored everyone a huge new hole like a hammerhead-shark-shaped-dick. Seriously, who the fuck is Kaley Cuoco?   Inherent difficulty aside, the quiz was still a ginormous amount of fun. Only one team figured out the quiz’s theme before the end, but they had it from the get-go.  And when that last question of round eight rolled around? Hooooooo boy. They went apeshit. And speaking

The Politicians May Be Dirty, But The Water Is...Ok, It's Also Dirty
Nick Danger

First off let me say any quiz featuring Bill Pullman is a good quiz. Prince Lonestar owns my heart, now and forever. More secondly, last night’s quiz was a barn burner of a white-knuckle thrillride like no other. Fun fact: Banging your head against a wall burns up one hundred fifty calories per hour.  Another fun fact: at any given point last night, the top three teams were within a scant three points of each other. Scott’s Tots (quite predictably) wrecked this quiz like it was a brand new Porsche 911 and they were Drunk Ryan Dunn, but every time I tallied the score, second place was nipping at their flaming heels like the grim reaper himself. Most thirdlyest,

You Might Not Think He's Prime Minister, But It's Trudeau
Nick Danger

Another Wednesday night brought us another great quiz at Devil’s Advocate. Beginning the night with a tight flight of rhymes was more than all right. Quite the welcome sight. This was of course offset by the unfortunate reminder that P.O.D. was, in fact, actually a thing in the early 2000’s. Thanks for that. Speaking of unfortunate, could we please just all agree to give Leo DiCaprio a damned Oscar already? He tries so, so hard you guys. If I have to, I’ll write my own screenplay for him to star in. I can see it now: set in a small town in Canada, a psychological thriller about a whole bunch of uglies that need bumpin’. I’ma call it Crotch Lake, and it is gonna

Cockchafer Was the Real 5th Beatle
Nick Danger

Wow, last night’s quiz really brought the geeks to the yard! With 20 teams in the field, it was quite the competitive event. Looking out over the sea of fresh, spectacle-bedecked faces, I felt a sense of pride…and I knew I couldn’t bring these people just any old pub quiz. That, of course, didn’t stop me from reading the questions as I would any other night…BUT! Luckily for me, this week’s quiz was tougher than Jaws’s orthodontist. And I mean Jaws like the Bond villain from Moonraker, not the animatronic, sometimes 3D shark. I was actually approached by several regulars about the difficulty of the questions, but alas! We are all at the mercy of the

Matthew McConaughey Loves Outkast
Nick Danger

Welp, the ASU students are officially back from Christmas break. Last night’s quiz was nice and packed, and it was a doozy! There were some real ball busters this time around, round 7 being particularly brütal. So brütal in fact that I decided to write brütal like a metalhead would write it. Which is more brütal, in my opinion. I was pleasantly surprised to see a lot of fresh faces this week. Nice. I also had a trainee under my wing last night, which was quite fun as well. Her name was Tara and she got to jump in and read round 4 for us, to much aplomb. I hope my regulars didn’t scare her off. Seriously, you guys can be animals sometimes.   As

The Year in Blog (2015)
Nick Danger

Ahh, 2015. There were good times and there were bad times, hard times and…soft times, I guess? I don’t know what the other side of that idiom is. Moving on. This year has been a goddamned whirlwind for me. I’ve gone through jobs, bands, and relationships to wind up in a place that I never would have dreamt I’d be in a year ago. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t all bad. I became a full-fledged quizmaster this year! I’ll drink to that! So, it is with a light heart and a full glass that I sit down here tonight to ring in the new year with a blog post, as is tradition. Here we go!   I knew it was gonna be a good quiz last night from

Embracing the Holidays With Arms Wide Open
Nick Danger

Another Wednesday, another great quiz! Last night proved quite festive as we were in direct loudness competition with some office’s company Christmas party and I’ll have you know we won. Their megaphone was just no competition for my sound system and obnoxious quizmaster screeching. I gets loud, son.   The actual quiz itself ran pretty smooth, with lots of fun Christmas puns and festive chatter. Nemo is a Punk Ass Bitch realized pretty early on that they wouldn’t be bringing home the gold on this one and soon started just filling their answer sheets with fun quips and some nice drawings I dare not show to polite company.

In Which Apologetix Became My New Favorite Band
Nick Danger

With Christmas just a little over a week away, Devil’s Advocate took on a festive air last night. There was magic in the smiles of the quizzers, and a twinkle in the eyes of the servers, and…oh all right. To be perfectly honest it was business as usual, though Devil’s Advocate DID go all out with the decorating and junk. It looked fresh to death in there, and with all the ASU kids out of town for the holidays it was quite cozy indeed. Did I mention they’ve got a real fireplace up in that bitch? Side note: feel free to take a quick break from this blog if you need to maybe go pick up some peanut butter and bread to go with all the jelly you’re experiencing

The Real Joke Is Donald Trump
Nick Danger

Joke time. So, some young, high-school-aged dweeb, seeing that the big high school dance is coming up in about a week, works up the courage to ask a young, high-school-aged, equally dweeby girl to the dance. After much posturing and pondering she finally gives way and agrees to be his date. Overwhelmed with elation, he runs home and tells his parents all about it but they soon dash his dreams like a smartcar in a demolition derby by informing him of all the preparations he must make to ensure a pleasant date and a happy ending. To our story that is, get your mind out of the gutter. Anyways, the young dweeb is unfazed by this and proceeds upon his mission with more determination than ever.

Greetings From the Top of the Food Chain
Nick Danger

Y’know, I’ve seen some one-sided fights in my day (I’ve been in a few of them myself), but tonight’s quiz was brutal. The Guild of Calamitous Intent came out swinging and they did not relent once. It was like watching Steve Austin wrestle a middle schooler in a no-holds-barred ladder match. They crushed the opposition, a beer in one hand and nothing but an erect middle finger in the other. You ever watch those nature documentaries where a pack of apex predators takes down a gazelle or some other dumb animal like a furry Navy seal team? It was like that. They beat the rest of the teams like the red-headed stepchildren of Ron Weasley. I

In Which There Was Premature Christmas Celebration
Nick Danger

As I sit here at my desk, belt unbuckled, brow sweaty, a belly full of the flesh of defeated wild fowl, I can’t help but ponder the many things I’m thankful for this year…but you don’t want to hear about that floofy horseshit. Let’s talk some quiz!   The ranks of this week’s teams were thinned with the attrition of Thanksgiving preparations, with team Gina Doc having to leave mid-quiz to go bake some pies. That’s some hardcore dedication to the crafting of noms, right there. Nevertheless, a damn good time was had by all who attended, despite Jimmy Fallon’s attempts to ruin everything. There was,

I Did It All For the Wookie
Nick Danger

Last night’s quiz was a fun affair, full of treachery, debauchery, and chicken tenders. Let me explain. Right off the beginning I had to pull out my trusty TeamSplitter to separate out a few overloaded tables into groups a little more mindful of our six member maximum. I’ll proudly mention it was accomplished with as little bloodshed as I could manage. That TeamSplitter’s got some teeth, let me tell ya. So anyways, that’s when the name calling began. Let me just say that if even a tenth of the things these score pads say about my mother are true, I’m gonna have to sit her down for a long, hard talk about what she’s doing to the Danger family name. Highly

In Which There Was Creepypasta About Santa Claus
Nick Danger

Last night’s quiz was a wild one! Crazy questions brought out crazy quizzers and with much shouting of profanity and flinging of vitriol, I feel like we all had a good time. Completely unrelated side note: When it comes to the upcoming Star Wars quiz (December 12th at Devil’s Advocate, don’t miss it!), let me say this. MAN, y’all are ready to talk some real mad scat! You have no idea. I have specifically requested NOT to host it, just so I can sweep down from the heavens and massacre you wholesale not unlike some sort of vengeful, ancient god of death. I know a lot about Star Wars, is what I’m saying. More than you, anyways. Moving on.   The

It Was a Dark and Stormy Night...
Nick Danger

A biblical torrent of rain ushered me in to Devil’s Advocate last night, as I let loose an involuntary shiver from the unexpected chill. “Arizona’s not supposed to be like this! Not like this at all!” I thought to myself, making the various signs to ward off what could only be the work of the forces of evil. “Dude, you ok?” the bartender queried as he poured a beer for another patron, a look of concern playing across his features. I prepared to wave him off with some platitude or other but that was when I realized I had been muttering, nay!, babbling to myself since I walked in. I wrung out my overcoat as I feverishly sought out some explanation for my apparent
