LOST Lonely Boys
James Sterling Pound

Hey there Pinthouse. Thanks for joining us last night. Ol Carlos was off at his other job (stripping [I’m not kidding]) so we had the beautiful Gerald filling in as scorekeeper. I called him Geraldo and he rolled with it! He’s a nice guy y’all. Last night we had current events that didn’t mention the fucking goddamn debates. Twitter and Facebook and the Internet have that covered, let’s just keep leaving it out of quiz, eh? Then we rocked the cradle in Round Two! Those sweet sweet lullaby covers were nice weren’t they? Except Creed. That’s baby abuse. Round Three had you hurriedly naming elements starting with the letter C. Cookie wasn’t

Smorgasbord of Quiz
James Sterling Pound

Hiya Pinthouse peoples. Thanks for joining Carlos and me last night, y’all sure were a swell audience. 30 teams, an uptick, I like it! Nice to have Carlos back to, huh? Even if he was a little sick. I mean Carlos is always a sicko, but last night it as literal! WhoooOOooaaAAAaaaa. We dished up all sorts of quiz delicacies last night. An amuse-bouche of one word answers to tease the brain in round one. Followed by a song soup drained in a sad tone with a “Blurred Lines” reduction to ease the pain. Our salad was a light tossing of Grandpa Simpson and Andy Rooney. Most of you left a lot of this course on your plate. I understand why. Dried prunes aren’t my

No, I Don’t Need The Name Of The Baby From Hangover’s Name
James Sterling Pound

Hiya hiya hiya high in the sky. Sorry, no idea why I quoted that Sugar Ray song just then. Let’s start over. Hey Pinthouse friends! Wonderful to see y’all last night. Ol’ Carlos was off prowling neighborhoods in his unmarked van again, so we had the glorious return of Stephanie as our scorekeeper. Yay Stephanie! We also had a handful of birthdays in the house, so whoop whoop to y’all on your special yesterday!! We started out linking thespians work in Round One. I don’t think anyone wrote FullER House for number (which we would’ve accepted with disgust) and you should be proud of that. Then we cranked up some number one September 13th hits,

My Parents Always Covered My Eyes When Cirque de Soliel Was On
James Sterling Pound

Hola Pinthouse! Thanks for joining us everyone. Yea, Labor can really take it out of you, so I appreciate the effort y’all made to come quiz. We had a chock a block night of September shenanigans to start! In my office a client printed out large wall calendars as a gift to us and they misspelled this month as “Sepember”. So that’s what it’s called now, FYI. We then played y’all some Rick Rubin made tracks. That beardo-weirdo gets around eh? Then we played the classic Sesame Street game, One Of These Things Is Not Like The Other! Some of y’all didn’t recognize a dick pill’s name. I guess that might be a good thing? We also gave

Oh La La
James Sterling Pound

Hi there Pinthousers! Having a good week? I hope so. Mine’s been aight, thanks for asking. Yea, Carlos and I wore matching shirts. We hosted the same Planet of the Apes show at different Alamos right before quiz and decided it was too cute to not do. We’re voting Ape. Deal with it. Last night we gave y’all a run down on the news. Good fucking job on the bonus question already having Colin Kaepernick written out since we didn’t mention him in the round. Don’t do that again. Then we listened to liars sing their lies, filled in our blankity blanks, and made a ton of poop jokes. We shaved it to the grain in Round Five with some badass womens. ‘Member

You Had One Mission Carlos…
James Sterling Pound

Hey hey hey Pinthouse Gang! Thanks so much for joining us last night, what a fun time. Yea, ol Carlos took his terrorist beard down to the Trump rally to stir things up (I hear he couldn’t even stand staying the entire time, but did get in spitting distance of Lord Supreme Ornage himself. Whether he did we’ll have to fin out next week…), so instead we had the wonderful Stephanie in as scorekeeper! And damn if she isn’t awesome! So yea, all that and a quiz? We got Down and Dirty in Round One, fought back singing along to Toto and George Michael the best we could, and figure out some movies form the under the title credits. Y’all know

Vanderpump Does Not Rule
James Sterling Pound

Hi there Pinthouse Pizza fans! Thanks for weathering the weather and joining the revelry last night. MAN, we loaded you guys up on points, huh? Four (4), quatro, F O U R rounds were double the points. Not that that totally mattered for some of you who can’t follow instructions. But it’s cool, you tried. And hey, Jackie Brown was worth two points no matter which way your were intending when you wrote it. So there’s that. Last night’s quiz flipped through TV Guide (is that a thing humans still do?), counted to nine musically, and we learned all the 90s perverts definitely remember Babs Bunny but maybe not Buster. Then Round Four was finger-lickin’ good

Phelps Welts
James Sterling Pound

Hey hey hey Pinthouse! Thanks for pulling yourself away from all the amazing Olympics action joining us last night. I mean hot damn! I’m I wrong or is America killin it this year?! And how bout Phelps Angry Eyes! Sassy! We confused you with round one’s theme, but then you caught on all you had to do is find the rhyming country with the last word of the question. Good work! Round Two switched it up with album naming, OOOooOOO! Next up was things in common. Which some people didn’t really grasp somehow. After I said it after every other question. Sigh. Fourthly we shat on some great (and not great) games, then put Round Five in our sights. Round Six

Knuckles Is The Worst Representation Of An Echidna Of All Time

Heya hey Quizarinos! Sorry, I didn’t mean to call you that. It just came out. Great to see y’all last night!! Hey, ‘member that kitten that stowed away in a car during the rain about a month ago? Well that team that saved it named it after our very own Carlos (and then named their team after naming the cat that), and they’ve decided their keeping him for good meow! I saw video of the lil bugger an she is ridiculously cute. Sneaky little bastard winning over hearts and shit. Glad that tale had a happy ending. Anyways, quizzining! Last night touched on attempted murderers getting released, the BeeGees murdering our eardrums with their falsettos, and the murder

Hotel for Dogs, Or: How I Learned to Still Love Quiz, Even Though We Lost a Pound
Carlos

Sweet. Merciful. Vishnu. You people rock. Forty-two teams. Thanks for being such an amazing crowd and helping out Service Dogs, Inc with their incredible and fluffy mission. Plus, they were cool as hell and gave out stuffed puppies. What the hell else could you ask for in a quiz? I don't know, maybe me hosting and two wonderful QM companions Kavi and Audrey scorekeeping alongside me? Well good call on all that, because you got it. And some people from another job of mine showed up and ended up winning. Coincidence? No, there was a British guy on their team and I'm fairly certain Pub Quiz is in their K-12 curriculum, right after Tea

#PokeMongo
James Sterling Pound

Hey kiddos, how are you? That’s good. Thanks for joining us! Y’all were rowdy and loud and then sweet and quiet at just the right times. A perfect bunch you were. Sorry old man Carlos yelled at you for your Pokemon Going. I get he was just trying to get you to put your phones away after we had taken a break, but still, he was a little harsh. For such a childish man I don’t know why/how he feels so above this latest gaming phenomenon. I mean, HE PLAYS A JAPANESE GAME WHERE YOU PLAY (and collect!) WITH KITTY CATS! So I guess we’re the kids and he’s the crazy cat lady. Anyways, last night we dished up some musical mess ups, Europe’s number one

Diarrhea Cha Cha Cha
James Sterling Pound

Hey kiddos! Great to see you all again after Pinthouse fixed up their flooring and a few other housekeeping things. Place looks better than ever, eh?! And so did y’all, did you get some sun? Have you been working out? Just drinking beer? Well it’s working! Last night we covered some easy peasy stuffs, listened to some godawful music, and went on a search party. Are you excited for the new Ghostbusters? I am! I like all those ladies (and Thor). I honestly don’t get the massive reverence for the original. I mean I liked it but it’s not the most memorable movie for me of any of the leads. Well, except maybe Ernie Hudson, not counting his work in Beverly Hills

Kitty Car
James Sterling Pound

Y’all. Last night at the beginning of quiz a little adorable kitty cat, frightened of the rainy weather, and loud cars of Burnet Road, stowed itself away in someone’s engine block. What the fuck kitty? You all laughed when I made the announcement. And yea, I kinda never imagined saying those words on amid either, “There’s a cat in your engine.” Well damn y’all, after we asked you all the standardized tests questions, all the sexy non-Marvin Gaye songs, Greece/Italy conundrums, cried over Aniston/Vaughn’s “Break-Up”, and laughed at Mel Brooks’ old face. Do NOT succumb to the 2016 celebrity epidemic Mr Brooks! Then we confused

Hallo again Paanthouse fraands! Sorry, I bet you couldn’t understand me because of my perfect French accent. I promise I won’t do eet hanymore. Oops, it slipped. Gang we did a lot of things last night. Mostly drinking, but also quizzing, and in that quizzin’ we talked of dragons (sorta), identified state capitals via song (mostly), and pinned down where most of the billionaires are in the world (the NRA’s pocket?). Oh, Politics, burn! Then we took a lap, napped through a black and white movie, and awoke to our project getting funded! Eat it Braff! That punk better watch his urethra around Carlos.

How Do You Say “Have Mercy” In Cantonese?
James Sterling Pound

Well Pinthouse, it finally happened. After 3 (4?) years of this thing we call quiz at Pinthouse Pizza Burnet, we finally got ourselves an official mascot, Chinese John Stamos. I couldn’t be happier about it. I’ll be honest though, I’m not actually the biggest fan of Stamos himself. Smarmy is the word that comes to mind. I mean Full House? Trite. Grandfathered? Cancelled for a reason. Those Dannon Greek Yogurt ads? Daytime Softcore Pornography. The Beach Boys? Not in their heyday, so fuck off, I mean Kokomo? KOKOMO! More like NONONO. However… the emphatic nature of our new friend and how quickly the crowd was won over by his striking resemblance

“Tort Tort Tort Tort Tort” - Rihanna
James Sterling Pound

Heeey Pinthouse! How’s it goin y’all? SO you y’know how I always warn the bar there’s foul language and material in our quiz at the top of the show? Last night was no different of course. But during Four I had a young man, maybe 6 or 7 years of age, approached me as I read the first question. I saw this out of the corner of my eye, right as I was about to read the final word, “asshole”. I thankfully didn’t follow through on the swear, because he was there to admonish Carlos and I for our potty mouths. As we apologized profusely to him and his parents behind him (who couldn’t contain their giggles), the young man began to well up with tears of
