Batman stars as BATMAN!
James Sterling Pound

Hi there Pinthouse! Good times last night. Well, it started out a bit awkward for me, as it seems I had been replaced with a wine cooler/dispenser. But we QMs are adaptive, so believe or not I made it through the whole quiz standing BESIDE the cooler! Yea, I am sad I don’t have a little soapbox to stand on anymore. Maybe I’ll ask for one for my birthday next month. They still make soapboxes right? Anywho, Carlos was out and Michael was IN! He’s a newbie to the GWD fold and didn’t a hangup job grading a bazillion scoresheets. Honestly I don’t know how Carlos even keeps up every week. Well, quiz stuffs, what was it? Round One started

You Try And Say Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte After A Few Beers
James Sterling Pound

Hi Pinthouse! Hot damn y’all! I think we broke a new record of attendance if I’m not mistaken! Excluding special fundraising events at PHP, this regular quiz had 38 teams total! Pretty sure that’s more than 36, our previous high. So that’s pretty cool. Also there were five QMs under that one roof, so that’s neat (shout outs to regulars Patrick and Gerald and Wacoian visitor Faith, good to see all y’all). Anyways, we quizzed and stuff. First Round tools us through today’s news. Y’know just once I’d like to have a round on the news of 1983’s July, or what about 1883, fuck it 1783 you guys! Let’s talk

Thomas Jefferson’s Campaign Song Was Pass The Dutchie
James Sterling Pound

P to I to NTHOUSE! How you fools doin'?! Good times this week. We learned Carlos keeps a comb in pocket at all times. We also learned my mouth doesn’t say words well when I’m exhausted and drinking. But that’s okay. French words aren’t my forte even if not inebriated. Cess La Vee! So Round One was fun/easy adding up some celeb names. I still stand by my Borat Hannibal joke even if it didn’t get any laughs or actually makes any sense. Don’t care! Round Two was all the Feels, and actually were all pretty solid song selections. Round Three’s 50/50 shot was still a toughy. Sometimes flipping a coin for your answer ain’t the way to go.

And Here I Thought Canadians Were Well Mannered
James Sterling Pound

Pinthouse peoples! How ya doin? Glad to see y’all kept all your fingers intact from this weekend and no one shot any fireworks off their noggin. You need that for quizzin. Which we totally did! Last night we started out with the better half, and learned that not all Canadians are polite. Well, she didn’t know the rules apparently and just blurted out that hockey team. Her Canadian guilt overwhelmed her and she turned as red as her country’s flag, so I took it easy on her. But don’t go expecting that all the time ya rowdy ‘Mericans. Round Two celebrated Ringo Starr’s birthday by mercifully not playing any of his music. Round Three got us in the

Chamillionaire At The Lapin Agile
James Sterling Pound

Hey Pinthouse gang! What a fun night! Team USA won another footy ball match right before starting our heated game so everyone was in good spirits to begin with. Another awesome turn out and collection of peoples. In front of me sat one of my favorite new players. It was a duo, guy and girl, and he was deaf and she was interpreting for him. Have you guys ever had someone doing sign language interpretation of what you were saying directly in front of you? It’s pretty awesome. I made her sign poop NUMEROUS times. But y’know, not without reason, we had a round themed on it. Of course… I probably would’ve said it a bunch anyways. An added benefit was they were never yelling

Put Your Money Where Your Quiz Is
James Sterling Pound

Pinthouse!!!! You guys are amazing. Last night was so much fun and the positive vibes were (mostly) high everywhere you looked! Forty Two (42!), like four with a two after it. That’s how many friggin teams we had last night!! Insanity. We totally crushed our previous team count record! Thank you so much for coming out. Not only that, we were there to Quiz For A Cause! That cause being Room To Read’s Nepal Education Fund, and I couldn’t have been happier to be a part of raising funds with Sarah, Dixie, and their crew. And boy did you guys give! I don’t have a solid quote on how much they

Inaugurial… Inagriral?… Inaugrail?… I give up.
James Sterling Pound

Hey kiddos! Great to see y’all. Brave mofo’s facing down the torrential rain from Bill, oh wait that didn’t happen what so ever. At least at quiz time. You’re still brave to face down the mighty quiz, so ya still got that join for ya. Which is nice.   Last night we carted you away with round one, got baking powder fresh in Round Two with those Arm and Hammer songs (none of which were Tony Braxton. Not even Toni Braxton is Tony Braxton.), and Round Three was full of shit art. Both real and not. Round Four was weird but cool. I like hearing from character’s perspectives outside of the actual movie dialogue. Skywalker sounded pretty peeved about

Like Porn, But In Sweden
James Sterling Pound

Pern, that is. Oh Hey, Pinthouse good to see y’all again! Glad to reunite with Haircut Carlos, too! Been awhile since this ambiguously something duo has been together. Yay! We had some delicious quiz and thought provoking pizza and bladder filling beer. What a lovely quiz. Round One got your whites whiter, but not Roman urine and goat milk teeth bleached teeth white, but who can go to that much trouble? And I’d think the vomit would undo any progress, right? Round Two referenced the quality car manufacturer Chevrolet in it’s songs and artists. This doesn’t however mean the music was quality. Far from it in fact, with the inclusion of Sum 41, Wheatus (Doug

That’s a great album, Magna Carta
James Sterling Pound

Hey Pinthouse, glad to see ya again! Sorry bout last week. Carlos was left a bit huh and dry. Don’t think he was too butt hurt. He was gone this week on short notice too, something about emergency nip clamp removal recovery or some such. I’m sure he’ll be back next y’all. But we did have the most wonderful and dancey Pax as our scorekeeper for the night, and she rocked that shit! Oh what a quiz though. What a lovely quiz! Round One, the man inside me, err, the answers. Yea, man was in the answers. Round Two, the round where no one could fight the urge to sing Backstreet Boys and one gal got super pumped she remembered Toad The Wet Sproket.

Pretty Sure You Already Owned That Ball Gag
James Sterling Pound

Hey kiddos! Bitch Carlos and I had a great time with y’all tonight! Indeed, that ball gag in Carlos’ mouth earned him his new nickname. He told me he got it to get a good picture on the Alamo South Lamar’s Mad Max car. Which, okay, sure I guess. But I’d put my money down that Carlos already owned that hardware before the movie. Bitch Carlos knows his place in the world y’all. Aaaaanyways. Quiz consisted of BBs, Love commandments, speedy tree

One size fits goes on most! Get em while they're as hot as your meal! Lovely em effin quizzers! What a beautiful crowd we had again- thirty four teams at the bewilderingly attractive quiz that is Pinthouse Pizza on a Tuesday night. Anybody get towed? Booted? I think it's time we form a posse to rebel against shitty, authoritative parking policies and start taking tow truck drivers hostage matters into our own hands. Let's recap our quiz!

Tweets From Beyond The Grave
James Sterling Pound

  Hiya hi Pinthouseteers! Great to see you lot again. Carlos and I had fun quizzing and hassling you, so y’know, let’s talk about it! We started the evening with coin questions. I recently did a film shoot with the former head of th US Mint that was in charge of the agency during the 50 State Quarters era. He told us that was the most collected collectible of all time. Of all time! Like more collectible than the wheel apparently! He also let me hold a gold coin worth $1,200. Cool guy. Maybe a bit foolish to hand me something like that, but cool guy. We then listened to more

Puppet Drumming Will Give Ya Such A Crick In The Neck
James Sterling Pound

Hey hey hey Pinthouse!! It’s been so long! Daddy missed you, yes. I was so happy to return, I’ve truly missed you guys. Sorry my day job has been pulling me away the past few weeks, but reuniting feels so good. Let’s run down this week’s quiz, eh?We started with a simplified Edison quiz that still dumbfounded some of you. No, prunes do not turn into Craisens if you dry them. Second Round celebrated Jay Leno’s inability to leave well enough alone in song form which led to sing alongs of BSB and Timon & Pumba (aka The Tokens) later in the night. Round Three was our take on some Price Is Right action, where you told us the over/under on camping gear and

Carlos

We're baaaaaaaack in the 30s agaaaain! Felt good to have that many teams tearing it up, Pinthouse! It made my jalapeno Hawaiian pizza that much more enjoyable. What's that, you say? No pineapple is allowed on pizza? You're as wrong as the guy who said the Unabomber was Timothy McVeigh. Yes, I somehow related the deliciousness of pizza to terrorism. Big ups to Kim for scorekeeping while James was out getting that penile implant re-inflated. Let's recap! We started out with our triple-hinted two-syllable answer round; a warm-up of sorts (but still not as easy as your visual round). Then we moved into an even easier music

Previously, On Carlos Gives Away Beer For Questions...
Carlos

Sometimes you're the pizza, sometimes you're the oven. I don't know what that phrase means, but an old man told it to me and I'm just going to have to assume he was wise and cryptic, not just a train-hopping vagabond. It seems we had a nice little bump in our population, good quizzers of Pinthouse! Glad to see you're all telling your friends about this place and making it all jazzed up with other sexy teams full of people named Doug. The wonderful QM (and expert marathon driver) Gerald kept score for you, and it seems you were particularly nice to him- not that you're ever mean to me, but it's good you didn't get on his bad side. He will Hulk smash the shit out of you. We
