Would Joyce Be Into A Dog Farting On Him?
James Sterling Pound

Hey Pinthouse posse, thanks for joining us yet again. Hey, you gave me another shot after last week’s ridiculousness! You guys! Thank goodness there wasn’t any decades rounds this week, huh? What we did have was the very silly (or very on the nose) translation of our states’ names. To bad we didn’t do cities and cover San Diego, right? Everybody knows what that stands for. Then we mashed some songs together join Round Two, and you did not like it. Well, I think you like the songs themselves, but naming the artists was preeeeetty challenging for some of you. But I don’t think any wrote the song titles as answers, so that’s good. Listening! Then

What Does It Take For A Guy To Get Slapped Around Here?!
James Sterling Pound

Hey gang, great to see y’all last night! Damn what a quiz that was! Tough as shit, eh? That Round Eight was a motherfucker. I’d say average scores were about a 5? Jesus. SO okay. Yea I fucked up last night, let’s get that outta the way. I’m so so so sorry I misled you in Round Seven by saying there were no decades repeated, when in fact there were two (2) T W O decades repeated (I will say, some smartypantses either turned it earlier than when I stressed that or just ignored me altogether and did a pretty good job on the round after all). We thought we could just add some points to everybody’s scores, but that was about as effective as Ferris putting

Barenaked Shame
James Sterling Pound

Hola mi compadres! Hows it going? Great to hear. Did you see that crazy thing the internet won’t shut up about? Of course you did, that’s what all of your team names were based on. Hilarious. Names to stand the test of time. Hey, I got a puppy. No one was talking about that. Except for my girlfriend. I get a picture of the latest cute thing he’s done about every three hours. It’s amazing. He is the cutest thing ever. We love him. He’ll come visit Pinthouse someday. Then you’ll believe me. Anyways, last night there was royalty, Jonas Bros, The (Original) Spice Girls, and not a lotta time between Kublai Khaaaaaaan and “Dante meets Satan”.

Audhumla, Meet Frau Blucher
James Sterling Pound

Helloooo Pinthouse people! Great to see ya last night gang. Miss Becca had to sit last night out so we were graced by the presence of the lovely and wonderful Rev. Lindsay! Only colorfully haired scorekeepers for me, okay?! And oh what a quiz we had for you all! We gave you a Reddit AMA from beyond the grave and took pot shots at Lin-Manuel Miranda that Lindsay was NOT having. Then we brought back our old friend Barry ‘Bama to “sing” us some jams in round two. He got a little pitchy in his Arianna Grande cover, so I can see why he lost the latest election. Then we flipped a coin for answers in Round Three’s birthday peoples. Lil Arianna popped up again

Elmo is At Least On The Spectrum, Okay
James Sterling Pound

Hello Geekalites! Great to see you sillys again, even you Doug. What a beautiful evening of quizzing we had last night! Great weather, beautiful pizza, eye-popping beers, just delightful. And the points! Oh the many many points we awarded you last night! Our finger are cramping from all the check marks. e walked y’all through some current events to start, and checked in on your Happiness Report. Better than Spain, and that ain’t bad! Round Two had a liar in their midst. Yep, Stairway To Heaven wasn’t the best song of its year, it’s just the best song of all time. So that’s okay. Round Three offered you up double points as well but you had the choice

Everyone Loves Shakespeare In Love
James Sterling Pound

Well heya Pinthouse! Damn, it feels like it’s been a year since I’ve seen your cute little faces. Two weeks to be more accurate, but damn, I actually missed you. Weird. I was off working SXSW for my day job. Y’know hanging out with Maisie Williams, T.I., Buzz Aldrin, Rachel Ray, Seth Rogen, Garth Brooks, James Franco, Tommy Wiseau, and Joe Fuckin Biden, no biggie. But seriously, I was in close proximity to all of those folks. It was a wild couple of weeks. Also go see Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver (I know the title is awful) when it comes out, trust me. You’ll love it. Enough Starfuckery, Last night we had ants inner pants, and our round one. Then we

YOU'RE NOT JAMES.
Rebecca

That's right. I'm not. I'm Becca, and I ran your quiz last night with the one and only Chelsea Wright--my PiC, my bae, my bestie. We had fun, I drank wine, I got to visit with my friends Kavi and Spencer, I drank wine, I read all the rounds flawlessly and with unbridled wit, and I drank wine. The energy last night was awesome. There was some sort of magic in the air. Maybe it had to do with the fact that it was Pi Day. Does weird shit often happen on Pi Day? How old is Pi Day? Let's find out. According to Wikipedia: "The earliest known official or large-scale celebration of Pi Day was organized by Larry Shaw in 1988 at the San Francisco Exploratorium,[6] where Shaw

Bryan (also named Bort)

QM James and Rebecca were gone this week, so QM Gerald and I decided we need to show em how it’s done. What a quiz it was, my friends. We started with a round on Alt-ernative Facts. A couple teams learned that you probably shouldn’t try sweetening things with salt. Bad idea. Round Two gave us Thom Yorke(?) covering popular songs. I would listen to that cover of Let it Go

Sookie and Cookie; Tru Empire
James Sterling Pound

Hi there Pinthouse gang! Good to see you all once again. Becca was back in action, the beer was cold and delicious, and the quiz was white hot. Damn son. We gave you the news up front. Did you see when Suicide Squad won an Oscar this Sunday? That was so bad ass. You know what garbage movies didn’t get an Oscar? The Shining, Vertigo, and Citizen Kane. SS is sooo much better! Then we struck up the band and listened to a bunch of surprisingly great marching band covers. How bout those drum fills in the Get Lucky cover?! Then we went to the movies by way of going down the rabbit hole of Google Translator a few times. You guys sure waded your way through the gobbledy-gook and

What Literary Device Is A Lebowski?
James Sterling Pound

Hi there Pinthousateers! Thanks for joining us last night! I know WE had a good time, no matter how quiet you guys might been. Yep, last night had very special guest Scorkeeper/Quiz Writer/Bostonian that’s actually from Maryland but wears a Boston hat so everyone makes assumptions, Jonpaul! He’s a great guy, y’all, I hope you said bon jour. Last night was a doozie of a quiz IMO. I don’t know if you noticed but all the round themes last night were Best Picture Winner titles. We have fun. But round one wasn’t about Italian Stallion boxers, but rather geology! It was indeed a bit of a Rocky start for some of you, HAHA! Then we let the ladies have a chance

Kenny G and Milk Cream
Jessica

Well that was interesting.  There was some dead air in the middle of quiz, let me explain. Santa gave us a Google home speaker for Christmas.  That speaker is linked to my Spotify account.  Apparently while we were playing quiz and enjoying each other my Canadian was home alone on Valentine’s Day and did what every Canadian alone on Valentine’s Day does… He started listening to Kenny G.                My favorite question last night was the bullet train vs tornado question… which one is faster?  Without giving anything away I did some of the math and if we had that bullet

I Saw Richard Simmons Riding A Turkey Once
James Sterling Pound

Heya hey Pinthouse family! Thanks for joining us last night, y’all were wonderful! Especially that couple at the bar and the table with a too big team that loved all my stupid ass jokes. You guys are welcome back any time. Maybe to the detriment of everyone else, but right on cheering my puke noises while saying CarrieAnne Con-bleeeegghway. Thanks. A Grand way to kick things off in Round One with the Grand Ole Opery and Ariana Grande (ne Venti). Secondly, our songs grew and grew, word by word. Is De do do do, De da da da really words? Certainly baby talk. Then Round Three confused the fuck out of some people by saying all the answers were numbers. Someone thought Captain

Well hello, Pinthouse. Great tos ee y’all. Beyonce is gonna have two more babies. So that’s good news. Elsewhere, Becca was back, YAY! I was drunk, YAY! Pizza is delicious, YAY! We started off spoiling the shit out books/movies you shoulda seen by now. Y’all killed it. HaHA! Then we sllooooooooowwwwed it doooooooownnnn in Round Two. I friggin loved it. That Britney Spears Toxic sounded amazing, right? Play that at my funeral. Then Round Three was all about the Ian McKellan classic from 1998, Gods and Monsters. Y’know, the British-American drama film that recounts the last days of the life of troubled film director James Whale, whose experience of war in

Alternative Team Names
James Sterling Pound

Hey Pinthouse! Wow you keep impressing us! 36 teams this week! I love it. Thank you so much. Decca was out this week so Bryan was in. Poor feller didn’t expect to be grading THAT many scoresheets. But he did great! Our quiz went over our current events of the world, getting the most depressing news out of the way first and ended with the amazing Women’s March. Then Round Two tested your will not to sing along as someone made a playlist of a happy ending evening. Round Three was the most Austin Round I think I’ve ever seen, McConaughey, Willie, or a Cow? Man your wrong answers on that one gave me life! Then Round for was Just Kidding! Especially because it didn’t

If We Listen To Each Other’s Hearts….
James Sterling Pound

Hey there Pinthouse! Holy Moly was it raining like CRAZY when we were starting quiz last night, and yet, y’all gave ZERO fucks. 32 damn teams?! What?! I love y’all’s commitment to Sparkle Motion! Last night was many things, but it wasn’t about thongs (sadly). Of course some dope asking me how thongs tied into any of the answers spurred me to play that Sisqo classic, so you’re welcome. We also listened to some horrendous covers. I loved the forehead slapping when the real Trap Queen dropped. Then we listed out foods, and some people fucked up the pizza question. IN A PIZZA PLACE. Look around sometime y’all. Round Four had me recommending some

Beep Beep, Beep Beep, Yea!
James Sterling Pound

Hiya hi Pinthouse! How y’all doing? Goddamn my day was crazy. I spent the entire day locking down a replacement car. Yup a month of paying for a rental and I finally got myself a new whip. A 2013 Ford Escapé (that’s how I’m pronouncing it) with only 14k miles on it for… a very nice price. What I’m trying to say is I’m sorry for running late and check out CarMax when you’re in the market. Aaaaanyways, that has nothing to do with what we did together, but it’s a lot more happy than my other bullshit. Last night was Malala’s Nobel Peace Prize, god awful country covers, fine art micro-penises, dicks out for HARAMBE and
