3 Ingredients In King Cake: Puppy, Monkey, Baby
James Sterling Pound

Hey hey hey Pint/Pizza Lovers! Thanks for partyin with us last night! We’re back to the upper echelon of team counts, and I dig it. Though I can never tell how many damn Visual Rounds we need any more. Oh well, we Tim Gunn it. Make it work. Am I the only one still “forced” to watch Project Runway by their girlfriend? Whatever, what’s we quiz? Round One, we paid homage to the old adage “Be Kind, Rewind” and gave you some film plot lines in reverse. Is it wrong that the reverse plot of Trainwreck sounds more fun? Round Two took us through decades of February 9th jams, and as I pointed out most were probably played in a mall salon. Probably still

Music To Clean Your Butt To
James Sterling Pound

Pinthausers, hello hello! Weird ass quiz last night, huh? Seems to be the consensus across Quizlandia. Well our writers were having a little fun with a loose… loose over arching theme. I dunno if any of you caught on with our Round Titles of Transmission Start, Directive, Partners in [REDACTED}, Hauptsitz, Cashes To Cashes, The Time Draws Nigh, and It Goes Deeper Than You Can Imagine (hehe), but that was supposed to secretly tell you we’re part of The Illuminati. Fun? FUN! And oh shit, I just realized I never played some Jay Z and Beyonce. That woulda cleared things up right? A lot more than Yakety Yak, right? But whatevs. Carlos was gone to stroke his ego at a comedy

The Moment Panic At Disco! Decided To Get Serious And Drop The Exclamation Mark
James Sterling Pound

Howdy-ho Pinthouse Fam! Good ta see ya again gang. Damn, when it’s cold and windy outside we sure looked packed as hell! Maybe not a record setting night, but y’all sure as hell kept Carlos on his toes. And kept it loud. Thanks for lobbying all the complaints… BUT we did have us some fun quizzing! We started off with historical check lists, then headed into Round Nah-Nah-Nah-Nah-Number Two with all it’s nonsense songs. Round Three? Round Three was as mysterious as a ninja, honorable as a samurai, and as vicious as a yakuza. In fact it was all those things. Round Four, by far the quizzer and quizmaster’s favorite of the night. How DOESN’T want

Plaid On Plaid On Plaid On Plaid On Plaid On Plaid
James Sterling Pound

What up Pinthousers?! Wow, what a great turn out for our Lumberjack meet up! Thanks for getting together for that sexy picture too. I think I count 20 and we even missed about 5 or so folks in plaid and check variations. Crazy. Well, in between our talks of woodgrains, saw teeth, and hard hats we did a lil quizzing too. We started off with news stories. I want Steve Harvey to do more stupid shit. Less mentions of 50 Shades of Grey being an Oscar nominee. Then we celebrated the country superstar with the biggest, bounciest, most well rounded, um… songbook, Miss Dolly Parton! She even makes Fine Young Cannibals palatable. Round Three was a Before And After Round I didn’t

My Friends Are Hanging With The VPFLOTUS
James Sterling Pound

Like no shit y’all. I know somebody who got invited to the President’s final State of The Union address by Jill Biden the Vice President’s wife! Crazy! Also, Vpflotus kinda sounds dirty, no? Wait, the VP’s wife can’t be a FIRST lady though, right? Next First Lady? I dunno. My friend is badass is all. Hey, also we quizzed!   We learned our ABC’s two letters at a time in Round One, but had to stop at the 16th letter. Good luck with with your Qs to Zeds. Next we suffered through some open mic covers of various quality and cleverness. After that we belted out Round Three, Real Opera or Bullshit we made up! Operas are crazy as fuck apparently.

Michael Bay Presents Ben Hur
James Sterling Pound

Hoo Weeee Pinthouse! Now that’s a great way to start the new year of quizzin! Awesome turnout, fun folks, solid ass quiz. I loved it all. Oh, and shout outs to Stephen for jumping into the fray in Carlos’ absence! Here’s the gamut of topics we covered. We started off on January’s historical first week. A week of Edison killing an elephant, Leaning Tower Of Cheese-a’s closing, and Sammy Hagar getting speed limitations. Good start. Then we really blew it in Round Two. Fucking flutes. Second worst instrument behind harmonica. Then we had a Choose Your Own Adventure of a Round Three which led us to turn the page to find Kevin Bacon at

Top Ten Geek Moments of 2015
James Sterling Pound

Hey Pinthouse friends! Great to see a bunch of returning faces last night! Y’all were fun, and loud again. Well, at least green shirt man was. Last night was quite a bit of a review of 2015 at quiz, and that’s what the rest of the internet seems to be doing so why not take a look back at some of our favorite moments in this blog too? -That time your team drew a dick when they didn’t know the answer (every team, every week).   -That time Carlos wore a ball gag (that he owns) all quiz and I called him Bitch Carlos and he liked it.   -That time a dude yelled out an answer so I got a beer sampler paddle and taught him to never

The Pope’s Poop Was Poppin’
James Sterling Pound

Ho Ho Ho Pinthouse! Thanks for coming to play gang! Carlos and I had a jolly time with you naughty kids. I hope those that won my bonus gifts will cherish them forever. I mean who couldn’t use some koozies, air fresheners, nail polish, too small t-shirt, or dad cologne?! And I was happy the lady that got the bonus bonus tickets to Debbie Does Dallas The Musical was stoked about going! Here’s what we quizzed though. We started off with Uranus. Not typically where you begin. You’d usually wanna get loosened up in other “categories”, get relaxed into what you’re doing, and then really lube

Scotty Pippen as Uncle Joey as Ranger Joe
James Sterling Pound

What up my Pinthouse Geeks?! Thanks for coming out last night, good to see y’all! Beer was drank, pizza was consumed, questions were read, and brains were massaged for answers. Quiz Life! We kicked things off with what’s happening in the world today minus any mention of Star Wars. I suppose we did enough talking up of that last Saturday at our Star Wars quiz! It was awesome, you shoulda been there. Sorry ‘bout Round Two we kinda phoned that one in. Then Round Three threw some of y’all for a loop. Kinda challenging when everything is true, just not true together. But most of you Dan Browned your way to The Louvre and Vienna at least. Round Four’s title

Fred Savrage And Poop Potatoes
James Sterling Pound

Hey Pinthouse Gang! How’s it goin? You doin good? Good, good. Well Carlos and I had a good time. With the questions, and the beer, and the salads, and the music, and they hey and oyven. Yep yep. Last night we served up some cheeky tweeted movie synopsis. I appreciate the confusion between the hint for The Martian and the pollen of The Terminal. I mean the mythical country of Krakozhia from that movie is known for their poop potatoes. Round Two we learned one of our semi regulars used to tour with New Found Glory (poor guy), and he probably knows every terrible cover we played. Only thing is he didn’t make it this week. What terrible luck! First off he missed

There’s A Movie Coming Out Called Handjob Cabin

No really. Look it up. Hiya hi hi Pinthouse peoples! Heck of a quiz last night! Some challenging ass rounds, but y’all were up to the task it seemed. Nice to have a couple of other QM yahoos there giving us sass and SnapChatting our every move; love you Chelsea and Kavi. Thanks for sitting close enough to comment on how much pizza I end up spitting on to my laptop weekly. Anyways, enough fartin around the bush, what’d we talk about? Round One we asked for sound alike words and only gave you one point for both of em. Did you end up spelling ‘cache’ right? I know I probably wouldn’t have. Next we

Carlos’ Pervy Mustache
James Sterling Pound

Hey hey quiziteers! Good to see you lot out and about in droves before dealing with your families later this week. We had a rip roaring (well squeeking since I’m a bit sick) time, and you guys were down for some mutha luvin quiz. Last night we covered bird people (kaKAW), movie anthems you can’t help but singalong to, and  commie quotes. We got into cats and hats and cats in hats, specifically that Seuss one. I was always more a Horton fan myself. Course he didn’t have any fab accessories outside of that dandelion. We took a look at some fictitious lawyers, and found y’all might be getting your George Clooney and Liam Neeson “Michaels”

Someone Like You Set Fire To The Rain Crying, “Skyfall!”

Howdy ho, Pinthousers! Great to be back in action with y’all last night. I take it Carlos treated you all well last week? No? Well daddy’s back. A nice showing from you guys. Good energy behind that Kiss From A Rose sing-along at the end. Anyways, quiz stuff. Last night we went over some obvious stuff at the beginning, like sketch show characters of the 90s middle initials and things behind your “down pipe”. We jammed a bunch of familiar songs and practiced great restraint in singing them the first listen through. After that we learned Huey Lewis has not been gunned down to death, nor visited Communist China, but he did study at Cornell, the

Delicate Little Snowflakes and Quizzers
Carlos

We had a quiz on the Marine Corps Birthday! Woohoo! My dad's a Marine. Served in the 60's. Got malaria on his last day of deployment. Came back. Made me. So I guess you could say he's on a roll. If you want to have that level of awesomeness in your life that is having Carlos as a son, or comparable entities, I recommend you join the Marine Corps. They're pretty cool cats. Just do yourself a favor and don't try to keep pace with them when you go out. Trust me. What a lovely quiz we had YET AGAIN Pinthouse! They just had their 3rd anniversary and I have to give some mad props to the brewers of the tasty Anniversary Man 'O War. Delectable. Was the first time QM Chelsea enjoyed having

Hey hey hey Pinthouse! Good to see y’all. Yes, there was no Carlos this week (how come there’s no team name lamenting my absences ever? That’s right, I look.), but in place of that weirdo-beardo we had the lovely and hilarious Faith LAST NAME REDACTED**. A good QM from beautiful Waco that’s been hanging round these parts for a bit, and I was happy to have her. Even if she thinks Sandra Bullock has “orangutan titties”. Pretty fun and challenging quiz last night! We started off with what’s in the news, which a lot of times is full of bummer stuff, and this week was no different: Chipotle e. coli, a new Michael Moore movie,

Who Can Resist Candy From DickButt?!
James Sterling Pound

What a spectacular time last night with you ghouls! Carlos and I looked ridiculous, you guys got your sweet tooth fix, and we quizzed harrrrd. I love Halloween time! I mean, sometimes it can be stressful trying to figure out a costume, but it’s always so fun to see what people come up with. And some of y’all were positively terrifying! Oh right, we were the only ones dressed up. Oops. Our quiz was scare flavored, with our first round’s answers inside a G-H-O-S-T. Then Round Two had the spine tingling sounds of Jewel’s voice covering/warbling your favorite tunes of yesteryear. Round Three gave us some stuff to seek out at Vulcan Video, especially the Gary Busey
