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

If You Need Me I’ll Be Bingeing The Entirety Of Night Court
James Sterling Pound

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

Just The Right Amount Of Commitment To Singing Blurred Lines
James Sterling Pound

Hey there Pinterinos! Good to see y’all again. Some crazy-ass weather during the day, but then it all finished up and it turned into a beautiful evening. Texas be crazy. And after that long weekend I honestly was surprised how many of you still had livers to punish. I know I did my fair share of damage. Anyshmoop, we quiz! Round One went wee-wee-wee all the way to the BANK. That’s how that expression goes, I’m pretty sure. Then we had some covers sent to us from across the pond. “Beautiful” renditions of favorite artists like Rihanna and Tracy Chapman, covered by luminaries like Birdy and Mallory Knox and other people I’ve actually heard of.

Pottery Wheels and Sex
James Sterling Pound

Hiya hey hi Pinthouse! Good to be back friends! Sorry I had to go see my buds Darryl Hall and John Oates last week. They say hello. So quizzin, we had a punnirific first round, a geographical audio round, and a double your money third round! Shaking it up! Round Four’s theme was the motto of Dallas, “The Higher The Hair, The Closer To God”, and now that we mention it grown-up Simbe does kinda resemble Jon Bon. Maybe that’s why there were so many teen girls with awkward crushes on an animated lion? Visualwise we looked and hams in cheese. And fuck your Shazaams. That is KAzaam motherfuckers, get that bullshit right. Round Six Pots and Lots!

Miss New Boot Scoot Booty Boogie
Carlos

It sure beats speed rounds! We didn't make you barge your way to the front of the bar like you heard last call on a Tokyo subway train, so there's that. And I did have a great time hosting for you, alongside QM Kavi. It was like a dream inside a quiz inside the dream I'm actually still in. Come true. And we didn't have any dudesportsbros until the very end, and you managed to govern their excess sound quite well, if you ask me! Good on ya! We can do a quick recap if you'd like. Would you like? You would like. Keeping in line with spoon-feeding you easy ones in the first round, then bludgeoning you with excess later on, we tapped into that 3-year

Reluctant Rump Shaking
James Sterling Pound

Hey there Pinthouse Krew! Good to see y’all again. Feels like it’s been awhile. Just a week though I suppose. Been a busy ass week for me! Filming a lot of graduations for my day job lately. The NAMES, oh the names, names, names. And that goddamn grad march song. Oh well, last one tomorrow. Also, you don’t care at all. Quizstuffs! Last night we caught you up on Game of Thrones right off the bat, like it or not. I love that in my attempt to warn you of spoilers, I totally gave away the original answer and had to modify as I went. Anyways, Jon Snow died but then he didn’t. There now we’re all angry. Then we listened to a being named Jonathan Coulton

America’s Sweetheart, Barry Pepper
James Sterling Pound

Hey Pinthouse pals, another fun night of quizzin’! Thanks for coming out. However, I wanted to address something in today’s blog. It seemed when I announced the theme of Round Four all about Barry Pepper a good number of teams seemed to not know who I was talking about. WELL, let me help you. Barry Pepper is that other bewitching white dude in 25th Hour. Barry Pepper is that steamy heartthrob human in Battlefield Earth. Barry Pepper is that throbbing muscled neck always starring alongside Tom Hanks and/or Matt Damon in like, everything ever. But I feel Barry Pepper could be so much more. Barry Pepper should be in everything. Here’s some roles he totally shoulda

Why didn't we play more Amy? You lot probably could have used more in your lives, no? We had a fantabulous quiz with QM Kavi standing in at the scorekeeper position- black pen in hand, grinning ear to ear as somebody livened up her day by thinking Pennsylvania's state code was "PN." Sometimes, you make all of our days. Let's recap! Starting the night off right, we busted out our TTs and let the quizzers see them all in broad daylight! Did you know that Forrest Gump won the other half of those Olympic Table Tennis medals? True story, it's all right there in the doumentary they made about his life. It's eponymous. There was no way around us playing Eminem during

Hiya hey hello Pinthouse House gang! Thank for coming out last night. We were joined by our friends from Dev Bootcamp, and they brought the awesome! Pens? Got em! Phone chargers? Yep! Tote Bags? Uh huh! Water bottle? Glug glug mofo! T-Shirt? Xtra-Large!! Oh, and they kicked in an extra gift card of $50 dollars! That’s a lotta pizza! So, yea they’re cool in my book. Give em a look. Our quizzing covered ‘puters, stinky music, crap that Denzel has been in lately, and news that made celebs feel like crap. Toilet humor! I learned that Barnie and Betty Rubble are actually sterile and only adopted Bamm-Bamm. I guess that explains the hair of a 84 year old the kid’s

A Thrutch Of Ecdysiasts
James Sterling Pound

Hi there PintPals. Eh, trying out new nicknames. I dunno if I like that one. Gimme some feedback. Well, we sure did some quizzing. Carlos was there. I was present (mostly). You guys listened; you even tried to shout some answers out! But that makes me mad, so cut that out. Then we got interrupted for Jen’s Birthday in Round Two. I thought they were singing an answer. Turns out they weren’t. They were just singing Happy Birthday. In the middle of a music round. Drunkards. Oh well, they lost. HARD. But the rest of you did great with your ASSHoL answers, Eagles identifying, Argle-Bargle defining, deep-throating, movie mashing, and Fiorello

The Way Of The Future. The Way Of The Future. The Way Of The Future. The Way Of The Future.
James Sterling Pound

Well, well, well Pinthouse. Hey, we made it through the whole quiz without blowing up the power in the surrounding area! And not for lack of trying. Y’all were freaking boisterous and much more excited to quiz than we’re used to. Lower them expectations. Nah, Carlos and I ate up your “woo”s and “heeyaw”s and “wahoooo”s. Keep em comin.   We quizzed a many splendid thing, including “the cards” and words you can make with them. Played you some super popular songs throughout time, learning that Lil Jon can still kept folks pumped up for some reason. Maybe not as much as ABBA, but there was excitement none-the-less.
