Geeks Who Drink Ice Tea
Drew-a-mania

That's the first time I've ever worked sober.   Its in my contract at Geeks and my 9-5 cubicle job that I get to drink 2 Alien Amber cervezas.  2 beers or I don't lift a finger!  Its called the Keith Richards clause.  Luckily, Thankfully, Mercifully, Ferngully, I had some back up tonight. The Cube had a brief alcohol intermission this evening, but honestly my liver probably appreciated it.  However, that was not the interesting news this evening. We had our new friend Kristin, all the way from Flagstaff, AZ conduct her first quiz!  And she was amazing!   Yes I know she conducted 1 round yesterday and she only conducted 5 rounds tonight,

From Skyfall to delicious, delicious cookies.
Adam Jarmon Brown

Last night Quizmaster Drew had an out of town engagement, so I stepped in to cover his venue at the The Cube BBQ.   After a bit of sound difficulties, including trying to figure out how to make sound work and a popping microphone we started the quiz. With ten teams in to challenge each other we had a great crowd, that got pretty much every complicated round down pat.   Even “Your Mom”, who got some bonus points for writing “your mom” as the answer to entire round. Cause it made me laugh.   Our rounds last night started on figuring

Flower Girl
Drew-a-mania

Biggest news of the week?  Remaking Final Fantasy 7. Aeris ruined a few death scenes in this weeks' visual round.  She didn't really ruin them as much as she just did her best Cranberries impression and Linger.  Aeris was clearly the worst character in FF7.  I understand she 's a phenomenal embodiment of an 'inciting incident', but 'inciting incidents' don't help you fight Marlboro's, which look like Seymour from Little Shop of Horrors except they can turn you into sleepy spinning frogs (unless of course you have a ribbon).  She attacks with a selfie stick and even if you have the patience to get her level-4 limit break before she passes,

The American Dream lives on
Drew-a-mania

The American Dream passed away today... however the quizzers paid tribute to another cultural icon, Christopher Lee, with names like Sayonara Saruman and So long, Saruman :(.  Wonderful tributes, but I had a different hero.  Honestly when I first watched the Lord of the Rings movies I HATED them because I had no idea who anyone was talking about... Saruman? Sauron? Someone? Son of Ron?  IT WAS TOO CONFUSING FOR MY YOUNG MIND!   However the Dream Dusty Rhodes was always one of favorites, and the first professional wrestler that got me into watching 'old' tapes from the 80s.  I was never a Ric Flair or

Drew-a-mania

...Cat Andreas, Pitch Purr-fect, and my personal favorite Tomorrowland-on-her-feet... these were a few suggested team names I offered up for our Quiz for Cause event benefiting Fabulous Felines.  They were received in what revisionist historians will call 'a favorable manor'.  The teams had their own suggestions:  Kitties!!, Chain Lynx, and the little late but always on time Call Me Cat-lyn! Packed house this evening, or should I say packed Cat House?! A bunch of friends of felines and quiz regulars showed up in droves to support these poor unfortunate souls (the cats I mean, not the staff at the Cube).  In total, Fabulous Felines

A Coppola
Drew-a-mania

Everyone loves it when I drop the beat and do my acapellas! A whole round on songs with no instrumentals.  What a fun round?! Not as fun as if it was my original thought.  First time I read the round I thought we were about to hear songs in the key of Coppola.  TV theme songs sung by Sofia Coppola and Nicholas Cage... that would've been a hoot!  Mr. Cage gravelling his way through the How I Met Your Mother diddy?  Jason Schwartzman humming the theme to The Office?  That actually sounds like a B-side to a Coconut Records album. Anyway, I'm a dummy, but luckily the quizzers aren't.   The rest of the quiz went well.  In fact,

Girlz n Gunz
Drew-a-mania

In the quiz tonight we had a question that had 'Natalie Portman' and an 'Uzi' in the same sentence.  I quipped that they both are a little 'hit and miss'.  Yes, it was a laugh riot.  There were people doubled-over in laughter, falling out of their chairs with glee; that's not the point of this story.  The point of this story is that I want to pitch you a movie:   In a world... where Natalie Portman has an Uzi, I bring to you 'True Lies 2: Two Truths and a Lie'. Ladies are remaking plenty of classics, everything from Ghostbusters to Thor.  Why not a lady Schwarzenegger?  Natalie would be an amazing

Here are some fun facts about losing your voice: 1) Everyone thinks your sick! 2) Nobody believes you traded it for your legs! 3) Quiz is a touch harder to host I lost my voice this weekend hosting two comedy shows and yelling at 'fans' in an indy-wrestling match (my life is stellar).  Unfortunately, there isnt a quick cure to getting your voice back.  I've been sipping on honey and chamomile like I'm an Aguilera (or any other diva (or any other British bear)).  No real results though.  That's okay, quiz went off without a hitch and resulted in another consecutive success!  Here's the minutes from tonight: 7:22 Quizmaster Drew

Royal Baby: Sherlock McCartney!
Drew-a-mania

A week of team name gold... possibilities.  How on Earth did we come off a week of punable news stories to come up with these confusing, nay befuddling team names?!  The only two that had any relevance were: Tom Brady's Deflated Balls (an oldie but a goody) and Mayflower vs Puppychow (which is okay, I guess, if I were to pun their names I might go with something like: "Hail in Spring? Finally something entertaining from Mayweather" or "Pacquiao!  I choose you!".

Sometimes we all need a little a Alannis.  That Sweet and Sour Canadian Apple Pie of my Eye.  She was requested by the waitresses at The Cube tonight, but I believe it was a cosmic request.  After a week a crap news we needed to get that song bird rattling around our head space.  This was such a depressing week we had two teams pun their names off of a city that's still on fire, and I dont blame them, thats just where our minds are at.   Thankfully, Ms. Morisette was there for us.  She seems to always do the impossible:  whether its play God, change the meaning of Irony, or land a total bombshell like

Earth Day Hangover
Drew-a-mania

24hours removed from Earth Day and Im still reeling.  The number 1 party day in the world was a doozy.  Now I know why God rested on the seventh day... thats probably when 'Hair of the Dog' became an expression and God made Pluto.  Bleh... Yes, this is a nonsensical rant about the pretend after-effects of Earth Day and its relevance in our society.  We should have spent yesterday picking up trash, which would then be put in a plastic container (to remain on Earth until the days we grow gills), picked up by an emissions spewing trucks, and packed deep with in the Earth so that we dont have to gaze upon our filth.  Like eating a stick of butter (out of site, out of mind).

The cover of the film Seven has Morgan Freeman and goateed-up Brad Pitt intensely peering over some words that mean there's a head in a box, or whatever...  But the important part is the title is spelled out S-E-V-E and N! Yes! I know on some director's cuts they through 7 in there for dramatic effect and to piss of dyslexics, but that is not how the movie is titled and more importantly it reads... like, um... dumbly. Its not even a letter that looks similar (e.g. 'I' and '1' or 'BOOBS'

English-to-English Dictionary

The British.  The UKish.  Londonites.  Red Coats We have a myriad of options when it comes to referring to our paternal friends across the pond.  The one word we should use to describe them is Incomprehensible! Those people love Royals more than Kansas City and Pop-stations combined! (Do you see what I did there?  I compared the Royal family to an MLB team and a pop-hit from 2014.  Pretty clever right?  Right?  Ahh, you aren't even reading this.  To be honest I feel like I write these things purely to entertain myself, like singing in the shower or doing stand-up in Albuquerque.  I doubt anybody really reads these anyways...

Bullied by the bullied
Drew-a-mania

Nothing is worse than being bullied.  It destroys self-esteem and propels a cyclical world of viciousness and doubt.  In school, I would day dream of conversations and punches thrown towards the more confident on the school ground.  Specifically, I went to Middle School when the Amiguously Gay Duo was the hottest thing on SNL.  And because the simpler minded of our world didn't quite understand the genius of Robert Smigel I got "Ace and Gary" yelled at me constantly.   Middle School as we all know is the time to learn how to not be recognized. How to conform How to be nothing How to slip into the ether and form thoughts and happy
