Chestbursters, Xenomorphs and Androids oh my!
Adam Jarmon Brown

  Alien: Covenant opens this weekend. I don’t get to see it till Tuesday. but I am fairly excited to check this shiz out. It’s currently got a 73% on Rotten Tomatoes, which ain’t half bad. I am excited to see Ridley move past the travesty that was Prometheus and make a new Alien movie. So, my blog next week will prob discuss my opinions on the movie. But, it’s Thursday night, and we proud, brave and smart came out to the Cube to play the quiz. Seven teams of you. In fact seven almost full teams of six, and one team of ONE. And that team of ONE whooped all your behinds. But, only four points between

It’s always Queen and David Bowie, never David Bowie and Queen.
Adam Jarmon Brown

Tonight’s round two included Under Pressure by Queen and David Bowie. I pointed out at the head of the audio round that this was in fact a duet, and would require both artists to get the point for the answer. Most people got it, but a few teams did not. Most of the incorrect answers were Freddie Mercury and David Bowie. Which is just plain wrong. While Freddie did have a solo career and put out several albums, this was totally and completely a Queen joint. One team wrote David Bowie and Queen. Which I was a bit more lenient on for terms of scoring. But I did feel the need to point out that the absolute correct answer would be Queen and David Bowie. As awesome

ART Conspiracy Theory
"Other" Eric

     This is my conspiracy theory. Let me begin by stating there are absolutely no facts to this, just my ASSumptions. We have a mayor who made his money in property.  We have this huge project that is his baby. Literally, this is his monorail. Not unlike Homer with his monorail and Bill Richardson with his birail-monorail, but the mayor is banking on his mono-bus-o-rail clusterfuck. Nobody wants it. We don't need it. That money could have assisted the homeless and made the current bus riding experience safer. Anywho. Here is the point: The mayor came from money in realty. His project is killing every single business in a once valuable area.  What happens next? Yup,

Rearranging My Day Job's Office Day!
Adam Jarmon Brown

Thursday April 27, 2017. The day that will live in… okay not infamy. Not even really be remembered next week to be honest. But today was the day we rearranged the office at my day job. I work in a communal office with three other guys. Well, two other guys now. The assistant manager moved into one of the other communal offices so he could have more room and so the other three of us could spread out a bit more.\ We also keep a work bench for when we’re working on computers in the office. A couple monitors, keyboards, mice, a UPS etc. So we rearrange the desks and I ask one of my co-workers to unplug all the cables, move everything

Geeks is back. Back again. Geeks is back. Tell a friend.
Adam Jarmon Brown

  Thursday night, 8pm, come on down it’s time to play the quiz. Tonight we had eight rounds of quiz, like we do every Thursday night! Have you told your friends? If not, bring them next week, the more the merrier. Tonight’s rounds included fictional characters doing a reddit AMA, Sex terms and men named ed, a visual round on robots, and a whole beautiful round on War & Peace, one of the greatest novels every written. One thing stuck in my craw tho.The fictional AMA round included a question directed at Indiana Jones “Are you an immortal now, after the grail?” Seriously

In soviet russia, blog titles you
Adam Jarmon Brown

Tonight we returned to the cube, and boy does that BBQ cooking always smell delicious. Let me take a moment to complain about the fair city of Albuquerque, and the Albuquerque Rapid Transit project. My city fell in love with this project. And by my city, I mean the government. And have sunk tons of money into basically turning our main drag Central Ave into a super fast bus corridor. Without taking into consideration the traffic nightmare basically ripping up the main drag for a year or more would cause. On top of that without taking into consideration the way it would affect the businesses on that main drag. So many small shops have either

The Quiz That Wasn’t Twin Peaks, but was still pretty fun
Adam Jarmon Brown

Tonight we at the Cube gathered around the smoker and played the quiz. Some of our usual family was off playing the Twin Peaks theme quiz, but some of you came to enjoy my delightful company at The Cube. Six teams came out to compete for eight rounds of Pub Quiz and each kicked ass in their own way. It always makes me happy when a round, or even a question comes up and I can see one team member perk up, their body language saying “I got this!” Round eight tonight had a question on Rupaul’s Drag Race and one of the members of Illiteracy (sp?) perked right the fuck up about it. It was awesome

Mass Effect is Great!
Adam Jarmon Brown

An Asari, a Turian, a Krogan and a Salarian are all trapped in a Reaper ship, waiting to be caught and transformed into Husks. The Asari picks up her pistol, and with a grave tone says “This is for my people”, shoots herself, and falls over dead. The Turian, following her lead and understanding that it would be better to be dead than turned into a Husk and used by the Reapers, turns his rifle around, says “And this is for my people” and shoots himself as well. The Krogan, with a determined grunt, grabs his shotgun, exclaims “And this is for MY people!” and shoots the Salarian in the face.

Trapped in an attic
Adam Jarmon Brown

That title doesn’t have nothing to do with nothing. I just happen to be watching the episode of Family Guy where Lois locks Peter and the guys in the attic and, uh, yeah, I needed a title for the blog. So there’s that. So daylight saving time kicked in this weekend. That sucked right? I do enjoy getting home from work and the sun is still up. I take the dogs out for a quick walk and it’s not dark and I’m not worried about being jumped for my phone in the park. And yeah I have dogs, but they’re two high maintenance chihuahuas so they’re not scaring anyone off. We had eight teams for quiz tonight. Some of ya

Post Geek Bowl cold attacks! News at 11!
Adam Jarmon Brown

  Geek Bowl XI was last weekend… and it was AMAZING. I met so many quizmasters and quizzers from all over the country (AND CANADA!). And a team from The Cube took 4th place! We’re awesome, yes we are. But the downside of going to any large event like Geek Bowl, or a comic-con is the inevitable plague that tries to catch you. I’ve been fighting it off all week. Sadly, it caught up with me. I’ve been sick for two days, stuffy, headachy and feverish. I was hoping it was allergies at first, but no. NO. It’s a goddamn cold and it’s kicking the ever loving crap out of me. But,

Today I was Adam's Favorite Person! :)
QM Rebecca

A desperate Adam took to the FB Messenger to find someone who could cover him for Thursday night so he could go see the opening night of Logan, and less importantly, so he could get some sleep before his 4:30am flight to Quiz Bowl.  Left and right the other quiz masters gave reasons for why they could not help him out.  All seemed lost... until SUPER REBECCA and her amazing substitute powers saved the day.  Adam actually said I was his new favorite person for the day!  That's going to warm my heart during these long weeks of winter.  And Adam, if you're reading this, I hope you enjoyed the movie.   The quiz writers this week seem to have

Andrew, you’ll be missed.
Adam Jarmon Brown

      Tonight we did a Quiz for a Cause. Over the Winter Break for UNM one of our own, Andrew Rawson was struck by a car and sadly passed a way. Tonight we were raising money to donate to his memorial fund and to help raise safety awareness. It was an excellent quiz, and it was well received by all of you. We raised a nice little chunk of change to donate, and every little bit help. So from the bottom of my heart I thank you all my quizzers. We did eight rounds of quiz. We laughed. You all mother fuckers got loud LOUD LOUD. Of course that also might be a case of you’ve

“Play it again, Seymour.”
Adam Jarmon Brown

  Thursday night, 8pm, and that means it’s time for Geeks Who Drink at The Cube BBQ. Man, this has been a busy week. And today, the morning after quiz, I feel completely exhausted and sore. But I spent the better part of two hours with Fernando (remember, Fernando quizzers?) at the gym. I learned I am stronger than I think in some ways, and a pansy in others. But I did the lifts and exercises, and I’m going back tomorrow. #StopBeingAFatty, my personal mantra.  Also, I picked up Quantum Leap on BluRay this week. God, that is a beautiful transfer. And it’s really nice to re-watch a show I grew up

Secret of the Booze
Adam Jarmon Brown

Thursday night. 8pm. The quiz don’t start till I walk in. It’s another Geeks Who Drink at the Cube BBQ. Cold beer, delicious food, and me your lovely host. As we gather around the table tops, arrange ourselves into teams of six or less and come up with our witty team names, let’s take a moment to be thankful for Me. Your host. Your quizmaster. The voice you listen to for two hours. Tonight we did eight rounds of pub quiz and you all knocked it out of the park. Until round 7. Then one team, who shall remain nameless had to go and not hear the rules of the round. Round 7, an audio round involved listening to

Probably on a Thursday
Adam Jarmon Brown

  Oh man, TV season is back, and let me tell you: I love me some Scandal. Political intrigue, murder, love, sex, an assassinated politician. Season 6 is shaping up to be in-freaking-sane. If you’re not watching this show trust me you really should be! The first five seasons are on Netflix, go forth and binge! I also fell into the Crazy Ex-Griflriend trap this week. I always figured that show was stupid drama crap, but Netflix recommended it so I put it on. And my god, it’s a musical comedy that is one of the smartest written things on TV right now. I am disappointed in my self for not giving it a chance sooner. Ah

Adam Jarmon Brown

  Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back to The Cube BBQ for another exciting installment of Geeks Who Drink. We came, we saw, we laughed, we drank, we ate delicious BBQ, and we quizzed like Professionals. PROFESSIONALS I say. Holy smokes, 11 teams of insanity tonight. And LOUD. But as soon as we started the quiz everyone settled into their listening stance. I do love QM’ing at The Cube. The food is delicious and the crowd is smart asses. You love a good comment, and laugh in all the right place. We had rounds on terrible youtube cover songs, famous last words, words with double O’s (but
