“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

It’s Thursday Night. And the quizmaster’s right.
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

You can't take the sky from me
Adam Jarmon Brown

On December 28th, 2016 Andrew Rawson was doing something that lots of us do for fun, or transportation, or exercise, he was riding his bicycle home. On December 28th Andrew was hit and struck by a driver. He was airlifted to the hospital with head trauma. Unfortunately, and much to our loss, he passed away. His family made the amazing and life saving decision to donate Andrew’s organs to others in need. Andrew’s last act is to be a life saver. As many as 40 other people will have longer lives thanks to Andrew’s family’s decision. Andrew was a smart ass. I don’t say that from a place of meanness,

Intimacy: close familiarity or friendship
Adam Jarmon Brown

Welcome back to The Cube, and Geeks Who Drink. Tonight we did eight rounds of quiz, some delicious BBQ and beers and we laughed. Laughter is important today, and in the tough days and years we have ahead. But that’s neither here no there. Tonight we had a nice intimate evening of geeks who drink. Bonuses were awarded. Questions were asked. Prizes were awarded and laughs were laughed. Our winning teams tonight were: Stone Cold Jane Austen in 2nd place. And Quiz me harder! in first. With a 7 point difference Speaking of quizzing, did you know Geek Bowl XI is sold out?

Welcome Back! Back again. Guess Who Back. Tell your friends!
Adam Jarmon Brown

Wow! Two whole weeks off of quiz for the holidays. I hope everyone had a wonderful break, and a fabulous New Year’s Eve. I got pleasantly buzzed. Hung out with some great friends, and re-started my diet. Back in the saddle. I lost 50lbs last year, I’d love to lose 50 more this year. So I’m doubling down. Starting the gym again. Dieting. Walking 5 miles a day. Hoo-Ah! We had so many people in The Cube tonight. A private party took over half the restaurant. And joined in for a bit of quiz. Quite a few new faces in the new year. It was a great time, and a great night. And I was happy to be back. My favorite

Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling Clementine…
Adam Jarmon Brown

  And you all came out to quiz instead of going to Rogue One. Normally I’d get someone to cover the quiz and go see the movie myself, but I just didn’t want to experience the magic alone, so I am waiting until Sunday to see it with friends. So I am a big gamer, and I am a big fan of Telltale Games and what they do. I know, I know, they’re just point and click choose your own adventure games. But they’re well written and emotionally gripping. So, in anticipation of The Walking Dead A New Frontier coming out next week, I’ve been replaying seasons 1 & 2. And I cried. I’m not gonna lie. It wasn’t

New Perspectives AKA I sat in a new spot
Adam Jarmon Brown

Occasionally I’ll show up to the cube and my table will be taken. Not often, and it’s usually not a big deal. Most folks know that Geeks is Thursday night and I sit in the front by the outlets. But when I got to my venue tonight my table was taken. GASP. I hate, hate, hate, having to ask folks to move. I feel like i am interrupting their dinner and I don’t like feeling like a jackass by asking them to clear out. So I put my gear down and went to chat with a couple of regulars about our weeks. I noticed that the back corner table, opposite where I normally sit, also has power outlets and I could just as easily set up there. So

Post Thanksgiving Pre Christmas, all the quizzers come out to play
Adam Jarmon Brown

  Wow, you all must have missed me last week cause everyone turned out to play tonight at the cube. Did you all have a good thanksgiving? I hope so! I know I did. In that I worked, avoided drama and still got to have a delicious Turkey dinner thanks to a friend bringing it by my work and hanging out for an hour or so. All in a great turkey day. Tonight’s quiz did bring up something near and dear to my heard, and that is Pedro Zamora. Pedro was a member of the Real World San Francisco, and one of the FIRST openly gay HIV men to appear on TV/Pop Culture. He was an activist, and a personal hero of mine. It made me

Throwback Thursday
Adam Jarmon Brown

So. I had a great week. Several quizzes, lots of TV. Polished two books since my last blog. I am a reader, let me tell you. Found out a guy went to high school with has been indicted for murder. Ya know, the usual. I mentioned in a previous blog I had been in a car accident. So getting a voice mail from the Police wasn’t a terrible shock to me. I assumed it had something to do with that when I returned the Detectives Call. Turned out, not so much. The Detective (for some reason in my head his title came with a capital ‘D’) told me that a man I had gone to high school with, had in fact been friends with for the majority of high school has been

Just when you think things can’t get any worse…
Adam Jarmon Brown

  A lot of folks felt this week had gone bad enough. And then Leonard Cohen passed away. 82 years old, and one of the greatest musicians who ever lived. The man had a dark sense of humor and was a brilliant song writer. Leonard, you’ll be missed greatly by a lot of us. A small sampling of Leonard Cohen music for you: https://youtu.be/YrLk4vdY28Q - Hallelujah https://youtu.be/DsdAnYLvGe4 - The Future Tonight we had a quiz, and I had to break this piece of sadness

I Got T-Boned and didn’t even get a lousy T-Shirt
Adam Jarmon Brown

  Spent my Halloween evening waiting around for cops to show up after getting T-Boned in a dead of night intersection. On the bright side my cars crumple zones work exactly like they’re supposed to. I mean, I guess that’s a bright side. Tonight we did some quizzing. Six teams of die hard quizzers brave the cold and that terrible Abq Rapid Transit construction to hit the Cube and let me quiz them for a couple of hours. And quizzing we did! We did have one super interesting thing: A four way tie for 3rd place tonight! Four teams, all with 65 points. The Wallaces, Cubs Win! Trump Loses! Alpacas Some Wine

Ragman is still a stupid name for a superhero. What is his power? Rags? Tonight we had the pleasure of having Paul come in to audition for us. He read round three and did a good job! And you all were super nice and applauded for him. I don’t think I’ve ever gotten a round of applause from you all. Just saying. Eight rounds of pub quiz, delicious barbecue food and cold beers. What more could you ask for on a Thursday night? Well there WAS a new Legends of Tomorrow waiting for me when I got home. And six, SIX, loads of laundry to do. Oh, and the Skyrim Special Edition dropped. Having never played it the first time

  We had a quiz tonight. But before I go over the winners, I’d like to take a minute to point out the trailer for LOGAN. Cause goddamn that looks amazing. https://youtu.be/HhFP0V6n7aY Johnny Cash’s moving rendition of HURT? Check. Patrick Stewart old, decrepit and in a hospital bed? Check. Hugh Jackman’s Old Man Nineabs? Check. A kid to save? Check. This freakin’ movie is going to break my heart isn’t it? So tonight we had a quiz. It was a mighty quiz. Full of amazing questions. The best questions. We knew all

Learn to drive a stick shift, gosh.
Adam Jarmon Brown

Walking out of The Cube after last nights quiz I over heard a couple of regular quizzers discussing how one of them can’t drive a stick shift, and freaked out when trying to learn how to drive one. Which, honestly, made me laugh. Then remember the first time I tried to drive a car. Admittedly, a bunch of 16 year olds teaching each other how to drive a car probably wasn’t the best idea. Of course I’d never been behind a wheel before ever, thankfully the car was an automatic. Unfortunately the different between brake and gas didn’t solidify for me as quickly as it should have. So we go back into one one of the quieter neighborhoods.
