Somebody noticed I’m not quite as much of a fatty. In other news, I’m still a fatty.
Adam Jarmon Brown

So I’ve been on the Keto diet for about 6 weeks now. I say diet, but really to have long lasting effects it’s going to have to be a life style change. Let me tell you tho, giving up carbs suuuuuuuuuuucks. Did you know potatoes and corn are pretty much just empty carbs? Delicious empty carbs. And giving up pizza, my god, do you have any idea how hard giving up pizza is? I lived off pizza for years. And years. And to be honest, that’s probably a big part of why I’m fat. But, I am down 25lbs in 5-ish weeks. I have a weigh in on Monday and today… today two people commented on how much weight I’ve lost. So I’ve got that going

Welcome to the Cube. Hope your survive the quizperience.
Adam Jarmon Brown

Guess who’s back? Back again. Guess who’s back? Tell a friend. I was actually sick for once last week and the lovely Rebecca was kind enough to step in and fill in while I was laid up with the crud. I spent like 5 days on the couch with a fever, feeling like crap and watching The Flash on netflix. And man, does that show hold up on a 2nd viewing. But tonight I was back and we had a Mo’F’n Quiz boys and girls. Eight rounds of quiz where you all tried to bash each others brains in. But with superior knowledge rather than big f’n rocks. We had a massive upset at the end of the night. First time in

Is This the Real Life or Geeks Who Karaoke?
QM Rebecca

I had such a fun time at the Cube tonight!  I might have to make sure QM Adam has to be absent again in the near future so I can come back and visit. We had 8 teams tonight, including one with QM Graig, which was a good thing because the speaker for the Cube is heavy.  Thanks for the muscles Graig! The night started with 8 woodsy questions on Pennsylvania.  For a bunch of New Mexicans you all did pretty well with it!  Next we had the audio round where each title grew by one word from the previous title.  A few teams did really well with that round and decided to joker it, which ended up being a really good decision in the end.  Then we had the

My favorite is Drunk History. I have been a "Geek Who Drinks" for many years now and I am so thrilled to be a Quiz Master so I can share my love of drinking and knowing things with those around me.

Can’t take the sky (vodka) from me
Adam Jarmon Brown

Welcome back to me! I took last week off for a convention here in New Mexico-Land, so the always wondering Other Eric stepped in and hosted for you. Eric is always such an accommodating co-worker, and I am pleased as punch that all the quizzers love when he steps in to substitute host for me. A good time was had by all from the reports I received back. Huzzah! Tonight I was back in the saddle. And boy did we have a quiz. Nine teams competing to be the top dogs at the Cube on a Thursday night. It warms my black little heart to see so many of you trying to beat the others into submission. Like my own little Fight Club, but with quizzing instead of hitting.

We All Make Mistakes...
"Other" Eric

     I love hanging with you Thursday night Quizzlings at The Cube. The food and the atmosphere...it should be on a TV show where some chunky guy talks about how great it is.  Anyway, I don't usually like to harp on people's wrong answers, but we had some funny ones tonight. A team thought that a racist governor may have been our very own Susanna. You thought the famous time traveling movie with Brad Pitt was either "Seven" or "Ocean's 12". My favorite though: Colorless handcuff recreationist was the question, your answer? CHRIST!!! Sorry kids, no handcuffs there. I find this most humorous not because of the answer itself. It's because as I read the quiz over

The Tick Vs The Quizmaster
Adam Jarmon Brown

Hello Quizzers! Crime is A Foot. Wait? A Foot? What? Oh! The pilot for The Tick Reboot dropped today on Amazon. Get the to a web browser or prime video app and watch that shiznit right now, cause it’s GREAT! Tonight we had a quiz. And we had some newbies, or as I call them: Quiz New Borns. Everybody was a baby once. Oh, sure, maybe not today, or even yesterday. But once. Babies, chum: tiny, dimpled, fleshy mirrors of our us-ness, that we quizmasters hurl into the future, like leathery footballs of hope. And you've got to get a good spiral on that baby, or evil will make an interception.

One Quiz In Bangkok Makes A Hard Man Humble
Adam Jarmon Brown

Welcome back to the Cube BBQ. Tonight we had an eight round quiz on a variety of topics. And only two of our 7 teams came out on top to win the big prizes. Tonight we started with round 1: Global Three-For-All.  Three word clues describing countries, and the words first letters are the first three letters of the country name. Round 2, our music round, Needs More Growl. Punk and NuMetal covers of popular music. I was pleased that my quizzers all recognized Journey and Elton John. Good expanded music tastes! Round 3: Missing Persons: Marquee Edition. This round I committed the

Suicide is fun, but only in Squad form
Adam Jarmon Brown

So we had  quiz last night AND the premier of Suicide Squad afterwards. Allow me to spend a couple paragraphs discussing how fun that much was, vs how much Jared Leto’s joker sucked.  Actually let me focus on the shitty representation of Harley Quinn in Suicide Squad. It was nice to get a live version of Harley, but it was also about 12 steps back to have her be in that shitty awful relationship with the Joker again. In the comics Harley has moved past that and become a character in her own right. Is it a GOOD character. I don’t know. It’s an enjoyable character, and one

Music Makes the World Go Round
Adam Jarmon Brown

It makes me happy when my quizzers ask me what music I am playing in between rounds. I play a lot of covers of popular music, nerdy remakes, and small indie bands that I find online. This weeks musical selections that got people curious were: Steve’N’Seagulls cover of Thunderstruck: https://youtu.be/e4Ao-iNPPUc A bit of a hillbilly cover band they use anvils in their music. ANVILS. They’re pretty damn awesome. Dorothy “Gun In My Hand” : https://youtu.be/8SGVRcJARxQ Dorothy is an awesome band from LA. And they’ve

The Beastie Boys Save The Universe and other stories…
Adam Jarmon Brown

  I’m tellin’ ya all it’s Star Trek Beyond. We interrupt your regularly schedule GWD blog for my spoiler free review of Star Trek Beyond. Man that movie was AWESOME. Aside from quibbles I have with the writers getting Star Trek technology just plain wrong (Don’t go to warp without a deflector dish, that’s just a BAD IDEA!) I absolutely loved it. In fact, Beyond is my favorite of the three nuTrek films. In order I’d rate them Beyond, Star Trek, Into Darkness. Into Darkness had some neat stuff with Section 31 and the Vengeance and Klingons, but fell flat in it’s execution of Khan

Pokemon Has Got It Going On
Adam Jarmon Brown

  I count myself lucky enough to NOT have a team named “Pokemon Go Fuck Yourself” this week. Pretty much everyone had at least one of those, so for once I am in the minority. On the other hang I am in the majority because I am actively playing Pokemon Go. It certainly makes my lunch break at my day job more interesting and walking my dogs more fun. So I think in the long run it’s a winner. I’ve been debating joining up with one of the local groups that hit the pokestop heavy areas this weekend. If I do I’ll update with how that goes. Holy smokes! Is anyone else nearly as excited for The Dark Tower film as I

Mmmm I love the smell of smokers in the morning.
Adam Jarmon Brown

  So today I logged in to check my bank balance. As I do often, and so should you! And saw that Amazon.com had charged me $30 for something, and I had no freaking idea what. I spent about 20 minutes looking at my amazon account and orders before giving up and getting on Help Chat with their reps. It took the rep a hot minute, but he told me that what I had been charged for was a copy of Zero Time Dilemma for PS VITA that I had pre-ordered in June of 2015. I had COMPLETELY forgotten about that game. And was suddenly very excited to finally play it. It’s the third (and final?) game in the Zero Escape series. 999 nine hours, nine persons,

  Oh man. 30 Rock. I love this show. LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I think I’ve watched the entire series 4 times so far. and am currently working on my fifth. Cause hey. theme quiz made me do it. Plus, this is my first theme quiz as the host at The Cube BBQ.  I do love me some theme quizzes. I haven’t hosted one since last years Marvel quiz I think. Which is a whole other topic of fandom. But if you read this blog you know I love me some comic books. This was our first theme quiz doing Pre-Registration for teams and it went smashingly! I hope we continue to do this as it made checking in

Cue the Segue
"Other" Eric

     What a great night at the Cube! We had a question tonight that talked about good old Jimi Heselden. Wait, you don't know who Jimi Heselden is? He was the owner of Segway Inc and he died in 2010 testing a "cross country" version of a new segway on his property. Now, I'm a sick bastard and I know you kids are too. This reminding of this event reminds me of a new game my kid showed me (and I quickly downloaded on my phone) called Stickman Dismount. The purpose: score as many points while torturing this "stickman" by throwing him down stairs, off cliffs and getting to use more props (like TNT and brick walls) because you get more points for doing more

Halfway into BBQ and Quiz and she asks for more sauce.
Adam Jarmon Brown

Hoo-Boy! Tonight was an exciting one at the ‘ol Cube tonight. I got to announce “Eat it Nerds!” the 30 Rock theme quiz coming up on June 30th, right here in our little ‘ol venue. Super excited and stoked for it. I do love me some 30 rock. Like LOVE love. Kennth, Jack, Liz, Jenna, Tracey, Dot Com and all the rest hold a special place in my heart. So be prepared for me to have a VERY GOOD TIME with this quiz. In other pop culture news it broke today that Kevin Smith’s Mallrats 2 has morphed into a 10 episode TV series. Which has me fairly pumped. Kevin Smith directed an episode of The Flash this past season and knocked that bad mama
