Oh Urban Dictionary...What Have I Become?!?!
"Other" Eric

      Holy mother of god...I had the highest honor of having a team use my real name for their team name tonight! But then I thought, "is there a definition of 'Brower' in the Urban Dictionary?".  SURE AS SHIT!  There are 4: Brower(noun). Literally, "brewski in the shower". When you can't wait, nothing beats a cold beer in the shower. Hey man, whats taking you so long? Sorry, had to take a quick brower. Sweet, bring the rest of your beer over here already! by beerme20 June 06, 2010 browerWhen two bromates take a shower at the same time (in neighboring shower stalls).

You Probably Shouldn't Live There Either....
"Other" Eric

      So, here is a little tip from your Uncle Eric: when trying to figure out an answer to a question, try not picking the country that murdered 6 million people that is the topic of the question. "Hey wife, I'm tired of living in this country, where should we move to?" "Dear husband....NOT GERMANY!"      Anyway, the quiz kicked off with a Duh round, the audio of Children of Bodom covering some classic songs, the fewer 50/50 round, the round on your ABC's, and the visual of famous movie chickens. The back side of quiz had Handel, bars and bikes, the rhyme time audio round (Yes! Geeks Who Drink is now a fantastic TV show on Sfy), and for random

Adam Jarmon Brown

Hello again, quizzers! It is time for your Thursday night blog from The Cube! After a week of sub hosting for both Eric’s it was nice to be back in my home base for a night. Especially considering that I’ll be out of town next week and won’t host a single quiz at all. And for pre-vacation quiz you guys made it awesome. You’re always a great crowd and I love making you laugh with my wise cracks. On to the quiz. We had eight rounds of questions on a variety of subjects. 1. Milk’s Favorite Round - a round where every answer included the letters O-R-E-O. 2. …And

Adam Jarmon Brown

Another Thursday in the can, quizzers. Since taking over for Drew, oh these long two weeks ago, I’ve learned to love going to The Cube every Thursday. The food, the ambience, the die hard mode you quizzers go into over bonus questions. We had some rounds tonight! Eight of them in face. Round 1, was all about recent news from Russian Submarines to some rapper that sounds like a comic book character. Our music round was another spin on Human Cent-iPod where the last word in the artists name leads into the first word of the next song. And thus the Cent-iPod rolls down the hill. Round 3 was a speed round on GOP debaters last night. The best

Alas, QM Drew has moved on. And I am your new regular QM Adam. Tonight was my first night as your new QM and we had a fairly packed house with 14 teams. And and impressive noise level to boot. The quiz went smashingly! We had eight rounds of quiz that you you all did amazingly at. Our themes for the night were: 1. All cheap shills, great and small. - About product placements and ads featuring kids. 2. Ferme La Boosh (audio round!) 3. This round is lonely and desperate. - A speed round on dating sites 4. I’m sorry, but it has to be called “Rowling over the

Drew-a-mania

This was Quizmaster Drew's last night hosting GWD at The Cube.  After about two years I'm passing off my guaranteed two hours of power and pulled meat on to the next man or lady, but this time its a fella.  Adam enjoy the wonderful quizzers and oh so friendly staff at the Cube, which just so happens to be THE BEST food at any Geeks venue in town (Eric you chose poorly).  I'm going miss all of my little Cuberts, my Cubits, my funny intelligent John Cube-sacks, and how could ever forget my powerful Tesseracts. Yuck, this day has been filled with so much endings and saying good-byes.  First I quit my job, then wrestling, and now this.  I move to

When I'm not selling out I spend my time in ABQ as a stand-up comedian, indy wrestler, and salsateer.  My finishing move in wrestling is a high impact belly-flop; ironically that's how I end most of my comedy sets.  I suppose thats the Libra in me always looking for balance.  Which is probably a good explanation for the two tattoos on my back: one is a hawk with kanji letters in the wings and the other is Lucy Liu... that way I have two badass birds with a little bit of Chinese in them.

Grumpy Willow
Drew-a-mania

"Dwarf Empire is real!"  That is how you give excited answers in round 3 or how you piss of Warwick Davis.  If you've never seen Idiot Abroad (go do that now) there is a scene where the protagonist from the best Val Kilmer movie ever has a meltdown at a theme park full of little people.  Is it an awkward voyeuristic moment of human contemplation and cultural misunderstanding? Yes! Is it hilarious? Super YES!  I only laugh because I think Warwick would have the same meltdown at any Theme Park - - "You must be this tall to ride" has to be the bane of that man's existence.   Round 3 was full of even more bizarre, gross, weird, honest and phony

The Thunder Rolls
Drew-a-mania

Another gloomy day in Albuquerque.  We were haunted by ominous clouds that made our Land of Enchantment feel a little Ohio-y.  (Fun Fact: when there's an overcast and it feels like the Midwest those types of clouds are called 'Columbus')  Jokes!  It was dark today, in fact I don't think the sun came out until right before quiz, which made the lighting uber intense.  It felt like our quiz was being produced by a crime drama.  All of that added to the pressure of trying to answer questions... sober... questions sober feels just a little too much like high school.  Luckily, the quizzers were a flat out joy to be around tonight.  And we were informed from

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,

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

Packed house this evening, or should I say packed Cat House?!

A Coppola

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,

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
