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,

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

Adam Jarmon Brown

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

Adam Jarmon Brown

  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.

Eight songs about crashing a fan boat into a manatee on bath salts is the best round name ever
Adam Jarmon Brown

Holy moly did I love the title of round 2. It made me giggle every time I read it, and every time I scored it. And when I went over the answers. Just hilarious. I do love our editorial staff. Tonight we had quiz. We had regulars. We had new comers. We had bonus questions. My god, we had it all! Quizzing is serious business? Speaking of series business, did anyone watch Flashpoint? The season premiere of the Flash was intense. I do love that show, and really do consider it the best superhero show on TV right now. Okay, back to quiz after our quick geek out right there. Our round themes in a quick break down:

Adam Jarmon Brown

  Several new teams full of faces I didn’t recognize tonight. And I sincerely hope they become regular teams of faces I look forward to seeing every week. Regulars make me happy, it tells me I am doing a good job. Tonight we had a quiz. It was a good quiz. It was full of win. 8 rounds of win in fact. I do love watching the teams drift up and down in the standings as the evening progresses. Tonight was a special treat as several teams held back their jokers for round 8. It was what you call an upset, with our winners for the night shooting up from deep in the ranks to take the title in round 8. Our

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

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
