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,

Full disclosure, my specialty is putting babies IN women.
Adam Jarmon Brown

  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

Two weeks until Eat It Nerds: A 30 Rock Theme Quiz. This is your two week warning! Pre-Registration is required and can be accomplished here: https://form.jotform.com/61595344702962 I love the smell of BBQ on Thursdays. It reminds me I am a live. It reminds me that I am a QUIZMASTER. Tho sometimes I think the delicious cows, pigs and chickens should have the Klingon death scream performed for them as respect for the sacrifice. Also, I cannot WAIT for Corn on the Cob season to start back up. The Cube does some AMAING corn on the

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

Why is Peter Pan always flying? Cause he Neverlands.
Adam Jarmon Brown

So tonight was the Disney quiz. But NOT at the Cube. The Cube was a rip roaring regular quiz. Much more intimate than usual. I would guess everyone was off playing the Disney Quiz. Thanks to that I had four teams of entirely newbies playing. Or at least new to the Cube. I hope they had a good time and will become regulars. I do love my quizzers after all. Eight rounds happened. Questions were asked. Answers were given. A entire round of bad puns was made. What did Cleopatra use to treat her snake bite? ASPrin of course. We had two top teams, but with only four teams I am going to give them all a shout out with their scores:

Make Mine Hydra
Adam Jarmon Brown

Wow, so Captain America sure exploded in the media didn’t he. For those of you unaware, in this weeks new Captain America #1 Steve Rogers was revealed to be, and has always been, a Hydra Agent. The Nick Spencer written issue ends with Captain America throwing Jack Flagg out of a plane and saying “Hail Hydra.” And I learned that people sure do love reacting to stuff in America! I mean, a comic book writer received DEATH THREATS for writing a comic book people didn’t agree with.  I get it guys, you take your fandoms seriously. But death threats? Threatening to murder a writer just because you don’t like

Bernie Sanders should be used to coming in last by now. (Shut up, I'm voting for him.)
Adam Jarmon Brown

What a lovely night at quiz! Perfect crowd, perfect food, and the staff at The Cube kicked butt for days. I love my job as a Quizmaster at The Cube.  There’s something wonderful about smelling all that delicious BBQ cooking and smoking and wafting through the restaurant. And then, there’s the changes I’ve made in my diet. Which are at direct odds with most of the deliciousness at the cube. But their pork loin is amazing. I did treat myself to Cube Fries tonight tho. French fries, cheese, green chile and cut up sausage. Amazing. Not my usual fare of chicken and rice and veggies, but for a cheat day it was amazingly

Smoke on the Water
Kirsten

When I walked in the door from last night’s quiz, my husband said, “Mmmm, you smell like briscuit!”  That’s the great benefit of doing Geeks at The Cube – instant meat perfume.  As always, it was an honor and a privilege to step in for Adam last night.  Shout out to the newest member of the pub quiz family, Tony on the Tens.  He’s starting a new trivia venture next week.  Best of luck, TT! Listen, few things in life are consistent, but Give Me Your Soul, Evil One! sure was consistent last night.  They aced the first round and then just kept the correct answers coming right up to Round 8 where

At the tender age of seven, Kirsten sat crying under the coat rack in Mrs. Johnston's second grade classroom.  She had gotten less than 100% on the spelling test and learned the harsh lesson that it was possible to get an answer wrong. Fifteen years later, that douchebag is your Geeks quizmaster.  A job that feeds her know-it-all soul.

Nourish Us!
Adam Jarmon Brown

I read. A lot. Like a lot a lot. I average at least two books a week.  Sometimes more sometimes less. My current drug of choice has been Star Trek novels. Not high fiction by any means, but fun fun. I’ve been working my way through Peter David’s New Frontier series. Which has been simply awesome. I’ve loved Peter David since his run on Incredible Hulk in the 80s and 90s. He also created Spider-Man 2099. He also had the best and longest run on X-Factor. Taking it from a spin off team of B listers into a Mutant Detective Agency soap opera which was simply fabulous. So, yeah, thats

Tabula Rasa
Adam Jarmon Brown

So, Batman V Superman. That was a thing that happened. I didn’t actively hate it, and there was quite a bit I enjoyed about it. But I still feel that the DC movie universe has gone Grimdark for the sake of being Grimdark. I mean, a major plot point of the movie revolves around a jar of Lex Luthor’s piss. Literally a jar of piss. Who does that? DC’s movies lack joy. That’s the conclusion I’ve come to. Man of Steel, and now Batman V Superman are just unhappy films. And that lack of joy makes them major bummers in a lot of ways. So I watched Deadpool for like the fifth time to get some of the taste out of my mouth. And
