Jam and Honey
Rainbow Brite

Thank you to everyone who braved the rain to make it out tonight! In theory we’re going to get a fun pummeling again tonight. So uh, be safe. Don’t drown, turn around! (I think that’s the cute cheer the Texas Highway Department has come up with.) Fun question I just got: Would you have laughed if we were “Morgan Freeman’s Semen Demon”? The answer, of course, was yes. Ladies and gentlemen, if you are ever wondering if a team name is too weird or vulgar, the answer is almost certainly, “No!” Just, keep that in mind. Also, check out like every Suburban Legends Disney cover. They are freaking awesome. And I don’t even like Disney tunes.

Howdy! My name is Katie, I enjoy long walks on the beach, pasta, and Christmas lights in July. The first things people notice about me are my subtle sense of fashion and my typically reserved demeanor. I have a penchant for video games, with a fixation on SNES games of yore. I'm only 5'2", but I make up for it by wearing 4-6 inch platforms. I'm a HUGE Twilight fanboy-girl.

Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight, and super thank you to 8th Wonder for providing those brewery beer passes! I help everyone enjoys their visits! I have but one thing to say, and that’s, “Shame on you all!” I blog every week. Most of the time a Survivor season is airing and so I’m blogging about Survivor. I love Survivor. It’s all I talk about on my blog for months and months each year. And yet! And yet! We get a Survivor related question and NONE OF YOU KNEW IT!!! Jeff Probst. Remember that name. Seriously! He hosts the show. Maybe remember the name “Boston Rob”. I dunno. Richard Hatch is a good one to know in a pinch. Perhaps

Can't Feel My Toes
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out this week! First quiz of 2017, and out of the gate hot. Or cold. Freezing? Did it get below 32, or does it just feel that way when I step outside? Can’t tell. I think in Texas water freezes at about 50 anyway, so let’s go freezing. Okay, so super congrats to Dick Wolf. They just won a set of passes to get into the Deep Eddy Vodka tent at the rodeo cookoff happening next month. Thank you to Republic Distribution for that! Our next sponsor is 8th Wonder Brewery. That drawing goes down on March 1st. Don’t forget, you get a raffle ticket every week just for playing, and you get extra entries for placing in the top three

Thank you all for coming out tonight! Last quiz of 2016 and it kicked off with Debbie Reynolds dying. That In Memorandum Oscars segment is going to take forever. Presumably they’ll score it to “In a Godda Divida”. Or maybe “This is the Song that Never Ends.” Glorious. I’m playing Sum 41’s “Fat Lip” and someone in here is singing along at the top of their lungs. But only about every fourth word. It’s two girls sitting at the bar, screaming into their phone “selfie side up”. I love it. Lots of head bobbing. If you two read this, please never stop enjoying life.

Thank you all for coming out! So, Houston got cold and then it got FUCKING HOT. And yet most of you clearly decided to go all in on the coat and sweater thing, because despite being over 70 outside, and humid like a mofo, I still saw winter weather gear. Welcome to Texas. Ha! I say this, I call 55 freezing. I’m also typing this in a sweater. Just that usually I’m the only person so inappropriately dressed. Okay, so one more quiz before the big Republic drawing on January 4th. So make sure you show up and get those raffle tickets. Also, make sure you escape the family and drink up. After quiz every week Little J’s runs a reverse happy hour. (Which is just

Kitten Caboodles Would Rock
Rainbow Brite

Thank you all for coming out tonight! We’re winding down 2016. TV is winding down 2016. Tonight is the Survivor season finale. Let’s do predictions tonight. First: The older guy whose name starts with a B has zero shot of winning. In fact, his only shot at even getting a vote comes from Sunday. I don’t know that anyone still in would even be willing to lug his dead weight ass to the end except for Adam and Jay. David and Hannah are too high on their own farts to do anything even close to logical. I have no idea what Ken Doll is doing. Second: If Jay is in the final three, he beats anyone. Handed-ly. He has got to win out immunity in order to make this happen

Thank you all for coming out tonight! We’re having a Houston blizzard down here. (You know, like 55 degrees outside.) I can tell I’ve been in this city for too long because I’m freezing. Or I feel like I’m freezing anyway. I’ve been wimpified. BOO! Oh well. I’m sort of bored right now, so not too much to talk about. Still annoyed with the Walking Dead. Still enamoured with Z-Nation. Survivor is picking up speed in a big way. Drawing rocks. Playing all the idols. Fun, fun, fun. I’m going through SVU withdrawl right now. I don’t know when this “let’s take a 2 month break during winter” bullshit started, but it makes no

Thank you all for coming out tonight! I think, I think the end of summer is finally here. I saw someone in a coat. It was 72 degrees out. I don’t know what the coat was about. Thanks Houston? Ha! Lessee… Walking Dead. Another week of stalling as we watch an ENTIRE FUCKING TARA EPISODE. An episode that chronologically took place while Glen was getting his brains bashed out. An episode that combined with the previous 4 could have been rolled into a single 90 minute season intro to introduce the different factions and then spend the season with actual plot building episodes, as opposed to watching Robert Kirkman lay down a god damn concrete foundation. Snoozefest. Like, some stuff

Thank you all for coming out tonight and having a fun and civil quiz. Yay! Puppies and Kittens! Two things. First, do any of you watch Z -Nation? “Puppies and Kittens!” is their zombie alert. The show is phenomenal, better than The Walking Dead. (Like seriously, it’s off the hook. There’s a plot that forces the characters to move, they’re not just sort of aimlessly moving because, “Oh shit! Zombies own the prison now. Move out!” The characters are exceptionally well written and acted. You don’t want anyone to die. The show keeps you hooked because the show is good, not because you’re dying to see who dies next.

Thank you all for coming out tonight! Between sportsball and the Supernatural theme quiz you had several alternative options, and I’m mighty happy you picked me. I’ll happily take credit for that. Ha! So the good news for you all is that I have ranted about the Walking Dead premiere until I’m blue in the face, so I’ll spare you all. I will say the following if only to briefly establish my position on the season six ender/season seven opener. I have no problem with the gore, violence, “brutality”, etc. It’s a show about zombies, psychopaths, power hungry dicks, and people. She’s gonna be violent. The comic is violent.

Thank you all for coming out tonight. Can I say how awesome it is to be out of my apartment? I managed to come down with a trifecta of germy-awful all at once and have not left my apartment since Friday around 10pm, except to go to the doctor and fill RXs. Seriously. Bronchitis, Upper Respiratory Infection, and FUCKING PINK EYE in both eyes. (Hence the glasses, more on that in a second.) Firstly, don’t worry, I’ve been on antibiotics for my eyes for 3 days and the doc swears that means I’m not contagious. As well my eyes aren’t pink anymore, and not goopy. (I love the word goopy btw.) However, I was told that I couldn’t wear contacts for seven days. That is the

And for that I feel like the city deserves a big, fat, “GO FUCKING COWBOYS!” Ha. I’m not actually a football person. I am a baseball fan, and while I don’t root for the Rangers, I don’t root for the Astros either. Though, and you’re not going to like this, I totally pull for the Yankees.

We asked you for the words on the Survivor logo. Our second place team wrote, “Trustworthy, Teamwork, Cooperation”. I have not laughed so damn hard. Those words are the antithesis of that show. Like, those are the three things that NEVER happen. “Backstab, Stink, Starve” would have been a better guess. Also, Thomas Paine didn’t write the Declaration of Independence. That was weird.

Thank you all for coming out tonight! Tonight is a Survivor/Law and Order SVU night. Sadly, Survivor is too new for me to actually remember the names of anyone. It’s also way too early in the season for me to make any substantial predictions. So instead, I’ll take this chance to talk about Karbach and our raffle. Every eight weeks at Little J’s we do a drawing. The drawing (and the 8 weeks leading up to the drawing) are sponsored by a Texas brewery. The brewery provides and pays for all the prizes leading up to the drawing, and then doubles down on the goodies the final week. One lucky team walks away with the grand prize. How do they win?
