If Only the News Ran Fox News
St. Jimmy

Here we are in our second week of the era of the “Guy Who Is Not JWarr” and I think we had ourselves a pretty fun quiz. I was a little nervous last week because I knew I had some big shoes to fill, but we got people singing to some renditions of Broadway tunes by the Swedish Chef as well as some choice Hamilton jams. What more could you ask for?   And now for a breakdown of the quiz   Jwarr's Friend is So Deep in the Closet He's Sucking Dick in Narnia had strong showings in non-sixteen point rounds, but that proved to be their undoing as they finished in last. Shitty Haikus were firmly in third place for

Stop trying to make Pappagorgio A Thing
JWarr

So the question we asked you was who won the cars in Vegas Vacation? That's what we wanted to know.  Bibi's Boys could not get off the fact that the fake ID was Nick Pappagorgio.  Yes, you're right. That was the name on the ID.  Sure. But I asked you for the name of the character.  That's not his name.  If I asked you "Who was the guy that fucked Nixon?" we wouldn't take Deep Throat. His name is Mark Felt.  Yes, I would take Deep Throat. However, that's a different context.  That's what I expect from someone when I'm feeling optimistic. So can it already, ok? Also, let's talk about things that are not a thing: -

Time is a Flat Circle
St. Jimmy

Hi everyone!   My name is Jimmy and I am your new Sunday quizmaster at Bryan Street Tavern. Its not my first go around at Bryan Street. Just last year, myself and my librarian and archivist friends formed “Librarians Against Reading” to rack up a nice string of wins at Bryan Street on Sundays. Once the team lost some members, I decided that I might give being a quizmaster a chance and low and behold a year later and here I am as the new quizmaster of Bryan Street. I’m looking forward to dealing out some questions, prizes, and my patented Fun Facts™.   And now for a breakdown of the quiz:   Peanut

What we mean when we say 'No Duh'
JWarr

These rounds are supposed to be not tricky.  It's one of those you hear the question rounds, start overthinking it, and we encourage you to take the question as literally and as straight forward as you can. So when the question is about who voiced all the characters in a film, that's not a trick.  Someone did in fact voice those characters. Sometimes these are stupid answer format, where we give you the answer in the question. They do that on Jeopardy all the time. Every word in the question matters. Did someone really give a shit about Marconi and Linburgh? No, other than Jeopardy nerds. But if you can translate those names into what they are known for,

Sportsball championships are this week
JWarr

I'm really nonplussed for this whole football thing.  It seems silly to me that we're going to pour a bunch of money and time into one game that really is somewhat luck based.  Why can't more things be about league play and winning the table rather than sudden death? But there's Lady Gaga, and for that I am on board.  Either one of your sports rounds tonight would be about football, but you went with the superbowl route and that turned out well.  Touchdown! Sportsball! Big shout out to UT Speech circa 2007 who came out in support and didn't embarrass themselves! Well, they kinda did in the Europe round where they went 7 out of 8.  I swear you

Thus Ends the Sunday Funday
JWarr

Sorry folks, this will be my last Sunday blog. The powers that be have decided I have to go off to greener pastures, but before I go, I'll leave you each with a parting shot: The Rural Jurors: any 30 Rock reference will make me super happy, so don't forget Wearwolf Bar Mitzvah and any and all of Lutz's hats. The Laggards: my word you should stop lagging! Boobie Pants: you weren't purposely showing off your boobies, nor were you really wearing pants, so what's up with that name? Gucci Whorehouse: what are the rates and can I get an exact address? Kevin

Take Your God And Burn It To Hell: A Bollywood Musical
JWarr

Four interesting cultural intersections all came together in one delicious quiz.  We had the JWarr original Bollywood and Dollywood round.  We also had a four point challenge on is it an Ann Coulter book or a Slayer song.  The former did not prove that challenging, although our knowledge of the Bay of Bengal could be improved.  The later, however, left me with a quandary. Some of you nailed all four points. Some of you got none.  For the former group, I'm assuming this means you either know a lot about Ann Coulter OR you know a lot about Slayer.  If either of those statements are true- why? Why do you know that? I will say I've read

The Place Where the Grunge Is
JWarr

Welp, it looks like a lot of you were at home watching the sportsball or whatever, but we had a blast.  We found out that grunge covers are universally terrible, but I think we already knew that? We remember that turning a sooner or later round sooner rather than later is always a good idea, and we learned that Wayne knows a lot about drugs. We also all won stuff! Where's Bryan won 25 bucks and two drinks, It's SOOP right? won 20 bucks and two drinks, and even I won a drink! Everyone wins stuff! If you didn't check out our Gilmore Girls quiz, the blog is up.  We will quiz Wednesday at 8 as per usual.  Reminder:

Gilmore Girls: a Quiz in the Life
Nicole

Well kiddos, it took us about 16 years but we finally had a Gilmore Girls Quiz!!!!! I mean, no not technically because Geeks hasn't been around that long... BUT it feels like forever since a few of us Quizmasters started bugging the higher-ups about it.  They finally got tired of us and gave in, AND LOOK HOW IT TURNED OUT!!!!  Last night was the best, most fun, theme quiz I have been a part of and I've gotta say it's a large part in thanks to YOU ALL!  I've never seen a group of more excited and friendly quizzers in my life.  But of course you were amazing, you're all Gillies!  For those of you not in the know, a Gilly is a term coined

Go Watch American Anthem Right Now
JWarr

We don't have a lot to go over today folks.  Out of a possible 96 points, your champions scored a 93.  Wow. I've been around a while in this business and I can't remember someone coming that close to claiming a 100%.  So let's talk about the three things they didn't know. #1- In round 4, we asked "On a standard Trivial Pursuit board, pie-piece questions are how many spaces apart?"  Our champions contest the answer is 6, but the answer is 7.  Here's why: the question is 'spaces apart', not 'spaces between them'.  You would have to move 7 spaces to get from one to the other (or do what I do and roll a 2, hit roll again, then hit another 2 to take another

Which Sportsball is This?
JWarr

The Cowboys did not do the thing tonight. It's over. It'd one.  If this were the Premier League (you know, a variant of the sport the rest of the world calls football), then we would have won.  Because there is no playoff.  Also there are ties.  How does that work? Simple. 3 points for every game you win, 1 for every tie, nothing if you lose.  Add up all the points at the end of the season and then you have a winner. Not the regular season. Because it's all regular.  Wrap your minds around that people.   So because the Cowboys couldn't lose in a timely fashion and had to drag things out to the last minute and still managed to lose despite protesting

Volcano go boom
JWarr

So this was an interesting night.  It's always weird when we say "oh hey, here's a stupid answer round", and then, the answers aren't that all stupid.  Still, you managed to make it through with respectful scores.   Trumped Up Trickle Down got a perfect round 2, but somehow couldn't clench the win. Volcanoes turned out to be a challenge as one of you thought Italy was on the wrong coast but a couple got 6.  Irish Coffee and  #Fake Trivia got the best performances, meaning that all volcanoes now spew Bailey's, and I'd bury myself in that lava any day.  To be fair, it was a night of ups and

Fake Ron Swanson and the Mustacheoed Curmudgeons
Eric Riggan

JWarr wimped out of quiz tonight - something about it being super cold and him being in Tenessee anyway and refusing to play ball and host via Skype like any sane person on a "much deserved" vacation. And for that, you get Dallas' resident spaz-on-a-mic behind the legendary Bryan Street Tavern plastic folding table. I sure think so!I get to spend my Wednesdays in exile on the patio as the resident nerd-with-a-laptop, so I take every chance I get to sit inside for a change and host for you fabulous people.

Banana Slugs May or May Not Be Better Than You
JWarr

Here are some fun facts about the banana slug, because I know all of you want to know. Yes, it’s true, their penis averages in the 6-8 inches range. That means someone in the bandroom, multiple someones probably, have penises that are smaller than a banana slug.  But did you know that both the male AND the female slug both have pensises?  It’s basically all anal from their on out.  Unless, of course, you eat the penis of your mate to create another hole.  WHICH TOTALLY HAPPENS.  No, really, look it up. There’s even a theory for it called apophallation, which posits that slugs munch on each other’s penises to prevent other slugs from

This Year Wasn't All THAT Bad
JWarr

Many of you will remember 2016 as a  stain on human history. No one can blame you.  We got Trump.  We got a celebrity or two that died.  We got Brexit.  It's been a rough year for being famous or for human rights and a liberal world order. But 2016 had some really great moments.  Ken Bone.  The death of Antonin Scalia.  We met Merrick Garland.  The Cowboys stopped sucking so hard at football.  The Stars were good for a while (and then this season happened).  FC Dallas won the Supporter's Shield.   Personally, this was a GREAT year.  I got a new big boy job.  I got a car.  I didn't die.  I saw Hamilton.
