The One Where All Names Were Unpronounceable
Kalkema

Hey guys! Its warm by God, it finally got warm! In fact I would wager to say most would find the weather hot. I love this time of year and I love getting a group of you guys together and Quiz the shit out of you. Wait... That sounded weirder than I thought it would... Meh, no regrets. Next week will be my last regular Quiz at Burke's and next week I'll give it the proper send off it deserves, but just as a preview I want to say thanks to you guys for making this a highlight of my week for three years running.   We learned a lot at Quiz tonight: We checked out some celebrity search histories. We learned there is and Office theme Quiz incoming. We

Everything I learned about what is great in life I first learned from my parents.


My comedy comes from my dad who is the funniest guy I know. He would throw on Monty Python

records when I was a kid and laugh until he cried. He also introduced me to some of comedy's most

renowned classics.

 

Python? Check!

Martin? Check!

Carlin? Check and check!

I could go on, but you get the point.

 

So, if you find yourself enjoying my personal brand of humor, just know I stole it from my father 

and the hoist up a cold one for Bruce. :)

 

From my mother I inherited a deep love of books and movies. I have a personal movie collection of

300+ and my mother's collection puts mine to shame. I can talk movies for hours and its all due to my

dear sweet mother who has a special place in her heart for giant animal movies. Lake Placid, anyone?

 

So thats me in a nutshell. I'm a born and raised, comedy loving, movie nerd with a helluva Marvel Comics

collection.

Chex Quest Nostalgia
Kalkema

Hey guys! Another night another Quiz for the books. Even nights like these that don't have anything particularly good or bad about them have a certain charm to them. the music was good the sound was excellent and everyone played well. its just nice to have a bit of normality in this crazy world... plus I cursed at a child.   We learned a lot at Quiz tonight: We learned you can anagram just about anything. We learned GWD is hiring. I learned that Hound Dog was a cover. We played a rousing game of square or round. I learned what a parsec really is. We learned more about Claude Debussy than I think we ever thought

Hey guys! Cubs win and some quality Quiz. Couldn't ask for a better combo. Well I guess you could ask for the weather to act like its May, but I'll take what I can get in the mean time.   We learned a lot at Quiz tonight: We learned Larry Bird is a French Lick legend. We remembered Trump is awful. We listened to some truly awful covers. We learned who is getting high... ... And its not Vermont. I had a tough time with names in the Christian category. We looked at babies dressed like people. I learned that politiburo is a word. I got to say "Moops." We listened to some quality flicks. I

Astro Lodger...
Kalkema

Hey guys! A lot going on in my life right now, but its always nice to come to a place where everybody knows your name. (Because I tell them it every night.) So thanks for that. :)   We learned a lot at Quiz tonight: I learned what Illinois means. We listened to some mash-ups (some better than others) I told you how James Joyce was a weird dude when it came to his wife. I got to say "kinky fuckery." Someone told me that I played Plump in Aunt Bill. We looked at some music folk. I had a tough time with astrologer. We talked about that Scottish play. Many of you killed the MTV Cribs round. ...And

Greeting beautiful people of Burkes Public House and thank you for coming to trivia. I apologize the lovely Kyle could not be there but I was so happy to get to spend some times with you lovable and brilliant people!   We had an amazing night of trivia,  here are a few things that we learned:   No one knows who Lukas Graham is.   We all felt like The Labyrinth was wayyy longer than it actually was.   We thought that hard boiled eggs were worse for us.   We didn’t get the name of that caricaturist at Disneyland, so how were we supposed to remember the one who does celebrities?   Caricaturist

Hey guys! New mic new life. Amie was a trooper and I appreciate the hell out of someone who covers a shift for someone and then that shift goes to shit and they still show up the next week with a smile on their face. Anyways We had a nice group tonight and some real solid play.

No more boots, no more hats, no more feeling like the icy fingers of death are wrapped around my... you know... lets just say I'm ready for the change and leave it at that.   We learned a lot at Quiz tonight: I learned that the Joly Green Giant has a sidekick.

I got sidetracked more than a cross-eyed train (Dad joke) and you do have the ability to make me laugh. It makes my job that much easier.   We learned a lot at Quiz tonight: I learned you can buy Dead Sea mud. I also learned that John Wilkes Booth's doctor got life. We wondered about the famous bluesman Swamp Thing. We listened to some covers. We listed some NCAA teams and one guys bracket is not to be fucked with.
