Definitely Not Brought to You By Russia. No, Not at All.
Sweet Adam

The snow, our late, late blast and last gasp of winter weather didn't keep teams from throwing down last night at the IG. Current events started things off. Questions about the number of ice cream scoops. Hey even if you get one more than I do that's fine as long as n represented as quantity of ice cream in the formula n+1 starts at the "half gallon" mark or somewhere nearby. Our Round 2 audio was no secret to Russia, as they have been injecting state propaganda into quiz for several years now. Obviously Geeks is not a front for such illegal activities. Obviously. Only when you start to see new quizzes in Moscow and St. Petersburg will it

Across the assorted continuities of the universe, there have been various interpretations of Adam. One of Adam's most notable characteristics in any form was his adamant commitment to leadership by example, and avoidance of any hypocrisy in his command. Adam is a wise and essentially upbeat battlefield general.

Other minor details about Adam's personality and personal life — for example, his dislike of rap music ("Blaster Blues" and "Quest for Survival"), which set him at odds with some music-loving characters. Adam also enjoys televised sports, most notably softball which he even plays ("The Master Builder"), as well as setting up a basketball court outside the quiz. Though Adam's personality is like that of a human man age 40-50, he is not above watching afternoon soap operas.

Brace Yourselves, My Relevance Is Fading Quickly
Sweet Adam

By the numbers, let’s walk through last night’s quiz. We had quite a few math questions, always in my top favorites because they mess with people so much: Round 1 (5.92) – A Round 1 about Round 1, the ouroboros of rounds so to speak. Fibonacci enthusiasts note that it’s, like, totally the coolest number sequence. Fibonacci. It’s so hot right now. Round 2 (10.8) – “Bork to Bork Hits” was not what I was expecting upon reading the title of the .zip file the song clips came in. The Swedish Chef took us on a bork-tacular ride of cover songs. But newest Bork contender goes to

I Bent My Wookiee
John, Time Lord and Quiz Master

One night ago in a bar not so far away a legion of geeks assembled to take on a daunting quiz that will not be forgotten... you joined over a thousand teams in celebrating and testing your knowledge in all things star wars!   I took to the stage as not your Timelord and Quiz​ Master but as John Solo, few others joined me in my cosplay quest, but we were graced by many an awesome Jersey and tee shirt. Those who did cosplay, and one guy who rocked the Leia buns left with some cool star wars themed prizes, that's a fairly common practice in the themed quiz world, so keep that in mind as we continue rolling out special events throughout the year.

As I sat in New, New, New, New, New, New, New, New, New, New, New, New, New, New, New, York
I found myself reflecting on the recent actions of the one known as The Doctor. Realizing how many lives he had saved, how much good he had done, i decided that there was only one thing that I could do to measure up; I needed to travel back in time to the year 2014 and become a quizmaster to help increase the general useless knowledge of the population. So here I am, Geeks of Fort Collins, to bring to you the knowledge of all space and time, at least the stuff that sort of matters.

John is originally from New York (upstate, the part that doesnt suck)

plays guitar, bass, saxaphone, a bit of keyboard

enjoys long walks off of short piers, picnics at the wrong end of a firing range, and playing in traffic.

It Feels Better With Toe Socks on My Feet
Sweet Adam

There’s a little chalkboard that has been sitting up on the equipment perch behind the stage. Not sure what its original intended use was but I wrote on it last week, left it where it was and lo and behold there it was again this week. “Your mother wears combat boots,” it said in terrible scratchy handwriting. I texted my mom just now and asked if she did have any combat boots and if she indeed was wearing them and you know what – she doesn’t and she wasn’t. Nice try there Mr. Chalkboard Insult Artist but my mom wears those five-finger webbed-toe things with the five-toe socks inside. Way cooler than combat boots, bro. On a side note why did it take

"Snap Yo Fingers" says Lil' Jon. Yes, you can do it all by yourself. Don't attempt to watch that video if you have an epileptic issue of any kind. But keep an eye on the suggested videos on the side. Chingy. Petey Pablo. Ying Yang Twins. It's like a straight audio headshot to the end of the last decade.We posed a few hypothetical AMA questions to fictional characters to start the night off.

Looking Forward to the Snatch Singularity
Sweet Adam

So much Alabama in our Thursday quiz it was hard to ignore. I mean just two questions out of the stack but Alabama, sweet home Alabama, you continue to deliver with scandalous governors and legendary eponymous country bands. I will have to begrudgingly admit I had to look up and see if Alabama the bad was actually in fact from Alabama. The answer is yes - in case you were curious - but it's one of those questions that would show up on a Duh! round at some point in the future. Also a brilliant shoutout to the team who put "West Virginia" as the answer for that Alabama question. Perfect in every way.

Go to China for Easy Movie Spoilers in the Titles
Sweet Adam

"He's a Ghost!" spoiled by the Chinese and we spoiled you last night with a choice selection of oddly-translated actual movie titles from China. And in a boardroom somewhere an American executive is scratching his head wondering why we have to release a movie called "I Will Marry A Prostitute to Save Money" in another country. My interest is sparked on the title alone and I don't even speak Chinese. We touched for a second on how awfully bad Twister is as a movie. You get Helen Hunt, Bill Paxton and Phillip Seymour Hoffman for a bargain price in this flick. A terrible romantic subplot, flying cows, beat up trucks chasing weather around the midwest...if

From the Honduras of My Heart
Sweet Adam

Lessons from the evening of March 23, 2017 at Island Grill: Three letters of the TV show, a description and a year doesn't always equate to success for our first round. Superman, Supergirl and Supernatural are close...but not quite the same. Our self-loathing Round 2 was a depressing entry into the night but worry not, it was our highest-scoring round of the evening with a solid 10.45 average. I am assuming our knowledge of these deprecating things is excellent, no? Also highly inappropriate answer of the evening goes to the Nirvana song title "My Head Hurts". Alrighty then! Round 3's average was 5.95, an impressive

On St. Patrick's Day Eve Remember to Wear Light Green
Sweet Adam

Don't adjust your microwave, it was sportsball bracket mania at quiz last night. In this instance there was an overload of sportsball on the TVs in the bar for instant assistance in our set of NCAA Basketball questions. Good luck to that one person at your work who never watches sports but wins the bracket pool because they picked their favorite colors or team name! We covered "Six Truths and a Lie," a nice way to cover a mystery collection of #1 hits...and one not-quite-a-hit song. I thought for sure Nirvana had a #1 hit with "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Only reached #6, though. Kudos for "Hollaback Girl" for making it and to one team for not knowing the Stevie

Can I Try Having "The" As My Middle Name for a Bit?

"The 'T' stands for the," says Chance the Rapper. Andre the Giant. Ivan the Terrible. According to several teams' wrong answers last night Chance is the baby of Jay-Z and Kanye. Eat your hearts out Beyonce and Kim - that's a real talented love child. Fort Collins relived its bread-throwing heydays and got to hear a Smash Mouth / Third Eye Blind mashup. Good on all of you for your accuracy in knocking that weirdo singer and his facial hair offstage a couple years ago. Great. Now I have that awful song stuck in my head again. Couple of other relevant notes: If you managed to regurgitate anything related to your high school Shakespeare reading

Bridges Vs Daniels: Pullman Vs Paxton Version 2
Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Matt

Hi, all. Matt here filling in for Adam while he’s off cavorting about at Geek Bowl. And what does one do at Geek Bowl if not cavort? I’ve been known to frolic from time to time, but I feel not being at Geek Bowl precludes me from cavorting. Perhaps next year.   I did a bad thing tonight. There are of course those dichotomies of easily-confused actors due in part to similar-sounding names, a la Pullman-vs-Paxton (rest in peace, Pvt. Hudson). Well one of those, the famed Jeff Bridges-vs-Jeff Daniels split, came to a head tonight. The answer to a bonus question was Jeff Daniels and the first answer I pulled read “Jeff Bridges”,

Your Idea of a Beer Name Is...Different from Mine

Let's be real here the real reason to invade Sweden is to get the recipe for those delicious meatballs. And as one team deliberately crossed out, their ice palace is not going to disappear in April because it's made of "broken dreams." Audio-wise I was shocked that it's been four years since Macklemore released "Thrift Shop"? That song still holds up pretty well four years later. It's the only song that can put "R. Kelly's sheets" and "pisssssssssssssssss" together so poetically.

I don’t want to look at the Wikipedia article and spoil it for myself just yet. I need to let my imagination run wild about what the Girls of Gilmore could be up to these days. I glanced at our ScheduleBot Twitter feed and fancy that, we are going to be at the Esports Arena in Santa Ana, CA in April.

I have to focus initially here on our Round 2, eight beautiful slowed down songs for your audio enjoyment. Lady Gaga’s haunting voice in slo-mo on “Bad Romance” just made it for me. And that round made it for a lot of teams, we had only two, yes, two, teams at the break choosing to save their jokers. Which made it really a horse race through the rest of the evening and upped the ante for a tie at the end. All of you did really well on the Tao of Pooh and the Dalai Lama 50/50 round, proving that with enough creativity you could turn quotes from either into an inspirational coffee table book.

Pros and cons of Groundhog Day 2017: Con is definitely a slight sinus cold for yours truly. I definitely do not want to that same day over and over again if I am mildly sick.

With eighteen teams it was definitely the Sudafed-enhanced highlight of my day. Our mystery round to start, even with the bonus clue at the end was a little shaky.
