Let's Give Ben Grief!
Hunter

For some reason, Ben's family and friends decided it was time to rag on him a bit by dividing into multiple teams and using his name in their team names. I presume it was because his birthday is this Saturday. Since it's Ben's birthday, I decided I had to get in on the harassment and give him a special prize from the GWD swag box. Because his parents, sister, and friends were here, it had to be something fairly inappropriate: a little book entitled I DATE A HOOKER. It's a minor detail that he's not old enough to date one at this point in time... not that he would... or at least not that he will admit.So what's everyone's plans for Beer and Fireworks Day? Me, I'm just a boring

The Day After The Deluge
Hunter

OMFGBBQ! Coming home from work yesterday was like being in hurricane (or so it seemed to me). Huge hailstones pelting my car, rain so dense I could barely see 25 feet in front of me, and winds so strong they blew this huge tree down on 6th near Josephine. I almost hit that tree because I couldn't see it until I was almost on top of it. And then most of the major streets turned into rivers because the storm drains couldn't keep up with all the rain. Frankly, I'd rather deal with snow.Of course I may change my tune once January comes around. No, on second thought, I don't think I will. When it starts hitting the 90+ degree range, I really want that snowy weather. Yeah, I know

Loud, Drunk & Confused Is No Way To Go Through Life
Hunter

It's always fun when folks visiting from out of town come to Quiz with us. However, if I may be so bold to suggest... It's probably not a great idea to get so drunk as to not understand the questions. Also, don't yell across the table to those in your party because a) remeber the Rule about not shouting out the answers, and b) if your table is being so loud you can't hear the questions when you're sitting right in front of a speaker, perhaps those who'd rather yell about other stuff would be better off not sitting at your table? Hey, just some suggestions.Tonight I think we had the oddest selection of Round 2 cover tunes ever. Bjork can be hard to undesrtand in her own songs.

Roll Over Beethoven
Hunter

I was psyched about our Beethoven round tonight because it gave me an excuse to play a tune that's difficult to comfortably fit in a playlist. A ska homage to Beethoven *and* Bugs Bunny! Hare Tonic by Let's Go Bowling! Of course no Beethoven was actually played in the cartoon HARE TONIC. But that's a minor detail.   What else did we learn tonight? Well, there does not seem to be much difference between the names used in My Little Pony and that of porn stars. I'm afraid to think of the porn mash-ups of this... Coming Soon! (no pun intended) My Little Pole Dancers! While I've not seen it (honestly), I think my favorite porn title mash-up was Shaving

It's A Pun World After All
Hunter

I am one of those people who feel that puns are wonderful and should be worked into your everyday routines. That's why I really enjoy our Before And After rounds. Not only are our answers fun, but some of the guesses by the teams are just as fun. An example: one of the questions tonight was "Sondheim writes a musical about a pastoral weekend... with the gaffe-prone 43rd president of the United States." The most-common answer tonight was "Curious George Bush" (the actual answer was "Sunday in the Park with George W. Bush").   Now I don't know about you, but I really don't know that I want to see an over-blown musical by Sondheim about the Curious George books. That would

I love this place
Hunter

I moved back to Colorado 4 years ago this weekend after being gone for waaaaaaaay too long. Of all the places I've lived, Colorado has always felt like home to me. Even so, it really didn't hit me that I'd missed this place so much until my first day back and I'm driving west on Colfax and see the Front Range in the distance. That is a sight that I never get tired of (which is fortunate since I have to drive out to Lakewood every morning).   And since it's supposed to be a rain-free weekend (for once this month), I think it's time for a road-trip up into the mountains. Of course a LOT of people will be doing the same thing, so now I just need to figure out a less-traveled

Empire Strikes Back is 35? God I feel old
Hunter

Thirty-five years ago today, EMPIRE STRIKES BACK was released. I saw it at The Cooper on opening day (skipping classes at UNC). I miss theatres like The Cooper. It was one of the 3-synchronized 35mm projectors, 146-degree curved Cinerama screens. It was 35 feet tall and 105 feet wide, and had 814 seats. It was torn down in 1992 to make way for a Barnes & Noble on South Colorado Blvd. If you've been to the Cinerama Dome in L.A., it was a similar size. Unfortunately, there aren't any theatres with screens of that size around any more in this area. And, no, the IMAX screens at the theatre chains are not bigger. Heck, most of those are not even in a 16:9 ration (they're cropped). My

Bill Cosby = Pudding Pops
Hunter

Bill Cosby has been in the public eye for well over 45 years. He's done stand-up, voice-overs, television, movies, alleged criminal activity, but what is the one thing that instantly comes to mind when you mention his name (disregarding current allegations)? Pudding pops. Granted, I think we'd all love to be getting the residuals he's still getting from Jell-O, but it's kind of sad that pop culture will probably remember him best for Jell-O products. When I was in Junior High (hey, it's a midwestern thing), we had a school trip from Wichita, KS down to Six Flags Over Texas. Bill Cosby was performing that day and nobody from my class was interested in seeing him. Hey, I was geeky back

Japan's Porn Industry Needs You!
Hunter

Did you know that Shimiken (AKA Pornaldo, nee Ken Shimizu) is asking for "reinforcements" because he says there are more Bengali tigers alive today than there are male porn actors in Japan? Did you know that Ron Jeremy was originally a Special Ed teacher in New York? Do you know why male dogs lick their balls? Because they can. And speaking of celebrities, be they of theatrical or pornographic in nature, it's always a kind of awkward situtation when you meet them in public. When I lived in Los Angeles I would occasionally run into both types of celebs. Some were jerks, some were very nice, some were... unexpected. It's odd seeing Diane Keaton in line behind you at the Chinese Theatre.

Invader ZIM, But Not Venture Bros?
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

I see I have to assign more remdeial television watching again. Our Visual Round had human/robot pairs. One team only knew ZIM and GIR. How can you have watched Invader ZIM (which I love) and NOT The Venture Bros? For those who have not watched this excellent cartoon, what are you waiting for? Go set your DVR to record it off of Cartoon Network. And if you've not watched Invader ZIM, I advise you to remedy that as soon as possible. Now don't get me started about Archer. If you haven't watched that, well, I think we may have to get you to some sort of animation intervention. Tonight we learned that we need to blame Alfred Hitchcock for that awful Doris

Happy Birthday Nathan!
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

A special thanks to Nathan's team for bringing him in to celebrate his birthday with a dose of Quiz! Of course he may not have thought it was as good a present as a winning lottery ticket or birthday sex, but hey, be thankful you had friends nice enough to at least take you out for dinner/drinks/quiz. There was some debate over the answer for one of the Round 8 questions tonight. This is why we have the Errorogenous Zone. If you ever question whether our answer is correct, let us know about it! It won't really change the outcome of the scores for that night, but sometimes it's just good to vent. I feel it as my duty as a quizmaster

April Showers Bring May... Screw You, We're Colorado!
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

This is the time of year that we don't call Spring. We call it bi-polar. It was in the 70s last week, today we get up to 24" of snow in the foothills. I know a number of folks that will enjoy Breckenridge this weekend. There was one team name tonight that summed up a lot of people's opinions: Hoping For A Snow Day! A few new teams showed up tonight and that always makes for a fun quiz. The team scores were bouncing back and forth throughout the night and wound up with a 3-way tie for some teams at the end. We learned that both Tom Cruise and Ted Cruz are kind of... "off" (if you know what I mean). Also, there does not seem to be much of a difference

Do Southern Buttermilk Biscuits Rise Again?
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

In the Civil War, Robert E. Lee surrendered 150 years ago today. One would think that race relations in this country would have progressed a lot farther in that time. I certainly hope that it does not take another 150 years to get us to the point where the color of someone's skin is irrelevant. Going off on a weird sci-fi tangent... just imagine what would happen today if we wound up in a First Contact situation with some ETs. How would they react seeing the hatred and discrimination between members of our own species? What if all that violence winds up being redirected towards the ETs? I shudder to think of what could happen. On a lighter note, it was a neck-and-neck quiz tonight.

In Colorado, Nature Fools You!
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

It's the day after April Fool's Day, springtime, so of course Mother Nature decides to have it snow! Of course this will happen on-and-off for at least another month (of course it also makes for some fun spring skiing). I hope you hadn't put all your winter coats away. Tonight's blog is more ranty than usual. While I still like to rip CDs to MP3, I've been using Google Play's Music section to get a lot of tunes lately. I like that they give away a lot of free music each month and I like that they do not use a variable bitrate on the files (like Amazon does). They have a nice little program for your computer called Music Manager that will let you download your music all at once instead

Quick, think of a witty headline!
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

It was great seeing some teams tonight that haven't come out on Thursdays in a while! Special thanks to Two Nerdy Girls and Yo Ho Ho! There were some tough questions tonight. Only one team knew the actual name of the song Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah. Most confused the name of the song with its venue Camp Granada (which is frankly understandable). There were some interesting answers in Round 7 where we had to guess which celebrity had a short-lived talk show. I'm not sure how one would confuse Robert DeNiro for Emeril Lagasse. But what really threw me for a loop was confusing Tony Danza and ALF. I mean, that's a big insult to ALF. Now I have a craving

OMG Shoes
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Like most of you, I, too, had pretty much forgotten about Imelda Marcos and her closets full of shoes. I wonder if Kelly is any relation to her? I think our writers drank too much on Tuesday. And instead of sharing their bounty of booze, we get a round on shoes. Tomorrow is the first day of Spring, so I do expect to see a foot of snow in the next two weeks. You know Mother Nature is a bitch like that. But then again, that could make for some killer Spring skiing. This week was my cat Morpheus' birthday (actualy, we have the same birthday). He turned 3, and I turned a LOT older than that. He has, for some reason, decided he has to sleep in the crook of my arm at night. It's OK
