I Need A Shower Now
Hunter

Fan fiction, slash fiction, shipping... whatever you want to call it, it's awkward to read it aloud on a mic. I almost felt like I was back at a job I had *years* ago: audio book editor. Yeah, for a short time, I was an editor at a voice-over studio in Hollywood. I was hoping at one point to get on the other side of the mic and do voice-overs for a living. Hell, I still think that would be fun to do. But sometimes that text you'd have to read is just... painfully awkward.That's how we all felt about Round 4 tonight. For me, the question about Saved By The Bell was *very* awkward. Why? I was a closed-captions editor after I was an audio book editor. Our offices at that

Bad Australian Covers Might Be Worse Than Covers By John Meyer
Hunter

It was pretty much a consensus that tonight's cover tunes in Round 2 were bad. Really bad. They were so bad that everyone was debating whether or not they were worse than those cover tunes done by John Meyer last fall. It wound up being a tie. They were both equally bad and everyone had to drink extra hard to wipe away the memory of both.Tonight I also found out that nobody knows who the hell Rachel Zoe is. I was so proud! But then some teams thought audio clip in Round 7 was the voice of Janice Dickinson. And another team thought that Tyra Banks' voice was Heidi Klum or Kim Kardashian. Damn it! OK, I can kind of excuse the Heidi Klum guess. Project Runway can be interesting

Insert Witty Title Here
Hunter

Over half the teams tonight had an excellent first round: five teams had a perfect score! And two of those teams had four perfect rounds as well. Congrats to Frey Like An Eagle and Get To Da Choppa! for those great scores!It was disappointing that I played a Justin Bieber clip in the first audio round, but everyone was overjoyed when we all realized that in the current trailer for Zoolander 2 he is killed off. Yay! Now why can't we see the same thing happen for Sarah Palin? By now we've all become somewhat numb when she opens her mouth and a ball of crazy falls out. But like the Spanish Inquisition, no one expected the sheer volume of

Not A Good Time To Be 69 & British
Hunter

Wow, both David Bowie and Alan Rickman both dying days apart, both at age 69. Both were such great talents that it's difficult to register that they're both gone. A bit of Bowie trivia - did you know his first professional stage performance as an actor was here in Denver? He got rave reviews, too! Take a look at it here.It was a tight race among the top 3 teams tonight. We had a number of perfect scores throughout the Rounds. The Thin White Deatheater (First Place) had the most: three - Rounds 1, 4, and

Get your geek on!
Hunter

It's great to be back after a bit of a hiatus. I certainly hope everyone's Christmahanakwanzika was good! We had a great turnout tonight, so obviously we had some people anxious to get their geek on! We had some regular teams and some new ones. A hint to new teams... heed well the wise words of Wil Wheaton: don't be a dick! We really mean it when we all say "don't shout out the answers!"Other than a few shout outs, it was a fun first game of the year at Casey's. We learned that Interupting Cow is both annoying AND hilarious. I don't think I can ever listen to Spandau Ballet without hearing MOOOOOOOOOOOOOO as a replacement for the word True. This is now my new favorite replacement

'Tis The Start Of Saturnalia
Hunter

Yes, let's go old-school pagan ritual! In Ancient Rome, the Winter Solstice Fesitval, known as  Saturnalia, started on 12/17. This was a festival in honor of Saturn and was filled with feasts, gambling, and gift-giving. Oh, and public sacrifices. Because a holiday is just not complete without a blood-letting. And that, Virginia, is how we came to have football games on Christmas Eve.Holy Holidays, Batman! It was a pretty tight game right until the end when Dick-Punching Turd Cutters did something amazing. They waited until Round 8 to use their Joker... and they got a perfect score for that round! In doing so, they flew to first place with a 20-point lead!

'Tis The Season To Get Fatter
Hunter

I both enjoy and dread the holiday season. Throughout my life, moderation with good food has always been an issue. I think I gave my parents the first clue about this when the first word I said was "cookie." Nope, not any sort of variation on "mom" or "dad." Cookie. So it's always been a struggle to not wind up looking like Santa by the end of December. I guess it could have been worse: my first word could have been "croquembouche." So... we learned a few things tonight. Mainly we all learned that there are waaaaaaaaaaaaay too many renditions of the song Sleigh Ride. And we also learned that

PTSD: Post-Thanksgiving Stuffing Disorder
Hunter

Whether you call it "stuffing" or "dressing," it's sad when you run out. Thanksgiving is probably my favorite pig-out holiday. I just love the traditional Turkey Day offerings way too much. Even cranberries. In fact, just plop some cranberry sauce on my stuffing and I'll be fat and happy.In anticipation of the new Star Wars film, one team tonight had my favorite name: Kylo Ren & Stimpy. Does this mean someone is going to be saying things like "You fat, bloated, ewok!" during the film? Is it too late to get John Kricfalusi to do some character voices? While Billy West did an admirable job in replacing Kricfalusi when he was fired from the show he created, I never thought

Remember Summer Camp Sing-A-Longs?
Hunter

If you're like me, you wish you *didn't* remember summer camp sing-a-longs. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed summer camp up in Estes Park. It's a beautiful area, lots of places nearby for hiking and backpacking. But sing-a-longs? I don't miss those at all. I make no claims at having a good singing voice, but I do sound better than Leo Kottke. He's an incredible guitarist, but he likens his voice to "geese farts on a muggy day." That's what I was reminded of with Round 2. I don't know that you can really call Popup Chorus much of a chorus since they have no auditions, no rehearsals, and no attendance policy. So since most people don't know all the lyrics or melody (let alone any harmony parts),

Pumpkin overload has arrived
Hunter

You know, I do love the fall. I love the cooler temps, the leaves turning color, the anticipation of snow falling soon... but OMG can we tone down pumpkin everything? Don't get me wrong, I love pumpkin pie. Well, actually, I prefer a sweet potato pie, but anyway... But this market saturation of pumpkin spice everything needs to stop, especially in my coffee. Hey, I am not a coffee purist who roasts their own beans and must have it black and at 140 degrees. I'm more of a "yes, it's a hot candy bar in a cup" coffee person, but there are just some flavors that need to never find their way into my brew. Pumpkin. Egg nog. Mint. These are great flavors on their own but taste nasty in coffee. I'm

Not In Kansas Anymore?
Hunter

Hell, I've not been in Kansas for years. I grew up in Wichita and moved out here to Colorado right after high school. Of course after college I moved out to California, then back to Kansas, back again to Missouri, before coming back out here. I'm not moving to another state again! This is why I appreciated our round tonight called "We're Not In Kansas Anymore. Thank God." I soooo agree with that statement. Don't get me wrong. I still have family in Kansas and have many fond memories of my early days, but the current environment of "let's have Church and State marry" is a very ugly thing. Back in 2005 Kansas came up with a new state slogan, "Kansas: as big as you think." Um, no. Popular concensus

Trick Or Drink!
Hunter

It's almost the Halloweekend. I hope you've all sent out your Great Pumpkin cards and have your designated drivers all set up.Halloween is one of my favorite holidays even though I've not participated much in recent years. I lived in Los Angeles for 10 years and let me tell you, that city knows how to dress up for it. In fact, pretty much all of the movie studios and various costumers open up their vaults and let folks rent actual costumes from film/TV for Halloween. Of course you'd better have some deep pockets 'cause those can be some expensive rentals.Some of my favorite costumes from over the years were: a guy dressed up in a 3-piece suit, wearing a Viking-ish helmet,

Yay Thursday!
Hunter

This was a fun night. A number of new teams, some visitors, and a very close scoreboard.We had some visitors from Northeastern Kansas tonight. That's an odd area of Kansas. By odd, well, it's just not an area you'd expect to have a thriving beer culture. I lived in Lawrence for a while and they have one of my favorite breweries: Freestate. I must say that Freestate really opened up my eyes (and tastebuds) to the variety of brews out there. In fact, with Freestate in Lawrence and Boulevard in Kansas City, there's kind of a beer snobbery in the area. It's the only place I've been where the biker bars/roadhouses have Guinness, Harp, and Newcastle on tap. Who knew?There

Why Can't John Oliver Host One Of The Debates?
Hunter

John Oliver, in my opinion, is the proper heir of Jon Stewart. He should have been the new host for The Daily Show, but of course he got his HBO gig long before Trevor Noah came onboard. Oliver really has the same snarky wit and biting commentary that we need every day cutting through the BS that is American politics.Don't get me wrong, Larry Wilmore is great, too. It's too soon to weigh in on how Trevor Noah will evolve. But Oliver? Who else would refer to David Cameron as a "noted swine fellatio enthusiast", or Sepp Blatter as "Roger Goodell's asshole"? This is the kind Op-Ed commentary that we all need. And it was obvious everyone else at quiz tonight felt the same way because

Trilateral Commision and Illuminazis

So tonight we found out that Condi Rice is a member of the Council On Foreign Relations. But how does she fit in with the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderbergds? Is she helping to build the New World Order? Is she one of new Illuminazis? Can we go back in time and prevent the entirity of both Bush regimes? Should we just go look at one of the worst-designed websites around (infowars)?The only thing we really found out was that the Condoleeza Rice question might've altered tonights rankings if everyone got full points on it. I'm sure someone can work that into some kind of conspiracy theory. Let's see if we can also add in the Pope, Rush Limbaugh, the hemp industry, Kevin McCarthy,

Cum Again?
Hunter

Yes, we're all 15-years-old at heart. That's why we had a round based on la petite mort, ejaculation. For some reason, in French, it's referred as "the little death." And that's why we had some funny answers when people didn't know the real ones during Round 4. Examples: Mrs. Cream. Nutbuster. Salty. Quicky. Harry Jizzmaster McGillicudy III. You get the drill.In Round 6 we got a reminder that Hugo Weaving, probably best-known these days as Elrond from the Lord Of The Rings movie trilogy and Agent Smith in the Matrix trilogy played a drag queen in Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert (as well as some music videos promoting the film).
