Warning: Fat Quizmaster
Hunter

You know those rules we give out at the beginning of each quiz? Yeah, we actually mean that stuff. Especially Don't Shout Out The Answers. When we have to repeat said rule and give a warning of what will happen, you need to understand that we're not joking. Case in point: It was a fun crowd at Casey's tonight, but when people (both on teams and not on teams) shouted out an answer, I quickly stated (again) that was against the rules and that they are now warned that I would come sit on their lap for the remainder of the round if a answer is shouted out again... and they would not like it because I'm a fat guy and it will be uncomfortable for

BorderLands Of The Lost
Hunter

I love me some Before/After punny rounds. In my family, puns have always been considered high art. This week's version had you string together a film and video game. We had fun ones like Arkham City Slickers (Batman brings order to Gotham's super-prison with the help of Billy Crystal in cowboy drag) and Office Space Invaders (Lumbergh asks Peter to come in on a Saturday and shoot down alien spaceships). I didn't think of this one till just now, but Claptrap has to deal with the Sleestak: BorderLands Of The Lost. You're welcome. And you'd be surprised how many times I've been able to bring up that thing where you have three French cheeses at your Swingers party: frommage à trois.

Do I have to get a coon hound now?
Hunter

So I was taking my dogs out to pee before bed the other night. I take them out front of my house so they can run around and burn off some excess energy before bed. Right as I was opening the front door, I saw one of my cats (Morpheus) in the middle of the front walk. My dogs Gracie (a Belgian Malinois) & Pepper (a Black Lab mix) decided that it was the perfect time to chase him across the street. Because dogs.I heard a whole bunch of barking and then the sound of something trying to climb up the tree and not having the best of luck doing so in the short time required. That's when I noticed that it was NOT my cat going up the tree. He was still under a car in front of said tree.

Real American Heroes(tm)
Hunter

It's always a fun time when someone new to town comes in for Quiz. They get to meet new people, it creates a fun atmosphere welcoming in the newbies... and the regulars smell the blood in the water from fresh meat. Does this mean that Quiz Night is now more like Shark Week?I want to say "break a leg" to Sarah from *Quiz In My Pants* who is auditioning this weekend to be a Quizmaster! She's got the sass and the snark down, so I'm sure she will do well.I had a Quizzer ask me tonight if I pick my own music or if I use something like Pandora or Spotify. I pick my own tunes from my music library. I'm paranoid enough to not trust that there will be a working internet

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

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
