Four-Letter Names That Are a Little Bit Different
Kavi Kardoshian

Tonight, Trifecta, we celebrated all things Goo. When the Goo Goo Dolls classic song "Slide" came on during Round 2, I was hoping you all would be as excited about it as I was, and you delivered. It's such a good song! It's no "Black Balloon", but it's damn near as great. As I mentioned during the quiz, "Slide" was the first song I ever requested on the radio. The station was 104.1 KRBE in Houston and I think I was about eleven years old. They read my name on the radio, which was extremely exciting especially considering they pronounced it correctly, and they also read the name Tara, who was apparently someone who had requested the same song around the same time.

I Love You But You're Freaking Me Out
Kavi Kardoshian

We had a packed one this week, Trifecta! Thanks for coming out and turning the place into a full house, even if it was a rather loud full house. I'd rather turn my speakers up than have an empty room and I loved seeing so many people get competitive about the quiz. Special shout-out to Pussy Power, who were all dressed very nicely and told me after the quiz that the reason they were dressed so nicely is that they had all just come from work at the DA's office down the street. What do these ladies do in the DA's office? Why, they work on domestic violence cases, putting shitheads in jail for doing shitty things. HUGE THANK YOU to those women for doing

A Swastika and a Pile of Poop
Kavi Kardoshian

Oh hey, Trifecta quizzers! This morning, while working from home for my day job, I finished watching the first season of Scream, the MTV series. You know, based on Scream the film series. Let me tell you. It's so hard not to watch. I'm not going to tell you it's a good show - by all practical measures, it is not. The writing definitely leaves something to be desired, and it's a bunch of mostly early-20-somethings acting, so they're not exactly great. One of them is. Most of them aren't great. But look: Everyone on the show is pretty, there's a ton of drama and people get murdered on like every episode. Plus these kids

Hey Trifecta! Thanks for welcoming the newly hired Jessica into the fold last night. Didn't she do a great job? Are you following her on Instagram yet? She likes bird watching and gardening. It's riveting stuff. Just kidding, she's awesome. Speaking of awesome people, how about that girl who got kicked out for being too drunk last night? Damn. She started out as a member of We Don't Even Know Each Other, which I suspect led to Patrick and Karen regretting having ever gotten to know her. How did she get so drunk so quickly? Apparently she did a shot

The Malaise of Watching Bad Television
Kavi Kardoshian

Personally, I think I'd like the first episode of Gilmore Girls a lot better if Lorelai decided to get the money for Rory's tuition by selling her body and maybe also some cocaine. I'm only halfway through the ep, but I have a sneaking suspicion that's not the way it's going to go. Who gets excited about going to an all-girls' private school? Anyway, we packed the house again last night at Trifecta! Seven teams, which may not sound like a lot, but that's all we need to fill the place to the gills. You guys played hard and put up some quite stiff competition as well. Edward Herrmann is in this show? I can't put my finger on it, but Alexis Bledel's mannerisms

I Can't Believe We Didn't Have Any Team Names About Pee
Kavi Kardoshian

We did have Failing Pile of Garbage, which is a related reference. And they ended up winning first place! Wow, Trifecta! Thanks for welcoming me back in such grand fashion. Not only was the place absolutely packed when I walked in; we had plenty of teams and a highly involved crowd this week! I'm not trying to offer any kudos to the non-quizzer who yelled out a couple of answers during the quiz, seemingly just whenever he paused his conversation long enough to overhear something he knew the answer to and despite my chastising him multiple times. But everyone else - kudos! It was a great quiz! I even got to share a pizza with our lovely bartenders. What a night. Lucy

Get It, Banana Slugs!
Mike

  I had the pleasure of subbing in at Trifecta last night, in place of usual QM extraordinaire, Kavi, who I can only imagine is traveling the countryside, missing her quizzes dearly. Trifecta is a small venue with a fantastic staff and a great deal on delicious pizzas. (Seriously, why isn’t everyone coming to this venue for $5 pizzas?) It’s intimate and easy to negotiate; even parking is easy on a Wednesday night. It was freezing cold outside (because Austin can’t make up its mind about temperature these days) so everyone who was playing was sure to be inside for the night. And that means that everyone there had every reason to play! It’s

I Don't Know What to Say About Westworld
Kavi Kardoshian

Westworld, you say? That show on HBO Go? Doesn't look like anything to me. Seriously, though, what up with Westworld? I watched the whole fucking show, every episode, with rapt attention. I didn't distract myself with my phone or anything else while I watched. I even paused when I got up to take a Totino's out of the oven. That's the kind of attention I only grant to the shows and movies I take most seriously. Stuff I've never seen before. Stuff that I actually care about. And I did that for Westworld. And what did I get out of it? A whole fuckton of confusion. You could hold a gun to my head. You could offer me a million

If I don't make it home this Christmas, find the grandmother from Trifecta.
AdamSweeney

Tonight, I nearly had my life taken by the most hostile grandmother I've seen since "Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead." For those wondering what the H I'm talking about, I was playing music at the very beginning of the quiz and Bea Arthur possessed came up and started cursing me out before trying to rip electrical cords out of the sound system, and finally grabbing my arm in an attempt to force me to turn the music off. Sorry, Nana, unless you have a candy cane shiv on you, I'm not turning the music off. Next time ask nicely, please. And enjoy the Werther's Originals. Sheesh. A couple of additional notes for those keeping score at home: 1) Muse is not a "metal" band. If

Never Send a Fall Out Boy to do a Radioactive Man's job.
AdamSweeney

I am a huge fan of movie soundtracks (I was listening to The Dark Knight score today) and so it was with much anticipation that I announced Round 2, an audio round where you named the artist and film they worked on. Of course, I was shocked that you knew so much about 21 Pilots being on the Suicide Squad soundtrack, but we're a judgment-free zone. Christmas is officially 10 days away. Allow myself to shriek with the realization I've done no shopping yet, and then remember that Amazon Prime is the gift that keeps giving. Does it look like I'll get a Kylo Ren doll for my niece or a Rex Manning Day shirt for my brother to honor Empire Records? Why yes. Yes, it does. If I get the Darth

Fact; Wham's "Last Christmas" is one the greatest, and most ridiculous, holiday songs ever. Cool? Cool.

But the show must go on and you all made me feel very welcome, and a lot of you are Red Sox fans! Bonus! Any fan of the BoSox is a friend of mine.  The Real Slim Shady definitely stood up at the quiz on Wednesday, taking home the 1st place prize. Now if only we had an 8 Mile poster to give them.

We started quiz off with a round which mentioned xenophobia, ethnic cleansing, and Brad Pitt. I mean, we did warn you it was all gonna be Gloom and Doom. Unfortunately, though, no Doctor Doom questions. This time. And then we had a whole round on Fidel Castro. So, we're all good on the controversial subject matter for a good while! Let's all just talk about how great Morgan Freeman is, or the nutritional content of fresh greens!   Now I'm really starting to wonder about those in-visible patrons of the diner in "Nighthawks." Are they hiding? Could they be incorporeal? Where the hell

The Red Jungle Fowl of Antarctica
Evan

The thing you don't tend to notice until you start to cut out animals from your diet, is how many unassuming products actually have animal parts in them. Hence your round five. For instance, most beer-y people have heard about Guinness having gross fish guts in it, and almost all vegetarian types are warned about gelatin early on. But I mean, Little Debbies definitely has lard in most their snack cakes. And shit, a whole lot of gummies and candies have some sort of gelatin. A lot of yogurt has it too. And if you don't eat animals but somehow still ingest their by-products, beware of rennet in cheese.

Pinto-- the most commonly refried bean, but not the best. I've had some refried black beans that would beat the hell from any pinto refriedness the world could conjure. But maybe I'm exaggerating. Because I love black beans. Love them.   By the way, Teddy Roosevelt got the first Golden Ticket that MLB issued. Because of course he did. He's Teddy Goddamn Roosevelt. Just try to tell that man that he can't get into your game because he doesn't have a ticket. Just TRY.  You couldn't, because he's dead.  But I meant when he was alive.

Yes, Let us get into the fact that I had a very TRYING day yesterday. Somehow it didn't even equate to the worst day of my life.

I only say that because 25% of you actually voted for that fucking guy. nearly 50% of America didn't fucking vote. So, in essence, y'all are a bunch of assholes too.

He took over the mic for a couple of rounds, mostly so that I could keep my eye on some of your goddamn shenanigans. That's right, goddamn shenanigans! All over the place! So many I can't even count! For instance, we had a quiz rivalry in the making, as two teams yelled jabs at each other from across the bar. They were good-natured jabs, I assure you, but that's how blood feuds start, you know!
