Google: Helping You Slack-off at Work Since 1998
JDB1138

Ahoy, geeks! Jobs are the worst, right? I mean, what percentage of the population has a job that they actually like? 2%... maybe? I hate those people. I hate them more than the job that I hate! Do people who love their jobs also love Mondays? Who the hell do these backwards-Garfield motherfuckers think they are anyway? They get up in the morning feeling refreshed and end the day with a sense of fulfillment. What a bunch of jerks! These are the types of people that you see on your company’s “culture video.” You know the one. It’s basically a 5 minute J.O. session on how awesome the company is (it isn’t) and includes a bunch of talking head interviews from

Nickelback Did 9/11
JDB1138

Ahoy, geeks! During last night's Round One (Golden Ages of Angst), we named three horrible things that happened in three consecutive years, and the quizzers had to name just one year out of the list. This was pretty much, like the life of a quizmaster, a list filled with sadness. Not included in this round are a few things that happened in consecutive years that still shakes me to my core to this very day. Even now, my hands tremble as I struggle to type them out; a cold sweat runs down my back. Courage, Justin. Courage. First, in 1998, Kid Rock released his 4th album Devil Without a Cause, featuring the single "Bawitdaba."

Being a Democrat Just Means You’re Constantly Deleting/Ignoring Emails from MoveOn.Org
JDB1138

Hey, friends! We’re friends, right? I mean, every Tuesday we hang out in the same place and, basically, have dinner and play games. We’re friends. WE’RE FRIENDS! What are you, like a size 14? Can you help me load this couch into my van? Yeah, just go ahead and get in the back. I am a Democrat and proud by default. That’s right. They say there are two things you should never discuss with company: sex and politics. Well, I say those people can go fuck themselves with a hanging chad! Wait… what? Most of the time, being a Democrat is not awesome, but I venture to guess that it is a hell of a lot better than being associated with whatever

Meet Your New Quizmaster/Pass the Pepper
JDB1138

Hi, everybody! I just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself in blog form, since we’ll probably be spending quite a few Tuesdays together in the very near future. I've been a quizmaster for the past 5 1/2 years, which has allowed me to hang out in some very cool venues and meet some very cool people. It's because of this job I'm blocked by Wilmer Valderrama on Twitter. Well, that’s not entirely true. Here's what happened, a couple years ago I wrote a quiz blog titled "Wilmer Valderrama is a Prick" and then posted it to Twitter. Fes found it and summarily blocked me. So, Geeks Who Drink

The Orcs Are Greased, Now Let's Get This Party Started
Matt

Greetings, quizpersons of CB&P! Tonight, we played dress-up in a sooner or later round, flashed bak to a few school-themed flicks, and consulted our inner neckbeard for 8 role-playing character questions. Quite the Gauntlet, indeed! Blue Hens dominated the board up until the final round, when Team Team’s bet-hedging paid off with a 26-point Joker that earned them first. Previous chart-toppers Slutsky’s Theorem and Rues Help Contain the Fun fell to those clever cloven folks of Hoof-Hearted, who pulled a similar move to gallop into 3rd by a slim 2 points.

Good news: Subbing quiz where I auditioned for this gig! Bad news: the millennium falcon of sound boards to operate this whole thing! OR That’s a hell of some HATS that I’m wearin’!
Wolfie

I have subbed many a quiz as well as blabbed questions and puns at quizzers at my regular venues, but was never sure if it would have ever come to a full circle to sub at the place where it all started for me when I auditioned for Geeks at C.B. & Potts Restaurant and Brewery here in Broomfield (September 16th, 2014 in case anyone who reads this cares, or is keeping track for some strange stocker-esc reason). But here we are! Being a quiz master and sub is just one of few hats that I have donned and still wear in my life. I am a former mascot for the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls, a father of 2 very energetic girls, an artist, singer & song writer, one
[ ...more... ]

I have had 3 venues as a quizmaster this past year, with one still being my home of homes (Echo Brewing). I also sub other venues when able and willing. Hoping to have more than one venue I host regularly, cause I LOVE this job!

Random facts and such about me:

- Been told by several people I have met through the years that I have a THICK and NOTICABLE Colorado accent! Yeah, I don't get it either!

- Turned down a gig of driving the band Twopointeight for 2 months on the Flogging Molly tour cause I was waiting to return to a job I was on medical leave from....Yup, I am still kicking myself, cause I didn't go back to that job until about 5 months later. 

- I wish every day that Courtney Cox would get over herself and allow for the Misfits of Science to be released on DVD in the U.S. At least I hear she is part of why it won't be released cause she is embarrassed by it.....I wonder if she has ever seen her show Cougar Town....THAT'S embarrassing!

- Went to a Model & Talent convention and met talent scouts, agents, etc that would make even Simon Cowell cry!!!

- I believe in ghosts cause I have experienced them, even at an adult bookstore I worked at once. 

- Wrote, directed, starred, designed set, did promo work, etc. for a performance art show I did with an amazing cast and crew for a student production in College. It was called "Freak Boy Speaks!"

- I am also an artist! Paintings (Acrylics), drawing, etc. I am also a writer, which kind of shows when I do my blogs. 

- Much rather meet celebs than to get their autographs or pictures with them.

- Worked concert security for a short time in AZ. STILL never got paid for that N'sync concert!!!! 

- Can put myself in the game of 6 six degrees of Kevin Bacon. 

- Finished up my final season as mascot for the 2010 WFTDA Champions, the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls. Will miss being Wolfie the wolf, but will continue watching roller derby!

- Worked on a cruise ship, where I got to meet people from all over the world, and met my wife (she was a fellow crew member, not a passenger cause that is against the rules!).

- Followed the Vans Warped tour for 2 weeks in 2004.....One hell of an adventure.

- Rode on an airplane at 1 a.m. from Phoenix, AZ to Dallas TX with a bunch of Wrestlers from "WWE", back in 2003. Included the Undertaker, Edge, Matt Hardy, Billy "the Ass man" Gunn, Eddie Gurerro, and many more.

- Once worked at the post office on my college campus. Ask me why one WOULD and COULD go mad from working at such a place. 

- I only like bacon or coleslaw when in the mood.

- Once performed with a group from Second City back in College with fellow Improv group members at the school. 

- Worked at Ed Debevic's in AZ. If you don't know, then google it or ask Jeeves (he is still around, isn't he?).

- Much rather be at a coffee shop with a pen or pencil and a journal or drawing pad than a laptop.....which I use as a Quiz Master! We get along......for now. 

-Aside from my mascot alter ego, I have another alter ego when I perform on stage with a band. His name is Elder Grimlee. He was once a logo for AZ band, the Elders UK, but now searches for his own band. But the alter egos don't stop there.....several more exist. 

- I was born 1 month late!!!! Remember, this was back in 1976! So a C-section was not an option. Plus, can you blame a guy.....FREE room and board!!!

- Mystery Science Theater 3000 is one of my ALL time favorite shows and when I am stressed, sad, or bummed, I just put on one of my MST3K DVDs and all is right with the world and no one dies! I also believe that GWD should do a MST3K themed quiz!

- I don't care for Netflix due to some issues with their service. BRING BACK MY BLOCKBUSTER VIDEO!!!!!!

- Find it funny that when I was about 19 years old, I hoped to have a full tattoo body suit by the age of 30. I am 39 and have 8. I am such a slacker.

- My Mom can beat up your Mom, Dad, buddies you street fight with and ALMOST threw down with the late Fabulous Mullah! I am her baby boy, so watch it, unless you mention sympathy for my being born late then you have won her over. 

- Made a collapsible dance cage with my brother for a roller derby girl from the league I mascot(ed) for (she DJed with another DJ and they wanted a dance cage).....still got the pictures! No clue what happened to it, hoping someone is go-go dancing their heart out in it!

Too Much Argle-Bargle, Not Nearly Enough Farctation
Matt

Greetings, good quizpersons! Tonight, we killed a round on 8-bit tunes, blew the truth wide open on Panama and newspapers, and matched a few movies with their starring directors. Snootchie bootchies, indeed! We had some strong starts with our introductory Recently in Stuff round, and everyone did pretty solid on the easy-mode audio round. The real test came next, as we subjected you to a ruthless 50/50 all about uncommon words. A few teams managed to get 6 correct, but there was no shortage of complaints for the teams that bet on the wrong pick for most of the questions. Now you see why us QMs love those rounds do much: they’re the ultimate equalizer! Scrappy

Alternative Round 1 Title: Ancestral Shit Lid
Matt

Why hello there, dear quizzers! Tonight, we let “the cards” call the shots, revisited some overplayed classics, and broke down the MLB’s player budgets. (1,400) Grand slam, indeed! It was an unusually close game throughout the evening, with Patty Duke and 3 Quizzers & A Baby & An Asian nearly sneaking their way to the lead, but never quite topping I’m the President of Iceland’s Accountant and The Transplants. Our top five teams ended up with a tight 7-point spread, indicative of the ferocity of the night’s competition. Honorable mentions

In Soviet Russia, Selfie Takes You
Matt

Good evening, gentle quiz folk of the greater Superior area! Tonight, we (mostly) bombed a back-and-forth conversation-style audio round, paired up a few actors with the roles they shared, and split the odds with a 50/50 round on frighteningly foreign foodstuffs. Two orders of elk penis with a side of squid viscera, if you please! With a sizable 28-point joker in Round 2, We Brought Our Tamagachi held the top of the scoreboard throughout the night, and seemed poised to take it all before those heartless monsters #PrayforBrusselSprouts quietly netted 2 perfect rounds and a “good enough” Round 8 to grab first in a mildly surprising comeback.

And the Quizzers Roared Their Terrible Roars and Gnashed Their Terrible Teeth
Matt

Greetings, Pottsheads! Tonight, we locked down a few lists, fooled around with some four-letter band names, and waded (legally) through a video round on silver-screen sharks. I plead the Fif, indeed! Overall, it was a pretty low-scoring night, usually indicative of a particularly tough quiz. But that didn’t stop Damn the Flamingos! from dominating at every score check-in, ending with a double-digit lead over Tom’s Car Smells Like a Bag of Dicks, who nabbed 2nd after multiple perfect rounds (despite some intensely specific vehicular slander). Honorable mentions to Thirsty - You Single? for a last-minute surge to

We're Beautiful, Like Quizzers in the Sky
Matt

Hiya there, Potts Players! Tonight, we endured an ensemble of foreign covers, cruised through a round on capital cities, and experimented on some questions all about physics class. Basic stuff, indeed! We finally figured out what the deal with the speakers was, and reclaimed our place as the rightful masters of the bar audiosphere. Hooray for adequately hearing Round 2 again (without me having to tell the whole place to shut the hell up)! Most exciting. It was clear from the onset that the no-nonsense folks at Fart Factory 9000 were in it to win it. And guess what? They totally won! Due in no small part to a craftily jokered 28-point Round 2, and two other

Double Cage Fight Deathmatch Deluxe
Matt

Good evening, gentle quizzers! Tonight, we rambled through a round full of "r" responses, matched a few awesomely wacky words with their pretty pictures, and switched up some famous story titles. By the end of the night, you could safely say that The Great Brain Robbery took place right here at CB&P! The stakes are always high when teams hold out on their Jokers, and tonight was no exception. All of you (save one) cautiously waited until Round 8 to deploy those suckers, and it paid off for Fat Boy Bonanza and Skinny Girl Bananas, who tied in final scores and were called to the front for a sudden death showdown. In the end, Fat Boy Bonanza

Future archaeologists are going to be spending a lot of time thinking about scented dicks in this scenario
JamieAnderson

The best thing about quiz at CB Potts in Broomfield is that it is close enough to my day job that I can convince my coworkers to show up. The worst part about that is that my coworkers then sit right in front of me and spend the entire evening asking me for answers, wondering loudly if other teams are cheating when they’re losing, calling me an alcoholic because I was drinking a virgin Bloody Mary at nine pm, and generally giving me a hard time (It’s like I never even said “Don’t fuck with the quizmistress”). When I arrived, I was able to find my way to the supply cabinet purely based

I'm an archaeologist. The Shroud of Turin dates to ca. AD 1300, evolution is really real but more complex than you probably know, and no, I don't have a particularly strong interest in identifying the thing you dug up out of your backyard that you think is totally a Native American burial item/pirate gold/Roman pottery. And no, I don't dig up dinosaurs, but I did once read this other book, by a guy named Bakker*, and that plus repeated viewings of Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones inspired adolescent me to get into the "boot sciences" as a certain Norwegian archaeology professor calls them. Now I'm living the dream. 

 

 

 

 

* The Dinosaur Heresies, by Robert Bakker -- out of date now but an excellent read just to watch someone with ideas exploding out of their head shake up their field.

Hello and good evening, gentle quizpersons of C.B. & Potts! Tonight, we analyzed some anagramic answers, upped our odds with a few 50/50 yes/no questions, and ran down a round on chase scenes. “Choose life”, indeed! It was a low-scoring affair at the bar area, despite some pretty darn easy early rounds. By the end it was anybody’s game, as most of you saved those Jokers for our final set o’ 8.  Blah is French for Black took first after producing three perfect rounds, with I’m Stuck on Duck Stack and I Walked 500 Miles for This close

Hello, gentle quizfolk of Broomfieldington! Tonight, we flew through a few fake band chart-toppers, got around to a sooner or later round on sitcom characters, and caught a few villains’ names before they plunged into various abysses. Dark-sided stuff, indeed! In a quiz with not two, not three, but FOUR 16-point rounds, anything can happen. Our friends at Dick Cheney Killed Scalia proved that by breaking the 100-point barrier for the first time in this Quizmaster’s tenure; major kudos!
