Training Day
JDB1138

Ahoy, geeks! Our fearless rookie, Aaron, took control of the majority of the proceedings last night leaving me to my own devices, which was mostly drinking, scrolling through twitter, and twiddling my thumbs. I was *this close* to downloading Pokemon Go. THIS CLOSE. I don't normally get to experience quiz from your vantage point; Is that what we really sound like? If so, yikes! Also, I don't know how you all feel, but some of the language in the quiz is PROBLEMATIC. Just give us the questions and answers, fellas. No need to make things so crass! *adjusts neckerchief and likes a Steve Doocy tweet*

Me No Talk Good
JDB1138

Ahoy, geeks! Man, I had myself a time last night, let me tell you. I found out, despite reading and understanding before the quiz, that when it came time to say it in a microphone, I totally forgot how to pronounce "emeritus." Right now, I'm saying it to myself and it totally sounds good. Emeritus. But put a microphone in my stupid face and I'll make it sound like I've never spoken the English language in my life. That's what I get for going to a for-profit college! That and thousands upon thousands of dollars of student loan debt. Everything is AWESOME! Actually, everything is not awesome. We're in a spiral of racism, violence, and death, but at least there's Pokémon!

Random Thoughts on Independence Day
JDB1138

Ahoy, geeks! I hope you all enjoyed your Independence Day. I'm pretty sure it wasn't just me, but was anyone else dragging ass at work yesterday? I'm don't think I'll ever recover from that three-day weekend. Go on without me. I'll just shuffle off this mortal coil. I had some thoughts on the 4th of July. We're all half-assing it this week at work; why should this blog be any different? -#RealTalk: do you think Joey Chestnut be shitting out whole hot dogs right now? -Do millennials celebrate DEPENDENCE DAY? ROFL!!!!! Seriously, going to school costs a billion dollars now and Social Security is a myth. -What person in their right mind thinks Liam Hemsworth

Joey, Do You Like Quizzes About Gladiators?
Matt

Hello, quizpersons of C.B. & Potts! It was good to be back in the saddle at my old stomping grounds, if only for a night. I don't think too many ears were bleeding once my volume-control muscle memory kicked in...right?   Tonight, we made sure everyone could pass the third grade again, hosted a 50/50 showdown between two former giants of European civilization, and took off for a round featuring films with scenes on big ol' jet airliners. Mile High Club, indeed!   We had teams who were down on themselves and ended up doing work, teams who showed up late but kept the spirit alive regardless, even teams who wanted to spoil 48-hour

Playing with the Boys
JDB1138

Ahoy, geeks! Allow me to introduce myself. I am just your average straight white male. I don't know what it's like to be caught driving while black. I don't know what being called a homophobic slur feels like. I also have no idea what it means to be a woman walking alone at night. These are just a few examples; I could go on, but you get the idea. I can do all these things with impunity. For me, life is basically like the volleyball scene in Top Gun. I don’t mean for this to come off as bragging. I recognize my straight white male privilege and think others should do the same, particularly those who are

Your 2016 Colorado Rockies!
JamieAnderson

Tonight I had a team called Donald Trump Chugs Cum, and I declined to read their name. I get the sentiment - I really, really do - but I feel like a name like that has some inherent homophobia/sexism to it that I just can’t get behind. What’s so bad about chugging cum? Donald Trump is terrible; chugging cum would actually be a point in his favor. Yep, I’m the feminazi fun police, and I’m coming for you. I got super distracted during rounds 4-8 because of the Rockies game. To paraphrase the immortal words of Shannon Sharpe, someone call the Denver Police Department, because they are murdering

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.

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

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.
