Fantastic Deaths And Where To Find Them
Major Tom

Last night's Round Seven gave us clips from people who the editors apparently wish death upon. I'm pretty sure that Adam Sandler was a joke. He's annoying and not funny (except in "Happy Gilmore"), but wishing he was dead? I doubt it. Anyway, there has been some talk about hw brutal that round was. People seem to think it's wrong to wish death on people. I, for one, do not wish death on Roger Goodell or Paula Deen. Not even Bill Cosby. That man made me laugh so hard for years. Say what you want about him, he enriched a lot of our lives for a long time. The clip included in the round was from his dentists routine on one of the first cassette tapes I ever owned. My family used to play his tapes

I miss the heat already.
Major Tom

It's finally too cold to sit outside during Quiz. You asked for this. Everyone has been complaining all year about how hot it's been. Well, here you go. It's cold. I hope you're happy. I'm not. There's a reason why I live in Arizona. I hate cold. I hate cold mostly because I hate wearing layers. Anything more than a t-shirt, and I feel like I'm suffocating. I've already knocked over three drinks with my stupid jacket sleeves. Well, at least I'm not spending money on air conditioning anymore. A Quizmaster from Seattle posted a question yesterday on the Facebook page for Quizmasters. He asked if any of us who had been hosting Quiz for years ever thought about regular teams who used to

I've got nothing else to say.
Major Tom

You may know that I have three jobs. I have the main one that pays the bills as a high school history teacher. I have this one, that doesn't, unfortunately, pay the bills, but does give me a little extra cash and a lot of enjoyment. And I am a video jockey on Heavy Metal Television. Last weekend, I went to the Fourth Annual Heavy Metal Television Awards in Phoenix. I was hanging around with guys like David Ellefson from Megadeth and Mick Brown from Dokken all night, watching bands play, and trying to rid the world of whiskey, one glass at a time. It was a lot of fun. Then the awards part of the night came up and I got the award for Best Video Jock. I went up on stage and received my

You're fired! And Force-choked!
Major Tom

We had a monster crowd last night. It's good to see. I suppose I have job security on my second job. Thanks to the events of this Tuesday, my primary job may not be so safe. Of course, the flip side of that coin is that there are a ton of answer sheets to grade, pictures to take, and people to generally be friendly with. I try my best to spend a couple of minutes talking to every team. I like to think that's part of what makes people feel welcome and want to keep coming back. I could be wrong. Maybe you're all thinking, "Geez, I wish Tom would shut up and move this Quiz along." You can't please all of the people all of the time, as a previous President (who actually was qualified for the office)

What if the Cubs had left early?
Major Tom

Scorekeeper Dini had ebola last night. (Or some other horrible tropical disease, I'm not really sure.) She called up a temporary replacement for the evening. Jeff the Chemist. Some of you may have heard of him. He's been a Quizzer since I first started quizzing at Club Congress five and a half years ago. He was the guy to beat at Congress, and he only rarely got beaten. He's now a regular at my other venue, and his team regularly wipes out the competition. He became a Quizmaster this year, although he unfortunately got assigned a loser club that folded rather quickly. Jeff is a really smart dude, who knows a lot about a lot of things. The only part of the whole Quiz process that he isn't good

Halloween needs to be a federal holiday.
Major Tom

Well, that's it, folks. The end of another October of Quizzes. I'm sure you don't all get as excited about Halloween season as Scorekeeper Dini and I do, but you should. We gave away a ton of extra Halloween-y prizes and got to wear all our horror themed shirts. Unfortunately, the day itself is on a Monday this year. That should be changed by an act of Congress. Halloween should always be on a Saturday. At the very least, it should always be on a Quiz day. A day that important deserves better than a Monday. The funniest thing that happened last night was during the round on Islam. The answer to Question 1 was obviously Muhammad. One team yelled out a question. "Can we answer with a

You think Congress is gridlocked?
Major Tom

As a kid, most of us could simply not wait to start driving. I loved driving once I finally got my chance. Years later, I hate it more than just about anything. High gas prices, stifling traffic, construction, predatory cops looking to give tickets in order to raise revenue, potholes, idiots on the road doing their best to run into you. The whole thing is just maddening. So, last night, I left really early for Quiz. I wanted to have time to leisurely eat a meal before Quiz began. I also had this stupid thing I wanted to do with the music. I wanted to play all of "2112" by Rush, which is a 21 minute song. I don't know why, I just did. So, I left with plenty of time to do those things. I drove

Should I bother to look up Lana Del Rey?
Major Tom

Last night's Visual Round had drawings of celebrities that you had to identify. One of the celebrities was Lana Del Rey. I would not recognize Lana Del Rey if she came up and sat in my lap, but apparently, she's a singer. One team identified that picture as Scorekeeper Dini. Now, not having any idea who Lana Del Rey is, I have no idea whether Dini looks like her or not, but taking a second look at the drawing, it really did look like Dini. I think she needs to figure out a way to use this. We had a huge crowd last night. It's always difficult to get through everything by 10:00 with a crowd that large, but we do our best. One of the things that makes it difficult is that with so many

Bye, IPAs! Don't let the door hit you in the ass!
Major Tom

It's October, and that of course is when all the spooky, scary, and weird stuff traditionally comes out. It's the time for The Walking Dead season premiere, for horror movies on TV at all times, for haunted houses and corn mazes, and for decent temperatures in Arizona. But here's what's really important about October showing up when you work in a bar. THe stupid IPAs of summer go away! Who decided that IPAs were where it's at anyway? They're pretty terrible. The arrival of October means the beer menu changes to ciders and stouts and porters (with or without pumpkin), and dark ales. It makes me enjoy drinking again. Of course, that might not be such a good thing. Being October, it's

I'm glad nothing blew up last night.
Major Tom

Ever have one of those days? As you know, I have two Quiz venues. One of them is always teetering on the edge of disaster. The other is a well-oiled machine. Dini and I love them both, but if there is going to be one of them that has one of those days, it's not going to be the Crown. Except that this week, it was the Crown. I got to the Crown a bit late, and found that the place was absolutely packed. September typically gets a little sparse, and last week was no exception. I was amazed to see that we had a big job in front of us last night. So, we start to set up, and the extension cord we use was missing. The staff found a different one, and we hooked everything up, only to find that it

Hey...it could be worse.
Major Tom

I took the afternoon off, hoping to get on the road to L.A. early enough that I would not be driving long distance at night. It didn't work out. Here I am, sitting at home, long after I wanted to be on the road, writing this Blog. I'm heading out to see a two day metal festival this weekend, which all three of the people I was supposed to go with backed out of. Black Sabbath is headlining tomorrow night in one of their last shows ever. I could not possibly miss it.

Twice a year, you'll have to excuse my screw-ups.
Major Tom

I am a consummate professional. You know that. However, even the best of us have "one of those nights". If you've been quizzing with me for any amount of time, you know that twice a year, I have to stay super late at school for parent-teacher conferences, then haul ass straight to Quiz. I wasn't sure if parents were going to show up this time, since it's my first year teaching high school instead of middle school, and pretty much everything is different. Instead of having meetings with the team and deciding which kids were our biggest problems, and then contacting their parents and telling them to come in, and then teaming up on them, in high school apparently we just sit and wait and see

My advice: Start a band.
Major Tom

If you've been one of my Quizzers for any period of time, you probably know that I was in a ska-punk band for many years. The band was called Troy's Bucket, and we released three albums, went on tour a few times, and were pretty big around Arizona and a smattering of other locations for quite a while. Scorekeeper Dini plays our music during scoring breaks sometimes, and our albums can usually still be found at Zia Records in Tucson, Phoenix, and Las Vegas. We even have a music video, which you can probably find on YouTube. So, it's been about three years since we played our last show. It was a crazy show at The Hut downtown. Oh, by the way, the tiki head in front of The Hut? My band played

Billy Mays here for the McChicken Sandwich!
Major Tom

Team names sometimes amaze me. Usually, you get a few teams who always use the same name, a couple that use some inside joke that no one else gets, a couple newbie teams that use some way overused name that they think is hilarious but no one else does, a team or two that names themselves something about how they're bad at coming up with team names, and a whole bunch that have jokes based on current events or current Internet trends. After hearing about the Internet video with the McChicken sandwich, I figured I would get a bunch of McChicken names this week. Nope. None at the venue I play at, none at the venue I host on Wednesdays, and only one last night. Very unexpected. If you don't know

Welcome to my nightmare
Major Tom

I don't know if I've ever mentioned this before, but I'm a pretty big karaoke fan. The problem is that I have a fairly low voice, and most of the rock singers in the karaoke books have very high voices. I don't listen to much music that isn't rock, and I skew toward hard rock, heavy metal, and punk. The karaoke guys usually don't have that much of that sort of thing. One artist I've had a lot of luck with is Alice Cooper. I've been a huge Alice Cooper fan since I was a kid. I remember seeing him host The Muppet Show. I always wanted to run into him around town, since I grew up in Phoenix, his home town. Just about everyone I went to high school with met him at random, but I still have not.

The best laid plans of mice and men...
Major Tom

Many of you have been asking me how I am enjoying my new job teaching high school. I am really enjoying the kids. They make me realize I should have stopped teaching middle school years ago. I like my coworkers a lot. I like the high school environment, with lots going on all over the place. However, I'm totally exhausted, as I have three courses I have to teach, and of course they are all new to me. I'm not getting as much sleep as I should, and I can't seem to get very far ahead in my plans. I wanted to get Quiz finished by 10 and get home at a decent hour so I could get some school work done and then get a good night's sleep. Of course, with that in mind, something went wrong with my mixing
