Gerbils and turkeys and cop movies, oh my!
Micah

A dandy time was had, during my 11th sesh filling in at Punch Bowl Social for our weekly Geeks Who Drink pub quiz! The Micah and Trent Show was back! There was much rejoicing.   This week, we discussed dumbed-down Edison test questions, song titles that form complete sentences, gerbils, celebrities turned into food art, the Ottoman Empire (etc.), cop movies, and random knowledge! Who knew "Juiced" was a book written by Jose Canseco, not O.J. Simpson? What a world.   In the end, Hopeless Semantics finished in third place, just out of the money; The Old &

Hey, everybody!

I hail from the great Commonwealth of Virginia (the Mother of Presidents). I've played piano since I was 3, I've been to 45 states, and I saw Letterman's "Late Show" live 20 times before it ended.

I'm on the Twitter @micahwhite and at Facebook /micahwhite.

Anyway, enough about me. See you at Nicolo's Pizza in Capitol Hill every Wednesday at 8pm, and Denver Bicycle Cafe each Saturday at 8pm!

Bards, Bees, and Chicken
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

Good Evening Geeks of PBS! Thanks for coming out to play post Easter festivities. I am sure many of you had a long day of eating ham, worshiping, hunting eggs, and hanging with families. If not, I am sure the staff at PBS were happy to feed you a Cubano, a couple of deviled eggs, and make you an egg and whiskey concoction.  You might have to find Jesus on your own. Anyway, the quiz was darn good. We talked about Shakespeare, bumblebees, fancy food, running, party music, and fabulous islands. It was solid. Kudos to Macho Nueve for holding a strong lead. The Draft Giraffe, we all loved your super cute team name. Also, I must give a huge shout out

Hello. Hope you are doing well. My name is Andrea. I became a Quiz Master straight out of college. My proud parents would like to be the first to tell you, this is the longest I have ever held a job.

I enjoy TV crime dramas, early bed times, mountain views, wandering the West, and hanging with my dog Joe. My day job is in mental health. I am afraid of aliens. I think human/ alien relations will not work well for either party. I have a degree in Cultural Anthropology. I hope enjoy my quiz.

See you on Sunday,

Backwards and Translate!

Good evening geeks of PBS. Thanks for coming out to play quiz and for your diverse and colorful sentiments for Google Translate. Kudos to those of you who can recognize Sir Mix-A-Lot through anacondas, pythons, side bends, and bread. Your hip hop love is true. Surprisingly, play, play, play, play and hate, hate, hate, hate translate well for Taytay. Not so lost in translation, were our teams who tied for second place: Churning Sensation and The Old and the Beautiful. Congrats to the gentlemen of Churning Sensation for winning sudden death. I think we are winners for knowing a bit more about the Statue of Liberty’s feet (broken chains) and that

It Feels Good to be King
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

Hello Geeks or Punch Bowl! Tonight, was run with lead female singers, London, and WWI. Maybe not so much on the last one. Kudos to those who are history buffs. We had some high scores tonight, Macho Nueve smoked the competition. However, both Kentucky Kinfolk and In Like Flynn held their own. Best team name was Nothing but Net Neutrality. Basketball and open net. Glorious. My favorite round was our royal round seven. As a King, I can say life is good. Also, it is funny how much people light up when they recognize lines from the Lion King. Seriously, people glow and smile and blurt out answers. One of the best parts

Knowledge is Power
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

Hi PBS!  Two weeks in a row we are quizzing together and it sure is nice. Anyway, you are a smart group. You have knowledge of Billy Crystal, Time Cop and all things Aretha. I am not sure what type of power you get with this knowledge base but, for I Used to be Addicted to Masturbation but, Jesus Helped me Beat it it pays off with a gift card. So that’s pretty sweet. Also, your team name came with some giggles. It is nice to see you all again. Macho Nueve just when you thought you were out, you took second in the final round. Nice work! As for the rest of you, there sure where a lot of ties in final scores. Also, not many of you are up to date on

Hello my Geeks of Punch Bowl Social! It is so nice to see your lovely smiling faces. Thanks for coming out to play and for being my quizzers. I missed you while I was away in the great state of Washington. Sunday nights were just not the same. Trent, I had to get my own wine! Congrats on your promotion to King of the Cage. Macho Nueve, glad to see you held it down in wins. Kids at the Short Table, quiz lacks when you are not around. Next time you go to Maine, will you please bring me home a pet lady lobster? I just finished reading this book called Sex in the Sea and lobsters are way cooler than I originally thought. Roll Over,

Swiping the Night Away
RESII

Macho Nueve edged out We Come to Denver for the Pizza by a mere point for victory Sunday. The two teams were running neck and neck the whole night and it came down to the very end. Shattered Blubber impressively placed third, while Cinderella Story took fourth. As quizzers learned Sunday, Tinder processes a lot of swipes per day. And by a lot, I mean a billion. The Tinder phenomenon is still wild to me: it’s basically a not-or-not app. And whereas once online dating had a stigma, Tinder has become so popular and so ubiquitous, it is seen as more than just a hook-up app (which it mainly is).

Ranking the Death States
RESII

Round Three was all about guessing the state where these people died. Which state had the best celeb deaths? Let’s take a look going from worst to best. 8. Virginia (Jerry Falwell. Nat Turner. John Wilkes Booth. George Mason. Martha Washington). The killer of Lincoln and a crazy prejudiced Reverend. Not a strong showing from Virginia.7. California (Estelle Getty. John Wooden. Eazy-E. Marilyn Monroe. Harvey Milk). In a shocker, California could’ve unveiled some higher profile deaths).6. Massachusetts (Crispus Attucks. Lizzie Borden. Emily Dickinson. Robert Frost. Paul Revere). Paul Revere is overrated. The best thing going for him is that his name has a

Things are becoming increasingly Dadaist
JamieAnderson

The Ludwig round was a good one, with both for a shoutout for Mad King Ludwig (a solid tile laying game) and a shoutout for Ludwig von Drake, who was not only Donald’s uncle, but also the great-uncle of Huey, Dewie, and Louie. Ducklore is kind of a big deal to me. Once I was applying for a job at the Disney Store and I was in a group interview with five other teenage girls. They asked us which Disney character we most emulated and why. Those boring snoozefests all said some princess or other. I said Uncle Scrooge, because I liked adventure and family was important to me. A month later, I saw all of them working there; I was unemployed. I 100% stand by

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.

Is ‘Voyager’ the Worst ‘Star Trek’ Series? An Investigation
RESII

Star Trek: Voyager was identified as the worst iteration of the Treks last night. But is it? THE CASE FOR Voyager was the fourth of five Star Trek series and took place in the unexplored Delta quadrant. The show featured a female captain (the straight laced Captain Janeway) and was driven by the motivation to return to home. It’s a fine premise. But to determine if Voyager is worst, we first have to look at the shows it is against. Enterprise. The newest show. I never watched it, so I shouldn’t say anything but it had Scott Bakula, so it gets a pass. Deep Space Nine. The most different of

I've been watching the Grammys. Decent show! Adele had her little flub... Bruno killed it... James Corden was funny.... Bey was Bey (and Blue Ivy was blue Ivy!)... fun time! And, speaking of fun times, another Sunday, and another pub quiz it was at Punch Bowl Social this week for some more Geeks Who Drink! We discussed songs and the songs they sampled, various religiions, answers containing the names of chemical elements, celebs and their famous exes, Borderlands-related things, and random knowledge! In the end, Churning Sensation had a pretty solid solo effort, finishing in third place! Finishing in the money in

Balloon Bombs of The Pacific Northwest
AK-47 (because I am loaded)

So as many of you know I have been traveling to Washington state for work often. I should say, the Pacific Northwest is really starting to grow on me. At first, I heated it because it was wet and cold and it was strange. Like I didn’t know where I was going or who anyone was and people were not bending over backwards to help me figure out which end is up. Anyway, I started making some friends. Explored Portland, wandered around Seattle, and checked out the fun towns like Sammamish and Issaquah. Hung out by a couple of lakes, ate a sushi burrito, went to Ballard. It is a cool place and If I have leave Denver, I would go to Seattle. My sister has told me a couple of times she worries about

I Went On A Blind Friend Date
Kelly the Bearcat

I know, I know. I’m not Andrea. You all didn’t have to rub it in by cheering the loudest you had all night when I said she’d be back next week. Jerks. I think I’m entertaining, though, so I’m going to tell you about my day. Quick backstory: my best friend lives in Maine, and recently made a new friend through her run club. It turns out that this new friend’s best friend lives in Denver. Exactly 1 mile away from me. So obviously we had to take advantage of this weird coincidence and a blind friend date was set up. Luckily for me, she likes beer. So we meet up at a brewery (I actually picked her up because I’m the best date EVER),
