Gem Show? Check out my Family Jewels
Caribbean Joe

For those of you that have never experienced it, the Gem Show is happening in Tucson, not to be confused with the Jem Show which bombed in the theaters. The show started in 1955 when a few rock enthusiasts had a display for some school kids.  It went over well so they started doing an annual show, first at the fairgrounds, then on to the convention center. And now, like the rash that it is, it has spread to most of the downtown area and to any open dirt lot with room for tents.  It is a very interesting event, much like a large cat or car accident.  You want to see it, but from a distance without the possibility of it touching you or getting on you.  Not to worry though,

I enjoy long walks on the beach, scooter rides and zombies.  

I have a BS in BS.  I can BS in at least 2 languages and I can convincingly imitate a few others.

I enjoy any occasion to dress up.  I will go disco, zombie or Mandalorian if you give me a reason. 

I am Caribbean Joe.  Born in Texas, I lived in the southwest pretty much all my life.  A desert dweller's life for me.  

So I picked up quizzing after my friend and scorekeeper, Island Amy, found an ad and prodded me to audition.  The rest is history.  Loving the quiz and the people it draws.  If I am not quizzing, you may find me out enjoying Tucson.

You may also see me around town on my scooter.  Feel free to wave.

If you want to know more, stop by and quiz and meet me and I just might answer your questions. Hell I may even answer you truthfully.

Once you pop, you can't stop
Caribbean Joe

Tonight marked the return of the Maynard.  After a bit of a break we came back with a new and improved Maynard’s experience.  Last time around some of you provided feedback, and they listened.  So hopefully all of you enjoyed yourselves.  They plan on finding new ways to improve things and have us back out again.  So watch for it and we’ll let you know when we will be taking the party train over to Maynard’s.  Okay, the train actually isn’t a party, but you know what I mean.  Tonight Island Amy stopped by before quiz to hang out a bit.  While I do catch her weekly, I don’t really get a chance to hang out.  She

Find what makes you happy
Caribbean Joe

“Wandering through a city I’ve wandered through a thousand times. Realized I’m not very different than I was 25 years ago. Had pizza, played pinball, drank coffee and looked at woman. I’m 17 again. You never age past the year you realize what makes you happy and who you truly are.” –Michael D. Wise words from a smart guy.  There has been a lot of death recently.  Celebrities have been leaving us at what feels like a higher than normal rate, but then again, what is a “normal “rate? I’m sure that there is some math that could tell us that based on average rate of deaths by population along with amount of celebrities by population

Feel the Power of the Balls
Caribbean Joe

Powerball is over 1 Billion dollars, so of course that means everyone and their mother is playing.  No, really, I’ve been at a convenience store and there was some guy and his mother buying tickets.  I can understand why too, the thought of winning a billion dollars would be pretty damn great.  That is the kind of win that you would have to disappear if you won.  As they call it in some circles, that is known as “fuck you” money. It lets you say fuck you to anyone with power over you. Now of course I thought about it.  I would wipe the slate clean, take care of my family and some friends and then do everything I can imagine doing.  I would still

She let me down
Caribbean Joe

A new year has begun and already things are looking up. We were able to get in to the club. Hopefully a trend that will continue. As for New Year's Eve, I was a bit of a home body and stayed in. As much I wanted to go out, my girl said no. It's too cold she said and refused to turn over. So after a few tries I gave up and settled in for the night. The next day I started looking around for a replacement to get her going again. The one I found locally was too big, so I had to take her back and luckily found a good one online. A lot lighter than the current one and much more powerful. So once I got it in, I had to get her primed and it was a bit of a tight fit, but I got her wired up and voilà,

Baby Steps
Caribbean Joe

A new year is upon us and with that, most will look to make changes in their lives.  Resolutions will be made and quickly broken.  I have done it in the past and generally it is because we overreach on what we want to do.  Sure, lots of people want to lose weight or get a new job or take over the world, but we tend to misjudge the scope of things.  Start small and take your successes that way.  Conquer your home first, then move on to your neighborhood perhaps. Want to lose weight? Cut your hair, boom, weight lost.  Take off your clothes, boom, more weight lost.  What am I saying?  Well, much like Bill Murray in What about Bob?, it’s all about

It's Quizmas time! (come sit on my lap)
Caribbean Joe

'Twas the night before Quizmas, when all through the club All the creatures were stirring, but not due to dub; The drinks were all poured as we all found a chair, In huddles of friends that had all gathered there; The quizzers were laughing, no signs of dread; While copious beverages swirled in their heads; And with a fun shirt and a Santa Clause hat, I was ready to quiz you becauseits all about that, With a call on the mic we settled the chatter, I challenged you all to fire up your gray matter. And just like that we were on like a flash, But with so many twists, don’t be all brash. As we’re

1st place is how I’m Rankin/Bass
Caribbean Joe

Back in the 60s, a couple of guys by the names of Arthur Rankin, Jr. and Jules Bass came together to make magic.  They had a dream of making animated films and they went after it.  Not only did the come up with their own style of traditional animation, they developed their own stop-motion style.  They had round heads and bodies and they looked like dolls. They came together and told the stories of Christmas.  The first film based on the traditional song of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer premiered and it was love at first sight.  They had found the way and shared it with America.  Not only do we meet Rudolph, but we are introduced to Hermey the Dentist Elf, Yukon

So that time of year is creeping up on us. Christmas, Hanukah, or whatever secular version you celebrate.  I do the Christmas thing myself.  It is fun and we have always done the whole family thing.  There is a lot of happiness and fun to be had, but a lot of people do feel a bit of depression around this time of year.  There are lots of reasons for it too, but for those of you feeling it, pretty much any reason is valid.  I know and just want to extend a hand out there.  If you feel the need to talk or have someone to hang out with, I know how valuable that can be.  For those of you out there, make a little time for your friends, give them that moment to

Challenge of the week.  Wake a family member, SO, child, or roommate by telling them excitedly that it is snowing. Enjoy the reaction.  What better way to celebrate Thanksgiving?  That’s right, be thankful for the opportunity to mess with your kids and family.  Bring humor into their lives whether they want it or not. Because bringing humor into someone’s life doesn’t mean they need to find it funny. If you laughed, then let them know that you are thankful for the humor they have given you.

May the Force Be With You...Always
Caribbean Joe

The internet has really changed things.  Back when I was a kid, you’d hear a story or the paper might carry an article about a child or person stricken with a terminal illness and some drive to get them a million get well cards before they pass.  Sometimes we would all spend a class period at school making cards for said children.  Strangely, back then, a million seemed like a big number too. Now with the internet things changed.  Once grandparents and moms started getting online they didn’t do anything constructive, but they did start forwarding emails like crazy.  So campaigns that had long since passed got new life in them and get well

Can we vote to ban Beiber?
Caribbean Joe

What a nice night for a quiz.  While it feels like Mother Nature seems to have something against Tuesdays, we ducked her wrath.  It seems she is venting in other ways.  Justin Beiber is apparently back in the charts.  So where she gives on one hand, she takes away with the other.  So for every week of great weather, a Kardashian lives on for another week.  Sometimes it might just be worth it to have a week of torrential rain just to get rid of them. We would never be so lucky.  Think about that for a bit, perhaps we could come up with a chart where we could trade inconveniences and bad weather and the like so that we could rid ourselves of bad “celebrities.”

Marilyn Manson took my Parking Space
Caribbean Joe

Halloween has always been pretty special to me.  From dressing as Spiderman in my plastic coverall with a picture of Spiderman on it with a mask that was held on with a rubber band, to my own home built creations, I have always enjoyed Halloween.  As a kid, it is easy to see why.  You get to wear fun costumes of your favorite characters and people give you candy simply for existing.  What could be better?  Parties! As a kid, a Halloween party meant even more candy.  Then there was the weird period where dressing up wasn’t supposed to be cool and parties were for little kids.  Then eventually heads were pulled out of asses and Halloween became cool again.

Back to the Future can still happen

Today I have been beat over the head with Back to the Future.  Today is the day we should have flying cars, self-tying shoes, hover boards, and ridiculous fashion that only someone from the 80s could envision.  What was it about the 80s that gave people these crazy visions of flying cars and futuristic technologies?  We always seemed to have this stuff in the 2000s.  Thinking about it, people saw the space race go from a crawl to a run in 1969.  We then moved on to more and more, advanced aircraft and the Space Shuttle.  So by assumed advancement staying the way it was headed, we should have all kinds of awesome tech in the 2000s and beyond right?  What could

She was a super friendly southern girl with a super thick accent and a crazy laugh.  She enjoyed quizzing and after a while she wanted in.  So she made it happen.  We had good quizzes and even better parties.  Especially the time we ended up handcuffed to each other.  Happy Birthday ha ha!
