It's always one thing isn't it?
Caribbean Joe

Adventures in scooting.  So it was time for a fresh tire on the old scoot as the current one was as bald as I am. I had found a nice Pirelli that fit and took it on down to get mounted. Now I can do a lot of mechanic type stuff, but mounting a tire is not one of them. Well, okay, if I had the proper equipment, I could probably do that too.  Anyway, I dropped it off for servicing.  I run about with my daughter for a bit, and we waited for my tire to be done.  We get the call and go pick it up.  Looks good. So we stay busy stopping by stores and stuff and eventually make it home.  I go to mount my rim on the bike and something doesn’t seem right. The tire

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.

Bark bark, who are you?
Caribbean Joe

Sniff sniff. Who are you? You don't smell like a dog. Oh hey! You like petting me? I like that too! Want to see how fast I can run? Check me out! Oh, you and my pack member are doing that weird barking thing. That's fine I guess. Want to see my favorite toy? I like chewing on this one the best. It screams the loudest. I like it when my prey makes noise. Wait, I need to look outside and see if my mortal enemy is out there. Well either that German guy or any of those weird two legged ones holding big bags. What's in those things anyways? Probably things to hurt me or members of my pack. Ooh, they are sitting on my big bed. I'm gonna sniff this new two legged one and see what's up. Hmm, I catch

Meow Means No
Caribbean Joe

I have had the fortune of meeting a new dog.  He is a strange little guy.  His name is Ruxin and he is a mix of various dogs with a bit of a basset hound and some kind of herding dog I believe.  He is what you would think of when someone says the word “dawg.” He has the strangest attitude when it comes to the world.  At home, he is quiet and happy and likes to be around people.  He plays and enjoys treats and if allowed, will stare out the window or door for hours just keeping watch.  When he goes for a drive, he runs back and forth looking out the side windows smelling all that the world has to offer. Then he likes to stand on the center console and

Do you have a moment to talk about The Force?
Caribbean Joe

May the 4th is upon us.  A long time ago in a town far, far away, I found the thing that is Star Wars.  It premiered in ’77.  I was a mere 5 years old, but as soon as I saw bits of it, I was hooked.  This was back when you might catch a promo clip on tv, or maybe you’d get some newspaper or magazine coverage and get a picture if you were lucky.  There was no repeat viewings unless you spent the time and money to keep going to the theater.  VHS wasn’t a thing and DVDs may as well have been lightsabers because the technology needed was still beyond what most people could imagine. I remember being fascinated by all of it.  I would

Look what I found
Caribbean Joe

People believe some weird stuff, like whispering your wishes at night will get them granted or that Trump would be a good president.  Lately I’ve found a very entertaining genre to entertain myself with and that is found footage videos.  Lots of them are absolutely terrible, but there are several gems out there.  Lots of paranormal stuff and conspiracy theories tend to be the main focus of these films.  You do get some well-made pieces with good production and editing. They also tend to conflict each other. One person will post a video as definitive proof of ghosts, or aliens, or angels, or government conspiracies, or everything.  Some of my favorites are time

Time for a nature walk.
Caribbean Joe

Last night Island Amy made a stop by, taking a trip all the way from Arizona City to quiz against you all. She told me that they took it easy on you all and they were not up to their game as most of them were a bit fried from closing out tax season. Perhaps in the near future they'll come back to try again without taxes on their brains. Today as I write this it is 4/20. It seems a lot of people celebrate today with some extra curricular activities. Now I looked up the origins of this phenomenon and it is said to got back to 1971. A group of high school kids were searching for a lost cannabis crop and they set a plan to meet at 4:20 outside their school. This went on for a while

Destroy False Idols
Caribbean Joe

Last night I found out American Idol ended. Which is a good thing. Sadly not all of the other shows are following suit. I do recall watching the show a long time ago. It was mildly entertaining and an interesting novelty at the time. I was told a few times I should try out. I don't give myself that much. Plus the "auditions" had all kinds of crazy restrictions. So unless you were marketable, no amount of talent would get you on, unless you were a one liner that could be played for laughs. And apart from Kelly Clarkson, I can't remember any of the winners. Now little known fact here in the states, but Simon Cowell is quite reviled in his home county of England. He has been accused of "slitting

A Chemist you say?
Caribbean Joe

Tonight we brought out Jeff the Chemist to try his hand on the other side of the mic.  For many years, he has been considered a force to be battled and vanquished.  Many a time I had heard his name used in vain.  So many sought to take him down and some did, but now, he will be holding charge over quiz.  Will he do well? I think so. Some don’t realize that Jeff has been a quiz goer for as long we have had it in Arizona.  Along with Jean Luc, he has been with us from the start, so it was deifinitely about time to bring him on.  After last night, I think he has the chops, (well not facial hair wise).

He did what?
Caribbean Joe

It’s not often you see someone get a blow job in public, and even less often when he puts his hands behind his back and swallows the whole thing in one shot. It’s usually considered “illegal” and an act of “public indecency.”  Somehow if it is your birthday and in a bar full of consenting adults, then it is okay. Last night we had just such an event, and he took a whole shot to the mouth and laughed afterwards.  Now what always struck me as odd is that this shot was created to be a joke, a way for men to belittle each other in public, or a way for someone out cruising to advertise their availability? The world is a strange place.  So if you

We shall call her...

What’s in a name?  Well for a quizmaster it can be a lot.  It tells quizzers a little bit about you.  Often  it is something that you might bring with you, a nickname from childhood, or some name you picked up in your circle.  No matter the origin, it is important to have. Now there are a few quizmasters that I have named.  Rouge 4, Tom Servo, Jean Luc to name a few.  Sometimes a name is instant. It just jumps out and grabs you and it is good. Then there are the other names, the ones that take a while to coalesce.  They are like a block of stone telling you what they are meant to be.  So now we welcome the newest of the flock, a born performer,

Tom Waits for no one
Caribbean Joe

We had some random foreign song covers and one that caught my attention was the Diamonds cover by Florina Perez as sung in French.  Now the song is a good song, and a lot of people won’t listen to it because Rhianna put it out.  It was written by Sia, and she does a crazy good version of it. She makes it sound almost haunting.  There is also another cover by Steam Powered Giraffe that really makes the song listenable.  Now one cover that I think

International Women's Day was upon us. Hopefully you took some time to think about the women In your life and where you would be without them. You probably wouldn't exist seeing as you usually need an egg and a sperm to make a baby. Well unless you budded, and if you did, then welcome to Earth. Where I do my day job type stuff, we have lots of historical items and books about women in aviation, so even back when "women had their place," there were pioneers making new roads for women to take. There were mechanics and manufacturers and even pilots. Through their willingness to step up and do things they "weren't supposed to do," wombs can be and do lots of things. Granted we still have room

Idiocracy, One Step Closer
Caribbean Joe

So many things going on today, first and foremost is the Super Tuesday voting. While we are not part of it as a state, I did see plenty of people being vocal and spreading awareness to those who are voting today.  Now it is pretty clear that Trump is worse than cancer and shouldn’t be in charge of a lemonade stand, much less a whole country. He spits on his enemies as well as his “friends”, and the guy behind him is almost as bad.  Sadly the DNC decided long ago that Hillary was going to be their candidate and now that Bernie has so much momentum, they are trying to twist any bit of data to make it look like she still has a lead.  Thankfully a lot of people

And Geek Bowl is done for another year. Thanks to the Tucson people that made the journey to be there. This year was amazingly spectacular and it is only getting better. Seeing Eugene Mirman up close and personal as well as the crazy group that call themselves Metalachi were some of the high points. Being around the people is really the best part of it all. Now I normally don't like anybody, but the people really make the show. Quizzes from all around and my fellow quizmasters from everywhere are what really do it. To be around that many people with a singular focus to have fun really drives me. It is like a drug you can only find there. Each weekly quiz is like a tiny dose, it keeps me going

Once a year I go on a pilgrimage.  Where I go is not fixed.  It moves, calling to me wherever it goes. The first time I heard the call it was in Denver.  I went and there were many strangers.  They took me in and showed me a whole new world that I was to be a part of.  I met people like me, that are in turn people like you.  Geeks of all types.  I was quite happy to be among them and I finally had something that I was happy to be a part of.  I then followed the call to Austin.  For 3 years, it made its home there.  I learned of the city and found a positive vibe that made me feel comfortable.  Thanks to these events, I can say I have performed
