The Blue Screen Of Death
OwenBallard

Ladies and gentlemen of Fuzzy’s Tacos, I must say that it was an honor hosting trivia for you even though it was, by a wide margin, the worst experience in my long trivia hosting career dating all the way back to the summer of 2013.This experience might have been the wake-up call that I needed to finally migrate my 150 gigs of music to my new computer. The only thing that made the night slightly less agonizing was when I got to reminisce about living in Austin with the beautiful bartender. We had a total of 9 teams play the quiz tonight but 4 of the teams only played a few rounds. Our third place team was JOHN IS DEAD TO US who finished with a final score of 70 points. JOHN IS

I was born in Clear Lake, and later graduated from Deer Park Schools. After high school, I graduated from the University Of Texas in Austin with a degree in Economics. After messing around in Austin till 2011, I decided to return to Houston where I continued to mess around till this day.

I like to consider myself a trivia enthusist/expert, especially with regards to music, Star Wars and the Simpsons (the latter two of the three I know more about than I do about anything). 

Come down to The Den Campus Pub on Wednesday at 7:30 for marvelous prizes, gift cards, and your chance to win some free drinks. 

If you are an idiot, then bring smart friends.

Fuzzy's Fan Fiction
WillSalerno

Facts suck. Here is a bunch of shit that absolutely didn't happen last night, in an order: Bonus Questions were answered with a minimum of dancing and invasion of my personal space. Turns out Third Eye Blind isn't as popular as I would have thought. Shots were consumed in a responsible, moderate manner. No one knew what "A.C." stood for in A.C. Slater. Please Clap were well-loved champions. No one took team pictures again. I remember other things. Fucks were given. Next week, wild card! Let's F up some tacos, yo.

Words are Hard
WillSalerno

My thoughts on naming your quiz squadron: A quizzer asked me last night what the theme for team names was. I told him we had none. He thanked me and proceeded to turn in an answer sheet with no team name. Hilarious. I enjoy team name themes. Forces people to be clever. But it only really works if everyone buys in, which requires everyone to be clever. Let's assess Fuzzy's Quizzers' cleverness. Post Partum Abortions: They won, but is this clever? I dunno, maybe if you watch the news. I don't. F- Yeesss!: Some sort of inside joke, so maybe. B Team Penis: Assigned to the no-name

An Inauspicious Start
WillSalerno

Whatup my Glip Glops?!   First, Gene Who Drank, Thank You.   Second, it is now officially Taco Time. Taco Thursday. The Age of Tacotron. Straight Out of Tacoton. The Hateful Ate Tacos. Mad Max: Taco Road. The Force Awakens to Breakfast Tacos. Something about The Danish Girl eating tacos. And, um .... Carol. Yeah.   WTFever. The best quiz in Houston (prove me wrong, jerks) is now served with a side of Queso because Hefley's has transformed into a Fuzzy's Tacos, and we have already owned the shit out of that bar. For those of you who joined me last night, thanks, it

Now It's Just Getting Weird
WillSalerno

But WiFi was working again, so that's good.   Local sportsball was on last night, which is usually a hassle because bandwagons of homers roll into my bar and get pissy that we haven't cancelled all activities to accommodate their sudden fandom.   That was the scenario I was anticipating when I got to Hefley's. Instead, I walked into the same building, but there were a bunch of Fuzzy's Tacos tables. Weird. And the internet was working. Double weird. Saw a bunch of new faces who were watching the Astros (All the Way!) and Texans (Nope.), but instead of complaining, they played the quiz. All the weird.   What

The Second Trickiest Question
WillSalerno

And by "tricky" I am implying "boring and dumb."   Round 3 posed eight questions whose answers were each either "zero" or "infinity." I don't remember the questions, really, but they were all about those words used in non-numerical contexts, which made my night because I have been working up a rant about the word "infinity" for a while.   Short version is that I am not sure whether "infinity" should be a word. Infinity is definitely not a number, and if you think it is, then feel free to go fuck yourself infinity times. Conversely, "infinite" is definitely a useful and precise word, an adjective broadly meaning "without limit". My favorite

Again With This
WillSalerno

So much blogging it hurts.     I know I am not good at pronunciation, but the whole "biopic" thing seems dumb. BYE-OH-PICK sounds inorganic, as if we were trying to prevent the portmanteau from evolving into its own word via semantic vocalization.    Looking at the Wikipedia entry for portmanteaus, I am just sad. Most of these words are abominations, surely slapped together by New Yorker columnists or NPR listeners listening to Wait Wait Please Kill Me. However, several are words that are not obvious portmanteaus. Let's look!   Modem:

Why no fucks?   We are in a transition phase at Hefley's, but quiz is holding strong. Internet, not so much. Tacos, not so much. Quiz, not so much.   Learned Handjob resumed their cheating ways by playing with 100 lawyers.    Tickle Party at Will's House did the opposite of cheating by informing me I had miscalculated their score, thus removing them from second place. You know what is worse than a nerd? An honest nerd. An honest handsome nerd. And his friend Matt.   Decepticons were thus correctly awarded second place, and because first place

WillSalerno

Flying is not fun.   Took a last minute trip home, only getting to the blog now. Sitting in the airport lounge, looking out at the city, writing a blog in a self-aware fashion, I realize that I am the protagonist in a shitty 00s romantic comedy. Problem is, I'm also pretty sure that I am the chick.   Any second now, some comfortably handsome charity architect for a New York magazine who is flying home to visit his hilariously foul-mouthed sister suffering from early-onset Alzheimer's will trip over a chair trying to avoid stepping on an adorable but yipping dog whose sassy minority owner shows up later in the movie and then spill

Quiz Is Not Over
WillSalerno

Stop not coming to quiz.   Rumors of our demise are greatly exaggerated. As usual, I hosted a mediocre quiz last night and, as usual, a bunch of new people showed up, recruited a regular, ate a rotisserie chicken, and won.   What else happened ... football starts next week ... I can't pronounce "Sharia" ... aaaand IDGAF.   I am going to go read that new Star Wars book. It is in continuity and I hear Wedge shows up.   Next week, let's fuck up some tacos?

A Boy Becomes a Man
Osman

Not literally, of course. That happened months ago. It was my first quiz! I sucked. But you know who sucked worse? My friends! MereBear, RaeLow, HerrerBear, and Captain Kajander were nice enough to come out and support me. It really puts into perspective why I put up with their bullshit. They played as "Team in First Place". They finished in fifth place. In other news, Hard Chargers bounced then came back, I played a lot of Kanye, and believe it or not France is not in the Southern Hemisphere. Winners of the night were a team of 2edgy4me individuals named "Osman's Cherry" to commemorate my deflowering. I'm sure they are very emotionally-balanced people that don't

What Comes After The Dark?

Tacos do.   "There are no assholes allowed at Hefley's." That statement never stood a chance of holding true as a rule. But after last week, it will now forever be true as a statement of fact. Hefley's will never again bear witness to your assholery.    I am not going to dedicate a whole long blog to Hefley's Quiz. It was a thing we all did, we documented it by experiencing it, and there is no point either adulterating or glorifying those experiences with some shitty blog.    Come September 3, I will show up at that same place and run the same GWD quiz that gets run at every same shithole on

Next Week

  Show up.   Look, I don't know much, and what I do know I can't really share. So you are going to have to trust me. Not the way you trust your doctor (I am a doctor, btw) and not the way you trust your mom (she's great though) and not the way you trust a friend (I am not your friend). No, I need you to trust me you the way you trust your drug dealer. A trust not of faith but of necessity.    If you have ever been to my Hefley's Quiz before, come next week. It is important, though it might not seem important at the time. But one day you will be glad you came to quiz next week. If you know people who have been to Hefley's Quiz,

There Was Quiz on Thursday

What is up?   There was a quiz on Thursday, and I was there. You might have been there too. I say that not because I don't remember, but I don't know who is reading this blog. Yes, that makes sense.   Five teams played quiz on Thursday, and the names of those teams are listed to your left. As the list indicates and I also remember, Houston Family Swim Team Reunion won! Congratulations guys and or girls who were on that team.   Rob wore a hat at quiz. That is another memory I have from remembering, not from the pictures someone or I took.   Round 2 was a music round. I played 8 clips from 8 different songs and

    Let's catch up.   What did I miss? Seems like Laura, Jay, and Stef managed not to drive you all away, so I guess that is good. In fact, turnout was higher last night than it has been in a while. Is it because you knew I was returning or because you assumed I had died? If the former, then thanks! If the latter, then fuck off, you can't kill me.   What did you miss? I was in DC for work, and then before that I forget, and then before that I don't care.    What did people who didn't come to quiz last night miss? Sgt.
