Will’s Weekly Rush Hour Recap
WillSalerno

It was v. good, obvi. Now, quiz blog. Rockets in 6 won, but I didn’t let them change their name. THAT’S WHAT YOU GET. Decepticons second, and they won the audition pre-round, so we did shots of Unicorn Sweat. Thanks, LE. The Queen is 90, Prince is Dead took third and it too far too soon. Learned Handjob, shouldn’t you know how by now? Snitches get Stitches

Hey, You're Not Our Real Quizmaster
Tygrr

Sorry to catch you guys off guard, but Will had something come up at the last minute that he had to take care of. Rumors range from him having to dig a well for a village in Africa, taking photos in Japan after the devastating earthquakes, delivering a twin calves all night long, and being a bouncer for the Democratic debate in Brooklyn last night. I suppose we'll just need to watch CNN to find out.  I hope y'all didn't mind me dropping in. I saw LOTS of familiar faces, so I felt like I was at home in a way. I'll happily host for y'all again. I mean there's cool food (I had the beef fajita nachos), cool drinks like hummingbird water in a ginormous chalice, and a big
[ ...more... ]

I wish I could say I had crazy hobbies like naked skydiving (does naked camping count?), underwater shark impersonator, or snake charmer (I did play with a grass snake for an hour once when I was 8), but I'm just not that interesting. Instead I'll settle with my actual lame hobbies like reading voraciously, taking tons on photos (including lots of "selfies", of course), and camping (I wasn't kidding about that). I love making thematic playlists and being a QM is a perfect outlet for that; I get to create new playlists every week. 

I'm sorta known for my nonsensical, made up words and random goofy sounds. I've been called weird more than once, I take it as a compliment. (But after attending two Geek Bowls, I'd say I'm on the low end of the GWD weirdness scale.)

I have a motorcycle (that I haven't ridden in a long time) and a cat named Zube (that I've never ridden) who likes to "assist" me when I'm preparing my quiz and creating my blog. There's also another cat named Snow who is more interested in looking out the window; I guess he's looking for white walkers. I'm a proud native Texan, but I don't often sound like one (until I've had a few drinks). And it appears I really like parenthesis.

Breakdance In Case of Emergency
WillSalerno

A handful of tips for Fuzzy’s Quiz sans Will. I can’t make quiz this week for reasons wholly unrelated to Rush Hour airing Thursdays 10/9c on CBS. Usually when I am not at quiz but also not watching a Silver Screen version of a 1998 Action/Comedy classic, I just let some other jackass host, and this week will likely be no different. However, when I return from my own business that has nothing to do with a film franchise that grossed almost $1 Billion worldwide, I would like Fuzzy’s Quiz to be exactly how I left it. So, here are the rules. 1. The Decepticons

WHY DID NO ONE SAY ANYTHING
WillSalerno

Rush Hour is on my TV now! Kung Fu and Buddy Cops on CBS! As usual, I was half-assing pub quiz at Fuzzy’s Tacos last night. Lots of teams, maybe 15, so I was focused on getting done quick. But in my periphery, on a corner TV, I notice something very odd. A show is on CBS. During primetime. Lots of the karate. No white peoples!

Initially, at Fuzzy’s: I was a little bit late. The bar was busy-ish. My beer was hidden :( But I’m a professional. Quiz didn’t seem hard. Except the Presidents. That was really tricky. Cause presidents man, You know they fuckin.

WillSalerno

A slow night took me back to quiz of old.   Back in the day, quiz was twenty plus teams a week.   The bars were making money hand over fist and booze flowed.   I was free to give out prizes as I saw fit for anything I deemed worthy:   Best Team Name, Worst Team Name, T-Ball Prize For Trying Hard, New Faces   Now times are tough, I’m not as funny, the bar is not

What the hell did I walk into last night?
WillSalerno

Chaos, that’s what.   Fuzzy’s was hot, the tables and patio were full, and LE was slammed.   Only 14 teams though.   Some of those teams were local drunks playing quiz for the first time.   Thanks for coming.   Others were drinking alcohol at a bar for the first time.   I mean, apparently.

Bridge of Lies
WillSalerno

Facts still suck. I missed quiz last week because I was at Geek Bowl and it was great. It is easy to distinguish the Temptations from the Four Tops. The Fuzzy's burrito is the perfect portion for a light snack. The Decepticons are the new permanent champions. You can only listen to so much TLC before it gets old. William Shatner Face isn't funny anymore. Paul Ryan came to my quiz last night. Shots occurred in moderation. We missed you, Jamey. Fucks were given. Next week, something new. Let's F up some

D-Town, Like Detroit
PeteGilmore

I experienced the Fuzzy Taco for the first time last week as a player, more like playa.  I rolled in with 5 hot ladies, check Owen's blog from last week.  Fuzzy's has everything a great venue needs; great beer, great food, a bartender whose beauty is only rivaled by her friendliness, great audio, and smart quizzers.  It was an honor to sit on Will's throne for a night.  I enjoyed the soft brisket taco, a Cold Snap, and a 420 IPA.  That brisket taco wins.  Speaking of winning, no one did more of it than Dick Town.  83 points, that is what we in the biz refer to as an assertion of dominance with no regard for the morale of the other quizzers.

#1 rule - drive courteously to pub quiz, use your turn signals

#2 - have a topical and funny team name

#3 - really funny wrong answers can get you a beer and be tomorrow's blog title

#4 - tip well

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

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.

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
