Panning for Gold
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  Have you ever gone panning for gold? Like actually up in the hills, pan for gold - it is a pretty good time if you haven’t. The places that I’ve gone (mind you, this has been like three times in my life) it has been guided by someone who is dressed as if it is during the gold rush and speaks in that twang that you would associate with the time so it is more of a show than actually panning for gold. Of course there are people who go panning for ACTUAL gold but I’ve never been one of those people. The thought of putting in actual effort to get actual gold just seems like too much

Growling Our Way
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  If you don’t think that the Chewbacca noise is hilarious, I don’t even know who you are. Did you ever see that video of the mom wearing the Chewbacca mask? That shiz was SO funny, mostly I feel like it was her laughter that was funny but the mask was also pretty hilarious. I don’t know what it is about the sound of Chewbacca but it makes me giggle every time. Here is a fun thing to know about me: I also work for Denver Comic Con - which means I know and hang out with quite a few super Star Wars fans. I

Bad News Bears
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  That is how I feel about the news in general lately - it is just a whole lot of bad news bears and nothing that happy. I will give the one caveat however that the morning news is MUCH lighter and funnier and they have quite a bit of happy things...which is why I have the news on when I am waking up/getting ready in the morning. Well, that and because I want to know what the weather and traffic are going to be for the day but I can’t stand to watch late night news. All it is to me is just a. Someone died b. Someone

Prince of Ridiculousness
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  I’m not crazy about Justin Bieber and let me tell you why: he was the official marker of me feeling old. When he came onto the scene I just didn’t get it. I didn’t get why girls thought he was cute, I didn’t get why his music had such appeal, I didn’t get anything about the Bieber fad. Don’t get me wrong, there are a few of his songs that inevitably make my head bop around but 9 out of 10 times it is because I didn’t realize it was a Bieber song. I feel like if I would have been slightly younger, I would have been a Belieber but no, I was too old and I missed and thus, Justin Bieber is the worst.

Once Upon a Midnight
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  Movies that take place in one night are some of my favorite movies. Clerks is still just as prevalent to my life today as it was the first time I saw it. I also just like the simplicity of one night movies. All of the things that can happen in one night sometimes amazes me, both in the movies and in real life. I don’t think I ever realized that Cloverfield was filmed in one night - to be fair, I saw that once a very long time ago after I

Happy Discount Chocolate Day
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  The only bad thing about today was that the chocolate at the store I went to was only 30% off instead of 50% off - which is a bummer because I am a massive bargain hunter at my core but I’ll take any discount, especially if that discount is on chocolate. Sugar is my actual life blood. Don't judge me - at least I know who I am!  Well, tonight was a glorious night of quiz - other than the fact someone tried to step to me about WWE. Seriously, of the things that you should not try to fight me on, WWE is at the top of the list. I absolutely love WWE and know far too much about it. When you

Smart Dumb People
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  I realize that the headline here is an oxymoron, like how can a smart person be dumb? Well, let me just say if you are asking that question, you haven’t met someone who is super ridiculously smart - because those people are pretty dumb sometimes. I have really smart people in my life, like my brothers are so smart about a lot of things but there are some things that they make me feel like a genius because they just don’t get it. It is things like common sense that seem to throw them. And it isn’t that they have something that makes them not understand it, it literally is like they operate at such a high level

The Wicked Witch of The West
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  You know, there was a part of me that was like...we could make Wicked Witch of the West be a joke about the president. But, I’m not gonna. There is too much gross political grossness in the world that I think we just need to talk about a much better time like 1939 when The Wizard of Oz came out. Wizard of Oz is one of my all time favorite movies - I know, you’re shocked by this - but it is just such a good story and when you look at the effects they were able to do for

Once More, With Feeling
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  Buffy the Vampire Slayer was hands down my favorite show the time it came out and is one of my all time favorites now. And if you don’t think that Once More, With Feeling is one of the best episodes you are definitely living in a fantasy world. That is one of the best episodes of television if you are asking my opinion.I will say, when they introduce Dawn at the start of the 5th season I was SO confused. I legitimately thought I missed a season or four but no, it was just

Overplayed Songs
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  I usually don’t mind hearing the same song over and over. I listen to the radio fairly frequently so hearing something over and over doesn’t bother me, but I get when people are annoyed. It is like kids just saying the same thing over and over - you can only handle it for so long before you just snap. This is another reason I’m not allowed to have children, I would snap about that before I snap about listening to the same song for the 900th time. Well, tonight we had another glorious night of quiz. One of our teams did something I would literally never be able to do. Not if you

Thar She Blows: The Volcano Jokes Write Themselves
E-Parks

Hey there quizzers and welcome back to the blog! I am obviously not Amanda, but I had the privilege of being your quizmaster tonight. I think we had a grand old time at the Irish Rover. We discussed volcanoes, sang songs about addiction, and google imaged some echidnas. Are they adorable? Are the terrifying? No one will ever know. It is one of life’s great mysteries.   In the end, Tree ended up beating out Topical Cream by a SINGLE POINT for first place.

The Sun Came Up
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  Now that the year of the plague is over, we can all breath a little easier. Although, I was asked what made 2016 so terrible and I honestly couldn’t come up with anything other than the celebrity deaths and the election - I mean, those are two pretty big things - but those were the only things that I could think of. Even on a personal level, 2016 wasn’t a terrible year for me so now I kinda feel bad for giving it such a bad rap. What about it was so terrible for you? What was terrible was that performance by Mariah Carey on the NYE show - I mean, good Christmas that was BAD. I mean, there

As the Year Closes
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

It is kind of hard to believe that 2016 is almost over but at the same time, hasn’t this been the longest year ever? I feel like a lot of really beloved famous people have died - which of course everyone is talking about. But you know which one got me? Carrie Fisher’s dog Gary. In case you don’t know, Gary was Carrie’s support dog - he went everywhere with her and was on the plane with her when she had her heart attack. I myself have somewhat of an emotional support dog, she isn’t clinically classified as such but she goes with me quite literally everywhere except for quiz

  I watched that episode of Seinfeld last night for the first time ever. I’ve known about it what feels like my entire life but I had never actually seen the episode.

Krampin’
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  If you don’t like Krampus, you are wrong. That is a real bold statement to open up this shindig but I’m gonna stick with it. Now, I can’t comment on the movie Krampus because I haven’t seen it, I’m sure I would like it because horror movies are right up my ally regardless of whether they are good or not. But the concept of Krampus is amazing - he is a chill bro if you are a chill bro but if you are a dick, he is a bigger dick right back. That is a stance I can get behind for sure. Also, little kids are assholes 90% of the time - they need

Going for the Triple Double
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  You know, I really enjoy nights of quiz where we have three double point rounds - mostly because more points is always better than less, but also because it is fun to see your faces struggling with the decision to joker round 2 or not. I mean, you guys have this struggle every week and I enjoy it but on nights like tonight, it was even better. Really, I guess you could say I just enjoy watching people struggle with themselves because it is entertaining. Also entertaining tonight was those 8-bit Christmas songs. Here is
