Star Wars v Australia
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  You know the initial concept of creatures from Star Wars and Australia getting mixed up seems kind of crazy, like one is a mystical place where something is always trying to kill you and the other is Star Wars. SEE WHAT I DID THERE?!?! Sorry, that was a lame joke that you had to see coming but it was too good to pass up. In all seriousness though, my brother used to live in Australia and he would tell me stories about all the various things he came across that probably, most definitely could kill you. My niece was born in Australia and has a VERY healthy fear of spiders. Now, that isn’t uncommon

An Ode to Carbs
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  Did you ever see that movie Michael? You know, the one with John Travolta? If you haven’t, well I don’t think you need to spend an hour plus of your life watching it but there is a scene in that movie which has permeated its way into my life and won’t go away. The lady who is traveling with them is an aspiring song-writer and she has a song about pie. You can watch the clip here

Overcoming Tesla
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  I don’t want to actually overcome Tesla - I want a Tesla. Honestly, if I had my rathers of any vehicle out there, one of my top choices would definitely be a Tesla. Another would be a late 60s Mustang but that isn’t what we are talking about here. I know most people would want a Tesla because of the electric factor, or because they think Elon is a genius or something like that. I want one because they just look cool. Ya know what else was cool? You humans tonight at Irish Rover. Tonight, we had a mighty battle through all 8 rounds - going

Honey, I’m Shrunk
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  You know that whole series of “Honey I Shrunk…” movies? I loved those as a kid. When I was younger, my family took a trip to Walt Disney World and they had an exhibit of it where there was these gigantic daily items to make you feel like you were shrunk and let me tell you what - it was the most entertaining thing I had ever seen. I’m from a super small town where nothing cool ever happens or exists, so being in a place where there was gigantic Fruit Loops? Oh man, I was in the hoggiest of all hog heavens. I already really liked the movies because it is just kid sci-fi but

Aca-Scuse Me?
Amanda "I'm Dutch and I Don't Care"

  There are few things that I love more than Pentatonix - and really good a cappella music in general. I feel like us here at Irish Rover had a little bit of a step up from the rest of the world because Pentatonix is a regular fixture of music here at quiz. Or I guess the better way to say that is you SHOULD have a step up if you were paying attention. I did choir when I was in school and the a capella choir was the end-all-be-all of the groups you wanted to be in. So in a very real way, being Pentatonix was all I wanted in my life for like 3.5 years. I wouldn’t say that I’ve outgrown

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

  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

  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.

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

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.
