Jack vs. Allstate
Woody

Back in the saddle again!  Been out for a few weeks dealing with some family matters.  It’s good to be back and to know the teams were in good hands with Jack.  Allstate would have screwed things up!   Speaking of saddles, Always Dreaming didn’t win the Preakness, ending his Triple Crown run… guess his owner can go back to, umm, dreaming…   Average scores:  Rounds 2, 6, and 8 could have been better!  Round 3 was close to perfection! Round 1 - 6.92 / 8 Round 2 - 9.67 / 16 Round

"Feel Good Inc." by The California Raisins
Jack

I had the honor of hosting the quizzers at Sek’end Sun for a second week in a row last night. It seemed like it was going to be a slightly quieter night than usual at first, but by Round 3 a few straggler teams had joined, getting us up to Sek’end Sun’s new normal of thirteen teams.   The last question of the night, the highest grossing box office actors of all-time, really tripped people up. A lot of people put Stan Lee, thanks to a recent article about his earnings, but

The Great Sexy Bake-Off Scones
Jack

Another record turnout at Sek’end Sun last night: 14 teams! Well, one left early so I guess it ended up just thirteen, but it was still a ton! Sek’end Sun is the place to be lately.   One reason turns out is we’ve been getting some attention from the Astoria subreddit. Two or three of the new teams are folks from there, including last night's second place winners Astoria Ocelots

Still waiting on that bigger boat!
Woody

Packed house again!  Sweet for me, but sad for the folks that left on account of no room!   So, it seems that last night, gremlin decided to invade my Mac!  I had setup the Music round earlier in the day, however my Mac decided to play the songs of order including songs that weren’t in the playlist.  Then somewhere after Round 5, I received a phone call via my Mac and I don’t recall ever synchronizing my Mac with my iPhone.  Gremlins I tell you!   Everyone enjoyed Round 7: Manchester By the Sea: The Musical!  Name the movies YouTube channel Legolambs has turned into musicals.  These clips were pretty funny!   Thanks

We’re gonna need a bigger boat!
Woody

We’ve had some fantastic crowds in recent weeks and are at capacity!  Cool!!!   Funniest answer of the night came in the bonus round to this question:  Round 1 Bonus:  The adorable deep-cable show "Smartest Animals in America" premiered in 2015, on the 93rd birthday of what host?  Let me set the playing field first to help you understand the answer.  The theme of the round was:  The Old Five-and-Dime - Each answer will be a two-word phrase made of five-letter words. The correct answer was Betty White, but one team must have missed the 93rd birthday part, and being the question was about animals wrote Steve Irwin.  Umm, Steve is

We've got some in… We've got some out…
Woody

We've got some wild things floating about!   Had my first threesome, err um, three-way tie for first… read on to see how that played out!   The title of my blog relates to having teams sitting both inside and outside… and in homage to the greatest prog rock song of all time, that 23-minute masterpiece by Genesis, called Suppers Ready!  I might have to let that one roll some night at a quiz!   A snippet from Suppers Ready Walking across the sitting-room, I turn the television off.Sitting beside you, I look into your eyes.As the sound of motor cars fades in the night

We Don't Know Jack
Jack

Jack here subbing in for Ron. I’ve hosted for him a few times at his other place, Mr. Biggs, but this was my first time covering at Sek’end Sun and, I gotta say, it was pretty special.   I’ve been a regular player on Monday nights at Sek’end Sun for a couple of years now – long before I became a quizmaster myself. I was a bit nervous about hosting at

Tarzan wore a Mini-skirt!
Woody

This was in reference to a round on cuts of meat:  R1Q1:  As in most depictions, Disney's Tarzan only sported what scant article of clothing? The correct answer is Loincloth, with Loin being the cut of meat.  One answer was Mini-skirt, and true, Skirt is a cut of meat.  Come to think of it, a Loincloth does look like a Mini-skirt.   The other fun answer what that infamous cut of meat, The Smurf…  R1Q7:  John Walter Bratton composed what adorable kids' song about a secret cuddly forest luncheon? The answer is Teddy Bears' Picnic.  Apparently, Picnic is a cut of meat.  The “Picnic Ham” is the lower part of the pigs

You Know What's Really Awkward, Lube?
RegineMont-Louis

First of all ASSEMBLY REQUIRED. My bad. Also, I could have sworn it looked like a date or a like a family outing or something with a mother/son; mother/daughter duo; mother/kids duo and of course lube comes up (pardon the pun!) Delicate Steven…oooo is a lube. Just saying the word, “lube” makes me shudder (no pun intended, seriously…actually does anyone watch Archer // PHRASING!) SO in other news, here’s what’s going down (PHRASING) My mom is telling me to go back and get my master’s because apparently, living on my own, being financially self-sufficient isn’t

Did you get an origami stork? I did!

One team member of CITY FULL OF "SNOW FLAKES" made me an "napkin" origami stork..  see photos!  This was in response to a question on far east art forms!  Thank you!   Blizzard on the way, 12-24” of snow, NYC shutting down…  News at 11!   Is that a stork or a pterodactyl???  Doesn’t matter… I love it!   Umm, once again the folks at AccuWeather were not too accurate… no blizzard.  News at 11!   Kat was in the house!!!   Average scores:  Well done overall, however Round 6 was pitiful!

Tom Hanks was a Cross-dresser???
Woody

No one knew that Tom Hanks’ first starting role was a cross-dresser!  Yup, 1980 on Bosom Buddies.  He stared as Kip/Buffy Wilson along with roommate cross-dresser, Peter Scolari as Henry Desmond / Hildegarde 'Hilde' Desmond.  The plot was basically two young single men must disguise themselves as women to live in the one apartment they can afford…  Umm, why were only women able to live in more affordable accommodations???   The actual question was you were given the name of the apartment in which they resided, the “Susan B. Anthony”, and had to name the show.   Scolari and Hanks did hook up again in “The

Headed off to Orlando to the land of enchantment so imma be brief!   Question about King Herrod and his attempt to kill baby Jesus made me laugh… the question was worded as such…   “Trying to rub out baby Jesus, biblical King Herrod supposedly ordered a mass male-baby-killing in what city?”  Well the answer is Bethlehem, and you might say, so what?  My joke about it is what was terrilbe and funny, or dare I say terribly funny!   What do you call it when a priest masturbates?  wait for it… wait for it…   Rubbing out baby Jesus!   Mic

Not "The Shining”

Writing “Not” and an incorrect answer doesn’t mean you’re correct!  It is however damn funny!    One team did this twice in the Bonus Rounds… one answer was for the Stephen King Novel, “The Stand”… they wrote Not “The Shining”…  while technically that is correct, it is not the right answer!   Thirteen is a Prime number and the record for teams at Sek’end Sun… we had 14 ready to play but one team dropped out due to lack of seating…  To the individuals sitting in the quiz area taking up space and not participating… either join

March 14th is way better than February 14th!
Woody

So, I have until 8 PM the day after the quiz to enter my blog.  You think I have all day to do that but I don't.  I leave the quiz about 10:15 PM and arrive home about 11:15 PM.  Then I chill out for about a half hour so before hitting the sack.   I get up about 6:30 AM to get ready and head to my day job, then after work I head home and arrive there about 6:30 PM. This leaves me about an hour and a half to eat dinner and write my blog. So here it is…   Happy Valentine's Day to all you ladies out there. But I much prefer March 14 which is “Steak and BJ Day”!   Average scores:  The worst Round 8 in the

It started to hit me like a, umm, umm, two-ton heavy thing!
Woody

Team “CATWOMAN DU”… I think I finally got it… this was a play on “Kathmandu” (Cat Man Du).  Here I was thinking it was French.   Oh, the irony or is it a premonition?  During the quiz, I played “Empire” by Queensryche which begins with the “supposed” spoken word of Pres Ronald Regan stating what I used for my blog title.  And when finally, I got the pun in Team “CATWOMEN DU”, I immediately thought of that intro!  Very Matrix like!   Need to be brief… I only have 22 minutes remaining to post this blog!   Average
