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!
Woody

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

Leavin’ on a Jet Plane!
Woody

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”
Woody

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

Never Underestimate the Power of Disney's Hercules
Thomas

As I'm finally getting into the swing of being a proper quizmaster (for Woody continues to disappear briefly and I QM in his stead), I find my style evolving slowly. When I'm not getting ahead of myself after the first scoring break (probably because I really wanted to get to Round 4; I miss Mary muchly), I'm trying to keep consistent padding between questions and scoring my hand off. What I'm really getting high on is the fine art of music theming. I've only dipped my toes in thus far, but finding the right combination of tracks to play under a round is an interesting challenge. From the goofy (I can't be the only QM who dug up "Like a Virgin" for Round 6,

Movin’ to Long Island soon…
Woody

Movin’ to Long Island soon…   Seems Jay and company are headed to “The Island mon”, so Monday was their last night at Sek’end Sun!  They will be missed, err maybe not… it opens up a slot for a new team to fill as a weekly powerhouse!   Seems Maggie is also going on hiatus… school is calling.  Maggie, this is why there is the University of Phoenix, so you can do learn on your schedule and leave room for Monday’s Quiz!!!   Well… since Jay and Maggie are out on Monday’s, I guess it is now officially an epidemic

Dank Sinatra, The Return!
Woody

Welcome back Bridgette, Michael, and friends!   Been awhile since Dank Sinatra graced us with their presence, and Michael came baring a present (gift).  Thank you Michael!   Rachel couldn’t make it, so Dank Sinatra brought “Rachel 2.0”… Seems Rachel 1.0 was making some dough, as in bread, um you know… flour, yeast, water, etc…  Not money.   Best incorrect answer of the night was to R6Q7:  Instead of going to church more, you've been googling what turn-of-the century occultist whose motto was "do what thou wilt"?  No,

Cold Weather, Cold Beer, Hot Quiz
Thomas

Last time I subbed at Sek'end Sun I complained that it was far too hot. The Weather read that blog, said "Hold my beer!" and decided to bless us with subzero temperatures. Note to self: do not taunt The Weather. It is sentient, and it will kill us all. Cold as it was a great group of quizzers still came out to challenge their brains and consume beers with the hope of winning prizes. Or they just wanted to get out of the cold. I can't speak to anyone's motivation, but hey, quiz! The last few weeks have seen Joker strategy go awry. This week was quite different. Every team Jokered no later than Round Five, with most

Woody

Yes. It was my Birthday… not saying how old… just been there done that!  Thanks to everyone for sharing it with me, the singing of the birthday song, and the birthday cupcake!!!  If the red glow from the QUEENS neon sign didn’t already make me look red, you might have seen me blush!   I know it can be difficult to Joker the correct round, especially when there’s three 16-point Round.  But on this night, I feel like everyone or most everyone Jokered the incorrect round.  If one of the team had Jokered Round 7 instead of Round 8, they would have been the hands down winner.  In another scenario had a different team Jokered

Nobody Should Sweat This Much In December in New York
Thomas

Last night it was very hot. Between a 10ºF increase in the outdoor temperature and a very hot incandescent light fixture over my head, I probably looked like a much fatter Richard Nixon throughout quiz. My personal issues aside, subbing at Sek'end Sun was a blast. While Woody had assured me that his regulars would eat me alive, everyone was very nice, paid attention, and didn't mess with me in the slightest. The venue has a great staff as well, and they really enjoyed my music selections. White Zombie all the way! The quiz itself was a textbook case of careful Joker strategy. While Team

Damn it Jim, I’m a Doctor not a Playwright!
Woody

In a conversation with one team at the end of the evening they inquired as to my daytime profession.  The young fellow guessed playwright and his lovely date guessed a marketing exec from some startup…  I sort of felt like Titanic's Jack Dawson from that one scene narrated by Molly Brown. Marketing Exec is closer to the truth.   What did we learn… No one really knew that we lived in the Holocene geological epoch or that the Pleistocene epoch preceded it. Famous Canadians don’t get a star on their Walk of Fame, they get a maple leaf.

Woody

Yes, we had three generations, levels, iterations, whatever you want to call it, of Quizmasters participating in the quiz!  The retired QM, the visiting QM from Houston, and the QM in training!!!  So, how did they do, read on???   It took eight rounds plus a sudden death round to crown a champion, AKA., we had a tie for 1st place!   Anytime there is a question about the Grammy’s and Milli Vanilli is in there as an answer… they are the answer!   Best question of the night:  R6Q1:  Beefmaster. Big Beef. Mortgage Lifter. I'm not reading out your mom's search history, I'm just listing varieties

That was My Rendition of "All Star" by Smash Mouth on the Recorder. For my Next Number...
Let's Go Exploring

It's December in NYC!! The tourists are swamping into town, all the lights are going up, and people are getting searched just to cross the street on 5th avenue (near the Trump Tower). Yup, 2016 was a pretty shitty year and this was probably my last quiz for the year so we cranked up some Christmas music and had some fun. Here's how it went down:   R1: All answers began with the letters H-A. Just remember in sports, if things happen 3 times in a row it's called a Hat Trick. Harpies are the Greek myth beings that annoy the people who committed suicide (not Hades' bird women), and Hattie McDaniel is the Gone With The Wind actress who had a hard time getting a hotel for
