That's great, it starts with an earthquake.
Fuckmaster Emeritus

I am so relieved that all my quizzers survived the SNOWSPLOSION OF WINTERPOCALYPSE. At least those who showed up last night. The others I'm waiting on official confirmation that they were buried alive. But! Hey! Maybe not the busiest night we've ever had, but not a bad 'un, considering that we were scheduled to get FOUR INCHES OF WINTRY DEATH, ZOMG!!!! And we did, and everyone's cars slid through intersections into propane trucks and exploded. I was all, WHOAAAAAAAAAA. The fun part of last night is that the Betas showed up, since they're going to Geek Bowl and need to get their chops up to choppin' before they do, because they were all derrrr derrr derrr. The

Comma chameleon: you come, and go.
Fuckmaster Emeritus

Man, but she was an upsy-downsy, topsy-turvy, weirdo little quiz last night. Due to an extra-easy-peasy round 2 that like errrrrrbody jokered, we had ourselves a pretty wacky leaderboard made up of a whole lotta newbies. All high scores, all the time for these fresh-faced young 'uns. And then! Then, you guys! Then! After I scored again, everything totally changed! New leaderboard! New winners! It was insaaaaaaane! And it happened again and again, until what happened? Until my boring ol' regular teams won, just like they always do. This means that Brainiac X capped it, and Unitarian Jihad showed up again, like a bad penny or a case of herpes.

Take it to the limit one more time.
Fuckmaster Emeritus

You guys. A fun night had by all at McCabe's last night, even for what I found to be not the easiest quiz we've ever done. A nice semi-full room of attentive attentive-trons, all in it for glory and winning and the prospect of high-fives forever and ever amen. Lots of newbies, who were just adorable, and lots of oldies, who are the worst, you guys. But hey, we play the cards we're dealt, right? And that means that stupid Unitarian Jihad, last night going by Rotting on a Corner in Winslow Arizona, totally skullfucked the quiz and won. Boooo! Boooo to them! But hey, We're With the Band, currently training for Geek Bowl, snickered right

The Man Who Fell to Earth (Hans Gruber)
Fuckmaster Emeritus

Yes, yes, let's just get all that out of the way. Hans Gruber and Bowie. Snape and Jareth and Bowie and Rickman and Love, Actually Ziggy and Bowie. Everything and everything and pun pun pun all the livelong day, clappity clappity clap. We done now? Yes? Are you sure? No? Okay, one more: Dr. Lazarus. Dr. Lazarus and Aladdin Sane. Dr. Lazarus and Aladdin Sane and Snape again. Whew. It's been a long week. Fucking Unitarian Jihad won again. The good news is that we had a whole big-ass room full of newbies, all rearin' ass to play some quiz. The bad news is that last night's material was maaaaaaybe not the quiz to cut one's teeth on. It was high-concept through

So thick you gotta spoon it up.
Fuckmaster Emeritus

Well, happy New Year and all of that and stuff to all of you and all of that, whatever. Our first quiz of 2016 at McCabe's was a predictably explosive bag of awesome. Booze? Check! Paper? Check! Pencils? Uh, oh crap, where are my pencils ...? NEVERMINDHERETHEYARECHECK! A room chock full of players? Waaaaaay check! The bestest thing about playing a New Quiz in the New Year is that every few years or so, I actually make a new quiz playlist, and this year, the watchword is UGLY KID JOE, the greatest band of 1992. Also, just "Cotton-Eyed Joe," about thirteen times on repeat. And pretty much any "Joe" song or artist, I suppose. It's the year of Joe, you guys. Don't even try to resist it. So!

Hoo-boy, a New Years Eve quiz, with aaaaaaall the trimmin's! A way to ring in a new year with friends and loved 'uns and a bag of assorted quizzery-do, like all the fun times that ever we had in the history of whatever and ever! The great part of not having many teams is that ever-body wins! Hooray! Except for Unitarian Jihad, because they're jerks. But! New teams and a few old teams and all the excitement of ever there were!

Merry everything and everybody, everybody! A pretty quiet night last night at McCabe's, because we all knew the Christ Child was on his way and that shit freaks us right out. The good news is: EVERYONE'S A WINNER! HOORAY AND HAPPY NEW YEAR FOR ALL AND TO ALL A GOOD NIGHT.

In the lane, snow is glistening?
Fuckmaster Emeritus

A frigid night. A pre-holiday freeze, with a lonely wind that can drive a man to drink. Ice on the streets, frost on the windshield, snow crunching beneath my boots as I walk these streets, my hands shoved deep into my pockets. Fairy lights in the windows, the scent of pine. Christmas, or close enough to make no difference. December, another year nearly dead and gone, those last calendar yet unchecked like empty sockets in the grin of a skull. December. Christmas. Pub quiz. Who won? Shit, does it matter, when the cold night closes around you? When the chattering of your window in its sill is the only sound to distract you from her breathing, deep and slow beside you. She's not asleep,

The Spectrum of Child Actors
DJ ROB ROB

Hi-ya, no it's not Aaron checking in tonight for quiz at McCabes Tavern but ME, ROB THE SUBSTITUTE QUIZMASTER. I had quite a bit of fun subbing this week for you Thursday quiz, and now I'm going to tell you a little about it: Round 1 started off pretty easy with a round of answers that went down the alphabet 2 at a time. Next it got a bit tricky in Round 2 where we threw a curve ball on our standard music round and you had to name the song name and the MOVIE it was from. All the songs won Oscars and kicked the ass of some Randy Newman song. The rest of the night we talked about needles but NOT pins, some Hollywood drama that may or may not have been

Whose rocket makes you say hooray?
Fuckmaster Emeritus

It's December, you guys! And twas a holly jolly fucksplosion of awesome last night at McCabe's, where everything was great and ruled and stuff and then the three teams that always win won again because they're jerks. You know what? I'm not even gonna mention their names. Week in, week out, they crush everybody and I'm just so super sick of it, you guys. Let's talk instead about how Three Muff-keeters tried to joker like 18 times, and how there was a birthday party there but they didn't play quiz but anyway, BIRTHDAY!!!! And about how ex-Betas were there and were noisy buttholes whose butts smell and were whining about not getting invited to my wedding.

Fuckmaster Emeritus

Hi, y'all! Happy Turkey Day, and by Turkey Day I mean Turkey Going to War with Russia Day! Nyuk, nyuk, I'm super full of timely jokes! Wocka wocka Benghazi! Last night was a wee bit on the quiet side, owing to the impending holiday splosion of fuckery, but that didn't stop Unitarian Jihad, last night calling themselves something else because they're nasty tricksy hobbitses, from stealing the show (and my heart!). We had Sajak in the mix, also with the new name, and some new guys calling themselves the Four Whoresman of the Aprickalypse, although I might have made up that last part. And then there were other teams. Enjoy your

This is the dawning of the age of nefarious
Fuckmaster Emeritus

Hi. So. Late late late blog! Hooooooooray! Let's talk about last Thursday. It was a barn-burner of a quiz: a whole lot of new people, a whole lot of drinking and debauched debauchery of which I wasn't a part because I'm old and boring and no one wants to hang out with me because I also smell funny. But everyone else was having fun while I wept silently into my beer. That's the important thing. Keep your head up, Aaron. Keep smiling. Keep all those feeling tamped down tight inside you and never acknowledge them and eventually everything will be okay. It will be okay. Maybe we should just head to the scores.

Heeeeeyy you guuuuuuuys?
Fuckmaster Emeritus

Hi, everybody! I have some really important things to share with you, but first, the whole deal about last night. First, our stupid regulars all kicked the crap out of everybody else. I mean, it wasn't even close, not really. Unitarian Jihad creamed everyone's corn, Vanna White privileged and Pat Sajak was also there. Among the rest of our teams were a gaggle of newbies, and man, when you pit that kind of veteran-quizzer, steely-eyed geekiness against fresh-faced newbly-ness, it just ain't even a contest sometimes, despite my best efforts to make the jerks lose. Sorry, new quizzers. I've failed you. I've failed America. The important

Fuckmaster Emeritus

Youuuuuu guuuuuuys, last night was like so busy and stuff. I think the biggest quiz we've had since the night change down at ol' McCabe's, and a superdy-duper fun 'un to boot. Lots n' lots of new faces, teams from Woodland Park (whuhhhh?) and far-flung locales like the mystical and mysterious Michigan, which is a real state. (I looked it up!) So okay, who like won and stuff? Stupid Unitarian Jihad, because there is no justice in this world. And then Sajak, doi, all up in second place's guts, and then some friendly newbies calling themselves Teddy Bear Something-Or-Other slid into third like they's coated in KY, y'all. It was really

Fuckmaster Emeritus

It's fall fall fall, you guys. Rain and cold and sweater weather for all of our sweater puppies sweating together all the night long. That said, not a whooooole lot to report from last night at McCabe's. Pretty good turnout, although everybody turned tail and ran right the hell out of there the moment quiz was done, like a pack of COWARDS. Methinks aforementioned sweater and puppies and cold had something to do with it, perchance? Hmmmmm. But anyway, stupid Unitarian Jihad won again because they're the worst. And then Pat Sajak because they're the second-worst in all the last. But, lo, Beastmode are kinda newish and they made the leaderboard, so it
