Some Nights....
"Other" Eric

     Some nights, the quiz is perfect. Other nights, a new guy in a green shirt plays for his first time. Some nights, the crowd is happy and completely engrossed in the questions. Other nights, somebody likes to point out wrong answers while the Quizmaster is talking. Some nights, (most nights really) the Quizmaster is in a great mood and happy to see you and entertain you. Other nights, the Quizmaster has to be the asshole. I think I just wrote a new Fun. song....      The quiz itself was blessed from (enter the diety you worship here)! We opened with a round about recently in stuff, the audio round that Lingered a bit, a toon time

Sheep Go To Hell....
"Other" Eric

       Sheep noises. They have got to be better than some shithead singing along to the audio round that I very nicely asked them NOT TO SING ALONG TO! How many times does it need repeating? The rules are in place for your enjoyment. I know. I know. Billy Bob is drinking his beers having a grand old time. But DAMMIT BILLY BOB! NOBODY WANTS TO HEAR YOU TRYING TO BELT OUT JOHN MAYER! In fact, I don't want to hear REGULAR John Mayer!!! So stop it, or there will be more sheep!      Tonight, we began with from C to shining C, the audio round getting you primed for school starting, the 50/50 round on random things, the Sherlock visual and the

What's in a Name? A Freakin' Aneurysm!!!!
"Other" Eric

     Usually you kids come up with some pretty funny names (not really, but you try!), but tonight, I had a Lewis Black moment. "Pants Down Encounters with a Bear" gave me the near aneurysm moment. To tell you the truth, I know I will be at work tomorrow, working away on construction shit, but really, I will have in the back of my head "what happened while your pants were down?" "Was it the front or the back?", "Did somebody die????". I wanted to ask you to stick around after quiz to tell me more, but NO! I was too busy handing out prizes and taking pictures! If I die this weekend I will be SO PISSED!!!!      The quiz kicked off with a round

French Lick People!
"Other" Eric

      So sometimes, people need hints. Especially when it comes to sports questions. Now, when I tell you something rhymes, that is an actual hint. So, how does BLOW JOB rhyme with hick?!?!?!? I might have given a point to the team who put "Suck Dick" because, you know, rhyming. But since that is not a town in Indiana and since the question was about Larry Bird.... NO! He was from an era of basketball greatness. If you want to say the NBA stars of today suck dick, I am ok with that. The era of Bird and Johnson and Thomas, that was some great basketball. So, try harder quizzlings!      The quiz kicked off with a Road Trip, the audio round

Holy smokes! I’ve been living the sub life for both Eric’s all week and tonight you all turned out in DROVES for the Wed night quiz at O’Niell’s on Central.  29 teams of you that pretty much all stayed for the entire two hours. We even had a visiting team down from Santa Fe. And a wonderful table of regulars bought a round of drinks for Fernando and I. Overall it was a great night of quiz. And for those of you that follow my blog posts here at GWD I still haven’t managed to find a pair of Chuck Taylor II’s but I did get a kick ass pair of Star Wars vans. So it

     I missed you kids last week! I have been laying around with my leg propped up all week and this has been my first contact with civilization! I am glad to see everyone and very happy to be back!      The quiz started with a Duh round, the audio round of artists you call "The ___", but they hate that, a speed round on the lesser Pixar, a round on pants and the historical visual round. The back side of quiz lead off with dogs, gods and dog gods, the audio round wishing Anna Kendrick a very happy 30th birthday and Random Knowledge taught us tonight Japan doesn't have very busy ports, Pizza Hut has a billion dollar pizza (that I still would not

Lions, Nummy Muffins, and Tom Cruise
The Jewish Viking

Man, what another exciting packed house of quiz at O'Niell's! We had 35 teams last night. Thirty five! That's crazy pants! Needless to say the competition was strong. We started out with our celeb equations round. At some point, I almost said betesticled instead of bespectacled when referring to Drew Carey. While the former isn't a real word, it's technically correct. How do I know? Well, I'm a fellow betesticled human of America, too. Our music round was all about having trouble understanding. It included Genesis, Jason Derulo, Led Zeppelin and... Joe. You made a good song, man.. but come on. Joe? How were you gonna get famous on just Joe? You can only do one word

Cupcake

   You guys sure know how to make a gal feel welcome! I love subbing at O’niell’s, what with the awesome staff, getting to hang out with Fernando for two hours, and just the great quiz vibe that you all project. Thanks! We had some pretty awesome rounds tonight including an amazing audio round on BEES! And no, we did not accept yellow jackets. For ANY answer! We also made fun of fancy beer and Poland was an answer twice which may be just a coincidence, or it may be weird! I don’t know! You know what I do know? John Waters loves flamingos!

I've been a Quizmaster for FOUR YEARS! Holy cheese, Batman!

Besides quiz I work at two other jobs, which are my own businesses! Check out The Octopus and The Fox

I also play kickball on the best* fucking team in the league! TACO KICK! 

I rock climb sometimes inside (outside is where snakes live!), ride a 1980 Vespa scooter with the Pharaoh Scooter Cult, and share a house with another QM (my husband Sean) two rescued Pit Bulls and a cat named Muffin. 

I like making art, sewing stuff, playing with legos, watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and enjoying a fine cup of tea.

RAWR!

 

*Best as in: Most fun. Not like best at the actual "sport".

Adam Jarmon Brown

Once more into the breach dear friends! Eric the Jewish Viking was too busy adulting at his new house this week, so he asked me to step in and sub Quizmaster for him. And despite some technical difficulties we got the quiz on like gang busters. And holy crap were there a whole bunch of you last night! 35 teams materialized out of the ether (or parking lot) to compete for the little green cards that you can spend like real money at O’Niell’s. 35 freaking teams! Fernando had his score keeping work cut out for him and I had a whole bunch of people to read questions to. And read questions I did! Our themes last night were 1.

Chemobrain Warriors!
"Other" Eric

Tonight, we celebrated the quiz by raising some money for charity! Over $300 was raised to help in the research and treatment of "Chemobrain".  I usually don't write too much personal stuff here (except when I say I love you, cause that is straight from my heart!), but in February, my father-in-law was diagnosed with stomach cancer. When they went in to see how far it had spread, it was already outside of his stomach. They went straight to chemo. He has his final treatment in the next 2 weeks and the cancer has gotten smaller (thank goodness), but we have noticed that, especially right after the treatments, he is quite fried.  He has a difficult time finding words and remembering.

Dearest Quizzers, Oh How I’ve Missed You
Adam Jarmon Brown

  I’ve been homeless. I don’t mean I don’t have a home to live in. I, in fact, have a pretty swanky apartment that I wound up with when Quizmaster Kent moved to Denver. (NAME CHECK!) When I say homeless I mean I don’t have a regular quiz of my own and haven’t since April. I’ve subbed quite a bit for folks like I did tonight for Eric the Jewish Viking, who is busy buying a house or some such bullshit. So huzzah for him.   Or is that mazel tov?

This is Alarming!

     Well, not to alarm anyone, but in the midst of trying to find the table for me to set up my gear, our lovely waitress and Manager Rosie went out the wrong door and set off the fire alarm!  The most interesting part: NOBODY MOVED! NOBODY FLINCHED! NOBODY EVEN BATTED AN EYE! Like the fire alarm goes off and "Oh, Fuck it. I'm gonna die with a great beer in front of me"!      You guys are the worst class of students with fire alarms. I think next week we should have fire drill!

Hearing 200 People Shout Out "Balls" Without Prompting Is Magic
The Jewish Viking

And I suppose at an all Archer themed quiz is where that's destined to happen. We packed every last seat (including some swiped from Gioco) at O'Niell's last night with one goal in mind: Bear Claws. Wait, I mean, Archer. If you had any doubt what the masses are doing in Albuquerque when not playing Geeks Who Drink, we know for certain their watching Archer over and over again. Because not only did we have 50 teams, we had fifty really good teams. There were some really high scores on this. You all aren't just fans, you're super fans, including all those fancy folk who dressed up and our very own Quizmasters Jessi and Fernando. I guess I'm more of a "bah humbug" than

I get it, I know that song, too. And I love that song, too. Hell, I've seen Journey at the pavilion - and I willing paid for my tickets. But man... 33 teams all trying to sing along with Don't Stop Believing at the same time? No. Just no. It wasn't the right time for all of to share a moment.   So I rained on your parade. Like I probably rained on your parade when I asked you about rocky vs gas planets in our solar system. Someone even came up to me and asked about it. My reply, "Is Pluto a planet?" Sorry, pedants, but science says no. And guess what, I believe science more than drunk guy at O'Niell's at 10pm.   And, just so you're aware, Walloons

      In a night of record-breaking events, quiz was just as amazing at O'Niell's!!! While we did not score any hat tricks in 15 minutes, win our third World Cup or get revenge that has been heavy on our minds the last 4 years, we had guys getting pumped for Jeff Mangum, women yelling out "Glee" and lots of chuckles over our round on where you had to change one initial. We had a tie-break for third. The returning champs came in fourth. We had people guess "The Jeffersons" for a Sesame Street clip (not one or two teams...TOO MANY OF YOU!!!!).
