Queen Latifah has never made a bad movie. FIGHT ME, BRO!
StevieFresh

Hey there, Nomad!! Thank you guys so much for letting me quiz with you! Although I’ve previously kept score for the AMAHZING Lindsay, last night was the first time I’ve had the pleasure of hosting for you! I have to give the hugest shout out to your regular scorekeeper Melissa for taking such good care of me. Now let’s dive in!  So what went down last night? Round 1 featured a bonus question about the ever lovely RuPaul. When I was in middle school in the early 90s, I remember seeing her featured in an advertisement and being very unsure of what was going on with her while simultaneously

Let’s Have a Kiki
Rev. Lindsay

And by a Kiki, I mean a MadLib (not the quizzer)…   The year is 19, and Texas' Snorflap with Belgium is History. In his continued efforts to outdo the Secretary Of The Interior of Belgium, His Majesty, King Gabe VIII, has invited some of the country's most Foamy Social Workers to create for him a Cat Toe fit for the most Rough of all Activists: himself.  Unfortunately, His Majesty's Shiny Cords are turning his once-Moist kingdom into Texas's Furriest Dude Bros. In an act of desperation,

I Vote We Do This Job Really, Really Fast
Rev. Lindsay

That is sincerely in reference to me writing out this blog.  You?  I never wanna rush my time with you.  I wanna treat you like a lady, and love on ya all slow and tender like… in a purely quizzing sense.  I wanna caress your ear holes with words and song, and snuggle your brain with questions.   I wrote that title and paragraph, and then proceeded to watch an episode and a half of Firefly (“Jaynestown” through “Out Of Gas” if you’re curious) without writing anything… it was my husband’s idea to put on Firefly at 3AM.  Whereas I am legit am the Zoe to his Wash (minus the eventual spike through

Where My Joyce Carol Oates Fans At?!
Rev. Lindsay

The crowd goes WILD! Who knew, amirite?   Melissa got to sport a lot of state pride with round one being about Pennsylvania and all.  She also got to fangirl about the foosball with our Fantasy Football Themed Team Name side game.  She proclaimed Stephen Hawkins’ Cleats the winners and they got the double honor of also winning first place!   Make sure to check out the team photos.  We’re playing a little game I like to call “Where In The Bar Is Marlon The Bartender?”  He has become the master of the photo bomb!   Round one as mentioned was all about the

Sorry That You Missed The Potter Quiz
Rev. Lindsay

We had quite a few teams that thought we were hosting the Harry Potter quiz that happened last Saturday, so much so, I had half a mind to just do it anyway.  I resisted the urge, primarily because we had a whole round on my other favorite fandom, Firefly.  Now, all we need is a Veronica Mars, Hamilton, and Kevin Smith quiz and I’ll be in fangirl heaven.   We had a good turn out on the FB bonus question and Clint went and picked up the Toilet Tunes mat, and then I got treated to information on how there are fancy toilets with automated foot rests in this world.  Even as a quizmaster, you learn something new every day.   I

I Really Wanted To Have You Act Out A Scene…
Rev. Lindsay

Primarily to see how far someone would take it if I played “Goodbye Horses”.  That’s right!  We gave away passes for SILENCE: THE MUSICAL last night.  I decided it would be for the best team name OR best hand-drawn picture of your favorite scene.  Kyle from I Put The Lotion On Every Night drew a legit A.F. picture of the very scene I was expecting.  He and Mikaela are going to enjoy those passes tonight.  Lemme know how it is guys!   We had a tie-breaker for third even though (technically)

Single Rainbow, So Intense
Rev. Lindsay

Before quiz began, there was a majestic A.F. rainbow stretching across the sky over Nomad, blessing us all with its magical rainbow totem powers.  Really, Rio 2016: Bleach & Perjure got the brunt of the majesty, clearly.  Not only did they get first place (by one freakin’ point!), but Dori won her first ever bonus token, and Chelsea got the facebook bonus prize.    Side Hugs was missing the other half of This Is Your Brain On and STILL took second, so big ups there.  Then, apparently, the Emilys of Hugs and We Could Have Stayed Home And Baked

Well, Color Me Impressed!
Rev. Lindsay

You is smart. You is kind. You is a bunch of smart-ass drunks. And you is very important. To me especially! So yeah, I know y’all are all kinds of badass, and you definitely proved it last night!  14 of the 18 teams got perfect scores on the first round, half of you got perfect scores on the visual, and all but two teams knew that you yield to the person on the right at a stop sign.   And people say that Austinites don’t know how to drive.   We had some visitors from Florida (Team 904 represent) who got the luck of the random.org randomizer draw and won the Facebook bonus question.  I wanted to include

And In The New Tradition…
Rev. Lindsay

Welcome to your Nomad quiz blog, and let’s call this Loose Thoughts Friday.   -Last night I noticed that some of the graffiti in the ladies room advertises “25¢ Blow Jobs”… wrong room. -Yesterday when I was inventing the Facebook bonus question, I saw that 72 years ago, Anne Frank was found by the Nazis. I tell my husband this, and then say I have no idea how to punch up that factoid into a question, and he says: “72 years ago, what girl lost the ultimate hide and seek championship?”  He’s the devil, apparently. -SK Melissa wanted to share with you all the word she learned yesterday: Eproctophilia

We Are Firmly In Camp Piccata
Rev. Lindsay

No, we are not having Spaghetti of convenience. We are arguing the merits of Italian food on my couch. The bestie is pro-marsala. The hus is pro-piccata. I’m pro whatever effing food you’ll put in front of my face because I can still feel last night’s Jameson and I’m in need of starches.   It doesn’t happen often, but we had to do a last second prize switcheroo due to an Excel snafu, and we had a new best-team-friendship emerge between Gabe&Meredith,et.al (a.k.a. One Night In Gryffindor, and my Harry Potter Felt Like The Goblet of Fire) and This Is Your Brain On Hugs (a.k.a. Make Azkaban Great Again),

Let’s All Review Our Kinsey Score, Shall We?
Rev. Lindsay

I know there is all sorts of hubbub around the new Ghostbusters… man-boys are crying about their childhoods being ruined… people that feel like Hollywood needs some new ideas and have gone too far… the internet is being the internet and verbally assaulting the comic genius that is Leslie Jones… but you know what? I FREAKIN LOVED THE NEW GHOSTBUSTERS.  I love the old one too.  When I heard they were remaking it, I was like “Why? Why mess with perfection?” but then I heard it was Paul Feig and an all-female cast, so I knew it wouldn’t just be a remake.  And it wasn’t.  Original story.  Original

I Am Wearing The Cat Pants Of Understanding
Rev. Lindsay

Laura from Poké-Your-Mom-And GO inspired us all with her space cat leggings and patience… especially when it comes to not accepting “Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim” for the last question of the night.  Hearts broke all over, but alas, L does not an A make.   In more heartbreaking news: anyone that was hoping for a nomination for Team Name of the Week with a Pokémon themed name… you’re gonna have a bad time.  I just got word that by Wednesday, we had 57 teams named “Pokémon Go Fuck Yourself”.  Who knows how many more teams named themselves that

Is That ALL You People Think About?
Rev. Lindsay

There were a disproportionate number of team names about male members in the quiz tonight.  Note they were mostly in the bottom quadrant of scores and all, but really, it’s more entertaining to think about tumescence after these last few days than what is going on in the walls outside of our beloved Nomad Bar.   It was Edith the pizza girl’s birthday!  Yay!!!!!  And we had a pre-quiz sing along to “Teenage Dirtbag”!  More Yaaaaaay!!!!!  And while some folks felt like it was a speed round at quiz tonight, we actually covered a lot of ground (in our allotted two hours).   Round One was

After Three Years, A FIRST!
Rev. Lindsay

Today (Friday) marks the three-year anniversary of the first quiz I ever hosted.  I made a big fuss about the anniversary of my hire date, so I didn’t feel it would be necessary to rant about this anniversary aloud, so I’m doing it here.  But mainly…   As a quizmaster or regular quizzer, you see a lot of overused team names (My Couch Pulls Out, But I Don’t… Tequila Mockingbird… Team Ramrod… etc.) and you hear stories of other overused names.  Last night marked the first time I had a This Mic Feels Like A Dick In My Hands… which doesn’t even make sense, guys.  I don’t know

Oh, What A Night! Mid-June, 2016
Rev. Lindsay

I am humbled and in awe of every single one of you! We hosted our leg of the Equality Florida Quiz for a Cause to benefit the Pulse Victims Fund, and you blew me away!  $444.87 in cash, and another $163 in online donations!  From your pocket change, to singles, to your mere presence, there is nothing in the world that floors me as much as people showing up for their community.    All told, Austin raised $2200, but Geeks across the country, almost 60 quizzes in 30 different cities, we raised $17,000! And it’s thanks to players like you who give us a reason to do these things.  So thank you. Thank you, thank YOU.   Now

That’s right: everyone’s favorite Nomad bartender was celebrating his latest trip around the sun! Instead of objectifying him, as I am wont to do, I played as much Motorhead and cheesy birthday songs as I could.  The least I can do on no notice… I prefer to bring cupcakes, ya know?   In other huge news: We are going to have a Quiz for a Cause to benefit Equality Florida and raise money for the victims of the Orlando tragedy THURSDAY, JUNE 23rd! Make sure to come back next Thursday and bring cashy money! I know I only mentioned it a few hundred times, but the only real way to get me
