Great Quiz or GREATEST QUIZ?
Rev. Lindsay

Dudes. Dudettes. Non-binaries. Romans. Countrypeople. Other overused intros. Hello.   I just got back from seeing Deadpool.  It is so choice.  If you have the means, I highly recommend it.   If you’ve seen it, you’ll know why that’s funny.  After you see it, you’ll know.  And if you don’t get it… well, come and see me after class.   We had a freebie round called DUH, which should have ensured an easy eight points for everyone but we only had one team pull it off.  An audio round where we narrowed the artists down to two options for each question.  A 50/50

I Wanna Be At The Quiz Where It Happens
Rev. Lindsay

Show of hands: who thought round four was the best thing that ever happened?Yeah, us too.  Lindsay2 doesn’t often ask to read a round but we HAD to switch hit that.  And hit that we did.  Hopefully no one got pregnant last night, unless they wanted to.  And you’re welcome.  I practiced that sultry voice allllll day. I also totally loved the round three business and the gimmes with all the Paula Deen recipes missing butter. Did you know that during quiz, there was a manhunt happening on the other side of 35?  The smokers can attest to this tweet being true.  We

I Make Good On My Vague Promises
Rev. Lindsay

Meaning… I totally brought cupcakes tonight!  And yay!  I was so wrapped up in my own shizz I didn’t even get to eat one, but that’s fine.  All the more for you my beautiful friends!  I also finally delivered Devon’s trophy from a non-quiz shot contest back in December.  I’ll get around to stuff eventually. We hooked y’all up with three 16 point rounds tonight!  Round one covered historical moments from this week in January, round two were song parodies about Australia (where EVERY. TEAM. used their jokers), round three was a double point round where each question had two answers.  I hope I didn’t

Good Thing That the Customary One Year Anniversary Gift is Paper
Rev. Lindsay

…Because we received 222 sheets of it tonight.  Ah.  But such is quiz.  I remembered halfway through tonight’s game that this marks my one-year anniversary of taking over Nomad Bar.  I should have remembered in advance, and then I could of made a sappy retrospective to “Still The One” by Shania Twain.  Maybe we’ll celebrate my cake day next week.  With real cake.  You’ll have to come next week to find out.  Like I said on stage tonight, I am eternally grateful to you the quizzers for coming out every week, and to the wonderful Nomad staff for giving us a fantastic home.  Our quiz as Nomad has been around

How Texan Is Your Quizmaster?
Rev. Lindsay

So Texan that no matter how much I love David Bowie I can’t say his last name right because of Texas history.  Thanks to round six, we got to watch this in action.  In case you’re like whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat? Bowie as in David is “boe-ee” or “boh-ee” and Bowie as in Jim is “boo-ee” and I’m a little too Texan to switch gears.  In my defense, good ol’ Davy had a good sense of humor about the different pronunciations, so we cool. My overwhelming southern-ness aside, extra heaping amounts of love for getting me through

Taylor Swift Sounds Waaaaay Better With Cow Lowing In The Middle
Rev. Lindsay

So say we all. You folks make a girl feel all warm and fuzzy! 23 teams to welcome us back after three weeks away. I missed your faces so much and being back on the couch of love was fantastic!  Scott Elder Abuse takes the crown as our very first, first place team of the year and nicely done friends.  This Is Your Brain On Hugs studied on their time off and took second place! We also saw the mighty return of Can I Borrow A Feeling? and Junk Naps! And the best team name I’ve seen all year (and not because it’s only the second week), 18 Years, 18 Years, and On The 18th

Debbie Does Quiz, and The Couch Pulled Out
Rev. Lindsay

We had a helluva evening with Baby Bear back on the couch, a visit from QM Gerald and his lovely lady, all sorts of candies and desserts from the Bear, and passes for Doctuh Mistuh’s production of Debbie Does Dallas: The Parody Musical!  The first set of passes went to the best DDD related team name, and there were some valiant contenders… Don’t Dallas My Phallus...

Uterus Shirts For The Win
Rev. Lindsay

Usual convention dictates that I name this blog something about Jameson, but really… way too much happened tonight to boil it down to just that.  Too basic.  Too simple. First and foremost: after a two week break, Lindsay2 and I were back on the couch of love and my sweet Miranda*, it was amazing.  I missed my Nomad peeps.  I missed my quizzers.  I can’t go that long again.  And this just in: next week… NEW SOUND. Strap in for that.  Then… Genevieve had the best shirt of all time.  Then… I converted at least four people to the fandom of Hamilton the Musical.  Then…

This Evening Brought To You By Jameson, Part V.
Rev. Lindsay

It was a drink the pain away kinda evening.  I left a job interview to get straight to quiz so I needed to get right on top of my “OMG I HOPE THEY LOVE ME” boo boo.  ALSO, it was effin’ Tiffany’s birthday and the rest of This Is Your Brain On Hugs didn’t tell me so I could fall all over her all night like I did when it was Anna’s birthday a few weeks ago. We had beautiful quizzers visit us from all over and that ruled.  You rule.  We all rule.  Lindsay2 showed me pictures of her and her pretty pibble, Bowie, and that was very calming.  Laura

Quizmasters Are Always Looking For A Mind At Work
Rev. Lindsay

Despite listening to the Hamilton cast album damn near on repeat for the last two months, I think that might be the first reference I’ve written into a blog… or not… I dunno.  It consumes my waking days. Speaking of consuming my waking days, this is the third quiz in a row I’ve hosted this week, and while I expected to be completely worn out and spent, seeing all of you completely reinvigorated me!  Such a fantastic night and a wonderful crowd.  I heart y’all bunches.  We had a first place tiebreaker with new faces for a change, which resulted in House Hodor winding up in first and Boo! Duhh…

As Per Usual: All I Can Think About Is Butts
Rev. Lindsay

But today, I dressed for it.  I, Tina Belcher, gave you a quiz tonight.  I managed to not hide under the table the whole night, and I’m resisting the urge to make this entire blog erotic fan fiction, so I’m doing well.  Tonight I was assisted by Lola Bunny of Space Jam fame in the pursuit of scoring and bonus questioning and watching things so I could daydream about Jimmy Pesto Jr. in peace. Halloween in full effect!  There was candy and a team full of the cast of Inside Out, and much chicanery and scary movies in the background.  Keeping in thematic feeling, round two celebrated masked and costumed artists, round four featured monsters,

In Which Lindsay2 Forgets To Mention That Is Her Birthday-Eve
Rev. Lindsay

Little did I know that when I pulled up the Facebooks this morning, I would see that little QM Lindsay2 is hitting her quarter-of-a-century mark today.  She mentioned her birthday casually last night, but it seemed like it was next week or something.  Clearly, I need to work on my a) listening skills and b) stalking skills, because goddammit, I love making a big deal about people’s birthdays and who else deserves a damn mardi gras parade through the Nomad parking lot more than Lindsay2?  No one.  Except Baby Bear maybe, but he’s not there.  And maybe QM Alyssa for finally stopping in for a visit

I Like It When I Get Greeted With “I Thought You Were Patti LuPone”
Rev. Lindsay

No seriously.  A player told me that.  It was awesome.  Then I told him I’d disappoint him with my singing.  At least I can do her attitude when I need to.  I mean... me and Pats could totes be twinsies… am I right?  We had a full house back in effect at Nomad which was awesome!  Y’all killed it too.  A bunch of new teams owned this week!  Anna from This Is Your Brain On Party Hats chose to celebrate her birthday with us so I retaliated with The Ting Tings’ cover of “Happy Birthday” from Yo Gabba Gabba.

2015: QM RevLinz, at Nomad, with extremely pointy pencils
Rev. Lindsay

Snuggly groups are the best! And I still hate sportsball! For reals. But at least it is Texas teams I am being subjected to so it's easier for me to pretend that I’m not raging.  I would rather be rooting for the local diners or bands I support from those towns though.  Like instead of Astros, I'm all "GO HOUSE OF PIE! AND GO LOS SKARNALES! WHOOOOOOO 30 FOOT FALL!" and instead of the Rangers, I'm like "YEEEEEEESSSSSSS! CAFE BRAZIL! GET 'EM BUZZ BREWS! YOU KNOW BOWLING FOR SOUP IS THE BEST! SHOW EM HOW IT'S DONE ERIK CHANDLER AND THE MULBERRY STREET SOCIALITES!" In other news of my fandoms, I spent last week at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter so

One More For Baby Bear, And One More For The Road…
Baby Bear

There are a lot of fricking awesome things Quizmasters get to do. Yell at people, insult their intelligence, wear silly costumes, do fun impressions, laugh. Sometimes we do all of those things in one night. Sometimes we get to do them for a long time and if we’re lucky, when its time (and you have health problems), you can leave on the note you want to end on. Which is exactly what tonight was all about… That’s right! Baby Bear is going on a sabbatical! Don’t worry, I’ll pop around from time to time and make your lives just that much better. You’re welcome. But I am really fortunate to work for an amazing company such as Geeks Who Drink who are

Next Week: All Team Names Should Be Cards Against Humanity Based
Rev. Lindsay

Wow wow wow wow!  I missed you guys last week!  The fair Baby Bear and I were helming the Doctor Who theme quiz and I hear we missed quite the party.  Baby Bear was so partied out second hand he couldn’t be here this week, but that’s okay because we got to break in brand new QM Lindsay2* as our scorekeeper!  The Rare But Very Real Possibility of Dying in a Plane Crash named like a CAH card stole our hearts, and Leash Your Kids, Not My Dogs wanted a special shout out for their amusing team name.  I’ve seen the team
