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

Marlon, It’s Your Birthday! Happy Birthday Marlon!
Rev. Lindsay

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

In the Year 2016, No One Remembers What Album Art Looks Like
Rev. Lindsay

That goes out to the 4/5ths of the teams that gave round six a double deuce. To the 1/5th that nailed it… good job and high fives!   Now, I wrote half of this blog last night in my head and promptly forgot it, and now remembered parts of it… in short: ADHD brain is the worst because I can’t remember the funniest parts.   Something about liking movies like Donnie Darko (spurred on by reminding someone where Sparkle Motion got their team name from) not on merit but more because of the quality soundtrack… there was a whole long rant.  It was choice.  Just trust me on that.   Anyway!

You Can’t Expect Me To Say “1776” Normally Anymore
Rev. Lindsay

Since last July, it will always be “Sev-Sev-Seventeen Seventy Six”. And we’re lucky that I have enough self-control to not follow it up with the rest of the lyrics from “Aaron Burr, Sir”… no such thing as too much Hamilton.   That said…   HI EVERYONE! I was soooo nervous that we were either going to have too few or too many teams due to the Disney theme quiz we were hosting elsewhere tonight, but it turned out that we had it juuuuust right.  So many new players and returning champs!  This Is You Brain On Hugs messed up their re-entry into first place by having a seventh

After last week’s grand display of how much whiskey I can drink and still successfully host quiz, I imbibed half as much and still felt as awesome as I did last Friday morning, this morning.  Go team!   Speaking of team! Welcome one and all, our new Scorekeeper: SK Melissa! She’s so fantastic, I let her program her own playlist for quiz and it’s the first time ever Marlon has asked me to turn it up.    Motörhead… they bring people together.   Also, Melissa is my first scorekeeper that gives a damn about sports, and as a Pittsburghian (that’s right,

This Evening Brought To You By The Celebration Of My Latest Trip Around Sun
Rev. Lindsay

Welcome to my birthday quiz! Or the recap of it. What I can remember of it. We started with QM Stephen being the best-mother-effing co-host/sidekick/ride-or-die homie ever, bringing in party hats, candy, noise makers, and of course, clearing up after my sloppy ass at the end. Then, Genevieve brought me some red velvet Gryffindor cupcakes. Then, This Is Your Brain On Hugs gave me a bag fulla goodies. THEN… well, I had four-too-many Jame-os and quiz happened. We also had my husband “Mr Lindsay” come to Nomad for the first time ever, and apparently I called him my “red headed Adonis” multiple

You Guys Actually Liked Your Sub!
Chels

You guys made Mike and I feel so welcome! And a couple teams said that they always miss Lindsay and they are usually skeptical at whoever subs, but that I did a good job. Thanks! I like hosting, so that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Lindsay was incapacitated last night. She has the most amazing life. She was surfing off the coast of Hawaii, when a big wave came up and totally thrashed her around. Luckily, there was a sea otter close by to rescue her. He brought her back to shore safely and then disappeared back into the ocean. She named him Nomad in honor of all her quizzers that were missing her. This whole ordeal

This Evening Brought To You By My Abject Grief Over Lindsay2 Moving
Rev. Lindsay

At least if I have a sad, I’m gonna treat y’all the way I treat myself: put Italian Cream Cake and Chocolate Fudge Cake on it.  Cover feels with sugar.  It’s proven to work.  That’s just science.  Jameson also has sugar in it, so that’s what I had of course. They should really sponsor me like a racecar driver. So yeah… it was Lindsay2’s last night with us on the Couch of Love.  Thank you to everyone for coming out, wishing her well, and playing the game with us!  It’s been a fantastic seven months with my co-named, fellow wizard, lover of Broad City, right hand lady.

This Evening Brought To You By Topo Chico (all over my laptop)
Rev. Lindsay

I remembered to bring a Facebook bonus question prize this week, so I thought I was doing well. I had enough time to make a Prince tribute candle to add to the Lemmy/Bowie/Rickman tribute candles, so I thought I was doing well. We had 21 teams, so I thought I was doing well. The sound was working fine as far as I knew, so I thought I was doing well. Wait, scratch that last one. Because when a gentleman playing on the patio came over to tell me that he was having a hard time hearing outside, I promptly whacked my full bottle of Topo Chico onto my wide-open laptop.  In the middle

Guys, you have me all weak in the knees with my love for you.  I’m all sorts of a SWV song over here.  My new besties (whose team name I forgot to ask…) Stephanie, Jessie, Kelley, and Tallory kept me hella entertained last night.  I was explaining that I didn’t forget a previous interaction (read: bonding over Hamilton) but that at a certain point I see so many people in a week that I get face swap issues, and remember mostly who I was talking to about what… but then again I talk so much in any given week, I don’t even know half the time… I’m sorry I’m the worst.  Anyway, those

So yeah.  Quizzin’ goodness.  You guys rocked it tonight!  The Most Interesting Team in the World panicked a little when they didn’t circle their round two joker, but it turned out okay when they circled it for round eight and got the same score for both rounds anyway.
