Patrick (Patsquatch)

Patsquatch is the author of four books and three movies. In addition he is an avid gamer, artist, musician, actor, martial artist, and film buff. 

Well here we are a couple of days after St Patrick’s Day, one of the holidays in which amateurs go out and drink way too much and make massive fools of themselves and hopefully not kill anyone on the way home. I make it a point not to go out on St Patrick’s Day or Cinco De Mayo or New Year’s because it isn’t worth the aggravation of dealing with sloppy drunks and asshats all night. So now we push forward to Easter which is another holiday I ignore but for entirely different reasons. Really I just like Halloween.  Because costumes are fun and I am apparently four.

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was I Didn’t Mean It THAT Way and teams had to name the word whose meaning has changed. Scores were pretty mixed here with salary and ejaculate causing a lot of problems…you know, just like in life.

Round 2 was a rough one for teams as they had to listen to collaborations between a Rock Hall of Famer and someone who isn’t and name the two artists as opposed to naming titles. This was not a great round for anybody really and answers were all over the place. There weren’t really any most missed although Santana and Rob Thomas get the honor of ‘the one that everyone knew.’  Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes were easily the most missed which is interesting if only because The Time of My Life was probably the most well-known song on the list.

Round 3 was Never Say Never and it was a round on things that come back. This was a troubling round insofar as how many teams have apparently not paid any attention whatsoever to all the Avengers Age of Ultron trailers going around given that several answered Galactus to the killer robot question. I don’t know, maybe the Age of Ultron trailers haven’t started showing on TV and only geeks and nerds like me are watching them obsessively online. Who knows? Also, to the teams who answered Dig for Fire for the Twin Peaks movie question, please tell me how the hell one digs for fire? If there are fires underground you can get to by digging then we have some pretty big problems.

Round 4 was the Final Count-up and it was all questions with final in them. Most teams knew Jason Vorhees but there were a few who went with Freddy Kruger. Freddy never really had to take Manhattan which is nice. He also never went to space. Both of these things should have meant that he win in Freddy Vs Jason but alas it was not to be.  Teams did pretty well on this one although the number of people who thought Superman did mime to beat Darkseid was troubling…although really that isn’t too much more ridiculous than him singing. To tell you the truth I think this kind of horseshit is what settles the argument over Marvel Vs DC. You can think Captain America is lame all you want but he would never sing someone into submission. I have to imagine the next panel after Supes’s musical number was Batman with a gun in his mouth.

The visual round was a celebration of Bruce Willis turning 60 and it was all scenes from Willis movies.  The majority of teams kicked ass here but there were some people who mistook the 5th Element for Die Hard which doesn’t make a ton of sense to me but then neither did the last Die Hard movie.

Round 6 was I’m Imelda Marcos, and I Approved This Round. It was all about shoes. Teams did pretty well here with a lot of teams missing that Shoe involves birds who work at a newspaper and a few teams didn’t pan out In Her Shoes but by and large teams killed it.

Round 7 was Simon Says and it was pretty brutal for a lot of teams. I played clips from shoes the late Sam Simon was credited as a writer, producer, or director and teams had to name the show.  The vast majority of scores here were fours and teams missed shows all across the spectrum. Fat Albert, the Tracey Ullman Show, and Taxi really caused problems for a lot of teams.

Round 8 was Random Knowledge as always and there were a few teams that really stepped up and did well here. Not nearly as many teams got the Sea World question as I thought would and not a ton knew LA Law but most teams know their Operation. Lots of teams nailed the states that border more than one Canadian province. It was a pretty solid round.

When it was all said and done, the neck and neck race that was maintaining all game broke apart as Not Racist Enough to be a Frat Boy pulled ahead with Shreddin the Gnarledge hot on their heels. Mauricius won the email bonus question and netted himself a banner marked Despair. That is an uplifting prize if I have ever heard one.

That wraps up another week of Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at Bumsted’s I hope to see you all back again next week!

Patrick (Patsquatch)

Patsquatch is the author of four books and three movies. In addition he is an avid gamer, artist, musician, actor, martial artist, and film buff. 

Well it is that time of year where I have to admit to being a year older and have to suffer through the holiday that I am named after because my Mom got my birthday confused with it. I am not sure if anyone really appreciates how much that sucks but it wouldn’t be so bad had she made Patrick my first name. Nope. She had to make it my middle name and then call me that forever dooming me to torturous roll calls and moments when I get passed over for things because I just don’t answer to James because it isn’t my name. I started going by J Patrick just to try to help people make the connection in my names but that just makes people call me J or J Patrick. This is a pretty big bummer. So happy St Patrick’s day guys and try not to pee too much green the next day.

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was Get Wet in which all the answers were also the name of a sea. This round was a bit mixed with about half doing well and the other half not so much. Not a lot of teams knew there was a Cosmonaut sea in the Antarctic which is understandable. What wasn’t so understandable was people answering C++ for the question about the programming language. C++ isn’t a sea.

Round 2 was the first audio round which was a Night at the Popera in which I played opera covers of pop songs and teams gave me the original title and artist. Teams did pretty well here which is impressive because I can’t imagine how anyone managed Gangnam Style by Psy Katy Perry’s ET was also a stumbling point for some teams.

Round 3 was The Greatest Thing Since What Now? Teams had to tell me if the event I read happened before or after the advent of sliced bread. Scores were pretty middle of the road here which is fairly common when dealing with a 50/50 round. There didn’t really seem to be any most missed question here as they were all pretty even.

Round 4 was G-ography and was all about places that start with G. This was another middle of the road round with Grenada and Africa throwing a wrench in a lot of teams’ plans. Not too many teams knew about the Blue Note.  Some Carolina confusion also happened as well. This was a pretty bad round all things considered.

The visual round was Little Green Men and teams had to name the aliens pictured. Again the scores here were middle of the road.  Lots of teams missed the Martian Manhunter and Irisa but I was fairly well impressed by the number of teams who knew Diva Plavalaguna. I can’t imagine remembering much about her when she showed up during the coolest fight scene in the Fifth Element.

Round 6 was Triskaidekaquizia and it was about fear, Friday, and the number 13. The number of people who didn’t know that Danzig’s Thirteen was on Johnny Cash’s album kind of freaks me out. I was also very sad how few teams knew that King Friday’s wife was named Queen Saturday. I understand that Mr Rogers’ Neighborhood was a long time ago but holy shit. Now I feel really old you guys.

Round 7 was Out of the Box in which teams had to name the TV game show based upon a board game or toy.  More middling scores plagued teams here particularly Scrabble, Pictionary, and Boggle. On the other hand, teams were fairly well checked out on Scattergories, Battleship, Operation, and Bop It. I don’t know what the fuck Bop It is and I am kind of shocked that I am apparently the only one.

Round 8 was Random Knowledge as usual and this one was not a kind one for most teams. One team destroyed it but most were more middle of the road. The four most-spoken languages in the US that aren’t English and Spanish threw teams for a loop. Part of this was because a lot of teams pitched Mandarin and Cantonese and the answer lumped them both together. Not many teams knew that Billy Crystal won the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor although most Knew about Tina Fey and Will Ferrell.

When all was said and done As Fozzie Told Frodo One Does Not Simply Wakka Wakka Wakka into Mordor took the top spot with a 14 point jokered round 8 with Joe Biden is My Spirit Animal taking 2nd. Jason scored a sweet tote bag for the email bonus question which was nice and handy too. That is that for another week of Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz, see you next time!

Patsquatch is the author of four books and three movies. In addition he is an avid gamer, artist, musician, actor, martial artist, and film buff. 

It was a pretty packed house tonight and it was a good example of how fun quiz can be with the group we pull in. The Bumsted’s crowd is always great and tonight was proof positive. Thank you for being so cool and making it a great time. Today was a really rough day for me and it was nice to host quiz with such awesome people around. I appreciate you guys a ton.

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was recently in stuff and as ever I was impressed with how up on current events everyone is. Most teams dominated here with a lot of perfect scores. A few teams were confused on A-Rod which makes sense given the Yankees are the devil. A few teams messed up with Jeff Gordon which also makes sense because NASCAR.

The first audio round was Up Close and Personal and featured songs with close and/or personal in the title. This was a rough round for most teams and there were really none that stood out as most missed. Some teams even missed the Police.

Round 3 was Anabolic Acting and I read real movie descriptions and teams had to tell me if it starred Hulk Hogan or Arnold Schwarzenegger. This was about half and half with teams and I am not sure which group was better off.  Reading the film descriptions out loud like this made me face some hard realities about movies that get made in this country. It is hard to imagine how struggling indy filmmakers don’t just open their wrists when they realize that Santa With Muscles got a budget and distribution.

Round 4 was ‘Hexasyllabary’ Should Totally Be a Word and while that title isn’t true at all, teams had to name the six-syllable word described. Teams were super solid here with only sanctimoniously tripping them up. I could be sanctimonious about it but I am going to take the high road on this one.

The visual round was Get to Work and teams had to identify the movie or show from the pictures. Teams were pretty middle of the road here with Rules of Engagement and A Different World providing the most trip ups. See what I did there? Trip? I am so sorry.

Round 6 was Shaqtaqular and all the questions were about Shaq and the goofy shit he has done in his career and beyond. This was a decent round for teams with Chris Christie and the Boston Pops being the main stumbling blocks. All that being said, how did a youtube video with Shaq using an Easy Bake Oven happen without anyone telling me? Dick move guys.

Round 7 was Fake Swedish Chef Hits the Great White Way and it was a fake Swedish Chef bork borking his way through Broadway songs and teams had to name the show they were from. This was more half and half as far as scores went. The Book of Mormon threw a lot of teams  and a lot of people guessed Cats for a good number of them which would really bum out the Amazing Alexander.

Round 8 was Random Knowledge as always and it was a rough one for a lot of teams. The three M’s on the Dow Jones caused some problems and a fair number of teams missed the Torino scale. The four US states that have borders with exactly two other states was also one that stymied a lot of teams. Some teams didn’t know that KITT was a Trans-Am which broke my heart a little.

At the end of it all, Millennium Falcon Made the Kessel Run in Par 5 took top honors with Neten-Yahoo coming in second. It was the first quiz in weeks with no ties at all and that made me happy. Adam took home a Geeks Who Drink pint glass for the email bonus question which he was pretty stoked about.

That is it for another week, thanks for coming and I will see you all next week!
