It was nice to see a full house tonight for quiz with a lot of teams who came to play. I also get pretty excited when team rivalries crop up because I am competitive by nature and probably take it way too seriously. So once teams start gunning for each other it gets that much more interesting. I would like to see more of it and I think that it is a good thing I am not in any kind of position to support coliseum style gladiator combat because I am pretty sure I would have people mixing it up with tigers or grizzly bears at a speed that would be more horrifying than what would go on in the ring. I got into a weird area there but let’s just leave it at ‘I think competition is good’ and call it a night.  

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was She Feeded Me with Science and it was all about sciencey shit having to do with food. Teams rocked this pretty hard which makes it a bit weird insofar as there was no one stumbling block for teams. The agent that causes the fizz in most beer threw some teams. Emulsions tripped some teams up and sulfur made some teams cry but it really doesn’t matter as most teams came up with sevens and eights.

The first audio round was a whole different ballgame, however, as the theme was You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth. Teams heard clips of songs that used samples of other songs and had to name both songs. This did not go well. One thing that was really weird was how many of these things were Eminem songs. I never really realized how much that dude uses samples of other stuff but it is a lot. It is all pretty badass though so it certainly isn’t a bad thing. Also, I was excited to see Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth with Money in My Hand by Primitive Radio Gods make another appearance. That song is sweet.

Round 3 was Slim Badbody Isn’t Feeling Too Good. I hated this round. I hated the medical terminology that I couldn’t pronounce if my dick was on fire and proper pronunciation of these words is the only thing that could put it out. I am not sure if that is a medical condition but if it were I am sure that I couldn’t pronouncing while burning to death in the worst place ever to be burning to death from.

Things got sort of biblical with Round 4 which was Jacob and Sons. Teams had to answer questions in which each answer was the name of one of Jacob’s sons.  You didn’t really need to know about the bible to answer most of these as they were pretty much questions about current things but this round still treated some teams roughly. Apparently not too many teams watched the Waltons to know that the Grandpa was named Zebulon. That might be the coolest name ever.

The visual round was You’re NOT the Father! and it was a bunch of movie and tv shows with adoptive dads in them. No one got Freddy’s Dead the Final Nightmare which is kind of too bad because Alice Cooper was pretty awesome as Freddy’s douchbag step dad even if the movie was a piece of horrible shit. Other than that one, teams did pretty well here.

Round 6 was Occupied and it was a round on toilets, plumbing and poop. I was surprised by how many teams whiffed what the W stands for in the WCS for the space shuttle’s toilet. It was Waste. I think maybe some teams thought the S stood for shit and waste would be redundant. I don’t know that for sure but it is my theory.

The second visual round was Lens Flare A-Go-Go and it was clips from movies and TV shows that JJ Abrams has written, directed, and/or produced. Teams did pretty well here for the most part although there was some confusion on which Mission Impossible Abrams directed and had the late Seymour Hoffman threatening to kill Tom Cruise in front of his wife. Just about everybody knew Alias and I was kind of surprised that even in just that one little clip the show sucks balls.

Round 8 was Random Knowledge as always and with one notable exception it was kind of rough on teams.  Hobbit titles threw some teams for a loop and Man or Muppet confused some teams as well. Most teams were on point with whether or not Malia Obama, Kendall Jenner, and Angus T Jones were under age. Ray Rice’s firing was spoiled by a couple of our team names so that was a free point for most teams who were paying attention.

This was a game of shifting fortunes with the top spot sliding around as teams rose and fell at the whims of whatever quiz gods there be. When the dust settled Shaving It Until Marriage took the top spot with Chekhov’s Gun close at their heels. Laura took home the email bonus prize again in a continuation of Chekhov’s Gun’s complete dominance in the email bonus game. Seriously guys if you start answering there is a good chance you might win. Just saying.

That is it for this week! See you next time!

Wow so it was an intimate group tonight with only seven teams competing. Not sure if it was the rain, football, or that everyone thinks I smell but it was kind of nice for us all to be cozy. That being said, I missed a lot of teams and I hope I see them next week.

Here’s the Recap:

Round 1 was All of the Ding-a-Lings in which all of the answers involved a Ling or a Ding. Teams did pretty well here with only Grinding in RPGs and Sublingual giving anyone any problems.  There was a question about Dingoes and I have to say I am sad that it didn’t involve Oz from Buffy’s band Dingoes Ate My Baby. Oh well, you can’t always get what you want.

The first audio round was Stand Up, Sit Down, Fight, Fight, Fight! And while a few teams struggled one team got a perfect score which put them in a long lead. Everyone knew ABC by the Jackson 5 and Get Up Stand Up by Bob Marley. Poor KC & the Sunshine Band kept getting confused with Earth, Wind and Fire.

Round 3 was a nightmare for me as far as pronunciation goes particularly when talking about perineal urethrostomy. I hated that question a lot but the answer was penis and it gave me the chance to make the questionable statement that you should always choose penis. This was sort of spurious and self-serving but I still stand by the sentiment. I also stand by the sentiment that claws should be chosen over nads but the more I think about this the less any of it makes any sense at all.

Round 4 was Before We Knew Them and it was predictably about people and things before they were well known.  This round didn’t go down as well for most teams as a lot of others did. Not a lot of teams knew about Tiffany Blue and Belize was elusive but most teams knew the working title of American Pie which was ‘Teenage Sex Comedy That Can Be Made For Less Than $10 Million That Your Reader Will Love But the Executive Will Hate.’ Sure that one is long and unwieldy but I still like it better, pie fucking aside.

The Visual Round was all about Pimps with It Ain’t Easy. Teams did pretty well here but not a lot of them have seen I’m Gonna Git You Sucka or Idiocracy which is too bad as those are both great. Especially I’m Gonna Git You Sucka. Those aquarium platform shoes are the best ever.  I am not sure which bothers me more, that most teams knew My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic or that My Little Pony has a Pimp. Apparently friendship is not only magic but is also for sale.

Round 6 was Ten Points for Bartflasting and it was all about weird ass sports from around the world. Holy shit, Buzkashi involves a fucking goat carcass? What the hell is going on in Afghanistan? When even the Taliban puts the breaks on your sport you know you have REALLY crossed the line.  Also, I really want to play Zorb. That sounds like the best thing ever.

Round 7 was Ed O’Neill Is Everywhere and it featured Ed O’Neill clips from TV and movies and teams had to answer questions I had about them. Teams were pretty divided here as some knew all about Ed’s stuff and some who may not have known who we were talking about in the first place. Pretty much everyone knew Modern Family but after that all bets were off. The clip from Wayne’s World is one of my favorite scenes in the movie so I was glad to see a lot of teams knew it. Likewise with the clip from the Adventures of Ford Fairlane which is a guilty pleasure of mine and whose soundtrack introduced me to one of my favorite bands (when I was in Middle School and High School) Queensryche.

Round 8 was Random Knowledge as usual and some fortunes changed while the dominating team dominated even harder. This is another round that was half and half with scores. Just about everyone knew that Take My Breath Away was from Top Gun and now that song is stuck in my head. Most teams knew the boiling point of water on the Celsius scale and its position in relation to the Kelvin scale. When it came to what show Satriale’s Pork Store and Double R Diner were from, however, few teams could come up with them. Most teams knew that Big Kahuna Burger was from Pulp Fiction (or From Dusk Til Dawn or Grindhouse as well, but no one answered those).

At the end of it all, ISIS is Losing Their Head Again steamrolled the competition with a ridiculously high score thanks to a perfect round 2 joker and a 14 point round 8. Coming in second was Chekhov’s Gun with a wide gap between them but an impressive score in their own right. Laura won a Geeks Who Drink pint glass for the email bonus question. It was a small group but everyone fought hard and had fun. Please join us again next week for Geeks Who Drink!

After making the decision to put in my notice at my day job, the ensuing awkwardness of the following two weeks has become more apparent to me than it ever has been before. It feels like you have just broken up with your significant other but have decided to keep living together. This is especially true if you already have another job and you are just going through the motions knowing that there is something new and ostensibly better waiting for you just beyond the haze of uncomfortable small talk and pretending that you aren’t just biding time and watching the clock. I get why the two week notice is the right thing to do and what it is for but it is a nightmare for someone with social anxiety and a newfound awareness of just how uncomfortable this whole process is.

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was Recently in Stuff: Mostly Non-Depressing Edition and the mostly there was the operative word as some teams found it more depressing that not what with Richard Attenborough’s death and the Earthquake in Napa. Scores were super high for the most part so maybe that is where  the non-depressing part comes in.

The first audio round was I’ve Got the Blues and this was a pretty devastating round for teams as the only two answers teams got consistently correct were Toby Keith’s Courtesy of the Red, White & Blue, and Blue by Eiffel 65. I am kind of more alarmed by the Toby Keith thing than the low scores here but hey whatever guys, if you want to listen to Toby Keith more than classic Madonna, who am I to judge?

Round 3 was a speed round on DC super heroes who have headlined their own movies. Guys, this was pretty embarrassing given that most teams’ lists were half Marvel characters. That being said I think it is more DC doing a really shitty job of making and promoting movies than our teams not knowing their shit. Still Spider-man, Captain America, Ghost Rider, Fantastic Four, and the Hulk are all Marvel and Wonder Woman and the Flash haven’t had their own movies. Just to throw it out there.

Jam On It! Was the theme of Round 4 and centered around nuclei and fruit spreads and apparently most teams know their nuclei and fruit spreads. The seed of a snowflake was the one answer that really gave teams problems. Mentos, the Freshmaker, is one that gave no one problems.

The visual round was identifying eye brow raises and teams nailed this one pretty hard. The only one that consistently gave teams problems was Vivian Leigh with a lot of teams going with Betty Davis and Joan Crawford. No one missed the Rock because of course not. That is as it should be.

Round 6 was Dancing With Mr. Brownstone and it was about Guns N Roses and Urban Architecture. Some teams did well here but for most teams it was a half and half proposition as the majority got 4 points here.  The Everly Brothers threw teams for a loop in a question about one of their daughters dating Axl. The song example was ‘All I Can Do Is Dream’ but once Axl was in the picture I imagine that the title had to be expanded to say ‘All I Can Do is Dream That Axl Doesn’t Give My Daughter Chlamydia.’

Round 7 was fairly roundly reviled by teams and no one got above a 4 as no one got several of the answers in I Am a Musician, but I Don’t Play One on TV. Twin Peaks, Boston Public, and Degrassi: The Next Generation stumped everyone.

Round 8 was Random Knowledge as usual. I sort of fucked it up by omitting question 3 initially. It all worked out for the most part as some teams used the joker to boost their score. Some teams struggled here as well but there were no excessively low scores. Thomas Cromwell getting his head taken off by Henry VIII was one question that no one got correct although some teams were close.

At the end of it all, the order never really changed all game with the number one team maintaining the whole game to pull a very narrow two point victory. Chekhov’s Gun claimed the top spot while In Space No One Can Hear You Orgasm took second. Chekhov’s Gun continued their email bonus winning streak as Laura took home some Fuck Yourself matches. I am not sure what fucking yourself has to do with matches but whatever. Hey you know, I read once that if more teams took part in the email bonus drawing they might be able to beat this streak. Just saying.

Thanks again to everyone who came out tonight and I hope to see you all back next week for more Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz!
