Halloween is almost upon us! I love this time of year even if it was like 94 degrees out today. The excuse for spookiness and dressing up in costumes is stronger than how uncomfortable the continued bullshit heat is. With quiz the day before Halloween this year, we are going to have a costume contest with prizes that will probably suck but you know, it is the journey not the destination.

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was e.g. Echo Golf and it all the answers were in the NATO phonetic alphabet. Teams did pretty well here but India and Mike caused some problems for some teams. People largely got Whiskey though which is very fitting.

The first audio round was Who Doesn’t Like Soft Jazz and apparently the answer was plenty of tonight’s teams as scores were pretty low across the board. I guess soft jazz covers of songs aren’t nearly as easy as I thought they would be. Breakfast in America tripped a lot of teams up as did Gypsy Woman by Crystal Waters. No one got that one at all so either that was a hard one to decipher or no one knew about that song. Not sure which.

Round 3 was a speed round about professional sports teams with colors in their titles that didn’t included the name of the city. So that put the Greenbay Packers right out. Teams did pretty well here for the most part but there were a few teams I am convinced have never heard of sports in the first place let alone any particular team names.

Round 4 was Great Caesar’s Ghost and it was a round on Caesars and ghosts. This was another round with big scores with intimate knowledge of Coldplay, Hogwarts, Field of Dreams, and Kaisers. Some teams struggled with the Ides of March in roman numerals and many got Pontius Pilate with Caesar Augustus.

The visual round was BooTube and teams had to name the show depicted in pictures from their Halloween episode.  Only three teams failed to get a perfect round here so clearly you cats know your Halloween episodes. It was both good and sad to see the Freaks & Geeks pic. I miss that show.  

Round 6 was Coke, Brothers, and the Koch Brothers.  Just like it sounds it was a round on the soft drink company, male siblings and the Koch Brothers. Can I just say how difficult it was not to pronounce their name ‘cock brothers?’ I am a little disturbed by this because why is my brain short-cutting to ‘cock?’ Do I say cock too much? Why do I say it so much? What is this crazy hold cock has over me? Wait, that came out wrong…

Round 7 was the Kinsey Scale and teams had to name movie or TV show with bisexual or sexually fluid characters. This was a pretty rough round for most teams. Not a lot of teams recognized Glee, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Game of Thrones which is too bad because a lot of teams are apparently working around the penis.

Round 8 was, as always, Random knowledge and it was here that fortunes were made and lost with every team but one jokering here. Scores here were not great but in some cases it was enough to turn the tables and in other cases it wasn’t nearly enough. No one knew that Dr Dolittle’s two-headed gazelle-unicorn cross was called a Pushmi-pullyu. Not a lot of teams knew what unspayed female cats were called. And of course what they were called is Queen. Seriously, how was this not obvious.

As the smoke of the heated battle began to clear and the last teams stood pregnant with the joys of victory. It was also still a crowded battlefield as we had a tie for first. Magnets! How Do They Work? faced down Q Money for a sudden death round…only to tie again. Another tie breaker question was what it took for a winner to emerge and Magnets stepped up to claim total victory. Scores were very close tonight with just one point standing between the top two teams and the third place team. It was an exciting end to quiz. James snagged some GWD stickers in the email bonus  portion . It was another great night at Quiz!

Remember the Ghostbusters theme quiz is come on October 25th. Check this website for details as far as time, location and rules go. Have a great week and I hope to see you next week.

Looking at the box office this coming weekend I am kind of bummed. We have Dracula Untold coming out which sort of passes as horror fare but come on.  I am kind of annoyed by the constant  connection between Vlad the Impaler the historical figure and Dracula. Sure that was a nickname of Vlad but he was just an inspiration for the character and connecting the two as the same has always annoyed me.  Stupid Francis Ford Coppola. Anyway, it doesn’t look like there is too much to look forward to horror moviewise until Horns comes out on Halloween. Oh well. That is why DVDs are awesome things.

Here’s the recap:

Man this was a rough quiz for most teams with a number of rounds really kicking teams’ asses. From the jump Round 1 left a lot of teams in the cold. The theme was Let’s Get Crazy and it was all about things with crazy in the title. A few teams had perfect scores but most were pretty low.

The same goes for Round 2 with mostly basement level scores aside from one team who pulled 14 points but did not use their joker. Eight Songs, Twelve Answers did not treat most teams well. Round 3 went a little better  as several teams knew a bit about the Roosevelts. It was an either or round though so it is hard to tell if guessing.

Round 4 was a round about Courthouses and morning television and a lot more teams did a lot better on this round. Not a lot of teams knew about Dred Scott and The Crucible threw some teams for a loop but over all this round went down a lot easier.

The visual round was all about naming the cartoon the characters shown were from and teams did pretty well here as long as we aren’t talking about Fritz the Cat which few teams knew.

Round 6 was 35 Years Ago in Stuff and it was all about shit from 1979. There were not nearly as many older people as I would have hoped as scores were pretty low here as well. Few teams knew about Intellivision and Compuserv. Sid Vicious was even tough for some teams. Round 7 was an audio round that treated teams pretty dirty with only one team coming up with a perfect score while others wondered what the fuck Ghost World and Hustle and Flow were.

Round 8 was Random knowledge as usual and it was rough on most teams. One team, however, managed 14 points with a joker. This is the same team that came up with 14 points in Round 2 so it is no real surprise that Where in the World is Eric Von Detten took top honors in 1st place. We Got Nothin’ This Week trailed in second and Mitch took the Bonus.

It was a rough one tonight guys but I hope you all had fun anyway and I hope to see you all next week at Geeks Who Drink!

It is October! I am super excited as it is the time when things start thinking about getting cooler in Arizona and it is Halloween time. Halloween has always been my favorite holiday stretching back even to the time when my fourth grade teacher told us all we were going to hell for dressing up. Then she plunged into a crazy anti-catholic tirade while teaching us about Martin Luther. Christian elementary school was nuts. Anyway, I am looking forward to a month of horror movies and spooky things. We still have a ways to go before Halloween but I plan on getting into the spirit all month.

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was Recently in Stuff and most teams slaughtered this round. Apparently you guys are really up on current events. I was a little disturbed by the teams who missed Trent Reznor as the composer of Gone Girl and who is Nine Inch Nails. This was especially heartbreaking given that I really wanted to go to the sneak preview of the movie tonight. But I am dedicated and hosted quiz. You’re welcome.

The first audio round was Cool Stories, Bro and it was a collection of mostly terrible songs that tell stories about several characters.  Teams were a bit mixed here with some high scores and lower scores but only a couple of teams got Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch for Wildside. This makes Mark Wahlberg cry and why would you do that to him? It isn’t his fault he has a superfluous nipple.

Round 3 was a speed round asking for eight of the 10 states in which 7/8ths of the population reported  ‘white alone.’ That phrase, white alone, sounds really weird to me like it is out of a horror movie or some such thing. “This summer she will be…WHITE ALONE.” Maybe it is just me. I am pretty tired.

Round 4 was Livin’ the Lore and it was all about fairy tales in pop culture. Teams were pretty well in the middle on this one. Not too many teams knew Carly Rae Jepsen which is for the best. Not too many teams knew about Into the Woods either which does not bode well for the upcoming movie releasing on Christmas day this year. Ouch.

Round 5 was crazy if only because every team got a perfect score. I don’t think that has ever happened before  in my time as Quizmaster and it essentially rendered the round a wash. You guys know your brands.

Round 6 was a Before and after Round that centered around a fast food menu item and song that shares a common word or syllable.  This was a divided round with some teams doing pretty well and some teams crashing and burning. Honestly I am impressed whenever anybody gets any of these things. Sometimes, even when people miss them they are pretty hilarious. Like rather than Whoppersonal Jesus one team offered My Own Personal King of the Jews. So close but so very far away.

The second audio round was Well Shit, Now I Want to Play Sports and it was clips of inspirational speeches from sports movies.  This was a little sketchy for teams as some did well and some not so much. Lots of teams missed the Bad News Bears, Friday Night Lights, and Meatballs. Meatballs doesn’t surprise me really given that it was camp movie and not a sports movie. Props to the team that said Space Jam given it was a sports movie and had Bill Murray.

Round 8 was random knowledge as usual and we had some huge scores here from teams that had already jokered with two teams getting 15 points. Most missed was Marvin Stone inventing the straw because of getting leaves in his mouth from mint juleps and Jim Carey being in Horton Hears a Who.

At the end of the day Ebola: the Secret Service Couldn’t Keep it Out took top honors with an early joker in round 2 and a 15 point round 8. Fairly close behind was Funemployed  who took second with a late joker that made a ton of difference. Matt took home some Sky High matches from the email bonus question.

That is all for this week kids. Thanks for putting up with me and I’ll see you all next week for more Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz!
