Last week I used this space to complain about Oscar snubs but this week I want to talk about the horrible fate of Dick Poop. If you didn’t hear about this, Dick Pope was nominated for Best Cinematographer for Mr. Turner and the President of the Academy called him Dick Poop during the announcement. Now, this is one of the funniest things I have ever seen but think for a minute about how mortifying this would be. He probably had his family around, told grandma and grandpa to get up early and watch only to be hit with a name that surely haunted him the entire length of school. I imagine that things went into slow motion for him and flashbacks of past torments came flooding back. And the deafening laughter of millions of people on the internet drowned out all sound. It is a real bummer and I feel horrible for the guy. But holy fuckbuckets it was hilarious.

Here’s the Recap:

Round 1 was The Incredible Shrinking Ball in which each answer will be spelled using letters in DEFLATE. Teams did great right out of the gate here. Apparently there was some dissention amongst some teams over the spelling of the word ‘Ladle.’ Luckily the teams in question were able to rise above the conflict and come together to rejoin the field of battle with other teams instead of themselves.

Round 2 was The Day in Overplay and teams had to name the title and artist of songs that were number one on the Billboard Hot 100 on this day in history. This one was a little tougher on teams with a fair amount of confusion on Le Freak by Chic and We Found Love by Rihanna. Somebody put the Beatles for the artist of I’m a Believer and as much as I love the Monkees I have to believe that that team has awoken a zombie John Lennon and unleashed an unholy horde of flesh eating monsters after us. Or, you know, maybe not.

Round 3 was Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, or a Dog and all the answers were one of those three choices. One of the questions here was a little silly because it asked which one starred on a show that one five straight Comedy Series Emmys in the 90’s and it necessarily had to be a dog because LeBlanc and Perry were both on the same show during the 90’s so it couldn’t have been both of them. Some teams did not put this together.

Round 4 was Jumbo Shrimp and Whatnot and all the answers were oxymorons. This was a fairly strong round for most teams although I did get a drawing of a penis back in the place of a correct True Lies answer. Bittersweet threw some teams who pitched White Chocolate and it struck me as racist somehow. I am not sure how and maybe I am misreading but yeah I am going with racist.

The visual round was Take the Cannoli and teams had to match the pastry to its country of origin. Lots of perfect scores here suggested that teams really knew their pastries.

Round 6 was Consume! and it was all about products shown at the CES show. A lot of teams did pretty well here although a fair number of teams offered Ferrari instead of Lamborghini. Plenty of teams knew that Petcube which is equipped with a laser but none of them could be bothered to answer FRIGGEN LASER BEAMS. WHY IS THAT SO HARD??? Sorry about that.

Round 7 was We Give One Single Fuck and it was all clips of the single time fuck was used in PG-13 movies.  There was some controversy here as some teams found the X-men First Class clip to be a bad clue. I counter that by saying that the clip straight up named two major characters in the movie and then had Wolverine saying fuck off. Pretty airtight to me guys.

Round 8 was Random Knowledge as usual and this one went down pretty hard for a lot of teams. The New Testament question was pretty rough for teams and Dirty Harry’s first movie Magnum Force was a problem for a lot of teams. Most knew First Blood and Pitch Black though so that is nice. I was surprised that most teams flubbed the Legend of Zelda questions not knowing Adventure of Link and Oracle of Ages. Too much time going after the Triforce of Power and not the Triforce of Wisdom, huh? OOOh sick burn.

At the end of the night Chekhov’s Gun came raging up the ranks to take the top spot while Last Week’s Name Was Better took second. Christiane took home some Go Fuck Yourself matches for the email bonus question and thus ended another awesome night at quiz. Don’t forget the Friends theme quiz next week and Geek Bowl coming up the weekend after that. And also don’t forget about my movie Copper Creek Genesis that is showing here in Tucson on February 6th. Hit me up on Facebook for more details on any or all of the above.  See you all next week!

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 is pretty well accepted that the Oscars are more about politics and nonsense than quality but as awards show go it usually gets a fair amount right if you are looking just at nominations. This year, the nominations were generally unsurprising and mostly on point but holy shit how did they snub Jake Gyllenhaal and the Lego Movie? Whether you liked Nightcrawler or not there is really no argument to be made that his performance wasn’t amazing. He was absolutely creepy as shit and committed 100%. My skin crawled the entire time and it was all due to Gyllenhaal’s performance. The best animated feature category is kind of an embarrassment of riches this year with Big Hero Six and How to Train Your Dragon 2…I can’t speak to the others but it is absolutely asinine that the Lego Movie wasn’t included. At least Everything is Awesome go a nomination for Best Original Song.

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was This Movie is Way Weirder Than I Expected and it was a round in which I gave hints and teams failed completely to tell me the name of the Best Picture winner I am looking for. I am not going to sugar coat this…This round was tough on teams. There were three zeroes and not much above three. There wasn’t really a most missed or most gotten question here. All of them were the most missed really.

Round 2’s audio round didn’t offer much joy either. A couple of teams managed some high scores but most teams had a rough time here as well. There were some higher scores here but still not much to be proud of for the most part.

Round 3 was MLK, Gandhi, or Braveheart and teams had to match the quote to the person who said it. Scores bounced back here a bit hovering around 6 as an average. Everyone managed the tag line from Braveheart so there is that at least.

Round 4 was Pioneering Women and it was all about the first females to do various things and frontier women. Scores started to really improve here with a lot of teams managing 7s and the night’s first natural 8! Lots of teams had problems with the first names of the actresses that played Laura and Mary on Little House on the Prairie but teams were generally solid here.

The visual round was #JeSuisCharlie and teams had to identify the Charlie pictured. Teams did pretty great here with Charlie XCX being the main stumbling block. Charlie McBoobypants was my favorite desperation answer. I was pretty happy to see Charlie the Unicorn showing up. I think everyone could use a trip to Candy Mountain even if it costs a kidney.

Round 6 was The Only Thing More Tedious Than a Russian Winter and it was all about Russian Literature. If I was going to pick a round that teams would start to dominate I wouldn’t necessarily have chosen Russian Literature but here we are. We had a spoiler for one of the questions by way of a regular team, Chekhov’s Gun. Had they missed that one I am pretty sure they would have had to leave in disgrace and never come back again. Thankfully, they nailed it and so did just about everyone else.

Round 7 was the second audio round Rupert Murdoch Presents: The Blame Game! and it featured sound clips of personalities blaming something terrible on something stupid. This round was physically painful for me. I don’t want to get political but holy fucking shit. I think Pat Robertson takes the cake with his ‘and this is a true story’ involving a Haitian pact with the devil. Those wacky devil pacts never pan out the way you want I guess.

Round 8 was Random Knowledge as usual and surprise, surprise it was a rough one. The past three popes, aside from the current one and the former nazi one, gave teams some problems and a startling amount of teams are unfamiliar with the Alas Poor Yorick monologue in Hamlet. The biggest source of contention was the wording of question eight which led to much confusion and consternation.

When it was all said and done, Navabros Before Navajos took first place with The Cumberbatch Kids in second. Adam scored the email bonus and another week was done. Don’t forget that Geek Bowl is coming up on February 7th and it is closer than it will be for something like six years so now is the time to strike. Also, the Friends theme quiz is coming up in a couple of weeks on 1/29. Check out the website for details on where and what time. That is it for me this week, see you all 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. 

There are a few things I want to talk about in the blog this week but none of them are particularly appropriate for the blog so I will just go straight to the recap after saying only that there is no scenario in which it is okay to kill another person over a joke, cartoon, or satire. Doesn’t seem like it is something that needs to be said but apparently it is.  

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was One in Twelve and I gave teams three hints and they had to tell me what month I was talking about. Teams came out strong and dominated this round. July and the second March question caused some trouble for some teams but generally speaking teams did great on this round.

The first audio round was Fake Chewbacca Sings the Hits and teams had to give me the name of the song and band that Chewbacca was yowling over. This round was crazy as we had 4 teams with perfect rounds and the lowest score was 12. Scores were so good here that it almost invalidated the whole round. I honestly thought teams would have more problems with the sultry stylings of Chewy singing the hits but they destroyed this round like Luke destroyed the Death Star.

As great as teams did on rounds 1 and 2, they did roughly as bad on Round 3’s Paltry speed round in which teams had 2 ½ minutes to name 8 of the 11 movies that Gwyneth Paltrow was in that made 22 million or more prior to Iron Man. Holy shit did teams not know much about Gwyneth’s movies. No shame in that, though. It just means that the place where Gwyneth Paltrow movies go in their brains is filled with something more useful and interesting. Because most things are.

Round 4 was The Year in Stuff 2015 in which the questions were all about things that happened in the news in the past eight days. Teams dominated this round and have obviously been paying attention to the news. There wasn’t really a most missed question here but I will say that it is kind of weird that we are like three weeks strong with questions about Space X. Apparently some writers like Elon Musk. At least they have cooled it a bit on the Burma/Myanmar questions.

Round 5 was You Blew It and teams had to name the movies that Netflix dropped from their streaming service on January 1st.  This was another super sturdy round for teams as only two teams got less than a 7. I am just pissed that Netflix put Batman and Robin on streaming instead of literally anything else made. I would rather it be a home video of a colonoscopy than Batman and Robin.

Round 6 was TV Rules and it was about small-screen government types. Results were a little more mixed here but scores were still pretty high. I was a little disturbed by the team that said Mel Brooks in reference to who played the first black president on a self-titled sketch show but at least no one put Ryan Gosling or something for the question about Idris Elba playing Nelson Mandela.

Round 7 was Questionable Content and teams had to name the film asking a question. Teams did well here generally but there were a few outliers that didn’t do so well. Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf seemed to cause some problems and Shall we Dance was a little tough for some teams. No shame in that whatsoever.

Round 8 was Random Knowledge as usual and again teams were pretty strong here for the most part. The Cuomos caused some problems as did Circuit City and what properties that Disney owns (it is a safer bet to just say yes to everything and you have a better than average chance of panning it out). Teams generally knew about Shredded Wheat and Triscuits so, you know, you have that going for you.

After a close game in which two teams were locked in a tie all game long, There’s a Women’s Month? pulled out ahead of Chekhov’s Gun to take first place by one point. Chanel took home a Geeks Who Drink pint glass for correctly answering the email bonus question and fun was had by all.  Thanks for playing everyone and again, don’t forget about Geek Bowl coming up on February 7th Albuquerque. It is the closest that it will be to Tucson for years so now is your chance to take part in the coolest quiz of the year and possibly win a shit ton of money. So do that! See you guys next week!
