Marissa (Safari Mari)

I was born & raised in San Diego, California, I left for a few years to attend and graduate from the University of Arizona. Bear down! I spend my days teaching Tucson's youth--the future of America (get out while you can--seriously.) In my spare time, I enjoy geeking out at quiz or hanging with friends!

I love animals, science, books....and quizzing! There's more to know...but really, who cares?

Keep Calm & Geek On!

Also known as “Safari Mari and the Extraordinarily Shitty Day”

Despite having a awesome night subbing & hosting quiz at Bumsteads, I have come to the conclusion that I am under some sort of quizmaster curse. Patsquatch was off for the night--I think he was up in some backwoods area of Canada with some people named Matt Moneymaker and “Bobo.” So, of course, I jumped at the chance to fill in and see all my beloved quizzers. I missed you assholes. I even left my nutrition class early to come to quiz. However, I think that’s when the curse started *cues dramatic music & dramatic chipmunk*

As I got to quiz, I received a text from my lab partner who was still in class, to tell me that apparently there was a numbering error in the test we had taken that week and we needed to look over our answer sheets to see what we had answered. Since I wasn’t in class, I couldn’t exactly know what was going on, but essentially my professor mis-numbered the questions and there were actually 51 questions, but most people only answered 50. Instead of just awarding everyone one point (which, as a teacher, I would’ve done) because I wasn’t there to look over my answer sheet, I missed that point. Fuck.

Right before quiz, my iTunes shit itself and I lost the new playlist and the audio rounds for the night, so I had to scramble to get them set up again before starting quiz. Balls! As always, I did my best and I had a great time hosting and heckling my friends and favorite quizzers. I also enjoyed discussing my least favorite quizzers, especially at the end of the evening.

Back to my curse. So, I get into my car after quiz and my warning gas light came on, just as I hit Speedway. Balls. I thought I had had enough gas to get me through the night and I could get it in the morning. See, I’ve been on this very special diet named “I have $2 until Friday.” It’s super effective. So I didn’t have money for gas--I was sweating. But I figured my car averages about 17 MPG so I have only 8 miles to home and then 2 miles to the gas station in the morning.

I get home, unlock the front door and the doorknob falls off. What. The. Serious. Fuck. I fiddled with it for a while, said “fuck that” and locked the deadbolt, vowing to fix it this weekend. I passed out at 11:30pm since I had had an eighteen hour day. I figured I’d wake up a little earlier than usual to write this blog. But when my eyes opened, there was a problem--there was sunlight streaming through my window. I grabbed my phone and looked at the time. It was 6:15am! My alarm was supposed to have gone off at 5am! SHITBALLSFUCKCOCK. [Note: I actually said that]. I took a 5 minute shower, threw some clothes on and raced out of the house--then remembered my gas situation. I had gotten paid, so I just needed to get to the gas station, right? Wrong. My car decided that it had had enough and ran out of gas about a block and a half away from the goram gas station. I could fucking SEE it. So, I had to push my SUV to the gas station feeling like goddamn She-Hulk.

Does my shitty cruse-period stop there? Nope. I couldn’t just pay at the pump like a normal gas station. I had to wait inside for the slowest attendant EVER to pre-pay for my gas. Then pump it (like the BEP) and by this time, I’m already fucking late for a meeting and it’s well past 7:15am so I speed across town. I stop for breakfast, thinking “shit I’m already late, might as well eat” and so I go through the Dunkin of the Donuts. The drive thru is a long wait, so I opt to go inside. Of course one of the registers is down and there’s a gigantic line. Double fuck. I get my food at 7:45am and speed to work just down the street. I get into my classroom 5 minutes before the bell is to ring for first period, open my breakfast bag to scarf down food…and my order is completely wrong. I gave up.

Sigh. Please send pity beers and chocolate to Safari Mari asap.

Congrats to all of our winners last night. Eric answered the email bonus correctly and snagged a sweet sushi coaster set. Chekov’s Gun & Cheers to Mari (& Inappropriate Things) battled for top spots. In the end, Chekov’s Gun succumbed to 2nd place and Cheers to Mari were victorious in 1st place!

It was wonderful to see all of your quizzing regulars, the newbs and the drunkards. Patsquatch will return next week--he promised gifts for all. See you soon!

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. 

Tonight was the night when teams assembled to face each other on the field of Marvel Cinematic Universe battle. On the eve of Captain America: the Winter Soldier’s release, teams squared off for a $153 cash prize as well as an assorted bunch of other prizes for second and third place as well as costume contest prizes. The competition was intense and the questions came hard but a lot of teams came even harder with a number of respectably high scores.

Here are some highlights:

  • The costume contest was pretty badass with four contestants stepping up with a conflicted Bane, a sexy Punisher, a Bruce Banner that didn’t seem too angry all the time, and my favorite Spider-man villain Venom. With three prizes up for grabs, Bane took top honors after a spot on impassioned speech to the crowd that true to form was harder to understand that our audio round and won a sweet ass Captain America shield custom made by our very one Caribbean Joe, the lady Punisher took second place and won a 12” Captain America action figure, and Venom took third to win an Iron Man paper doll set. Sadly Bruce Banner went back to his team empty handed. Thankfully for all of us, he did not become angry. We wouldn’t like him when he is angry.
  • Round 2 wasn’t so much a highlight as it was a round that people had a hard time understanding. The sirified lines of dialogue threw a lot of teams off but even as tough a time some players had, several straight up dominated here with a jokered round that put them at the top and kept them there the whole game. It was not easy but those teams proved that it was very doable.
  • Round 5’s visual round was pretty badass with Deadpool re-enacting some death and near death scenes. The original artwork was awesome and it is nice to see Deadpool even if he is not in the MCU.
  • Rounds 6 and 7 tore a lot of teams entirely new assholes for the new assholes that had just been torn. This was kind of surprising as I would have thought that Hulk, warrior, battle, Thanos, and Infinity Gems would be right up the alley of the hardcore competitors. A few teams managed to shine here but by and large both these rounds smashed teams worse than the Hulk could dream of and that is a shitload of smashing guys.
  • Round 8 offered up some redemption but I was sort of appalled by how many teams missed the question about Jack ‘King’ Kirby. The man is a legend known almost as much for getting fucked out of recognition as he is for the massive influence he had on comics. Still, a lot of teams stepped up here and some even came flying up the ladder.
  • Finally, some of the answers thrown out when teams didn’t know the answers were hilarious. That is the magic of quiz. If you can’t be right you can at least be funny.

 

As always themed quizzes bring out some awesome team names. Here are my favorites:

  • I’d Pepper Her Potts
  • Sam Jackson’s One Eyed Fury
  • She’s Gonna Be Thor in the Morning
  • Stark Spangled Banners
  • Justice League

So when it was all said and done and the dust cleared, three teams went off to have some Shawarma. With a whopping 86 points, Stark Spangled Banners took home the cold hard cash in first place. Just six points behind first, the Justice League took second and scored a gift bag full of Avengers themed nonsense that included a sweet, sweet Frisbee and some other neat stuff. With 73 points, Your Best Guy’s Gun took third and scored their own gift bag slightly less full of Avengers themed nonsense that did not include a sweet, sweet Frisbee but was still better than not winning anything at all.

Thank you guys so much for coming out and taking part in the Avengers theme quiz. You were all awesome and the night was fun, exciting and…fun. Join us next week for our regularly scheduled quiz at Bumsted’s and special thanks to Caribbean Joe for not only scorekeeping for us tonight but also for making  both the shield that went to Bane but also the one he gave me for my Captain America costume. He rocks. Thanks again guys! Excelsior!

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. 

We had a pretty intimate quiz tonight presumably do to the U of A playing in the Sweet Sixteen. That is cool though because we all had fun with our Elite Eight that was going on at quiz. Okay, there were technically nine teams but that doesn’t work with the rhyme scheme or the name of a March Madness round…the round the Wildcats are headed to after a nail biter of a game. Thankfully, even with the game going on we still had some pretty tight competition of our own on our hands.

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was We Can Irk It Out in which all of the answers rhymed with Irk. About half the teams destroyed this round and the other half found it pretty irksome. You see what I did there? Yeah I know, sorry.  Some teams weren’t familiar with berserk and quirk threw some teams for a loop but by and large teams did pretty well at wading through the murk.

Round 2’s Audio Round was Brought to You By the Number Five in which the titles or artists had to do with the number five. This round was no one’s friend as there were no jokers and no scores above an 8. A lot of teams knew It’s Five o’clock Somewhere but few teams knew it was Alan Jackson . It was better than the Fifth Dimension which no one knew.

Round 3 was It’s a Chicken –or-Egg Thing in which teams had to tell me which came first. Scores were pretty scattered on answers here. From MDMA to the Walkman, answers were scattered but a fair number of teams destroyed this round. The Bonus question? Not so much given that it took three hints to get the right answer.

Round 4 was Cinema du Elsewhere which was a round on foreign films. Lots of teams were checked out on Pan’s Labyrinth which makes sense since most of them got it on Round 5 as well. Lots of love for Del Torro this week. Some teams had some trouble with Fellini and one team thought it might be the Pope. Obviously that is not correct but the new Pope seems badass enough to make acclaimed Italian films.

The Visual Round was Here’s Lookin’ at You and teams had to name the movie the featured eyes are from. A bunch of teams thought that Superman Returns was the Matrix which is a little sad since that is the one really cool scene from Superman Returns. Village of the Damned stumped some teams who thought it was Children of the Corn. Fair enough since they are both about creepy killer children.  Everyone got Twilight and one team knew which Twilight it was, which made me very sad.

Round 6 was Supermarket Sweeps and it was a round about food stores and brooms. Absolutely no teams knew what in the hell besom was. Apparently not a strong wiccan contingent at Bumsteds. Only one team got Aldi when asked the name of the supermarket founded by the Albrecht family.  Most teams went with Albertsons but, you know, it wasn’t.

Round 7 was a kind of strange round in which I played clips and then asked questions about those clips and all the answers rhymed. This round was delayed while we watched the Wildcats finish off San Diego. Playing clips would have been impossible with the cheering and various carrying on. After the game, half the teams bailed and we were left with an even more intimate crowd that were all pretty close in scores and were scrapping for the top. Also, this round treated most teams like they owed it money.

Round 8 was Random Knowledge as usual and it was the deciding factor in a really close game.  A question about Volcanos screwed a lot of teams and only one team knew that Jim Varney voiced Slinky Dog from Toy Story. The final question about Pro Baseball or Punk band singers ruined a lot of dreams and most of the names sounded like STDs.

At the end of the night one team stood victorious thanks to a near perfect round 8 that pushed Bill, Hillary & Monica to first place stain on the dress be damned. Not too far behind was The Dire Quiz Team: We’re Like a Quiz Team…but Dire. Chrissy took home Steampunk Sleep Shades for correctly answering the email bonus question and Kyle snagged a free beer for the Facebook question. If you aren’t following Geeks Who Drink at Bumsteds on Facebook you are missing out on opportunities for free beer the day of quiz so get on that shit.

Thanks to all the teams that came out tonight and don’t forget that next week’s quiz is the Avengers theme quiz covering the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There is a cash prize and a prize for best costume so assemble a team and if you can’t save the quiz you can be damn sure to avenge it. Toodles!
