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!

I think tonight is just going to be a recap. I just don’t really have much else to say that would justify a paragraph of anything else. So rather than waste the time writing nonsense here for several sentences, I am just going to get to the recap. Because also I am pretty tired. I haven’t been sleeping great lately so the quicker I can get through this bit and on with the business of going to sleep and dreaming of a life that doesn’t include my soul crushing day job and relies much more heavily on intergalactic adventures with Rocket Raccoon, the better. Seriously, skipping this part is going to get me in a dreamland of space and sarcastic anthropomorphic woodland creatures that much faster so, while it may disappoint the maybe one person who actually reads this, I am going to have to do something for me and skip writing anything in this space and just get to the recap. I don’t really think it is selfish either and I sort of resent the implication that I am not interested in providing entertaining content in service of the possibility that dreams will include cosmic adventures. So with that in mind, I am just going to skip writing an intro and go right into the recap.

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was What Are We Making? And I gave teams the steps and ingredients and they had to tell me the dish the recipe was for. Out of the gates most teams dominated this round. Meringue and Souffle were stumbling points for a few teams but by and large teams had this on lock down.

Round 2’s audio round was Because You Refuse to Share the Mic and it was a collection of songs by original bands and spin off bands. With one very notable exception, this was a tough round for a lot of teams. Even iconic songs like All Apologies by Nirvana gave some teams trouble and most teams really struggled. A misspelling in iTunes on one of the song titles made me think I have been crazy all these years for mishearing a title but typos are gonna typo.

Round 3 was Wrestlemania 7 Was an Inside Job and it was a pretty amazing round in which teams had to identify statements made by conspiracy theorist Alex Jones or Macho Man Randy Savage. Both guys have said some batshit crazy things and it was fun to read them and fun to see what teams thought. I also tried out my first ever Macho Man impression because how are you going to do his trademark ‘Oh Yeeaaaah’ without throwing a bit of English on it?

Round 4 was a round about Yo-Yo Ma and we all learned some interesting things not only about Yo-Yo Ma, but also a bit about ourselves. Like for instance that a lot of teams don’t know shit about Yo-Yo Ma.  I have to say I feel like Yo-Yo Ma did Steve Jobs dirty by refusing to play the man’s wedding but then played his memorial. How fucked up is that? Play with the guy can hear you, not when he is dead.

The visual round had teams identifying characters from their messed up smiles. Teams did pretty well here but I was surprised to see that some teams had an issue identifying Sloth from Goonies. Some teams said ‘that guy from the Goonies’ but frankly that is even worse because they  should have known better.

Round 6 was less popular than Round 4 by asking a bunch of questions about Wikipedia. There is a certain irony in not knowing information about a website dedicated to information. I was particularly fond of the Jason Verlander  question less because of any love for Verlander and more because naming him owner of the A’s because of how much he dominated their batters is just kind of badass.

Round 7 was an audio round asking teams to name the TV show or movie that has an actor in it that will also be in Star Wars Episode VII. Teams were pretty middle of the road here and there were no standouts in terms of most correct or most missed.  24 was one of the answers for John Boyega and I kind of wish they had gone with a clip for Attack the Block for him because now all I can think about is Jack Bauer arm wrestling Boba Fett into submission.

As always Round 8 was random knowledge and it ushered in the change of fortune for several teams, one of which propelling itself into second place. Hamlet’s Mom and dickhead uncle gave teams some problems. No one came up with Stephen Colbert for the People’s Choice winner for best late night host which is sort of weird. The Colbert Report and the Daily Show have long dominated awards shows so it seems like a nobrainer. Of course, given that no one got it, I am just a presumptive idiot.

At the end of the night a Veiled Reference to Dog Breasts held on to their sizable lead to take first and in the process make me feel kind of weird about their name for reasons I don’t really understand. Chekhov’s Gun came from behind to seize second place while team member Adam took the email bonus prize of Savory Bacon Sticks. I don’t know what the fuck those are but it has bacon in it so I am going to assume they are awesome.

Thanks for coming to quiz and I hope to see everyone next week for more awesome quizzery goodness!

So look, I don’t want to write a long and dramatic post about the loss of Robin Williams but I feel like I would be remise if I did not mention the enormous joy the man brought to the world and how much of a staple he has been for me since I was a little kid. I know this is a pretty common feeling amongst people so I won’t belabor the point too much. I was very happy to see that all the teams were respectful and did not make jokes about Williams’s death in their team names and this is one of the many reasons why my teams at Bumsted’s are my favorites. You guys rock.

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was Duh! and featured question with kind of obvious answers. Given my ridiculous love for Guardians of the Galaxy I was very excited to see a question about Cosmo the space dog and his Soviet origins. I hope to see more of Cosmo in the next Guardians movie and hopefully he will talk. Most teams knew where Cosmo was from which is cool but a few didn’t which is not so cool.

Round 2 was Jimmy Fallon Presents : Radio WTF and teams had to give me the song title and hit artist of the songs Fallon is spoofing on. Teams generally did well here but almost no one got the band that performed the Lion Sleeps Tonight. One team guessed Timon and Pumba. Sadly, it was Token. Most teams also got the Wickedly talented Adeel Dazeem…er…Idina Menzel.

Round 3 was all about Wall Street Slang and teams did fairly well with some high and some low. Fuck You Money was a personal favorite and pretty much everyone knew it meant enough money to quit your job. I feel like they almost have to have a term for the amount of money to fuck you as well and I would like to know what that is.

Round 4 was a bit painful with Robins, Williams, and Some Really Bad News. I could have done without the question about Williams’s role as a suicidal DJ and given that most teams got it wrong I am betting you all could have done without it too. Also, there is no bird called Herpes. Just saying.

The visual round was a home run for most teams but they mostly missed the grand slam because few recognized Robbie ‘Hagrid’ Coltrane. But hey, you guys know your dudes in drag so aces on that.

Next up was Round 6 which was Can’t See TV about cancelled TV shows. I am kind of proud of the quiz for not going for a Firefly question given that it is easily the most complained about cancelled show this side of Freaks and Geeks.  Teams did pretty well here which is kind of a bummer because I really wanted to make a joke about ‘no wonder these shows didn’t last because no one knew them’ but you guys pretty much did. So fuck you guys is really what I am getting at.

The second audio round was Tales From the Hood in which teams had to identify the classic literary work based on the review from Sparky Sweets. Lots of teams dominated here with a few confusion about the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and 1984 but in general teams did great here. I particularly dug Sparky’s description of the Hobbit. I need to check this out further.

Round 8 was Random Knowledge as usual and it changed the fortunes of some teams who jokered here and sealed the fates of some teams who had already used it. Still the scores here weren’t super high. Eye patches gave teams trouble in particular as did telephone hellos. Most teams knew the OWLs and that is pretty magical. I am sorry.

When it was all said and done Strippers, Redheads, and People Named Tiffany held on to the lead they took right from the jump to win 1st place with Tony Stewart is a Tucson Driver came screaming from behind to mow down the competition to take second place. Shana won some spiffy candle holders in the email bonus question.

Thanks to everyone who came out and have a great week! I hope to see you back next week for Geeks Who Drink pub quiz!
