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. 

Everyone has their favorite things about Christmas, from the spirit of giving to the spirit of getting but for me, being who and what I am, my favorite things about the holidays are the movies. Growing up in a desert a lot my experience with what is classically associated with the season was gathered vicariously through films so even as we come off 80 degree temperatures I can always get into the spirit by watching my favorite Christmas movies. A Christmas Story, Christmas Vacation, the Ref, Muppet Christmas Carol, and Scrooged are my absolute favorites and get me in the mood faster than anything else. Add to that Santa’s Slay and I have the perfect Christmas watchlist. Now I want to go watch Christmas movies.

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was We Won’t See You Next Year and it was a round about people we lost in 2014. This was a tough round right off the bat and only a few teams managed high scores. Pete Seeger, Mike Nichols, and Tony Gwynn were the toughest of the bunch for teams. My favorite answer of the night went to whoever said ‘Thor’ for the Folk songwriter who would have done all kinds of stuff if he had a hammer. Thor does tons of stuff with his hammer but songwriting isn’t really one of them.

The audio round was I’ve Been Everywhere in which all the songs rattled off place names. This was another tough one for a lot of teams. Even the high scores were not so high. Pretty much everyone knew Miami by Will Smith and a surprising amount knew Country Grammar by Nelly. I guess I am out of that particular loop.

Round 3 was And They’re Both Still Working! In which teams had to tell me if the creepy but true storyline from a movie was directed by Woody Allen or Roman Polanski. Scores were a little higher on this one. I am not sure if it was just me but reading these movies was kind of horrifying. I pretty much refuse to watch any Polanski so I would have bombed this round pretty hard.

Round 4 was Recently In Stuff. This round was pretty funny to me given that most of tonight’s team names were spoilers for this round. Predictably the scores were high across board as most teams were checked out on current events. I am trying hard not to start ranting about how pissed off I am about this nonsense with Sony dropping the Interview due to terrorist threats but holy fucking shit. I cannot believe that complete bullshit.

The visual round was an image made up of pieces of famous works of art and teams had to name the individual elements. Teams did pretty well here with some confusion on Manneken Pis  and the Creation of Adam but by and large tonight’s teams knew their pieces of art pieces.

Round 6 was I’m the King of the World and it was about shipwrecks and other shitty maritime experiences. No questions on maritime law though and sadly no questions about Michael Bluth singing ‘You’re a Crook, Captain Hook,’ which is really too bad. I can’t hear the word ‘maritime’ without that scene popping in my head. A lot of teams missed the Cutthroat Island question, which is not surprising given how much that movie bombed. It is too bad too because Matthew Modine as a pirate is really something to see.

Round 7 was The Year in Yuks and teams had to name the 2014 comedies in the clips I played. This was a super strong round that most teams absolutely crushed. The Other Woman is the one that caused what little confusion there was. That makes sense. I have no idea what that movie is at all.

Round 8 was the usual Random Knowledge. This one was a rough one for a lot of teams. The Batman question threw a lot of teams for a loop and I was sort of surprised how many offered the Joker and Robin given they have been in two movies each and the question called for three but whatever, I am a nerd. The last question about defunct nations and what they are now was a problem for a lot of teams with most of them missing India.

Well the questions weren’t very Christmasy but since this was the last quiz before Christmas ( and for the year) at Bumsteds we Christmased it up with an awesome Ugly Christmas Sweater competition. We had great competitors and the top three did such a great job they tied for first. In an unsettlingly regular tie-breaker we went with Rock, Paper, Scissors and Maddy took 1st, Cody took second, and Kyle took third. Leila made a triumphant return to the email bonus winner’s circle snagging herself a Geeks Who Drink jump drive, which is also what she won the last time. Geeks is keeping her well stocked in jump drives. As for the final quiz results, Cuban Cigars are a Thing Again! Maintained its number one spot for the whole quiz but Dr Teeth & the Electric Mayhem jumped to second with only three points behind the winners.

Thanks to everyone who came out tonight and I hope you all have happy holidays whichever holidays those might be. We are not doing quiz next week as it is Christmas day but we will be back on New Year’s day for a triumphant start to the New Year. I can’t think of a better way I would rather deal with the hangover from the night before than quizzing it up at Bumsteds. See you next year!

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. 

So it has been a year that I have been quizmaster at Bumsted’s. That is kind of amazing to me because back before I worked at Geeks my team dominated Bumsted’s for the first eight weeks that Geeks happened there. It was always an important place for me whether it was Caribbean Joe, Julio, or Safari Mari hosting and to be able to do it now myself it awesome. It has always been my favorite venue that we have in town and frankly you guys are my favorite crowd. I so appreciate the card you guys gave me and the optimism you showed with the included condom, particularly given it was of the large variety. Hopefully I can use it before whenever the expiration date is. I really cannot thank you all enough for the fun, support, and enthusiasm. You guys make this worthwhile and I appreciate you cats sticking with me. It has been a great year and I am excited for the next one.

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was I’m Really Enjoying Them Apples, Thanks for Asking and it was all about apples. Lots of tonight’s teams knew their apples although a surprising number of people did not know that the Baconator comes from Wendy’s. That is too bad for your taste buds but probably great for your arteries. I am now ashamed of myself.

The first audio round was Oops I forgot to Write a Solo and it was songs with instruments playing the vocal part. This one was a bit shaky a number of teams did well but no one really did great. Tongue Tied by Grouplove was probably the one that caused the most problems for teams which is kind of fair enough. I saw them at Coachella this year and had no idea who they were until that song came on and I couldn’t have told you the name of it with a gun to my head. I guess everyone was pretty tongue…no sorry I am not doing it.

Round 3 was …But It’s All in the Game and it was a 50/50 round about games of all types. Again no one killed it here but a lot of them were pretty good. It looks like not too many of you play Settlers of Catan or at least if you do you don’t gather resources from the Hills because almost no one knew it was brick. Most teams knew that turning a Magic card was tapping. I want to make a joke about magic cards being the only thing they are tapping but I feel like I am better than that. Oh shit.

Round 4 was Ishmael Called My Goat  and it was a round in which I gave the publication year and a famous opening line but the famous opening line was put into a language translator 10 times. Teams pretty much crushed here which is impressive as hell because these things were ridiculous to read let alone interpret. Green Eggs and Ham was my favorite just because it was so weird-ass.

The visual round was Ashes to Ashes and teams had to name the movie that the funeral scenes were from. Most teams killed here if you will pardon the pun because apparently I can’t help using hacky shit tonight. A couple of teams stumbled with Serenity thinking that it was Firefly. That is a tough one but it was movies. Steel Magnolias caused a couple of problems too and if they are upset about it they should realize that they can hit Weeza.

Round 6 was the Force Awakens and it was all questions inspired by the Star Wars teaser trailer. This one was pretty rough on teams and if there was a missed question that made me the saddest it was the question about John Boyega and his 2011 alien-invasion horror-comedy with Nick Frost. Seriously guys, you should check out Attack the Block. It is badass.

Round 7 was an audio round in which teams had to name the TV show by the theme music. This was another pretty good round for teams but some struggled. Most missed was probably Constantine although a number of teams pulled that one out. Sons of Anarchy made me sad as I just watched the series finale today before quiz. I am going to miss that show a lot. I was happy to see so many teams knew the Vikings theme song. Fever Ray is awesome.

Round 8 was Random Knowledge as usual. Fortunes were changed here but it wasn’t a very strong round for anyone. No one managed Gloria for the Catholic liturgy and Van Morrison song. The OPEC nations caused some problems as well.  Most teams managed the Sea of Tranquility and Curious George.

At the end of it all Yay Christmas/Hanukkah took first place but the real action happened in second place where we had a tie that resulted in an epic dance off, hotly contested results, and a final winner coming down to four rounds of Rock, Paper, Scissors. I have my own opinions about how that dance off should have gone but I don’t choose winners. Both teams put up a great fight but when the rocks, papers, and scissors were shot Schrodinger’s Pussy edged out Chekhov’s Gun for the number two spot. Katie repeated with another email bonus win.

Thank you all again for the anniversary card. I am touched and I am very happy to be the quizmaster for Bumsteds. I love you guys and you make it a lot of fun. Don’t forget that next week is our Ugly Christmas Sweater competition. There will be prizes and fun to be had by all. See you next week!

Well the holiday season is upon us as we roll out of Thanksgiving and Black Friday into the great monument to commerce that is the season. I was kind of disappointed in the Black Friday deals that I saw but admittedly I didn’t really do much shopping. I was more interested in Record Store Day and getting Faith No More’s first single in 17 years. Might be the best purchase of the year for me. Anyway, it is only a few weeks until Christmas and while I am Grinching pretty hard this year I can’t help but feel a little excited. Also exciting: Next week is my one year anniversary hosting at Bumsted’s. So I have that going for me.

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was Elements of Quiz in which all the answers had the name of a chemical element in them. This first round was pretty strong for most teams. Palladium and Rin Tin Tin cause some issues for teams but I really need to address the fact that Nickleback has been nominated for six fucking Grammys? What the hell is that? I am happy that they didn’t win but they really shouldn’t even be in the conversation.

The first audio round was Losing My Religion and it was secular songs by artists who had a #1 Billboard Christian album. A lot of teams killed this round which is sort of disturbing but then one of the teams sang along to pretty much all of the songs. With enthusiasm. I wanted to shoot myself during this round, particularly when Evanescence was playing. Dear god.

Round 3 was a 50/50 round on Spiders, Men, and That Super Hero. This was a tough one for a lot of teams. These are always pretty tricky and this one caused some problems. There were no super consistent incorrect answers as they were all over but I will say I can’t imagine how much it would suck if the most venomous spider was called a Mango Spider. Banana is not much better but mango just sounds a lot sillier. I want to point out that I took the high ground and did not say fruity and I think I should get credit for that.

Round 4 was Welcome to the Borderlands and the questions had to do with borders and lands. Most teams did pretty well although a lot of teams mistook the Vault for the Rings. Apparently not a lot of teams were familiar with Robert Jordan or the Wheel of Time series.  I have never read the series but it was always kind of a big deal. Not sure that is so true anymore judging by these answers.

The Visual Round was What Have You Done with YOUR Life and featured pictures of genius kids from TV. There were some really strong scores here although the most missed was probably Master Billy Quizboy from the Venture Bros. This makes me very sad.

Round 6 was Bossing It and was a round about manly generals and female executives. This was a generally strong round for most teams aside from one team that answered with ‘I hate this round.’ A lot of teams had a hard time with the assassinated president and the Civil War who refused to run for president.

Round 7 was one of my favorite Round 7s we have ever had as it was The Feel-Meh Movie of the Year and teams had to name movies being synopsized by Honest Trailers guys on Youtube. If you have never checked them out, you totally should. They are part of the Screen Junkies Youtube challenge and they are amazing. Of the clips featured here, the X-Men Days of Future Past stymied the most teams who generally thought it was Terminator 3. I was kind of surprised by how just about everyone got the Fault in Our Stars but they did. The clips for Saw and Fight Club were my favorites of the bunch, but seriously, check them out on Screen Junkies.

Round 8 was Random Knowledge as usual and this one was a bit rough. Some teams did alright but no one really killed it. The instruments of Jazz greats was a rough question for pretty much everybody. Only a couple of teams managed the question about Roman emperors and most teams were thrown by James Gunn writing the Scooby Doo script. I actually really dig Gunn’s Scooby Doo script. I guess I am just a James Gunn fan since Slither and Super were also badass and his Dawn of the Dead script was on point.

The top three spots switched up over the course of the quiz and the scores were close the whole time in the top five spots. Still, with a jokered perfect round 2 for Real Housewives of Armory Park were really hard to beat. Even with an impressive showing, they still only beat the second place, December Rain, by two points. It was a tough scrabble all game long and make for a pretty exciting game. Katie scored a Geeks Who Drink pint glass for the email bonus question.

It was a great night of quiz and awesome to be back after a two week break! Don’t forget that on the 18th we are doing an ugly Christmas sweater competition with some prizes for the best so plan on that! Thanks for coming and I’ll see you all next week!
