QM'd in Houston for a bit, relocated to Austin, and am now READY TO PARTY in ATX. And by party, I mean quiz. Because I'm way too lame to actually party.


But seriously I'm an awesome Quizmaster.

Hey there, quizzers!

Tonight we had a great set of rounds and a greater set of players. And the greatest thing was, of course, the ADORABLE SLEEPING PUPPY that was so small it was sleeping ON THE TABLE on the patio and I didn't take a picture up close because I didn't want the flash of my camera to wake it up but OH MY GOODNESS IT WAS SO CUTE.

I mean, we also had a quiz. But seriously, dat puppy.

After a round on four-letter f words and a music round full of Dave Matthews Band covers (I know that sounds like a joke, but it isn't), we had a really difficult Sooner or Later round where you had to name an actor based on his or her roles. It was so difficult that even in a venue as competitive as Billy's, only one team chose the "sooner" option (and it was not a good choice). In fact, if The Star Wars Rebels Send Their Regards had waited to turn theirs in, they probably could have gotten at least one more point on it and wouldn't have tied for third, and then lost the tie. Tough break.

We had a Recently in Stuff round and a visual round in which historical figures' faces were covered by the reddit rage face. We also had a round on fans, gates, and lame political scandals. Even better, we had an audio round on songs, movies, and TV shows that mention D&D. But my favorite non-puppy part of the night was the Random Knowledge question about the original Baby-Sitters Club members. I had that shit on lock down.

Props to Social Singularity for first place, Kool and the Gang for rsecond place, and Internet Famous for winning the arm wrestling tie breaker for third! See you Saturday at the Ghostbusters quiz and see you next week, right here at Billy's!

Hey there, quizzers!

Tonight, I remembered to play Danger Zone without someone even mentioning it to me. Major breakthrough! After a round on BS (literally), we had a music round with a bunch of historically overplayed songs (Jack and Diane chief among them). The Top or Bottom round was not quite as tawdry as we had all hoped, although Sir Topham Hat and the chimpanzee from Ed could give us a fairly raunchy time, I bet.

After the score break, we had a round on Giants and Cardinals that had almost nothing to do with baseball. A Twin Peaks question and a question involving number theory made the entire thing more doable. I mean, for some of you.

The visual round went very well for many of you; you apparently are very familiar with Halloween episodes of TV shows, although there was no mention of the Treehouse of Horror. Which is ironic, since the next one was about the Simpsons. No, not those Simpsons; just pretty much every other one.

We rounded off the night with an audio round on literature, courtesy of Thug Notes, and a Random Knowledge round in which some of you learned for the first time that Crosby, Stills, and Nash are three different guys.

Thanks for such a great time tonight! Make sure to study up for the Ghostbusters-themed, cash-prized quiz!

Hey there, quizzers!

Tonight we had a whopping 17 teams, which is awesome. Except that I was all by myself, so I spent a lot of the quiz inwardly going "AHHHHHHHHHHH" while trying not to take too long on everything. Our timing worked out just fine--we got through it together. Go team!

The obvious highlight of the night came really early. Which is not to say that we peaked early and the rest of the quiz was not as good, but just that what happened early on was SO AWESOME. Our very first question was about Larry Bird. You had to name the team for whome he spent his whole career playing #33. As I was reading the question, I became aware of an odd amount of tittering in the room. I looked around and saw that there was a man standing in line at the bar...wearing a Larry Bird jersey. Which prominently displayed his #33. And the name of the Boston Celtics. By the time I finished repeating the question, pretty much everyone inside had noticed and a spontaneous cheer erupted for our heroic Larry Bird fan. I never figured out where he was sitting, so hopefully the patio got some help from him too. Anyway, it was pretty awesome. That's never happened to me before in all my time quizmastering.

We also had a delightful round comparing the awfulness of Ann Coulter, Michelle Bachman, and Sarah Palin. I do kind of agree with that one dude that "Railin' Palin" would be a better name than "Nailin' Palin" for the porn parody series. That was followed by a round that had kind of a red herring title--the round was endorsed by Marie Antoinette...because it was about cake.

I don't know how I should feel about the couple of groups who knew that the My Little Pony character is named Pinkie Pie--should I be proud or concerned?--but I do know how I feel about the one single who knew about the soccer player whose FACE was sewn to a SOCCER BALL by a MEXICAN DRUG CARTEL. I'm staying on your good side.

And on that note! Don't forget about the Ghostbusters-themed cash-prized quiz! And I will see you next week!
