QM'd in Houston for a bit, relocated to Austin, and have been PARTYING LIKE CRAZY here in ATX for almost two years. And by partying, I mean quizmastering. Because I'm way too lame to actually party.


But seriously I'm an awesome Quizmaster.

Hey there, quizzers!

Thanks so much for coming out tonight! The weather was gorgeous and SO WERE YOU, KAVI.

We started the night off with a round about famous alcoholics. The most surprising member of the list was Martha Washington. The least surprising member was...pretty much all the others.

The music round tonight featured all songs that have the word "Gonna" in the title, so obviously we Rick-rolled you at the end. And then we had a Yes or No round about possibly dead people.

And then we had every English major's wet dream: a round on sexy Shakespeare. Sort of. So of course we had to bring everybody back down after that hot and steamy Round 4...by giving you a visual round about every horribly terrifying clown you've ever seen in your nightmares.

Round 6, as we warned you in the email, was about World War I. Bet you weren't expecting Loki to show up in it.

And in Round 7, we asked you to name the Academy Award winner who was slummin' it in a sitcom guest appearance. I saw the most random answer sheet I've ever seen--every answer they didn't know (which was all but 2), they listed MARISA TOMEI, of all people--AND SHE ENDED UP BEING A CORRECT ANSWER. WHAT.

For Random Knowledege tonight, all but one of you were shown up by Last Place, a team of 18-year-olds--they were one of only two teams to get all four points for R8Q8, which asked which four universities pay their men's basketball coaches the most. So everyone but Death by Snu Snu should probably cry themselves to sleep tonight.

The most points tonight went to Momma Just Wanted a Back Rub, but they were DISQUALIFIED for having TOO MANY PEOPLE. So then Precious Minutes Wasted and Lil' Dog, Big Log had to have a tiebreaker for FIRST place, and Lazertits went home with third. It was a very exciting, close game and I can't wait to see what happens next week!

Well, quizzers, tonight I had written a whole nice long blog and I was almost done. And then my computer did a force restart and I lost the whole thing. So here's the truncated version.

14 teams.

Tiebreaker. One Man Wolf Pack won.

OPP.

This/That/These Music.

Working Title Identification.

American painters, which we warned you about in the weekly email.

Fight pictures. Name the winner.

Terry Pratchett, may he RIP.

Movies with characters who are inexplicably playing music even though the plot doesn't necessitate it.

Random Knowledge: Mark Twain, NPR, Halls of Fame states/provinces, Did they or didn't they?, so apprope for Leslie Knope, and a weirdly large amount of Canada.

Congrats, thanks, see you next week!

Hey there, quizzers!

We started tonight with a geography round on places that start with "T". Even those of you who knew what the Tyrrhenian Sea is did not know how to spell it. Luckily for you, this was not simultaneously a spelling round.

You guys rocked the music round tonight! We had one team perfect it tonight and two other teams got 15/16 points--all jokered of course. Unsurprisingly, those three teams (More sinned against than sinning, Just a Little Prik, and Flying Spaghetti Monsters, respectively) took home the gift certificates. The segment of "Endless Love" was not an easily recognizable clip of it for most of you, apparently, and the Foreigner song gave a lot of you trouble too.

We had a speed round in which you had to name the most common English words that have four or more letters AND start with a W. "Where" was surprisingly not on the list, while some of you ran out of guesses and went with "whom," which was unsurprisingly NOT on the list. And even the most racist English-speakers on Earth aren't enough to get "white" on the list.

Round 4 was a round on bald dudes, so of course Vin Diesel, Voldemort He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named, and Andre Agassi came up. In the visual round, meanwhile, you had to name the characters who gave Chuck Norris the pictured array of weapons for his birthday. No, that was not some kind of disc thing thrown by MegaMan; discs like that are obviously from Tron. But I was proud of everyone who recognized Mr. Pointy, Buffy's favorite stake.

Round 6 was the world's oldest round--all about prostitution. How many of you heard "Billie Piper" and already knew the answer was going to be Doctor Who? Also, I'm surprised "sketchy massage parlors" and "Scandinavian" weren't big enough clues for all of you to come up with "Sweden."

In Round 7, I played clips from movie trailers that oh-so-cleverly punned a character's name in the title. Almost none of you recognized Poetic Justice; absolutely none of you recognized Tyler Perry's "Good Deeds." When I read the answers, I literally heard someone say, "That was a movie?" Yes. Yes it was.

In Random Knowledge tonight, we talked about The Lion King, Top Chef, Ghostbusters, and the measles. I refrained from lambasting anti-vaxers again, mostly because I was so excited for R8Q8, in which you had to name the only four female SNL Weekend Update anchors in history. Everyone knew Tina and Amy; you were divided roughly in half on whether the third one you knew was Jane Curtin or Cecily Strong. A few of you even knew all four!

Thanks so much for coming out tonight! I'm glad the weather's clearing up and I hope to see all of you again next week! Don't forget about the Star Trek quiz!
