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, 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!

Hey there, quizzers!

I am very excited to be your new host at Billy's! Now obviously I am no Becca or Shayne, but hopefully we can still be friends. I mean, if you'll have me.

Even if you won't have me, you're stuck with me, so there's that.

Of course, despite all the threats and reminders, even though I had Danger Zone QUEUED UP for the start of the quiz...I forgot to actually play it. Thank you for being so nice about it when I finally remembered before Round 3.

I swear that won't happen again.

Even though there was that one obnoxiously loud table, I feel like my first night at Billy's went pretty well, don't you? I'm going to have to work some on making the sound system my bitch, but overall I feel like we all had a good time. I know that my not-so-inner science teacher was thrilled by R1, in which you had to know your element symbols to spell out the answers to the clues. And I know that R3, a round about "why school blows," was actually a lot of stuff that I agreed with as an educator in a fucked up system. So I at least had a good time.

But enough about me. I don't want to tell you so much about me on our first date that you get too bored with me for a second one.

Why don't you tell me about you, hm?

You actually did tell me quite a bit about yourself tonight. In R4, I learned that the most terrifying sea creature one team could think of was a cod, which either means that y'all need to sort out your priorities, or you maybe just have a four-year-old's level of knowledge of what kind of horrors haunt the deep. In R6, I learrned that some of you hear the word "clench" and think about dat ass. In R7, I learned that some of you think the White House's anti-sexual-assault initiative is called "Stop raping those bitches," and that others of you think rape jokes are funny and answered "Yes means yes."

So I feel like I know enough about you to want a second date, at least. If for no other reason than dat ass. But the rapey team can stay home.

Don't forget about the cash-prized Ghostbusters-themed quiz coming up soon! And I will see you next week, for our second date!
