Alex Hofford (Hoffstradamus)

Hola! My name is Alex and I am the Quizmaster at the fine establishments of Natty Greene's and East Village in Raleigh. I also perform comedy in the Triangle at DSI Comedy and with the improv group BONE CRACKER.

For over a decade, we’ve seen scores of movies and TV shows inspired by comic books, and the raging tide of material won’t subside anytime soon. Some are fantastic (Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain America: The Winter Soldier), some are alright (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Thor), and some are flat-out dogshit (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Heroes after season 2).

So it pains me to check out the latest foray into source material bastardization - Gotham, a TV crime serial featuring younger versions of all the characters you know and love from the Batman series. This makes perfect sense because when I watch anything with Batman in it, you know what I’m really thinking? “Man, this is really action-packed and interesting, but it’d be a lot better if they were 20 years younger.”

Ben McKenzie (O.C., Southland) stars as a young James Gordon, a by-the-books detective who will stop at nothing to nab his culprit. His grizzled, alcoholic partner Harvey Bullock - played by Donal Logue (Terriers, Blade) - is clearly a pawn in the Gotham’s crime underworld, but is called on by his duty to the force to do the right thing and solve their latest high-profile case: the murder of Thomas and Martha Wayne.

Sounds like a pretty decent premise, right? Well, it’s at that point the show gets markedly worse. 

The first egregious mistake they made is the Waynes were murdered in front of Bruce as they were walking out of a movie, and not the opera like we’re used to seeing. Because, as super wealthy people are wont to do, they are dressed in their finest clothes - suits, fur, and pearls - to go to the movies, and they are robbed of their valuables on their way out.

Look, Waynes, you went to the shittiest part of town dressed to the nines to see a movie - which couldn’t be ANYTHING but a $1.50 theater because you’re in the middle of an urban dumpster fire - and you were shocked to get robbed? Even Warren Buffett wears a South Park t-shirt with BBQ stains on it and sweatpants to the movies because it’s not worth the attention. Sadly, you both learned your lesson too late.

From there the show lost me. Then came in the eye-rollingly obvious references to villains’ future selves. Oswald Cobblepot is called “Penguin” as he’s mercilessly beating up someone who looks EXACTLY like Katt Williams (seriously, check it out at the 15:00 minute mark), and our intrepid detectives visit a suspect’s home where his daughter, Ivy, answers the door. GET IT, BECAUSE THEY ARE GOING TO BE THE PENGUIN AND POISON IVY LATER ON. What deft use of subtle foreshadowing.

Who am I kidding though? I’m probably going to keep watching the show. At the very least, it’s not as bad as Batman & Robin, and that’s something we can all sleep better knowing.

—————————

First and second places were separated by only ONE POINT, and Zealand won the uncontested first place honors. However, there was a three-way tie for second place, and what better way to settle the score than a good old-fashioned dance battle? Burning the Competition Like the Chicago Center! and Charlotte’s 17th Mayor This Month brought some sweet moves to the dance floor, but none were sweeter than those from the serpentine dancing wonder hailing from Pocket Full of Pepto who sealed up the silver medal spot for his team. Well done, everyone.

—————————

Interesting Notes from the Quiz!:

- When most people heard “Unmarried and childless” American artist, they (incorrectly) guessed Georgia O’Keefe.

- It could be argued that Ryan Dunn shoved a car up his ass twice.

- Yet another team learned the consequences of choosing a verboten team name. Check your pull-out couches and ramrods at the door.

- Kind of ironic the question asking about anti-vomiting medicine came before the one with KFC, McDonald’s, and Pizza Hut as answers.

Alex Hofford (Hoffstradamus)

Hola! My name is Alex and I am the Quizmaster at the fine establishments of Natty Greene's and East Village in Raleigh. I also perform comedy in the Triangle at DSI Comedy and with the improv group BONE CRACKER.

Poetry comes in all shapes, sizes, and proses, and our Round Six tonight featured some limericks inspired by succinct movie plots. However, the glaring spot in all of it was that there wasn’t a limerick for the greatest movie of all-time, Tommy Boy. So, I’m going to write it. About the whole movie. It’s what Farley would have wanted.

Tommy Boy-O

There once was a boy named Tommy
Dumb as a rock and without a mommy
Spent seven years in school
Where all thought he was cool
Then meets an old friend who’s quite scrawny 

His dad owns an auto parts plant
And Tommy’s knowledge of business is scant
Big Tom is loved and the best
But falls dead clutching his chest
Tommy is now CEO, but knows that he can’t

The bank will shutter the factory
Unless Tommy travels to sell accessories
He pulls in friend David
Who felt totally baited
But it’s the only way it goes successfully

Simply put, Tommy can’t sell
Lit a car on fire, sent a family to Hell
Continues to blow sale after sale
Needs to land the “white whale”
Or Zalinsky closes up shop, oh well 

He gets better and better as he goes
David’s mentoring of him clearly shows
But then orders get nixed
Tommy’s royally pissed
They must visit Zalinsky in Chicago 

They rush to the Windy City, post haste
But there’s an adversary he’s never faced
In the board room is his new mother
And his brand new step-brother
Getting back in needs road flares at the waist 

They have police reports that spill all the beans
Turns out his new family’s been swapping genes
The deal is recalled
Rob Lowe gets hit in the balls
Tommy saves the day, know what that means? 

Back in Sandusky, he is a champ
After all, he began as a scamp
He fought for his workers
And still quite the smirker
Film never fails to make my eyes damp

———————————

In one of our “intimate quiz” nights, Dark Dog & Underhorse proved their team name wrong by claiming the first place spot tonight. They triumphed over Act Like You’ve Been There, Tulloch! by four points, who finished in second (though, in my opinion, they should have finished lower for blaspheming my beloved Lions). Well done, everyone.

———————————

Interesting Notes from the Quiz!:

- Speaking of the limerick round, it seemed like everyone was down for a nice little poem about each of those movies.

- She got a light-skinned friend look like Michael Jackson/Got a dark-skinned friend look like Michael Jackson.

- Starship Troopers is one of the greatest movies ever made.

- Anyone who eats a Quesarito is asking to die of Oregon Trail-type diseases.

- Strong Independent Black Mage

- Freedom Hit ISIS In the Pussy

- Turn Down for Whom?

Travis (Sweet T)

There are some who call me... Travis.

I host the Geeks Who Drink quiz at TerraFin Station in Raleigh, NC every Monday night at 7! I also scorekeep for mah boy Alex at Natty Greene's (also in Raleigh) every Tuesday night at 7:30! When I'm not doing one of those things, or working at my crap day job, I'm usually drunk, at home, playing Mass Effect or reading comics. "Geeks Who Drink" ain't just a job y'all, it's a way of life.

It's all about the love at Natty Greene's, you guys. Tonight was pretty incredible, with 19 teams all here to see little ol' me read some questions and maybe win a gift card (or in one dude's case, a soap dish). I've been scoring everyone's quizzes as Alex's sidekick for the better part of a year now, and it was pretty great how everybody was so supportive and patient (seeing as how a one-man quiz can move a bit slower than a two-man operation). Special props goes to Chuck for getting injured in the line of bringing me a drink! Dude, I will never leave the pencils out points-up again. It's amazing an accident hadn't happened before now.

Like I said, 19 teams were out tonight, and the competition. Was. Bananas. Freakin' everybody was tied with everybody for half the night! Fortunately, at the end of the night, Lasagna For One pulled out a two-point lead over Your Masters, so there was no need for a sudden-death round or a dance-off to drag things out even longer. Alex will be back next week, and will hopefully forgive me for making the lame joke that he was just at home watching porn because I couldn't think of anything funnier on the spur of the moment when somebody asked.

Interesting Notes From the Quiz:

- It's okay y'all, no one needs to know how to spell "deciduous" without looking it up.

- Pretty sure the folks on the International Space Station aren't as concerned as the rest of us about the availability of wi-fi. "Air" probably tops their list.

- Y'know, I bet if you ran for Governor of Texas under the name "Texas Guy," you could probably pull it off.

- Thanks to the team that gave me their extra slice of cake!

- Props to Surprisingly Conservative Big Dogs T-Shirt for drawing successively more disturbing cartoons of dogs saying offensive things on their answer sheets! I appreciate your dedication to the craft.
