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

Ointment is a weird word.

The daily news cycle in our country can’t sustain itself without constant controversy, and, by now, we have all likely heard about the friction being created by the impending debut of the new Seth Rogen/James Franco film, The Interview. The movie’s central premise of an attempt to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un has the totalitarian state in a tizzy. Many believe the recent hacks of Sony Pictures Studio is retaliation from the Koreans for blaspheming their dear leader, and the ripple effect of their alleged actions is now affecting the potential release of the movie nationwide.

The New York premiere of the film has been cancelled as a result of the building pressure against the movie, and Carmike - the fourth-largest theater chain in the US - has decided not to screen it in any of their theaters. And while the movie’s content isn’t necessarily being censored itself, these actions certainly highlight the steps being taken to silence the movie altogether.

Hey Hollywood, do you realize what you’re doing here? 

You are on the precipice of doing something you’ll never be able to take back: by limiting the movie from being seen - and, at this point, it’s unclear how many more theaters will back out of showing the film - you are running the risk of adding The Interview to a long line of groundbreaking paradigms of cinema that were banned and/or censored in their day. I’m talking about The Exorcist. A Clockwork Orange. The Evil Dead.

Yet here we are, a movie about killing one of the world’s most maligned leaders - that also includes at least one scene of Seth Rogen shoving something up his ass - is on the brink of being added to that list of influential movies.

The world gets darker and darker every day.

Yet another tight finish tonight at Natty’s as we only had one point separating our top two teams. Welcome to Taint Mansion came up just short of Team Team Team, but both walked away with some fantastic prizes. Well done, peeps.

I was forewarned by fellow quizmasterm Alex that Natty Greene's is no joke when it comes to Geeks Who Drink. Most patrons at other venues are their solely for the drinking and just so happen to quiz to pass the time. But here, the patrons are all about the quiz at hand. Drinkin' comes second. And you guys did not let me down. You were some of the strongest quizzers I've ever seen. You apparently take this thing seriously. Sorry I couldn't wrap up sooner so you could see the finale of Sons of Anarchy.

Favorite Wrong Answer: Name the song title and artist that inspired Yoko Ono to do her thing: Fun/ Cat's Dying

Alex Hofford (Hoffstradamus)

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

Ointment is a weird word.

Now that we have entered the final month of the year, we are undoubtedly in the “holiday season,” and most of us are breaking out our favorite seasonal movies to keep us entertained. A movie at the top of my viewing list every year is Home Alone, and I’m sure many of you would agree that it’s a priceless classic.

However, the entire movie is sheer lunacy. I recently read about how the Wet Bandits, Harry and Marv, are practically indestructible and should not have survived a majority of the traps set by Kevin McCallister. And I was sitting there watching this movie as a little boy believing I could foil any intruders’ attempts at messing with mi familia. Turns out I would have just been straight-up murdering fools as a pre-teen.

One other thing that kind of bugs me about the film is the infamous “Shoplifter!” scene. You know the one. Now, up to this point, we the viewers have already suspended all reality to believe a child would get abandoned by his family at Christmas. But in this particular scene, virtually EVERYONE overreacts to just a simple misunderstanding causing a community-wide calamity.

In this instance, Kevin is at a local grocery store trying to find a toothbrush “approved by the American Dental Association” because he’s disgustingly precocious and it’s a totally normal thing to ask about. Have you ever seen a toothbrush that’s not approved by the ADA? I have, and there’s a pretty easy way to tell if it’s not up to ADA standards - the bristles are made out of ACTUAL HORSEHAIR. City-boy should be fine with whatever toothbrush he finds in the store.

Anyway, he finds his brush, but when he approaches the register, he sees the creepy, elderly snow-shovel guy that’s been haunting him everywhere he goes in town. A steely gaze from the old man sends Kevin slowly reeling backwards toward the exit while fearfully clutching the toothbrush in his hand.

The old lady behind the register “tries” to get Kevin to stop by yelling at him, telling him he has to pay for it. But the lady won’t move out from behind the register. So she’s basically doing the equivalent of “(reaches out at Kevin) No. Wait. Stop. Don’t leave.”

Then ol’ Cement Feet barks an order at stockboy Jimmy to get the young crook before he leaves the store. Jimmy runs after Kevin, and when he gets outside - realizing the kid is too far away to chase him - he hails down a police officer, fingers Kevin (Archer: “PHRASING!”) as a shoplifter, and gets the cop to chase after him instead. Now Kevin is taking an overweight copper on a wacky ride across an open-pond ice skating rink, and all for a measly toothbrush.

This is how the situation should have gone down:

Creepy old man looks at Kevin. Kevin starts to back toward the door. Cashier tells Kevin he should pay for it. Kevin snaps back to reality, pulls $1.37 from his pocket to pay for it, and leaves. End of scene.

——————————————

Former champions Lasagna for One showed everyone how it’s done yet again as they climbed all the way to the top spot. It was a tough grind, too, as first, second, and third places were all separated by one point. R2-D2 Is a Soccer Ball almost snatched the proverbial silver medal, but I’m in Touch with My Prostate was in touch with their trivia skills, too, and they beat off R2-D2 (Archer: “PHRASING!”) for a second place finish. Excelente, mis amigos!

——————————————

Interesting Notes from the Quiz!:

- October is a busy month to celebrate or be aware about things.

- Round 3 taught us there are so many awards shows for music and movies. Leave it to celebrities to set themselves up for numerous pats-on-the-back.

- I really hope the stuntman getting “eaten alive” by an anaconda for a TV show dresses like Jon Voight’s character in Anaconda, and when he gets spit back up, he winks at everyone.

- As we found out in Round 8, the most populous borough in New York City is Brooklyn. When asked for comment, a Brooklyn resident said, “WE KNOW. We’re sardines out here.”
