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.

Sure, we all know Roald Dahl wrote the classic book The BFG, detailing a story of a benevolent giant who collects good dreams to give to children. What most people don’t know is that he also provided the inspiration for the BFG from the Doom and Quake series. That’s right - one of our favorite children’s authors envisioned a plasma-shooting firearm for video games that were decades away from being released.

While taking a break from writing kids’ books, Dahl dabbled in international espionage by writing the story for the James Bond filmYou Only Live Twice. It was only after immersing himself in a world of violence and gunpowder that Roald’s imagination really started working, and his mind started concocting whimsical ideas of grander and implausible weaponry.

First, there was the Sporkler - it shot electrically-charged water bolts at its target. Then, he devised the Flamgoodle - a flamethrower-looking weapon that shot the color blue at people. No fire or anything, just a color.

Then, Dahl frantically awoke in the middle of the night with his largest idea yet. The idea that appeared in his mind would shoot bright-colored plasma orbs at a target, vaporizing them instantly.

However, he couldn’t come up with a name for his latest manifestation. Dahl wanted to tell the world about his most fantastical idea, but he couldn’t think of a fantastical name for it. Finally, after being asked “what is it called?” for the umpteenth time, Dahl finally blurted out - in the finest way a Welsh person can - “it’s a big fuckin’ gun.” And so the legend began of the true BFG…

——————————

Wearing their previous week’s failure like a badge of honor, Marcellus’ Briefcase absolutely destroyed the competition and took home the first place prize. Meanwhile, we had a tie between Titties on Yo Forehead and Now Introducing Hawaiian Airlines Super Economy Class, so OF COURSE I made them dance battle. When the crowd was asked who got served, Hawaiian Airlines’ hips didn’t lie, and Titties’ worm came up short. 

And that concludes this week’s edition of “Sentences I Never Thought I Would Ever Type”.

Interesting Notes from the Quiz!:

- A couple of teams knew that Davos was indeed a real place. Well done.

- Goddamn, Hall & Oates know how to jam.

- Our Sooner or Later round was crushed by anyone who has Netflix and spare time.

- Some people were quite proud of how much they knew during Round 6. “I knew ALL the answers for the Jeffrey Dahmer questions, Alex…” OK, I’m going to need an escort to my car now.

- MORRRRTALLLLLL KOMBATTTTTTTTTTT (laser noises)

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.

The cold grip of Winter has passed, and Spring is now here. That can only mean one thing - music festival season has arrived. I’ve been to a handful over the past couple years, and I have some friendly advice for anyone planning on trekking to a field or woods to listen to music for four days:

Water, water, water

This is common sense, but you’re going to need a bunch of water when you’re roasting in the sun. I ran out of water one day during Bonnaroo last year, and I thought eating a bunch of ice cream to “quench my thirst” was a good idea. The thing is if you do that, you still pass out from dehydration, and you just have a mess of chocolate and vanilla on your face when you’re laying in the middle of a field. And then everyone thinks you just ate a bunch of ice cream to the point of gluttonous blackout, so no one is calling over a paramedic to save your life.

You will see a lot of topless people…

…but not necessarily the topless people you want to see. For instance, I saw Paul McCartney perform last year, and of course he draws a cornucopia of demographics to his shows. During the set, I look to my left, and a woman that had to be in her 70s is flashing Sir Paul in the middle of a crowd of 80,000+ people. The chances of him seeing her display of affection (I guess?) were very slim, while everyone in a 30’ radius got an eyeful. Thanks? No thanks.

Drug dealers are ninjas

Sure, there is going to be some illicit substances at these things, and it’s not the worst thing in the world. For the most part, people either keep to themselves or are basking in the glow of music and communal camping.

The people peddling their “wares” though are the most guerrilla salespeople I’ve ever encountered. First, you have to find a way to get the goods into the campsite after going through a rigorous vehicle search. It’s like a lamer version of the US/Mexico border. Though if you can make it through, you’re all set.

As I walked through the different festivals I’ve been to, I’ve always been pitched drugs in passing. The guys are straight out of Assassin’s Creed or something because they look completely unassuming and blend in with the crowd, then you hear “ketamine…acid…” whispered in your ear so subtly you think you thought that shit yourself.

Ultimately, if you do go to a festival this year, have fun and don’t die.

—————————

A one-man team came into Natty’s tonight and laid down the hurt on everyone. Allen Havey Rules Mad Men also almost got a perfect Round 8 score by himself. Either way, Soggyworms had to relinquish the lead they had the whole night for a second place finish. THE BAR HAS BEEN RAISED.

—————————

Interesting Notes from the Quiz!:

- “Linebacker” does not have the “L” and “B” next to each other. You know, like “fullback” does.

- Counting Crows are the worst.

- While incorrect, I believe the original working title of While You Were Sleeping was, in fact, Dick Ticket.

- I would love to read about the fantasy adventures of Cellblock Baggins.

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.

Music is one of the greatest inventions in human history. That’s hard to argue against. Music can inspire, console, embolden, and heal. In tonight’s case, it can also spurn a room full of white people to start singing Biz Markie’s “Just a Friend” in the middle of a round. 

It was quite obvious people were psychologically compelled to sing along to the old school jam. A slight murmur started in the room, and as I turned the music volume down, the decibel-level of the crowd increased to a fever pitched “OHHHH BABY YOUUUUUUUU, YOU GOT WHAT I NEEEEEEEEED.” Yet another magical quiz moment at Natty Greene’s.

However, it got me thinking of other songs white people can’t help but sing out loud in a crowd full of strangers. Here are a few examples so you can prepare accordingly in the case you find yourself in a room full of drunken people and the song comes on:

Europe - “The Final Countdown”

This song suffers from the classic case of shouting the song’s title in the chorus, then everyone erupting into off-pitch mouth synthesizer noises. For the record, I tried typing out the synth notes of the chorus in text, but that shit is damn near impossible. DUH DUH DOO DOO DUHDUH DOODOODOO. Fuck it.

Bon Jovi - “Wanted Dead or Alive”

You can’t really argue against this. Hell, I’m guilty of holding a tall beer in one hand, and using the other to grab a friend by the collar of his shirt to yell “DEAD OR ALIIIIIIIIVE” right in his face. It happens.

Bon Jovi - “Livin’ On a Prayer”

Mr. Bongiovi has got crowd chants on lock, and this ditty is no exception. There’s a reason why this is generally one of the last songs played at the bar before closing time, and the ladies can’t help but swoon at the guys yelling they are “HALFWAY THERRRE!”

Garth Brooks - “Friends In Low Places”

All I had to do was type the name of this song, and you’ve already started singing it in your head. Don’t deny it.

———————————

The lead was held down by Free Come Day the entire night, but not without foes trying their damnedest to unseat them the whole time. In the end, second place was decided by one point, and You Know Nothing, HBO Go! went home with the gift card. Well played, peeps.

———————————

Interesting Notes from the Quiz!:

- After going through three cycles of incorrect bonus question answers at the end of Round 8, I now know what Quiz Purgatory feels like.

- It did fit with the round theme - I’ll give them that - but “Wu-Tang” was never the name of a Chris Rock sketch.

- I’ve said it once, I’ll say it again - That Thing You Do! is one of the best movies of all-time.

- Rita Repulsa.

- Our first place team’s name might be Free Come Day or Free Cone Day or Free Corn Dog. Ultimately, don’t write your team names in cursive-ish.
