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.

Awesome Team Name Shout-Outs!:

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.

It was a special April Fool’s quiz tonight at Natty’s. The weather has finally turned warm, the beer selection was on point, and the quizzers were ready to pick their brains for quiz night glory. It was all fine and dandy until Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson showed up and started inspiring everyone to be a better person. What a total buzzkill.

It started off like any other quiz. Well, besides the fact we reversed the round order for this special day. As I’m recounting the answers from the first three rounds, of course I notice various answers that are flat-out wrong and/or stupid. And, of course, I’m going to point these out to everyone. It’s right when I’m getting to this moment - the moment of crippling a team’s esteem in front of everyone - when The Rock bursts in and starts…being nice to everyone. 

Rock: “Hey guys! What are you beautiful people up to?”

Me: “Uh, wow, uh, we’re just doing a quiz, and…”

R: “A quiz!?!? I’m sure everyone in here has PERFECT SCORES!!!”

[crowd applause]

M: “Heh, not quite. The team We Believe in Nihilism wrote…”

R: [looks at team] “I believe in YOU.”

[We Believe in Nihilism starts swooning]

M: (sigh) “No, but their answer is completely wrong, though. They wrote Alexander Graham Bell instead of Thomas Edison.”

R: “We all make mistakes, Alex. It’s about how we learn from them and grow.”

[a din chatter starts amongst the crowd]

M: “You’re kinda ruining my swerve here, Rock. You’re being too…positive.”

R: “It’s what the world needs! Everyone in here is smart in their own way, and they can do anything they put their mind to. All they need is someone to motivate them to be the best they can be.”

[random “Yeah!”s echo out from the crowd]

M: “HAHA, OK. You think you can do a better job? Try it.”

So I let The Rock host the rest of the quiz. While I drank, The Rock gave everyone perfect scores, inspired a couple of people to go back to school, and got a few others to volunteer at the local ASPCA. Somehow I lost six pounds overnight. The dude inspired my metabolism to get its shit together. Incredible.

I kept the real scores, however. Homie don’t do that “support” shit at the quiz.

——————————

A Round 7 joker propelled Rufi Police to a first place finish by ONE POINT over last week’s winners, Warren Buffet Rigged the NCAA to Save a Billion. Well done. Don’t get used to having three 16-point rounds, though, folks. 

——————————

Interesting Notes from the Quiz!:

- Regardless of Smirnoff or Voodoo doughnut flavor, all of those flavors sounded like insta-diabetes.

- Lambeau Field didn’t renovate in 2003 (that was Soldier Field), but even if they did, no matter how you dress up a turd, it’s still a turd. FUCK THE PACKERS, GO LIONS.

- Getting two EMF questions in one quiz is the trivia-equivalent of a double rainbow.

- Not putting Vanessa Williams’ song “Save the Best for Last” at number 8 in round 7 is a gross oversight.

- Technically, wouldn’t Noah have been a spiritual predecessor to Waterworld, and not a successor? The water came first, right?

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.

Have you ever wondered what it smells like when you put an Arby’s sandwich and bleach in a blender? Well, it smells like New Orleans. I visited the city for the first time recently, and spent four days there for a bachelor party and music festival. While I ultimately had a fun time giving me memories that will last forever (and some that were erased for all eternity), I’m compelled to share one thing that everyone needs to know before they visit:

New Orleans is the city-equivalent of a vagrant

The smell. Run-down buildings. Everywhere you look, the city reminds you that urban development and investment left a loooooong time ago. The streets are lined with empty cups and signs asking for money, and I get it - life has been hard down there. But I saw someone walk outside of their own small business and just ask someone for money. Instead of, you know, a clear exchange for goods, the owner just asked for a passerby’s money. Dayum.

Oh, and that smell. Each morning, a fleet of trucks from Public Services spray the streets with a bleach solution to clean them. That’s right -the city is so dirty, they have to give their streets a bath. Gross.

I know some of you will say, “But Alex, what about the culture? The music? The food?!?!” and I will agree with you - all of those things are spectacular reasons to head to New Orleans. However, that aspect of city kinda loses its luster when you walk into a park and see a homeless person taking a shit under a bush and then sleeping under that same bush when finished. No bueno.

Steady play and a late Joker propelled Coach K’s Karavan to a First Place finish, and I’m Not Creative…I’m an Artist managed to hold on for second place. Excelenté!

Interesting Notes from the Quiz!:

- I sincerely apologize to the Duck, Duck, Goose team for messing up the rules of their game. In my defense, I’m really only paid to know the rules of GWD.

- “Two Hearts” by Phil Collins is one of the greatest jams of all-time.

- John McClane is the greatest badass of all-time.

- Nothing like having a question refer to the classic Seth Rogen character, Green Hornet.

Awesome Team Name Shout-Outs!:

- I Guess Mick Jagger Can’t Get No Satisfaction Now
