So Long and Thanks For All The Quizzes!
The Grand Lord Octavius

Hello one and all. So that's it then. That's the end of the quizzes at the Ram for the time being. I don't really have anything that funny to say about it. It was a good time and most of you will probably burn in hell. What I do want to say though is to attempt to express how much all of your support this past year.  Together, we built this quiz back up and everyone coming last night was really awesome for me. When I started the Ram I was still so green with this whole Quizmaster thing, but by the time I was done, I am a certified pro. Thanks for putting up with my random geekery, the terrible puns, and my (poorly) scathing political commentary.  I wish

Ballin' in the Ball Room
The Grand Lord Octavius

Ah getting the "sports" rounders panties in a twist: its what makes it all worthwhile. And by "it all" I mean putting up with entitled, drunk quizzers.  Everyone who played this week were the spoiled brats who had played a lot before, which either means they like me, or they are gluttons for punishment. The second one is more likely, but I have been surprised by my natural charisma before. I was disappointed that the round "tipping the staff" was about waitresses and not a Lord of the Rings and/or gay porn reference. That was my biggest letdown. The best part was obviously getting all the sports people excited with the word ballin' and then asking them about the Foxtrot.

Everything is Fine (except the music round)
The Grand Lord Octavius

This week was an easy quiz. Everyone loves Jack Nickolson, Palindromes, and terrible plant/tech puns.  However, something did weigh heavy on my heart this week. Our music round. I love most of those songs, and none of your knew any of them.  I wept (internally of course, real men save their tears in a special place reserved for when their favorite sports teams lose) as Counting Crows, Smashing Pumpkins, and New Kids on the Block went by on our speakers and all I got were blank stares from the quizzers. On second thought, maybe my quizzers don't have my early 90s music fixation. IN which case, why are you doing my quiz again? In other knews, a good half of you were confused

I Will Not be Paid Off!!! Except by the Government
The Grand Lord Octavius

Happy Inevitable Death, I mean Tax Day everyone! Despite an extreme derth of creativity in quiz team names, this week at the Ram had a couple of highlights for me. Don't worry, I won't be ranting about any pigmentally challenged basketball players this week, and I only cried a little bit when Terry Prachett was mentioned. Lets get right into our ever-looming doom week highlights: Apparently "Nature's Pocket" isn't just a Futurama reference.  This makes me both sad and happy. Nature has a lot of pockets when you really think about it. My entire existence could be argued is one long stint as Nature's Pocket My weekly team that makes me swear

John Freakin' Stockton
The Grand Lord Octavius

We finally had it. We finally got a quiz with a ridiculous amount of sports questions (about 2 1/2 rounds worth) and where were my detractors? Where were my sports ballers? Where are the people who scream at me every art round that they want more John Madden!?!?!?!? They were oddly quiet, (possibly absent) and totally frusterated at the hard sports questions. This is what I always wanted, eat crow sportsballers!   But in all seriousness, you guys don't know who John Stockton is? I have just one thing to say to you: 90's NBA, short white guy, EVEN SHORTER SHORTS.  The man is a legend, just in that he refused to be anywhere closer than 20 years behind on fashion

8 Degrees (Rounds) of Kevin Bacon
The Grand Lord Octavius

This week at the Ram it was April Fools. While most people would think that would entail some kind of elaborate prank on the quizzers, maybe something involving ice-cold water, whoopie cushions, or fake/real snakes, instead we had lots and lots and lots of questions on Kevin Bacon.  We have already lost (Bob) Hope, (Johnny) Cash, and (Steve) Jobs, there is no way I could live in a world that is also without (Kevin) Bacon.  I also would like to call attention to the most underrated movie of the illustrious Mr. Bacon's career: Tremors.  Is it a horror film? Is it a comedy? Why does Reba McEntire have an elephant gun in her basement? If the town only has one phone line then

I Relate To Alcoholics and Don't Sing N'Sync
The Grand Lord Octavius

Did you know that Al Gore has an Academy Award? Seriously?!?! Oh, nevermind, I bet its for the "ManBearPig" Southpark episode. That makes sense now.  I was so hung up on the fact that Al Gore has an Academy Award that I didn't even realize that I was singing a totally heavy metal song to myself that happens to sound exactly like N'Sync's "It's Gonna Be Me" for very short bursts.  Of course my singing was misinterpreted as me actually enjoying N'Sync, which as we all know is impossible. Let me tell you, the people who brought this up were pretty embarrassed when they realized their folly. Anyway, aside from the normal intellectual douchebags (Holmes, House,

The Swelling and Shrinking (not like that)
The Grand Lord Octavius

Hello everyone, As anyone who looked at the score sheet can see, we started out with a boatload of teams. And ended with . . . not a boatload. I personally didn't know the day after Cultural Appropriation of the Irish. . I mean St. Patty's day was such a big bar day. I guess march madess did start (kinda) and the weather was nice outside (kinda).   All this means though is that our brave and loyal quizzers who lasted the entire time were rewarded all the more, except the team that got last place that is.   This week we learned about American Painters (other than Bob Ross) people that won fights (both real and fictional), Naughty By Nature's defintion of OPP,
