Quizzo News and Notes

Quizzo Bowl VII Promo from Johnny Goodtimes on Vimeo.

Sex Drugs and Rock n Roll week was as wild as it sounded. Well almost. We had three first time winners, the most scandalous picture round ever, and a quiz at Bards that didn’t start until 11:30 thanks to a flat tire. First off, thanks to everyone who stuck around at Bards last night. Greatly appreciated it. And thanks to the members of L. Ron Hubbard’s Diabetics who helped me get the tire fixed. Yeah, I know how to fix a tire, folks, but we were having some jack problems. No, seriously, I know how to fix a tire. Why don’t you believe me?

Anyways, big news on the quizzo front this week, as we found out from our good friend Fastball Bob that Quizzo Bowl VII will be on February 19th at the World Cafe Live, and will feature the return of Haulin Oates, doing not just Hall and Oates songs, but all of your favorite 80s jams. My goal is to make this the greatest Quizzo Bowl ever, and whereas in the past I have started putting together the questions the week before the event, this year I am already at work trying to figure out a way to incorporate music, comedy, and video into the quiz, if possible, to take it to the next level.

Quick starting time note for next week: Mike Minion’s quiz at the Westbury is being moved up to a 9 p.m. on Monday night.

And finally, I haven’t really been talking much trash to Denver this year as we prepare to head there for Geek Bowl at the end of the month. Don’t worry, I’ll make it up to you on Monday. Promise. The battle rap is almost done. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

  1. I don’t generally do commercial endorsements, JGT, but if I might make a suggestion under the category of making life easier, why don’t you join AAA. Then the next time you have a flat tire, you can call them, and they’ll dispatch one of their grease covered guys in a tow truck to come and change it, and you won’t have to fuck around with a jack for two hours in 15 degree weather with a 20 mile an hour wind blowing.

    I also know how to change a tire. But I haven’t done so in years, and if I remember correctly, I never changed one that there wasn’t some damn problem or other– lug nuts too tight, jack fucked up, whatever.

    On the subject of AAA, they’ll also come if you break down somewhere in the middle of the night in the middle of nowhere. They’ll give you a free tow, which is worth the price of membership right there. Additionally, I suspect your new blushing bride drives also, and do you really want her breaking down somewhere and having to depend on the kindness of strangers, some of whom as we all know aren’t always kind. I’m sure she’s a capable woman, and may even know how to change a tire, but why would she want to, and I also doubt if she’s an authority on other types of automotive repairs.

    Just a suggestion. Always looking out for your best interests.
