(No title)

When we look back at the world over the last two days, what is it that you’re going to remember? Twitter claiming they might double the max tweet length to 280 characters? Will it be that Young Dolph, the rapper who released the album Bulletproof, was shot in Los Angeles? Or will it be the …

Whatever you want to call yourself, you should know there is going to a rousing round of trivia happening tonight.

Let the Fall Leagues Begin

Whew. What a weekend. I’m over here trying to get my questions ready for trivia tonight and I’m still just thinking about what happened at Glass Nickel last Thursday night. I would tell you I’m going to ease into the vulgarities of the night, but there is no way to do so. It was the …

Joaks

I have yet to hear any feedback from last night’s show at Company Brewing. Sure, I have the scores, and we can go over them in a minute, but I want to know how Nick did with the pressure of REAL funny people on his heels. Did he do his bit on airplane food? Probably. …

You all know gypsy is a pejorative term, right? Good, so shout out to all that weak-kneed suckers who sat idly by last night and let a team name themselves “Gypsy Danger”. But I’m not here to lecture you. Just go ahead and head down to Gypsy Taco and smother your subtle racism in trash …

  Well well well, we’ve arrived at week 35 of the trivia year.   Is it notable? Sure. Then again, every trivia show is one for the history books. But this is also the league final for those teams who call the Up & Under home. But before we get to Tuesday, we have to …

The Return

Look who’s back now, fools and trivia pl-pl-players alike, it is I. And I have returned to drop trivia knowledge and unwanted meanderings upon you. With me is the newest addition to the Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia Family, my daughter Inez Ophira. She’s pretty great for being 12 days old. Sure, she was unable to identify …

Crowd Sourced Up In Here

What Up What Up, Milwaukee? Now that I’ve properly greeted the city as a whole, I’d like to take it down a little bit. Imagine we are going from a full Odd Future jam to a Frank Ocean solo fuck track. Or, to make it something you might better understand, this is like the really …
