Podcast on Sunday!

Saturday, May 8th, 2010
Doubloons, skull & crossbones rings, and gift certificate for rum were awarded to the biggest Goonies in the house at the most recent lunar quiz: behold JERK ALERT‘s Booty!


I also humbly request your presence at my next adventure – this Sunday at East Burn, during the standard Triviology fun, Synth-Bio Productions will be recording a podcast. I’d love a great turnout, with folks ready to tell their best quizzery stories to the nice people with the microphones. Come out and play with me! Showtime is at 6:00.

Goonies Never Say Die!

Saturday, May 1st, 2010
Fellow Goonies, get ready for tomorrow’s quiz adventure at Peter’s 19th Hole (@ 7:00)! Rich stuff awarded to the winning team will include a trophy, gift certificates to the bar . . . and I have a feeling that there might be some Baby Ruths involved as well. On Monday (also @ 7:00), there will be yet another lunar quiz for the young at heart – go to Ella Street Social Club for Pooh, Whos & Wild Things, which will challenge your knowledge of kids books.

And now, an opportunity for all you glory whores out there to amp up your quizzery experience (I’m looking at YOU, Willocalypse, Midas Touch My Balls, and Drunken Regrets!) . . . next week, the good people of Synth-Bio Productions would like to attend a night of Triviology for a podcast! I believe this will be the launch of a monthly podcast focusing on all kinds of gaming in Portland (which is a capital idea!), and this first episode will focus on all of the nominees of the recent BarFly awards for Town’s Terrific-est Trivia Jockey! David Walker & Polly Pospisil (who was a distinguished fellow BarFly nominee) would like to interview players, so I’d of course love a great turnout, with folks ready to tell their favorite Triviology stories. As of now, it looks like La Merde will be the chosen venue (Thursday, May 6th @ 9:00), but I’ll post the details on my website as soon as we’re sure. If you prefer your glory in written format, remember that you can have your own team page – just send me anything you want to say about your crew and I will post it. Check out the latest addition, which finally unravels the mystery of how team Linda Is A Whore got their name!
