“We don’t do cocaine but we like the way it smells” finished third at Boone’s Trivia Night with a score of 43 points. “That guy’s” team won the night with a score of 52.
It marked the first time that “cocaine” did not win or tie for the win in the past four weeks. The team was able to earn third place with a guess of when the term SCUBA first came into existence (1952, the team answered 1957.)
“It’s disappointing,” Dan said, “it wasn’t our night. We dropped a lot of points, four in the first round, and missed some questions that we usually answer right like some of the sports questions. We talked ourselves out of a couple answers, and there was a lot of frustration tonight.”
A couple of the team’s streaks were broken tonight, as they did not win a round for the first time in 10 weeks and did not eclipse the 50 point mark, a mark met consistently.
“That guy’s” team won outright for the first time in five weeks. They tied “cocaine” three weeks ago, and won a tiebreaker.
They had more members than last week, including many regulars returning, which ballooned their time size to nine.
“That guy” wore a white shirt with black stripes with silhouettes of velociraptors and chickens, which was truly a sight to behold. As with most times that his team wins, he emerges as the target of disdain and frustration by opposing teams.
“We looked like we just lost the World Series,” Nick said.
Dan added to the reference, “By the end we were down to our last two outs and we knew there wasn’t much we could do.”
The trivia night moderator spoke with “That guy’s” team at the end of the contest and informed them that their team size could be no more than six for next time.
“They’ve found away around that before,” Nick said “They’ll just sit next to each other and play it off ‘til the end.”
The rivalry will be renewed next week as “cocaine” seeks to regain their form and return to the top of the standings.
“We don’t do cocaine but we like the way it smells” competes next Tuesday at Boone’s Tavern Trivia Night at 8:00 p.m. (MST)
13- Your least favorite Beatles song Day
“Maxwell’s Silver Hammer”
Abbey Road, 1969
My car has a CD player, and right now I only have one CD in the car. That CD happens to be a copy of “Abbey Road” my friend burned for me years ago.
Now, “Abbey Road” is a good choice if you only have one album to listen to, and I have listened to “Abbey Road” all the way through five or six times in the past week or so. The last few times I have passed on “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer” because it disrupts the rest of the album.
In short, the song is woefully out of place. It doesn’t deserve a spot in the B-side medley (which flows ridiculously well) and it does not belong with the brilliance of the A-side.
“Maxwell’s Silver Hammer” follows two incredible songs (“Come Together” and “Something”) and precedes another vastly underrated song (“Oh! Darling”). I dare say that if you simply removed the song, you wouldn’t lose much. The rest of the album (B-side medley, “Here Comes the Sun,” “I Want You (She’s So Heavy),” “Because”) provides a ridiculous amount of quality, more than enough to replace a wasteful three and half minutes spent on “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer.”
Let’s just go ahead and blame That Guy. Focus your energies on him—we understand. He needs to be SHUT DOWN for this.
Yes, it would be appropriate to blame “That Guy” or - at the very least - I’ll channel all my possible (and remaining) energy towards stopping him tonight. Right now I am at a point where I am really motivated and want to keep pressing forward, although I definitely feel like I’m running on an empty tank. Perhaps I should receive a healthy dose of green tea or coffee. Suggestions?
The weekly preview for Boone’s Tavern Trivia Night will not be seen tonight (Monday) due to writer exhaustion. The preview will be seen on Tuesday, prior to the event at 8:00 p.m. We apologize for the inconvenience.
12- A Beatles song you know all the words to Day
The Beatles (White Album) 1968
“Rocky Raccoon” sounds like a song you’d hear in a mining town in California in the 1880s. I picture the Beatles standing in the corner of a saloon with a harmonica, piano, and guitar entertaining guests as they come back from a hard day’s (night) prospecting (like David Bowie does in the “Let’s Dance” video). The lyrics are pure folly and silliness, making it one of the funnest songs in the Beatles’ arsenal.
My favorite lines in the song are:
“Her name was McGill, and she called herself Lil, but everyone knew her as Nancy.”
“Rocky burst in, stinking of gin, and said, ‘Danny boy this is a showdown!’
But Daniel was hot, and he drew first and shot, and Rocky collapsed in the corner…”
11- Favorite Beatles era Day
Last Live Concert to Release of the “White Album”
Aug. 29, 1966 to Nov. 22, 1968
During this period The Beatles reached their musical peak in the studio. Their experiments resulted in music that captured the attitude of the culture and the times they were living in. This is the era of “Sgt. Pepper,” “Magical Mystery Tour,” and “The Beatles (White Album).” Many of my favorite songs can be found on the albums of this period:
“While My Guitar Gently Weeps”
“A Day in the Life”
“I am the Walrus”
“A Little Help from my Friends”
“Your Mother Should Know”
“All You Need is Love” (as shown above)
