Rent-a-movie Weather

Madison, this weather is trash. I was trying to use it the pre-cap to tonight’s trivia show at Glass Nickel Pizza, but couldn’t find anything I felt good about. I explored several options:

  • Something about trivia questions being ice bullets and the way all the trivia teams got killed by last week’s show was nearly the perfect crime. Until one veteran detective figured it all out.
  • There were polar bears in a dream I had recently.
  • The Polar Vortex is actually caused by the chilly reception the show last week received.
  • Co-opting the first two verses of The Tragically Hip’s 1998 track, Thompson Girl. Except for that part about a Nickel Stack. That is some Manitoba slang I do not understand.
  • Just a picture of Michael Fassbender, which would be a reference to the film The Snowman.
  • The OT loss of my beloved Sacramento Kings to the allegedly best team in the NBA, the Milwaukee Bucks.
  • The concept of getting Vin’s younger brother Mitch’s friends into harnesses and using them as sled dogs. Just so you could picture me yelling “Mush! Mush!” while a team of people were running through the snow to a constant cacophony of  “Bro bro bro yo yo bro yo yo yo bro bro bro yo bro”. We would call it the Idiotarod.
  • Something shitty and smug about Global Warming.

I’m more than happy to go deeper on any of these subjects tonight, but there will also be a trivia show happening. You can catch us in our usual spot, the basement of Glass Nickel Pizza on Atwood. There will be good drinks, better food, and the best 50 questions you could possible hear. All you have to do is be there. The show starts at 7pm. See you then.
