You at Your Geekiest

Postby Asaf » May 14th, 2013, 4:13 pm

So let's see what you're geekiest at?

At this time, I'm geekiest at improv of course and The Big Lebowski which I have seen so many times for work at this point.

Ask me your trivia on these and if I'm stumped I will admit it. The person who stumped me will post what they want to be trivially quizzed on. And so forth and so on.

So begins what will be the geekiest thread in AIC Forum history!

Also, we have to employ the honor system that people are not using the internet to answer the question.

Ooo! Fun.

Trivia question: name a city in which the Shakespearean adaptation The Two Gentlemen of Lebowski has been staged.

Name three bands that include or included cast members of The Big Lebowski.

EDIT: Real-life bands only. The Fabulous Baker Boys doesn't count.

Does the Blues Brothers redux that included John Goodman count? He actually toured with Akyroyd.

And then there is Aimee Mann who was in Til Tuesday and Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers.

I'm inclined to say that doesn't count for anything, but I'll give it to you on that technicality. I would have also accepted the Flatlanders (Jimmie Dale Gilmore).

Easy-time, but why not: Speaking of bands, what real-life band is Autobahn a nod to?

And speaking of real-life things, what's the name of the real-life person The Dude was based on?

And speaking of multiple things, what are the three (pretty sure it's three) items The Dude reported to the police as stolen from his car?

Autobahn I assume is a nod to Kraftwerk and I forgot the name of the real life Dude.

So, Jeff, you are the new Geek Emeritus. What is your topic of geekery?

Yay! Jeff Dowd is the real Dude, as the Internet will confirm.

Man, I don't know what I want to be quizzed about. I'm thinking it out as I write. I kinda want to be quizzed on one of my fav filmmakers, like Truffaut or von Trier. But I also know a lot about Weird Al and astronomy. And Monty Python. Or the movie Brain Candy. Yes, that's it!

I've seen the movie Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy more than I've seen any other movie. Please quiz me on that film.

And remember, of course I'm not looking up any answers, so y'all don't either, okay? Cool.

BRAIN CANDY!

How did Dr. Chris Cooper's father die?

In what general style/motif is Dave Foley's psychiatrist character's office and wardrobe?
