How Do You Know That Trivia Building quiz at a time.

Operating as usual


Whelp, after a day of heavy rain, the Trivia Gods were kind enough slow things down for a bit and let us get five good rounds in under the tents and canopies (and inside, of course) tonight.

We’ll have five rounds paying homage to the First Lady of Trivia, Ms. Rebecca, who always has to share her birthday thunder with Thanksgiving, but tonight will be all about her! Well, inspired by her, but you get the idea.

7pm start time at Growler Guys. Oh, and our new heaters have arrived! They’ll be scattered about and cranked up to 11!

Tonight’s hint:

Start time for trivia is 7pm.

Bonus Trivia Fact of the Day!

On this day (October 14) in 2014, I wrote and hosted my very first trivia night, filling in for Quizmater Sam at Fix Coffeehouse in Seattle's Greenlake neighborhood!

If foggy memory serves correctly, I spent about three weeks writing and polishing up my questions, the final product of which still could have used a massive edit! Trivia that night took nearly three hours!

Nevertheless, the seed was planted. I would be asked to guest host again, and then again, more frequently, until, in late 2015, Sam decided it was time to step down for good, and then trivia night was mine all mine!

I still have every trivia I've ever written saved on a hard drive...looking back at those first dozen or so is like looking at the before images of a house on HGTV--the bones were all there but why the hell is there a toilet in the kitchen?! (In this case, the toilet in the kitchen would be me thinking of course everyone would know who journeyman baseball player Rico Brogna was)

But like with anything, if you keep doing it over and over, you get better. What we do on a daily basis (for our living)?now is so much better curated, written, and executed than what we were doing once a week for a few bucks then, but our bones--the excitement, the energy, the curiosity, hell, so many of the same original people playing--remain the same.

Thanks for all the years of's to many more!

Stay curious!

Trivia Fact of the Day :: March 28, 2022.

Movies :: At the 82nd Academy Awards, Kathryn Bigelow won the Oscar for Best Director for her war film, The Hurt Locker, becoming the first female to ever win the award.

At the time, she was only the 4th woman to ever even be nominated!

The first woman to get a Best Director nod was Italian Lina Wertmuller, who was nominated for 1976’s Seven Beauties. She lost the award to John G. Avildsen for Rocky.

A female director wasn’t nominated again until Jane Campion in 1993 for The Piano. She was defeated in the director race by Steven Spielberg and Schindler’s List.

Sofia Coppola was nominated in the category for 2003’s Lost in Translation, losing to Peter King for The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King. Coppola is the youngest woman (32) nominated for the award.

In 2009, Bigelow became the first woman to win the award, and did so in grand fashion, defeating James Cameron, who had been nominated for his epic, Avatar. Bigelow’s The Hurt Locker was made for just $15-million, where Avatar cost a reported $237-million.

It wasn’t until 2017 that another woman received a Best Director nomination—Greta Gerwig for Lady Bird. She would lose the award to Guillermo del Toro for The Shape of Water.

2020 became the first year where two women were nominated in the same year for Best Director—Emerald Fennell for Promising Young Woman, and Chloe Zhao for Nomadland.

Zhao would win the award, making her the second woman ever to do so, as well as the first woman of color to win Best Director, and the first Best Director overall from China.

In 2021, Jane Campion became the first female to earn her second Best Director nomination for The Power of the Dog, and at the 94th Academy Awards she won the award, marking the first time that women were named Best Director in back-to-back years!

Trivia Fact of the Day :: March 27, 2022.

Geography :: The New York City borough of Manhattan does not just consist of Manhattan Island!

Manhattan—also known as New York County—is the smallest of the city’s five boroughs, but without question its epicenter.

The vast majority of the land is constituted by Manhattan Island, which is 13.4 miles long, and 2.3 miles wide at its widest point (near 14th Street); overall, the island is just under 23 square miles in total area.

The island is bound on its entire western side by the Hudson River, which empties into Upper New York Bay (also known as New York Harbor) at its southernmost point; the Hudson separates Manhattan from the neighboring state of New Jersey.

The northern and northeastern portion of Manhattan Island represents a geographic panhandle, formed by the Harlem River, which separates the borough from the Bronx.

To the island’s east is the East River, which connects Upper New York Bay to the Long Island Sound, and separates Manhattan from Brooklyn and Queens; despite its name, the East River is actually a tidal strait that can change the direction of its flow, and is subject to very strong currents.

Directly across the Harlem River from the northernmost tip of Manhattan Island, is Marble Hill; while on the US mainland, and connected to the Bronx, this neighborhood is part of New York County. It had originally been attached to Manhattan Island, but the Harlem River Ship Canal, dug in 1895 to make navigation on the river easier, separated the two.

Also part of Manhattan is Roosevelt Island—located in the East River—which is 2 miles long and just 800 feet wide; it runs the equivalent of East 46th to 85th streets on Manhattan Island.

Just south of Roosevelt Island is the small, artificial Bellmont Island—aka U Thant Island—that was created by the construction of the Steinway Tunnel underneath; at just 100x200 feet, it is the smallest recognized island in Manhattan.

At the confluence of the Harlem and East Rivers are Randalls and Wards Island (originally separated but now joined together via landfill); the islands are separated from Queens by the Hell Gate tidal straight.

South of Randalls is the small, uninhibited island of Mill Rock, which is also uninhibited, but did contain a blockhouse with two canons during the War of 1812.

Within New York Harbor are three islands that are also part of New York County.

Governor’s Island is 172 acres and located approximately 800 yards south of Manhattan Island’s southern tip.

Liberty Island—home to the Statue of Liberty—and Ellis Island are both federally owned, and together make up the Statue of Liberty National Monument. Liberty Island is considered an exclave of Manhattan, while Ellis Island is shared by New York and New Jersey.


Controversial slapping incidents aside, let's take a moment to acknowledge all the achievements (and great trivia!) worth celebrating at last night's Oscars:

-Ariana DeBose became the first openly q***r actor of color to win an acting Academy Award (Best Supporting Actress)

-In winning for her role as Anita in the West Side Story remake, DeBose and Rita Moreno became just the third pair of actors (and the first actresses) to win Oscars for the same role--the others are Marlon Brando and Robert De Niro (Vito Corleone) and Heath Ledger and Joaquin Phoenix (The Joker). DeBose and Moreno are also the first to win their awards in the same category.

-Troy Kotsur became just the second deaf actor to win an acting Oscar, after taking home the Best Supporting Actor prize for CODA; his co-star in the film, Marlee Matlin, won Best Actress in 1986 for Children of a Lesser God.

-With her nomination for Best Director, Jane Campion became the first woman nominated for the award twice; with her win, she became the third female Best Director winner.

-For the second year in a row, a woman has been named Best Director (2020--Chloe Zhao; 2021--Jane Campion)

-For the second year in a row, a female-directed film has been named Best Picture (2020--Nomadland; 2021--CODA)

-CODA is the first Best Picture winner with a predominantly deaf cast, as well as the first winner in the category to have debuted directly on a streaming service (Apple tv+)

-Best Actor and Actress winners Will Smith and Jessica Chastain became just the 3rd and 4th actors, respectively, to win acting Oscars for films they were also producers of.

-At 20, Billie Eilish became the second youngest winner of Best Original Song (which she shared with her brother and co-writer Finneas O'Connell) for No Time to Die, from the latest James Bond film of the same name.

-Eilish and O'Connell also became the first pair of siblings to win the Best Original Song Oscar since the famed Sherman Brothers did so in 1964 for "Chim Chim Cher-ee" from Mary Poppins!

They didn't win, but...

-Steven Spielberg became the first person to receive a Best Director nod in six different decades!

-Denzel Washington became just the sixth actor to receive an acting nomination in five different decades!

-Washington's nod for playing Macbeth was also the 13th nomination for an actor playing a role scripted by William Shakespeare.
