Meet Guest Host Nick

Guesthost Nick Blumberg
Guest geek host Nick Blumberg is a journalist, a Sun Devil, and the co-parent of a mentally unhinged Corgi mix. Raised by his dad on a steady and diverse diet of all things geek and a proud geek to this day, he also loves art, music, and nonfiction.
Shameless geek interests:
  • Star Trek (Voyager, DS9, TNG, TOS, the old and new movies — okay, basically everything except f*cking Enterprise)
  • Star Wars (owns a replica Revenge of the Jedi poster — Google it)
  • Batman (faves: the really dark, sans-Robin Detective Comics in 70s, The Long Halloween, Year One, the Dark Knight Return & DK2, that time they shot Commissioner Gordon, the Nolans, and also the Clooney Batman when it’s on TV and there’s alcohol involved)
  • James Bond movies
  • 60s & 70s Marvel Comics (think Jim Steranko drawing Nick Fury & Barry Windsor Smith drawing Conan)
  • Sherlock Holmes in all his many forms, but especially the form that looks like Benedict Cumberbatch

Educating [Geeks] Drinking Game – Simpsons Treehouse of Horror



If you’re planning to spend some time in the Simpsons Treehouse of Horror this Halloween, we hope you’ll give our drinking game rules a try. The geekhosts recommend watching with an appropriately themed character drink.

Drinking Game Rules:

Take a drink whenever someone says or does the exact right thing without intending to

  • i.e. Abe saying “that doll is evil” during Clown Without Pity
  • Homer killing zombie Flanders “He was a zombie?” during Dial Z for Zombies

Pick some of your favorite lines in the episode you’re watching that everyone must say when they come up. If anyone fails to say the line, they must take a shot

Every time you catch your friend quoting the episode you take 1 drink, the quote offender takes 2 drinks (mandatory lines are exempt from this rule)

Take a shot every time Willie takes an axe

Take a shot any time there is a Marge hair gag

Take a drink every time you think “they should just listen to Lisa!”

Take a drink every time someone dies

Take a drink if the episode ends on a heartwarming note

Take a drink any time Homer says D’oh

Take a drink any time Homer eats a doughnut

Finish your drink if Maggie speaks

Finish your drink if James Earl Jones makes a voice appearance
