The Goat Posse really enjoyed 2012, as for once, the group resembled an actual trivia team with participants from four different age decades. The Posse welcomed back for the second straight year Dude, who returned after a multi-year hiatus due to real-life obligations. Dude is a charter member of the Posse and his sharp writing was missed.
In the weeks before the contest, KVSC had remodeled the forum studio with brand new equipment and the Posse was given exclusive use of the space in order to work out the bugs. The Posse moved in and felt very comfortable with Capt. F taking up 24 hour-a-day residence in the days before finalizing… (More…)
- INTRO: 33 1/3: Trivia Long Play – Air Check version
In the weeks before the contest, KVSC had remodeled the forum studio with brand new equipment, and the Posse was given exclusive use of the space in order to work out the bugs. This allowed Capt. F. taking up 24 hour-a-day uninterrupted residence in the days before, finalizing the Intro with help from KVSC Production Director, Bear, and Posse members, Mr. Choo Choo and Princess Buttercup.
The Trivia theme was a celebration of vinyl and the Intro was designed to take a parallel journey. One journey was to celebrate music and how vinyl helped music connect with their soul. The other journey was to show the evolution of vinyl from the first form of portable music to DJs who through scratching, used the vinyl a song was pressed-upon as the final accompanying instrument in that song.
Since vinyl and AM Radio were synonymous in both their heydeys, Historical Trivia Individual Al Neff was really the only person to “host” this journey. Al spent his rock & roll and radio formative years in the vinyl era. His formidable knowledge in this area and his golden pipes was the needle to the groove in presenting the theme to Trivia players. The Posse was very excited to have his participation in the production.
With just a few sign posts from Capt. F, Al wrote the “opening argument” and voiced it perfectly. One side noted: when Capt. F sent Al the broad themes the opening should cover their existential tone prompted Al to ask with a chuckle, “What drugs are you on drugs man?” If you don’t find yourself in the moment after hearing his words you haven’t been listening.
For Capt. F, this was one of the more enjoyable intros to produce in recent years. The intro exceeded all of our expectations and we are proud to present it to you as it aired at 4:53 p.m. Friday, February 10, 2012.

- GPO: Rescue A Phone Slave
Historical Trivia Individual Al Neff and first-time Posse participant and KV Alum Patrick Jaye collaborate to ape the emotionally overwrought animal rescue infomercial hosted by Sarah Mclachlan. It had been some time since Al had been at Trivia. Pat helped out many years ago on “Ursula Fabuline” back in 1997, but this was the first year he committed full-time to the Posse. Both Patrick and Al used to write the goofy awards given out at the awards ceremony. The Posse has been humbled by the opportunity to carry on that tradition these past years.

- One of our Favorite Moments from 2012
During the Safe Harbor show, the hosts attempt to read a question laden with a bit of innuendo. Normally, this is a fairly simple task, but add a dash of dance party, trim off a pre-read of the question, and a healthy portion of rotating stuffed sheep mounted by a stuffed bull, and you have a recipe for disaster.

- GPV: 5-Hour Shot of Ass
2012 marked the third year of operation for the Goat Posse Video Department which is some sort of miracle since the Goats have an aversion to images. This year, Phal wrote “5-Hour Shot of Ass” a follow-up “Can of Ass”. This was by far the most intricate Posse video production yet and required many of the various professional and private talents of Posse members. That expertise yielded wonderful on-set props, such as 5-Hour Shot of Energy bottles wrapped in custom-made “5-hour Shot of Ass” labels.
Dude used his art direction and Photoshop prowess to create video stills involving tater tots and cheese. There were also on location shoots as the Posse vid crew visited two team headquarters to record quotable gems as, “I don’t want smell spic and span…I want to smell like beans and ham”.
