2015 – “Game of Trivia”

We are happy you have journeyed to Game of Trivia as imagined by the Goat Posse. It was the first year Captain F had not physically attended Trivia since his first phone shift in 1994. But it was for good reason as a little goat needed care at home. Captain F’s major contributions were with the INTRO which are detailed below. However the Posse is not one, it is many and they did MUCH this year.

It was an insane harvest of original productions starting off with a Top Ten List of Game of Thrones quotes that may or may not excite your lover. The Phone Bank is always a great foil and we found that they are dedicated lot, you may need to hear their pledge. (More…)

  • 2015: Intro: Game of Trivia

    This was an interesting year for the INTRO as Captain F conducted the final assembly of the piece while taking breaks to store beast milk or serve it to his first little goat. Durty A and CoCo were equal players in gathering, preparing and building sections of the INTRO. Like last year, a fair amount of the editing and conferring was done over chat as the three of them were always in different locations down to the end. In the past, the intro was always finished with one final push, in the studio at KVSC. Like with TSPN, Captain F was given a hard deadline for GoT, the Thursday before trivia. Then the piece was transferred to Durty A and CoCo, who were already in St. Cloud, to do final polishing, including adjusting finals levels and smoking out gremlins.

    One reason to listen to this version…

  • 2015: Intro: Game of Trivia (Aircheck Version)

    The INTRO is produced to be aired on radio and that is where you can feel it’s full impact as a hype piece for Trivia. This year there was a slight hiccup in the very beginning which you will notice. To hear the original version listen to the original version here.

    We are a little bummed this happened because every part of the intro is calibrated for maximum effect including our Goat Posse tag at the beginning. That tag is the usual branding but over the HBO “Original Programming” tag at the beginning of many of their productions. This is not entirely heard in the “Aircheck” version because at the penultimate moment at the start of Trivia, The Voice of Corn forgot to turn on the channel on the board that the playback computer is routed through.

    We are willing to forgive him because…

  • 2015: Year In Review

    It’s a year in review, but it’s very meta. It’s much of what didn’t make it into the productions; what we were thinking about you when the mic is not on, okay it was.

  • Pour Some Gravy On Me

    This masterpiece, by Friend of the Posse Trevor, was created specifically as an introduction to “Hold the Gravy”, the annual Trivia Mashup Music show hosted by Coco and The Rhyminister (Skinny D subbed for him this year).

  • I’ve Met Every Team

    Friend of the Posse, Casey, tackled a massive undertaking – including the name of EVERY team – all 64 – in a song!  This hadn’t been done since the Shake a Hamster Band recorded Trivia As We Know It in 2002!

    Lyrics

    I was totin’ my pack a long this dusty St. Cloud road
    When along came a Dodge van with a volunteer care package load
    Jo said, “If you’re going to Trivia, Mack, with me you can ride.”

    She asked me if I’d seen a road with so much dust and sand
