2016 – “Trivia Cruisin’: Racing, Road Tripping, and Rock & Roll”

2016 brought a nice mix of original productions featuring a new crop of contributing writers and producers.

The year begins with a dramatic reading of Drake’s “Hotline Bling”. Produced by Piss Boy he and Bear act out a mis-dial gone horribly wrong. One person is in love, the other in sheer horror and then frustration.

By this year, Jim Gray was inducted into The Goat Posse as Number 2. To celebrate his Jim-ness Drrty A wrote a car ad that plays to Number 2’s Pontiac fetish. Pissboy and FoP Casey add some production assistance.


  • 2016: Intro: Trivia Cruisin’

    People love cars and this year we tried to tell a story about a car and a person and then a race for supremacy with danger at every curve. Drrrty A, CoCo and Captain F were the main collaborators for this INTRO including structure and writing, with the final mixdown completed at KVSC.

    The opening quote came completely packaged in the original Mathew McConaughey Cadillac commercial. We loved what he said and we loved the music. Unfortunately we could not find a clean version of the music so we couldn’t carry that vibe for a bit longer. Other classic car-era tunes include “Radar Love” and “Green Onions” which carries the Intro within the INTRO

    The final sequence continues to use the toss with names that are meant to provoke the hosts. If you didn’t recognize the voice mimicking legendary announcer Wolf Man Jack, it was none other than Bear. He played an entirely different role in the 2015 INTRO.

  • 2016: Intro: Trivia Cruisin’ (Aircheck Version)

    Our favorite way to listen to the intros: exactly as it aired on KVSC!  Complete with DJ lead-in and post airing reaction; it doesn’t get any better than this.

  • 2016: Year In Review

    A true collaborative effort this year, as Drrrty A, Skinny D, Coco, and posse friend – Eustice – all jumped in to help!  The team took a very different approach to the “Year In Review” this time, harvesting clips not just from their own productions, but from the previous 45+ hours or the contest.  The result is a more diverse and all-encompassing review of Trivia Weekend.

  • Dramatic Reading – Hotline Bling

    This is by no means our first foray into the “Dramatic Reading” arena; we’ve done it before with It’s Raining Jim, Wrecking Ball, and Fifty Shades of Jim Gray.  The previous entries have been a challenge line response, a straight read, and an advertisement for the source material.  This one takes the form of a presumably mis-dialed phone call, to hilarious results.  We can only blame this one on Pissboy as he conceived the idea; Bear voiced and produced.

  • GPO: Jim’s Pontiac

    A brilliant piece of “marketing” conceived by Drrrty A, produced by she and Pissboy, and expertly (and RAPIDLY) voiced by Bear, Jim’s Pontiac was inspired by our own Number 2‘s love of the Pontiac Aztek.  Friend of the Posse, Casey, also jumped in to lend a hand!

    And, yes, Number 2 really does own three Aztek’s!

  • Triviate

    This year, we present another track from the mind of Jam-oooh!  Previously, he birthed Goat Shop, but this time out, he wanted to parody Warren G’s Regulate. With Dude co-writing, Skinny D matching the flow of Warren G, Bear mastering Nate Dogg, and Pokéjohn expertly producing this mess, we present to you our Musicial Magnum Opus: Triviate.

    INTRO Triviators! We regulate all answers of the questions. We’re damn good, too. You can definitely be any geek off the street. You gotta have nerves of steel, though, if you know what I mean—no time for sleep.

    Phone bankers! Hang up.

    VOLUNTEER It was a long weekend, a cold St. Cloud
    Volunteer on the streets, they just been plowed
    I’m heading ‘cross campus, cuz I’m bored as hell
    I got homework to do, guess I might as well
    RINGER It’s my 23rd year at KVSC
    Score me a big hug from Mrs. Jo Mc.-B.
    Been waitin’ all year, it’s my favorite week
    Set the station up and sit back in my seat
    VOLUNTEER So I drag myself into 2-7 Stewart
    My name’s on the list cuz my prof said, “Do this!”
    I ask where to go and they told me, “Heads up!”
    Now I’m in the phone bank, so I guess I’m stuck
    RINGER Strollin’ through the hall, these are my best nerds
    We been doing this forever, way ahead of the curve
    I’m thinkin’ ‘bout the start, I know all the tricks
    When I see a noobie there all in a fix
    VOLUNTEER I grabbed a chair, I settled myself
    I asked the supe, “Can I get some help?”
    The phone started ringing, I took their guess
    Told them that I didn’t know, then I thought, “What’s next?”
    RINGER The noob is getting hemmed up and looking all around
    Ain’t none of them hearing him because of all the sound
    I gotta help out real quick before he starts to clown
    I best head right on over and calm this buster down
    VOLUNTEER I got the phone to my head
    Just put the thing down
    I can’t believe that I didn’t leave town
    If I knew what to say
    Just let me formulate
    I glanced to my left and I see a friendly face
    RINGER Sixty points on the line, one guess in the hole
    This team is ‘bout to have their chances turn cold
    Now they’re screamin’ and yellin’
    But it’s not too late
    Me and newbie here got to triviate
    RINGER I settled all them busters down
    They didn’t all explode
    Now I’m switching my mind right into supe mode
    “If they win the points, just click over here
    Don’t sweat it too much, it’s only your first year”
    VOLUNTEER Now no longer freaked
    I learned some new facts
    Before I was a hack, now I’m on the right track
    Stay up, stay up, cuz it’s fun
    K-V-S-C and me
    N-O-O to the B
    RINGER Just like I thought,
    Once out of that spot
    He started to have a blast
    In what felt like a short while
    His assignment hours passed
    At the end of his shift, he was happy as hell
    He said, “Man, I’d like to stay”
    I said, “You’ve got this down and you seem real nice
    There are free shifts all day.
    There’s a room full of food and we’ll feed you real well
    The next step is to deal with the smell”
    VOLUNTEER No sleeping
    To an expert level
    Bad funk, in the stall, I dare ya
    On a whole new level
    RINGER My movement hits the base and the base starts to tremble
    The screens
    Where trivia is life
    And life is trivia
    RINGER If you know what I know
    I can give you points for this
    In the Google era, jacked up with a Trivia twist
    If you’re stoked like I’m stoked
    There’ll be drinks at the bar Sunday
    And if you come back next year
    8-8-1 will modulate
