Article of the Week - Django Unchained

Django Unchained is a 2012 American western film written and directed by Quentin Tarantino. It is a highly stylized variation of the spaghetti Western, which takes place in the Old West and Antebellum South. The film stars Jamie Foxx, Christoph Waltz, Leonardo DiCaprio, Kerry Washington, and Samuel L. Jackson, and was released December 25, 2012 in North America.

The story is set in early winter and then spring, during the antebellum era of the Deep South with preliminary scenes taking place in Old West Texas. The film follows an African-American slave (Foxx), and an English-speaking, German bounty hunter posing as a traveling dentist (Waltz), named Dr. Schultz.

In exchange for helping Schultz collect a large bounty on three outlaws (hiding-in-plain-sight in the south, working in the slave trade) that he has never seen – but Django has, while being trafficked – Schultz buys and then promises to free Django after they catch the outlaws the following spring. Schultz subsequently promises to teach Django bounty hunting, and split the bounties with him, if Django assists him in hunting down other outlaws throughout the winter. Django agrees – on the condition that they also locate and free his long-lost wife (Washington) from her cruel plantation owner (DiCaprio).

Tarantino won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay (his second such Oscar since his 1995 win for co-writing Pulp Fiction), as well as the Golden Globe, and the BAFTA. The film grossed over $425 million worldwide in theaters against its $100 million budget, making it Tarantino's highest-grossing theatrical release to date.

I Remember My 21st Birthday...

In addition to trivia, Camp Bar celebrated the 21st birthday of one of their own, Monday night's fantastic server Sarah. We can all thank her for fostering the "Drink While You Think" motto by serving up those delicious adult beverages. As always, the Wager Bonus Round separated the winners from the losers. Let's see how our trivia pals finished out:

Per usual, this group of trivia peeps always manages to squeeze out some sort of victory and tonight it was first place. Cheers to "Happy Birthday Sarah! Now We Can Buy You Shots Legally" with 48 points. Guess we shouldn't mention those shots you were taking in the back bar last week.... :)

Second place goes out to "If We Win Best Team Name, We'll Buy Sarah A Shot" with 43 points.

Dumb yourself down a little bit and I might have picked this for best team name. Thanks for including me in your pic, team! But first, let me take a selfie.

Last but certainly not least, taking home best team name tonight is "The Heat Coming Off Of Lebron's Cleveland Steamer Is Something To Witness" with 41 points.

Until next week Milwaukee, drink while you think...

Article of the Week - Another One Bites the Dust

"Another One Bites the Dust" is a song by the English rock band Queen. Written by bass guitarist John Deacon, the song featured on the group's eighth studio album The Game (1980). The song was a worldwide hit, charting number one on the US Billboard Hot 100, number two on the R&B charts and the Disco Top 100, and number seven on the UK Singles Chart. The song is credited as Queen's best selling single, with sales of over 7 million copies. This version was ranked at number 34 on Billboard's All Time Top 100.

John Deacon's bass line was inspired by the song "Good Times" by the disco group Chic. In an interview with New Musical Express, Chic co-founder Bernard Edwards stated, "...that Queen record came about because that Queen bass player... spent some time hanging out with us at our studio".

In the early 1980s, "Another One Bites the Dust" was one of many popular rock songs that Christian evangelists alleged contained subliminal messages through a technique called backward masking. It was claimed that the chorus, when played in reverse, will be heard as "Decide to smoke marijuana", "It's fun to smoke marijuana", or "Start to smoke marijuana". A spokeswoman for Hollywood Records (Queen's current US label) has denied that the song contains a backward message.
