Article of the Week - Informer

"Informer" is a 1993 song by Canadian reggae musician Snow from his debut album 12 Inches of Snow. Produced by MC Shan, who also contributed a verse, the single was a chart-topping hit, spending seven consecutive weeks at Number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was his biggest hit in the United Kingdom, where it reached Number 2, behind two different number one singles. In 2007, the song was ranked No. 84 on VH1's 100 Greatest Songs of the 90s.

In 1992, while on vacation in Queens, New York, Snow met MC Shan, and the pair produced a four-song demo. MC Shan then introduced Snow to producer–managers Steve Salem and David Eng, who signed him to their Motor Jam Records company, and licensed the music to East West Records. Shortly thereafter, Snow began serving an eight-month sentence in Toronto for assault. "Informer" began getting radio and MuchMusic airplay while he was incarcerated.
The song is based on a separate 1989 incident when Snow was charged with two counts of attempted murder. At the time, he was detained for a year in Toronto before the charges were reduced to aggravated assault, and he was eventually acquitted and freed.

In a 1999 interview, he referred to his criminal history as "a couple of bar fights."

Double The Points, Double The Fun

For some teams, double or nothing worked in their favor, for others not so much. Always a game changer! Nine teams showed up to drink while they think (I'm betting there's more drinking then thinking) but who's paying attention. Let's take a look to see how teams did.

Gunning for first place after falling to fourth last week, Question 30 Is My Favorite Cause Just Like Mallory, it has Double D's took home the $30 bar tab.

#nocomment Great comeback tho!

Climbing out of the best team name category, second place and a $20 bar tab went to Champion of the Westminster Dog Show: Hitler's Mustache.

Keep up the good work pals.

Shout out for best team name - The Bon Jovi Song Lasted Longer Than Half The Dudes In This Bar.

For the record, I played 25 seconds of that song people...

Goodbye February, you will not be missed. See you all in March! Warmer weather (hopefully), sunshine, and green beer!

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

Article of the Week - Ramesses II

Ramesses II (born c. 1303 BC; died July or August 1213 BC; reigned 1279–1213 BC), also known as Ramesses the Great, was the third pharaoh of the Nineteenth Dynasty of Egypt. He is often regarded as the greatest, most celebrated, and most powerful pharaoh of the Egyptian Empire. His successors and later Egyptians called him the "Great Ancestor". Ramesses II led several military expeditions into the Levant, reasserting Egyptian control over Canaan. He also led expeditions to the south, into Nubia, commemorated in inscriptions at Beit el-Wali and Gerf Hussein.

At age fourteen, Ramesses was appointed Prince Regent by his father Seti I. He is believed to have taken the throne in his late teens and is known to have ruled Egypt from 1279 BC to 1213 BC Estimates of his age at death vary; 90 or 91 is considered most likely. Ramesses II celebrated an unprecedented 14 sed festivals (the first held after thirty years of a pharaoh's reign, and then every three years) during his reign—more than any other pharaoh. On his death, he was buried in a tomb in the Valley of the Kings; his body was later moved to a royal cache where it was discovered in 1881, and is now on display in the Cairo Museum.

In 1974 Egyptologists visiting his tomb noticed that the mummy's condition was rapidly deteriorating and flew it to Paris for examination. Ramesses II was issued an Egyptian passport that listed his occupation as "King (deceased)". The mummy was received at Le Bourget airport, just outside Paris, with the full military honours befitting a king.

In Paris, fungus was found attacking Ramesses's mummy and killed. During the examination, scientific analysis revealed battle wounds, old fractures, arthritis and poor circulation.

People Don't Forget, Billy

There were eight teams battling it out at Camp Bar on Monday night for some pretty neat bar tabs. A couple challenges arose after I read the answers - specifically regarding Brad Pitt movies and what the Space Needle really looks like. It all worked out in the end and we had some happy campers.

It was good to see some familiar faces take first place after coming back from a winter's hiatus. Give Me Two Claps & A Rick Flair...(which was taken literally after I read their team name) took home a $30 bar tab with 46 points.

Down a couple teammates, Was Uranus On One Of Those 2 Emails From Billy Clinton? still managed to pull out a second place win. Well done team!

In the name of an all around good laugh, Monica Lewinski's Inbox Contained Way More Than 2 Dick Pics undoubtedly took home best team name. #truth
