So, although not actual millions, tonight could win you £390 which is enough to fly to any part of Europe and back and still get tremendously drunk once your there. Maybe even accommodation although if you pick a 24-hour city like Berlin, there’s no need.
Meanwhile, Tinchy Stryder, what’s that all about? Well, I can report that I got 42 seconds into his song before having to stop it cos it is shite.
Not that my opinion will matter to thon TInch. A quick Google for ‘Tinchy Stryder Net Worth’ brings up $4 million dollars, which is enough to fly to Berlin and get wasted every day for a year. With (good) accommodation.
9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £90. Cheat: One of the music round bits is by Alyssa Reid. See vid below:
I’m listening to the song just now as I type.
And I’m thinking ‘Why the hell did I put this in the music round? It is awful‘.
Perhaps I was thinking it would relate to the younger quizzers (it came out in 2011 which feels like three minutes ago in my rapidly aging world) and perhaps I was thinking it would simultaneously strike a chord with older quizzers (the far better original came out in the 80s).
Jesus it’s awful.
It’s got autotune, it’s got the weepy-crying voice beloved of modern singers, and a completely inconsequential rapper doing a totally meaningless rap break.
It’s the sort of music you like if you’re into real estate. It’s the kind of music they like in New Zealand. It’s probably on the a thousand Spotify playlists put together by people who have never been on a European city break, preferring instead to tan their bodies and flush their minds. I can be this much of a snob.
The experience of listening to the song compares unfavourably with doing the four times table over and over and over again. And I hate the four times table. Three, I’m fine with that. Five, nae bother but the four times tables sucks balls.
The song has stopped now, and so has my hatred. See you tonight.
I’m going to see The Fall in November (have a ticket anyway – the singer might die which would cancel the thing).
You can see why people don’t like The Fall. I mentioned the other day to the missus that I am going to see the Fall. She said ‘who are the Fall’- So I played her a couple of tunes and she said they were the worst thing she’s ever heard.
To be honest, I’m not that much into live music. I’d rather listen to the recorded version. But somehow, the idea of going to see the Fall is appealing.
