Thursday Night Pub Quiz Action In The Great City of Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Stevie Wonder (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: The Netherlands (pic round)

Thursday offers you the chance for Marchmont middle-class niceness and manners or dirty city-centre cocktail mayhem.

Both involve a bloody good quiz at the heart of it. That’s the engine of this night out, the driver.

If you’re coming to the quiz tonight, be aware of the cheats mentioned in the details above. It’s like a free answer. Here is the cheat clip for tonight’s’ Argyle music round. It’s your old pal Stevie Wonder who was the Stephen Hawking of his day but with more groove and less interstellar physics.

That’s eighties Stevie Wonder. Good song. Solid pop. But not as cool as seventies Stevie, especially when he was on Sesame Street:

He didn’t just fanny about with Grover either, he also laid down Superstition with full funk force. On the street, for the kids. Intense:

MAke all your Stevie Wonder jokes if you like but let’s see Stephen Hawking doing something like this. ANYTHING as good as this. No. Didn’t think so.

Cool.

You know what? The mood is too high. Here’s a picture of the sefront at Prestonpans just to mute things a bit:

Tasty Sexy Wednesday Night Out At The Quiz

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £150. Cheat: The Ting Tings (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: Lancaster (pic round)

Shaka Zulu! We’re up to £150 at the Joker and one of the star attractions at the Joker is seeing boss-man Roddy’s face at the moment we find out if its a rollover (boyish delight) or a jackpot (raging scowl).

Don’t miss his involuntary reaction tonight!

Meanwhile come and see what’s gong on at the Monkey. The new manager has thinner legs than the old one but, apart from that, things seem to progressing normally. There are still plenty of beers and plenty of students strung out on couches through the back like some kind of weird 1969 Amsterdam scene.

Here’s the music round cheat for tonight (which applies to the Joker). It’s the Ting Tings:

 

I like the song and I like the video. Both are catchy and simple, it’s the kind of thing we should be sending to Eurovision (LESS THAN A MONTH TO GO)

Excitement!

Yo!

Dr P

Monday Edinburgh Pub Quizzes

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Sugababes (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Phil Collins (pic round)

I don’t have time to write too much today because I’m trying to get loads of work done. Thank Jesus, Allah and Moses that the Easter holidays are over.

See if you want to ever get anything done, don’t have children. Although they are great and I wouldn’t have it any other way, etc, yada. etc etc.

Speaking of music, here’s the cheat info relating to the Monkey tonight: a music clip from the Sugababes who were like Girls Aloud but not as good…

It looks like the video was filmed in Stansted airport. How’s that for glamour?

Random fact: France was still using the guillotine when Star Wars had been released.

Drawing Contest – Art McPartlin Pished On A Scooter

Recent drawing contest entries from the Joker on a Wednesday night:

The challenge followed the Ant McPartlin drink drive debacle and you had to draw the former idol, stripped of his license and reduced to riding a scooter, pished, down Leith Walk.

Some folk took that mean a motor scooter. I kind of meant a scooter scooter.

Anyway:

Sunday Night, So Bright, Don’t Fight. Quiz Glory Awaits.

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Leffe (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Westlife (music round)

Hey. It’s Sunday and, as I type, the weather is good. Take advantage, go outside for a while.

Then when you realise how tedious outside can be (nowhere to buy beer, nowhere to politely piss) then come back inside to the pub where everyone is your friend and you can get food and booze and win the quiz.

Here is a clip from the music round at the Tolbooth tonight:

Just like the Wizard of Oz, the video begins in black and white and then dramatically leaps into colour just as it gets to the good bit.

The good bit in the Wizard of Oz is where Dorothy travels to Oz and kills the witch and meets the Munchkins and literally everything goes completely bananas.

In the Westlife video, the “good bit” is just the chorus. 1939 > 2001

I mean, it’s a decent enough song. It’s the sort of thing that would have easily won Eurovision in 1995.

I’ve started properly listening to Eurovision songs for next month. The criticism of this year’s Iceland entry is that it sounds like a winner from the 1990s. It is predicted to fail to qualify from the semis.

My favourite so far is Greece or France or Cyprus or Moldova. Not sure yet – will need a few more listens. I’ll keep you updated because I know you care, deeply.

Thursday Jackin’ – Jackin’ The Quiz

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Japan (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Zedd (music round)

Thursday has dawned like a fat boy at a buffet.

Don’t get beat to the cheeses. Don’t let him grab all the ham. Snatch a sausage roll from under his sniffy fatty snout right now, before they all get grabbed. Run!

That was a trifle fattist. Whoa! don’t mention trifle.

Anyway, here is the cheat clip from tonight’s’ Newsroom music round. It sounds like modern pop music in such a pre-fabricated way that it might well have been written by an algorithm.

Algorithms might one day be sophisticated enough to emulate Jethro Tull but the Tull will have always been the ones to do it first.

Fuck the robots.

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £120. Cheat: Walrus (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: Jethro Tull (pic round)

Another two rollovers last Wednesday so tonight’s pots are over a hundred quid each and getting bulbuous and exciting like something organic and bursty.

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey quiz. It’s Jethro Tull, the band that named themselves after the man who invented the seed drill.

The video’s a bit ropey, but.

Meanwhile, here’s what people look like when they win the quiz. Clock the satisfaction:

Yo!

Monday Glory, Possibly Tragedy

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Argentina (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Chase & Status (music round)

Monday is brilliant. Great people in great pubs doing great things to each other before, during and after the quiz.

The quiz is just part of it. The whole experience is what counts. Just the same as going to church is more than just the communion. More than just the hymns…

Speaking of music, here’s the cheat info relating to the Safari tonight: a music clip from Chase and Status. It’s not a hymn…

There’s some fairly heavy make up in that video. It’s like Arbroath in 1987.

Hey. Did you know there is a page on Wikipedia for Kings and Queens who are/were LGBT?

Pure sexy:

 

 

Epic hit. So powerful and so obviously written by the Bee Gees, perhaps the universe’s most potent songwriting team of all time.

Remember your quiz inspiration. Remember what Mahatma Gandhi always said: “CHEATING IS BAD”.

Wise words, Mahatma.

Thursday Night Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Kraze (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £200. Cheat answer: Mister Bump (pic round)

Thursday is happening. Whether you like it or not, Thursday is happening.

To make sure it’s happening right, you need to leave the house. This is an essential step. Then you must take more steps until you reach the pub. Once you get there, it’ll be great.

Meanwhile, here’s a clip from tonight’s music round at the Aryle. I remember this from when it was out, which is a LONG time ago. Quality tune, Chicago house dance music from the 80s (although I think the bloke who did Kraze was from New York). Terrific.

This is the stuff quizmasters used to dance to before they became quizmasters.

One day, the house sound will return and all your pissy modern ‘dance’ music will be eliminated. Last Sunday we had the return of dead Christ. Next Sunday we may see the return of true house.

You never know.

By the way – don’t miss Cunto Cards. Still some first edition packs left. Stop me and buy a pack at the quiz or get them online at cunto.org
