Monday Night Pub Quiz Action

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £90. Cheat news: Pink Floyd (pic round)

So the big bucks went last Monday and we return to £50 at the Brass Monkey but £90 is still pumping at the Safari. It’s all good.

Here’s the cheat source for Brass Monkey Leith:

This is what hip hop sounded like in 1990 and I still prefer it to (most) of the modern stuff.

Classic sound.

By the way, the early quiz at the Brass Monkey Leith co-incides with the England game (football world cup).

The pub WILL show the game, with the sound down, so you can enjoy England getting pumped off of Tunisia while you win the quiz. What a night out.

Football does not interfere whatsoever with the Safari, the England game is the last for today.

By the way 2018 deck of Cunto Cards are back in stock so stop me and buy one if you want to get in on the action.

Sunday Offers Peace Not Violence. Come To The Quiz

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Radiohead (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Portugal (pic round)

Sunday. Both quizzes were jackpots last week so we are down to the basics tonight: £30 available in each joint.

The world cup has started but, as ever, the tournament only really gets interesting in the knockout phases, so you can comfortably ignore shite like Slovakia versus Paraguay.

Tonight’s cheat music is misery-makers supreme Radiohead. To hear their individual brand of woe, click on the vid below.

If you’d like to extend the pain, someone has put the osng on youtube at 800% slower. Naturally, it’s been viewed over half a million times:

Listening to Radiohead at one eighth of the speed is very Sunday. It’s like the old days when I used to go to church (as a child) and then you’d come home and it was still the morning and you felt like life was going to last forever, not in a good way.

This is the eighties of course, way before instant entertainment. If you did dare to switch the telly on the very best it would get would be Little House on The Prairie but after that it would just be endless Harry Secombe, Landward, Judith Chalmers, Songs Of Praise, Cliff MIchelmore, Ski Sunday, Horse of the Year Show, Michael Aspel.

SUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNNNDDDDDDDDDAY

Also, BBC 2 in those days would, like a used-up uncle, take several hours nap in the afternoon. It would sometimes look like this:

Image result for bbc tv sunday afternoon 1983

Nothing ever happened. If you went outside, all the shops would be shut and all that you had to fill your head were thoughts of imminent nuclear destruction by the Soviets (another early-eighties slice of fun)

Dial forward to the era of the super-information highway and you can now have high-def porn, followed by World Cup, followed by buying shite off of ebay. Then get La Favorita to deliver a pizza of your choice.

I guess Radiohead are just trying to recapture the days of nothingness.

Having considered this now for a few minutes, I am more sympathetic to their cause. Especially with the 800% slower thing. Nice.

Oh, I nearly forgot to say: come to the quiz.

Yo!

Thursday Is Coming. Prepare.

Quizzes Tonight:

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

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

The music cheat for the Newsroom tonight is Genesis, led by evil centre-forward and all-time BEAST, Phil “the widowmaker” Collins.

The song, as Phil Collins revealed in his 1992 autobiography ‘I Am The Beast‘ is a prediction of what will happen when the rapture finally engulfs the Earthly plane and the dark lord, Satan himself (who is currently abating his dark majesty to inhabit the body of a drummer) will once again grow to his full size and begin the final destruction of humanity.

Collins’s evil acts such as famines, tsunamis and terrorism are just placemarkers, time-wasters, minor acts of cruelty, amusements until Satan returns in full.

Note the lyric “slowly tears you apart“.

The final showdown of humanity versus the Devil aint gonna be quick. It’s gonna be nasty.

You read it here first.

Mega Wednesday For Mega People

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: AC Milan (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £60 Cheat: Rascal Flatts (music round)

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey:

God it’s fucking awful.

It’s modern country music which equals = sentimentality multiplied by patriotism and raised to the power of schmaltz.

The youtube comments are full of people who have “lost people” to cancer etc. If you like reading shit like “Take A Break” and “Love It!” magazine, you’ll gorge on these comments like a gannet eating a discarded fish supper at North Berwick.

I understand it, but personally it makes me feel like killing myself by jumping into a vat of Golden Syrup.

Luckily, being a music round clip, the pain of this audio-diabetes will be limited to around one twenty-second clip. Twice.

Actually, three times if you count the bit where I do the answers but usually I’m talking at that point so the glucose will be thinned out with my horrific cynicism.

Bit of a cunt’s choice.

Speaking of which Cunto cards are back in stock and I will have a few decks with me tonight if you’re looking for a pack.

Yo!

Monday Night Pub Quiz Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£150. Cheat: Thailand (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (music round)

A hundred and fifty quid? You could get a new kitchen for that probably, I don’t know, I’m not really in the market for kitchens.

Here’s the cheat source for Safari:

This is the straightest white man rock and roll possible. The sort of band that people like when they’re terminally afraid of showing any love for Eurovision pop just in case they catch the gay.

Doesn’t make the tune bad though, it’s nice. Good rock and roll. But don’t forget to bop to the pop too.

Rock makes you strong. But pop makes you great.

By the way 2018 deck of Cunto Cards are back in stock so stop me and buy one if you want to get in on the action.

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Mah Jong (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Julian Cope (music round)

Sunday. You can march along Princes Street for women’s rights in the afternoon then come to the quiz afterwards and win the money, blow those MEN out of the water.

Which men? The men that make up BLUE FOX TUESDAY, who are threatening to win another seasonal championship at the Persevere.

Blue Fox Tuesday Pub Quiz Champs
Blue Fox Tuesday – Sometimes Invulnerable

Tonight’s cheat music is Julian Cope (for the Tolbooth Tavern) with an interesting take on suicide bombers. It’s titled: ‘All The Blowing-Themselves-Up Motherfuckers (Will Realise The Minute They Die That They Were Suckers)‘.

No official video as Cope in a not a bankrolled mega-artist, but someone has put the song to some footage from Afghanistan. Here’s a non-reality version if you would like to hear the song but avoid the gore:

If you ARE actually a suicide bomber, then don’t. All you do is kill people and make a mess. Everyone is sad and nothing gets fixed.

Come to the quiz instead and win booze and money! Everyone is happy and all problems are solved.

Thursday Night Quiz Action in Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £90. Cheat answer: Galaxian (pic round)

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

The music cheat for the Newsroom tonight is Alicia Keys.

The video is great. It starts off with Alicia Keys looking AWKWARD in her boots but this is soon forgotten as she hits the streets and reveals herself as a superhero who can HEAL DOGS with a single touch.

Then she rides a bmw motorcycle to an ABANDONED INDUSTRIAL FACILITY to pump her piano and then nearly busts some guy’s face with her mysterious powers which in turn make her CRY.

Brilliant.

Wednesday Was Built For You

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Rod Stewart (music round)

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

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey:

 

It’s the greatest song ever written and the greatest video ever made. It’s the moment when Rod Stewart single-handedly broke the seventies into small pieces and created what we still call “the eighties.”

The youtube comments on the video seem to be an awful lot to do with Grand Theft Auto San Andreas.

One bloke says

"GTA on PS2... best time of my life"

– that’s the entire comment and it has 1400 likes.

Is it me or is that hugely sad? All these people? And playing a computer game was the BEST time of their LIFE?

It’s a cliche, but they NEED TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE.

You can get out the house tonight. At the q uiz. And maybe even out of your mind. If you do, that’s fine. I’m not your dad although, increasingly, I’m old enough to be so.

By the way, I had a bit of downtime but Cunto cards are back in stock and I will have a few decks with me tonight if you’re looking for a pack.
