Monday Is The Best Quiz Day Of The Week

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat news: Canola (pic round)

Great jackpots tonight. What’s not to love. Get to the quiz!

Cheat piece for the music round at the Brass Leith tonight, a female singer named Julia Michaels:

It’s a modern one, so it sounds kinda the same as lots of other modern hits, except with a lisp which appears to be her USP.

The “crying voice” used in these songs does my nut in. So many modern singers rely on tone of voice to convey the fact that they are sad.

I thought she looked British from the first minute or so but according to Wiki, she’s American. It doesn’t really matter but it’s funny how we need to know that sort of thing.

More interesting: she writes for others, including Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez. That might explain why she sounds a lot like them.

Monday is great and brilliant and I should have some Cunto cards with me tonight just in case you’re looking for the best gift of 2018.

Sunday Pub Quizzes On Tonight In Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Mars Bar (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Eddy Grant (music round)

Sorry if you were at the Persevere last Sunday when we were unable to go ahead with the quiz due to the large number of Hibees in the bar.

It was disappointing for me too but that’s just one of those things that comes with the territory but maybe we could crowd-fund a campaign to only have football played on Saturdays ONLY.

The good thing is that the pub agreed to make the jackpot a rollover, so we are up to £90 tonight. That’s cool.

Anyway, here’s tonight’s cheat item which relates to the music round at the Tolbooth Tavern

It’s Eddy Grant, the one where he’s got a raft rather than the one where he’s got a motorbike.

I like both. I might even play both tonight. Come to the quiz to win money and find out the happy or sad ending to this Eddy Grant whirlpool.

Yo!

Thursday Night’s All Right For Quizzing

Quizzes Tonight:

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

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £150. Cheat answer: Burning Man (pic round)

Tonight’s Thursday pub quiz action in the great town of Edinburgh offer you the sanctity of victory.

Not at all costs. We must remember that we are members of a civilization and at the moment our inner dragon commands murder, we must use our top-brains to resist such base urge.

Especially just to win a pub quiz. Jeez. Imagine being sent down for life imprisonment because you killed someone who was doing better than you at the pub quiz.

THINK!

IT’S NOT WORTH IT

Meanwhile, here is the cheat answer for the music round at Here’s their song that’s in the music round at the Argyle tonight:

It’s hoary old campaigner Beck, but back in the day when he was good. Bands and singers often go like that, you know: ace when young and shite later.

Not quizmasters – we get better as we get older.

I’ve posted some poor pop videos recently but this one’s great. All cut up and senseless. Nice.

See you at the quiz. Did you notice the jackpots tonight? £90 and £150. That’s decent.

Wednesday Quiz Wonder

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: City of God (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £150 Cheat: KT Tunstall (music round)

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey:

It’s KT Tunstall fae Scotland doing a song about being on the other side of the world.

Would the UK win Eurovision if they entered ‘proper’ artists like Tunstall?

Maybe not. Who knows. We tried Engelbert Humperdinck but he was so old-skool and old-hat that he could only come second-last.

I know most of you don’t care, but I’m still excited by this year’s Eurovision, even though it’s over for another year.

I am jealous of the Quiz Vanjie team who were in Lisbon for the week. Brilliant.

The one I like never wins, this year I liked France but they finished 13th. Shame. Quality song.

Anyway, I’m rambling and its nearly time for pop master, so let me finish with my favourite missing cat poster from last year…

A cat named Alan
“I ran away because you named me Alan”

 

Hope to see you at the quiz tonight

Tonight’s music round cheat:

Dashboard Confessional is one of those American bands that, to me at least, sound all exactly the same. I’m unimpressed but if their your favourite band ever please don’t let me piss on your chips.

Sunday Pub Quizzes In Old Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Kula Shaker (music round)

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

Here is the music round cheat for the Percy. It’s Kula Shaker who were popular for fifteen minutes round about 1996. I always associate them with Tony Blair and Chris Evans. It was those kinds of times…

Nothing more to say today except wasn’t Eurovision great as usual? By the way I am so sick of people attributing UK failure to Brexit and saying things like “it’s all political”. Total nonsense. Here’s why:

1. It’s got nothing to do with Brexit. The UK has been getting shit scores for years, including before Brexit. Try putting in a good song.

2. It’s got nothing to with Brexit part 2. There are 43 nations participating this year and a third of them are not EU members anyway. Try putting in a good song.

3. It’s all politics. Yeah, how come Israel won? Everyone hates them more than they hate the UK. Thing is, they entered a good song.

Drives me nuts like, British people complaining about how the Eurovision is unfair. My idea would be to try putting in a good song.

Yo!

Voice Better. Come And Enjoy The Golden Tones.

Quizzes Tonight:

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

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £100. Cheat answer: The Handsome Family (music round)

God almighty. Last week’s Thursday night quizzes were a savage assault on your ears. I sounded like a broken vacuum cleaner. Made in Albania.

The voice was history, broken and ridiculous. Like an alien clown in a dust storm. Marti Pellow would have cried.

But tonight, Pellow had better watch out because the golden voice is back. Yes.

Once again I sound like your actual Dr Paul and its a dirty big relief. I absolutely hated sounding like I did last week. It felt like an imposter was in my throat, like I’d been possessed by the ghost of a ninety-nine year old bark-smoking sandpaper salesman from China.

Meanwhile, the bloke out of tonight’s music round cheat tip answer band has a terrific voice as well. And I can’t sing. So maybe he wins.

His name is Brett Sparks and the band is the Handsome Family. Here’s their song that’s in the music round at the Newsroom tonight:

The song is brilliant and, as ever, the recorded version is best but there’s no proper video for it so I’m posting this live one instead. The bonus is that the other person in the band (Rennie Sparks – the singer’s wife) explains a little bit about how she wrote the song.

I like the Handsome Family. They have lots of songs where darkness and death somehow translate into sweet country sounds.

To be fair, they sound a bit shite on this video. But that’s live music for you.

If you have the time, listen to their song ‘The Snow White Diner‘ (video below). It’s about a woman who kills herself and her children while rubberneckers gawp and deaf people just laugh.

 

Anyway, the main thing is: COME TO THE QUIZ. See you later.

Wednesday Pub Quiz Scene In Funky Bonnie Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £120 Cheat: George Michael (pic round)

It’s Eurovision week, so I can hardly think about the quizzes properly due to the proper Eurovision excitement.

Did you see the first semi-final last night? Fucking magic.

Anyway, Here’s the music round cheat info for the quiz at the Joker tonight: it’s a dance music song with a fairly standard dance music video. But the video DOES include a lauderette so ye cannae beat that.

I wonder if there’s a playlist anywhere on youtube that just has pop music videos which include a lauderette as a location?

Maybe.

It’s 2018 and things are reaching that point where if you can think of it then it already exists, thanks to old father internet.

 

When was the last time you disco danced in a launderette? For me, the answer would be “the early 90s”.

Hope to see you at the quiz tonight

My Voice Has Repaired So Come To The Quiz, It Won’t Sound So Awful This Week

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: The Stranglers (music round)

Jeezo. Last week’s Monday gigs were bad enough. Wednesday and Thursday were worse. I sounded like a cartoon villain in sandpaper factory.

I sounded like a frog with Tuberculosis.

I sounded like the interference between channels (millennials wont get this)

Anyway, however you describe it precisely, I generally sounded like shit.

Now, because I usually sound so damn beautiful, this was a personal tragedy. Me losing my voice is like if you lost your feet, hands and knees. In other words: not cool.

So I’m not one hundred per cent back to the golden tone, but definitely I sound a lot more like me. It is a relief.

Anyway, blah blah, here is the music for the cheat on the music round at the Safari tonight:

Song includes the lyric “who gets the job… of pushing the knob?” which by itself is enough to count the song as a WIN.

The Stranglers will not be playing live at the quiz tonight. But come along anyway. £150 is no to be breezed at.

Sunday Edinburgh Pub Quizzes

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Guinea Pig (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Ashford & Simpson (music round)

Here is the music round cheat for the Tolbooth. I used to like this song when I was a kid:

The guy’s got loads of soul glow and swaggering soul-knits. And leather trousers. He looks a bit like Barry White but less fat.

I don’t know whatever happened to Ashford and Simpson. But They look like emotional people. I bet they were as deeply affected by the death of Harambe as any of us.

I think my voice is nearly back to normal. Wednesday and Thursday were horrible. Sorry if you chose to sit through that.

Thanks for the various wishes of recovery, but If you really are worried about my health, the quickest way to get me back to fitness is to buy a deck of Cunto cards.

Thanks for that!
