Crazy Martin’s Money Is Still In The Pot

Wild boss “Crazy Martin” lobbed an extra £90 in the Strathie pub quiz jackpot last week but it was NOT WON and it means tonight’s jackpot has soared to a frankly unsustainable £210.

Be the one who wins it tonight. Quiz at 7pm!

Cheat Clues

Here is the cheat clue for tonight’s music round at the Strathie. It’s La Bionda who are a pair of Italian brothers who felt very nice, very disco in the 70s and 80s.

The video tells the story of what will happen when Italy gets round to having a space program (their sex-mad astronauts will easily be seduced by weird alien lady-ghosts)

Italians conquers space but are immediately seduced by aliens

It’s like an episode of Star Trek but with better music and more honest. If Captain Kirk really did go for all those space-women, it would be sure to wrong pretty quickly but he always wins, that’s the American way.

In this video, the heroes are defeated straight away, lured by the promise of intergalactic sex. This human frailty is realized and honestly documented. This is the European way.

Opportunity smells like Leith.

Opportunity smells like £210

Be there tonight!

Monday 3rd June

It’s the third of June and I bring you quizzes with vast jackpots that can change (temporarily) your life.

Pub Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £100. Cheat: OMD(music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £240. Cheat news: Orchid(pic round)

Tonight’s music round cheat is for the Brass Monkey Leith and is a dirty old banger by OMD. Watch the video to hear the tune:

The Cult, tearing up the mid-eighties

The song includes some great lyrics.

Tesla girls, Tesla girls,
Testing out theories,
Electric chairs and dynamos,
Dressed to kill, they're killing me

Great stuff. In true pop lyric style, the song doesn’t mean much on its own. It just makes you feel.

It makes you feel: technology, electricity, future, ladies. Kinda like Roxy Music, but more laboratory and less singles bar.


Anyway – that’s at the Brass on Sunny/rainy Leith Walk.

The big big money is at the Safari tonight where many teams got bust last week and the rollover grew unexpectedly to a mighty £240.

For that you could get a car. Probably.

Anyway, See ya later – x

Thu Nov 8 – Quizzes Tonight

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: “Bombay Bicycle Club” (music round)

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

So, Halloween’s just out the way but just when you think there’s a bit of clear water and a bit of blue sky, there’s Hugo in the Monkey

Hugo only appears in Edinburgh when there’s big events work to be done, we saw him a few months ago when it was the festival.

“All right Hugo – to what do we owe the pleasure? Why are you in town?”


Aaaaaaaagggggh. Bastards. Can someone organise a movement to cancel Christmas? I’ll sign the petition.

Anyway, here’s the music round cheat for tonight which is for the Argyle Bar:

Bombay Bicycle Club? Not my cup of tea. A bit Lib-Dem, a bit of a bed-wetter tendency.


Incidentally – Thursday is now the day when I express my political opinion on this blog.


Are you Leave or Remain?

Poppy or No Poppy?

Cybernat or Onionist?

Liberal or Racist?

These simplistic 50/50s seem to be everywhere these days and while people expend their political energy working out what camp their in and then shouting at the other camp, any ideas to actually fix things get forgotten and dusty.

As the population rips itself to bits with thrashing right/wrong arguments in the simplest possible terms (which go nowhere), the elites continue to stockpile money, power, and the means to survive when the flood comes.

The rest of us will drown and will still be arguing the meaning of Brexit as Britain itself disappears beneath narwhals.

Maybe we should accept whatever poppy someone is wearing or not wearing and get back to destroying the privilege of the wealthy.

Monday Night – Last Big Jackpot Standing

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£300. Cheat: George Harrison (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £240. Cheat news: Saffron (pic round)

Last Monday was a red-letter day for Luiz Araujo, who have been teetering on the brink of greatness for several months.

After a string of bad fortune on other weeks, their persistence paid off and they bagged £240 last Monday at the Safari. It was a great moment:

Earlier on in the evening, no one managed to nail down to Brass Monkey Leith jackpot, so from a pool of recent large jackpots, tonight is the last one remaining intact.

Come and win £300 tonight. Yes: three hundred pounds.

Here’s the cheat info: a music clip from the music round at Brass Monkey Leith tonight…

It’s George Harrison of The Beatles doing a solo number. I don’t usually go for stuff that’s overtly ‘nice’ but there’s a something about the song. It’s a good ‘un.

By the way, my side project is CUNTO. It’s amazing and you can buy a pack now.


Who’s in the deck? Russell Brand and 41 other complete Cuntos. That’s who.
