Mon 17th Dec – Quizzes Tonight In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £90. Cheat news: The Isle of Wight (pic round)

Tonight’s quizzes are the last Monday quizzes before Christmas. I’ll be off next Monday (Christmas Eve)

The Monday after that is Hogmanay and I will only be doing the Brass Monkey Leith and the quiz will be earlier. (5pm).

This is because at this time most of you will NOT be out of your boxes on booze; the quiz will still be possible.

Anyway, that’s next week. Now, here’s the reward for reading this post:  a free answer for tonight’s music round at the Brass Monkey Leith.

Ahh, it’s Blanche fae Belgium. A few commentators had her down as favourite for the Eurovision in 2017. The song is cool and modern. But the consensus was that her performance let the song down.

In the end it finished fourth. Fair play

Thu 13th Dec, Pub Quiz Action in Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Gone With The Wind  (pic round)

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

The free answer for the music round at the Newsy tonight is Major Lazer I had to look them up but apparently they are a dance music trio from the USA. Fine. The song “features” Justin Bieber, so presumably that’s him doing the singing?

They sound like this:

Well, I just skipped through that and it is possibly one of the most meaningless videos I’ve ever viewed. But it includes Greek Islands, so it’s all right by me.

POLITICS THURSDAY

By the way- Thursday is now the day when I express my opinion on the crazy world of politics

This week’s point: FEMALE LEADERS ARE A GOOD THING.

All politics is a lie, but at least when the leader is female, my daughter (who is nearly 9 years old) can see that women can be at the top.

So, actual politics aside, I’d rather have a female country-boss and I wasn’t too dismayed to see Theresa May survive yesterday.

Even if she is a sneaky scrote and a savage Tory bastard of the first rank.

Disagree? Come and argue with me at the quiz.

Wednesday 12th Dec 2018 – Pub Quizzes Tonight in Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Ra Ra Rasputin by Boney M (pic round)

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

Christmas. What is it good for, absolutely nothing. Say it again.

Make sure you combat the season of woe by getting pished. And if you’re going to get pished then you might as well do it in the pub where all your friends are drinking too and so it is better.

And if you’re going to get pished in the pub then you may as well do it when the pub quiz is on so you can win MORE BOOZE or indeed money which you can spend on EVEN MORE BOOZE.

It’s a beautiful circle of life, as Elton John so rightly pointed out.

I really am blethering today. Here’s tonight’s music round cheat clue which is for the Brass Monkey on Drummond Street:

Bis are a brilliant Glasgow band. In fact, I’m sure one of them used to come to the quiz when I was based in the G. I could be wrong.

Twenty years later, they’re still on tour – you can follow them on Twitter

And this is what they look like now:

bis

Anyway, Bis are great but come to the quiz and we’ll all live happily ever after.

Mon 10th December – Quizzes Tonight In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

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

Monday smells and it smells like victory.

Come to the quiz.

Now, here’s the reward for reading this post:  a free answer for tonight’s music round at the Safari Lounge.

I haven’t listened more than once or twice but I think there’s not much lyrical content: I think it’s about going out and getting wasted.

Music in it is excellent though, even though it is “very modern” in my book.

Not that modern, however, it you iz youtz.

The youtube comments are full of young people saying things like  “whooooooooaaaa – I can’t believe this is five years old”. and “I feel so old” and “music isn’t like this anymore”.

Fuck off kids, I’m old enough to remember Mike Read banning ‘Relax’ while simultaneously giving Bruno Brookes a rather hypocritical reach-around and calling Matt Bianco wankers, live on Swap Shop.

That’s real nostalgia.

Sunday 9th December – Quizzes Tonight

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Shakespeare’s Sister (music round)

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

Internet problems today, hence the late post and email. Apologies.

Keeping it brief in case it goes down again, so here is the video for tonight’s music round free answer which relates to the Persevere quiz at 6pm:

This was a monster hit back in the day. Couldn’t move for it. People were seemingly amazed that someone out of Bananarama could do something “dark”.

Still a good song, and a memorable video. The woman who isn’t the Bananarama woman was called Marcella Detroit. I like her hair.

Yeah.

Thursday Night Pub Quiz Action

Quizzes Tonight:

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

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

The free answer for the music round at the Argyle tonight is Mister Iggy Pop who, as many have pointed out, you can’t beat.

Anyway, nice doomy tune with a Balkan flavour:

POLITICS THURSDAY

By the way- Thursday is now the day when I express my opinion on the crazy world of politics

This week’s point: REFERENDUMS SHOULD BE DECISIVE.

SIMPLE point but if anyone’s planning another referendum on anything can we agree to make it at least 60/40, preferably 66/33 result required for a change.

Anything less is a razor’s-edge territory, and guarantee of lingering enmity and division.

Obviously that’s too late to stop the current shithouse. It’s disappointing that no one back in 2016 advocated for a two-thirds or 60/40 majority.

Ah well,. whatcha gonna do?

Disagree? Come and argue with me at the quiz.

Wednesday 5th Dec – Quizzes Tonight In Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £60 Cheat: Myanmar (pic round)

It’s midweek in December, the month that’s dominated by Christmas. All I’m saying about Christmas is don’t miss out on Cunto Cards – the only gift that’s guaranteed to raise a laugh this year

Cunto Cards
Cunto Cards. Utterly hilarious. Twelve pounds.

Anyway, Cunto is just the sideline. The main business here is pub quiz and tonight we have NICE QUIZ for you.

Here’s the tune that’s my free answer for the music round at the Joker tonight. It’s eighties Scousers, OMD:

I always thought the singer out of OMD looked like John Collins who used to play for Hibs and Celtic.

Whaddya reckon?

I hope you like that. It took over ten minutes.

Anyway, come to the quiz and we’ll all live happily ever after.

Mon 3rd Dec – Quizzes Tonight In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

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

It’s December and its Monday. This is more depressing that being forced to crush four hundred snails to death, one after the other, to death, in a vice.

The only cure is to come to the quiz.

Now, here is the free answer for tonight’s Music round at the Brass Monkey Leith.

It’s an old eighties number, very dramatic and emotional and soft rock style.

For thirty years I thought Cutting Crew were from Northern Ireland but just looked them up on Wiki and it seems they are from the South of England.

I wonder where I got my misconception? I was probably listening to Gary Davies or Peter Powell or one of these wanks on Radio 1 back in 1986 and they said something and I misheard it as “Cutting Crew are from Northern Ireland”.

What did the DJ really say? Probably said something like “Maggie Thatcher is Great. Fuck the miners” cos they were all solid Tories back in those days.

Sun 2nd Dec – Sunday Night Quizzing In Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Ingrid Michaelson (music round)

Sunday is here. December is here.  In between decorating the turkey and sending telegrams to the Queen, you should fit in  a visit to the pub quiz. The quiz, unlike your ex, is always here for you.

Meanwhile, here is the video for tonight’s music round free answer which relates to the Tolbooth Tavern quiz at 8pm:

I don’t know much about Ingrid Michaelson but I like the tune and the video is entertaining too: a back-to-front tribute to an old Robert Palmer vid from the eighties.

Palmer used to get stick for his videos being “sexist”. Thirty years later this vid turns it round. Nice work.

Anyway, see you at the quiz tonight and don’t forget: just cos its December, I aint going to be wearing tinsel or any of that hoo-hah. Calm down. It’s only Dec 2nd.

Yeah.
