Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Mungo Jerry (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Skoda Fabia (pic round)

SO, it turned out last week that the Women’s World Cup did add to the numbers in the pub but not to the point where we had to cancel the quiz.

That’s kind of ideal.

If you come to the Percy tonight you’ll see the end of USA v Chile, in which the USA will pump goals past the South Americans like there’s no tomorrow and celebrating each and every one of them like the second coming.

Being a bad winner. Sometimes you just have to.

But let’s face it, you’re the same when you just keep getting answers right in the quiz.

We are built to celebrate. It’s natural.

Meanwhile, here is the music round cheat info which relates to the quiz at the Persevere tonight:

Pixies Fan Art Vid

It’s Mungo Jerry.

I always though this song contained an air of menace.

They talk about drink driving, they talk about just getting out there and doing whatever you want.

They sing “We’re not bad people – but we do as we please“.

Can you feel the danger?

Anyway, enjoy the World Cup, enjoy the quizzes. I hope you win the quiz and I hope we all live forever.

See you at the quiz tonight.

Yo!

Thoisdy The Thoiteenth of June*

*Today’s headline is a Brooklyn accent. It’s just the way it is.

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £120. Cheat answer: Chincilla(music round)

7.30pm – Ship Inn, Musselburgh. Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Supremes (music round)

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

It’s Thursday in Scotland, Thoisdy in Brooklyn but you’re here so I’ll speak standard from here on in.

Quizzes tonight: star jackpot is at the Argyle. It’s a hundred and twenty quid. Picture yourself in the kind of car you could buy for that money.

The High Life

Action and drama will also prevail in Musselburgh and down at the Newsroom.

Thursday. What a night.

Anyway: here’s the music round cheats. First for the Ship Inn quiz in Musselburgh, this essential slice of soul pop:

Proper

And secondly for the Newsroom, this stone cold eighties mega-banger:

According to the James Brown song, “everybody’s working oooooovertime”.

I kinda hope this isn’t the case tonight because it would be good to see you at the quiz and not stuck in the office.

Wednesday 11th June: Quiz Situations Tonight

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Damm 27. Jackpot £40. Cheat: Pan’s Labyrinth(pic round)

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

Kate Bush is one of the cheat answers for tonight’s quizzes.

But what is the meaning of Kate Bush?

As was often the case, Gungawins found the best expression of sentiment:

Image may contain: text

Here is the song which features at the Joker And The Thief (7pm):

It’s a fan made video (had a few of those recently) so there’s no story there. It’s later Kate Bush so you won’t automatically like it.

But you don’t need to like it, you just need to know it.

I tend to put things in the music round that I actually like but I try to shake myself out of this and keep adding variety. If there’s an artist who never ever seems to be in the music round and you’re sick of my choices, then let me know who I’m missing.

Anyway: another music round clue, this time for the Brass Monkey (9pm).

The Brass music round includes this one by Alicia Keys

There is not literally a girl on fire. It’s a metaphor.

Anyway, make sure your team is not on actual fire when you bring them to the boozer tonight.

Apart from upsetting health & safety it would be actually dangerous.

And I’m trying to get through this in one piece. Sometimes it’s all I ask.

Remember that if you want something classy, Damm 27 hosted by Shawn should be your option. Shawn’s from South Africa but you can understand what he’s saying, so it’s cool.

Monday 10th June 2019

Summertime and the quizzing is easy.

Pub Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Dannii Minogue (music round)

Well, the big pot went at the Safari last week, but in the meantime we’ve been building up nice £150 at the Brass Monkey Leith.

Here’s the music round cheat for the Safari tonight:

The Cult, tearing up the mid-eighties

That’s the other Minogue. The Paul Chuckle of the pop world.

That’s not meant to be an insult. Paul Chuckle is nearly as entertaining as Barry Chuckle in the same way the Kylie only just pips her sis to top spot.

It’s close, but there’s got to be a winner.

That’s life.

Come and experience this kind of razor-thin and totally-unfair winning margin tonight, at the quiz.

See ya later – x

Sunday 9th June 2019

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: The Pixies (music round)

Tonight, the quiz at the Persevere is competing with Scotland v England in the Women’s World Cup (kick-off 5pm).

And I’ll tell you: I have no idea how this is going to work out.

If this was the men’s world cup, the pub would be fairly busy.

If this was the men’s world cup and it was Scotland, the place would be stowed.

If this was the men’s world cup and it was Scotland v England, the Percy would be inaccessible due to bedlam and heavy drinking would have commenced more than two days ago. Some people would be in hospital. Pub security staff would be getting about fifty quid an hour. The chances of the quiz happening would be less than a fly’s chance of surviving being shagged by Gary Lineker.

But it’s the women’s world cup so this far less predictable. The Women’s World Cup ha a history of low interest from the public.

But then it is the first time Scotland have qualified for the women’s tournament, and it’s the first time Scotland have qualified for any World Cup tournament for over 20 years.

And there has been a bit more hype this time. And there’s a chance we could get it right up England who, as the BBC keep telling us, are far better than everyone else.

So you never know.

Anyway – my prediction is that the quiz WILL go ahead. Come and play.

Meanwhile, here’s the music round cheat answer for the Tolbooth Tavern tonight which is The Pixies:

Pixies Fan Art Vid

Love the Pixies. They never really made a lot of videos. This is by a fan and it’s what you would call impressionistic. Good though.

Anyway, enjoy the World Cup, enjoy the quizzes. I hope you win the quiz and I hope Scotland get it right up the so-called Lionesses.

England are favourites but sometimes you have to dare to dream, as we say in Eurovision.

Sometimes

Scotland in pink

Scotland aint so bad.

See you at the quiz tonight.

Thursday 6th June 2019

Quizzes Tonight in the great villages of Edinburgh and Musselburgh:

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

7.30pm – Ship Inn, Musselburgh. Jackpot £90. Cheat answer: Juggernaut (pic round)

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

Donald Trump has invaded France. You could invade France too if you won the money at just two quizzes tonight. Skyscanner says you can get to France tomorrow for £125.

Just a thought.

Anyway: here’s the music round cheat answer for tonight’s quiz at the Argyle which is the greatest singer of all time: Divine…

Effectively the best singer of all time.

I remember being young enough to be totally bewildered by what on earth Divine was or was supposed to be when s/he hit the charts in the 80s.

I get it now, but back then it took a wee while to understand what was going on. Ah. Youth.

Just a note: Musselburgh has cheaper housing and presumably cheaper booze than Edinburgh so if you’re working on a strictly cost-to-winnings ratio, The Ship Inn might be the choice tonight. Kerry’s running the show there and doing a great job. Go and see!

Ship Champs

As a wee boost, here’s tonight’s free answer for the music round at Damm 27:

This was the ONLY single released by Discobitch. It was number two in France and Belgium.

The singer is called Pauline Sampeur and I can’t find too much more about her in a cursory search.

Maybe she works in accounts now. Nae idea.

Anyway, bring a team and see you at the quiz. It’s always better with a team.

A nice team of winners at the Joker

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.

OM3 - NIKOLA TESLA - T-Shirt PHYSICS POWER NERD ELEKTRIC GEEK ENERGIE EMO, M, khaki

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

Sunday 2nd June 2019

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Hamster (pic round)

Okay everybody. It’s Sunday. Once you’re done worshipping (applies to Christians) , get yourself dressed and head to the quiz.

You will be rewarded with an interactive brain-based activity, plus banter with your team and possibly a neck full of booze.

Hell,. if you come to the Percy you can even order food… which always seems to go down well.

To give you a wee hand, here’s the music round cheat answer for the Persevere tonight which is Whitney Houston:

Soft and smooth

Not bad. Was a never a huge Whitney fan but I like this one. It’s understated, very cool.

Anyway, there’s nothing else significant for me to say except that it’s worth remembering the average daily high temperature in Ouagadougou (the capital of Burkina Faso) is around 35 degrees and, frankly, that’s too much.

Sometimes Scotland aint so bad.
