Sunday Quiz Action

Get yourself down Leith or up the town. Either way, you WILL have a GREAT time.

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: The Coral are in the music round. See video below to hear the tune.

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot £90. Cheat: There is an image of Julianne Moore nested in the picture round. To be honest, she’s not as famous as she used to be.

The Coral were from Liverpool. Being from Liverpool goes in cycles of being trendy and the Coral made it so in the early 2000s.

Great song, totally timeless and I’d never seen the video before. It has  a fighting bear in it.

Thursday Quizzes Tonight

Edinburgh rocks and resonates to the quiz beat. Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (And Cellar). Jackpot: £60. Cheat: There is someone called Jordin Sparks in the musi round. Have a look at the video posted below to hear the tune.

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £250. Cheat: The picture round tonight includes Mark Ronson.

The song is from 2009 so there are loads of children commenting on youtube, getting nostalgic about that fact.

They whoop and say things like “If you’re still listening in 2017…whoo!”.

Youtube comments like this are dumb but at least they are not calling each other “faggots” and threatening personal violence as seems to be case on most youtube instances.

Wednesday Quiz Action at Joker on Elm Row and Monkey up town

Midweek wishes. I wish, I wish, I wish I could win the quiz for the booze and the jackpot of the money. Please, Jesus.

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Venice appears in the picture round.

9pm – The Brass Monkey (Drummond Street) Jackpot: £90. Cheat: The Manic Street Preachers are singing in the music round. You can hear the tune on the video posted below.

It’s from the early career of the Manics, before one of them, Richey Edwards – aka Richey James, disappeared.

It’s been a while and you don’t hear a lot of people talking about Richey Manic any more.

In fact, having disappeared in 1995 he was declared legally dead in 2008.

Monday Trauma

There could be trauma. One wrong answer…

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: a whopping £200. Cheat: Cary Grant is in the pic round.

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot: £30 for you. Cheat: Music round includes the sensational Westlife, see vid below:

Westlife are so great.

They are like bears. White bears in the forest that run, run, run for twigs.

When one of them returns to base with twigs, he tags another Westlife White Bear and that bear runs off into the forest for more twigs.

Big twigs. Fallen branches, even.

Using this tag-team approach, Westlife White Bears build the biggest bonfire in history.

When its ready, they light it and cook a human at the top, a bad human.

We don’t know the name of the human but we know they are bad and we know they burn real good.

Westlife: Not for the under-fives.

Sunday Dreaming

It’s Sunday so need tae get down Leith or up the Canongate

Persevere – 6pm. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: The music round includes Strawberry Switchblade. See the vid below from TOTP 84

Tolbooth Tavern – 8pm. Jackpot £30. Cheat: The picture round includes your old pal Joni Mitchell

By the way, don’t bother reading the youtube comments for this one. It’s mainly “men” wondering whether or not the guitar is plugged in, whether the girl can actually play it, etc.

Standard stupid sexist shite. My recommendation is that if you find yourlsef accidentally making online comments like this one day, then stop.
