Wednesday Pub Quiz – Crying Gets You Nowhere

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Rufus Wainwright (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £60 Cheat: No Doubt (music round)

This time last week, England could still win the world cup. Today all we have is pub quiz team names like this:

Gareth Southgate's Tear Stained Waistcoat
Gareth Southgate’s Tear Stained Waistcoat

Crying gets you nowhere.

This also applies to protest. Last weekend’s anti-Trump stuff may have been amusing in a rattle-your-jewellery kind of a way, but it was essentially bleating.

Note to demonstrators – No one will take your protest seriously unless you smash things up. Making puns = zero change.

This has nothing to do with the quiz, it’s just my tuppenceworth.

More related to your chances of quiz success: here is a clip from tonight’s music round at the Brass Monkey Drummond Street:

I’ve heard this so many times that it gets samey, but just watching the video reminds me what a good song it is.

I remember when it came out, it was number one for ninety weeks and everyone was talking about how it was a breakup song between singer Gwen Stefani and the bass player. Pure Fleetwood Mac.

Anyway, world cup is over and No Doubt was the nineties. Come and experience modern times in the pub tonight. With the quiz

And, if you’re looking for the kind of foul-mouthed treat that only a theraputic hit like Cunto Cards can provide, I will have a couple of decks with me tonight. Stop me and buy one…

Monday Super Duper Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

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

The music round tune tonight is my favourite Eurovision from the last three years. It’s Bulgaria’s Poli Genova and we saw it live in Stockholm at the ESC in 2016. The place went mad – it’s a dance banger:

 

Monday night is the first night after the terror of the World Cup has lifted like a fog.

Celebrate by leaving the house and meeting real people in a real pub and playing the real quiz for real money.

Sunday Quiz

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £150. Cheat: Jesus Christ Superstar (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Fine Young Cannibals (music round)

The music round cheat for the Persevere is a big hit from the 80s. No one had a voice like Roland Gift.

It still bangs.

World Cup

I’m personally pleased that England are NOT in the final. Not from a petty shit-hate point of view, but more for the fact that the pub (the Persevere) will largely be neutral this afternoon, which is usually a better atmosphere.

My only wish for the final this afternoon is that it concludes in normal time. If so then the quiz will go ahead as usual at 6pm.

If it goes to extra time we may have to start a little later, but either way there WILL be a quiz.

The quiz at the Tolbooth is unaffected.

Yo!

Thursday – Biggest Jackpot for Ages

Quizzes Tonight:

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

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £250. Cheat answer: Jean-Michel Jarre (music round)

Tonight’s quiz at The Newsroom provides the biggest jackpot I’ve had for a while. £250.

It’s a quarter of a grand!

Here’s the music round cheat for the Newsroom:

The drum machine sound is awesome. The whole thing is so French. I think this is a sign that France are going to win the world cup.

How the hell is me posting a video of a 40-year old synth piece a “sign”? I don’t know either but it makes as much sense as some of the other cleromancy that goes on. One immediately thinks of Paul the Octopus in 2010, David Hasselhoff’s dogs at the last world cup and now Bill Bailey has his ducks of destiny…

What a load of shite.

What’s NOT a load of shite is that you can win a big bucket of money tonight. Come to the quiz!

Wednesday Quizzes Only Half Disrupted by England football

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: Ra (pic round)

The England football team (men’s) have played themselves into a World Cup semi final and it’s on at the same time as the Joker quiz tonight.

For some of you, this won’t matter at all, but for others it’sa big big deal.

If it’s a big big deal then you probably don’t want to come to the quiz. We’ll have it on the tellies but with the sound down and the quiz going ahead.

So if you really need to hear those bigoted, biased commentators then we’re not the pub for you.

As far as everything else, tonight is a normal Wednesday.

Here’s a sneak look at one of the music round answers for the Joker & The Thief tonight:

It’s the Minds, daein’ Minds things. Sexy.

Reading the comments on every single video featuring early Simple Minds is the same. People saying “whoooaaar – they used to be really good before they became stadium shite.”

I can see what they mean but I still liked ‘Ghostdancing‘ when it came out.

Monday Satisfaction

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

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

No football to ruin everything tonight, so let’s take this moment to feel our good selves right and release the inner trivia god that lurks within us all.

The music round at the Safari tonight includes this all time glam bang:

There is nothing as good as Roxy Music. They are the greatest band of all. Apart from maybe Queen or ABBA. But you know what I mean.

The full version of the song is worth watching. They really go for it.

Sunday Quiz – Top Jackpot Tonight is £120

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Dinosaur Jr. (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Depeche Mode (music round)

The music round cheat for the Persevere is a fairly obscure one. Unless you’re my age. And into the kind of stuff I was into then, specifically, at that time. So it’s probably quite a good one to give you as a cheat.

Video is home made:

Next week’s Sunday quiz at the Percy may be slightly affected by the World Cup Final but hopefully not.

Kick off is 4pm so if it runs to 90mins then we’ll be OK. If there’s extra time we might start slightly late.

Tolbooth will be unaffected.

So let’s hope Belgium pump Croatia in normal time.

Speaking of football, did you know that the Hibs season starts today? Outrageous. Some kind of testimonial apparently.

Of course, the real season doesn’t quite start yet. The first tie in the Scottish League Cup is not until Wednesday night.

Come to the quiz.

Yo!

This Is Thursday. It’s Time To Quiz It

Quizzes Tonight:

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

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £200. Cheat answer: Malta (pic round)

The Newsroom provides the biggest jackpot of the Dr Paul week tonight: £200 up for grabs.

The Newsroom was dead last week – so come and capitalize on the summer vibe and win DA MONEY

Here’s the music round cheat for the Argyle Bar:

It’s Aaliyah who died at the age of 22 in  plane crash in the Bahamas.

Disaster.

If she had lived she could have been a judge on X-Factor or something.

The song is good – like a cross between Janet Jackson and TLC. The Bass moves everywhere and, listening to it now, I just noticed that it references I Know You Got soul by Erik B & Rakim – proper old school.

The video is also very Janet Jackson with lots of co-ordinated movements between dancers, all in some kind of showroom for garden water features (night theme).

For dying so young, Aaliyah properly left her mark.

Wiki says ” She is listed by Billboard as the tenth most successful female R&B artist of the past 25 years and 27th most successful R&B artist in history“.

Not bad. Just a shame about the airplane crash. She’s in good company though.

No World Cup – Come To The Quiz

Quizzes tonight:

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

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

The World Cup is great and everything but it goes on a bit. Thankfully there is a couple of days break so we can get on with our lives in the interim.

And by “get on without lives” I mean – come to the quiz.

£60 and £150 are the prizes tonight. Here’s a sneak look at one of the music round answers for the Brass Monkey (Drummond Street) tonight:

The song is trying hard to be provocative, different and original and controversial but music-wise it’s poor. I’d rather listen to Queen or James Last.

I just read her Wikipedia page to try and find something nice to say about her as balance but to be honest its mainly a litany of minor rows.

Let’s talk about Holland instead.

The correct term is ‘The Netherlands‘ although, in a pub quiz setting, your quizmaster should usually accept ‘Holland‘ as a perfectly acceptable alternative answer.

The point is that he should know what you meant.

This is the case at Dr Paul quiz. If you spell something wrong or get something slightly wrong but I know what you meant, you’ll usually get the points. (See rules)

It is my humble effort not to be a cunt.

Sometimes we all fail.
