Tonight’s Quizzes – Thu 18th Oct 2018

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Kristen (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £100. Cheat answer: The Human League (pic round)

Come to the pub. Only FOOLS stay indoors when Thursday offers itself like an easy platter, like a buffet breakfast in a decent European hotel, full of dark breads and mysterious cheeses and cereal and brioche and cold meats and all of that.

Here are your Thursday choices:

Argyle – Middle class Marchmont Bohemia in a basement.

Newsroom – Uptown glamour, but not the exclusive sort.

The cheat music for tonight is for the Newsroom. This is early Human League – Phil being Phil, which is to say: terrific…

One of the youtube comments remarks that listening to this song on headphones in the dark is like being trapped inside a computer.

Nice.

Anyway – I’ll see you at the quiz. I’ll be the specky one with the suit jacket and the quiz questions. I don’t just have to be the asker though, you can ask me anything.

POLITICS THURSDAY

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

This week’s point: elections are fucking stupid.

Love,

Dr Paul

Wednesday Quizzes – 17th Oct 2018

Quizzes tonight: Come out and feel what others feel.

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

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

Pots got won last week, so minimum payout tonight but it’s nights like these that have the cosy atmosphere because there’s not a jackpot large enough to cause a fight or a barney.

Here’s the music round cheat for tonight at the Monkey, it is, perhaps, the funniest rock video of the 80s:

I still think of Twisted Sister and singer Dee Snider whenever I see women in the pub with hair like that.

And the most likely Dr Paul to see hair of this style? The Newsroom on Thursday night. Usually teachers on the piss.

Hey hey hey!

Best places for a pub quiz? from Edinburgh

##########################

Remember: tonight’s pub quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double (and people do).

First one at the Brass Leith finishes at 8.30pm and the second one at the Safari Lounge begins at 9pm (although I don’t usually hit the first question until about 10 past or quarter past)

I might be on the bike tonight but if I’m getting a taxi  I’m always happy to give you a lift between the two places. Free of charge!

Sunday: Persevere and Tolbooth Tavern

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Sistine Chapel (pic round)

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

I was at the museum last week doing the Rip It Up quiz with Phill Jupitus. Good gig but I love my regulars so I’ve sent the Prof back to Australia and I am back on questions and answers tonight.

Here’s the music round cheat for tonight which pertains to the Tolbooth:

Well, a “stripped down version” in any case which means it doesn’t sound much like the actual recorded version of the song. Consider it an extra challenge to match the video with what you’ll hear in the music round tonight.

Anyway – remember to bring your mum tonight! It’s nowhere near mother’s day or anything like that – you should just take her to the quiz. She probably deserves it.

Yeah.

Thursday Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Bon Jovi (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Little Miss Chatterbox (pic round)

Thursday is two entirely different quizzes.

One in a saucy Marchmont basement full of middle-class slum-glamour and Danish postgrads,

The other is an uptown Ikea Wonderland with a bronzed mix of professions and attitudes.

The cheat music for tonight is for the Argyle. This was a hit in 2005. The video features the director’s idea of a viral marketing campaign and the hollowness echoes around the finished piece like an stone age blowhorn from one million years BC.

It’s not just me is it? Like Bon Jovi are shite, eh? (Apart from ‘Livin On A Prayer’ – obvs)

This song, however, is a pure brooner.

Chef’s recommendation: don’t listen to it.

Meanwhile: I don’t back HS2 and I just want to make that clear now so that, in years to come, everyone will link back to this blogpost and say – Hey…. the Doc knew.

It’s a waste of money and by the time it’s built it will all be hyperloops and maglevs. Total nonsense likes.

Anyway, come to the quiz. I’ll see you there.

Love,

Dr Paul

Wednesday Night Quizzes Tonight In Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight: Come out and play.

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £120. Cheat: Jermaine Stewart (music round)

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

Nice pot at the Joker tonight – we’ve squeezed over the £100 mark. Come and win it. Come and smell Elm Row. It’s very pleasant.

The music round clue for tonight is for the Joker and it’s this song:

This was a straight-up, for-real, proper, genuine eighties classic. No disco was without this song in 1986. The sound, the groove. Cannae beat it.

Also, the song must be one of the few chart hits in history to reference cherry wine.

Can you even get cherry wine? Actually – you can. I found it in one search on drinksupermarket.com

I’m not going to order any, mind. It looks shite.

Anyway, come to the pub tonight. We have excellent booze at both pubs. See you tonight…

Yo!

Monday, Like A Smack To The Pus

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

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

Hey! Rollovers have been a bit thin on the ground at the Brass Monkey Leith during August and September, so tonight is the first time we’ve hit £150 at that lovely boozer since June.

Celebrate this landmark by coming down and winning the money. Also, there is a rollover at the Safari which is “only” £60. OMG. First World Problems.

Anyway – to help you win at the Safarin here’s the Music round cheat:

Oh yes. This is the tune. One of my favourites of 87/88 and one of the first tunes where I realised that pop music was more about dance than poetry.

Proper No, so it is. The piano = mmmmm,

Thanks to everyone who supported the PROF last night while I was engaged in a large quiz at the National Museum on Chambers Street. Sounded like it went well.

By the way if you use reddit at all – check out this post and tell ’em!

Quizzes Tonight

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Haysi Fantayzee (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Dan Dare (pic round)

Tonight’s quizzes are the usual hot ticket. But also: I won’t be there. The Doc is elsewhere tonight so THE PROF is on the mic.

Watch out for the Prof!

Anyway, here’s the music round cheat for tonight’s quiz at the Percy: – it’s a bit of a one-hit wonder from the mid eighties and it’s about John Wayne apparently having a large penis.

Speckled hen just stop your squawking, big bad rooster’s doing the talking.

That’s one of the lyrics. It’s great.

I’ll be back on the quiz mic tomorrow night.

Yeah.

Thursday Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £90. Cheat answer: Sri Lanka (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £100. Cheat answer: Las Ketchup (music round)

Come to the quiz. You will love it.

The cheat music for tonight is for the Newsroom. This was a mega summer pop sensation hit in 2002.

They are called Las Ketchup and they are the daughters of a flamenco guitarist known as” El Tomate” – the tomato.

So he is the tomato and they are the sauce of the tomato. Right, OK.

The song was their only hit. After it went away they went back to their lives. Now that pop music is over sixty years old, this has happened quite a lot. In fact there are ex pop-stars everywhere.

Have you been on the bus today? You probably shared the ride with someone who was number one in 1974.

Anyway, come to the quiz. I’ll see you there.

Love,

Dr Paul

Wednesday Quiz Action In Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight: Come out and play.

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £90. Cheat: Beech (pic round)

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

Wednesday is the best. You know it’s true. Oh yeah.

Anyway: here’s the music clue for tonight’s quiz at the Joker & The Thief. It is silly punky pop by the bloke who ended up doing the Crystal Maze after Richard O’Brien

The song stirs emotions. On the youtube comments people say things like:

“This should be the national anthem for England… If England was still England”.

Half of the comments mention Brexit and how terrific things are going to be once the “nation becomes a nation” again.

Well, probably not – but you never know!

Anyway – Brexit or no Brexit – you can win a total of £150 at tonight’s quizzes. Why go anywhere else?

Yo!
