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

9pm – Damm 27. Jackpot £40. Cheat: Discobitch (music round)

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

Wednesday is the night that makes winners out of wimps, heroes out of the humdrum and omnipotent out of the ordinary.

The best places to achieve all this is at the Joker, Damm 27 and The Monkey. On a Wednesday night – tonight.

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.

Wednesday 29th May 2019

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Beverley Knight (music round)

9pm – Damm 27. Jackpot £40. Cheat: The Human League (music round)

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

Three quizzes tonight, each with the different flavour.

The Joker is one of the week’s most relaxed quizzes. Enter Roddy’s realm and order a pizza. It’s very satisfying.

Damm 27 is the stomp of new young quizmaster-of-tomorrow, Shawn. Regulars who have been to Shawn’s quiz describe him as very likeable.

The Monkey is just full of students and pissheads.

You choose.

Doesn’t matter which boozer you’re in when you’re winning.

So, here’s tonight’s free answer for the music round at Damm 27:

Nice bonus John Peel at the start of that video.

Meanwhile, here is the free answer for the music round at tonight’s quiz at the Joker:

It’s Beverley Knight who is one of those artists I get mixed up with Gabrielle or Alicia Keys or Tasmin Archer if they’re a question on Popmaster

I wonder why bands like this exist?

Speaking of Popmaster, I now supply dinky wee Popmaster notepads with which to take notes while playing the world’s greatest 10.30am-based radio music quiz.

Popmaster scorepad from dpquiz.co.uk

See you at the quiz tonight.

Tha bar at Damm 27

So, everything’s cool and we’ll see you tonight at one of the quizzes. Remember: WHO advice is to get out at least once a week. Midweek is a good time for this cos the weekend is just full of fannies and pricks.

Love,

Dr P

Monday 27th May 2019 – Massive jackpot at Safari tonight

Pub Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £210. Cheat news: Kilmarnock (pic round)

Get lucky! We’re talking about £210 at the Safari Lounge tonight. That’s enough to buy Fish Suppers for EVERYONE! For a week. Imagine the pleasure:

Image result for fish supper
The pleasure

To help you in the other quiz tonight: here is a music round clip which will be showing up at the Brass Monkey Leith. It’s your old pal, Prince:

The Cult, tearing up the mid-eighties

I’m of the age where Prince is really obvious. You know them all. It was the sonic wallpaper of youth bedrooms across the UK.

But younger people? I don’t tihnk they#re quite so sure about the Prince mega-hits.

That’s why I’m putting it as today’s cheat. You can’t always assume that people know the ‘obvious’

Image result for prince
Prince – been gone for a wee while now

Anyway, if Prince was alive tonight he’d undoubtedly be at the Safari Lounge.

If he didn’t win the jackpot himself he’d probably have sex with the person who did win the jackpot. That’s just the way it goes sometimes, especially with Prince.

Also: Dead Pool for June tonight. Don’t miss it.

See ya later – x

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Kanye West (music round)

It’s Sunday and I’m late out of bed. So this post is necessarily short and business-like. Pay attention:

First: here is the music round cheat answer for the Tolbooth Tavern tonight which is Kanye West:

Ol’ Kanye

I’ve never really liked Kanye West. I don’t get it. Change my mind, if you think otherwise.

Anyway, not much more from me except to say that can everyone please say a prayer for a continuation of dry throughout today as my washing got wet again last night after it was NEARLY dry.

you know what. I should have just taken it in anyway.

Yo!

It’s a pop song. But the guys have long hair so you have to say “pop-rock”

They spelled choir like quire. Geddit?

Monday 20th May 2019 – Quizzes TOnight

Pub Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £100. Cheat: The Wombles (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £180. Cheat news: Tales of The Unexpected (music round)

180 at darts

Big mad ton eighty jackpot at the SAFARI, tonight

And here is the cheat music round clue for tonight’s quiz at the Safari Lounge. It’s a TV themes round tonight and it includes this opener for an old show called Tales of The Unexpected which in the early 80s was about as close as you got to television nudity:

The Cult, tearing up the mid-eighties

Nowadays you can’t get through an advert for Jaffa Cakes without a bit of flesh. Probably.

It’s like a whorehouse of commerce. It’s an outrage. People should wear more clothes when they are broadcasting.

NB: this does not necessarily apply to Eurovision where you can wear anything you want:

Image result for tamta

So, the possibility of bondage-style body suits appearing tonight at either the Brass Monkey Leith or The Safari Lounge is a slim one, but you never know.

Don’t stop believing. Hang on to the feeling.

See ya later – x
