Huge Jackpot Tonight (Brass Monkey Leith)

All right. Helmets on. We’ve hit three hundred.

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith – Jackpot £300. Cheat: Picture round has a Chinstrap Penguin.

9pm – The Safari Lounge – Jackpot £30. Cheat: Music round contains The Flying Lizards. You’ll know the song (see vid below)

Everyone knows the song but I didn’t realise there was a video for it. I love youtube.

Of course, the best thing about youtube is the comments where everyone is mad. Here are just a few comments, just from this video:

======================================================
I’m shocked to see that the singer is a white lady. I always thought she sounded like an asian woman.
======================================================
Could be the voice of Melania Trump?
No, Melania has more raspy sound due to all the cum in her throat.
+MrSKIN my Dick could never go near a dudes ass or month dude. that just isn’t the only reason you’re gay trust me. the reason you’re gay is probably because YOU ARE GAY!

Sunday Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh Tonight

Davy won the Percy jackpot last week. Meanwhile The Tollbooth jackpot stands and grows:

6pm – The Persevere – Jackpot £30. Cheat: Pato Banton is in the music round (see vid below)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern – Jackpot £150. Cheat: The pic round includes Droopy.

Droopy (pic round clue) is a standup guy. He’s laconic until he gets mad. Then he thrashes the living claptrap out of whoever is doing him wrong.

He’s a hurricane of physical power, but with a long fuse.

He will beat you to a cream pulp. He’s Droopy and you need to watch his moves. Some dog. Some kickback.

Thirsty Thursday? Get Pished. Win Hard.

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (And Cellar) – Jackpot £90. Cheat: Pic round includes Moulin Rouge

9pm – The Newsroom – Jackpot £50. Cheat: Music round includes Embrace (see vid below).

I don’t get “Embrace”. For starters it’s a poor name for a band. If you’re going for seven-letters, if that’s what you really really want then there are loads better things to name your band.

For example:

  1. Genesis
  2. Madness
  3. Man O War
  4. Level 42
  5. Caravan
  6. Cola Boy
  7. The Fall

    AND – all seven of them are better Embrace. So stick it up your arse Embrace. You’re at best the eighth-best seven-letter act in pop.

A Chance To Better Yourself

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

9pm – Brass Monkey (Drummond Street) – Jackpot £30 – Cheat: Paul McCartney is in the music round.

It’s not just about winning the quiz and drinking booze and meeting an urban sex partner. The quiz is also a chance to BETTER yourself.

Knowledge maketh the man. Manners are neither here nor there. What’s for you won’t go by you.

Quarter of a Grand – Tonight!

We’re hitting big numbers again at the Brass Monkey LEith. £250 jackpot tonight. That’s a “wow”.

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £250. Cheat: The incredible Black Lace are in the music round. Sadly not their greatest work “Gang Bang” but still a party favourite. Check the video to the 1980s birthday party shcool disco action and hear the song.

9pm – The Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat: The picture round this week includes the answer “Macbeth“.

Black Lace were one of the cultural motifs that defined the working class experience of the 1980s.

They are from the same bargain bucket as Findus crispy pancakes, Ford Fiestas, Bullseye with Jim Bowen on Sundays, Bruno Brookes doing the charts on Tuesdays, holidays at Butlins and stonewash jeans.

What a load of shite, a beautiful load of old shite.

Feeling nostalgic!

Tell you what though, if you win £250 tonight at the quiz and then travel through time to 1984 (the time of the Conga), you’ll be the king of all humans.

Having £250 in those days made you GOD. Fact!

Mind you, that’s from the perspective of a 12 year old. Maybe it wasn’t that much if you were working.

Sunday Best

Are you wearing fashion to the quiz tonight? Or just clothes? Not that it matters. I won’t judge. It would be nice thought, wouldn’t it, if everyone turned up with smart clothes on now and again. Ooooh.

Sunday – 6pm, The Persevere. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: There is a band named Bombay BIcycle Club  in the music round. It’s a load of hipster shite but some of you young ones might like ’em. See video below to hear the song and giver yourself a wee edge in one of the rounds.

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot £120. Cheat: One of the answers in the picture round is an old film called “Be Cool

I’m looking forward to tonight, it’s the first time for ages that the Sunday jackpots have both been over £100 on the same night.

You know you can get a number 35 bus directly from the Percy quiz to the Tolbooth quiz and get there in plenty of time?

Amaze! Gosh! That’s what I do some weeks when I’m not cycling…

Biggest Edinburgh Pub Quiz Jackpot Tonight Is In Marchmont

Which is unusual, because the Newsroom give us £50 a week and the ARgyle only £30 so it’s usually the city centre venue which is ahead but tonight… it’s the other way round:

7pm – Argyle Bar (And Cellar). Jackpot: £60, Cheat: There’s a music round track by PJ Harvey. Have a look at the video below to hear the song. It’s a great song. Strident.

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot: £50. Cheat: One of the answers in the picture round is “Morocco”.

The Newsroom might have a lower jackpot tonight but it will almost certainly have a higher glamour factor.

Sometimes there’s so much glamour in that place, you can’t breathe. Maybe it’s the excitement of being with the beautiful people. Maybe it’s diminished air quality on account of the fake tan continual released into the atmosphere.

Who knows?

Come Out To The Quiz And Feel What It Feels Like To Be A Winner

The great thing about winning the quiz is that, thanks to digital technology, the moment will visually live for ever, even if the feeling itself wears off after a week.

Most winners do get a week out of it though, so even that’s cool. Here are your opportunities for tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot: £30, Cheat: One of the music round bits is by Chase & Status. See the video below to hear the tune.

9pm – The Brass Monkey (Drummond Street). Jackpot: £60, Cheat: One of the answers in the picture round is “Beech“. Aye, as in the tree.

By the way – a jackpot of £30 at the Joker sounds a bit shite, but believe me, it’s a price that can still make people happy:

Happy as anything
Happy as anything

Great Big Jackpot Tonight

Any time we go £200 or more, I’d consider that a great jackpot. Your views may differ. I don’t know.

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot £200. Cheat: One of the answers in the picture round is Gone With The Wind.

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Them music round includes The New York Dolls who were, apparently Morrissey’s favourite band at one time. I only know a couple of their tunes but they rock. Reminds me a little of the Cramps, but with a more glam sound.

I just looked up the singer and am slightly surprised to discover he’s a 70s punk rock star who is still alive. Nice work, David Johansen.

Sunday Quiz Service In The Great Village of Edinburgh

Edinburgh’s like a daft wee village and we’re all pals and we all know each other. Come and meet everyone tongiht at the quizzes:

6pm – The PErsevere. Jackpot £90. Cheat: The picture round includes Billy Joel. Yeah, the piano man.

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: The music round contains a horrible song by Train. See video below to hear the song:

I’m not a hundred per cent sure why I hate this song so much.

I feel it’s part of a shitty trend of American bands who sing seemingly heartfelt songs when you know they couldn’t give a monkey’s.

Fake emotion. Like someone pretending they like the cake you made. I can’t be dealing with it.

Fake emotion. Like he is definitely going to be in love with this bird for ever, guaranteed, not just for one night, promise. And he feel this so deeply he has to make a song about it and wear an “honest” looking denim jacket to complete the look, when he clearly just wants his hole.

Fake emotion. Fake people. Fake news. #Sad.

Plus, they’re called ‘Train’. That’s shit.
