Why Is Phil Collins “The Beast” Anyway?

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£100. Cheat: Depeche Mode (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Phil Collins (pic round)

Hey! A hundred quid at the Brass Monkey on Leith Walk tonight. Come and win.

Cheat piece for the music round at the Brass Leith tonight, it’s Depeche Mode:

I grew up listening to Depeche Mode and was always pretty sure this song is about either class, control or BDSM, I’ve never been quite sure which. This is the first time I’ve ever seen the video and it does nothing at all to clear things up.

I guess it’s about all three. Didn’t expect to see Greenham Common in there though…

So why is Phil Collins (star of tonight’s Safari Lounge picture round) known as THE BEAST?

Well, it’s a list of alleged crimes which include but are not limited to:

  • Taking all the money from Live Aid, thus…
  • Ensuring that Africa still starves to this day.
  • Divorcing second wife BY FAX.
  • Controlling the world’s tsunamis from his underwater headquarters in a lake in Switzerland.
  • Riding his bike through red lights.
  • Conducting a covert war against the poor of the Brazilian favelas using his own private security force.
  • Murdering orphans
  • Created Ebola virus in his Swiss lab
  • etc

What a bastard. In fact even if half of these things are true, it would still make him a Cunto, and that explains why he’s in the 2018 deck of Cunto Cards.

Thursday Night Quiz Action In Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Herb Alpert (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Mr. Strong (pic round)

Herb Alpert is an old easy-listening favourite of mine from the Boudoir days.

One of his later, smoother works is in the music round at the Argyle tonight:

This is the kind of music you play when it’s just you and the candles. So smooth. Treat yourself nice. Draw the curtains and light the fire.

By the way – it is now ILLEGAL to be an arsehole in the park, so put out that BBQ and get yourself to the Argyle.

Wednesday Night Pub Quiz

Quizzes tonight:

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

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

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey:

This is the most average thing I have ever heard. It makes Maroon 5 sound like the fount of personality.

It sounds like Orson, Train and all those other American bands that sounds the same.

Last.fm describes OneRepublic as ‘genreless’.

That’s not true. I can name the genre. The genre is “American Pish”

By the way, last chance to play Dead Pool for June is either tonight or tomorrow.

Hope to see you at the quiz tonight

Monday Night Quiz Action and Reaction

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £150. Cheat news: Liverpool (pic round)

Great jackpots tonight. What’s not to love. Get to the quiz!

Cheat piece for the music round at the Brass Leith tonight, it’s Chicks on Speed:

I’ve always liked this song but I’ve just watched three or four Chicks on Speed videos on youtube and have decided I don’t like them as much as I thought I did.

They seem to be trying very very hard to be “ART” and “EDGE”.

I’ve not read about them and this might be a completely baseless judgement but I reckon they look like they started off life rich and, using this background platform of stability, are able to pursue “art” and shun commercialism.

Nothing inherently wrong with that. Fair play. But I think I prefer the commercial equivalent: something like Lady Gaga. It feels more honest.

Anyway, I’m sure Chicks on Speed don’t need me to validate them. I’m sure they’re enjoying their level of the fame monster just fine.

And they’re probably still more famous and more commerical than me, your favourite Edinburgh quizmaster.

Come to the quiz tonight and validate me. Win money.

Monday is great and brilliant and I should have some Cunto cards with me tonight just in case you’re looking for the best gift of 2018.

Sunday Night Edinburgh Pub Quizzes

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Cher Lloyd (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: The Bill (pic round)

Hey. It’s a bank holiday tomorrow which means it is more or less your civic duty to go out and get pished to within an inch of your life tonight.

While you’re out pop in to one of the quizzes and win the cash which will serve as sesh-fuel.

Rinse and repeat until you feel the kind of emotions that only guys like Freddie Mercury and Jesus Christ have so far been able to feel. And they’re both dead.

Once you get the feeling, it will be so real you won’t know what to do, rather like Old Mother Hubbard in her shoe.

I’m digressing before I’ve even really got started. Here is the pop video for the Persevere music round cheat info:

 

It’s Cher Lloyd who I hadn’t really heard of but Wikipedia tells me she rose to fame in 2010 by finishing fourth in the seventh series of X-Factor. I must have been busy at that point.

Snide remarks aside, it’s interesting to see how even the very young can be afflicted by nostalgia.

This is one of the youtube comments on the song:

“I was six when this came out im 11 why those years fly by so fast…”

Really? What a shame for the jaded over-the-hill pre-teen.

Wikipedia also offers vital tattoo information on Lloyd’s body-art choices:

“Lloyd has several different types of tattoos, expressing different emotions, such as an eye on her inner forearm. She has a collection of 21 total tattoos ranging from a cage holding a bird to represent her deceased uncle to the heart in her ring finger as a tribute to her husband Craig.”

Every day is a school day. But what’s the point of school? This question is too complex to be dealt with here. Just come to the quiz.

Yo!

Quizzes Tonight:

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

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £200. Cheat answer: Suede (music round)

Super TWO HUNDRED quid vibes at the Newsroom tonight. Get your hands on the do re mi.

By the way I have double-checked the info above. These ARE the correct cheats this week.

Here is the music round cheat for the Newsroom:

Totally great. Suede were fantastic. Maybe the last good band before I stopped caring about guitar bands and refocused my brain towards pop.

The video has KPs and binmen, is full of rubbish and backstreet shite in it and still makes the city look sexy. Nice work.

Monday Is The Best Quiz Day Of The Week

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat news: Canola (pic round)

Great jackpots tonight. What’s not to love. Get to the quiz!

Cheat piece for the music round at the Brass Leith tonight, a female singer named Julia Michaels:

It’s a modern one, so it sounds kinda the same as lots of other modern hits, except with a lisp which appears to be her USP.

The “crying voice” used in these songs does my nut in. So many modern singers rely on tone of voice to convey the fact that they are sad.

I thought she looked British from the first minute or so but according to Wiki, she’s American. It doesn’t really matter but it’s funny how we need to know that sort of thing.

More interesting: she writes for others, including Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez. That might explain why she sounds a lot like them.

Monday is great and brilliant and I should have some Cunto cards with me tonight just in case you’re looking for the best gift of 2018.

Sunday Pub Quizzes On Tonight In Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Mars Bar (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Eddy Grant (music round)

Sorry if you were at the Persevere last Sunday when we were unable to go ahead with the quiz due to the large number of Hibees in the bar.

It was disappointing for me too but that’s just one of those things that comes with the territory but maybe we could crowd-fund a campaign to only have football played on Saturdays ONLY.

The good thing is that the pub agreed to make the jackpot a rollover, so we are up to £90 tonight. That’s cool.

Anyway, here’s tonight’s cheat item which relates to the music round at the Tolbooth Tavern

It’s Eddy Grant, the one where he’s got a raft rather than the one where he’s got a motorbike.

I like both. I might even play both tonight. Come to the quiz to win money and find out the happy or sad ending to this Eddy Grant whirlpool.
