Thursday Makes Monsters Out of Moles

Quizzes Tonight:

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

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £150. Cheat answer: Alanis Morissette (pic round)

The other great thing about tonight’s quiz at the Argyle is your chance to meet the organisers of Pint Fest, Scotland’s newest boutique music festival which is taking place in a back garden in Marchmont in May sometime.

The organisers live over the road from the Argyle and chose last week’s quiz to launch their extravaganza.

No bands booked when I last checked but it seems likely to be the event of the summer.

I hope they manage to book Suede.

I always liked Suede and I really liked this when it came out. But it seemed that no one agreed and it was the death of their glory days. Suede was over. Suede was finished. People moved on.

This is the cheat tune for tonight’s music quiz at the Argyle:

After that it was Radiohead and the Strokes and the Arctic Monkeys all that nonsense, as far as guitars were concerned. None of them as good as Suede.

Anyway, you’ll hear approximately twenty seconds of the glory of Suede tonight. Maybe I should fill up my playlists with some of their other terrific works.

By the way – don’t miss Cunto Cards. Still some first edition packs left. Stop me and buy a pack at the quiz or get them online at cunto.org

Wednesday Night Quizzes in Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

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

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

Heyyy. Wednesdays are sexy like a salmon sandwich, but on really good bread.

The Joker is  a smooth midweek lounge lizard snake pit. The Monkey on Drummond Street is a filthy hive of fuck knows what.

There’s something for everyone.

Here’s the music round cheat for the 7pm quiz at the Joker. It’s Blur being a bit awkward. I like the song though.

 

Meanwhile, do you doodle on your jackpot sheet? It makes it more difficult to read the answers, but it can be visually stimulating.

Sunday Pub Quizzes In Good Old Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Londonbeat (music round)

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

You’ll recognise the cheat-music clip from the Persevere music round tonight. It’s a 1991 super-classic:

Mental. Not as mental as anyone who bothered visiting Hampden the other night to witness the most inevitable 0-1 home defeat of all time.

 

I don’t even know why this is in my head. I’ve found it harder and harder and harder to give hoot what Scotland is doing in football as the years wear on. What’s that? 20 years ago now since France 98. Le sigh.

Monday Night – Last Big Jackpot Standing

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£300. Cheat: George Harrison (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £240. Cheat news: Saffron (pic round)

Last Monday was a red-letter day for Luiz Araujo, who have been teetering on the brink of greatness for several months.

After a string of bad fortune on other weeks, their persistence paid off and they bagged £240 last Monday at the Safari. It was a great moment:

Earlier on in the evening, no one managed to nail down to Brass Monkey Leith jackpot, so from a pool of recent large jackpots, tonight is the last one remaining intact.

Come and win £300 tonight. Yes: three hundred pounds.

Here’s the cheat info: a music clip from the music round at Brass Monkey Leith tonight…

It’s George Harrison of The Beatles doing a solo number. I don’t usually go for stuff that’s overtly ‘nice’ but there’s a something about the song. It’s a good ‘un.

By the way, my side project is CUNTO. It’s amazing and you can buy a pack now.

Sunday Night Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Jean Michel Jarre (music round)

Here is the music round cheat info for the Tolbooth: a stunning clip of super-French-ness from the master of all things electronique, Monsieur Jean-Michel Jarre.

Listen very carefully, he will only play this once. (Unless you put the video on repeat).

Meanwhile , people keep asking me about Brexit, Russia and what it all means for the quiz.

Well, I put a report into the British Union of Analysts and asked them to prognosticate.

The bottom line is that Russians murdering their spies and Britain leaving Europe is set to have MINIMAL IMPACT on the quiz.

For this, we should all be grateful.

Thursday Sensations

Quizzes Tonight:

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

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

Thursday is a strange day to work out.

Well it’s probably an easy day to work out if you have a big brain like Stephen Hawking on your side but I guess he cannot help you now.

This might help: its the music round cheat from tonight’s music round at the Argyle:

Tip: don’t actually watch the video any longer than you have to to pick up the tune. It’s a decent song but the video is phenomenally boring.

More interesting is Jim Bowen talking about an episode of Bullseye that they were unable to put on air.

Speaking of which: which of these three was YOUR favourite scientist and entertainer?

My vote goes to Doddy. Bowen’s funny guy but a nasty old racist. Hawking talks bollocks which is of no use to me whatsoever. Dodd does four-hour standup. Legend. Winner.

Quizzes Tonight – Wednesday Night In Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

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

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

Big jackpot at the Monkey last week means minimum amount tonight.

Still loads of great fun to be had and I have now taken delivery of Cunto Cards so you can buy a pack off me tonight, directly.

Meanwhile, here is one of the music round pieces from the Monkey tonight. It’s from one of my favourite bands, Slade.

When I was a kid and first into pop music at the start of the 1980s, Slade were yesterday’s men, comedy characters from the dim and distant mid-nineteen-seventies.

You knew their songs, they’re ‘oldies’ were always on the radio. And you knew they were wacky: the bloke with the mirrors on his top hat and the gurn. The daft looking-cunt on guitar. Song titles with funny spelling. For instance: Skweeze Me Pleeze Me. A ha ha ha. So hilarious.

You knew them primarily for ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’ which was virtually the British national anthem at that time. Literally everyone’s favourite song. No exceptions.

Then, just as they were in danger of becoming a ‘national treasure’ they bucked their own legacy and had a string of 1980s hits which were slightly less energetic than the 70s numbers but still had plenty of powerful pop quality.

This is one of them.

Come out and win tonight. Go on. Come and have feel.

Yo!

Dr P
