Sunday Dreams

Pub quizzes in Edinburgh tonight:

6pm Persevere. Jackpot £60 cash. Cheat: Eric Clapton is in the music round (see vid below).

8pm Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot £120 cash. Cheat: One of the pic round answers is a Hillman Imp

I can’t be bothered with Eric Clapton or ‘Derek Caption’ as is his real name.

The music strikes me as dull. And he doesn’t even dress up for his gigs. He looks like he’s about to solder some kind of circuit.

To be fair. ‘I Shot The Sherriff‘ is all right but he never looks as though he enjoys anything.

Can you imagine him getting wasted on red wine and strong weed and playing Risk all night? Nah, me neither. And that’s how I judge people.

Quiz action in Edinburgh tonight:

7pm The Argyle Bar. Jackpot £90 cash. Cheat: The Dixie Chicks are in the music round (see vid below)

9pm Newsroom. Jackpot £50 cash. Cheat: One of tonight’s answers is ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.

The music round hit for the Argyle is an amazing song by the Dixie Chicks. It’s got spousal abuse and murder and it sounds like a party. Perfect country. Check out the video:

All The Pricks Have Gone Home. It Is Safe To Come Out.

All the wanks of the known world have packed their bags and feld to London. The city is ours again.

Quiz tonight:

The Joker & The Thief7pm

Jackpot: £150

Cheat: This song by The Inspiral Carpets is in the music round tonight:

No Brass Monkey tonight but we’ll be back in business from next Wednesday. Dig it.

Come out and bask in the relative emptiness. Compared to last week you can leave the house half an hour later and still get to the pub in good time. Happy days.

Celebrate The End of The Fringe By Winning Money

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot £150. Cheat: There is a Yew in the answers for the picture round.

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat: The music round contains Wet Wet Wet. See video that follows.

Geez. That’s thirty years ago. I saw Pellow once playing the lawyer in a production of ‘Chicago‘ at the Kings in Glasgow. I always hated Wet Wet Wet and wasn’t much looking forward to the Pellow.

But he was brilliant.

Fair play to the Clydebank-reared superstar.

Thursday Quiz Time

7pm – Argyle Bar. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Terry Jacks is in the music round. Doing his classic song. See vid below.

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat: One of the answers in the picture round is ‘Fly’.

The song was a whopper hit in the seventies. A man is about to die in the song but it’s only a sanitization of a Jacques Brel song.

Monday Quiz Action

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot £100. Cheat: There is an act in the music round called Sunbeam. See vid below to hear the song.

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat: One of the answers in the pic round is Waterloo.

Nice pop-trance thing. Video’s shite though. Too many cuts, too confusing. There’s a chase and guns and some sci-fi shit and nothing really makes any sense.

Better just dance.

Sunday Night Pub Quiz

Hey. Come to the quiz. It’s great fun with your mates and you can win money.

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat:  the picture round includes a Harpy

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot £60. Cheat: the music round contains your old pal Shakin Stevens. See video below to hear the song:

Shaky was big in the 1980s. I remember him always being on Top of The Pops. My mum bought the ‘Shaky’ album, just like everyone else in Britain did in 1981.

But the 21st century is an unforgiving landscape for 80s legends, particularly the youtube comments section.

A person named ‘TurfGuy’ comments:

Shaking Who? This limey faggot has no talent. Elvis had more in his feces than this needle-dicked motherfucker

This seems a bit much. And, of course, TurfGuy is wrong. Shakin Stevens isn’t a Limey. He isn’t English, he’s Welsh.

Also, I don’t know many albums TurfGuy has released that have gone Gold or Platinum. Shakin Stevens has five.

Thursday Pub Quiz Edinburgh Action

Come and have a shot at tonight’s quizzes:

7pm – The Argyle Bar (Upstairs). Jackpot £30. Cheat: Peter Howson in one of the pic round answers.

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £150. Cheat: The music round includes the theme from Mork & Mindy, see vid below

I never used to particularly enjoy Mork And Mindy. I think I had a problem with Robin Williams being so hairy like an apparently-grown-man but then fucking around like a three-year-old.

I get that he was supposed to be a jester, a fool, bringing the colour and wisdom of childhood back to the grey adults, but the whole man-child thing doesn’t appeal. Never has.

I also didn’t like the way they cut about in a jeep with no roof. Being from Scotland makes this kind of behaviour seem reckless. Do they not have rain in Boulder, Colorado?

I also never liked the name ‘Mork’. To me it sounded like a simpleton attempting to pronounce ‘Mark’. And Mindy was rubbish, she did nowt.

Happy Days was better.

Hey Cunningham. Quiz me.
