Saxophone Disaster

Wikipedia sentence(s) of the day, found today at 0911, is about French synth maestro Jean-Michel Jarre and a doomed collaboration:

“Jarre worked with several Houston-based astronauts, including Bruce McCandless II and Ronald McNair, an accomplished musician who was to have played the saxophone on “Rendez-Vous VI”, recorded in the weightless environment of space. The live performance was curtailed by McNair’s death in the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster on 28 January 1986.”

Here’s a picture of Jean Michel Jarre, still being sad about it, thirty years later.

It’s Monday. Come On In.

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: The Departed (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat news: B-52s (music round)

The USA and the Philippines may be struggling with the aftermath of cyclones and hurricanes and all that business but because we live in ultra-reasonable Scotland, this is not an issue and should NOT prevent anyone coming to the quiz tonight.

If there are any weather or flooding or transport issues which DO prevent you from making it to the two entertainment centres tonight (the Monkey and the Safari) then let me know on Twitter.

Meanwhile, here is a cheat clue for tonight’s quiz at the Safari, it’s the The B-52s:

The song doesn’t start until 8.35 but I’ve linked to this video so you can see a couple of their other songs. They really are the greatest band in pop history.

But never mind the B-52s. You need to choose what you’re going to wear to the quiz tonight. Something shiny? Something checked? Make it work.

Remember: tonight’s pub quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double (and people do).

 

First one at the Brass Leith finishes at 8.30pm and the second one at the Safari Lounge begins at 9pm (although I don’t usually hit the first question until about 10 past or quarter past)

I might be on the bike tonight but if I’m getting a taxi  I’m always happy to give you a lift between the two places. Free of charge!

Sunday Night Pub Quiz Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Nick Drake (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Reese Witherspoon (pic round)

Come on now and get out of your lazy fat sunday sofa. Shake a leg. Break a sweat. Move a muscle. GET TO THE QUIZ.

You will be rewarded with intellectual stimulation, a drink and a chance to achieve legend status.

Here’s the music round cheat which pertains to the Percy tonight. It’s Nick Drake:

Nice stuff. Quality hippy folk sound. Drake never made the 27 Club-  he died when he was just 26 years old.

Drake’s death was an overdose and was officially ruled as suicide, although the singer left no note.

Don’t worry though, don’t be spooked. I’ve listened to this song for many years and although it’s performed in a minor key, it hasn’t made me kill myself. I haven’t caught suicide by listening to it.

Which means the quiz will go ahead as usual tonight!

Take note – £120 at the Tolbooth tonight. Yeah.

Yo!

The Whole Monday Thing

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: The Bean (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £90. Cheat news: Wyclef Jean (musc round)

Tonight’s Brass MOnkey quiz is the third fifty-quidder in a row. Will someone win the jackpot again? It’s not like the questions are getting any easier or any harder.

These things sometimes just go in runs.

Meanwhile, here’s the video which reveals the cheat clue for tonight’s affair at the Safari:

That’s the second Monday video in a row that’s been filmed in an airport. Don’t presume this is planned or a theme or some kind of clue. It’s just the quiz and this is just a co-incidence.

Monday Glory, Possibly Tragedy

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Argentina (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Chase & Status (music round)

Monday is brilliant. Great people in great pubs doing great things to each other before, during and after the quiz.

The quiz is just part of it. The whole experience is what counts. Just the same as going to church is more than just the communion. More than just the hymns…

Speaking of music, here’s the cheat info relating to the Safari tonight: a music clip from Chase and Status. It’s not a hymn…

There’s some fairly heavy make up in that video. It’s like Arbroath in 1987.
