Last Ever Quiz Under Murderous Tory Regime Of Hate

Well, you never know. Corbyn might be PM this time tomorrow. Get to the pub!

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot : £120. Cheat: One of the music round artistes tonight is 3 Doors Down. See vid below to hear song.

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £100. Cheat: One of the answers in the pic round is The BBC

I’ve just listened to this song. It’s really awful. It’s like it’s been put together by a committee of Tories and Lib Dems and performed by some radge out of UKIP.

If you like this music it’s because you are fundamentally a bad person.

Think about your life choices, for the sake of GOD.

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…

Wednesday Quiz News

Quizzes otnight:

7pm The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: They Might Be Giants are in the music round. See vid below to hear the song.

9pm – Brass Monkey (Drummond Street). Jackpot £120. Cheat: George Clinton is in the picture round.

They Might Be Giants early-career album tracks turn up now again in my music rounds. It’s a personal taste thing. There’s no reason why you should know them.

Giving this out as a cheat is an attempt to redress the balance between too-hard-how-the-fuck-should-I-know-that and i-ken-that.

Thanks.

Thursday Night Is Quiz Night

Come along tonight and find out your future.

7pm – Argyle Bar & Cellar. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: There is a Finishing Trowel in the picture round.

9pm – Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat: The music round includes Harold Faltemeyer. See video below.

Last Thursday at the Newsroom was epic. The recently-minted team known as The Dandy Narwhals were successful where it counted, getting 8-out-of-8 on the money round just as it was £350 night.

Amazingly, so did five other people. Amazingly, one of them got exactly the same same close-but-wrong answer on the tiebreaker.

So it went down to sudden-death trivia for £350 and it was the Dandies what won it. But not after several nerve-shattering questions. Amazing.

Here’s the video for the music round cheat. It’s dead 80s.

Cheat: Tonight’s quiz includes the answer Sicily, which crops up in the picture round. Now you know.

The Brass Monkey (Drummond Street), 9pm

Jackpot: In amongst the heaving youth, there will be £120 ready for the plucking. Turn up with half a brain and you’re halfway there. Like Jon Bon Jovi.

Cheat: The music round includes this clanking of slice of shite by Howard Jones, from what is known as my “youth”:

Not cool? Well, it’s all we had in 1984. That and the Eurythmics. I could never work out whether the Eurythmics were cool or arse. Bit of both, I suppose.

Here is a picture of someone winning at the quiz, hopefully this will inspire you to be like them!

Anyway, the last Wednesday quizzes of the year offer the following:

Cheat: One of the music round snips tonight is by the Hues Corporation, see vid below. Note: they actually had pretty decent A/V equipment back in 1974 but someone else was using it that day so the Hues Corp had to film their vid using a paper cup covered in clingfilm.

Wednesday Night Quizzes, Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes, as is the case every Wednesday:

The Joker & The Thief, 7pm

Brass Monkey (Drummond Street), 9pm

Your jackpots:

£60 at the Joker

£120 at the Monkey

Your cheats:

Every day I like to post a little information so that YOU, they girl or guy who could be fucked to look at the page, gets a wee head-start.

So tonight’s extra bonus info:

Joker: One of the answer in the music round is the Rolling Stones (see video below). When I heard this it was the first time I’d really liked the Stones. Until then I’d thought they were a little bland. But this is proper sexy.

Brass: Up at the monkey, one of the answers in the picture round is Liverpool, as in the football club. So that’ll please Liam if he’s in. Although, having typed, that I suddenly can’t remember – maybe he’s an Evertonian?
