Tonight’s Quiz Info

7pm – The Joker & The Thief, Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Music round contains Keri Hilson (see vid below).

9pm – Brass Monkey (Drummond Street), 9pm. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: picture round includes Kasabian

In this song Ms Hilson sings “Don’t hate me cos I’m beautiful”. The comments indicate that several people see this as ’empowering’. I’m really not sure. Like genuinely don’t know.

I’m also not sure if the song is shit or not. I like pop and I like hooks. This song has hooks, this song has over 70 million views on youtube. But I can’t help thinking it’s a bit shit.

Anyway, come to the quiz. CU 2NYT, baybee.

Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh: Sunday Night

The Dr Paul quiz rolls around for another Sunday night tonight:

6pm The Persevere (£60 jackpot)

8pm Tolbooth Tavern (£30 jackpot)

Cheats: The Persevere music round contains the answer “Get Carter“. Meanwhile, the music round at the Tolbooth includes Fiction Factory, see vid below

Pure Scottish class from the 80s that tune. Pop whopper. They were from Perth. Man, the eighties. Anything was possible.

How Is It Possible To Have Fun On A Sunday In Edinburgh?

Sunday. Invented by the wizards-of-boredom-and-dread to ruin the weekend-end. But there is a cure. Pub Quiz

The Persevere, 6pm Jackpot £30, Cheat: Chris Spedding (see vid below)

Tolbooth Tavern, 8pm Jackpot £60, Cheat: Chinchilla

The music round clue for the music round at the Percy is ‘Motorbikin” by Chris Spedding which sounded badass and hard-shoulder edge-to-the-max when I was a little kid listening to oldies on Radio 1.

Now it sounds middle-of-the-road, lame and tame, like a fat mechanic having a nap on his lunchbreak while surrounded by Ford Fiestas that he can’t be arsed to fix until tomorrow.

Apparently Chris Spedding didn’t ride a motorbike. It’s just a song, not a lifestyle and belief system.

You can tell this from the badly-acted mean-and-scowly face he does on this clip. It’s unconvincing.

What’s certainly true is that when he wasn’t pulling faux scowls on Top of The Pops he was dressed up as Wellington and playing guitar for the Wombles (who ruled the charts for a while in the 70s).

Far more convincing.

Education Gets Shelved

The future is no education. There will be robots to think and do everything. Why train a human?

While you consider this bleak outlook, treasure the brain you still have, take it to the pub and make it think answers for you at the quiz while you simultaneously murder it with booze. You can get away with it by calling it ‘symbiotic’.

Tonight:

The Persevere, 6pm

Jackpot tonight: A whop-bop £60

Cheat: The picture round includes the answer Greece

Tolbooth Tavern, 8pm

Jackpot tonight: Cash sum of £60

Cheat: The music round at the Tolbooth tonight includes the answer Hot Butter. It’s all about this apocalyptic banger:

Meanwhile: consider this. Since they dropped the first atomic bomb in 1945 the power has existed to kill us all in one go.

The psychological impact of knowing this and living with this knowledge makes us who we are today.

There can be no comparing people from pre-1945 to us because this knowledge makes us all fundamentally different to people from before that time. There was no way that destroying everyone in one shot could be comprehended back then. We’ve lived with it every day of our lives. No wonder we’re all mad.
