Monday Night Pub Quiz

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Brian May (music round)

Fringe finished. I think it might be the fireworks tonight so quiz may be quiet – but hopefully I’ll see you in the nice cosy pub where everyone is your friend. Hopefully you’ll see the wisdom in attending the quiz instead of taking your chances with the sea of hooligans and wanks that populate these large outdoor events. And it might rain.

Mmmmm, quiz.

Mind you, if you do eschew the quiz tonight, you won’t have to listen to the fifteen second clip of this absolute steamer that’s in the Safari Lounge music round tonight.

Amazingly, all the youtube comments say they love it. But I remember it being an advert to sell Ford Escorts. Tainted.

Occasionally, May turns up in Dead Pool. It’s the last few days of August so I am collecting names for September. Get your entry in tonight.

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

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)

August In Edinburgh. It’s Hell Get Me Out Of Here… Or Is It?

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Bad Company (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £150. Cheat news: Beastie Boys (pic round)

It’s hitting week three of the Fringe and everyone has had enough. Edinburgh is a nightmare. You can’t GET anywhere. You can’t get served anywhere without an enormous queue.

Well, not exactly.

Of course, the simple solution is that all you have to do is step OUTSIDE the city centre.

I knew a woman from Down South who once had a fringe show on Broughton Street, very near the Cask & Barrel, or whatever that big boozer is called (on the corner of London Street). I remarked that it was a good venue, city centre and she looked at me like I was mad.

As far as she was concerned, Broughton Street could have been the moon. She said NO ONE would come to her show – it was too far away.

So that’s the festival mentality: If it’s not EH1 then it can get tae fuck.

The upside of this is that the city remains relatively calm outside the bubble o’madness. So get yourself to Leith, get yourself to Abbeyhill if you need a break from the city centre crazies.

Come and do the quiz. And win things. And be happy.

Here’s tonight’s music round cheat which applies to the early quiz at Brass Monkey Leith:

Best youtube comment for this comes from someone called Kevin:

“Came for the song, stayed for the chest hair. Not gay.”

Tonight’s quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double.

First one at the Brass Leith concludes 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)

Monday Night Pub Quiz Action, Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Dexy’s Midnight Runners (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Snow Patrol (pic round)

Come to the quiz. You might meet the love of your life. It’s happened before. People who meet at the quiz sometimes get married.

This is not a warning or a threat. I’m just saying.

Meanwhile: tonight’s music round free answer is for the Brass Monkey Leith where the music round will contain a clip of this song by Dexy’s Midnight Runners:

The picture answer for Brass Monkey tonight is Snow Patrol who are described by Wikipedia as a Northern Irish band but a quick sketch through their page reveals that a large part of the band’s history took place in Scotland, as they were formed in Dundee and lived in Glasgow as they tried to break through.

It’s a good story of persistence and showbiz and worth a read, even if you’re like me and think their music is dishwater.

Last chance to enter August Dead Pool is tonight. Don’t miss.

Monday Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Narcotic Thrust (music round)

The music round tune tonight was, according to the info on youtube, the winner of “Best Pop Dance Track,” at the 20th Annual International Dance Music Awards in 2004. Aye, it’s all right. The video has plenty of none-too-subtle pants shots in common with several dance videos from around the same time, notably Destination Calabria which also featured the arousing use of brass.

The picture answer for Brass Monkey tonight is Andy Warhol. Did you know he was shot in 1968 and survived (after a five hour operation to save his life)?

His would-be assassin was a writer named Valerie Solanas who had written the ‘SCUM Manifesto‘, detailing a world without men.

She said that she shot Warhol because she thought he was going to produce her play and steal the rights.

The judge said she was a nutter and locked her up for three years. Warhol is said to have lived the rest of his life in fear that she would shoot him again.

Don’t get caught up in this kind of drama in your own life tonight. Just come to the quiz.

No shooting.

Monday Super Duper Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Poli Genova (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Chicago (pic round)

The music round tune tonight is my favourite Eurovision from the last three years. It’s Bulgaria’s Poli Genova and we saw it live in Stockholm at the ESC in 2016. The place went mad – it’s a dance banger:

 

Monday night is the first night after the terror of the World Cup has lifted like a fog.

Celebrate by leaving the house and meeting real people in a real pub and playing the real quiz for real money.

Monday Satisfaction

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Roxy Music (music round)

No football to ruin everything tonight, so let’s take this moment to feel our good selves right and release the inner trivia god that lurks within us all.

The music round at the Safari tonight includes this all time glam bang:

There is nothing as good as Roxy Music. They are the greatest band of all. Apart from maybe Queen or ABBA. But you know what I mean.

The full version of the song is worth watching. They really go for it.

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Bullet For My Valentine (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Israel (pic round)

Here is the preview of one of the answers in the music round at tonight’s Brass Monkey Leith quiz:

Oh – it’s a wee bit thrashy.

I thought from their name that Bullet For My Valentine would be an Emo band. Well, there you go. Isn’t life just full of surprises?

It’s like when you go to Berlin and you realise you can still smoke inside the pub. Crazy.

Monday Night Pub Quiz Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£150. Cheat: Thailand (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (music round)

A hundred and fifty quid? You could get a new kitchen for that probably, I don’t know, I’m not really in the market for kitchens.

Here’s the cheat source for Safari:

This is the straightest white man rock and roll possible. The sort of band that people like when they’re terminally afraid of showing any love for Eurovision pop just in case they catch the gay.

Doesn’t make the tune bad though, it’s nice. Good rock and roll. But don’t forget to bop to the pop too.

Rock makes you strong. But pop makes you great.

Monday Is The Best Quiz Day Of The Week

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Julia Michaels (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat news: Canola (pic round)

Great jackpots tonight. What’s not to love. Get to the quiz!

Cheat piece for the music round at the Brass Leith tonight, a female singer named Julia Michaels:

It’s a modern one, so it sounds kinda the same as lots of other modern hits, except with a lisp which appears to be her USP.

The “crying voice” used in these songs does my nut in. So many modern singers rely on tone of voice to convey the fact that they are sad.

I thought she looked British from the first minute or so but according to Wiki, she’s American. It doesn’t really matter but it’s funny how we need to know that sort of thing.

More interesting: she writes for others, including Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez. That might explain why she sounds a lot like them.

Monday is great and brilliant and I should have some Cunto cards with me tonight just in case you’re looking for the best gift of 2018.
