Thursday – Biggest Jackpot for Ages

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £120. Cheat answer: Iggy Pop (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £250. Cheat answer: Jean-Michel Jarre (music round)

Tonight’s quiz at The Newsroom provides the biggest jackpot I’ve had for a while. £250.

It’s a quarter of a grand!

Here’s the music round cheat for the Newsroom:

The drum machine sound is awesome. The whole thing is so French. I think this is a sign that France are going to win the world cup.

How the hell is me posting a video of a 40-year old synth piece a “sign”? I don’t know either but it makes as much sense as some of the other cleromancy that goes on. One immediately thinks of Paul the Octopus in 2010, David Hasselhoff’s dogs at the last world cup and now Bill Bailey has his ducks of destiny…

What a load of shite.

What’s NOT a load of shite is that you can win a big bucket of money tonight. Come to the quiz!

This Is Thursday. It’s Time To Quiz It

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £90. Cheat answer: Aaliyah (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £200. Cheat answer: Malta (pic round)

The Newsroom provides the biggest jackpot of the Dr Paul week tonight: £200 up for grabs.

The Newsroom was dead last week – so come and capitalize on the summer vibe and win DA MONEY

Here’s the music round cheat for the Argyle Bar:

It’s Aaliyah who died at the age of 22 in  plane crash in the Bahamas.

Disaster.

If she had lived she could have been a judge on X-Factor or something.

The song is good – like a cross between Janet Jackson and TLC. The Bass moves everywhere and, listening to it now, I just noticed that it references I Know You Got soul by Erik B & Rakim – proper old school.

The video is also very Janet Jackson with lots of co-ordinated movements between dancers, all in some kind of showroom for garden water features (night theme).

For dying so young, Aaliyah properly left her mark.

Wiki says ” She is listed by Billboard as the tenth most successful female R&B artist of the past 25 years and 27th most successful R&B artist in history“.

Not bad. Just a shame about the airplane crash. She’s in good company though.

Thursday Could Be Your Night, Today

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Generation X (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £150. Cheat answer: Faroes (pic round)

The Newsroom provides the biggest jackpot of the Dr Paul week tonight: £150 up for grabs.

Also: summer seems to have hit the Newsroom hard and its been fairly quiet the last couple of weeks so you might find yourself with a better chance to win tonight than in most of the quiz venues.

Here’s the music round cheat for the Argyle Bar:

The video is great: it has urban industrial squalor, rooftop zombie dance attack and electrical fightback. The song is good too.

The answer I have tonight is “Generation X” although the real story is more complicated than that. The band was originally “Generation X”  but when this came out, they’d changed their name to “Gen X” BUT the single was a flop. THEN they split up and the singer, Billy Idol went solo. The video is from a later solo release, which was a hit but under his own name.

Gee, writing pop questions can be a minefield.

Remember kids, don’t write your own questions at home without the help of a professional.

More interestingly, the song is supposedly on the topic of masturbation, which itself is the posh word for having a wank, rubbing one out, feeding the ducks, flicking the bean, etc

That’s what they say anyway, same as they say it about ‘Blister In The Sun‘ by the Violent Femmes.

There’s also a song by 1970s prog-rock favourites Caravan titled ‘If I Could Do It All Over Again, Id Do It All Over You‘ which has to be suspect.

Make Thursday Great Again. Come To The Quiz

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Pole-Vaulting (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £100. Cheat answer: One Direction (music round)

Here’s the music round cheat for tonight at the Newsroom. The Newsroom attracts its fair share of after-work Colins and Susans so they probably know this one already:

I’d love to buck the trend and say something nice about One Direction but it won’t be for this song which is more pish than a Glastonbury portaloo.

So anyway, bring your friends. Come to the quiz. Sit down and answer questions. Get them right. Win.

Tonight.
