Crazy Martin’s Money Is Still In The Pot

Wild boss “Crazy Martin” lobbed an extra £90 in the Strathie pub quiz jackpot last week but it was NOT WON and it means tonight’s jackpot has soared to a frankly unsustainable £210.

Be the one who wins it tonight. Quiz at 7pm!

Cheat Clues

Here is the cheat clue for tonight’s music round at the Strathie. It’s La Bionda who are a pair of Italian brothers who felt very nice, very disco in the 70s and 80s.

The video tells the story of what will happen when Italy gets round to having a space program (their sex-mad astronauts will easily be seduced by weird alien lady-ghosts)

Italians conquers space but are immediately seduced by aliens

It’s like an episode of Star Trek but with better music and more honest. If Captain Kirk really did go for all those space-women, it would be sure to wrong pretty quickly but he always wins, that’s the American way.

In this video, the heroes are defeated straight away, lured by the promise of intergalactic sex. This human frailty is realized and honestly documented. This is the European way.

Opportunity smells like Leith.

Opportunity smells like £210

Be there tonight!

Cheers,

Monday 25th November 2019 – Crazy Martin Drops Dramatic Extra Jackpot!

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £200. Cheat: Ry Cooder (music round)

7pm – Portobello Tap. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Cream (music round)

9pm – Argyle Bar Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Heron (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £90. Cheat news: White Chicks (pic round)

Crazy Martin is the geezer who owns both the Brass Monkey Leith and the Strathie.

why do they call him Crazy Martin? Well, occasionally he does crazy things and the crazy thing he has done this time is to suddenly lob a LOAD of extra money at the quizzes this week.

So – there’s suddenly an extra £100 in the Brass pot and £90 extra at the Strathie.

That means tonight’s biggest jackpot is at the Brass Leith and it’s a big fat and sexy £200. In cash.

Loco!

Cheats

Here are the music round cheats for tonight

The first is for the Brass Monkey Leith:

It’s got accordion in it so it’s OK by me

Ry Cooder was voted 8th best guitarist in the world by Rolling Stone magazine but I always say that just because a certain piece of music is difficult to play that doesn’t mean it’s great to listen to.

I ike this piece of music, but that’s probably more down to the accordion.

The video tells a myth-story beloved of musicians everywhere which is that all you have to do is have talent, and suddenly loads of people will appear out of nowhere to listen to your talent and appreciate your talent and make you a commercial success and a beloved hero.

OK, fine.

Meanwhile, here is the other music round cheat which tonight applies to Kerry’s quiz at the Portobello Tap. It’s Cream:

Stinking old rock

Cream purvey a different kind of white-man guitar music, with more rock and roll stink, a lot more hippy whiff, and and less accordion. It’s still good though. Probably because one of them is Scottish.

Sometimes, that’s all it takes.

Dead Pool tonight at all quizzes – remember to put an entry in for December.

See you tonight.

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Feargal Sharkey (music round)

Dave Grohl approves of tonight's £210 jackpot
Dave Grohl approves of tonight’s £210 jackpot

And here is the cheat music round answer which applies to the early quiz tonight at the Joker And The Thief:

That’s Feargal Sharkey who used to be the singer with the Undertones (Teenage Kicks, My Perfect Cousin). The Undertones were cool in a punk pop way. Everyone liked the Undertones, then they disappeared.

Then, a few years later, it was the mid-1980s and Feargal Sharkey suddenly appeared out of nowhere to became this massive solo artist for about two songs and then, just as quickly, disappeared into oblivion.

Two flah-in-the-pan careers from the same bloke. Nice work.

Anyway, just imagine what you’re going to spend the £210 on when you win the jackpot at the Monkey tonight.

Come to the quiz.

Proper Big Jackpot Tonight At The Argyle

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £210. Cheat answer: Tintin (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Albert Collins (music round)

So last week was a weird one at the Argyle: heightened jackpot but low turnout. Will it be the same again this week? If so, it increases your own chances of winning the big money if you attend and play the jackpot round.

The cheat music for tonight is for the later quiz at the Newsroom (9pm) and it’s a band called The Vapors. You all know the song:

That’s all I’ve got to say today except that I am still surprised that giraffes sleep standing up (used the question at both quizzes last night).

I fell asleep standing up once. I was on the London Underground. When I woke up I had no idea what the fuck was going on. I guess giraffes feel like this EVERY SINGLE DAY.

The rest of the time they must spend wondering how everyone got so small.

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!

Sensational Jackpot Monday Night Edinburgh Pub Quiz Action

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: 200. Cheat: Chocolate Puma (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £210. Cheat news: Othello (pic round)

Absolutely loads of money on offer at the quizzes tonight. The kind of money that gets Warren Buffet greased and Elon Musk hard.

Be part of it. Say you were there and be ready to tell the story about the time you went to both Monday night Dr Paul quizzes, won both jackpots and cleared more than £400 in Great British Pounds.

Here’s the video for a clip from tonight’s music round at the Brass LEith. It’s from 2001 and sounds EXACTLY like 2001. I think it perhaps THE most typical track of 2001. Even more so.

Except may Rui Da Silva, DJ Pied Piper and Roger Sanchez

The first of those three links is particularly 2001 because it’s introduced by Gail Porter and she references Jamie Theakston.

I think the sample in the Rui Da Silva song is Spandau Ballet, but I can’t quite place it.

If I wasn’t a quizmaster I think I’d produce electronic dance music, mainly built around samples of Spandau Ballet, Simple Minds, and Duran Duran songs of the early 1980s. It sounds like a decent way to make money.

It also sounds like an easy way to make fuck all money. I think there are quite a few procuders of electronic dance music based on old pop. I think it’s a buyers’ market.

So I’ll probably stick to quizzes just now. And of course, Cunto.

What is Cunto? Cunto is like Top Trumps but the deck is stacked with utter cunts. It’s my new invention and you can buy a pack now.

Who’s in the deck? Donald Trump and 43 other prime cunts. That’s who

Great Big Jackpot Tonight

Any time we go £200 or more, I’d consider that a great jackpot. Your views may differ. I don’t know.

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot £200. Cheat: One of the answers in the picture round is Gone With The Wind.

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Them music round includes The New York Dolls who were, apparently Morrissey’s favourite band at one time. I only know a couple of their tunes but they rock. Reminds me a little of the Cramps, but with a more glam sound.

I just looked up the singer and am slightly surprised to discover he’s a 70s punk rock star who is still alive. Nice work, David Johansen.
