Sun 17th Feb. Valentine’s Day Is Over

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Armani (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Charlie XCX (music round)

Sunday night doesn’t get better than this: a wee walk to the pub. A thrilling Dr Paul quiz, perhaps with a win, perhaps not. Then a few more pints of wine, a daunder home via the chippy and then watch Das Boot on Netflix.

Such perfection could be yours… tonight!

For the quiz at the Tolbooth, here is the video for tonight’s music round free answer:

This is one of those pop videos that’s intercut with scenes from a film in which the song was used. The film is ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ in which young Americans with terminal cancer visit Amsterdam, fall in love and die.

I just read the Wikipedia summary, I haven’t seen the film and probably won’t because I usually watch films for entertainment and terminal cancer just doesn’t cut it for me as a leisure activity.

For exampe I watched ‘Rio‘ with my daughter the other day which is an animated film about parrots and monkeys with loads of songs and jokes. That was more like it.

Having said that, The Fault In Our Stars did well and has good ratings. If it’s your kind of gig then it looks like a good film.

Anyway – no one is going to die at the quiz tonight. That’s my prediction anyway.


See you later.

Ooh hah.

Team Name Image Search #5: Team Omni

In #dpquiz terms, Team Omni are a dissolute squad of young Edinburgh drunks, ruthlessly coming first or sometimes tenth in the quiz and winning a fair amount of booze and grumbling about the jackpot round without a single fucking care about the rest of the world.

But if you put “Team Omni” in Google image search, you get these women who are from a hotel in Atlanta, Georgia, USA and who like to raise money for children who need chemotherapy.

It’s a big world.
