Eurovision is over. So I’ll maybe shut up about it now for a few months. Thanks for listening.

For tonight’s quiz at the Persevere, here is the music round cheat answer, which is Nina Simone:

Proper stuff

That’s real talent.

Anyway, I was up late and since I got up this morning I’ve been checking out Eurovision stuff online so I’ll keep this post brief and get it posted.

Yo!

See you at the quiz tonight.

Sunday Night’s All Right For Quizzing

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Dad’s Army (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: The Orb (music round)

Sunday night was OK last week despite a hom Hibs game on a Sunday, which the SFA have seen to provide THREE of in the post-split season. Thanks.

Hopefully tonight will be the same. Put it this way: if Hearts win there is more chance of the quiz being viable as most of the Hibs traffic then goes home.

We’ll see.

Anyway, if you are coming tonight (to the quiz) you’ll need the free answers – here’s the music round cheat for tonight’s quiz at the Tolbooth Tavern:

Wibbly Wobbly

It’s The Orb in the early 90s when everyone was riding high on some kind of spiritual and medical horse. It was cool. You had to be there.

Anyway, come and join us at the quizzes tonight. You’ll love it.

By the way – it’s Dead Pool time of month. You can get your entry in for May tonight

See you at the quiz tonight.

Sunday 14th April 2019

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Lute (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Michael Zager Band (music round)

I went to Aberdeen yesterday and, as ever, it’s great to be out of there and back here.

I also saw one thousand seals on a beach. The beach is Newburgh. It’s great. Go and see the seals.

Anyway, if you are coming tonight (to the quiz) you’ll need these free answers – here’s the music round cheat for tonight’s quiz at the Tolbooth:

Epic Disco

It’s from the high days of Disco, complete with classical influences and dancers in purple. All the dancers in the video are now over sixty years old.

Even rave is getting that way. All the ravers are married and driving cars to supermarkets instead of fields.

Some of them probably drive their car to a supermarket which is built on a piece of land which used to be a field where they once raved to the Prodigy and Suburban Delay

It must pain them with every bag of onions.

This is the ageing process. It’s OK, but it has its bitter moments.

See you at the quiz tonight.

Sunday 24th March

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Missy Elliot (music round)

OK -the free answers above are definitely correct. I double-checked.

Sunday night is gonnae be great. Last Sunday before they put the clocks forward. Best time of the year cos it’s lighter later but you still get a proper night time with the moon and all that jazz.

Don’t be stuck in the house, come out and get stuck into the quiz.

Anyway. Here’s the music round cheat for tonight’s quiz at the Tolbooth:

This was all over your radio in 2001. It got to number 4 and this was back when a number 4 records meant that everyone knew it.

So unless you’re some kind of extreme youth, you probably knew the answer anyway, but there you go and heigh-ho.

The cheat isn’t ALWAYS useful but it’s always worth checking.

And don’t forget: no violent threats at the quiz. That’d be great, thanks.

See you later.

Sun 2nd Dec – Sunday Night Quizzing In Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Ingrid Michaelson (music round)

Sunday is here. December is here.  In between decorating the turkey and sending telegrams to the Queen, you should fit in  a visit to the pub quiz. The quiz, unlike your ex, is always here for you.

Meanwhile, here is the video for tonight’s music round free answer which relates to the Tolbooth Tavern quiz at 8pm:

I don’t know much about Ingrid Michaelson but I like the tune and the video is entertaining too: a back-to-front tribute to an old Robert Palmer vid from the eighties.

Palmer used to get stick for his videos being “sexist”. Thirty years later this vid turns it round. Nice work.

Anyway, see you at the quiz tonight and don’t forget: just cos its December, I aint going to be wearing tinsel or any of that hoo-hah. Calm down. It’s only Dec 2nd.

Yeah.

Sun 11 Nov – Sunday Quizzes Tonight

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: ‘A Beautiful Mind’ (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Maria McKee (music round)

Wooft. That tune in the music round at tonight’s Tolbooth quiz is a hammer and tongs mega belter.

Here it is:

Nearly as good as last week’s photo from the Persevere which flies in the face of the received wisdom that you can’t give booze to a baby.

Booze for the baby?
Baby loves quiz

Yeah.

Sun 4th Nov – Quizzes Tonight

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Morrissey (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Leatherback (pic round)

Ah – I see we have a couple of rollovers tonight which have been a bit harder to find on Sundays recently.

That’s good.

Also good is old grumpo himself, Morrissey. This is his song which appears in the music round at the Percy tonight:

The song is called ‘I Have Forgiven Jesus’. Morrissey makes me laugh every single time. In fact I made a Moz-meme the other day. Wanna see it?

Image may contain: 2 people, text

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha Morrissey.

By the way, Sunday has a meetup group who come along to the quiz. It’s great if you want to quiz but don’t have a team.

Yeah.

Sunday 28th October 2018 – Quizzes Tonight In Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Mister Strong (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Alice Cooper (music round)

Last week’s dance-off at the Persevere probably cannot be beaten but at least its a rollover.

Taking on a six-year old at dancing? It’s not going to work is it? Good effort from Davey though, a bold performance under the circumstances.

Anyway – here’s Alice Cooper making a perfectly serviceable but ultimately musically uninspiring hair-metal rock-ballad into something better by dressing up for the video:

I never really “got” Alice Cooper. I reckon that glam metal stuff was for blokes who were too scared to be into Human League or Roxy Music in case they got called a poof.

The code was that the greasy look-made people think you were definitely a “proper man”. The make-up and the spandex were still there but “covered” by the leather and the motorbikes.

By the way, Sunday has a meetup group who come along to the quiz.

Yeah.
