Wednesday Night Pub Quiz

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £90. Cheat: Viven Leigh (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: One Republic (music round)

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey:

This is the most average thing I have ever heard. It makes Maroon 5 sound like the fount of personality.

It sounds like Orson, Train and all those other American bands that sounds the same.

Last.fm describes OneRepublic as ‘genreless’.

That’s not true. I can name the genre. The genre is “American Pish”

By the way, last chance to play Dead Pool for June is either tonight or tomorrow.

Hope to see you at the quiz tonight

Wednesday Pub Quiz Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Open Water (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: Architects (music round)

Big jackpot got won last week at the Joker by the SPECKIES, so well done to them and it means that our biggest jackpot tonight is at the Monkey. Ninety pounds on offer.

Here’s the cheat tip for the Monkey, it’s some rotten old pop garage thing from 2000. You don’t hear stuff like this very much these days except in Dr Paul Quiz music rounds

Meanwhile, I listed the May dead pool entries this morning. Have a look at the post for more detail, but basically all the smart money has moved onto George Bush Sr. (the older, less dippit of the Bush prez duo)

Hope to see you at the quiz tonight

May Dead Pool Line Up

I’ve just completed the data entry for May DEAD POOL. Your picks for the month look like this:

Big stories this month:

  1. A heavy upswing in support for the demise of George Bush Senior. This is, presumably, in the wake of the death of his partner Barbara during April. Plus the facts that he is old as fuck (93) and a bit fucked (Parkinson’s, sepsis, etc)
  2. The first appearance, as far as I can recall, of Amber Rudd. I reckon not. Tory cuntos who lose their jobs tend to just pop up later in mutated form. Rather than die. Sadly.
  3. Same with rapists. Bill Cosby will protest, complain, go to jail, serve time, and sincerely think it is all someone else’s fault. He won’t kill himself. That’s not how that mob operate.
  4. Quizbuster mythbuster kiss fact participants Nichele Nichols and William Shatner are BOTH on the list. Their kiss on Star Trek (as Uhuru and Kirk) is regularly quoted as the first interracial kiss on television. But this is not true.
  5. Also, no real story but it’s nice to see Scotland’s top showbiz talent Marti Pellow making a wee appearance on the list. I saw him once doing Billy Flynn in ‘Chicago’ and I thought he was brilliant. I hope he doesn’t die.

Sunday Satisfaction

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £150. Cheat: French (pic round)

Sunday is a good day but the music round clue for tonight at the Percy is a bit meh. Here it is:

It goes on a bit. Listen to twenty seconds of it and you’ll get the idea.

I have nothing to say except that Dale Winton was better than Verne Troyer who was, in turn, better than Avicii.

I don’t think anyone had any of them in Dead Pool.

November 2017 Dead Pool: Names

Here are the names you chose for Dead Pool this month. If you picked one that drops, you win a £1 million scratchcard. In the past this has been worth as much as a hundred pounds!

If someone else picks the same dead person, I make a draw.

If more than one person on the list dies, I used Google Trends (10 year worldwide average) to determine which is the MORE FAMOUS. And that will be the “winner”.

The new kid on the block is Harvey Weinstein with at least four entries on his name.

But it’s a strong month for the old favourites with Britain’s favourite not-dead-yet couple completely in command of the bulk of entries. In other words: Queenie and Phil Rule OK.

Dead Pool Latest: July 2017

An extraordinary entry this month: more than ONE QUARTER of the entries named Queen’s husband Prince Philip as the one likely to die.

If this happens its going to be one hell of a draw to find the winner. See what happened last for May when 2 people picked Roger Moore.

Dead Pool Line Up May 2017

Here are the names you chose to back for death on the #deadpool for May 2017.

Bigger font = more people choosing that name, so once again the front runners include Donald Trump who has been ‘popular’ on dead pool for many months now and Prince Philip who has had to retire despite not actually doing anything in the first place.

If you’re too knackered to even do fuck all… maybe it’s time?

Other top picks include Brucie, Kirky and Bush (Senior), as usual. There was fresh heat for piano player Elton John after his well-reported illness and Alex Ferguson has been picking up the votes so I guess he must have been on TV at some point, looking ropey.

Fun new entries this month include Angela Lansbury, Dennis Skinner (The Beast of Bolsover), Penelope Keith and Karem Abdul-Jabbar (the basketballer).
