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.

Wed Quizzes – Oct 24th

Quizzes tonight: Come out and feel what others feel.

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Boney M (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £60 Cheat: Bassoon (pic round)

By the way, do yourself a favour and say “bassoon” out loud. It is very satisfying.

Here’s the music round cheat for tonight at the Joker. It is the greatest (Christmas) song ever recorded. Maybe except the Johnny Mathis one.

Totally great. Let’s get this Halloween pish oot the way. Bring on Christmas.

Come to the quiz and let love and brotherhood and peace reign all over the land.

Yeah,

Sunday: Persevere and Tolbooth Tavern

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

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

I was at the museum last week doing the Rip It Up quiz with Phill Jupitus. Good gig but I love my regulars so I’ve sent the Prof back to Australia and I am back on questions and answers tonight.

Here’s the music round cheat for tonight which pertains to the Tolbooth:

Well, a “stripped down version” in any case which means it doesn’t sound much like the actual recorded version of the song. Consider it an extra challenge to match the video with what you’ll hear in the music round tonight.

Anyway – remember to bring your mum tonight! It’s nowhere near mother’s day or anything like that – you should just take her to the quiz. She probably deserves it.

Yeah.

Wednesday Night Quizzes Tonight In Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight: Come out and play.

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £120. Cheat: Jermaine Stewart (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: Raleigh (pic round)

Nice pot at the Joker tonight – we’ve squeezed over the £100 mark. Come and win it. Come and smell Elm Row. It’s very pleasant.

The music round clue for tonight is for the Joker and it’s this song:

This was a straight-up, for-real, proper, genuine eighties classic. No disco was without this song in 1986. The sound, the groove. Cannae beat it.

Also, the song must be one of the few chart hits in history to reference cherry wine.

Can you even get cherry wine? Actually – you can. I found it in one search on drinksupermarket.com

I’m not going to order any, mind. It looks shite.

Anyway, come to the pub tonight. We have excellent booze at both pubs. See you tonight…

Yo!

Monday, Like A Smack To The Pus

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£150. Cheat: English  (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Cookie Crew (music round)

Hey! Rollovers have been a bit thin on the ground at the Brass Monkey Leith during August and September, so tonight is the first time we’ve hit £150 at that lovely boozer since June.

Celebrate this landmark by coming down and winning the money. Also, there is a rollover at the Safari which is “only” £60. OMG. First World Problems.

Anyway – to help you win at the Safarin here’s the Music round cheat:

Oh yes. This is the tune. One of my favourites of 87/88 and one of the first tunes where I realised that pop music was more about dance than poetry.

Proper No, so it is. The piano = mmmmm,

Thanks to everyone who supported the PROF last night while I was engaged in a large quiz at the National Museum on Chambers Street. Sounded like it went well.

By the way if you use reddit at all – check out this post and tell ’em!

Best places for a pub quiz? from Edinburgh

##########################

Remember: tonight’s pub quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double (and people do).

First one at the Brass Leith finishes at 8.30pm and the second one at the Safari Lounge begins at 9pm (although I don’t usually hit the first question until about 10 past or quarter past)

I might be on the bike tonight but if I’m getting a taxi  I’m always happy to give you a lift between the two places. Free of charge!

It’s Monday. Come On In.

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: The Departed (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat news: B-52s (music round)

The USA and the Philippines may be struggling with the aftermath of cyclones and hurricanes and all that business but because we live in ultra-reasonable Scotland, this is not an issue and should NOT prevent anyone coming to the quiz tonight.

If there are any weather or flooding or transport issues which DO prevent you from making it to the two entertainment centres tonight (the Monkey and the Safari) then let me know on Twitter.

Meanwhile, here is a cheat clue for tonight’s quiz at the Safari, it’s the The B-52s:

The song doesn’t start until 8.35 but I’ve linked to this video so you can see a couple of their other songs. They really are the greatest band in pop history.

But never mind the B-52s. You need to choose what you’re going to wear to the quiz tonight. Something shiny? Something checked? Make it work.

Wednesdays Are Back To Normal: 2 Quizzes Tonight

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Doom (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £120 Cheat: Queen (music round)

Wahey! All the festival wanks have boarded their over-crowded trains back to the rat-hub and left us once again to enjoy our city, ourselves.

My wife was up town last night for a while and said it was “so beautiful”. She specifically meant that all the tossers had departed.

More great news: Fest-end means that the Brass Monkey Wednesday night quiz is back in action. 9pm tonight on Drummond Street sees the return. Can’t wait. To make the return spicy, there is £120 in the pot already. Nice.

By the way, here is a cheat clue for tonight’s music round at the monkey. It’s Queen:

If you don’t normally watch the clips, this one might be worth your while. the video and audio are exceptionally high quality for 1981. Check it out.

And, if you’re looking for a gift for the arsehole in your life then hit me up for Cunto Cards which you can buy online or I will have a couple of decks with me tonight….

The Last Wednesday Where There Is Only One Quiz

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Quiz is off during the festival – Jackpot will be £120 when we start back NEXT WEEK

So the good news is that we are restarting the Brass Monkey quiz next week instead of waiting till September.

London will be receiving hundreds of trainloads of narcissistic wankbags this weekend and our city will breathe a sigh of relief like someone being let out of a Saudi jail.

Thanks for the money, now fuck off!

Then it’s just eleven months to go until the next upheavel.

That’s if the planet even lasts that long. I’ve been using Twitter more recently and fifteen minutes on that thing is enough to make you believe that EVERYTHING is irreparably broken.

Everyone is so upset. And yet, it’s compelling.

Twitter for me is summed up by things like the videos I found the other day of of a fur seal doing a Weinstein on a penguins.

Brutal and unrelated as this is, the comments soon turn the horror of nature into the outrage of politics. You can post a picture of a cake, a carrot, a rock or a roll and someone, somewhere will turn it into a blast of pure anger aimed at Corbyn / Trump / Islam / Israel / Tories / Libtards / Cyclists / Motorists / Smokers / Hipsters / SNP / Unionists

Anyway – I digress. What you really want to know is what’s the cheat song tonight?

It’s Jonah Lewie:

Nothing like a seasonal treat.

Also, if you’re still lacking, Cunto cards ,, you can get a deck off of me tonight. I usually have two or three packets with me at the quiz.

You can also get them online

August In Edinburgh. It’s Hell Get Me Out Of Here… Or Is It?

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Bad Company (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £150. Cheat news: Beastie Boys (pic round)

It’s hitting week three of the Fringe and everyone has had enough. Edinburgh is a nightmare. You can’t GET anywhere. You can’t get served anywhere without an enormous queue.

Well, not exactly.

Of course, the simple solution is that all you have to do is step OUTSIDE the city centre.

I knew a woman from Down South who once had a fringe show on Broughton Street, very near the Cask & Barrel, or whatever that big boozer is called (on the corner of London Street). I remarked that it was a good venue, city centre and she looked at me like I was mad.

As far as she was concerned, Broughton Street could have been the moon. She said NO ONE would come to her show – it was too far away.

So that’s the festival mentality: If it’s not EH1 then it can get tae fuck.

The upside of this is that the city remains relatively calm outside the bubble o’madness. So get yourself to Leith, get yourself to Abbeyhill if you need a break from the city centre crazies.

Come and do the quiz. And win things. And be happy.

Here’s tonight’s music round cheat which applies to the early quiz at Brass Monkey Leith:

Best youtube comment for this comes from someone called Kevin:

“Came for the song, stayed for the chest hair. Not gay.”

Tonight’s quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double.

First one at the Brass Leith concludes at 8.30pm and the second one at the Safari Lounge begins at 9pm (although I don’t usually hit the first question until about 10 past or quarter past)

Sunday Night Pub Quiz Scene

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Star Trek: Voyager (pic round)

As you know, it’s pishing with rain out there. Be careful when travelling to and from the quiz. Keep your arms inside the train. Walk don’t run.

It’s very late in the day, so I’m just going to cut straight into the free music round answer which relates to the Persevere:

The song is by Supergrass, an old Top of The Pops performance which sounds genuinely live.

See you at the quiz tonight!

Yo!
