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.

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!

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.

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!

Wednesday – Only One Wednesday Quiz Per Week During August

Quizzes tonight:

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

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

So last week was a disaster at the Joker – with minute to go before quiz time, the electricity blew up and the pub was snookered.

The power is back on and you will now hear last week’s intended quiz, tonight!

The music round hint for tonight is one of my all time favourite bands: Roxy Music. The sound on this video is shite, but it’s still a great song:

You cannae beat the Roxy.

Meanwhile, Cunto cards continue to fly. If you want a packet of the game that’s rocking the nation, hit me up – I usually have two or three packets with me at the quiz.

You can also get them online

Look at the happy people playing Cunto at the Joker the other week. Yeah:

People playing Cunto
Cunto!

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Leonardo da Vinci (pic round)

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

Again, lots of jackpots getting won in the last week, so low jackpots tonight.

Aye. Gabrielle. Heigh ho. I have nothing to say about this at all.

See you at the quiz tonight!

Thursday Night Pub Quiz Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Jessica Simpson (pic round)

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

NOTE: We are UPSTAIRS tonight at the Argyle Bar (i.e. the ground floor instead of the cellar)

Hey. If you’re a visitor to the city then welcome. I hope you’re having a great time.

Just do us a favour and don’t be a prick.

Also, make sure you check out local culture as well as the “Fringe”. In other words, come to the quiz tonight. Unlike all that Fringe pish, you can actually win some money.

For reading this post you get a wee bonus which is a cheat answer for tonight (see top info). The music round clue tonight is Pulp. The song sounds like this:

The video includes the technique of little kids playing young versions of the band members.

Innovative huh? Well yeah, but of course Queen had done it nine years earlier with ‘The Miracle’

Sheer quality.

Anyway, don’t bring kids to the quiz tonight. Leave them at home, get a babysitter. Get pished. Start a fight.

Yeah. Also, remember to stop me and buy a packet of Cunto Cards  if you’re looking for that special gift for the foul-mouthed fiend in your life.

Monday Night Pub Quiz Action, Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Dexy’s Midnight Runners (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Snow Patrol (pic round)

Come to the quiz. You might meet the love of your life. It’s happened before. People who meet at the quiz sometimes get married.

This is not a warning or a threat. I’m just saying.

Meanwhile: tonight’s music round free answer is for the Brass Monkey Leith where the music round will contain a clip of this song by Dexy’s Midnight Runners:

The picture answer for Brass Monkey tonight is Snow Patrol who are described by Wikipedia as a Northern Irish band but a quick sketch through their page reveals that a large part of the band’s history took place in Scotland, as they were formed in Dundee and lived in Glasgow as they tried to break through.

It’s a good story of persistence and showbiz and worth a read, even if you’re like me and think their music is dishwater.

Last chance to enter August Dead Pool is tonight. Don’t miss.

Thursday Celebration – Quizzes Are Go

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £180. Cheat answer: Iran (pic round)

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

Massive win for the RUBBER GUN SQUAD last week at the Newsroom when they won £300 so we’re back to £50 there tonight.

This means the jackpot of the week now switches to the Argyle Bar where £180 is on offer.

Dead Pool for August is live. I took the first entries last night and there were at least a couple of entries for Zimbabwe’s favourite bawbag, Robert Mugabe.

Could the tyrant’s time be up?

Meanwhile, here’s a look at the Newsroom music round cheat clip for tonight. It’s everyone’s favourite singer, Alvin Stardust, who ruled the seventies like a benign leather dictator.

The video features Alvin Stardust and his trademark glove, a glove which brought terror to children watching the telly in the seventies. Alvin often had this schtick where he was “mean” and didn’t smile. It scared some people.

Sometimes he dropped it and was the nice guy. If you have nine minutes on your hands, you should check out his appearance on the Wheeltappers and Shunters.

This is Peak UK Seventies. Includes a section where Stardust mercilessly teases one helpless woman with THE GLOVE and is then chased off stage by another, more forward, woman in her quest for the OTHER GLOVE.

They literally don’t make them like that anymore.

Yeah. Also, remember to stop me and buy a packet of Cunto Cards  if you’re looking for that special gift for the foul-mouthed fiend in your life.
