Monday Night Quizzes In Edinburgh – 14th Jan 2019

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

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

Where did the weekend go? Same place they all go: France.

It’s the of the only bits of Brexit I can support: at least we won’t have to send our weekends to the continent any more. Perhaps that extra time we get back will be worth all the hassle after all.

What hassle is that? Well, there was Polish guy in the Safari Lounge last week and he predicts that a “no deal” Brexit will result in cucumbers which cost three pounds.

Three quid? For a cucumber? Blimey: I can’t think about it.

Anyway, here’s the cheat music for tonight’s quiz at the Brass Monkey Leith. It’s from 1992 which almost automatically makes it amazing:

1992? Wow. Everyone was loved-up, raving and splendid.

Looking back at the stats now, you can see there was supposed to be a heavy economic recession in the early 1990s but to be honest, acid was £3 a tab, so we never noticed.

I don’t do drugs any more so the marking at tonight’s quiz will be competent. You don’t have to worry about that.

Yo,

Sunday 13th Jan 2019 – Sunday Quizzes

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Peter Howson (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: “Jane” (music round)

Sunday Sunday. So good to me.

Voice is better this week. Don’t be afraid of a croaky QM. Come quiz.

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

Obviously it’s Rod Stewart but the info you need is “Jane”. The round is looking for girls names that are in the song title.

Anyway, get yourself to the quiz and we’ll have some trivia-related and prize-based fun when you do.

Yeah.

Thursday 10th Jan – Quizzes Tonight In Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £90. Cheat answer: Roxette (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Real Madrid (pic round).

How’s ya diddlin? Quizzes tonight with the lion’s share being ready for jackpot snack attack in the back of Marchmont, the real deal, the ARGYLE.

Meanwhile here’s the cheat clip for tonight’s music round at the Argyle:

Holy hell. What a belter. This is soft rock from the past but, somehow, the future.

I cannae be bothered talking about politics any more. Thursday is now MOVIE Thursday where I use this blog to detail my ten favourite films of all time.

10. Flash Gordon (1980)

Literally the greatest film ever made.

So why have I put it at number ten? Cos it’s the first film I thought of and despite being the greatest film ever made I’m sure to think of something better next week, so I’ll stick it in at number ten and hope for the best.

There’s no point in choosing a film that I genuinely think isn’t the greatest film in the world. Every film on the list has to be that.

Anyway: Flash Gordon has got Vultan and his Hawk Men, Ming The Merciless, Dr Zarkov, Klytus, Prince Barin and a soundtrack by Queen.

It’s got the bit where Flash Gordon defeats the intergalactic imperial guard by the power of American Football

It’s got Peter Duncan out of Blue Peter being defeated by the wood beast and begging to be killed quickly.

It’s got the bit where Flash wrestles with Prince Barin on the spiky, tilty platform thing for which Brian Blessed has the remote control and they could fall off into space at any moment.

It’s got the bit where the Hawk Men recklessly attack war rocket Ajax to the heavy rock music sound of Brian May.

It’s got the bit where Flash crashes through the lightning field to destroy Ming’s wedding and finishes off the evil ruler of the Galaxy by impaling him right on the end of his rocket.

Jesus Christ. It is amazing.

I have one week to think of something better.

Thu 13th Dec, Pub Quiz Action in Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Gone With The Wind  (pic round)

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

The free answer for the music round at the Newsy tonight is Major Lazer I had to look them up but apparently they are a dance music trio from the USA. Fine. The song “features” Justin Bieber, so presumably that’s him doing the singing?

They sound like this:

Well, I just skipped through that and it is possibly one of the most meaningless videos I’ve ever viewed. But it includes Greek Islands, so it’s all right by me.

POLITICS THURSDAY

By the way- Thursday is now the day when I express my opinion on the crazy world of politics

This week’s point: FEMALE LEADERS ARE A GOOD THING.

All politics is a lie, but at least when the leader is female, my daughter (who is nearly 9 years old) can see that women can be at the top.

So, actual politics aside, I’d rather have a female country-boss and I wasn’t too dismayed to see Theresa May survive yesterday.

Even if she is a sneaky scrote and a savage Tory bastard of the first rank.

Disagree? Come and argue with me at the quiz.

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,

Dr P

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.
