Wed 2nd January 2019 – Only One Quiz Tonight

Quizzes tonight:

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £150 Cheat: Badly Drawn Boy (music round)

The Joker is still closed for festivity or lack thereof so just the one quiz tonight and then as from tomorrow (Jan 3rd – the most wonderful time of the year) – everything is BACK TO NORMAL and I can return to an excellent mood. Plus, New Year is a reminder that it’s only 5 months to Eurovision, the true Christmas.

Anyway, there is a cracking £150 jackpot tonight at the Brass Monkey so come along and win.

Here’s tonight’s music round cheat clue:

I’ve never seen this but just watched it now. The video includes a young couple (with braces) who get locked together in a kiss and have to be driven to A&E by Badly Drawn Boy.

The video includes a caption at the end claiming the story is based on a true story from Mexico in 1994 where real teenagers really did get locked together in a kiss in their car and “caused a 10-mile tailback”

However, one or two minutes of Googling has found no evidence of this. Did it ever happen? I don’t know.

Anyway – Happy New Year – I hope you nineteen is legendary. See you tonight.

Yo,

Dr P

Wed 21st Nov – Quizzes Tonight

Quizzes tonight: Best jackpot of the week is tonight at the Joker

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £180. Cheat: Fleetwood Mac (music round)

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

Here’s the song which is in tonight’s music round at the Joker. This inside knowledge is the wee bonus you get for looking at the website or reading the email.

If you ever listen to Johnny Walker’s Sound of The Seventies on BBC Radio 2 then you’ll know this song because he appears to have a contract which includes a direct order to play something off of the Rumours album every single week until he dies.

The other thing he always always always plays is ‘Year of The Cat‘ by Al Stewart and I just hate that song.

It’s frustrating. The 70s contains some of my favourite music but Johnny Walker’s Sound of The Seventies on BBC Radio 2 mines from only the narrowest seam of easy-going white-man rock.

Nothing wrong with a bit of easy-going white-man rock but the show needs some flavour mixed in. I can’t listen to it.

Here’s a picture of Johnny Walker who hosts Johnny Walker’s Sound of The Seventies on BBC Radio 2:

And I can’t stand his voice. That’s another red line.

Anyway – none of this is relevant. The only thing that matters is COME TO THE QUIZ.

Wednesday Delight – Evening Pub Quizzes for Your Delight

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: James Franco (pic round)

Tonight sees the final quiz at Brass Monkey Drummond Street until September. The Monkey is situated right in the heart of the festival maelstrom and it means the bar is too transient to achieve quiz during August. Come along tonight to win the cash: £90

All other quizzes continue as normal during the great annual disruption.

Tonight’s music round cheat bonus at the Joker & The Thief is Ashanti and she sounds like this:

Everyone is falling out with each other in the video. It’s like one giant bad mood.

High production values though, like a movie…

Dead Pool resumes tonight, taking entries for August droppers…

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 last week. Yeah:

Cunto!

Up The Peak Of The Week

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £180. Cheat: Gomez (music round)

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

Don’t stay inside crying. Come out to the pub tonight and win all the moneys.

Just think: £180 at the Joker. Sweet and nice. This could alleviate a power-bill problem or if all is sorted on the bills front, you could buy yourself a wee day out to Newcastle on the train and have plenty of money left to get pished when you arrive there.

You know, to fit in.

This might help: the cheat tip for tonight’s music round at the Joker. It’s Gomez who were popular for a short time round about 1999.

And when I say “popular”, what I mean is that this song got to number 21 in the charts and was more or less their biggest hit.

The video is a good idea – a recreation of the old health and safety films that used to fill up the gaps on TV between ‘Mister Benn’ and ‘Nationwide’.

Quality concept.

Anyway remember the wisdom: if you can possibly arrange it, bring someone older and someone younger to the quiz to be on your team. It’s one thing that an really make a difference to your score.

Quizzes Tonight – Wednesday Night In Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Glaxo Smith Klein (pic round)

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

Big jackpot at the Monkey last week means minimum amount tonight.

Still loads of great fun to be had and I have now taken delivery of Cunto Cards so you can buy a pack off me tonight, directly.

Meanwhile, here is one of the music round pieces from the Monkey tonight. It’s from one of my favourite bands, Slade.

When I was a kid and first into pop music at the start of the 1980s, Slade were yesterday’s men, comedy characters from the dim and distant mid-nineteen-seventies.

You knew their songs, they’re ‘oldies’ were always on the radio. And you knew they were wacky: the bloke with the mirrors on his top hat and the gurn. The daft looking-cunt on guitar. Song titles with funny spelling. For instance: Skweeze Me Pleeze Me. A ha ha ha. So hilarious.

You knew them primarily for ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’ which was virtually the British national anthem at that time. Literally everyone’s favourite song. No exceptions.

Then, just as they were in danger of becoming a ‘national treasure’ they bucked their own legacy and had a string of 1980s hits which were slightly less energetic than the 70s numbers but still had plenty of powerful pop quality.

This is one of them.

Come out and win tonight. Go on. Come and have feel.

Yo!
