Sunday Night Pleasure? See Quiz.

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Air Supply (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Man Ray (pic round)

Sunday is often a challenge for humans. Especially if there’s work the next day.

Scientists have been working on the problem and their findings are clear: IF YOU WANT PLEASURE ON A SUNDAY YOU MUST ATTEND A PUB QUIZ.

This is science. Best believe it.

Meanwhile here’s the wee cheaty bonus for reading my bullshit: an answer for tonight’s music round at the Percy:

Whoa. Sixty eight million views. Hardcore.

I have never had any interest in Air Supply beyond their occasional appearance as an answer on Popmaster. I’ve just looked them up on Wikipedia and I’m not really any more inspired. They’re mainly Australian. I didn’t know that.

Anyway – See you at the quiz tonight!

Yo!

Sunday, A Thrilling Chance To Beat Everyone Else

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

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

The quiz had lots of jackpot winners over the last seven days. so pots are down this week but happiness is high.

The only thing that could spoil the vibe is finding out what’s lurking in the music round at the Tolbooth Tavern tonight.

Yes, it’s Joss Stone:

I don’t like this song. Not my cup of tea, but I didn’t realise it was a cover of a White Stripes number.

I knew both songs but never noticed they were the same song until I read the youtube comments on the Joss Stone version.

We keep learning.

Tonight is your last Sunday chance to enter a Dead Pool. I took entries on Wednesday and Sunday and as well as the usual strong showing from Prince Philip, The Queen and Justin Bieber there was also a rush of “smart money” onto Demi Lovato.

Personally, I wouldn’t recognise Demi Lovato if she came to the front door selling mops. The news about her overdosing left me shrugging but I’ve looked her up and it seems she used to be on Barney and Friends and Disney Channel and then she was a pop singer and did all sort of telly. Her biggest hit in the UK charts was called ‘Heart Attack’ and, to be fair, isn’t great.

Just in case she DOES come to your door selling mops, Lovato looks like this:

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Mah Jong (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Julian Cope (music round)

Sunday. You can march along Princes Street for women’s rights in the afternoon then come to the quiz afterwards and win the money, blow those MEN out of the water.

Blue Fox Tuesday – Sometimes Invulnerable

Tonight’s cheat music is Julian Cope (for the Tolbooth Tavern) with an interesting take on suicide bombers. It’s titled: ‘All The Blowing-Themselves-Up Motherfuckers (Will Realise The Minute They Die That They Were Suckers)‘.

No official video as Cope in a not a bankrolled mega-artist, but someone has put the song to some footage from Afghanistan. Here’s a non-reality version if you would like to hear the song but avoid the gore:

If you ARE actually a suicide bomber, then don’t. All you do is kill people and make a mess. Everyone is sad and nothing gets fixed.

Come to the quiz instead and win booze and money! Everyone is happy and all problems are solved.

This Is Sunday, What A Sensation

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

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

Sunday Sunday. I’m up early but I can’t hang around here – I have to get ready for my legal battle with the trademarks people on Tuesday so I’m going to keep this brief.

Tonight’s cheat music is ONE OF THOSE BLOODY AMERICAN BANDS THAT SOUNDS ALL THE SAME

Apparently there was no official video for this. Someone’s made a lyric video on youtube. It’s all you really need.

Come to the quiz. You will find it delightful.

Sunday Edinburgh Pub Quizzes

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Ashford & Simpson (music round)

Here is the music round cheat for the Tolbooth. I used to like this song when I was a kid:

The guy’s got loads of soul glow and swaggering soul-knits. And leather trousers. He looks a bit like Barry White but less fat.

I don’t know whatever happened to Ashford and Simpson. But They look like emotional people. I bet they were as deeply affected by the death of Harambe as any of us.

I think my voice is nearly back to normal. Wednesday and Thursday were horrible. Sorry if you chose to sit through that.

Thanks for the various wishes of recovery, but If you really are worried about my health, the quickest way to get me back to fitness is to buy a deck of Cunto cards.

Thanks for that!

The cheat-music clip from the Tolbooth music round tonightis disco legends Chic. Check out the groove:

Sunday Pub Quizzes In Good Old Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Londonbeat (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Zimbabwe (pic round)

You’ll recognise the cheat-music clip from the Persevere music round tonight. It’s a 1991 super-classic:

Mental. Not as mental as anyone who bothered visiting Hampden the other night to witness the most inevitable 0-1 home defeat of all time.

 

I don’t even know why this is in my head. I’ve found it harder and harder and harder to give hoot what Scotland is doing in football as the years wear on. What’s that? 20 years ago now since France 98. Le sigh.

Don’t Go To Easter Road Tonight

THE JOKER AND THE THIEF 7pm :  JACKPOT £150, Cheat = “MONIE LOVE

THE BRASS MONKEY 9PM: JACKPOT £150, Cheat = “TRIPLE JUMP

There’s football at Easter Road tonight but we anticipate no problems whatsoever as I hear ticket sales are slack.

No surprise when you consider the offering is a poor Scotland team seeking to eke out a thin win in a godforsaken “friendly” match against a flimsy Canadian side who literally don’t know how to play the game, seeing as how all their energy is taken up with maple syrup and ice hockey and mooses.

Obviously, the usual die-hard no-matter-what nationalists* with red beards and kilts and all that will attend and they may be joined by some of the Canadian students who live in the city, out of curiosity.

But the time the match is over on this freezing March night, these students will be cursing their curiosity, wondering where their money went, and questioning why anyone would ever make a fuss about “soccer”.

They’ll never attend live football again. Why? Because friendlies are rubbish. So don’t go to Easter Road. Come to the quiz instead.

Good jackpots tonight by the way: £150 in both boozers. Win big and feel it.

The cheat clue for the Joker is Monie Love. It’s in the music round and the song in question is this:

*I voted Yes last time before you get all mental about that sentence. I might not this time though. Genuine don’t know.
