Monday Edinburgh Pub Quizzes – Tonight

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat news: Ulster (pic round)

It’s raining. Better head to the pub.

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)

The music cheat for tonight is for the Brass. It’s Japan, even though it sounds very much like Duran:

A good proportion of the youtube comments remark on the physical beauty of the singer: David Sylvian. That was about 35 years ago.

He looks like this now:

At least he hasn’t got fat.

Thursday Pub Quiz – Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Van Morrison (music round)

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

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

The festival roars on with its collection of wannabes, superstars, locals, tourists and wankers.

Remember, if you’re going to drink with all kinds of people you deep-down hate, its best to win a bit of quiz cash first.

Come to the quizzes tonight and fill your drinking wallet with some folding…

By the way, here’s tonight’s music round cheat which is for the Argyle at 7pm:

That’s got twang. Generally I can’t be bothered with Van Morrison but this is a tune.

===========================================

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.

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!

Wednesday Quizzes Only Half Disrupted by England football

Quizzes tonight:

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

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

The England football team (men’s) have played themselves into a World Cup semi final and it’s on at the same time as the Joker quiz tonight.

For some of you, this won’t matter at all, but for others it’sa big big deal.

If it’s a big big deal then you probably don’t want to come to the quiz. We’ll have it on the tellies but with the sound down and the quiz going ahead.

So if you really need to hear those bigoted, biased commentators then we’re not the pub for you.

As far as everything else, tonight is a normal Wednesday.

Here’s a sneak look at one of the music round answers for the Joker & The Thief tonight:

It’s the Minds, daein’ Minds things. Sexy.

Reading the comments on every single video featuring early Simple Minds is the same. People saying “whoooaaar – they used to be really good before they became stadium shite.”

I can see what they mean but I still liked ‘Ghostdancing‘ when it came out.

Also, by the way, Cunto Cards are back in stock and I will have a few decks with me tonight if you’re looking for a pack.

This Is Thursday. It’s Time To Quiz It

Quizzes Tonight:

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

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £200. Cheat answer: Malta (pic round)

The Newsroom provides the biggest jackpot of the Dr Paul week tonight: £200 up for grabs.

The Newsroom was dead last week – so come and capitalize on the summer vibe and win DA MONEY

Here’s the music round cheat for the Argyle Bar:

It’s Aaliyah who died at the age of 22 in  plane crash in the Bahamas.

Disaster.

If she had lived she could have been a judge on X-Factor or something.

The song is good – like a cross between Janet Jackson and TLC. The Bass moves everywhere and, listening to it now, I just noticed that it references I Know You Got soul by Erik B & Rakim – proper old school.

The video is also very Janet Jackson with lots of co-ordinated movements between dancers, all in some kind of showroom for garden water features (night theme).

For dying so young, Aaliyah properly left her mark.

Wiki says ” She is listed by Billboard as the tenth most successful female R&B artist of the past 25 years and 27th most successful R&B artist in history“.

Not bad. Just a shame about the airplane crash. She’s in good company though.

Make Your Thursday Night A Quiz Triumph

Quizzes Tonight:

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

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £100. Cheat answer: Simply Red (music round)

Thursday offers you the chance for sexy underground vibe in Marchmont or upfront street cocktail action at the Newsy. Both are terrific beyond comprehension.

If you’re coming to the quiz tonight, be aware of the cheats mentioned in the details above. It’s like a free answer.

Here is the cheat clip for tonight’s Newsroom music round.

It’s Simply Red who used to dominate the UK Singles Chart like Google dominate search. This was one of their most memorable hits:

In fact, it was their first hit and it made Mick Hucknall a star and ginger-haired sex-symbol.

It’s a cover version. The original is American and has a hefty, sleazy-funk edge. Is it better? That’s up to you.
