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.

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:

Monday Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Andy Warhol (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Narcotic Thrust (music round)

The music round tune tonight was, according to the info on youtube, the winner of “Best Pop Dance Track,” at the 20th Annual International Dance Music Awards in 2004. Aye, it’s all right. The video has plenty of none-too-subtle pants shots in common with several dance videos from around the same time, notably Destination Calabria which also featured the arousing use of brass.

The picture answer for Brass Monkey tonight is Andy Warhol. Did you know he was shot in 1968 and survived (after a five hour operation to save his life)?

His would-be assassin was a writer named Valerie Solanas who had written the ‘SCUM Manifesto‘, detailing a world without men.

She said that she shot Warhol because she thought he was going to produce her play and steal the rights.

The judge said she was a nutter and locked her up for three years. Warhol is said to have lived the rest of his life in fear that she would shoot him again.

Don’t get caught up in this kind of drama in your own life tonight. Just come to the quiz.

No shooting.

Sunday Evening Pub Quiz Action, Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £180. Cheat: Daft Punk (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Vauxhall (pic round)

The music round cheat for the Persevere is daft Punk but doesn’t necessarily sound like Daft Punk. Not least because the bloke doing the singing is Paul Williams, better known as the guy that did the music for Bugsy Malone back in the 1970s

The whole song is over eight minutes long. That’s longer than Bohemian Rhapsody, although it has not attainend the same cultural impact.

There’s no way Ken Bruce would play this at the end of Popmaster. It’s too obscure. Not Steely Dan enough. Not Dire Straits.

Thanks for coming to the quiz tonight if you’re coming and, if you are coming, don’t be the ones that take the hump.

Great jackpots tonight!

Yo!

Wednesday Pub Quiz – Crying Gets You Nowhere

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Rufus Wainwright (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £60 Cheat: No Doubt (music round)

This time last week, England could still win the world cup. Today all we have is pub quiz team names like this:

Gareth Southgate's Tear Stained Waistcoat
Gareth Southgate’s Tear Stained Waistcoat

Crying gets you nowhere.

This also applies to protest. Last weekend’s anti-Trump stuff may have been amusing in a rattle-your-jewellery kind of a way, but it was essentially bleating.

Note to demonstrators – No one will take your protest seriously unless you smash things up. Making puns = zero change.

This has nothing to do with the quiz, it’s just my tuppenceworth.

More related to your chances of quiz success: here is a clip from tonight’s music round at the Brass Monkey Drummond Street:

I’ve heard this so many times that it gets samey, but just watching the video reminds me what a good song it is.

I remember when it came out, it was number one for ninety weeks and everyone was talking about how it was a breakup song between singer Gwen Stefani and the bass player. Pure Fleetwood Mac.

Anyway, world cup is over and No Doubt was the nineties. Come and experience modern times in the pub tonight. With the quiz

And, if you’re looking for the kind of foul-mouthed treat that only a theraputic hit like Cunto Cards can provide, I will have a couple of decks with me tonight. Stop me and buy one…

Monday Super Duper Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

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

The music round tune tonight is my favourite Eurovision from the last three years. It’s Bulgaria’s Poli Genova and we saw it live in Stockholm at the ESC in 2016. The place went mad – it’s a dance banger:

 

Monday night is the first night after the terror of the World Cup has lifted like a fog.

Celebrate by leaving the house and meeting real people in a real pub and playing the real quiz for real money.

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.

Tonight – Come and Win The Quiz

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Bullet For My Valentine (music round)

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

Here is the preview of one of the answers in the music round at tonight’s Brass Monkey Leith quiz:

Oh – it’s a wee bit thrashy.

I thought from their name that Bullet For My Valentine would be an Emo band. Well, there you go. Isn’t life just full of surprises?

It’s like when you go to Berlin and you realise you can still smoke inside the pub. Crazy.
