Sunday Night Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Jean Michel Jarre (music round)

Here is the music round cheat info for the Tolbooth: a stunning clip of super-French-ness from the master of all things electronique, Monsieur Jean-Michel Jarre.

Listen very carefully, he will only play this once. (Unless you put the video on repeat).

Meanwhile , people keep asking me about Brexit, Russia and what it all means for the quiz.

Well, I put a report into the British Union of Analysts and asked them to prognosticate.

The bottom line is that Russians murdering their spies and Britain leaving Europe is set to have MINIMAL IMPACT on the quiz.

For this, we should all be grateful.

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!

Every One Hates The Beast

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Flute (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £150. Cheat answer: India Arie (music round)

The Beast From The East destroyed last Thursday so we are back, stronger, taller, faster, Scooter.

Here’s the music round cheat from tonight’s Newsroom quiz:

 

India Arie has a voice that is very smooth but a little bland, like well-made Ovaltine. Does anyone drink Ovaltine any more? Or is it just me in my Dickensian past?

Three minutes later….

A quick internet search reveals that people ARE still drinking Ovaltine. Well fuck me sideways.

Here’s some other Google searches for things people may or may not still be doing these days. How many of these have you done in the last week?

Sensational Jackpot Monday Night Edinburgh Pub Quiz Action

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: 200. Cheat: Chocolate Puma (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £210. Cheat news: Othello (pic round)

Absolutely loads of money on offer at the quizzes tonight. The kind of money that gets Warren Buffet greased and Elon Musk hard.

Be part of it. Say you were there and be ready to tell the story about the time you went to both Monday night Dr Paul quizzes, won both jackpots and cleared more than £400 in Great British Pounds.

Here’s the video for a clip from tonight’s music round at the Brass LEith. It’s from 2001 and sounds EXACTLY like 2001. I think it perhaps THE most typical track of 2001. Even more so.

Except may Rui Da Silva, DJ Pied Piper and Roger Sanchez

The first of those three links is particularly 2001 because it’s introduced by Gail Porter and she references Jamie Theakston.

I think the sample in the Rui Da Silva song is Spandau Ballet, but I can’t quite place it.

If I wasn’t a quizmaster I think I’d produce electronic dance music, mainly built around samples of Spandau Ballet, Simple Minds, and Duran Duran songs of the early 1980s. It sounds like a decent way to make money.

It also sounds like an easy way to make fuck all money. I think there are quite a few procuders of electronic dance music based on old pop. I think it’s a buyers’ market.

So I’ll probably stick to quizzes just now. And of course, Cunto.

What is Cunto? Cunto is like Top Trumps but the deck is stacked with utter cunts. It’s my new invention and you can buy a pack now.

Who’s in the deck? Donald Trump and 43 other prime cunts. That’s who

Sunday Night – Good Jackpots Are On Offer Tonight. Will You Be Tempted Out

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Moscow (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Heart (music round)

Both jackpots have reached a good level for tonight’s quizzes. Will you be tempted out of your nest and your Netflix and your solitude and your depression?

I thoroughly recommend making a social out of Sunday before the creeping darkness of loneliness overcomes you.

Here is the music round cheat info: a clip from tonight’s music round at the Tolbooth:

 

FACT: This pop video has more hair than the cat and dog home at Portobello. It is great.

By the way, if you see Phil Collins anywhere on the internet, remember to alert the authorities, as his campaign to control the mind of every living soul is gaining ground.

Whatever you do, don’t look him in the eye.

Turn away.

CANCELLED: Thursday Night Quiz Action In The Great Town of Edinburgh

UPDATE: TONIGHT’S QUIZZES NOW CANCELLED DUE TO STUPID WEATHER.

Image result for cancelled

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: The Editors (music round)

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

Phwooar. £100 at the Newsroom. Easy money! Don’t forget – Newsroom is the THICKEST PUB OF THE WEEK, due to the higher proportion of blow-ins and randoms rather than proper quiz teams. Come and take them on – take their money!

Meanwhile, here’s The Editors who look like they’ve just completed their course in reading gas meters and offering replacement ‘smart’ meters rather than a rock band. Just my opinion.

And they are very tiny, they live inside a lightbulb. This inspires no one. According to Wikipedia, NME labelled their sound as “dark disco“. Disco? Not much of a disco.

This is how white boys do real disco:

Monday Big Jackpot Monday

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £150. Cheat: Spinal Tap (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £180. Cheat news: Roy Orbison (music round)

Plenty of money on offer at the quizzes tonight. Come and roll the dice.

Here’s the Classic Roy Orbison song in the music round at the Safari tonight:

Some people think Orbison wore the shades because he was blind but he wasn’t blind, he could see just fine.

We were chatting about this the other week at the Monkey. I think it was with wild Orcadian/Shetland (whatever) Sandy whose theory was that Orbison without shades was a stunningly ugly prospect.

Image result for roy orbison no shades

This reminded me that Orbison was temporarily in the Travelling Wilburys supergroup, along with Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and George Harrison (until curtailed by death) and that this weird supergroup also contained Jeff Lynne, another musical genius who insisted on wearing shades all the time due to physiognomic unfortunateness.

Could this be the only supergroup of all time to include TWO members who wore shades at all times because of ugliness AND to have a box set of greatest hits reach number one in the UK Charts?

If only Norris McWhirter was alive. He’d know.
