Wednesday Was Built For You

Quizzes tonight:

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

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

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey:

 

It’s the greatest song ever written and the greatest video ever made. It’s the moment when Rod Stewart single-handedly broke the seventies into small pieces and created what we still call “the eighties.”

The youtube comments on the video seem to be an awful lot to do with Grand Theft Auto San Andreas.

One bloke says

"GTA on PS2... best time of my life"

– that’s the entire comment and it has 1400 likes.

Is it me or is that hugely sad? All these people? And playing a computer game was the BEST time of their LIFE?

It’s a cliche, but they NEED TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE.

You can get out the house tonight. At the q uiz. And maybe even out of your mind. If you do, that’s fine. I’m not your dad although, increasingly, I’m old enough to be so.

By the way, I had a bit of downtime but Cunto cards are back in stock and I will have a few decks with me tonight if you’re looking for a pack.

Thursday Night Quiz Action In Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

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

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

Herb Alpert is an old easy-listening favourite of mine from the Boudoir days.

One of his later, smoother works is in the music round at the Argyle tonight:

This is the kind of music you play when it’s just you and the candles. So smooth. Treat yourself nice. Draw the curtains and light the fire.

By the way – it is now ILLEGAL to be an arsehole in the park, so put out that BBQ and get yourself to the Argyle.

Monday Night Quiz Action and Reaction

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £150. Cheat news: Liverpool (pic round)

Great jackpots tonight. What’s not to love. Get to the quiz!

Cheat piece for the music round at the Brass Leith tonight, it’s Chicks on Speed:

I’ve always liked this song but I’ve just watched three or four Chicks on Speed videos on youtube and have decided I don’t like them as much as I thought I did.

They seem to be trying very very hard to be “ART” and “EDGE”.

I’ve not read about them and this might be a completely baseless judgement but I reckon they look like they started off life rich and, using this background platform of stability, are able to pursue “art” and shun commercialism.

Nothing inherently wrong with that. Fair play. But I think I prefer the commercial equivalent: something like Lady Gaga. It feels more honest.

Anyway, I’m sure Chicks on Speed don’t need me to validate them. I’m sure they’re enjoying their level of the fame monster just fine.

And they’re probably still more famous and more commerical than me, your favourite Edinburgh quizmaster.

Come to the quiz tonight and validate me. Win money.

Monday is great and brilliant and I should have some Cunto cards with me tonight just in case you’re looking for the best gift of 2018.

Monday Is The Best Quiz Day Of The Week

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

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

Great jackpots tonight. What’s not to love. Get to the quiz!

Cheat piece for the music round at the Brass Leith tonight, a female singer named Julia Michaels:

It’s a modern one, so it sounds kinda the same as lots of other modern hits, except with a lisp which appears to be her USP.

The “crying voice” used in these songs does my nut in. So many modern singers rely on tone of voice to convey the fact that they are sad.

I thought she looked British from the first minute or so but according to Wiki, she’s American. It doesn’t really matter but it’s funny how we need to know that sort of thing.

More interesting: she writes for others, including Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez. That might explain why she sounds a lot like them.

Monday is great and brilliant and I should have some Cunto cards with me tonight just in case you’re looking for the best gift of 2018.

Sunday Pub Quizzes On Tonight In Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Mars Bar (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Eddy Grant (music round)

Sorry if you were at the Persevere last Sunday when we were unable to go ahead with the quiz due to the large number of Hibees in the bar.

It was disappointing for me too but that’s just one of those things that comes with the territory but maybe we could crowd-fund a campaign to only have football played on Saturdays ONLY.

The good thing is that the pub agreed to make the jackpot a rollover, so we are up to £90 tonight. That’s cool.

Anyway, here’s tonight’s cheat item which relates to the music round at the Tolbooth Tavern

It’s Eddy Grant, the one where he’s got a raft rather than the one where he’s got a motorbike.

I like both. I might even play both tonight. Come to the quiz to win money and find out the happy or sad ending to this Eddy Grant whirlpool.

Yo!

Thursday Night’s All Right For Quizzing

Quizzes Tonight:

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

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £150. Cheat answer: Burning Man (pic round)

Tonight’s Thursday pub quiz action in the great town of Edinburgh offer you the sanctity of victory.

Not at all costs. We must remember that we are members of a civilization and at the moment our inner dragon commands murder, we must use our top-brains to resist such base urge.

Especially just to win a pub quiz. Jeez. Imagine being sent down for life imprisonment because you killed someone who was doing better than you at the pub quiz.

THINK!

IT’S NOT WORTH IT

Meanwhile, here is the cheat answer for the music round at Here’s their song that’s in the music round at the Argyle tonight:

It’s hoary old campaigner Beck, but back in the day when he was good. Bands and singers often go like that, you know: ace when young and shite later.

Not quizmasters – we get better as we get older.

I’ve posted some poor pop videos recently but this one’s great. All cut up and senseless. Nice.

See you at the quiz. Did you notice the jackpots tonight? £90 and £150. That’s decent.

Wednesday Quiz Wonder

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: City of God (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £150 Cheat: KT Tunstall (music round)

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey:

It’s KT Tunstall fae Scotland doing a song about being on the other side of the world.

Would the UK win Eurovision if they entered ‘proper’ artists like Tunstall?

Maybe not. Who knows. We tried Engelbert Humperdinck but he was so old-skool and old-hat that he could only come second-last.

I know most of you don’t care, but I’m still excited by this year’s Eurovision, even though it’s over for another year.

I am jealous of the Quiz Vanjie team who were in Lisbon for the week. Brilliant.

The one I like never wins, this year I liked France but they finished 13th. Shame. Quality song.

Anyway, I’m rambling and its nearly time for pop master, so let me finish with my favourite missing cat poster from last year…

A cat named Alan
“I ran away because you named me Alan”

 

Hope to see you at the quiz tonight

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Dashboard Confessional (music round)

Great jackpots tonight. What’s not to love. Get to the quiz!

Tonight’s music round cheat:

Dashboard Confessional is one of those American bands that, to me at least, sound all exactly the same. I’m unimpressed but if their your favourite band ever please don’t let me piss on your chips.

In return, I’ll hear nae shite about Eurovision. Deal?

Sunday Pub Quizzes In Old Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

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

Here is the music round cheat for the Percy. It’s Kula Shaker who were popular for fifteen minutes round about 1996. I always associate them with Tony Blair and Chris Evans. It was those kinds of times…

Nothing more to say today except wasn’t Eurovision great as usual? By the way I am so sick of people attributing UK failure to Brexit and saying things like “it’s all political”. Total nonsense. Here’s why:

1. It’s got nothing to do with Brexit. The UK has been getting shit scores for years, including before Brexit. Try putting in a good song.

2. It’s got nothing to with Brexit part 2. There are 43 nations participating this year and a third of them are not EU members anyway. Try putting in a good song.

3. It’s all politics. Yeah, how come Israel won? Everyone hates them more than they hate the UK. Thing is, they entered a good song.

Drives me nuts like, British people complaining about how the Eurovision is unfair. My idea would be to try putting in a good song.

Wednesday Pub Quiz Scene In Funky Bonnie Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: David Zowie (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £120 Cheat: George Michael (pic round)

It’s Eurovision week, so I can hardly think about the quizzes properly due to the proper Eurovision excitement.

Did you see the first semi-final last night? Fucking magic.

Anyway, Here’s the music round cheat info for the quiz at the Joker tonight: it’s a dance music song with a fairly standard dance music video. But the video DOES include a lauderette so ye cannae beat that.

I wonder if there’s a playlist anywhere on youtube that just has pop music videos which include a lauderette as a location?

Maybe.

It’s 2018 and things are reaching that point where if you can think of it then it already exists, thanks to old father internet.

 

When was the last time you disco danced in a launderette? For me, the answer would be “the early 90s”.

Hope to see you at the quiz tonight
