Sunday 8th September

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £180. Cheat: Liberal Democrats (pic round)

The Tolbooth Jackpot jackpot rocket went boom last week with £180 to the Porn Dwarfs and that means that once again the Percy has the largest Sunday Jackpot.


By the way, here’s the audio cheat for tonight which refers to the music round at the Persevere:

It’s White Lies who are English but they went to Russia to shoot their video for this song and it creates quite an atmosphere of freezing bleakness and despair

Although, to be honest, they might have been cheaper just going to Falkirk in February for exactly the same effect.

I’ve just looked up their band on Wikipedia and it’s one of those bands that you’re surprised are still together, five albums later, despite the fact that fewer and fewer people buy the records

The highest chart positions of their albums, in order of release, are: 1, 3, 4, 11, 14.

I’m no stock-market analyst but this points to a downward trend. Who will back them to make the top 20 with their next release?

When will they give in and become producers or teachers or quite music altogether and retrain as finance brokers?

Cos if they keep punting the music they’ll end up as unsuccessful as me and David McGeorge

I don’t know and to be honest I’ll probably never think about them again after I get to the end of this sentence.

Well done to the Porn Dwarfs last week who finally claimed the big pot at the Tolbooth Tavern. Winning £180 is always emotional.

This is what we live for.

See you at the quiz tonight!

Anyway – none of that attitude at the quiz tonight. Great riches await. See you there!

Wed 6th Feb – Midweek Quiz Fab

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Panic At The Disco (music round)

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

Keeping it brief today. Running late. Here is the free answer music clue, it’s for the Joker at 7pm:

I have no idea what the feller in the video is singing about. He seems upset. If you know, tell me – although I’m not sure if I will care. Hey it’s just pop music.

Which reminds me – I’ve been listening to lots of opera this week and have come to the conclusion that opera is early pop.

The melodies are simple and compared to other ‘classical’ or orchestral stuff, opera is packed with head shakers and dancefloor bangers.

Or … the equivalent of dancefloor bangers from 140 years before the actual 1990s which, of course, is when dance floor bangers became de rigeur.

So brush up on your Verdi and Puccini, they may well be appearing in the music rounds in the next few months.

See you tonight.
