Sunday 27th October

That’s it. The clocks have gone back and it’s sheer unrelenting misery between now and late March. Come and commiserate tonight at the quiz

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Lisbon (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Alice Deejay (music round)

Come and join in the fun tonight.

CHEATS

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

Real Europop

Alice Deejay was one of the high-points of Europop, like a trance queen, and this song is one of the jewels in the crown.

Unbeatable.

Anyway, I’m very short of time today so this post is SHORT. You’re a grown-up and you can handle this disappointment.

There’ll be more chat tomorrow.

See you tonight

Love,

Dr Paul

Wednesday Is Just Another Word For Winning

Quizzes tonight:

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

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

English: Wednesday

German: Mittwoch

Quiztalk: Day of Excellence and Winning

French: Mercredi

Greek: Tetárti

Great stuff eh? Ye cannae beat Wednesday in the same way that you cannot beat Brian Jacks at dips or squat-thrusts.

If you are under 40 you might have difficulty remembering what the hell squat thrusts are. Let me tell you, they were big business in the early 80s.

We were ALL doing squat thrusts.

Anyway: here’s the music clue for tonight’s quiz at the Joker & The Thief. It’s possibly the biggest load of shite of all time

The original was proper fantastic normal Europop but this turkey does his sad-business, spoils it and make a shitty video to go with it which is so heavy-handed it even washes everything out in blue because blue = sad.

This kind of over-obvious symbology along with what I call “the crying voice” are the reasons I cannae stand modern pop. Does my absolute nut in.

The worst bit is when you look at the youtube view count and you see a figure of nearly 300 million. All of those millions of people can’t be wrong… can they?

Maybe it’s me who is the wrong one. I guess we’ll find out before we die.

Here’s the advertorial.

I sell my utterly hilarious Cunto Cards in case you didn’t know.

You can always buy a deck from me tonight at the quiz and they are also available online.

If you want to try before you buy, the Joker and The Thief AND Brass Monkey on Drummond Street both have packs behind the bar you can borrow.

You can also follow Cunto Twitter for daily anti-cunto action.

Yo!

Midweek Wonderful

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £60 Cheat: Jack Black (pic round)

Can you believe it’s Wednesday already? Can you believe it’s February already? The seventh, for goodness sake.

The only way to deal with this is to hit the streets and start drinking.

If you’re anywhere near Leith Walk there are only three real options: The Spey Lounge, The Brass Monkey Leith and The Joker & The Thief.

The quiz isn’t on at the Monkey tonight and the Spey is for another day. Get yourself to the Joker tonight at 7pm for raw quiz mega action.

Oh, that’s the video for the song in the music round at the Joker. Classic Europop. In fact it came out in 2008 but sounds older. Could easily be the late 90s. Nice sound. Super cheap video.

Here’s me, brandishing more money than is actually available tonight. Nice shiny shirt, but.

Monday Pub Quizzes

Tonight – after the storm of money last week, we are back to normal.

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £50. Cheat: The music round includes Jam & Spoon. See vid below to hear the tune…

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat: One of the pic round answers is Greenland

I wouldn’t call my band ‘Jam And Spoon’ but then I have never come up with any towering, awesome, empowering and ballistic 1990s Europop either, so I’ll just shut the fuck up.
