Sunday Is Funday

Sunday was invented by Jesus and The Seven Dwarves to bring respite and pleasure to the masses. That’s you.

Come and experience this human bonus tonight at:

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: A band called Chvrches are in the music round. See video below to hear the tune.

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Your old pal Nelson Mandela is represented in the picture round.

The Chvrches are from Glasgow. To someone my age their songs sound like Depeche Mode crossed with Altered Images. Not bad likes.

Boozy Weegies Trump Capital Colleagues

I had a nice wee extra gig down in the basement of the Newsroom the other week doing a quiz for the staff of Thomson Solicitors.

The deal was that the staff from the Glasgow office came through to join their Edinburgh colleagues, so that opened up a convenient Glasgow v Edinburgh aspect to the quiz.

The final scores were Glasgow 38 – 27 Edinburgh and this heavy defeat was compounded by the fact that everyone from Glasgow managed to do this whilst five times as pissed.

Stereotypes are sometimes true 🙂

Old Skool Past Blasts at Newsroom

The Newsroom was nice and festival-busy on Thursday night. I swear there were some “famous” folk who I kind of half-recognised kicking about but that’s Edinburgh in August for you.

This mob were the winners:

Don't You Open That Trap Door

They took the”champagne” but more interesting from my point of view were some blasts from my murky old Glasgow quizzing past.

Legendary team THE BEAST APPRECIATION SOCIETY made the crossing:

The Beast Appreciation Society

There they are. Well two of them anyway: David O’D on the left and Gary “Gary” McGary on the right. The rest have returned to Norway or become deer-handlers or quizmasters or whatever.

Oddly enough, on the same night that the BAS cropped up, so did SABREFUCK although they are all grown up now and called themselves LETS GET QUIZZICLE.

Lets Get Quizzicle aka Sabrefuck

Sabrefuck used to do pretty-well-for-a-team-of-birds at Bar Radio in Ashton Lane, Glasgow and it was good to see them again (well, two original members again but hey…)

They have kept the quality going and made it into the final but unfortunately we had no winner of the money so we are playing for a ball-busting £20 next week. Fucking wow.
