Monday 21st October

Quizzes Tonight:

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

7pm – Portobello Tap. Jackpot: £180. Cheat: Kick-Ass (pic round)

9pm – Argyle Bar Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Krs-One (music round)

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


Here are the music round cheats for tonight

The first is for the Argyle Bar:

KRS-One, proper old school

It’s KRS-One. That’s not his real name. And I always thought his real name was Chris but I’ve just looked it up and it turns out his full real name is Lawrence ‘Kris’ Parker.

So even the Chris or Kris bit is a nickname. Those hip-hop fellows and their tricky ways.

Which makes me suddenly wonder is Ludacris’s real name is maybe also not Chris, like I always assumed.

So having looked it up, Ludacris’s real name is Christopher Brian Bridges.

There. That’s more sensible.

Meanwhile the Safari music round will contain this song by The Fratellis:

Classic video move – get the girls in.

In a classic move to get the video noticed, The Fratellis have populated it with young women wearing stockings and other sexy gear.

I have never used such low tactics at the quiz.

It’s questions, answers, prizes, that’s what you come for and I can’t imagine the turnout would be any higher if I started kicking about in sussies.

I mean: never say never, but it’s unlikely.

See you tonight.

£60 jackpot at O’Connor’s tonight

Kerry is back tonight at O’Connor’s – the new pulsing nite-spot (and day-spot) on the North Central Edinburgh scene.

The food is great at O’Connor’s so get your dinner and do the quiz.

Dinner is not mandatory, just an option.

No cash winner last week so it’s a rollover and tonight’s cash jackpot will be £60. Make it yours!

Cheat News

Here is the video so you can listen to the song for tonight’s cheat answer, which is your old pal Queen Latifah:

The word Unity, but with stops

Does U.N.I.T.Y. stand for something seeing as how it has the dots? Or is it just the word ‘Unity’ but in a spelled-out style?

A quick deek at the lyrics makes me think that she’s just spelling it out. I can’t see any acronyms or abbreviations.

Here’s a sample of the lyric:

U.N.I.T.Y., U.N.I.T.Y. that’s a unity (You gotta let him know)
(You go, come on here we go)
U.N.I.T.Y., Love a black man from (You got to let him know) infinity to infinity (You ain’t a bitch or a ho)

Instinct leads me to another flow
Everytime I hear a brother call a girl a bitch or a ho
Trying to make a sister feel low
You know all of that gots to go
Now everybody knows there’s exceptions to this rule
Now don’t be getting mad, when we playing, it’s cool
But don’t you be calling out my name
I bring wrath to those who disrespect me like a dame
That’s why I’m talking, one day I was walking down the block
I had my cutoff shorts on right cause it was crazy hot
I walked past these dudes when they passed me
One of ’em felt my booty, he was nasty
I turned around red, somebody was catching the wrath
Then the little one said (Yeah me bitch) and laughed
Since he was with his boys he tried to break fly
Huh, I punched him dead in his eye and said “Who you calling a bitch?”

So it’s about domestic violence. Anyway, on a cheerier note, winning the quiz feels like riding a giant golden turtle to infinity.

Winning quiz feels like riding a golden turtle. Legit.

So come to the quiz tonight. 9pm at O’Connor’s

you owe it to yourself.

Monday Monday Pub Quiz Time

Big £150 winner last week at Brass Leith so basic tonight but good rollover at Safari:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £50. Cheat: One of the answers in the picture round is Ophelia.

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat news: one of the answers in the music round is Afrika Bambaataa. See vid below to hear the tune…

Well, there’s no actual video but you can hear the song. This is 1999 and Afrika is a big name in hip hop but he’s never been mainstream so videos are a bit thin on the ground. Quality tune though.
