7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Felix (music round)

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

If you’re worrying about Brexit, don’t.

Everything is going to be OK.

And if you are genuinely worried, ask yourself what the worse is that could happen?

Maybe you get deported. Hey – that’s just another word for taking a sabbatical.

Maybe your wife could be deported? Well, we can all dream.

In the meantime the only certainy is that if you don’t come to the quiz then you can’t win the quiz.

This is the kind of step–by-step thinking that’s going to get us through the hard times together. Come, let’s dance.


Speaking of dance, tonight’s music round at the Joker includes the a nineties dance pop classic by Felix.

Listen to this all the way through and I challenge not to rave, at least for half a minute.

Eighties culture UK

Actually – I tihnk it’s a live vocal – it doesn’t sound exactly like the record. But all the way, either way – it’s all good.

Do remember what it was like to first properly rave? Freed to dance -seemingly in eternity. Smoke machines. No booze. Great stuff.

See you later,

Thu Nov 8 – Quizzes Tonight

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: “Bombay Bicycle Club” (music round)

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

So, Halloween’s just out the way but just when you think there’s a bit of clear water and a bit of blue sky, there’s Hugo in the Monkey

Hugo only appears in Edinburgh when there’s big events work to be done, we saw him a few months ago when it was the festival.

“All right Hugo – to what do we owe the pleasure? Why are you in town?”


Aaaaaaaagggggh. Bastards. Can someone organise a movement to cancel Christmas? I’ll sign the petition.

Anyway, here’s the music round cheat for tonight which is for the Argyle Bar:

Bombay Bicycle Club? Not my cup of tea. A bit Lib-Dem, a bit of a bed-wetter tendency.


Incidentally – Thursday is now the day when I express my political opinion on this blog.


Are you Leave or Remain?

Poppy or No Poppy?

Cybernat or Onionist?

Liberal or Racist?

These simplistic 50/50s seem to be everywhere these days and while people expend their political energy working out what camp their in and then shouting at the other camp, any ideas to actually fix things get forgotten and dusty.

As the population rips itself to bits with thrashing right/wrong arguments in the simplest possible terms (which go nowhere), the elites continue to stockpile money, power, and the means to survive when the flood comes.

The rest of us will drown and will still be arguing the meaning of Brexit as Britain itself disappears beneath narwhals.

Maybe we should accept whatever poppy someone is wearing or not wearing and get back to destroying the privilege of the wealthy.
