Monday Is The Best Quiz Day Of The Week

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Julia Michaels (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat news: Canola (pic round)

Great jackpots tonight. What’s not to love. Get to the quiz!

Cheat piece for the music round at the Brass Leith tonight, a female singer named Julia Michaels:

It’s a modern one, so it sounds kinda the same as lots of other modern hits, except with a lisp which appears to be her USP.

The “crying voice” used in these songs does my nut in. So many modern singers rely on tone of voice to convey the fact that they are sad.

I thought she looked British from the first minute or so but according to Wiki, she’s American. It doesn’t really matter but it’s funny how we need to know that sort of thing.

More interesting: she writes for others, including Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez. That might explain why she sounds a lot like them.

Monday is great and brilliant and I should have some Cunto cards with me tonight just in case you’re looking for the best gift of 2018.

Wednesday Pub Quiz Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Open Water (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: Architects (music round)

Big jackpot got won last week at the Joker by the SPECKIES, so well done to them and it means that our biggest jackpot tonight is at the Monkey. Ninety pounds on offer.

Here’s the cheat tip for the Monkey, it’s some rotten old pop garage thing from 2000. You don’t hear stuff like this very much these days except in Dr Paul Quiz music rounds

Meanwhile, I listed the May dead pool entries this morning. Have a look at the post for more detail, but basically all the smart money has moved onto George Bush Sr. (the older, less dippit of the Bush prez duo)

Hope to see you at the quiz tonight

Monday Monkey and Safari

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£100. Cheat: ZZ Top (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Liverpool (pic round)

Hey. Come out and win the cash tonight. First rollover for a while at the Brass so we offer you £100 tonight.

Get your fist round it.

Meanwhile, here’s the video which reveals the cheat clue for tonight’s music round at the Brass Monkey Leith:

It’s got 42 million views so you’ve probably already seen it.

It’s possibly the most standard modern pop song I’ve ever seen. It’s got  cars and Taio Cruz is singing about how he likes a girl who has a body “like a rock guitar”.

Really?

Another hundred-percent-predictable feature is the youtube comments which all say “thumbs up if you’re watching this in 2018” while none of them question Cruz’s “rock guitar” analogy.

Tasty Sexy Wednesday Night Out At The Quiz

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £150. Cheat: The Ting Tings (music round)

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

Shaka Zulu! We’re up to £150 at the Joker and one of the star attractions at the Joker is seeing boss-man Roddy’s face at the moment we find out if its a rollover (boyish delight) or a jackpot (raging scowl).

Don’t miss his involuntary reaction tonight!

Meanwhile come and see what’s gong on at the Monkey. The new manager has thinner legs than the old one but, apart from that, things seem to progressing normally. There are still plenty of beers and plenty of students strung out on couches through the back like some kind of weird 1969 Amsterdam scene.

Here’s the music round cheat for tonight (which applies to the Joker). It’s the Ting Tings:

 

I like the song and I like the video. Both are catchy and simple, it’s the kind of thing we should be sending to Eurovision (LESS THAN A MONTH TO GO)

Excitement!

Yo!

Thursday Jackin’ – Jackin’ The Quiz

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Japan (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Zedd (music round)

Thursday has dawned like a fat boy at a buffet.

Don’t get beat to the cheeses. Don’t let him grab all the ham. Snatch a sausage roll from under his sniffy fatty snout right now, before they all get grabbed. Run!

That was a trifle fattist. Whoa! don’t mention trifle.

Anyway, here is the cheat clip from tonight’s’ Newsroom music round. It sounds like modern pop music in such a pre-fabricated way that it might well have been written by an algorithm.

Algorithms might one day be sophisticated enough to emulate Jethro Tull but the Tull will have always been the ones to do it first.

Fuck the robots.

Quizzes Tonight – Wednesday Night In Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Glaxo Smith Klein (pic round)

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

Big jackpot at the Monkey last week means minimum amount tonight.

Still loads of great fun to be had and I have now taken delivery of Cunto Cards so you can buy a pack off me tonight, directly.

Meanwhile, here is one of the music round pieces from the Monkey tonight. It’s from one of my favourite bands, Slade.

When I was a kid and first into pop music at the start of the 1980s, Slade were yesterday’s men, comedy characters from the dim and distant mid-nineteen-seventies.

You knew their songs, they’re ‘oldies’ were always on the radio. And you knew they were wacky: the bloke with the mirrors on his top hat and the gurn. The daft looking-cunt on guitar. Song titles with funny spelling. For instance: Skweeze Me Pleeze Me. A ha ha ha. So hilarious.

You knew them primarily for ‘Merry Christmas Everyone’ which was virtually the British national anthem at that time. Literally everyone’s favourite song. No exceptions.

Then, just as they were in danger of becoming a ‘national treasure’ they bucked their own legacy and had a string of 1980s hits which were slightly less energetic than the 70s numbers but still had plenty of powerful pop quality.

This is one of them.

Come out and win tonight. Go on. Come and have feel.

Yo!

Thursday Barely Matters. It’s YOU Who Counts

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Orange Juice (music round)

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

Roles reversed from last week. Big jackpot at the Newsroom now. LARGE.

Meanwhile, here’s the Orange Juice tune from tonight’s music round at the Argyle:

Orange Juice. Wow. Remember them? Almost all of you WON’T, as you’re under 40. They, along with Altered Images and maybe Aztec Camera were branded ‘The sound of Young Scotland’.

This was the early 80s, a wee Scottish paradise time when there were still jobs in big places that made things and everyone lived like the people in ‘Gregory’s Girl’. It was usually summer and even in Scotland there were warm nights.

At the time, all the middle class boys who were SLIGHTLY older than based their look on Edwyn Collins, singer of the Orange Juice. They continued to base their look on Collins then, and forever since.

These men are now about 50 years old. Some of them might be at the quiz tonight.

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.
