Wednesday Delight – Evening Pub Quizzes for Your Delight

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: James Franco (pic round)

Tonight sees the final quiz at Brass Monkey Drummond Street until September. The Monkey is situated right in the heart of the festival maelstrom and it means the bar is too transient to achieve quiz during August. Come along tonight to win the cash: £90

All other quizzes continue as normal during the great annual disruption.

Tonight’s music round cheat bonus at the Joker & The Thief is Ashanti and she sounds like this:

Everyone is falling out with each other in the video. It’s like one giant bad mood.

High production values though, like a movie…

Dead Pool resumes tonight, taking entries for August droppers…

Meanwhile, Cunto cards continue to fly. If you want a packet of the game that’s rocking the nation, hit me up – I usually have two or three packets with me at the quiz.

You can also get them online

Look at the happy people playing Cunto at the Joker last week. Yeah:

People playing Cunto
Cunto!

Yo!

Monday Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Andy Warhol (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Narcotic Thrust (music round)

The music round tune tonight was, according to the info on youtube, the winner of “Best Pop Dance Track,” at the 20th Annual International Dance Music Awards in 2004. Aye, it’s all right. The video has plenty of none-too-subtle pants shots in common with several dance videos from around the same time, notably Destination Calabria which also featured the arousing use of brass.

The picture answer for Brass Monkey tonight is Andy Warhol. Did you know he was shot in 1968 and survived (after a five hour operation to save his life)?

His would-be assassin was a writer named Valerie Solanas who had written the ‘SCUM Manifesto‘, detailing a world without men.

She said that she shot Warhol because she thought he was going to produce her play and steal the rights.

The judge said she was a nutter and locked her up for three years. Warhol is said to have lived the rest of his life in fear that she would shoot him again.

Don’t get caught up in this kind of drama in your own life tonight. Just come to the quiz.

No shooting.

Monday Satisfaction

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Chesterfield (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Roxy Music (music round)

No football to ruin everything tonight, so let’s take this moment to feel our good selves right and release the inner trivia god that lurks within us all.

The music round at the Safari tonight includes this all time glam bang:

There is nothing as good as Roxy Music. They are the greatest band of all. Apart from maybe Queen or ABBA. But you know what I mean.

The full version of the song is worth watching. They really go for it.

Monday Night Pub Quiz Action

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £90. Cheat news: Pink Floyd (pic round)

So the big bucks went last Monday and we return to £50 at the Brass Monkey but £90 is still pumping at the Safari. It’s all good.

Here’s the cheat source for Brass Monkey Leith:

This is what hip hop sounded like in 1990 and I still prefer it to (most) of the modern stuff.

Classic sound.

By the way, the early quiz at the Brass Monkey Leith co-incides with the England game (football world cup).

The pub WILL show the game, with the sound down, so you can enjoy England getting pumped off of Tunisia while you win the quiz. What a night out.

Football does not interfere whatsoever with the Safari, the England game is the last for today.

By the way 2018 deck of Cunto Cards are back in stock so stop me and buy one if you want to get in on the action.

Monday Night Pub Quiz Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club (music round)

A hundred and fifty quid? You could get a new kitchen for that probably, I don’t know, I’m not really in the market for kitchens.

Here’s the cheat source for Safari:

This is the straightest white man rock and roll possible. The sort of band that people like when they’re terminally afraid of showing any love for Eurovision pop just in case they catch the gay.

Doesn’t make the tune bad though, it’s nice. Good rock and roll. But don’t forget to bop to the pop too.

Rock makes you strong. But pop makes you great.

Why Is Phil Collins “The Beast” Anyway?

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

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

Hey! A hundred quid at the Brass Monkey on Leith Walk tonight. Come and win.

Cheat piece for the music round at the Brass Leith tonight, it’s Depeche Mode:

I grew up listening to Depeche Mode and was always pretty sure this song is about either class, control or BDSM, I’ve never been quite sure which. This is the first time I’ve ever seen the video and it does nothing at all to clear things up.

I guess it’s about all three. Didn’t expect to see Greenham Common in there though…

So why is Phil Collins (star of tonight’s Safari Lounge picture round) known as THE BEAST?

Well, it’s a list of alleged crimes which include but are not limited to:

  • Taking all the money from Live Aid, thus…
  • Ensuring that Africa still starves to this day.
  • Divorcing second wife BY FAX.
  • Controlling the world’s tsunamis from his underwater headquarters in a lake in Switzerland.
  • Riding his bike through red lights.
  • Conducting a covert war against the poor of the Brazilian favelas using his own private security force.
  • Murdering orphans
  • Created Ebola virus in his Swiss lab
  • etc

What a bastard. In fact even if half of these things are true, it would still make him a Cunto, and that explains why he’s in the 2018 deck of Cunto Cards.

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.

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

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

Tonight’s music round cheat:

Dashboard Confessional is one of those American bands that, to me at least, sound all exactly the same. I’m unimpressed but if their your favourite band ever please don’t let me piss on your chips.

In return, I’ll hear nae shite about Eurovision. Deal?

My Voice Has Repaired So Come To The Quiz, It Won’t Sound So Awful This Week

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

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

Jeezo. Last week’s Monday gigs were bad enough. Wednesday and Thursday were worse. I sounded like a cartoon villain in sandpaper factory.

I sounded like a frog with Tuberculosis.

I sounded like the interference between channels (millennials wont get this)

Anyway, however you describe it precisely, I generally sounded like shit.

Now, because I usually sound so damn beautiful, this was a personal tragedy. Me losing my voice is like if you lost your feet, hands and knees. In other words: not cool.

So I’m not one hundred per cent back to the golden tone, but definitely I sound a lot more like me. It is a relief.

Anyway, blah blah, here is the music for the cheat on the music round at the Safari tonight:

Song includes the lyric “who gets the job… of pushing the knob?” which by itself is enough to count the song as a WIN.

The Stranglers will not be playing live at the quiz tonight. But come along anyway. £150 is no to be breezed at.

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
