The Whole Monday Thing

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £90. Cheat news: Wyclef Jean (musc round)

Tonight’s Brass MOnkey quiz is the third fifty-quidder in a row. Will someone win the jackpot again? It’s not like the questions are getting any easier or any harder.

These things sometimes just go in runs.

Meanwhile, here’s the video which reveals the cheat clue for tonight’s affair at the Safari:

That’s the second Monday video in a row that’s been filmed in an airport. Don’t presume this is planned or a theme or some kind of clue. It’s just the quiz and this is just a co-incidence.

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!

Monday Edinburgh Pub Quizzes

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Phil Collins (pic round)

I don’t have time to write too much today because I’m trying to get loads of work done. Thank Jesus, Allah and Moses that the Easter holidays are over.

See if you want to ever get anything done, don’t have children. Although they are great and I wouldn’t have it any other way, etc, yada. etc etc.

Speaking of music, here’s the cheat info relating to the Monkey tonight: a music clip from the Sugababes who were like Girls Aloud but not as good…

It looks like the video was filmed in Stansted airport. How’s that for glamour?

Random fact: France was still using the guillotine when Star Wars had been released.

Drawing Contest – Art McPartlin Pished On A Scooter

Recent drawing contest entries from the Joker on a Wednesday night:

The challenge followed the Ant McPartlin drink drive debacle and you had to draw the former idol, stripped of his license and reduced to riding a scooter, pished, down Leith Walk.

Some folk took that mean a motor scooter. I kind of meant a scooter scooter.

Anyway:

Monday Glory, Possibly Tragedy

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Chase & Status (music round)

Monday is brilliant. Great people in great pubs doing great things to each other before, during and after the quiz.

The quiz is just part of it. The whole experience is what counts. Just the same as going to church is more than just the communion. More than just the hymns…

Speaking of music, here’s the cheat info relating to the Safari tonight: a music clip from Chase and Status. It’s not a hymn…

There’s some fairly heavy make up in that video. It’s like Arbroath in 1987.

Monday Night – Last Big Jackpot Standing

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£300. Cheat: George Harrison (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £240. Cheat news: Saffron (pic round)

Last Monday was a red-letter day for Luiz Araujo, who have been teetering on the brink of greatness for several months.

After a string of bad fortune on other weeks, their persistence paid off and they bagged £240 last Monday at the Safari. It was a great moment:

Earlier on in the evening, no one managed to nail down to Brass Monkey Leith jackpot, so from a pool of recent large jackpots, tonight is the last one remaining intact.

Come and win £300 tonight. Yes: three hundred pounds.

Here’s the cheat info: a music clip from the music round at Brass Monkey Leith tonight…

It’s George Harrison of The Beatles doing a solo number. I don’t usually go for stuff that’s overtly ‘nice’ but there’s a something about the song. It’s a good ‘un.

By the way, my side project is CUNTO. It’s amazing and you can buy a pack now.

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!

Monday Night Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh: Leith and Abbeyhill

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £100. Cheat: Captain And Tennille (music round)

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

The song in the Brass Monkey Leith music round is by Captain & Tennille who were a big deal in the seventies.

For a while in the 1990s I was right into their schmaltz, I collected their albums.

Now in the modern era I can watch them perform on youtube, live and direct from the actual 1970s.

In true 70s TV superstar style, they always looked a bit wasted. I don’t really know what Quaaludes are but I bet they were on Quaaludes. These are drugs that always get mentioned in 70s rock life-fail biography paragraphs.

They were a couple and were married for 39 years and then she left him. He had some disease along the lines of Parkinson’s. She felt the marriage was a sham and only really there to please the fans.

I read so many of these stories when researching questions. Sometimes I feel sad for the participants and other times I feel nothing. I feel sorry for Tennille and the Captain. Maybe it’s because I like their hits. Perhaps I’m that shallow.
