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.

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

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.

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:
