Sunday Edinburgh Pub Quizzes

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Guinea Pig (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Ashford & Simpson (music round)

Here is the music round cheat for the Tolbooth. I used to like this song when I was a kid:

The guy’s got loads of soul glow and swaggering soul-knits. And leather trousers. He looks a bit like Barry White but less fat.

I don’t know whatever happened to Ashford and Simpson. But They look like emotional people. I bet they were as deeply affected by the death of Harambe as any of us.

I think my voice is nearly back to normal. Wednesday and Thursday were horrible. Sorry if you chose to sit through that.

Thanks for the various wishes of recovery, but If you really are worried about my health, the quickest way to get me back to fitness is to buy a deck of Cunto cards.

Thanks for that!

Sunday Night, So Bright, Don’t Fight. Quiz Glory Awaits.

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Leffe (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Westlife (music round)

Hey. It’s Sunday and, as I type, the weather is good. Take advantage, go outside for a while.

Then when you realise how tedious outside can be (nowhere to buy beer, nowhere to politely piss) then come back inside to the pub where everyone is your friend and you can get food and booze and win the quiz.

Here is a clip from the music round at the Tolbooth tonight:

Just like the Wizard of Oz, the video begins in black and white and then dramatically leaps into colour just as it gets to the good bit.

The good bit in the Wizard of Oz is where Dorothy travels to Oz and kills the witch and meets the Munchkins and literally everything goes completely bananas.

In the Westlife video, the “good bit” is just the chorus. 1939 > 2001

I mean, it’s a decent enough song. It’s the sort of thing that would have easily won Eurovision in 1995.

I’ve started properly listening to Eurovision songs for next month. The criticism of this year’s Iceland entry is that it sounds like a winner from the 1990s. It is predicted to fail to qualify from the semis.

My favourite so far is Greece or France or Cyprus or Moldova. Not sure yet – will need a few more listens. I’ll keep you updated because I know you care, deeply.

Sunday Night Is Quiz Night

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Rory (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Chic (music round)

The cheat-music clip from the Tolbooth music round tonightis disco legends Chic. Check out the groove:

Chic are always so well turned-out. More seventies smooth than you can wave a disco-stick at. Delicious.

And remember your inspiration, quiz teams. Remember what Mahatma Gandhi always said: “WINNING IS BETTER THAN LOSING”

Sunday Pub Quizzes In Good Old Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Londonbeat (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Zimbabwe (pic round)

You’ll recognise the cheat-music clip from the Persevere music round tonight. It’s a 1991 super-classic:

Mental. Not as mental as anyone who bothered visiting Hampden the other night to witness the most inevitable 0-1 home defeat of all time.

 

I don’t even know why this is in my head. I’ve found it harder and harder and harder to give hoot what Scotland is doing in football as the years wear on. What’s that? 20 years ago now since France 98. Le sigh.

Sunday Night Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Patti (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Jean Michel Jarre (music round)

Here is the music round cheat info for the Tolbooth: a stunning clip of super-French-ness from the master of all things electronique, Monsieur Jean-Michel Jarre.

Listen very carefully, he will only play this once. (Unless you put the video on repeat).

Meanwhile , people keep asking me about Brexit, Russia and what it all means for the quiz.

Well, I put a report into the British Union of Analysts and asked them to prognosticate.

The bottom line is that Russians murdering their spies and Britain leaving Europe is set to have MINIMAL IMPACT on the quiz.

For this, we should all be grateful.

Sunday Night – Good Jackpots Are On Offer Tonight. Will You Be Tempted Out

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Moscow (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Heart (music round)

Both jackpots have reached a good level for tonight’s quizzes. Will you be tempted out of your nest and your Netflix and your solitude and your depression?

I thoroughly recommend making a social out of Sunday before the creeping darkness of loneliness overcomes you.

Here is the music round cheat info: a clip from tonight’s music round at the Tolbooth:

 

FACT: This pop video has more hair than the cat and dog home at Portobello. It is great.

By the way, if you see Phil Collins anywhere on the internet, remember to alert the authorities, as his campaign to control the mind of every living soul is gaining ground.

Whatever you do, don’t look him in the eye.

Turn away.

Half-Term Quiz Machine

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: The War On Drugs (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Washington DC (pic round)

It’s half-term. That will mean nothing to many of you, but for those of use with kids it means a different kind of week.

Like everything in the world, it’s almost impossible to classify this as either fully “good” or “bad”.

Plus side: No hauling out of bed in what feels like the middle-of-the-night, just to fulfill the school’s totally arbitrary “start time”, and all the pain that involves.

Plus side: No homework, and all the pain that involves.

Minus side:

Why are you still here?

Why can’t I get on with any of my stuff?

Why do you need everything done for you?

Sure, it feels like bad parenting but yes you can watch Netflix for the next three hours if it means I can get anything done at all.

When are you back at school?

Monday?

Excellent.

Obviously, this has got little to do with the quiz except to say I might be slightly more disorganized than usual for the coming week’s super quiz events.

Why am I telling you? Maybe I’m trying to pre-secure some forgiveness.

Anyway:

The War On Drugs is a good name for a band. I like it. It could mean the conventional meaning: a war AGAINST drug proliferation. You could read it like you’re AT war and ON drugs.

Who knows?

By the way, I love all the people that come to the quiz. Here are a few teams from the Tolbooth Tavern:

You can wash off the hatred by coming to the quiz at the Brass Monkey Leith. We start at 7pm,. finish at 8.30 pm and tonight along the way you can win £50 plus drinky booze and special gifts.
