This Is Thursday. It’s Time To Quiz It

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £90. Cheat answer: Aaliyah (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £200. Cheat answer: Malta (pic round)

The Newsroom provides the biggest jackpot of the Dr Paul week tonight: £200 up for grabs.

The Newsroom was dead last week – so come and capitalize on the summer vibe and win DA MONEY

Here’s the music round cheat for the Argyle Bar:

It’s Aaliyah who died at the age of 22 in  plane crash in the Bahamas.

Disaster.

If she had lived she could have been a judge on X-Factor or something.

The song is good – like a cross between Janet Jackson and TLC. The Bass moves everywhere and, listening to it now, I just noticed that it references I Know You Got soul by Erik B & Rakim – proper old school.

The video is also very Janet Jackson with lots of co-ordinated movements between dancers, all in some kind of showroom for garden water features (night theme).

For dying so young, Aaliyah properly left her mark.

Wiki says ” She is listed by Billboard as the tenth most successful female R&B artist of the past 25 years and 27th most successful R&B artist in history“.

Not bad. Just a shame about the airplane crash. She’s in good company though.

Make Thursday Great Again. Come To The Quiz

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Pole-Vaulting (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £100. Cheat answer: One Direction (music round)

Here’s the music round cheat for tonight at the Newsroom. The Newsroom attracts its fair share of after-work Colins and Susans so they probably know this one already:

I’d love to buck the trend and say something nice about One Direction but it won’t be for this song which is more pish than a Glastonbury portaloo.

So anyway, bring your friends. Come to the quiz. Sit down and answer questions. Get them right. Win.

Tonight.

Thursday Is Coming. Prepare.

Quizzes Tonight:

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

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Leo (pic round)

The music cheat for the Newsroom tonight is Genesis, led by evil centre-forward and all-time BEAST, Phil “the widowmaker” Collins.

The song, as Phil Collins revealed in his 1992 autobiography ‘I Am The Beast‘ is a prediction of what will happen when the rapture finally engulfs the Earthly plane and the dark lord, Satan himself (who is currently abating his dark majesty to inhabit the body of a drummer) will once again grow to his full size and begin the final destruction of humanity.

Collins’s evil acts such as famines, tsunamis and terrorism are just placemarkers, time-wasters, minor acts of cruelty, amusements until Satan returns in full.

Note the lyric “slowly tears you apart“.

The final showdown of humanity versus the Devil aint gonna be quick. It’s gonna be nasty.

You read it here first.

Thursday Night Quiz Action in Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £90. Cheat answer: Galaxian (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Alicia Keys (pic round)

The music cheat for the Newsroom tonight is Alicia Keys.

The video is great. It starts off with Alicia Keys looking AWKWARD in her boots but this is soon forgotten as she hits the streets and reveals herself as a superhero who can HEAL DOGS with a single touch.

Then she rides a bmw motorcycle to an ABANDONED INDUSTRIAL FACILITY to pump her piano and then nearly busts some guy’s face with her mysterious powers which in turn make her CRY.

Brilliant.

Thursday Night’s All Right For Quizzing

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £90. Cheat answer: Beck (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £150. Cheat answer: Burning Man (pic round)

Tonight’s Thursday pub quiz action in the great town of Edinburgh offer you the sanctity of victory.

Not at all costs. We must remember that we are members of a civilization and at the moment our inner dragon commands murder, we must use our top-brains to resist such base urge.

Especially just to win a pub quiz. Jeez. Imagine being sent down for life imprisonment because you killed someone who was doing better than you at the pub quiz.

THINK!

IT’S NOT WORTH IT

Meanwhile, here is the cheat answer for the music round at Here’s their song that’s in the music round at the Argyle tonight:

It’s hoary old campaigner Beck, but back in the day when he was good. Bands and singers often go like that, you know: ace when young and shite later.

Not quizmasters – we get better as we get older.

I’ve posted some poor pop videos recently but this one’s great. All cut up and senseless. Nice.

See you at the quiz. Did you notice the jackpots tonight? £90 and £150. That’s decent.

Make Your Thursday Night A Quiz Triumph

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Crystal Palace (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £100. Cheat answer: Simply Red (music round)

Thursday offers you the chance for sexy underground vibe in Marchmont or upfront street cocktail action at the Newsy. Both are terrific beyond comprehension.

If you’re coming to the quiz tonight, be aware of the cheats mentioned in the details above. It’s like a free answer.

Here is the cheat clip for tonight’s Newsroom music round.

It’s Simply Red who used to dominate the UK Singles Chart like Google dominate search. This was one of their most memorable hits:

In fact, it was their first hit and it made Mick Hucknall a star and ginger-haired sex-symbol.

It’s a cover version. The original is American and has a hefty, sleazy-funk edge. Is it better? That’s up to you.

Thursday Makes Monsters Out of Moles

Quizzes Tonight:

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

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £150. Cheat answer: Alanis Morissette (pic round)

The other great thing about tonight’s quiz at the Argyle is your chance to meet the organisers of Pint Fest, Scotland’s newest boutique music festival which is taking place in a back garden in Marchmont in May sometime.

The organisers live over the road from the Argyle and chose last week’s quiz to launch their extravaganza.

No bands booked when I last checked but it seems likely to be the event of the summer.

I hope they manage to book Suede.

I always liked Suede and I really liked this when it came out. But it seemed that no one agreed and it was the death of their glory days. Suede was over. Suede was finished. People moved on.

This is the cheat tune for tonight’s music quiz at the Argyle:

After that it was Radiohead and the Strokes and the Arctic Monkeys all that nonsense, as far as guitars were concerned. None of them as good as Suede.

Anyway, you’ll hear approximately twenty seconds of the glory of Suede tonight. Maybe I should fill up my playlists with some of their other terrific works.

By the way – don’t miss Cunto Cards. Still some first edition packs left. Stop me and buy a pack at the quiz or get them online at cunto.org

Every One Hates The Beast

Quizzes Tonight:

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

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £150. Cheat answer: India Arie (music round)

The Beast From The East destroyed last Thursday so we are back, stronger, taller, faster, Scooter.

Here’s the music round cheat from tonight’s Newsroom quiz:

 

India Arie has a voice that is very smooth but a little bland, like well-made Ovaltine. Does anyone drink Ovaltine any more? Or is it just me in my Dickensian past?

Three minutes later….

A quick internet search reveals that people ARE still drinking Ovaltine. Well fuck me sideways.

Here’s some other Google searches for things people may or may not still be doing these days. How many of these have you done in the last week?
