Wednesday Pub Quiz Scene In Funky Bonnie Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: David Zowie (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £120 Cheat: George Michael (pic round)

It’s Eurovision week, so I can hardly think about the quizzes properly due to the proper Eurovision excitement.

Did you see the first semi-final last night? Fucking magic.

Anyway, Here’s the music round cheat info for the quiz at the Joker tonight: it’s a dance music song with a fairly standard dance music video. But the video DOES include a lauderette so ye cannae beat that.

I wonder if there’s a playlist anywhere on youtube that just has pop music videos which include a lauderette as a location?

Maybe.

It’s 2018 and things are reaching that point where if you can think of it then it already exists, thanks to old father internet.

 

When was the last time you disco danced in a launderette? For me, the answer would be “the early 90s”.

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.

Why The Olympics Is Rubbish

By the way. See all this hand-wringing moralising about Russian dope cheats in sport? It’s all utter nonsense.

All UK athletes, all US athletes and all athletes from countries like Germany, Switzerland and Canada have been doping for years, every single one of them.

The doping that enhances their performances isn’t necessarily chemical but it’s just as effective: MONEY.

If the medals won at the Olympics were shared out between the number of people in a country, the UK would have a medal for every 77,000 people but in India one medal would have to be shared between 45 million folk.

Does this mean British people are 591 times better than Indian people?

Does it mean we are five hundred times as sporty, five hundred times as fit and healthy?

Of course not, but the Olympic medal table is held up like some nation performance indicator.

FACT: Top sport is for privileged people.

Broadcasters like the BBC love the cosy narrative about sports people being ordinary folks making big life sacrifices for a noble end. That’s partly true but the real story includes a shit load of privilege which is never part of the story.

The same media have been busy crying about Russia and drugs and how our poor Brits have been done out of medals.

Drug cheats and wealth cheats. It’s all the same if you never get a shot in the first place.

Democratic Republic of Congo has more people than the UK and is still waiting for it’s first Olympic medal. We have more than 800.

The Olympics is a quadrennial festival of posh idiots, forever shoving overwhelming privilege right down the throats of poor countries and reminding them who’s the boss.
