Wednesday Quiz Wonder

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: City of God (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £150 Cheat: KT Tunstall (music round)

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey:

It’s KT Tunstall fae Scotland doing a song about being on the other side of the world.

Would the UK win Eurovision if they entered ‘proper’ artists like Tunstall?

Maybe not. Who knows. We tried Engelbert Humperdinck but he was so old-skool and old-hat that he could only come second-last.

I know most of you don’t care, but I’m still excited by this year’s Eurovision, even though it’s over for another year.

I am jealous of the Quiz Vanjie team who were in Lisbon for the week. Brilliant.

The one I like never wins, this year I liked France but they finished 13th. Shame. Quality song.

Anyway, I’m rambling and its nearly time for pop master, so let me finish with my favourite missing cat poster from last year…

A cat named Alan
“I ran away because you named me Alan”

 

Hope to see you at the quiz tonight

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

Up The Peak Of The Week

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £180. Cheat: Gomez (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £60 Cheat: Cherry (pic round)

Don’t stay inside crying. Come out to the pub tonight and win all the moneys.

Just think: £180 at the Joker. Sweet and nice. This could alleviate a power-bill problem or if all is sorted on the bills front, you could buy yourself a wee day out to Newcastle on the train and have plenty of money left to get pished when you arrive there.

You know, to fit in.

This might help: the cheat tip for tonight’s music round at the Joker. It’s Gomez who were popular for a short time round about 1999.

And when I say “popular”, what I mean is that this song got to number 21 in the charts and was more or less their biggest hit.

The video is a good idea – a recreation of the old health and safety films that used to fill up the gaps on TV between ‘Mister Benn’ and ‘Nationwide’.

Quality concept.

Anyway remember the wisdom: if you can possibly arrange it, bring someone older and someone younger to the quiz to be on your team. It’s one thing that an really make a difference to your score.

Pub Quiz Edinburgh Wednesday

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £90. Cheat: Walrus (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: Robert Palmer (pic round)

Two rollovers last Wednesday so tonight’s pots are respectable and delectable like a Tiger if not particularly enormous and thunderous like an Elephant.

The Joker is  a smooth silk hanky. The Monkey is a ruddy velvet curtain. Make your choice

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey quiz. It’s Robert Palmer (NOW DEAD) being all rock star…

Meanwhile, here’s me in a white jacket, promoting the idea of booze:

Yo!

Wednesday Night Quizzes in Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Blur (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £60 Cheat: Geena Davis (pic round)

Heyyy. Wednesdays are sexy like a salmon sandwich, but on really good bread.

The Joker is  a smooth midweek lounge lizard snake pit. The Monkey on Drummond Street is a filthy hive of fuck knows what.

There’s something for everyone.

Here’s the music round cheat for the 7pm quiz at the Joker. It’s Blur being a bit awkward. I like the song though.

 

Meanwhile, do you doodle on your jackpot sheet? It makes it more difficult to read the answers, but it can be visually stimulating.

We Love Wednesday It’s So Great

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £150 Cheat: Martin Solveig (music round)

 

Two rollovers last midweek sets up a cheeky Wednesday for your pocket. One-fifty at the Monkey. That’s like.. great.

How about the music round cheat? Here it is:

 

This is a modern song but I like it. I thought it was much more produced, but it’s pretty bare. The video is good as well. Nothing really happens except a lift gets faster and people become more extreme versions of themselves as the lift speeds up.
