Thursday Celebration – Quizzes Are Go

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £180. Cheat answer: Iran (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Alvin Stardust (music round)

Massive win for the RUBBER GUN SQUAD last week at the Newsroom when they won £300 so we’re back to £50 there tonight.

This means the jackpot of the week now switches to the Argyle Bar where £180 is on offer.

Dead Pool for August is live. I took the first entries last night and there were at least a couple of entries for Zimbabwe’s favourite bawbag, Robert Mugabe.

Could the tyrant’s time be up?

Meanwhile, here’s a look at the Newsroom music round cheat clip for tonight. It’s everyone’s favourite singer, Alvin Stardust, who ruled the seventies like a benign leather dictator.

The video features Alvin Stardust and his trademark glove, a glove which brought terror to children watching the telly in the seventies. Alvin often had this schtick where he was “mean” and didn’t smile. It scared some people.

Sometimes he dropped it and was the nice guy. If you have nine minutes on your hands, you should check out his appearance on the Wheeltappers and Shunters.

This is Peak UK Seventies. Includes a section where Stardust mercilessly teases one helpless woman with THE GLOVE and is then chased off stage by another, more forward, woman in her quest for the OTHER GLOVE.

They literally don’t make them like that anymore.

Yeah. Also, remember to stop me and buy a packet of Cunto Cards  if you’re looking for that special gift for the foul-mouthed fiend in your life.

Thursday – Biggest Jackpot for Ages

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £120. Cheat answer: Iggy Pop (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £250. Cheat answer: Jean-Michel Jarre (music round)

Tonight’s quiz at The Newsroom provides the biggest jackpot I’ve had for a while. £250.

It’s a quarter of a grand!

Here’s the music round cheat for the Newsroom:

The drum machine sound is awesome. The whole thing is so French. I think this is a sign that France are going to win the world cup.

How the hell is me posting a video of a 40-year old synth piece a “sign”? I don’t know either but it makes as much sense as some of the other cleromancy that goes on. One immediately thinks of Paul the Octopus in 2010, David Hasselhoff’s dogs at the last world cup and now Bill Bailey has his ducks of destiny…

What a load of shite.

What’s NOT a load of shite is that you can win a big bucket of money tonight. Come to the quiz!

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.

Thursday Could Be Your Night, Today

Quizzes Tonight:

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

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

The Newsroom provides the biggest jackpot of the Dr Paul week tonight: £150 up for grabs.

Also: summer seems to have hit the Newsroom hard and its been fairly quiet the last couple of weeks so you might find yourself with a better chance to win tonight than in most of the quiz venues.

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

The video is great: it has urban industrial squalor, rooftop zombie dance attack and electrical fightback. The song is good too.

The answer I have tonight is “Generation X” although the real story is more complicated than that. The band was originally “Generation X”  but when this came out, they’d changed their name to “Gen X” BUT the single was a flop. THEN they split up and the singer, Billy Idol went solo. The video is from a later solo release, which was a hit but under his own name.

Gee, writing pop questions can be a minefield.

Remember kids, don’t write your own questions at home without the help of a professional.

More interestingly, the song is supposedly on the topic of masturbation, which itself is the posh word for having a wank, rubbing one out, feeding the ducks, flicking the bean, etc

That’s what they say anyway, same as they say it about ‘Blister In The Sun‘ by the Violent Femmes.

There’s also a song by 1970s prog-rock favourites Caravan titled ‘If I Could Do It All Over Again, Id Do It All Over You‘ which has to be suspect.

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 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.

Quizzes Tonight:

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

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £200. Cheat answer: Suede (music round)

Super TWO HUNDRED quid vibes at the Newsroom tonight. Get your hands on the do re mi.

By the way I have double-checked the info above. These ARE the correct cheats this week.

Here is the music round cheat for the Newsroom:

Totally great. Suede were fantastic. Maybe the last good band before I stopped caring about guitar bands and refocused my brain towards pop.

The video has KPs and binmen, is full of rubbish and backstreet shite in it and still makes the city look sexy. Nice work.

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.
