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 Jackin’ – Jackin’ The Quiz

Quizzes Tonight:

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

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

Thursday has dawned like a fat boy at a buffet.

Don’t get beat to the cheeses. Don’t let him grab all the ham. Snatch a sausage roll from under his sniffy fatty snout right now, before they all get grabbed. Run!

That was a trifle fattist. Whoa! don’t mention trifle.

Anyway, here is the cheat clip from tonight’s’ Newsroom music round. It sounds like modern pop music in such a pre-fabricated way that it might well have been written by an algorithm.

Algorithms might one day be sophisticated enough to emulate Jethro Tull but the Tull will have always been the ones to do it first.

Fuck the robots.

So Damn Close

This is what a team looks like when they were so damn close to the money.

so close to the money
so close…

They were probably one question out. Looks to me like it was for about £200.

But the right answer eluded them and now they have nothing except sullen regret.

Apart from the guy in the middle. He’s not playing along, he’s giving it the “not bothered”. Who knows. Maybe he isn’t bothered.

I’ve no way of telling.

I’m a quizmaster, not a mindreader.

Horses Get Vote

Here’s a rather touching team name form the Newsroom pub quiz the other week.

I Love Horses The Best Of All The Animals.

Gee, that’s really nice.

The thing I really like about this team name is that you can tell they mean no disrespect to sealions or boa constrictors or hyenas, its just that they really really like horses.

I repsect that.
