Mon 29th October 2018 – Monday Night Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Adriano Celentano (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Happy Feet (music round)

Last week at the Safari we discovered that an average Emperor Penguin stands at 3’9″*. This week we feature penguins in the picture round. What is going on. Some sinister penguin takeover? Stay tuned.

Here’s the music round free answer, it applies to the Brass Monkey Leith and it is a gloriously made-up piece of 1970s lingual nonsense from Italy’s master of entertainment, Adriano Celentano:

You’ve probably seen this before.

Celentano wrote a song to show how he thought Western (English language) pop music sounded to Italian ears.

It’s proper gibberish but various people have tried to fit it to English words. Here’s one example.

Anyway: vegans, trans, gay, straight, tall, dwarf, multi-ethnic, ginger people, penguins, bus drivers and billionaires, you’re all welcome to the quiz tonight. Let there be no walls.

First Full Wednesday of The Year

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Wizzard (music round – see vid below)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: James Blunt (music round)

It’s the first proper Wednesday of the year and I am EXCITED to be getting things back to normal after a month of festive nonsense.

Two music round hits for your cheats tonight: The first one is a Christmas hit which I won’t apologise for. The clip is only 20 seconds or less. That’s all you have to listen to… unless you watch the full (scary) video below

This got played a lot when I was a kid. The Santa guy (Roy Wood) was  terrifying. I never knew why such an obviously evil presence was used to sell Christmas. Still don’t “get it”.

The other thing is James Blunt, another thing I “don’t get”. It’s just shite isn’t it? Am I missing something?

It’s like Coldplay with even less charm. I must be wrong. Millions of people like this stuff. I don’t understand them either.

The older and “wiser” I get, the less I understand people’s tastes. Maybe I’m in the wrong business seeing as I have to communicate with lots of people. Ah, fuck it.
