Mon 10th December – Quizzes Tonight In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Twickenham (pic round)

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

Monday smells and it smells like victory.

Come to the quiz.

Now, here’s the reward for reading this post:  a free answer for tonight’s music round at the Safari Lounge.

I haven’t listened more than once or twice but I think there’s not much lyrical content: I think it’s about going out and getting wasted.

Music in it is excellent though, even though it is “very modern” in my book.

Not that modern, however, it you iz youtz.

The youtube comments are full of young people saying things like  “whooooooooaaaa – I can’t believe this is five years old”. and “I feel so old” and “music isn’t like this anymore”.

Fuck off kids, I’m old enough to remember Mike Read banning ‘Relax’ while simultaneously giving Bruno Brookes a rather hypocritical reach-around and calling Matt Bianco wankers, live on Swap Shop.

That’s real nostalgia.

This #penguinmonday might be the last. Look at the scabby state of this one.

Thursday Quizzes Tonight

Edinburgh rocks and resonates to the quiz beat. Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (And Cellar). Jackpot: £60. Cheat: There is someone called Jordin Sparks in the musi round. Have a look at the video posted below to hear the tune.

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £250. Cheat: The picture round tonight includes Mark Ronson.

The song is from 2009 so there are loads of children commenting on youtube, getting nostalgic about that fact.

They whoop and say things like “If you’re still listening in 2017…whoo!”.

Youtube comments like this are dumb but at least they are not calling each other “faggots” and threatening personal violence as seems to be case on most youtube instances.

Quarter of a Grand – Tonight!

We’re hitting big numbers again at the Brass Monkey LEith. £250 jackpot tonight. That’s a “wow”.

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: £250. Cheat: The incredible Black Lace are in the music round. Sadly not their greatest work “Gang Bang” but still a party favourite. Check the video to the 1980s birthday party shcool disco action and hear the song.

9pm – The Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat: The picture round this week includes the answer “Macbeth“.

Black Lace were one of the cultural motifs that defined the working class experience of the 1980s.

They are from the same bargain bucket as Findus crispy pancakes, Ford Fiestas, Bullseye with Jim Bowen on Sundays, Bruno Brookes doing the charts on Tuesdays, holidays at Butlins and stonewash jeans.

What a load of shite, a beautiful load of old shite.

Feeling nostalgic!

Tell you what though, if you win £250 tonight at the quiz and then travel through time to 1984 (the time of the Conga), you’ll be the king of all humans.

Having £250 in those days made you GOD. Fact!

Mind you, that’s from the perspective of a 12 year old. Maybe it wasn’t that much if you were working.
