Thursday Barely Matters. It’s YOU Who Counts

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Orange Juice (music round)

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

Roles reversed from last week. Big jackpot at the Newsroom now. LARGE.

Meanwhile, here’s the Orange Juice tune from tonight’s music round at the Argyle:

Orange Juice. Wow. Remember them? Almost all of you WON’T, as you’re under 40. They, along with Altered Images and maybe Aztec Camera were branded ‘The sound of Young Scotland’.

This was the early 80s, a wee Scottish paradise time when there were still jobs in big places that made things and everyone lived like the people in ‘Gregory’s Girl’. It was usually summer and even in Scotland there were warm nights.

At the time, all the middle class boys who were SLIGHTLY older than based their look on Edwyn Collins, singer of the Orange Juice. They continued to base their look on Collins then, and forever since.

These men are now about 50 years old. Some of them might be at the quiz tonight.

BOOZE

BOOZE:

2 x Tennents

3 x Bunnahabhain

1 x Black Sambuca

1 x Tequila

COMMENT:

Nice work. I know nowt about whisky but apparently Bunnahabhain is a good one. The Sambuca and the Tequila add urban street edge while it’s all backed up with a pair of basic pints, the kind of pints that built Scotland into the international superpower that she is today.

Well played, Team Omni

Team Name Image Search #5: Team Omni

In #dpquiz terms, Team Omni are a dissolute squad of young Edinburgh drunks, ruthlessly coming first or sometimes tenth in the quiz and winning a fair amount of booze and grumbling about the jackpot round without a single fucking care about the rest of the world.

But if you put “Team Omni” in Google image search, you get these women who are from a hotel in Atlanta, Georgia, USA and who like to raise money for children who need chemotherapy.

It’s a big world.
