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.

Imagine if the week just went straight from Sunday to Tuesday with nothing in between. No Monday. How weird would that be?

And people might wish for it, the kind of people who profess to hate Mondays but I guarantee you it wouldn’t be long before EVERYONE missed Mondays.

Careful what you wish for, folks.

Now, here is the free answer for tonight’s Music round at the Safari Lounge

The video is a live version while the music round clip is a studio version. They bear some resemblance to each other, but be careful

Mon 12th Nov

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat news: Bloc Party (music round)

No Halloween, No Fireworks, No Remembrance. Just shitty Christmas on the far horizon but that’s ages away. Let’s enjoy this period of calm.

And now: the music round free answer, it applies to tonight’s music round at the Safari and it is Bloc Party, who were the next big thing for a few minutes about fifteen years ago:

So what happens when you’re the next big ting, around fifteen years ago? Well, they’re still together.

In fact, having just looked them up, I see all of their first four albums made the top ten of the UK Album chart. Not bad from a band you never seem to hear about.

It’s Monday, so watch out for penguins:

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.

Huge Jackpot Tonight (Brass Monkey Leith)

All right. Helmets on. We’ve hit three hundred.

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith – Jackpot £300. Cheat: Picture round has a Chinstrap Penguin.

9pm – The Safari Lounge – Jackpot £30. Cheat: Music round contains The Flying Lizards. You’ll know the song (see vid below)

Everyone knows the song but I didn’t realise there was a video for it. I love youtube.

Of course, the best thing about youtube is the comments where everyone is mad. Here are just a few comments, just from this video:

======================================================
I’m shocked to see that the singer is a white lady. I always thought she sounded like an asian woman.
======================================================
Could be the voice of Melania Trump?
No, Melania has more raspy sound due to all the cum in her throat.
+MrSKIN my Dick could never go near a dudes ass or month dude. that just isn’t the only reason you’re gay trust me. the reason you’re gay is probably because YOU ARE GAY!
