Thu Nov 8 – Quizzes Tonight

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: “Bombay Bicycle Club” (music round)

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

So, Halloween’s just out the way but just when you think there’s a bit of clear water and a bit of blue sky, there’s Hugo in the Monkey

Hugo only appears in Edinburgh when there’s big events work to be done, we saw him a few months ago when it was the festival.

“All right Hugo – to what do we owe the pleasure? Why are you in town?”

“Christmas.”

Aaaaaaaagggggh. Bastards. Can someone organise a movement to cancel Christmas? I’ll sign the petition.

Anyway, here’s the music round cheat for tonight which is for the Argyle Bar:

Bombay Bicycle Club? Not my cup of tea. A bit Lib-Dem, a bit of a bed-wetter tendency.

POLITICS THURSDAY

Incidentally – Thursday is now the day when I express my political opinion on this blog.

This week’s point: POLARITY DISTRACTS US FROM IMPROVING ANYTHING BY SPLITTING US INTO OPPOSING CAMPS. AND NOTHING GETS DONE.

Are you Leave or Remain?

Poppy or No Poppy?

Cybernat or Onionist?

Liberal or Racist?

These simplistic 50/50s seem to be everywhere these days and while people expend their political energy working out what camp their in and then shouting at the other camp, any ideas to actually fix things get forgotten and dusty.

As the population rips itself to bits with thrashing right/wrong arguments in the simplest possible terms (which go nowhere), the elites continue to stockpile money, power, and the means to survive when the flood comes.

The rest of us will drown and will still be arguing the meaning of Brexit as Britain itself disappears beneath narwhals.

Maybe we should accept whatever poppy someone is wearing or not wearing and get back to destroying the privilege of the wealthy.

Love,

Thu Nov 1 – Quizzes Tonight

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: “Gotcha” (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £100. Cheat answer: Storm Queen (music round).

I’m double double-checking tonight’s music rounds – I screwed up last night and had Rihanna for Cristina Aguilera. I can’t believe either of them would be happy with the confusion.

To be honest, I was happy to get home in one piece last night. Halloween plus Hearts and Hibs. What a mess. Hope you’re OK.

Anyway, here’s the music round cheat for tonight which is for the Newsroom. 

It’s a ladies’ lion. Nasty.

POLITICS THURSDAY

Incidentally – Thursday is now the day when I express my political opinion on this blog.

This week’s point: Remembrance is one thing but the officially endorsed style Remembrance stinks.

The official style of sad-but-well-dressed parades are so solemn and so dignified.

This dress code bestows dignity upon what was actually the brutal slaughter of one class by another.

Real war is dirtier than Demi Lovato and Donald Trump on a Tequila bender in Berlin. Official remembrance is clean like a toilet than has been readied for the Queen.

The only dirty thing in modern remembrance is the sneaky language: They always talk about men who “made the ultimate sacrifice“. No they didn’t. They were sacrificed.

There is all the difference.

 

Love,

Dr Paul

Thursday 25th October 2018 – Quizzes Tonight

Quizzes Tonight:

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

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Carry On Up The Khyber (music round)

Here are tonight’s quizzes. They is great.

The Argyle – So nice.

Newsroom – So glamour.

The cheat music for tonight is for the Argyle. This is early 80s Stranglers – a a spooky number from the start of their ‘Men In Black’ concept album which is about space travellers, many years before Will Smith was even cool.

The video is a fan-made interpretation. Kinda Halloweeny.

One of the reasons you may recognise the song (if you’re a bit older) is that it was used for many years as the introduction music to Keith Floyd’s cookery shows. He was the one who liked to get pissed on wine while he was cooking. A hero to millions.

Anyway – I’ll see you at the quiz. I’ll be the one with the great hair.

POLITICS THURSDAY

Incidentally – Thursday is now the day when I express my political opinion on this blog.

This week’s point: Never trust any politician who spreads his hands forwards and to the sides when s/he is talking, like a clumsy Jesus. That shit is all training and it kicks in when they’re not being 100% truthful.

Love,

Dr Paul

Nigel Farage in a Garage

I had a drawing contest on Wednesday at The Joker & The Thief.

The challenge was to draw Nigel Farage in a Garage. There are at least four different ways of pronouncing that sentence.

Anyway: Here are six of the best:

1. Infographic

This one goes for reductive simplicity:

2. Pipe Swap

Farage has a pipe up his pipe. Wisely, he is not smoking in this one.

3. Massive Dog

 

This one renders the UKIP mastermind as a very massive creature that looks a bit like a dog. I like this one and I can’t think why.drawing contest nigel farage in a garage (4)

4. Think of The Children

Nigel Farage has a solution for orphaned emigrants/travellers/refugees/migrants/incomers (etc). Put them in a garage and make them watch kinky stuff.drawing contest nigel farage in a garage (5)

 

5. Plain Evil

The malevolence of Nigel’s racism shines through in this catchy number:drawing contest nigel farage in a garage (6)

6. The Winner

And the winner was this one which has got just enough sex-stuff in it but not too much.

Unity Mug

Last September’s Scottish Independence referendum didn’t go the way I wanted it but to help the healing process I have created this mug:

_prize mugIts a Yes wristband round a Union J mug. This is the kind of thing that will bring families back together. Peace for all.

I say all this as if I’m about to sell you one but I gave this away at the quiz at the Percy on Sunday and I have no plans to make any more. I can’t honestly see the market for this.
