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?”
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.
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.
