Thu 13th Dec, Pub Quiz Action in Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Gone With The Wind  (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Major Lazer (music round).

The free answer for the music round at the Newsy tonight is Major Lazer I had to look them up but apparently they are a dance music trio from the USA. Fine. The song “features” Justin Bieber, so presumably that’s him doing the singing?

They sound like this:

Well, I just skipped through that and it is possibly one of the most meaningless videos I’ve ever viewed. But it includes Greek Islands, so it’s all right by me.

POLITICS THURSDAY

By the way- Thursday is now the day when I express my opinion on the crazy world of politics

This week’s point: FEMALE LEADERS ARE A GOOD THING.

All politics is a lie, but at least when the leader is female, my daughter (who is nearly 9 years old) can see that women can be at the top.

So, actual politics aside, I’d rather have a female country-boss and I wasn’t too dismayed to see Theresa May survive yesterday.

Even if she is a sneaky scrote and a savage Tory bastard of the first rank.

Disagree? Come and argue with me at the quiz.

See you tonight

Sunday Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Kenya (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Hazell Dean (music round)

The new bus schedule for the 35 is playing havoc with my ability to transfer smoothly between the Sunday quizzes. I know you couldn’t care less. I’m just saying.

Anyway, here’s the music round cheat for tonight’s quiz at the Tolbooth – it’s a fantastic 1984 song. You’ve no idea how club and hard this sounded in 1984 when you were used to straight pop on Radio 1.

I was too young to go to clubs and this was my first exposure to proper Hi-NRG sounds. Totally great.

If you like all that old TOTP stuff, make sure and watch the documentaries on youtube. The BBC made a series: each episode is a single year, viewed through the lens of Britain’s favourite pop show.

They cancelled TOTP in 2006 which, oddly enough, is where everything in the world started to go wrong. Causation? Correlation? Who knows

Anyway, however it works, I’ll se you at the quiz later.

Yeah.

Thursday Pub Quiz Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Serbia (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: The Commodores (music round)

Come to the quiz. You will find it mildly exhilarating at points. Also, satisfying and nice.

The cheat music for tonight is for the Newsroom and it is everyone’s favourite band with Lionel Richie in it: The Commodores.

Although, of course, Lionel Richie had already left the band by this point to become the world’s greatest singer.

This is the first Commodores song I ever remember hearing. It was the mid-80s and I wasn’t a fan of what was branded “soul” at that time but I liked this straight away. It’s got plenty.

It’s about dead pop stars. Fun fact: original keyboard player Milan Williams is now dead too. What goes around comes around.

So come to the quiz. See you later x

It’s Monday. Come On In.

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat news: B-52s (music round)

The USA and the Philippines may be struggling with the aftermath of cyclones and hurricanes and all that business but because we live in ultra-reasonable Scotland, this is not an issue and should NOT prevent anyone coming to the quiz tonight.

If there are any weather or flooding or transport issues which DO prevent you from making it to the two entertainment centres tonight (the Monkey and the Safari) then let me know on Twitter.

Meanwhile, here is a cheat clue for tonight’s quiz at the Safari, it’s the The B-52s:

The song doesn’t start until 8.35 but I’ve linked to this video so you can see a couple of their other songs. They really are the greatest band in pop history.

But never mind the B-52s. You need to choose what you’re going to wear to the quiz tonight. Something shiny? Something checked? Make it work.

Remember: tonight’s pub quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double (and people do).

 

First one at the Brass Leith finishes at 8.30pm and the second one at the Safari Lounge begins at 9pm (although I don’t usually hit the first question until about 10 past or quarter past)

I might be on the bike tonight but if I’m getting a taxi  I’m always happy to give you a lift between the two places. Free of charge!

The Best Sunday Night Entertainment Is A Pub Quiz

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Renoir (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Steps (music round)

Here are the things you COULD do in Edinburgh on a Sunday night:

  1. Go to the Tattoo. This is a bad idea. The festival is over and the temporary stadium has been dismantled. It is over.
  2. Go to the cinema. This is an awful idea. The plots are all the same and Tom Cruise just gets richer and richer for hacking out the same pish, repeatedly.
  3. Eat out in a restaurant. Nah. Paid dining has been revealed by scientists to be the single most disappointing way that modern humans waste their wages money. I can’t argue with scientists.
  4. Get tae the Pub Quiz. Yasssss. Thumbs all the way UP. Come on. Sexy time.

To be fair, you could also go for a game of darts and there’s not much negative I could say about that. Darts is barry, but I’d personally prefer it if you came to the quiz.

Here’s the music round cheat which pertains to the Tolbooth tonight. It’s Steps:

The video is when they used this power pop to ROCK Hyde Park:

And you can say what you like. Steps were great.

By the way, after a string of midweek jackpot wins, tonight is as big as the pots get for the week, particularly the £150 at the Tolbooth.

Roll it up and smoke it.

Yo!

Monday Super Duper Quiz Party Time – Leith Walk and Abbeyhill

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£100. Cheat: Inspiral Carpets (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £90. Cheat news: Take That (pic round)

Yeah. Monday quiz. Yeah. Woop. Excitement. THRILL.

Meanwhile, here is a cheat clue for tonight’s quiz at the Brass Leith, it’s the Inspiral Carpets:

Power pop from the Madchester band who were usually better than the Happy Mondays or The Stone Roses. Ah – the good old days.

Anyway, let’s not get sentimental. The good old days are dead, like Hitler. Let’s move on and embrace the new, like Boris Johnson.

Sunday Night Pub Quiz Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Nick Drake (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Reese Witherspoon (pic round)

Come on now and get out of your lazy fat sunday sofa. Shake a leg. Break a sweat. Move a muscle. GET TO THE QUIZ.

You will be rewarded with intellectual stimulation, a drink and a chance to achieve legend status.

Here’s the music round cheat which pertains to the Percy tonight. It’s Nick Drake:

Nice stuff. Quality hippy folk sound. Drake never made the 27 Club-  he died when he was just 26 years old.

Drake’s death was an overdose and was officially ruled as suicide, although the singer left no note.

Don’t worry though, don’t be spooked. I’ve listened to this song for many years and although it’s performed in a minor key, it hasn’t made me kill myself. I haven’t caught suicide by listening to it.

Which means the quiz will go ahead as usual tonight!

Take note – £120 at the Tolbooth tonight. Yeah.

Yo!

Sunday Night Pub Quiz Scene

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Supergrass (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Star Trek: Voyager (pic round)

As you know, it’s pishing with rain out there. Be careful when travelling to and from the quiz. Keep your arms inside the train. Walk don’t run.

It’s very late in the day, so I’m just going to cut straight into the free music round answer which relates to the Persevere:

The song is by Supergrass, an old Top of The Pops performance which sounds genuinely live.

See you at the quiz tonight!

Wednesday Delight – Evening Pub Quizzes for Your Delight

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Ashanti (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: James Franco (pic round)

Tonight sees the final quiz at Brass Monkey Drummond Street until September. The Monkey is situated right in the heart of the festival maelstrom and it means the bar is too transient to achieve quiz during August. Come along tonight to win the cash: £90

All other quizzes continue as normal during the great annual disruption.

Tonight’s music round cheat bonus at the Joker & The Thief is Ashanti and she sounds like this:

Everyone is falling out with each other in the video. It’s like one giant bad mood.

High production values though, like a movie…

Dead Pool resumes tonight, taking entries for August droppers…

Meanwhile, Cunto cards continue to fly. If you want a packet of the game that’s rocking the nation, hit me up – I usually have two or three packets with me at the quiz.

You can also get them online

Look at the happy people playing Cunto at the Joker last week. Yeah:

People playing Cunto
Cunto!
