Sunday. You can march along Princes Street for women’s rights in the afternoon then come to the quiz afterwards and win the money, blow those MEN out of the water.

Blue Fox Tuesday – Sometimes Invulnerable

Tonight’s cheat music is Julian Cope (for the Tolbooth Tavern) with an interesting take on suicide bombers. It’s titled: ‘All The Blowing-Themselves-Up Motherfuckers (Will Realise The Minute They Die That They Were Suckers)‘.

No official video as Cope in a not a bankrolled mega-artist, but someone has put the song to some footage from Afghanistan. Here’s a non-reality version if you would like to hear the song but avoid the gore:

If you ARE actually a suicide bomber, then don’t. All you do is kill people and make a mess. Everyone is sad and nothing gets fixed.

Come to the quiz instead and win booze and money! Everyone is happy and all problems are solved.

Wednesday Was Built For You

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Rod Stewart (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: Wellington (music round)

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey:

 

It’s the greatest song ever written and the greatest video ever made. It’s the moment when Rod Stewart single-handedly broke the seventies into small pieces and created what we still call “the eighties.”

The youtube comments on the video seem to be an awful lot to do with Grand Theft Auto San Andreas.

One bloke says

"GTA on PS2... best time of my life"

– that’s the entire comment and it has 1400 likes.

Is it me or is that hugely sad? All these people? And playing a computer game was the BEST time of their LIFE?

It’s a cliche, but they NEED TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE.

You can get out the house tonight. At the q uiz. And maybe even out of your mind. If you do, that’s fine. I’m not your dad although, increasingly, I’m old enough to be so.

By the way, I had a bit of downtime but Cunto cards are back in stock and I will have a few decks with me tonight if you’re looking for a pack.

Thursday Night Quiz Action In Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Herb Alpert (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Mr. Strong (pic round)

Herb Alpert is an old easy-listening favourite of mine from the Boudoir days.

One of his later, smoother works is in the music round at the Argyle tonight:

This is the kind of music you play when it’s just you and the candles. So smooth. Treat yourself nice. Draw the curtains and light the fire.

By the way – it is now ILLEGAL to be an arsehole in the park, so put out that BBQ and get yourself to the Argyle.

Monday Night Quiz Action and Reaction

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Chicks On Speed (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £150. Cheat news: Liverpool (pic round)

Great jackpots tonight. What’s not to love. Get to the quiz!

Cheat piece for the music round at the Brass Leith tonight, it’s Chicks on Speed:

I’ve always liked this song but I’ve just watched three or four Chicks on Speed videos on youtube and have decided I don’t like them as much as I thought I did.

They seem to be trying very very hard to be “ART” and “EDGE”.

I’ve not read about them and this might be a completely baseless judgement but I reckon they look like they started off life rich and, using this background platform of stability, are able to pursue “art” and shun commercialism.

Nothing inherently wrong with that. Fair play. But I think I prefer the commercial equivalent: something like Lady Gaga. It feels more honest.

Anyway, I’m sure Chicks on Speed don’t need me to validate them. I’m sure they’re enjoying their level of the fame monster just fine.

And they’re probably still more famous and more commerical than me, your favourite Edinburgh quizmaster.

Come to the quiz tonight and validate me. Win money.

Monday is great and brilliant and I should have some Cunto cards with me tonight just in case you’re looking for the best gift of 2018.

Monday Is The Best Quiz Day Of The Week

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£50. Cheat: Julia Michaels (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £120. Cheat news: Canola (pic round)

Great jackpots tonight. What’s not to love. Get to the quiz!

Cheat piece for the music round at the Brass Leith tonight, a female singer named Julia Michaels:

It’s a modern one, so it sounds kinda the same as lots of other modern hits, except with a lisp which appears to be her USP.

The “crying voice” used in these songs does my nut in. So many modern singers rely on tone of voice to convey the fact that they are sad.

I thought she looked British from the first minute or so but according to Wiki, she’s American. It doesn’t really matter but it’s funny how we need to know that sort of thing.

More interesting: she writes for others, including Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez. That might explain why she sounds a lot like them.

Monday is great and brilliant and I should have some Cunto cards with me tonight just in case you’re looking for the best gift of 2018.

Dashboard Confessional is one of those American bands that, to me at least, sound all exactly the same. I’m unimpressed but if their your favourite band ever please don’t let me piss on your chips.

My Voice Has Repaired So Come To The Quiz, It Won’t Sound So Awful This Week

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£150. Cheat: Paula Radcliffe (pic round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: The Stranglers (music round)

Jeezo. Last week’s Monday gigs were bad enough. Wednesday and Thursday were worse. I sounded like a cartoon villain in sandpaper factory.

I sounded like a frog with Tuberculosis.

I sounded like the interference between channels (millennials wont get this)

Anyway, however you describe it precisely, I generally sounded like shit.

Now, because I usually sound so damn beautiful, this was a personal tragedy. Me losing my voice is like if you lost your feet, hands and knees. In other words: not cool.

So I’m not one hundred per cent back to the golden tone, but definitely I sound a lot more like me. It is a relief.

Anyway, blah blah, here is the music for the cheat on the music round at the Safari tonight:

Song includes the lyric “who gets the job… of pushing the knob?” which by itself is enough to count the song as a WIN.

The Stranglers will not be playing live at the quiz tonight. But come along anyway. £150 is no to be breezed at.

Sunday Edinburgh Pub Quizzes

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Ashford & Simpson (music round)

Here is the music round cheat for the Tolbooth. I used to like this song when I was a kid:

The guy’s got loads of soul glow and swaggering soul-knits. And leather trousers. He looks a bit like Barry White but less fat.

I don’t know whatever happened to Ashford and Simpson. But They look like emotional people. I bet they were as deeply affected by the death of Harambe as any of us.

I think my voice is nearly back to normal. Wednesday and Thursday were horrible. Sorry if you chose to sit through that.

Thanks for the various wishes of recovery, but If you really are worried about my health, the quickest way to get me back to fitness is to buy a deck of Cunto cards.

Thanks for that!

Thursday Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Dead Cities (musc round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Netherlands (pic round)

Thursday is all about a nice pint and the cave vibe (Argyle).

Thursday is all about the uptown swagger and a possible pagger (Newsroom).

Thursday is all about cool friendly local inclusion. No judgement. (Argyle).

Thursday is all about tanning cocktails until Armageddon bears down (Newsroom).

You know – different vibes.

But, in the famous and well-known words of Scotland’s very own Marti Pellow, “THURSDAY IS WHAT YOU MAKE IT”.

Former heart-throb

Meanwhile, here is the cheat clip for tonight’s music round at the Argyle.

It’s The Exploited. The story goes that the Edinburgh punks made this appearance on Top The The Pops and subsequently the singer (Wattie) had his dole docked when he went to sign on the next week as his Dole Officer had watched the show and now recognized him as a pop star.

It’s a great story but searching online for verification has proved fruitless over the last ten minutes or so. Does anyone know if it’s true or false?

Whatever you do, don’t miss the quiz tonight. All non-attenders could potentially be raptured by Satan.

Wednesday Pub Quiz Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Open Water (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: Architects (music round)

Big jackpot got won last week at the Joker by the SPECKIES, so well done to them and it means that our biggest jackpot tonight is at the Monkey. Ninety pounds on offer.

Here’s the cheat tip for the Monkey, it’s some rotten old pop garage thing from 2000. You don’t hear stuff like this very much these days except in Dr Paul Quiz music rounds

Meanwhile, I listed the May dead pool entries this morning. Have a look at the post for more detail, but basically all the smart money has moved onto George Bush Sr. (the older, less dippit of the Bush prez duo)

Hope to see you at the quiz tonight
