Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £120. Cheat: Walrus (pic round)

Another two rollovers last Wednesday so tonight’s pots are over a hundred quid each and getting bulbuous and exciting like something organic and bursty.

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey quiz. It’s Jethro Tull, the band that named themselves after the man who invented the seed drill.

The video’s a bit ropey, but.

Meanwhile, here’s what people look like when they win the quiz. Clock the satisfaction:

Yo!

Dr P

Thursday Makes Monsters Out of Moles

Quizzes Tonight:

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

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

The other great thing about tonight’s quiz at the Argyle is your chance to meet the organisers of Pint Fest, Scotland’s newest boutique music festival which is taking place in a back garden in Marchmont in May sometime.

The organisers live over the road from the Argyle and chose last week’s quiz to launch their extravaganza.

No bands booked when I last checked but it seems likely to be the event of the summer.

I hope they manage to book Suede.

I always liked Suede and I really liked this when it came out. But it seemed that no one agreed and it was the death of their glory days. Suede was over. Suede was finished. People moved on.

This is the cheat tune for tonight’s music quiz at the Argyle:

After that it was Radiohead and the Strokes and the Arctic Monkeys all that nonsense, as far as guitars were concerned. None of them as good as Suede.

Anyway, you’ll hear approximately twenty seconds of the glory of Suede tonight. Maybe I should fill up my playlists with some of their other terrific works.

By the way – don’t miss Cunto Cards. Still some first edition packs left. Stop me and buy a pack at the quiz or get them online at cunto.org

Monday Night – Last Big Jackpot Standing

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot:£300. Cheat: George Harrison (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £240. Cheat news: Saffron (pic round)

Last Monday was a red-letter day for Luiz Araujo, who have been teetering on the brink of greatness for several months.

After a string of bad fortune on other weeks, their persistence paid off and they bagged £240 last Monday at the Safari. It was a great moment:

Earlier on in the evening, no one managed to nail down to Brass Monkey Leith jackpot, so from a pool of recent large jackpots, tonight is the last one remaining intact.

Come and win £300 tonight. Yes: three hundred pounds.

Here’s the cheat info: a music clip from the music round at Brass Monkey Leith tonight…

It’s George Harrison of The Beatles doing a solo number. I don’t usually go for stuff that’s overtly ‘nice’ but there’s a something about the song. It’s a good ‘un.

By the way, my side project is CUNTO. It’s amazing and you can buy a pack now.

Sunday Night Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Jean Michel Jarre (music round)

Here is the music round cheat info for the Tolbooth: a stunning clip of super-French-ness from the master of all things electronique, Monsieur Jean-Michel Jarre.

Listen very carefully, he will only play this once. (Unless you put the video on repeat).

Meanwhile , people keep asking me about Brexit, Russia and what it all means for the quiz.

Well, I put a report into the British Union of Analysts and asked them to prognosticate.

The bottom line is that Russians murdering their spies and Britain leaving Europe is set to have MINIMAL IMPACT on the quiz.

For this, we should all be grateful.

Sensational Jackpot Monday Night Edinburgh Pub Quiz Action

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

7pm – Brass Monkey Leith. Jackpot: 200. Cheat: Chocolate Puma (music round)

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £210. Cheat news: Othello (pic round)

Absolutely loads of money on offer at the quizzes tonight. The kind of money that gets Warren Buffet greased and Elon Musk hard.

Be part of it. Say you were there and be ready to tell the story about the time you went to both Monday night Dr Paul quizzes, won both jackpots and cleared more than £400 in Great British Pounds.

Here’s the video for a clip from tonight’s music round at the Brass LEith. It’s from 2001 and sounds EXACTLY like 2001. I think it perhaps THE most typical track of 2001. Even more so.

Except may Rui Da Silva, DJ Pied Piper and Roger Sanchez

The first of those three links is particularly 2001 because it’s introduced by Gail Porter and she references Jamie Theakston.

I think the sample in the Rui Da Silva song is Spandau Ballet, but I can’t quite place it.

If I wasn’t a quizmaster I think I’d produce electronic dance music, mainly built around samples of Spandau Ballet, Simple Minds, and Duran Duran songs of the early 1980s. It sounds like a decent way to make money.

It also sounds like an easy way to make fuck all money. I think there are quite a few procuders of electronic dance music based on old pop. I think it’s a buyers’ market.

So I’ll probably stick to quizzes just now. And of course, Cunto.

What is Cunto? Cunto is like Top Trumps but the deck is stacked with utter cunts. It’s my new invention and you can buy a pack now.

Who’s in the deck? Donald Trump and 43 other prime cunts. That’s who

CANCELLED: Thursday Night Quiz Action In The Great Town of Edinburgh

UPDATE: TONIGHT’S QUIZZES NOW CANCELLED DUE TO STUPID WEATHER.

Image result for cancelled

Quizzes Tonight:

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

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

Phwooar. £100 at the Newsroom. Easy money! Don’t forget – Newsroom is the THICKEST PUB OF THE WEEK, due to the higher proportion of blow-ins and randoms rather than proper quiz teams. Come and take them on – take their money!

Meanwhile, here’s The Editors who look like they’ve just completed their course in reading gas meters and offering replacement ‘smart’ meters rather than a rock band. Just my opinion.

And they are very tiny, they live inside a lightbulb. This inspires no one. According to Wikipedia, NME labelled their sound as “dark disco“. Disco? Not much of a disco.

This is how white boys do real disco:

We Love Wednesday It’s So Great

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Renault Clio (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £150 Cheat: Martin Solveig (music round)

 

Two rollovers last midweek sets up a cheeky Wednesday for your pocket. One-fifty at the Monkey. That’s like.. great.

How about the music round cheat? Here it is:

 

This is a modern song but I like it. I thought it was much more produced, but it’s pretty bare. The video is good as well. Nothing really happens except a lift gets faster and people become more extreme versions of themselves as the lift speeds up.
