Quizzes tonight: if there are any questions related to Halloween, it’ll be a co-incidence.
7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £90. Cheat: Ayr United (pic round)
9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: Barry Manilow (music round)
Aye – I’m no that bothered about Halloween although I do have a great idea for a costume for a party I’m going to on Saturday. No idea if I’ll have time to getting round to making it. It’s a washing machine.
Not that my costume choices matter to you.
What’s really important is that tonight’s jackpots are both £90 and also tonight is your last chance to enter the Dead Pool game for November
What you’re dying to know is which Barry Manilow song has made it to the Brass Monkey music round tonight. Well, it’s this one:
There’s a shitty one on youtube which, although better video quality, is thoroughly depressing as Baz is all plastic age-face and, as gives the impression of a tired old performer as he sleep-walks through the song.
But in his day, Manilow was the best.
I saw him at least twice live (it might be three times but I can’t rightly recall). The guy is a showman. Not quite Freddie Mercury, but pretty damn good.
Which reminds me: go and see Bohemian Rhapsody. It is excellent.
And if you’re coming to the quiz tonight, don’t be a fanny. Thanks.
