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

Wednesday Pub Quiz – Crying Gets You Nowhere

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £60 Cheat: No Doubt (music round)

This time last week, England could still win the world cup. Today all we have is pub quiz team names like this:

Gareth Southgate's Tear Stained Waistcoat
Gareth Southgate’s Tear Stained Waistcoat

Crying gets you nowhere.

This also applies to protest. Last weekend’s anti-Trump stuff may have been amusing in a rattle-your-jewellery kind of a way, but it was essentially bleating.

Note to demonstrators – No one will take your protest seriously unless you smash things up. Making puns = zero change.

This has nothing to do with the quiz, it’s just my tuppenceworth.

More related to your chances of quiz success: here is a clip from tonight’s music round at the Brass Monkey Drummond Street:

I’ve heard this so many times that it gets samey, but just watching the video reminds me what a good song it is.

I remember when it came out, it was number one for ninety weeks and everyone was talking about how it was a breakup song between singer Gwen Stefani and the bass player. Pure Fleetwood Mac.

Anyway, world cup is over and No Doubt was the nineties. Come and experience modern times in the pub tonight. With the quiz

And, if you’re looking for the kind of foul-mouthed treat that only a theraputic hit like Cunto Cards can provide, I will have a couple of decks with me tonight. Stop me and buy one…

Monday Satisfaction

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Roxy Music (music round)

No football to ruin everything tonight, so let’s take this moment to feel our good selves right and release the inner trivia god that lurks within us all.

The music round at the Safari tonight includes this all time glam bang:

There is nothing as good as Roxy Music. They are the greatest band of all. Apart from maybe Queen or ABBA. But you know what I mean.

The full version of the song is worth watching. They really go for it.

By the way 2018 Cunto Cards are back in stock so stop me and buy a deck if you want to get in on the action. Or click on the image below to buy them online…

Wednesday Pub Quiz Action (Edinburgh)

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £120 Cheat: Macklemore (music round)

Here’s the music round cheat for the Joker:

The song is pish, the video is worse.

It looks like it was made by the same people that make those beer adverts where a perfectly constructed cross-section of races all go to a festival and everyone has a great (and yet meaningful) time.

The racial cross-section is always perfectly constructed in this scenario. But the rule is no oldies and no uggos. Everyone comes from a catalogue. With the possible exception of one fat person who is a lot of “fun”.

At the same time as diversity is rigidly ticked-off, stereotypes abound. A proper load of shite.

Anyway, as luck would have it the music round includes neither the turd of a video nor any clip longer than twenty seconds, “so we’re good” as the people in the shit video would undoubtedly say.

By the way: A HUNDRED AND TWENTY QUID AT THE MONKEY TONIGHT. That’s pretty good. I imagine all the stars will be turning up for that: Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, etc.

Tom Hanks and Emma Watson at Dr Paul quiz
Every single time

Incidentally Cunto Cards are back in stock and I will have a few decks with me tonight if you’re looking for a pack.

Yo!

Wednesday Pub Quiz Scene In Funky Bonnie Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

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

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £120 Cheat: George Michael (pic round)

It’s Eurovision week, so I can hardly think about the quizzes properly due to the proper Eurovision excitement.

Did you see the first semi-final last night? Fucking magic.

Anyway, Here’s the music round cheat info for the quiz at the Joker tonight: it’s a dance music song with a fairly standard dance music video. But the video DOES include a lauderette so ye cannae beat that.

I wonder if there’s a playlist anywhere on youtube that just has pop music videos which include a lauderette as a location?

Maybe.

It’s 2018 and things are reaching that point where if you can think of it then it already exists, thanks to old father internet.

 

When was the last time you disco danced in a launderette? For me, the answer would be “the early 90s”.

Hope to see you at the quiz tonight

Monday Monkey and Safari

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Liverpool (pic round)

Hey. Come out and win the cash tonight. First rollover for a while at the Brass so we offer you £100 tonight.

Get your fist round it.

Meanwhile, here’s the video which reveals the cheat clue for tonight’s music round at the Brass Monkey Leith:

It’s got 42 million views so you’ve probably already seen it.

It’s possibly the most standard modern pop song I’ve ever seen. It’s got  cars and Taio Cruz is singing about how he likes a girl who has a body “like a rock guitar”.

Really?

Another hundred-percent-predictable feature is the youtube comments which all say “thumbs up if you’re watching this in 2018” while none of them question Cruz’s “rock guitar” analogy.

Thursday Night Pub Quiz Action In The Great City of Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

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

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

Thursday offers you the chance for Marchmont middle-class niceness and manners or dirty city-centre cocktail mayhem.

Both involve a bloody good quiz at the heart of it. That’s the engine of this night out, the driver.

If you’re coming to the quiz tonight, be aware of the cheats mentioned in the details above. It’s like a free answer. Here is the cheat clip for tonight’s’ Argyle music round. It’s your old pal Stevie Wonder who was the Stephen Hawking of his day but with more groove and less interstellar physics.

That’s eighties Stevie Wonder. Good song. Solid pop. But not as cool as seventies Stevie, especially when he was on Sesame Street:

He didn’t just fanny about with Grover either, he also laid down Superstition with full funk force. On the street, for the kids. Intense:

MAke all your Stevie Wonder jokes if you like but let’s see Stephen Hawking doing something like this. ANYTHING as good as this. No. Didn’t think so.

Cool.

You know what? The mood is too high. Here’s a picture of the sefront at Prestonpans just to mute things a bit:

Sunday Night – Good Jackpots Are On Offer Tonight. Will You Be Tempted Out

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Moscow (pic round)

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

Both jackpots have reached a good level for tonight’s quizzes. Will you be tempted out of your nest and your Netflix and your solitude and your depression?

I thoroughly recommend making a social out of Sunday before the creeping darkness of loneliness overcomes you.

Here is the music round cheat info: a clip from tonight’s music round at the Tolbooth:

 

FACT: This pop video has more hair than the cat and dog home at Portobello. It is great.

By the way, if you see Phil Collins anywhere on the internet, remember to alert the authorities, as his campaign to control the mind of every living soul is gaining ground.

Whatever you do, don’t look him in the eye.

Turn away.

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:

The Weekend Has Opened Its Landing Gear…

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Rudyard Kipling (pic round)

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

Thursday is a great day to come to the quiz. Take it from me. I do all the nights and I know that people on Thursdays are among the most sane. Maybe its just the bars I do on Thursdays.

The Argyle has sane young students with bright futures. The Newsroom has sane office people, holding lives together including full-on adult shit like jobs and relationships and parenting and making enough cash to afford cocktails and wine.

Meanwhile, here’s Die Antwoord who pretty much make the best pop videos. This one is in the music round at the Newsroom tonight:

 

Cannae beat Die Antwoord. Best band since Tatu and/or S club 7
