Mon11th Feb – Monday Pub Quiz Action

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

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

This is Monday. The start of something big. Or just bloody half-term, if you have kids.

Don’t have kids? See people looking frazzled? Wondering what the problem is? It’s half-term.

Anyway, that’ not important. What IS important is the quiz,

Here’s the cheat music for tonight’s quiz at the Safari. It’s one of my own favourite acts, The Pixies.

I couldn’t find a decent video, so it’s just music. Worth a listen though.

So it’s minimum jackpots at the quizzes tonight but come along anyway. Your knowledge, wit and good looks may be enough to snare a lover. It is, after all, Valentine‘s week – and in those few days leading up to the 14th, some single people get just a little more desperate.

But there are plenty of others who couldn’t care less, so don’t make assumptions. Just be yourself.

Mon 4th Feb – Pub Quiz Action Tonite

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

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

Monday looks you up and down and makes a snap judgement, based on your appearance.

Monday says “Go on. Have a drink

Will you be rude to Monday, the day that means you no harm and yet you curse its name?

Or will you be good and comply?

I’ll leave that with you but, in the meantime, the cheat music for tonight’s quiz at the Brass Monkey Leith. It’s King Crimson who are some proper old hippy shit. They used to knock out the prog and all the hairies would buy in, all the way in.

Some call it “over-indulgence” but, musically, I like the flute in it. And the bass and the drums and the singing. Far out man.

I couldn’t find any good footage of the band doing the song so here’s someone’s drippy fan video with lots of stop=motion and observatory and outer space stuff:

I talk to the wind? Fair enough. Actually I prefer the Demis Roussos song about being besties with the wind.

So it’s minimum jackpots at the quizzes tonight but come along anyway. Your knowledge, wit and good looks may be enough to snare a lover.

Mon 21st Jan 2019 – Monday Night Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £90. Cheat news: UB40 (music round)

It’s Monday. Time to tie rockets to your feet and escape reality via a cylinder of truth in the fabric of Leith, awash with colour, light and liquids beyond your control.

What does this mean?

It means come to the quiz and win money. Bring your friends (the relatively smart ones) and prepare yourself for win.

Safari is up to £90 so maybe see you there or, just come to the Brass Monkey Leith. They’re both beautiful. It’s up to you.

Anyway, here’s the cheat music for tonight’s quiz at the Safari Lounge. It’s a fat old 80s pop banger from the Birmingham supergroup UB40:

The video is from 1986 when UB40 were huge in Britain and, apparently, big enough in Russia to go on tour to the Soviet Union. The video includes footage of the band behind the Iron Curtain, something not many bands did in those days.

Remember: I don’t do drugs, so most of the marking at my quizzes is sound. It’s the Dr Paul promise.

Monday 7th Jan 2019

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Guns n Roses (music round)

Welcome back! Everything is normal. Everything is great. I love New Years.

Here is the bonus free answer you get for reading this. It’s old-time rockers Guns n Roses, who seemed so wild in the 80s and, looking back, seem so tame.

Watching bits of the video, it’s clear that Guns n Roses had a policy to keep moving on stage, running if possible. I’m guessing this is a calculated move, designed to make sure the show remains visually exciting at all times. It doesn’t look spontaneous. I ain’t saying this is a bad thing – just an observation.

Anyhow: I don’t have a lot else to say today except I hope you all had a great New Year and I hope to see you at the quiz tonight.

Everything is normal again. I’m happy.

Yo,

Dr P

Mon 17th Dec – Quizzes Tonight In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £90. Cheat news: The Isle of Wight (pic round)

Tonight’s quizzes are the last Monday quizzes before Christmas. I’ll be off next Monday (Christmas Eve)

The Monday after that is Hogmanay and I will only be doing the Brass Monkey Leith and the quiz will be earlier. (5pm).

This is because at this time most of you will NOT be out of your boxes on booze; the quiz will still be possible.

Anyway, that’s next week. Now, here’s the reward for reading this post:  a free answer for tonight’s music round at the Brass Monkey Leith.

Ahh, it’s Blanche fae Belgium. A few commentators had her down as favourite for the Eurovision in 2017. The song is cool and modern. But the consensus was that her performance let the song down.

In the end it finished fourth. Fair play

Mon 3rd Dec – Quizzes Tonight In Edinburgh

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

9pm – Safari Lounge. Jackpot £60. Cheat news: Meryl Streep (pic round)

It’s December and its Monday. This is more depressing that being forced to crush four hundred snails to death, one after the other, to death, in a vice.

The only cure is to come to the quiz.

Now, here is the free answer for tonight’s Music round at the Brass Monkey Leith.

It’s an old eighties number, very dramatic and emotional and soft rock style.

For thirty years I thought Cutting Crew were from Northern Ireland but just looked them up on Wiki and it seems they are from the South of England.

I wonder where I got my misconception? I was probably listening to Gary Davies or Peter Powell or one of these wanks on Radio 1 back in 1986 and they said something and I misheard it as “Cutting Crew are from Northern Ireland”.

What did the DJ really say? Probably said something like “Maggie Thatcher is Great. Fuck the miners” cos they were all solid Tories back in those days.

Best Top Winner At The Safari Lounge

I don’t always give out a prize for Best Top, but if I see an absolute belter of a top and I happen to have a prize on me, then I do.

Luckily I had a £10,000 scratchcard to hand when this woman lit up the Safari Lounge the other week:

Best top - pink jumper at Dr Paul Quiz Safari Lounge
An obvious winner

It’s a cracker and even the usually fashion-first Robert can only watch in deep appreciation and envy.

I can’t remember her name but well done, whoever you are!

Hey. We got ourselves a Monday. Can you imagine the week without Monday?

Imagine if the week just went straight from Sunday to Tuesday with nothing in between. No Monday. How weird would that be?

And people might wish for it, the kind of people who profess to hate Mondays but I guarantee you it wouldn’t be long before EVERYONE missed Mondays.

Careful what you wish for, folks.

Now, here is the free answer for tonight’s Music round at the Safari Lounge

The video is a live version while the music round clip is a studio version. They bear some resemblance to each other, but be careful

Quizzes in Edinburgh Tonight:

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

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

Come and join the smooth-party tonight at the quiz. Mmmmm, sweet.

By the way, the music cheat is for the Brass Monkey Leith tonight and it is Janet Jackson and it sounds like this:
