Monday shoots out of the monthly cannon like a burst-ball grapeshot of devastation and quiz questions and fire.
Here’s the music round cheat for the Safari tonight:
It’s Eddy Grant. This was a hit when I was a kid and I loved his video – loved the whole raft thing. It made me want a raft. I’ve been of rafts since then and they pretty much lived up to expectations.
Rafts are cool.
I’d rather have a raft than a Tory government.
But you take what you can get. Sometimes rafts just aren’t available.
If you win £80 (over the two quizzes) tonight you could probably buy stuff to make a decent raft. You could sail down the Water of Leith. The chances of dying are slim. There’s a weir just after Saint Mark’s park but I don’t think it’s too serious. You could portage.
I reckon if you get in the river just below the massive big waterfall thing near Dean Bridge, you could get all the way down to the docks.
Does anyone know anyone who’s tried it? Comments below pls!
See ya later – x

Monday has appeared like a creepy ghost of last week. And just like last week there are two quizzes tonight but that’s the last time that will happen as young quizmaster Joshua will be starting at the Saint Andrews Brewing Company as from next Monday.
Joshua is a hip young quizmaster with many questions and answers ahead of him. you’ll like him!
Meanwhile, here is the cheat music for tonight’s quiz at the Safari. It’s 80s super-legends the Fine Young Cannibals .
Well – I call them super-legends, but I don’t think The Fine Young Cannibals had a huge amount of hits.
They just showed up, defined mid-80s UK pop and then fucked off again before becoming tired, worn-out and irrelevant, unlike, arguably, The Pet Shop Boys.
In fact, looking up their discography I discover that they had 5 x Top Ten hits and lasted for about five years. These are the right numbers for a pop band.
So that’s the way the biscuit breaks this fine Monday morning. Get out there and be the best human you can be. Yes. Inspirational. Truly.

Do you even know what a Chinchilla is? It’s a furry wee thing. Very furry in fact: I just learned from Wikipedia that Chinchillas have the densest fur of any land-mammal. Howzaboutthatthen?
And now: the music round free answer, it applies to the Brass Monkey Leith and it a classic club banger by Rosie Gaines:
We all used to shake to this back in the day and probably would shake again if someone drags us out to a wedding.
Anyway: vegetarians, vagitarians, straight, gay, lesbian, homosexual, Lithuanian people, penguins, right-wingers, left-wingers, centre-forwards , you’re all welcome to the quiz tonight. Let there be no walls.

It’s hitting week three of the Fringe and everyone has had enough. Edinburgh is a nightmare. You can’t GET anywhere. You can’t get served anywhere without an enormous queue.
Well, not exactly.
Of course, the simple solution is that all you have to do is step OUTSIDE the city centre.
I knew a woman from Down South who once had a fringe show on Broughton Street, very near the Cask & Barrel, or whatever that big boozer is called (on the corner of London Street). I remarked that it was a good venue, city centre and she looked at me like I was mad.
As far as she was concerned, Broughton Street could have been the moon. She said NO ONE would come to her show – it was too far away.
So that’s the festival mentality: If it’s not EH1 then it can get tae fuck.
The upside of this is that the city remains relatively calm outside the bubble o’madness. So get yourself to Leith, get yourself to Abbeyhill if you need a break from the city centre crazies.
Come and do the quiz. And win things. And be happy.
Here’s tonight’s music round cheat which applies to the early quiz at Brass Monkey Leith:
Best youtube comment for this comes from someone called Kevin:
“Came for the song, stayed for the chest hair. Not gay.”
Tonight’s quizzes are located less than a mile apart. You could, feasibly, do the double.
First one at the Brass Leith concludes at 8.30pm and the second one at the Safari Lounge begins at 9pm (although I don’t usually hit the first question until about 10 past or quarter past)
