Eurovision is over. So I’ll maybe shut up about it now for a few months. Thanks for listening.

For tonight’s quiz at the Persevere, here is the music round cheat answer, which is Nina Simone:

Proper stuff

That’s real talent.

Anyway, I was up late and since I got up this morning I’ve been checking out Eurovision stuff online so I’ll keep this post brief and get it posted.

Yo!

See you at the quiz tonight.

Sunday 12th May 2019

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Whitney Houston (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Wasp (pic round)

The weekend flies away like a dandelion on the breeze. Make sure you at least catch a wee Sunday night out before the grind returns tomorrow.

Here is the music round cheat answer for tonight’s quiz at the Tolbooth:

Crushing pop in 1987

It’s One Direction. You know, it’s been nine years since One Direction were put together for X-Factor.

That means they’re long enough in the tooth to have grizzled expressions while sucking vodka and recalling their long decade “in the game”.

I looked up one of them and it turns out he is 27 years old and worth £42 million.

Seriously. Wee prick.

Mind you, I guess it’s the people who buy all the products who are the pricks. Did you know you can get One Direction Twister?

One Direction Twister
Blimey

Anyway, with that kind of cash floating around, it’s unlikely that any of One Direction themselves will be at the quizzes tonight.

But there’s every chance that you might bump into one of ? Del Amitri or maybe someone who used to play for East Fife. Celeb spotting is still possible at the Dr Paul Quiz.

See you at the quiz tonight.

Sunday 5th May 2019

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Whitney Houston (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Wasp (pic round)

Nice and calm at the Percy this week cos the Hibees are not at home, they’re away playing Rangers in Glasgow. Suits me.

Also, there’s a ninety quid pot bubbled up some come and get a face full of cash at the Persevere.

You can also get your dinner there; the food looks pretty good.

Meanwhile at The Tolbooth, we’re well into tourist season which means there’s usually an American team to take the piss out of. Happy days! (For the hard-of-thinking, the previous line is a JOKE.) Americans are welcome and respected).

And even though the the Rubber Gun Squad may be there tonight, they’ll be an easier team than usual to beat because they’ll glued to the World Snooker Championships final.

You know, I actually had a list round out with me the other week where I was going to ask to name any five quarter-finalists from last year’s snooker world championships.

But looking around the room, I realised that there was not one single team who looked liked they cared about snooker enough to really know what it is, let alone answer the question.

So I dropped the question. Was I right? Or are you all secret snooker fans? Let me know in the comments or approach me at the quiz with the word “I like snooker too actually”.

We’ll see.

Anyway, if you are coming tonight (to the quiz) you’ll need the free answers – here’s the music round cheat for tonight’s quiz at the Persevere:

Crushing pop in 1987

Wow! It’s Whitney Houston when she was the Queen of Pop Music.

Anyway, come and join us at the quizzes tonight. You’ll love it.

See you at the quiz tonight.

Sunday Night’s All Right For Quizzing

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Dad’s Army (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: The Orb (music round)

Sunday night was OK last week despite a hom Hibs game on a Sunday, which the SFA have seen to provide THREE of in the post-split season. Thanks.

Hopefully tonight will be the same. Put it this way: if Hearts win there is more chance of the quiz being viable as most of the Hibs traffic then goes home.

We’ll see.

Anyway, if you are coming tonight (to the quiz) you’ll need the free answers – here’s the music round cheat for tonight’s quiz at the Tolbooth Tavern:

Wibbly Wobbly

It’s The Orb in the early 90s when everyone was riding high on some kind of spiritual and medical horse. It was cool. You had to be there.

Anyway, come and join us at the quizzes tonight. You’ll love it.

By the way – it’s Dead Pool time of month. You can get your entry in for May tonight

See you at the quiz tonight.

Sunday 17th March

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Tanita Tikaram (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Horse Racing (pic round)

Sunday: like a cake full of sawdust heralding the empty week.

The best thing you can do to oppose this sawdust paradigm is go to the quiz where it is possible to win money, booze and the respect of your friends in a friendly knowledge-based contest which rewards a sneaky combination of smarts and luck.

I love it when you come to the quiz. I could kiss every one of you. Anyway. Here’s the music round cheat for tonight’s quiz at the Persevere:

This is jaunty tune but also strangely depressing. I remember when it came out and I couldn’t decide whether I quite liked it or totally hated it.

I’m still torn.

So there you have it: in thirty years I have learned nothing. Well nothing in terms of Tanita Tikaram anyway.

Although, having said that I was looking her up the other day on Wikipedia and discovered she was born in Germany. That’s proper trivial, in the sense that it’s information that can be of no proper use.

Another item which is not really a fact came from one of the youtube comments which pointed out that she looks like Elvis.

This is another type of learning: something that I always knew but never really thought of until someone pointed it out.

But also useless in terms of knowledge. What do we know and why do we remember it? This is PhD stuff. I’d better leave it there. It’s Sunday.

Anyway – come to the quiz.

See you later.

Sun 17th Feb. Valentine’s Day Is Over

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Charlie XCX (music round)

Sunday night doesn’t get better than this: a wee walk to the pub. A thrilling Dr Paul quiz, perhaps with a win, perhaps not. Then a few more pints of wine, a daunder home via the chippy and then watch Das Boot on Netflix.

Such perfection could be yours… tonight!

For the quiz at the Tolbooth, here is the video for tonight’s music round free answer:

This is one of those pop videos that’s intercut with scenes from a film in which the song was used. The film is ‘The Fault In Our Stars’ in which young Americans with terminal cancer visit Amsterdam, fall in love and die.

I just read the Wikipedia summary, I haven’t seen the film and probably won’t because I usually watch films for entertainment and terminal cancer just doesn’t cut it for me as a leisure activity.

For exampe I watched ‘Rio‘ with my daughter the other day which is an animated film about parrots and monkeys with loads of songs and jokes. That was more like it.

Having said that, The Fault In Our Stars did well and has good ratings. If it’s your kind of gig then it looks like a good film.

Anyway – no one is going to die at the quiz tonight. That’s my prediction anyway.

See you later.

Ooh hah.

Sun 20th Jan – Sunday Quizzes Tonight

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Olly Murs (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Brazil (pic round)

Yeah – everyone loves Sunday. What a day.

Come and have yourself a wee night out. If you never go out on Sunday because you are frightened of what it might do to you on Monday morning, I’d say try it.

The quizzes are earlier on a Sunday – the Persevere starts at six and is done by half  even. The latest the Tolbooth finishes is about quarter to ten. Perfectly reasonable.

Anyhow, here is the video for tonight’s music round free answer which relates to the Persevere quiz at 8pm:

It’s Olly Murs. I have nothing to say about him. It’s like looking at a beige cushion on a beige sofa. He’s that interesting. How is it possible to be that many different kinds on bland in one entertainer? I don’t know. By the way: correct me if I’m wrong. Maybe there’s something about him that breaks the mould?

Anyway, get yourself to the quiz and we’ll have some quiz-fact-charged and prize-driven fun when you do.

Yeah.

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Peter Howson (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: “Jane” (music round)

Sunday Sunday. So good to me.

Voice is better this week. Don’t be afraid of a croaky QM. Come quiz.

Here is the video for tonight’s music round free answer which relates to the Tolbooth quiz at 8pm:

Obviously it’s Rod Stewart but the info you need is “Jane”. The round is looking for girls names that are in the song title.

Anyway, get yourself to the quiz and we’ll have some trivia-related and prize-based fun when you do.

Yeah.
