Sunday 28th October 2018 – Quizzes Tonight In Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Mister Strong (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Alice Cooper (music round)

Last week’s dance-off at the Persevere probably cannot be beaten but at least its a rollover.

Taking on a six-year old at dancing? It’s not going to work is it? Good effort from Davey though, a bold performance under the circumstances.

Anyway – here’s Alice Cooper making a perfectly serviceable but ultimately musically uninspiring hair-metal rock-ballad into something better by dressing up for the video:

I never really “got” Alice Cooper. I reckon that glam metal stuff was for blokes who were too scared to be into Human League or Roxy Music in case they got called a poof.

The code was that the greasy look-made people think you were definitely a “proper man”. The make-up and the spandex were still there but “covered” by the leather and the motorbikes.

By the way, Sunday has a meetup group who come along to the quiz.

Yeah.

Sunday Night Pub Quiz. Come to Leith. Come to the Canongate.

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

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

Hey – it’s raining again and a bit colder. What happened to that summer? It’s only been away for a week. I miss it already.

Anyway – one thing that is NOT affected is the quiz. Sunday night provides two excellent experiences. Try one. Try both.

Again, it’s late in the day, so I’m just going to cut straight into the free music round answer which relates to the Tolbooth Tavern quiz tonight:

I was watching one of the “Story Of…” Top of The Pops documentaries the other night (one year per episode) and the 1981 episode was saying that this performance of the Birdie Dance (by The Tweets) was the very last appearance of Legs & Co. on Top of The Pops.

They had been the house dancers for years and, judging from their contribution to the docco, they are still pissed off that The Birdie Song was their swan song.

The song gets a bad press. It was also voted “Most annoying song ever” in a poll by dotmusic in 2000.

It was also voted as “Least Metal Moment of All Time” by VH1, specifically the time that Vince Neil out of Motley Crue led the annual Chicken Dance at the annual Oktoberfest in Cincinnati.

See you at the quiz tonight!

Yo!

Sunday Quiz

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £150. Cheat: Jesus Christ Superstar (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Fine Young Cannibals (music round)

The music round cheat for the Persevere is a big hit from the 80s. No one had a voice like Roland Gift.

It still bangs.

World Cup

I’m personally pleased that England are NOT in the final. Not from a petty shit-hate point of view, but more for the fact that the pub (the Persevere) will largely be neutral this afternoon, which is usually a better atmosphere.

My only wish for the final this afternoon is that it concludes in normal time. If so then the quiz will go ahead as usual at 6pm.

If it goes to extra time we may have to start a little later, but either way there WILL be a quiz.

The quiz at the Tolbooth is unaffected.

Yo!

Sunday Night Out At The Quiz

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: PJ Harvey (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £150. Cheat: Babylon 5 (pic round)

A hundred and fifty quid? You could buy twelve packs of Cunto Cards for that

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

FACT: PJ Harvey has an MBE for services to music and she is still the only artist (so far) to win the Mercury Music Award twice.

 

Hope to see you at the quizzes tonight.

Sunday Night Edinburgh – Pub Quiz Your Way To Happiness

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Plan B (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Natalie Portman (pic round)

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

The video has a courtroom theme. I was immediately bored by it and the music itself. You may feel differently. That’s the wonder of human taste.

In the (near) future when everything is dominated by robots, there will be no choice or variety, no human moments and utter darkness and metallic bleakness wherever you look.

If I survive the initial onslaught of the killer robot soldiers I will long and pine for the days when something like “She Said” by “Plan B” was even possible.

So let’s not be too hard on the guy.

By the way, ninety quid jackpot at both quizzes tonight. Not bad at all!
