Here is the music round cheat for the Percy. It’s Kula Shaker who were popular for fifteen minutes round about 1996. I always associate them with Tony Blair and Chris Evans. It was those kinds of times…
Nothing more to say today except wasn’t Eurovision great as usual? By the way I am so sick of people attributing UK failure to Brexit and saying things like “it’s all political”. Total nonsense. Here’s why:
1. It’s got nothing to do with Brexit. The UK has been getting shit scores for years, including before Brexit. Try putting in a good song.
2. It’s got nothing to with Brexit part 2. There are 43 nations participating this year and a third of them are not EU members anyway. Try putting in a good song.
3. It’s all politics. Yeah, how come Israel won? Everyone hates them more than they hate the UK. Thing is, they entered a good song.
Drives me nuts like, British people complaining about how the Eurovision is unfair. My idea would be to try putting in a good song.
You’ll recognise the cheat-music clip from the Persevere music round tonight. It’s a 1991 super-classic:
Mental. Not as mental as anyone who bothered visiting Hampden the other night to witness the most inevitable 0-1 home defeat of all time.
I don’t even know why this is in my head. I’ve found it harder and harder and harder to give hoot what Scotland is doing in football as the years wear on. What’s that? 20 years ago now since France 98. Le sigh.
Does it mean a walk in the countryside? Maybe. But with those midgies and lack of toilet facilities? Maybe not.
Does it mean sex? Maybe. But with those performance issues and gender politics? Maybe not.
Does it mean humping the opposition at pub quiz? Of course it does. Get your shot of pleasure. Tonight:
6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: the music round includes an act named 5 Seconds of Summer. See vid below for the tune. It’s some weepy-weepy snowflake boyband shit.
8pm – The Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: The picture round includes the answer Apocalypse Now. It’s a film about th Vietnam War. It’s supposed to be genius but the only time I saw it I fell asleep. I’m not saying it’s a bad film, it’s just a bit long and I was a bit knackered.
