Sunday 9th June 2019

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

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

Tonight, the quiz at the Persevere is competing with Scotland v England in the Women’s World Cup (kick-off 5pm).

And I’ll tell you: I have no idea how this is going to work out.

If this was the men’s world cup, the pub would be fairly busy.

If this was the men’s world cup and it was Scotland, the place would be stowed.

If this was the men’s world cup and it was Scotland v England, the Percy would be inaccessible due to bedlam and heavy drinking would have commenced more than two days ago. Some people would be in hospital. Pub security staff would be getting about fifty quid an hour. The chances of the quiz happening would be less than a fly’s chance of surviving being shagged by Gary Lineker.

But it’s the women’s world cup so this far less predictable. The Women’s World Cup ha a history of low interest from the public.

But then it is the first time Scotland have qualified for the women’s tournament, and it’s the first time Scotland have qualified for any World Cup tournament for over 20 years.

And there has been a bit more hype this time. And there’s a chance we could get it right up England who, as the BBC keep telling us, are far better than everyone else.

So you never know.

Anyway – my prediction is that the quiz WILL go ahead. Come and play.

Meanwhile, here’s the music round cheat answer for the Tolbooth Tavern tonight which is The Pixies:

Pixies Fan Art Vid

Love the Pixies. They never really made a lot of videos. This is by a fan and it’s what you would call impressionistic. Good though.

Anyway, enjoy the World Cup, enjoy the quizzes. I hope you win the quiz and I hope Scotland get it right up the so-called Lionesses.

England are favourites but sometimes you have to dare to dream, as we say in Eurovision.

Sometimes

Scotland in pink

Scotland aint so bad.

See you at the quiz tonight.

Yo!

Sunday 3rd March – Quizzes Tonight


Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Arctic Monkeys (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Magnum (pic round)

Come on. It’s Sunday. But don’t go out for a full Scottish, just hold it.

Think about your health. I know I’m not one talk but we need to watch what we’re eating.

A far more sensible idea is to have some porridge or kale or something and just HOLD YOUR FIRE till this evening.

Then go out and get wellied at the quiz.

See? Tactical!

And now, here is the video for tonight’s cheat answer at the Persevere.

Live, likes, but fairly faithful to the record so if you listen to this you’ll know what’s what in the music round.

By the way, see if you’re a Chinese computer spammer, please go and kill yourself. I just got seventeen thousand emails (literal number- not exaggeration) all in Chinese. Took me ages to delete them and it’s just annoying so please kill yourself, spammer. Thanks. Or at least piss off.

My daughter reminds me, however, to look on the bright side. So here’s a picture of Zippy and Geoffrey in happier times, before the REAPER…

Zippy has been on the booze a lot since Geoffrey died. Some of the outcomes are not pretty. SO let’s remember the sunlight and the loving, rather than focussing on the darkness and grieving. Or the substance abuse and the dwindling hope of joy in a world that simply doesn’t care.

Am I doing this positivity right?

Anyway – come to the quiz.

See you later.

Ooh hah.

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Bastille (music round)

Sunday night’s quizzes are always cool. There’s a friendly breeze blows through both Sunday boozers. Come and feel it tickle your nadgers* tonight.

*(pan-gender variety)

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

I have nothing to say about this song except that I don’t like the guy’s voice (it’s another instance of “the crying voice” which is so prevalent in modern pop) and it sounds too close to C*ldplay to be allowed.

Luckily the clip for the music round is less than twenty seconds long, so it’ll be over quickly like a small spoon of bad medicine.

Anyway, see you at the quiz tonight and don’t forget your coat, cos it’s November and you wouldny want to be cutting about with nae coat.

Yeah.

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.

Quizzes Tonight

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Haysi Fantayzee (music round)

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

Tonight’s quizzes are the usual hot ticket. But also: I won’t be there. The Doc is elsewhere tonight so THE PROF is on the mic.

Watch out for the Prof!

Anyway, here’s the music round cheat for tonight’s quiz at the Percy: – it’s a bit of a one-hit wonder from the mid eighties and it’s about John Wayne apparently having a large penis.

Speckled hen just stop your squawking, big bad rooster’s doing the talking.

That’s one of the lyrics. It’s great.

I’ll be back on the quiz mic tomorrow night.

Yeah.

Sunday Night Pub Quiz Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Nick Drake (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Reese Witherspoon (pic round)

Come on now and get out of your lazy fat sunday sofa. Shake a leg. Break a sweat. Move a muscle. GET TO THE QUIZ.

You will be rewarded with intellectual stimulation, a drink and a chance to achieve legend status.

Here’s the music round cheat which pertains to the Percy tonight. It’s Nick Drake:

Nice stuff. Quality hippy folk sound. Drake never made the 27 Club-  he died when he was just 26 years old.

Drake’s death was an overdose and was officially ruled as suicide, although the singer left no note.

Don’t worry though, don’t be spooked. I’ve listened to this song for many years and although it’s performed in a minor key, it hasn’t made me kill myself. I haven’t caught suicide by listening to it.

Which means the quiz will go ahead as usual tonight!

Take note – £120 at the Tolbooth tonight. Yeah.

Yo!

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Sofia Loren (pic round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £90. Cheat: Tricky Disco (music round)

There haven’t been a lot of Sunday rollovers recently but both venues have a rollover this week. Good.

Here’s the cheat info for the music round at tonight’s Tolbooth quiz. It’s an instrumental rave=chart crossover from before you were born (1990).

Great stuff. The Good Old Days. G.O.D,

One day, in the future, today will be the good old days. Make sure you remember it was the time you won the quiz. Hot.

Anyway – See you at the quiz tonight!

Yo!

Sunday Night Pleasure? See Quiz.

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Air Supply (music round)

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Man Ray (pic round)

Sunday is often a challenge for humans. Especially if there’s work the next day.

Scientists have been working on the problem and their findings are clear: IF YOU WANT PLEASURE ON A SUNDAY YOU MUST ATTEND A PUB QUIZ.

This is science. Best believe it.

Meanwhile here’s the wee cheaty bonus for reading my bullshit: an answer for tonight’s music round at the Percy:

Whoa. Sixty eight million views. Hardcore.

I have never had any interest in Air Supply beyond their occasional appearance as an answer on Popmaster. I’ve just looked them up on Wikipedia and I’m not really any more inspired. They’re mainly Australian. I didn’t know that.

Anyway – See you at the quiz tonight!

Yo!

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!
