Sunday: Persevere and Tolbooth Tavern

Tonight’s quizzes :

6pm – The Persevere. Jackpot: £60. Cheat: Sistine Chapel (pic round)

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

I was at the museum last week doing the Rip It Up quiz with Phill Jupitus. Good gig but I love my regulars so I’ve sent the Prof back to Australia and I am back on questions and answers tonight.

Here’s the music round cheat for tonight which pertains to the Tolbooth:

Well, a “stripped down version” in any case which means it doesn’t sound much like the actual recorded version of the song. Consider it an extra challenge to match the video with what you’ll hear in the music round tonight.

Anyway – remember to bring your mum tonight! It’s nowhere near mother’s day or anything like that – you should just take her to the quiz. She probably deserves it.

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 Quiz Action In Edinburgh

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

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

Is there supposed to be a named storm today? Maybe aye, maybe no but there will be a whirlwind of questions and a tornado of answers plus a monsoon of prizes. At the quiz. Ooh yeah.

Here’s the music round cheat which pertains to the Persevere tonight. It’s INXS who were Australians who did not own crocodiles:

You’re probably too young to remember, but INXS were a big deal back in late 80s / early 90s. They stopped having hits when everyone realised the songs were all the same but for a while they tranced the public and all the girls fancied the singer.

But the singer ended up killing himself in 1997. It was only a couple of months after Lady Princess Diana The Queen of Hearts got smashed up in Paris, so the British public, steeled against tragedy, dealt with the story easily, with a shrug.

That’s the thing about celebrity deaths: you either care or you don’t and there’s loads of them these days so its even harder to care.

However the news that Chas out of Chas and Dave died yesterday is a bigger one than most, in my book.

Chas and Dave were funny but they weren’t comedians. Chas was a musical genius and they rocked hard. The maestro is dead. Luckily, however, the recordings and the youtube remain so you can keep Chazzing and Daveing forever:

 

 

Yeah.

Yo!

The Best Sunday Night Entertainment Is A Pub Quiz

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Steps (music round)

Here are the things you COULD do in Edinburgh on a Sunday night:

  1. Go to the Tattoo. This is a bad idea. The festival is over and the temporary stadium has been dismantled. It is over.
  2. Go to the cinema. This is an awful idea. The plots are all the same and Tom Cruise just gets richer and richer for hacking out the same pish, repeatedly.
  3. Eat out in a restaurant. Nah. Paid dining has been revealed by scientists to be the single most disappointing way that modern humans waste their wages money. I can’t argue with scientists.
  4. Get tae the Pub Quiz. Yasssss. Thumbs all the way UP. Come on. Sexy time.

To be fair, you could also go for a game of darts and there’s not much negative I could say about that. Darts is barry, but I’d personally prefer it if you came to the quiz.

Here’s the music round cheat which pertains to the Tolbooth tonight. It’s Steps:

The video is when they used this power pop to ROCK Hyde Park:

And you can say what you like. Steps were great.

By the way, after a string of midweek jackpot wins, tonight is as big as the pots get for the week, particularly the £150 at the Tolbooth.

Roll it up and smoke it.

Yo!

Sunday Edinburgh Pub Quizzes

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Ashford & Simpson (music round)

Here is the music round cheat for the Tolbooth. I used to like this song when I was a kid:

The guy’s got loads of soul glow and swaggering soul-knits. And leather trousers. He looks a bit like Barry White but less fat.

I don’t know whatever happened to Ashford and Simpson. But They look like emotional people. I bet they were as deeply affected by the death of Harambe as any of us.

I think my voice is nearly back to normal. Wednesday and Thursday were horrible. Sorry if you chose to sit through that.

Thanks for the various wishes of recovery, but If you really are worried about my health, the quickest way to get me back to fitness is to buy a deck of Cunto cards.

Thanks for that!

Sunday Night, So Bright, Don’t Fight. Quiz Glory Awaits.

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £120. Cheat: Westlife (music round)

Hey. It’s Sunday and, as I type, the weather is good. Take advantage, go outside for a while.

Then when you realise how tedious outside can be (nowhere to buy beer, nowhere to politely piss) then come back inside to the pub where everyone is your friend and you can get food and booze and win the quiz.

Here is a clip from the music round at the Tolbooth tonight:

Just like the Wizard of Oz, the video begins in black and white and then dramatically leaps into colour just as it gets to the good bit.

The good bit in the Wizard of Oz is where Dorothy travels to Oz and kills the witch and meets the Munchkins and literally everything goes completely bananas.

In the Westlife video, the “good bit” is just the chorus. 1939 > 2001

I mean, it’s a decent enough song. It’s the sort of thing that would have easily won Eurovision in 1995.

I’ve started properly listening to Eurovision songs for next month. The criticism of this year’s Iceland entry is that it sounds like a winner from the 1990s. It is predicted to fail to qualify from the semis.

My favourite so far is Greece or France or Cyprus or Moldova. Not sure yet – will need a few more listens. I’ll keep you updated because I know you care, deeply.

Epic hit. So powerful and so obviously written by the Bee Gees, perhaps the universe’s most potent songwriting team of all time.

Remember your quiz inspiration. Remember what Mahatma Gandhi always said: “CHEATING IS BAD”.

Wise words, Mahatma.

The cheat-music clip from the Tolbooth music round tonightis disco legends Chic. Check out the groove:

Chic are always so well turned-out. More seventies smooth than you can wave a disco-stick at. Delicious.

Sunday Night Pub Quiz Action In The Burger

Tonight’s quizzes :

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

8pm – Tolbooth Tavern. Jackpot: £30. Cheat: Snow Patrol (music round)

Here’s a cheat-preview of one of the songs in the Tolbooth Music Round tonight:

 

In truth, this is the kind of music that makes me want to physically attack people, such is the misery, the beige and the lack of anything. Don’t listen to the tune. Don’t click the video unless you really really need to hear the tune to secure those two points in tonight’s quiz. It’s terrible.

It’s like the worst parts of Radiohead, Coldplay and Elbow all squeezed into a single three-minute poo.

Are there people cluttering up your front room who you hate? Play them some Snow Patrol. Although maybe not. Because if they’re cunts anyway then they might stay if you play Snow Patrol because they’re a cunt’s band. And also, if you did play Snow Patrol just to get the cunts to leave your front room, then you’d have to listen to Snow Patrol too.

Easier just to ask them to leave.
