Thu 13th Dec, Pub Quiz Action in Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Gone With The Wind  (pic round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Major Lazer (music round).

The free answer for the music round at the Newsy tonight is Major Lazer I had to look them up but apparently they are a dance music trio from the USA. Fine. The song “features” Justin Bieber, so presumably that’s him doing the singing?

They sound like this:

Well, I just skipped through that and it is possibly one of the most meaningless videos I’ve ever viewed. But it includes Greek Islands, so it’s all right by me.

POLITICS THURSDAY

By the way- Thursday is now the day when I express my opinion on the crazy world of politics

This week’s point: FEMALE LEADERS ARE A GOOD THING.

All politics is a lie, but at least when the leader is female, my daughter (who is nearly 9 years old) can see that women can be at the top.

So, actual politics aside, I’d rather have a female country-boss and I wasn’t too dismayed to see Theresa May survive yesterday.

Even if she is a sneaky scrote and a savage Tory bastard of the first rank.

Disagree? Come and argue with me at the quiz.

See you tonight

Thursday 25th October 2018 – Quizzes Tonight

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: The Stranglers (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: Carry On Up The Khyber (music round)

Here are tonight’s quizzes. They is great.

The Argyle – So nice.

Newsroom – So glamour.

The cheat music for tonight is for the Argyle. This is early 80s Stranglers – a a spooky number from the start of their ‘Men In Black’ concept album which is about space travellers, many years before Will Smith was even cool.

The video is a fan-made interpretation. Kinda Halloweeny.

One of the reasons you may recognise the song (if you’re a bit older) is that it was used for many years as the introduction music to Keith Floyd’s cookery shows. He was the one who liked to get pissed on wine while he was cooking. A hero to millions.

Anyway – I’ll see you at the quiz. I’ll be the one with the great hair.

POLITICS THURSDAY

Incidentally – Thursday is now the day when I express my political opinion on this blog.

This week’s point: Never trust any politician who spreads his hands forwards and to the sides when s/he is talking, like a clumsy Jesus. That shit is all training and it kicks in when they’re not being 100% truthful.

Love,

Dr Paul

Thursday Night Pub Quiz Action In The Great City of Edinburgh

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat answer: Stevie Wonder (music round)

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: The Netherlands (pic round)

Thursday offers you the chance for Marchmont middle-class niceness and manners or dirty city-centre cocktail mayhem.

Both involve a bloody good quiz at the heart of it. That’s the engine of this night out, the driver.

If you’re coming to the quiz tonight, be aware of the cheats mentioned in the details above. It’s like a free answer. Here is the cheat clip for tonight’s’ Argyle music round. It’s your old pal Stevie Wonder who was the Stephen Hawking of his day but with more groove and less interstellar physics.

That’s eighties Stevie Wonder. Good song. Solid pop. But not as cool as seventies Stevie, especially when he was on Sesame Street:

He didn’t just fanny about with Grover either, he also laid down Superstition with full funk force. On the street, for the kids. Intense:

MAke all your Stevie Wonder jokes if you like but let’s see Stephen Hawking doing something like this. ANYTHING as good as this. No. Didn’t think so.

Cool.

You know what? The mood is too high. Here’s a picture of the sefront at Prestonpans just to mute things a bit:
