Thursday is a great day to come to the quiz. Take it from me. I do all the nights and I know that people on Thursdays are among the most sane. Maybe its just the bars I do on Thursdays.
The Argyle has sane young students with bright futures. The Newsroom has sane office people, holding lives together including full-on adult shit like jobs and relationships and parenting and making enough cash to afford cocktails and wine.
Meanwhile, here’s Die Antwoord who pretty much make the best pop videos. This one is in the music round at the Newsroom tonight:
Cannae beat Die Antwoord. Best band since Tatu and/or S club 7
Roles reversed from last week. Big jackpot at the Newsroom now. LARGE.
Meanwhile, here’s the Orange Juice tune from tonight’s music round at the Argyle:
Orange Juice. Wow. Remember them? Almost all of you WON’T, as you’re under 40. They, along with Altered Images and maybe Aztec Camera were branded ‘The sound of Young Scotland’.
This was the early 80s, a wee Scottish paradise time when there were still jobs in big places that made things and everyone lived like the people in ‘Gregory’s Girl’. It was usually summer and even in Scotland there were warm nights.
At the time, all the middle class boys who were SLIGHTLY older than based their look on Edwyn Collins, singer of the Orange Juice. They continued to base their look on Collins then, and forever since.
These men are now about 50 years old. Some of them might be at the quiz tonight.
7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £60. Cheat: One of the answers in the music round is The B-52s. See vid below to hear the song.
9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £50. Cheat answer: One of the picture round hits is Esperanto.
So many great versions of the B-52s song. This is one of my favourites. Also If you have half an hour, you can watch the whole gig
Last week’s Thursday post had a nice picture of a seal. My daughter loves seals and we look at seals a lot. We look at Google images. She’s only seven so I have my hand on the mouse to make quick clicks to avoid her seeing ones like this:
