The Weekend Has Opened Its Landing Gear…

Quizzes Tonight:

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat answer: Rudyard Kipling (pic round)

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

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

Thursday Barely Matters. It’s YOU Who Counts

Quizzes Tonight:

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

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £150. Cheat answer: A French Philosopher (pic round)

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.

Thursday Night Out In Edinburgh

Can you believe this? Last day of November. After this it’s just dark and cold and Christmas. After that, January blues. After that, February. No one likes February.

The only solution: PUB QUIZ

Jesus likes pub quizzes
Trust the Lord

Thursday Can Be A Total Snake In The Grass

Just when you weren’t expecting it: QUIZ TIME

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:

Or worse…

Thursday Yeah Yeah Edinburgh Pub Quiz Action

Yeah baby. YEAH.

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £90. Cheat: One of the music round hits is by Timmy Trumpet & Savage. See vid below to hear the song.

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £100. Cheat answer: One of the picture round answers is ‘Chinstrap (Penguin)’

Everyone in this pop song looks like they’re having a really great time.

The rapper sounds a bit like Fatman Scoop. Remember him? His gimmick was being overweight.The crowd and the dancing girls seem happy enough.

One of the least convincing characters in the video is Timmy Trumpet himself.

Wikipedia says mister Trumpet (real name Smith) “became popular in Ibiza; playing live trumpet solos over electronic dance music tracks during DJs shows.”

To be honest, he looks a bit pained. I wonder if he would rather be in a nice Tijuana band or possibly the James Last orchestra.

It looks maybe like dance music became a way to make money…

And you know how that pans out for years and years of making the bills.

SADNESS AND DEATH.

Am I being too dismal? Cheer up – it’s only the second of the month.
