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.
