Wednesday Pub Quiz Action (Edinburgh)

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Ronald Reagan (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £120 Cheat: Macklemore (music round)

Here’s the music round cheat for the Joker:

The song is pish, the video is worse.

It looks like it was made by the same people that make those beer adverts where a perfectly constructed cross-section of races all go to a festival and everyone has a great (and yet meaningful) time.

The racial cross-section is always perfectly constructed in this scenario. But the rule is no oldies and no uggos. Everyone comes from a catalogue. With the possible exception of one fat person who is a lot of “fun”.

At the same time as diversity is rigidly ticked-off, stereotypes abound. A proper load of shite.

Anyway, as luck would have it the music round includes neither the turd of a video nor any clip longer than twenty seconds, “so we’re good” as the people in the shit video would undoubtedly say.

By the way: A HUNDRED AND TWENTY QUID AT THE MONKEY TONIGHT. That’s pretty good. I imagine all the stars will be turning up for that: Emma Watson, Tom Hanks, etc.

Tom Hanks and Emma Watson at Dr Paul quiz
Every single time

Incidentally Cunto Cards are back in stock and I will have a few decks with me tonight if you’re looking for a pack.

Yo!

Wednesday Was Built For You

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Rod Stewart (music round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat: Wellington (music round)

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey:

 

It’s the greatest song ever written and the greatest video ever made. It’s the moment when Rod Stewart single-handedly broke the seventies into small pieces and created what we still call “the eighties.”

The youtube comments on the video seem to be an awful lot to do with Grand Theft Auto San Andreas.

One bloke says

"GTA on PS2... best time of my life"

– that’s the entire comment and it has 1400 likes.

Is it me or is that hugely sad? All these people? And playing a computer game was the BEST time of their LIFE?

It’s a cliche, but they NEED TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE.

You can get out the house tonight. At the q uiz. And maybe even out of your mind. If you do, that’s fine. I’m not your dad although, increasingly, I’m old enough to be so.

By the way, I had a bit of downtime but Cunto cards are back in stock and I will have a few decks with me tonight if you’re looking for a pack.

Wednesday Pub Quiz Scene In Funky Bonnie Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: David Zowie (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £120 Cheat: George Michael (pic round)

It’s Eurovision week, so I can hardly think about the quizzes properly due to the proper Eurovision excitement.

Did you see the first semi-final last night? Fucking magic.

Anyway, Here’s the music round cheat info for the quiz at the Joker tonight: it’s a dance music song with a fairly standard dance music video. But the video DOES include a lauderette so ye cannae beat that.

I wonder if there’s a playlist anywhere on youtube that just has pop music videos which include a lauderette as a location?

Maybe.

It’s 2018 and things are reaching that point where if you can think of it then it already exists, thanks to old father internet.

 

When was the last time you disco danced in a launderette? For me, the answer would be “the early 90s”.

Hope to see you at the quiz tonight

Wednesday Pub Quiz Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Open Water (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: Architects (music round)

Big jackpot got won last week at the Joker by the SPECKIES, so well done to them and it means that our biggest jackpot tonight is at the Monkey. Ninety pounds on offer.

Here’s the cheat tip for the Monkey, it’s some rotten old pop garage thing from 2000. You don’t hear stuff like this very much these days except in Dr Paul Quiz music rounds

Meanwhile, I listed the May dead pool entries this morning. Have a look at the post for more detail, but basically all the smart money has moved onto George Bush Sr. (the older, less dippit of the Bush prez duo)

Hope to see you at the quiz tonight

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £120. Cheat: Walrus (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: Jethro Tull (pic round)

Another two rollovers last Wednesday so tonight’s pots are over a hundred quid each and getting bulbuous and exciting like something organic and bursty.

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey quiz. It’s Jethro Tull, the band that named themselves after the man who invented the seed drill.

The video’s a bit ropey, but.

Meanwhile, here’s what people look like when they win the quiz. Clock the satisfaction:

Yo!

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: Robert Palmer (pic round)

Two rollovers last Wednesday so tonight’s pots are respectable and delectable like a Tiger if not particularly enormous and thunderous like an Elephant.

The Joker is  a smooth silk hanky. The Monkey is a ruddy velvet curtain. Make your choice

Here’s the music round cheat for the Monkey quiz. It’s Robert Palmer (NOW DEAD) being all rock star…

Meanwhile, here’s me in a white jacket, promoting the idea of booze:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Michaelangelo (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £180 Cheat: Maria McKee (music round)

Amazing jackpot up at the monkey tonight. Proper Bullseye money.

How about that music round cheat? Here it is:

Serious schmaltz, 80s style.

And that’s just a wee reminder of the cash your freaked-out face could be munching on round about half past ten tonight at the Monkey (Quiz starts at 9)

We Love Wednesday It’s So Great

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Renault Clio (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £150 Cheat: Martin Solveig (music round)

 

Two rollovers last midweek sets up a cheeky Wednesday for your pocket. One-fifty at the Monkey. That’s like.. great.

How about the music round cheat? Here it is:

 

This is a modern song but I like it. I thought it was much more produced, but it’s pretty bare. The video is good as well. Nothing really happens except a lift gets faster and people become more extreme versions of themselves as the lift speeds up.

You still here? Check ma twitter.

Wednesday Pub Quiz Events Edinburgh [Tonight] And A Small Rant About People Who Can’t Be Bothered To Write Answers In Full

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £60. Cheat: Tasmanian Devil (pic round)

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £90 Cheat: Dexy’s Midnight Runners (music round)

Wednesday is the classical peak of civiilization. Come out and talk poetr and orchestral music with the intelligentsia tonight.

Patrons are advised that the intelligentsia may be turned off at any point. In fact, usually around 10pm.

How about the music round cheat? Here it is:

I don’t know if you do bother listening to the track or not. If you do, be careful with this one: the start of the track is nothing like the second half, which is where I took the clip from. It changes at 1’39”

Meanwhile and by the way, if you cannae be fucked writing out the entire 4-12 characters that covers most of the answers in the jackpot round, then fine: be like that.

don’t do that a-b-c thing. Does my nut in.

Be that person, that lazy mistake of a human who uses ABC answer-style. Be like that. That’s fine by me.

Just don’t expect me to refrain from kicking you in the scrote when I finally find out who the hell you are.

Scum!
