Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £120. Cheat: Walrus (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!

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!

Wednesday Pub Quizzes In Edinburgh

Quizzes tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £30. Cheat: Scatman John (music round – see vid below)

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

Wednesday is your proper day for going out. All your friends like you.

If the week was a fruit salad, Wednesday would be a gob full of banana and grapes. Live life the way it was intended by the creator, Muhammed Ali.

The music round cheat answer for the Joker tonight is Scatman John. This guy had a heavy stutter but it didn’t let it stop him become a POP STAR. He was from LA but he made it in Berlin. He was probably EXACTLY the sort of guy who like to go out on Wednesdays. He probably had no choice, he was probably booked somewhere.

He was a jazz piano player at first and then a rapper. He died at the age of 57 year old. It aint that much. All hail the Scatman.

The way he says “Scatland” is exactly the same as if he was saying “Scotland”. It’s another potential post-indy national anthem for the list.

Man Ray? He was a cool photographer

It’s the first Wednesday quiz of the year. We have no idea if the pub will still have a few festive bellends hanging about or whether that’s all cleansed now. Come and find out.

Either way it’s quiz time twenty eighteen style. NOW IS YOUR TIME.

Be a lion, not an elf.

Wednesday Gives You THREE Quiz Choices

Two quizzes from me and one from Gordon down at Harmonium – the vegan pub in Leith.

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot £150. Cheat answer – Denmark is one of the picture round answers.

8pm – Harmonium. Jackpot £30. Cheat answer – One of the music round answers is Inner Circle, see vid below to hear the song

9pm – Brass Monkey, Drummond Street. Jackpot £30 Cheat answer – the music round contains an old rave-pop banger by Felix, see vid below

The Inner Circle song is a special kind of awful. It’s a song that doesn’t like it’s about anal sex but probably actually is.

The Felix song is a perfect example of the rave-pop which ruled the charts in 1992. Totally cool.

Whichever quiz you choose tonight: be nice to each other when you get there. It was world kindness day this week, apparently.

I don’t go for that yoghurt-eating, yoga-crunching, hipster bullshit but if you are trying to be kind to each other and you actually need a special day to be able to pull this off…. then good luck!

Come Out To The Quiz And Feel What It Feels Like To Be A Winner

The great thing about winning the quiz is that, thanks to digital technology, the moment will visually live for ever, even if the feeling itself wears off after a week.

Most winners do get a week out of it though, so even that’s cool. Here are your opportunities for tonight:

7pm – The Joker & The Thief. Jackpot: £30, Cheat: One of the music round bits is by Chase & Status. See the video below to hear the tune.

9pm – The Brass Monkey (Drummond Street). Jackpot: £60, Cheat: One of the answers in the picture round is “Beech“. Aye, as in the tree.

By the way – a jackpot of £30 at the Joker sounds a bit shite, but believe me, it’s a price that can still make people happy:

Happy as anything
Happy as anything
