Re: Thursday, November 19, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Sorry Matt. What an awful way to go. Boy, one lucky guess on judy bloom and he goes from being out of the game to guaranteed winner. Stupid neg baity uninteresting fj. Terrible clippers game as well. Did you see them blow a 41-point first quarter? Whats up with that new logo too? I also was not fond...

You think Kevin is making a political stance? He recognizes Tibet as a country. Just like I decided always to refer to Myanmar as Burma, lol.

Re: Monday, November 2, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Did you guys get Avenida Presidente Masaryk? What an interesting gloss over of history. Do you know who Masaryk is? Not a Mexican President, but the First Czech President. Somehow, the street became named for a statue given to Mexico of the first Czech president. Now, of course, the street is just k...

Interesting that everyone now has heard of Carnegie-Mellon. When someone first told me about Carnegie-Mellon, just a few years ago, I said, you've got to be kidding me, there's no school called Carnegie-Mellon.

Re: Wednesday, October 28, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Wasn't it Freud who also came up with terms like repression, projection? I thought projection, and then said repression. Rediculous FJ. I wonder if psychologists can even settle on an unambigious answer for that. Most any defense mechanism seems to fit, right? Thanks, nlw, I'm just repeating your po...

Re: Monday, October 26, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I wasn't sure what gave away the FJ tonight. I guessed We Are the World, seems appropriate for a mass produced title. Though, I suppose it came out in 1985. So, nice job Mr. Anderson. Hey, Anderson was also my favorite character on the Paper Chase TV show. Robert Ginty is neat, how come we didn't ge...

Interesting fj huh? Was there really a person who thought, you know I dont know the first two spanish actors to win acting oscars, but by telling me they got married soon after winning . . . ? Now its just obvious. Why didnt you just say they got married after winning the oscar? You tried to trip me...

Re: Monday, October 12, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

You think the truth about GOT is that its so boring it needs ocassional sex scenes to attract viewers? I suppose its the reason ppl are going to croatia today, to see Dubrovnik or something? Here we have the real reason not to ask about it. Or I just dont like that show. Why does HBO get away with o...

Re: Monday, October 12, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Speaking of Charlie Theron, has anyone seen the movie, Trial and Error (1997)? Comic genius! It was directed by the same guy who directed My Cousin Vinny. I read Trial and Error was meant to be some kind of thematic sequel. Maybe that's just nonsense. Another example of a discontented lawyer, huh?

Re: Monday, October 12, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Of course, the other reason not to ask about GOT is because its a premium cable show. Not everyone has access to it. I guess its just me railing against the smut on tv. Its just a matter of degree and GOT kind of pushes the envelope. All tv shows are guilty pleasures anyway. One can speculate about ...

Re: Monday, October 12, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I guess the actress argument is a hard one to make. I still think Game of Thrones is porn that gets away with portraying itself as a major part of the cultural canon anyway. I think Jeopardy helped solidify that image. Do you suppose Jeopardy gets paid to mention GOT? On the other hand, maybe it's n...

Heo

It's almost comical that it's my tertiary and quaternary arguments that are the first on the chopping block. He lost his little bottle of oil, indeed. I think that Game of Thrones, in particular, is smut designed to appeal to the prurient interest. I'm not a big fan of fake histories in general. Tha...

Mythology would be such a great subject for movies and TV. Are there any decent treatments of the subject though?

Re: Monday, October 12, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Is Game of Thrones a disturbing category though? Where does a show cross the line between legitimate show and porn? I think Game of Thrones crossed the line. Of course it's popular, it has gratuitous sex and violence, which is sexually gratifying too. Why does it get a place on the pedestal of civil...

An interesting example of the winner's curse, huh?

At least Matt Jackson and I made the same guess for FJ, lol. Maybe someone who watches Frasier as much as I do can get that clue, lol.

So what do you say Matt, do you still have enough money to get out of law? Good luck friendo!

That Zapata clue reminded me of a movie. Do you remember a movie in which this guy was asked his name, and he responds, Emiliano Zapata emphasizing each syllable? Obviously lying.

Three disappointing TS in a row in New England. Mystic, CT is a neat place.

You think the power of suggestion is getting to these players, when Alex tells them they will need luck to beat Matt, it gets to their heads?

Whizzer White is an interesting clue. Do you know what White was famous for, as a jurist? He was one of the only justices to write in dissent on the Clinton, and Chadha cases. He wanted to uphold the line-item veto, and the legislative veto. I think those are two devices that would have greatly impr...

Say, you notice that Matt's total ends in 411? I also have a number that ends in 411, haha. Which number is it? How long do you suppose it will stay that way? Good luck, Matt. Hey, numerology makes about as much sense as astrology or anything else, right? How did Matt, and the whole world, for that ...
