Re: Friday, October 11, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Got the FJ because I had a weird flashback to the Mad magazine parody of the movie, and realized the play would seem controversial in that era. Now, of course, nobody would bat an eye. Larry Siegel, the writer of the parody, wanted to call it "Who in Hell Is Virginia Woolfe," but he wasn't allowed ...

Terrazzo hit me as a NHOI though I'd wager I have. "Uptown you cater to a million whores/You disinfect terrazzo on their bathroom floors/Your morning's tribulation, afternoon's a curse/And five o'clock is even worse" -- "Skid Row (Downtown)" from "Little Shop of Horrors" (Also, the old part of my h...

I just read Robert Hilburn's recent biography of Paul Simon, so this FJ was right at the front of my brain.

Re: Monday, October 7, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I thought Schoolhouse Rock was a Jack Black movie from 2004 or something. I think you've made a lot of people on this board feel very old. For those, like you, who are unaware of the existence of these 1970s educational shorts (which ran, off and on, on the ABC network on Saturday mornings into the...

The only one that made me seriously laugh out loud was GOING TO DIE/CHOLERA (for "Your ______ of _______"). Yes, despite the spelling error that results.

Re: Tuesday, September 10, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

A Sunday early in the year made me think of the Super Bowl first, so possibly taking that out would have made me get it quicker...(And yes, I now know it wasn't called the Super Bowl until the year of that Fugitive finale...) For the record, the Super Bowl, i.e., the NFL-AFL championship game, didn...

Re: Football pre-emptions

Looks like ABC (LA)'s Thursday show will be at 1:07A Friday instead ...and apparently that's not football related, that's the debate... Correct, the only football preemptions on KABC should be Monday, November 18 (Chargers on "Monday Night Football") and Monday, November 25 (Rams on "Monday Night F...

Re: 2019 Current Events Study Guide

I'd always wanted to visit there, but when I read up on it, the consensus seemed to be that it is underwhelming, ticky-tacky, and there are basically two groups fighting over it. So I haven't bothered trying to get there. I wouldn't take a special trip all the way to Iowa for it, but if you're in t...

My money is on Brad Rutter somehow winning even though he's technically not competing.
A couple weeks ago, a friend of mine beat Brad Rutter at pub trivia without knowing who he was. (Not at O'Briens, at a different location.) So he's vulnerable, as long as people aren't intimidated!
