...now why can't they do that with pointless
I tried out for a U.S. version of "Pointless" about a year and a half ago, supposedly being produced for Game Show Network. I don't know what happened to it.

Technically, this stamp wasn't issued by the USPS -- the Post Office didn't become the USPS until 1971.

For the fun of it I looked to see if I could find the page in Fred Worth's Super Trivia regarding Howdy Doody's freckles the article talks about.[/img]
Fred Worth may have been correct with the 48, but the show's title was just "Howdy Doody," not "Howdy Doody Time."

Took it for real, got 40.

Now to wait for the audition invitation that may never happen (haven't gotten one since 2010).

I said Black Francis instead of Frank Black. Judges?
That was his stage name and how he was credited on all their albums. I can't see how it could be negged.
Frank Black is also a stage name (used for his non-Pixies work). But, yes, I agree that either name would be acceptable.

What is "the" Chinese Theater? The famous one with the messed up sidewalk?
Just for the record, the signatures/footprints/etc. are technically a courtyard, not a sidewalk. (I just saw "Shazam!" at that theater on Friday.)

Don't know about the Count, though. Might you be confusing him with Count Basie?
Surely you're familiar with Count Dracula's legendary guest vocals on "Monster Mash."

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

I just barely avoided relegation (pretty much needed to win on MD25, and did). I was a bit surprised to see that I only missed my personal TCA record by 1 -- but what I did set a personal record in is Correct Answers Allowed.

Article about the 1984 J! tryout process, which apparently ran only in the long-gone San Diego County edition of the L.A. Times. (Open the first image in a new tab/window to enlarge.)

I got "Guinness on tap," but that phrase seems much, much less common than "Guinness on draught."

Re: Tuesday, March 12, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

For whatever reason, baseball stories used to refer to Dodger Stadium or the home of the Dodgers as "Chavez Ravine". When the Angels played there from 1962 to 1965 (before Anaheim Stadium/Angel Stadium opened in 1966), they specifically referred to it as "Chavez Ravine." If you don't know the full ...

I looked at the BNSF question 4 times to make sure he really only wanted one of the letters. I was prepared with the full name.
I was prepared with the names of the railroads that merged into Burlington Northern in the late 1960s.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

That only mentions the spoon in the Owl and the Pussycat. It doesn't mention the kind of spoon the clue was talking about. And an image search only gives me, of all things, a smartwatch. Because you're searching for "runcible" rather than "runcible spoon." It's never called just a runcible. Do an i...

Is there any way to check and confirm that we get ABC rather than Little Brownie out here?
The L.A. Times produced this map in 2015, updated in 2017, but I know it's not fully up-to-date (I've seen on Facebook that the southern half of Nevada is now Little Brownie territory).

Pretty sure that stock photo of Thin Mints was the ABC Bakers version. Girl Scouts near the J! studio would be selling the Little Brownie Bakers lineup, though.

As I was walking out of my office, I realized that this is what the coffee table in our reception area looks like: Some of my friends got cars, but I got a subscription to what was then Broadcasting as a high school graduation present. I think they added the & Cable during the initial term of that ...
