Re: TD 394 - MINI-TD #2 - Q3 RESULTS

I'm relieved that I didn't give the worst wrong answer for that question.

Re: Tuesday, September 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

This is the first time (according to the Archive) that they have asked for "Vanuatu" on the show. I guess I shouldn't have been so confident in my pre-call. I blame Pointless . And yes, I got it. The character Flaca mentioned the band Bauhaus on the episode of Oranges: The New Black I watched last ...

Andrew Jackson Jihad (AJJ) — Singleton! 9021amyers I didn't think of a huge list for this question -- I just figured it was unlikely anyone else would say Yeah Yeah Yeahs, so I went with it -- but this response reminded me of one of my favorite three-word band names: (The) Samuel Jackson Five.

If that's the clip I'm thinking of, he's not wrong.

Missed Managua because I didn't RTFQ (RTFC?). I thought it said South American and went through all of the capitals without finding it.
I thought it said Central African. I'd have missed it anyway, but still... :oops:

Re: Thursday, July 26, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I missed "Song of Roland" with "Marseillaise." I have Roland very strongly associated with Stephen King and I'm going to struggle to get "Song of Roland" clues. Browning clues about Roland aren't as bad. I mentioned in last Friday's thread that the book that FJ was about was one of four I've read m...

It's so hard to believe that the music that came up in that category is already 20 years old! Just last night, I was thinking about how the albums I listened to a lot in high school (a little older than the ones in that category) are now older than the Beatles albums I listened to as a kid were at ...

Is it a 50/50/100 choice when I'm sure it's one of two things, pick one almost at random, then find out they were both wrong anyway? A soon as I saw the orangutan, I thought, "I hope this clue is about Sumatra." LT: police, Nathan Hale, reckoned (a) second, diving, and I thought of emollient but cla...

I ended up not entering because of the ridiculous number of answers I saw by happenstance in various outside sources, but I was considering Walking the Dinosaur and the Ed Grimley dance for Q1, though I don't know if anyone other than me did those with any regularity.

I really appreciated Ray's Sean Connery cosplay. It's too bad there wasn't an "S" WORDS or AN ALBUM COVER category. I was just completely on the wrong track for this FJ. For some reason I was only thinking of those who left office and tried to think of the latest one, and I didn't even think of VPs ...

Not sure if I'd heard of Westerbork. I haven't read or seen The Joy Luck Club, but I used to do a lot of crossword puzzles.

When have they accepted "Who is Caesar?" I agree that shouldn't happen. HISTORIC TRIOS $200 MURDERED TO DEATH $200 QUOTATIONS $1200 PARDON ME $400 And so on in that fashion. They've used just "Caesar" to refer to Julius in clues a lot, so it's kind of consistent, but they also acknowledge there wer...
