I know who Banksy is though.
As in "I have heard of the artist known as Banksy" or "I know the legal identity of the artist known popularly as Banksy"?

I really need to sort out Manuel Noriega and Daniel Ortega. Unfortunately, Ortega was a nu-crossword/Games Magazine fave back in the day, so his name always comes to mind first.
I was this close to saying Anastasio Somoza before I paid more attention to the date.

Re: Thursday, January 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Did anyone else get "Toledo" as "Glass City" right away because of the (now-defunct) Glassmen Drum & Bugle Corps? Ugh, I came to "compound" immediately but got stuck looking for something else because I didn't make the connection with a building compound, even though it's not like I had never heard ...

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

Willy Brandt is German. Pick Germany, East Germany or West Germany. He's a famous leader and J! players will/should have some familiarity. Ostpolitik gives you Ost=East for the extra hint. That's great and exactly what I did. Problem is the correct response was WEST Germany. East Germany wouldn't h...

We've seen the last of good King Richard, ring out the past, his name lives on, and on. Roll out the bones and raise up your pitchers, raise up your glass for good King John! No "Harry Reasoner" clue? "We know what that means"--I'm waiting for someone to not. I remember watching an episode of Pawn S...

I answered the first Classic Albums clue at home as... "What is ... ... ... (dejectedly) nevermind."
In retrospect, I wish I had done it in an Emily Litella voice.

Is "Connectiquette" the longest single word to ever appear in a category title? YOU, WHAT, DO YOU OWN THE WORLD? HOW DO YOU OWN DISORDER, DISORDER? Svalbard has long been at the top of my list for "exotic places I'd like to work in sometime." Really wish Alex had responded to "What is her horse?" wi...

Why would you expect one?
Because he spent some time in jail awaiting trial after accidentally killing his wife.
Not entirely sure how you'd shoehorn a Burroughs clue into a Classical Music category...
"Writers Who Went To Jail" was a category, too...

"B" composer and "Hungarian Dances" led me to Brahms. If I see that same clue in a year I'll probably miss it again.
The clue was "This Hungarian's 1923 'Dance Suite,'" not "This composer's 'Hungarian Dances.'"

Mail via cruise missile seems dangerous. My brain initially read the image for the Corsica $1000 clue as a mushroom cloud and I was really confused. Dave finally realized he doesn't have to end every response with "Alex." Disappointed we didn't get a clue about calques. I know the Arthurian connecti...

Re: Wednesday, January 9, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

All this composer talk reminds me of a M*A*S*H episode where Radar is taught to pronounce Bach as "Baaah". As edgy as it was, that is one sitcom that didn't age well. Sort of a period piece inside a period piece. And crossdressing schtick hasn't been funny since evah! Mmm, Bach... That's highly sig...

Thanks. I figured it was something like that based on your sentence. (I'd have gotten it without the extra clue #hb) No one blessed you with this at Christmas, huh?

Please let "Voyage of a Beagle" be about Snoopy. Pretty please? That was impressive. YES IT IS I AM SO HAPPY! The Christmas version of "Snoopy vs. the Red Baron" is definitely my favorite of all non-traditional Christmas songs. The leading "On" isn't an article, so I don't think they should accept i...

Re: Tuesday, January 8, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Having never seen "Dumbo" really came back to bite me in the ass... Speaking of the Philadelphia Inquirer, Tricia Nadolny's reporting on sexual, emotional, and physical abuse in drum & bugle corps (a topic near and dear to my heart) is absolutely fucking phenomenal. Seems like I've heard "shoestring...
