Re: Poll on Boardies Covid-19 Impact

My employer and job are classed as "essential", so Covid-19 has had little impact on my job except traffic on my commute is a lot less. Some of my job I can do from home, but much of it requires me to be in the office. I know nobody who has had it. I wear masks in public in accordance with the promu...

Re: TD 447 - Grab Bag (Final Standings)

My “all-sheep all-the-time” strategy fell apart at the end with I think my best TD finish so far. If I’d thought to use my drop, I might have cracked the Top 10. Thanks for the game, threearruda.

Guesses Fillmore on Tuesday. Negged Friday with Alice Walker; knew it wasn’t Maya Angelou, went back and forth between Morrison and Walker before settling on the incorrect answer.

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

Winwood's association with Clapton is starting to ring a bell with me now. My stepdad likes Eric Clapton so he has mentioned Winwood's name to me several times. Still couldn't name any Winwood songs off the top of my head, but I at least remember who he is now. Steve Winwood is kind of an odd rock ...

Can't say I've heard of Steve Winwood or the song associated with him. You play the organ, right? Steve Winwood is one of the greatest organists in rock - as well as being one of the best blue-eyed soul singers in rock, and a crackerjack guitarist too. Check out his classic organ and vocal parts on...

Yeah, that got the DVD forum I frequented back in the day hot under the collar. As if tampering with Star Wars wasn't enough, Lucas then goes after IJ. Technically "Raiders of the Lost Ark" is incorrect now. I saw Raiders in its IMAX rerelease (2012 I think) and at a couple of “classic movie nights...

Chalk up another Ben-Hur on Tuesday.

Re: Tuesday, April 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

As long as I've been alive, it seems that two movies are shown on network TV every blessed year, right around Passover/Easter. One is The Wizard of Oz and the other is The Ten Commandments. Hmmm...I seem to recall the Wizard of Oz showing up on CBS right after Thanksgiving every year when I was a t...

Re: Tuesday, April 28, 2020 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Every once in a while, it seems the game writers think something is so obvious that no research is needed only to be wrong. Today it was in the double-vowel category with the clue "What a plane is doing moving down a runway, preparing for take-off". I could not come up with anything with a double-v...
