Re: FJs for the 2/4/19 week

So Taming of the Shrew is polling at 19% right now. I imagine that's not a record low; can anyone tell me which clues have scored lower? Or, I suppose, more usefully, can anyone tell me how I can find out for myself which clues have scored lower? I did a search of my name and liederkranz to find so...

Re: Thursday, February 7, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had JFK before Alex finished reading the clue, then I had to take several seconds to do the math. OK, so now I need a one-letter presidential movie. I then decided that, while it is entirely possible that someone has made a movie about John Quincy Adams called "Q", that someone was very unlikely t...

Re: Tuesday, February 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I forget the clue value and the exact wording I'd accept "pronounce". (For future reference: If the game recap is sitting at the top of the thread, it means the game is in J! Archive.) Thanks for the support, and thanks for the hint about the archive. I guess I didn't know that the game recap and t...

Re: Tuesday, February 5, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I got all the LT in the first round. I think that must be a first for me. In the "Express Yourself" category, I forget the clue value and the exact wording, but the response they accepted was "verbalize". My response was "pronounce". I'm giving myself credit for that. FJ! was pretty much an instaget...

So I'm trying to figure out what a Presl is, and in what way John isn't actually one, but is only like one. :D

I was thinking Bartok, but for some reason what came out of my mouth was "Berlioz" :oops:

After "When he died in Samoa in 1894 ..." I said to myself, "it's either Stevenson or Gauguin"; but after "except Scotland" I knew for sure it was Stevenson.

NHO the memoirs and have not seen the recent movie, so I was lost for FJ. Guessed Christopher Tolkien, but was pretty sure he didn’t qualify as famous.
He also doesn't qualify as dead. :D

I think it can be argued that it doesn't change the pronunciation.

Re: Wednesday, December 19, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

My kids and I have long had a private joke about how Sean Bean's name should be pronounced like "Seen Bawn", so there was no way I was missing that one.

I would have been willing to bet Dylan Thomas was born much earlier than 1914, but Welsh + Poet can't be anybody else.

I"m kinda with TPH on the dwarfs clue. If you've never seen the clock, is there any reason to pick one dwarf over any other?

If I had been spotted Fargo I could probably have come up with McDormand, but I never knew she is married to one of the Coens.

Does anyone else think Emma sounds like Georgia Engel (or at least the characters she plays)?

Guessed honey badger based on melli = honey, but had very low confidence.

I have heard of Dear Evan Hansen but I had no idea what it's about, so I didn't make the connection.

I wrote down Rhine and Danube but I was not 100% certain, because I thought it might be Rhine and Elbe.

Re: Tuesday, October 30, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

How exactly did Alex explain the "3 F Club" category? "chieF oF staFF" has four Fs. When they say things like "each correct response will have n Xs", have they ever meant "at least n Xs" rather than "exactly n Xs"?

Oh, how frustrating -- I knew exactly what they were going for in FJ, but I just couldn't pull it... :oops:
This is exactly the way it went for me, too.
