On a thoroughly unrelated point, did anyone else hear the name Mike Nelson in the opener and start thinking "In the not too distant future, somewhere in time and space..."?
Maybe showing my age, but I was disappointed he wasn't in a wetsuit.

Re: FJs for the 4/12/21 week

No idea how you're supposed to know about Mulholland unless you are from California. I knew about him from reading the book Cadillac Desert . Fascinating book, but perhaps a tad comprehensive unless you're really interested in the history of water utilization in the American West. I have more of a ...

Re: Monday, April 19, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

FJ- I remembered Van Gogh did a painting from an Asylum window or something like that. (Turns out he did many during his year there). I couldn't quite pull the Sunflowers painting in my head to rule out any background objects, but I couldn't have named it either and I felt pretty good about Starry ...

Re: How Did Aaron Rodgers Do as Host?

Using a scale of Alex = 10, my rankings would be Ken, 8.5 Katie/Aaron tied at 7.8 (for different reasons) Mike, 7.0 Oz, 5.5 I liked Aaron's demeanor and interaction with the contestants, but I did find his enunciation a little lazy and slurred. I'm not sure I'd go as far as Opus and term it "mush-mo...

Re: Friday, April 16, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Instaget FJ, and I’m of the opinion that “Utah” in the clue was some modest negbait - but one that a J! player should be able to sidestep. Have to agree. When I saw the clue, I was expecting at least two right and was very surprised at the TS. It's enough of a semi-favorite that it should be a virt...

Can any boardies divulge their secret to getting this? I can't keep Onyx, Agate, and Opal straight, but the Onyx I've seen is amazingly beautiful.

Perhaps a very deep dive, but the name is iconic enough that it's conceivable it might pop up.

Would have missed Piper by saying Lear on the rebound. The name is Learjet (OK, fine, it's Bombardier Learjet), not Lear. Lear doesn't do airplanes. Ah, thanks. I think I was mixing something up. It's worth knowing there are two completely separate companies Lear and Learjet (subsidiary of Bombardi...
