Re: Tuesday, January 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

33,000 coryat. This category is squarely in my wheelhouse and was an instaget by "theologian." Calvin and Hobbes is a fine strip but far from my favorite. ;) Disappointed that Rick Roles didn't have Rick and Morty in it. I thought the Language category was obscure too. NHO "Indo-European". You've NH...

33,600 coryat. Instaget final. Surprised "Benedict" didn't get a BMS, though I can see the argument why it wouldn't need it (there's only been one since the Euro has been A Thing) For at least the last few seasons, the ordinal number hasn't been required unless the question specifically asks for it....

Why would you expect one?
Because he spent some time in jail awaiting trial after accidentally killing his wife.
Okay, I see what you were going for now. Maybe throw a Walley World, U Thant, or Ken Olin in there next time to break it up a bit?

39,600 coryat. Early to mid-20th century art is my jam, so this final couldn't have been more of an instaget. It's astonishing that a meeting with Dali would disabuse anyone of the notion of the Surrealists as anything but a bunch of “absolute cranks." Bartok, Berlioz, Borodin, Bruckner, Barber I ho...

30,200 coryat. Knew final had to be a president but guessed Eisenhower. When the MAKING THE ZINE category was revealed, I was doubtful they'd include anything I'd recognize as a zine but then Razorcake showed up in the bottom box. "Angry" is a rather inapt descriptor of the genre. "Noisy", "dissonan...

33,800 coryat. Instaget final. Glad Saorise Ronan didn't come to mind or I might've had a bit of a dilemma but I'm fairly certain I would've still gone with Lawrence.

Based on where Carthage was located in relationship to the Italian peninsula, Sicily made the most sense as a field of battle over the more remote Malta and Sardinia.

Re: LL79: For the LLamas

In my first season in an A rundle, I was able to pull out an 8th place finish in A Taiga despite a minor drop in my Q% (from .705 down to .698). Ending up with the most favorable CAA (97) in the rundle certainly helped out. If not for the :cry: decision of going with "indefinite article" over "inter...

$27,000 coryat. Instaget final. Ran Musicians' Memoirs and Art-icles. They could have changed the N in the FJ category to an H and it still would have been accurate. Jokingly, I said to my brother "Horse Mythology" when the category was revealed and we agreed that could totally be a FJ! category wit...

31,400 coryat. Instaget final.

"God Bless America" is a tad tougher of a tune than "The Star-Spangled Banner" but "America the Beautiful" is the better built boat of patriotic paeans.

31,400 coryat. Had a little trouble getting to McDormand, not only from the aforementioned 1996 release/1997 ceremony confusion, but also the supremely disingenuous description of the film as being directed by one brother and produced by the other. Union rules at the time notwithstanding, it was/is ...

22,000 coryat. Not a great score but at least it was +4600 on the combined coryat.

Got final primarily from knowledge of Hawthorne's friendship with Franklin Pierce, our only Granite State president. The year and "family cursed" helped confirm.
