Re: Thursday, June 24, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Sandy's Hawthorne? Is there some decent logic there for an alternate guess? I'm certain I never looked at Gables or Letter. My guess is she may have been conflating "Pilgrims" with "Puritans" and thinking Scarlet Letter. Had Snowden for Assange. :| I was struggling with differentiating between thos...

(Also, it's very amusing, to me at least, that you say you couldn't name Buttercup's actor and then go on to name her next big movie :D )
I was today years old when I found out she played Jenny.

I am terrible at movies (I haven't been to a theater in ten years and don't watch them at home, and have a lifetime .306 film score in LL) . I knew who played Ferris Bueller's girlfriend.

Re: Wednesday, June 23, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

The Netflix show stumper is understandable as that show would not seem to match up well with the typical J! viewer. I can't wait to see (what, about 1.5 weeks from now :)) if LSV got it. My sister and her boyfriend watch Big Mouth all the time. Didn't miss that one. Though there were a bunch of oth...

Re: 2021 Current Events Study GUIDE. Study GUIDE.

More likely for LL, but Amazon Sidewalk may be a term to remember (controversial attempt to use existing wireless networks to create "smart neighborhoods")

Re: J! in the Media

I'm not convinced by the argument proffered by some that the clue constitutes "sexism", but it was certainly a sloppy clue; frankly, a sloppy category overall. The term appears to have been used in one medical paper and not widely caught on. There was no real reason to include it.

Remember when Austin Rogers said "Who are the Eagles?" in a forlorn, sarcastic tone?

That's how I would have answered the St. Louis Cardinals question.

Well, I thought my guess of 'Billie' was pretty good, what with my Pop Music background. Came up with Holiday, Eilish and Joe Armstrong even!
Then it turns out one of those works was a poem (I recognized none of the works as well).
That's a reasonable guess.

I finished 5th, in the top non-promotion spot. So it's possible but I'll have to see where I get assigned in August.

Re: Friday, June 18, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I took the hint of "European" meaning "not British", but the best I could come up with was Joseph Conrad. :oops: Not a terrible guess IMO; he branched out quite a bit genre-wise (i.e. Secret Agent). You at least got further than I did; I was trying to think of "the name of the guy who wrote Steppen...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

I also had no idea that Guns N' Roses was (kind of) named for a person. I had tickets to see them in concert last year before covid hit. GNR was formed by two bands who were both scheduled to play at the same club on the same night, but half of each band didn’t show up, so they combined to form GNR...

Potato was because of Ireland, the Irish word started with a p, and staplacha seemed like 'staple.'
What steered me in the right direction was "mor" being similar to the Latin word for death.

Re: Wednesday, June 16, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm with TPH on this - they should not have used characters from animated films, or should have tried a different category name. End of whine. Savannah is doing fine as a placeholder. Because of earlier mentions on this board, I can't unhear the occasional "you got its". I like the little bit of ma...

Re: Learned League 89 - May/Jun '21

It looks like as usual, I'm likely to be sitting in the top 10 but with no promotion to C. At least I'm consistent.

I said whiskey instead of bourbon but I'll count it.
I'd BMS it, but I'm willing to be convinced otherwise
I'm fairly confident it would garner a BMS.

I am at least grateful to Richards for hosting on an emergency basis; I never got the sense he saw himself as a serious contender (clickbait articles aside).
