Re: Two Barbara Lowe games posted to YouTube

The prank is kind of ruined by YouTube's forcing you to watch an ad first, even while revealing the title of the video you are about to watch.

Re: Friday, March 26, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

During the interviews, when Oz said Susan's hometown of Portland, Maine was "a stone's throw" from Paul's hometown of Portsmouth, Rhode Island, I wondered if he was confusing it with the much-closer Portsmouth, New Hampshire. I got FJ but am a little surprised nobody guessed John C. Fremont. I mean...

Haven’t the judges negged “Singing in the Rain” in the past? It sounded to me like she added the “g,” but my CC had the correct spelling.

Re: Friday, March 5, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

this conversation about American rock bands reminds me of one we had several years ago on this site, regarding that game that is the opposite of TD (the name escapes me). The question was "name an American rock band" and we were all over the place, because the biggest American rock artists tend to b...

Anyway, Michael Richards was solid in his guest run and he'd be fine to take the job on a permanent basis, but I prefer Ken thus far.
Put me down as definitely wanting to see Kramer as host.

Not accepting “fed” for “federal reserve”? I guess since the question was cut off there may have been a reason for this, but cmon judges.

It seems like principal architect is someone who is in charge of a building, who supervises all of the many construction projects that go on at a large facility. Did I M Pei fulfill that role? I think his function was only to design the pyramid. He was probably never architect in Residence at the L...

These two singers whose names rhyme with each other had #1 hits with the same title; one in 1994, the other in 2008.

Who are Madonna and Rihanna? ("Take a Bow")
I got this one, but only because it was a question on an old episode of The Chase.

Re: Wednesday, February 24, 2021 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS) by Archivists

I have a feeling that FJ clue was pretty easy for those of us in the over 50 demo. Avon was a bigger deal 40 years ago. Would younger people even know Avon exists? I'm 34 and I got it, but probably because I watched Edward Scissorhands and remember "Avon calling!" Depends if they're fans of Edward ...

I knew the book Pioneers (I own a bookstore) but then went and confused Cooper with Jack London. Then said Kipling for Tolstoy—the name did not sound particularly Russian to me. Did Mike say the name with a bit of a Russian accent? No nearly as strong as Alex would sometimes do, but I thought I hea...

Apparently I can't count to 8 fast enough for crossword clues - I thought "trinket" was 8. I don't know why I thought a talisman could also be used for evil or bad luck (ie the monkey paw from the Brady Bunch), but I guess it's for good luck, mainly.
Monkey paw? Do you mean the Tiki idol?

The clue never said it was. So you would have been okay with CSNY or NKotB being in the category?

Prosecco was my favorite WAG of the night Prosecco seemed like a great guess to me. I said Asti, but when she said Prosecco I thought she could possibly be correct, and turns out Prosecco is also named for an Italian town.

How does "bang" mean "to defeat"?
I don’t get that either. Can anyone use it in a sentence?
