Re: Monday, March 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

How was Saint-Saens a triple-stumper when they give you French and "Saint"? never heard of him Sorta surprised by this given that his most well-known work is entitled Danse Macabre . Don't forget Carnival of the Animals. A teacher in elementary school played it for us. It's the first classical piec...

Re: Monday, March 18, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had a brief moratorium last week on hating "meaningless orthographic coincidence" clues, but after this FJ I'm back to hating...At least this one rewarded something - memorization of the BP winners, which I haven't done. But then again I'd just written Moonlight when time ran out, and I knew Spotl...

Re: Adult Online Test: Apr 9, 10, 11

I always think the tests are weighted more toward Art&lit and history I agree, but I usually get those and miss the gimme pop culture questions. I only got 50% of that LL Mid-Season Classic question about memoirs. Results are now up, so we can talk about it. Never heard of Educated but I just added...

Re: Friday, March 15, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

I had a third correct response for the "bewilder" clue: flummox. Same. Should I count it? Why, hello there! flum·mox /ˈfləməks/ verb INFORMAL perplex (someone) greatly; bewilder. Yup. Still not sure why they reversed vex. It didn't seem right to me either. Most dictionaries I checked don't have it....

I was impressed by Lindsey's get in the book DD - was there any TOM for that at all? Folks have already disputed it's a Midwest city. I know I read that book's review in the New York Times and I still couldn't recall what it was about. (Maybe Lindsey did too.) Has anybody seen a dictionary definitio...

Re: Wednesday, March 13, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yeah, Sam's quip during his interview regarding "the football" was a pretty good indication he might not get this FJ. :D He also talked about being a big movie fan, so I think his age was at least as responsible for his missing this...It got 4 Oscar nominations, but yes, he's too young to remember ...

I had just typed up this post graciously, I felt, conceding what a very good guess Neil Simon was before discovering at the last minute that he was in fact the right answer. I was so sure about Albee I hadn't bothered to click the spoiler box, and have carried myself with a false smugness for two e...

I normally don't pay attention to the contestant interviews, but Josh's last words are particularly haunting given recent events. :shock: Instaget FJ. I guess it does help to be of a certain age. :geek: I'd say Josh's last words were a pretty lame excuse for not seeing the Great Wall...He's had so ...

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

Speaking of clear, I'm not sure why they negged "5 by 5" in the first place. I think that's the response that Kristin originally said aloud without ringing in. Alex had to tell her to ring in, then she rang in and gave an "incorrect" response of "5 by 5" (now said twice) which Alex was quick to giv...

I love seeing Brad beat Ken again!!! And it’s great to see how awesome Larissa is again. Slightly tougher board today but simple FJ. At pub trivia tonight we had a question about the longevity of some tv shows & I mentioned J at 35. To be honest, I knew the answer from the numbered amendments. Woul...

I recognized all those celebrity faces EXCEPT W. Kamau Bell :(
Speaking of which, shouldn't Ken have been ruled wrong on this? The guy's first name is Walter...(I would have accepted W., but not just Kamau Bell, considering Alex's instructions...)

For the clue for which the right response was Deadpool 2 , the sequence of wrong responses that came from the players matched my sequence of guesses, Mamma Mia 2 (no that wouldn't have a Cher song even though she's in it), Blade Runner (no they won't accept that), Blade Runner...(unlike Roger, I co...
