Re: Thursday, July 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

When Jaws first came out, a friend and I were standing in the very long line to get in and were discussing how we were going to take my little sailboat (fondly named "Le Vent") out for a sail the next day. After the movie, we looked at each other and said "Hell no!" So did you sell it to a non-movi...

Re: Friday, July 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Later Vincent got caught blurting #1 on Carlin’s list and the show had to use an audible beep to censor it. Vincent’s mouth was not blurred as some shows do, so it was easy to lip read it started with S, ended with T and had four letters. Lip read? The word was more audible under the beep than a ce...

Re: Thursday, July 12, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Grey Gardens as a NHOI seems not easy to me with so many ways for it to ping someone's radar. Movies, TV, stage, pop culture references, prior J! clues... The original film by the Maysles brothers is one of the great documentaries of the 20th C. Little Edie Beale is an unforgettable character. http...

Re: Wednesday, July 11, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

NHO "noel" meaning a Christmas song. As in "The First Noel," which is heard in every church and every shopping mall every Christmas. I'm familiar with that carol noel, but Noel is capitalized in the lyrics, suggesting that the song's title refers to "the first Christmas" rather than "the first Chri...

Clue 30 in the J round was definately re-dubbed by Alex. Then he made a comment about being tongue tied just before the break, and that he would "explain it when we return". I was expecting him to say something about the sound edit, but he just mentioned the tie games last week. What gives? No, he ...

I probably wouldn't have gotten this FJ if I hadn't thought about Truman's presidency after the other recent FJ about him...in fact, I went from LBJ to Truman and then cast about for someone else, sure they wouldn't be dipping into that well so soon...luckily TR didn't come so Truman remained on the...

NHO Water Wings either. Huh.

And I was reading Woof's comment above at the exact moment the lecture I was listening to uttered the name "Albert North Whitehead." :shock:
Even weirder: His name was Alfred!... ;)

Re: Thursday, July 5, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I see that some of you thought this was a bad clue but I thought it was possible to pin it down. Uncle Tom's Cabin was widely read even outside of the US; Queen Victoria famously was reported to have wept while reading it. Yes, personally I found this one much easier than last night's...I had a lit...

Wait a minute...didn't Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young play at Woodstock?? So I think I'll forgive myself for not bringing them to mind as a 3-man group that fit the clue...(Yes, it's obvious in hindsight, and yes, I understand Neil Young didn't come back to Woodstock in 1994...)

Re: Monday, July 2, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The ghost of Hamlet's father never mentions a porcupine, so that was an odd clue, especially for the $400 box. The correct response is "what is a porpentine?" Same animal, but not the same name or pronunciation. The accepted and presumably expected response was simply incorrect. (Note: Don't bother...

That was a rough start to the game with two players still in the red at DD1. BOOK OF THE MONTH wanted a response with a month of the year. One of the 12. Seems simple enough, yet grasping that categorical hint seemed to fly over the heads of the players. That was pretty odd, particularly since they...

Re: Friday, June 29, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

I think the clue is a little misleading because the idea that Mozart was poisoned has never been widely held by historians. Grove Music Online - there is no credible evidence to support the notion that he was poisoned, by Salieri or anyone else. But Amadeus , a work of historical fiction, certainly ...
