Re: J! in the Media

This is a bit self-indulgent, but podcasts are part of "the media," so here it is. Local comedian Brent Weinbach, whom I became familiar with because of a video game music podcast, also does a podcast called "Pointed Questions" where he simply interviews people (alongside a "sidekick" who says a th...

Re: Your guess for Thursday's FJ [SPOILER]

I had a Gemini to Libra. My thinking was I liked my second instinct better than my first one and since I was born in October I did not want to miss and have it be Libra when I'm guessing anyway.

We're at 0/9 getting it and 8/9 taking a guess.
9/9. I did put down Gemini to have something, figuring "two" was the key word. Right book, wrong page.
Thank you. That will make all of us happy to see you took the 1/12 chance. It's all we ask.

Too bad the players did not know how to complete “Drive for show” with the U.S. Open beginning today. Funnier was three tries to complete Sherwin-Williams color Cut the ___. Adam just had to add the S for the D.O.E. clue. Doesn’t he know that drives people nuts? The FJ! clue was a miss for me and th...

Re: Wednesday, June 13, 2018 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Ran the 1968 TV category. Pre-called Brady Bunch, but I knew there were plenty of other options. Loved the distaste with which Catherine finally called for the first clue in that column after all alternatives had been exhausted. Like Mark, I'm glad they were able to finish the category even with a ...
