Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

"Pretty Woman" is a film?! As opposed to...? A song by Roy Orbison to which the title of the film clearly alludes and which appears in the soundtrack of the film? And the answer of course is, yes. The song by Roy Orbison is "Oh, Pretty Woman" so there's no possible way to confuse the two titles. An...

Re: Thursday, May 23, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Now THIS was a game. Nate really made it a tough fight.

"Pretty Woman" is a film?!

0/5 in Numeric Phrases.

No guess on FJ! "Take the A Train" is in my brain space, but it just wasn't there in 30 seconds. I think "Take Five" was blocking the mental path.

Re: Wednesday, May 22, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Vowels threw me. I overthought "aisle" and was thinking maybe it was a something-way. Ended up 0/5 in the category, which is rare for me in a word category. Always have to give pause when I skunk a word category. However, going 0/5 on Mary Poppins was not surprising to me. "Emily Blunt" is an utterl...

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

I remember teachers loved to show Glory in the classroom. Pepsi made an edited version for classroom use (of course, with the Pepsi logo prominently displayed during the introduction) that removed a scene where somebody gets their head blown off. For some reason I don't even remember us covering mu...

they had one of the most popular music videos of the 1990s

you don't recall public enemy's collaboration with anthrax on "bring the noise"?
Remember, I listened to almost nothing but country until I was 25. I'm still catching up.

Re: The Official TPH Education Thread (POTENTIAL GAME DAY SPOILERS)

Half the archive hits I get by doing "born on the fourth of july" site:j-archive.com are false positives (i.e., category names, clues saying that a famous person was born on the Fourth of July, etc.). The few that are actual hits are much further down the board, and the next-most recent is from 200...

TV Cartoons? Let's see if I can run this. (Spoilers: Yes.) Also got all but SWAT in Acronyms. I heard 1990s Songs for $400 in Walmart yesterday. Not a glimmer of recognition in the rest of the category. Can't say I've heard of Blind Melon or Public Enemy. No guess on FJ! Can't say that I recognize t...

Re: Monday, May 20, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

...NHO "Born on the Fourth of July". That seemed very obscure for the top box. That movie is anything BUT obscure. Won two Oscars including Best Director, nominated for several more including Best Picture. Did pretty well at the box office, too... I think. It was a very much-talked-about movie duri...

I loved that James wrote his name in the style of the logo today. Reminds me of the weird ways Ken wrote his name (my favorites being "dictionary pronunciation" and "cuneiform"). Double overturn before FJ!? That has to be a rarity. Hammer didn't run Hammer. Didn't get the bottom 2. Murphy Brown, Deg...

Re: Friday, May 17, 2019 Game Recap and Discussion (SPOILERS)

Not sure wherefore the Nat Geo discussion, as the response that seems to have sparked it was "National Geog.", which conceivably could have been dinged as too-little-yet-too-much à la "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Heart". My guess is it would not, as "geog." is a common enough abbreviation of "geographic" g...

Re: FJs for the 5/13/19 week

:( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( I was 2/5 in the tournament. the tournament was 2 weeks long...10 episodes with 10 final jeopardy clues...how were you 2 out of 5? Fingers got ahead of brain. I was trying to say I was 2/5 the first week and 0/5 this week and forgot to put the latter half of the sentence in.

So I seem to be stuck in another rut. Last two clues, I just stared blankly the entire 30 seconds because nothing sparked. Should I just accept this? How can I get better?

MVP was an automatic 0/5 for me. Also didn't recognize anything in 2010s. Syria?!? And the Books category was yet another 0/5. Blanked on C. S. Lewis, no hope on the rest. Ran Sometimes Capitalized. VIP! was another 0/5 for me. I thought "Impressionist" was tough for $400. I got 3/5 in that category...
