Re: '80s Music category 11/16/17 [Spoilers]

I got the first 3.

If I've heard "To all the Girls..." then I don't recall it. I've obviously heard Rick Astley.

I knew $1,600 was Soft Cell, but was blanking on the name.

I was surprised to see "Black Keys" as a bottom-row DD in a ToC final. The challenge there was not overthinking it and trying to come up with a more technical name.
I feel ashamed because I know who the Black Keys are. I know what black keys are on a piano. But I still said "The Accidentals".

Re: Friday, November 17, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

Buzzy's TDD was ballsy. Alan tried, but I have to wonder if his brain had a spoonerism/Freudian slip. Mom thought he was nervous. ==== I was doing so unnecessarily badly on that band name category. While I got TLC, I said Accidentals on the DD, said Whey at $200, said Prank on $800, and clammed on B...

The clue for Kalamata had a near-giveaway TOM with the "'olive' you should know" hint
Is Kalamata that well-known? I don't recall ever hearing of it before about 7:15 this evening.
I've heard of them.

Re: Thursday, November 16, 2017 Game Recap and Discussion [SPOILERS]

The TS clues in LOVE SONGS were painful as I added $6K to my score. I got that...!#$*)$...Astley song (trying not to curse) and Soft Cell. I'm not even sure what songs the other three were. "To All The Girls I've Loved Before" peaked at No. 5 & 12 weeks in the Top 40 "Never Gonna Give You Up" spent...

Lach Trash: tentacles, Kalamata All but "fungi" in Slugs. Apparently my plant knowledge lags behind my animal knowledge. Strangely, I had none of the words in Triple Rhyme Time for $400 because I couldn't get away from "wreck" in time. Mom got it, though. Also didn't have any of the Rhyme Time words...

I also bit on "Dutch" = "Van Buren". That was horrible negbait. Catahoula = Louisiana I knew because of "Catahoula" by the Bellamy Brothers. "Triangle Shirtwaist" definitely passes my "Hawley-Smoot" filter. "Ossicones" I learned from being a furry. I've actually seen "Office Space", but the gruff vo...

I got John Sherman because I knew of the Sherman Antitrust Act. It came up when I was creating the Wikipedia article on a defunct drugstore in Michigan, of all things. Recognized none of those cars, and only Green Bay in Colorful Cities. Got Marcel Duchamp thanks to TV Tropes. I actually rejected "d...

I would like to thank this FJ! for helping me get this one. At the time of the former, I had known the legend of the Pied Piper, but then, I didn't know the "of Hamelin" part at all. And going by that game's thread, I apparently wasn't alone.

I'd say 30 for "magnet school". That'd still put it higher than Ziggy Marley.

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

"Magnet school" and "solar wind" seemed incredibly tough for the top box. Can we poll the former? You’d have better luck polling the latter, if you’ve heard the phrase before “attraction” was your TOM. I’ve heard of “magnet schools”, but that’s it. Have no idea what they are but if I was forced to ...

Austin's interview was brilliant. When was the last "Those Darn Etruscans" reference? I thought that went away in the early 90s. ==== Precalled the first Music for Champs. If there is a more boring rock song than "We Are the Champions", then I have yet to hear it. "Magnet school" and "solar wind" se...

Surprised myself by running French Dip.

On the bottom 3 Mashups, I had only the second film but not the first. I got $800, had "Dial M for Murder" but not "Strangers on a Train".

"Northanger Abbey", despite being very Hawley-Smootish, rings no bells for me. All but "Lone Wolf and Cub" in Manga. Hat tip to all the weebs I know in the furry fandom. :P "Archenemy" can refer to Satan? That clue confused me. Ran Making Words. I thought "date Julius Caesar was murdered" was the ea...
