Re: Thursday, April 9, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Helena who? Yeah, I'm not getting any of those. No hope on 13th Century either. I'm guessing even a generational curmudgeon like yourself is at east aware of multiple movies with Helena Bonham Carter. She's been working regularly in big moves for over 20 years. Specifically she's been in a bunch of...

Re: Thursday, April 9, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

There is going to be a percentage of comic book historians who are muttering and foaming over the Bob Kane question ... unlike Siegel and Shuster (who get equal credit for the creation of Batman), the Kane family was quick to get DC to agree that Bob is the only official "creator" of Batman, despite...

Re: Online Test - Recent(ish) events

I have nothing to add but my undying thanks! I was doing up literature quiz sheet right before stopping to read this, and was extremely unsatisfied with my best sellers setup; never mind I hadn't even gotten to notable deaths. I was compiling 2013-2015 ... is it (relatively) safe to think that they ...

Do not go gentle into that good night... rage, rage against the dying of the Light! I see someone else rewatched Interstellar over the weekend... :lol: Generational movie reference thing. I know the entire poem because of an entirely different poet; Rodney Dangerfield. https://www.youtube.com/watch...

It's well-known she was a Laker Girl.
And that her career started as Janet's choreographer. I predicted her being in the category before the start.

Told my gf the FJ today; she also guessed Grand Central, but she correctly remembered that there IS specific art on the ceiling of the main terminal, just didn't know if that was the name. It shows the constellations of the zodiac: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/7b/NYC_Grand_Central...

Morrissey is one of my least favorite music acts of all time. I was angry with the show for even making me have to answer with his name.

Re: Monday, April 6, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I think of several major buildings in Manhattan when I hear "Art Deco". I've been in most of them. I was never a regular user of Grand Central, so I got caught there, too. I think this was one of the larger FJ negs in my recent memory.

Re: Thursday, April 2, 2015 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I thought Sports AKA was way too obscure. The Chicago Bears, Dallas Cowboys and Montreal Canadiens were easy for regular watchers of ESPN. The Whiz Kids and Wheeze Kids Phillies was much harder, but would not have been a bottom row clue on Sports Jeopardy. I swept the category, only knowing cursory...

Re: 2015 Online Test

I apologize if I didn't find this earlier in the thread ... but is there a link, thread or general advice anywhere for a 1st time test taker? I've read the stuff about the audition, but I'd like to do my best to specifically prepare for the online test first. One step at a time, right? :D

If Michael were my generation, he would have easily picked up about 4-5k. The Miracles? One Day At A Time? C'mon man, those are my jams. :D

The one episode this month I missed and it had a Hong Kong Phooey clue AND an entire category of superhero secret identities?

That's like my Clavin dream board come to life.

Stop confusing all the non smarks. :p

I'm concerned, it's been 12 hours since I filled out the form, and no email, and it won't let me try to register again.

This link just worked for me.

EDIT: Really, they're gonna make me go to Boston for the live audition? No NYC *or* Philly?
