Re: Friday, April 21, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

INSTAGET FJ...had it right before Alex read 'L'Aurore'. Nice to not only avoid an 0/5 FJ week, but also end on a quite rapidfire TS get. Ran Alma Maters, 1990s #1 Albums, Broke English, and Animals On The Map (including the Kangaroo Island and Pigeon Forge LT); and almost ran It's All Sam-Antics (in...

Re: Thursday, April 20, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

Who the hell is Melissa McCarthy? Somebody who is way overexposed and, per FJ tonight, way overpaid. (Can you tell I am not a fan? :P ) And no, I didn't get Ms. McCarthy...I wish I had come up with Amy Adams or Lindsey Lohan just to remotely have a guess. This is shaping up to be such a wonderful w...

Re: Tuesday, April 18, 2017 Game Recap & Discussion [SPOILERS]

I am so, SO glad that I wasn't the only one here to say crow's nest for FJ...I kept thinking to myself "That seriously can't be it...that is not a 'piece of equipment'..." , but nothing else could come to mind in those thirty seconds. At least the actual answer gave me a brilliant idea for the movie...

Fell for the Vanderbilt negbait on FJ. I knew John C. Calhoun = somewhere in the South, but completely forgot he was a South Carolina man. :oops: I too thought Clemson was named after the town and had no earthly idea the namesake was a person. Ran The Marvel Universe (natch :mrgreen:), 3 + 3, The Ma...

Re: TD 339 Urban Legends/Q1, Q2, Q3, Q4 & bonus answers

42 points may not be a good TD score...but anything that allows yours truly a reason to break out a little "Swing 42" (along with "Hungarian Dance No. 5" and "Swing 39") is not all that bad.

Danke schön for a fun TD!

I, for one, am relieved to finally know that the Smurfs have favorites among the contestants and come out to celebrate when their preferred one wins. :lol: I was waiting for someone to say something about that. I hope Gargamel wasn't lurking around backstage that day... Rut-roh...I think I just com...

I came SO close to saying Pennsylvania for the I-70 question. This game can be so maddening.

No chance in thirty seconds for me on FJ...and the very moment the title was revealed, I did a facepalm. Grr, argh.

Ran Billboard Country Albums (including the problems LT), and got all three DDs (garnet/garment, litmus, and Cape Hatteras), and the Byrd and McCormick LT.

Ran King James Bible, and almost ran Puerto Rican History (got sales taxed) and Vaudeville (tied up by Will Rogers' rope). Also got the chrysanthemum and Canada DDs. And I should have gotten...

How about the "I've heard of David Hockney before, but never seen his work" group? That would be about where I'd place myself...although I couldn't pull his name out of my mental hat in thirty seconds to save my life. When Alex revealed David Hockney, I thought to myself "I know I've read/happened ...
