Good news - I have an upcoming audition in L.A. :D
Good luck and have fun!
Thanks! Not my first time, but I'm still a little nervous. I guess that can be a good thing. :)

Re: TD 396 - MINI-TD #3

Unless you're going to allow do-overs on question 1, I'm already out. I submitted my answers before the question was edited and clarified.

Re: TD 393 - A-B-C (Q1-Q9 revealed)

At last a singleton after sucking sheep all through this reveal. How is Hannah from Desperate Survivor a sheep? Hardly anyone watched that show. Certainly few people watched Desperate Survivor :D , a few more (but not enough) watched Designated Survivor. I'm still early in Season 2 on my DVR. I'm r...

I have an irrationally strong desire to be in "You Are the Category" some year, but, unfortunately, I didn't take that into account when I chose my username.
It was a great and fun surprise to be part of the category this year! :D

Well, the thing I was afraid would happened just happened: I got The Call!

But since I just taped Who Wants to be a Millionaire, the Jeopardy! door is closed

Leave me alone now so I can cry it out :(
Sorry to hear this.

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 6 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

... Any of the dollar amounts attached to the various versions is good. Good news - thanks! :) Bill Cullen hosted the syndicated $25,000 Pyramid from 1974 to 1979; the original network $10,000 Pyramid with Dick Clark premiered in 1973. Oops, that's right. Cullen hosted the original $25,000 version....

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 6 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

Am I the only one here who's never heard of either the piece or the composer for the R6D4 9-pointer? For J! purposes, he's the Czech composer who's not Dvořák, probably best known for his opera The Bartered Bride . Moldau and Libuse seem to be the only other works of his that J! clues have used to ...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 6 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

This is weird - I could've sworn Aaron Copland composed "Grand Canyon Suite", and I see a bunch of other players gave him as the answer too. Now I see it's not just me and a few others - there are blogs, websites and even books that give him as the composer. Here's a web page from an elementary scho...

Re: Summer Hiatus Challenge 2018--Round 6 Instant Replay (SPOILERS)

It looks like I misunderstood a couple of the game show hosts questions. I was going to post a question about the wording of the 4-pointer, but I think I've figured out what I misunderstood. WRT the "$___ Pyramid" question, I hope credit will be given for any version of the game. It has changed doll...

Re: TD 392 - Mini-TD - Q4-Q5 RESULTS

The question said there were ten - I assume #10 (which went unused) was Brunei. Was that the one you had in mind?

I briefly considered Cyprus, which is at arguably Asian.
