Re: I'm almost ready to post a new TD, but.....

First, what is a TD and second, count me in if it's 60's music, especially the world's greatest R&R band...

Re: Friday, April 13, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

I'm a big U2 fan so Zoo TV was pretty easy although I didn't attend that tour. Honestly, Achtung Baby is a fantastic CD but Zoo TV just seem so...Tom Petty to me. I thought it was quite nice of Alex to give anniversary wishes too. Good, interesting game. I didn't know the Acadia DD when the clue was...

Re: Thursday, April 12, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

The last 2 categories or so of the first round were pre-empted so Diane Sawyer could breathlessly tell me about the Korean missile. I'm kind of glad that Megan made a crappy bet as telling us her dog's full name was a bit annoying. It took a few seconds but All's Well That Ends Well came early enoug...

Yes, under the category of Actor/Directors they asked who directed One-Eyed Jacks in 1961.

Re: Wednesday, April 11, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

Yes, I too was surprised they didn't need "Florence" either but I guess she was the only Mrs. Harding although certainly not the only womanin his life. Best game in a while & the "Tonys?" with the shrug made md laugh. I saw the revival of La Cage & it was quite good. Sorry to see the champ lose so s...

Easy FJ again. I must confess to missing half the show & deleting it before coming here & realizing so many questions went unnoticed by me. what I did catch seemed easy & the winner never seemed in danger. I hope she lasts a while.

Gary Busey was injured in a motorcycle accident & suffered brain injury. He was quite good in the BH biopic. I knew that FJ cold. Easy game with quite a few TS's or so it seemed.

I looked August 1914 on amazon & it's apparently out of print. I suppose I'll have to see if my local library has a copy.

When I was ten I could name every state's Senators. Still can. Still agree with those who say it's unnecessary info. He'll, I even know Ireland's PM & Prez.

I think they've featured about ten questions on the boring ass Kennedy clan this week. Dull episode of the show with a good FJ. Pretty easy for me.

Did it seem like J. Sellers was running out the clock on the last DD? As for Miss Truman, allegedly she didn't actually write those books. Disappointing game overall but Joey's bet saved it.

Re: Audition Emails

I got one of those emails last week about the re-test - while I was traveling through Italy. So it sounds like I'll be waiting till next January since staying up until 2am totake a test with an unreliable Internet connection & my tiny iPhone screen was a non-starter. Oh well, I loved Italy...

Assante was in movies too: He played the nasty French lover of Private Benjamin and he did one of those Stallone monstrosities.

So am I, but I have heard the word before. I had no idea what it meant before tonight though, and I only got it because of the 'lumberjack' TOM.

I learned about logrolling back in the 70's. I'm not sure if it's done as much these days.

So that's now six one-day champs in a row! I agree with previous posts about Texas having a state whale. WTH??? Anyway, these clues seemed quite easy & FJ was an instaget. My grandparents are listed on the Wall of Honor!

Jeopardy! Was much better back then too. Tougher questions, sharper contestants & generally better games.

Sorry about your Mom. Good luck that day!

I'm hoping for an invite to the NYC auditions but I'll be in Italy from this Thursday until early April. I hope I don't miss out on another chance!
