ART

One of its principal members said, "One morning, one of us, having no black, used blue instead," and this movement was born.

Is "Louis Gates" acceptable when the correct response is "Henry Louis Gates"?
They gave it to Anne in the first round.
Would "Wilkes Booth" be acceptable for "He assassinated Abraham Lincoln"?

0/5 in Religion Holidays. I have heard of Shrove Tuesday maybe once.

I knew Alan Moore = Watchmen (thank you, Linkara), but was drawing a blank on his name.

Lach Trash on Esperanza Spalding. She and Bon Iver really stuck out to me as very, very odd recent winners for Grammy Award for Best New Artist. I mean, that award doesn't go to some niche act with little to no mainstream chart action. Zac Brown Band and fun. make far more sense IMO.

"Story of O" seemed way undervalued at $400 IMO. Surprised that The Casual Vacancy was a.) down at $1200, and b.) a TS.

I ran Misnamed Animals, but couldn't get puma = panther. I somehow got stuck on "polecat", which I know isn't a cat. (Or a Pole, for that matter.)

"Synonym for chorus" -> "corral"? RTFC, man.

Not a guess on FJ!

If he was ever called that, then sure. I don't know enough about him to say either way.

"Chorale" is a homophone. It wasn't a great guess, but it wasn't as egregious as you make it out to be.

Well, at least my strategy of 'name a random -ism' worked. Is that a famous anecdote? Is there some connection that I was supposed to make? Wasn't happening here.

I'd also like to know why they accepted Louis Gates.

J! Round
$9,600 Coryats / $12,000 without negatives
* I ran Which Religion's Holiday and clammed on the $1000 clue for Ends in "Sh." I guess the voices in my head started talking about a perfect game to jinx me. :oops:
* I was shocked Paul McCartney was missing from the Bass and Vocals category. I was secretly hoping for Les Claypool, too, but at least we got Geddy Lee. I couldn't remember if Simmons played bass or guitar, and was waffling between him and Ace Frehley when the answer was given. Shucks.
* Whiffed on the DD; guessed Arizona instead of the proper New Mexico.

DJ! Round
$12,400 Coryats / $15,200 without negatives (Total: $22,000 / $27,200)
* I ran Misnamed Animals, and that was just about all of the damage I did in the round. Five right in that category, and only ten others for the round, matched with two wrong and thirteen passes. Yikes.
* Clearly I need to read racier novels! I only got Lady Chatterly, and I've never heard of anything else in the category. :oops: (Any salacious recommendation?)

FJ!
Got it on a guess. Better lucky than good, I guess!

Oh, duh.

What was the TOM for the New Mexico DD?

I love the pretension behind the middle name-last name conceit as a response. "Who is Weston Loomis Pound?"

Another FJ I get because what else was it going to be? I'm not familiar with the quote but the show is not going to ask about Suprematism.

Wasn't happening here either. I have no idea why they thought that quote would or should lead us to the correct response. I figured "blue" was the TOM somehow and followed it to Picasso but didn't know where to go from there. I ended up saying Cubism even though I knew Picasso's blue period was not the same as his cubist period. I thought Mark's guess of Fauvism was terrific and Salvo's of Modernism wasn't bad either. Anne's guess of Impressionism was by far the weakest. Except for the part where it was right.

I got distracted when I looked at the clue earlier, trying to remember the name of an art movement with blue in the title, but figured that Der Blaue Reiter is probably not going to be a FJ answer.

Yes Blue Rider is way too intelligent an answer. Except for the one time it is and Alex acts dumbstruck that no one got it.

I think the thought process is as follows: color had to be important for a specific reason. The night sky is black. Except when not, because you have to use blue. Then, you've got "Impression: Sunrise." Or so I guess.

We went to college together. Everyone called him Skip Gates and he still uses that. Never heard him called Louis without the Henry.

I have no idea where they pulled that from, but I'd hardly call it how the movement was born. I know a fair amount about Impressionism, and had never heard this one. In fact, if you Google the quote (in quotes), there aren't an awful lot of references to it on the Web. Nope, this was a real stinker of a clue with very little pointing you correctly to the response. Boo, hiss. (FTR, I responded Fauvism to have something regarding color.)

My first thought was Hudson River School (landscapes might use a lot of blue), then I realized Alex was using his accent again.

Yeah, I noticed that.

I also thought it was weird that Alex told Salvo he knew he'd get in first on the Italy clue, especially before Salvo's answer.

That's a good enough ruling for me!

For FJ, I started with fauvism, but "blue instead of black" didn't seem quite right (I thought fauvism was more about odd/bright shades of the same colors), so I switched over to impressionism.

You may have heard it called Fat Tuesday. I prefer the name Pancake Tuesday.

The Zia sun symbol is a state symbol of NM. It's also on the state flag, state highway signs, and many of their license plate designs.
