I was so sure that Abramovic was Frida Kahlo that I gave the three points to a different question. Fortunately, my opponent's theater score was so bad and he missed Into the Woods as well.

And no MCWA. So everyone just threw up their hands basically. I think I put Von Furstenberg who I know isn't even an artist but I had no guess whatsoever.

"That Staring Lady" was not close enough. But now I know her name, so there's that.

Shockingly high. And count me among the predictable 6(5) tie-ers.
OK, good. When I saw the answer it didn't even bring a hint of recognition for me.

I was second in my rundle for DE until yesterday, which I consider myself very proud of because it keeps me solidly middle of the pack instead of close to the bottom which is where I am when ranked by Total Correct Answers. Yesterday, however, I played some of the worst defense ever, though I believe my choices were justified. My opponent only missed First Person Shooter and Montana, which I thought were the easiest questions by far. I gave Montana a 1 even though my opponent had a .250 in geography, maybe that was my mistake. But he also has a .278 in Art, so I thought the 3 for Abramovich was appropriate there, but alas, 'twas not. A 5(4)-8(4) depressing defeat.

Proof that rookie defense is hard: my opponent assigned me 0 points for a question I answered "Grandma Moses (I have no clue)". I assigned her 3 points for that. I lost 9(6)-6(4)

And you will remember her exact name for exactly how long?

I had my opponent pegged for an old biddy (please don't be on here) - so gave 3 to the FPS question. Whoops.

Well, today is Day 1. But you're right, Randy, we haven't yet proven that if I remember on Day n, then I will also remember on Day n+1.

Yeah, Abramovic was a "yeah, I've heard of her, vaguely, but I would never have been able to tell you her name" for me.

"Into the Woods" would have been harder if there wasn't an Oscar-bait-y adaptation last year with Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, James Corden, Emily Blunt, Chris Pine, Anna Kendrick, etc.
Not many people can say they've lost four times on Jeopardy!.

Yeah, I knew that Paderewski would play tough but I can't believe that he had a lower get rate than she had.

I've also never heard of "Into The Woods" but looks like I'm in the minority on that.
There was a viral news story a few months ago about Abramovic's performance art installation - pictured in the clue - where she sat silently at a table and looked at gallery goers without speaking. The last person who sat next to her was a former partner whom she hadn't seen in many years, and the video of her trying to hold herself together went around the internet.

Of course, I knew all this immediately, but never had a chance of remembering her name.

Whereas Abramovic was one of my easiest insta-gets so far, but I completely forgot Montana existed when trying to picture big states that weren't AK/TX/CA.

If you've never heard of her, a lot of her pieces are interesting and her dedication to her work is impressive, but how much you actually like her/her work depends a lot on how irritated (or not) you are by performance art in general. Personally, some of the stuff she's done I like, some of it I think is just dumb.
Be that as it may, Alex, those people have never been in my kitchen.

I was fairly sure Montana was fourth, but have to say I wasn't 100% confident which was bigger between California and Montana. I would have expected more than 6% to guess California.

I had "The Woman Who Stares at Ghosts". Not my best effort, but I figured that to be in line with Thorsten's severe humor deprivation.

I've never heard of Abramovic, and I am from her part of the world.

You can't defend against a 9(6) as it is.
