Looks like off the video (thanks, Sue!) I managed 43 of these when a few guesses (Byzantium*, This Is Us, Plato, Chicago) hit, plus a ra expo radical on 31. Missed 6, 15, 23, 29, 36, 40 and 45 with India, Po (when I couldn't think of the Tagus--missed the right bank clue), Artemis, Jiffy Pop, pupil, Cole Porter and Reader (total WAG).

*If I've read that Yeats poem it's been decades, but the title rang a bell.

As I've mentioned previously, I typically run 38-42. I think I would have had 42 on this one (same as yesterday's), assuming that I would have typed enough of "Kwanzaa" to get credit after initially derping.

I would have been tempted to say "surd" for "radical" just because it's a fun word, but I don't think I would have done that if it counted. I always get Gauguin and Toulouse-Lautrec confused--by the time I figured out that Gauguin was probably wrong, I was certain I didn't have enough time to enter Toulouse-Lautrec so I just left Gauguin.

Thanks to sherder and Ontario Quizzer.
