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 dollar values several times, and as I read the question, it could refer to any of those versions - the ones Dick Clark hosted (various dollar values), the one that was revived ($100,000), or its revived name (just "Pyramid"). Also, fwiw, Bill Cullen was the original host of the show, when it was known as the $10,000 Pyramid.

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 school's music department.


And here's a book written for teachers!

Given how it was marketed as just "Pyramid" when Donny Osmond hosted it, I put that since I didn't know which integer value of n was proper for "The $n Pyramid" at the time and should be accepted.

Any of the dollar amounts attached to the various versions is good.

Bill Cullen hosted the syndicated $25,000 Pyramid from 1974 to 1979; the original network $10,000 Pyramid with Dick Clark premiered in 1973.

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 cue him.

I'm surprised they've never mentioned "Má vlast", the longer work that "Die Moldau" is part of.

Oops, that's right. Cullen hosted the original $25,000 version. :)

It looks to me like Birdman has 6 words following the title instead of 5. All the versions I can see call it "Birdman or (the Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)"

I gave the answer of "Or the Virtue of Ignorance" and that's not the intended answer but it does use 5 words that complete the title of the film and they're all in the right order. If the clue had asked for a 6 word response I think I would have gotten it right.
I had a dream that I was asleep and then I woke up and Jeopardy! was on.

I clammed because I couldn't recall the dollar value and figured if I was wrong, I'd lose points.

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.
