To me, one of these was easier than the other. I flipped a coin between the correct response and
Spoiler
Burning Man
Spoiler
Which actually started in 1986, it turns out.
and my coin landed well.

Like yesterday, I'm still sensing some edited spots, so the games may be a little rougher than what is airing.

Nice that Mallory got a plug in for her writing work:
Spoiler
Danielle trailed before, during and after each DD though managed to have the lead for the FJ! round. No way Mallory leaving off the first "A" was going to be negged to save Danielle.

Off the FJ! category I wrote Farm Aid, Boneroo (no way I would have spelled Bonnaroo correctly) and the two correct names.

The FJ! clue led me to the correct response due to year and geography with a decent level of confidence though not great. It was my best guess and was happy to be correct. During think time I wondered about more specificity but did not remember what it was called. Thank you Mallory for leaving no doubt about just the main name being good enough.

Using the stats from The Jeopardy! Fan I see that once again it's double digit for Ws and TS clues. Add in 3 unplayed clues and the low combined Coryat and it's too bad something is not quite working well enough with J! sometimes.

Just another non-superchamp game. Ouch. Trash galore.

I would not have taken even a long shot bet on - two negs and TSs on Othello (when spotted kiss) and Buddhism (in Japan, Shintoism was not a bad response though).

I thought Mallory will have a lock after her huge lead in J.

I don't like these kind of FJs. Even though I picked the right combination.

I think this might be the first game I watched previous to reading the recaps here in at least 10 years. It was already posted to Bru-no-no-no* when I got to the gym at 12:30, so I watched today's show instead of yesterday's. Got FJ correct.

But now what am I going to watch when I go to the gym tomorrow?


*We don't talk about websites where the day's game is uploaded.

On an unrelated topic, if you have YouTube Premium, and you "download" something to watch later, and the uploader changes the file to something else and you're connected to the internet, it will update your download to the new file and you won't be able to watch what you originally downloaded.

I had Woodstock '99 but couldn't think of anything to pair it with. I thought Coachella was a film festival.

Woodstock and Burning Man for me, though I considered Lollapalooza and Lilith Fair. I've heard of Coachella, but I thought they made handbags.

I've been misusing "five" all these years. How embarrassing.
I'm smart and I want respect.

Either I had great luck with triple stumpers or those shouldn't have been TS's. And how could they abandon John Goodman like that? Shameful.

I gave Lilith the slip, got as far as Lallapolooza, and got comfortable next to Cherry in the cozy trap.

Yay, on the board for the week.

Woodstock was instaget, and knowing The Simpsons parodied Lollapalooza in the mid-90s helped rule that out. Got there with the 2,500 miles part, as I realized it basically asked to name a big California event (knowing Woodstock already).

I had no problem coming up with Coachella as the later festival, but I forgot if I ever knew that there were multiple Woodstocks. I should have written it down anyway since I had nothing better...I knew it wasn't Altamont!
I figured the FJ would be about someone who performed at Woodstock, so it was even foremost in my mind... :roll:

I was sort of in the same boat. Did think of Coachella, but expected that they were looking for a similar ongoing music event (Newport Folk Festival?) that ended in 99, not a one time anniversary event. Might have thrown in Woodstock with more time.

Had no clue that Woodstock was still going on in 99. Said Coachella and Burning man.

It looks like there were only two Woodstocks... '69 and '99...so technically aren't we due for another in 7 years?
I had Lilith Fair and Lollapalooza... If it wasn't for a 2010 revival, Lilith Fair would've ...at least ended in '99 :lol:
The best thing that Neil Armstrong ever did, was to let us all imagine we were him.
