No guess on Thursday.

Never seen Cobra Kai, never read Hunchback, never seen Monet work, never been to CMU

I have listened to Inside Jeopardy! and most recently attended a J! taping in 2014.

Was standing on the Grand Coulee Dam when news broke of Robin Williams death. It’s a very impressive structure. And made it back to Spokane in well under 2 hours.

I had heard of "A Whole New World" but knew very little beyond its existence.

I haven't read or watched anything or been anywhere.

Monet probably sounded right for some reason but also "all my life" made me reject Turner and van Gogh.

Tartans --> Scottish --> Carnegie --> Carnegie Mellon.

ETA: Not quite nowhere after all, as I have been to some art museums, including MOMA and the AI of Chi, so I must have the Seine covered.

A respectable if not great start to the season...I'm not too upset by my Renoir guess but I wish I'd gotten CMU. I was not a student but once was in a play there...I feel lucky to have guessed right on Fri. Not a big fan of modern Disney animation but I have plans to watch Encanto tonight.... Keeping up....:D
I have started Hunchback more than once... :roll: Charles Laughton as Quasimodo may be as far as I get. No need for another podcast, but I appreciate the reports, Mark.

No guess Thursday.

Never watched Cobra Kai, even though The Karate Kid was one of my first favorite movies.
Never read Hunchback or seen any adaptations of it.
I don't know if I've seen a Monet painting in person or not.
Never been to Carnegie Mellon.
I knew Aladdin was from 1992, which threw me a bit, but I also knew next was The Lion King in 1994 (and, just in case the song was released early, I would object to calling "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" a duet).
Never been to a Jeopardy! taping or listened to the podcast.
Oh, what has science wrought? I sought only to turn a man into a metal-encased juggernaut of destruction powered by the unknown properties of a mysterious living crystal. How could this have all gone wrong?

Never read Hunchback.
Thought the song was from BatB.
Am currently on S3 of Cobra Kai.
I can't say for certain that I have seen a Monet Seine painting, but I've been to 5 or 6 of the museums they're displayed at, so I'm fairly certain I've seen one of them.

Never read the book or seen the painting. I have been to Pittsburgh, don't know if I crossed through the campus. Haven't watched any of the TV show.

I have listened to every episode of the podcast but haven't been to a taping.

I thought Friday was from the Lion King but had no guess on an actual song.

Thanks to Mark for running this every week.

Nice start.

I've seen Water Lilies in person, and I [edit: no longer] think that counts as a Monet Seine painting. I've been to Pennsylvania but not Carnegie-Mellon. I've consumed no episodes of Cobra Kai or the J! podcast.

All downhill from here

Never seen Cobra Kai
Never read Hunchback (seen the Laughton movie)
Taking a wild stab that I've seen a Monet Seine painting; been to enough art museums on my trips that one of them is bound to have them, just never took a picture explicitly. (Don't think the water lilies count)
Never been to Pittsburgh
The best thing that Neil Armstrong ever did, was to let us all imagine we were him.

Good start to the new season.

I've started the fifth season of Cobra Kai but still have several episodes to go. I have to admit, when I first heard that Ralph Macchio and William Zabka were reviving their Karate Kid characters, I thought it was the dumbest, most desperate idea for a TV series — ever. But it's turned out to be an extremely enjoyable show!

On further investigation I agree, and I'll edit my post and change my vote.

Only Carnegie-Mellon tripped me up. Just couldn't get there. If I'd thought of it I might have gone with it in desperation but with no confidence. Yet in retrospect it makes sense.

If the clue had asked for "This dam with the most generation capacity of any U.S. power plant" I think I'd have said Hoover. But throw in Spokane and Grand Coulee is the obvious pivot. Turns out it's about three times as big as Hoover and has almost three times the generating capacity. Wow. (Used to be world's largest, but since 2009 Three Gorges Dam in China is. It's about three times the size of Grand Coulee so nine times the size of Hoover. Triple wow.) Something to remember.

Danzig = Gdansk is just one of those factoids I happen to know so no trouble there.

I majored in English at UCLA where the major required at least two classes in Shakespeare. So I recall plenty of talk about Plutarch's Lives as source material for the ancient plays as well as Holinshed's Chronicles as source material for the British royalty plays. Looks like Raphael Holinshed only makes one appearance in the archive, and it's in a clue that's basically asking who wrote Macbeth and King Lear. So I guess that's not a name you need to know.

We watched a couple of episodes of Cobra Kai and enjoyed them but didn't get hooked. I've owned a copy of The Hunchback of Notre Dame and started it several times but just couldn't get any traction. I think I eventually took it to the used book store to keep myself from trying again. I was in Paris in 1985 when the Musée d'Orsay was having a HUGE impressionist exhibit. They'd basically called in loans from all over the world from every museum that owned a Monet or Renoir or several other big names. It was glorious. While I cannot recall specifically seeing a Monet painting of the Seine in that viewing, it is a moral certainty that I did so.

I knew Aladdin was 1992 but I also knew the next Disney release, The Lion King, was 1994. So it had to be Aladdin. I also knew Aladdin was an end-of-year release, so it made sense if the song took a few weeks to chart and then hit number 1.

Never heard/seen a Jeopardy! podcast. Never been to a taping. Would enjoy doing the latter.

"Can You Feel The Love Tonight" on Friday
Blurted out Pliny instead of Plutarch

Have seen a few Monet pictures on rivers, assumed they were the Seine
Saw the first episode of Cobra Kai
Never read Hunchback, or visited Carnegie Mellon (or Pittsburgh) or the Jeopardy set or listened to the podcast.

I was going to set you straight, but you self-corrected. The water lily paintings were done in his garden in Giverny. While that is close to the Seine, the paintings were not done at the Seine.

I figured it must be Seine waters, and then looking it up I read that he diverted a branch of the river Epte for his garden.
