Re: Wednesday, June 6, 2012 Game Recap & Discussion (SPOILERS)

My third grade self, who could name all the presidents in order along with their names, is ashamed of me for blowing that FJ.

I'm a huge baseball nerd, and I was irrationally hoping for stuff like WHIP, VORP, WARP3, and WHOOPS. Yes, these are all real stats.

Well I got murdered on this game, although Lucille Ball was a headslapper FJ for me. Did well on altars and chairs, horrible at most other things.

Man, Alex kinda rubbed it in on the missed Shaker Heights DD, huh?

1) I had never even heard of a Carolingian. I would have gotten murdered on this board.

Seeing as they tape weeks in advance, not likely.

I just had my audition today - an easy board will make me feel better about my chances of getting on.

Instagot FJ, but did not do nearly as well on the boards. I got a C in algebra back in tenth grade you Jeopardy Jerks!

Les Paul played a weekly show here in NYC until right before he died, I think that helped me remember.

Re: Ask Me Another

NPR shows don't have big budgets, especially when they're brand new. If a ringing bell can do the job for cheap, they'll use it. I think the show's biggest expense it its light-up APPLAUSE signs. I attended a taping of this show in Brooklyn back in February. My thoughts: -the show is genuinely funny...

Would not have gotten FJ in a million years.

I"m rooting for everyone except Joel because I hate real estate developers.

Lewis Black is an extremely acerbic comedian. It's kinda his thing.

Total buzzer dominance for Chuck. Can't believe NOBODY got the FJ.

DCist visits the Power Players set, dubs Alex "weird"

Washington, DC local blog DCist visited the Jeopardy Power Players set and had some interesting things to say. http://dcist.com/2012/05/getting_weird_with_alex_trebek_as_j.php Despite his deep closet, Trebek is not vain like Zimmerman, the pushy publicist. He can still crack wise after, or maybe bec...

Re: Audition Emails

Someone who didn't fare well on the written test at audition, unless s/he has a photographic memory and can recite all the clues and then go check them, won't know whether s/he got a 30 or a 35. At at least some auditions they have told people whether they passed the written test. I though they did...

Reminds me of when I saw Season 1 episodes on YouTube. They applauded after EVERY clue back then.
I think they were just applauding for local sports teams.
