Re: LL82: LearnedLeague

Given all the clues in the question about Van Doren, how did that only play 14%? I completely whiffed. It certainly made sense in retrospect, but my brain just didn't take me there. Same here. The 1991 publication date certainly didn't point me to Senate testimony from 1959 and I didn't recall from...

Re: TD 429 - All Music (Second Quarter Standings Revealed)

I've been around TD's long enough to not get too annoyed when what I think is a really good answer turns out to be a (mega-)sheep. But "Marty Robbins".... really? Of course that was still better than the other "really good answer" I considered: Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra, who had a pretty big c...

Re: Buzzer Timing - Anticipate or Wait?

For my two games I was lights only both times. I was comfortable with speed reading the clue and concentrating on the edge of the board for the lights without having to follow along with Alex reading the clue. Prior to Alex completing the clue I was able to take in the ending of the clue and be rea...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

On the Mythology one, I rejected sorority and tried to make Pleiades work with 9 instead of seven sisters. Of course there are only 6 stars in the Pleiades noticeably brighter than the others. And those 6 stars form the symbol for what auto manufacturer? Subaru, which IIRC means Pleiades in Japanes...

Re: LL81: LearnedLeague

For me, poutine fell into the category of "what else could it be?" I first saw it on a menu about 20 years ago in a Toronto bar. By then, the Quebecois comfort food had gained a following in English Canada. I'm not competing this season, only following, but I also figured WECIB, given the Québec re...

Yes, Maria Ouspenskaya was a Russian-born dance and acting teacher, and also a character actress, often playing an older "Madame" somebody in classic films, but she is arguably best remembered as the old gypsy woman Maleva in The Wolf Man and in the sequel Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man . http://pe...

Re: LL80: LearnedLeague

I thought I had a pretty good shot at a rare (for me) six pack, but I stupidly wrote cigna instead of cignus and changed my mind for no good reason from Warhol, who I thought of immediately and confidently, to John Cage, and my six pack became a 4 (4) 5 (3) loss. There's a lesson there, third or fo...
