The I note, it's next to the H Sharp. But I was flummoxed in the NW because I didn’t get the EFLAT (thought it was just E) and spent a lot of time trying to figure out how DEED had anything to do with a balloon. Dear me.Lady Di. Misplaced trust in the integrity of the NYT crossword universe. If you thought yesterday’s clue for “ere” was arcane, how much more “hey, it’s just some crosswordese so guess” can you get than “city with a marina.” If the most you got for cluing potential is that you have a marina then, boy howdy, you are not a tourist destination. Wrong. What is the critical campaign it's referring to? The assumed Akkadian origin of the month is Šabātu meaning strike that refers to the heavy rains of the season.
Always an amusing bit: The Ninth is, arguably, the loudest, and certainly the longest, of the symphonies; thus the title of CHORAL, which is not by nature a loud piece of music, is a tad ironic. Clever and funny theme and some wonderful misdirection and word play.
But I'm quite sure I don't have relative pitch, alas.If you play me a G and ask me to sing an E flat, I can't. SANCTA?
Treat it that way, NYT. moment after I solved it and I thought there would be more rebuses (rebi?)
93, you'll see right after that, three circles which spell SKI in an upSLOPE.84A-Multi-episode narrative is STORY ARC, if you go to Square No.
I figured Rex would be all over this one for the tepid phrases and awkward attempts to be funny. Barry Sims, the former 49ers and Raiders offensive lineman, recalled the fear of being trapped underneath an avalanche of humanity.“What went through my mind was: ‘Oh my god, I’m stuck!’ ” Sims said. ), I finished this puzzle quite handily. I did eventually connect the dots but there are many other SHAPES I could have drawn.
Maybe that’s just being a snob about it, I don’t know , @ Z 9:23 PM – Well put!
It’s not WAC, it’s VAC, as in vacuum cleaner.
Even after drawing the "ship", I was scratching my head.
Here’s his Dock Ellis song... https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=wg9DXRP4Ywo. For heaven's sake -- Please consider double-checking before deciding to pontificate on stuff -- Despite the fact he was born in Bonn and so forth and so on, it's unequivocally Ludwig van Beethoven.
M&A *can* draw a BEER (HAT).Masked & Anonym007Us**gruntz**.
HEART BRO KEN was my favorite.The clue for SUCH AS threw me. Annoying. I did give "school rally" the side eye at first, but I'll give the benefit of the doubt, as I really liked the theme of the puzzle, and besides, technically, a "pep rally" is a "school rally", after all is said and done.
Our friend ACLU shows up after spirited discourse yesterday and I like seeing BUNKER HILL any time. Maybe now and then. I did not enjoy this one very muchvoileksecuritystonwtro whatever. Throwing a single one in, especially when one of the crosses is a trivia answer like "what are these notes," is just tacky and obscurantist. (I was a scaredy puss in my youth.) Some of Google's "school rally" hits pertained to other than sporting events. I presently have a 28 foot sloop-rigged sailboat. I was done in just a few minutes. The connected letters spelled out the French caption. @rooMartha Stewart Weddings & Brides are both magazines. clue answers are startin to feel a lot more self-respect.Thanx for the fun, Mr. DiPietroMasked & Anonym8Us. I don’t mind not knowing a word (actually I do, but I know it’s fair), but I got tired of feeling gypped.
Even if my times are generally 3-4x.
But, still had a DNF.
Gal who thinks bras should be illegal.3. I've eaten a lot of noodle soup in my life, and some of it was alphabet soup. Granted, still probably obscure out of the NYC Metro area, although we have seen RYE clued as the town a few times in the NYT. Thanks for the hilarious vid, Rex. I asked to see the video that had been made and could only watch the very beginning. Hell, even “city with a famous marina” would have been better, even though “famous” is a stretch.
No snap. I had no idea what "released air from a balloon" could possibly be when I had D?ED. Agree 100%. 48A-Winter vacation destination is SKISLOPE, and if you go to Square No.
WAs more fun than any for a long time.
After all, "oapayas" aren't a fruit. @Nancy – sightreading and a sense of relative pitch kind of go hand in hand, with singing at least. So ran into Rex's brain ELIDE on the E. Then, for 70A, figuring in the rebus square of its symmetrical entry, put in FFFFLAT, thinking there has to be another rebus square.
This was just fine as a themeless puzzle. JFK really said "Ich bin ein Berliner" and a Berliner really is a jelly donut.To what degree Germans understood and appreciated his remark, and to what degree they thought he was a fool for having said what he said without proper research, is more under dispute. @Pablo I loved seeing OGEE too.
:):). I texted several before I began to “cry foul” and am backed up to the hilt that SHEvAT is correct. Needed my "with-see whiplash" neck brace to continue safely and responsibly.
That's why. "Tip of Italy" for EURO: EURO (singular) doesn't really work as an answer for "tip" in my opinion. Just gonna rate and run.
But I cannot defend him through this "grid art" nonsense that seems to be an entirely new wrinkle of the NYT.
Ok, I accept Slue.
But I never expected only a one-clue rebus so the whole time I was living in fear that the puzzle-maker somehow didn't realize there was a difference between E and E-flat.
It follows the same numbering conventions as a regular crossword, and the numbering is the main thing that helps you figure out the diagram, via process of deduction.Typically there's a theme, but the fill is relatively easy.
If you run negative on an intradermal T.B. The show is engrossing and radically different than the old TV series.
But, I doubt it. And yes, you're right about this: whatever note one starts on, I can sing the note an octave below or above every time -- effortlessly.
Ships are big - cruise ships and cargo ships, for example. After all, this is only the movie.
The word town is a square which forms the rudder, the word ski is a slope which forms the bowsprit.
@Gill I. from yesterdayYou said about having an avatar: "Make[s] it easier...to pick you out of a line up."
Isn't there a better way to clue this? (Penn, class of 19**).I did have to cheat once by using the web to find the score for Beethoven’s 5th (although I totally missed the fact that the E is flatted! @Joe D and @egs -- I didn't see Joe's challenge to me before I wrote my comment; in fact I didn't see it until just now. Oh...sorry. So I says to myself, "Self", I said, "Why don't you walk right over to the piano and play GGGE, and see if it works?"
I get that "circled letters" can be found inside the TRIANGLE, LINE, ARC, SQUARE and SLOPE drawings, but the reveal is SHIP SHAPE and only SQUARE and TRIANGLE are SHAPES. the on-line dictionary agrees.
A nice mix. To call INDIRA Gandhis "one of the Gandhis" is, while, technically true because she acquired that name by marriage, is a super-duper stretch for a couple of reasons.First, she was a Nehru, the daughter of Jarwaharlal Nehru, India's first Prime Minister.
I think I am clueless as to what the solving time has to do with the quality of the puzzle. !I helped myself by ignoring the theme during the solve and shot myself in the foot by trying to follow it afterward. To @Nancy's cheat method from yesterday: only when truly stumped and after multiple stare-downs, I turn first to physical books in the house.
BURY-THE-HAT CHET (23A: ... the guy who vows to take his Stetson to the grave), HEART BRO KEN (33A: ... the fraternity guy who wants to be a cardiologist), SHORT-SIGH TED (51A: ... the guy who barely shows he's exasperated), POP-IN JAY (56A: ... the guy who always shows up unannounced), WHAT-A-DIS GRACE (70A: ... the gal who delivered the greatest put-down ever), DRONE DON (86A: ... the guy who takes aerial photos for the military), GROUND NUT MEG (91A: ... the gal who loses it when pass plays are called), ROLLERS KATE (108A: ... the gal who spends all day at the hairdresser), FORT LAUDER DALE (121A: ... the guy who can't stop bragging about Bragg). @JD: I didn’t like Pivot/SLUE either but if you look up the definitions it’s passable.
were musical notes and we started going “duh duh duh DUHHHH, duh duh duh DUHHHH.” FFFD seemed right for the second phrase, so GGGE must be the first one, but DEED? thx, David! My wife Jane and I both were flummoxed by the isolated rebus. The "Shebat" / "Shevat"debate is interesting in more ways than one.
Oops. I would say, *other.
This was a super fun Sunday puzzle where (to me, at least), every themer was a groaner and a keeper and a joy.
Does that sound familiar? As burtonkd said, there are "mnemonics" that can be used to memorize the sound of a specific interval. Smooth sailin.
I'll try to bow out now.
I'm sure you could develop it. I mean who doesn't like an elephant joke? 92, you'll find STORY in five circled squares that form an ARC that is the rounded base of the ship. It’s a title. @Barbara S. 11:22 – The Magritte puzzle you're thinking of was by Andrew Zhou and ran 9/23/2018.
AHA...SMIT...that's it. "And, of course, the eternal "About" quandary: is it AS TO or INRE?But nits aside, any puzzle that inspires @Rex to post Beethoven According To Peanuts can't be all bad. Hand up for having AL-HA in place and wondering how ALoHA worked followed quickly by the D’Oh slap.
Some of the crossword heavyweights, such as Patrick Berry, seemed to have ventured into that world. Now I have "Oh My PAPAYA" careening through my head. Also, if you don't like drawing, don't.
BOZ I think is s nickname for an older footballer, no? Unfortunately, but the time I had written in all the answers, I couldn't find most of the circled letters (I know, I should have written more neatly, but there it is). On the Haverwerf by the River Dijle, there is a statue of both Lodewijk and Ludwig as a young boy. I did like the App connecting the dots for me. It's very handy.Anyway, sing your heart out.
I'm still looking for ADIT and ATLE, by the way.
Since when is a slope or an arc a "shape?" How about simple variety?
I puzzled my way around the grid like Georges Seurat. Voice for multi episode narrative. My favorite part of this was seeing OGEE again. Same nits as others: symphonic just sounds stupid, they’re symphonies.
)None of the theme answers elicited a real laugh, or even groan, but taken all together, I thought it was a fine Sunday puzzle.Favorite clue-answer pair: 73D's "Shade for a field worker?" (You might want to take note of that for your future solving efforts.) But the pros, wow. I guessed GGGE for the first four and the FFFD for the last four seemed to confirm that. And the little feet pitter patter.
