Gambling card game crossword faded lyrics

Postby Kigalabar В» 04.10.2019


With such a tiny amount of inserted material, the theme answers were more challenging to uncover than they might have been otherwise, but that's just as it should be on a Wednesday. I didn't know skis in the Alps were any different from regular old downhill skis. The theme eats up a lot of ground 57 squares , and the theme answers are connected to a really high degree lots of Downs running through multiple theme answers.

This is the second day in a row where the grid has had a weird look to it - I often talk about the puzzle in terms of "quadrants," but it's hard to orient yourself that way in this puzzle, which has its black squares arranged in such a scattershot manner.

Nice change of pace. Theme answers: 17A: Singles bar habitue? Ma RT in character - what is "the old" S. The cast changes every year, so "the old" could be any S. I'm in love with a few of today's medium and long Downs. Quite the opposite. Every time I see people playing Texas Hold'em on TV, they aren't in a special room - they're sort of out in the open. And most casinos don't have special rooms for card-playing, do they?

Ah, Wikipedia, what would I do without you? A cardroom also spelled card room is a gambling establishment that exclusively offers card games for play by the public. The term poker room is generally synonymous, since the gambling games played in such establishments are typically, and sometimes exclusively, variations of poker such as Texas hold 'em.

Save And Share :. Not so. There are over Hey Rex. Alpine skis are synonymous with downhill skis and are in fact "a thing". The term is the opposite of cross country skis. The third theme answer is more than valid in my book. Learned Thanatos when I studied Attic Greek in high school.

Despite buying my first car with poker winnings, never played TX holdem. Nice puzzle, pretty easy for a Wednesday. Not sure what makes a puzzle click or not, but this one made me feel grumpy and dumb, maybe because I found myself backspacing over many first guesses "Ralph," like you, for "Polo name"; "Spade" for "Bogart role". Or maybe it's just because I had no idea what a "dirndl" or who a "Queeg" is. FYI - cross country skis as well as I think ski jumping are called nordic skis as opposed to the alpine skis.

The heel part of the boot is not attached to the skis. Also, I was afraid that 63A would ask for the character name of Georg Festrunk and I had no idea how to spell that I looked it up for this post. Wikipedia also mentions the Simpsons in the quotation: The tale of Punch and Judy varies from puppeteer to puppeteer and has changed over time, but the outline of early 19th century shows is usually still recognizable.

It typically involves Punch behaving outrageously, struggling with his wife Judy and the Baby, and then triumphing in a series of encounters with the forces of law and order and often the supernatural. The classic ending of the show has him upending the Devil himself, exclaiming "Huzzah huzzah, I've killed the Devil! All is performed in the spirit of outrageous comedy and is intended to provoke shocked laughter.

The stereotypical view of Punch casts him as a deformed, child-murdering, wife-beating psychopath who commits appalling acts of violence and cruelty upon all those around him and escapes scot-free — this is greatly enjoyed by small children. Terry Pratchett draws attention to this apparent paradox in his short story Theatre of Cruelty, the last line of which is "That's not the way to do it. The very stick he uses is a slapstick: the knockabout device which gave its name to a whole genre of broad physical comedy.

While censorious Political Correctness threatened Punch and Judy performances in the UK and other English speaking countries for a time, the show is having one of its cyclical recurrences and can now be seen not only in England, Wales, and Ireland, but also in Canada, the United States including Puerto Rico and even Australia and South Africa see External Links.

This is probably a bad idea. Thanatos wasn't such a bad guy. He accompanied many fallen Greek heroes to Hades where his brother Chanon rowed the boat to their specially appointed place called the Elysium Fields.

We had that as an answer recently. His brother Hypnos is playing a larger role in my life these days. He represents sleep. Loved today's puzzle.

Comes from the same root that gives us Euthanasia, "good death" or "dying well. Solid puzzle all around. I'm with jls re. Had opera DIVA for far too long, which turned the puzzle into a medium for me, too.

Since no one has stopped in to say it yet, Wolfgang PAULI is one of the great fathers of quantum mechanics, at least as famous ok, maybe only to us physicists? Re the grid: I wouldn't call it weird at all. It has perfect degree rotational symmetry -- spinning on the black square at the very middle. As one who spends a disturbing amount of time in cardrooms, I can assure you, Rex, that casinos do, in fact, have special rooms for card-playing.

After getting "Rent" for 6 down, I wrote "Loren" for Polo name, and it took me way too long to find the mistake. The show has had its highs and lows over the years, but with the truly, truly funny women there now Kristin Wiig and Amy Poehler , I consider this year one of the highs.

Lots of SNL clips on hulu. I liked this puzzle too -- and it answers yesterday's question as to whether you need to choose between having a theme going and having interesting fill: you can have both! Oh well.

I also knew CIN for Reds since it was in a puzzle lately. Amusing comment from Rex, needing to choose a diva from Callas or Sills: both great, but how about another favorite -- Kiri Te Kanawa?

Word and literature fanatics will probably want to read all of Fforde. Virtually all crossword puzzles have degree rotational symmetry. Pretty easy Wednesday. I finished the puzzle and didn't bother to spend any time figuring out the theme.

Re card room: When you watch poker on television the players are, indeed, in a card room. It's just a really, really big card room. Awesome books. Addie Loggins, no substitute for the video, but the transcript is here. Erwin Schroedinger? I just assume that physicist first names I don't know are Max.

Actually, my mind was somehow off the whole time. My thought while doing the puzzle was that the theme was "weird phrases with RT in them"--never noticed that the phrases worked without the RT, too, which they sorta cover in Pun Themes For all of the bibliophiles out there Fforde's novels will tickle you in the most surprising ways.

Two Ponies Where's wade today? Nice puzzle. No complaints. Snappy fill in all directions and fun theme answers, especially the top two. Liked the grid and all the clues, as well. I tore through and loved McEwan's Atonement and Saturday when they were first published, and recommend them even if you've seen the film Atonement. This one was easier for me than Wednesdays usually are. Maybe I'm getting better at solving. I was happy to find the Punch clue--I've been working up a Punch and Judy show, and have even learned to use a swazzle.

Isn't that a lovely word? I'm also a ffan of Fforde. Not because the title looked like a typo at first, but because I saw where the plot was headed and decided not to accompany it. Just wasn't in the mood that day. Great writer in my unabbreviated opinion. Yeah: Fforde fans here too. This is a great. Tuesday Next woo woo.

Seeing a lot of WOOing in the puzzles. Must be the impact of spring which by the by has finally come to Mpls. We learned about Thantos in psychology school. Rex, the O'Reilley clip is disturbing. Perhaps we should make him eat a Banana Slug. Seconding rm above, Pauli was the guy who realized that no two electrons in a given atom could have the same quantum states. Sounds complicated, is complicated, yet super important. If you ever hear of electron "spin", that's Pauli in good part. You taught me Comics man!

Pauli has the Reeperbahn, a red light district that used to be legendary with sailors would wear a dirndl is one of the mysteries of the universe I probably will never be able to solve. The late night up must have alleviated my jet lag; after five hours of sleep, I felt great Saturday morning -- games games poker intersection puzzle 2, which Crosswrd turned in after about 15 minutes with many guessed and wrong letters in the upper right. Must be the impact of spring which by the by has finally come to Mpls. Fun, friendly gambling, especially home poker, go hand in hand with BBQs and other grill parties.
