6 days later, still not working. I can d/l the puzzle directly via a browser but cannot access it with the Crossword Light iPad app. All other puzzles offered in the same section download fine. Is it possible that the LA Times does not accept a 3rd party link?

THEME:   none with 36 blocks, which seems too many for a themeless
   
GOOD ONES:    
Party person  POL [I thought some "fun guy"]   
Words before a subject   IN RE [I thought grammar, then caste]   
Frame in a photo lab   CROP [I thought noun]   
Its arrival is often celebrated in ritual   MANHOOD [I thought seasons]   
   
BTW:   
APER is not a real word.   
   
This was a tough one which (going out on a Lim) I imagine tripped up many.   
   
   
RATING:    ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun

THEME:   F substituted for TH in popular phrases creating odd ones
   
GOOD ONES:    
I'm a somewhat abashed sucker for puns, so I loved them all.   
Short life story   BIO   
Willing cohort?   ABLE ["willing and able"]   
   
BTW:   
I don't see how BLADES are "Supporters of STARS ON ICE."   
   
Some  toughies today: Sibelius' SWAN (not Swan Lake); AEROballistic (not ANTI); "Hei-tiki wearers"; EZRA Cornell; "Citizen of Little Salem, Colorado"; AL DAVIS

General Discussion / Re: Is "ACERATE' a good word for a themeless?
« Last post by brasarehot on March 27, 2014, 08:06:47 PM »
It seems like an uncommon word to me. I wouldn't use it. A themeless puzzle should contain familiar words but very tricky clues.

THEME:   phrases containing EDEN, but not as its own word
   
GOOD ONES:    
Classic children's novel {& theme}   THE SECRET GARDEN   
Mad man?   ALFRED E. NEUMAN   
Auction ending?   EER   
Helpful tip for a puzzle solver?   ERASER [tip of the pencil]   
Leaves in a bag   TEA   [not the verb]
   
BTW:   
"ANON, the dreadful thunder…" from Hamlet is right up there with "What, ho!" as a memorable quotation.   
   
Kubrick's out-of control computer   HAL [if you wanted to use The Bard, "Shakespearean prince" would have served]   
   
"Hold your horses, I'm coming"   IN A SEC [the clue indicates impatience; the answer means and suggests only soon]   
   
"Rockin' Robin" chorus word   TWEET [embarrassed to say that I knew that, but I had successfully blocked it from memory till now]    
   
   
RATING:    ;D ;D
