THEME:   none, but four triples
   
GOOD ONES:     
Reminder of an old flame?   ASH   
Turns red, perhaps   DYES   
   
BTW:   
"Yeah, whatevs"   I BET ["I bet" suggests disbelief; "whatever" suggests apathy]   
   
Considerable   IMMENSE [immense = huge; considerable = not small]   
   
ASADA: see what happens when foreign terms are allowed, we get adjectives totally foreign to English.   
   
I liked that TUPAC sat atop IRINA: rap vs. modern drama   
   
   
RATING:    ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun

IBET has appeared in quite a few puzzles recently. And is ASH really a reminder of an old flame? Technically, perhaps---but ash is the remains of what was burned by the flame.

Yesterday's crossword contained seven foreign words. Today's also has seven foreign words: ADIEUX, ASADA, COSI, ENTRE, ECU, ETAL and SIMPATICO. What would puzzle makers do if there was an "English only" rule?

One of the answers was INMAN, a name I had to look up. Confederate soldier W.P. Inman was a character in Charles Frazier's novel Cold Mountain. Jude Law portrayed the character in the 2003 movie adaptation. I was familiar with country singers Autry Inman and Jerry Inman, so now I know three Inmans...just in case anyone ever asks me to name three Inmans.
