Sun., 9/13 Anton Shurpik
« on: September 13, 2015, 09:40:49 AM »
THEME:   two-word phrases both of which can be names of media personalities
I enjoyed each combination, especially the unlikely pairings.   
Passing remarks?   OBIT   
It could be a lot   ACRE   
Winter air   CAROL   
Good ones have straight faces   LIARS ["There’s no art to find the mind’s construction in the face."]   
Pens and needles  STYLI   
In the past, in the past   ERST   
Big club   ACE [in most games]   
Big ape   KONG ["Have you ever heard of…Kong?" is a favorite line in the original movie]   
Rap sheet listing   PRIOR [from my vast knowledge of police procedure (only from NYPD Blue) it was "priors"]   
Spot on a board   SEAT [ took me awhile to realize the board is a committee]   
Nae like a bairn   AULD [My Scottish is weak, but I know nae=no; bairn=child; auld=old.  Maybe nae also means not.  Anyway, this entry is nae guid as it is not used in English.]   
Rodin's thinker?  [notice lower case T: if you must use TETE, this is clever; but generally its use gives me mal a la tete]   
"I've Got a Crush On You" is from the 1920's or thereabouts.  Raise your hand if you know this song.  Raise your other hand if you like it. (2 hands for me)   
Droll acknowledgement of a weak joke   HA HA [droll=humorous or odd reaction; HA HA is neither]

Wonder if Anton Shurpik is a real name.   
RATING:    ;D ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
