RNETD = TREND

GULEN = LUNGE

TAGEEN = NEGATE

TIRRAY = RARITY

CARTOON ANSWER:

IN 1927, GOING TO SEE “THE JAZZ SINGER” IN A THEATER WAS A —

TELETERAR = “REEL” TREAT

Good morning everyone and happy Tuesday!  I thought the clue words were tough yesterday, but after seeing today’s, I’ve changed my mind.  NEGATE was the most difficult of the bunch, followed by RARITY at a close second.  After self-jumbling the letters on my trusty notepad, I was able to figure them out and moved right along to the cartoon puzzle.  I didn’t run into any roadblocks and came up with the solution REEL quick.  Jeff’s drawing was spot-on, giving us a wonderful scene of people in their finery both coming and going to a picture show in front of an ornate theater.  You can almost feel the hustle and bustle of the couple’s passing by and if you listen closely, I imagine you’d hear them discuss in hushed tones the amazing “talking picture” they just witnessed.  My favorite detail though was the poster in the background advertising Fritz Lang’s “METROPOLIS”.  It still blows my mind that Jeff can fit so much detail into such a tiny cartoon.  Enjoy the day and I’ll see you tomorrow!  πŸ˜€πŸ“½

  1. Good morning, Mike, good morning everyone. Being National Pet Day, I figured an animal related puzzle, but…The Roaring 20’s! How fascinating was that decade? The music, the clothes, the hairdos…(not so much the women’s shoes, too many T-straps, IMO). Fellow shoe lover, Betty, what do you think? Easy breezy solve today. Two quick blink of the eye words. LUNGE, because I saw GLUE, and NEGATE, because I saw AGENT. (I find that these “first look word in a word” happenings cause me to pause a second; Let it go, let it go)! Immediate recovery; zipped through the rest of the puzzle. I REELy loved the answer! In the cartoon, the man saying, “Who’d a thought”? HA…I thought only we Brooklyn natives spoke like that! And, Mike, did you note the poster on the left of the cartoon? Preview of the 1927 movie, “Metropolis”, by Fritz Lang? Mr. Knurek, care to share? A vintage sci-fi fan perhaps? We hit 75 y’day, threatening us with 80 today! Prompting me to already hum…”Hot time, summer in the city”…(anyone)? Wishing us all a terrific Tuesday. πŸ™‹πŸ»

    • I caught the poster, Angela! Such a fantastic detail that really added to the feel of Jeff’s drawing. I have all the windows open (even though it’s a bit chilly) and am hearing the seagulls squawk and can smell the scent of the ocean. It’s really starting to feel like spring and I don’t feel “trapped” inside as I did all winter. Enjoy the day. πŸ™‚

      • Mike, LOL, Our posts are crossing one another. Read below, you’ll see. Same here, Windows and doors all opened since 6AM,; it’s already 64 here. But I got the robins and wrens, no seagulls. The ocean? Do you live water front? That’s fantastic! Have a great day! πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • Hey Steve. “Who’d a thunk it”?! Now THAT’S old time Brooklyn! Like the 30s-50s. (Sounds like the Bowery Boys too, right)? I believe after that we acquired a little more culture…And then we went to the “Who’d a thought”! LOL…Have a great day! πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • More culture, Angela? I remember a New York comic telling Terry Gross that the neighborhoid he grew up in, Park Slope, was “now a Swiss village”.

      • Hey Steve, so many posts, so little time….! HA.! Ok, Maybe not in order, but…First, without hearing your inflection, did you mean, “more culture”? like Brooklyn didn’t have ANY (ouch), or “more culture” like ok, more culture? Don’t forget, that Tree grew in Brookkyn, that mighty Tree! And I don’t know how long ago this comic spoke to Ms Gross, but, yes, Brooklyn has radically changed. A lot for the better, some for not. Life’s a crap shoot. But, Brooklyn can truly warm your soul, trust me. Next, I would have loved your response to the Lovin’ Spoonful! Such a great song. (I did a “Monday, Monday y’day, but no one bit; probably thought I couldn’t type)! LOL. And, again if you weren’t being facetious, (note: big word here, Brookkyn educated), you can always add value to my posts. I welcome it, I feel we all add to one another’s posts. So, thank you. And lastly, neighborhoid? A fine example of a Freudian slip! And very apropos to the post! Kudos either way! I have to say, I really appreciate your wit, but not knowing a person, you wonder about that fine, fine line where it tends to cross over into….
        So, in conclusion, (ad nauseam)?…Steve? Were you making fun of Brooklyn? Wishing you a great (Ruby) Tuesday…πŸ™‹πŸ»πŸ˜€

  2. Good morning. Today’s puzzle was a real treat. Negate was the last word I got. The cartoon answer was also fun. Had “rare” first then,when the other word was not there I substituted rare for reel and it all rolled into place. Just like goldilocks and the three bears ,it wasn’t too hard or easy. It was “Just Right”. Till tomorrow stay well.

    • Good morning, Harry. You and Paul both went with Goldilocks this morning! Good call! So Hoosier talk? Not just Brooklyn? Who knew? And as for RARITY, fear not. Look at it! It’s one of those words that look weird even spelt correctly! IMO. Have a great day! πŸ™‹πŸ»

  3. Hey Mike, good morning again. I wrote my comment as soon as I finished the puzzle this morning, and just hit to post, when your email came in, so my question regarding the preview is moot. I loved it. And yes, the graphics are amazing .

  4. Great puzzle today. I paused on negate and rarity and agree it looks weird even spelled correctly. My puzzle is in color but can’t see the poster you’re referring too. I loved the women’s clothes in the 20’s but like you
    Angela, not so much the shoes. We’re due for showers here in San Francisco. For the next couple of days. Have a happy day everyone.

    • Hi Betty. Yes, rarity is an odd looking word. The ’20s seemed so exciting, right? Except those shoes, although the men’s shoes were dashing! And when you look at pictures of the women dressed up, IMO, the shoes kill the outfits. Never a fan of the T-strap. Skinny ankles! LOL How about the gloves and the long cigarette holders? Such elegance! Betty, the only way to see the poster, and all the minute details for that matter, is to look at the cartoon on line. I could use my glasses and a magnifier and still not see it in the paper otherwise. Sorry you’re having rain, although I think you could use it out there, right? It’s 83 here now, I feel too much, too soon. Have a great day! πŸ™‹πŸ» PS, I very much enjoy reading your posts

    • Hi Clay. I don’t know the poster well, just familiar with the film maker. And we’re only seeing the poster because we went on line and magnified the cartoon. Even doing that, it’s still only half a picture, but you can actually see Lang’s name. Hope you have a great day! πŸ™‹πŸ»

      • Hey Steve, thank you. πŸ‘πŸ» I never thought mean at all, just wasn’t sure how to “read” it. That’s always the problem with texts, the lack of inflection. And as I said before, by not knowing a person, you can’t measure the levity. Didja’ (a nod to Brooklyn) notice I spelled Brooklyn as Brookkyn! So much for boasting about that education, huh? Classic, “Don’t spit up in the air”.!! Another phrase we don’t hear much anymore. Cheers to you also! 🍷Have a great night! πŸ™‹πŸ»

  5. Hi! For some reason or other I use the word “negate” a lot so knew it instantly but RARITY was another matter. How I got it will take longer to tell than it took me to do it. I looked at my answer “Reel Thing” and said, “No, wrong letters.” Changed it to “Reel Event” and again, “Wrong letters.” Then “Reel Treat” gave me the letters I needed for RARITY. Done!!
    Mike, you are making me hungry for steak tips. You made them for the game and now again yesterday and they are sounding delicious because you are such a good cook. The only time I ever tried to cook them, they were tough.
    Angela, after hearing you mention some of the yummy ingredients going into your pizza making, I will be surprised if I don’t order a pizza for lunch or dinner today. Our two daughters & I used to have fun cooking together. Now they are grown & cook with their 3 youngest ones who aren’t grown & gone yet, but my husband & I can turn out a pretty good meal together.
    Enjoy your day!! See you tomorrow.

    • Hi Lelia, how’re you feeling? I think I may have taken for granted my referencing the food prep y’day. We weren’t making pizza, we were doing pies that we bake mostly only at Easter. They’re called Pizza Gaina, Pizza Rustica and Pizza Grain. (I think I may be mixing the English and Italian in here, not sure)! I don’t speak Italian very well at all! Not sure why we preface with Pizza, either. I have to ask. They’re grain pies and “insanely unhealthy” meat pies! LOL…so many eggs, and the meat pies contain so many different meats and cheeses, the salt is ridiculous! ..I just happened to be cutting only 3 ingredients at the time I posted, but the list is endless! I think I may have joked that you can hear your arteries closing as you’re eating! It’s very time consuming and unfortunately with today’s prices, very expensive. Just today, in an Italian speciality shop near me, I saw slices being sold for $21. each! Slices! It’s gotten out of hand! LOL…So between that, and the health angle, my family ONLY makes it for Easter. And believe me, that’s enough! But, oh my God, Lelia,they’re sooooo delicious! Decadent comes to mind. Im pretty sure the tradition symbolizes the ending of fasting for Lent, so it’s overindulgence I guess. Hog wild is more like it!( Now that’s an expression you don’t hear every day)! And here’s the kicker, it’s part of the appetizers! We’re starting the manicotti and lasagna prep on Thursday! It’s really a lot to digest….(pun intended). As for pizza, I personally don’t make my own, my cousins do. I much rather have it delivered! I truly miss cooking with my Mother, πŸ’” I lost her recently, and it’s devastating. She was my best friend and confidant. (My family all tell me that this is why I talk so much, because I don’t have her to talk with anymore)! HA.. Probably right! And on that note….Hope you enjoy the rest of your day, and have a great night! πŸ™‹πŸ»
