puzzle #48: blaze it

puzzle 48: blaze it
by adam nicolle // test-solved by paolo pasco

Happy normal day with no affiliations to weed in it nope absolutely none. I have a themed puzzle for y'all today, and I'm planning on posting a lot more of them to this blog. Maybe every week or so? We'll see what happens.

Few things:
  1. It was the one year anniversary of me starting up this blog again a few days ago. Thank for all for your kind words and support, it makes me want to do this sort of thing all the time.
  2. I'm performing comedy at the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament! All of my jokes will be about crosswords and the crossword community is going to watch me struggle to pull it off. Still, it'll be fun! (There's also an Easter egg of a part of my set in this puzzle, try to figure out what it is.)
Enjoy the puz!

puzzle #47: i've been accused of shoehorning my music taste into my crossword puzzles

puzzle 47: i've been accused of shoehorning my music taste into my crossword puzzles

It's AJR day and I'm excited. Their new album OK Orchestra dropped today and it's something I've anticipated for months. I'm tired as I'm writing this, but I just listened to it and I really like it. Here it is:

Without spoiling too much: this crossword's theme does require some basic knowledge of AJR, but it should be easy to google after if you're out of the loop. I couldn't resist the theme anyway. The puzzle itself should play easy-ish. Shout-out to Adam Aaronson for solving!

Enjoy the puz!
