Ham It Up Crossword Clue 7 Letters
Ham It Up Crossword Clue 7 Letters – Our theme is phrases that have the first three letters or the last three letters [record style]. These letters are separated from the rest of the theme answers by blocks, hence the title. We get one of these types of puzzles every couple of months from Mike Schenck, so if you’ve been following him, this one shouldn’t be too surprising.
I don’t find the impact to be as strong as others in the series, mainly because the title sounds bad. There’s no “breaking a record” here, the theme answers the genre of music “breaking off,” but it doesn’t sound like the same thing.

Other antagonists in the grid are “Hate me? [“Are you really upset that I did that?”] which doesn’t sound like a two-word phrase I’ve ever heard anyone say, and the crossing of LuPone [Tony winner as Eva Peron] with the French POIS and unusual PETARD [old bomb]. I should be able to figure it out, but based on LUP___, I went with Lupino and didn’t question it. Thus I ended up with PIIS and POTARD in my grid which seemed odd but was within the realm of possibilities. With such extraordinary crossings, I’d say it’s more than fair to put a “stripe” in the LUPONE key, giving us solvers a fighting chance. Sea Dove [Little Oak] is also in the corner which adds to the blur.

Eva Peron’s cross-reference in the Lupon key) has long downs, both very nice. Lily Tomlin [2003 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor Winner], the colorful “BANZAI!” And also enjoyed watching the dancing hippos
As for clues, I’ll note 1d [record label?], but confusingly, that has nothing to do with the theme. The answer is most, indicating that it refers to Guinness-type records.
This one just didn’t do as much for me, as it felt looser than previous incarnations, and the fill wasn’t there to provide shine. 3.3 stars.
This was a satisfying collab puzzle from Jacob Jonas and Eric Agard. Completely satisfactory to resolve. Here’s what’s happening:

In each theme response the RE is repositioned, creating a new phrase. Once the REs are in their rightful places we get Bad, In Red, Created and Compadre.
This was beautiful, and cleverly executed. I wasn’t familiar with the TAKE SIGN before, but the crossings were clear and it definitely had to be backed up.
A wonderful debut puzzle here so curiously lost! I can only assume this was a recent submission, as this is definitely from March, and would be a wonderful way to start or end it.
While I wish all theme answers had the zippiness of BE THAT WAY! (That entry is also great for “hiding” the name of the March sister), I thoroughly enjoyed the cleverness of this puzzle. It didn’t bother me in the slightest that I needed every crossing to the AMYGDALA (but I knew the limbic system!). The clue for JOE JONAS pissed me off a little because it suggests we should only consider entering the first name [*Kevin and Nick’s musical brother].

At 80 words, there isn’t much room for longer live entries. When the word count is this high, the theme better be worth it, and this one definitely is!
4.2 stars from me! I really wish it was put right, though. A “pat on the back” in the revealer clue would have felt good back in March… it seems a little too self-congratulatory now.
I have seen numerous versions of the “deep word” theme. Here, the yellow entries are shown as if they have an invisible “golden” in front of them, as declared by Kingmidas. An important touch, for me, is that the links only work with Golden. Links to BUZZER and PARACHUTE satisfy it; ARCHES and chance, of sorts. The key for ANNIVERSARY requires some kind of [50-year] in the key so it cannot satisfy ANNIVERSARY as well.
Not knowing HOMEBOY as a sign (a rare local sign for the LA Times) made the intersection with NOS (which could be NRS) and HALAS (LALAS is association football players…) quite difficult. Did anyone else struggle with those letters?

Hello there, again! Here’s hoping you’re all safe and ready for a weekend that might not feel like a weekend at all.
Today’s grid has a nice little gimmick, as the first, third, fifth, and seventh boxes in each theme entry are circled. When filled, those letters in the odd-numbered boxes spell out the man’s name.
Just a few days ago, I thought about the number of different words used to describe prison (“can” and “hoosego” are my personal favorites), so it was very timely to look up POKEY (5A: [The can]). While that was fun to think about, what’s not fun right now is the number of The EPOCH Times ads that are shown before a number of YouTube videos (25D: [Geological Span]). Oh! The only real hangup was when I put in the masculine “nuevo” instead of NUEVA (53D: [new, in Nicaragua]) when I did Q AND A (71A: [audience part of event]). Known for the fun stuff of WALLFLOWER, because it was more of my personality at social events in high school (30D: [an awkwardness in dancing]). Definitely can’t say I’m a wallflower now, that’s for sure. It will soon be time for my ZOOM meeting and, speaking of Zoom, imagine you were one of the people who invested in the company before the pandemic-related spike in its usage (40A: [GoTo Meeting Rival]). $$$!! But before I go…
“Sports Make You Smarter” Moment of the Day: Pitch (46D: [Georgia symbol ]) – I’m sure BEQ will be disappointed that I didn’t use this space to talk a little more about Boston Red Sox “the great” Troy O’LEARY (48D: [Kevin of “Shark Tank”]), who hit a grand slam and a three-run home run in a decisive Game 5 playoff game by the BoSox in Cleveland in 1999. Instead, the Peach Bowl, held in Atlanta, has been played annually since 1968 as one of college football’s oldest bowl games. For many years, the game was played on December 31 and would be the last football game. Before the start of the new year. Since its sponsorship deal with Chick-fil-A began in 1997, the sport has steadily grown in bowl game hierarchy and stature and now regularly hosts semifinal games in the College Football Playoff.

Maine is the least densely populated state east of the Mississippi, with about 90% of its land covered by forests. Perhaps that is why the state is nicknamed “The Pine Tree State” …
