Trailblazer Crossword 3 Letters

Word of the day: Leopold AUER (40D: Violinist Leopold) – Leopold von Auer (Hungarian: Auer Lipót; 7 June 1845 – 15 July 1930) was a Hungarian violinist, academic, conductor and composer, best known as an outstanding violin teacher. […] Auer is remembered as one of the violin’s most important educators, and was one of the most sought-after teachers for gifted students. “Auer’s position in the history of violin playing is based on his teaching.” Many notable virtuoso violinists were among his students, including Mischa Elman, Konstanty Gorski, Jascha Heifetz, Nathan Milstein, Toscha Seidel, Efrem Zimbalist, Georges Boulanger, Benno Rabinof, Kathleen Parlow, Julia Klumpke, Thelma Given, Sylvia Lent, Kemp Stillings and Oscar Shumsky. Among these were “some of the greatest violinists” of the twentieth century. (Wikipedia)

Well, for a puzzle that started with the clue [Taradiddle] (ie with troublesome peculiarity), this turned out OK. The theme was really, really simple – simple conceptually, easy to uncover – but somehow it was still fun to discover all the “NBA”-containing answers, which were by far the most interesting things on the web. Figuring out it was a rebus went like this. A. realize that it is Thursday, which is the most likely rebus day of the week; B. Get to [Regain, as devotion], realize it’s supposed to be a WIN thing, but there’s not enough room for any answer to make sense; C. get “K” from DANKE (4D: Opposite of “Bitte”), realize the intersection *must* be WON BACK; D. see that “NBA” (a meaningful entity) can fit in one square; E. make it fit. It’s probably a few letters too many, it all happened so quickly, but hopefully you can see how the puzzle came about. By far the most important solving step in that progression is A: If you don’t know how to look for rebuses, at least don’t have them on your radar, then of course a puzzle like this can destroy you. But if you were aware of the possibility, this one was very easy to see. I hit the revealer shortly thereafter, which told me that “NBA” would be the only sequence of letters I’d be looking for (before that, I thought I might have to hunt down the initials of all four major American sports leagues). I knew what NBA JAM was, which was undoubtedly a huge advantage in solving this thing quickly. Very easy to spot and repetitive in its expression (NBANBANBAetc.) and yet, as I say, these “NBA” answers are all pretty nice. While I like BEANBAG CHAIRS as an answer, I point to not breaking “NBA” across the two words in the answer (as all the other longer theme answers do – actually breaking SUSAN B. ANTHONY across *three* elements ). But eight pleasant theme responses, no clunkers, that’s not bad.

My only gripes today came in the edit/clue. Well, and AUER . AUER is a name I associate with very very bygone puzzles. It brings its own mustiness. I only know because of crossword puzzles. NYT confused Leopold with (actor) Mischa once over a decade ago and let me tell you, it’s bad enough not knowing who the AUERs are. When the crossword puzzle can’t even keep them straight, it’s just depressing. Well, at least I’ve seen Mischa AUER in movies by now (My Man Godfrey is particularly exceptional). You see LAILA, ENSLER, LES PAUL and ASNER, you think OK, I see you people all the time, but you are familiar enough that I can just wave and move on. Whereas with AUER I was very conscious of knowing something (due to past crossword trauma) that a large percentage of the solving base just didn’t want to know. Not a great feeling. You’d think I’d throw my hands in the air in triumph, knowing a relatively obscure thing. But that’s not how my brain works. AUER and [Taradiddle] just gave me bad vibes. Musty Puzzles of Yore vibes. Maybe you’re thinking, “your stupid bad vibes aren’t worth a SOU!” Sounds like something an AUER stan would say. But still, AUER had fair crosses though, so I/you probably shouldn’t complain too much.Eponym for an Italian ice cream chain / FRI 10-8-21 / Portmanteau for a certain hybrid feline / Get a sum via special relativity? / Introduction to State / Cause of a Colony Party / Cries Heard at a Shoe Auction / One who Protests Screw Caps Says

Word of the Day: RITA’s (30D: Eponym for an Italian ice cream chain) — Rita’s Franchise Company, LLC, doing business as Rita’s Italian Ice (informally known as “Rita’s Water Ice”), is a privately owned and operated American quick service restaurant chain that primarily operates in the mid-Atlantic United States.

I feel like you might get one of those quaint/archaic A-words per puzzle and that’s it. Like, OK, ATILT, it’s yours, you used it, so don’t bring AGASP to the party, too. You will have to incur some sort of penalty for AGASP. We need some form of income tax. Disadvantages. Something. I use APACE more than I use either ATILT (extremely rarely) or AGASP (literally never), and I don’t really use APACE except at least semi-ironically. Mocking formally, perhaps. But if I was put off by AGASP ATILT, I was strangely charmed by TEIGEN TIGON; all TIGONs are now officially called TEIGEN. I mean as far as I know TIGON is like yeti ie. totally mythological but if I ever see one I’ll name it TEIGEN, just like if I ever meet a yeti I’ll name it Betty unless it makes the yeti mad, in which case I’ll just call it sir or ma’am or whatever now will be called. The point is that there is a bad, similar-sounding pair of words, and then there is a good one, and thus the universe finds its way back into balance. Crossword tao. As for this first across / last across, kind of thematic … I’m not a fan, but it’s also innocent. It is harmless. I just don’t see the point. AHA MOMENTS and EYE OPENERS have the same clue…for what reason? I feel like if you’re going to do a little flashy thing like that, there should be something about it. The final Across track seems to have a whole “IT’S ME AGAIN!” attitude: “Remember me, from the first Across clue. Well, I’m back. Why, you ask? Good question…OK, bye!”

We have both NOB and WINE’S NOB in this grid, which seems suspicious. You would think that a NOB would be enough. More seriously, I almost left a bug on the web when I had 13D: Ballpark figs. (ERAS). like ESTS and then ETAS … and since I don’t really know what an AERO -stat is, I had a moment where I thought “is … is AETOstat a thing??” The only -stats I know are rheo- and maybe photo-? Anyway, thankfully, I guessed correctly that AETO- would be pure nonsense, and then realized, “Oh, *ballpark* figs. Like the *baseball* ballpark. Gotcha.” Otherwise, there were almost no obstacles to a quick solution today. Oh, RITA. We don’t have RITA’s Ice here. Didn’t have them growing up in CA, didn’t have them in MI, don’t have them here in central NY. Looks like there is one in Horseheads (real place) and if you go over the border into PA you can quickly find a bunch of them. Scranton area, looks like, well, a couple. But like TIGON and the yeti, RITA’s are fictional to me. Worse than fictional – I’ve actually heard of TIGON and Yeti before; RITA’s, no. Although I’ve probably seen RITA with the same clue in a bygone crossword and said pretty much the same thing. Not hard to come from crossings, although I first had TEEN IDOL to 30A: Musician on the cover of Rolling Stone, often (ROCK IDOL ), so it was TITA’s Italian ice a little.

This is a very solid grid overall. I like “LET’S DIG IN!” although “GET IN!” itself feels like the much much much more common phrase. I like CHIA SEEDS even though I don’t think I’ve had them and I like KEG STANDS even though I don’t actually like them frat stunts and binge drinking are two things that
