  1. Here's my standard reminder... don't post the answer or any hints that could lead directly to the answer (e.g. via a chain of thought, or an internet search) before the deadline of Thursday at 3pm ET. If you know the answer, click the link and submit it to NPR, but don't give it away here.

    You may provide indirect hints to the answer to show you know it, but make sure they don't give the answer away. You can openly discuss your hints and the answer after the Thursday deadline. Thank you.

  7. In honor of Black History Month, here's a related puzzle. Name two actors with the same last name. The first name of the better-known actor is a book of the Bible, and the first name of the lesser-known actor is an anagram of another book of the Bible.

  11. As I posted near the end of last week's thread, I know of two actors, one famous and one not-so-famous, both of whom have their respective first AND last names BOTH each being books of the Bible - no anagramming of any of the four names necessary.

    1. "The Seduction of Claude Debussy" is the fifth and final studio album by Art of Noise, released in June 1999 in the United Kingdom and the United States, and December 1999 in Japan. It features a line-up of Trevor Horn, Anne Dudley, Paul Morley and Lol Creme, along with other appearances from John Hurt, soprano Sally Bradshaw, Rakim, and Donna Lewis. As it had been 10 years since their last album, this album carries a completely different sound to that which had defined their four previous albums. The group blended the music of French impressionist composer Claude Debussy with drum and bass, opera, hip hop, jazz, and narration, to create a concept album which they described as "the soundtrack to a film that wasn't made about the life of Claude Debussy."

    I have an answer. The book which anagrams to the last name is itself a first name. Also there is another actor with the same last name whose first name is not a book of the Bible. Add some punctuation to this actor's first name to get the stage name of a celebrity.

  61. JOHN HURT —> JOHN + RUTH

    My clue (which I hoped was sufficiently oblique and buried in a post long enough to make it invisible):
    “…frankly, I am mortified it took me this long to solve….” “mortified” —> hurt

    I thought, wrongly it seems, that if I had instead made reference to how “painful” it had been to solve (as, e.g., skydiveboy did in his “royal pain” comment, with a clever nod to Word Woman), I would have been Blaine-smacked.

    To ron: the Mississippi John Hurt song I alluded to was “Stack O’ Lee Blues” (1928). Even though the first version I heard and was most familiar with was Lloyd Price’s, Hurt’s is, imho, the best. In case you’re interested, here’s the YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hiMyrXzWp8M.

    > Curiously, the actor's father was a vicar and the actor's brother was a monk.

Now, a lot of those are just the result of vaso-vagal syncope; when I was an EMT with my local ambulance squad, we often found victims in the bathroom, which is the most inconvenient place from which to extricate them. A doc in my practice once had a personal near-miss in the rest room in our office when the Flushmate toilet tank mechanism exploded. Shards everywhere!

    Our friend Plantsmith has composed a Homeresque (not "Honda-esque!") "Odyssey" about a young man's journey across state lines to visit his beloved. Plantsmith's epic puzzle appears in his "Garden Of Puzzley Delights" feature, which also this week includes two wonderful puzzles regarding state landmarks (one of which is somewhat bizarre).
    Also on our menus:
    * A Schpuzzle of the Week about habits of humans and litters of critters,
    * a “Synful” slice-of-a-puzzle titled "Snatching virtue from the jaws of evil,"
    * a “She’s got a ticket to ride my seesaw” Dessert slice, and
    * Seven Riffing-Off-Shortz-And-Mace puzzles, in which we shall ask you to open to the Book of Thespialonians.
    Drop in for fun and frivolity!
    My answer this week was John Hurt (whom I recall from "Midnight Express"). I didn't submit "James Hester."

  70. John Hurt and the book o' Ruth.
    Somebody pointed out that Hurt's father was a clergyman and his brother is a monk. I did a (Wikipedia) research and discovered that his brother is indeed a Benedictine monk. That was the source of my "Rule of Blaine" comment. And of course St. Cloud is close to Saint John's Abbey in Minnesota, that's why I dragged Legolambda into it. The "oh, well" at the end was supposed to be reminiscent of Orwell, that is to 1984, Starring John Hurt. He is one of my all time faves.

  74. Here on this generous blog, I am always grateful on a Thursday for the answer that was unfindable to me. I am surprised that there was ever a question about the sex of the actor. There's only Ruth and Esther in what is reliably accepted as "The Bible." That's why Ruth and Esther get mentioned in the "Sabbath Prayer" in "Fiddler on the Roof." (DuckDuckGo the song and try not to tear up.)

    Ruling out women was a foregone cinch, thanks mostly to the A.D. 325 First Council of Nicaea. Before that, Mary Magdalene was a strong candidate for a chapter. In a more honest reality, it would be absurd to think she was a whore. To be fair, the people in 325 are no worse than we are today, so I'm just saying that I knew it wasn't a female after ruling out Ruth Gordon.

    BTW We did actually have a short outage early this morning, but we're not sure if it was due to the weather or not.

  76. My Black History month follow-up was to name two actors with the same last name. The first name of the better-known actor is a book of the Bible, and the first name of the lesser-known actor is an anagram of another book of the Bible.

    SAMUEL L. Jackson and O'SHEA Jackson, both Black actors. The latter is the son of Ice Cube, a chip off the old block.
