Loki is bound to a sharp rock using the entrails of one of his sons. A serpent drips venom which is collected in a bowl, and then his wife must empty the venom onto Loki when the bowl is full. The venom causes Loki great pain, and his writhing results in what we poor mortals experience as earthquakes.

26…2015 Payne Stewart Award honoree Ernie..ELS

Ernie Els is a South African golfer. Els a big guy but he has an easy fluid golf swing that has earned him the nickname “The Big Easy”. He is a former World No. 1 and has won four majors: the US Open (1994 & 1997) and the British Open (2002 & 2012).

Payne Stewart was a crowd favorite on the golf course, and always recognizable as he wore flamboyant attire that included bright, patterned knickerbockers. Sadly, Stewart died in famous airplane accident. All aboard the private plane in which he was travelling, including the pilots, succumbed to hypoxia after a loss of cabin pressure. The stricken plane flew for hours on autopilot escorted by USAF planes, until it ran out of fuel and crashed in South Dakota.

32…Toaster Strudel kin..POP-TARTS

Pop-Tart is the most successful single brand for the Kellogg company, as millions of the sugary treats are sold every year. The US Military bought quite a few in 2001, and dropped 2.4 million Pop-Tarts into Afghanistan during the invasion after 9/11.

General Mills introduced Toaster Strudels in competition to Kellogg’s Pop-Tarts in 1985. The company started using the slogan “Something ‘better’ just popped up”.

34…Unhand, in a toaster brand slogan..L’EGGO

Eggo is the brand name of a line of frozen waffles made by Kellogg’s. When they were introduced in the 1930s, the name “Eggo” was chosen to promote the “egginess” of the batter. “Eggo” replaced the original name chosen, which was “Froffles”, created by melding “frozen” and “waffles”. The brand has a well-known advertising slogan “L’eggo my Eggo”.

38…Nevada’s __ 51..AREA

The famed Area 51 is a remote base in the USAF Nevada Test and Training Range. There’s no question that Area 51 is an unusual base in that frontline operational units are not deployed there. It seems that it is used for developing and testing new and classified weapons facilities for the US Military and other US agencies like the CIA. The government did not even acknowledge that Area 51 existed until 1995, and this official position fuelled a theory that the base is home to UFOs that landed on Earth.

42…Estrada of “CHiPs”..ERIK

Actor Erik Estrada’s big break came with the movie “Airport 1975”. He then played motorcycle police officer Poncherello on the television show “CHiPs” from 1977-81.

45…”The Tempest” hero..PROSPERO

William Shakespeare’s play “The Tempest” tells the story of Prospero, who was removed from the throne of Milan and banished to a deserted island along with his daughter Miranda. The island is home to a devilish character called Caliban, who is forced into slavery on the arrival of the exiles. Prospero learns sorcery while cast away, and eventually conjures up a tempest that drives those who usurped his throne onto the island’s shores (in particular his own brother, Antonio). On the island, Prospero is eventually successful in revealing Antonio’s lowly nature.

54…MSN and AOL..ISPS

An Internet Service Provider (ISP) is just what the name indicates, a company that provides its customers with access to the Internet.

The Microsoft Network (MSN) used to be an Internet service provider (ISP). These days, MSN is mainly a web portal.

Founded as Quantum Computer Services in 1983, the company changed its name in 1989 to America Online. As America Online went international, the acronym AOL was used in order to shake off the “America-centric” sound to the name. During the heady days of AOL’s success the company could not keep up with the growing number of subscribers, so people trying to connect often encountered busy signals. That’s when users referred to AOL as “Always Off-Line”.

57…Crunchy snacks sometimes dipped in baba ghanouj..PITA CHIPS

Baba ghanoush (also baba ghanouj) is an Arab dish with the main ingredient of mashed eggplant. It is sometimes served as a (delicious) dip.

60…”Idol” judge replaced by DeGeneres..ABDUL

Paula Abdul is primarily a singer and dancer, and someone who endeared herself even more to the American public in recent years as a judge on “American Idol”. Abdul had a famous husband for a couple of years, as she was married to actor Emilio Estevez from 1992-94.

Ellen DeGeneres is a very, very successful TV personality, having parlayed her career in stand-up comedy into lucrative gigs as an actress and talk show host. Back in 1997 DeGeneres chose the “Oprah Winfrey Show” to announce that she was a lesbian. Her character on “The Ellen Show” also came out as a lesbian in a scene with her therapist, who was played by Oprah Winfrey. Nice twist!

Fox’s “American Idol” is a spin-off show that was created after the amazing success of the British television show “Pop Idol”. I can’t abide either program(me) …

63…After-school event … and, literally, what takes place at this puzzle’s circles..PTA MEETING

Parent-Teacher Association (PTA)

65…H.H. Munro’s pen name..SAKI

Hector Hugh Munro was a British writer, actually born in Burma. Munro was famous for his short stories, which he published using the pen name “Saki”. His most well-known story is “The Open Window”, which ends with the great line “Romance at short notice was her specialty”.

67…Indian royals..RANIS

A ranee (also spelled “rani”) is a queen or a princess, the female equivalent of a raja in India.

71…Robin’s house..NEST

The American robin has a reddish-orange breast. This coloring gave the bird its name, due to the similarity to the European robin. The two species are not in fact related. It is the American robin that famously lays light-blue eggs.

Down

2…University about an hour from Columbus..OHIO

Ohio University was founded well over 200 years ago, in 1804 in Athens, the city where it is still located today.

5…Merit badge gp…BSA

As every little boy (of my era) knows, the Scouting movement was founded by Lord Baden Powell, in 1907. The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) soon followed, in 1910. And, the Boy Scouts motto is “Be Prepared”.

6…”The Blacklist” actor Alan..ALDA

Alan Alda has had a great television career, especially of course on “M*A*S*H”. Alda won his first Emmy in 1972, for playing Hawkeye Pierce on “M*A*S*H”. He won his most recent Emmy in 2006 for his portrayal of Presidential candidate Arnold Vinick in “The West Wing”. When it comes to the big screen, my favorite of Alda’s movies is the 1978 romantic comedy “Same Time, Next Year” in which he starred opposite Ellen Burstyn.

“The Blacklist” is an entertaining, albeit a little formulaic, crime drama TV show starring James Spader and Megan Boone. Spader plays a successful criminal who surrenders to the FBI in order to help catch a “blacklist” of high-profile criminals.

10…Wang with a Hippie Princess fragrance line..VERA

Vera Wang’s first choice for a career was figure skating. Although she a very capable skater, Wang failed to make the 1968 US Olympics team. She switched to the world of fashion, and is now famous for her designs of wedding dresses … but also costumes for figure skaters.

11…Acrobat maker..ADOBE

Adobe Acrobat is the software used to create .pdf files. Most of us are more familiar with the associated application called Adobe Reader, because that’s what we use to read those .pdf files.

12…Escargot..SNAIL

“Escargot” is the French word for “snail”. In order to eat snails, apparently they have to be “purged” before killing them. That means starving them or feeding them on something “wholesome” for several days before cooking them up. Ugh …

19…Servant of 45-Across..ARIEL

(45a…”The Tempest” hero..PROSPERO)

Ariel is a spirit, a character who appears in William Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” and who becomes a servant of the magician Prospero. Ariel was actually viewed as a male character when the play was first staged, and the text of the play supports this assumption. Many believe that the part was originally played by a boy actor, and over time the tendency has been to use female actors, but not exclusively.

21…Lake __: Blue Nile source..TANA

Lake Tana is the largest lake in Ethiopia, and is the source of the Blue Nile. The lake has a number of islands of significant size, many of which are home to ancient monasteries.

24…Screenwriter Ephron..NORA

Nora Ephron had many talents, including writing film scripts and novels. Many of the movies that she wrote, she also directed. These would include some of my favorite movies of all time like “Sleepless in Seattle”, “You’ve Got Mail” and most recently, the wonderful “Julie & Julia”. And, did you know that Nora Ephron’s second marriage was to journalist Carl Bernstein of Watergate fame? She wrote an autobiographical novel based on her life with Bernstein, dealing in particular with Bernstein’s affair with the daughter of British Prime Minister James Callaghan.

28…Conservative Brit..TORY

“Tory” comes from the Irish word “tóraí” meaning “outlaw, robber”. The term “tory” was originally used for an Irish outlaw and later became a term of abuse for Irish rebels. At the end of the reign of King Charles II in Britain, there was a political divide with one side being called “Whigs” and the other “Tories”. Historically, the term “Tory” evolved to basically mean a supporter of the British monarchy, and today is used for a member of the British Conservative Party.

31…Watch closely..KEEP TABS ON

When one “keeps tabs on” someone, one is using the word “tabs” in the sense of “tablets”, writing pads. Keeping tabs on, meaning keeping an eye on, literally implies ones is recording things about someone, in writing. The use of “tab” in this sense is also the derivation of a restaurant “tab”, a written account of the bill.

35…One of dogdom’s “gentle giants”..GREAT DANE

The Great Dane dog of isn’t actually from Denmark, and rather is a German breed.

40…Dadaist Jean..ARP

Jean Arp was a French artist renowned for his work with torn and pasted paper, although that wasn’t the only medium he used. Arp was the son of a French mother and German father and spoke both languages fluently. When he was speaking German he gave his name as Hans Arp, but when speaking French he called himself Jean Arp. Both “Hans” and “Jean” translate into English as “John”. In WWI Arp moved to Switzerland to avoid being called up to fight, taking advantage of Swiss neutrality. Eventually he was told to report to the German Consulate and fill out paperwork for the draft. In order to get out of fighting, Arp messed up the paperwork by writing the date in every blank space on the forms. Then he took off all of his clothes and walked with his papers over to the officials in charge. Arp was sent home …

Dadaism thrived during and just after WWI, and was an anti-war, anti-bourgeois and anti-art culture. The movement began in Zurich, Switzerland started by a group of artists and writers who met to discuss art and put on performances in the Cabaret Voltaire, frequently expressing disgust at the war that was raging across Europe.

44…Part of little girls’ makeup?..SPICE

The nursery rhyme “What Are Little Boys Made Of?” is falling out of favor these days as it is considered sexist by modern standards:

What are little boys made of?
What are little boys made of?
Slugs and snails
And puppy-dogs’ tails,
That’s what little boys are made of.

What are little girls made of?
What are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice
And everything nice,
That’s what little girls are made of.

46…Animal rights org…SPCA

Unlike in most developed countries, there is no “umbrella” organization in the US with the goal of preventing cruelty to animals. Instead there are independent organizations set up all over the nation using the name SPCA. Having said that, there is an organization called the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) that was originally intended to operate across the country, but really it now focuses its efforts in New York City.

51…Big name in smartwatches..APPLE

Apple does indeed make some smart smartwatches …

58…College town north of Des Moines..AMES

The Iowa city of Ames was founded as a stop on the Cedar Rapids and Missouri Railroad in 1864. It was named for US Congressman Oakes Ames from the state of Massachusetts in honor of the role that Ames played in the building of the transcontinental railroad.

The city of Des Moines is the capital of Iowa, and takes its name from the Des Moines River. The river in turn takes its name from the French “Riviere des Moines” meaning “River of the Monks”. It looks like there isn’t any “monkish” connection to the city’s name per se. “Des Moines” was just the name given by French traders who corrupted “Moingona”, the name of a group of Illinois Native Americans who lived by the river. However, others do contend that French Trappist monks, who lived a full 200 miles from the river, somehow influenced the name.

61…Lanai strings..UKES

The ukulele (“uke”) originated in the 1800s and mimicked a small guitar brought to the Hawaiian Islands by Portuguese immigrants.

Lanai is the sixth largest of the Hawaiian Islands. Lanai was first spotted by Europeans just a few days after Captain Cook was killed on the Big Island of Hawaii in 1779. In 1922, the Hawaiian Pineapple Company bought the whole island of Lanai and turned most of it into the world’s largest pineapple plantation. Since then, Lanai has been known as “The Pineapple Island”. Today, 98% of the island is owned by Larry Ellison, the CEO of Oracle, and 2% is owned by the State of Hawaii.

62…BuzzFeed article, often..LIST

BuzzFeed is an Internet media company that was founded in 2006 in New York City. The BuzzFeed website features a lot of lists, video clips and quizzes.

64…Fed. property manager..GSA

24 thoughts on “LA Times Crossword Answers 8 Jun 16, Wednesday”

  1. LAT: 3 letters off, 17:22. Pretty much a paint-by-numbers typical Wednesday. Messed up 6D rather stupidly but did the rest okay.

    WSJ: DNF (used paper) after spending quite a lot of time (hours!) on trying to break the upper left and ending up with a ton of errors. The Sinatra theme was nice, but like the previous Beatles one, you have to fit the songs people are going to know into the theme, and I’m sure the temptation is there to shop for anything that’ll work. The main problem I had was the secondary theme (hair care), namely 20A, 4D. 5A was strange as well.

  2. Finished in normal Wednesday time, but it felt tougher than usual for some reason. I noticed Bill’s time was almost identical to yesterday’s, but mine was about 50% longer than yesterday’s. Oh well – finished error free anyway. Single-master had me stumped until I read the blog. Who knew that UAE would have a budget airline? I thought there was only opulance and poverty there. I didn’t realize there would even be such a mid-market like that.

    I always felt a kinship with Payne Stewart. He was born in my home state of Missouri, and he died on his way to a PGA event just about 2 miles down the road from my house in Houston. Sad.

    Finally a great big “sheeesh” to any and everyone who gets offended at a nursery rhyme because of lack of PC. Goodness is there anything left that doesn’t offend someone? End of rant….but it felt really good..

    Best-

  3. …also – I won’t mention – again – that a kg is a unit of mass and not weight. I won’t mention that something that is 5kg on earth is also 5 kg in the weightlessness of the space station. Something that weighs 5 lbs on earth, however, would weigh 0 on the space station.

    Just wanted to point out that I won’t be mentioning any of this… 🙂

    Best

  4. Finished the LAT’s without final errors. I’ve got to get the spelling of “uh-uh” down one of these days, which will help my strike over ratio considerably.

    Next up the WSJ.

    Have a great Hump Day all.

  5. I blanked on that “Single-master” AGAIN!
    Whaa? What does that mean? Oh, it’s a boat.
    Bill, I did not know Vera Wang was a figure skater. Very interesting.
    Question- How do you put in those inserts with the vertical line and Italics like you did with the “What are little boys made of?, Bill?
    Also, how do you guys add emoticons?
    I’m out of the loop, I guess.

    1. Pookie,
      The vertical line and italics is the format the blog’s design uses for quoted text. The quotation format is one of the HTML tags that is permitted in this comment box. To quote some text put the word “blockquote” in between brackets (< and >) before the text quoted. Then put “/blockquote” in between brackets (< and >) after the quoted text. I’m not sure about emoticons. Will have to check and get back to you.

    2. Pookie,
      It looks like you can add emoticons using the standard shortcuts you’d use on your phone, for example. Well, I suppose those shortcuts are somewhat passe nowadays, but you know the type of thing “:” + “-” + “)” gives you 🙂

  6. Just finished the WSJ successfully. This puzzle played to some of my strengths, so it didn’t present as much of a challenge as I thought it might. My parents had every album Sinatra put out, so I was well versed in the song titles used as answers. That really gave me a huge leg up in solving this grid.

    I also wanted to “reminisce” a bit regarding the clue for Dame Edna who I saw in concert in Melbourne Australia back in 1981 while on holiday from my job with the Arabian American Oil Company. I’d made friends from Melbourne who I ran into in London, and they took me to the concert. It was so much fun and they told me when Dame Edna started in on local politicians and politics what the “inside” local joke was all about.

  7. The only difficulty I detected was the three-word answers, which is a bit uncommon for a LAT Wednesday.

    I remember the story of Payne Stewart. The week after he died, the PGA was in some very foggy venue. In the early morning before the tournament began, a long bagpiper walked up the fairway to the 1st tee playing “Amazing Grace,” turned around and walked away. It was quite moving.

    Kramer once adopted a highway on Seinfeld, with hilarious results.

    1. [youtube=”https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hki37NCesLE”]

      Hopefully that’ll work. If not, I’ll quit trying. :/

        1. Actually, yes, I was trying to embed it. A lot of what you can do (blockquote, emoticons, embedding and the like) depends on the theme selected and what the blog owner sets on the discussion end of things. When you changed over, I didn’t want to spam the board just to figure out these kinds of things, but thought I’d find opportunities to try certain things as they come.

  8. I lost the comments section for a minute. Sorry, Bill…I emailed you and then figured out where to click.

    1. No problem, Tony. It’s taking me a while to get used the vagaries of the new design here as well.

  9. OK, Bill let’s see if this works,

    (

    ) To quote some text put the word “blockquote” in between brackets () before the text quoted. Then put “/blockquote” in between brackets () after the quoted text.
    (

    )
    🙂

  10. I am late today – eye exam, with the pupil dilating drops. ( What else is new …)

    I enjoyed the puzzle, which was very challenging. But I ultimately finished, so I am satisfied.

    Jeff, ( horrors, ) , 50 years and I didnt know that Kilograms ( and grams, for that matter – ) are mass not weight. I read the explanation, that the weight is actually Newtons – actually I Kg, is 9.8 Newtons. But we USE Kgs for weight anyway – so Jeff, please stop raising that spectre. let bygones be bygones, and dont rock the boat !! Hush ! Since 99.9999 percent of us are not going to the moon, weight suits us just fine. And, in case, the ‘a’ – the acceleration due to /of gravity does a sudden shift, then, and only then, let us know of the facts. Why is it, that suddenly you are making me really scared ??? Peace, my friend. 😉

    Have a nice day, and evening, all – and ignore my diatribe to our friend, Jeff.

  11. Hey! It works, sort of. There’s extra stuff in there, like someone’s clipping their nails …..
    Thanks, Bill

    1. You’re welcome, Pookie. I had to put those extra brackets in there so that the tag didn’t create the actual blockquote. But, you’ve got it!

  12. Jeff – good point.

    This was tough, but only had to Google BANTU. For me, with a Burnikel on Wed, is good.

  13. Hi gang! Night Watch checking in!
    Great comments from all y’all today. @Willie, I thought of that Seinfeld episode too here. It was just on the other night. Not one of my favorites — I like the earlier seasons better — but there’s always something to laugh at with that show.
    I thought I had this grid done correctly til I came here! One letter off: I had STEP 1 instead of STEP A…..GSI looked okay to me. Careless.
    I do feel we’re back to normal after (for me) a weird start to the week. Didn’t care much for either Mon or Tues.
    Anyhoo — now I’ll either do some online shopping or I’ll go to sleep. If I’m smart I’ll go to sleep….
    Be well~~?

  14. Counterfeit catchers are Secret Service agents, part of Homeland Security, not Treasury. They are Gmen, not Tmen…

    1. I think that’s a good catch, Richard. I suppose one could argue that T-man was a correct answer prior to 2002, when the Secret Service was part of Treasury. That said, I think that the clue implies a reference to the current situation.
