        Not one but two They Might Be Giants references! Fun grid and clean, sparkling fill as always.

          Thank you! Are crossword constructors TMBG fans?? I had no idea... 😇
        • Bodegas 🤓3:26 · 4 months ago
          That was fun! Love the clue for IRL
          12A IRLOffline, online
          . Also learned some new facts from the other clues. Well made.

            It's always fun when I can slip in interesting info without affecting the difficulty of the puzzle. Thanks for solving!

          • Maxish 🤓6:13 · 4 months ago
            I could hear Danny DaVito (L.A. Confidential) in my ear, and wanted ONTHEQT so bad.
            Really enjoyed it --- and two revealers!

              My wife solved this one with her co-workers and she said there was a sharp generational divide on that entry :)
              Glad you enjoyed the puzzle!

              I got stuck on Harold's partner - couldn't figure out how Harold and Maude could be considered a stoner movie. 🙃
              • Sommersmith constructor · 4 months ago
                Ha! Someone needs to make a Schrödinger puzzle where KUMAR
                28D KUMARHarold's partner in a stoner-film twosome
                and MAUDE are both acceptable answers!
              • FrankieHeck 🤓3:15 · 4 months ago
                Loved the puzzle! (And also love TMBG!)
              • Michele G 6:04 · 4 months ago
                Very fun puzzle. I liked how you worked the two theme into so many clues (e.g. EMU
                36A EMUTwo-meter-tall bird
                ). And the clue for IGLOO
                3D IGLOOHome with hard water?
                made me smile.

                  Thank you! There weren't nearly as many theme references in the clues originally, so I'm glad I took a SECONDLOOK

                  at the clues. :)
