    very nice, i got a kick out of 20a20ALeft 10 on 9 (5)[-----]... seems to me to be a lot of ddefs tho... but even so im very slow on the uptake
    im always jealous of you geniuses that can make puzzles, and wish i could join in the fun, but creation and ideation dont seem to be my AREA of expertise :)

      Some great stuff in this puzzle, like 7A7ASomehow, I braved the run-down building (4, 3)[-------], 8A8AMusic - it's all around us (3)[---], 13A13AIt may make you get a role mix-up! (5, 3)[--------], 14D14DThe realizations arrive about 6 AM! (4)[----], and my favorites, 1D1DTo eliminate emissions initially, take a bus (4)[----] and 4D4DGetting things wrong about a stud, maybe (7)[-------]. I think in a midi you want to be extra cautious about similar words like TENTH and TEN, especially when they cross (15D15D20% off 10% of a sleeping place (4)[----] and 20A20ALeft 10 on 9 (5)[-----]), but I know plenty of people who would disagree! Looking forward to solving more.

        Super fun although I couldn't do it all without revealing! 4D4DGetting things wrong about a stud, maybe (7)[-------] in particular was memorable :)

          First cryptic I've managed to solve entirely on my own! Super satisfying solve, lots of clever cluing. Thank you!
