This Might Be a Crossword Part II

· By Sommersmith · Published 2 months ago

Six months ago I made a 5x5 mini crossword entirely out of They Might Be Giants quotes, which you can find here: https://crosshare.org/crosswords/mCJZ4qyia563dufGWjRI/this-might-be-a-crossword Here's another one, 7x7 this time and hopefully still accessible and fun whether you're a TMBG fan or not!

      Amazed that I was able to figure this out without knowing ANY of these lyrics! Well done.

                      So fun! Did you create a custom word list with all the tmbg lyrics?

                        A guy named David MacKenzie had a project where he analyzed word frequency in TMBG lyrics - http://davidamackenzie.com/tmbg_lyrics/ - for it he scraped lyrics from TMBW.net and with a little bit of reformatting his data worked as a crossword word list!
