        Thanks 😊
      • jasonwestley 🤓10:45 · 3 months ago
        Nicely done. Was about 75% done when I worked out the theme, which is just right I think 😁
        • Mike D constructor · 3 months ago
          Heh that's just what I was aiming for!
          • kieranjboyd 5:33 · 3 months ago
            Same! "Gee, there's a lot of Z's in this grid, maybe I should finally check th- oh! Clever."
            • Duncan Lyle 🤓7:01 · 3 months ago
              Same, it took almost til the end for me! At first I was rebus-ing ZERO into all the Z boxes, but it still wasn't quite adding up until I looked at the rest of the acrosses and saw that ERO was already there! Very fun and well-executed.

              Very cute!

                        That theme took be an embarrassingly long time to figure out. Very cool!

                            I don't get 16D
                            16D SHOEGAZERock genre for sneakerheads?
                            • Mike D constructor · 3 months ago
                              The joke was supposed to be that sneakerheads (folks into collecting sneakers) are into "gazing at shoes", hence they'd be into SHOEGAZE

                              • dplass 4:32 · 3 months ago
                                Whoosh. Never heard of shoegaze, didn't even register as a word in my brain!
                            • Abide 🤓9:31 · 3 months ago
                              Very enjoyable! Penny didn’t drop until the last 10 squares filled in. 😮

                                Perfect! Thank you 😊

                                  Listened to my first shoegaze playlist today. Not bad!

                                  Challenging and clever. Amazing clue for 16D
