Constructor's Note
Another cross-post, but I tried rewriting a few of the clues this time :)

    13A13ABrazilian composer Zequinha de _____[-----] has apparently never shown up in the NYT before. I have learned to play one of his pieces on the piano before though, so his name was fresh in my mind when I built this crossword.

      Nice one! Learned some things for sure.

          this took me 7:49, but i came from dfac just to tell you how much i loved this puzzle. i loved the themers, and i loved the clues that spoke to me as a gamer. i liked 10d10DIATA code for Turkmenistan's capital[---], the cluing for 59a59ATool that Rosie works with[------], 72a72AIce castle builder[----], (i thought 72 would be another video game clue). hats off for leroy jenkins in 4d4DComposer Anderson (with a similar name to gamer Jenkins)[-----]. i don't have much else to add, i just had a really nice time solving this puzzle
