... but is it into them?

This meta was motivated by an entry in a recent Pun of a Kind meta. This would be a week 1 if there weren't so many other long entries that look like they should be themers but aren't and if I hadn't gotten so punchy in my cluing. But there should…

The plays the thing

This should be a really quick knock-off good for a tiny chuckle, I think.

The end is just the beginning

So, I made a smart-assed prompt. But really the conventional prompt would be "The answer is a so-and-so many letter word" and what does it matter how many letters it has? It has 10 if that matters.
The mechanism is simple and I'd find it hard to…

Of course

This one's silly. There are many ways to put the answer in. If Crosshare says it isn't correct but you think it is, be patient. If I see a new acceptable way of phrasing I'll add it. (I've got thirteen already)

Dial M for Meta

The answer to the meta is two movies. Name both. The first movie gives you instructions to solve the meta and how to find the second movie (and itself... sort of). As well the puzzle has eight other movies by the same director hidden as Easter Eggs.…

What a lot of ....

This one was inspired by another Crosshare meta (but it'd be too big of a hint if I told you which one). This is maybe a you-see-it-or-you-don't puzzle. Will tell you the few hints given in the clues to point you in the right direction are all not

So... I couldn't solveAl Sisti's "Do I have to spell it out for you" MMM ( [and I still can't]. So I wrote this puzzle based on a rabbit hole I knew wouldn't…

I wouldn't do that to you

A completely innocent meta... whistles and walks away

My Word!

So I still haven't gotten the WSJ Meta Contest of 4/14/23 (I'll take a nudge) so this one is based on a rabbit hole I knew there was no point going down.
The metanism would be quite hard but I put in a lot of meta-meta suggestions to point you in the…

Fools Mate

Hey! MATE is an anagram of META.
So I'm tired of those themers obliquely refer to words, take the first letter and spell things out metas. So this isn't one of those.
Anyway I love the idea of chess. I'm pretty damned bad at it. Oh, I'm better…
