Brandon Koppy’s New York Times crossword—Amy’s recap

NY Times crossword resolution, 12 23 22, no. 1223

Ah, there we go. This week’s Fri NYT hits precisely the problem stage I used to be anticipating.

I notably just like the intersection of a STARING CONTEST and FEELS SEEN. When would you are feeling extra seen? Other fave fill: FLOAT TANK, EMU FARMS (I’d have guessed that emu ranch was the time period of selection, however emu farm far out-Googles it), your BOTTOM DOLLAR (odd that high greenback isn’t its reverse), MUST-READS, TENSE UP, PODCAST, and RETINAL SCANNER (anybody watch South Side? in a single latest episode, there’s a facility for frosting the place you don’t scan your retina, you lick the safety scanner!).

Most horrible fill ever: 11d. [Follower of an arctic blast], COLD SPELL. Here are some associated climate phrases for you: polar vortex, bomb cyclone, frostbite, winds gusting to 50 mph, wind chills of 20 to 40° beneath zero anticipated. Grr! But then, it’ll be 50° (above zero!) in every week.

58a. [Things not good to have next to one’s records], ASTERISKS. And right here I used to be considering of warmth sources that might warp your stack of vinyl data. #OldEnough (The clue’s about, say, sports activities data held by athletes who have been doping.)

Four stars from me.
