On to the creative entries to the contest. John Chaneski of Brooklyn sent in this You Tube club as his entry. Too bad he didn't sing it himself. Staying on that topic, ACPT superstar Anne Erdmann of Champaign-Urbana, wrote in her entry: "It occurred to me to send you a video of me singing 'The Brady Bunch' song, except then my name would go into the bag entitled 'Worst Entries I’ve Ever Received.'" Quite the opposite, Anne. It probably would have won.
Our creative entry winner for the contest is aspiring constructor Bret Agins, of Portland OR. He sent in a crossword, which you can do here: [Across Lite] [PDF]. He sent in a subtly themed 72-worder, and I especially like 11- and 38-Down. Nice stuff. Bret writes: "It seemed fitting to me to submit my contest crossword to you like this; as it was your site, attitude, and DIY spirit that inspired me to start writing my own (your answer is 53-across). I've been writing one a week and uploading them on Mondays here." Approved.
Our randomly winner is J. T. Williams of Austin, TX. Congrats to both J. T. and Bret.
Thanks for all who entered. Share the puzzle. New one tomorrow.
