As I look again now at the revealer (58A: Everybody … or part of the contents of 18-, 25-, 36-, and 50-Across (ONEANDALL)), I actually quite like the theme, but I didn't notice it at all while I was solving.
GONEBALLISTIC (36A: Flown into a rage) and STONEWALLED (50A: Refused to coöperate) both seem a little odd (the former moreso than the latter) in the past tense, but both are close enough for puzzlement work, and the other two, RHONEVALLEY (25A: Wine-producing area of SE France) (ahh… the Rhone valley…) and PHONECALL (18A: An operator may help place one) (what century are we in, again?) are both perfectly normal.
I thought that GOOSES (28A: Pokes in the rear) were more pinches than pokes, but what do I really know of such things? Another thing I don't know much about is why Ms. Lempel would choose the numbers "33A: 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34 …, e.g." for a SERIES? Shouldn't that either start with a "0" or result in the answer "sequence?" Well, I guess "series" is fine, but the zero really ought to be there, otherwise the two ones don't make any sense!
Not much junk today, and I enjoyed much of the long stuff. The upper-left, with its ONTHEGO (1D: Always rushing, rushing, rushing), FORASONG (2D: Very inexpensively), and FLEWSOLO (3D: Went without a copilot) is quite nice. And for some reason, I enjoyed seeing CANISTER (40D: Flour or sugar container) in the grid. For a minute I was held up by trying to enter two Ns. Also, I looked up the word (the two-n spelling is given as a variant), and it comes through Latin canistrum (basket) from Greek kanastron (wicker basket), from kanna (reed). Interesting, no?
A fine start to the week.
