Wow, this took us forever. We started this after a dinner party, and after several drinks, and the SW took us forever, and after it all, we had left "MEzCAL" in where, apparently, MESCAL (20D: Agave product) was supposed to be, so…. DNF. Also, we didn't know MOONEY (41D: Comedian Paul), but, luckily, one of our drunken guests did. Another guest posited LYRIC (48D: Words that are rarely spoken), and it's a little ironic that that one took us so long, because all we've been doing all night is singing old seventies songs.
But enough about us. There's some great stuff in here. MAGI (48A: Star followers), BERG (44A: Something that's fallen off a shelf?), and maybe the best one, MOSES (59A: One advised to take two tablets). And there's also some stuff I don't particularly love, like NOUN (45A: What an article may refer to). Can an article be said to "refer to" a noun? Doesn't it just kind of accompany a noun? The noun. And are bulldogs more TENACIOUS than other dogs? Who knows? Not me.
EYESOCKET (58A: Something on either side of a bridge) was kind of gross, and I was all in on it being about a song. Verse… chorus… something like that. ANAGRAM (24A: Anemone, to name one) got me completely, but not Frannie.
A very tough puzzle for us under the circumstances. We like a challenge, and this one had some good stuff, but it was not without problems. I'll give it a thumbs up, though. What did you think?
