Entertaining theme today - combining the last names of two singers creates a common expression. My favorite is PAGETURNER (Singers Patti and Tina?) because a student named Paige who worked for me until recently told me she wanted to marry a man with the last name Turner so she could be Paige Turner. I also liked URBANLEGEND (Singers Keith and John?). The theme puts me in mind of wedding and engagement announcements that are printed with the future bride and groom's last names at the top. We have one excellent example from Horace's father that read Lowd-Noyes. :)
In addition to the fun theme, there was some good dictionary LOOT, with Gs and Bs GALORE: GALLS, GRIME, and SLOG, plus BLEW, BALMS, BONY, and BLING. Va-va-VOOM!
A few clue/answer pairs were less than PARFAITS including "From what IVE seen ..." at 20A and Govt. rules (REGS) at 21D, but nothing to get in a SNIT about. I thought 37D. Tool part used to create holes (DRILLBIT) could have had a better clue, like maybe 'Jumping Jack or push up, e.g.' And speaking of alternative clues, how about 'Puts the family on a diet?' for THINSKIN? Ha! I challenge you, dear readers, to come up with a clever clue for UVEA. I really wish constructors would turn a blind eye to that one.
