This week, a beauty to inaugurate his new abode at davidastle.com.

Update: Another deliciously whacky theme. AL’s early comments alerted me to its peculiarity so I made sure to capture it naked, and here it is before and after my scribblings:
And while I loved the theme, goddamn it I became frustrated. While I can understand the number of obscure words given the theme, what really annoyed me was some of strange wording.

A great theme, but not a brilliant crossword to my mind.
