DA on the 8/9th of October, 2010

Fresh from a star turn at the Wheeler Centre, I’m expecting another fine demonstration of verbal legerdemain from DA this happy day.

(No spoilers on this thread until Monday)

Update: The Elvis theme helped a lot, but I still missed a fair bit:

I consider Elvis to be the best road music in existence. Whether it be from the early classic Sun sessions or just a random compilation, nothing matches Elvis for bringing joy to pour souls trapped in a cramped car for hours, no decent scenery for miles. And despite this, I’m still struggling with one of the King’s classic songs…

  1. Mmm, for me this was the easiest for yonks, though I am no fan of 4D. Got it out in just one cup of coffee for afternoon tea, short black at that. 87 y.o. mom only got one word, and I don’t know why, because she always beats me to any clue involving the word ‘brothel’! So I gave her 4D, and will check on her progress tomorrow.

  2. I haven’t had a look at today’s DA, because the paper wasn’t delivered,so I have been working on yesterday’s DS, and it’s excellent- some inventive clues and oblique definitions.

  3. Ditto Peter. 4D was a doddle, then the four related 15 letter answers gave one a huge lead in.

  4. Another fairly easy one, I thought. Liked 10A and 9A/7D. Couple of queries in other thread.
