Since Kåre Enga in Montana and Brian K Compton Tabulating are talkin' genres [see "Note: Still going through old items, editing and making ..."]... Sometime between the date this site become sentient and right this second, someone—a Newsletter editor, perhaps—ran a 3- or 4-part series explaining every last genre available in and generally applicable to WDC. Does anyone remember that? More importantly, can anyone figure out how to find it? I've done the best NL search I can figure out, and came up empty.

Kåre Enga in Montana - This isn't what I remember seeing, but it's a cool resource! Thank you!

and listed the ones he used at the end. Also he may have other blog entries on genre.
You're quite right - there is a newsfeed post that deals with this. It wasn't that long ago as I remember. By one of the good and greats, a purple or blue suitcase, and one of those serious males that often bestow their wisdom on us. Can't remember which one, sadly. But it might help to narrow your search.
Saw a guy wearing a t-shirt that says, "Peace, Love, and the Oxford Comma." Just gotta love grammatically correct clothing. *Laugh*

Grammatically correct clothing is always a joy to behold.
Gotta love it! *Laugh*

Please help! I can't stop laughing! *Rolling*

Greetings, all! I've penned "Dreams of love [Week 41 entry] for "Promptly Poetry Challenge (2023-2024) and while you're welcome to read and review my poem, reviews are not the point of this post.

Embedded in the text is the title of a song that was released as a single in 1983, and was the first-ever single released in the U.S. by this particular band. It hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, #1 in Canada, #2 on the UK Singles Chart (while spending a total of 6 weeks in the Top 5), and made the top 10 in a number of countries, including Australia.

Your mission, should you decide to accept it, is to find the title and ID the band. Do both and email your results to me by 11:59pm WDC Time on 9th June, and you'll win yourself 1000 GPs. Best of luck!

Hint: The song is hinted at in the title.

made its way onto your screens a couple of weeks ago (I'd need about a gram of plutonium for my flux capacitor to get back to the exact date and I'm about a gram short - ah well.). It's back and better than ever, in that there's now a trinket attached (hopefully - I've never tried that before). Got a minute to spare? Drop on by!

Writer_Mike - Do I have to give the trinket back, now? *Cry* I did reply to your poll. I'm the one that said "other." *Bigsmile*
🌸 pwheeler - love joy peace - Speaking of singing - I am the world's absolute worst singer - True story - At my wife's great grandmother's funeral, to show my respect and honor for the woman my wife absolutely adored, I sang, very softly, along with everyone else. Halfway through the song - pulled from her terrible grief, my wife leaned over to me and said, and I quote, "Stop singing."

I sang so horrendously; I pulled her out of her grief to shut me up.
Thank you for the trinket. *Smile*

Writer_Mike - It might be due to the issues from this morning. I'm pretty sure I didn't get them ALL wrong. *Laugh* But I keep playing these crossword puzzles on the NF and I'm not as smart as I thought I would was, lol! *Shock2*
I tried it and I got maybe half of them. I could have completed it, but I don't have the time to google answers. I think your clues are good though.
All wrong but feel some of them I should know of.
Happy anniversary!
