Puzzle Notes

Dear Friends:

We hope you're having a restful holiday and we're happy to spice it up with a themeless from Adam Aaronson, titled "All-Star Lineup". Adam says this one is about the same difficulty as Guitar Hero III's hard mode. We agree (although you can enjoy this puzzle even if you don't have the greatest sense of rhythm).

Adam is a senior at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign studying [REDACTED], but he spends most of his time thinking about words and playing [REDACTED] trombone. This puzzle is so aggressively Adam, it even contains his initials as fill. See if you can find it!

Cheers and be well,

Ada, Sid, Max, Quiara, Chris & the expanded AVCX crew | @avcxword | @lilavcx | @avcxcryptic | @avcxplus | @avcxtrivia
