    It's time once again to flex your brains and expand your vocabulary folks. Same rules as always; post your guesses in the following manner:

    1 [across/down] - [answer].

    The answer sheet will be updated as we go so refer back to the OP periodically. Good luck and don't be a cheatah!

    *EDIT* - It appears I picked a bit of a goofy one this week. Several of the words are actually longer than what they appear to be and it has to do with the subject of the crossword "Sound Connections". This means that if a word has this "sound" in it as part of the answer, it's actually longer than it appears because one of the squares contains all the letters of the "sound" like in the following example: [pop][c][o][r][n]

    Since this is a strange one I will let you know that the "sound" in question for this crossword is RING, and will be annotated on the answer sheet with an asterisk - *. Sorry for the confusion.

    So, it's just a crossword with rebuses? Giving away the squares makes it much easier. Alright, I'll get busy.

    Alright, I think I've got it all done.

    If you're having trouble getting started, then 16 down is IndependenceHall
    And as an example, 32 across is sy[ring]es
    It would have been a lot harder if he didn't give that stuff away

    16 down - correct
    32 across - correct

    Definitely would have been a lot harder. The crosswords I pick tend to be hard enough under normal conditions. I felt it necessary to drop in the clue, otherwise it might have been more hassle than what it was worth for most.
