Started in the NW with 2D: ARE (“___ we done here?”) and 16A: FENGSHUI (Pagoda placement consideration, often).
I love related clues. Today were 13A: DRNO (First James Bond film) and 68A: SPY (James Bond, e.g.).
I never did understand the inner puzzle. The clue is at 54A: PAIROFJOKERS (Cards #53 and #54 in a deck… or a hint to the answers to 19-, 26-, 35-, and 47-Across). Those answers are: 19A: SHORTWINTERS (Climate feature of equatorial countries); 26A: WHITEHOPE (Savior, in popular parlance); 35A: CRYSTALBALL (Prognostication tool); 47A: ROCKCANDY (Clumps of sugar on a stick). Perhaps someone can explain this to me? [I did eventually figure this one out …]
My favorite clue of the day was 8D: MAUNALOA (It last erupted in 1984). I had to answer some crossers to determine if this might instead have been Mauna Kea, which is a puzzle solving tool that I love.
