    Left side: (6 letter answers?)


    Contribute (2 wds) KICK IN (L) -> C
    Hans with a counter GEIGER (T) -> R
    Raised a child: REARED? (S) -> Y

    Argentinian Lowlands: PAMPAS (V) -> P
    Scott Baio role: CHACHI
    Tasting like Allium cepa: ONIONY? (T) -> Y


    Right side (5 letter answers?) 


    Aritst James (TMBG wants you to meet him): ENSOR (matches SENSED) (I)
    Cabs or amatuers:
    Clinton Deputy Chief of Staff Harold: ICKES (L)
    Daughter of Tantalus: NIOBE (this probably matches ONIONY if the title is any indication) (T)
    ____-fartsy: ARTSY (matches TARTAN) (V)
    Heavy shoes: CLOGS  (I)
    Largest single digit cube: EIGHT (matches GEIGER) (T)

    Theatre worker: ACTOR?
    Word on a ticket: ADMIT? (oh, MADMAN) (E)
    XBox Snowboarding Game: AMPED (matches PAMPAS) (V)


     

  • Based off what I have so far, I'm sure SHUT UP is wrong.

  • Each of the lines for matching passes through exactly one of the letters in the center. Adding that info to the post two above.

  • CRYPTO OR A PAY?
  • I was using VELVET ELVIS as a key to find the letter to extract from those answers
