    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)

  • 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.

  • I was using VELVET ELVIS as a key to find the letter to extract from those answers
