freestyle with slightly odd dimensions...well, even dimensions, if you want to be technical. no quad stacks, as the title might imply, but a pair of double stacks, all fourteen letters long. and all pretty fun, if you ask me. the clue for the first of these (16A) references the below gif.

today was 18A for me (and i suspect a good number of other people as well). even if it's not, i hope y'all find this puzzle enjoyable, and a distraction from whatever weather you have in your neck of the woods.
errata: the clues for 37-across and 40-across cross-reference the wrong clue numbers, mea culpa.

totally forgot to put out a puzzle on the weekend because it's winter break and i've lost track of what day it is. also meant to put this one out closer to christmas. oh well.
important: erik agard has recently made a post that is well worth checking out. gender inequality is one of the many issues in crossworld today, and it's something we need to address. i'm committing to doing what i can to increase visibility for female constructors--whether it's test solving, collaborating, or just advice in general, i'm glad to help. and so are many other talented constructors out there. (e.g. see erik's post, or the below tweet, etc.)
in other news, i've recently seen i, tonya, and besides adding it to my wordlist, i'm wholeheartedly recommending it (as well as the sufjan song below, because i have an aesthetic to uphold)If you're a woman who constructs or aspires to construct xwords and you'd like to collaborate, publish a guest puzzle on my site, or just want advice on getting into the business, please get in touch! NY resolution is to do what I can to help alleviate gender imbalance in xwords— Will Nediger (@bewildering_ly) January 6, 2018
