If I use a proper name as a seed, which I did here, it’s gotta be one of two things for me: either (a) it’s an extremely well-known name that hasn’t been used in a grid before (which is hard to find) or (b) it’s a name that’s just enough on the fringes of consciousness that many people won’t immediately remember it but will go “oh yeah, I’ve heard of that from somewhere!” when they see it. I much prefer to use the latter, and 33-Across I think will fit into that category. For my other seed, I used an entry that fits into one of my other favorite categories of seed entries: something you do or hear about all the time but didn’t know there was a term for.
Thanks so much to all who’ve left a tip! It’s much appreciated, believe me.
