Value Village today was a plethora of cultural artifacts. While I wasn't able to find the cheap beads I sought (Mardi Gras beads for $1 each?), I did get a groovy pair of silver pumps in 8W that will do for my costume if I can't find some proper ballroom dance shoes. Although I picked up a copy of Dirty Minds, I skipped "Who Wants to Be a Celestial Heir" and "Catechic," the Mormon and Catholic trivia games (respectively). I'm tempted to go back, but since I figured it wouldn't really be any fun to play those games (I only know one Mormon Sunday school song - "I love to give my tithing" - and am completely ignorant about the catechism) I didn't get them at the time. Merchants of Venus possibly should have made the cut, but I figured if it takes 3 hours to play I probably won't bother. (FYI the "buccaneer" strategy had another success tonight, succeeding EVEN THOUGH my worthy opponent had both the wharf and the harbor! Most impressive.) I also found out today that they're having a "Cultural Examination of Games" at Richard Hugo house Friday and Saturday, and I might try to attend for a while, provided I make it to On The Boards to get a foot massage from hot dancer types.

The Highway Safety/Death Movies documentary was somewhat interesting. When my attention lagged, almost immediately the story switched to the rumors that the people that were making the death flicks were also doing pornos on the side (not true but the "police training" movies about homosexual activities in the men's bathroom of some small town in Ohio was worthy of a spot in The Lifestyle teste-shrivelling movie hall of fame). Unfortunately I was pretty non-plussed by the gore, even the shot of the baby. I guess seeing blood is just far more common these days than it used to be - a point they made during the movie, that only doctors or people who had seen combat ever saw scenes like they showed in those films back when they were made.
