Culturing up this place (a bit)

My workday currently consists of scanning a seemingly endless amount of legal paperwork and financial documents, but every now and then something odd will come along to break up the day. A few days ago it was a book from an art museum. I spent a good deal of time browsing it (and not "working").

"Drunken Silenus" by Jusepe de Ribera

It's like I'm looking in a mirror (I often party with Satyrs). There were a few other paintings that caught my eye, but I can't seem to find them online. It's been almost a year since I last went to the Columbus Museum of Art and may check it out again shortly. Anyway, it's nice to have the monotony of work broken up periodically, even if my daily quota suffers.

I went to a party last night (Buckeye football, BBQ, and Jager bombs) and totally dominated another game of "Shout About Movies" AND a few rounds of "Scene It (TV Edition)." Yep, I'm also a pop culture master. I need a life.

Oooh the tv edition. I only have the movie edition.

We played a few rounds before the opposing team got frustrated and quit (I had a couple of other trivia nrrrds on my team). So then we put it on "party play" for a loooooong time.

It seems that there are more and more specific DVD games out now (Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, etc.). Once they make a "Simpsons" one, hoo-boy. I'm all over that.

I have Simpsons Monopoly and Simpsons Clue. And Simpsons Life!

I love when games get into party play mode. Balderdash is one of the best ones. Seriously, who cares about winning when instead you get to watch your friends try to read your ridiculous definitions without laughing?

Speaking of pop culture, apparently Link Wray has died. Now, I don't really know anything about him, but apparently, he was the "Father of the Power Chord." So he's the inspiration behind a generation of modestly-talented rhythm guitarists clad in Spandex hitting a power chord, crouching, and pointing out over the audience.

Somewhere, Paul Stanley is weeping.

law fairy - I've got a bunch of Monopolies: NYC, Star Wars, "Peanuts," etc. Yet, I rarely play the game (not that I don't want to, just the opportunity doesn't arise). Scrabble has taken our family by storm, though.

They've got a Simpsons version of "Operation" now! It's only a matter of time before a kick-ass DVD-based trivia game comes out.

dubin - I'm sorry for your loss.
