99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall, 99 Bottles of Beer…


Tis the season of driving vacations, long flights– and thus, of pastime games.  Your correspondent suspects that license plate bingo is getting as stale for most readers as it is for him (besides which, it doesn’t work very well on an airplane).  So, a couple of alternatives:

The Double Feature Game: Players take turns imagining the marquee of a theater playing a particularly funny (or ironic or poignant) double bill; e.g.:

The Most Dangerous Game
Love Actually

Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner

Apocalypse Now

The Song Title Conversation Game: Players take turns suggesting two song titles, the second of which is a response to the first; e.g.,

“Who Do You Love,” George Thorogood — “Nobody But Me,” The Human Beinz

“Why Can’t This Night Go On Forever,” Journey — “Nothing Lasts Forever,” Maroon 5

“Make That Move,” Shalamar — “I’m Just Too Shy,” Jermaine Jackson

(TotH to Am I Right— “making fun of music, one song at a time”)

Hours of fun, Dear Readers; hours of fun!…

As we consider simply staying home, we might recall that it was on this date last year that Kodak ceded the victory of digital photography and announced that it would discontinue the production and sale of Kodachrome print and slide film, a tourist staple since 1935.
