Fans of The Amazing Race Canada will recognise Natalie Spooner and
Meaghan Mikkelson. They did a hockey shooting challenge at the Winnipeg arena, just down the block, extremely
close to me. They did amazingly badly, even though they are gold medal-winning players, known for their scoring.
Should ballet dancers be given a score?
I pondered what it would be like to have people play Oak Games-style
games in a higher-end coffee shop for one day;
a typical Steve fantasy.
People win prizes when they win games against strangers.
I would not have brought this to your attention except for the social effect.
Instead of people being isolated or focused on their phones, you could show up, likely with
a friend or two, and there would be face to face
playing - and/or coffee drinking. There would be an incentive to deal with strangers.
This would not be structured, not a tournament, and games would not always merit prizes.
You don't have to know the game rules before you arrive. These games have simple rules.
For the past few years I've just been listening to the same old same old good songs.
Just recently I got into Mad Men era non-rock instrumentals.
There was also Chicago rock from the 1960s and bubblegum music.
When you think of late '60s music, what comes to mind? In the late '60s bubblegum music
ruled the charts.
