REVIEWS: "Bingo with the Indians" & "Rebel Voices"

Need a break from turkey and/or family today?

Then check out not one, but two bite-sized reviews of mine in this week's Voice and Time Out:

Adam Rapp's Bingo with the Indians and the Culture Project's Rebel Voices.

Let's just say that of the two, the first is more "rebellious" and the latter more bingo-family-friendly.

Happy Football Day to all.

Gee hi, Mr. Popularblog.

Thank you for saying my blog was "interesting." You must be a theatre fan! How nice of you.

I'm actucally quite content with the number of my visitors--which no doubt you have pored over with as much care as the rest of my content. Therefore I will NOT take your advice to visit your site--and I strongly urge the rest of my putrid few visitors to avoid your spam-like "" domain as well.

There are rumours that bingo is being banned in the US, is that true?
In the UK, bingo has suffered in recent months due to the ban on smoking in public places, causing smoking customers to either go outside for a cig and face the harsh cold (not a good move for the aged) or stay at home and not play, thus reducing the Bingo Gossip. But banning bingo completely is ridiculous! It is a very mind form of gambling at the most! If you’re going to ban bingo then the lottery has to go too surely? Isn’t that gambling?
Bingo is a number game, based on pure luck, so really it’s not even similar to other gambling games such as poker and sports betting. It’s just like buying a lottery ticket just you have to get more numbers! So then why is it such a problem? Its just takes away the older generations entertainment while the younger generations indulge in perfectly “legal” things like DRUGS! Can they not see which the bigger problem is?

Um, thank you Anon, for enlightening us about this disturbing development in world affairs.

But I'd hate to break it to you: Mr. Rapp's latest opus has little to do with the game itself. I agree, though, that what we need now is a bona fide Epic Bingo Tragedy to raise public awareness on the issue.
