Visual detail...

Scrabble is about the extent of my game-playing, but I totally love the idea of a Tenenbaums-inspired closet full of board games. This article about Wes Anderson's attention to visual detail and this article about the production of The Royal Tenenbaums are both really interesting.

This closet scene always made me chuckle for personal reasons. My dad and aunt always tell a story about a similar game closet that they had when they were younger. As the story goes, my grandma got so mad at them for not keeping it organized that she threw everything from the closet out into the hall, spilling all the pieces to all the board games, and then made them pick it up and put everything back in it's proper place. Classic "mom" story. I love it.

HAhaha! You only love the idea of a closet full of board games until you actually have one. Once you've amassed that many games you're always telling yourself how badly you need to clean out the game closet so you can finaly put the linens away properly;D

My husband and I are still trying to figure out what we want to do with our life as we approach forty. The only thing that we're sure of is that we want it to look just like The Royal Tenenbaums

I actually have that exact closet. Sometimes it makes me happy, but sometimes it does not...

god the metaphors you build when you talking about a game closet not to bring it to that level but, the idea of assigning a "closet" space to the compartmentalization of "gaming" spaces and then when you compound that with ideas of play in identity and role playing UNPACK THIS ONE.
