Assimilation is complete

Remember that Super Nintendo commercial from the early '90s featuring kids eating, drinking, sleeping and, as one unfortunate's hands pixilated, being Super Nintendo? At times that's how it feels to be a part of CineVegas—that these 10 days leave films, parties and Red Bull haunting your dreams and dripping from your pores. There are signs and banners; a million television, print and online previews, news stories and reviews; people, people and more people. And not even breakfast is safe, as each morning in the lounge, they arrive: a dozen-plus flat boxes from Krispie Kreme containing chocolate-glazed cream-filleds, each as addictive as the atmosphere and festooned with the oversized X celebrating CineVegas' 10th anniversary on top. All that's left is for CineVegas toilet paper to complete the scheme.
