Beyond the Major Arcana of the Dolls

How delicious is the Beyond The Valley of the Dolls Tarot Deck? Even the man who wrote the movie gave the deck two thumbs up.

The deck is by Howard Hallis, who is currently working on a picture of everything (previously on MeFi). He claims to have also sent the cards to filmmaker Russ Meyer: "He called me from his house in Palm Springs and loved them so much he wanted me to come by and have lunch with him. He told me to bring my girlfriend too... especially if she had big tits. Unfortunately, I still haven't made it up his way."

Like the film itself, these are better as a concept than reality...

How do you know unless you print them out and do a reading? My guess is they'd BLOW YOUR MIND BABY

I'd be wary using this deck for readings. I tried it once and the sheer power knocked me stone cold comatose. When I awoke I was married to homosexual and was addicted to gin and Seconal.

Granted, this is how I wake up every day, but I think the cards were a factor.

parts of speech are my greatest enemies.

I'd think that could pose an obstacle to traditional homosexuality, which often features imaginative uses for parts of speech.

Also, where is the link that let's you buy these (or print them out)? I have to get a wedding present and these would be perfect for the bride.

Can't be used without the minor arcana... just sayin'. Great job on the majors, though -- no question!

Last night I stayed up late playing poker with Tarot cards. I got a full house and four people had sex with extremely large breasted girls.
