Yes, but not because it's EEEEvil; missionaries are supposed to stay focused
on spiritual things.  No "worldly" music, no popular fiction, no movies or
television, etc.  Though missionaries who stray a little from this rule
aren't generally punished.  Jacob bought a bunch of German translations of
fantasy books and some rock music tapes while he was there in '88-'90.

Mostly I just like to yank the Utah missionaries' chains.  They don't
usually know if someone they're approaching is LDS or not, so they assume
everyone isn't.  I told a pair of sisters that I was a Proffitt and they
about fell over in shock.  :)
