Push play: A Texas town has pledged $1 million to turn a city museum into the nation’s first video game museum to house a collection that includes vintage consoles and one of the first Pong games.
To show the level of realism planned for its dioramas, the museum is looking for volunteers to play Madden NFL 2000 in a beat-up recliner in their underwear, a bowl of Cheetos within reach.
Maybe Washington or Colorado has a light: Even before Oregon votes on a measure to legalize marijuana, state officials are making plans on how to implement the law. “They’re trying to not get caught flat-footed,” one official said.
Or in the vernacular: “Trying to not come to the party with primo weed and nothing to smoke it with.”
