The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Happy Birthday Atari 2600

The Atari 2600 video game console (they called it a "Video Computer System" back then) turns 30 years old this month.

Yep the classic Atari was released just in time for the 1977 holiday shopping season. The price? $199. Take that, Sony! Although If you adjust for inflation, that's about $650, making the PS3 almost look like a bargain.

The pic on the right is from GR's little video game museum. Which is really just an old 32" TV with a ton of consoles underneath. Currently the Genesis is hooked up. Behind the 2600 is the even older Atari Super Pong machine I found at a garage sale for $3.

But here's the depressing part. I remember playing the 2600, which officially makes me old. I didn't have one, but my friend Timmer, who was a year older than me did. We used to be entertained for hours by some truly bad games and dragons that looked like ducks.

Anybody else feel old?
