"Let's Play Pong"

Today is Atari’s 40th anniversary. It was 1972 when those honkin’ huge-ass, faux-wood-paneled PONG cabinets started proliferating in pizza parlors and bars and pinball arcades all over California, their glowing consoles featuring simplistic two-dimensional graphics representing a two-player table tennis game. While PONG wasn’t the earliest video arcade game, it was the first truly successful one. And the rest is history. And that’s one to grow on. And knowing is half the battle.

And now is the time on Curlhauz when we stomp punch kick derp DANSE.

    While we are linking music videos about Atari’s Pong let us not forget Air’s Kelly Watch the Stars.

    I cannot begin to tell you how happy that video made me. Now I’m feeling all nostalgic for Atari and Bunker…

    I have been struggling to find some way to express the inner conflict this video produces, and I still am coming up short.
