Sat May 13 2000 16:39: Yesterday, the guys in the CSUA lounge were drooling over photos of the booth babes at E3. I'm ambivalent about the whole booth babe thing. Well, "ambivalent" is not the right word. I feel uncomfortable about it in two different ways. First is the standard way. Second is the way in which they remind me of the refrigerator booth babes of the 1950s and 1960s. "Miss Betty Firnesse and the new Westinghouse!" and all that. Refrigerators, cars, computer games: what happened here?
