Pac-Man Deals with 30

An interview with Pac-Man on his 30th birthday.
The Awl has an excellent interview with Pac-Man on his 30th birthday. Here's a short excerpt:
dotmuncher80: I'll let you in on a little secret: None of us move as quick as we used to. The other day Blinky had me stopped in an alley in the upper left and I was like, "Fuck, this is it," and I hear the dude WHEEZING. I was like, "You wanna sit this one out?" and he goes, "Dude, you don't even know." We are all running out of energy.
BALK: The power pellets don't help?
dotmuncher80: You mean the speed?
BALK: I thought they were just "power pellets."
dotmuncher80: Dude, they're speed. I am a 30-year-old SPEED ADDICT. Real accomplishment there. What a wonderful life I've made for myself.
Nice Friday afternoon reading.
