In the depths of backwater Maryland, amongst nondescript shopfronts and a combination Taco Bell/Dunkin' Donuts, lies a video game arcade called Game Mania. In one corner, lit only by screens glowing with the neons of '80s classics such as Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, and Tetris, a flaxen-haired woman with calloused hands sits on a pink plastic child-size chair. She whispers softly to herself, neatly cutting out geometric fabric shapes and stitching them together. She occasionally stops to inspect her handiwork, carefully spreading it across the linoleum floor. It’s a beautiful quilt, inspired by the games that surround her. "Dang," she says, dusting her hands off on her jeans, "Bitches love brunch."
