Had no idea we were smack dab in the middle of Texas Tourism Week -- but, yup, so says Gov. Haircut, who's sent the missus out to promote the state to the rest of the U.S. and A. with "a mobile, high-tech, interactive exhibit that uses the latest techniques in virtual reality." Says the TravelTex Web site, the exhibit's currently sitting over at Victory Park till tomorrow -- field trip!

... explore the beautiful Texas coastline on a virtual beach, listen as a holographic cowboy shares songs and stories in the western dome theater, splash your way across the state in a virtual kayaking adventure, and so much more.
Holographic Cowboy, incidentally, was also the name of first band in high school -- kind of a punk-pop-a-klezmer-country effort, featuring 23 members clad solely in tallesim and 10-gallon yarmulkes. --Robert Wilonsky
