Katamari Damacy

Having just purchased a PS2 within the last month, you'll have to excuse Pagan and me for not joining the rallying cry for Katamari Damacy earlier. Well then, many belated yet cheery and heartfelt rah-rah's all around.

Keita Takahashi, creator of Katamari Damacy: "The idea behind Katamari Damacy just came to me. Itís not as if I had been walking around town, saw a large ball with something stuck to it, and suddenly was hit by inspiration. Current games suffer from a distinct lack of originality, and this sparked my desire to create something totally unique. Itís great that there are many types of videogames, but Iíve always wanted to create something different that can only be done in a game."

Keita Takahashi speaks on video here.

I can see Pagan wearing this hat:

Screenshots of Katamari Damacy 2, to be released in Japan later this year.

I have been conceptually excited about video games for years, but never found one I could actually get an interest in sitting down to play, until this one, recently:

Resident Evil 4

Who knew killing zombies could be so frickin' fun? This game is gorgeously designed and universally acclaimed as years ahead of it's time. If you want to see the future of gaming, see Katamari Damacy, Resident Evil 4, Electroplankton and Nintendogs, the "pet project" of legendary game designer Shigeru Miyamoto.

Photosapiens

I'm pretty sure that the above photo is of a man, the adam's apple being the most obvious clue . . . immediate associations: the Crying Game (first saw this as a sneak at the MPAA theatre in downtown DC, remember the moment the room gasped), Pedro Almodovar, who seems to paint crossdressers and trannies in the softest light, and my own uncle turned aunt.

I haven't seen my Uncle/Aunt since the early eighties, at best. He was married at least once beforehand, had two kids, was disowned by his father and son, at least. He used to sell and collect cars in south Jersey before ending up in the casino business like many who live there. From what I hear, being over six feet tall and wide, he doesn't make that convincing of a woman, and hasn't had much luck with the guys. I wonder why he didn't just go gay, it seems like he would have gotten laid more, but what do I know about this type of thinking? I think everyone should be allowed to be who they want to be, but I still don't think having your penis lopped off makes you a woman. I don't think it's that easy, by a long shot. Perhaps I put women on a pedestal: what mere man could become one?

Ohio Democratic Party: Bush Stole the Election



Interesting, Air America has been playing ads for the democratic party of Ohio, which state: "Blackwell gave Bush Ohio." So if the Ohio democratic party believes that the 2004 election was stolen by Blackwell--a Bush operative now running for governor (what's his campaign slogan, anyway? "I stole Ohio for Bush so don't vote for me--what the fuck do I care? I'll get your vote anyway you stupid slab of meat.")--then they believe that, effectively, Bush stole the 2004 election (in addition to the 2000 one).

If the official Ohio democratic party believes that Bush stole the 2004 election and openly says so, why does the national democratic party not follow suit?

(A cursory look at the Ohio dems website unveils no mention of the stolen election, either. So they only want to admit it on Air America?)

The best place in Seattle to get your PS2 modded (so that it can play Japanese games and dvds of any global region code). In the Chinatown district across from the old Uwajimaya.

While the picture above is by Ryan Heshka--I love it's colors, old sci-fi pulp cover adoration (of the babe with a gun subcategory, also a fav) and pop asian notes--Katie pointed in particular to another artist featured in tonight's Roq show: Andrew Brandou. Katie Kurtz writes: "Andrew Brandou's work is kick ass. Drawing inspiration from the Situationist Internationale, Chinese propaganda, and more, this is political art at its finest -- subtle, humorous, engaging..." See the picture she selected of Brandou's here. The 2 other artists also showcased at the Roq tonight are Keith Weesner and Dale Sizer.

Needless to say, among all these links, there is much arty goodness to go around.

"This we know. The earth does not belong to man; man belongs to the Earth. This we know. All things are connected like blood which unites one family. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth. Man did not weave the web of life; he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself."
