I am loving this Katamari hack I found on Now I can play Katamari Damacy any time I want even though I don’t have a PlayStation. Here it is, destroying my fb page. Awesome!

I am loving the after effects too! Only downside: the maximum number of objects it will pick up is 9000.

It has been a fun and productive weekend.

I finally went to see The Illusionist. It’s not quite as epic as The Triplets of Belleville (that could be in part, though, because that was the first Sylvain Chomet film I ever saw which is a mind-blowing experience), but I loved it. Just the combination of Chomet’s animation and Jacques Tati and M. Hulot brought back to life makes me happy. I won’t say anything more, lest I spoil anyone’s experience.

I also went to the Future Islands / Celebration concert. The ambience was magical. 2640 is always great, plus the sweet smell of cotton candy grabbed me immediately as I entered (because they were making fluffy blue cotton candy – mmmm), the ceiling was hung with white balloon cotton cloud clusters, and projections of flying birds were everywhere. Future Islands was quite a treat to see live, as I had been told. Celebration was great as always, though it felt a little low key after Future Islands.

The funny amusing event of my weekend was that a girl approached me at the Celebration show and asked to take a photo of me for her fashion blog. Not that I think I’m some completely fashionless twit, but a hipster I am not. It did make me feel less old. Yay!
