Katamari Damacy [Apr. 9th, 2005|02:38 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick
This morning: hours upon hours at DMV, accomplishing little. More on that later. Too tired.

pizza/meetings at work. Wrote a sysadmin tool.

Spent the evening with jwz and others. First a Long Now lecture on cities and world population, then Katamari Damacy, then dinner at Bacar, then more Katamari Damacy.

Katamari Damacy is the best game ever.

Cole, if you're not using that PS2, I want it back! :-)

Dina's friend Tara is in town. They did girl stuff all night. After I told them all about the rolling game (had forgot the name) they immediately wanted to play old-school Super Mario Bros, so I hooked up the scsi-modded xbox so they could play. But now they just crashed.

Every time you say "sysadmin tool", the first thing that springs to mind is a guy who babysat the boxen at one of my old colleges, who was the dictionary definition of "tool".

the california DMV is remarkably efficient I've found, they just need about 5 times as many people working as they have. I think I spent something like 6+ hours total in waiting there to register my vehicle and change my DL. the time I spent actually talking tc people was probably less than 30 mins alltogether.

Nice to meet you as well. And thanks for the ride home!

I'd be ordering the game if I had a PS2. I'll just have to go play Jamie's for now.

Hey, you can have it back. Sounds like you'd play it more. I don't know how I'd get it to you though.

I can't compare it to others in the series because it was my first, but I was entertained. In conclusion: people in cities have less babies (1.85/woman) because babies are a liability in the city, not an asset like out in the fields, more people are moving to the cities because it sucks less, and the world population will stop growing soon here and start declining. We're a couple years away from the tipping point of over 50% of the world population being urban.

I can feel the cosmos!

(Those kids probably couldn't feel much of anything, considering how stoned they sounded.)

dude, you gotta go to the DMV like 5 minutes before they close. They have to let you in and then that automatically shortens the line to as many people as can only fit in the building. I always do this! It rocks! I highly recommend it on your next ill-fated trip.

My friend managed to get me the soundtrack to KD for my birthday. Best coding music ever. Amusing side note: the soundtrack is more expensive than the game.
