An improvement on the Gravity gun

Sdtrk: ‘Baby portable rock’ by Pizzicato five

This accursed heat and humidity is quite literally cooking me where I stand. It’s either making me lazy, or cranky, or lazy and cranky. Or sweaty. None of those states are an option.
So in the interim, you’ll have to settle for this as a post: after we watched my copy of the first series of ‘Look around you‘ (brilliant show, highly recommended), Derek showed me the trailer for the game ‘Portal’ last night whilst I was round to his, and it’s pretty fecking incredible.

It’s made by Valve, the people who created the Half-life series of video games. The graphics and concept are very ace, I have to say, but I could never actually play something like that. Apart from more than likely having to splash out for a whole new computer with go-faster stripes that would be capable of running it, a game such as this would undoubtedly bring my brain to a screeching halt. HOW DO I SHOT HOLE; that sort of thing.

More errant writing when it cools down, or when something significant happens; one or the other

    jesu christi is hot outside, yes?
    The video you show does nothing to cool things down. Go shower AGAIN.

    I dunno; I’d go up to someplace that had an industrial freezer whilst armed with that portal device, and come and go at my leisure (when I needed more reading material, or when I needed to pee, more than likely).

    I just noticed you were listening to Pizzicato Five.
    They’re one of my favorite Japanese groups.
    My favorite is ‘Twiggy-Twiggy’ and second is ‘Go, Go Dancer’

    I agree, Pizzicato five is a fine band, a fine band. Well, ‘was’, as they’ve broken up. Nevertheless!
    ‘Nonstop to Tokyo’ has to be one of my favourite songs, as it was part of the soundtrack to the fantastical trip that Derek, Jeff, Mari & I made to Toronto last year, and ‘Lesson 3003’ is great as well. And their videos were completely fab.. Mmm, Maki. 🙂
