‘So stick your fingers in your ears, then’ / Waka waka what?

typed for your pleasure on 30 December 2004, at 8.47 pm

Just finished watching ep.33 of Zeta Gundam. Damn, that show’s ace. I’m watching it in the original Japanese with subtitles, cos American voice actors drive me completely insane, but they needed to slap on big ol’ SPOILER ALERTS whenever the ‘next episode summary’ comes on. The subtitles will say something ambivalent about such-and-such character, but I’m listening to the audio, and I’ll hear ‘Such-and-such character shin da (dies)‘, and I’m like, GodDAMNIT!!@

Also — Patrick, you’ll dig this in particular — I don’t know if this is genius or madness, or mad genius, or genmadniusness. Witness: Pac-Mondrian.

‘Pac-Mondrian closes the perceptual distance between fine art and video games by combining Piet Mondrian’s Modernist masterpiece “Broadway Boogie Woogie” with Toru Iwatani’s classic video game Pac-Man.’

Well, if that isn’t the damnedest thing. Alright, now I want to see a version of DigDug filtered thru Warhol. Or better still, Street fighter in Lichtenstein-style… o, wait

    Aah, the tragic life and times of cel paint… I see why you are pissed off at the tip-offs. I’m not one to talk at all… here I am, still broke up over Eva. Sob. Sob. I broken now.

    Yeah, like we said Wolfgang, if you want the only ending for Eva to be ‘the happy one’, then don’t watch the movies.

    Actually, you MUST watch the movies, as they’re six kinds of ace. Especially the part where SPOILER ALERT

    That Pac-Mondrian thing is *awesome*
    I tried to play it (at work, no less), but I think something is screwy with my plugins and it won’t work 🙁

    I think it runs off HotMedia or some alternate universe applet. It’s fun when it works, though.

    Play it at home! You don’t want your bosses catching you playing that when you should be working! They might fire you! Or EAT YOU! AAAH, the IRONY!
