About Houen, at the Design Gallery.

Update: The show featured ceramic pottery in the form of dishes. Not really my taste.

PlayStation Spot

52593339_a2cb157cf5

At the Ginza Sony Building, where you can try out new PSP games.

Update: I had a blast (the most fun I’ve ever had at the Sony Building) and was probably there for close to an hour playing games. The wireless PlayStation Spot works like a charm, and I was able to try out 5 games on my PSP (you just select “Game Sharing” in your menu system), like a new Megaman game (very old-school, quite possibly a remake of the one of the original games, but with cute updated graphics — I had a lot of fun playing this, and will probably buy it when it comes out) and a sort of MADE IN WARIO-type game (I can’t remember what it was called) that featuresd little wacky mini-games. But the true standout was a game called LOCO ROCO. This is by far the most innovative game I’ve seen on the PSP, and I can definitely see it gain a KATAMARI DAMACY-like cult following. The game is so simple to play, yet deliciously addictive. It’s sort of like a platformer, but your character is a blob, and you tilt the screen with the L/R buttons to make it roll around (and holding back on both buttons and letting go creates a spring-like jump). As you roll around, there are certain spots which can only be traversed by calling forth lightning that disintegrates your blob, leaving you with a bunch of tiny blobs, which you can then re-stick together. Sure, it sounds weird, but it was fun as hell, and the graphics are a joy to look at. I cannot wait to get the full version of this (out in 2006).

GGG

At the GGG for this month’s show.

Update: The show, “Laboratoires CCCP,” was a real letdown for me — not really the kind of graphic work that I enjoy seeing. It’s probably the quickest I’ve ever checked out an exhibition at the GGG — I was out after 5-10 minutes.

NWA Ad

The new NWA ad campaign.

Update: The reason I took a picture of this is that I find it interesting how they’ve based the compaign around the use of the QR barcode. Just goes to show how popular it’s become — pretty much every ad you see includes a QR barcode that leads to more info.

In honor of Chin Music Press’ new Canned Coffee site, here’s my current fave — yeah, it’s not in a can, but still. What are you drinking?

Cut Again

Fresh cut. I really should get cuts more often, I always feel so good afterwards — I’m just not big on going to the salon.
