Sony PS2 Ads

I thought these pictures were kind of cool. The color and tone seems to be touched up very nicely. I think they'd make great posters.

In order to raise the spirits of an Italian prince burdened by the cares of his position, a musician created for him a cat piano. The musician selected cats whose natural voices were at different pitches and arranged them in cages side by side, so that when a key on the piano was depressed, a mechanism drove a sharp spike into the appropriate cat’s tail. The result was a melody of meows that became more vigorous as the cats became more desperate. Who could not help but laugh at such music? Thus was the prince raised from his melancholy.

Real Rhapsody

Oh man. If only I had bothered to start an account earlier. Real Rhapsody is a gift from god to all the music lovers in the US (hopefully the entire world soon). Music discovery is as easy as 1-2-3 now. I've always preached that music is about sharing; real rhapsody embraces that attitude. Now this a service that provides people with a good cause.

I think there are many things one can make in this world. Your life is your playground. The breadth of the sandbox pends on your motivations to stretch it. Play with it enough, the sand will spill out eventually.
I expect a lot out of myself. In fact, I do so so often I feel like I lose grasp of what I set out to do for myself in the first place. There is so much to learn and do, and not enough time to share. Ever since I was kid, my parents have always reminded me that 'Time is Money'. Not in the way in which we should be materialistic bastards, but emphasizing that time is golden. Lose your time and it will never be yours again.

That cloud game

I'm really feeling this cloud game - a 2006 IGF Student showcase winner by a bunch of USC students. The concept is simple but pure awesome; fly around and herd clouds while you listen to a soothing soundtrack. It's relaxing and meditative.

# noob, newb - may imply either one of the following:

* Simply a short form for "newbie", a person who is new to the game or unskilled in play. Antonym: pro, godlike
* Sometimes used to address a player who doesn't listen to advice, strive to improve, or are rude to other players.
* Insulting another player by comparing him to someone who has just started playing.

I spent CNY in Vancouver. Lots of good food, family, and snowboarding. Ahhh. Vancouver.
