So the post count has dropped severely. There are a bunch of reasons for this, one of them is what you see before you.

Its a fun little 3D video I made with a title I am not sold on yet. Click the image for a link to the .MOV file.

If you have any better for a title, please let me know. Enjoy!

edit: would probably help if the link worked, yah?

This soap makes me excited to get all dirty, just so I can wash myself off!

According to my girlfriend, this Japanese soap is not only very old but very famous (the brand, not the soap itself.) She was even able to sing the commercial for me (we’re seeing a counselor, don’t worry.)

If anybody has any info on this soap, along with any of the old commercials, I hope you will extend the information to myself. This stuff is excellent! I think I am going to buy a box and bring it home to my friends.

one quiet night in nagai by +peter

The Osaka day was very humid and I had escaped to my micro apartment with the ambition of actually getting some design work done. My companion for the day was the air-conditioner in my window.

air-conditioner – “craaaank, CLANG, chug chug chug chug … blorp, SLAM!”
me – “Shut the fuck up! All I want is your cold air!”

It’s a delicate relationship at best. I decided it might help if I let the air-conditioner rest while I sought the coolness provided by the now evening, Nagai outdoors. I grabbed my keys and cigarettes and headed out.

How do I put this lightly? No, I DON’T want to get drunk tonight and I have a variety of reasons why I shouldn’t! Starting off, this is a Wednesday night, as in I have school all day tomorrow. Thursdays equal academic death. I need sleep to prepare for my collegiate suicide. Parties and sleeping usually end in humiliating pictures and dry erasable penises.

I guess the threat of phallic shapes on my face are not enough to keep me from doing what I know is wrong. I guess knowing what I am about to do is wrong is also not enough to stop me from doing it. Thus the strawberry red margarita hits my face and I begin my descent into sugary debauchery.

At least my intentions were noble. Work more on the game, that was the plan. Steph and I had our little cave rigged up and we were pumping out code like it was coming from an assembly line. She handled the camera and controls while I tinkered with level assets. Development was running smoother than something that was really smooth. It came together in more graceful prose than iambic pentameter. She was William, and I was a knock off Shakespeare.

Here is an interesting little gem that has just come through the tubes.

The game is called Limbo, and I want it.

I find the aesthetic quality of this game to be inspiring and sublime. Join that with the aged to perfection, side scrolling genre, you will find your computer wrapped in an indescribable super nova of god like brilliance. There is also a short trailer, but it only summons more questions that cannot be answered.

Digging around the interweb, I have found the masterwork is being created by an industry veteran, Arnt Jensen, a Danish artist and game designer who is/was looking to hire some C++ coders (Steph! Its your calling!)

Check it out! Now lets all hold our breath together and maybe it will come faster, than the second coming.

The Fountain by +peter

So I totally want to see this movie.

The Fountain is directed by Darren Aronofsky, who also directed Requiem for a Dream.

It looks beautiful and deals with immortality on an epic scale. Plus its got Hugh Jackman, who is great at everything he does. I imagine Hugh could make painting fingernails badass.

I’m gonna be a total schmuck and hotlink you directly to the 720p Quicktime trailer on Apple.com Right click and do that “Save as” stuff if you dont want to view it in your browser.
