I Love Katamari (on PSP)!

February 11th, 2006

Katamari Poster - Prince Ru|3z, even as a little stuffed toy - so cool

I can’t get that song outta my head! Naanaaa, na na na na na na na, katamari damacy . . . Na Na! nananananana . . . and on it goes. But I love it. It’s especially fun when the katamari is over 50meters and prince is rolling up buildings. I only wish I could find a translation somewhere online, I (we, buds at work have it too) have the Japanese import version for psp (we just couldn’t wait the one month for the english version). Let me know if you find a translation. Oh, hit left and circle (at the same time) twice to do a 180 around your katamari. And, I think the raft is where you go for multiplayer (the table is for infrastructure (I think)).

Official Site

update! wait a second, I know the internet better than that – use google translate on the official katamari page!

update 2 it’s so obvious now, to do multiplayer, the host sits at the table and the others go on the raft to the hosts island! but of course! Thank you google translate.

Hollywood Hills Run

February 11th, 2006

Had a nice walk/run in my neighborhood today. I didn’t realize that Hollywood Blvd continues on west past Laurel Canyon (up into the Hollywood hills). Today I used the OwnZone setting on my heart rate monitor. It never let me run for more than 2 minutes straight because I would be over my target heart rate. Looking forward to doing the same run/exercise but running the whole time and staying within that heart rate range.

  • Total Time: 1h08min50s
  • Distance: 4.1 mi
  • Heart rate avg: 83% / 159 bpm
  • Heart rate max: 99% / 190 bpm
