Saving the Planet

I'm dropping toast crumbs into my computer keyboard. I bought a posh little bluetooth one to save my macbook from precisely this eventuality. It's such a skinny little thing it's probably full of crumbs after just these few weeks.

On this day when we find ourselves maybe just slightly less doomed than we might otherwise have been (yes, yes, my glib reaction to pretty great news re. the US election), we also have the Euro release of LittleBigPlanet. My old friend, with whom I was eating iffy pizza at my favourite dingy restaurant only last night, designed a good portion of the game and so far as I can see the whole thing is infused with his infectious laugh. So far as I can see, since I don't own a playstation... I lent my gamecube to someone a few years ago and they never gave it back. This had the helpful effect of freeing me from a pathological addiction to Tony Hawks Skateboarding, but I digress... (now I play the melodeon, and insist it's not much different from a videogame).

Look over at Rex's blog for more about the LittleBigPlanet release. I spotted the most pathos infused comment beneath one of the youtube level films. It read:
"I'm not creative enough to play this game."
Fortunately it looks like a lot of people in Japan and the US already are.

...I'm making a lot of effort for a very subtle contribution (awful mic setup)! But everyone else sounds good.

And look how beautiful! There should hopefully be some film up soon where I'm joining in the music, and Flyboy is projected onto the side of the National Theatre, too:
