Not Nick Nolte's Diary, Malibu, California
November 22, 2004


Up early today. I haven't mentioned it, but I've been spending a lot of time in front of Manolo's latest video game. Apparently it doesn't actually belong to Manolo, but to a friend. Whomever it may belong to, what's important is the mesmerizing visceral quality of this game. The object is to assemble a big ball of detritus from the floor of a house. You roll your ball around, picking up rare coins, erasers and sushi. I know, that sounds like a Saturday afternoon with Sean Penn, but it's quite arresting. To close the deal, the joystick vibrates with each object you collect. It's called Katamari Damashi and it's a trip. I feel like Pauline Kale now, but that's my review. I can't play much more, my back won't put up with it.
