Press your spaceface close to mine

One of the points of interest on my mental map is to make my own Mortal Kombat-style game. I’m not so much about the button mashing, but I love me some fatalities. My game would probably be 80% fatality.

This is a real product.  Well, the label is real.  Actual results may remain in the second dimension.

Memo: the Importance of Being Mu.

Posted by halcyon on Feb 17, 2008 at 11:51 pm

Q: Does the dog have buddha nature or not?
A: Mu

Mu, from Japanese, means “without” or sometimes “emptiness.” In this context: “unask the question.”

Q: Can we travel back in time?
A: Mu

This question is invalid because it assumes that time has a “back” and a “fore.” Ask a Tralfamadorian.

Q: Is light a particle or a wave?
A: Mu

Categorical thinking, such as this, is usually delusional, and not the fun kind of delusional. Remember this when playing mind-chess on the fourth satellite of shoggoth and some mouthless muttering moon ape tries to pin you with a false duality. Just say “mu.”

Rock Me, Hirasawa

Posted by Sunday on Feb 17, 2008 at 8:17 pm

I like anime. I’m not a cosplay meganerd or anything, and admit to being overwhelmed by anime culture in general. I couldn’t even tell you which directors I like. I do, however, have a favorite anime composer: Susumu Hirasawa.

The mind behind the outstanding musical accompaniments to Millenium Actress (2002), Paranoia Agent (2004) and Paprika (2006), Hirasawa writes what I can only describe as orbital-colony mall beats. Orchestral, bombastic and melodic, Hirasawa is as much a performance artist as a musician: in one famous display he encouraged audience members to call cell phones on stage that had ringtones designed to sound in harmony to his music.

I think his finest work may be the theme song to Paprika, called “The girl in Byakkoya – White Tiger Field”. It is available for free download at

Teslakite doesn’t mention the best part: Hirasawa wants some of his music distributed for free as a protest against “the nations that are headed towards carnage while ignoring international law,” and specifically notes American’s war on Iraq.

Greetings, Programs!

Come in from the vacuum, pull up a hoverstool and stay a while.  I’m the Captain of this vessel, and my two crewmembers are here: BattleGate and Halcyon.  We have an Away Team that is currently Away (as they are wont to do), but they’ll come around and sit a while with us in time.

While you’re settling in I want to tell you a little about why we are here: we’d like very much to be your guide, at least for a short distance, because it pleases us.  For every collided particle that meets its fate, we’d like to be there with you.  Each time an awesome wizard battle destroys a mountain range, we’d like to be there with you.   When John Crichton (or possibly his clone) dies and makes you cry giant, messy boo-boo tears, we’d like to be there with you.  If you’ll have us, that is.

So!  Doesn’t it feel nice to get out of that sweaty suit?  We thought so.

With love,

The GalacticMu
