Nice! Keita Takahashi, the man behind Katamari Damacy, and his wife Asuka Sakai have started up a blog, Uvula.

This is a few years old, but worth digging up. Beautiful machinery. Great, great, great.
The first clip came from a list of ten amazing sounds here.
Here are a couple highballs to ‘beat the heat’ with. One not in the book, one modified.
1 ½ oz Brandy
¾ oz Triple Sec
1 oz Apricot Juice OR One Apricot, Muddled
Dash of Peychaud’s Bitters
Build in a short glass over ice.
I was supremely pleased with how the subtle apricot and the bitters came together so well. It’s not a light drink per-se, but definitely summer.
Pink Gin Tonic
2 oz Gin
4 Dashes Angostura Bitters
Cut the lime into wedges. Build in an ice-filled short glass.
Ok, I’ll say strait up that this is not better than a regular gin & tonic, but its worth experimenting with. And if you’ll let me wax poetic about it, I’d say its like sipping on British Rangoon. Tastes imperial.
I would just like to introduce you all to my new kitten. She is possibly the most playful, affectionate (to an absurd degree) and superlative cat in all of Kings County (or at the very least the 94th precinct). She was rescued from what is essentially death row for kitties and, as I type this, she has gone from climbing up my shirt to sitting calmly on my stomach. She seems to be reading what I am typing. I am getting a little self-conscious.
Her name was Alice when we got her and it might stay that way, although we are going to give it a week. She is known as a Hemmingway polydactyl because she has an extra toe on each paw (which makes her slightly more clumsy and more adorable). Apparently Hemmingway wrote about a colony of polydactyl cats once. Anyhow, I just thought she needed to be introduced to the blogosphere. She will soon be a money making youtube hit, I’m sure of it.
