So guess who got an awesome present this holiday season? That would be me! Richard's Mom comissioned Parlee Chambers of gooddogfineart.com to do a portrait of Katamari. The painting is based on this picture and manages to hilariously capture Katamari's nuttiness.
So Richard rented me the Purr Pals game for the wii, in which you get to create and care for a virtual cat. I was able to customize my cat pretty effectively to look like Katamari. After playing all day (and having virtual Katamari win two virtual cat shows), I realized that it was kind of silly to spend all day playing with a digital version of my real cat... especially since my real cat is so much easier to take care of.
