The random news in Ben's life.

Well, it kept me up until 4am again (argh!) but I killed off Psychonauts finally. Fun game. The last level realllyyy makes you hate the camera auto-follow, though. Overall I definitely recommend it. Fun and a real visual treat.

In other news, some poor guy called me up this afternoon, really earnest, trying to exhort me to go vote. I was impressed with his bravery and willingness to do difficult, dirty work. So I didn't yell at him or hang up on him or anything. I just explained that I see little to admire in a party that seems to roll over for despotic government every time, and that I think the people of the USA deserve what's coming to them. And since I'm leaving the country anyway, I don't see much point in trying to steer it. Turns out he had been an expat himself, came back from Costa Rica because they hate all the rich gringos moving there and driving out the natives. Interesting little chat. I hope I didn't dishearten the guy too much. He said he had a lot of other people to call.

Finally, on the subject of voting, South Park did a horrible yet hilarious Puffy-esque send up of the pro-voting mentality, entitled "Vote Or Die, Bitch!" So, you know... just thought I'd share. ;]
