There wasn’t going to be a day 7, I hid the movie from her reach, but Lizzie’s potty training is going so well (First day of no accidents, she deserves many highfives) I decided she can have her movie.
Hiding it didn’t stop her from asking. She’s been quoting it, asked me not to scan her, now attempts to sing along to FOB.

All of your favorite Parappa and Lammy characters played live in NY and we were there to see it!
At the Roxy Theater in New York City last Thursday, Sony Computer Entertainment of America spent a bucketload of money to launch a party for one of its latest games, Um Jammer Lammy.
The party/concert was certainly one of a kind. Instead of flat, 2D characters appearing in full costume, the real band, with the real people who sang and performed in the game, appeared and played live. Lammy, who’s played by Michelle Burks (Katy Kat in both Parappa and Lammy) and her band Milk Can, performed to a relatively happy crowd of media, Sony PR folk, and those lucky enough to wiggle their way in.
Actually, the band was quietly led by musician and the creator of Parappa and Lammy, Masaya Matsuura. Playing keyboard and taking time out to show the crowd a few sections of his new game, his five-man band Milk Can performed a two-part show, with a surprise competition in the intermission.
Jeff Gerstman from Videogames.com and Greg Off from PS Extreme were called up on stage to compete in a surprise contest of head-on-head um Jammer Lammy. (Yes, the small, insignificant IGNPSX was shoved off to the side yet again, ho hum…) The contest wasn’t just for bragging rights, however, as the winner received a $300 custom, battery-powered guitar, with a built-in speaker and images of Lammy painted all over it. Gerstman won it, and Off took second (last?) placce with a stuffed Lammy Doll. No offense to either, but neither of them won with a respectable standing. Let’s just say the winner didn’t even get a “Good” (which leaves “Bad” and “Awful”…), which must have meant both contestants were having way too much fun playing pool and dancing the night away…way far away, probably nearest the closest dojo…the mind…the dojo…the mind…
In the second half of the show, Milk Can got back up and went “way back” by bringing on-stage players from Parappa the Rapper. Chop Chop Onion (Ryu Watabe ) and Parappa the Rapper (Dred Foxx) sang in turn from songs on the first album/game, and the band cranked out the rest of the songs from both games. Everette Bradley (Beaver) also made an appearance.
The biggest surprise of the show? Well, actually seeing who brought Parappa’s and Chop Chop’s voices to life. Chop Chop seems like the master of music in the game, a character who towers over everyone else, and yet Ryu Watabe is a smallish Asian man with a ferocious stage presence. And Parappa, who seemed like such a shy, small character, is, in real life, a giant African-American man with dread locks, who goes by the name of Dredd Fox. Seeing these people in real life was a wonderful surprise to say the least.
Overall, the concert was awesome. The band emanated a warm and energetic feeling throughout and the musicians played each song immaculately. It wasn’t as well attended as I thought it might be, and I was surprised to see fewer people near the ending on the dance floor. What were they thinking? Oh well. All had a good time, and thankfully we to meet each of the band members after and tell them about our own experiences with Parappa and Lammy. Now I can say I met Parappa the Rapper. That, for me, was amazing.
