Birthday Date

Stina took me out for a mystery birthday date on Friday. First she took me to a Cajun restaurant in Berkeley, which is my most favorite type of food. Delicious. We even got to eat leftover beignets from the table next to us. Bonus.

Then we headed into the hills to the Chabot Space/Science Museum. On the last Friday of the month, its open till 11. So we crashed some lunar landers on their simulators, peeked at the universe through a couple giant telescopes, and saw a ridiculous planetarium show.

Planetarium technology has vastly changed since my youth. Now they have super high resolution projects that fill in the entire screen. This show was all intense trippy computer graphics synced to a rad mix made by Moby. It was rather stellar way to spend 30 minutes of your life. It certainly put the old laser shows of my youth (at the Boston Science Museum) to shame.

Oh, come on - You'd pick Moby over the Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd shows in Beantown???? Those were the days...
