Today is that day that I always forget about. I really cannot remember any of the other ones like it, but I now have a friend whose birthday is today. "Happy Birthday Wendy!"

Also here is a poster that Nikola Tosic made for a show that takes place today.

Here you can buy this and more of his posters which are very funny I think.
edit: also her is a link to the show, and here.

I have invited some of the links on the left to attend, I don't know if they will show up though :-PP Maybe if there are cool things to take pictures of I will blog it tomorrow.. until then I will continue to restore my music collection to its previous glory..

A nice point from Jane McGonigal

"[...] it’s easier to optimize experience in a world entirely of our own making. The fact is the real world is too f’ed up, it’s too broken, we don’t want to deal with it. So right now, pretty much every one of our games works better than reality, because we are the best designers of human experience [...]" Jane McGonigal, at GDC Rant 2008

I don't so much agree with her notion that it is up to the game designers to fix the real world, but I imagine that research that they had developed would help if someone were to make such an undertaking.

I think that more holidays should be like this. The world would be a better place.
Here are some photos that Anamaria took at Carnevale de Venezia little bit ago.
