What's with 1934?

I somehow missed the fact that my last two blog posts referenced art from 1934.

That's kind of strange.

Here's a link to some other stuff from 1934:

The year 1934 (Wikipedia)

"It Happened One Night" (one of the most popular and charming romantic comedies of all time) was released.

One of the worst dust storms of the Dust Bowl period happened in 1934.

Harold C. Urey won the Nobel Prize for Chemistry having "devised a method for the concentration of any possible heavy hydrogen isotopes by the fractional distillation of liquid hydrogen: this led to the discovery of deuterium." (Bonus points because he attended my alma mater, the University of Montana.)

Really interesting cartoon. Thanks to Pink Tentacle for the initial post!

T.S. Eliot on Finding Something...

Where is the Life we have lost in living?
Where is the wisdom we have lost in knowledge?
Where is the knowledge we have lost in information?

T.S. Eliot's "The Rock" (1934)

No GDC SF 2008 for me???

Argh! My damn back is hurting again. This time it's worse than ever though, and I'm starting to get worried. I had to back out of my GDC coordinator role, giving it back to Eric (who is thrilled, I'm sure)...

Anyway,, resting hard to feel good enough to get down to SF for a day or two to see the show and go to our fabulous Suite Night Party at the W Hotel.

Bah. :-(

So...busy. Must blog...soon...

So I'm really busy. New product launch + new team member + GDC planning/execution + first course in two-year MIS degree program = exhaustion!

Seriously, though, I'm really happy to be the main planner for the GarageGames/InstantAction presence at GDC SF this year. I can't wait for the show -- it's one of the few times a year that I get to see all of my industry friends. Plus, I am planning a whirlwind culinary tour of The City so that I can visit all of my old haunts: Kiss Seafood, Home, Picante (Berkeley), Hana-Zen, Taqueria Cancun, and so forth.

Who's with me?!
