EVERYDAY THE SAME DREAM is an art game about alienation and refusal of labour. You are a faceless, unnamed man going about his business. The game has alternatives endings. Will you end up going to work and working in a little cubicle like every day, or will you take another route and do something different for once?

OK LEMME TALK ABOUT EVERY DAY THE SAME DREAM.

My history of game design teacher had us play through this game for ten minutes one class, and then played it on the projector.

At first no one seemed to really get it, it just seemed like a daily life simulator with catchy music (the music carries the game beautifully, don’t play it on mute if you can help it).

Then some of the other students began murmuring and questioning the point of the game after a few play throughs.

Yes, there are different ways to end the day, but the game has only one true ending, which is reached after ending the day every way possible.

Don’t judge the game by the minimalist graphics and simple gameplay mechanics. Every Day the Same Dream is a brilliantly crafted and for some a highly therapeutic experience.

Things you do one day can and often will affect the following days, (your wife leaves you, the homeless man vanishes, you lose your job, etc.) Until you’re left with only one final option, which I won’t spoil.

To paraphrase my professor, this game makes you look for a deeper meaning, not just in the game but also in yourself. It takes you to a place within yourself you need to be to understand yourself and how you interact with the real world.
Play it all the way through and see for yourself.

I think everyone needs to hear this

This is one of my favorite games ever.

What’s your Uber passenger rating?

tommaxwelll:

No, I’m not asking you to tell me yours. There’s a little loophole spreading around Twitter that allows you to find out what your passenger rating is. Previously the only way was really to ask your driver next time you use the service.

What you need to do is visit m.uber.com from your computer, and after logging in and allowing the site to find out your location, open the JavaScript console. Paste the code below and hit enter. If it works correctly the page will refresh and your rating will appear in an alert.

Here’s mine.

Now I’m really curious to know what I did to lose the pristine 5-star rating. 

if(window.Uber.pingData === false) { location.reload(); } else { alert("Name : " + window.Uber.pingData.client.firstName + " " + window.Uber.pingData.client.lastName + "\nEmail : "+ window.Uber.pingData.client.email + "\nPassenger rating is : "+ window.Uber.pingData.client.rating); }

Where the different rules of physics apply:
Regular, otherwise known as Newtonian physics only applies on the average, everyday, scale. That is, objects larger than an atom at low energy, where energy in this context refers to velocity and (sometimes) temperature.
Once you step it up, increasing to high energy levels, (when velocity approaches c, the speed of light) newtonian physics no longer works due do what we call relativity, and observations or calculations need to take into account this effect usually using some form of the Lorentz factor,
gamma = [ 1 - (v^2)/(c^2) ]^(-1/2)
On the other hand, if you keep to a low energy system but bring the scale down to sub-atomic particles, such as electrons, things change yet again, but this time in an entirely new way. This is where Wave-Particle dualtity theory comes into play, the theory that waves (namely electromagnetic, i.e. light) are particles, and particles are wave packets. not only do you need to account for this, but you also need to take into account Heisenbergs uncertainty principle; It is impossible to know both the exact velocity and exact position of a sub atomic particle, the more certain you make one the less certain the other becomes.
Finally we come to Quantum Field Theory, which i honestly do not know anything about, at least i won’t until third year physics when i start taking courses on it.

i put down “concrete code” and “abstract code” as different tasks b/c sometimes you need to do the actual tedious work of writing down a bulwark of code and sometimes the problem is that you don’t know what the code needs to do / how to do it, & those are two hugely different things

Favourite anime director: Shinichiro Watanabe

"It actually kind of sucks having to be a director. Once you do it, you discover how hard it really is. This is no kind of a job for a human being, let me tell you. I think I ought to quit, but I can’t really do anything else!"

If I was burdened with the task to constantly be a genius creator/director of animated TV series, I might feel this way, too.

Professional sculptor Stefanie Rocknak beat out 265 other artists from 42 states and 13 countries to create a sculpture honoring author and poet Edgar Allan Poe that will be displayed in Boston, Poe’s birthplace. A five-member artist selection committee decided on Rocknak’s stunning work that shows Poe with a suitcase in hand and a raven in front of him.

No wonder she won, holy butts, look at that majestic creature.
