Games Convention: Day ONE

Für wenige Stunden im Büro hat sich auch die Post eines Freundes eingestellt, der den Kontext dieses Ereignises mit einem Zitat von Gertrude Stein aus dem 1911 in ein ganz anderes Licht rückt - und sie wie folgt zitiert:

Play, play every day, play and play and play away, and than play the play you played to-day, the play you play every day, play it and play it.

Play it and remember it and ask to play it.

Play it, and play it and play away.

Certainly every one wants you to play, every one wants you to play away,
to play every day, to play and play, to play the play you play every day, to
play and remember it and ask to play it and play it and to play away and to
play every day and to-day and all day.

That’s the way to play, to play every day and all day, to play away, to play
and play and play, to play and to remember what you play and to play it the
next day and to ask to play it another day and to play it and to play it every
day, to play it to-day, to play it all day.

This is the way to play, every one wants them to play, to play away, to play
to-day, to play all day, to play every day, always to play.

Every one is very glad to have them play, to have them play all day, to
have them play every day, to have them play and play and play.

Every one is certain that some of them are playing, playing and playing and
playing every day and all day and to-day.

Every one is certain that some of them are playing and remembering and
playing again again what they were playing.

Some of them are certainly playing, playing, playing.

Every one is wanting some of them to be playing and playing and playing,
to be playing to-day, do be playing all day to be playing every day, to be
playing away.


Nachtrag: Im Dialog mit einer Presseagentur am 24. Oktober 2006 wurde das Zitat dieses Gedichtes als ein für die Berichterstattung über die Games Convention leider nur ungenügender Beitrag gekennzeichnet.
Das mag aus Sicht der Agentur stimmen. Ihr Interesse muss es sein, möglichst viel von ihrem Stoff über uns Multiplikatoren unter die Leute zu bringen.
Aus Sicht von "DaybyDay" bleibt es aber dennoch dabei, dass die Auswahl und Entscheidung über das Material höchst subjektiv - aber keinesfalls zufällig - erfolgt.
Und dass hier ein - auch in diesem Falle namentlich bekannter Leser - auf die vorgenannten Einträge mit einem Gedicht von Gertrude Stein aus dem Jahr 1911 reagiert, war uns in der Tat wichtiger festzuhalten als die Vielzahl der auf die Aktualität bezogenen Reaktionen.
