Happy Birthday, Raymond Federman aka Ray aka Federman!
Today marks the 88th anniversary of Raymond Federman’s birth. As we say, every day can be Noodle Day. Noodle Day’s the only holiday that happens once a few times a year. Every day can be a noodle day, if you are thinking of Federman, and eating noodles.
The idea is to remember him, and that his death is not death. That’s why Noodle Day started and is celebrated by most municipalities on Oct 6. Yet, if that is too morbid for you, too X-X-X-X-X, and sad, then please—celebrate today. Federman wouldn’t mind, and neither would we.
Federman exist-s/ed pre-web & early web. Each technological jump we make becomes a clean slate, leaving our history behind. There’s positives and negatives to this which are beyond the scope of this explanatory first post. The first post being about the fact that the point of making an actual website for this virtual event is to help ensure, in its way, that Federman’s actions don’t turn to dust (as much) the way his body has (ashes, as it were, per his wish due to X-X-X-X).
With a real URL, a bonafide social media Feder-ator @noodledayforray, and the good will of something or other, here we are. See the main page. Noodle Day for Raymond Federman is October 6 every year (at least).
