I need glasses, everything is WPF blurred

Description

blur[1] I was at Fabio Pedrosa's blog and I noticed Fabio had a post on how to do WPF blurring and it was shockingly simple.  Here is the code from his site to produce the image on the right.

<Window x:Class=“Blurred.Window1xmlns=“http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentationxmlns:x=“http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml>
  <Grid Margin=“10>
    <Grid>
      <TextBlock>
        Lorem ipsum dolor sit ame . . . cinia. Cras ut augue.
      </TextBlock>
      <Grid.BitmapEffect>
        <BlurBitmapEffect />
      </Grid.BitmapEffect>
    </Grid>
    <Grid Margin=“100>
      <Rectangle Fill=“BlackRadiusX=“8RadiusY=“8/>
      <TextBlock Foreground=“WhiteMargin=“5>
        Lorem ipsum dolor sit ame . . . cinia. Cras ut augue.
      </TextBlock>
    </Grid>
  </Grid>
</Window>

I suggest checking it some of the other stuff on there too.  He has a clip of every windows startup sound too!
