My dreams getting far too mundane

In fun, musings, personal on 27/03/2011 at 06:12

Dreamt I entered a Helsinki tram knowing I had no ticket, but intended to buy one with an SMS once I sat down. Sat down, I noticed ticket inspectors starting their inspection. I was too late in getting a ticket. I would get a fine. Aagh. What do I do?

Hey, I know. This is a dream. I´ll wake up.

So I did. Feeling partly satisfied with my clever exit and partly disappointed with my dream mind for conjuring up such a mundane scenario. TRAM RIDES? IS THAT THE BEST YOU CAN DO, DREAM MIND?

Oops / Scott McCloud photobomb

In comics, fun, personal on 25/03/2011 at 14:33

I saw some friends behind me at the Helsinki comix centre and another friend taking their picture, so I decided to photobomb them for a laugh.

I did not notice the man next to them. Transpired that man was famed comics author Scott McCloud. Hee hee hee. All apologies Mr. McCloud. Heee.

Viaton imperiumi

Book by Hanna Nikkanen
English title: The innocent empire.
A book chronicling the doings of Finnish corporations abroad, literally making thieves out of all of us.
The cover was folio printed, so the effect was of a mirror, so the reader sees self reflected with a thief mask on.

New season of Boktid has begun

In surfing, video, work on 21/03/2011 at 19:56

My favourite Swedish language Finnish literature program has just started a new season. I don´t say it´s my absolute favourite just because I contribute to the program, it´s actually astoundingly good. The team behind it are the sharpest kids on the block. We got an award and the program has been exported throughout all of Scandinavia.

But don´t take my word for it. Check it out for yourself at Yle Areena. The official website with my animations and extra info is here.
