All posts for the month June, 2009

June, July and August are probably going to be the most quiet times on this blog.
Not really sorry, but I’m going to apologize for enjoying the summer and totally neglecting writing anyway.
Especially being in Finland, where “summer” is defined somewhat different than elsewhere in the world.
Especially when we’re going on our 6th consecutive day of sun and 20+ degrees Celcius. That’s quite an achievement.

Suffice to say I’m out…
Enjoy the summer, as I will, and I’ll be writing whenever it might be raining ;)

Not my own post, but something rather hilarious everyone should read:

One of the pictures apparently has been doing the round already for quite awhile, but I bumped into this blog post only now.
And after reading and after I had recovered from my initial surprise I giggled myself silly.

It’s about an artist who had put up some pictures on his website. Another guy had made a website for his business and bluntly hotlinked -not even copied- the images to his own website and also used it in other things.
Then after awhile the artist took down the website or the images from the website and prompt got a mail from the other guy who threatened to sue the artist with legal actions if he didn’t put back the pictures, because he had used them in all his business material and had no longer access to them and this would damage his business.

I know… hard to believe, but geesh, did it crack me up :D

The other day I came across a rum ad by Donq. I don’t drink alcohol myself, so I have no clue what kind of rum it is, how it tastes or what Donq is, but I do know that they should have a little chit-chat with their ad agency.

Of course… The bottles were put on the beach. They’re not really there, and they’re not really that big either. But that was a fairly ok job, except for the very Web2.0 reflections of the two bottles in the water, that seem to not be interfered by the waves rolling in on the beach.
Funny thing is… this Donq must make really special glass, because there’s no diffraction of the island’s trees or beach line you can see through the transparent bottle in the middle. Nor in the round cap of the bottle on the right.
And I guess that green bottle is coated somehow, so you can’t see anything through there. But those two bottles on the left are normal glass. And even if I don’t know anything about rum, I do know that -although it being a pissy yellow- it’s still transparent and should’ve shown island and sea as well.

Owwell… Maybe the graphic had a bit too much before he worked this ad :D

Two of my good friends asked me to take some pictures of them during their pregnancy.
We got together about a week before they were officially due and had a great morning together.
Lovely mom-to-be was just radiating happiness :)
And of course lovely daddy-to-be did just the same :)
And I’m The Godfather [insert tacky one-liner here :D ). WOOOHOOO!!   :)
