Perfume on Black Friday

Today is Black Friday. It was noticeable for my part, as the streets were more crowded than usual and all of the stores had more (or less) reasonable offers to attract customers. I almost had a hard time navigating the streets throughout the masses, as I took a break from work. And today have been a […]

Finding a skeleton

Ever wondered what I shot on my old rolls of colour film? I did. Today I developed a set of 12 rolls spanning from around 2009-2010 (I believe). I found a couple of very interesting shots like photo-shoots and long forgotten landscapes, some which were just as forgettable as the moment they showed, and some […]

Swing it, Magister’n (Music Finds #39)

“Music Finds” is a series with new posts here on the blog each Wednesday. The concept is as follows: As I listen to a lot of music, I from time to time finds a piece that sticks out, sometimes because it’s quirky, mixed two very unlikely genres, unlikely instruments, or just damn right having an […]

Just don’t get stuck to long doing so, or else you would just be thinking without executing your commands. </philosphical> Today have been centered about organizing and planning. Like tiding up […]

Giorgio Armani – Sì (Perfume review)

First smell: Soapy. Haven’t I mentioned that in a previous review? Anyhow, my first impression was rather “No” than “Sì” as it reminded me way to much about some kind of over-enthusiastic soap which labels itself something along the lines of “eXtra super fresh”, but then mostly smells like sweeties with a hint of lemons on steroids.

How to get past writers block

I’ve been staring at the cursor for a good 20 minutes now. Some days, the words just doesn’t come as easy as they does other days.  So I guess today would be a good time to talk about how to overcome that obstacle and get your post done, assignment handed in or acceptance speech written, […]
