Tickled, baffled and stifled - notes in a Norwegian perspective

Radio: Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 08:29:06 +0000

Happy World Radio Day, everybody! The 2018 theme is radio and sports, but never mind that. As has been evident for some time, although wide adoption doubtless will take some time, podcasting is the new radio: Available on demand, episodic content, high quality and covering a bewildering number of finely sliced niche markets. I wish […]

Public drunkenness has lost its mojo

Sun, 07 Jan 2018 18:09:10 +0000

Why don’t drunk people sing anymore? Admittedly, it’s been a while since I dragged myself through the indecency of public drunkenness. But in my memory it had some glory to it when all or most in the crew were able to carry a local tune all the way home through the city centre. Haven’t heard […]

It’s beginning to look at lot like Christmas

Sat, 23 Dec 2017 17:09:47 +0000

When winter finally hits Oslo, it can hit hard. And suddenly. (Ny-sådd ≈ Recently sown) Christmas sneaked up on me and hit me hard, too, like it usually does. I don’t know why I never learn. It’s a tradition, I guess.

A train to photography street

Mon, 30 Oct 2017 23:12:02 +0000

When I have some time off from everything, I like to take the subway downtown to mosey around. One of these days, I was randomly browsing in a book store, and I happened upon a book about street photography. And for some reason, a switch flicked in my head. Since then I have been chasing […]

Norwegian news agency NTB declares King dead – retracted soon after

Tue, 26 Sep 2017 11:02:50 +0000

King Harald is dead, said NTB. Nah, the King is fine. He’s just out Elk-hunting, said court. On this sad day, our thougts and prayers go to the unfortunate people responsible for the impromptu publication of the obituary of Norwegian King Harald at NTB. We feel your pain.

Overheard at subway in Oslo city centre: I’m not angry, f*ckface!!! I love you, now let’s work this out like adults, you f*cking shit!! This communicates on several levels, I think.

Verdens eldste emoji er 3700 år gammel

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 12:37:51 +0000

Foto: Turko-Italian Archeological Expedition, Karkemish Emojier er ikke akkurat noe nytt, men at det var så gammelt… Smithsonian rapporterer fra arkeologiske utgravinger på grensen mellom Syria og Tyrkia. Hetiittene var tidlig ute med hippe mugger, viser det seg. Muggene ble brukt til å drikke en søt drikk kalt sherbet. Ser det for meg: «Kjøp kule […]

Handwriting engages the brain more deeply than typing – enabling better retention and focus

Thu, 27 Jul 2017 12:06:19 +0000

As Quartz reports, The pen is not only mightier than the sword, but in some cases also mightier than the keyboard. It may well be that the physicality of shaping letters cements concepts in the mind. For example, to type the word “typing,” I made the same motion on the keyboard six times, choosing which […]

That ‘Futurama’ guy is now the White House Communications Director

Mon, 24 Jul 2017 16:21:59 +0000

This is fun. US 45th presidency proceeding step by step to be fully aligned with epic cartoon satire. Life imitates art indeed, Mr. Wilde. (Via Mashable) Update: 80s guy lasted only 10 days. Sad!

The best way to read a book is very slowly

Thu, 13 Jul 2017 13:10:56 +0000

By keeping your book in one location each time, you free yourself from the distractions of a commute or the pounding waves of a beach. As a result, a strange new relationship forms, between you, the voice of the book, and the room. Your ritual creates a singular association between the book and a quiet, private place, which in turn gives your relationship a new dimension.
