All I can do is read a book to stay awake..

I apology for the lack of updates lately, there is however a good reason for it. Since my arrival at Hyper Island I’ve spent a whole lot of time in front of my laptop. I worked on it all day, went home with it and spend the night watching different TV series, playing games and sis some heavy facebooking. After a trip to Stockholm a few weekend ago I realized how free I felt without my computer with me at all times. Then i started to leave it in school, staying for maybe an hour or so later the days i felt like watching some show or playing some game and it made me feel so much more like a real person again. However the blog has been suffering since I regularly update in the middle of the nights when the insomnia just keeps me going and going and going like a dammed Duracell bunny…

We are acting like a design agency for another group right now and I’m doing a lot of odd jobs, I started as Copywriter (and I still am) but have ventured into the strange land of Interaction design and I helped the graphical people with a few lesser tasks during the last week. It’s quite good but I’m getting a bit fed up with the project. I just want it to be over with and start with the next module.
We have had really great time management and is all but done with two days to deadline. So it’s easy street all the way to Christmas Eve.

A few days ago I got my copy of Guitar Hero II and I’ we spent some nights rocking away with it, since I know a guy who makes custom electric guitars came with the brilliant plan to turn a real guitar into a controller instead of the small plastic one that comes with the game. We’ll see how it works out in the end.

About the new season of Nip/Tuck: What the hell is going on? Have some of the staff writes from Days of our lives taken over the show? The supremely cool and smart shock-soap(tm) has turned completely bonkers. Sociopathic übersmart blackmailing schoolgirls, sexual exploits for the sole purpose of getting a pair of tits mote into this week’s episode, turning one of the main characters into a male prostitute, characters changing the way they work (witch into he beginning was Nip/tuck’s biggest strength) as often as regular people shower… The list goes ever on.
Get it together!

Another day, another deadline

Wednesday, September 12th, 2007

Today we had another deadline, the written stuff for information Society. People had a lot of different ideas about how to interpret the email with instructions. I must say it was quite unclear (like the majority of the information we get from Hyper) what we were expected to hand in. However we had time for last minute text layout and some other nice stuff.

Yesterday was the 11:th of September and like every year since the twin towers I recalled what I did that year, how Tom Clancy was the first one to actually comment on the events. I don’t recall the interview word by word, but basically he said that he himself could organize a terrorist attack of that scale in with only a few days planning.

For comments on America’s political behavior post-9/11 I will refer to the excellent series Studio 60 on the Sunset strip.

Roy Andersson was in the latest issue of Nöjesguiden, he had loads of sharp things to say about the terrible state of the Swedish film industry, my favorite part was about the movie script and its place in Swedish drama ” It’s so dam idiotic, because a screenplay guarantees next to nothing. There has been an overwhelming trust in the screenplay. The whole damn Swedish film industry has attended those screenplay classes and that’s why all these fucking movies look just the same. They all read the book “How to write a selling screenplay”. Even Dramatiska Institutet who is meant to be the most important film school in Sweden bought it.”

On a happy note I got CSN, and won’t have to work extra at Sifo during the evenings.
