Andy Warhol’s 12″ Banana

It is not the newest product, but I have ordered at once when I found it @ dpmhi. There are three different sizes of "Banana" by Andy Warhol. Size does Matter for me because 12″ is too short and is the 36″ too expensive. Thus I picked the mediate one, 24″, which costs £30. The banana has been swiftly delivered within ten days. This "Andy Warhol Plush Banana" with just perfect hand feeling exposes a pinky flesh when it pills off. This toy that fits perfectly on my Sofa is my beloved.

From Monpoly to Blogpoly

It is just a name. I got the idea to change the name of the board game “Monopoly” to “Blog-log-poly” and then to “Blog-poly”.

It is just a game. It is fun to use the board to lay out the Blogosphere Ecosystem. It helps me to think and learn about blogging culture by transforming the original game into this version. I had to think about which company and enterprise to choose and set up first on the board.The space is limited, so I picked well known names in blogging industry.Besides the private properties, there are two public utilities–the water works and the electric company. Then I thought of “Wikipedia” and “Creative Commons”, and then a few more, making “criminal” into “spammer”, “free parking” into “free hosting”. “Chance” and “community chest” become “comment” and “trackback”. Fun — yes? There is not much difference for me transforming the game than writing a poem, using similes, metaphors and symbols.

The board is done.

About me

Let me make it short and simple.In the year 2001, right before Christmas Eve while I was travelling in Tallin, Estonia. I had a haemorrhage suddenly and then fell into a coma. I got transferred back to Norway and diagnosed with AVM. I woke up few weeks later but paralyzed. I recovered quickly,but it was a necessary for me to undergo a cerebral operation. After this I started my AVM-risk-free life, but paralyzed again and able to recover only slowly this time. Going back home after staying in different hospitals for 6 months, I became a much less out-going person and started to enjoy being by myself and living online as a "hikikomori" as this type of person is called in Japanese society. Occasionally, I still suffer from OCD but I am pretty happy in general. Here is my virtual home and you are very welcome to look around.Thanks.
