[things] are like [other things]

Some words just stick to your brain. Like this sentence I heard in a podcast a while back. It stuck so hard I had to do something, and here’s the result. I mostly use it as a facebook cover photo, but you can also get it on t-shirts and other stuff on redbubble.

English games The bookshelf

The bookcase updated: Tetris!

It works! Mostly. There’s still some stuff to iron out, but it works! And it’s playable! And a bit weird, seeing as the grid is 14×9 instead of the original 10×20. But is works! In other words: It’s expanding! I’m still happy he proposed to me using snake, though.

The bookcase that went viral

This is not the post I had planned on writing about our bookshelf. I had planned on writing about how we went to look at this flat just for fun and, you know, scope out the neighbours. I was going to write about how, when we entered the living room, I looked at the wall […]

Anna Akana on how to avoid rape

So, this video is raging around the internet right now, and for good reason. Just watch it. You probably have three minutes now anyway, so just do it. And now that you’ve watched it: Can we please stop with the victim-blaming, please? Pretty please? I know people mean well. I know they don’t necessarily mean […]

Daft Cube

Since my last post were about Daft Hands, and my boyfriend just sent me this video, I’ll just let myself post the same song twice in a row. But seriously, this guy does some cool stuff with his rubics cube. Check it out!

Internet classics: Daft Hands

Every now and then I rediscover something awesome, and realise I actually mean that everyone should see it. This one is awesome even if you’re not a fan of Daft Punk. I just love it!

How I applied the process of software bugfixing to my life

As some of you might know, I went to the Dare Conference this week to have a talk about some of the struggles I’ve gone through the last few years and how I’ve coped with them. I had a great time at the conference, and met a lot of new awesome people. There are many […]


Oslo is definitely my town

I found this video via Stakkars Oss – an image blog showing the beauty of Oslo, this city everyone loves to hate. The city with nothing but cold people and concrete streets, with no redeeming factor. Yeah, right. «Stakkars Oss» is an expression meaning «feel sorry for us», and highlights what people in Oslo loves […]
