I listen and play a lot of music, in particular jazz. For my last birthday I got this double record with Art Tatum. By the time, I hadn’t heard more than a number or two. So I was thrilled.

Art Tatum was a genius on the piano. There is no single musical category to put him in – he created something completely new. He didn’t play swing, bebop or Dixieland – Art Tatum played Art Tatum. He took the usual jazz player’s technique when interpreting a classic and turned it upside-down. A jazz musician would normally take the melody of such a piece and improvise on that using underlying chords and song structure, even if the melody became changed so much that it becomes almost unrecognisable form but added twist and turns, changing the rythm, the harmony and even the song structure. Despite this he somehow managed to keed a light, relaxed feel to the piece even though he injected it full of rich flowing runs, arpeggios and rapid fills.

This probably won’t be the last jazz musician your going to hear about from me.

One of my very good friends is running on a scooter. He started out scating for a couple of years, but then he opened his eyes for scooting. (btw, I’m not quite sure about the english word  for the vehicle/sport, but I think you can figure it out by looking at the photos above.) There aren’t many scooter runners ind Denmark, so it’s not something you see very often here.

It’s cool and different, and it’s nice to watch. For me, who has kindda bad nerves, it’s also pretty scary.
Joe (Johan) has been travelling a lot in Europe, in order to participate in competitions and gatherings. Recently he has also been in the States. When he was in Switzerland he won the compitition for runners under 15 on the mini ramp. He is also Scandinavias best. But all this you can watch in a short video(it’s in danish)

One of my absolut favorite artists is Richard Avedon, who was a photographer. He died in 2004 . The first time i saw hís work was on an exhibet at Louisiana. (Louisiana is a museum in Humlebæk, Denmark.) I wasn’t older than 12 years, and was just beginning to find photography interesting. His pictures were, and is, so capturing and sensitive in an undefinable way. Richard started out by being a fashion photographer, and kept on doing that in many years. But later on he started making photo art.  All of his photos are almost always in black and white, which is really nice and stylish. A year later, I got my self a single reflecs camera, and started shooting pictures everywere I went. So Richard has been very inspiring to me.

Check him out, he was so talented.

My ex-boyfriend has  a lot of these “dolls” by kidrobot. The different models of these dolls is called munnys, dunnys, fat caps and so on.
The idea with all these dolls is that you should design and decorate them yourself.

f.x the Munny doll is a blank figure the owner can decorate using pens, pencils, markers, paint, and other supplies. A Munny doll is made out of vinyl and has movable joints. The first Munny doll was white, and has since been available in other colors such as black, pink, blue, and phosphorescent green. The figure is housed in a box which includes 4 random accessories
that vary from a different series (1 through 4, 4 being the latest) such as a carrot or a hat.

Dunny is a kind of vinyl designer toy created by Paul Budnitz and Tristan Eaton,and produced by Kidrobot circa 2004 onwards.

The toy is based on a rabbit figure with distinctive tubular ears. The origin of the name dunny came from a combination of street slang and one of the early “Devil Bunny” prototype. Dunny comes in three sizes – 3″, 8″ and 20″. The toy has three points of articulation; a 360 degree rotational head and two arms. Dunny sometimes comes with accessories that fit inside the sockets of the hand, such as a laser gun or an ice-cream cone. Sometimes the accessories can be as sophisticated
as a gas mask, a crown or even a hoodie. An artist card or sticker is also included with the dunny.

Most 3″ dunnys and some 8″ dunnys are normally sold as “blind assortment”, meaning the dunny is packaged inside a sealed foil wrapper, such that the buyer is not able to see which assortment they are buying. Sealing the figure prevents people from opening and peeking in the boxes and buying only the figures they want. Especially since not all figures are sold in the same ratio, some figures are harder to find than others. The rare or hard to find figures in a set is referred as a “chase”.

Starting with the LA Series, the major series release now contain “Golden Tickets” which are redeemable for a limited edition dunny.

With the release of Series 5, most dunnys are packaged inside a clear plastic bag in addition to the foil wrapper. In the second-hand market, this assures the buyer that the article was never on display and is in a “new” condition.

It’s the same with the fat caps. The fat caps are my favorite, even though I really don’t have much knowledge about these dolls from kidrobot, I  think they are really cool. And cute!

There are some who get artists to design and decorate their dolls, wich lead to an unique and some really awesome results.
