A meme. Well.
I was never gonna take part in any of those blog chain things. But because I like sneaker-seb and because he was the one who tagged me and because that movie that’s just on TV really sucks and because the cutest 12-weeks-old boy on this planet just just got tired of playing and fell asleep right next to me and because I just opened another bottle of wine and because I’m a little drunk – I’ll do it.
OK. Six boring facts about myself. That’s easy.
1- I take a tattered grey bunny with me whenever I travel to productions. It talks to me.
2 – The bunny’s name is also the password to my WLAN at home.
3 – My mom is the only person that still calls me by the very silly nickname my friends gave me back in high school.
4 – I used to be an acolyte in a catholic church. My (identical) twin brother and I were always appointed on christmas and easter masses because we looked so symetrical next to the altar.
5 – 18 years ago, when my twin brother’s not-so-intelligent girlfriend came over to our house, I pretended to be him. She didn’t notice.
6 – Last February, I had a lucid dream.
• Mention the rules on your blog.
• Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about yourself.
• Tag six other
• Go to each person’s blog and let them know they are tagged.

SONY ERICSSON enters the arena of branded entertainment. “Who is Johnny X” is a webisodic online thriller in 9 parts. A man wakes up in a nightly Bangkok street. The amnesiac hero tumbles through the Thai capital on his mission to rediscover his identity. His companion: SONY ERICSSON’s iPhone rival Xperia X1. The smatphone helps Johnny piece together his forgotten past. And along the way demonstrates its innovative features and personalizable interface.
The fast-paced web drama was directed by Stuart Douglas (Nice Shirt Films) and shot over a 10 day period in Bangkok.
But even though the mini series is quite diverting and very well-produced, it leaves a stale aftertaste. Because everybody who hasn’t lost their memory will notice that Johnny’s fight against the oblivion seems just a bit too similar to Christopher Nolan’s reverse-chronology masterpiece “MEMENTO”.
