JK Wedding Entrance Dance

Everyone THINKS that their wedding is different, but sorry there all the same - no matter what faith or none at all. Now THIS wedding is different. I love it, makes me feel happy too for them. And over 12 million people have seen this already on YouTube. Wow.

The taste of my new potatoes

Simple things are making me happy now during vacation. I'm a Finn and I love my homegrown potatoes. Here in Finland we all just love our "new" potatoes (new meaning like beaujolais nuevo - the fresh potatoes of the season).

Here are pictures of my first new potatoes - I'm so proud of my amateur gardening skills! We enjoyed boiled potatoes just with lettuce and tomatoes from our garden and some smoked salmon (from Norway I must admit). I love the summer.

Villu Jaanisoo / sound installation at Kumu

It made me scared before I even stepped into the room - I could just hear it around the corner. Then I got curious. And it took me a long time to figure it out. I was touched. My video does no justice to Villu Jaanisoo's masterpiece - just make a trip to Kumu to see this for yourself.

Sound and silence are such powerful elements. Could a sound installation be a permanent element in a public space? Could you see and hear Jaanisoo's Wave at the lobby of your office? Or at the airport? Most likely not. Sound is so much more disturbing than visuals and that's the power of it.

The best marketing campaign of the summer?

I sooo wanna fly Southwest now and this one is just a tip of the iceberg in the skies. Just search "Southwest flight attendants" on Youtube and there are so many videos... Why isn't Blue1 in Finland doing this, too? Could we do this, too, to market a tv-show? Or is it just flight attendants that are funny, sexy and interesting?

PS. This Air NZ ad blows up my skirt, too :)

Jungner's newest video "Questions about new social media"

I'm falling in love with this Yle boss - and I'm not being ironic. I'm loving the debate on social media that he is creating.
