Stories from LA-LA-Land.

Some new shots from the WeSC-shoot in Los Angeles just came in. I tried to keep one eye closed at all times. That’s the “reality”-eye. My “fantasy”-eye was opened the whole time. All these people are just super amazing. Tigra (from L’Trim, remember?) is cooler than all of us together. And this is the fantastic [...]

A Big Day For Me and My Art Collection!

Posted · Add Comment

Lunch at Stureplan Café with Therese and one of my favorite contemporary artists, Daniel Jouseff. After six months of waiting and anticipation he finally had my painting ready. I love it! You won’t get to see it here on the blog. That wouldn’t do it justice. But I will have a special art show in [...]

Just Another Fashion Tuesday

Breakfast is covered already. A bunch of work was mixed up with a lunch with one of the best women in my life, Anna. Fantastic Anna. She works at OSM and spoke the following line over some Sushi: “But Johan, you’ve always been this way…”. I thought about it for a while and decided to [...]

Tuesday is Breakfast Day

I find it fab to round up the most talented people of the new generation every Tuesday for breakie and some chatting. So I do. And it’s great. Today we had breakfast at Berns. What works for late night sins should work for scrambled eggs, right? Why change a winning concept… And oh, guy on [...]

This is the latest weapon in my communications arsenal. The Ricoh GR II. Great fixed 28mm optics, fully controllable settings, RAW-format and extremely sturdy. Like a mini SLR, but very discreet. I’m in love. Who wants to buy my Nikon rig? (Ps. Click the pic above to check out mad build quality. Bet you can [...]

Just Another Manic Monday

The Stockholm Fashion week is back! After spending the entire day working on the startup of a new web project, taking off to see Carin Wester’s creations beeing paraded on the catwalk was just perfect. A really good show in a packed Berns was accentuated by a particularly good men’s collection for once. Fun! From [...]

Walter’s Weekend

Posted · Add Comment

It’s been an interesting weekend. Friday night was kicked off in the recording studio, followed by fantastic oysters and Champange at Pontus and, not least, tunnbrödrulle and pucko at Tullfritt. Can’t beat that combo. From that the evening escalated with a party at the photographers agency Adamsky. “Everyone was there” is an accurate description. It [...]

The Rock Bear!

Last night was a red carpet night. Rockbjörnen (a Swedish music awards show, for you foreign readers) was great. The show itself and the acts were perhaps not the worlds greatest, but the party was amazing, and the people. Thanks Hanna for taking me!

Forsman & Bodenfors can’t seem to get it up

Posted · 1 Comment

I spoke the other day about my AAIIDAA model: (A)nticipation(A)ttention(I)nterest(I)nvolvement(D)esire(A)ction(A)lignment Let’s talk for a second about the first one – (A)nticipation: What on earth is going on with the Forsman&Bodenfors-website? It’s been under construction for a gazillion years already. Talk about building expectations. Especially when reading the accompanying text. This better be good. Or rather, [...]

What on Earth Happened to Stureplan?

Posted · Add Comment

Somebody totally sprinkled the Espresso House-building with lights. Lights and some kind of animated lit up sign and, not least, a huge led screen. Wow. They turned Stureplan into Times Square. I’m not hostile to upgrades of the cityscape. Quite the opposite actually. I think the city should embrace the times in which she lives. [...]

To Flock or Not to Flock

Posted · 4 Comments

I don’t know if you’ve tried out Flock – The Social Web Browser yet. I’m starting out just now (thanks for the tip, Calle from Superstrikers), so I’m not sure if I can recommend it or not but I guess if you’re reading this, at least the blog editor worked. Instinctively I’m skeptical about local [...]

Mikael Knight Rider and Some Cool New Contacts

Posted · Add Comment

Oh, contacts with built in display (via Zeus Jones). That’s cool. Moreover it solves a problem me and my brother discussed during a night time drive a couple of years ago. My brother Mikael has a particular interest in artificial intelligence and wrote his masters thesis for Volvo on the topic of making a car [...]

The Story of The iBuzz Bee-Wax Battery

This might turn out to a bit of a long one, so go grab a cup of coffee first if you wish. Done? Ok, let’s go. The other day I was struck by a perspective that I’ve touched upon before. Text. The renaissance of the copywriter. In a world of quick laughs and flashy web, [...]
