The Time-Journalist - a potential big-budget film idea

19 January 2012
Refactored from last night's dream.  I'm putting this idea out there - for free!

Our hero: a hunky, famous American TV reporter.  Not a behind-the-desk anchor, necessarily, but an "in the field" guy.  He's fearless, witty, and I'm thinking best played by Jon Hamm.  But despite his fame, wealth and success, our hero is sad.  He's lonely.  He's tried supermodels,...

Cover-ak28
I've entered the world of 'published author' with my essay 'Everything is Tentative and Possible', which describes the experience of co-founding Ptarmigan in Helsinki from 2009 until the opening of the Tallinn space.  It's published by the lovely Mount Analogue press/curatorial platform in Stockholm, and is part of a book that deals with self-organised, non-profit art initiatives with...

Boat view

I'm stuck on this boat again -- that's not a metaphor -- but it was my own (stupid) personal choice to take the Helsinki to Rostock ferry.  I hate flying, I love the environment, etc. etc and it would be a fun way to go to Berlin, right?  But then I impulsively ended up driving back from the UK two weeks ago, so I took this very same boat (though in the other direction, from Rostock...
