村上 春樹

(Please excuse our Japanese! – 私たちの日本語をお許しください!)
Haruki's IQ84
We absolutely love Haruki Murakami! (我々は絶対に愛して村上 春樹!)

He has been described by The Guardian as “among the world’s greatest living novelists”. (彼は”世界で最も偉大な生きている作家の間で”とガーディアンによって記述されています。)

Murakami was born in Kyoto in 1949, to a Buddhist priest and a Merchant’s daughter. (村上は、仏教の僧侶や商人の娘のために、1949年に京都で生まれました。)

Kurt Vonnegut is counted as among his influences. (カート?ヴォネガットは彼の影響の間としてカウントされます)

IQ84 at Amazon

We love him for his brilliant imagination and sharp wit. Both of which come through in all his novels. (我々は彼の鮮やかな想像力と鋭い機知のために彼を愛する。どちらも、すべて彼の小説に通ってくる。)

He released his latest novel (IQ84) in 2011. It is a “must read” for all Haruki Murakami fans, actually it is simply a “must read”. (彼は2011年に彼の最新小説(IQ84)をリリースしました。これは、すべての村上春樹ファンのために”読まなければならない”であり、実際には単に “読まなければならない”です。)

Denise Richards everyone!

denise richards twitter

Apart from being a sucessful actress and fashion model, Denise Richards was, famously or infamously, married to that rascal Charlie “Tiger Blood” Sheen.

Denise married Charlie in 2002 and they have two daughters, together. Although now divorced, they are still on good terms.

Anyhow, apart from being tempted to do a post on Charlie (we will try to hold off on that temptation), we would recommend that Denise Richards is worth a follow (she has 2,3 million followers on Twitter).

It seems that Eric Bana does not have a twitter account. Pity.


Nevertheless, we are huge fans of his acting, and since we did a posts about Ryan Gosling for the ladies, we though that Eric Bana deserved one too.

You can however follow one of his “fan sites”:

This is one for the Ladies. Ryan Gosling!

Ryan Gosling was born in Canada in 1980. Interestingly enough his parents were Mormons.
As a child, his first “gig” was as a “Mouseketeer” on Disney’s “Micky Mouse Club”.

Gosling came to the attention of the mainstream audience with his role in “The Notebook” (2004). He starred opposite Rachel McAdams, with whom he had a two year relationship.

In fact, he seems to have a thing for his co-stars. Having dated Sandra Bullock, whom he played opposite in “Murder by Numbers”.

An interesting Ryan Gosling fact:

He is very friendly with Justin Timberlake (who was part of the “Micky Mouse Club” cast. They even lived together for 6 months and Timberlake’s mother became his legal guardian.

He is a de-facto “hottie”. With millions of female fans drooling at the sight of him.

For this reason alone, we suggest following Ryan Gosling:

LEGO has to be one of our all time favourite kids’ toys.
LEGO games
Ole Kirk Kristiansen started making wooden toys in his garage at 1932.

In 1934 his company became known as LEGO, from the Danish “leg godt” which, translated literally, means “play well”.

After years of research and development, it was only in 1958 that LEGO began producing the “plastic interlocking building blocks”, that they are famous for and that have been loved by every generation since then.

The bricks produced in 1958 are actually still compatible with today’s modern bricks.
Lego games
LEGO was named “Toy of the Century” by Fortune magazine in 2000.

There are LEGO toys, robots, video games, tv shows, theme parks and movies. There is even LEGO art!

Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen’s, the grandson of LEGO’s founder, is now one of the richest men in the world ($6.5 billion in 2009 – Forbes).

We love LEGO!
