Did the music change, or us..?

There is quite few new songs which I’ve heard lately.
Funny thing about those songs is that I’ve heard them before many years ago.

There is weird trend going on in music industry at the moment.
Many hit songs are ripped together with the old songs. (Awkward)
Feels like song makers has lost their mojo and inspiration.

Might be and probably is truth that I’m wrong, but think about it.

There was a time when these songs were hits, why would them work in modern world?
Sure, music today has to keep youths only interest approximately 30 seconds and that’s it.
Maybe this has the big influence in music.

Next zine tells the story of the “how-to” make hitlist song and enjoy at the progress..
Number 1.

Decade of decisions

Number 2.

Find the mixtape…

Number 3.

Be active!

Number 4.

Find your audience… or get lost in the process…

Number 5.


Number 6.


That’s my thoughts about this trending style of making music, come on people. It’s okay to do it once in a while, but every artist doing it all the time just for trend..?! 

This could be just me being that old fart, but I am on to something, I must be…

I have made cartoon since I was a little boy.

Back in the days, we did not have any kind paper so I must draw for anything paper-ish…

My old man was so frustrated, when every milk carton, bills, newspaper corners were filled with drawings.
My fighting ninja cartoons were living life by themselves.

Sincerely younger version of me wasn’t frustrated about the fact, that I had to make my art to the milk carton or some random letter sheets.
The inspiration took me to the places, in yet I was happy creating stories from my head.

Too bad I don’t have any of those old cartoons anymore.
Anyhoo, still after all these years, I find myself drawing dark black and white cartoons, which doesn’t make any sense.

The next story got influenced by the behavior of people who are so addicted by their mobile phones.

Check it out!

“The beginning…”

Page 1.

“Nightmare begins…”


“End of the dream..”

Page. 3


Page 4.


Page. 5

Conclusion and the beginning of the new era…”

Page. 6

The end…?

That’s all from the story called: “Connecting nightmare

Fun fact about the making of:

First page was last and last page was second.
Rest of the story, just found places naturally.

Normally when I take notes or write stories, there ain’t no beginning or the end.
There is only some ideas that will come to something.

Same thing happens when I’m drawing cartoons.
There is some sort of idea about the story, but the cartoon process is just one tornado where pictures fly around.

Hopefully you enjoyed this story, even though there ain’t no logic.

Traveling with (No Co2)


You’re going on a cross-country trip. Airplane, train, bus, car, or bike?

E-Scooter (cross-country) version
Ermm———“bike” is my choice.

I’ve bought this electric beast for traveling around the Arctic Circle.

It has 1000kW engine and the maximum speed is 25km/h.

I have solar power plant on my ranch, so every time when I’m loading my battery, it is absolute free.

Range is 35-40km with full battery and extra battery in my backpack that has 30km range.

I have only driven for four months, because freezing weather and snow came at November and had to store it for the winter time.

Still at October 1000km on the road was behind.

Fishing trips, hobbies, mushroom hunting, tripping around and of course moving to work and back.

Best part is the cross-country attribute.
You can go driving in the forest with absolutely “stealth-mode” on… no one can hear you, when moving like a wind in the forest.
Mushroom hunter


There is also one cool feature in this E-scooter.

Remote control anti theft system, that gives LOUD alarm when touched, quite handy when you’ll need to stop somewhere, like grocery shopping.

Good thing about electric vehicle like this, is that you can drive the same roads with the bicycles.

Also, no need for registering because it’s not scooter.

I have done so many sightseeing routes, photo sessions etc. in the wilderness with this beautiful machine.

Recommend for all who likes to take short trips without awful noise around.

Silence is golden in this loud world.

Yours. Jay

How would you rate your confidence level?

Sir yes sir…!

As a dad for three kiddos, something has changed a lot.

Confidence for doing something you’re not good at, comes naturally in time.

Parenthood has is probably the most effective way to learn things, you’ve never thought doing.

For example:
Acting as Father Christmas aka Santa, in your house while pretending that you must take a evening walk.
Rate of confidence is way high, when your act is SO POWERFUL that kids don’t recognize you, even when I’m clearly using my own voice and clothes.
Only beard is white and classes red.

Another example:
You just have to be professional Lego builder or hair maker for dolls.
There ain’t no room for error.
In my opinion parenthood has build up my rating in confidence and it has influenced my whole behavior.

Also, I have found my self fixing all those broken toys in ways you can’t even imagine!
Hopefully this answers the question.
My rate of confidence, is in the scale of 1-10 maybe around hundred.


Yours. Jay

There might be something groundbreaking in this scrapbooking, small comics.

If you have never try it, I highly recommend to do it.

It’s so easy to understand the beauty of minimalist work.

There is so little space between those pages.

You’ll have to think before, adding the story.
Folding the book.
In that video you can see how satisfying is this folding activity.

In a blink, paper turns to a small book.
Cover of the book
Some people say to us Zine artists, that waste of time.
For my opinion, any art is NO WASTE OF TIME.

You just have to believe in what you’re doing, sure I know there is almost zero change to get super famous or rich.

I tend to say, it’s not about the money… sure it helps, but when you can influence even one person with your doing, it’s worthy.

Just make people feel happy and yourself in the process, that must be something right?

Let’s get on the pages.
Pages 1 & 2
This time the idea was to make a scary and bloody version of the Casper, but somehow it turned to this cute little bastard.
Pages 3 & 4
The ghost and it’s friends…

Which are better friends than spiders and bats?

Original bloodier version had the Vampire biting veins, this is close enough.

Spider was so much more wicked and blood thirsty than this final version.

Sometimes these dark minded stories takes a flip inside my head and turn in the children stories.

Although I have read many fairytale and trust me on this, if you take those happy endings away, you got pretty horrible stories.

To the next pages!
Pages 5 & 6
This was originally the day of the death quote.

The Day of the Dead (el Día de los Muertos), is a Mexican holiday where families welcome back the souls of their deceased relatives for a brief reunion that includes food, drink and celebration.

You’ll get the point with Pedro and candies.
The end..?
Everything must end, even Halloween.

Currently we live in the world where Jamie Lee Curtis finally got Michael dead and that was Oscar worthy stuff!

Zine making is so much fun, if you don’t believe me, try it yourself and create something unique.

There is plenty of room in the void!

S U M M E R memories and more..


Yes! Like seen, my mobile-traveling-loitering-energy-saving- camp, is whole new level of awesomeness!!! I’ll get some food and wine in the cooler, guitar to go and adventure is everywhere I want. This bicycle child carrier whatsoever thing almost went to the dumpster. When I saw it, immediately THE FUTURE flashed in front of my eyes AND I DIVED THERE TO SAVE IT!!! Must say: “other man’s garbage, is another man’s treasure.

There I was finding my peace..

Sure, even how much you’ll spend your time in the woods… you can bring the noise and a skateboard.

Nothing last forever man! Yup, I know… sadly the summertime in the Arctic Circle won’t last. If you blinked, you’ve lost it for good. When summertime passes SO FAST, you learn to love every aspect of it. There ain’t absolutely no time to waste. If there is a heatwave, better go to the beach, it won’t last long I promise you that.

River moving equipment

Moving around the river with my trusty old electric engine. Of course there is opinion, if you don’t want to use the engine, but I’ve got the solar Power in my house, so who’s counting.

First we don’t see sun in few months, only darkness… but THEN THE MAGIC HAPPENS!

After summer vibes

I can’t describe it well, but we all go LOCO!!! After long time when we finally get sun back, it’s so rewarding. Just like seeing old friend. Sure we still have ridiculously lot snow and freezing weather, but no one cares… BBQ outside and wine!!! Bonus in this is that it’s ecological way to freeze your drinks when ‘‘em freezes to your hand. Hopefully this gives the joy in your day, summer is still far away, but it’s still coming… yours Jay


What activities do you lose yourself in?

Mushroom hunting and fishing!

Both of these activities are perfect for adventure seeker.

If you first enjoy fishing under the midnight sun.

Then when the days go shorter and autumn arrives, it’s time to fill your basket with some delicious mushrooms.

Nature floor has taken so much of my time..
Perfect place to find yourself

I can spend hours, without a catch..

Sunny day at the hidden paradise

Just moment before the rain.
Actually rainy days at summer time are great for fishing.

Sure you’ll have to have some sort of clothes to keep you warm or bonfire.

Mainly fish are scared about sound and movement you make, but with small rain they are easier to catch.

I don’t know, this might be just me babbling..

Mushroom hunting

Organic healthy food is there to collect..

Sure you’ll have to know what you are taking, because most of mushrooms are poisonous.
There is also those “copier-clone-mimic-mushrooms” which make this forest flooring activity, bit dangerous..

Just stay sharp and be careful.
Like asked, these two activities takes so much of my time.

Later peeps.

Yours. Jay
